You Are Now Reading the Words of an Award Winning Blogger

My ultra-awesome and totally cool blogging sista, Sybil Law, has awarded me the coveted "I Heart Your Blog Award."

First, I'd like to thank the academy...oops, wrong award fantasy.

Thanks Sybil for the award, but, more than that, thanks for the comments you've left on my blog and comments such as "you're so awesome" in the Clearly, You're Retarded chat room.

Also know that Sybil called me "classy," so she's clearly a woman of unparalleled taste and distinction.

With every reward comes great responsibility, and I, as a recipient of this highly venerable award, take my responsibilities very seriously.

Therefore, I shall now bestow the "I Heart Your Blog" award to the following blogs:

Reversible Panda
I knew this guy in high school. He was funny, then, but now he's funny and clever. Basically, he sporadically scans the Internet for popular content, and then writes bitingly sarcastic comments about it. A quick and funny read.

Miss Britt - Before I started religiously reading this blog, everything I wrote sounded like a term paper. Now, I'm learning how to inject myself into every word choice, every sentence, and every topic. That's been difficult for me, but Britt's writing has kept me inspired enough to keep trying. And, Adam, I would've nominated you, too, but I've already mentioned you a few times on this blog and I'm pretty sure that people are going to think I'm being compensated. Plus, gasp, I think I like Britt more.

Avitable - Oh, fine. If you get past the Photoshop of him eating an ice cream cone with Hitler and the completely gratuitous use of expletives, you'll find that Adam is one of the most intelligent and deeply sympathetic (if he likes you) people you might ever come across. I have in no way received financial compensation for the preceding statements. But, I'm beginning to think I should.

Sepia Mutiny - A clever word play on the famed "Sepoy Mutiny" in 19th century British India, this is a South Asian niche blog. It's a good blog, but the commenters on the blog, aka the Mutineers, are the most entertaining.

1 Step Beyond - RW's funny and he has a photo of Jean Luc Picard on his blog. He had me at Jean Luc.

Kishor Krishnamoorthi - This young man is just interesting. Make sure you look at his photographs, they're amazing.

The Coffee Table - If HoosierGirl was a liquid, she'd be sweet tea.  Enough said.

My friend Tami's blog - I didn't post a link on here because I'm not sure if Tami wants strangers looking at a blog about her daughter. She gets the award because I wanted her to know how much I love looking at the spectacular photographs she takes of her daughter. I am totally jealous of her talent and very grateful for the awesome photos she's taken of my daughter. Like this one:

Awesome, right? Oh, and feel free to ignore the fact that I have no scruples and will at any given moment post photos of my gorgeous daughter for no good reason.

So that concludes this ceremony of Faiqa's "I Heart Your Blog" awards.

Now, apparently, there's a few things that you are supposed to do when you get this award, but, honestly, the people I gave the award to shouldn't feel compelled.

I found the opportunity to recognize people who enrich my life rewarding enough in and of itself.

For those of you who believe that "rules are rules," though:

- Recipients of the "I Heart Your Blog Award" may post the logo on their website
- Please link to the person who gave you the award
- Nominate at least seven of your favorite blogs
- Place links of those blogs in your blog
- Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated

Oh, and one more thing...

I find most people very uninteresting. If I've nominated you, you are very special.

Not to say that if you aren't nominated, you aren't interesting.

You are. Stop crying. You are very interesting.

Well thank you so much! But I don't like 7 people. I'll do the best I can though.

You like Britt more??!???? And what the fuck's wrong with a little fucking profanity?

The funny thing is, Britt is much, much saltier than I am, and I don't just mean the taste of her semen.

rw: No worries. I love your blog. I thought you should know. And, besides, Sybil only nominated four. Cuz she's a rebel.

hoosiergirl: Your welcome and thank you.


Please report to the principal's office for detention where you will be forced to write a thousand word essay on the following topic, "Despite the fact that I Have Obtained Higher Education Degrees and am a Grown Man, I, in so many ways, Still Act Like the Ninth Grader Who Sat Next to the Glorious Faiqa Khan in pre-I.B. Economics."

No cursing on this blog. Jeez.

If ANYONE else EVER gratuitously uses the F-word (and I don't mean Faiqa) in my comments section or talks about the taste of bodily fluids from now until the end of time, YOU are going to take the fall for them. Wait. That might actually be incentive for some people...

And, just fyi, Britt's cursing bears a maturity that feels contrived when you imitate it. LMAO.

I didn't know that your blog is a profanity-free zone! I just figured a smart, cool person like you would be aware that words are just words. I guess not . . .

You ARE classy!
Your daughter is GORGEOUS.
I can't wait to read the blogs you've nominated!

Thanks Sybil. And thanks again for giving me the award. Since you enjoy me going at Adam so much...

Whaa? Words are just words? I would have thought that an individual who was such a talented writer would have understood how words are an art form and thus bear an iconic value when people choose to express themselves through writing. Guess not though.. :P

Honestly, I never really thought about whether this was a profanity free zone. I was actually feigning most of my outrage for the purposes of humor.

I love words so much, I would never want to imply that some words are better than others. I just don't like to curse. Unless I really, really mean it.


Bask in the coolness.

Thank you.

And I agree. My cursing is VERY mature. I've been crafting it for ages. ;-)

Thanks Faiqa! I'm glad my camera in your daughter's face doesn't get annoying to you. I'm sure she thinks otherwise. She's so beautiful though I can't stand myself!!!
