A Versatile Blog on Fire

In the past month two fellow bloggers have been sweet enough to give me awards. When I started this blog I was a little nervous. I could not imagine who would want to read my stream of consciousness ramblings. Thank god for Lady Baby, who provides me with constant fodder for The Lint Trap. Without her, I would be blogging about managing an optometrist office. (I am sure many of you are thinking about how hilarious that would be...not). 

My faithful Linty Peeps, please check these blogs out! 

Not so Silent Mommy gave out awards and the recipients had a choice between the two awards she was paying forward. We were supposed to choose for ourselves, so choose I will. While it sounds nice to be "versatile" how awesome is it when someone says, "damn, she is on fire." So really, there is no choice. Blog on Fire it is!!! (I have no idea if either of these are better, or more esteemed, etc. It is sort of like finding Nell in the woods and telling her to choose between a Oscar and an Emmy. She is just happy about the shiny statue. Same, same. I am just happy about the shiny statue.)

But wait, good news...I don't have to choose! The lovely Moms Mission Upstream gave me The Versatile Blogger award. I get to keep them both! Hooray! Henceforth, I would always like my blog referred to as A Versatile Blog on Fire.

The rules are as follows: write seven things about yourself and then pass the award on to 10 other bloggers. Let us commence...

1. I love to sleep. When I wake up in the morning I am already excited about going to bed that night. I am all, "goodbye pillow, I will see you very very soon."

2. I have been with my husband for 13 years. Yes, we started dating when when were infants.

3. I hate animal movies. They always make me cry, and I don't need that. I know what you are thinking. Not even Seabiscuit? Nope, under no circumstances will I ever watch a horse movie. "But it was critically acclaimed," you say to yourself. I don't give a #$% if Seabiscuit himself accepted an Oscar in a horse tuxedo. Not seeing it. And no, I will have not, nor will I ever, watch Marley and Me (spoiler alert: the dog dies. Shocker.). Related: If you tell me a sad story about an animal, you are dead to me. Make a note.

4. I love General Hospital. It is one of my many guilty pleasures. I will probably blog about this sometime. For now, just know that I am very well versed in the comings and goings of Port Charles, and am only slightly ashamed of how knowledgeable I am on the marriages of Sonny Corinthos. 

5. French Toast is my favorite food. I never actually make it, but I order it quite often when we go out to brekkie on the weekends. What makes bread better? Dip it in batter and fry it. Duh.

6. I want to travel all over the world and don't like when places are not travel friendly. I find it distressing when I hear on the news that someplace I would love to visit is in the throws of civil war. Or has been ravaged by floods. Yes, I am worried for the people, obviously. I am not a monster. But I also worry that the place may never be tourist friendly again and I will never be able to go there. For example: Egypt. They have some issues in the civil unrest department. They really need to get it together so I will not worry about dying a fiery death if I visit. Sure, it will probably be 20 years before I have the time or money to mosey over, but they need to be ready. I gots to see them pyramids before I die. Mama has a bucket list.

7. I am addicted to twitter and facebook. I totally understand it smacks of "she needs to get a life." But I do it anyway. Judge away (or don't, because I may cry if you call me out.) It started because I was home all day with an infant. Sure she was cute, but a conversationalist she was not. My computer became a way for me to see what adults were doing out in the real world. Away from spit up and crap diapers. So there, I admit it. I am an addict and there is probably an intervention somewhere in my future.

And now for the recipients...In no particular order.... Drum roll please....

1. La Dulce Vita~The Sweet Life
2. Mommys Nest
3. Poop on a Hot Tin Slide
4. Sarcasm 101
5. stark.raving.mad.mommy.
6. The Desperate Housemommy
7. yeahgoodtimes
8. Eat, Drink and Decorate
9. Life is Hard Laugh Anyway
10. Three Gals 

(no idea why my links are different colors. that is operator error.)

Some of you are probably like, "lord, another award. I am already so popular, where will I find the space for yet another one?" If that is the case, then you should call Meryl Streep. She will tell you how to handle it. (BTW, I don't feel sorry for you.) Also, please pick which award you want. Wait, I have a better idea. You all get both. Eeks, this must be how Santa feels! You're welcome lovely bloggers. Enjoy your award, link back to me, and pay it forward. 

If you need me, I will be preparing for my interview with Barbara Walters. I am sure you are familiar with the Most Intriguing People specials she occasionally does. 



  1. I sense you are not the Meryl Streep type and I appreciate that.

  2. You're the best. Thanks, I had fun with this! :D

  3. Thank you for an award I do not have to dust! I adore you Thea.

  4. Congrats to you!! I just realized I wasn't following your blog.....smh but I am now!
    Thanks for mentioning my blog among so many awesome bloggers. =)

  5. You are my twin I swear! Except GH, sorry hard out DOOL fan over here. But I guess twins must disagree every now and then.

  6. OMG, that Seabiscuit accepting in his horse tuxedo made me spit tequila all over my computer. OK. Not really. I am not drinking tequila. Actually, I'm not drinking anything, so no spitting actually occurred. However.... If I HAD been drinking tequila or anything else, it would now be all over my computer because that s*** was funny. But what the hell am I supposed to say? LOL? Whatever Internet. Thanks for taking a lovely little acronym that means "laughed out loud" and turn it into "kinda smiled." And well, I did more than kinda smiled, I didn't spit out the drink I wasn't drinking because I was laughing.

    Where was I again? Oh yeah! Thanks!!! You are too kind, really. Now... 7 random things about me, huh....

  7. I have so enjoyed delving into your LINT TRAP! Thanks for the award/s - too sweet!

  8. awww I am so honoured. Posted a link to your blog on mine. Thanks!

  9. Thanks everyone for playing along! Glad you were pleased to get a little something :)

  10. I love sleep but I don't get enough of it, lol. I am a big traveler (and travel dreamer) too. I've spent two weeks in France and a week in Venice, Italy and various places in the US. I hope to do FAR more traveling as well!

    As a comment on #6-- the hubs & I did a whirlwind tour of EuroCountry for our honeymoon...Paris, Rome, Venice, Athens, Munich, London...in 12 days. Insanity. But I was terrified by the Athens portion of our trip, because with all the gub'ment upheaval right now, I thought for sure we were going to get caught up in the middle of a riot or get stuck in the country--in a non-romance language country with a totally different alphabet, even. There was a bus/taxi driver strike the day before we got there, and an air traffic control strike the day after we left. And we did see a "riot", but it was a drive by riot with a lot of peeps on scooters w/ sparklers & chanting & throwing of flyers. We picked up flyers off the street. Free souvenirs!

    I make it sound a little scary, but it was actually my favorite place of all the places we went. Amazing food, gorgeous weather, insanely old ruins, cheap EVERYTHING, gi-normo breakfast at the hotel, and everyone speaks perfectly good English.


Comments make me happy!
