Do Wah

Phylly, thank you so much for the Versatile blogger award. I guess those tangents weren’t too much then?

Before I get to the ins and outs of this award, I just want to say I really enjoy Phylly’s blog. She and I are on the same wave length if her interests are any clue. She has similar taste in music, movies, literature, humor, …actors. Her posts always strike a chord with me. One of my favorites is May 13th, “Show Your Pearly Whites!” Love this post for lots of reasons not the least of which is anyone who puts up a video of Allan Sherman is someone I would love to know better, and there are many other posts which make me think this about Phylly. That’s just the one that stands out in my mind. Wait. Then there was the post about Earth Day where she talked about being a great fan of Joni Mitchell. Me too! There was also the time she mentioned Ogden Nash, The Beatles, Far from the Madding Crowd and John Standring all in one post! I assumed she’s a fan of all of those, and it had me thinking me, me, me and also me are a fan.

So many times I’ve read her blog and had the thought, “I would have a great time with this person.” I’ve had these thoughts so much with some bloggers that I’ve wanted to acknowledge it with fanfare somehow. If you’re thinking this is a long thank you for my award, almost in the vein of an award for Phylly, then you’re right. It is in fact an award.

To Phylly goes the first ever “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” Blogger Award.

Phylly, may you be the first of many to wear it with a giggle if not with pride, and hopefully, this will keep us all from becoming too serious. As far as any rules for passing this on, it may be passed onto two bloggers who have you musing, “Yeah, I’d like to party with them.” But only two since oftentimes finding more can be a real hassle. Most important the recipients must not take themselves too seriously, which means they have to have some affection for Bill Murray. No Bill Murray love, no award. Fine Print: must like at least one thing — skit, movie, whatever –with Bill Murray. See his IMDb page for reference. The recipient must then share this Bill Murray love with us. Below is mine and what inspired this award:

I’ll get back to you on my Versatile Blogger award.

And just so this post won’t qualify as a tangent, I must have an RA segue, i.e., something that is not strictly about RA but not a tangent either. Sort of a variation of Six Degrees of Separation or the Kevin Bacon game.

So where was I? Oh, yeah, trying to think of something to say about RA. Since I’m tired, and I don’t really have anything to say about him this evening (yes, there are times when I really don’t have anything to say about him), how ’bout a picture?

and a song (the whole thing LOL!):

  1. Oh dear, I better write a post about Bill Murray soon, then! LOL!
    I like him, let me refrase that, he rocks in Scrooged and Groundhog Day.
    I haven´t seen all his work, and look forward to see more if it´s like that.
    Found Lost in Translation not funny, but it was well played.

    I´m not begging for an award. Please leave me alone!

  2. Phylly is great. You are very generous to award her the Do Wah Diddy Diddy, she most definitely deserves it.

  3. LOL! Do it!

    There is so much to mine from Bill Murray’s work. I’m already thinking of some other awards! ;-)

  4. RAFrenzy, thank you SO MUCH! I am so flattered that I am one of the recipients of your super idea for an award!! I would definitely like to party with you too!
    And certainly I am a fan of Bill Murray, from way back to his days on SNL. Groundhog Day is one of my most favourite movies, and I loved What About Bob, of course Ghostbusters, and so many more.
    Since you mentioned my blog called “Show Me Your Pearly Whites” did you notice that Bill Murray is in one of the clips? So I guess I automatically qualified!
    I also love the “Do Wah Ditty” song and have sung it for Karaoke!
    I actually don’t know if I have seen the movie “Stripes” all the way through or not. But I see another of my favourite actors in it. — John Candy!
    I am simply thrilled to accept your awesome new award!

  5. Glad you like it!! Hope you have fun with it.

    After I sent you the email, I went back to look up that post and it was just confirmation that I was on the right track. :D Something would have been wrong if you didn’t like Bill Murray after everything else you’ve said you like. LOL!

  6. Oh, and the award may be given to no more than two bloggers at one time. So if you want to give it to only one, that’s fine. In fact, I’ll bet if you wanted to give it to more than two, that would be fine! Just don’t tell anyone you broke the rules. ;-)

    By the way, I’m giving it to only you unless I get a wild hair sometime in the future. LOL!

  7. […] Our own Phylly3 — what can I say? I’ve already made it plain how much I think of Phylly with my Do Wah Diddy Diddy award. […]

  8. […] for the record, I was so right about giving Phylly the Do Wah Diddy Diddy Award. More on that […]

  9. […] male actors. Phylly also has the “distinction” ;-) of being the inspiration for the Do Wah Diddy Diddy Award, which I’ll have to award again sometime […]

  10. […] hasn’t been much to see. But hey, we have a fondness for Bill Murray (have I told you about my Bill Murray love?), and ‘Kingdom Moonrise’ looks good. Plus, I’ll see anything with Frances […]

  11. […] All of this has me with a hankering to rev up my version of a blog award — The Do Wah. […]
