I'm not so big on SHARING. I never have been; likely never will be. I tend to enjoy conversations more when they are about me -- and if/when they stray from my selected enjoyable topic, I rapidly lose interest and usually just walk away abruptly. I find this limits my exposure to boring people and topics. (and when I say "boring" people, I mean "other" people) But not YOU boring people, OTHER boring people, totally different from you people.
UNLESS (of course) I have some sort of opinion I feel I need to share with you regarding your topic of conversation. Then I am focused on what you have to say and how I either totally agree with you - and then we will likely become BFFs; or, alternatively, how you are dumb. (Could go either way, frankly.)
Is this so wrong? Can't we all just get along?!
So imagine my horror when I find out that I am being harassed by fellow bloggers whose names I won't mention (Jane, Darsden, Smart Mouth, Beth Fragrant Liar and Hit 40) who have given me these "awards" (no cash involved, which is - as I have mentioned previously, yet nobody seems to take this on board - an OUTRAGE).
Now I'm finding out that there were all kinds of RULES attached to these things. (more than to figure out how to copy paste it into my blog so that I can lord it over Minoy who frequently tries to bogart the blog by posting comments that are not about me and my issues (again, an outrage). Most of them had some kind of narrative about what it meant and why it was special (Frankly, You'd think I would have paid more attention since it allegedly was about me! I guess you just never can tell .... GO FIGURE!)
However, if this was not bad enough, I am now being told that I am supposed to SHARE these things. (I do believe Liz can vouch for me that this task is particularly painful for me.)
THEREFORE, I have elected to do ONE of these things - I will post the pics of the awards and name some people I like to read, harass, and spout my nonsense on their blogs. If you are one of these people, then you can pick whichever award you want (or, all of them). You may also attach whatever significance or meaning you wish to it. (Vodka Mom was very clear that I should not follow rules. She is sort of my Pochahontas of this blogging thing. I'm sure she would never steer me wrong....)
If you do not accept or like awards, I really do not care. That's your dealio. I've done my part for earth day by Sharing. Please do not make me do this again. It goes against my nature. I give, and I give, and I give...
Jane at Gaston Studios - For telling great stories and calling me a bitch (but in a nice way).
Beth at What I should have Said - because she named her dog Poopy. That alone should be given its own award.
Mrs. K - For giving me a recipie for Frosting and instructions how I can tune into important culturally significant television in America. Her selfless act of kindness will be remembered for at least 43 minutes (or, until I end this post).
Amy at the Pregnancy Chronicles - because she told me she had a girl crush on me and even though the name would denote that she is, she doesn't seem to be pregnant!
Jason - at the Jason show - because Jane thinks he is hot and he totally dimes out his neighbors - and that, my friends, makes for good reading!
Clark Kent's Lunchbox - because he's the only other boy follower I have and I didn't want to be discriminatory - and he seems kinda funny...there is that. (With a blog, Jason, Justin and dad - here is your honorable mention!)
Toni at Dee-zigns Jewelry - because I really want her to make me a bracelet and I can only think that sucking up like this will help.
Blognut - because she once accused me of being a boy AND a bitch. That takes balls.
Darsden - because she not only comments on my blog, she comments on the comments. That lady can really judge others...and I back that.
Hit 40 - because she hit 40 yesterday....
Okay, I've grown weary of this linking thing. I should just made you look them all up. God knows I have to every day...but now that Mrs. K showed me TV again, I will likely falter in my quest to be the greatest commenter of all time. (Sorry Beth, you're good! I'll give you that..but you are not ME, and therefore cannot possibly win (when I am the judge). Do you see?)
(HA! Made you look it up!!)
