I’m Not Worthy, I’m Not Worthy

  • June 25, 2009

Look what my long lost other twin Penne at Little Girl Big Glasses gave me! Not only were Penne and I separated at birth, she shares my love of seventies music, eighties fashions, and liquor.

Unlike Penne, who is a bona fide published poet (Highlights magazine, April 1973), my written words haven’t shown up anywhere except on this blog. I sent a few entries to Readers Digest Magazine when I was a young girl and they did not see fit to publish my literary masterpieces. Fuckers. Thank God for ’cause I can self-publish my written words any old time I want (ha, loophole)!

I’m not even sure how I found Penne’s blog but I do know if I spent less time trolling the blogosphere looking for hilarious and entertaining blogs I’d have more time to write clever and engaging posts for my own. Pfft, details. And even though I blog about deep shit like my fake French manicure, crack dip, and my Jerry Springerish, white trash, Hatfield and McCoy-caliber feud with my neighbors, I somehow entertain Penne enough to keep her coming back. And she likes my Flashback Friday so much she’s thinking about doing it on her blog. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, I always say. In fact, I think all bloggers should do a Flashback Friday post so let’s see if we can get this idea to sweep the blogosphere!

Anyway, I think this post of Penne’s is the one that reeled me in and made me realize I had to follow this brilliant writer. Plus, I will never ever not think of Penne on every single Thanksgiving from now until the day I die (and Trish, substitute your regular relish tray assignment for rolls). Shortly after I started reading Penne’s blog covertly, I hit the follow button and made my presence known by leaving comments on her blog ’cause that’s how you make friends in blogger land.

Now that I’ve been bestowed with such a high honor, it’s my responsibility to pass this award on to other blogs I love. Therefore, I’d like to pay the love forward by giving the following blogs their virtual kudos:

That’s so Missy – I was doing an Internet search one day about why Dooce’s blog is so damn popular (because I couldn’t tell after reading it) and I stumbled upon Missy’s blog because she had wondered the same damn thing. And after reading Missy’s blog I had to send her an e-mail because even though she lived in Florida, I discovered she had gone to Iowa State, was a Midwestern girl at heart, and liked Gordon Lightfoot’s music as much as I did. And if someone can admit to liking “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” well, I need to know them better. Then Missy stalked me on Facebook and now we’re bloggy and Facebook friends. I have no doubt we’d be friends in real life too if we weren’t separated by geography (although she’s currently moving back to the Midwest as we speak so maybe someday we’ll have a face-to-face).

DG’s World by Big D – Anyone whose tag line is “land of the donut, home of the beer” pretty much had me at hello. I have been reading this blog ever since Jen Lancaster linked to her. Frankly, with the kind of traffic Jen Lancaster can generate, I’m surprised her followers are not in the thousands by now. I’ve only commented once but read her blog every day and plan on making my presence a little more known, especially since I’m giving her an award. Her writing is hilarious and I think she’s way smarter than I am so please check her out.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for today. And remember, tomorrow is Flashback Friday! Please join me in posting humiliating pictures of yourself, or someone you love. It’ll be a blast.

You know you want to.

I So Needed This Today

  • April 8, 2009

Look what Missy at That’s So Missy did! She’s given me an Adorable Blog award. I only hope that some day my blog will look as good as Missy’s. Make sure you head over and check her out!

I pretty much knew Missy and I would hit it off, especially after I discovered she went to college in Iowa and digs Gordon Lightfoot as much as I do.

I’ve seen these awards floating around the blogosphere and now thanks to Missy, I have one of my very own. It couldn’t come at a better time either. I’m having one of those weeks where blogging has felt like something I have to do instead of something I love to do. I’m having a busy week and things should be back to normal soon.

I want to pay this forward by awarding the Adorable Blog award to the following adorable bloggers:

Dispatches from the island
Andria and Co.

Dispatches from the island is Jorge Garcia’s blog. He plays Hurley on Lost which is my favorite show of all time (his blog is awesome too). I’m not expecting him to get very jazzed about my bestowing this award on him (or even acknowledging it if I’m being realistic), especially since it’s an Adorable Blog award and not a Your Character on Lost Totally Kicks Ass award but I don’t care.

Anyway, thanks again Missy – you made my day!
