Thank you everyone for your sentiments. I'm not sure why I got this - I'm just a regular member of the site, just like any other regular member - but thank you for the kind comments.

I felt the same way when I received the award. I felt a little awkward about the whole thing...that is, until I heard about the annual MOTM pot-luck BBQ with drinking and revelry.

I feel it's because you both are loyal members to the site, you contribute positively to onlinebookclub, and absolutely deserve the recognition!

@bookowlie, I just saw your new title! Special Discussion Leader? Congratulations! That's pretty awesome :tiphat:

Thanks, but the real applause goes to Pasharu. I am always inspired by his review skills and dry wit. I think I am funny, but I am a mere shadow in his presense.

Thanks for the kind words. I don't know how much I deserve the new label. It's been difficult finding writers who want to submit a guest post in the forum I host. :( Hopefully, it will catch on eventually.

You got it because you are a regular and loyal member, and you do deserve the recognition! :)

You shouldn't miss annual MOTM part.... I heard it will be awesome, and I plan to sneak in... :angelic-cyan:

YOU ARE NOT JUST A REGULAR MEMBER, YOU ARE AN IRREGULAR MEMBER !!i! You are the cat's meow, the icing on the cake, the Spirit Of St. Louis (or wherever you are from), the maraschino cherry on top of the ice cream sundae ... in short ... you are the JANUARY MEMBER OF THE MONTH HOOORAAAAAAY !!!

Now Pasha, it is customary that the MOTM wear something symbolic of the month over which they reign. Bighuey had to wear a bear skin for December, and I had to wear a turkey head for November. I suggest that you wear a diaper befitting your New Year month (January) status ... this may also prove beneficial in light of your irregularity condition.

Who needs normal?! :mrgreen:
If we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

We've all got light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.
