two hundred and counting

An awful lot of sad things have been goin' on as of late but today is the day when that's all gonna change.  I'm gonna brush away the sads and bring on the glads!  Okay, sads and glads aren't really words but you get my drift, I am sure.  Plus, they rhyme.  Bonus!

Today, here on Nerissa's Life, we are celebrating.  I'll get to why, in just a moment.

First of all, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to a couple of great blogging pals.  In the past few weeks, I was presented with two lovely awards however, I already had them.  But I'm ever so grateful that these friends thought of me, anyway.  They were spreading the love around the blogosphere and how nice it was of them to send a little my way.

So thank you very much Rev. Sharon for the beautiful Versatile Blogger Award.  Rev. Sharon writes the lovely blog Inspiritual Reflections.  If you've never read it, please click on the blog's name and the powers of the blogosphere will whisk you off for a visit.  I may already have the award but I truly appreciate you thinkin' of me, Rev. Sharon.  Thanks ever so much.

I also want to thank Swami Zoe from the fantastic blog, Swami Zoe's Yoga and Zen.  Swami Zoe presented me with the lovely Super Sweet Blogging Award.  That, too, I already had but it was oh so nice to hear that I'm still sweet.  Like a sweetie pie, which is what my peep #1 sometimes calls me, you know.  You didn't know that?  Well, you do now.  Again, if you've never read Swami Zoe's blog, please click on her blog's name to be transported to a place of peace and tranquillity.  As Swami Zoe would say, me-ommmmm...  Did I spell that correctly?  Did I use the right number of the letter m?  Just wonderin'...


Now, for our celebrations...

The planetary forces have aligned.  The sun is where it should be and the Earth has decided to tilt just the right amount and that makes today of all days the first day of fall.  The oak tree at the end of the driveway has been celebrating all week by raining acorns and the squirrels have been doin' their happy dance.  Soon the maples will be lighting up the horizon with red and orange and even gold.  Add to that a backdrop of blue sky dotted by fluffy white clouds and you have something to celebrate, indeed.

It was very nice of the astronomical forces to kick off their celebrations today, of all days.  It's almost as if someone knew.  As if someone planned it.  As if everything was coming together in a perfectly choreographed dance of the stars to celebrate my big news.  And just what is my big news?  Why, haven't you heard? 

Today is my 200'th blog post!  Yoo-hoo!  YOO-HOO!!!  No wonder the planetary forces are celebrating. 

And to celebrate my 200'th blog post, I'm gonna introduce a new award.  I'm gonna introduce to the world, the Opposites Attract Award.  I hope the world likes it.

Now, the Opposites Attract Award is just a tad different from some other awards.  In accepting this award, you have to do only three things and it's the third thing that's a little bit different.  We'll start with the easy stuff.

Firstly, you need to thank the blogger who gave you the Opposites Attract Award and link back to their blog.  Easy peasy.

Secondly, you need to post the award on your blog.  Simple as can be.

And thirdly, you need to pass the award along to at least one other blogger.  More than one would be better but if you can only come up with one, that's okay too.  Now, here's the tricky part but really not all that difficult.  There are far more complicated things in life like...  hmmm....  well...  well like the science of egg beater-whisk time-travelling teleportion technology.  But I digress.

The Opposites Attract Award is all about opposites so boys have to give the award to girls and girls have to give it to boys and YES, I am a MANcat so I can pass it along to ladycats.  Just happen to have a girls' name, that's all.  It's all the peep's fault.  MOUSES!

Now, if you happen to be passin' the award on to multi-cat household, you've gotta say to whom you're sendin' it.  So you could say, "the girls at..." or name a specific cat, etc..  And, of course, you don't have to pass it on to just cats.  Dogs, bunnies and ferrets all qualify for the award, too.  You can even pass it on to a mouse if you happen to know a mouse who blogs.  I don't know any but you might.  Just remember, boys send to girls and girls send to boys, no matter what the species. 

So without any further ado, the first ever recipients of the Opposites Attract Award are...

- Savvy at Savannah's Paw Tracks
- Katie at Katie Isabella
- Nellie at Cat from Hell
- Molly at Molly the Wally
- Patchy Meow at The Five Cats Chronicles
- Purrla at Singapore Kitty
- Selina at One Eye on the Future
- Allie at A Tonk's Tail
- Cathy Keisha at Stunning Keisha
- Quinn at Catitude

Please remember to pass on the love that is the Opposites Attract Award.  Let's get this baby spread around the world and back.  Maybe even to the moon!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
