Vanilla has nominated me for a Schmooze award. It kind of makes me laugh because the description:
schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.”
does not describe me in any way shape or form. I'm the one in the kitchen at my own parties. Still this is a blog award so definitions change a wee bit:

As it goes, Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”

So in keeping with the great blog tradition of passing on all awards to 5 fellow bloggers, I hereby nominate:

Jefferson Davis
Jon M at Writing in a Vacuum cos he's collecting (or stealing) blog awards
Marie at Deep Thinker
David at Witnessing am I
and I don't care if she's already had one, she is the Ultimate Schmoozer Minx.


Marie said...

Oh, thank you!

Now I wonder who I can nominate?

Minx said...

Schmoozer, eh? I think I am flattered, yes, almost definitely...schmoozes off feeling very smug.

Jefferson Davis said...

Aww, thank you. You're a sweetheart. Now, who do I nominate? Hmmm Quite the conundrum, I say. :-)


Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Great picks! You are a wonderful schmoozey kind of girl, V, but you nailed it... Minx is the Ultimate.

YAY! Congrats lady!

Verilion, thank you for thinking of me. That was very kind of you.

I am still not convinced "schmoozing" is something that is to be rewarded, but since I am awful at doing it in real life, I will bow my head and inch my way backward, muttering my thanks.

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Oy! I already nominated that minxy person. Still for being the ultimate schmoozer, I guess more than one nomination is entirely appropriate! :-)
Now, from one schmoozer to another - I'm off to do more schmoozing...

Verilion said...

Well Marie, you could nominate... ME! Oh no I already have one!
Minx, oh yes, do be flattered.
And Jefferson, a sweetheart and a schmoozer in one day!
Thank you Scarlett.
And David, yeah it seems it's a lot easier to do it on the net then in real life.
And hello there fellow schmoozer Vanilla. I did see that you had got Minx too, but like she beats us all doesn't she! Now shoo, go schmooze.
