Ah shucks.

Fabulous award

"Me? Fabulous?  But, I'm just me.  Just Claudia.? Just plain Claudia."

That's what I thought when Heart in San Francisco awarded me the "I'm fabulous award".

After promising to not to transform the award into anything (like I did when I created the blame awards), I sat with the idea.


At a complete loss, I looked up the word in Merriam-Webster.

Fabulous: 1)  resembling or suggesting a fable : of an incredible, astonishing, or exaggerated nature <fabulous wealth> b: wonderful,  marvelous <had a fabulous time> 2: told in or based on fable.

Hmm... Well, I am a bit like the jolly green giant...  I'm not so green...? I did test out as the Hulk, but that's probably not what she had in mind.

While I puzzle through this fabulous thing, I'd like to pass along the award to Squirrelly or his formal name: Realm of the Lone Grey Squirrel.

(I call him squirrelly because I have this fantasy that there is only one squirrel in the world.? It's a long story.)

As a United State-ian through and through, I knew absolutely nothing about Kuala Lumpur or Mayalsia prior to meeting Squirrelly.? Over the last year, I've enjoyed learning through his eyes.

He is fabulously kind and a fabulous story teller.

And belonging to the class of the mysterious squirrel, he is fabulous.
