August Awards

Friday, August 19, 2011

I have no idea what is going on but if this works maybe I can next visit you my lovely followers. I’ve only been trying since 4 this morning to post this.

fire award Mary
Mary @ Giggles and Guns bestowed a lovely award on me yesterday. Thank you Mary, I won’t forget this (she says rolling eyes). I hope my answers live up to your expectations.

Are you a rutabaga? Well, not really. I’m more of a grababaga, I love grab bags.

Who is your current crush?
Can you tell why this is my current crush? I want one of these dogs SO bad.

A picture that makes you smile. (I did two but from the same movie)

I love the idea of dancing when I shouldn’t be.

And who doesn’t like Doctor Lovelace!

When was the last time you ate a vine-ripened tomato? I have been eating them everyday for about 2 weeks now, however at night I am visited by dreams of “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.”

Name a habit the causes other people to plot your demise. People have been plotting my demise for years but I received at birth, “Hillbilly-head-of-yah.” One step ahead, running with my moonshine jug, what causes people to plot I have no idea but I have my jug.

What is the weirdest most disgusting job you have ever had to do? Working for the prison system and diving in a dumpster looking for a shank. I was the only one that fit, needless to say this caused me to evaluate my career path.

Where da muffin top at? I ate it! I eat only the tops of muffins and biscuits, another personal quirk that causes people to plot my demise. 

Describe yourself using obscure Latin terms.
lost tamen gauisus. qua da barba? (lost but happy, where da whiskey?) That is obscure isn’t it?

I am suppose to pass this on to other bloggers, Ms. Giggles had 3 so I will attempt the same.

I have been bad at the awards these past couple of months. Others have bestowed them on me and some how I have the award but no rules or reference as to whom gave them to me. Sorry about that!

Speaking of awards, this is one item that will be changing here. I will be dedicating a page to them and thanking those who give them but no longer will I be hyper-linking the award back to you. It is time consuming and slows things down.

Hopefully now I can make the rounds. I did a test and after putting a sleeper hold on the blogger comment demon I think I have his permission.

Have a great weekend.

Jules, I'd be happy to send you my book - email me, okay?

Darn it all, I can't read any of it. I'll check back in a day or two to see if I can read it then.

I know what you mean about hyper-linking awards and all that. Guess that's why I'm still sitting on a pile of them--the posts can take a lot of time.

I'm looking forward to some vine-ripened tomatoes when I get to Tennessee tomorrow. My mother keeps telling me about all the great tomatoes they've been having.

I don't like to waste stuff so I do eat the whole muffin, but I save the tops for last.

Everything worked fine for me.
I think you just said it didn't so I'd feel bad about making you work so hard.
The answers were worth it though -- I knew they would be.

That worst job sounds like a bad one!

I love this time of year for tomatoes.

Who doesn't like a good grab bag? Good answer!

Sorry honey, it's still garbled and I can't read most of it. (Even with my glasses on.) I did see something about a rutabaga. Which has piqued my curiosity. I'll try back here later and see if I can read it better!

Eeek, it seems I can only read the first bit for some reason -- nothing happens when I click' more'. It could just be me, though!
