I Love You....You Love Me

Brought to you exclusively by Dual Mom on
I'm a bad bad blogger buddy. I got this little beauty from Kat at 2010 Year of Miracles ummm a couple of days...ok dammit it was weeks ago. And yes dammit I'm just thanking her for it now. Dammit...sorry Kat. You know I love you. Forgive me? I'll send cookies.

This one came from Mass Hole Mommy, the queen of giveaways. I swear this woman doesn't sleep because 30 posts so far in the month of February...like what the hell woman? Do you blog in the bathroom? Thank  you, I don't think anyone has ever associated the word "sunshine" with yours truly.

Oh dear sweet fuck could it be any more perfect? Seriously? I got this little darlin' from Maggie at Mind of A Mad Woman and she is indeed a mad woman in the most awesomeness of ways.

In case you can't read the print at the bottom, it states, "Bloggers who are sick of biting their tongues and swallowing the blood". It's perfection really.

I have to copy the "rules" of the award because they made me crap my pants with laughter. Maggie copied them from someone else, who may or may not have copied them from someone else, who may or may not...oh hell you get that we're breaking every damn copyright law out there, right?

The receivers of the award (and I hesitiate to use the word winners as it is not some type of lame-arsed competition, it is merely a show of appreciation for the blogger who doesn't pretty up the harsh realities) do NOT have to pass it on! If you wish to, great! Means I get to find some new no-bullshit blogs. If not, meh, not my problem.

This award is not to be awarded for just being nasty! It is for those blunt, honest, sometimes brutal bloggers who post from passion, not spite.

I LOVE IT! Those have to be some of the smartest damn words I've read in a long time. And so true. I'm never spiteful, I do not have a spiteful bone in my body. Being spiteful is a waste of my time. Blunt, brutally honest, that I do. Do not ask me for my opinion if you don't want the truth. Seriously, you will get the truth if you ask me, "What do you think?" The truth may be ugly, it may be cut your heart out with a dull kitchen knife brutal, but the truth as I see it, it will be. I never do it out of meaness or spite, I do it because I truly believe if someone asks for my opinion, they have the right to expect and receive an honest answer and not some pussyfoot, kid glove version of the truth.

So tell me, do you temper your words? Is your blog a true reflection of who you are as a person?

And finally (really thank you for sticking with me to the end) this:

Mrs. Blogalot gave me this little gem and called me "amazingly funny". It amazes me when someone calls me funny, and no I'm not being snide or bashful when I say that. I don't see myself as a "funny" person. I'm sarcastic as hell, I freely admit that. I have a skewed outlook on life by times and I curse alot. I say the things people often think but that filter that most people have prevents them from saying it. I wrote once about the fact that I don't seem to have that filter. So thanks, Mrs. Blogalot. I truly appreciate the compliment.

Ah ah ah...don't leave me yet. I'm not finished. Sigh if you must but I seriously need to pass some of these along.

The Beautiful Blogger Award - passing this one along to:

Crystal at Autism's Bitch - Crystal has a son with Autism. Her post today made me stop and think about something that I always do, and I'm wrong in doing it. Anyone that can get me to stop and think deserves an award.

Advocate Mom at Accidental Advocate - for reminding me that there are incredibly good people in the world. She blogs about her adventures with two adopted sons. Her strength in the face of adversity is something we can all aspire to.

The Sunshine Award - I pass this one along to

Menopausal New Mom any woman that has the balls to become a first-time mom at the age of 45 deserves all the sunshine they can get. You're an inspiration woman!

Taylorville at Girly Bitz - In her post today - she wrote about a conversation her and hubby had....wherein he compared her to a piece of meat on special at the butcher. Ha - and she didn't even drop kick him for it. It's quite funny so go check her out.

Mindy Mom at Single Mom - she writes with an elegance and clarity that I aspire to.

The Other Mommy at Evil Step Mom or Domestic Goddess - for helping me to see things from the other side of the coin.

Tell It Like It Is Award - passing this one along to

Noelle at Elastic Waistbands - when this girl gets pissed off just run for cover, seriously. I wait with baited breath for the days she's riled about something because her anger makes me laugh uproariously. The fuck's start flying everywhere and I keep waiting for her to turn all Exorcist. Is it wrong of me to find humour in this? And yeah, I know you've gotten this one already Noelle, too damn bad.

Duckalicious over at Batcrap Crazy- for bringing us "Convos from The Hood" and making us all very thankful she works at an inner city school. Sorry Daf, your pain is our gain.

The effervescent Zgirl over at the The Think Tank - she may have this one already too. I'd be very surprised if she doesn't. Zgirl would be the one I'd want at my back if I were ever in a brawl with a bunch of biker chicks (hey...it could happen).

My wine drinking sista over at Vinomom - This girl is real and not afraid to admit she's only human. I love her for it!

Shit I'm tired now. I'm supposed to tell you stuff and make lists and shit but guess what....I'm a rebel without a cause so I'm not gonna do it. Plus I'm tired. Plus I seriously think I may have taxed your patience with this uber long post.

Yay! Thanks so much for the award. lol. I used to be guilty of this, too. It's taken autism to teach me this lesson, so I hope to inspire others without them having to go through what I live with day in and day out. :)

Can't wait to read the other blogs you listed. :)

Congrats on getting so much blog love. It's welel deserved.

You are so awesome! Thank you very much. I think Convos From The Hood is my most favorite regular post topic I do. I panicked a bit yesterday when I realized that I would be off this summer with my girlie and wouldn't have weekly Convos to post. Not many will stick around for mommy dribble, yanno? So, I think I'm going to have to stock up these last three months of school so I have something to enterain the masses with over the summer months. My sister and I always have good convos but to be funny you'd probably need some back ground info...that doesn't make for a funny post.

Enough rambling...sorry. I'm watching my sister's 2 year old today and between her and my 17 mo old I've already hit the liquor cabinet. No worries though - I shared. They are both napping now.

I KID I KID! I didn't share the good juice with the kids but they are napping and I think I will do the same. So imma gonna step away from the comment box now. Geeze....

Dual Mom, you can't be everywhere, all day long, there's life to deal with, not just blogging. You're a great blogger, you deserve the awards.

DM - Where did Noelle's blog go? I try to click the link from my Dashboard and get an error message. I try to click the link from you post and get an error message? Any ideas? I'm hoping her anonymous commenter from yesterday didn't cause her to stop blogging. I know she was there yesterday and earlier this morning, but I can't find her.

Don't you go disappearing on me too! PLEASE don't disappear. I can't take it when my favorite blogs go away.

Wow-this is a lot of awards! You really are loved!
I should get an award for being the worst blog award acceptor, because I always forget to acknowledge awards. I don't mean to be a snob..it just seems to come naturally.

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
