Just in case you don't believe she gave us the award, or think that substantial is just another way of calling us fat, here's what she said:
to the three sisters that make up Paris Ankara Express for being a brilliant blog and also because I love the fact that 2 of the sisters are in Paris and one in Turkey and they are French but write in English.So you see, she likes our blog.
And you can even check it out for yourself on her brilliant blog Very Bored in Catalunya.(But I should warn you, don't read it if you're trying to get any work done, or if you've just put the kids to sleep. You'll wake them up with the laughing).
And here is the award in all its (our) glory:
And now we're to pass on the award to other blogs with substance. Seeing as my sisters are almost certainly pretending to be at work right now - whereas I really am, yes, I dropped by the office after hours to pick something up and take Max out for a walk. He's sitting on more than half my chair right now, drawing pictures on my desk - I'm going to nominate on behalf of all of us. And if they like, they can always add names later.
So, here comes. Drum rolls:
I nominate Varda from the Squashed Bologna- who's written one of the most beautiful posts ever on autism - From autist to artist - and plenty of other amazing ones.
I nominate the Noble Savage - despite the fact that she's named her blog after Rousseau who is irritating me a lot lately - because she manages to be serious, irreverent, touching, and staunchly feminist all at once and all the time.
I nominate Gappy from Tales of Single Parenthood because she's brave and funny and clever, and most of all a great writer whose posts are always making me think. And she likes True Blood.
Oh, one last thing. If you liked this post, would you mind terribly clicking on the RSS feed, here, or the Google connect buttons (top left), or by email at the bottom of this page? And if you didn't like it, you might still want to look around. There's three of us, you know, so you're (almost) bound to find something you like. And then, if you've still got time, you could share this post or stumble it, or both and get in touch with your local tv station to sing our praises. We'll love you forever.
