I've been Liebstered!

Shout when you wanna get off the ride
--Sour Cherry, The Kills

I was Liebstered this weekend.  And no, that’s not a position from the German version of the Kama Sutra or something that needs antibiotics to be cured.  It’s a bit of blog love passed to me by the fabulously sublime Suze over at Girl Wizard.  Suze has become my one-stop shop for finding the beauty in things mundane and re-examining this thing we call life.  Beware, she'll make you think.
So what does Liebster really mean?  It comes from German and there are multiple translations, ranging from favorite to dearest to sweetheart. . .and that gave me the biggest warm and fuzzy.  This award is meant to give the blogger with less than 200 followers a little spotlight.  It's like getting a virtual Valentine, without the groping.  Although technically, you still have to put out. . .as in blogging posts and such, of course.  
                   Digression:  I called my kids liebsters all 
                   night, until my four year old emphatically 
                   told me he was no lobster.  
Now I pass the Liebster to five other bloggers who have made my life a little more entertaining.  They’re welcome to give some crustacean love to another five bloggers if they desire:
Chandara Writes. Love her horror/thriller fixation.
Laila Knight.  Writing fantasy with a sense of humor.
LAGEOSE.  Dry and evil wit--and nothing is sacred.
Tara Tyler.  A writer and a poet.
Christine Murray.  A writer who has room in her heart for more than words.
