I got my first blogging award!!!

Man...  After months and months of blogging I FINALLY got and award.  (Now I know how Susan Lucci must have felt. (Surely, someone out there will get that reference.))  Here is my sparkling award in its beautiful display case.

But with great reward comes great responsibility.  So here are the rules for accepting the reward:

The Sunshine Award: The Sunshine Blog Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blog world. The rules for accepting the award are:
     1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post
     2. Pass the award to 5 bloggers
     3. Link the nominees within your post
     4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog
     5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award
     6. Share 5 things about yourself

The award is forcing me to tell 5 things about myself.  And since I only have a few readers, I'm not too worried about the fallout of over-share. So here are 5 things about me.

1. I hate almost ALL musicals (especially RENT (Cartoons are excluded from the hatred.).) even if I absolutely LOVE the soundtrack. There's something about everyone knowing the same song and choreography at a moments notice that really freaks me out... BIG TIME!

2. Me and cats do NOT get along... EVER.  I've never met one I liked.  I'm not cruel to them (anymore).  But when I see any cat we immediately have a mutual understanding that this friendship thing is just not gonna work. (I'm 100% convinced that is the reason why cats try to snuggle up next to me. Just to push my buttons!)

3. I often wonder what would happen to someone if you leaned in face-to-face with them while they were sleeping and you yelled out, "YEAH!!!!!!!" as loud as you could.  I would never do it but I spend a lot of time thinking about it.

4. I would love to have a pet kangaroo if for no other reason than to use the pouch to carry my laptop.  I'm just gonna leave it at that.

5. When I was in elementary school I used to have a nice size and shaped afro (It was sweet! I could show you pics but I'm not.).  One day we were playing kickball and I felt something land in my hair.  When I reached my hand up to feel what it was there was nothing there.  I found out later that a bird had pooped in my hair but my fro was so nice the poop bounced off my hair and landed on my shoulder.  Up to this point I'm sure only a handful of people knew that.  But thanks goes to Lilly @ A Pre-Life Crisis (a very funny blog) for sending me this award and making me bring up bad things that I had long since suppressed! I guess it's back to therapy for me.

Here are 5 other bloggers you should check out when you get a free moment...

1. Mocha Dad - He has a very witty and insightful blog about fatherhood and other everyday issues.  And he is a fellow Dad-Blogs blogger so he gets much props.
2. A Mother's Life. Uncensored and Uncut - A personal friend of my who has a site that is funny and sometimes has a little bit of grit to it.
3. Miscellaneous from Missy - This site is more of a literary walk in the park with a friend you know than a blog.
4. Fragrant Liar - I'm sure she get a million of these but she deserves it.  Her site always leaves me in stitches.
5. Juggling Eric - This is another site from the Dad-Blogs community.  I go here often for few laughs as well.

I would like to thank my fans (all 6 of you)  for making this award possible.  And if for some reason I'm not able to fulfill the duties of a Sunshine Award Winner I understand the crown will be passed to someone far less deserving and who has been secretly (maybe not so secretively) waiting for me to screw up.  Tough luck #2. There's always next year, Mrs. Lucci!
