Warning: May Cause Drowsiness

If you came over expecting a literary masterpiece, y'all are about to be sorely disappointed. While I do have fantastic news for me to share, I'm still goofy on Zyrtec, so there is absolutely no telling what I will disclose here. All I ask is that you don't tell me tomorrow that I made a fool out of myself tonight!

I really wanted to get all of this posted before too much more time passed. I would hate to think that these sweet ladies didn't know how much I appreciate them! Besides...when have y'all ever known me to pass up an opportunity to talk about myself? LIKE NEVER!!!

Pam at One Gal's Trash gave me this award last week and I am so grateful. I'm not blowing smoke up y'alls dresses...I really am! Every time someone takes the time to give out an award (and it does take a lot of time with all the links!), leave me a comment, become a follower or just pops in to see what's cooking, makes me happy! With only the dog to talk to during the day...it's nice to know y'all are out there just waiting for a cup of coffee and a sitdown! (Although I have noticed there are a lot of Diet Dr. Pepper drinkers out there and you know I only keep Coke in the house!) I'd be a fool to not take the time to say thank you PLUS my mother would never forgive me. She taught me to always say thank you for gifts received and what finer present is there than friendship?

So Pam, thank you so much for taking the time to include me on your list. That's the kind of list I'm proud to be on....'cause girl, I've been on some doozies before...namely Cat Daddy's!
Then if that wasn't enough, Angelique (I don't know how to type that little accent mark in her name, but believe me, there is one. How cool is that? I think I'll start putting one on the Talking part of my name too! Help me y'all...I am really starting to drift now!) as I was saying...Angelique at Six In One Hand tagged me also. I KNOW! What makes me so special? I ask myself that every day. I don't know if the intent was to make me feel like I rock the house...but these girls sure did! Included in this tag were the instructions to list seven things about myself. Good grief...is there anything I haven't told y'all about me besides my bra size?

Let's just see what I can come up while under the influence...allergy meds, y'all!

  1. I believe in one God in Heaven who controls my every thought and action. If I try to go against His plan for me...things never turn out right. Therefore, I leave it all in His hands and I sleep at night knowing everything will be fine and as it should be.
  2. I like a good, cold, dry, dirty martini....shaken not stirred. While this may seem to some to be a contradiction to number one, God knows and I see no reason to lie about it.
  3. Being a child of the 60's, I hate underwear, but have no fear. Due to the passing of time and gravity taking it's toll on certain parts of my anatomy, I no longer go commando....but I still hate underwear!
  4. I just recently learned what a caper is. It's nice to be able to still learn anything at my age!
  5. When I had my ears pierced at 16, I went to our family doctor and had him deaden my earlobes. The idea of someone using ice cubes and a diaper pin scared the heck out of me. He even sterilized my earrings before placing them in my ears! So much for walking on the wild side, right?
  6. With my very first paycheck, I bought my sister a 4' black light from Spencer's Gifts...which we still have and still works! The light has never been replaced. Try getting that out of bulbs these days!
  7. I've sang with a choir in the Cotton Bowl and was in the candlelight parade all four years of high school....and always behind the horses!

I'm supposed to tag seven more blogs, but I'm going to encourage y'all to visit these instead mainly because I don't think I can stay awake much longer to list 'em and also because I want you to take your time reading theirs. All three of these ladies are great reads. They all are well written with humor and junk...always a winning combination in my book! Pam has some fun reads about letters from famous people including Peter Jennings and Angelique was a beauty queen for goodness sake! How many of us can say that...only in my mind! If that isn't enough to get you hooked, Angelique is also having a giveaway...Woo Hoo!

Now I know what you're thinking...she said three! That's right. I know how to count...I'm not that out of it. I also wanted to thank Gale at Wizard of Once Was! She sent me a package for Bella and while I didn't open the gifts, I did take a photo of the presentation. Take a look below...how can Jenn possible tear into such beautiful gift wrapping? Sometimes the gift is just the thought that went into preparing it...like this. I don't possess this talent. I am lucky if I get it into a box and taped shut without hurting myself. I'm not envious...well, maybe just a little. This is just not something I am good at, but I sure can appreciate those, like Gale, who are! Thank you so much Gale.

Well, what do you know? Even while doped up, I still managed to crank out over 250 words. Now remember...you're not to tell me if I said anything stupid...you're not to point out any grammatical errors...and for gosh sakes, if I said your instead of you're...don't tell me!

Hey Miss Deb , you did great. I understood every word you said. You're not going to believe this , when I was in the 6th grade my Mom had the Dr pierce my ears also. Of course this was after a horrible Home ear piercing attempt on the kitchen table. OUCH!! I'm off to check out the blogs. xoxo , Sue

What is it with us 50-somethings? When I get home the first thing I do is get into something comfortable, usually some comfy workout clothes, but heaven forbid that I have to answer the door. Because I can't stand to wear a bra. If the Fed Ex or UPS guy shows up I have to hide and stick my head out! Oh well, TMI. I guess I was just legitimizing your way of thinking. I won't sign my name to this comment. ha

Even under the influence of either drugs or CD, you still manage to make me laugh! I'm glad you are feeling a tad bit better. Rest and let CD wait on you for the whole weekend! Doctor's orders...

I wasn't even on drugs last night so I have no excuse, other than a big mouth. Sorry girls, hope no boys are reading these comments! I guess this is what happens when you grow up in "the country" with no one around!

Tamis said...

You are a hoot!

Just between you, me and a fencepost I used to love martinis the same way you do. Until that one night I had a few too many. Now I have to drink something else, darn, huh? oh well, I have moved on and love myself a mojito or lemontini any old day of the week.

Commando? Bet Cat Daddy loved you!~

Sue said...

I got my ears pierced the same way you did with ice cubes for numbing, and I have big ears, it hurt like hell!! I'm off to Woodstock now, the movie that is! Hope you feel better soon! You know, you should have been drinking the martini's when you were getting your ears pierced!

Frippery said...

I hope the zyrtec is making you feel better. ( of course a nice cold Martini might be better) You deserve all that attention because you are "All that!"

Barbara said...

Deb, Yep Zyrtec makes us feel strange and sometimes we write stuff...but your stuff made sense and I didn't find any terrible errors.
Congrats on award...by the way I got your blog straighten out on my blog list, sorry about that.

Hope you are feeling better and have a great weekend.

Tootsie said...

I loved your dopey post...I did one a few months ago...and the whole blog land laughed at me- when I read it the next day...I was ashamed and amazed that I wasn't wearing my bra on the outside (it was that stupid!)

cindy said...

Ohmygosh! LOL. Where to start, where to start...ok, going commando that must stop at a certain age...all I can say is, I hear ya Sista! Right there with ya! LOL. Number 1, you betcha! Number 2, same here, only a Margarita! :D And as for number 7, yep, shoulda had a tee back then, that read, "If ya lead the Parade, don't forget to look down every once and awhile for Pooh, or Doo!"...been there, done that! :D
