Who's Fabulous?

Sherri, over at Matter of Fact told me she’s featuring my blog on her blog on Friday. Normally this would thrill me, but today Sherri told me I have a big butt (actually, she yelled it at me, people!) and that I can no longer have her gorgeous husband, Big Al, when she kicks. I’m not sure what is up with that (crazy) woman's attitude or why she turned into an Indian-giver… I mean, I assured her I’d wait ‘til she was gone before I took my place on the back of Big Al’s new Harley, but that didn’t even seem to matter! Can you imagine?! The nerve of some people! So, although being featured on her blog sounds good, I’m not at all sure what sort of stuff she’s going to say about me. Some not-so-nice stuff seems highly likely. Sniff.

So, in case any of her peeps come by, ready to believe the terrible lies she’s spouting (I know my regular readers won’t… right? Right? Right?!), I figured I’d make sure they know I’m really fabulous. And you know how I know I’m fabulous? Because the lovely Michelle at The Truth As I Know It told me so! She bestowed upon me this fabulous award… because, hello! I’m fabulous!

Have I mentioned that I’m fabulous? (Well, it's that, or I've fooled the hell out of Michelle...)

And now I have to pass it on. But how to choose? You’re all fabulous… well, except for those of you (Sherri) who yell at me that my butt’s big. Even if it is. Details schmetails.

But I have to pick…

I’m going to give it to someone to whom I’ve never given an award… a person who never fails to make me laugh, with his blog or his comments… a person I know I’d love to sit with over a pint in ‘real’ life… a person I’d give anything to sit next to on the train… a person whose shoulder I will never read over…

If you’re not reading his blog, you’re nuts. Do it. Because I said so and because I’m fabulous (I told you, Michelle said so, damn it!). But more importantly, because he’s fabulous.

And Jon, I know the award is a little girly but I also know you’re man enough to take it (and so do all those teenagers at the pool! Oh, wait... it was cold that day, wasn't it? So, hmmm... maybe not ;)… xo

PS... Thank you, Michelle, for the fabulous award! I'm really honored (even if you are a little misguided and clearly gullible ;)... xo

PPS... Sherri, I still love you... even if you are crazy, an Indian-giver, and think I have a big butt. Sniff.

Hmmmm...I've got to get me one of those (the award, not big butt) because everyone who knows me knows that 'Fabulous' is my fav word.

blognut said...

I will personally drive down I-55 and clobber Sherri if she says anything bad about you. I swear.

Congrats on being fabulous! I already knew it, but it's good to be reminded.

Michelle said...

Misguided and gullible??

Yep, that's me alright :)

sherri said...

blognut- that wasn't very nice!
You'd have to cross over to I-57 to get to me anyway.(exit 65) I'll be easy to spot. I'll be the girl in the stilletos with with big butt on the back of the hot guy's Harley who has a picture of Diane in his wallet!

And Diane, I only say NICE things about people on my Friday post. That's why it's called FRIENDLY FRIDAY.

And yes I'm an Indian giver, I'll admit it. I'm experiencing hormonal mood swings this week. Sorry.

Diane said...

No worries, honey. I've heard that hot flashes and mood swings happen when you hit a certain age. I still love ya... really. And hey, what photo does Big Al have? I hope it's the one where I look really hot (in other words, that picture of Blognut).

Helen said...

Hi Diane. I came here because Sherri told me to ;-)
Nice award.

sherri said...

I feel another mood swing comin' on! Big Al loves ME and I'm NOT DEAD YET! K?

Yeah, it's one like blognut described. I'm not letting him read her post, then he'll be trying to visit her too! (She's close enough).

mo.stoneskin said...

Hmmmm it is a bit girly though...

I'm honoured to be given it, thanks for your kind words, apart from the ones that remind me of the naked pool incident...

Thanks very much :)

Diane said...

Sherri...

OK. I'm making the big sacrifice here and I'm officially giving up my Big Al obsession. Choke. Sniff. I'm doing it for you... and your mood swings (plus, I've heard women in the throes of menopause can get violent). You'll never hear another word about that gorgeous man slip past my lips... errr... fingers. Give him my love. Oh. OK, NOW I'm done.

Sigh. Sniff.

Well deserved, Diane! Your blog IS fabulous! Funny... honest... wonderful... :)

boneman said...

hmmm

well, as I already mentioned the butt at Sherri's, I best be skipping by it, eh?
It's not that really proper for a stranger like me to say.
I've often found size doesn't matter
some are skinny some are it doesn't matter
The only thing that matters is you're in Virginia and no where near a baseball bat, hey.....

batter batter batter swing!
(CLUNK)
ow.....

Protege said...

Congratulations on your award; we all know that your blog is fabulous!;)
And how nice to be featured on someones page; I hope one day you will be featured in a magazine.;))
Have a great TGIF.;))

Michelle said...

Hi Diane, you are beyond fab!!!

So I am all confused. When you said Michelle gave you an award I'm all like, no I didn't!!! I couldn't quite understand that there are other Michelle"s out there with blogs giving out awards and thinking your fab!!! Took me a while but I understand now!!! :O)

Oh and umm do you have a big butt??? Just curious?

Sam_I_am said...

There's nothing wrong with a little junk in the trunk! Plus, it lets you spend more hours comfortably sitting on the back of a Harley. lol

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Now I am sure that Big Al has enough love to share around every woman who's in that line!

How could we believe Sherri, and yet Diane, we never actually get to see your 'hint end' (as we say around here) in photos, so how could she say that? I don't believe her, no...

Many congrats on a fabulous award, Diane - For a fabulous blogger and friend, whose friends are keen to fight for her - I'm with Bloggus Nuttus, as ever, I'll be holding her handbag while she wades in! xxx
