I Win! I Win!



Imagine my surprise when I checked my favorite blogs this morning and discovered that Quirkyloon over at Musings of a Quirkyloon paid it forward to me with the coveted "Premiere Meme Award!"

Here it is in all it's glory!

I'm shocked... I'm honored... I didn't have an acceptance speech ready!

I've never received a blogger award before, so this is really, really, super duper exciting!
But there's a catch... there's always a catch... in order to claim the coveted MEME award, I have to divulge 7 Quirky Personality Traits about myself as evidenced in my blog and then pay it forward to seven other bloggers with personality... and sparkle... and dash... and... well, bloggers I like to read.

What can I say that will not shock and alarm Quirkyloon too much?

Here goes...

Ummm......

I'm thinking.....


1. I tend to look for the humor in most situations... that way I don't have to be depressed all the time.

2. I am scatter-brained... my mind goes on many exciting field trips... what was that I was writing about?

3. I am the sum of my experiences... without all the weird crap that happens to me, I'd be very boring.

4. I'm obsessive compulsive... but not about cleaning.

5. I'm a laid back mom... so it's lucky I've escaped Mommy Jail this long.

6. I'm too nice for my own good... I let people walk all over me... but I can be catty and bitchy to people who just plain annoy me... and then let them walk all over me.

7. I seek attention... let's talk about me! Me! Me! So the Meme award is perfect for me!

Now, if I've done my blog properly, the above revelations should not be too much of a surprise to you, my loyal readers.

And now, for some bloggers much more worthy of the honor....

Drum roll, please....



1. Nanodance over at Callithump Thunderblog... without whom the Cat Lady would never have been born... and it's her birthday tomorrow, so this way I won't have to buy her a real present.

2. The Right Reverend Sister Phillipia at Writes Phillipia... the first stranger to become a follower of my blog... and I do mean stranger in a good way.

3. The mysterious Mr. Roth over at IndigoWrath... because I love a good man of mystery.

4. American Guy at Canadian Blend... because he'll need it, having just married the Canadian Gal with 5 kids to add to his own brood of 3.

5. Madame DeFarge at Bateau de Banane... because her posts are always so carefully knitted.

6. KC at Good Twin/Bad Twin... because she's from Iowa, the land of my birth.

7. Spudballo over at Chez Spud... because she looks so swell in her glasses as the butterflies carry her away.

So there you have it... more than you ever wanted to know about me and seven new bloggers to check out.

All that's left to say is...

Thank You, Quirkyloon!
I Love You!


Now, can I have the damn award?

Thank you, you crazy cat lady! Thank you very much (came out in Elvis voice in my head)

Nanodance said...

Congratulations to you! And congratulations to me!! Thank you so much!! I am so excited! An award! I am going to have a special display cabinet made in order to display it! Do you think adding a room onto my house for it is a little much? Maybe I should just kick Ezra out and put it in his room. Perhaps I should call the contractor back...

IndigoWrath said...

Hiya CatLady!

Congratulations, the award is well deserved.

And you do me a great honour, thank you. It says a lot about you that when good fortune comes your way, you share it with other people.

*bows*

I remain your mysterious servant, Indigo

Phillipia said...

Hey Cat Lady,

Congrats. It could not have been awarded to a more deserving blogger...

And thank you for sharing.

There is no stranger follower than I:)

JennyMac said...

Great list..and #7 made me laugh. Congrats on your award.

mrsb said...

Congrats on your award!

And thanks for stopping by my blog! I am a crazy cat lady with cats, lol! I love the name of your blog!!

CatLadyLarew said...

JennyMac: Thanks for paying attention to me! You know how needy I am!

mrsb: And I love your hat! Thanks for paying me a visit!

CatLadyLarew said...

KC: You're welcome! Give my best to Elvis.

Nanodance: I suggest making Ezra convert the guest room into the award room. That way you could lay down and look at your award whilst you drink some wine.

Indigo: Thank you for being my mysterious servant. *curtsies* I honor you!

Phillipia: I pride myself in only having strange friends.

Hi there, CCL:

Congrats on the award from the renown Quirkyloon -- that's terrific. But I bet you didn't have to worry about saying something that would shock and alarm her. I think you're on safe ground because I bet she can take it. (So how bout more wacky and wonderful details... not that I'm trying to pry or anything. After all, we just met. Thanks so much for starting to follow my blog. I reciprocated, but not reflexively. I came by, discovered you were funny and not praising Jesus (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with that) nor featuring pictures of decoupaged toilet paper covers, and signed right up. Glad to meet you and again, congrats. PS: I have a cat, just one, but could still be a CCL, right? There is a lot of cat hair around, and a pee-stained rug under my feet.

K a b l o o e y said...

Post Script: TMI on the pee rug (and shoes on at the k a b l o o e y house). Also, I owe you a close parenthese from the last post.

CatLadyLarew said...

Kablooey: Praise Jesus we found each other! I'm actually quite irreverent about most things religious and I don't do decoupage, so I think we'll get along beautifully. I've long since given up on worrying what people think about me, which is why I open my big mouth and stick my foot in so frequently. It's just who I am! Looking forward to pictures of your pee-stained rug. (My golden leaves enough hair around to put all cats to shame!)

ettarose said...

Well deserved I must say. I will always think much of the Quirky butt herself. She is a nut!

Hit 40 said...

Congrats on the award!! I need to go to mommy jail with you. My youngest really brought out the swear words in me today. He needs to go back to school

JD at I Do Things said...

Congratulations! I like reading these award posts, 'cuz I always get links to some interesting new blogs. And it seems from your list of 7 quirky things, we have a lot in common. OC - yes. Clean - no.

Hit 40 said...

I like the sharps container idea. We need someone to go postal at a doctors office to get them to understand not to screw us over on our time!!

CatLadyLarew said...

ettarose: Thank you! That Quirky is just so... quirky. Gotta love her!

Hit 40: I'll save you a spot in my mommy jail cell... we can go all postal on the doctors and then just sit back and enjoy the quiet and read all the books we want from the prison library and wait for dinner. It may taste like crap, but at least we won't have to cook it ourselves.

JD: I know what you mean... I just love finding new people to read! Thanks for your commitment to doing things so I don't have to.

Cat said...

Congratulations! Great meme info. I love that you're OCD but now about cleaning. You're just OC...

spudballoo said...

Congratulations!!! How marvellous, and thank you (blushes). Oh God do I really have to reveal yet more secrets? I already did that whole 30 secrets in 30 days thing, gah.!!! xx

Winky Twinky said...

CONGRATS!! On the well deserved honor!! Looking forward to checking out a few of these "new to me" blogs... ;)

Hit 40 said...

I am glad that you were able to finish the darn divorce!! These seem to take forever!!! Especially with kids involved.

Midlife Jobhunter said...

"I tend to look for the humor in most situations... that way I don't have to be depressed all the time."

I like that one. Thanks for following me. I look forward to following yours.

CatLadyLarew said...

Cat: Thank you for acknowledging that OC is not necessarily a D.

Spud: Secrets! We want secrets! Especially those you discover at BlogCamp... feel free to tell secrets about other people instead.

Winky: Just checked out your deep dark secrets... alarming!

Hit 40: I managed it in about a year and a half. Vlad being a bit older helped.

Jobhunter: We can look for jobs together. I'm enjoying your posts, but all this reading leaves little time for job hunting. That could be a problem.

Chrissy said...

Congratulations! I share personality trait #2.

Hit 40 said...

Thank you for the comment.... this husband also cheated and moved out to another woman's home. She had also been married. Two marriages ruined. A total of 3 kids involved between both marriages. Just sad.

CatLadyLarew said...

Hey, Chrissy! What was that you were saying about trait #2?

Hit 40: Yeah, it sucks big time. You're so lucky you have such a great family.

Madame DeFarge said...

Just back in the land of the idle workers. Congrats n your award and thanks for passing it on, much appreciated. I'll try to think of something quirky enough to say about myself. I'm still doing all the post holiday washing and ironing, so am feeling anything but inspired about writing. Ho hum.
