And now for something completely different

It has been a day. Dad's good, no news to report. I lent him my laptop for while he's stuck in the hospital and I hope he doesn't find anything on there that makes him think I'm a porn star or deviant of some kind. Is it incredibly sad that I miss my laptop already? It is, isn't it? Oh well....

Anywho, I've had my day made many times today by all of you kind folks in the blogosphere, and Samsmama just tagged me in one of those little blog award postings so now I get to talk about my favorite thing - me! Ha ha... ha... *cough* ha.

So, here it goes:

Those who know that I'm a teensy bit OCD about grammar are probably waiting for me to start twitching because somebody spelled it, "awe-summm," but don't worry your pretty little heads about it. I'm me-lellow like jell-o (cool like lemonade) right now. Maybe it's the valium. Ha - I wish. Ok, I need to stop babbling and do this thang!

1. List seven things that make you awe-summm.
2. Pass the award on to seven bloggers you love.
3. Tag those bloggers to let them know that they are now Queens of All Things Awe-Summm.
4. Don't forget to link to the queen that tagged you.
5. If you would like, copy the pic and put it on your sidebar so everyone knows that you're a queen.

Without further ado, seven things that maketh Bev awesome:

1. I am generally a very cheerful person. I've never felt depressed for more than a day or two, even when bad stuff happens (like now).

2. I have absolutely no qualms about standing up in front of crowds. I did theatre for years and years and years, so I have no problem with public speaking. I'm told I am quite good at it.

3. I'm a good cook and a great baker. Seriously, my cakes would make you weep with their incredible deliciousness.

4. I am a good listener and keep secrets well. Mostly, I forget that you even told me something b/c I put it so far back into the vault. So, maybe it's just that I have a bad memory? Whatever, I stand by the good listener thing.

5. One word: cleavage. It's so good that sometimes I even catch chicks peeking. I keep it under wraps for the most part, but some good tasteful cleavage is alright by me.

6. I'm at peace with my paleness. I've done the whole tan-in-a-can thing, but I give up. I wear sunblock and hats now, so I hope to never look like this ----->

7. I got your pop culture reference RIGHT HERE. I'm even worse in person. Give me one or two tiny clues and I will tell you the actor's name and three other films he was in. Throw me a sitcom quote and I will lob one right back. Show me a social climbing D-lister and I will tell you whose junk she's currently working. It's just what I do, and I love it.

That was fun! And now to tag some other "awe-summm" bloggers:

Mala, of course. She's insanely funny and an incredible friend.

Steph, the superhero of the blogging community! A super smart and funny lady who actually likes herself, which makes everyone else like her, too.

Matteroffactmommy because she's the real deal: smart, funny, and kind.

Frank, who says he has "nothing to say," yet whenever he speaks I laugh! And besides, he's just a cool dude.

Jessica O(face), because she's got a sharp and self-deprecating wit that I completely dig.

Audra, who is a Supermom and also has a way of describing things that cracks me up!

Jo, who doesn't blog much, but is such a kind, funny friend. Also? She's hella good with the pop culture references and will TOTALLY be on my team if VH-1 ever does their World Series of PC show again. :D

So there it is. I'm gonna go put together an enormous floor puzzle with my kids right now, and then later I am going to drink a glass of wine, watch Lost, and stay off the internet! What a novel concept.

Not only that, but you an Samsmama have pretty much tagged the bloggers I read.

I'll try to get something up, even if it means cut-n-pasting what Samsmama said, as it pretty much applies to me, too.

Cary said...

I was about to write that you are perfect but then you didn't tag me, so I changed my mind. The wedding is off.

Frank Irwin said...

Damn, Cary, I was going to tag you, but now I'm afraid of the consequences.

Samsmama said...

Frank, you can strut yourself in some come fuck me shoes, too? Awesome.

I've got that creepy music from "Silence of the Lambs" in my head now. Truth be told, I like it.
I'd fuck me.

Samsmama said...

Sorry, Bev, I just totally ignored you.

OK, #6, Sam once offered to get me a jacket. Why? He said, seriously, "Let's cover up your skin. Nobody wants to see that."

#7,I fucking LOVE YOU for that!!! You totally keep me on my toes.


Pam said...

Wow, that really was awe summmmmmm. haha.

Cary said...

Don't worry, Frank, you're not my type.

Harmony said...

Love this list! I am so terrified of talking in front of groups of people...unless people like watching a drunk person mumble about like she's totally coherent..I rock that shit.

Dude send me a cake..I want to weep with their incredible deliciousness...seriously!

Yes your arsenal of all things pop culture is one of the things I love most about you.

Mala said...

You ARE totally awe-summmmm, Beveroni!
I'm so glad we are friends despite A) I don't rock the grammar too good.
and B) I've never watched Seinfield, Friends, The Office and many, many other important pop culture reference points.
So therefor I would add to the list of your beautiful attributes, your overwhelming compassion to befriend those far less cooler.

Bev said...

Frank, did I call you a queen? Paging Dr. Freud.... ;) You know I love ya, you big queen!

Cary, I honestly thought you were far too cool to participate in this type of thing on your hugely popular & successful blog. Besides, you're too busy entertaining your masses of female fans on facebook these days, aren't you? :p

Samsmama, "I fuck myself" is one of my very favorite lines... ever. People look at me funny, but I'm used to that. ;)

Also, love that! Stink is the bomb! My oldest son is the opposite. He's always trying to feel me up. We've got some straight-up Oedipal stuff happening 'round these parts....

Harmony, be careful, I will TOTALLY send you a cake! Of course, it will arrive in several pieces, but it will still make you weep, I'm sure!

Mala, you know I love you despite your pop culture short comings. Besides, you're one of the only people who will shamelessly stalk celebrities, up to and including flying across the country to watch them in their natural habitat! And don't say you're not cool - you're Fonzie!

Bev said...

Ooh, I forgot PJ - Pam, your awesummm to! (it actually pained me to write that... I hope you're happy!)

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...

Bev, you are the shiznit! thanks for the tag! and thanks for saying that i'm kind. wasn't sure that anyone could possibly ever pick up on that. HEH!

i, too am an excellent Keeper of Secrets. i think it's because i have so many of my own that only 1 or 2 others know. you know? knowing who you can and cannot trust is a gift.

Steph said...

You are entirely too kind. Seriously.

jessica o said...

Hey! Thanks for the tag. Sorry I was MIA. I had some serious swine flu shopping to do. I have NO idea what makes me awesome. As you said I am self-deprecating. Hard for me to compliment myself. Humble? Hmmm. Good for a laugh at?

Samsmama said...

You goofball! Sam loves my boobs! I was talking about #6. I'm just THAT pale. He also has called me "shiny" and "bright".

Bev said...

MOFM - as we say here in New England, "No, you AHHHH." (that's are, but we're not so big with the "r's" around here). You're totally kind. I'm not buying the tough girl schtik. Ok, you're still tough, but you're also squishy on the inside, and I love it.

Steph - again, "No, you AHHHH." :)

Jessica - You need to get in touch and embrace your awesomeness, my dear. It is oozing out of you (speaking of, I think they make a cream for that); you just need to tap into it! I can't wait to read your list!

Samsmama - OOPS! I'm an idiot! I told you, counting & numbas are SO not my thing...which is why I work in finance. Of course Sam loves your boobs! I remember the showering post, now that you mention it! (slapping forehead)
I didn't realize you were a fellow Casper-girl! Woohoo - put on your protective eye gear, people; Maryann & I are hitting the beach!

Jo said...

HA! Thanks for the blog mention.
:-) We would be an unstoppable force on any pop culture game show. Bring it on, bitches! LOL! Oh, and I will blog more, I will damn it! :-)

Love ya, Bevy!

Bev said...

Jo, we would be unstopable!! We've got it all!!! Love ya back, girly. :)
