I've Won a Prestigious Award!

Anyone who has the "The Christmas Story" or perhaps has read the book "In God We Trust, All Others Must Pay Cash" will understand what I am talking about. Unfortunately for me, what once was a favorite movie and book has now become a drag since I watch it at least every two weeks thanks to my dear daughter, Elena. She knows how to run the DVD/VCR player and puts this in every couple weeks. I keep telling her she's ruining it for Christmas, but she adores the movie.

Anyway, it's not a "frageely" leg lamp, but this:

What is a shrone you may ask?? Check out Lori's blog to find out.

This is the letter I received with the prestigious button:

Hi Deneen,
I've created a special award that I am pleased to bestow on you as one of the first recipients! It is The Bona Fide Shrone Award. I've determined that you possess many of the salient characteristics of a Shrone. Please stick this nifty button somewhere on your blog to proudly display your Shrone status! Here are the reasons why you are a Shrone:

1. You have strange pets (guinea hens) and have named them.
2. You live in an old house that has character, and you've got a kick-ass magnolia tree!
3. You make me laugh, especially with your stories about Elena's antics and the things she says.
4. You are creative, crafty, wise, and possibly unknowable.
5. Something about you says when you get old and withered, you just might go out cruising for penis!
6. You know the evils of predisone.
7. You totally impressed me and blew me away as being the greatest secret pal! The Yoko Suzuki book and the martha poncho have put you into The Secret Pal Hall of Fame!
8. You're my bosom friend and kindred spirit and fellow Virgo.
9. You're one groovy chick and I think you are super cool!
10. Despite all you've been through, you haven't killed your inner child.

Yours in Shronedom!

Now, my husband wishes I would cruise for penis a bit more, at home, but you can't do it all. Perhaps when I am old and withered, I'll have more time for the cruising part.

Thanks Lori, it is now displayed proudly!

Congrats on shronedom, Deneen!

Is curtseying appropriate? I'm not quite sure how to properly acknowledge your wonderful new title, and don't wish to appear disrespectful ;-)

Your comment on the tacky leg lamp inspired me to also include an actual physical prize with the Bona Fide Shrone Award. I hope this week to go to my favorite store for Shrone gifts. Yes, there is a store where Shrones lurk that isn't a yarn shop! LOL!

If my mission is successful, soon you'll receive your awesom prize! (Ro will get something, too.)
