It’s Not Nice to Make an Old Battleaxe Cry! Dammit People!

I am going to put each and every one of you over my knee! Yep, you need to do like I used to do when I was a kid and try and find a pillow you can strap to your ass because I’M COMIN’ FOR YA!

Okay, I’m not actually going to spank anyone (for free, at least), but you need to know how much all of these lovely awards mean to me. That you guys would take the time to include me just gives me the warm fuzzies. I appreciate you all so very, very much!!!

Something that has not changed about me–ever, is that I’m terrible at following the rules. So, I’m quite positive that my post will not meet all of the award requirements, but here they are for those that I’m sending the awards to:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their site.
  2. Nominate other people (you choose how many–whatever makes you happy).
  3. Write some bad ass things about yourself.

I think those are all the rules, though I’m quite sure I screwed them up.

I’ve mentioned this before but I wanna say it again: I nominate all kinds of people. Sometimes, I even disagree with what they have to say, but that’s the great thing about blogging: everyone has a voice. I simply love that!! πŸ™‚

Here are the amazing blessings given to me in the last couple of months by some seriously incredible people who you should immediately follow and love like I do:

All of these awards mean so very much to me. I really cannot express my gratitude to all of you for being so kind. I hope that all of you stop by and follow their blogs as you will find some incredible people there with great stories and much to share.

Since I always let it all hang out anyway, none of this stuff will likely surprise you, but I stole the 7 Things About Me list from Mondrak and will tell you 7 things about my silly self.

Here goes!

  1. I have two well-hidden tattoos.
  2. The hubby and I are renovating the entire house. This weekend, it’s the dining room cabinets. Kill me, please.
  3. I like playing with eye boogers. I know. GROSS!!! The ones with an eyelash or cat hair stuck in them are particularly fun. Now, real boogers are ICKY gross and I ban them from the earth. But eye boogers? Totally fun.
  4. If I could live in a log cabin, way out in the woods, I would. (As long as there was a Circle K within 5 minutes.)
  5. I currently have 22 teddy bears on my sofa. Yep, the freak show continues.
  6. I met Oprah when I was little, when she was still on local Baltimore/Washington TV. She told me I looked like Brooke Shields (it was the un-plucked eyebrows, I’m quite sure!)
  7. I’m addicted to having a pair of cuticle nippers in every room in the house. Also, in my car. I love nippers. They can do anything.

Thank you again, so very, very much for the amazing awards. My heart is officially warmed!!! Love you guys!!!

  1. Soooo many awards. Well, what can I say? You deserve them Jodi. You make people laugh, you cheer people up when they are down. Hell, you even help people to have sex lol.

    And thank you πŸ™‚


    • I know! My heart was just overwhelmed with all the love! Thanks for the sweet words, my dear. You always bring such a smile to my face. Oh, and you are VERY welcome!!! You, sir, deserve awards out the wazoo! πŸ™‚ XOXOXO


          • LOL, no it’s an ongoing thing that started about 28 years ago. It’s physical so I’m on loads of painkillers every day. On Friday I decided to take my daughter and two nephews to Dover Castle which is right behind me – except up a very steep hill. The castle also has a lot of very steep steps.

            I enjoyed it, but I am still paying for it now, and probably will for a few days. My daughter has been an angel with helping me though πŸ™‚


              • Thank you. It doesn’t normally get me down. I’ll be fine in a couple of days with people like you cheering me up πŸ™‚

                Was wondering where you had got to. How many arguments were started over the cabinets? Hehe. And I also thought that read “cuticle nipples” haha


              • OUCH!!! Cuticle nipples just sounds painful for some reason. Keep the snip snip away from my boobies!!! πŸ™‚

                Luckily, the hubby and I don’t argue over stuff like that. I design. He builds. I decorate. It’s perfect! We never waste oxygen on fighting over stuff like that. It’s probably one of the reasons we still actually like one another. πŸ˜‰

                Sending your non-cooperative body happy/healthy vibes! πŸ™‚


              • Having a pierced nipple, I can guarantee it would definiteLY be painful lol

                Great marriage and understanding you have. I can see why you are so happy together.

                Thank you πŸ™‚


              • One of these days I’ll have to tell you my nipple piercing story (NOT MY BOOBS!!!). It’s horribly inappropriate.

                And yes, I am so blessed to have such a wonderful hubby and good marriage. I thank God for it every day. πŸ™‚


  2. Coming from you, this is fabulous! I always love coming over here. Thanks so much! P.s. I’m LOVING that you have modified blog award rules to suit your needs.


    • Awwww…shucks! πŸ™‚ You are SO VERY welcome!!! Thanks for the sweetness–I really appreciate it when you drop by and visit. As for the rules–screw ’em! I like to bend and break as many as I possibly can. πŸ™‚ HUGS!!


  3. Thank you thank you I accept the award with style and grace,now stop laughing because you know I have neither style or grace I can pretend can’t I………………….I also extend to you my congratulations.


  4. What’s this about “old” in your post title? Thank you for the nomination πŸ™‚ I’ll accumulate a collection of blogs to nominate, and be on to it. I resisted a cute knit teddy bear in an op shop last week. I know what will happen if I start…


    • You are a saint to question my use of the word “old.” I think I love you. πŸ˜‰ And you are very welcome! πŸ™‚ It’s nice to share the love. As for resisting teddy bears, WTF? That little teddy needed a loving home. Git yo ass back there and bring home that teddy! πŸ˜‰ Then take a picture and send it to me.

  6. Thank you for the nomination!! You really are my favourite crazy person!! I never thought as eye-lash boogers doubling as play things, but whatever works. You are obviously easily entertained. I love that you have a stuffed bear collection–actually I am assuming they are stuffed. Hoping, really. As you can tell by my blog, I have a penchant for stuffed balls of fun fur with eyes also. Mine come in the form of Ugly Dolls. And while you have your nippers, I have my tweezers. Nothing more fun than yanking out hair.


    • You are SO very welcome! Every time I even look at the name of your blog or your pics I just get so tickled. And I LOVE being your favorite crazy person. I know, I probably should have kept the eye booger thing to myself, but they are just mondo fun. πŸ™‚ As for the bears, if it weren’t for teeth and claws, I’d happily roll around on a sofa full of bears! I love me some furries! That you too have a penchant for stuffed balls of fur just warms my heart. I love the little things. We make them talk and argue and hump. It’s really quite disturbing. πŸ˜‰ Ugly dolls are awesome. I like to buy the teddies with messed up faces or mismatched ears because I worry no one else will love them. It’s nice there is another ugly furry lover out there! πŸ™‚ Oh, and tweezers rule. I should attack my face with a pair because I’ve become a unibrow as of late. NOT pretty!

  9. I might have sworn I’d left a comment here already. *puzzled head scratch* I think my phone is giving out on me. Or my brain is making stuff up in a slightly different way to when I’m writing fiction.
    ~oh dear
    Regardless… congratulations on the awards! ^_^
