Le Petit Oscars

A wonderful surprise was waiting for me yesterday.

Shar at La Bonne Vie awarded me with the Lovely Blog and Sugar Doll Awards.

This was particularly wonderful because;
1. there are thousands upon thousands of blogs out there and Shar thought of me, 2. I can now share all the love and wonderful feelings by passing the awards on which puts me in a Glenda the Good Witch kind of mood, and 3. I have an eye infection, a crick in my neck, and it's been raining for two days which has left me feeling like this...

And Shar's kindness actually got me to take off my cat costume, put down the machine gun, and smile.

Now, you know how this goes... 10 things about me that you do not know, and then I share the love with the chosen bloggers.

Since I know that the suspense is killing you... DUN DUN DUN... I'll start with the spreading of all that wonderful joy and love...

(me, bestowing joy and love)

Now the tricky part, 10 things about little ol' moi...

1. I used to be a champion, state record holding, swimmer, not kidding, I actually was.

2. The first time I met The Boyfriend was after midnight in a nightclub. This tidbit of info is for all the single ladies out there that are told that this never happens. It does and it did.

3. When I was in 6th grade, I developed a horrible bumpy red rash all over my forehead and around my eyes (swimming related). It lasted into 7th grade, this was in addition to buck teeth, too short, too frizzy hair, and being tall for my age, I was teased relentlessly and boys barked at me. I now enjoy looking at photos on Facebook of some of the people that teased me. I will not say anything unkind about how they have 'grown', but will say that karma is clearly a b*tch.

4. I got arrested during a bar fight in New York City on St. Patrick's Day when I was 16. Not something that I'm particularly proud of but hey, pretty cool story to tell the grandkids.

5. I snore. Loud. Like a large truck driving, lumber jacking, fat man loud.

I know I said 10 but you get 5.

I need to save something for the memoir.



  1. Congrats! And thanks for the love up there! And I'm sure there are a lot more people who snore but don't want to admit it. I'm one of those people. lol.

    Also, I hope you feel better soon!

  2. Thank you Sarah! I'll get these babies up in a post shortly.

    Number 3 is so funny! I too get a kick out of old friends on facebook...not to brag, but time has been very kind to me! Takes the old sting out of those catty comments, right?

    This means I've gotta wrack my brain for 10 little known facts...and right now I've got a cold. I think I should wrack it when it's clear headed, don't you? Who knows what family secrets I could spill in my current befuddled state!

  3. First, you had me cracking up so loud with that picture of "you" and the machine gun...then i was honored and touched that you spread your joy and love my way...awwww! Thank you doll! ...and then, bar fight in NYC on St. Patrick's day?? holey moley...I want details!!!! that must have been quite a story! Thanks for sharing the love!!!

  4. Sara,
    Awe, thanks girlie....could not have come on a better day. Not sure there are 10 things that my readers don't already know...kind of an open book and junk. I am honored, thank you.

  5. I agree totally about karma,the older you get the b*tcher it gets! I hope you were defending the honor of the Irish. I have three lovely daughters and it always sounded like a cowboy bunkhouse at night.

  6. The Oscars! I love it! Congratulations!! I can't wait to see all the other blogs you've chosen! Congrats to the winners!

  7. Arrested in a bar fight. Excellent.

  8. Thank you so much for my award!

    I know what you mean about seeing old friends on Facebook. I got teased at school too because I had braces and glasses. Now I'm happy to see that out of all the girls from my class at school I have the hottest fiancee!! (not that I like to brag!)

  9. this made my WHOLE week! thank you, sara! xoxo

  10. Thanks for the Love, Sara. You made me (a tired Homemaker Man) recover some pep in my step. I will get these up by tomorrow latest, I think.

  11. I love the nightclub story! Nice to know this happens in real life. =)

  12. Oh my, oh added little ole me? I mean I have been absent from reading this week as I was in a rather dour mood that I think writing helped tomorrow I will come up with my 10...thank you for letting me into your blog because each one I read really adds to my day...What is really odd...I have had a crick in my neck since Sunday co-wink-a-dink!

  13. I just realized you gave me an award but I have no idea on how to pick it up =/

    But thanks for the honor!!!

  14. Thanks, Glenda! I mean, Sara Louise. I am feeling the love! But just as fun is seeing your other winners...yay, new fun blogs to read!
