I have been awarded The Versitile Blogger Award-
from Midwestern Mamah ( visit her on my blogroll or by clicking here. ) Thank you for this honor !
Well knock me down with a plate of cheesecake. I got an award. Woo HOO me ! Not sure why I got it, but the fact is I did, which is a helluva lot better than a poke in the eye with sharp stick or being eaten by Zombies or ninja Zombies or even Jedi. I read a couple blogs that don’t announce when they get an award or whatever. Here’s a clue. I am a Leo, I am a red head, I am a narcissistic attention loving heifer. So yes I will proudly display any awards I get. Spank you very much. Plus I really thought by now real journalist/bloggers would have run me out of the country and off the internet.
Being all new and stuff I had to research what the duties were along with this award.
and will probably screw them up anyway.
The rules are as follows:
– Thank the person who gave you the award. ( check )
– Share 7 things about yourself. ( what share? huh? uhm ok)
– Pass along the award to 15 bloggers who you’ve discovered and who you think are fantastic. (wow that’s like work, cause I think tons are fantastic. )
Lets start with the 7 things about me.
1. I am a middle aged ( gawd that hurt to type that) mom to 3, wife to 1. My kids are awesome and surprisingly survive unlike any plant or pet who has fallen under my care.
2- My oldest kid is 21, and she rocks, my youngest kid is 9. I don’t think there isn’t a mom out there I can’t relate to since I have a closet full of been there done that T-shirts. The younger kid has a way more laid back mom, because the older 2 broke my spirit and now if there isn’t blood I am all cool with that. However I firmly believe I didn’t really teach my kids anymore than they taught me.
3- I call my husband the Droid. ( it actually rhymes with his name which was a big hang up when I decided to date him cause I couldn’t see myself calling out his name EVER. He’s 11 years older than me, which kinda makes him creepy if we had dated when he was 18, but we didn’t so it’s less creepy unless you look at his HS yearbook which is really creepy cause he was on the swim team and they wore speedos. EWW.
4- I was born in Bangcok Thailand. My dad was a loadmaster in the USAF. I have Thai god parents which is a far stretch since most Thai people back when I was born were not of the Christian Faith, so it would been have hard to comprehend the god parent role.
5- Apparently my parents were too busy drinking cocktails and jet setting about to remember to register me with the American Consulate when they brought me to the States and therefore I do not posses a birth certificate. Instead after trying to get a passport in 2006, and months of phone calls and letter writing, I received a letter that said, ” Certification of an American born abroad” Which is useless and singed by Condoleeza Rice who was 14 when I was born. Maybe that’s why this document is USELESS.
6- I used to be a clean freak, germaphobe, anal retentive do everything mom, now I am just a germaphobe.
7- My brain is too big to contain. No seriously, I have this cool thing called Chiari which mean my brain is hanging out. Chairi is not cool, but telling people you have a huge sexy brain and it’s medically documented is. Probably only 30 people in the world knew I had this up until this moment. Mainly because it freaks them all out and they act all funny. Not like funny ha ha, but funny like. OMG she’s gonna DIE and they run away like it’s contagious. It’s not, and even though mine is what is considered severe. I am not having brain surgery ( thank you military insurance for all your help, NOT)
The next step is to pass this along to 15 Bloggers I think are Great. ( *Disclaimer* This is really hard because I love so many and am just entering the blog world. It’s kinda like the first day at a new school when you go to the cafeteria and have to pick a table. Yeah that same feeling, so if your not on here, come sit at my table cause I surely love you bunches anyway.)
Hope4Peyton it was the first blog I ever read, and didn’t even know what a blog was when it was started.
Free Anissa – inspiration, snark and perspective. Get you some here.
Music Savy Mom– cause we all need some good tunes and Ri can rock em.
The Bloggess – Because seriously Jen is probably the Jekcle to my Hyde, and even though she probably wont use this award she was the first person to answer me when I asked If I could put her on the blogroll on my new site. Jen rocks even when Japan is trying to kill her.
Suburban Scrawl – I bonded with her because she was helpful supportive, funny, and spelled her name Melisa with one S. and since I am Sandi with an I, it works.
Daddy Scratches – He’s too funny not to read.
The Sphors are mutliplying – if you don’t know about this site, your probably living under a rock.
Dad Unmasked – 1 superhero dad who doesn’t even realize he is, and his 2 little girls. funny and touching.
Hyperbole and Half – anyone whose illustrations in every post makes you spit mt dew on your keyboard is good news in my book.
House of Jules– I can relate to just about everything she posts, in fact she could be spying on me right now, as in while I am typing this. Creepy huh?
Overflowing Brain– not only because she’s a cool kid like me and has Chiari ( see line 7 ) but Katie keeps pushing, even when it would be easier not to.
Amazing Greis – not only does she make me smile, but sometimes she makes me think. Plus she totally did NOT stab the guy at work in the throat with a #2 pencil, even though I would have given her an alibi, so she got an award.
World of Weasels – clearly the world needs more weasels. Get you some here.
AMomtwoBoys – because seriously who doesn’t love a title that say ” now with more penis” ? ok probably the guys, but yeah it’s funny.
So that’s it, and now off to tell my people to let their people know they won an award which probably will not matter to them because they are real bloggers and not a Leo or narcissistic like me..
