RE: The Scholastic Scribe Award

The "Original" Superior Scribbler!YOU LIKE ME YOU REALLY REALLY LIKE ME!!!" 
(Or, something like that.)

So, today Blogger_babe32 informed me that A Jab at Work – Your One Stop Job Shop had been selected as one of five blogs to receive the, "Superior Scribbler Award". While I was excited at first, I later thought, "Nooooo!!!! Does this mean that I can't quit blogging?  'cause I had one foot out of the door." 

Now, however, I'm wondering if this award is kismet : in this case, a sign that I should dwell a little longer in blogatory. So, as per the rules of decorum/acceptance of the award I am hereby awarding the Scholastic Scribe to five (of the many) blogs that I follow, and admire.

So, here goes:

& the awards go to… … …

  1. WAITING FOR TO GO No explanation here, JUST TRUST ME;
  2. REAL LIFE IN A MINUTE An all together cool site, with fun, pithy commentary;
  3. reCareered As might be expected, I have to recommend some job related sites;
  4. The Baltimore Blog Spot – B’More Jobs (More work for the weary.); and, last but certainly not least...
  5. Meet Verizon HR (Ok, so this is really a corporate blog, but what can I say; I applaud the effort to get the word out about employment opps there. After all, this world economic crisis isn’t going to go away on its own!!!)

If you like, pass the torch, and grant the award to your favorite blogs by following the guidelines suggested at Bb32's blog: Of Life and Layoffs, or at the blog of origination for the Superior Scribbler Award: Scholastic Scribe.

"Of course, as with every Bloggy Award, there are A Few Rules. They are, forthwith:
  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
Now that we've Dispatched with the Formalities, cue the drumroll, please. The First 5 Recipients of The Scholastic Scribe's Superior Scribbler Award are:" ... 
On an all together different note:

More work-related blogginess shall resume asaIgetmybuttingear : )

Well thank you! How flattering! And , yes, it means you can't quit blogging. YOu have your fans to think of. Stick with it~

Blogger_babe32 said...

You do so much good research, you can't quit!

AJAB said...

"Just Playin", no problem, you deserve kudos for all that share on Blogger, and B_b32... Thank you so much for the encouragement!!!

You should see my face right now.

A couple of fruitless weeks on the net and in the, "Real World" and I was starting to run out of gas.

Well, I'm beginning to feel re-charged, and I may just go the complete opposite direction, and start another blog instead of stopping these two.

Anywho, thanks for cheering me up!

Just Playin' said...

Here's a shout out! Go see my blog. Trying is admirable.

Sarah said...

congrats on the award. tough topic but keep it up.

AJAB said...

Thanks again J.P. You've made my day! Sarah, thanks. Helping people find work would be very rewarding for me; the only glitch thus far, has been not having anyone to help.

But I'm just going to keep, "plugging away" as me old mum used to say. (I'm not British, I just wanted to say it that way :)

Steve E said...

Well, I trusted you and visited "Waiting For To Go". I'll trust you always hereafter for blogs to visit and enjoy.

And YOU are a helluva writer! And so interesting how you carved out a blog topic in which EVERYONE is now reading...or should!

AJAB said...

Nice! Thanks for checking out her site. And, thank you so much for your kind words about my writing/site!!!

A Jab At Work Poetry (Poetry about Work)

“Work” by AJA-B, 08/30/09

The life I live is full of Joy,
But fool of sadness have I been,
If rumblings uttered prove us coy,
Then, truth be told both where, and when,
Was once a pair that teetered then,
O’er brinks or hills,
That they could scarce,
Find liquid, bars of salt, but bills,
And toil, though notice paid none dare’st,
To sweat, and pack, and tape, and wrap,
To call, and quest, rebuffed for cost,
To drive five states, and back, for gas
Traverse, from here to there to drink,
While aching back, and sweat-soaked shirt,
Proved naught the laborers’ worth, but stink,
And why should hecklers, wreckers blurt,
And hurl insults until they hurt,
While hypocrites sit conditioned in,
Till out a pair sent all they’d earned,
To others seeking extra, win,
‘gainst those that taught themselves, and learned,
Volumes, nearly choked and burned,
As plumes of hate, and stacks of smoke,
Sparked flames, which brinksmanship, did stoke,
Hellacious fires that GOD awoke,
& Smote the devils’ flames whose’ fire,
Could not the heights of clouds aspire,
& Up the pair in now a shell,
found seeds to plant that vines did swell,
Fat, filling, fruit and tasty cheer,
Revealing teeth, “from ear to ear,”
Now brimming, happily forgiving, hope,
Refilling cranial stores to find,
Surviving, counts for little more than sustaining life, and wasting time.

Digressing now though more is there,
I advise you work, but ne’er care,
Hard work, and success are not the same,
But without the first you’ll reap the blame,
For being weak, and seeming lame,
To end I wish you all the best,
Catharsis exhausts, I needs must rest,
Good luck, “You’re hired” I hope you’ll find,
To ease your cares, and soothe your mind.
