MORE AWARDS?!?! Dreams are coming true, folks...

Mega sorries for the delay since my last post. If you're anything like I imagine you are, I'm sure all 6 of you have had some pretty restless nights and many days were spent viciously refreshing your blogroll.

So I'm back. And guess what! (I know. There's no surprise because I can't keep a secret and already spilled those beans up there in the title.) I have more aWaRdS!!!
Shall I do the honors?? Of course, I shall.

Thankyou thankyou thankyous to my new internet besties (Note: Anyone who gives me an award gets an automatic promotion to this prestigious status) Lacey Ree at This Freckled Lemonade, Jessica at Cheese Grater in Paradise, and Coyote Rose at Dancing on the Bar of Life. All of these lovely ladies think that MY blog is worthy of the (wait for it.......) Versatile Blogger Award!!! And if three separate geniuses happen to think I'm a versatile blogger, well, who am I to argue.

In fact, I'm so versatile, I googled images for "Versatile Blogger" and picked another image to use as my award. This is cutting edge stuff here, people.

According to the rules of the world wide web, the award goes something like this:

1. Thank the award giver. (Duh. I'm not turning my backs on you now, mes amis.)

2. Share seven things about yourself. (Only seven??? This is where I may have some difficulties.)

3. Nominate new award winners and let them know. (Oh, don't you worry. Check and check.)

Ok, so since THREE (did you catch that? I said THREE) people nominated me, I feel it's only natural to share 21 things about myself. And for those of you who are my real-life friends, most of these may seem familiar because they've been recycled from a Facebook note.

1. I don't like chocolate, marshmallow, coconutz, or peanut stuff.

2. When I was around 8 years old I begged my mom for L.A. Gear shoes. For Christmas she got me cheap knock-offs because we didn't have a lot of money. I wanted to DIE. Now I look back and think it's lame that it bothered me so much.

3. There's a rumor going around that I got wasted and puked at a Bat Mitzvah.

4. My college roommate Katie and I backpacked across Europe- London, Paris, Barcelona, Valencia, Rome, and Amsterdam to be exact. It was the trip of a lifetime.

5. I wish I had the time/ money to take fine art classes again.

6. Try putting a dress on a cat. You'll love the way it looks, I guarantee. And by looks, I mean paralyzes.

7. I'm lactose intolerant. Despite my gastrointestinal tract's pleas for mercy, half of my diet consists of butter and cheese. (Shout out to my homie Lactaid Fast Act.)

8. Accidentally saying "Reece's Penis" (instead of Reece's Pieces) or "Beaver Cleavage" (instead of Beaver Cleaver) or that you want to live in a "condom" (instead of a condo) when you are little is NOT funny.

9. I made it all the way to the state level of the Science Fair. I have the trophy to prove it.

10. As a kid I had imaginary friends who were mice named Kiki and Kuku.

11. One day in college Susie and I thought it would be funny if I played a trick on Rawnie by telling her to wear a certain outfit (I had the EXACT same one, head to toe) to class the next day. So, the next day I wore the same outfit and caused a scene saying "Oh my god, I TOLD you I was going to wear this today! Why would you do that?!?"

12. I lovelovelove disco music- my favorite song is "You Make Me Feel" by Sylvester. I wish Studio54 was still around and I was cool enough to get in.

13. A few years back I was taking Christmas photos of my sister and her kids all dressed up. My niece Annalise was sitting on my lap all prim and proper in her Christmas dress when she accidentally farted. I laughed so hard, launching her off my lap saying "Ewwwww, Annalise- gross!!!" She got really embarrassed and ran out of the room, crying. I still think it's funny.

14. One time in Vegas, I was pulled on stage by Penn and Teller to be a magician's assistant. I will share this story with you at a later date.

15. It makes me sad when I see older people working minimum wage jobs. That's someone's grandparent, they should be relaxing with their grandkids, not cleaning up my dirty dishes.

16. I will take a Stella over a glass of wine, any day.

17. My favorite genre of music is 80's New Wave. There aren't nearly enough dance clubs that cater to this type of enjoyment.

18. I have a deep-rooted fondness for carbohydrates. And horchata.

19. My favorite toy as a child was a dollhouse my Grandpa bought me. From the thrift store.

20. Sometimes when I'm at my desk I find it hard to concentrate on anything other than my bellies hanging over my jeans.

21. I lived in a UCLA frat house one summer. Talk about disgusting.

I am now passing this magnificent award on to...

Danielle at So Here's What You Missed...

Ally at Fourth Grade Nothing

Asha Lanae at ...Project Me

RN Mama at 29 and Holding...

Junks at Junket Juice


And for my next bit of totally believable unbelievable news, Sara Louise from Le Petite Village has ALSO given me an award!!! That's right. Amazing things are happening.


For this award, you need to list ten things that make you happy. Since I could be here all day, I'm going to limit my answers. Here we go...
1. Good makeup days.
2. Good parking spots.
3. Good meals.
4. Good deals.
5. Making food that isn't poisonous.
6. Being goofy with friends.
7. Playing Rock Band.
8. Doing things well. Whatever it is. Doesn't matter.
9. Hearing favorite songs on the radio.
10. Dressing up for costume parties.

And now I'm bestowing this lovely over to NikosMommy at Fabulous! (Pasta Not Included). Congrats!

And thank you to all my besties!!!

I love the tag you gave this post. Too funny!

Junket said...

Thanks for the award. I will try to oblige after I write a heartfelt post to Lauren Conrad. But after THAT....I'm in.

Who in their right mind doesn't like chocolate or coconut? The two of them together make me a very blissful person.

Nikosmommy said...

A love of 80's New Wave AND Disco? Could it be that we were separated at birth, but somehow you ended up in awesomesauce California and I in cold-as-balls Canada?

And NOW I too am "Happy 101" thanks for the award missy!! I lurve the accolades!!!!!

Coyote Rose said...

If i had known all i had to do was give you an award to be one of your internet besties, I would have done it along time ago. Because i am that kind of whore for attention.

Also your blog is all sorts of fabulous!

LaceyRee said...

congrats on the awards, my friend! I can't wait to hear the Penn and Teller story, they crack me up with their show "Bullshit" and I am so totally jealous that you were pulled on stage!!!

mina2 said...

i give you a good eater award, ambassador of style award and excellent effort award for your "versatile" graphics.

Sara Louise said...

Hee hee...

LA Gear! Blast from the horrible past! I wonder if they still make these (and I got a knockoff Cabbage Patch for Xmas once because we didn't have any money either)

Dancing at Studio54 30 years ago is a dream of mine too. Since we're besties now, I think we should hop in a Delorean, go back in time, and shake our bonbons together. But I call dibs on David Bowie!

And I want to hear about how you ended up living in a frat house. Were there frat boys involved???

allison said...

you need to build a trophy case for all these awards! you could keep them next to your state science fair prize.

hahahahahahah!!!! livin in a condom.

Wombat Central said...

Lactaid Fast Act ROCKS.

Congrats!

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

Jessica- thanks! but seriously, i really am surprised to get any kind of award bc i'm pretty sure my mom and i are the only ones who read this blog.

Junks- don't you EVER put lauren conrad ahead of me again. get your priorities straight.

Nikos- just reading that you love new wave and disco makes me think you are totally radical. i like you even more now.

Rose- i like that you are openly admitting to being an attention whore. that's totally acceptable 'round these parts.

Lacey- i've never heard of the show Bullshit... i feel like i'm letting my friends P&T down by not fulling stalking them. i may have to look into this...

Mina- i am more than honored to have the Good Eater award and Ambassador of Style award. i'm going to post these accomplishments on the fridge for everyone to see.

Sara- there were frat boys involved, but not many. long story short... one day i decided to move to LA like asap. the Sigma Chi house happened to be renting out rooms to make extra cash during the summer. i'm not gonna go into much detail bc thinking about it is kinda making me want to fro up.

Allison- when you are little and make a mistake like that IT.IS.NOT.FUNNY.

Wombat- thanks! maybe for my first giveaway, i'll make a Lactaid basket.

Ally said...

Thank you so much for mentioning me here! I'm sorry it has taken me so long to swing by. I've been in a horrible funk and rut :(

I love that you had imaginary friends and that Reeces Penis thing is too funny :) I wish I didn't like chocolate and marshmallow.

drollgirl said...
