Well, dah-lings, just take a gander at this ... my mah-vah-lous friend Alipet from over at That's a Novel Idea thinks yours truly - yes, moi! - is over the top.
You don't say!
More precisely, it is my humble little blog (oh, this old thing?) that she thinks is Over the Top! and has even bestowed an award on such. Ali says about my blog and my writing: "I absolutely love to read every single things she writes and she is not afraid to let her opinion be known even if you might not like it -I LOVE THAT."
I jest somewhat dramatically and exaggeratedly in this intro (if you couldn't tell), but really, I am very honored and flattered. Deep down I am smiling and saying, "Aw, gee ... me?"
With every award comes an acceptance speech (and a cute button, and isn't that one darling? I love the apron with the come-hither expectant kiss ,.. or, more apropos in my case, drop-dead utter exhaustion while channeling some chef to instantly materialize and cook dinner.)
Onto the formalities, and the envelope please:
Here are the rules for the Over The Top Award: USE ONLY ONE WORD! It’s not as easy as you might think. Copy and change the answers to suit yourself and pass it on. It’s really hard to use only one-word answers so try your best.
(Gosh, no pressure here, since the award was given because Ali loves everything I write. I'm borrowing a few of her answers. :)

Thanks so much, Ali! I think you're Over the Top too!
I want to pass this along to all those who have left a comment here recently, because if you leave a comment, you are definitely Over the Top! in my book. (Or blog. See, this is why I have to take the easy way out tonight and not list individual people/blogs because I am getting a bit punchy. I'll blame the large piece of blackberry pie I just ate.)
