This Post Is Long Overdue and I'm Sorry

Ok I did it again. I know. I'm sorry. It's been almost another entire week since I posted. I must be the worlds worst blogger. Do they make a pill or something to help me fix this problem? Anyone? No? Okay then. It was worth a shot.

So first things first. The wonderful and lovely janjan over at Between Me and My Thoughts has won an award for being an awesome commenter. Congratulations janjan! You deserve it. Then she went out on a limb and passed the award on to me!! Thanks so much! It's my first, and I'm so excited!

Next comes the rules. Apparently there are rules for accepting awards. I'm not always so good at following rules but I'll give it my best shot.

1. Thank person who nominated me. Check!
2. Copy the award. Paste it in my blog. Check!
3. Link to the person who gave me this award. Check!
4. Answer the 10 questions that come with the award. Huh? Oh right...


1. Why do you blog?

Because I enjoy writing. Also because I love sharing my opinions with the world in hopes of enlightening another. (Aren't I just an arrogant bitch?) Oh yeah, and because I need a place to whine where somebody might actually listen to me and share my misery.

2. What are your 3 best memories?

When I was like 7 or so, and Christmas came. Our entire (finished) basement seemed to be filled with presents for my sister and I. And somewhere under that tree, was an original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) complete with Super Mario Brothers 3. The best video game ever made in the history of forever. It is now stored on my Wii hard drive.

My 19th birthday I went on my first trip to Montreal. I danced all night at an after hours club after having my first legal drinks in a real bar, which was underground and totally awesome. I walked 2 miles in 4 inch heels in the blazing hot sun at 8 in the morning to drive 4 (or was it 6?) hours back home. I danced/walked so much my ankles bled and I have the scars to prove it.

A couple weeks ago the boyfriend and I went for a ride in his little honda civic. That's it. We just drove. We watched the sunset and the moon rise, and it was wonderful just being there to see it with him.

3. If you had to change your real name what would you change it to?

I don't think I would change it. While I like other names most of them are exotic and strange sounding and I don't feel they really fit me.

4. What are five things you can't live without?

1. Bruce - the 'stang. (Ok I realize it's effed up that this was the first thing that came to mind, but he is one SEXY convertible.)
2. Mr. Wonderful, Friend, My Mumma and Dadda who are always good for sharing a laugh with and can always offer a warm hug or a shoulder to cry on.
3. In-phone GPS - Seriously LOST without it.
4. Mom's cooking.
5. Video games. There I said it. I admitted it. I am a video game whore. Get over it.

5. What are the 4 best books you've ever read?

1. The Green Mile by Stephen King - This book made me buy a mouse just so I could name him Mr. Jingles. And guess what? When they escape from their cages (and they will) they don't just come scurrying back to you. This was highly disappointing. Either way, awesome book.
2. The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning - The 1st book caused me to have my first ever crush on a completely fictional character. Jericho Barrons if you're listening, CALL ME!!
3. The Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich - are fucking hilarious. Stephanie Plum makes my driving record look great.
4, 5, 6, and 7. Bel Canto, The Odyssey, Pride and Prejudice, The Golden Compass Series.

Yeah I know there's actually like 30 books in that list. But I'm pretty sure I've already established that counting isn't my strong suit.

6. Tell me something unique and interesting about yourself.

If I've arrived five minutes late, you should consider me early.

7. What do you love best about yourself?

I'm short. Sometimes I stand up on a step stool and think about what it would be like to walk around at that height ALL the time. It seems like such a long way to fall and that scares me.

8. What is the best movie ever made?

1. Field of Dreams - If you build it, he will come.
2. Dances with Wolves - Surprisingly enough this coincidence has nothing to do with Kevin Costner.
3. The Green Mile - The movie was awesome too.
4. The Blind Side - Seriously the best movie I've seen in a long time. It blew Avatar out of the water.

Oh yeah, and The Hangover, just because.

9. If you had a "freaky friday" experience who would you trade places with and why?

Vin Diesel's wife. Or girlfriend. Or lover. Must I really explain why?

10. What's the best part about being a woman?

Manipulating the fact that I am of the "weaker sex" to get men to do things for me.

Have you had fun getting to know me?

That's what I thought. Back to the rules.

4. Answer the 10 questions that come with the award. Check!
5. Nominate of few of your favorite bloggers for the award.

Alright my first nomination goes to Becky over at Paper Hearts and Butterfly's. My first follower who got me started and kept me going.

My second nomination goes to Chicken, over at The Chicken's Consigliere. She recently made an entire post out of comments she left on other people's blogs. Mine included.

My third nomination goes to Fin at Curly Haired Confessions, who since she started following, hasn't failed to leave me a comment! Thanks Fin!

My fourth nomination goes to SJ at Daemons, who seems to share my twisted sense of humor. Love reading your comments SJ!

Rule number 5 - Check!

6. Post links to the bloggers you nominate. Check!

That's it!! Bloggers enjoy the awards, you earned them!

P.S. I accidentally invented a new word while writing this post because I just got home from work and am very tired. Ready for it? Whould. Isn't it great? I shortened the words "who would" into "whould". I am a fucking genius.


  1. if you're gonna post this award a week late, i'd still consider that early haha! you never fail to amuse me girl. love your answers. and yeah, you're a fucking genius. Whould negate that? :)

  2. I love the Stephanie Plum Novels. I just finished 11. So needless to say, I think you have great taste.

    I also enjoy your posts.

    Keep it up!

  3. janjan - I'm so glad you understand my problem with lateness. And also glad you don't hate me for it. Thanks again for the award!

    Ella - I think I finished all like 15 of these novels in record time. I joined the Stephanie Plum band wagon a little late and managed to read all of them inside of a month or so. Also Ranger was the second fictional character I ever had a crush on. Glad you enjoy reading my posts!!

  4. Well done in getting your award. Don't worry about only posting once a week, that's all I do - otherwise it seems like I'm pestering the poor souls called followers.

  5. I love reading these questions! Part of me felt the urge to do them regardless of the award: I always feel good when my readers obtain a better sense of who I am as a person!

    And yeah, I feel you there with the lack of blogging. I know we each have our own struggles, however, two jobs and full time school does not free time make.

    Thanks for the nomination dearie! :)

  6. Yeah, what Iron said.....I enjoy your blog even if you only post once a week.

  7. Iron Criterion & Amber - Thanks for the support! It seems like so many people post about 3 tomes a week, which is about what I was doing when I first started this blog. But now that summer's finally arriving I can't seem to find the time.

    Fin - Hey you earned it! Enjoy the accolades and answer away!! I'll be waiting to read your answers.

    Kinsey - Thanks so much!!

  8. I have a total crush on Morelli.. I think its the sensible head.. or perfect body.. I mean, I'm not really sure :) And yes, I think Ranger would have the same kind of affect on me, if I wasn't so partial already.

  9. Hey S. S. Hey. It's me. Chicken. Congrats on your award. I think you are an awesome commenter so well done, you. A few things. Thanks for the double mention and the award. That's a new one for me! Guess I better post something now. Cause while I'm good at commenting, I suck at posting. By the way, you forgot to mention who whould (haha) always lure Mr. Jingles back by setting traps with cocoa puffs. Ahem. Who's a genius now? And I'm a Ranger girl.

  10. vin diesel's wife/partner/gf! why why why

    im a gamer too so yay! on that

  11. Super Comments award! :) cool.
