Award Ceremony: The 6th Coveted Lollipop Award at HubPages.com
Ladies and Gentleman, to the 6th Coveted Lollipop Award Ceremony at HubPages.com, the most popular site on the Internet for writers and readers of all topics and genres!
A special welcome to our guests of honor -
The Creator of the Lollipop Award, Chrisinhawaii.hubpages.com.
During the very first official unofficial Lollipop Award Ceremony Chris bestowed this most coveted Lollipop award on our second guest of honor.....
As requested by the creator of this Lollipop award, it became Bill's responsibility to pass the award on.
Oh, Ladies and Gentlemen, the word responsibility might be interpreted as autocratic and dictatorial, but it is merely a token gesture of respect to the creator of this most coveted sucker, the Lollipop of all Lollipops, and also to all previous receivers of this yummy ala sweetness. It would be such a shame to disdain this crème de la crème award at the time of one's favorable public reputation....
(..... Water... wAtEr..... WATER! Oh boy, I am choking behind this podium for all to see! Dear me, my embarrassment knows no boundaries!)
Ladies and Gentleman, for saddling you up with such a nasty cough-attack. As you know, this kind of choking in one's own words is a Master of Ceremony's biggest fear....
Anyway, billybuc decided to pass HubPages' most coveted Lollipop Award on to our next guest of honor, Linda Crist aka Irc7815, ...
Please be seated, Linda!
Oh, excuse me for a second, Ladies and Gentleman, can you hear me? I think this microphone in my hand just gave up the ghost. But don't stress, we'll fix it in a second on the beat of.....
Miss Little Millie Small for delighting us with your most famous song, 'My Boy Lollipop'.
And now, Ladies and Gentleman, our fifth guest of honor, the most adorable
4th recipient of the Coveted Lollipop Award, marcoujor aka Maria Jordan, the author of the most enchanting book, Kylie's Blossoms - a book that was once a series published by her in HubPages where writers of all genres have the opportunity to support and encourage each other to achieve the highest goals in the world of writers -
My granddaughter, Dané, thrilled by Kylie's Blossoms
With all guests of honor now comfortable on the padded seats for V.I.P.'s, I would like to thank marcoujor again for making me the 5th recipient of the most Coveted Lollipop Award. Well, I am actually Number 6, but Number 5 had to abdicate due to circumstances beyond his control. (And, indeed, 5 is my lucky number!)
And now it is my responsibility - no, privilege - to give this most coveted lollipop to Recipient #6
(Oh boy, I am waving hot flushes off my cheeks.. Perhaps I should have told her that this ceremony is supposed to be highly sophisticated, meant for those with savoir-faire!)
Ladies and Gentleman, with Alexandra now behind the curtains, where she will definitely change into a normal girl going to bed with a splitting headache, let me assure you that I could give the Lollipop Award to any one of the writers I know in HubPages. All of them truly deserve this most coveted award that was given to me by marcoujor. And yet, it was not difficult for me to make up my mind.
But what exactly is The Lollipop Award?
In the words of fellow-hubber Chris In Hawaii, the opus of this highly acclaimed and prestigious award, it shall be passed to:
"... someone that is loved by many, respected by all, and brings everything to the table in everything that is written."
This unofficial HubPages Lollipop Award is a virtual lollipop. This is the only award of its kind on the planet, and the only way to receive it is to have it awarded to you by the current Lollipop Award holder.
The award is given to a Hubber who you feel is deserving of some special recognition, someone who embodies all that is great about HubPages, a hubber who gives and not only takes.
(Thanks again marcoujor! I feel so frightfully honored because you've regarded me in such a high esteem when you passed this award on to me. I actually feel like keeping it.... Fortunately I know another most admirable and respectable hubber who will, just like me and you and our precursors, treasure this award with the humble respect it deserves. Also a last thank you from me to Chris in Hawaii, for giving birth to this brilliant idea - the Most Coveted Lolipop Award."
Just a few quotes about Ideas -
- "Everything begins with an idea." - Earl Nightengale
- "Almost all really new ideas have a certain aspect of foolishness when they are just produced." - Alfred North Whitehead
- "It is the essence of genius to make use of the simplest ideas." - Charles Peguy
- "A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man's brow." - Ovid
- "A mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one." - Mary Kay Ash
- "The new idea either finds a champion or it dies. No ordinary involvement with a new idea provides the energy required to cope with the indifference and resistance that change provokes." - Tom Peters
The hubber of my choice is -
the most accomplished poet, writer and commenter. Reading her hubs is like touring an aesthetical wonderland where every poem is a clear image like jewels exposed in a box of crystal glass.
This lady is –
- Incredible wise
- Always collected
- Never narrow-minded
- Nice par excellence
- Absolutely awesome
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I've chosen the Queen of Poets at HubPages as the 6th recipient of Hubbages' unofficial Most Coveted Lollipop Award -
The One and Only,
- Mother (a poem inspired by Nellieanne H. Hay)
Like a piece of mineral – a precious stone – you sparkle in my world, Nellieanna. You are a rock, a shining beacon, a guide worthy of my trust....
- The Flute and the Flute-Player: Nellieanna Hay
Flute-players are romantic, sensitive, creative and able to improvise. Nellieanna is a typical flute player...
Thank you Nellieanna,
for being such a remarkable role model for all women, writers and poets. You are ageless and multi-faceted, indeed.
May your wisdom, knowledge and sophisticated nature, so clearly noticeable in all your hubs and comments, encourage and inspire thousands in the years to come.
I wish you only the best of peace, happiness and good health.
Enjoy your Lollipop, Nellieanna, and then pass it on to the hubber of your choice.
A Special song for Nellieanna
Thank you, Ladies and Gentleman
for coming all the way from your corners of Hubland to attend this prestige Coveted Lollipop Award Ceremony initiated by Chris from Hawaii. While you take the time to congratulate Nellieanna, enjoy one more song I also associate with Nellieanna.
