It's a Major Award!

So the wonderful Whiskey Girl gave me an award which is a fancy way of tagging me for an Internet meme (is that the right word?), I think. But I totally appreciate it because I never win awards so I will promptly begin bragging about this.

I am supposed to tell you 10 things about me that you don't know. I'm just going to put this out there right now: I've been writing this thing for 4 and a half years, and there is not much you don't know about me. So this is just going to be a random list of 10 things. Also I'm supposed to award 10 other people and have them do this, but I am horrible and probably won't do that either. Seriously my laziness is disgusting.

1. I love the show iCarly on Nickelodeon. It's for little kids of which I have none. I have no defense for this except the show is freaking hilarious, Spencer is adorable (he's the adult on the show so I'm not creepy) and Keith and John (37 year old men) are the ones who told me to watch it because it was so good. And Keith doesn't even have any kids.

2. As you know, I suffer from migraines. In fact last night and this morning I was/am suffering from a doozy so I just want to crawl into the backseat of my car and cry. Anyway migraine pain doesn't always hurt in the same exact place so I give names to all the different pain configurations. Examples:
- The Sunglasses - all in my sinus and eye area.
- The Crown - all around my head in a circle.
- The Vice - on both sides of my head, mostly in my temples.
- The Yarmulke - the top of my head.
- The Brick Wall - the back of my head. I call it this because it feels like the back of my head is against a brick wall and someone is pushing my head into it as hard as they can.
- The Frontal Lobe - all up front but not behind my eyes.

Today's debilitating migraine features The Frontal Lobe.

3. My favorite day ever in the whole world is the Krusty's Summer Sauce Camp party to benefit the Malachi House. Well guess what, gang-it's Krusty's time again! Saturday, August 1st is the big day, and I am literally counting down the days. Clevelanders, read about the Malachi House and their amazing mission and then go to the Krusty's site and take a look at the flier to find out where to buy tickets. To my new readers, you can read about Krusty's here, here and here.

4. I am allergic to mango. You guys might already know that, but I am too lazy to go back to try and find it.

5. A couple Fridays ago John and I took a half day and went golfing and on the last hole: I BIRDIED. I mothereffing birdied! First time ever! I jumped up and down, told some weirdo feral child with a seeping open wound on his torso who decided to hang out with us on the last hole that he was my lucky charm and made John hug me.

6. I've never seen "The Godfather". I always make plans to watch it, but then I see that it's really long so I never do. Am I a communist?

7. I love, love, love Nat King Cole. His voice is unbelievable. They just don't make them like that anymore.

8. I am really good at putting on makeup, but I match my eyeshadow to my clothes. Girls know this is a big no-no in the makeup/fashion world. But I can't help it. I know that makes me the equivalent of a 13 year old putting on makeup for the first time, but seriously-it matches!! Matching is pretty!

9. Every day I think of a job I would rather be doing. Yesterday's was bartender at a swim up bar. Today's is makeup artist (because of #8). This is probably not a healthy thing to do, but neither is binge drinking and I do that all the time. That's a pretty solid argument.

10. The shirt I'm wearing at work today is so inappropriate I should probably be dancing with a totem pole on the roof of Velvet Dog right now. Which I may or may not have done multiple times in my early to mid 20's. And once last year.

You're totally a communist! :)

I can give you one better, though. I own all three Godfather movies, and have never seen the second or third. So, I am totally a communist too.

Do you get a rash around your mouth from mangoes? Becuase they have the same chemical as poison ivy and poison sumac. People apparently also sometimes get mouth rashes from pacifiers. I'm just saying.

I learned this from a girl at my old job who got mango dermatitis and also wore a lot of inappropriate shirts.

"The Frontal Lobe - all up front but not behind my eyes."..... That's just the way I like it.

Cleveland playhouse is doing their summer movies in two weeks. Godfather is playing. You can go with me to see it, I have never watched it either. You are more likely to see your stupid muppets show but the offer still stands. -steph

I cannot believe that Steph just used the words "stupid" and "muppet" in the sentence.

sharda said...

in the SAME sentence.

If it's the skin rash, you're only allergic to the skin, you can eat the fruit. I learned that living in Florida.

I've never seen The Godfather. Every guy I've ever dated in my whole life has said, "You've never seen The Godfather?!? We must watch it immediately!" But then we never get around to it, leaving me to suspect that it's one of those movies that everyone says is wonderful, but no one really ever wants to actually watch.

I can't believe everyone is all concerned with mangoes and the godfather when there is a WEIRDO FERAL CHILD WITH AN OPEN SEEPING WOUND ON HIS TORSO just WANDERING AROUND on the golf course.

I am shocked you never have seen the Godfather! It's a good "Hey, I'm planning on laying on my couch for 3 hours and I need something to watch movie." If you're really into mob stuff, it's like a prerequisite or something.

I love iCarly. And not only do I not have any kids, but I'm older than you.

I sat with my 18-year-old friends on holiday watching CBBC, the children's version of the BBC. It's because we're cool.

And the more inappropriate the top, the more appropriate it is to wear it.

I've never seen the Godfather either and i'm allergic to pears and have migraines.. i think we may be relatives.

Fizzgig said...

Gina said...

I love iCarly, too. I do have kids, so I can blame them, but really, I love it, and I'm old.
