Have I Got a Deal for You

Dawn cheated. Yes, she did, she was given an award, told to pass it along to five bloggers, and ... well, like I said, she cheated. Three bloggers were hit, er gifted, with her largess and yours truly was one of them. Thanks Dawn .

You can find Dawn here. Dawn's not only breaking the rules, she's busy dropping bloggy F-bombs at  Lighten Up Weber

So what's the point you ask?

Quit yawning, I'm typing as fast as I can. When Dawn cheated, ok cheated is a little harsh, let's say, when Dawn got creative and changed the rules, she put me in an awkward spot. Yep, she did.

# 1. Dawn's a rule breaker.

# 2. She colors outside the line.

# 3. Her dog sits on the couch.

Oh wait, I digress. The original rules instructed the awardee to spill five personal tidbits. I'd like to do that, really I would, but Dawn reset the parameter to three and Dawn's my idol, so three it is.


# 1. I never break the rules. Hey, pink hi-tops don't count and word got back to my supervisor, so no pink, no personality, no more standing on the furniture and repacking the overhead bins. People you're on your own and you'll like it.

# 2. I paint inside the lines. Uhuh, those odd spots of color on the ceiling are decorative.

# 3. My dog does not sit on the couch. He did, but he's too old to jump down, so couch sitting is for special occasions.

That's three right?

Excellent, so here comes the fun, or in Wily's case the revenge.

Splendid blogger # 1. Wily B Cool whose busy with bithdays, but never too busy for a visit.

Which leads me to Michelle My Belle blog pick # 2. I found her through an award list and enjoy her spirit. (See, these things work.)

And  # 3. Kat  She came to my blog and made me cry. I don't cry, I didn't have kleenex, but Kat's all heart and someday she'll find me on the doorstep of her dairy farm. Hey, I like cows!

So there you go. Follow in Dawn's footsteps and do things in threes or be conventional and revert to fives but whatever you do, visit a fellow blogger and say hello.

    1. Interpretation of the rules is three quarters of the battle.

  3. Can you pick me up on the way to Kat's? A dairy farm is pretty much my dream house, so maybe she'd adopt me or hire me to milk cows (I'm a quick study) or something.

  6. Your supervisor obviously didn't have much personality, to stifle yours that way!

  7. If you can’t break a rule or two in life, what’s the point? And hey, "odd spots of color" on the ceiling (or hither and thither) is actually my entire decorating repertoire! I always enjoy myself on your blog, Kelly! x

    1. Makes you wonder about the guys behind the rule. Hither and thither, spoken like a true faery (with an exceptional blog).

  10. Hey, the party is at my house! Just let me know when you and Beth will be here! Thank you so much. I'm not sure I can come up with even 3 things that are as interesting or as entertaining as your 3. No more pink shoes! How am I going to recognize you if I ever see you in an airport!!! Love you! Hugs!

    1. I'm entertaining the thought of a wild apron with tiers of polka dot ruffles. Interesting stuff? I listed paint spots on the ceiling. Love you right back Kat. Now about that party ...

  11. You must have a tiny old dog like I have. Good thing she is too small to get on the sofa because she would probably break one of old bones if she ever jumped off the sofa. (she is 16 now) I have a younger dog, but her legs are too short. So...no dogs sit on my couch...LOL

    I followed you to Dawn's blog. OMG! She is hilarious. I'm going to follow you around because you know all the really funny bloggers!!!

    1. Simon's 28 pounds of llasa apso-terrier. Mom refers to him as a Tibetan Terrorist and until he made an unauthorized death defying leap from the sofa, he had a ramp. Old dogs, gotta love em.

      Dawn's great. Glad you wandered over!

  12. Jon walked by and saw the picture for your post and said, "Great picture! Let's try it! You grab my nose!" and then before I could turn around from my computer to take advantage of a free nose tweak, ran out the door, laughing, evilly. And now, I have an insatiable urge to tweak someone's nose. It's going to be an interesting day at the grocery store.

    1. The tweakee is my dad. I have the best file of old family photos and it seems there are no shrinking violets in my gene pool. Tweak the first coworker that sees you laughing at the melons, then go home, smile sweetly and get even with Jon.

  13. Just wanted you to know I haven't forgotten my award. I just haven't had time to pick it up and do it justice. I will though, I promise! Thanks again.

    1. No worries Kat. These awards are a bit time consuming. :)

  14. Aw! I just heart you to death. You pimped me good up there! You pimped me long time! BTW Suzie has made her own decision to sit on the couch. That bitch. This decision is not the decision of the Dawn management.
    I bet you're just the most badass flight attendant ever. :)
