I’m a loser.

It’s an honor just to be nominated. As a young blog, Poison Scents couldn’t compete with the big boys. Congratulations to the winner and runner-up in my category!

Best Unusual Blog
That’s Baloney!
Runner-up, Strange State Paranormal Mysteries in Oklahoma

Go to Okie Dokie for a complete list of winners. Thanks guys, for letting me play! There’s always next year.

Odd Random Fragrance Encounter #1

ORFE #1 On my styrofoam drink cup at Sonic Drive-thru. Might have been perfume or cleaner or air freshener. Hard to tell.

How about you? Have you detected fragrance in an unexpected place? Leave your ORFE in the comments, or email it to me at sherri AT sherricornelius DOT com. I’ll put it in a future post.

Also, Oklahoma bloggers, don’t forget to vote in the Okie Blog Awards. Poison Scents has been nominated in the Best Unusual Blog category.

I’ve been nominated for an Okie Blogger Award!

Stopping by visiting all the 2008 Okie Blog Award Noms-Congrats on your nom!!!!

And I said, “Huh???” I thought there must have been a mistake, but nope. It’s true. Poison Scents has been nominated for an Okie Blog Award in the “Best Unusual Blog” category. Am I the only fragrance-free blogger in Oklahoma? I guess maybe I am. I always knew I was a weirdo.

So to whomever nominated me, I am honored. Surprised and honored. Thank you.

Here are the voting instructions, as per the Okie Blog website. I can’t vote for myself, but I’d be grateful if you could force all your Okie friends to vote for me. 😉

I haven’t been very posty on here lately, but I have a good reason. Fragrance-related, of course! I’ve been in Migraine City for the past couple of months, and can’t seem to get caught up. Plus, it seems like everything I think about posting has some sort of “poor me” factor, and I just can’t stomach that right now. However, I had a good doctor visit yesterday, so I do have something good to report in the days to come.

Thanks again for the nomination and the millions of votes I will get!
