My sista from another mista gave me an award today, and I was shocked! Shocked, I say. I never win anything. Never ever ever. I mean, I won MVP in softball a few times, but I was like 13, and had yet to become a woman, so that doesn't count. I have entered tons of shit over the years, and got dissed every time. But Jenny comes along and just gives me an award for writing about my frazzled life and taking the time to comment on her funnyass blog, too. And she has totally made my day!
This award is for "people that were exceptionally adept at creating relationships with other bloggers by making an effort to be part of a conversation, as opposed to a monologue. These bloggers have all worked hard to build a reputation for themselves by commenting on other blogs, participating in blogging communities, replying to comments left on their blog and overall just doing their part to interact with other bloggers".
I'm a schmoozer, folks! Awesome! You know, I love reading other peoples take on stuff, and then letting them know how much I agreed or disagreed with it. And it has really helped my stress level to be able to write out my life's issues for the whole blogosphere to see. It makes my problems comical, and that makes life much easier to deal with.
So who made my day? Jenny made my day!
And I needed it because my 4 1/2 year old son schooled my ass in bowling yesterday. I mean, I still beat him, but only by 3 points. Three crappy points. I did, however, totally whoop my daughter by 20 points. Add that with the fact I am so old, I actually hurt my back bowling and going to the batting cages. How sad is that? I would kick my own ass if I thought it wouldn't kill me.
And now I am supposed to hand this award out to 5 different bloggers that I think fit the bill. Oh, the pressure of coming up with 5 people. All of the people listed below have made me feel right at home and welcome since I started blogging. I was so hesitant to have a blog at first because, let's face it, I'm a stay at home mom and have no life, but they have made me so happy with what I have written. And I was told not to give it to my husband (even though he is my very favorite blogger).
Here they are in random order:
1. Crystal: Funny funny funny girl! I love people that can make fun of themselves, and she sure does a lot of that.
2. Lizzle: I feel like she's my partner in crime at Happy Hour.
3. Princess: When she's not doing plies down her office hallway or thinking about killing her co-worker, D.A.G., she is busy humoring us with her wedding plans and her tales of life with Funasaurus.
4. Revree: She's just funny! I don't know what else to say. Just check her out, will ya!
5. Marcia: Even though I TOTALLY disagree with her love of pink, I love reading her blog. I am always amazed with crafty people that seem normal. Most crafties are totally freaks or 70 years old.
And that's all, folks! I can only give out 5, even though I know there are plenty of other great schmoozer's out there.
So I'm outta here for now. I have a date with a spinach salad and my couch. I've had the desire to watch Goonies since returning from vacation. Did I tell you I saw the Goonie house (you know where Chunk did the Truffle Shuffle) and drove down the road they rode their bikes on to get to the restaurant? See, I am cool. In a geeky way, but cool nonetheless.
