Oh boy oh boy!



Cake Betch, who I sometimes feel is my younger (don't ask me how much younger) alter ego, gave me an award!

She had this to say about my blog:
I'm sitting here trying to figure out what the fuck Riot Kitty's blog is about but I can't really put my finger on anything in particular. There's a bunch of stuff on there, it's just whatever the hell she feels like writing, which is totally cool in my book. Plus, she posts lolcats pictures. Instant draw for people like me with the attention span of a carrot.

And she's right - I do post whatever the hell I feel like. And today, having a bit o'writer's block, she gave me a topic (thanks!)

As for inspiration...you have probably noticed that the main themes here are 1) laughing, 2) wondering "WTF" about some things, as they pertain to common sense and lackthereof and 3) ranting about lingerie. If any of this has inspired you, I'll probably fall over, unless it has inspired you to laugh or rant with me, which I hope it does from time to time.

So the rules of the road are that I pass this on to 10 other inspirational bloggers. Like Cake Betch, I love all of you, so I will pick the first 10 that pop into my mind:

1. Ileana @ arroz con mango. Chica, you always inspire me to laugh and look on the bright side - as well as imagine Johnny Depp in ways I'd never think of. Plus your art is just amazing.

2. Joey @ Joey's Pad. You inspire with creativity and deep thoughts.

3. Lynn @ Good Things Happened. You inspire me to see the beautiful and pleasant in the every day, where I would usually miss them.

4. Libby @ Libby Logic. Your combination of perfect sarcasm and survival inspires me.

5. Mike D @ The Good Mike D. You inspire me to be a better person. Plus we like the same geeky comic book action stuff.

6. Aliceson @ Feet off the Table. Your artistic talent and ability to keep a cool head when chaos reigns inspire me.

7. John @ Full-on Forward. When you're not writing about reptiles, you inspire me to remember what's really important in life.

8. Claire @ The Country Mouse Tales. Visiting your blog, I'd think you've never had a bad day! Truth is, you inspire me with your ability to turn negative into positive and, of course, the badgers.

9. Grannie Annie @ Fools Rush In. We have much in common, and you inspire me with your wisdom and sense of humor, and ability to keep calm amidst life's hassles.

10. Darth Weasel @ Darth Weasel Jedi Mind Tricks You. You inspire me for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that you strive to be the best person you can be. You are quick to forgive those who wrong you, when I just want to throw mud pies.

So go at it! Thank me and post away!

LL Cool Joe said...

Aww, I'm touched. Well not literally, I mean not right at this moment, that wouldn't be right would it?

Sorry, where was I? Thanks so much for the award, I will have to think of some other inspiring blogs because you've listed quite a few that I would have done too!

I'm glad I inspire you with creativity and deep thoughts. I'll take that as a compliment. :)

Lynn said...

Why thank you, my friend. :) Your blog always makes me smile - you have a unique point of view that is refreshing. {{{HUG}}}

Mike_D said...

Thanks!!!

You also inspire me to greater employment-inspired heights!

ileana said...

First off, congratulations to YOU...you are an inspiration (look how much $ you rounded up for a great cause!) and laughter is the best medicine, so I love to stop by for a good dose of it. You always make me smile, laugh or give me something to really think about...and I love the way you write!

Secondly, I'd like to thank you for all the years of online (and offline) friendship. You have a heart of gold underneath all that humor...and that's what makes you so special to me.

I hope you have sweet dreams with Johnny Depp tonight...doing things you never inagined doing with Johnny Depp!! xo

John McElveen said...

I second Ily! I have never failed to laugh, here- and If I remind you for one second of what's important in life- that is the coolest complement I've ever received--Thanks for that RK--Thanks from the heart!

Did you hear: Two Skanks walk into a bar..... Sorry- I always hide behind humor when I'm teary!

Big Hugs and thanks for a wonderful and growing friendship!

Riot Kitty said...

Aww is right! Thanks everyone :)

Logical Libby said...

Damn it, RK, now I'm cyber crying.

Thank you

Riot Kitty said...

L: Tears of joy I hope ;)

Boonie S said...

Congratulations on receiving your much deserved award.
I’m pleased that you chose Joey in your list. He puts together a great blog.

Have a good week, Boonie

Granny Annie said...

Back at cha my friend:) You are among my favorite inspirations and I treasure your sharing this with little ole me.

Riot Kitty said...

Boonie: Thanks!
GA: Thanks much! You are sweet.

Jeannie said...

Thought I'd stop in since you love my friend John so much. And I followed you even though you didn't make my life easy by having a "follow" button. I'm kind of cranky today, in case you were wondering at this less than friendly comment. In fact, I think I'm pretty bitchy today. You are amusing, just so you don't think I'd follow you for no reason. I'm going to go now, before you put me on your hit list.

Riot Kitty said...

LOL Jeannie! I don't know how to put that button up there...

Awww, thank you RK! I didn't forget, just busy cleaning up broken glass and running all over town trying to find a digital card for my camera that apparently doesn't exist anymore. I hope to repost this award sometime this week but it might be next. You were right about the chaos, not sure about the cool head though. :)

Riot Kitty said...

A: You're welcome ;) Geez, that sounds like a headache.

Darth Weasel said...

why thank you. Appreciate the kind words and years of friendship we have shared.


and you letting me steal your husband every so often for some weak rides...

Riot Kitty said...

Ditto! Except for the part about stealing your husband ;)

Claire said...

Oh, thank you my lovely! I'm truly touched, and am very glad we've made friends across the miles!

Cxx
