When One Is Perfect in Every Way, It Is Hard to Be humble

Ankur Mithal a good blogging friend from Dark Office Humour nominated Grumpa Joe’s Place to receive the “One Lovely Blog Award.” Thank you Ankur, you are most gracious. I cannot express my sentiments well enough to convey how you have made me feel: thank you, thank you, thank you.

Ankur actually nominated me several weeks ago, but I have procrastinated and have done nothing about it. Why? Well the award comes with some strings. In order to accept this award and post the icon on this blog I must tell you stuff about me. The first is easy, I have to nominate fifteen blogs that I follow, the second is difficult. I must reveal seven things about myself. How do I do that without exposing myself as a pervert, a homophobe, an Islamaphobe, and racist. Wow, I just spit out  four things about myself and I haven’t even given you any good stuff yet.

Here are my seven revelations:

1. I believe in God as a Catholic.

2. I love colorful Flowers

3. Cooking has become my survival tool

4. I fantasize about publishing a wildly popular fiction novel

5. I converted to Conservatism from Liberalism when I was twenty-three

6. Even though I am classified as a gear head I love art, but hate poetry

7. My deceased wife still occupies my mind and heart

Here are my fifteen nominations:

1. Lady Blue Rose’s Thoughts Into Words

2. In House Counsel

3. The Obama Hustle

4. Tracie Louise Photography

5. Bandwagen

6. The Soulsby Farm

7. Chavisory’s Notebook

8. When Ginger Snaps

9. jambujoseph

10. Red Stripe Photography

11. The Conservative Hillbilly

12. Belle Grove Plantation

13. Losing Vision Gaining Insight

14. Yawper

15. Necessaryandpropergovernment

Now the final string is to notify these bloggers about their nomination.

Who Me?

A fellow blogger, Ankur Mithal has nominated me for the “Versatile Blogger Award, and I am truly humbled.”

A blogger has many contacts who are also bloggers. I can’t call them my friends because I have never met them nor associated with them in any way. They are peers in a group of people who love to speak their mind and share thoughts. Yet, after sharing intimate thoughts, I feel that some of these bloggers are my friends. I feel they have connected with me in a way that some of my daily associates have never done. We pour our souls to the blogosphere and sometimes connect with another who speaks to us, and we listen, we comment, we share feelings.

I began reading Ankur’s blog pieces on dark office humor because the subject was near and dear to my heart, office politics, office antics, and office stupidity in the form of manager bullshit. You see, I appreciate these things because I played the part of middle manager for over thirty years, and his writing struck very close to my heart. I was caught in the middle between the upper echelon of the owner’s first tier, and the worker bees who follow the directives. I had to give the sometimes ridiculous reasons for doing what we ask them to do. Ankur nails office life with observations like a pro. He knows the inside of a business office like one who has lived it for many years. When I began reading his stuff, I thought “this guy is another Dilbert.” He writes with humor and a pinch of sarcasm added, well maybe a huge dose of sarcasm. Either way you see it, the result is very often hilarious.

Thank you Ankur for the nomination and I hope we become fast friends as well as fellow bloggers.
