Dear God, It's Me Michel.....Again....

Ummm.....I'm really SORRY that I totally lied to everyone in order to hog the prize at Gaston Studios. My only defense is that I FINALLY started to feel good again and I was all giddy with excitement because -- and I was thinking -- what if the prize was CAKE?! Or, what if the prize was some sort of other non-life-threatening or poisoning-you food? I mean seriously? How cool would that be??

And then, I guess I just went a little bit crazy and I might have mislead a few people....again.

I am also sorry that I promised that I would be good if you stopped smoting me for the last thing I did -- I really don't think we need to go into that here. I mean, we've been over that. I said I was sorry! And I still contend that nobody could have known that guy's was allergic to dirt and would have to go home. I kinda think he was faking it.

Seriously. Why the hell would you COME to Sudan!??!?! And, it wasn't just me....everyone kinda thought it was funny -- I was going with the whole Sudan-dirt piles cropping up theme. Besides, I really think he was overreacting to a small -- okay, somewhat large - dirt pile placed lovingly in the middle of his desk. I mean, I worked really hard to tote that bucket up the Embassy stairs (that elevator still continues to catch on fire. Were you going to send someone to fix that? Oh, sorry. I meant to call GSO about that, not you. I'm sure you're busy.) ANYWAY, who knew a bucket of dirt could be so heavy.

Okay, yes, now that you bring it up, I am also sorry I lied to the Sudanese worker when I told him that we needed that dirt on an emergency basis and that President Obama asked me to specifically ask him to carry it upstairs. However, you gotta admit...who the hell would fall for that? It's culling the herd, frankly.

I think I speak for everyone when I say, God, that I am sorry and I will not play dirty tricks to win a contest again. Unless the prize is really important -- I mean. No! I will not do so again (because that is bad. I get that now).

I will also apologize to Blognut. (*fingers crossed*)

Oh, you can see that....nevermind.

Wait, is this a whole "I've been a naughty girl and I need a spanking" thing? Cuz I'm pretty sure Josh isn't there with you, and, like, asking the ambassador for a spanking is SO frowned upon.

Hit 40 said...

You accidentally in good fun made some one sick with a pile of dirt? Oh this kinda shit happens to me all the time!!! You were just trying to be a good co worker...

you know. Doing a little team building!!

Medora said...

Oh, man, I hate "team building" - my old boss used to talk about that all the time - it just meant I got to do all the work and everyone else took credit for it, as a "team." Then they all ate ice cream and bonded while I finished the job.

blognut said...

Ha! I don't think God is buying any of this, but you can think what you want.

I accept your apology, fingers crossed or not, because I am very cool like that.

Also, thanks again for the fab blog award because that rocks even more than a Little Debbie snack or a piece of cake.

Amanda said...

I'm not sure which is funnier, the coworker being allergic to dirt, or you telling the Sudanese worker that President Obama needed the dirt.

Who's allergic to dirt?

Gaston Studio said...

The funniest thing is that someone fell for her telling them President Obama asked for her specifically to carry it upstairs! Culling the herd, indeed.

Glad that Blognut's going to forgive you; I haven't made up my mind as yet and I, too, can see those fingers behind your back because I'm a MOM!

Tee aka The Diva's Thoughts said...

Hahahaha!I think God needs a little more convincing,

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh, now Michel, we have a problem here. It's not so much your prayer of apology. It's that your lil sister friend, Blognut is so happy that you even thought about the apology, she has already forgiven you. . . especially since you gave her an award.

However, Mama Jane over here, is watching you like a real Mom. She's got your number.

I'm thinking intercessory prayers are a must! You want me to get started? If so, I'll need that give away Jane is letting go of on the 24th!

Matthew said...

If you ever cull the herd successfully where you are, come over to Australia. We can probably keep you busy for a decade. :)

Amy said...

Michel, I tried to post this last night but I guess it didn't work.
I am so on your side with all this. A little healthy competition is always fun. And really you were not totally lying about all this. It is called "Competitive Distraction". A method used to get everyone's mind off the prize and keep yourself so focused on it that it becomes totally yours.
Girl, I am with ya!! You are absolutely someone I could have on my team!!!
Now, just let me have that wonderful giveaway, and we will talk about some other "competitive distraction" techniques and I will gladly share all I know with you!!!!

Beth said...

In my opinion, all is fair when cake is in the picture.

Beth said...

Could you come and cull the herd at my school? I'll buy you cake.

darsden said...

yea me too I tried to post this before Amy and somehow she pushed me down and look at her.. she and Pastor Sharon are both before me..that's just not how it's done here in blogland.. Gonna have to talk to them.. (I have pictures of you carring them buckets of sand!!) Hang on ...(reaching behind me to grab one of those lil chocolate lil debbies...I don't want to drop it...) hummmm yummmmie.. want some sandy?

darsden said...

darsden said...

not that you asked but I am going to tell you anyway. Rudey is under the weather today...

darsden said...

the storms won't let up! I took her to the vet again today.

darsden said...

She got more puppy drugs starts with an A since the Valiums weren't working.

darsden said...

Yes decided I would beat them in quanity instead of quality...

darsden said...

them being the other commenters

darsden said...

now back to Rudey..oh no I wasn't done. They also did an emergency surgery on her and cut out a bad turmor...I know gross..YOU should have been there..bless her heart she has stitches now...

darsden said...

CK Lunchbox said...

it would've been better if you told him Oprah needed it

blognut said...

I LOVE THE NEW LOOK! Plus, I think it will actually load to my phone so I stalk you all proper like.

YAY! Who did you steal this from?

blognut said...

And where the hell are you today, anyway?

Captain Dumbass said...

Something's different here... can't quite put my finger on it.

She said...

Yay! Cake. If it's cake, I'm definitely entering, and I was so gonna let Blognut win! But she doesn't even like cake or ice cream! Just ask her.

♥ Braja said...

Where am I?

Do I know you?

Hey guess what? I'm apparently a stalker cos I visit the same blogs as someone else. Seriously. I think I'll post the email I got from a cyber-nut....

btw, God rang and said to tell you, "It's all entertainment to Me" and to carry on....

xoxoxo

♥ Braja said...

And I'm still in Byron Bay, which is like the most amazing place on earth and somewhere that girl like you should visit. Now. While I'm here.

ps Bring your gold mastercard....
xo

Amy said...

Darsden, you think it is all about quantity? What about quality? Here I am siding with Michel and trying to build an alliance for this cake prize (God, please make it cake!!) and all you can do is talk about how many comments more you made than me?
Really????

Gaston Studio said...

Love your new look too!

And I'm NOT pulling the Mom card; it stays in play.

Hit 40 said...

Wow!! This new page will take some time to get used too!! Nice. I like your cartoon at the top.

Heidi said...

I love the new look and you are too funny!
I wonder what would happen if I put a pile of poop on my boss's desk...
