They Come in Three's

Okay, I promise this is the absolute last one I'm going to take (at least for awhile now). I received the Soulmate Award from Christi over at A Torch in the Tempest.
It's an interesting award and given to people who "get you". So I have to give it to people who "get me."

Rules are simple:
Five Recipients.
Make up something (not too mean) about the people you give the award to.
Link to the people you give it to.
Link back to the original award post here.

Sarah Jayne Smythe at Writing in the Wilderness who really is a very famous British actress trying to stay out of London for fear of bringing up that old scandal.

Nicole Ducleroir at One Significant Moment in Time who has tattoos all over her back she got on her travels around the world.

Lola Sharpe at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword who once headlined the show-stopping song in the Barry Manilow extravaganza in Vegas.

Erin Kunhs at Musings of a Writer Chick Living in Paradise isn't really picking up her grandmother's car in Ohio this week, she's really taking Santa's reindeer over to Yellowknife for their annual summer vacation.

Sarah Ahiers at Falen Formulates Fiction who is the newest owner of the Vlad Dracule Castle in Romania.

The fun in this is to see who really gets you, me, each other, everyone else. I hope you all play. And whoever finds out who I really am and tells me wins. (I can't give you anything for the win except kudos and congrats.)

I also want to say Thank You and Welcome to a whole bunch of new gals who became my friend over the last week. Tamara, Suzette, Christine D., Mia, B.Miller, Tess and Jennifer. I've got a buffet set up in the dining room with coffee and danish, chocolate, (but you'll have to fight Steena for it) and other little munchie things. Have some caffeine, a gnosh, grab a chair, browse around, make a comment. We're all friends here.

And the biggest news of all-- Sarah at Falen Formulates Fiction is having a contest for having 100 followers but it's not just any contest, it's a WRITING contest. How much fun is that? And the prizes are fantabulous awesome so go now and grab your prompt -- oh yes, a prompt -- and write your little fingers off.

Okay I think I'm done now. Have a great day/week and I promise no more award posts.

I'm glad you saw it. Wait til you see me. You think you are you. I am so me.

Christi Goddard said...

Those are funny, Anne. Could you also mention the making up something about the five as part of the rules? :-)

And ooooh, a writing contest!

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

Nicole said...

ROFL!!! Too FUNNY! I love this award -- I think my favorite so far! I'm tweaking my new blog design (it's a curse to s-l-o-w-l-y figure out how to crack the HTML codes...!) and then I'll be passing this on. Thanks so much for giving it to me -- I really love that you did!

Piedmont Writer said...

Nicole -- I had a lot of fun doing it. I hope you don't mind I spilled your "secret".

Falen said...

YES!!! A Castle! I Love it!

Also for a second i thought these were real and i was really really impressed that Nicole had tattoos all over her back

Shelley Sly said...

Congrats on the award! This is such a fun one to read, too. Your descriptions were funny. :)

Piedmont Writer said...

Sarah A -- I figured you'd love the castle. I guess I "get you".

Shelley -- Thanks, it was a lot of fun to do.

B. Miller said...

Very cool! Congrats on your award. Great post!

Piedmont Writer said...

B. Miller -- Thank you. Thank you. And Thank you.

Elana Johnson said...

Congrats on the awards. You're just so darn popular! :)

Piedmont Writer said...

Elana -- Thanks. Who knew??? It's a little embarrassing though.

Michele Emrath said...

What a fantastic award! And it's great to think there are so many bloggers who "get" you. Fun statements, too.


Piedmont Writer said...

Michele -- Thanks. Yeah, I've got some really great friends on the blososphere.

DL Hammons said...

Did I hear something about a party at a castle????? :)

Lola Sharp said...

I made a comment hours ago, and it went through...but now it's not here? Wazzup with that? I swearz I am the glitchiest blogger in the blogosphere.

Anywho... I LOVE my story! VEGAS BAYBEE! What happens there stays there, except I still seem to have a yellow feather stuck in my hair.

I'm honored.
And, when's the pool party?

CONGRATS on your award!


Susan Fields said...

Congrats on your award! And I love the stories you made up - fun!

Piedmont Writer said...

DL -- You've got an award from me on another blog in the last two days, can't remember which one I've given you. And yeah, there's a party at my pool, but Sarah from Falen owns the castle now.

Lola -- I remembered that was how you introduced yourself... "I am NOT that LOLA." so I thought it would be fun. Pool party's coming up soon.

Susan -- Thanks. They were fun. Get ready I'm sure it's coming around to you soon.
