You Make Loving Fun

Brought to you exclusively by Dual Mom on
When I mentioned in my Cougar post that I really like days that are all about ME, I wasn't pulling your jockstrap. I have a severe case of middle child syndrome. I was the third girl born to my poor parents and all they wanted was a boy.  They constantly dressed me in blue. That's right, my mother would dress my older sister (who was 2 years my senior) and I in the same outfits, older sister got the pink I got the blue. No, no subliminal shit going on there. I think I was 14 before I was actually owned an item of pink clothing. Is it any wonder I'm what one would call a total girly girl and that I hate the color blue (even though it really does look great on me)?

Anysexualidentitycrisis, without further ado I present some awards bestowed upon l'il ole me.

Tink gave me this award. He's a new reader and I haven't had a chance to check him out yet but in giving me the award he said:  "Her post about Cougars is EPIC (LOVES IT), and she brings me back to a childhood of shared custody, lol. " This guy is YOUNG (21 according to his profile) and I'm sure it's the cougar in me that has me so tickled that he LOVES me. Tickled pink....totally (rather than being tickled blue which is what my parents would have preferred).

Then I got the above from Surferwife . She also made reference to the Cougar post.  Another new reader that I'll be checking out ASAP. Thanks girl! Be sure to go check her out.

Lee over at Headaches, Hotflashes & Hormones. What can I say about Lee? She really is the best, always leaves great comments and her blog is a great read. She is a darlin' sweetheart. Thanks Lee!

Zgirl over at the Think Tank gave this out to all her lip smakers (as she calls her commentors). As I've said before Zgirl, you are fanfuckintabulous, and you KNOW it! In case you haven't heard by now, Zgirl and I have a little bit of competitive edge and we're throwin down in the New Year.

Bloggy love...I can't think of a better way to start my week. There are rules with the first award that my dementia prevents me from following. Please don't rat on me. I'm supposed to pass it along to 10 of my readers, but ALL of my readers have it. Should I pass it along anyway? Seriously, I don't know.

I totally missed my 50th post celebration (my last post was the 50th). It's really too bad because I was going to have a party for y'all and serve sangria in a shoe.

I have two days of work this week, than I am off for 10 DAYS people. WOOT WOOT. You gotta love working in education. I have lots of ideas for posts, some which are laugh out loud happy, some which will probably have me drinking for days after I write them (like I need an excuse). I'm looking forward to putting the ideas to paper (keyboard..whateva). My plans for the time off include giving my house a severe enema, writing lots, eating, drinking and cuddling with my little girl on the couch. She's the only one of the three kids that likes me anymore.

So the holidays are fast approaching. I am now the Queen of Christmas because I just made ice cubes in the shape of Christmas trees, beeeotches. My presents are not wrapped but I have festive ice cubes. Tell me what you're really looking forward to.

OMG, "the only one who likes me anymore", I don't even have a one after this weekend. Have a drink, or two for me please, and make them strong. Love the blogger awards...and CRAP! as always, I read someone else and find out that I do something wrong. I missed my 50th. It is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

I have gotten a few awards and only acknowledged one. I suck as a blogger friend sometimes.

I'm looking forward to Xmas day, when my son and I will open xmas presents in the morning together, then in the afternoon, 8 of my closest friends will be coming over for dinner and drinks and a long night of laughing and talking and playing games and just being together. :)

You deserve all the awards!! Frankly, I am thinking that school should be 365 days a year, but what do I know!

I'm tipping my shoe to the 10 days off! Geez....the next two days can not pass quickly enough!

I will say though I am secretly thrilled the students on my case load are all absent today. Can you believe the luck?!

I think I'd like to tell you to shove those Christmas tree ice cubes....but I won't cuz I don't want to seem too scroogish.

I love you, and I would drink Sangria with you all day, but seriously, I am not drinking from a shoe.

NOPE! No fungus mouth, H1N1, ecoli, whateverthehellcameoffsomenastyfeet disease here! No way, no day!

I'm with Daff, Christmas tree ice cubes? WTF? Aren't you just Merry Miss Christmas Carol?

Tink was definitely onto something when he gave you your award. I think this is going to be a heck of a good time following you!

I've decided to make up an "I'm scared of you but not necessarily in a bad way" award, just so I can give it to you.

Do penis ice cubes count as being festive?
