Yea! More Awards!!! Yea!!

Posted: February 11, 2010 in Awards


Okay.. so I admit I get more then a little excited when I get an award. Especially now since I haven’t been posting as much as I used to.

But on a serious note, there are some people that I’ve gotten to know through my blog or their blog that I actually consider friends. It may sound weird or like I’m on the road to being an old cat lady but what can I say, it is what it is.

One of those people, is a woman named Shelli who has a great blog called SHAKING THE TREE.

Shelli has the same quirky sense of humor that I love and writes like she’s talking to her best friend. She also lives near me .. so who knows, she may be the first blogging buddy that I get to meet in person!

Maybe after all the snow clears.

Anyway.. Shelli was gracious enough to pass the following award to me:

I take this to be the “When Life Gives You Lemons…” award and if anyone should have a sour puss, you’d think it would be me but yknow.. I just go with the flow and manage the damage so I’ll take that nice tall glass of lemonade, thank you!

So in passing it along, I thought it be appropriate to award this to my blogger buds that also have that big glass of lemonade to clink good cheers with:

GARY at World Of Gary.

Anyone who’s ass can erupt like Mount Vesuvius all over his sister’s kitchen not only deserves this award but really, should be the poster child for it.

JEN at Snark Pool.

Jen up and left everything and everyone she knew to move to a foreign country for love. And now she’s a momma to the most adorable-ist kitten (next to mine).. getting ready to have a baby REAL ASS SOON.. and has the most fabulous living room. Now.. if having a fabulous living room in a foreign country is NOT making lemonade, then psst! You tell me what is!!

MARK at The Nightmare Screenplay

Mark has a lot on his plate and honestly, if  I was him I don’t know how my head would wrap it self around what he has to deal with. But there is never a time when I read his blog that I don’t laugh hysterically or think WHY THE HELL DIDNT I WRITE ABOUT THAT!!! And that, my friends, is a huge compliment!! LOL!!

Shelli also fed into my whore-y award-iness by giving me the following:

And this award I am passing along to everyone on my blogroll. If you’re listed then I think you’re one of the best because I read you all the time. If I read you all the time and you are NOT on my blogroll then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know.. because I forget to update it and I know that there are blogs listed that are no longer in existence and it just sucks that I haven’t kept up with it.

    AWWW! Thank you Leese! You’re the best, really, I’m serious. Love you bunches!

  2. Shelli says:

    Meeting in person would be awesome! Like I said, giggling at the Amish is a Lancaster County past-time. ;-) (no offense to any Amish reading this blog! *snicker*)

    You most definitely deserved these awards! :-)

    (slight correction, if you don’t mind: it’s Shaking the Tree, not Shake ;-) )

  3. Leese says:

    Hey Shelli …

    Not sure why I typed SHAKE instead of SHAKING … could be because I was watching Private Getaway at the time and they were using that line alot .. or I was lazy .. OR I just fucked up. It happens!! LOL!! But I will change it.

    You know, I may giggle at the Amish but sometimes I think they all have the right idea!!

    In fact, my cousin and her family are Amish .. or Mennonite.. or whatever they are when you become one after the fact!!

    They live in Lancaster and all work at the Herr’s factory.

    Hate to smell their laundry at the end of the day!! LOL

  4. Shelli says:

    Amish and Mennonite are close, but completely different. I’m not sure you can become Amish, I think you have to be born into it. I think. I’m not 100% sure. Never heard of anyone wanting that lifestyle. O_o

    And I wouldn’t say they have the right idea about alot of things. Like how women are there only to work and not have opinions and have to defer to their man for everything. Mennonites are similar, but the women are allowed to work outside the home. Note, I said “allowed”. So yeah, your cousins are probably Mennonite.

    Oh, working at Herr’s would drive me insane! I have a potato chip problem. Especially Herr’s potato chips. I try not to keep them in the house, because I’d eat them till I was sick. Which reminds me, there’s a bag on the kitchen table that’s looking a bit lonely.

    Ok, what is it with you and causing me to crave certain foods?! LOL I went on a Tastykake hunt on Saturday. I bought the lemon pie and the chocolate lover’s pie. And yes, both are gone now. ;-)
