“It’s a Major Award!”

November 21, 2008

As the holiday season rolls around, it’s time to break out the holiday classic A Christmas Story.  Hands down my favorite Christmas film of all time.  One of the best parts of the movie is when the dad wins a prize for a crossword puzzle contest and when they deliver the big box he has no idea what it is, he just knows that it’s a “Major Award!”.  He says “Major Award!” over and over, and it’s just funny when all of the packing material is cleared, there in the crate is a lamp in the shape of a woman’s leg, complete with high heel and fishnet stocking.  Priceless!

Though much less electrical, I received a “Major Award!” last week too.  It was from the Triangle chapter of NACE which is a catering trade group.  Each member photographer had the opportunity to submit a collage depicting one wedding event.  I submitted Lauren and Will’s wedding from May and won the “Major Award!” for best photography.

They say life imitates art, so just like in the movie when the lamp breaks, I managed to break my “Major Award!” too.  I was able to glue it back together, but it will never be the same.

This is my “Major Award!” (saying that never gets old)

This is the collage that I submitted
