And the accolades keep coming

8 Sep

Recently, one of the coolest bloggers I follow nominated me for the Seven Things About Me award.  I must tell you, this awards thing is way too much fun for me, and it’s making me think that I have some egotistic qualities that I hadn’t noticed before.

I love the opportunity of talking about myself, and having someone prompting questions is divine!  But my humbler side is in conflict, though, so to make this a teaching moment for myself, I will share only embarrassing stuff about me.  I hope you’re happy with what you’ve done, Fern DeVilliers!

Don’t you love that Tamra and Gretchen are friends now? What? No? You don’t care?!!!

  1. I love watching all the Real Housewives (except for the Miami ones, I don’t watch that shit).  I despise them.  I hate that they have a forum where they can show how nasty idle women can get. But I just can’t stop watching!  I used to watch and post comments on GetGlue simultaneously up until the moment when it felt like an addiction.  I’m happy to inform that at least that part is over.  If only I could stop the watching-the-show part!
  2. I think that numbers have very distinct personalities.  Some are female and some are male.  From zero to 10, 3 and 6 are the best of friends (they’re male, of course) 5 is the coolest female, and 2 is a meddler.  There is no logic to it, only that I’m terrible at math and had to make them into people so that they could form relationships between themselves in my head.  I really hope that this doesn’t make you click the “unfollow” button, I’m not deranged (I think).
  3. On a related note, I couldn’t do math to save my life.
  4. I’m an indecent cook (meaning: not even decent).  I remember an occasion, when I was recently married and invited my friends to a diner party.  I wanted to make stuffed chicken tenderloins with ham and cheese.  Pretty pedestrian, right?  Well, I wanted to impress, so I held the tenderloins together with colored toothpicks and put them in the oven.  When my friends cut into the chicken, the colors had bled into the meat!  All of them remind me of the Colored Chicken Diner Party to this day.
  5. I once yelled at a deaf kid because I thought he wasn’t paying attention on purpose.  Nothing else to say about that.  It is just plain embarrassing.
  6. I almost never wash my car or clean the interior.  I know it is kinda important to maintain it in good condition, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.  I even broke a rear view mirror almost two years ago and haven’t gotten around to fixing it.
  7. I spend almost every Friday night laying on my living room’s rug.  The kind of work I do can get exhausting sometimes and on most Fridays I have to drive for more than an hour each way, and be on my feet, and be talking till exhaustion comes.  At the end of the day, my body is just worthless.  A coworker told me she’d call me “rug-lady” from now on, but I have some objections to the connotation that this might have.

Well, there you have it.  For those of you that thought I was a normal girl, what were you thinking?!  Have you not read my posts?  There is a thread of abnormality that binds them together (or so I would like to think).

To make this more interesting, I’m going to nominate seven perfect strangers for the award.  I hope they get it!

  1. – this was posted just as I was looking for options on the wordpress reader
  2. – loved the post’s vintage picture
  3. – interesting post title
  4. – loved the only post I’ve read from her
  5. – I can’t believe they did that to a Hershey’s Kiss
  6. – love the blog’s concept
  7. – again, lovely post picture

    I am very happy with what I’ve done, thank you very much LOL! And hey, I don’t clean my car or the interior either, and it drives my husband absolutely bonkers. He is a “car” guy – meaning he really likes and knows everything there is to know about cars – and the fact that I can’t be bothered to even go to the car wash once a month kills him. And I have a nice car too which makes it even worse. He’s like, “You have this nice car and it looks like crap. What will people think?” I don’t really care what they think. It gets cleaned when it rains. Thanks for sharing, and you seem pretty normal to me 🙂

      I agree with you on the rain thing. Besides, my little suv is the color of dirt, so you can’t really tell that it hasn’t been washed in months. On a side note, I like a bit of abnormality in my life, though.

    Thank you…from a perfect stranger (who really DID THAT to Hershey’s kisses!!) 🙂

    Hello from the perfect stranger who posted in the perfect time :). Thanks for the nomination! I might actually give this a shot too.

    Loved reading your post. I had to laugh out loud at the fact that you think numbers have distinct personalities! Given that I am in accounting, following your method might actually make life a bit more interesting for me.

    • caramelolimon September 9, 2012 at 9:25 pm #

      I’m already looking forward to reading your own post. I strongly suggest you try out the numbers thing, only be careful with zero, he has a very low self-esteem 😉
