That countdown clock is making me mental. Also, I won an award!

The A to Z Blogging Challenge starst tomorrow and I'm having anxiety every time I see their giant countdown clock, because I only have the first week's worth of posts written and convinced that I'm doomed for failure unless I have them all done ahead of time. On the other hand, I work well under pressure, especially after spending almost 2 months swearing to myself how uber-organized I was going to be and come April 1st, I was going to have the entire challenge prewritten, complete with corresponding pics and each post topic rated on a scale of 1 to 5 flaming middle fingers (for an explanation about the flaming middle fingers, you may want to read this but if you don't, trust me, a flaming middle finger rating system makes all kinds of sense, which you can see starting tomorrow)...and then proceeded to procrastinate the fuck out of it and only last Sunday did I start to panic a bit and convinced myself I had to get the first weeks worth of post written or else. No idea if  the "or else" part meant lighting will strike my laptop dead or if my slackassedness would merely be exposed (not that my talent for slacking is a secret, but still, it can be slightly embarassing at times)

What that all means is I plan to get a few more posts prewritten today. I hope. But it's a beautiful day out and the golf course is singing it's siren song and I always obey the golf deities.

In other news, I won a blogging award!! Thanks to Bad Word Mama I'm am the proud new owner of this:
I'm honoured, humbled and shocked that anyone thinks my blog is inspiring (although blogging about how building a dildo factory in the backroom of my workplace might be a good idea hopefully inspired someone, because the world could always use more dildos), so thank you!

With blogging awards, there are apparently rules to follow...I have to tell you 7 things about myself and nominate 15 bloggers for this award. Due to the fact I have to get to work on my A to Z posts, I'm gonna skip the 7 things part because by if you read my A to Z posts in April, you'll find out more about me than you ever wanted to know in the first place. Also I'm not sure I even know 15 people to nominate, but the following bloggers are awesome and I highly recommend you stalk them:

Dysfunctionally Functional
Cloudy With a Chance of Wine
Don't Chew On The Dinner Table
Gaijin Cracker
Jeneral Insanity
Honest Mom
Larks Notes This
Mod Mom Beyond IndieDom
Mountains Wanted
My Half Assed Life
one classy motha!
Something Clever 2.0

  1. Good luck! I'm looking forwarded to your rants :) If you have your first week of posts done I think you are way ahead of the curve

    1. Thanks! I'm giggling on the inside over spending an entire month doing sanctioned bitching and complaining lol

  2. Thanks for the shout out, and of course you're deserving of an award! :)

    Can't wait to read your A-Z list!

    1. You're welcome!

      I'm pretty please with what I've got written so far...I could probably used this theme for the next 10 years and not run out of material :D

  3. Just checking in to see if our love/hate lists match today. Good luck with the challenge!

    1. We don't match today, but I'm hoping we will at least once this challenge!

  4. Congrats on your award. You've done an awesome job writing for the real world masses :)

  5. Congrats on the award! You're full of snark and sass, and I adore you.

    *Sidenote* Oh holy ass, you nominated me? You're fifteen shades of awesome! Sorry I missed you posting it, I'm so far behind on my blogs thanks to Derby, Spring break and the A-Z challenges :(

  6. Aww, thanks! That's exactly why I nominated you too! I know, my timing is horrible because it was right when A-Z was starting and I didn't contact anyone to let them know I nominated them because I got too busy...I figure I'll do that after the A-Z is over and it's not quite so insane
