Over The Top

October 9, 2009 at 11:54 am 6 comments

So, it seems one of my lovely (and also related to me) readers bestowed me with a blog award.


And no, I have no idea why she is wearing an apron. All I know is “Over The Top” makes me think of some sort of really restrictive heavy-petting guideline.

I hope you will forgive me if I don’t tag anyone else with this award, because frankly, the past week has worn it out on me. Brad is finally feeling somewhat like his normal self, but now we are concerned with Sadie’s lingering cough & perpetual sinus congestion. PLEASE, universe, PLEASE let my household be pestilence-free by the time our big Weekend-Sans-Baby arrives, because if I am robbed of those two sleep- and alcohol-laden days, I will go insane and possibly start sending glittery email forwards without irony, peace be with you, amen.

tony_and_mariaSay it soft, and it’s almost like praying.

This particular blog award comes with a quiz. A quiz! A perfect way to fill a blog post when your brain seems to have left the building.

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? Alive

    you really didnt have to do it! lol I was all excited that I won an “award”, but then found out the survey was kinda boring. I felt guilt-tripped into doing it though.

    you totally fail the one word requirement. I did too though- but still better than you.

    Actually I was going to say I found it pretty impressive that you squooshed all those letters into one word.

    Am sending pestilence free vibes eastward to your household. And I could not have stuck to the one word answer either!

    If my electricity ever goes out during The Office, I will cut a bitch dead.
