thanks sumo

So, what does it mean?

FORMS: schmoozed or schmoosed also shmoozed, schmooz·ing or schmoos·ing, shmooz·ing, schmooz·es or schmoos·es, shmooz·es

Slang to converse casually, especially in order to make a social connection. A perfect definition of blogging!

larry- larry writes at lydia cornell and suzie-q- and leaves thoughtful and insightful comments wherever he reads. i have only recently started reading these blogs- but i can say from what i have read- they are honest and right on! timely and taking news as it happens and blogging about it.

poetryman- i don't know where he finds the time to blog at all of the places he does- as well as handle the administrative stuff- a poetic justice, the origin playhouse, the peace tree, poets for peace, the peace train,- pm has alot of stuff going on- and handles it all with artistic grace.

peacechick mary- mary's blog knock knock- is a must read for me. she also blogs at the katrinacat blog- and her sense of humor and style get her points across tactfully and succinctly. one of my faves by her was the day that dick cheney died :) take a peek at the archives- it's worth it. :)

donnie mcdaniel- the king of the louisiana bayou :) he writes at the katrinacat blog, the democratic daily, and little purple fooshballs. his heartfelt posts mesh with his humor and straightforward style. make no mistake- katrina is very much felt in the gulf- and donnie won't let folks forget their brothers and sisters there.

divajood- diva writes at journeys with jood, the katrinacat blog, the sirens chronicles in between gadding about the world at large and talking with her grandbaby beanie :) divajood writes from the heart and she approaches the world with an open mind. her posts are insightful and thought out- and she is usually right on the money- although we don't always agree :)

so- there are my five. :)

Oh, thank you Betmo - I recently was Schmoozed by Let's Talk, so do I need to list another five? BTW, getting both a Schmooze and Thinking Blogger Award makes you a Shminker, like me. !

betmo said...

i am in good company :) you can use the same 5- or whatever makes you happy- i just want to highlight your writing :)

DivaJood said...

Did you go to Peacechick Mary's? She's got a great idea, and I posted my contribution here.

Peacechick Mary said...

Yeah, Betmo - get in on the contest. You are definitely a player in that game! Thanks for the hat tip.

Larry said...

Thank you for the kind words and the Schmoozer nod Betmo.

It's nice to join you as a Schmoozer.

Donnie McDaniel said...

WOW! The Katrinacrat writers get slammed again! Seems to be all the rage lately. Thanks Betmo. Sure in good company.

Oh my... I had no idea I'd been schmoozed... Thank you. I am not exactly sure what it means to be so, but I have a feeling from your blurb of me I should certainly be thankfil nd let you know that I appreciate your support and wish I could be around your neck of the woods more's journey that is.
Good to see you found my latest blog- The Origin Playhouse. AS you know my anti-war plays are in "The theatre on APJ and these plays at the playhouse are not "political" per se.

Again...I want to thank you so much for your kindness and spirit.
