The Awards I’ve Been Stockpiling

I know what some of you are thinking. It’s something along the lines of this:

WTF, Thoughtsy. I gave you an award months ago, and you haven’t posted it. Oh, Homework, Thoughtsy, I hate you. You stink. I wish I could wash you away in the sink….

Here’s where I post all of the awards at the same time and break all the rules about telling you 7 things about myself. 

For the last award, I told you what kind of cheese I liked.


If you really want to know 7 things about me, ask me a question in the comments. Or go read 7 posts. Do a little leg work. I can’t spoonfeed and spoil you for the rest of your life.

Despite my half-ass participation, I do want to thank everyone who passed along an award to me. I love you! Your Pop-Tarts are in the mail.

And I’m passing the awards along to anyone who’s having a bad day. May one of these awards cheer you up!

BlogHer 2012 Came and Went

BlogHer rocked. And I only went for one day. I can only imagine how much cooler it would have been if I could have stayed longer.

I met some of my favorite bloggers…and new bloggers.

Misty’s Laws, JM the Accidental Stepmom, Me, Go Jules Go

I got so much swag. For example…

Why, yes, I did receive a free Trojan vibrator at BlogHer.

I ate so much free food. And bloggers gave me presents. Presents are always welcome. Thanks, Misty and Jules!

  • “We rescued a teensy stray kitty this weekend… she’s only 3 or 4 weeks old and already my floor exercises offend her.”—Sugar Dish Me

BlogHer in T-Minus 3…2…

BlogHer is in just a few days, and I’m super psyched to see…

Who else is going? Anybody? Hello? Hello?! Is this thing on?

I’m a little bummed that I’m only able to attend on Saturday, but it’s still exciting to meet the women behind the blogs.

A big thank you to Valerie for helping me with my new blog cards! Here’s the image:

Favorite Comment From Last Post: “Oh yes, my dogs ALWAYS cuddled hardest against those that hated and/or were allergic to them. Animals sense when there are people who don’t want the around, and then they THRUST their love upon them. Wait, that sounded dirtier than I intended. Meh.”—Misty’s Laws


Soooo…over the last ::cough…4 or so months…cough:: Trinity River, Ring Finger Tanline, Choc Chip Uru, and West End Singleton gave me the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, ladies!

And because I’m a hoarder, I’m just now posting.

Here are the rules.

  1. Thank the award giver.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award along to some of your favorite bloggers.

Let’s start with the 7 things about myself. I write a lot about the desserts I eat, but now I’d like to fill you on another food I enjoy.


Behold my favorite cheeses. I have a versatile cheese palate.

  1. Cheez Whiz (Yeah, I said it!)
  2. Extra Sharp Cheddar
  3. Feta
  4. Gorgonzola
  5. Blue Cheese (only the cheese, not the dressing)
  6. Mozzarella
  7. Swiss
  8. Nacho (not your) Cheese
  9. Cream Cheese

Since I’m super late posting, I gave you some extras. And because I couldn’t choose between them.

Now for the nominees…

Go Commando…It’s Creative

Roll call! Is everyone present and accounted for? Did anyone blow up while playing with fireworks? Kiefer nearly took out a car and a neighbor’s house before he decided to leave the fireworks to the professionals.

Not Kiefer’s fireworks….

Anyways…Somersaulting Through Life bestowed upon me the Creative Chaos Award. Thank you!

Now I need to…

  • Thank the person who gave you the award. Done!
  • Take your best shot at 3 tasks listed below.
  • Nominate some other bloggers and recent followers.

What are 3 weird things you do?

  1. Pick the white seeds out of a watermelon. I heard they make you pregnant with watermelon babies.
  2. As soon as a DVD movie starts, I get up for drinks or snacks. Why I don’t get them during the previews baffles me.
  3. I usually only hiccup twice.

Why do you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask, “What? No coffee?”

I don’t drink coffee. So I’ve never said that. But if a glass is half full of something yummy, like a milkshake, I may ask, “Who the hell drank half of my milkshake?”

You find yourself in a desolate place when the car breaks down. You have no phone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It’s 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your underpants and why?

What makes you think I wear underpants?

I’m passing the award along to a couple recent followers as well as some bloggers who I think will have interesting answers to these questions, not just the underpants one. Annnnnd…I probably just scared off my recent followers…. 

Favorite Comment From Last Post: “The key to get crazy people to stop talking is to be even crazier than they are. So she says she threatened her boyfriend with a butcher knife? You say that you killed the last guy who cheated on you with a cheese grater. Then enjoy your relaxing massage in stunned silence.”—KaysFairyTale
