Why! It’s a Major Award!

I’m always so incredibly honored when someone nominates me for a blogger award.  It’s so humbling to know that people take time to read what I’ve written when half the time even I don’t want to read it.  The support and friendship I’ve found since I began this blog a year ago has just been so amazing and I thank all of you!

Two days ago, CamsGranny nominated me for the Super Sweet Blogging Award.  This means so much to me.  A lot of people would use a lot of words to describe me.  I’m not sure sweet would be one of them!  So THANK YOU to her for seeing past my gruff exterior.  🙂

Now I’ve got some questions to answer…

1. Cookies or cake?   What the hell?!  I have to choose?!  Well hell.  If my back is up against the wall, I’m going to go with cake.  Especially birthday cake.  The kind with the big fluffy icing that is spread on about 2 inches thick.  Yea.  That’s the ticket!

2. Chocolate or vanilla.  ALWAYS chocolate.

3. What is your favorite sweet treat:  cheesecake or frozen yogurt ?   Definitely cheesecake.  Yogurt is like a little tub of slimey crap.

4.When do you crave sweet things the most?   Can you say P – M – S?!

5. If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?   I just laughed.  I truly have no idea.  Nicknames I’ve had over the years – Busty, Sleazy, Lis, Metal Goddess, Queen of Metal, Mistress of Metal…none of those provoke sweet images, do they?  I’m screwed.  OH!  Last minute update!  I posed this question on FB and had a friend respond with “Hello Kitty.”  So there.  That’s pretty nice, eh?  OH!  Another update from FB…Mistress Lisa.  That’s more of a whip & chains kind of image isn’t it?  Now I’m a little worried.  One more FB update:  Lustrous Lisa…SO much better!

Anyway!!

Now I am to nominate a “Baker’s Dozen.”  My choices are:

1.  All About Lemon

2.  Cam’s Granny (I can nominate who nominated me right?  B/c she is sweet!)

3.  Mystery Coach

4.  J. Aurora Morealist

5.  Running Naked with Scissors

6.  How to Date Boys

7.  A Life Continued

8.  Thin Spiral Notebook

9.  The Risible Rambler

10.  Guapola

11.  Janna T. Writes

12.  Freedom to a Full Life

13.  Thoughts, Ramblings, and Daydreams

Now, it’s up to all of you if you wish to play along and nominate your own sweet bloggers.  I’m not going to put the pressure on you or anything like that but if you choose to do so, the rules are:  (1) acknowledge the person who nominated you, (2)  answer the SWEET questions, (3)  nominate a Baker’s Dozen.  That’s it!

Happy Monday!

Little Orgasmic Bites of Chocolatey Goodness…

Last night I discovered the new less-fat Hershey’s chocolate. I got the little bag w/ three pieces in case I hated it. I truly regret not buying in bulk now. This is my breakfast. Guilty I feel not.

Seems I am feeling a bit Yoda-ish though. I’m like all Star Warsy w/ chocolate. Such a bad ass.

And the Nominees Are…

Yesterday, MrMary nominated me for several awards so to him, I say…

I’m not sure how worthy I am.  I try to read daily but sometimes fail.  I try to write daily and often fail at that, too.  When I started my blog last December my goal was to simply have a place to vent, brain dump and in general just have a place to unload my thoughts – whatever they  may be.  I never imagined I’d discover such an amazing community of bloggers or that I’d make such incredible friends.

You’re all so supportive and I appreciate the constant encouragement more than you know.  No matter what I’ve written and I’ve thrown it all out here as honestly as I can, nobody has ever criticized me or made me feel bad.  My words aren’t coming out the way I want them to (frustrating) but just KNOW…I appreciate you guys so very much.

Now, when MrMary nominated me, his rule was:

There really are no rules, other than you pick an award and send out to bloggers you like and respect. 

I’ve chosen the Beautiful Blogger Award and would like to nominate the following bloggers for their intelligence, wit, honesty, courage, sense of humor, and friendship.

I feel very blessed to be a part of this WordPress community.

You all are BEAUTIFUL people!  Never forget that!

I KETCHUP With Them…

Another fun WordPress activity!  I love this stuff.  I found out through Edward Hotspur who has again encouraged me (he’s a cool dude indeed).

Here’s how it works:

From Old Dog New Tits and Mel According to Mags

On the 1st and 15th of each month, Mel and I will post the same picture or video with a writing prompt on our blogs. We ask you to respond in 57 words or less. It can be a story, a poem, a song you wrote in the shower, a cat food jingle or whatever strikes your fancy. All we seek is creativity. Each week, we’ll post a Featured Blogger who poured it all out for us in the previous link-up.

Here’s how you play:

  1. Follow Mel and Michele on Twitter.
  2. Follow Mel and Michele on Facebook.
  3. Post fancy schmancy ‘Ketchup With Us’ button (below) in the body of your post.
  4. Use the hashtag #KetchupWithUs on Twitter to help spread the ketchup-y goodness.

‘KETCHUP WITH US’ – Prompt#1

Tell us in 57 words or less the best advice you ever received from someone

older than you that you admire.

I decided to write a poem.  It’s not a good poem but shit rhymes so that counts, right?  My Daddy’s words of wisdom are bold.  I have to say these words have never failed me  – ever.   He’s shared a lot more of his brilliance over the years but I’ve got a word limit here.

When you’re unsure and confusion says hello, always always…

Stick with what you know.

You don’t know what to think, your opinion you’re preserving?  Remember…

You learn a lot by just observing.

You’ve put it off all day, what will it take? C’mon man…

Let’s kill that snake!

Hope I did everything correctly.  Like, I’ve linked up properly and all.  I never use Twitter but I do believe I’m following everyone now.  If I screwed the Twitter thing up, forgive me.  I’m a Twidiot.

Happy Saturday!

P.S.  I’m craving grits.  This has absolutely nothing at all to do with anything my Daddy has ever said to me.  I just thought I’d share.
