Beautiful Blogger Award

From Laura at Hey What's For Dinner Mom? , thanks Laura!

Rules: Post 7 random factoids about yourself and then pass it to seven other bloggers.

Seven Random Facts (Not sure what factoids are, is there a difference?):

1. My mom failed me when it came to teaching me about puberty. I never knew (until I started birth control) that you could track your period to exactlty every 28 days. I knew it came monthly but I just thought we were supposed to watch for it, a guessing game if you will. Thanks mom. And thank you birth control

2. I always thought that the color of our blood was really blue inside our body and that it only turned red when it came into contact with oxygen. I swear I learned that in school didn't you?

3. My husband has decided to charge me for every story that I write about him on this blog. Not even kidding. (But I've got a juicy one coming up! Any donations are appreciated.)

4. I'm obsessed with movies. I have to watch at least 3 a week, but I can't just sit and watch them, I have to be doing something like cooking, cleaning, blogging. You get the picture.

5. I got this email from my sister, Lindee, this morning after I told her I might want to go back for my master's degree:

"Why don't you have a freaken kid retard."

She loves me.

6. I've cried on my birthday every year since I turned 12.

7. I first smoked a cigarette when I was 25 and didn't like it. I probably wasn't doing it right. I never do anything right.

I pass this on to:

1. Lindee (Yes, even though she called me a retard)
2. Living the Life with the Wife of Riley
3. Tranquility... and Turmoil
4. Perpetual Burn
5. Running Away? I'll Help You Pack
6. Tara from TMI
7. Jen at Burried With Children
8. Steph at Auburn Soul Photography
9. Airing My Dirty Laundry, One Sock At A Time...
10. Finding Fairy Tales

Brian Miller said...

Suzi said...

Thanks for the LOVE! Wow, what a whirl wind of awards. Obviously someone loves you too and it isn't just Albert. I almost got tired reading through all the awesome awards you received.

Furry Bottoms said...

I am a superstar?!!! *wiggles* Thank you Pooba!!!

BTW, your muffin top makes you happy? You're an odd cookie, indeed.

ChicagoLady said...

Thank you for considering my blog, now that I've come back to the blogging world.

brokenteepee said...

Awwww, thank you for thinking of me.
You have made me a very happy goat!

Julia said...

Oh Pooba, you can just call that dragon award the faithful dog award. Seriously. Woof. Bow wow..but not in a "I want your cherry" kind of way. :)

Now I am laughing at my self. I guess that is good. Or troubling.

Mike said...

I heard that there were like 1.8 million blogs or some large number, an yet you managed to link them all! LOL!

Blood is not blue in veins?? I was taught that.

Thanks for my awards! :)

Stacy Uncorked said...

Oh crap. There goes my theory that I'm a Blue Blood. ;)

Look at you rockin' all those awards! And holy cow woman! You totally made my day with bestowing some on me, too! I guess that means you want me to do some work, eh? ;)

Oh, and by way of donations, do you think Albert would be willing to accept wine in lieu of cash for payment for stories of him? ;)

Anonymous said...

Awesome thank you for the award, it is my first one EVER!!

By the way, I also thought blood was blue inside and then once the air hit it then it turned red...I may be guilty of believing that still...

Cassie said...

ahh this makes me know that i need to get back to my blog...congrats on all the awards!! :)

Sara said...

Congrats on all the awards!!! I'd be tired too with all the bowing and princess waves. *whew*

Thank you for the award!

Rebecca Jo said...

Formerly known as Frau said...

Congrats on all your awards and thanks!

Karin Katherine said...

My word! Who knew there were so many blog awards! Thanks for mine. Glad you don't hate me. Although if you want to hate my mom I'm fine with that.


I guess I'm also mean.
I get it from HER!

Oh, I crack myself up.
And I probably need to pray for myself.

Mandy said...

Awwww! You think I'm sweet!! :) Thanks!

Congrats on all of your awards! Good grief!

Heather@WHMB said...

That was some bid'ness, indeed! And, my acceptance speech in the words of Kathy Griffin:
"Suck it Jesus, this award is my God now." HA. Okay, didn't real mean it or to offend anyone...so, seriously - thank you very much! I am one of the cool kids, score.

Stephanie said...


And yes! I would love a dog in the session. I've always wanted to do a session with pets. Can't wait.

Justine said...

OMG, I made the cut 3 times! Woot woot!!!!

Okay, definitely want the juicy news on Albert.

You like your muffin top? But wait, you don't have a muffin top. A muff maybe, but not a muffin.

Wait. I know I learned somewhere that our blood actually is blue until it gets oxygen. But wait, we have oxygen IN our blood. Aw fuck, now I've gotta Google this shit. Thanks.

Justine :o 0

AiringMyLaundry said...

Dang, does this mean you hate me?

Congrats on your awards!

Tara Bennett said...

WOW! that's an impressive amount of awards! You need to put a faux mantel in your blog header where you can show them all off!!!

Thanks for spreading the love too, I'm honored :)

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Come on Al you really going to make my girl pay! Ok that day you put it up well form a wall around the blog so he can't look and see it ... LOL

Thank you so much for the award. And listing me amongst so many great bloggers. I see so many friends and some great new options to visit. I am bookmarking this.

WELL deserved.

THANK you for passing one of the awards on to me!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Thank you lil Sis!! I appreciate all the bloggy love.
