doin' the happy dance -- not the forbidden dance

I'm doing quite a happy dance today -- for many different reasons. Okay, for exactly 5 different reasons.
But because I, like Jimmy James, am a cipher, a cipher, wrapped in an enigma, smothered in secret sauce, I can't tell you what they all are. Actually, I was told not to tell yet (how's that for mysterious and weird?!).

Wait, I'm lying -- only 1 of my happy dance reasons is a real secret. But because I'm trying to be all mysterious, I won't tell you the other 3 either. However, you may guess them. The 5th I will tell you now. Confused yet? Good. Welcome to my brain -- every frickin' second.

Anyway... A reason I'm doing a happy dance today is because my awesome RL friend Su of Vively Online has given me a Sisterhood Award. Su and I have been "sisters" for ages -- way back to our engineering days programming and load-building. And because "you can take the girl out of comp-tech, but you can't take comp-tech out of the girl", here we are, in front of computers again as blogging sisters.

So, now it's my turn to share the love (alphabetically):

1. Ali - My day is not complete without reading Ali's latest post. She's like your best girl friend you go shopping with, baby-sit each other's kids, and who knows all your secrets, except she also interviews celebrities sometimes.
2. Harmzie - One of my bestests. Made my comments section explode every time I posted until I finally told her "Get your own blog!" And she did.
3. Jenny - The Bloggess makes me laugh so hard that I cry. Seriously. Freakin' copious tears.
4. Karen - Karen wears motherhood so stylishly and fashionably, instead of all frumpy and bag-lady-ish, like I look most of the time.
5. Kari - Kari makes me wish I was in my 20s again. Doing things to make my life better. Except in my 20s, I did a lot of dancing at '80s Nite in the Village.
6. Paul - He's clearly butter side up, but can he please, please, please be a sister? I like him. He's as baffled about Shia LeBoeuf as I am.
7. Shai - Even if she doesn't post anything new, Shai is always updating photos on her blog. She makes you say, "Yeah! I'm doing that too, man!", and even if your photos don't look as good, you still feel like Ansel Adams.
8. Shar - A truly fun blog. Shar needs to post more often. Seriously, girl. Do it.
9. Toni - Going to her blog feels like going to a girlfriend's house for tea. With all your friends. And Edward from Twilight.
10. Wyliekat - She does awesome things like make chocolate pavlova. I like hanging out with clever people.
