The delightful Good Youngman Brown was kind enough to hit me up with an award which is mathematically superior to the Oscars, and I'm REALLY pleased to be able to SHOW IT OFF HERE:
I'm pretty sure this means I never have to eat lobster and also that I am much beloved by the Germans. Because they TOTALLY GET ME.
Have you visited Good Youngman Brown? I find him very enchanting, not only because I love the name [and consider myself SO SUPERIOR AND SMART for thinking about Nathaniel Hawthorn when I read it - which, I need to think about Nathaniel Hawthorn more often, because for an old guy, he had some great stories] but also because he writes some completely brilliant posts - I'm linking to this most recent one because it slays me.
I know I'm not the best at keeping up on awards or even doing them right and I know that people tend to be kind of flip about these things - and from someone who is pretty flip about every goddamn thing, I get it.
But what I also know is that it is an amazing feeling to find that someone, somewhere finds your work interesting and entertaining enough to actually let people know about it. And that? Is pretty fantastic.
And so, in the spirit of not doing things right and letting people know about awesome blogs, can you, in the comments, let me know of a blog you love? I can't wait to read them.
