  1. This was so much fun to read these fun facts about you 🙂 You never cease to amaze me! Congrat’s on the weight loss! Is that in relationship to you USED to be addicted to the Big Mac’s? LOL! Thank you for your nomination–I truly am honored to be one of your “chosen” favorites. (You’d be on my list too, if you weren’t already nominated–and I sure as heck don’t want you get 2 awards! 🙂 (Oh, You’d better edit out the “published” writer on your description of me–my book’s not published YET–but I certainly love your vote of confidence!)

  2. Dear Schizo,
    I am so pleased that you called me a great writer. This has really buoyed my spirits. Thank you! Unfortunately, and I suppose hypocritically, I follow very few blogs because I’m in bed most of the time with depression. What little time I’m able to spend in front of the computer I spend writing. So I can’t pass along the award. But again, it is so gratifying to know that someone is out there actually reading and liking my posts, many of which amount to essays and would be criticized by most bloggers as being too long. Affectionately, Marilyn.

    • Thanks Marilyn. I know what it is like to be in bed with depression. Much of my life was spent in bed. Don’t worry about the award, just know someone is reading what you write and appreciates it.

      I am wishing for you to find some relief from your depression.

  3. Hello! thank you again for nominating me for this award, i didn’t even know that these awards existed till now! i absolutely love your blog, i have learn’t so much from it. i hope i do continue to learn and laugh in the future 🙂
