With what little eyesight I have left, I've been neglecting my reading list mostly because I've been misreading things.  When one reads, "Wore" as "Whore", one should avoid reading fine print - or any print for that matter.  And I won't go into my recent Wheel of Fortune incident.

My new eyeballs (glasses) are supposed to "reach" this week.
Reach (as a Bahamian verb):  whenever it/they/whatever arrives at a destination; emphasis on whenever.
At any rate, during my blog skimming I discovered that two blogging awards were recently bestowed upon me by that crazy Arizonan zombie wombat we all know and love as  Quirkyloon.  Imagine my surprise when I saw these:

So, in keeping with true Quirky fashion:


 "Stylish"?  Moi? Just be glad that this isn't a video blog.  I didn't know what "matching" meant in fashion jargon until 10th grade but I try to adhere to that rule when I now go out in public.  Alright, I know that that's not what is meant by this 'Stylish' award.  Notwithstanding, I'm still verklempt!

*vapours hand-fan*

"Versatile"?  Granted that I don't really have a 'theme' to my blog and I write about dis, dat, and de udder tingum so, in that respect, I guess I am versatile!

*sheepish grin*

Alas, with greatness comes responsibilities.  Whether it be a Pulitzer Prize or a Blogging Award, obligations are attached, implied or not.  In this case, the cling-ons are:

1. Thank and link back to the person giving you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 10-15 blogs you think deserve this award.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award.

When I was given my first blog award there were "rules" attached, and when I received it I was quite the 'newbie': my task was to award 7+ bloggers and state why I thought they deserved the honour. Gah! I barely knew a handful of people at best and, likewise, they barely knew me. Little did I know then that it wasn't completely taboo to break the rules. And, like Quirks, I'm not all about rules.

Let's just call them guidelines, shall we?
  1. I thank ye, O Quirkyloon, and graciously accept the honours ye have bestowed upon me.  (Um, no biggie but you forgot to drop me a nugget note about the awards.  I'll assume it was due to a DDP withdrawal - that or Blogger was still experiencing its own Twilight Zone).  You like me!  You really like me!!
  2. Seven things about meself ... well, I've probably already shared more than that and more than you care to know throughout my posts.  Fine.  I'll give you one of which you may not be aware:  I am NOT a cat.   I am, however, a bit of a 'dozo':  I get confused; then again, I am so easily confused.
  3. Pass the awards to 10-15 bloggers:  

Heh, heh.

I could surely name at least ten - probably more - blogs that deserve these awards but I think I'll just stick with the few bloggers I think will have fun with them.  Hopefully I will not overlap any other honourees that may be named by my co-recipients but, you know, shit happens.  So, in no particular order:
  • Sandra at Absolutely Narcissism.  She's a beautiful and very funny lady who should try stand-up comedy (or at least write some), and gets up all in your face with her 'naughty bits'.  Really (I mean with the 'naughty bits').
  • Nicky, Mike (and occasionally, Jepeto) at We Work For Cheese.  They are wonderfully cheesy people and are responsible for unleashing upon the blissfully ignorant the cacophony of caustic concoctions known as poutine (not to be confused with 'poontang').
  • Cheeseboy (Abe) at The Blog O' Cheese.  When he's not role playing as kitchen appliances (his most recent post), you might spot him at the local Chinese take-out dressed as Barney the Dinosaur, waxing his arm hair or doing some other crazy stuff like that.  Hey, he works with kids - young kids - the kind of kids that drive you bonkers - all day long.  Yeah, he's entitled.
  • Meleah at Momma Mia, Mea Culpa.  She hails from Jersey, complete with the attitude (she loves the badger), is so versatile that she surfs the 'net while sitting on the john, but above all, she has a heart of gold.
I hope you visit these sites -  they are worth a look-see.  Hey, you might even learn something about your private parts, cheese, kids and/or badgers!

Once this is published, I will be off to complete the last of my obligations.  Speaking of obligations, I'm then off to go pick up some beer booze butter.  Oh, and the newspapers.



"Eyeball" update:  They are now to arrive sometime early next week.  Yeah, right.  I won't be holding my breath.





  1. Yea! Congrats on your award. Hee Hee. Those dang obligations. Tisk. Tisk.

    Ah, I know "reach" and "done reached". My friend who is on Crooked right now has used that often. They are begging for some rain over there.

  2. Congratulations and thank you so much Dozo! We'd like to thank the academy... :-)

    I hope you get your eyeballs soon! I forgot mine at home the other day and I had such a bad headache when I got home from work!

  3. Thanks Double O, we really apprecia...wait wait! Another cheese-named blog??? Hmm...will need to investigate this.

    Thanks again and congrats!

  4. Reffie: Thanks! You would've been on my list but I think Madge already tagged and bagged you.

    Heh, heh.

    You got friends on Crooked? Yay! You be then an honourary Bahamian!! Yes, our rainy season isn't living up to it's name - still, it may yet reach. Hopefully over time and not all at once.

  5. Nicky: Thanks and you are so welcome!

    Yep. I be getting the headaches, too, even with my present lenses. Talk about "one-eyeballing it" even without the merlot. Heh, heh.

  6. CheesyMike: Take it easy - Abe's not into cheese like you guys, he's just um, well, cheesy! (Your comment reminded me of a cartoon or skit ... dang if I can remember ... still, it got me giggling.).

    And, your're welcome.

  7. Thanks for defending me and thanks for this honor! I will place this on my mantel and polish it daily. Truly, thank you. And now to go check out this other cheese blog impostor . (I bet I have been around longer than they have.)

  8. You can now call yourself a multiple award winning blogger. Well done. Did you type that last line in small print on purpose? That's so mean. I may have to borrow your glasses when you reach.

  9. Cheeseboy/Abe: You're very welcome!! As for your honour, no defending needed. You stand alone, like Limberger. (Kidding!)

    Have fun!

  10. dufus: Ha! I was confused (no surprise there) when you said "multiple". Then I thought, well, yeah, I got two awards - that's multiple, and wondered who was the confused one here. Of course I realize now that I'd be hangin' with you for the week - or at least another four and a half hours, depending on your religious views.

    Heh, heh.

    As for the itty-bitty text, I shrank(?), shrunk(?) ...fuck it ... made it smaller after I typed it. I suprised myself that I could actually read it - just barely - but I'll be more than happy to share my eyeballs with you should you need them. Just don't ask me to drive anywhere.

  11. Hope those eyeballs reach soon! (I'm sure you whore the old ones well, though.)

  12. Boom Boom: Heh, heh. I think I whored them out pretty good - I stripped one of the screws in the frame, tried to secure it with a twist-tie but that didn't work (the 'ball' on the right side kept popping out), now I've got whipping twine holding them together.

  13. Congratulations on the awards. I can't think of anyone more deserving! You live on a rock for heaven's sake. And you blog! I love that about you!

  14. Linda: Why, thank you! Quirks also hit you with this double-shot of awards so, likewise, congrats to you, too!!

  15. Awww! Congrats on your awards. Thank you SO MUCH for the mention. You rock! And my eye sight is pretty bad these days too. I've now added reading glassed with my contacts!
