Is This Too Much?


Isn't that cool? Their website says

The Daily Reviewer selects only the world's top blogs (and RSS feeds). We sift through thousands of blogs daily to present you the world's best writers. The blogs that we include are authoritative on their respective niche topics and are widely read. To be included in The Daily Reviewer is a mark of excellence.

I might have to make the badge a bit smaller eventually. But just for today, I'm basking.

Which is good because if you were to ask me ten minutes ago how I was doing today, I'd a said, "Flum." Flum is a word Skittles invented. And the best way to describe it is to slide way down in your chair until you are slumped like a rag doll. Now tell me how you are. You're flum.

Blame our late-night weekend revelry. And the very Moscow-y weather today.

It's drizzly and grey. We are in that in-between-time when the central heating has not yet been turned on, meaning it can actually be chilly in the apartment especially when it is not sunny outside. We have a blanket on top of the feather duvet at the moment. But in a few more weeks, when the heat is blasting, we won't need it anymore. We'll be wearing tank tops and shorts indoors then. Odd, isn't it? But so very Moscow-y.

Since I subscribe to the notion that there are few things exercise won't improve, I dragged my sorry ass across the pool 50 times this morning. But it did nothing to energize me today.

Until I got home and found the Top Blogs email. That was cool.

Hurray for me.

Just stopping by from SITS to wish you a very happy Monday!

P.S. Cannot help but notice that though you have lived almost all over the world, you have NOT lived in Norway... Maybe one day?

Hell yes. So, since we're BFF's now, can I come visit you in Moscow? 'Cause I've always wanted to go.

I'll get my boots and fur hat ready.
