I Got An Award,Ya'll!

     Oh em geezy, George and Weezy!  I got my very first blogging award!  (I love how I say that like there are many, many more to come.  That's not conceited at all, right?)  Anyhoozle, the super awesome sauce Marian at Just Keep Swimming gave me the Versatile Blogger Award.  This lady is the first person to make me feel like anybody gave a flying flippedy floo that I had a blog.  She's just the sweetest lady ever!  Thanks, Marian!

This.  This is what I got.  Fancy, huh?

     The rules for accepting this award are as follows:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Include a link to their blog.
3. Include the award image in your blog post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
7. Let the bloggers know they have been nominated.

     Sooooooooo, 1 through 3 accomplished, now onto number 4.  Here are four random facts about little old me:
1.  I have a tattoo on my upper left thigh that says friendship in Arabic.  My bestie, Slapajawea has a matching one.  We got them in Iraq, and they look like garbage.  But we love them anyway.
2.  I don't do hugs, unless they come from my family or my very, very, very close friends.  So don't be offended if I elbow you in the face if you attempt to hug me.
3.  My mother had to institute a "No Reading At The Table Rule" just for me when I was a kid.
4.  I used to to have a haunted baby doll that my mom found in an attic when I was a kid.  Her name was Chuckette, and she said very strange things when you pulled her string.  She died of decapitation at the hands of my brother and his friend.  Her crime?  Being too creepy to live.
5.  My absolute favorite movie is "Mean Girls."  I refuse to apologize.
6.  I hate egg yolks; my brother hates egg whites; we always share Easter eggs.
7.  I'm usually a very good blog follower, but I've had a bunch a craziness going on.  I'm not ignoring you, my dearies, I promise.

     And here is my list of bloggers to pass the award on to.  They are all just the coolest:
1.  Kate at Some Of This May Be True.  Too, too funny!
2.  Wub Boo Mummy for having the balls to Ermagahdify herself.
3.  Murr at Murrmurrs.  She writes about leaking weasels, and such.
4.  Karen at Ow, My Angst.  Her posts have titles like "Don't Lick Poop."  Sage advice.
5.  Cari at The Incredible Bitch Blog.  The title says enough.
6.  Blanche at All Over The Spectrum.  This lady tirelessly looks for things fun, educational activities for all our youngins.
7.  Mac at Homestyle Mama (with a side of autism.)  She is so nice and funny and supportive!
8.  Lizbeth Four Sea Stars.  She makes the funny a lot.
9.  Kimberly at All Work And No Play Make Mommy Go Something Something.  She's hilarious and brutally honest.  Killer combination.
10.  Mom2LittleMiss at Beyond The Dryer Vent.  Funny and educational = good sauce!
11.  Carrie at Cannibalistic Nerd.  Pretty much the definition of versatile blogging.
12.  Robyn at Hollow Tree Ventures, because da-doy, that's why!
13.  Lexi at Mostly True Stuff.  She makes my heart happy.
14.  The lovely lady over at Naptime Writing.  She's funny, and she's not afraid to say what everyone else is thinking!
15.  Jillsmo at Yeah. Good Times.  Hilarious and mean as hell (when need be.)  Love!

     Anyway, we just got back from a little min-vacation to the Georgia Aquarium, and I'm so tired that I feel like I could vomit.  Do you guys ever feel like that when you get just stupid tired?  Or have I reached the point of being so tired that I'm delusional?  Hmmmm...flubber milkshakes barney socks.  That is all.


  1. Love you, mean it!!! And here I've not been posting because I've had nothing...this is perfect timing. And I heart you.

  2. Just because of all the nice things you said, I promise I will never try to hug you.

  3. You totally deserve an award! Awesomesauce = sanstrousers, IMHO.... Now if I could just get the spam filter on my blg to figure that out!

    P.S. my girlfriend just threw out her daughter's Dora doll ( it had the most horrific sharpie makeup!) Totally coulda been the bride/ groom? For your chuckette doll!

    1. Ack, then Chuckette could have spawned, and the horror would have continued! And, apparently the interwebs hates me and my comments.

  4. Thankee Thankee, and a huge congrats to you! You certainly deserve all the lovely awards there are, and if I weren't too lazy and socially inept I would pass awards on, in which case you'd have a whole trophy case full. :). That might not makes sense, but that's because I'm totally with you on the tired enough to vomit thing. And yes, that is all too real.
    PS I'm also glad to know I'm not the only one with a stupid spam filter that doesn't know how awesome (and not spamish) you are. What up with that???

    1. I don't know why that keeps happening. It's been that way with a bunch of people. I'm not made of spam, damn it!

  5. You totally deserve it. You are brilliant and hilarious. And thoughtful...very thoughtful for thinking of me.

  6. Congrats to you!!!! You deserve it!!

    YOU. ROCK.

    Thank you I am honored!! I have no clue how this works.. but I LOVE IT and again Thank you!

    Love your Blog!!!

    1. Haha, I'll pass it on to my brother that he rocks! Thanks so much!

  7. I don't do hugs, either, so I'll say "thank you" and give you a hearty handshake.

  8. Thank you so much, you lovely kindred spirit you! I too am fairly resistant to hugs! Hooray! Also, I wish you had elaborated more on the creepy doll, as I would love to know some of the things she said! So funny.
    Also, in about a couple of weeks could you kick me in the ass if I've forgotten this? I'm going on vacay tomorrow and I'm already having a anti-stress beer.

    1. Ugh, we just got back on Wednesday, so I feel you on that! About the doll, I shit you not, she would say things like, "I can see in the dark. Can you?" "Wouldn't it be fun if you were a doll like me?" (Creepy because of an old Twilight Zone.) "My eyes can go round and round like this." (Accompanied by creaky sounds as her dead plastic eyes spun around in their sockets.)

  9. Congratulations!

    That's interesting about eggs. Does your egg yolk hate extend to Cadbury Eggs? I'll take them if you're looking for someone to give them to.

  10. Congratulations! I have only been reading your blog a couple of weeks now, but you are hysterical. A much needed escape into a land of crazy. Mean Girls is also one of my favorite movies. It's too much fun and who doesn't love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler?

    1. It totally changed the way I say, "Awesome." And thanks! You're a peach!

  11. ::GASP::
    I DIE!
    *clutching chubby hand to bosom* I am HONORED.

    And you know what? When I type "the" in my search engine bar thingy, YOUR BLOG POPS UP FIRST. Even before The Bloggess. Are you not amazed?

    I would like to thank The Academy, my mother (on her 80th birthday today) and my basset, Teddy. All have unfounded faith in me.

  12. well deserved award! Congratulations Mom
