Catching up - Part II: The Nice Bit

So here is Part II of the catching up, see I’m getting there.

Apparently I am ubernice, see it says so here. I like to keep mentioning this because it’s not often you get called nice and it brings a smile to your face. I don’t know about you, but I hear that word and my eyebrow arches so high it disappears into my hairline. Anyway this latest little badge (to add to my thoughtfulness and schmoozyness) came to me via Maht at The Moon Topples. And if I’m ubernice (see I’ve mentioned it again) it’s going to be kind of hard to find someone who tops that, but here goes:

Debi Alper – as the only blogger that I have met in the flesh so far, I can totally vouch for her niceness. She gave me a big hug and smiled a lot and was really nice the whole time we wandered along the South Bank.

Scarlett at From the shores of introspect and retrospect – Now despite the fact that I am quite possibly the worst commenter in the history of blogging, this chick is the Queen of Bloggy Enthusiasm and Positivity. My question Scarlett is: How do you do it?

Jon M at Writing in a Vacuum – Again I always leave Jon’s page with a smile on my face. He is so nice that you almost wish you could give him a little hug (and his gorehounds). Oh and he’s collecting these awards, so I have to help, don’t I?

And then there’s Canterbury Soul – He’s fully deserving of this award, he’s just always so nice. Oh and the thing that wins him this award hands down is the fact that he’s a Liverpool supporter, that’s just got to make him a good guy.

Kimy is a fairly new reader of my blog and again I apologise for commenting so infrequently, but I do read you on the feeder thingamajig. Anyway, Kimy is always posting these little quotes that are sure to get your brain cells working in a good way, so I think she is also deserving of a ‘nice’ award.

I have to say that in comparison to the other two award things I’ve received this is probably the ‘nicest’ design as well. OK already, enough niceness.

Phoktober 8th

In terms of the comments yesterday it seems that most of you liked the pictures of Tibo (rolls eyes) or the water shot. Obviously I can’t force you lot to share my love of gargoyles, so here’s another shot of the fountain.


Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Thanks for the award! That's so... emmm... NICE!!!!!!!!

Ha ha ha...

and you win the super coolest phoctober picture of the day award, wow... that's a really cool one. Love it.

Enthusiasm and Positivity... well, I visit all my favorite blogs (see my blogroll) and every one usually puts me in a laughing, happy, delightful mood.... such cool blog friends I have here.

How could I pout after reading Jon's 5 good things and seeing what kinds of shenanigans Minx and Vanilla have gotten into, Maht's totally outside the box thinking and his great photos and your fascinating, funny and awesome adventures (nobody does it like you do, girl)... that always puts me in a great mood. There are lots of others, but in this circle, those are more than enough to make me grin, even on a flat tire day.

Thank you lady!

Scarlett & Viaggiatore

kimy said...

ahhhh you are too kind and I am most honored! I am most happy to learn that the quotes I run across and post on occasion stimulate some cells out there. I generally share your reaction to the word 'nice' - along with being dreadfully overused it does seem to be one of those words, similar to 'interesting' that one uses .... when one is trying to be well, nice.

in reference to my recent post complaining about our recent spat of horribly hot weather, I am most sorry! since it sounds as if you are in need of some heat and sweat, the nice thing to do would be to box up a few and send them along - if it was possible I would do so!!

but back to the award...thanks again that was just so nice of you! eek!!

Debi said...

Agh! How could you do this to me?

Nice indeed ... and there was I thinking how well I was getting on as a grumpy old woman. What do I have to do to prove I'm all bitter and twisted?

Lapa said...





He has, also, translated into Portuguese the Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith.

He has been awarded several prizes.

Don't forget the name of this great author, you'll be hearing of him soon.

Please, add this new literary blog to your favourites.

Thanks for visiting.

Verilion said...

See Scarlett, that's why you are so nice. And Kimy, sorry for complaining, but at least I know where my summer went now. And Debi, you know you can be bitter and twisted and nice. It is possible. Now this last comment, it seems I have been spammed, now that's not nice!

The Moon Topples said...




He has, also, translated into Phoctober an array of images.

He has been awarded several blog prizes, though some seem to have been awarded mistakenly.

Don't forget the name of this great blogger, you'll be hearing of him soon. (Technically, you just heard of him already.)

Please, add this lackluster blog to your favorites.

The Moon Topples said...

Whhops! I mean...

I much-deserved award for you, and I find those you have given it to are nice as well. Yay, nice.

Jon M said...

AAAAh, how nice of you! It's nice to be nice if you can be nice...(Cramps, 'I ain't nothin' but a gore hound' one of my fave tracks!)Thanks for the virtual hug too! :-)

Minx said...

Welcome to the Coven of Nicey Niceness, Miss V.

Shall I tell them about your wicked side now?

And you gave one to Debi???? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Sam said...

The pictures are lovely. This fountain is amazing!

I was in Paris Sunday for lunch, but it was rush in, rush out. I had to pick up my daughter at 5 at the pony club!

Debi said...

I think I'm going to be sick ...

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Well, I tried to leave you a comment last night but blogger and my ISP trashed one another - they are not nice. I think I sent my comment via nice email instead. Thank goodness something was working nicely so I could converse with my very nice blogging friend and tell her I really like those nice gargoyles and that nice Tibo and that very nice photo.

Debi said...

Now I KNOW I'm gonna be sick ...

Verilion said...

Now I was goingt o respond to some blogger but I seem to have forgotten his name.
Oh Maht, yeah all the people I have given the award to are really nice; except Debi, who is SUPER nice!
And Jon, phew, at least you're not complaining about being nice, but then you're so nice...
What wicked side are you talking about Minx? I have no wicked side, I am all white and fluffy inside... Hehehehehehehehe...
Uh oh someone get a sickbag for Debi!
You knwo where the fountain is don't you Sam? ;) And you'll have to make your lunches longer next time. Oh and BTW, we are on the same crit group I see.
And Vanilla have you seen the gargoyle book on Kimy's website... and do you think grated carrot in the keyboard is alright?
And OH! Hope Debi got that bag in time!

Shameless said...

Snap, for the giving of this award to you V .. I would've given you one too if I had one ... seeing as, for example, you went and saw that play here in Lyon in which my music featured ... even if there was no blogmoot in it for you ... and I WAS IN PARIS! That was nice. Plus you've been really nice lately over other stuff and well ... NICE isn't the best word, but it gets the message across.

Verilion said...

Aw Seamus!
