So, here in Lovely Los Angeles, this time of year is known as "award season" where miles of red carpet are laid, gallons of champagne poured, thousands of dresses re rented, bought, ruined & returned, and the local actor/waitress crowds get a few more catering gigs to put on their headshot.
Well, it seems Award Season has graced us here in the blogosphere as well.
I was given this beautiful award by the equally beautiful (if beautiful means had work done) and talented (if talented=drunk) Jill at Yeah. Good Times. She has such an amazing ability to make fun of undeserving people, with a twist of lime, and make it feel like it isn't really you she's making fun of--just your sweater. And those shoes. She is my twin in this, and all things, and our love and friendship will no doubt stand the test of time--if the test of time means having to talk to one another when the vodka bottle is empty. And gosh, what a privilege and honor to receive such a prestigious, and cherished award from such amazing people (if people=heroin addicts). I would like to thank not only Jillsmo, once she stops bogarting the rum bottle, but the hundreds of other mommy bloggers who work tirelessly at making sure their blog posts after mine on Twitter so that my feed gets lost in the shuffle. I'd also like to thank Dale over at wardrobe for making sure that the only items available in my closet are sweatpants and old tees with liquor ads on them. That really impresses the Education team during an IEP. And finally, ... *bites lip* I promised myself i wouldn't do this... finally, i'd like to thank Autism itself--yes, i'm talking to you boo--for giving me that fateful cockpunch--even more remarkable given my gender--that allowed me to write such snarky vitriol and have other laugh at it. Or me. I'm never really sure...
Now, since the Oscars have not yet reared their ugly golden heads, it wouldn't be right to end it right here. So here are my three nominees for awesome Mommy bloggers
1)Apples & Autobots--because she nailed me with one of these last week
2)Big Daddy at Big Daddy Autism because i am still a little unsure about his gender based on his cartoon depictions
3) Jodi at the Mean Mom, because one day she IS going to read my blog and feel guilty that she ignored me.
Thank You. Thank you all. You're all beautiful. You're all...wait. Is that music? Are you playing me off. You cheap bastar.... *wild gesticulating*
