... and I do believe I need another one. There is just one tiny little problem, I have no idea how to go about it.
I am honored to be nominated yet again for the Smoking Typewriter award by my favorite Blonde Fiona. :) Thank you so much. My typewriter really truly must be smoking. I already posted the Typewriter last week... AND I passed it on to a few other lovely bloggers, so I won't do it again. A big, fat virtual hug to you. :)
But, yet another award is bestowed upon me by way of Shady Lady. Thank you, my friend.
Interestingly it's called the Lemonade award for people with gratitude or attitude.
I believe I have a little bit of both to offer. As a matter of fact, I drove to Arby's today for a quick lunch and had to find out, that their menu has changed. The kids meals no longer include turkey/ham sandwiches. Instead the lovely brood gets to choose between Roastbeef Burger and Popcorn Chicken. I ordered three regular Marketplace sandwiches without the fries and drinks instead. As I drove up to the window, I asked the guy, if their new motto was "Make America fat", to which the poor lad replied, he really doesn't have any control over it. Of course I am quite aware of that fact, and I told him as much. And yet, who, if not the sales guy am I going to tell, that I'm disappointed? One can only hope, that with enough protest from people like me, they'll reconsider their decision to take the one good thing off the menu and put it right back where it belongs. The guy did recommend to contact arbys.com, and I believe I will... maybe... if I have time.
As for gratitude. I am indeed quite grateful, dear reader. I have so much to be grateful for. Being alive is probably one of the greatest things of them all. Imagine all the other dead eggs and sperm and all. That makes me one lucky chick, if I say so myself. Of course I'm also grateful for many other things, such as my bigger than life computer screen, chocolate, DVR, and cheap long distance calls.
Oh, and of course I'm not as shallow as a little puddle, and I'm also grateful for my house, my mom and dad, my husband, my children, my brother, my fantabulous friends, and for everything that makes my life (mostly) worth living. (Let's try to forget sleepless nights and crappy moods as a consequence of that. THAT SUCKS!!)
Oh, digressing again, am I?
Back to the award... the Lemonade award (anybody else think that's a little weird?):
The rules of the award are as follows:
1) Put the logo on your blog or post. (check)
2) Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.
3) Link to your nominees within your post.
4) Let the nominees know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5) Share the love and link to the person from who you received your award. (and check)
Okay, so here's a bit of attitude for you. I'm breaking the rules starting at 2).
I'm not going to nominate 10 blogs, because, quite honestly, I think that all the blogs I'm reading offer lots of attitude and gratitude. So, instead of passing it on to 10 blogs I love, I ask you to pick up this award, if you feel you deserve it, want it badly enough, and are simply dying to put it in your sidebar (may it burst like mine).
