When Ass Burger Boy was younger, he overheard me tell someone close that I would rather have them drop the F bomb than say the N word around him. I didn’t want that kind of hate in his vocabulary. He filed it away for future reference.

Nowadays, when he is frustrated or angry, he repeats the N word like a person with Tourette’s Syndrome. I have explained how loaded with hatred and bad juju this word is.

Then, in a rare moment of clarity, *ding, ding* it dawned on me.

Me: You use that word because it offends me so much, don’t you?

ABB: Yeah, kinda.

Me: Well, aren’t you just the effing rebel?

ABB: smirk.

Awarding of the Bling

From the lovely and fragrant Teeni, who wishes to acknowledge a few of her must read daily posts comes the Daily Dose Award. Be quiet. It wasn’t what you were thinking, now, was it?

I have to pick only three blogs who fill me with happiness when I see they have updated. Tough call. You should subscribe to these three, and become addicted your ownself. Drum roll, please…

1. Zoe

2. Veronica

3. Well Done Fillet

From my much loved bloggy buddy, Zoe, comes the I Less than three your blog, which I take it to mean that she hearts my blog.

zoe--less-than-3-your-blog

There are many blogs that I heart as well. I just feel all warm and fuzzy when I visit them. Here are three:

1. Teenie, Vaguetarian Tea Room I was going to also award this to I am the Diva, but I figure Teeni will get it to her.

2. Texas Poppet

3. Loralee’s Looney Tunes

And? I really hate having to narrow it down to three. There are so many great blogs out there.

This week I had a hard time refraining from bestowing this award on Knudsen, award winning commenter, but he does have another blog and I am sure he will be able to decorate it soon. I do have to include it here for those who didn’t get to enjoy it. His response was to his puzzle time. The man just cracks me up. Those of you viewing in a reader are so missing out on the comments.

HA! 4 minutes and 8 seconds, you didn’t think I could beat my usual 5.29 but I did, you can’t keep a good man doon or me for that matter. The Nazis thought they could make me talk with torture but no I held out, well until they threatened to hurt me. Do not underestimate Old Knudsen oh no and don’t stand doon wind from him either or bend over in front of him because he has OCD well thats what I told the judge, if I didn’t grab her arse I felt like something bad would happen, I mean worse than the punch she gave me which loosened my crown, on Tuesdays I don’t wear my cap I wear a crown, don’t ask me why.

If you agree with me, be sure to sport this bumper sticker, suggested by Jenny.

Another comment that I would like to share here for those who may have missed it is Kristabella’s response to There are Things That Make Us Happier. I was wiping my eyes with this one. She’s brilliant.

I’m always overdrawn too. We get paid next Friday and I’m logging onto my account everyday to see when the magic happens.

I like to call it magic so that it doesn’t depress me. And the bank guy likes to call it magic because I’ve put his kid through college with all my overdraft fees.

This weeks Peep of the Week goes to Dawn for her comment on Parallel Play. It was a pithy response, and I almost pithed my panth.

ah… you just compared my husband to a toddler. so perfect. :)

The Perfect Post Award is one I admit that I have coveted. In the course of last month’s blog browsing, I came across this gem from Nan. The folks I submitted this post to agreed with me, and thus, Nan gets to proudly display this little treasure. My precioussss. Check it out. It’s really worth reading.

Of course, I have something for my regular commenters.

This week, I plan to rectify my bloggy buddy Zoe’s big lip at being left out for the last award. Whining can get you places. Ask anyone who has children.

um…i thought i was your bitch?

Yes, darlin, you are my bitch, and I shall decorate you with bling to prove it.

I was feeling unwell and lazy yesterday, so your Peep of the Week award is a day late, and a dollar short.

This week’s award goes to Warrior Woman for her jaded but funny comment on Synchronicity

religion and sex. fuck up and confess.

religion is a man made institution, God is free.
but I can wrap him up in a scary package and sell him to you for $19.99 per month for 3 months. just use your credit card and call 1-800-I-saw-you-coming.

and then later I can have sex with you, whack you with my bible and tell you it was all your fault.

This Bloggy Blessing is sent to me from Kim

I would like to pass it on to Jen of Mommy Needs Five Minutes and Marie in Maine because her blog is new, and I always think of her at 11:11. which it is right now.

Nan is someone who I always get excited to see in my feed reader. I also enjoy her insightful comments, especially knowing that she blogs from a Blackberry!

Her comment responded to my reincarnation post.

Oh, I hope reincarnation is real… I have had many dreams and “hey, I know you!” experiences, and the idea of sitting on a cloud with my harp for eternity, or alternatively standing in line at the regional corporation office and dealing with government officials for all eternity, seems so dull! Isn’t that a long sentence! Sam was very cautious around water, although he could swim, and when he was about 3 he almost drowned. He was swept away from me by a sudden current, and I reached him in the nick of time. Afterwards, he asked me “what happened to the other Sam?” I said I didn’t understand what he was asking, so he said “you saved me, and we were together, but before, the other Sam sank right down, and nobody could save him. That is why I came in your tummy. Because you could keep me safe.”

If that isn’t an example of reincarnation, I don’t know what is. And after that experience, he became really BRAVE in the sea, surfing and ducking under when before he had been so careful.

Nan, if this is too big for your blog, it is easily resizable. Thank you for your comments. I value everybody’s comments, and I’m sure I will get around to you, too.
