A Fine Time to Blog

All the reasons I should not be blogging right now:

1. It is 2 AM.

2. It is 2 AM.

3. I am sick. Again.

4. My body is simultaneously on fire and shivering like a hypothermic, floppy fish.

4. It’s easy to make mistakes when you’re sick and tired.

5. It is difficultt oioto type when your’re shiverrrringgh.

6. I am not entirely lucid. Dang it, who left the dark on?

7. It is easy to lose track of

8. It is 2:05 AM.

9. I don’t have a number 10 either.

All the reasons I wanted to blog right now:

reproducing pig

Ok, I am so tired, that I actually put in the wrong picture. So, no, I am not selling reproducing pigs. Seriously. It was the wrong picture.

Here is the right one:

sam with panda hat_creepy

Shiza, I did it again.

Although, this one is kinda funny. It’s actually a photo I shopped for my “How to Be Creepy” blog post that I never posted because I’m a chicken and didn’t want to destroy my oh-so-clean brand.



Yes, wine is good, but that’s still the wrong picture. *Sigh* Hang in there, folks. I’m struggling to find where I saved this one.



Phew! Finally found it! This is the reason I was so excited (there are other reasons, too, but I’m waiting on something to arrive first before I blog about it, and then you will see me at some seriously high levels of freakishly over the top enthusiasm). The lovely, uber supportive, amazing over-the-top tweetie/bloggie/friend Rhonda at Snarktastic Ramblings has awarded me with the Over the Top Award. And I will not lie. I was heavy-duty coveting this award. And now it’s all mine. ALL MINE!!! My precious….
But I’m supposed to answer some questions, so, well, here:

Your Cell Phone? Mobile
Your Hair? Virgin
Your Mother? Remarkable
Your Father? Sugar
Your Favorite Food? Sweet
Your Dream Last Night? *wink
Your Favorite Drink? Full
Your Dream/Goal? Evolving
What Room Are You In? Cave
Your Hobby? Creating
Your Fear? Subdued
Where Do You See Yourself In Six Years? Late
Where Were You Last Night? Writing
Something That You Aren't? Stupid
Muffins? Yes
Wish List Item? Time
Where Did You Grow Up? Never
Last Thing You Did? Fall
What Are You Wearing? Down
Your TV? Off
Your Pets? Peeves
Friends? Mine
Your Life? Vital
Your Mood? Pensive
Missing Someone? Always
Vehicle? Motorized
Something You Aren't Wearing? Errr....
Your Favorite Store? Vicky’s
Your Favorite Color? Plaid
When Was The Last Time You Laughed? Always
Last Time You Cried? Often
Your Best Friend? Him
One Place You Go To Over And Over Again? Inside
Facebook? Stalking
Favorite Place To Eat? Floor

So there you are.  Now, I’m supposed to give this award away again. And I cannot lie…I’m a little loathe to do it. I mean, really…my precious.

But, okay, I’m over it. I’m kind of fickle like that. And I adore these blogs, so no problem, really. So, I would like to present the OVER THE TOP AWARD to the following blogs (aka the shiznit):

Need I explain that these blogs are amazing and, uh, over the top (yes, that’s a given…since I’m awarding them with the OVER THE TOP AWARD)? Duh. But, seriously, you should check them out. Alexandra is new to blogspot, so it seems like she’s a newbie, but she’s actually had a blog at for ages, and she’s brilliant. The others all are, as well, except I had to explain about Alexandra, in case you got the sense that I was nuts for giving a blog award to someone that just started a blog. Cuz that’s not the case. Am I overexplaining? Possibly. It is 2:32 AM. And I have a fever. So. Yeah.

Anyway, yay me! I mean, not yay me cuz I’m sick. Yay me because I won an award. And yay me because I gave it away. Oh…well…poor me. I miss my award.

You liked that picture of Sam Worthington, didn’t you? He’s totally hot. Even in a panda hat. Admit it. It’s creepy, but kinda hot, right?


  1. Get better soon. Congrats on the award. Now go back to bed :)

  2. I'm so sorry you're sick! But that was one hilarious post! Get better soon!

  3. What a fun post... I love the cheekiness of the err, wrong pics!

  4. Get better soon! Congrats on the award and blogging at 2 am.

  5. Tabitha, Thank you! I'll probably head back to bed soon. I'm zonked and a bit woozy. But first, I have some writing to do. Ha!

    Nisa, Thanks, m'dear. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I honestly woke up this morning in a panic trying to remember what in the world I had written at 2 AM this morning.

    Jill, ha! Thank you. I love fun pics! But, sadly, I did actually keep clicking on the wrong pictures. I was shivering like mad this morning and my eyes were all blurry. But the little devil in me enticed me to keep them in :P

    Christine, Thanks, hon! I don't know what possessed me to blog when I was feeling so tired and sick. Delirium, I think--it's the only rational explanation.

  6. How do you manage to be cute while sick and sleep-deprived? Sheesh. (Some people... grumble, grumble... congenitally endearing... grumble, grumble...)

    Why do I enjoy your stream-of-consciousness blogs so much? Why am I asking rhetorical questions in your comments section? Why can't I seem to stop?


    Congrats on the award, good lady. Yay for not being stupid and never growing up! :)

  7. Hope you start feeling better! I think you handled yourself pretty well for a delirous woman!

  8. So sad you're sick. But I do love these one word answers! Feel better, sweetie!

  9. Simon, you had me at "cute." But "congenitally endearing" has officially made you my favorite person. So, congratulations. Shiny star is on it's way. There's a special clip to attach it to your halo. Please explain to others that the picture of me on the shiny star does mean what they think it means. It is merely a reminder to you that I am your new number one fan (aside from wife and kiddies, who admittedly like you better--presumably they would die for you, and I'm not to that stage of fandom yet).

    Tamika, Thank you, hon! I've learned to function quite well under the influence of delirium. It all started with my second baby who never slept for more than twenty minutes at a time. Necessity is the mother of invention, I think. I hereby coin a new term: Functional Deliriumic (one who can't avoid delirium, and thus learns to function despite it. Also see coping mechanism.) :) Thanks for your comment, sweetie.

    Anissa, Aww, thank you. I will try to get a nap in today. Thankfully hubs is home for the day, so he'll help out with the kiddies.

  10. Thank you, Carolina. I've had lots of lovely, generous things said about my blog 'The Astronaut Dropped', but I suspect that 'over the top' is certainly the most appropriate - in my mind anyway. I promise to dust this accolade regularly - and if the cleaner damages it, I'll lay into her with a stick! What more can I say? I love it!

  11. LOL! Even when you're sick you always manage to entertain me! But seriously, get some zzzz's today. You're making me tired just thinking about you being up at two in the morning typing a blog post. (Did that make any sense???) Hope ya feel better real soon!!! And congrats on the award!!!

  12. Stephanie, Yay! So glad you like it. The moment I got this award, I thought of you ;) You deserve this one and more.

    Melissa Thank you, lovie. I'll do my best to rest. I'm shooting for a nap here soon. By the way, I saw you were nearing your 100th follower!! Way to go, lady!! Booya!

  13. Hope you feel better!!! Fluids, medicine and bed! Straight away! :-)

  14. I can't agree that the panda hat picture is hot, but I think that has a lot to do with my being born with that silly Y chromasome.

    As for your post. YAY, congrats on being over the top. It's a fun award. Nice pic of you too. It's always nice to see a live picture of the people blogging, beyond their profile picture. It makes em seem more real :)

    Congrats again.

  15. What have I told you about staying up late? Lolita is a very bad influence....

    Congrats - on - yet - another - award.... Dear lord, is there no stopping you!

    Love the pics :)

    PS. Nobody should be allowed to be that pretty or that slim! It really is very selfish of you/both :)

  16. Kristi, thank you! I will follow your orders soon as I finish up some work ;)

    Voidwalker, So, you're saying you think it's more creepy than hot then? Ha! Thank you for the congrats and the kindness.

    Wendy, I know, I'm very bad. I never do what I'm told, or even what I should. Lolita is terrible for me, but I haven't a clue how to get rid of her. But thank you for your sweet words. Always too kind.

  17. Over the top? Me? I'm subtle and bland and predictable!

    Thanks dude!! That was an awesome post too.

    Congrats on being over the top too. I hope you're feeling better soon.

  18. Yay for you! Yay for the other blogs!

    Please get some sleep & take care of yourself!

  19. You are too funny! Congrats on the award - you deserve it big-time. :-)

  20. New blogs to check out! Thanks. Congrats on the award and hope you're feeling better soon...

    Elizabeth, Aw, thanks, hon! I'm already starting to feel better.

  23. Sarahjayne, Thank you for your well wishes and kind words :)

  24. I hope you feel better. I don't know how you manage to create an awesome post at 2am with a fever. I'm bowing down to you now. Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it on to me. You are wonderful.

    Oh yeah, that's how I like my drinks too. Full :) Good one!

  25. Eeeee! Thanks!

    Also, you're way funny. I'm sorry you're sick, but your blog entry was too hilarious :-P

  26. are like the best ever! Thank you so much for my award. ; ) I can't wait to post it. : )

    I would be honored to look over your me if you want to talk about it -

    Happy Wednesday!!!

  27. Oooooops. I forgot to tell you to stop by my blog. I've left an award for you there :)

  28. I think plaid is a fabulous color. Do you have a plaid blanket to put over you while you are sick?

  29. Speaking of awards, I left you one on my blog! xoxo

  30. Hahah! Love this blog. Shows the real in you ;) And no matter what... the dood is creepy in a panda hat... ;)

  31. Eva, you are too generous wit your praise, but I eat it up ;) Many thanks, Sweets. I am toasting you at the moment with my very full drink ;)

    Alexandra, you're welcome, dearie. You and your awestastic blog are quite deserving. Thank you for my bit of sugar today. It makes me happy to make you happy :)

    Kimberly, you're welcome, hon. You know I love your blog :) And yes, I'll be e-mailing you soon! You're the best. Thanks a ton.

    Jemi, I'll head on over. Thanks for being so remarkably sweet!

  32. Melanie, I do have a plaid blanket! I keep it in the car, and I did actally use it--while driving even. It's normally difficult for me to stay warm in the winter, but having a fever really made things stupid difficult. It was impossibleto get warm, and yet I felt like I was on fire. So bizarre.

    Courtney, yay! Love awards. Happy Carol...thanks, sweetie. I'll head over there now.

    Eisely, I thought you were adorable from the get-go, but now I think you're about as snuggly sweet as a Maltese puppy (ever seen one of those? OMG, they'll knock you flat with how deliciously cute they are.) Thanks you, sweets.

  33. You SO deserved this award!!! And now you're gushing over Maltese puppies? My beloved dog, Dee, was a maltese...and, yes, they are deliciously cute. :) You made me smile remembering her.

  34. How cute are you? Love this post. Congrats on the awards.

  35. Love your answers, witty and thought provoking. You're off the cuff, i like it.

  36. Rhonda, You're a doll, m'dear. I've said countless times, I know, but you persist on being so sweet. What else can I say when "you are a doll" covers it best. And you had a maltese? (for some reason, I think I knew this) They have to be one of the cuties doggies on the planet. I could just eat them up, I could. So glad I made you smile ;)

    Lisa and Laura, awwwwww. Thanks, ladies. So sweet, you are. I think in my mind I will always think of you as sugar and spice (question is, which is which? Hmmmmmm....)

    Girl with one Eye, ok. 1. Best name ever!! I'm totally imagining you with a pirate patch. And I love pirates. Ahoy, matey! (Okay, I realize that's not your actual name, but I think from now on I will always think of you as a pirate, albeit a cute and cuddly nice one. Sorry for that) 2. Thank you for your lovely comment. I luvs it!!! So very kind of you.
