Two posts in a day? How can this even be?
It doesn’t matter. I’m tickled, though, because my favorite Irish-person (Hi, Janey!!!), over at Cupid or Cats, has nominated me for one thumb shy of an entire handful of awards. 😀 These always make me so doggone happy. That said? If you’re reading this and haven’t read or subscribed to Janey’s blog? Go check her out. I promise you won’t be sorry!
Blogging: I do it when I’m happy, sad, pissed, feeling informative, or simply just because. I have always been able to communicate more effectively through writing. Even when I was a kid, I would journal like a maniac. I have three full volumes of daily entries stashed in my house from those years. I probably need to find them and leave them with someone safe, just in case I get mowed down by a bus or something. Some things are simply not for public consumption. Just sayin’… With the technology age came the ability to type faster than I can write, yet not quite as quickly as I can think, but it sure has made it easier, that’s for sure.
So, in no particular order, these are the awards that we are talking about (and honestly? I have to laugh, because I am so far from inner peace, except, maybe, for tonight, because I had some terrific eggplant for dinner and am kind of in my own personal Zen place), so read on:
The first is the Inner Peace Award (which just tickles me, because apparently I’m giving the impression I’m not a hyper, bouncing-off-the-wall weirdo):
I am fairly certain that when I share this with the hubs and some of my friends, they will all be laughing at me, not with me, ha ha. 😉
The second is the Awesome Blog Content Award:
I appreciate this, simply because my content is so ridiculously varied that sometimes I can’t even keep track. Welcome to the inner workings of my mind, what’s left of it. 😀
The third is the Most Influential Blogger Award:
I don’t know how influential my posts actually are, but even one person affected in a positive way? Then I’m happy. 😉
And finally, The Sunshine Award:
I like to try and spread as much of this around as I can when I’m not fussing or venting about something.
So this is the part where I’m supposed to describe myself using all the letters in the alphabet. Please, try to stay awake, but if you can’t? I won’t take it personally (nor will I know, ha ha).
A – Animated. I’m half Sicilian, and I have the whole “talking with my hands” thing down to a fine art.
B – Beautiful. On the inside, almost all the time. (A kind heart gets you further than a pretty face.) On the outside when I actually HAVE a good hair day.
C – Comedienne. I sometimes think that I should have done stand-up for a living, but I also think I would have had to get over that whole public-speaking-makes-my-my-face-really-red-thing first.
D – Dramatic. I didn’t get my Academy Award and the title of “Drama Queen” at the office for nothing.
E – Eloquent. (Wait till you read some of my fiction…you’ll see…)
F – Fun. ‘Nuff said.
G – Generous. If I have it? I’ll give it to you if I can spare it, and sometimes even if I can’t.
H – Hysterical. This is a double edged sword in that I can be hysterically happy or hysterically upset. I don’t do average.
I – Introspective. I look inward more than outward in a lot of ways. It doesn’t mean I’m self-centered. It just means I’m aware of how I may come across.
J – Jackass. Hey. We all go there sometimes. At least I’m freaking honest, right?
K – Kind. Most days.
L – Loving. No brainer. Right? RIGHT? 😉
M – Moody. Self-explanatory.
N – Nasty. Like really ugly when provoked. As in mean and nasty. See Sicilian temper. 😉
O – Optimistic. Most days. Silver linings and all that crap. 😉
P – Personable. Jeebus, I love just about everyone and make friends easily…I should moonlight as a waitress. I bet the tips would rock.
Q – Queen Bitch. Nuff Said. 😉
R – Resilient. I’ve bounced back from some shit, that’s for sure.
S – Sexy. Or not. It’s subjective. It’s cool.
T – Tenacious. My husband can vouch for this…only when he says it, it doesn’t sound like a compliment, ha ha.
U – Understanding. Ask the girls at work. 😉
V – Volunteer. I seem to do this more than I should, but that’s still not a bad thing.
W – Witty. Sometimes. Okay, most times, but often mistaken for sarcasm.
X – Are you freaking kidding me? This is a family show. (There’s your answer, muwahahahaha.)
Y – Young-at-Heart. I refuse to grow up.
Z – Zealous. I have always wanted to use that word somewhere…but hey…It fits in many situations. 😉
So yeah…that was the hard part…and now I am giving you a list of bloggers I find simply amazing. They are thought provoking, fun to read, personable (kind of like, oh, I dunno, yours truly, LOL), and I hope that you’ll check them out.
Nominees? Please don’t feel as if you need to participate, but DO know that because I listed y’all here? I think you all are really amazing, so I tip my hat to you. (See “D” above, ha ha.)
So, I hope that you all will jump on board, because I am always curious to see everyone else’s answers. 🙂
Until next time…
