Who is the Most Awesome Person Today?

  My Version of ActiveRain's Daily "Member Spotlight" (Part V)

Who is the most awesome person today?

It's that time of the week again folks!

As promised, I've decided to make 2011 a year in which I introduce you, my dear readers, to a Rainer who you might not know, but probably should.

ActiveRain posts a "Member Spotlight" in their "Daily Drop" newsletter. This is my version...

For this week's post, that person is:

Alan May

You know him. You love him. You can't live without him.

He's ActiveRain's hunk-a hunk of blogging love... Alan May!

He's a hunk-a hunk of blogging love... Alan May!

Alan works, lives and plays in the Northern Chicago area and is one of ActiveRain's true superstars. He's a prolific blogger, has a terrific sense of humor, and it's clear from his writing that he's truly enjoying his time here in the Rain.

If you aren't already subscribed to Alan's blog you need to go and do that right now. We'll wait. (insert Jeopardy theme here as we wait for you to return.)

OK. Are you back? Can we continue now?!!! 

I've had the pleasure of speaking with Alan a number of times over these past few years, and except for our last conversation, in which he clearly wasn't listening to a word I was saying, they've all been laughter filled.

Alan is a devoted family man and often writes about his family and their experiences.

He's also my friend.

And, because he's my friend, he gets to wear the "Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater" this week!

Alan May, proud recipient of the Most Awesome Person of the Day award!

Here's to you Alan May, the "Most Awesome Person of the Week"!

Next week's spotlight will be on.... YOU!

Yes, you!

Craig - Although your blog posts are entertaining I really wish you would quit thinking of only yourself and start talking about others.  May I have my sweater back now please?  That was a gift to me from Mr. Rogers

Craig, Have to admit I like that black outfit a lot better for "Active Rain's hunk-a hunk of blogging love...Alan May", than the diamond studded one seen here.

Again, another great member spotlight!

Craig--I agree with all that Alan was a wonderful choice.  I am simply in awe of how that sweater is one size fits all.  Everyone looks marvelous in it.  It has to have magical qualities that you are keeping to yourself, but it is your sweater.  Do as you will!

Alan, I'm sorry for getting over here so late to comment you on the award. But I also have to let you know that it's a touch tainted. You see, as I won it last week, and I was so flattered to be the recipient, that I didn't give back the sweater. So you see, Alan, you didn't get the original, you got a knock off. So Sorry!

Ed - That was very nice of you to apologize to Alan, Ed. But I'm sorry to inform you that Alan IS wearing the original Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater. It was you who got the knock off! You see, it took me longer to restore it after Amy destroyed it. This is how she gave it back to me....

Craig, there is way too much fun going on here!  I just found these posts this AM and am bummed out that I had not know about them.  I will be watching for them.  Alan is an excellent choice...I love to read his blogs...and now....he has been pronounced King!  Not too bad in the sweater either!  BTW, I found this one from the one this morning with Kerri featured.   Good job!

Margie - Alan is a true superstar here in the Rain. We've spoken on the phone, emailed back and forth, and have been subscribed to each other's blogs for what seems like forever. We even were battling to see who has the most subscribers. But then after a shameless appeal to the members here, Alan took a commanding lead! He's just one heck of a guy.
