Dagnydarling's Blog

I’d Like to Thank the Academy… of Bloggers. Well, only the good ones. Not the weird ones who write about porn and/or the environment.

I got an award.  For blogging (from THIS girl).  Which means a number of things— primarily though that people actually READ my blog which is sa-weeeet!  Also it means that I am not crazy, which is always a little bit of a fear of mine, and it means that I have to do some stuff and keep on sending this bad boy around to keep the good joo-joo going.

 

As a receiver of the Stylish Blogger Award, I have to do the following:

  • Present seven facts about myself.
  • Name half dozen bloggers I think deserve the award. Contact those people.
  • Create a link back to the person who gave you the honor.

Now for the facts about me…. I bet you’re ready to pass out from anticipation.

  1. I wanted to be a gynocologist growing up.  Then I realized I wasn’t very good at science, and the reason my grades were so good was because I was a superb bull-shitter (still am)… but nobody wants someone who is just pretending to be good at their job when their job is telling you you might, just maybe, it sort of looks like, herpes.
  2. I’m adopting.  I’m having my own little ones as well.  Non-negotiable.
  3. I work in politics, as a legislative staffer…. and it’s a weird job.  I make sure my boss (elected official) doesn’t get himself in trouble, I make him sound smart, look good and seem like the second-coming.  And sometimes that’s cool… sometimes it’s exhausting… like today.
  4. Biggest fear: being left behind.  Being abandoned.  Winding up alone…. also, winding up fat.
  5. I don’t re-wear socks.  I throw them away.  I don’t know why.
  6. I live out of my car, and this seems to work fine for me.  Not for people who try to ride in my passenger seat and get a spiked stiletto up the ass.
  7. Funny trumps all.  A funny guy trumps a hot guy.  A funny conversation trumps a tough one.  A funny day trumps a shitty week.  Funny will always win… the way to my heart is definitely through my… hm… this was a poorly thought out phrase.  Shit.  Anyway, make me laugh and I’ll love you forever.

And now I get to pass the lovely award on!  This was hard because I follow some pretty impressive bloggers, who undoubtedly have received many an honor from many a junior blogger.  But I’m gonna go ahead and throw em another kudos, because I’m generous like that.  Also, because I’m very tired and don’t want to peruse the internet in search of some up and coming bloggers when I already know a bunch of super-studly ones.  Like the following:

**I’ve been completely neglecting my blog lately.  Which makes me sad.  And because now we know people other than my mom are reading this, I assume those people are sad, too.  (key word: assuming).  I have plenty to write.  PLENTY.  Like hickeys.***

    Two things-
    First: I hate socks! But I need to know, how much money do you spend on socks if you throw them away?
    Second: Thanks for mentioning my blog! You are the BOMB. And so is your fabulous blog 🙂

    Congrats. I quietly follow because although I am way too old to lead your lifestyle, I did it 20 years ago and it’s fun to see it again with 20 years ago on the experiences.

      You’re a peach Jean…. And while this lifestyle is fun, it’s very tiring… I hope I grow out of it. *fingers crossed*

    We are definitely sad when you neglect your blog because you are freakin’ hilarious! Thanks for the shout-out, love. 🙂

    Wait, you always throw out your socks? Like… always?
    P.S. Great list. 🙂
