It's Award Time People! (Just play along - it'll be over soon.)

Recently FIERCE surprised me with this lovely Awesome Blogger Award.

I got an award! Can you believe that? I barely lifted a finger and I was awarded for it! (Actually I barely lifted two fingers - as I am a gifted hunt and pecker... what's up with you people who use, like, ten? pffft. waste of energy. me and my two fingers can get an entire post up in less than a week.) Yes, I was presented this wonderful little award for doing - not much.

Don't you love those awards which require little or no work of the recipient? Me, too. No Q & A. No thoughtful reflection. No neck/chopping block action. Well, come to find out...

This award is not one of those.

Nope. Winners of the Awesome Blogger Award have to get up in front of the class and explain a few things. They have to tell their secrets and then name seven other bloggers whom they feel are Awesome Blogger Award worthy, too. (like I'm suddenly an expert?... the hell?...)

Well, I'm going to play along here because FIERCE has obviously placed a great amount of weighty responsibility on my blog shoulders and I don't wanna look like I'm buckling under the load. But know that I am seriously fidgeting behind this podium and that soon you will probably be fidgeting behind it, too. Now with no further ado -

Thank you so much, Fierce!
(for making me get off my ass. Mark tried and couldn't do it with a crane.)

Here are seven things about me that my wonderful readers may be dying or not dying to know:

1. My man is a National Geographic Explorer. IKR? I am a National Enquirer Explorer. He's tan and weathered and I'm fluffed and feathered. We really make no sense, but we totally rock the casbah!

2. My imagination is Vi-VID! and I always remember my dreams in great detail. Not only do I not watch scary movies because I am a chicken, I even hide in the kitchen from their previews on tv. All I need is the general idea of a psycho plot and what my head'll come up with would give Rob Z or Quentin T nightmares. It is ssso scary, living with my brain.

3. I brag. Oh wait. You knew that. But I only do it on my computer. Face to face I am a reasonably self-loathing person (disguised as a social butterfly, just like the next guy.)

4. I get girl crushes on lesbians that look like hot guys. I know - go figure.

5. I really miss my mom and my dad and my dog. They all got old and died. I never broke down about it (which really worries/frightens/makes flinch those closest to me) but I wish they were all still here.

6. I struggle to not hate hate-mongers. (Fox News raises my blood pressure and makes me want to see dead people! - but only a specific few. OK, not really dead. Just afflicted with some serious tummy aches. I guess some of you may already know that about me. Sorry for the violent outburst.)

7. My favorite CD in the history of Earth is Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Old stuff I know, but hey - that's me. That's how I roll. So imagine my surprise when I became stupendously addicted to... you're not gonna believe this...
SHe. Daisy. Yep, but only their rendition of Jingle Bells. Yeah, Jingle Bells. Trust me, this one's got me stumped, too. For some reason, that song can just take over my entire body and make me happy to my toes. Another mystery to me. (The song should so totally be used in anger management therapy.)

Still there? Thank God ... we all survived it. I apologize if #6 creeped you out or made you think I was goin' all rogue on ya.

OK, so now I will pass this AWESOME BLOGGER AWARD to the following newly discovered (by me - which is not to say that they are new - just new to me... mmmkay?) bloggers.

Awardees, here are the rules you must follow (a small price to pay for such an award!)

1. Thank the presenter of your award.

2. Copy the award.

3. Post it in your blog.

4. Tell us 7 things that your readers don’t know about you.

5. Link 7 new bloggers.

6. Notify winners of the award with a comment on their blog.

7. Keep being an awesome blogger!

AND THE WINNERS ARE... (when I call your name, please stand, take a bow and give us a little parade wave) ***drumroll please***:

1. Always a Drunk, Never a Bride...
2. Only One Way Down
3. Everyone is Entitled to My Opinion
4. Beauty School Dropout
5. Asleep Under My Desk
6. Low-Water Mark
7. A Bad Case of the Dates

Congrats guys! You're great! Now review the rules again, pass this award and write on...


Mark Price said...

How many times do I have to say it?
Fox News reports, we decide! Why can't you just stop fighting it? The truth? you can't handle the truth! (Jack Nicholson) You know this is a really good post.REALLY! The fact that I wasn't nominated for the award makes it even extra work to do! You are an awesome blogger, and totally deserve this award! HUGGS!

f8hasit said...

Congrats on your award!
The best thing about passing these awards around is we get to know things about you that we didn't know prior...
Good stuff.

Cynica Sarcastamos said...

MARK - this is me totally ignoring your FOX crap (BTW, have you ordered your mavericky little friend's roguey new 'book' yet? Cause I can see Russia from this blog...)

What the HELL was I thinking? Oh, I know. That YOU ALREADY HAD THIS AWARD! Dude, you are my favoritest blogger in all the land (sick minds think alike) so the fact that I did not pass this award to you FIRST is just another indicator that Alzheimer's is indeed contagious and I'm gettin' it from my cat.

I'm new at award protocol so if you can provide me with the rules on picking qualified recipients, kindly hand it over, wouldja?

Give me a sec to figure out how to right this major wrong, Precious. I'll get back to you - so prepare thyself to get off thy lazy bum and LABOUR.

F8HASIT - Thanks so much! Yeah, revealing the weirdness was a bit uncomfy at first, then I noticed I was kind of starting to like it. Yikes. /*o*\
Thanks again, Nancy!


first time visitor - congrats on your big award and i never want them to be over b/c then i get to find great new blogs, like this one

i especially liked this one

I get girl crushes on lesbians that look like hot guys. I know - go figure.

who wasn't a little hot for courteney cox in the bruce springsteen video? i know she's not a lesbian but she kind of looked a little butchy


btw, you also have a lot of blogs with great names but no content :( but great names

M said...

Thanks for the accolades! And reading, of course :).

Danica Dragonfly said...

You totally deserve it!

Your blog is a hoot ... I look for your posts whenever I log in.

Your life sounds kinda kewl...

Spot said...

I love learning new things about people! Especially when they give us insight into their blogs/comments/what have you. I also love the interplay between you and Mark. That constantly cracks me up. And as you know, I have some pretty violent thoughts too so woo hoo!


Anonymous said...

*huge round of applause*
You made it! You actually finished! I'm so proud of you, you see, you can make it if you try.
Love your seven random things too.

JMG said...


I'm Jared, and I run A Bad Case of the Dates. Thanks for the award and for reading my site! You rock!

Seven things my readers don't know about me:

1. I spend my time thinking of new ways to bother ferrets.

2. I just purchased a tenth swimming pool for the A Bad Case of the Dates Mansion.

3. My last act before writing this comment was making a sketch for a friend's birthday present.

4. A bowl of shredded wheat sits upon my desk. What is it doing there?

5. I like tea.

6. I like road trips.

7. I use the word "swanky" a lot.

As for blogs I like, I'd recommend Bart Cilfone's, some of the older stuff at, Max Cannon's, and Tom Tomorrow's

Thanks again for the shout out. I really appreciate you (and your readers) checking out the site!

Kathryn said...

Congrats on your award, sweetie! And congrats to the recipients as well! Isn't it lovely, baring your soul to the entire world here in blogville? Can Oprah be far behind? (I think not.)

I missed seeing you do the "queenly wave" it again, okay? My hidden video camera wasn't fully charged.

Cynica Sarcastamos said...

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB - Thank you! You're right - Courtney was a little hottie in that video.
I'm glad you came by for a visit.
SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB - ikr? I'm like all names and no substance. What can I say? (I'm sure I'll think of something...)

M - Don't mention it, I'm enjoying it! It's why we're here, right? :)

DANICA - thank you! Right back atcha, GF. I always look forward to your posts, too. For some people, there just never seems to be a dull moment!

SPOT - I love to learn those little known facts about others, too. It's rare that I'm not surprised by something they reveal. Yes, Mark should write for a sit-com (as many of you here could!) Thanks Spot! (FYI I'm reading Just After Sunset now)

FIERCE - thankyouthankyouthankyou. Oh, you are so encouraging! Just what I needed. And did I say "Thank You!" ?

JMG - Hey Jared... no - YOU rock.
Your stuff is off the hook. (Brilliant idea, too. I always wanted to be a fly on that daters' wall!)

KATHRYN - Thank you! OK, I'm doing the queen wave just for you.
((*.*)) /
Yeah, the whole 'tell us a little about yourself' thing was creepy at first but then I started gettin' into it. Which is even creepier. Welcome back!

Arizona Mamma said...

It's my first time here! So fun that I found you on an award post where you had to reveal new things. You are so not alone with the Dark Side of the Moon. But Wish You Were Here is pretty awesome too! Glad I stumbled across your blog!

Cynica Sarcastamos said...

ARIZONA MAMMA - Thank you! I'm glad you stopped by. I'll check out your blog, too. It's always way cool to see new faces in the room!

LiLu said...

Congrats! That's a damn fine award!

Margo said...

just the music from The Exorcist keeps me awake for days. I've never even seen the movie, and only could read bits and pieces of the book.

Cynica Sarcastamos said...

LILU - Thank you! I'm pretty proud of the little guy. I think I need a bumper sticker.

MARGO - OH - I know. Do not even go there, GF. That movie traumatized me for life. My advice to you would be to never watch it and if you ever see a copy of that book anywhere on your block, just move.

Eyvi Sprite said...

Ok! I made it! Finally! I was waylaid by all the fake blogs (with really cool names) at the door. Trust me, it doesn't take much. But I'm here now. Whew!

Thank you so much, I am honoured by you nomination. Now I'll go write 7 things...grumble, grumble.

Anonymous said...

Congrats on the award. I was reading through some of you posts. you so deserve it!

Dark Side of the Moon is an awesome CD!

Cynica Sarcastamos said...

Eyvi- I know, right? I'll think of something to say... give me a year or so.
You are most welcome.

Christiejolu - thank you! I'm glad you came by. (I love your McDonald's Joker thang.)

Organic Meatbag said...

Pink Floyd fan? you are awesome...congrats on your award!!


this is an old post but you recently left a comment on one of my more recent posts, like last week, and when i went to email you about your comment, it was NO REPLY EMAIL! i was devastated, so i am here to visit and comment on your post and i think it's the same one from before and you've got like 4 blogs with REALLY GREAT NAMES but nothing on them. and your dog is adorable. adorable. and that's all i've got.
