And The Award Goes To....

     You know what I love about living in the blogosphere (besides the virtual cups of coffee, giant chocolate bars and margaritas we send each other)? Most bloggers are NICE PEOPLE. They visit your site, get comfortable on your couch and share their witty comments on your page. They are a talented bunch who fearlessly share their secrets and dreams, along with their most embarrassing moments just for our entertainment. And they love to share their appreciation of other bloggers by nominating their peers for various awards, or featuring them on their sites and retweeting their statuses. Not only am I pleased to be able to share some awards today with my fellow bloggers, I'd also like to give a big shout-out to Sandra over at http://www.awriterweavesatale.com who just launched her online magazine, The Woven Tale Press, at http://issuu.com/awriterweavesatale/docs/woventaleissue_1. I am honored that she chose one of my posts to appear in her beautiful literary magazine. When you get a chance, please be sure to check out Sandra's blog and subscribe to her magazine!

     Now, onto the awards.....the first one I received was the Liebster. I was actually given this one twice by two amazing bloggers: Darla from Mom's World at: http://camomsworld.blogspot.com and Angela at: http://mylifeinthenutthouse.blogspot.com. Normally this award is reserved for a blogger who has less than 200 followers. I'm well over that limit, but I'm accepting these Liebsters because it gives me the ability to return the love to some bloggers who are new to me and who deserve some love. As with any award, there are certain rules that apply to the Liebster:




1. Each nominee must post 11 facts about themselves.
2. Nominees must answer 11 questions the tagger has given to them, and then create 11 new ones to pass down to the bloggers they then nominate.
3. Display award logo on your site and link back to the person who gave it to you.
4. Choose 11 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award on to and link them in your post.
5. Notify your nominees.

     Rather than answer Darla's 11 questions and another 11 from Angela, I'm going to shorten this by combining some of their questions for your sake, so you don't fall into a coma while reading this lengthy post. Here they are:

1. What Time Do You Normally Go To Bed?  I don't. I'm nocturnal. I was raised by owls.


2.  Do You Like Men With Hairy Chests Or Smooth Chests?  Wait, what? Seriously? If you must know, I like both. I'm far more interested in the look, shape and feel of a man's hands.

3.  Do You Have Any Collections?  If you have to ask this, then you haven't been reading my blog. My house is overrun with squirrel paraphernalia. Toss in a bunch of dragons, too, and you get the picture. Obviously both of my feet are NOT planted firmly in reality.

4.  What Kind Of Music Do You Listen To?  I like old school rock, top 40, country, classical...but I need to listen to dubstep while I clean the house. Currently, my all time fave song is Swedish House Mafia's "Don't You Worry Child".  I like to listen to it while I work out at the gym.

5.  Did You Go To College, And If So, Did You Graduate?  Yes--four years and graduated with a
B.F.A. in Creative Writing. I attended a private women's college in Missouri (my parents knew a hell raiser when they saw one, and decided it would be for my own good to be sheltered away in a school that still had dorm curfews). Little did they know that I spent the majority of my time across the street at the University Of Missouri.....raising hell, just a they feared.

6.  Are You Happy With The Way You Life Is Going Now?  As much as any middle-aged, menopausal woman can be. But I'd be a lot happier if you sent me a box of chocolates. Oh, and yellow roses. Those are my favorites, too....just in case you needed to know....

7.  What's Your Most Frustrating Moment In The Morning?  Putting in my contacts. They feel like sandpaper going in and I cuss like a gutter rat every time I do it.

8.  What's The Best Job You Have Ever Had? When I was filling in at Poet Magazine as a judge for a poetry chapbook competition.

 9.  What Is The Worst Job You Ever Had? That's a toss up between telephone operator and dental assistant. Trust me, you don't want to start off your day with a warm, gooey set of dentures in your hand.

10.  Why Did You Start Blogging?  It was either that or be a Chia Pet assembler.

11.  What Do You Like Most About A Man?  Humor. Nice hands. And the eyes. I'm a sucker for brown eyes. The make me want to swoon.


11 FUN MENO MAMA FACTS  (I've done this stuff so many times now, I think y'all know me better than my own family...certainly more than my kids EVER want to know about me)

* I'm hypoglycemic. I never leave the house without a protein bar in my purse, car or pocket.

* I hate driving. I'd be totally content with a horse and buggy, but only if it comes with air conditioning.

* I'm a really good cook and baker---I just can't eat any of it or else I'll swell up like the Michelin Man.

* The majority of the clothes in my closet are black. Not because I'm goth---because they're slimming.

* I have a weird fascination with anything related to WWI . I am also a Titanic enthusiast.

* I like cowboys and country boys. I've been heavily influenced by Tim McGraw...what female wouldn't be?

* I don't ride roller coasters. Even Splash Mountain at Disney World is a stretch for me.

     Still with me? Here's the 11 questions for the nominees:

1. What's the dumbest thing  you've done in the past 6 months?
2. What's your all-time favorite movie and why?
3. What do you consider attractive in a person?
4. What is the one food you've eaten too much of and gotten sick on?

7 MORE FUN FACTS ABOUT MENO MAMA

* I never got asked to my senior prom. No regrets. Spent the evening raising hell with my gal pals in downtown Ft.Lauderdale.

* I'm obsessed with the moon, but not in a creepy, werewolf sort of way. I don't howl at it or sprout
unruly facial hair.

* I almost named my blog, "Margarita Mama." Yes, I love tequila. Don't judge.

* My house and backyard garden are inhabited by friendly "spirits," and I don't mean the alcoholic kind. Don't ask.

*  I'm an old-fashioned kind of woman who would love to be June Cleaver for a day because I could really rock the apron, pearls and high heels look.

*  My pug licks everybody's knee caps when they sit down on the couch.

*  I'd sell my left kidney right now for a Cadbury Egg. I'm dieting, people! What do you expect???

3. State 10 things about you.
4. Nominate 10 other bloggers.

THE LAST 10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MENO MAMA:

* I'm a renaissance festival freak. I never miss a weekend when the show is in town, and I own 4 different gowns for the occasion. HUZZAH!

*  I love to dance, but seldom get the chance. I joined a gym recently and go to zumba classes. Yeah, this dinosaur can still get low & booty shake with the rest of the ladies in the class!

*  I fell in love with dragons when I was little because of the Puff The Magic Dragon song. Still makes me sad when I hear it.

*  Meno Mama has a dark side few people have seen...trust me, you don't want to....bwhahaha!

*  I have a terrible fear of drowning. I can't look at a picture of a tidal wave without getting slightly nauseous. No surfing for Meno Mama.

*  I wish I had been a teenager in the 1950's just so I could drive around in a pink, 1956 T-bird. One of these days I plan on owning one.

*  I purposely try to fatten up everyone who comes to my house to eat. I'm often mistaken for an Italian mother...

*  Sometimes I laugh about things at inopportune moments...and then I can't stop. Awkward....

*  I love carnivals---the games, the candied apples and the fast rides..as long as my feet don't leave the ground.

  5. A massive thumbs up and congratulations for yet more awards to a deserving person. I feel I know you inside out now, guts n all, ha ha ha. My favourite bit was when you said you listened to 'dubstep' whilst cleaning the house, so I guess you could also be into 'grime and dub' music too. That's just so funny as I pictured you raving it up all night :)

    I will surely check out the links you gave as I'm sure they are all blogs well worth reading. Have a wonderful Easter break and have a nice glass of gin and ice on me:)

    1. Awww thank you, RPD. I just love seeing you here! Yes, I actually DO like dub step! But I was always into techno everything, so it comes as no surprise. I want to go to some raves as well but I'd be the fossil in the crowd and would probably get squashed by all the young ones! I hope you too, have a beautiful Easter holiday and why yes, I will gladly drink that gin! Thanks, RPD!! XO

  21. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I LOVE presents, and awards are a lot like presents. I also love cake, but that's for another day.

    I read every single factoid about you, and I swear, I share like 90% of it in common with you...even the friendly spirits that wander around our properties! I have to say, though, I've never found myself wanting to be Mrs. Cleaver for a day (I'm more like the Beav), and I think I notice women's hands more than men's (unless they are delicate and fragile like a woman's, and then I get creeped out). It is SO awesome getting to know you, and - as I have said before - it is an honor to have you stop by my little corner of the blogdom. Thank you for thinking me worthy! Write on!!

  24. Wow! You really knocked that out of the park! If I had to spew that many facts at once, I think that my head might explode. Now I have two awards to attend to, which means a total of 18 more facts about me, and 21 nominations.
    Oy! My brain already hurts...

    Thank you so much for the award! I probably won't post about it until after the A-Z challenge is over. Or until I stop posting and get booted, because holy cow that's a lot of thinking! I fear that the few that already get my garble in their inbox will undo that action by the time (if) I get to J. It's going to be more insanity than anyone had ever hoped for!

  27. Thank you Mama. Congratulations on all your well deserved awards and for the magazine post. Maybe you should change your name to Menopausal Margarita Mama. I think you're kidding about dub step, right? And omg, guess what? I worked a booth at the Renaissance Fair. We sold Kalimbas and hand made leather halter tops! You rock!

    Replies
    1. OMG you worked there? I wonder which troupe you were with! Of course the one that comes down here to South Florida travels all over the U.S. so maybe it was the same group. And no--I wasn't kidding about the dubstep. I actually DO like it. I wanted to go to Ultra Fest this year in Miami but I knew I would probably get trampled on by all the young people there. I know, I have strange tastes in music...and to think I was raised only on classical....

    1. No pressure! You can pick as many or as few as you want to give an award to! You don't even have to do that much if you don't want to---simply add the award badges to your blog sidebar so everyone can see how much your writing is appreciated. Congrats!

    p.s. you already had my heart, but then you talked about loving all things Titanic...now you've really got me...I'm a Titanic nut too and not just because of the movie with my Leo lol <3
