My dear friend Snap (short for Snapdragon, and an apt sobriquet [albiet the AOL version snipped a consonant or a vowel or two - I don't remember the exact form, just the mental picture of my favorite summer flower] for a warm and adventurous heart, a keen mind, and someone with a deep appreciation for beauty of nature [or human genius] and history) has blessed me with an award. I will admit that I am HORRIBLE about awards. In the first place, they sort of embarrass me. Here I am yammering at length to my computer screen, and an award seems rather grand and out of place for private yammerings. I have a few devoted friends who assuage my vanity with kind comments, a child in foreign climes who misses home and so clings to my every word (allow me my poetic license, kate-uhh - and this is the Korean for yammering - just so you know I love you 한국어 (Korean) n. - 불평, 투덜거림, 수다 v. intr. - 불평을 하다, 야단치다, 지껄여대다 v. tr. - 불평하다, ~이라고 지껄여대다, ~이라고 불평스런 얼굴로 이야기하다 ) - hardly the stuff that awards are made of...

But this one struck a chord with me - it's a "real person" award. Ha ha, I can fit that description pretty painlessly, and it doesn't leave me feeling like an imposter. And I have never told anyone to go eat cake :)

So thank you , Snap. Thank you for deeming me real, and for the award. It is much appreciated, particularly as it comes from you.

Aw, what a nice surprise. Guess I haven't been here (or any blogs for that matter) for a few days. I totally missed the blog makeover. I should get you to do mine. I keep meaning to figure out how to change it but never seem to get around to it.

You deserve it! Thank you -- your nice words brought a tear or two ... (has nothing to do with the allergies).
