The Versatile Blogger Award

To my  surprise, I was given another blogging award, this time by Marsha A. Moore. Thanks for thinking of me! I feel special (and I don’t have to worry about what to blog about this morning!!).

Now, here are the rules:

1. Thank those who loved me enough to bestow this gift.
2. Share seven things about myself.
3. Bestow this honor onto 15 newly discovered or followed bloggers–in no particular order–who are fantastic in some way.
4. Drop by and let my fifteen new friends know I love them.
Sooooo….seven things about myself. Where do I begin?? (you know how much I love talking about myself!)
1. I talk to my animals like they can understand me and will talk back…if they ever did, I’m afraid I’d have a heart attack.
2. When I was 10 years old, my brother broke the middle finger of my left hand. Yes, my middle finger, which meant that I wore a splint that looked like I was flipping the bird to everyone. It was awesome.
3. My mom says I used to know the words to all the songs on the radio (as well as most of the commercials) when I was about 3. It annoyed them to no end.
4. I hate…hate…HATE…to dust. I have dust bunnies the size of boulders under my bed.
5. I can only take so much “girl talk”. I think 30 minutes is my limit. After that I’m looking for the nearest exit.
6. If I could get away with wearing sneakers or flip-flops for all events, I would. (I carry slippers with me when I’m forced to wear heels.)
7. I’m afraid I might be going through a “nesting” phase…God forbid I’m becoming domesticated! *shudder*
So now I get to pick people to share this award with. Yay! Without further ado:
Romancemama – She covers the 3 S’s of blogging: sweet, sassy, and Southern. Need I say more?
Daisy Harris – Insightful blogger with a twist of snark.
Allison Pang – Hello Kitty and bacon fanatic with lots of snark. (Not sure how she’d feel about a bacon wrapped Hello Kitty…best of both worlds?)
Tawna Fenske – Hilarious blogger…please, please check her out!
KAK – Constantly cracks me up with her comments.
Stacy McKitrick – Always happy to share embarrassing moments with me (she never leaves me hanging by myself!)
Lynn Rush – Sweet lady with a regimented blog (Throwback Thursdays are my favorite!)
Tammy Gallant – Busy lady with a blog that asks those important questions…like, what would you Karaoke to?
Naked Heroes – Yes, I said NAKED HEROES…’nuff said!
Angela Addams – Sweet lady who lets me rant at/with her!
Stacey Espino – Spicy bloggess…seriously spicy!
Jeffe Kennedy – I’m new to her blog, but she takes wonderful pictures of her desert home (from a soggy south Louisiana perspective, they’re awesome!)
Jillian Chantal – Adding her to my blog now that I know she has one, but I already know she’s an awesome lady!
Jus Accardo – She’s fabu with a lazy…I mean, a sleepy dog who provides me endless amusement.
Eden Glenn – She has wonderful Fantasy Man Mondays…which is a great way to start the week, you know? Between her fantasy guys on Monday and my fantasy guys on Friday. Like a sandwich…
So, that’s all 15 of the blogs I follow. I hope you’ll give them all a look-see to find out for yourself how awesome they are! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to look for this week’s Fantasy Man. *sigh* My work is never done!

Dogs Love Me, or Do They?

Well, maybe not all dogs. I seem to remember a Doberman Pincer when I was about 10 who scared the ever lovin’ crap out of me. We lived just a block from a convenience store and my mom told me to walk myself up to the store to get a gallon of milk. It was my very first time allowed to go to the store by myself. I only ever walked to school and home. There was no wandering the neighborhood or anything, so you can imagine how proud and happy I was. I was finally growing up!

So I’m sauntering down the street. Okay, it was more like skipping and muttering “One gallon of milk, one gallon of milk” the entire way. The street curved so there was a blind spot ahead. I didn’t pay any attention. But when I came around that curve, there was a huge Doberman sitting on the edge of its property. It saw me and barked. I saw it and stopped dead in my tracks. I went cold because that sucker had huge teeth and its head was at the same height as my throat. It stood and barked again. I took a step back, all thoughts of milk, being a grown-up, and anything else I might’ve been thinking of fading away.

It took a step forward and I screamed, “MOOOOOOOOOOOOM!” and took off running. The dog kind of yiped and ran back to its yard. I don’t know if it was scared by my lung capacity, my graceless running, or the thought that my mom – who was in our house a block away – might’ve heard her daughter’s cry for help and come to handle up on it. I ran the entire way home, waiting to feel that dog’s teeth in my leg, butt, head, whatever. Images of my mother finding me torn to shreds played through my head. I made it home, panting, sweating, and crying like…well, like a little girl. My mom, who was making pancakes and needed that milk, turned around and said, “Where’s the milk?”

I hated dogs after that. I wouldn’t play with them, didn’t trust them, and thought they were goofy. Then, I got a dog and now I’m a convert. Dogs love me. It’s really embarrassing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come home with a pit bull in my yard trying to get in my house because…well, I’m just that awesome apparently.

So really, it shouldn’t be any surprise when Tawna Fenske (a hilarious lady with a unique way of picking contest winners) allowed her dog to choose the winner of her What the @#$% is that? contest, her dog chose my ball. Bwahahaha. Now, if it had been a cat picking the winner, then no doubt the cat would’ve gone to my ball and peed on it. That’s just how cool I am.

What a way to start the week!
