Shit You Should Know

Somebody Is About To Get Smited!

If this isn’t your first visit to my blog, you know I have no problem sharing information about myself. To be honest, I rather enjoy it. Maybe I’m a borderline narcissist or maybe I’m just true to my Leo nature. Either way this post is brought to you today because someone out there wants to feed my ego.
Thanks to Debbie at No Filter Mom for giving me another opportunity to gloat endlessly about how awesome I am be honored with the Versatile Blogger Award.

Now like most awards, this one comes with a set of rules that I am required by law to follow or else the blog gods will smite me. I’ve never been smited but it doesn’t sound pleasant. I imagine the blog gods to sit in front of a computer screen similar to Dr. Claw, the bad guy from the old Inspector Gadget cartoons.
Piss them off and they press their big red “smite” buttons like this one.
Here are the blog commandments of the Versatile Blogger award.

1.) Thank the person who gave you the award. (Done! See above.)

2.) Share 7 things about yourself. (Three cheers for narcissism!)

3.) Pass the award on to 10 unsuspecting victims other versatile bloggers and mock them let them know you did.

Here's some stuff about me.  I know you can't wait.  That's why you are here.
1.) My most favorite soda is Diet Dr. Pepper. It is by far the best tasting diet soda there is on the market in my opinion and my opinion is all that matters (to me anyway).

2.) I like the Counting Crows very much. I have all of their albums. Adam Duritz is an amazing poet.
Goofy looking? Yes but extremely talented. I have a thing for poetry. Just ask my husband. He got me hook, line, and sinker!

3.) I love that my children are in scouting. I had some of my best childhood memories while in girl Scouts and I enjoy sharing my stories with my kids.

little ol' to love that sofa behind me
I hope that they will have fond memories as well. By the way, the official cookie count as of today is 459. She’s almost to her goal of 600 boxes. (Technically, this one is only sort of about me.)

4.) I have zero talent (or patience) when it comes to making things. I’m so envious of people who can do things like make jewelry or scrapbook or draw. My “creations” look like a kindergartener made it. Besides, people don’t appreciate painted noodles glued to paper like they used to. Martha Stewart I am not.

5.) My boy child is a lot like me. He’s creative, silly and sometimes caring to a fault. He likes to read and when he talks about something that excites him his eyes light up. He has so much enthusiasm you can’t help but get sucked into his story. (I guess this one is isn’t really about me either. But, you will take what I give you and you will like it!)

6.) I still play the Sims from time to time. How old am I??? I enjoy watching my husband play games like Elder Scrolls on the Xbox but I lack the hand coordination to operate the controller. The Wii is more my speed and even that is pushing it.

7.) I don’t like making lists that end in an odd number. It bugs me.

Finally, I am supposed to pass this along to 10 more people. Well, that’s not going to happen. I know…smite me, oh mighty smiter!
There have been many awards going around lately and I know many of the people I follow have already received this award. So for the sake of not duplicating, I will give it to 2 bloggers and I have decided to pull a Doug and get cheesy with it. So here is the award I’ll be giving out.
It’s the Quintessential Versatile Blogger Award. I would like to give this award to Alysha at Supermom and Rancher Mom at The Taylor Family Ranch. Enjoy, ladies.

On a closing note, the time for my husband’s leave is coming up fast. So if you don’t hear from me in a few weeks, I’ve haven’t really been smited. I’m probably just busy doing…things…yes, that's it…things.


  1. Uh oh, I'm an Aquarius. Doesn't that makes us mortal enemies or something? Well, at least we agree on the Counting Crows. Great lyrics. I could have done without that "Yellow Taxi" song, or whatever it's called, though. It always sounds like he's saying "They tore down paradise and put up a fucking lot." It kills me how they play that over the P.A in department stores. It's like, "He's talking about you, ya jackasses." I do love that "Einstein on the Beach" song, of course. Okay, I think I've exceeded my quota on quotation marks for one day.

  2. Actually, Leo is a fire sign and Aquarius is a air sign. Fire and air are normally compatable. However, they usually aren't listed as recomended compatability. Fire signs are not compatable with water or earth signs. Ironically, both of my children and my husband are water signs (cancer and scorpio). What can I say? I like to walk on the wild side.
    I'm not a fan of the taxi song either. I thought he was saying "fucking" too the first time I heard it on the radio. My favorites are "Anna Begins", "Another Horsedreamer's Blues", "Colorblind" and "I'm Not Sleeping". The worst song in my opinion is that shit they did for Shrek. I think it is called "Accidentally in Love".

  3. I don't believe that Diet Dr. Pepper tastes like regular Dr. Pepper.

    And that sofa is pretty awesome. I would put it in my library. If I had a library.

  4. @Doug I don't think they taste they same either but like I said, it's the best tasting diet soda there is.
    I think my parents donated that sofa to Goodwill back in the late 90s. It's probably in some crack house. Good luck finding it.

  5. Diet Dr Pepper tastes remarkably like Dr Pepper until you swallow it. Then it tastes like diet soda. Better than Diet Coke. It tastes like a diet soda from the second you put it in your mouth. *Shakes head* Why do people drink that stuff?

    Congratulations to your daughter for her amazing girl scout cookie selling ability. She'd probably make a really good car sales person.

    PS. Love the Bruce Almighty bit. Absolutely fabulous.

  6. Where can I get me one of those 'smite' buttons. I know a few people that can use a goos smiting.

  7. I always avoid the Girl Scouts when they stand outside Wal-Mart. Then I feel guilty about it.

    One day I was in a really crappy moood (because I was at Wal-Mart) and a cute little girl asked if I wanted to donate to something. I snarled back, "Do you want to donate to my 'Pay the Rent' fund?" She said, "OK. How much do you need?"

    I ended up giving her five bucks.

  8. @Chanel Diet Coke is horrible! I will drink it if there is nothing else available but I prefer Diet Dr. Pepper or even diet rootbeer.
    @Johann You better get in touch with Dr. Claw on that one.
    @Doug My daughter did the Wal-mart thing last weekend and she's scheduled to do two more this weekend. She gets pissed when people ignore her. She told me, "That's rude, Mom. I'm just a kid and I have better manners than a lot of these grown ups." She's right too. You probably would have made my baby girl cry. Then, I would have turned into Mama Bear and mauled you. It would have been ugly. So in the future, at least say "No thanks." ;)

  9. Hey, it's your blog, it's all about you, so narc on!! Narcissism, that is, or narcotics, whatever floats your boat! hehehe

  10. I think you're wrong about not knowing how to make things...what, writing great posts doesn't count as making things? I think it does. Have fun, um, doing, um...things. ;)

  11. I would say you are a creative person. You write and create your blogs with the pics and all!!!

    Enjoy the time with your husband and family. Looking forward to reading all about it later!


We have all got opinions. What are yours?
