Award Time!

Hello everyone!
I don't often have a chance to pass along the awards I've received...alas, I fall a bit lax in that area but know that for every one I receive, each of you is more than worthy of them yourselves.  Anywho, I was granted an award this past week that has a bit of a deadline attached to it so I find myself pushed (ever so nicely) to pass it along before it loses it's full strength (i.e. there's a contest involved for any recipient with an approaching end date).  The award being given here today came to me from my good friend Alexia over at Alexia's Books and Such.  (Thanks!)  If you haven't seen her blog yet, you really should...definitely some bookish fun to be had.  Without further adieu, it's time to present the....

...Worth Your Weight in a 'Gator Battle Award!

(Strange title but awesome on....)

What this awards means...

Congratulations, you’ve won the honor of being Worth Your Weight in a ‘Gator Battle!

The award was created in honor of (at least according to them) the real stars from “Alien Tango”. No, not Katherine “Kitty” Katt or Jeff Martini. Alliflash and Gigantagator, Alligators Extraordinaire! The “Worth Your Weight in a ‘Gator Battle Award” is only given to the wily, the brave, and the cheeky, so get down with your bad self, you’re deemed worthy to run with the A-C’s! Now you get to spread the awesome by nominating other bloggers who would also be worth their weight in a ‘gator battle. Battling ‘gators is not for sissies or wimps -- only the strong survive -- so choose wisely!


Your mission details:

1.Slap the graphic on your blog post.

2.Give link props to the person who gave you the award (don’t rile a ‘gator fighter -- it’s dangerous).

3.Spread the awesome and nominate five (5) other bloggers who you think will be worth their weight in a ‘gator battle.

4.Let the recipients know they’ve won this honor on their blogs.

5.Last but not least, shoot Gini Koch an email at and let her know you’re worthy of running with the A-C’s (put “Worth My Weight” in the subject line!) by sharing that you’ve been nominated and telling her which other bloggers you nominated, and she’ll enter you into the “Worth Your Weight” Contest. Keep reading to find out more details and what the loot is below.

Of course, you can choose to ignore your awesomeness, but then you’ll never have a chance to nab your own A-C or win the loot. And you know you want both.

Contest runs from Wednesday, February 1, 2011 through Monday, February 28, 2011.

More details can be found HERE, on Gina Koch's blog.


My Nominees:

NotNessie at Today's Adventure
April at Cafe of Dreams
Arena at The Nerd's Wife


It's always hard picking sites for these things since there are SO many that deserve to receive it.  Now that that's over with you!  Go explore some of their sites for more great bookish fun!

Until next time....happy reading!
