Susan Swiderski @ I Think; Therefore, I Yam was kind enough to share two wonderful awards with me this week, The Stylish Blogger Award and The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. This reminded me that I've been remiss about fulfilling the requirements for both The Stylish and Versatile Blogger Awards, which I've decided to combine as one mega award. I'd like to thank Susan for waking me up in her own witty way, and I hope she won't mind that instead of writing 7 things about myself, I'll summarize at the end with a poem. Rather than forward the awards, I'd like to change the rules again by revisiting the wonderful bloggers who deserve a long overdue thank you.
Rhonda @.laugh quotes has bestowed a few awards upon me. The most unusual one is the Overlord Award. I hope to fulfill all of those requirements sometime in 2012. Recently Rhonda and I reconnected on Facebook when she told me about the A to Z Challenge. She has been a huge support to me, and has kept me in stitches along the way.
Julie Flanders @ What Else Is Possible also awarded me with The Stylish Blogger honor as did Shannon @ The Warrior Muse. Julie and Shannon are co-hosting an A to Z Visitors Blog Hop that is still welcoming participants.
While I'm on a roll, I'd like to give a shout- out to a few others who took time out to send me awards:
Pam @ Pirate Knitting
Deirdra Eden Coppel
Sylvia van Bruggen
All of the above blogs are remarkable reads, and I encourage everyone to visit them as often as possible. For those of you who are still with me, below is a poem that begs to be Stylish as well as Versatile, but is far from Irresistibly Sweet.
Cleaning toilets makes me hungry,
Messy houses make me weep.
When it comes to drama queens,
You may call me Meryl Streep.
I write lefty and throw righty,
Though I pitch more fits than balls.
My family quite often threatens,
To have me surrounded by padded walls.
I can't go a day without chocolate,
I can't go an hour without TV.
I shouldn't go a minute without make-up,
Voted "looks worst in the morning," by my sorority.
I'm happiest when my kids are oozing with excitement,
Telling tales that are oh so gripping.
That I almost don't mind tripping,
Over their rancid toenail clippings.
Have you heard, I have a spouse?
Who was forced to leave the house!
Before I could make any blogging corrections,
He was misplaced into Witness Protection.
