I Won the Memetastic Award! What?!?!

It is the middle of the award season. (Thank goodness I don’t live in L.A. anymore.) Well, bloggers have awards themselves. Some are organized and a bit stuffy like all of the rest of the awards, and some a just fun. This is one of those fun ones. Diane from The W.H.O.L.E. Gang awarded me the Memetastic award. As you can see by the picture, it is the MOST AWESOME AWARD EVER MADE!

So… Ha! Top that!

Well, even though it is not the Academy Award that I always dreamed I would win… (along with half the population of America. Come on. Admit it. A lot of you out there have practiced that speech in your head even though you swore to yourself that you would never, in a million years, admit it to any other living soul. I dare you to admit it here. Now. I double dare you. I double dog dare you.)

I am happy, oh-so-happy, to accept this award. So, so happy. Oh my gosh! I can’t believe it. I have always dreamed of this. (You have to picture me in an evening gown, full make up and hair, crying happy tears as I do the blink-a-lot-to-hold-back-the-tears-but-have-just-one-or-two-run-down-my-cheek face. Huge smile on my face. Got it? Can you picture it?)

OK, there I can’t do anymore. The rest of the speech is saved for when I really win that Oscar.

Anyway… I really thought this was very sweet and funny. You see, what I have to do now is bestow this on five other people. (Hopefully, they will continue the tradition and bestow, themselves. I mean that they, themselves, will bestow it on someone else. Not that they will bestow it on themselves. That would just be silly. But oh-so-Hollywood.)

But the other thing I have to do is… LIE! Lie like a rug. Lie like a dirty dog. Lie… four times. That’s right, folks. Diane is making me tell four lies. (Guess I’m not getting the George Washington – Chopping Down the Cherry Tree Award.) And tell one truth. And out of those five statements, you all have to guess which one is the truth.

Do you think you can do it? (Mom – You cannot comment. That’s not fair.) Do you think you know me well enough to know which one is the truth? Or do you think I am that much of an open book that you can tell which is the truth out of the four lies? I’d like to see you try. I dare you. I double dare you. I… Why does this seem familiar?

So, that is it. I have to pass this on to five other people. And they write five statements about themselves, only one of them being the truth. Then they pass it on to five others. Now, who to pass it on to…

I think I choose…

Alisa (Go Dairy Free and Alisa Cooks), Ellen (Gluten-Free Diva), Heidi (Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom), Nicola (GFree Mom), and Nancy (The Sensitive Pantry)

And my lies and truth are/is…

  1. I have set foot in all 50 states. Some only by a layover at the airport.
  2. I am related to one of America’s most famous writers.
  3. I was captain of my high school soccer team.
  4. I am addicted to the “Twilight” series books.
  5. I have more tattoos than my mother.

PS – I had to do a little google search on this one, and I was quite surprised to find out this thing has been going around for less than a month. Talk about a meme!? It was created by Jillsmo at Yeah. Good Times. And, I really like her. I like her humor a lot. (Just a warning to anyone about to hop on over and take a look, she swears like a truck driver. I have no problem with that. I do that myself, when my son isn’t around. Took me quite a while to train myself on that one. The only reason I don’t swear here is because I know not all of you appreciate that. In fact, you appreciate me not swearing. And, since I’m writing, it’s a little easier to stop myself from typing “certain” words.)

So, to those of you that have been tagged by me or before, you can go over to her post to get the official rules. And, she would love it if you would link up so she can see where this is going. If you like my humor, you will probably like hers. Just remember… Truck driver!

      Some of my closest friends are “truck drivers.” Heck (insert your own version of this word), my mother is a “truck driver.”

  1. You are hysterical!!! LOL I have not practiced an acceptance speech. Sorry to tell you. 😉 I can’t figure out which one that you listed is true … just don’t know.


    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      Are you sure? Well, if anyone were to tell me that, I would believe you for sure.;)

      Well, number ——– is the true one. Does that help? 😉

  2. I love the acceptance speech. Perfect. I love your 5. I have no idea which one so I’m going to guess #5. I can see you will a KA tattoo.

    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      I’m so glad you liked my speech. I finally got to use it.

      A KA tattoo, huh? Maybe. Just maybe.

  3. I like your potty mouth! ;0) My children hanging around me all of the time has REALLY tamed mine!
    Also, I am voting for #2. I do not know why, particularly, but I just really think that would be a cool truth.
    I have to come up with my 5 today – award was bestowed upon me by Shirley.

    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      Well, thank you for liking my potty mouth. No one has told me they are offended, I just don’t particularly want my son to go around using those terms until he learns them from the kids at school and guys driving cars. You know, like you are supposed to learn them. It’s just so not-cool to learn them from your mom.

      I had a feeling Shirley had already picked you. That’s why I didn’t. We are going to go through the entire gf crowd really quickly. 😉 Can’t wait to see what yours are.

  4. Oh gosh, I should have come here before doing mine – we picked some of the same people to pass it on to…oh well!

    I guessed # 2 for no other reason than I think it would be so cool if it were true. But I think #1 is really true.

    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      I don’t think anyone minds being tagged twice. As long as they don’t have to do two versions of it. 😉

  5. So, I’m assuming that you got one tatoo in your college years, which is one more than your mother has, so #5 is it! And who isn’t addicted to the Twilight series?

    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      Hmmmm. College years, huh? But I started college at 18 and finally graduated at 36. I was on the extended plan. 😉 But that does give me a lot of time to get that tattoo.

  6. I’m going to guess…. mmmm…. Three. Mostly because no one else has guessed it, and if it is true I am going to be the coolest. Besides, soccer is so groovy and international.


    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      Thank you about being fair and spreading the love over all the choices. 😉 I think soccer is groovy, too. I love that the World Cup is played on tv more. I actually think it is so fun to watch, but I am a tad scared about going to see a game in person. Crazy things can happen there.
