Rob over at Weight2lose2013 came up with the best idea since sweat pants. We were discussing one of our favourite movies The Big Lebowski, and Rob, being the genius that he is, came up with the idea of a Lebowski blogging award.
For those of you may not be familiar with the movie, I’m just going to paste the synopsis that Rob gave:
When “The Dude” Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, two thugs urinate on his rug to coerce him into paying a debt he knows nothing about. While attempting to gain recompense for the ruined rug from his wealthy counterpart, he accepts a one-time job with high pay-off. He enlists the help of his bowling buddy, Walter, a gun-toting Jewish-convert with anger issues. Deception leads to more trouble, and it soon seems that everyone from porn empire tycoons to nihilists want something from The Dude.
If you haven’t seen this film, you need to go and watch it RIGHT NOW. I don’t care if you’re at work, go…GO!
Basically, the Dude is perturbed because his rug is stolen. He repeats that his rug “tied the room together.”
The whole point of this award is to choose a blog in a different niche to your own. I’m just going to be super lazy and paste here what Rob wrote:
...much like the rug tied the Dude’s apartment together, there are certain blogs that tie groups of bloggers together. That’s how we get social blogs, diet blogs, music blogs, poetry blogs, etc., all following one another. So, much like the Liebster award, this is the Lebowski award. We can make rules up as we go along, as long as they pertain to the plot of the movie. So, do your homework and watch it, you’ll be happy that you did. So, the first rule is that it has to be a blog that ties together with other blogs without the same premise. Diet blogs can’t Lebowski a diet blog, but they can Lebowski a travel blog. Also, you can’t nominate the person who nominated you…
Unfortunately, that means I can’t nominate you Rob 😦 But here’s a virtual hug and pat on the back.
Hopefully this award will take off, because it is AWESOME. Once you receive the award, choose another blog in a different niche to your own.
I’m going to choose Julie, who runs a fantastically motivational and fun blog over at Musings From A Workaholic.
You’ve been Lebowski’d brah!
Sorry that your award is not as cool as the one Rob made for me Julie, he’s clearly much better at this computer malarkey than I am.
And thank you Rob, this is the best award I have ever received 😀
