Sunday night, a bunch of talented, elaborately dressed people won some fancy awards. Graham Moore gave an exceptionally inspirational speech and I, feeling no desire to be amongst them whatsoever, wrote about my blog award.
I am embarrassed to admit it, but on more than one occasion, I have envisioned myself wearing an elegant, Audrey Hepburn-esque evening gown as I waltz up the aisle to accept an award for being the most awesome person on the planet. Sometimes, my little fantasy involves me being surrounded by a gaggle of studly ballers who can’t stop ogling over how subtly funny and brilliant I am. That did not happen. I was wearing red flannel pajama pants and a gray hooded sweatshirt. But, I did get a nomination for the Premio Dardos Award from Psychologistmimi (albeit a week ago), and I am delighted.
Psychologistmimi writes a lot about, well, psychology. In particular, she writes about psychology in the workplace from a humorous and snarky point of view. Aside from beer and cookies, psychology and humor are two of my favorite things (she’s written about beer and desserts, too). She is one of my favorite bloggers.
In her post about the award, Mimi explained that Premio Dardos means “Prize Darts” in Spanish. The award is given to recognize the blogger’s various cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.
Even though I didn’t accept this award at an extravagant awards ceremony wearing a gown the price of a used Toyota, I did get a prize dart from a writer I admire, and I did get to be surrounded by a husband who tells me how kind and beautiful he thinks I am. I was also rather comfortable in my hoody.
Thank you Psychologistmimi! I wanted to pass along her generosity to other bloggers and blogs I think embody the spirit of the Premio Dardos Award. 🙂
