When Lame = Versatile

Wow, the lovely ladies at 18 Years to Life bestowed upon me my very first blogging award!  I'm still in denial that people other than my mom read this blog.  Hi, Mom!

Now, there are prerequisites to meet before I can accept this award.  And darned if I neglect to follow them and earn an "F" in blogging etiquette.  It would be like college pre-calculus all over again.

First thank and link to the blogger who gave you the award.

Check! (see above)

Let me see...
  1. I played high school tennis for 2 years, and never won a single match.
  2. I'm the only person in the world who likes the song "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?" by Paula Cole.
  3. I played an elderly Jewish man in my high school production of "Fiddler on the Roof."  I danced with a bottle on my head.
  4. It took 10 years of knowing my husband before I could comfortably fart in front of him.
  5. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.
  6. I look up and to the left whenever I'm deep in thought.
  7. I don't like brussels sprouts.  I tried, oh how I tried, but I just can't do it.

Yo - you are all cooler than me.  I'm ok with this.

Seriously, though, thanks again to Dana at 18 Years to Life for giving me the opportunity to pass some bloggy love onto some others who deserve it.

Hey! Thank you so much. I DO like Brussels sprouts but only if I have a sling-shot.

Marianna Annadanna said...

Thank you! I nominate you back! You are very "versatile" and also hilarious. Hubby knows you as Angela - with the dead sham wow mop.

I still can't fart in front of Hubby, I also hate brussel sprouts, and I LOVE that song!

Brandy Rose said...

Awesome! Thank you so very much :D And I love Where have all the cowboys gone.

Betty Fokker said...

Many, many thanks! I'd blush, but inherent fabulousness prevents me for displays of modesty :)

Mom said...

Hi to you too! I forgot about that bottle dance!

Love, Mom

@dbs - slingshots would render brussel sprouts tolerable!

@Marianna Annadanna - after having my husband witness me birthing 2 children, I figure there's nothing about my nether regions he hasn't encountered. Farts paled in comparison. Usually.

@Brandy Rose - Glad I'm in such good company! "Where is my furry son" my ass!

@Betty Fokker - good for you! Modesty is overrated.
