Finally, the perfect Blogging Award! Or...

Why Slick Had me Awake at 3:00 am...




A picture of Darling's smile.


Whenever I come to my blog and see your comments, it makes me smile. I often then go visit your blog (if you've got one), and read what you've got to say. Sometimes I leave comments, and I'm always interested in reading other people's comments as well. And if I see someone commenting on your blog whom I've yet to meet, well, I tend to click their name and follow the link to their blog. It's a fun, distracting way to pass the afternoon, evening, early morning when perhaps I ought to be doing something else (cleaning toilets? Never! Sleeping? Well, that's a novel idea...)

Skipping through blogland in this fashion is how I came across Slick's blog. If you read the comments left by others here yesterday, you'd have seen that Slick was among you, confessing to thinking the piglets were cute. He also requested that I not let word of that get around, but since he left the comment here, I don't see any harm in repeating it here (I promise, Slick, I won't come over to your blog and leave feedback concerning your affection for little pink piggies...really, I won't. I promise!)

Now, if you click Slick's link, I feel I must warn you in advance that Slick's blog is not for everyone. I only say that because the first post I read there was Slick telling off some woman who'd written to complain about his language. I find this interesting, myself, that people will read your blog and then send you mail to either complain or let you know they're praying for your soul. In fact, I'm a bit jealous. No one ever writes to me complaining (okay, that part I'm not jealous about) or to let me know they're praying for me. What, am I not worthy of your prayers? Are you not concerned with my soul? Humph...I'm a sinner, too, y'know...

But I digress. I didn't spend a whole lot of time in Slick's little world; I didn't watch the video of him talking to his daughter (after reading his tirade directed to the woman complaining about his language, I thought I'd rather skip that little treasure of a video.) I did, however, skip down to the post he'd left the following day where he explains exactly what a redneck gentleman he is. And he made me laugh, out loud. And as I told him, I rarely laugh out loud at people's blogs. Chuckle, giggle, yes. LOL? Well, let's just say I'm prone to typing it more than actually doing it. And I think we all know why that is. To truly LOL for me means there may be boogers on my screen.

But again...I digress. But not really, for Slick was also complaining about not receiving any blogger awards. And I thought...yeah...I didn't get a blogger award, either! Never mind that I've only been blogging for a few weeks. But Slick, well, I'm not sure how long he's been blogging, but he did make me laugh. Out loud, even. And this surely is worthy of an award.

For some strange reason, these were the thoughts running through my head at 3 am this morning. I'm sure Slick is getting a good laugh knowing that he had me awake and unable to sleep at 3 am. Something tells me not many women would admit this publicly. Go ahead, Slick, you redneck southern gentleman, give it a good guffaw. Go ahead, get it out. Now let me tell you exactly why I was thinking about you...

It occurred to me that perhaps I ought to create my own blog awards. Something special to give to those people who really get a good snot...er...snort out of me. I'll call them the Booger Blog Awards! There was a second option, of course, as when you get to be my age, and if you've got a full bladder, you run the risk of laughing so hard you pee your pants. But somehow I didn't think the Wet Undies Award would be a good one...people may get the wrong idea!
But back to boogers: Of course, I won't be sending the winners a real live booger, that would just be gross. No, I'll need to come up with some sort of cyber booger to send to people when they make me snort snot all over my keyboard. I'll have my graphic artist come up with something. Of course, I've no clue how to write html...maybe someone out there does? That way my booger can actually have a link, like other blog awards do. I think that would be neato.

But back to Slick. Dahling...since you made me laugh out loud, and since you're whining about not getting a blog award, I'd like to offer you the first ever Booger Blog Award! When the little Booger Blog Button is created, I'll send it to you to proudly post on your blog site, K? And now you know why you had me awake at 3:00 am.



Now that I've got all that off my mind, I'm headed back to bed...

Now THAT sounds interesting!!! Booger awards!!! How wonderful! I have never laughed that hard at anything, but I do nearly fall off my chair sometimes, and you are one of the ones that causes that!!

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear tracey. I should have visited earlier but have been in la-la land. Great blog! I'm looking forward to dipping into your past posts and enjoying your words and photos!

I will have to pop over and check out that blogg. I too like to read other bloggs and comments. Have a great weekend.

Slick said...

Awww, sorry I kept you up so late...but if you laughed, my job is completed!

You're right, my site isn't for everyone and I do tend to get a few emails telling me so but that one lady attacked my wit. Big "no-no".

So, am I nominated right off the bat??!

I do like this site because it seems so down to earth and honest. I like that!

This may post 100 times because everytime I click publish, it doesn't do anything.

Slick said...

Oooohhh, I see I'm gonna get the first ever award!! :)

It'll proudly be shown

Betty said...

Very interesting post today!

Thanks for dropping by. My friend Roselyn is a treasure......

Tracey said...

Thank you so much, Pea, for creating a Booger Blog Button! That was just entirely too much fun; I hope Slick appreciates it, lol!

Betty, you must forgive us here today...just a little sleep deprived and somewhat sill(ier) than usual. I suggest going back a few days to the dating diaries in order to get a real feel for the reason behind the award =) I'm not sure your dear friend Roselyn would approve...however, my grandmother did get a kick out of it, so perhaps???

RoseMary said...

Good for Slick! Get some sleep, girl--we need you to keep up your strength so you can keep us entertained!

Rebekah said...

Funny! Nope, I don't want it either. Although, here in the South, a term of endearment is actually "Sugar Booger." Maybe I'd take that one...

Kahshe Cottager said...

What fun I have reading your blog - it really brightens my day!

Beach Girl said...

Thanks for bringing a smile to my face! That post was great. It's been a long hard week at Yahweh's Retreat but wellness is just around the corner. Smiles are always good medicine, so thanks for the Rx! :-)
