My Oscar Nomination....Ain’t Life Grand Award

So the U has kindly included me in on this somewhat self-inclusive catagory where I get to list 5 reasons why life is grand and pass this on to 5 other bloggers.

yeah I can name 5 reasons why life is grand. I can even name 25 reasons why life is good. Lists are one of my specialities because I am too organized, but enough of that.

here are my 5, cream of the crop reasons why MY Life is GRAND (at the moment)

1. I am breathing. (if I dont wake up breathing tomorrow, well..whats the use of getting out of bed).

2. Because I have a voice and a mind that reasons all that is around me and presented to me.

3. Life is grand because there is good and kindness in everyone. It just takes longer to find it in some. You know, like me, rough around the edges.

4. Yesterday I went to my closet and found my party dress from a few years back and I CAN STILL FIT INTO IT! HA!! nicely too.

5. and my final reason is because attitudes are changing. (maybe in another 20 years I will be married to a purple striped alien and noone will thing the worse for it.)

OK, now to name my 5 bloggers.....humm...I have SUCH a following:

1. Pumby

2. Shakespeare's Housekeeper

3. The Runcible Frog

4. MilesPerHour

5. Now in South Africa

have at it people...oh I got PEOPLE now!!! son-of-a-gun.


  1. Rachel,

    I'm glad to see life is grand! BTW...what is it with you and purple striped aliens? Must they be purple? What if the stripes are wavy lines? Do you prefer thick or thin lines? You've raised a slew of questions cause I might just happen to know someone who knows someone who knows someone who might know a alien. I'll need to confirm color and striping though.


  2. I'll take that in a wavey thick line please and on occassion, just to mix things up, how about a soft powder blue!

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination. I must be grand or people feel bad for me since I received this a few days ago from another blogger. Anyway, to see my list you can scroll down a few days on my blogsite.

    And this is definitely not a slight on the honor that Calico has bestowed upon me. I am humbled.

  4. Hello AC!
    Thanks for this...I think.
    Sorry to take so long in replying- i will make haste and do the deed now.
