And The Award Goes To... ME!!! {and lots of others}

Not only did I get voted for once, I got voted for TWICE! THRICE!!! Wow really should check my mail!

{stumbles on stage to accept award}  

{acceptance speech}
[clears throat]

Ah, Crap. Umm, shit. I didn't even prepare a speech, I was totally not expecting this! 

[takes gigantic swig of vodka

Oh, wow. Such an honour! I'd like to thank God, [another swig] my Mum and Dad. [yet another] Myself, my kids, my beautiful Husband! [hiccups and gestures stage hand to fitch another drink] Probably none of which are even aware that I blog. Oh and especially those fabulous girls at Aussie Bum Mummy, Craft Crazed SuperMum and Because I Said So - Rachel.

You know! [waves martini glass around wildly] there are some really interesting facts about me, that a lot of my readers wouldn't know. [pauses] I can't actually remember any of the interesting ones at the moment, but I can tell you some other stuff instead...

 Did you know, that I only have a year 8 education? Explains a lot, doesn't it? I hate pizza, loath it in fact! I actually have this awesome pizza story, involving me, pizza, and lots of vomiting!  [looks slightly queasy whilst reminiscing]  

I believe no Guinea Pigs should be domesticated, the poor buggers look like they're going to have a heart attack when ever a human being comes within a 5km radius! I was a street-kid and spent a good part of my delinquent years getting into trouble with the law. 

I love horses and I always wanted a pony [mumbles "still do"]. I was 10 - 11 years old when I sewed my first project, on my own. It was a this hideous culotte and vest set I made for my 5 year old cousin's birthday. O.M.G the fabric was revolting! 

[spills vodka all over the podium, with a glazed over look in her eye possibly from trauma caused by the ugly material

Mind you, my little cousin thought the outfit was THE. BEST. EVER. and insisted on wearing it to her party. I used to attend "Fame" dancing talent agency, or whatever it's called - needless to say I made a FABULOUS tree in ALL productions, even ones that didn't require trees. Amazing talent. There is also this one time... [security escorts crafty girl from stage]

Ok, so you're on to me. The Versatile Blogger Award looks nothing like a Logie, it actually looks like this...

Despite it's deceptive appearance, this harmless looking button actually comes with some pretty intense responsibility. 

1. Say a big "Thank You!" to the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
[seriously, could it have taken me any longer to get around to doing this!?! I'm hoping the fact Brisbane flooded and I was volunteering is a valid excuse?

2. Tell us seven things about yourself.
[very eloquent and oh so subtle in my speech.]

3. Award seven recently discovered new/great bloggers

"and the awards go to..."

4. Contact award winning bloggers and announce to them know they’ve received the award!!  
[Will do so, once I've posted this]
