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…
And my lies and truth are/is…
- I have set foot in all 50 states. Some only by a layover at the airport.
- I am related to one of America’s most famous writers.
- I was captain of my high school soccer team.
- I am addicted to the “Twilight” series books.
- 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!
