Mephobia: Fear of Becoming so Awesome That the Human Race Can’t Handle It and Everybody Dies


Jolene spoils me.  It’s plain and simple.  She is just too good to me.

This time, she awarded me with the Quintet of Radiance: Five Ennobling Awards!  I’m not worthy of the honor, but of course, I won’t turn such a thing down!

Here is the idea behind the award: To serve as a constant reminder for our thoughts to remain Versatile, to brighten up the dark pathways of the mind with Sunshine, respect our Inner Peace, bring about changes by being positively Influential, and make this pale blue planet an Awesome  place to abide in.

There are no other rules to this awesome award, so I’ll just “pay it forward” by nominating five very special bloggers:

Luminous Blue – Once you read her story, you will be hooked.  What an amazing tribute to her beautiful daughter.

Fish of Gold – She is a fighter and a winner.  She’s been through things most people can’t even imagine.  And she’s come out of those things stronger and more beautiful.

 

talktodiana – She has a heart of gold and spends her time trying to change the world.

 

rarasaur – She is completely selfless and amazingly thoughtful.  I’m proud to show off my token of friendship from her!

RePrEsSeD ExPrEsSiOnS – She, too, is a fighter and has beat breast cancer!  She’s also a pediatric dialysis nurse (which is right up there with teaching heroes) and an unashamed Christian.

Clearly, I’m not fit to receive this award because I’m nowhere near as amazing as these ladies.  But I accept this award from the amazing Jolene with a ginormous amount of thanks!

If you’re not already following these ladies (and Valley Girl Gone Country), then DO IT NOW!  It’ll make you awesome, too, just knowing them!

“My new house is going to have wall-to-wall awards!” ~Patsy Cline


I was shocked yesterday to learn that I’ve been nominated by The Girl Who Blogs for, you guessed it… another award!!!  I mean, I know I’m awesome, but most other people aren’t as aware of that as I!  I’m just kidding…

Kaela (one of my very favorite blogger-chicks) chose me as one of the recipients of the Bouquet of Three Award!

Here are the rules:

1. Proudly display the Award Certificate on your blog page!

2. Announce your win with a post.  Be sure to link your post back to me as a “thank you” for the nomination.

3. Present up to 15 awards to fellow deserving bloggers.

4. Let them know you’ve nominated them for this awesome award.

5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

Here are my Bouquet of Three Award nominees:

Cowboys and Crossbones – Her stories about her pussy, Ted, have me laughing so hard it hurts!

This Typing Makes Me Look Busy…. – She writes about everything from funny, drunken mishaps to her love of dance!

missandmisters – I love her stories about her beautiful boys, and the poo one took the cake!!  Check it out – It’s hilarious!

draliman on life – Drali is an amazingly funny blogger, and his DraliDoodles are awesome!

One man and his Mustang – Guys!  He knows the difference between a 1964, 1964 ½, and 1965 Mustangs!!!  That makes him my hero!

The Tousled Apostle – She is an English nerd (like me!), a proud Christian (like me!), a writer (like me!), and a musician (crap – not like me!)  In other words, she’s incredibly talented!

And now for the 7 interesting things about myself:   

1. My birthday is 7/11 – like the convenience store that sells the Slurpees.

2. My maiden name is Terwilliger – like Sideshow Bob’s on The Simpsons.

3. I’m originally from Middletown, New York.  Nope – that’s not upstate, and it’s not in the City.  (See where that red star is?)  There are actually other places to NY.

4. My favorite animal is a panda.  Nope, that’s not from the bear family, but actually the raccoon family.

5. I’m left-handed.  That makes me a creative high achiever.

6. My favorite number is 17.  Apparently this makes me intense, difficult to live with, hardworking, and compassionate.  Since my first initial is A, I may become very wealthy.  (Damn, I wish this stuff was true…)  Check out the “meaning” of your favorite number here.

7. Both of my babies are February babies.

Thank you again, Kaela!!!  I’m honored!

So I just finished changing my pants since I peed from excitement when I saw that Arden created the I Mustache You a Question Award and nominated me, albeit only because I sit next to her all day, and she thought I’d bitch about not winning.  Geez.  Anyhow, that’s not what matters, right?  What really matters is that my awards list is getting longer by the day!  Even Bitter Ben awarded me with his Bitterly Pressed Award because he’s trying to piss off Arden.  I’m beginning to like how this whole award thing works… piss a bunch of people off and shower Alicia with awards in the process!  This is a win-win for me!  Thanks Arden!!!

Anyway, back to business.  Here are the rules for this bomb-diggity award:

1. Add the award badge to your blog page.

I Mustache You a Question Award

2. Thank the person who nominated you.  (Thanks Arden!)

3. Answer your nominator’s question.

4. Nominate two bloggers for the award to keep it going.

5. Ask the new winners your incredible question.

6. When you’re awarded this, think of your two favorite bloggers at that very moment.  Here are your winners!

7. You can’t award the Mustache Award to the person who nominated you.  Make someone else’s day.

First, I’ll reveal my nominees for the ‘I Mustache You a Question Award.’  They are…..

“Normal” is the New Boring –

Blogging is the extent of her social life, as well.

 and

 TheLifeandTimesofaMom

She actually likes human contact.  She deserves an award for that in and of itself.

My question for both of these amazing ladies is:

If you could have a whole weekend with no kids to worry about and chase around, what would you do?  What would your fantasy weekend consist of?  (No guilt about not having the rugrats, either, by the way.)

Okay, now that that part’s out of the way, I’ll move on to Arden’s question for her nominees.  She asked “Is there something you’ve been holding back from someone that you just want to scream in their face but can’t (or won’t)?  It can be a friend, a coworker, a spouse or boyfriend, a relative.  Why haven’t you told them?”

Well, since you asked…

You all know how I feel about the one particular Turkey Leg Fatty Patty whom I see every day.  You know… the one who drives me insane with every single thing she does?  Well, last week while Arden was enjoying her amazing vacation, and I was stuck here to deal with Chunky McChunkerson on my own, I was surprisingly well-behaved.  I only gave her the look of death maybe three times a day, as opposed to the normal 15 times.  And, I did not scream in her face that she should never EVER wear that purple dress again.  Ever.  For the love of God.  Ever.

Why, you ask?  What was so wrong about the purple dress?

She looked like Violet Beauregarde.  When she turned into a blueberry.

On Friday, when the ice cream truck came for Employee Appreciation Week, I wanted to offer to roll her down to the parking lot just like any good Oompa Loompa would do.  But I didn’t.  I was scared she was going to pick the whole ice cream truck up and eat it.  (You know… like King Kong does when he picks up the girl??)

I held back.  I contained myself.  Why?

Simple:  I didn’t want to be eaten.
