An Award! You really really like me!

Bonnie, of Original Art Studio has just graciously bestowed on me the Over the Top Award. I don't quite get how whole girl in the apron is over the top, but Bonnie didn't conceive it, she just passed it on so I won't demand an explanation. The only thing I can think of is that the person who came up with this must have a boring life indeed if wearing an apron (with clothes underneath no less!) is to be considered over the top... Of course, me in an apron would definitely be over the top - y'all know about me and kitchens - not so much, right? But that's a whole other non-award thing.

Honestly, I'm not quite sure whether this is an honour or whether Bonnie has decided she hates me because this one involves a LOT of work. But seeing as I'm Blogless inMontreal - as opposed to Sleepless wherever, here we go...

The rules are:

Copy and change the answers to suit you and pass it on. It's quite tricky to use only one word answers! Once you have filled it out be sure to pass it on to 6 of your favorite bloggers. Alert them that they have been awarded! Have fun!

1. Where is your cell phone? Nowhere
2. Your hair? Grey
3. Your mother? Wise
4. Your father? Dead
5. Your favorite food? Edible
6. Your dream last night? Rock bands and motels (granted, it's more than one word, but there's no way to distill it to one word. And as for the dream... don't ask.)
7. Your favorite drink? Blood
8. Your dream/goal? Breathing
9. What room are you in? Office
10. Your hobby? Living
11. Your fear? Winter
12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? 54
13. Where were you last night? Um....
14. Something that you aren't? Male
15. Muffins? Sure
16. Wish list item? Python
17. Where did you grow up? Around
18. Last thing you did? This
19. What are you wearing? Clothes
20. Your TV? Off
21. Your pets? Dead
22. Friends? Some
23. Your life? There
24. Your mood? Altered
25. Missing someone? No
26. Vehicle? Yes
27. Something you're not wearing? Leather
28. Your favorite store? Book
29. Your favorite color? Red
30. When was the last time you laughed? Today
31. Last time you cried? Saturday
32. Your best friend? Imaginary
33. One place that I go to over and over? Loo
34. One person who emails me regularly? Viagra
35. Favorite place to eat? Plate

That was ridiculously long - even for one word answers...

My six:

Choochoo - cause she's more than slightly insane, bored out of her tree and this might undull her for five minutes.

Lime - cause she's great at memes. Seriously, have you ever seen what Lime does to a meme? It's almost scary.

Suldog - cause he's, well, over the top. Plus he does wonderful things with awards - namely rip the person who sent it to him to shreds. I'm a masochist I am.

Geewits - her brain is a marvelous place. Plus she'll keep it for herself and not pass on the agony.

Fragrant Liar - well, you read her birthday post. What? You didn't ?? Get yourself over to her blog right away!

Jocelyn - Read her stories. You'll understand.

Rachel - 'Cause she seems to be into lists this week, and this could be construed as a list if you have enough imagination.

Yeah, I know, that's seven. I took the time to answer 35 dumb questions, so I have earned the right to do as I please... Rules Schmules.

I screwed up here and my post put itself down on October 2 when it was drafted. So here are the comments, as I deleted the screwup

From Suldog

Holy sheet, woman! You want me to answer 35 questions? You do remember how wordy I am, right? So, you expect me to give out with maybe 3,000 words to get this damned award? If I do have to give out with 3,000 words, about 1,200 of them will be concerning your body odor. Are you sure you don't want to re-think this?

Oh, before I forget... Thanks!

Yeah, I'll do it, but it will be a little while. I'm going on vacation soon, and have something already planned for before and after, so perhaps around the 25th? You can wait that long to be filleted, right?)

From Rachel

Ha! Love it, and you're right its PERFECT! LOL

Thanks, and btw Loved your answers!

From Suldog (again)

By the way, yes, I realize they're supposed to be one-word answers. Me doing one-word answers is even more ridiculous than me doing this in 3,000 words. It would be like a bird trying to fly with one feather.

Jazz said...

Suldog - One word. You can do it, you can!!! I have every confidence in your abilities... Oh, and I'm going on vacation at the end of this week too, so yes, I can wait to be hung drawn and quartered.

Rachel - it's the list thing...

Hagelrat said...

lol, of course we love you.

Jeaux said...

I always thought your blog was a high ridge, just below the tree line, but what do I know? Congratulations, Jazz chick. Your likability is, of course, a given. I don't get the apron either. I would think the Over The Top award would feature a hat.

Gaelyn said...

That was fun (glad I'm NOT on the list). Why not change the award picture to something more over the top.

Jocelyn said...

Your first paragraph here is so damn funny. I don't get why it's Over the Top, either.

Anyhoodle, your responses manage to evoke a great deal even with only using one word for each. Personally, you know that'll hurt. I may give it a try...but mostly I just want to read Lime's. HEE.

Thanks, toots!

secret agent woman said...

Yeah, an odd award design given the title. And anyway shouldn't it be a one-word award? Like just "Award."

choochoo said...

ONE word?!? Don't you know me at all? When do I ever use ONE word for anything? :O

Jazz said...

Hagelrat - :-)

Jeaux - yes! a top hat!

Gaelyn - I'd have no freaking idea what to use!

Joce - you must give it a try, you have no choice. You've been chosen. The gods of all things award will get you otherwise.

SAW - I'd never thought of that. You're right.

Choo - Now's the time to start. You can do it. I have faith. Or something.

Pouty Lips said...

Hmmm. I have to wonder about a girl who would lay a meme on Suldog. Lime is great at memes.

Cynjon said...

Rules shmules, indeed.

geewits said...

You are so fun and snarky! I particularly love numbers 12, 19, and 33. But now I want to know why you cried on Saturday and pat you on the head.

On a side note, the inconsistent grammar of questions 33 & 34 is a bit disconcerting. Why did it suddenly switch to first person?

Jazz said...

Pouty - It's all about his reaction. I've already given him an award just to see his reaction (hilarious), and combining a meme to it... well all hell should break loose.

Cynjon - Indeed. Who needs 'em?

Geewits - to the first question: Hormones. To the second: cause it was probably written by a 15 year old like most of these things seem to be.

XUP said...

You're heee-larious. And it really means a lot to me that you didn't tag me on this relentless, gestapo-like interrogation "award".

Jocelyn said...

Darlin', YES, you can come live with me. Bring the Mr., of course.

I have a feeling wine sales in my region are about to skyrocket.
