You people are wonderful. You really are. You shower me with comments, ask me questions, send me nice e-mails about how much you like my writing, and you have been sending me PayPal donations to support the Gorilla cause to an extent that I did not imagine possible. (I have used the money to purchase the wheelbarrow in which I will be carting around my ego.) So thanks to every single one of you. I raise my forkful of fried sweet potatoes to the heavens in a toast to your honor.
While I’m taking care of all these over-due thank yous and curtsies, I should mention that I received a “Stylish Blogger Award” from Urania’s Inspiration, a blog mostly about re-purposing and thrifting. To which I blush and say “Awww, you shouldn’t have” as I shovel another few pounds into the wheelbarrow.
What all of this has also reminded me of is that 2010 is over, and I’m due for another round of Gorilla Awards. I don’t like maintaining a blog roll, so each year I hand out the Gorillas to my favorite internet folk for their work in living, documenting, and promoting the Gorilla life. Which leaves one important question, as I don’t always get out much when it comes to websites—do you read any particularly Gorilla-esque blogs you’d like to nominate for consideration?
