Look what I have!
James gave me an award! My word what a good day. Thank you my lord graf... I shall do my best to deserve it. I do want to inspire people – to travel, to think, to be grateful, to be kind, to feel good about themselves, to practice compassion, and to think.
AND I was over to Coming2Terms to visit last night and found this Acts of Kindness award from PJ. I am awash in joy and rapture. I especially love this award as I am a big fan of random acts of kindness. One of my favorite ways to practice Benevolent Selfishness.
I am so touched that these two fine people and outstanding bloggers would think of me when it came time to pass on these awards. I am amazed that so many of you have found me fit and deserving of your praise, and I do thank you. I try to make my blog both interesting and of value, and to live life the same way.
I intend to inspire you today by going to the spa and having a hair treatment (with ozone?), a pedicure, and a manicure in order to inspire my brain to work better. No really, trust me, it works.
In honor of my Acts of Kindness award I am going to take my now almost full glass of change I keep on my desk (to collect the small change from my wallet) and give the entire lot to the first beggar I encounter. I did this in Fez and the look on the face of the chap was priceless! It is too much fun.
I am working like crazy to finish my two final papers due on Friday. I’ll do just about anything to ward off Alzheimer’s. I am hip deep in researching terrorists groups. Joy and rapture. Really not a cheery subject hence the need for the spa. I'd much rather work on the novel, and since I am bored now complaining about the papers I shall finish today.
I MUST get my camera out tomorrow and get shots for you of the reconstruction on the walls of the Kasbah. They are doing a splendid job. It looks brilliant.
Q was in Fez, took her friend from New York City to visit Mohammad, and of course she bought more rugs and J. bought one as well. This is really good timing as I intend to visit him in September to purchase two more of his antique princess robes for my trip to Canada and that will help my bargaining position (see the Scot rubbing her hands together in anticipation of a great deal!). They are off to Casablanca today to do the tourist thing and then put J. on the aeroplane on Thursday. She was so kind as to bring Q the cat-transport bag for M.C. and Q's trip back to New York City later this month (sniff, sniff).
I'm off to the spa, laptop in hand.
