...and the award goes to...


OK OK, so, I never really got the whole blog awarding thing. instead, I usually found it to be an annoyance, taking up valuable space on our blog pages...not so much an award, as it is a chain mail...or pyramid scheme...or an invasion of privacy. KIDDING, KIDDING! (no hate mails please)

Recently, "Toddler Knows Best" awarded us the "Sunshine Award", to the left here, (I did nada to deserve this). I thought..."Oh Crap" of my bestest friends in the whole world had done the same...and I forgot.

I forgot to copy her list, paste it here, and come up with my own answers...and then, after reading it, yet again, I realized...HOLY Crap...I am supposed to come up with 10 RANDOM things about MYSELF? WT...? Like I have any clue about randomness, parenting a toddler...hell, I don't have time to count ten toes, let alone realize ten random things about myself...but, ok, ok, I can try...

So, without further ado, I give you the award, "The Honest Scrap Award!" (Honestly, when I first saw it, I thought it said HONEST CRAP!) Honestly!!

Thanks MRS. LEMON, your a pal!

1. I am pretty emotional. I like to see the good in people. I cry at commercials…and yes, even I consider myself a wuss. A nice wuss.

2. I don’t care to stand in line to get in anywhere. Clubs, Restaurants, etc… I figure, if there is a wait, consider the crowds inside, waiting to bump into you…or the slow service you are going to get in a busy restaurant. ICK!

3. I am fairly sarcastic. Having been a stand up comic (long ago) I tend to find the humor in just about everything. Nothing is sacred.

4. When I am stressed out, I clean. EVERYTHING in my path!

5. I am an habitual shopper. Online, offline, always looking for and, (I must compliment myself here), finding GREAT deals. My kid has an amazing wardrobe. LOL

6. I take things too personally. When I post here on the blog, or comment on others’, I want scores of comments. When they don’t come? I wonder what I did wrong. I wonder if the blog is too “involved”…too difficult to read or navigate. I get twisted about it, but then I get over it. See # 7.

7. I have a temper. Sort of. I get angry, flip out, scream, yell, and get over it…all in the space of 10 seconds. and mostly in my head. Yes, I talk to myself when I am angry or upset. After all, being a Stay AT Home Parent, who is going to listen?

8. I hate the fact that I am getting old…I just don’t feel it, yet, when I look in the mirror, there it is.

9. I miss being on stage. I was a successful actor for a time…stage, tv, movies, commercials…*Sigh*….

10. Two of my biggest pet peeves are:* BAD DRIVERS.* LACK OF COMMON SENSE!

AARRRGH! (talking inside my head again) Whew! there…over it!

P.S. Watch out...these people are next! (let's see if they notice!). And, even if they dont, click their names to visit their blogs...I can assure you, every blog is worth every moment!

WELL DONE :) And for the record I love your blog, even if I don't comment on every post. I agree about the standing in line thing too, I don't have time for that!

Wow thanks for the mention.

Even if I don't comment, I'm always reading AND watching for Bella pics. I can't wait for her Spring/Summer 2010 runway pics.

Spuds said...

Thanks Dude!!! Your 10 Items of Interest were actually VERY interesting! I will be sure to send more comments!!! And in your shopping adventures if you could keep an eye out for a good deal on tailored dress shirts... just shoot me a note!

A nice wuss. I think that just might sum it up. And I don't even really know you that well yet.

I read Teacher Tom and Whacked Daddy too.

But, now, I shall branch out.

I am definitely guilty of #6 too! (i try to convince myself everyone feels this way!)

Thanks for the mention! Now I have pondering material for my drive to and from work. Hmm..10 things...

PJ Mullen said...

Wow, our lists could be nearly the same. 2, 3, 6, 7 and 10 for sure. That is too funny.

Keith Wilcox said...

I'm with you about thinking of 10 things! I shall give it a try though :-) I didn't know you were an actor! That's so cool. I too have a bit of a temper and I could very easily be a compulsive shopper if I had the money (but I never admit that to anybody -- well, I guess I just did). Thanks for the recognition, man! I appreciate it.

surprised mom said...

Thanks for mentioning me in such great company! Your list and mine could be identical . . . except I only cried at commercials when I was pregnant LOL! So, I have to come up with 10 things . . . I should ask my girls, I'm sure they could think of some things . . .

BTW, I love reading your blog. And next time you're in Chicago and feel stressed, PLEASE come over and clean my house. You'll have a ball! :)

Toddler Knows Best said...

awe, shucks. thanks!

hey, my lady Grown Up used to be an actor too before she got knocked-up with my brother. you two should start an internet acting company.

Teacher Tom said...

Even though I've had late meetings the past two nights (I'm usually in bed by 9 p.m.) and having major email issues (damn Comcast), I noticed. And I'm incredibly flattered.

Lines, bleah!

I'm not at all surprised about the stand-up comic and actor parts of your resume.

You're invited to come over to my house any time -- especially when you're stressed out!

It's always nice to get recognized with an award, congrats! It is well deserved.

I love your randomness and every last one of us blogging types gets mental about comments and a lack there of. They are like crack and we visibly shake when we don't get our fix. It doesn't matter how many or little we get, we always NEED more.
