Sunshine and Crabs
It's WTF Friday, Yo'! And boy have I got a little nugget to clog up your mind...
I've been awarded The Sunshine Award! WTF??? I'm trying to play it cool, 'cause, you know, I'm cool and stuff. But I am kind of excited. The Sunshine Award is like a SAG award in the blogging community. Except there is no trophy, no fancy dress, no free booze, and no paparazzi. So really, it's nothing like a SAG award, but it is given by a fellow blogger who thinks your stuff is better than crap. And I will take that as a major award. So, thank you to The Hypnotic Bard at The Insomniac's Dream for the love!
Bam! I get to make this into a sticker and wear it all week!
Just like any award, with it comes some serious responsibilities. This may be a total load of crap, I don't know. The only award I've ever gotten was one of those "Thanks for Playing" blow-up toys you get when you throw a ping pong ball into a gold fish bowl at the county fair. So having bestowed these responsibilities on me leads me to seriously question The Hypnotic Bard's sanity. Or at least her sobriety.
In any event, I have to answer some questions so you can get to know me better (as if you don't already know I use the F-word all the time, I frequently wet my pants, and I have a love-hate relationship with Walmart), AND I get the privilege of sending the award onto 5 bloggers whose stuff I think is better than crap. And so you see, the circle of blog life has been revealed.
So without further ado...
1) What is your favorite Christmas movie?
I am a fan of A Christmas Story because I love lamp.
2) What is your favorite flower?
The Peony. Or Pee-oe-nay as I was informed by the lead horticulturalist at Walmart. It is the flower that symbolizes romance and prosperity and is regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage. Which is really ironic, because it is also the State flower of Indiana and Indiana doesn't even bother keeping track of divorces they happen so frequently. Oh, and it is certainly not a "prosperous" state by any stretch of the imagination. Cue banjos...
3) What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?
Hmmm... Coffee, I guess. Water? I drink a lot of water. And I usually put ice in my wine, 'cause I like water that much and I am one classy broad.
4) What is your passion?
I am passionate about aesthetics. Making things pretty is a major obsession of mine. Which is a strange contradiction since I haven't even bothered to put on make-up in about 3 weeks, and my shirt currently has pit stains AND BBQ Sauce on it. Hey fellas...
5) What is your favorite time of the year?
I love Spring. I love the smell of wet decaying leaves from the fall before. I love the squishy wetness of the grass after the snow melts. I love the smell of lilacs, the first real indication that Spring has indeed sprung. I also love not having to shovel. Not that I ever do, but it looks like a real pain in the ass.
6) What is your favorite time of day?
5pm... it's wine o'clock. I also really enjoy the butt-crack of dawn. Actually, several hours before the crack shows it's, well, crack. It is peaceful in the house and my brain is fully functional, which is a rare and tender time. I usually sleep through it.
7) What is your favorite physical activity?
Dancing. My husband is a ladies man and we went dancing before we ever became a "thing". Yeah, that night he could have gotten into my pants in the men's room. I mean, it was salsa night, and that shizzle is HOT, HOT, HOT! But he was a gentleman and didn't take advantage. I knew he was a keeper.
8) What is your favorite vacation?
So many favorites, but my all time favorite was Bar Harbor, Maine. I saw the most beautiful sunrise ever and shared it with the man of my dreams over slightly warm Dom Perignon from the night before, and I got to wear a crab hat and walked around town pretending to be a pirate. It doesn't get better than romantic sunrises, champagne, pirates, and crabs.
And so now I get to bestow this honor on five bloggers who make me laugh. Is that a necessary qualification? Technically, no. But for me, it is a big ol' "YES"!
So check out these hilarious folks, and tell 'em I sent ya ;)
There are a ton of other super funny, super smart bloggers out there that I would love to share the accolades of, but alas, I only get 5 this time. So gimme another award and I will share some more gems that float in a virtual sea of doo-doo. Oh, and, thank you to the Academy. :)
