Who Fab? You Fab!!

Hey Ya'll!!

I really do miss ya...and it's something else catching up with everyone. Sometimes life just gets in the way, and the ole blog suffers. I just haven't been around the computer lately, but I'm hoping that will change soon.

Anyway......

I was given a homework assignment.... by no other than my bloggy friend, Phillipia, over at Writes Phillipia.

Yep.....I'm 45 years old, and I still get homework. That's okay...I'm just about ready to pass it along. So, no snickering from you! hehe

See, here's the thing. She has passed on the fabulous blog award to me!! woo hoo!! Despite the fact that I haven't been able to post much lately... but you know, there's always a catch. There's always work to be done. Yep, you guessed it..... you always gotta work for it. Soooooooo, here goes.......

In order to receive this Fabulous Blogger Award (see above), I must first disclose five of my obsessions..... and then pass it on to five of my fav bloggers. (sigh) Well.... here goes:

1: My grandbabies. Yes, I AM old enough to have three grandkids... 8, 5, and 3. They are the loves of my life. All you young mothers and fathers out there, just hang in there. Much as you love your kids, grandkids are so much more fun!! Believe it or not.

2: I don't know if this is an obsession, but when I'm stuck in it, it really feels like it. I absolutely HATE sitting in traffic. I mean.... H-A-T-E it. I would NEVER survive in a bigger city.... Nope, I'd have a traffic stroke.

3: Probably the only thing I HATE worse than sitting is traffic.....is MORNINGS! I have said it before and I'll say it 'til the day I die... I absolutely HATE getting up in the morning. I think I was meant to be a night worker, but I guess I missed my calling.

4: Wow, I never expected to disclose my one and only OCD tendency on my blog.....but here goes. I think almost everyone has SOMETHING they don't even realize they obsess about. It's just one of those stupid little things that runs through your mind with dirty boots making you wonder if you really are nuts. Mine would be: When I am walking down a sidewalk, (which I do every day to and from work)... for whatever reason, I tend to notice the sidewalk lines. Not that "step on a crack, break your mother's back" ever meant anything to me, but for some reason my idiot mind notices if one foot steps on three or four...... because now it's ON..... NOW, the other foot has to step on a couple or so to catch up. Okay....I'm really not crazy.... really!! lol Although there must be days when people wonder WTF is up with that woman over there...... brings to mind a dog chasing his tail, doesn't it?

5: Last but not least..... parking spots. Unlike Phillipia and Cat Lady Larew, pull-through spots don't mean much to me. However... Yes, I am admitting it now... that I am one of those IDIOTS who drive round and round to find a good parking spot. Honestly, walking through the grocery store parking lot with a cart full of stuff these days is like walking through a demolition derby with a "bet ya can't hit me" sign on your back.... Yeah, it really is that bad...

WHEW!!!! Damn, this homework bulloney is ..... exhausting!!

Well, I will accept my esteemed award now.....

And at the same time, pass it on to a few of my other fav blogs!!!

If you don't want it, then just pass it by..... and if you do, ENJOY!!! I love all of my followers and blogger buddies. Thanks for coming by.

So, here goes!! Five great blogs that you should hop over and see what's good for a chuckle or a laugh:

1: ThinkinFyou: This lady is FUNNY. Check her out.

2: Check out my friend over at Sanity On Edge... She will tickle your funny bone.

3: Tricia....and Tigger.... over at Too Cute to Live... There are way too many cutiepies over there.... and SOMEONE has to stop Tigger from world domination!!

4: I was GOING to honor Skye with this award, but it seems he already has it..... So, Skye, know you were thought of... Instead: Just Amy! Tag, you're it!

5: Finally, Canadian Blend...hop on over and take a peek at the life and times of the American guy and the Canadian gal.

Now that I've bestowed these deserving bloggers with this esteemed award, I gotta get back to work!!

Onward and... um... just Onward!!!

Knucklehead said...

Hey Winky.

This is Chris from the blog formerly known as M-ville (the Buffett song?) . . . gotta stay undercover here.

Anyway, since I see the old blog is still on your roll (and you're not following the NEW one yet, ahem, ahem) I'll give you the info...

The new site is www.knuckleheadhumor.com

Same wackiness, new name. Hope to see you soon!

Wayne: Hehe...spoken by a true non-blogger.

CatLadyLarew said...

Well done Winky! I also find myself avoiding cracks in the sidewalk... not that I care about my mom's spinal cord, it's just that I know an earthquake will start and the sidewalk will split right at the crack and suck me in and then I'll die. Just sayin'.

I'll save a parking spot for you! (If Phillipa doesn't cut you off in traffic and get there first.) ;-)

Winky Twinky said...

Knucklehead: Hey thanks for popping in!! I had gathered that you were gone....or something. I appreciate you telling me where to find you...I'll be on over in a little bit to check out the new digs...

Winky Twinky said...

CatLady: Wow, I didn't know that's what started earthquakes... I'll definitely have to be more careful from now on. BTW, thanks for the parking spot...you know how Phillipia is...

nonamedufus said...

Winky Twinky said...

Phillipia said...

Hey, give me back my parking spot!

Glad to see you back winky...and glad you will be blogging more - well glad for us anyway;)

Tim Higgins said...

WT,

Glad to see you back at blogging and sorry that you had to do homework upon your return.

Don't worry about hanging around computers. They don't take the lack of visitation personally.

Nooter said...

Winky Twinky said...

Just Amy: You're welcome...sniff

Nooter: Awwww, that's something I've always wondered about... how 'bout if I give you a snak?

Canadian Blend said...

Thanks Winky.

Like you, I've been sort of a poor blogger lately. I promise to be better, however.
