A Celebration

Happy CMBA Members

Casual readers of this portion of the blogosphere know that by clicking on the Classic Movie Blog Association icon to the right that they are in for a world of fun, interesting and informative reading on the only subject that really matters. These days the link will lead you to the nominees for this year's CiMBA Awards. Awards are an important part of any organization to promote and encourage excellence. 2011 will be a particularly memorable year for me as it is the year I became a member of the CMBA and, I am chuffed to say, a nominee in two categories. "Chuffed" hardly covers it. I'm busting my buttons and you can lay odds that the news will be in this year's Christmas newsletter!

In a couple of days I will attend to the harrowing part of this process - the voting. Nominee time was tough enough. My scratch pad is full of so many arrows, circles and x's that it looks like a treasure map. For now, my leisure time is filled with reading and appreciating a year of quality and creativity.

One question: Are there loot bags?

  5. I did make a suggestion on somebody's blog that perhaps we could get the CMBA President to pony up some cash prizes, but I haven't had the nerve to actually ask about it -- just using the passive-aggressive method. LOL!

    Congratulations, CW! I am a big fan of your blogm, as you know by now! Kudos!

  9. Becky, I guess we'll continue to be rewarded with things that really matter. Why is it they never have any cash value?

  10. Thanks, Page.

    A few months ago I called you "Giggles Galore" because that's what you share. A great blog.

  11. I love your writing, and your nominations are so well deserved. I understand the gift bags contain a handful of saltine crackers and a new pair of brown shoelaces. It's almost worth that nerveracking long walk down the red carpet.

  12. Caftan Woman, although I've congratulated you elsewhere, to paraphrase Orson Welles, a great blogger's CiMBA nominations are worth repeating! :-) Again, my friend, we of Team Bartilucci are thrilled about your well-deserved CiMBA nominations! Congratulations and the very best of luck, C.W.!

  13. Jacqueline, it's a good thing I've been putting off buying those needed shoelaces.

    Your compliment means more than I can say.
