Catch-Up / Catch-All

FIRST
I won I won I won!!! an award.
Go say hello to the fabulous ladies over at Nowhere IL. You'll be so glad you did because they are fabulous! Also, they are awesome because they keep reading me even though I talk a lot about boys.
They awarded me the Arte Y Pico award which roughly translates into "You occassionally write things that make me giggle" or something like that.





hmmm, I just read that it actually translates to: "over the top"
Touche ladies. Touche.

The fine print- "This award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and their talents, and for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium. When you receive this award it is considered a “special honor”. Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to 5 others. What a wonderful way to show some love and appreciation to your fellow bloggers! The rules for passing this honor on are: Pick 5 blogs that you would like to award this honor to. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award from Arte Y Pico."


With that, I officially bestow the award of "Arte Y Pico" to:
Deb on the Rocks whose twisted sense of humor seems to flow quite well with mine.
Redneck Mommy who has allowed me to laugh and cry with her for a long time now.
Swistle who is the greatest compulsive/crazy Momma I've ever read.
My Little Monkey (MyHope) who is Sister and Friend and Soulmate all in one gorgeous package.
Blade's Edge (Ex) who can still make me shoot coffee out my nose from laughing

*** Special Note to MyHope and Ex, please don't link back to me because if ExMom or the twit sister-in-law find me someone's head is going to explode and that would be messy. Tell them aliens gave you the award... or something.





SECOND
I got a new Buddha

He makes me very happy. A great big thank you to my non-blogging friend Marge for taking me Buddha shopping. Yes, there are still people who don't blog. They also have scales and webbed feet.

THIRD
Pay-It-Forward Contest (and my winning goodies) coming tomorrow!

Hee! An over-the-top award!

I love your new Buddha.

What do you mean, some people don't blog? I understand all those words individually, but not together.

Redneck Mommy said...

Aw, blushing. I love awards. Heh. Thanks for thinking of me.

And thanks for the bling.

But I really want that Buddha. Totally awesome.

Renaissance Woman said...

Congrats on the new Buddha! I think everything is going to be better in the world now.

Deb on the Rocks said...

Thank you Sassy! You are the best! AND your new Buddha is even better than that one you gave to the world. What a nice way to smooth the Monday blahs away. Merci, SP.
