And the Winner is...

ME! I won the coveted Meme Award!

My first Blogger Award.

Here it is! Ain't it great?!

I received word of it when I was busy with Hank Torgit and Babette, so I let the award sit in the corner for a week. Then, when they left, I had to study for a big-ass test I took yesterday, so I let the award sit some more. Then, I fell in love with Muesli and totally forgot about the award.

But this morning I remembered! And it was like having my birthday all over again!

I won! Thank you Cat Lady! I am really touched and honored and only a little bit annoyed that I now have to divulge 7 quirky personality traits to the world in order to receive this award. I am a very private person. I am not the kind of person who goes around typing things up about myself for the world to see.

What the hell am I talking about? I am just that kind of person.

So here it is: 7 quirky personality traits-

1. I can miss the obvious. Example- I have worked with kids my entire adult life, and just recently I realized that the reason they are so cute is because they have very big heads relative to the size of their bodies. Has anyone else noticed this?

2. I love having someone to hate. Life is better when I have a villain in the picture. Then I can rant and rave about my villain and blame everything on him/her.

3. I can be a bit superstitious. Yesterday, I felt ready for my exam because I wore my good luck underwear, didn't shower in order to keep the good luck dirt on me and was delighted when I took a great big good luck dump before leaving the house.

4. I like soup. Is that a personality trait? I think so.

5. I second guess myself sometimes.

6. I am shy. Seriously. I know it doesn't seem that way but that is only because I know you so well and am really comfortable around you.

7. I am not a born risk taker. But I am learning that in order to really live fully, you have to take risks sometimes.

Seven traits revealed, I now get to pass the award to seven worthy bloggers. So now, without further ado, I bequeath to the following, the prestigious Meme Award.

1. Hawaiian Pun over at Write in the Kisser. He was the first stranger to write something encouraging about my blog. And he is really funny.

2. Steamy at Steam Me Up Kid because she used the transitive property in a post once. That is worth an award. She is pretty much brilliant.

3. Hank Torgit at The Midwest Palace. You should visit his blog and read the posts about bugs. But don't get too attached. Hank Torgit has been on a very long blog haitus. This is a real loss for all of us. He is really funny. And he is my brother.

4. Chris at Margueritaville because he is a principal at a school and he uses the f word in his posts. Plus he is an amazing story teller and he is really funny.

5. Gwen at Everything I Like Causes Cancer because I got a really great tea recipe from her. And then I discovered that she is hilarious.

6. Spudballoo at Chez Spud because I have to make it up to her because I keep making her spit wine onto her computer screen. I think that this may be her second Meme, but she deserves it. She has a beautiful blog.

7. B at Cuttings On A Blog because she inspires me.

And there you have it! Thanks again Cat Lady!!

    Do you want me to, like, do something nasty so that I can be your villain for awhile? I can be really bitchy if you want me to be... you know, just to help you out with that one.

  • Steam Me Up, Kid Says:

    Thanks Nano. I'm shy too. And I hate too, it's much easier to blame your villain. Actually, I used the transitive property in one of my first posts too, referring to the "transitive property of hate" where if I hate her and she hates him, I hate him too. I think that's how it went...My hate math is rusty.

    Again, thanks. I'll sidebar it this weekend.

    This post was really funny. Your fingers are really funny.

    I'm going to go mock some kids now for having huge melons. It's better to mock kids, because they can't kick your ass for mocking them. Also, it's harder to chase someone when you have a huge head.

  • Nanodance Says:

    Imnotbenny- Your comment made my day! Trust me- today, that was a very good thing.

    Have fun with the mocking, but don't forget, those little buggers have stamina.

    Thanks for the follow!

  • Gwen Says:

    Wow! I clicked on your twitter link to be nosy and see who won and BAM! I'm a winner! I didn't see that one coming. Nicely played.

    Thanks for the link and kind words, lady! I think you're pretty darn funny yourself.

  • CatLadyLarew Says:

    Nanodance's fingers are funny! I love that! It makes me laugh! Funny fingers, funny fingers, funny fingers! (Say that 10 times really fast.)

  • Nanodance Says:

    Cat Lady,

    That's the only part of me that is funny these days, I'm afraid.


  • ettarose Says:

    I LOVE to hate! It is the best stress reliever ever. One of these days I may post a list of the things I hate. You are funny my dear.
