I'm talking about pens, here, guys. Pens.
|I managed to find my favorite Faber Castell pens in Hobby Lobby recently.|
Please stop staring at my strangely shaped thumb
I can tell you aren't nearly excited enough about this.
Maybe you don't know what can be done with gray pens. Your ignorance pains me.
For example, you can make a lot of dots and draw a picture of the scary thing in the woods using thousands upon thousands of dots.
Want to know why I haven't been blogging lately?
I was making dots.
|Move over, Pisarro. I have gray pens and I am not afraid to use them.|
The title of this piece is, "I Know, Let's Go for a Hike in the Scary Woods".
I was also traveling for work last week in sunny California. I had to pretend to be a Responsible Adult for four days in a row, while my brain kept trying to get me arrested (It puts the wallet in the basket, or it gets the security pat down from TSA again). It was pretty stressful, and I spent most of my free time there playing my ukulele.
Why yes, I do play the ukulele. And I bring it with me when I travel. And take it with me through airport security.
|Ukuleles are cool.|
I was so busy making dots and keeping my damned mouth shut, that I failed to keep up with my imaginary friends here in the blogoverse.
It turns out that while I was away, I won some awards.
What the hell, y'all? It's like you want to hear what I have to say or some shit.
The first award is from Erica over at Touch of Embellishment. Erica is one of those overachievers that actually illustrates her blog (just like almost everyone wishes they could), and is ridiculously funny on a regular basis. She consistently makes me laugh, and also makes me think I should be doing more with my blog:
She has nominated me for the "Beautiful Blogger Award", which makes me incredibly happy in so many ways. Thank you so very much.
The second award that I received while I was out gallivanting around the countryside is from BeeBee at Beebee's Blog. She is the only blogger I have ever seen who has illustrated a picture of her unicorn impaling Chuck Norris in a single blow. Seriously. Thank you, BeeBee.
So both of these awards have all these rules and things, but I thought it might be fun to just combine these into the single most awesome blog award of all time.
I call it the:
I Want to Wear Your Head for a Hat Award:
It might not be quite as prestigious as the "Your Skin Would Make a Nice Rain Coat" award, but this one is still full of awesome.
- Link back to the person who tagged you. Say what you will. It doesn't have to be nice. Just know that I will find you.
- Run like hell and hope that that crazy bitch who is following you doesn't saute your tongue in a butter and garlic sauce.
Wait wait. That isn't right. That should read, "that crazy bitch that 'joined' you in Google Friend Connect."
Or circled you... or whatever the hell these crazy kids do these days.
Aw, fuck it.
- Nominate some OTHER bloggers and ensure that they will never sleep again.
Were you nominated? Hrm. Let's see. Is your blog over on the right there, under "Stuff I Read"?
Is anyone else hungry for some fava beans and a nice chianti? Is it wrong that I'd rather have beer?
