ROFL, sistah!

I don't often mention awards (not that I'm swimming in them or anything) but sometimes it feels a little... you know. Unseemly. Wicked cool!

But I got two look at me, kicking some major bahookie last week that were worth mentioning for a couple reasons. I mean, other than showing off.

The first comes from the awesome Susan, one of my first blog buddies evah (she taught me how to load a picture - all the way from Australia. If you can do that, well, then, you can do anything.

And she does. She's got land, and goats and cats and dogs and quilts and yarn and always has guests coming over and it just sounds like fun is happening there all the time. Like the kind of mom you wish you were, but you are way too anal and uptight mean and bitchy to be.

I always leave with a smile, or inspired. And she gave me this, apparently because I have an Attitude problem.

I am to nominate five other Bloggers and will get around to that soon. But maybe not, because if there's anything more uncomfortable than receiving an award it's the Sophie's choosing of a recipient to whom to pass it along, if you know what I mean. I am not giving up any of you guys to the Nazi soldier at the train. NOOOO! Wait. OK, now I have to go lie down to get over those images. Back in a bit. Possibly tranquilized. God I HATE that movie. WHICH after all, would you choose? I just don't need all that going on in my head right now. There's already enough nasty crap in there, frankly.

OK. Where were we? Ah, yes... I was bragging.

I got this award, too, after being nominated by the very funny Even though he is a guy! And a British one! Mo "Mad Dog" Stoneskin.

The ROFL's are awarded each month by Chicky Chicky Baby and Oh, the Joys, who are both a lot of fun to read on their own, even when they're not introducing you to so many other funny bloggers, which they do every month. The rules and other recipients are posted here. Go check them out for some fun reading.

And thanks, Mad Dog and Susan!

And happy birthday, Kim!


I'm sure the folks over at humor-blogs don't use so very many words when they win awards.

Well congratulations on your well deserved awards!

I just asked my son last night, "What does ROFL mean?" He looked pretty horrified that I would ask him that which immediately made me nervous about what he was about to tell me. He asked me all kinds of questions like, "Who said this to you?" (A little role reversal wouldn't ya say.) After he was sastified that I had just heard it on a TV commercial and was curious, he broke the code for me! I must be getting old.

Congrats on your awards! You are so fancy.

Manic Mommy said...

I had to write an Psych paper on Sophie's Choice. I can't even imagine watching it again now that I have kids.

Oh, and congratulations!!

You're going to need to add a mantle to your blog so you can display them.

Rose Red said...

Yes, either a mantle for display or a pool room (as in "that's going straight to the pool room!") (oh, and if you haven't seen The Castle, you really should!)

Congratulations and thanks for reminding me about Kim's birthday!

I READ the BOOK Sophie's Choice. Because apparently, the movie wasn't torure enough.
