Self-Indulgent Acceptance Speech

Thank you so much to Prof K at Conversations in Klal for nominating me for a Kreative Blogger award! It means a lot to me coming from her. I am a bit in awe of how prolific she is. She presents well reasoned, well written, and thoughtful analysis about the issues facing our communities- and she does this every day, despite what sounds like a heavy teaching load and homemaking responsibilities. Also, she's a professor, which is very cool and slightly intimidating.
The problem is that the award comes with a lot of responsibility. I need to do lots of things with the number 7, like list 7 things that are interesting about me, nominate 7 other bloggers, link to each of them, notify each of them... good lord, I'm exhausted just thinking about it. (Even God found the number 7 to be exhausting. He worked for 6 days, but on that 7th day- well, he just crashed on the celestial sofa with a Diet Coke and a People magazine.)
So I'm going to break the rules. I'm going to hog all the glory (I won an award!!! I'm awesome!!!) and ignore all the responsibilities (kind of like, well, a man). Considering the fact that the name of the award is completely misspelled, I don't feel too guilty about going outside the box on this one.

Go you! Hurray for SuperRaizy! Woohoo!

Just for fun, can you tell us one interesting thing about you?

ProfK said...

Not going to argue with you Raizy. I'm math challenged enough all on my own (my 7 equalled 5) and if you want to add 7+7+7+7 and get zero as the sum, no problem here---just please tell me you aren't an accountant in regular life!

And thanks for the kind words. As for the intimidating, would it make you feel any better if I told you I once was making an emergency repair to a skirt hem, got up to run to work and discovered I had sewn myself to the tablecloth, which followed me across the room and dumped everything off of the table?

Staying Afloat-
Thank you for the cheer.
If you've been reading my blog regularly and still don't know anything interesting about me, then I'm in big trouble.
However, I did actually do a "7 Interesting Things" meme about a year ago:

ProfK-
I'm not an accountant- I'm a special ed teacher.
And thank you for the tablecloth story. Totally made me laugh.

Awesome- I haven't been around here long enough to see that when it happened. I too can't stand coffee, but I love the smell of French Vanilla... And my social work degree is not only unused (at least professionally), but I never got my diploma because there was a glitch at the school.

And ProfK, you have now made me feel less stupid about most things that I've done. But only most. How long did it take you to figure out what had happened?

Hey!!!! Where'd the comment I posted yesterday go?

I said,

Thinking of G-d crashing on the celestial sofa with a Diet Coke and a People magazine makes me laugh. That image proves I was created in His image...

SuperRaizy said...

Baila-
Honestly, I wrote that line for you. I knew you'd like it.

Hey now, I resemble that remark.

SuperRaizy said...

Aahh, there we go.
I wrote THAT remark for you, Jack. I knew you'd pick up on it.
