Very Inspiring Blog Award

April 3, 2012

I am so happy that my blog is considered to be very inspiring by someone. I started this blog because my friend always laughed when I was telling my stories and thought I was funny. Being myself, I was confused and wondered why I was funny, and eventually I figured out I was funny after all, I laughed with them. So I wanted to record these funny stories and brought laughter to more people. And apparently, I am not doing bad, winking at my precious followers.

Many thanks to  A Ladies Perspective, which is a totally inspiring blog itself. I followed her for her funny posts and videos everywhere, including twitter, and she will follow back!

Now I am going to present the award to seven nominees:(and you also have to pass this awesome award on to claim it to yourself!)

1 domestic diva, M.D.  mm, who wants tasty food?

2 Humorous Interludes mm, who does not want humor?

3 Four Blue Hills (A repository, of sorts) Love her jokes and information

4 Iyumdying Comics!

5 Damantigui’s blog Fresh stories reading.

6 Magsx2’s Blog Love weekend jokes? Here is where you go

7 Sillyfrog’s Blog Want to know about animals? Also I have a special affection for frogs, will explain.

Now seven things about myself:

1) As I stated first as the inspiration of this blog: in real life, I never realized I am funny unless I am told to be..

2) I hate olives but I love olive juice. (Never heard of that? Check out the Chinese stores around your house, you will be surprised what we can squeeze, but on the other hand, you cant find them in China)

3) I am from frog university, or at least that was always the way foreigner pronounced it.

4) I know no instruments whatsoever except the ones come with rock band the video game.

5) I like to watch Biggest loser, and always cry during the show.

6) I check my emails more often than my blogs, check my blogs more often than my phone.

7)My philosophy of life: for everything there are two choices: to smile or not to smile. I choose the first one, since I think I am more pretty that way.

  1. My most sincere congratulations!
    Re my nomination:
    Ladies and gentlemen,

    I feel that this award was not made to me as a man, but to my work – a life’s work in the agony and sweat of the human spirit, not for glory and least of all for profit, but to create out of the materials of the human spirit something which did not exist before. So this award is only mine in trust. It will not be difficult to find a dedication for the money part of it commensurate with the purpose and significance of its origin. But I would like to do the same with the acclaim too, by using this moment as a pinnacle from which I might be listened to by the young men and women already dedicated to the same anguish and travail, among whom is already that one who will some day stand here where I am standing.

    Our tragedy today is a general and universal physical fear so long sustained by now that we can even bear it. There are no longer problems of the spirit. There is only the question: When will I be blown up? Because of this, the young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat.

    He must learn them again. He must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid; and, teaching himself that, forget it forever, leaving no room in his workshop for anything but the old verities and truths of the heart, the old universal truths lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed – love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice. Until he does so, he labors under a curse. He writes not of love but of lust, of defeats in which nobody loses anything of value, of victories without hope and, worst of all, without pity or compassion. His griefs grieve on no universal bones, leaving no scars. He writes not of the heart but of the glands.

    Until he relearns these things, he will write as though he stood among and watched the end of man. I decline to accept the end of man. It is easy enough to say that man is immortal simply because he will endure: that when the last dingdong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tideless in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still be one more sound: that of his puny inexhaustible voice, still talking.

    I refuse to accept this. I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet’s voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail.

  2. Wow…I am honored by this award! Thank-you!
