All right so the first award was given to me a few weeks ago by Sandy over at Moments of Mommyhood. She's so sweet and has awesome and creative. She does awesome crafts with her kids. She's way more creative then I am, and I'm pretty sure she's a better mom then me. Mallory has a crafting gift she got for Christmas last year (that's Christmas '08) that I never did with her. Yeah, I suck. (This isn't a very good acceptance speech.)
So the rules of this award ( I know, right, bloggie awards come with rules. Whatever happened to swag bags?) are that I have to list 10 things that make me happy and then pass this award onto ten more bloggers. I'm going to change the rules to suit my
I will, however, tell you one thing that makes me happy. Make-up. I love it. I wear too much. Some might think I look like I belong in KISS, but I'm not ashamed. Bring on the eyeliner. I'm passing this award on to Bibi over at From Misery To Happiness In 365 Days. Bibi, feel free to follow the actual rules of this award. Don't be like me. I'm headed down a dark path.
Let's take a peek at that second award, shall we?
Oh, it's shiney and has a hammer on it...I think. This honesty award comes courtesy of Foxy over at The Fox Den. She's currently dating George Clooney. Her blog sparkles, and she totally cracks me up. Before I jump into the rules of accepting this award and passing it on, I would like to thank my mother for all the spankings she bestowed on me whenever I even thought about lying. It was her dedication to corporal punishment that has really won this award. I couldn't have done it without you, Mom. I share this award with you.
This Honesty award requires that I pass it on so I am. So raise your hammer's, here's to Jeanette (life's always funniest when you are honest) and London (secretly honest. You have to love that).
Now for the honesty bit and also my very own Razzy (that's what I'm calling it.) I got my first ever comment by someone who truly disliked me. My husband and Jessica both feel that this is a good sign of some kind. I personally feel like it was sign that it was time for me to sign up over at Dooce Community. (That girl gets a lot of hate mail and now I feel a kinship to her. Not that mine is actual hate but I'm allowed to be a bit dramatic if I want to. It's my blog.) The award doesn't have a flashy button but I'm calling it the "Cheers Mate!"
...I can't help but still call you out on e-whoring. Not that all the guys aren't more interested in reading your blogs if you make it doubly apparent you're female (Make sure you mention 'boobs' at least twice in every article if you want to maximize your traffic), but we're more likely to recommend your blog to our friends and read it religiously if you continuously make reference to the fact that you lack a penis.
As long as you don't mind the fact that you're devaluing your opinion in trade for more readers, then there's nothing wrong here.
In your defense, though, don't worry. It doesn't matter if you devalue your opinion to be honest. With your approach to writing, people aren't reading for it anyway. They're reading due to your boobs, not intellect.
Oh yeah, he totally signed it Cheers Mate. And I got called an e-whore. What is that even? So here's the honesty:
I giggled when I read this.
The rules of receiving a Cheers Mate is that you all must comment on this post and I'll chose one commenter's blog to go over to and leave a harsh (anon) comment about you and your blog and I might even call you an e-whore. I've got my fingers crossed for each of you. Good luck.
