it's award time at the ok corral

Danae over at Beauty in Distress created this fabulous SuperWoman Award. And then she gave it to me. I will refrain from all of the self-depricating comments that are circling my brain, and just be flattered in peace. See? Even when I don't do it? I do it anyway.


Thanks, Danae. I'm glad I have been able to be there for you. (xoxo) I will be passing this along later.

And next, but by no means lesserly appreciated... ChurchPunkMom lurves me so much she gave me a manward. Because I measure up.

There are some Rules for the Measures Up Award, and this is what they are:
1. Say one nice thing to a man in your life.
2. List at least six ways that you measure success in your life (or for your blog).
3. Assign this award to six other blogs and leave them a comment telling the blogger that you’ve assigned them this award.
4. Link back to the blog that you received this award from.

So here goes:
1. Saying one nice thing to a man in my life: I loves me some Mister. Because when I am crazy he tells me to (and I quote) Sit down on the fucking couchfor Pete's fucking sake!!! If that's not the mark of true love, I don't know what is.

2. How dost I measureth mine blogging success: Hmmm...Well,
a) I love comments;
b) I enjoy a good debate;
c) awards;
d) the paycheck I got in the mail last week was sweet, even if it was for $30;
e) growing traffic;
and most importantly
f) when I am having a crappy day, and I blog about it, you people say the loveliest things to me, and even though you're somewhere, out there beneath the pale moonlight, I know you're thinking of me and loving me tonight. And that is really, really supercool.

3. Six other bloggers that measure up: Okay, here's the thing. If I read and comment (well, except for lately, when my commenting is totally spotty and often inappropriate), you measure up in my book. So grab the badge and pass it along. And pat yourself on the measuring tape. Or back. Whichever suits you.

4. Linking up to ChurchPunkMom. And goodfather. Because he's good. And the Father. Well, not *my* father, but he's certainly father material. And he started this whole business in the first place. Props to him.

Thanks for the awards, ladies.


  1. OK - you don't have kids old enough to have watched Fievel Goes West. Which means you must be young enough to have watched Fievel Goes West. You're not like, one of those people who was born the year I graduated from college, are you? What...are you saying my music is classic rock? Are you one of THOSE people?
    Congrats on your awards! I want an award. Aren't there senior blogger awards??

  2. We would be in the saw-it-on-the-big-screen crowd for the first Fievel movie. You can't let that stuff get you down. By the time I was a freshman in college, my fav Aerosmith song that came out when I was 16 was only to be heard on classic rock stations.

    And on the apparent abrasiveness of my instructions to my Missus: generally she is so together and on top of things that she needs no input from me. It's only when she needs to go in Time Out that I have to hitch up my britches and force her to take a breather.

  3. Because you like comments so very much and because I like you so very much I am going to comment.

    There. I commented.

    Now I would like to give you another friendly reminder from you friendliest of friends, and most dedicated blog reading friend of them all...
    Please go and use the Loo, the Latrine, the Dunny, the WC, the Netty, the Head and/or the Lav... whichever you prefer. Just use it. If there happens to be a Mister or a small person sitting upon said Loo, Latrine, WC, Dunny, Lav, and/or Head please proceed to your nearest exit and pee in your evil neighbors bushes. The END. I do NOT wish to see you in the alternative, which some of us refer to as the ER.

  4. Dear The Mister. I get put in time out too. And we appreciate it. Really, we do. Although Mr. Hot usually says, "Get your ass up to bed and take a fucking nap."


    Pamela - XXOO You deserve the awards.

  5. $30 bucks - You are making it!! Very cool! Congrats on all!

  6. am immediately loving your site - thanks for the comment at my place that brought me here! also the reference to An American Tale; my cousin and I used to sing that for family reunion talent shows, with all kinds of passion. and $30 sounds big time to me - I just logged in and found out that I made $6.72 over the past 3 months. :) happy holidays.


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
