My Bags Are Packed!!

I just got what might be the best ever bloggy award!

My cute bloggy boyfriend Andy (and yes, I’m fully aware that I have t-shirts older than he is… and that he has a "real" girlfriend(Pffffttt)... what’s it to you?!) over at Wild ARS Chase designed this one himself. In fact, he had the presentation of The Wild ARS Bloggy Awards over at his today… it was sort of like the Golden Globes or the Academy Awards… except without Billy Crystal or Rosie O’Donnell… or any other famous people… and the award is for blogs (duh) and not movies or television programs... and it was online instead of in a big, fancy theatre with booze and food and after-parties and stuff… and no, as a matter of fact, there wasn’t even Diet Pepsi… or Twinkies either. OK, so maybe it wasn’t exactly like the Golden Globes or Academy Awards at all. Oh, stop being a killjoy and just let me have my moment of glory, will you?! Geez.

Anyway, this is what I won…

Blog Sure to Go Big Places in 2009: Diane's Addled Ramblings. Her comment totals keep growing and growing as she gets funnier and funnier.

Cool, huh? So very cool. And it’s so very cool because I think Andy is quite brilliant, a great writer, and hysterically funny himself (and I’m not just saying all that because he’s my boyfriend… and yes, I’m fully aware I’m old enough to be his mother… shut it).

So thank you, Sweet ARS (I’ve always wanted to call him Sweet ARS… and yes, I’m fully aware I could go to jail for that in several states… geez, you are a killjoy, aren’t you?!).

Oh, by the way, Andy, what big places do you think my blog and I will go? ‘Cause I’m thinking the Galapagos would be nice this time of year. And I’ve promised to visit Protégé in Denmark soon. Oh, and I’d love to get down to Oz to see Lee. So, does Wild ARS Chase fund these trips? Is this how the award works? Let me know the details (you know, like credit card info and stuff) before I book my flights, OK? Appreciate it! Love ya!

That's a good one! Andy is so funny I actually laugh out loud at his stuff (like so loud sometimes people ask me what I'm laughing about). He's not young enough to be my son, but sometimes I'm gobsmacked at some of the things he says that makes me realize how old he isn't. Like how he was still sucking his thumb and eating crayons when Bull Durham and Field of Dreams came out.

Good on ya girl!

Oooo...you have my attention...!

Andy said...

Hey, I'm legal, and that's what matters. In one month, I'll be 26, so does that help? No?
Well, I think your blog is going big, famous Internet places, but anyplace tropical will work as well. Just invite me. I'll be your cabana boy.
And thanks for all the kinds words, but really, you're the one who deserves all the kudos.

Mel said...

Now you know I can't pass it up once I see it:

Cain't I runt my hup!

Mel said...

Yeah, I know I'm commenting again. Suck it!

I hope you didn't spit tea on your keyboard again. At least wait until you get that infernal silicone cover that I just ordered for you through the mother. You'll get it when I feel like sending it to you, so hold your tea, woman!

Braja said...

I can't believe you think I abandoned you...what crap....never...

Protege said...

Ah, I SO AGREE WITH ANDY! I am so happy for you, you deserve awards, your blog is fantastic and I have so enjoyed being part of it from almost the beginning!
As a matter of fact, P and I talked about that you should maybe consider publishing your posts in a collection.;)) It would be a best seller for sure.;)
And yes, my guest room is ready anytime you decide to come for a visit.;)

Hey! I'm kinda noticin' that your boy Andy didn't pony up with the cash or credit cards there. What's up with that? He artfully avoided the whole question. You're not going to let him get by with it, are you? Not after you packed your bags and all?

Jenners said...

You had turned me on to Andy's blog a while back (I think his blog "measured up" or something) and when I saw his awards post I was so excited to see you listed!!! I thought "I know her. I read that blog." I am so happy for you and I feel that you are most deserving!! Wherever you go, I'll go with you (and that includes all trips tropical or foreign, or domestic.)

Cat said...

Congratulations you whore! Because I know the only reason you got this award is by whoring around, you whorey whore you. Unless there turns out that you didn't actually win an all-expenses paid trip, in which case, just regular old Congratulations. And I take back the "whore" comments, except the first one, because that one was at least a little sincere.

Oh, by the way, don't forget you're out of milk.

XO

Heather said...
