An Award? For Me???

Jennifer recently was awarded with the "A Blog With Substance" award. She gave it to me! And a bunch of others who are most likely to have more substance than I do, but I got it! It's mine and you can't take it away... Sweet. Thanks Jennifer (her link is up there under the sweet award, go visit her sometimes, her stories rock!)

So many rules to follow though... Here they are for me to break:
  1. Thank the blogger who awarded it to you;
  2. Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using five words;
  3. Pass it on to 10 other blogs which you feel have real substance.
I thanked Jennifer (3 times on my blog, can you find the 3 thank you's?), so for 1st item: CHECK! Second point to follow and ultimately break is my blogging philosophy, motivation and experience in 5 words (how can I sum up 3 complex components in a mere 5 words?)

As in I am the total opposite of Glenn Beck. Don't believe me? He's a man. I'm not. He's on TV. I'm not. He believes he was chosen by God to deliver the truth (result of this is we all laugh at him). I know I was chosen, maybe not by God per say, to make you laugh.  Did I say total opposite? Sorry, he's full of himself, I'm full of poop, same thing. So, we're not total opposites after all!

I love those off-beat movies. They're foreign, they have sub-titles, they're weird, they're independent, they're the best movies out there, and they're funky. Notice how I used Sundance to slide in more key words there, I'm such a...

I love establishing rules so I can break them. It's very similar to playing with Legos as a kid, build to destroy. I don't follow rules. Well, I kinda do but I know enough of them to work around them to where I'm not exactly following them, but I'm not breaking them either. Ya gotta know how to bend sometimes.

If people listened to me without cutting me off to talk over me, I wouldn't feel the need to blog. I have all these stories jammed up inside me, they need to come out just like...

When I hear the word substance, the first thing that comes to mind is poop.  Also, to me writing is so similar to pooping. It has to come out regularly otherwise you end up bound up. Right now this blog is fairly new, so I'm in the diarrhea phase of things. Lots of words, lots of stories, lots and lots of stuff coming out. Eventually I may run out of new stuff, and get what they call writer's block, or constipated.

...And now the moment you've all been waiting for. The bloggers better than I am who are even more deserving than me to receive any award are: (shit, this one is a challenge because I don't want to pick the same picks Jennifer made, and she just got 2 awards and lists a shitload of blogs, now I have to find some that weren't mentioned... challenging. It's not a rule, but it's my own rule I like to establish that I'll most likely break somehow...)
  1. Spunky Claire MontgomeryMD at Car Dancing;
  2. Homer loving Catherine (whom I like to refer to as Winky) at Wink at Me;
  3. The lovely Jules at Mean Girl Garage;
  4. Just JenJen at Jen's Voices;
  5. The Pirate Dad (he's a Pirate!) at The Didactic Pirate;
  6. Witty Sarah at The Naked Cupcake;
  7. One Blonde Girl at One Blonde Girl;
  8. *M* at Not Work Appropriate;
  9. Nasty funny Jay at Genius Pending.
I told you I was going to break another rule!


  1. Dear Miss Nikki,

    Thanks for the award! I can't f-ing believe that I will forever be linked with Homer Simpson. I've been away on vacation (without Homer) and see that you have several posts that I need to catch up on. Your blog rocks!


  2. @Jennifer: that's because poop is brilliant, no matter how you use it. My pref was in relation to Glenn Whatfuckingrockdidyoucrawloutof Beck, but thanks for the compliment, I still crave en and love em
    @ Winky: you know you can't get away from a- the nickname I gave you; and b- Homer. Even Marge can't get away from him!

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!! This is an AWESOME blog and I can say I found it first. Maybe not, but don't tell.

  4. @ Holly: you are most likely right about that (the part about being the first to find it, my fake humility doesn't allow me to publicly agree on the awesome part), I think you were about my first devoted reader, and that's why I am forever in your debt (AND the only reason I haven't transferred this award to you is because Jennifer beat me to the punch!)

  5. congrats to you and thank you from me!!! i'm not worthy. i'm not worthy.

  6. @ Claire: you're so worthy, you're so worthy...


Unless you are a zombie or a fembot, your comments are totally appreciated! Loved. Desired. And wanted (I added that in case it was not clear)
