Brain Fart and Awards

Saturday, January 14, 2012

I was not going to post this weekend but I messed things up and felt it best.  Oh yes, I screwed things up and thank you kindly to Theresa I found out quickly.

Ever see something and want it, only to find it does not work for you and all you want to do is return it? I  saw the new “Reply” option Blogger was offering, wanted it but found it did not want me. Hopefully, and I know it is thanks to Mary, I fixed my temporary want. So my post…

I received an award, actually two of them and no I really am swearing off awards but these two need mentioning.

First The Golden Eagle awarded me this and I thank her tremendously. Open-mouthed smile

Then I got this from Tammy @ A Message in a Bloggle, in which she also bestowed a huge compliment on me. Thanks does not say enough! Tammy is someone I thoroughly  enjoy; her wit and insight into the world we live… well go visit her and see. Tell her the crazy, loud-mouth, white woman over at the rainbow sent you.

I’m supposed to tell you seven things you do not yet know about me, so I’ll keep them short.

1.  I have 10 toes but only 9 toenails. I once was a covert operative and refuse to spill the beans, cost me 1 toenail.

2. I collect duck feathers. I’m half way to a homemade boa. Don’t ask me what I want them for.

3. & 4.  I don’t do dolls… of any kind and pink is my least favorite color. I’m the sister who would tear the arms and legs off Barbie and then give her a swirly. Pink and light blue say, “Stereotype” to me and I don’t do that either.

5. I’m secretly in love with those paper mache guys in the Kayak commercial. I want one.

6. I love playing pranks on people in the grocery and with men doing more shopping… I actually look forward to grocery shopping.

7. I believe in ghosts, big foot and the Lochness monster, so don’t go busting my bubble. Nessy I will never meet but this summer I’m taking Pete, my ghost, to Ohio to look for Bigfoot.

I’m not forwarding either of these. If you are here take them, I’m screaming at you to take them. If you are here you are close to my heart and I want to give you something, I just lazy and don’t want to do all that linking.

A great weekend to all!

OK< you confessed, well here goes....I too am a believer in Bigfoot, but I am pretty sure he lives out west. Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and in Utah. Or maybe ours is a cousin of the Ohio bigfoot.

If I ever meet him again, which I am sure I will, I'll ask him and let you know.

Tracy said, 

you crack me up....and still hurt you don't like pink-I take it as a personal offense! I don't EVEN want to know what your covert operation was...
hugs to you!

I may have bought that toenail at a garage sale not too long ago. Made it the centerpiece for a Christmas bulb over the holidays.

Paula said,

Tammy said, 

Well you've made me a little more afraid of the grocery store, but thank you for the compliments!

Lisa Ricard Claro said, 

You stinker. You've teased us with the grocery comment. What do you do? What? What? I'm dying to know. Grocery shopping is my least favorite chore (I'd rather clean the bathroom than go to the market) so if you've found a way to make this detestable activity fun, I'd like to hear it. So spill. Please?

Give Barbie a swirly..... oh perish the thought. Girls in Montana are tough. If you mess with their BF, they'll gang up and give you a swirly. I like your list Oh Wise one of the 9 toe nails.

Karen Lange said, 

Congrats, Jules! Fun to learn more about you. Since you love grocery shopping so much, perhaps I will let you do mine...

Hope you are staying warm!

Katie Gates said, 

Entertaining as always, and I came away with the same question as Lisa: what pranks do you play in grocery stores? (Truly, I can't even think of a possibility.) And my other question is this: which toenail is missing?

Congratulations on the awards.

Is your ghost, Pete, a short Irish gentleman with twinkling blue eyes? That's Dad.

DL Hammons said, 

One of my toenails is black and about to fall off. Consequences of trying to navigate through the house at 2 AM will all the lights off. :)

Jen Chandler said, 

LOL! Still laughing at these. I agree with the pink comment and the dolls. *shudder*.

I'll be happy to hunt Nessie with you and enjoy Bigfoot hunting with Pete. Every home needs a friendly ghost. I have a ghost cat in mine :D

Happy weekend,

I'm not a fan of pink either. My husband insists I look cute in pink, but I am such a tomboy, it just feels wrong.

The Blogger Formerly Known As said, 

Nessie is absolutely real. Not so sure about ghosts though; the last one I met I could see right through.

Oooh, I really want to see your half duck feather boa!

Congratulations on your well-deserved awards.

Oh, an PS, what’s so wrong about pink, may I ask?!?

Li said, 

Ah, we would have made excellent playmates as childen. I melted my Barbie, and my coolest toy (thanks, Dad!!!!) was a bazooka that fired tennis balls. *Sigh* They just don't make toys like they used to.

Congrats on the awards, my friend :-)

The Golden Eagle said, 

I used to be a huge fan of pink, but not so much anymore. :P

That must have been an important operation!

welcome to my world of poetry said, 

I deleted last post, I know only too well how important families are. Pity mine don't realise it. I am taking a little rest to sort out this mess.
Thanks for caring.

Those awards are so you!
We have a lot of Big Feet in Ohio. We call them athletes so they have a cover.
If there are no ghosts who moves all the stuff in my house?

Julie said, 

When you and the ghost come to Ohio to see Bigfoot, let me know and I'll join you in the search!

I also never liked dolls, even as a kid. I was all about my stuffed animals.

Congrats on the well-deserved awards, and I hope you enjoyed your weekend! :)

Ella said, 

Great awards and I agree, they are so deserving! Beware if you come to my blog, I have a big doll staring at you ;D
Someday we should go ghostbusting.
I know someone will twist that one around. I know a few good haunts ;D

Congrats on your awards!

What did I do? Tell you the comments were off? Glad to help!

Congratulations on your award. This was one of the funnest lists I've ever read!

Amie Kaufman said, 

Ha, thanks for the laugh! Lucky Pete, getting to head out on excursions -- I bet most hauntings would be far friendlier if folks were so considerate!
