Wow! It hardly seems like Monday when you only post twice the week before. The Nirvana was experiencing technical and time-space continuum problems. Technical problems were solved by my IT department (the long-suffering blog-Stedman) and the time-space continuum issues will soon be resolved by the time machine I am building in my garage (patent pending).
Today's potluck will not feature any food "that requires baking or cookin ;) Yes, I am THAT mom!" for Greta. I am so glad she is that kind of mom too. So everyone can help themselves to the 1/2 of bag Sam's Club size Dark Chocolate Peanut M&Ms sitting out on the kitchen counter.
We interrupt this potluck for an award ceremony:
JustanotherManicMommy sent this over. Thanks so much JAMM! If you missed the S-JAMM awards...you really missed out.
I would like to pass this award on to the following people*:
1. Manager Mom. Who reposted one of my very favorite posts of all time here.
2. Jenny Gardiner who I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with.
3. Veronica whose blog looks AMAZING. Makes me want to just stay for awhile.
4. Lisa at Very Busy Mom of Four. I had the pleasure of visiting with all 5 last week.
5. Flickrlover at I'd blog that who has one of those blogs that you say, "why didn't I find this sooner?"
*The Nirvana award disclaimer (enacted 7-21-08, ratified on that same date): I can't help it if I am not the only person on the Internet that thinks you are cute, smart, original, creative, hot, excellent, good, great, in need of a hug, in need of a bouquet of flowers, in need of a poem, and/or funny. I cannot be held accountable for the actions of others that may or may not have resulted in a duplication of the award in question. Accepting the award is up to you, but once you do accept said award if I hear any crap about said award I am revoking said award because if I gave you said award you deserved said award so deal with said award. Thank you very much.
This week I received visitors Googling, "alternative fuel bus" and "alternative fuel buses" and also "alternative toilet plungers". Just call me your alternative to ACTUAL knowledge. That would make a good tag line...
Reid (5) asked, "What would happen if a chicken laid the WRONG kind of egg?"
What is up with Holly's coccyx?
Present and accounted for.
Let's find out who is Peep of the Week...
In response to my weekend photo post, Car Wash. Car Wash:
"It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye to Turtle Wax."
Thanks Tootsie Farklepants for that sage warning. You are Peep of the Week!
Would it be super politically incorrect for Rhett (2) to be yelling "No way Jose!" in a Mexican Restaurant?
Despite the Nirvana difficulties last week, it was an awesome week. My "Holly throws herself under the alternative fuel bus" post was featured on Blog Nosh. I am down-right giddy. Thanks so much Blog Nosh!
Blog-Stedman and I both made the final table at the poker tournament last Monday evening. It was the first gleam of poker success for me within the walls of a Casino. I ended up a very shocked third who may have overstepped poker room decorum by dancing around screaming how fierce I was with wads of cash in hand.
And now it is time for...
What is in Holly's fruit bowl?
All my in poker cash (just kidding).
It doesn't get much better than that. May your Monday induce fierce dancing...
