I got a bit behind around here because, in case you all missed it, I was busy blog hopping a lot of last week. First, I jet-setted my way to the UK to visit my sweet friend (and partner in crime since she let me loose from Ron's basement) SJ at Almost there. While I was there I took a shower in On The Move.
The [Near] Death of a Salesman.
And lastly I hopped and skipped my way down to sunny Florida (while the hostess was on vacation - think there is some subliminal message to be had there), to the blog of the lovely Jess for her Saturday night rant on Finding One's Way, AND she let me swear! Ahhhh...such a relief!! =) My trip over there was...well, a bit rant-like with donkeys humping chihuahuas in Conversation with my husband...
So, with all of that winging around I am finally back home in the middle of nowhere, and severely behind on my duties of acknowledging people's acknowledgments of my
"Noooooooooooooo! Not again!" I hear you cry!
But oh yes! Yes...I've been blessed with 3 more awards.
Yes...3. And my favorite number on top of it. I'm sure that means that because I've gotten 3 awards that my blogging prowess is on the verge of making me gajillions of buckola. Please! Don't panic! I've got your back, stalkers. I'll always remember the little people that helped me to reach the goals so many strive for!! Muwahahahaha!
Ok...so these aren't in any kind of order really, other than the fact that my slight tendencies toward being OCD need to try and keep this evened out a little bit....clumps bug me!
Raising Amelie. He calls ME a nutso, and while that might be only slightly correct, it stands to reason that, in this instance, it takes one to know one. =-p
A (as I tend to refer to him because I'm lazy) is one of my staunch
So, A, while you did break the rules of your award by giving this to me...I forgive you, and I appreciate the fact that you thought of me! *thunks you upside the back of the head with the plastic sand shovel because you probably deserve it*
Bacon And Eggs gave me this blog award. (Yes Sci...I know you are out there. I can hear you "snorking"!!)
Now Sci is not just a blogging buddy, but she's an awesome internet friend. The husband him met her first via a chat room, and he was always saying "She's so funny. You need to join the chat, I think you would like her." I'm not big on chats...I've got too much on my To Do list that I always feel flooded. Since then, though, we've become friends through Facebook. She's the jelly to my peanut butter! HA! =) As a result, I have since absconded with her as my friend, leaving the husband him to cry that I stole her from him. =) *snicker*
However, even though we are friends, it's so very clear that we've never met in person because the award she gave me was the "Stylish Blogger Award". There is nothing stylish about me... I mean really, the last I checked "redneck" really hasn't ever made a big impression in the fashion world.
So...now...go visit SciFi! And tell her I said "Hi!" Because, when she's eerily quiet...everyone needs to be worried! A quiet Sci is never a good thing...it means she plotting something!
If I Had a Blog! who gave me this award (look familiar?).
Here's what he had to say about me when he cleaned off his shelf and gave me this award: "Irreverent, sassy and frankly lousy about cleaning up the sandbox, Jewell is in fact a jewell! I love her take on everything and she is a talent to be reckoned with on many levels. Intellect, humor, and photographic genius…always worth a visit."
I called bullshit on the whole "she is a talent to be reckoned with" statement. However, even I couldn't help but agree that I am worth a visit! =) If I wasn't, you all wouldn't be brainwashed enough to keep coming back, giving me awards, and asking me to wring my one operational brain cell for guest posts! =)
Of course, being caught red handed trying to pitch bullshit about the ethernet, he THEN had the gall to try and butter me up with "you are very talented...and crazy...and a little scary"! Can you believe it! I wasn't having any of it though...especially after he said I was lousy at cleaning up his sandbox when I didn't even get off the swing!
Ron is hilarious, and probably a little on the psychotic side, which, frankly, kinda says a lot about why he keeps coming back for more of me, and has been since I started this blog. Masochist!
So....thank you to all of you that have followed me on my globe trotting adventures, and who've passed on awards to me! I do appreciate it! Sincerely! Honestly! Cross my heart and all the shit.
Jewell =) xo
