Fuck me I'm famous.
The very lovely Al over at Penwasser Place has given me a new Blog Award.
*tries to look humble but can't get huge swollen head off the floor*
Normally when I get given these things I just add them to my
First I have to tell you three random facts about myself.
Al numbered his responses in French. Blurghhh....anyone whose been reading here for any time will know I have a problem with the snail eating, nuclear waste producing racist garlic munchers across the channel, so in keeping with my last holiday in Barcelona I shall number mine in Spanish.
Uno. I have a 'thing' about symmetry. I like certain things, like my collection of Italian glass bottles to appear balanced on the shelves. When I get a new one it takes me ages to work out exactly where it should be placed before it feels right. I have a friend who has one pierced nipple - I wish she had never shown me because when I talk to her I can't help but lean to the side of it, in my head she is no longer balanced.
Dos. Racially I am a bit of a mongrel. My grandmother on my Mother's side was an Irish Gypsy and my Dads mother was a Scottish Jewess.
Tres. I'm slightly psychic. I've never really 'honed' those skills, I don't want to, but I can read Tarot and I have had several 'otherwordly' experiences. (I'd blog about them but you lot probably think I'm strange enough as it is).
The other thing I'm required to do is pass the award on to seven people. I'm going to bestow this amazing honour to some that I have discovered quite recently. Mostly because I do REALLY dig these blogs (is it me or does the term dig make anybody else wanna say groovy baby), but also because I want to show them to my
A couple of them are quite new, so for you guys I understand you might not have seven to pass it on to, but I think your blogs are great so please take the award anyway. You can still tell me some interesting facts about yourself. (age/
So anyway, these are my nominations.
Uno. One Angry Man.
Dos. Stupid By Name.
Tres. Vice Versa
Those three are very very new, none of them have many posts but if what they have so far is anything to go by then there is much hilariousness to follow. They have all cracked me up. Go on guys, follow them and give them some much needed blog love and encouragement.
I promise you won't be disappointed.
I found Gweenbrick via my blogger friend Lily (the mental single parent mentioned below), this guy is so funny. His blog has a few running themes, he also makes great illustrations that have me laughing out very loud (LOVL ? - I dunno), but check him out, for the life of me I don't understand why he hasn't got many more followers.
Cinco. Nightly Chatter With Your Hasidic Plumber
Rafi the Hasidic plumber kind of runs an online news programme/chat show on his blog - in between jetting off to fix pipes and dealing with Racoons.
Just don't mention Robocop.
Seis. The Rambling Person
Mark writes about lots of different subjects, he is an aspiring author (this is the guy who wrote my Cowgirl-before-she-was-dirty) story for me. I like the content of his blog, but I also like the way he seems to have turned his comments into his own forum. I love me some comments - I think Mark loves them even more then I do, there is always participation on his blog.
Siete. The Incoherent Ramblings of A Single Parent.
DO NOT be fooled by the title.
I love Lily, her blog is to the endless bland, dreary, here's-457-pictures-of-my-kid-dribbling-blogs what death metal is to choir music.
And as for the 'little man'....there's a reason why her forum name is mumtosatansspawn.
Just read it.
Well that was hard - when I started looking though my blog roll there were many more I wanted to mention.
If I left you off, I'm sorry.
If I read your blog then I comment on it, and I do that because I like it.
Surely my words on your blog is flattery enough ?
Hmm...might be time to give out a few more of the very sought after Cowgirls Comedy Awards.
Update : Lily and The Hasidic Plumber just left me comments, and the response I gave has got me thinking. . Since this is essentially whoring out other peoples blogs that makes me your pimp.
WHERE'S THE MONEY BITCHES !!!
However if asked for facts are. . . ahem. . . satisfactory, I will accept payment in kind.
