I could be Miss Top 1001-1750!

Ooooh! guess what michele told me?!

There is one of those blogger popularity contest thingies going on that i didn’t know about, and i’m in it, and don’t know how that happened, because who cares it made my day. i am not too cool to care, and that is NO secret around these parts, of course.

AHEM. (no. i couldn’t make it any bigger. isn’t it pretty?)

>The 2006 Weblog Awards

You might think that if there is a ‘Finalist’ status, that there were preliminary rounds or something. But who knows? First I’ve heard of it. If you’re so inclined, you can go vote.


Really, you could.

Because apparently some of y’all either really like my "I’m SoooooooOOOoo depressed" tone, or you kinda feel sorry for me because i’m suddenly too lazy to even use capital letters in my posts. And that’s okay. Is it a good time to tell you that I’ve reworked my drugs and i’m doing a little better? ok, really, it’s more like i’m feeling a little manic, but that’s okay for now. trust me, it’s fine.

yesterday i asked my mom if i was acting a little weird and could it be possible if i were acting a little too happy that it was the increased dosage? her diplomatic response: "Well, I expect you to hit a plateau soon."

Ha. Ha ha mom. That translates directly to: "Yes, you’re a Happy Freak today, but it’s such a nice change  – let’s just go with it and see if it’s worse than Faceplant on the Carpet Depressed Version."

Snippets of Today:

It was surreal, and i might be drugged, but I promise all of this stuff actually happened. there were witnesses.

1. I chatted with a woman playing an accordian

2. my mom and i ended up in a MANSION – unlike any dwelling place i have ever before seen except maybe on tv, well probably not even there. Oh. My. GAWSH.

3. there was a horse in the entryway of the mansion.

4. i assumed it was fake.

5. it was not.

6. it wore little tennis shoes, and it was a miniature pony of some sort.

7. later, it walked into the mansion’s KITCHEN, and stranger? the whole episode was so surreal, it didn’t seem odd at the time – to either my mom or myself – to see this horse in TENNIS SHOES in the kitchen of a mansion.

8. it seemed very, VERY weird later.

9. i lost one of my kids immediately upon entering the place, but he reappeared later. (yuh huh. Ethan-6yr of course.)

10. Toothbrush Sword Fighting caused great drama tonight.

11. toothbrush sword-fighters in question: Ethan-6yr and Caden-2yr

12. I think caden-2yr ‘won’ somehow, but i don’t know the details.

13. there was much screaming and wailing and accusing.

14. i tried to act sympathetic

15. but i was not

16. as i am a heartless mommy whose boys were fighting with toothbrushes for pete’s sake,

17. and since when does that get sympathy (how bad can a toothbrush hurt?)

18. when they’re supposed to be in bed so i can

19. be with y’all…? (suck up to the pretty voters)

20. run-on sentences are even better when ennumerated, dontchathink?

you can vote for shannon here, michele here, and for me, me, Me!! here.

The category is a little broad. 1001-1750. Try putting that on a baby blue satin sash.

Which reminds me.

My sister used to be friends with Miss Beans and Legumes. And also friends with The Peanut Queen. did i get that wrong, holysister? (correct me in comments if you get a sec. ) We made fun of their unattractive titles. No more.

I could be MISS TOP 1001-1750.

it’s bee-yoo-ti-ful.

You’re a finalist because you were nominated. Someone (me) thought your blog was good enough to be entered in this category and also the humor category. It’s a good thing that I nominated you for this category because the competition in the humor category is fierce.

Thanks for the mention.

Oh, I am so glad I discovered you. And that you’re on drugs, cause you make me laugh. Keep it up. Then post pictures with your crown and blue satin sash. You’re totally going to win. And even if you don’t, it’s an honor just to be nominated.

I voted…and I bookmarked the page so I can vote again tomorrow…that’s legal right?.

So, what I want to know is this. Did Blaine vote for you twice since he posted the same comment twice? Or did he vote 4 times since he said “I voted” twice in each comment making 4 total “I voted”s?

Or maybe he voted twice for someone else and twice for you since he only said “for you” once in each comment to make twice total.

Well, anyway, I only voted once, but I’m sure I like you just as much as Blaine does. I’m just not smart enough to figure out how to vote so many times.

I think I’ll take a toothbrush to work with me today and see if they confiscate it as a weapon.

Actually you got the Peanut Queen right, it was the other you fudged. My Australian friend Clare was so amused by Dairy Queen (they don’t have Dairy Queens in Australia) that she dubbed herself the Nuts & Legumes Queen. It was a good title. The Peanut Queen had a MUCH better crown and cape though.
