and the winner is...

Me!  That's right...  I got another award.  Yoo-hoo!  YOO-HOO!!!  I love the bling and, apparently, the bling loves me.  I'm so happy.

I'm sure most of you know my pal Patchy Meow over at the wonderful and amazing blog, The Five Cats Chronicles.  If you don't know her yet, you must visit.  You simply must.  She writes such wonderful stuff.  And she's not just a blogger, either.  Patchy even has a book out.  Can you believe it?  Wow!  It has the perfect title, too...  The Little Book of Cats.  Isn't that fantastic?  Of course it is.

Now, a little while back, Patchy celebrated her one year blogoversary and, in the spirit of the occasion, she created a brand spankin' new award called the Blooming Brilliant Blog award.  Ooh...  it's a pretty one.  I love it.  I absolutely love it!  And I am so very, very proud to say that Patchy passed it along to me.  I was one of the very first recipients.  A veritable honour, for sure.

Now, in acceptin' the Blooming Brilliant Blog award, one must do three things.  Firstly, one must link back to the blog giving the award.  Well, I did that but I'm gonna do it again.  Just click on The Five Cats Chronicles, here or above, and you'll travel as fast as the speed of light right on over to Cyprus, where Patchy lives.

Secondly, one must pass the Blooming Brilliant Blog award along to at least four other blogs.  This was the hard part.  Not 'cause I couldn't come up with four deservin' blogs.  It was hard 'cause I came up with a whole lot more.  I know Patchy said "at least" but my original number was pretty high up there.  So I narrowed the list and narrowed it some more and came up with the following nine.  These are bloggers to whom I haven't passed on awards in ages so it was real treat to do it today.  They're all great blogs and I sure do hope you'll consider takin' a little tour and visitin' each and every one. 

And the winners are...
- Maxwell, Faraday & Allie @ A Tonks Tail
- Tillie & Georgia @ Mickey's Musings
- the ginger darlings @ We Three, Ginger Cats Tales
- Curzon, Jadzia & Nimbus @ Us Three Coons
- the boys @ CatStreetBoyz
- Brian @ Brian's Home
- the whole bunch of eight @ Forty Paws
- Simba @ Simba's Antics
- Selina @ One Eye on the Future

Finally, one must answer the following question...  "If you had a brilliant idea, what would it be?"  Well...  to be honest...  I have brilliant ideas all the time.  I mean...  I'm a cat, right?  And aren't all we cats brilliant?  Yup.  We are.  It's true.  Everyone says so.  I know I do.  So in order to answer this question, once again, I had to start narrowin' things down.  I had to narrow down all my brilliant ideas.  I decided that my most brilliant idea so far has been the peepdroid.  Of course, I'm still in the planning stages of this project. 

A peepdroid is similar to an android but it's a peep.  My peep.  Of course, other cats would want their own peeps.  And that's okay because peepdroids are far more personalized than androids, you see.  A peepdroid does all the stuff your personal peep does that takes time away from you.  For example, changin' the litter boxes is important but it takes time away from the scritches and tummy rubs and whatnot.  You know...  the fun stuff.  A peepdroid can be programed to do litter box maintenance while your own real, live peep rubs your tummy.  See what I mean?  BRILLIANT!  It really is the best idea I've had so far.  I've got calls in to NASA and The Doctor.  Hopin' one of them can help me bring my plans to fruition.  But if any of you cats out there have backgrounds in robotics, please feel free to give me a call.  You'll be more than welcome aboard my train of the peepdroids anytime.  And for your troubles, you'll get a free peepdroid of your very own.  Yoo-hoo!

Now, I'm afraid I wasn't quite on the ball of nip and didn't get this post up as quickly as I should have done.  The consequence of my tardiness was that Felix and Jasper over at Felix and Jasper Blogalot, didn't realize I had already received it and they gave it to me again.  Totally my fault.  Oh, and probably the peep's, too.  Most things can be blamed on the peep, I've found.  In fact, had I had a workin' peepdroid, this confusion would likely have never happened.  Anywho...  I am very grateful to Felix and Jasper for thinkin' of me so I wanted to give a shout out to them.  Another wonderful blog for your visiting tour, to be sure.

And last, but not least, I want to give a shout out to Trixie over at Purr-sonally Speaking.  Trixie gave me the Illuminating Blogger award.  Now, I had already received this one, too, but it used different graphics and so, as I am a true lover of the bling, I thought it might be okay to add it to my uh...  my ummm...  my...  collection.  And if any of you bloggers listed above would like to accept the Illuminating Blogger award as well, please feel free to do so.  All you need do is link back to the cat who gave it to you - and that would be me - and thank them - again, me - and pass it along to at least five other bloggers.

Wait a minute!   Just wait a cotton nip pickin' minute!!!  I need to mention one more thing.  One very important thing.  I can't believe I almost forgot.  Must have had a little too much nip in my cream this mornin' or somethin'. 

Anywho...  you all know my friend, Savannah, right?  She's the creator and author of the amazing blog, Savannah's Paw Tracks.  Well...  Savvy did an interview of my very own sister, Tobias, and it went up on her blog, yesterday.  You've just gotta check it out.  It's the story of how Toby came to live with us, after a long life on the streets out in the cold country of Canada.  An absolute must read.  Toby is super pleased with the interview.  Says it's the best interview of her ever.  Of course, it's her only interview but nevertheless, Savvy is great at the interviewing so I'm sure it would be the best even if Toby had done a thousand of 'em. Yup.  Savvy is that good.  She's right up there with Oprah, the Coop and, of course, Herman!

What's that peep?  Oh...  you'd like me to give your blog a little plug, too?  Fine.  The peep has a new story up on The Peep's Cheeps.  You can check it out if you like.  Might be worth a click or somethin'.  Might be.  Maybe.  I'm not makin' any promises.

  11. Congratulation Nerissa on your much deserved award! How thoughtful of you to pass one to us. We will have Mom put it up on our sidebar and link it to your blog. Now we have to come up with a brilliant idea.......we are thinking.......and thinking........and....

    BTW, Mom doesn't know how to link from the post, she has asked some in the past but no help.....she also doesn't know how to add buttons at the top.....luckily Catster provides them but we need a 'go to blog' of how to, especially for new and hard to learn bloggers.....(like Mom)=^Y^=

    1. Oh, tell me about it! My peep #1 is the most technologically impaired of technologically impaired duffers that ever there was. Another reason I need to make myself a peepdroid.

      As far as the linkin' business goes, though... that one she can handle. You're on blogger, right? First, you've gotta highlight the text you want linked. In this case, the name of the blog. Then, look above where you write your post, in that bar thingy there. You'll find a little word that says link. It's right next to the one where you add pictures to your posts. Just click on link and a box will appear. Then you insert the 'link' into the website box. It has to be formatted with the http:// stuff. You can even check the link to make sure it's workin' and then OK it and voila! You've got yourself a link! purrs

  28. Nissy! You're rolling in bling my friend! Concatulations on all the awards much deserved even if you had some of them already. It doesn't matter - it's just nice period! I'm liking your idea on the peepdroid too. Very good. They have little machines that go around and clean floors and windows so why not something to clean litter boxes?!?!?! Excellent idea my friend. Tobias' interview on Savannah's blog was PAWSOME.

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  29. So happy you like bling Nissy, I know Sammy does too! And frankly, I don't mind it one bit at all either! And I post it on my blog. So first congrats on the awards and I really like the Blooming Brilliant flower, but then ,you already know I especially like awards with pretty flowers on 'em. Anywho, about the peepdroid thingy...I am not an engineer, but we're talkin' about a peep for cryin' out loud...how hard can it be to make one of those and stick some batteries in it? Huh? I ask, how hard?? So let's you and me meow a bit and Bet'cha we can know this thing out in no time...have your peep call my peep

    1. Note to self... Must be battery operated. Electrical cords might prove impractical.
