An Award for Ass Kissing? How cool!!

Sparky Duck has bestowed upon me a great honor (cue trumpets) and awarded me with

Here's the definition that goes with the award:
"As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."
Woot! How cool is that?? Thanks so much Sparky. In a completely non-sarcastic way, I'm very touched by this and want to add that nothing gives me pleasure like finding a new blogger that I feel I connect with. Such a cool little universe we've created for ourselves - not restricted by age, race, sex or border. Just common interests and a bit of cyber-friendship.

I'm passing this award on to my first official blog-friend, Thomma-Lyn at Tennessee Text Wrestling. She's the kindest, sweetest, gentlest soul with a intellectual streak that's downright scary. (Just get her started on physics... I dare you). TL respects the visitors to her blog -- always welcomes them and returns visits. And y'all - she's a terrific writer to boot!!

The second award goes to our Goddess Supreme, Primo Book Pimper, The Charming Geek Herself, Crowwoman Rhian. I'm happy to be considered one of her tribe and I speak for most of us writerly-types when I say THANK YOU for unrelenting support and pimpage.

And thanks again Mr. Duck, for adding some Spark to the blogosphere.

Thank you Wylie, not only for this award that means as much to me as the Uber-dork one, but also for your gifts as a cheerleader and for WWWF - my new motto and guiding star in life.

Smooches babe! Hey! Stop bending over!!!

Awwwwww, Wylie! Thank you for the award and for your sweet words -- my head's feeling so big I might not be able to fit through the doorway of my house now, hee hee -- and I'm feeling so warm and fuzzy that my cats might mistake me for one of them.

Lots and lots of H & P to you, my wonderful friend! :-D

as you know, i'm a word geek
so i'm fascinated by the evolution of 'shmooze'
originally, it simply meant 'to cuddle' (my second language is german)- appropriate for an erotica writer, i guess!
