Dani G at I'm Just That Way and That's Just Me and Heather at Living, Learning, Laughing & Loving with Autism have bestowed upon me the Memetastic Award complete with this very classy graphic created by Jill over at Yeah. Good Times.

As it is my very first award ever--in the blogosphere, at least—I did receive that award at the Senior banquet in high school, "Most Likely to Write a Blog that Six People Will Actually Read." Anyway, I am thrilled to receive it and here are the rules—edited only slightly for the benefit of my ten-year old.

1. You must proudly display the absolutely disgusting graphic that I have created for these purposes (put it in your post, you don't have to put it in your sidebar, I think that would seriously be asking too much). It's so bad that not only did I use COMIC SANS, but there's even a little jumping, celebrating kitten down there at the bottom. It's horrifying! But its presence in your award celebration is crucial to the memetastic process we're creating here. If you need a higher resolution version... I totally have one!!

2. You must list 5 things about yourself, and 4 of them must be bold-faced lies. Just make something up, we'll never know; one of them has to be true, though. Of course, nobody will ever know the difference, so we're just on the honor system here.

3. You must pass this award on to 5 bloggers that you either like or don't like or don't really have much of an opinion about. I don't care who you pick, and nobody needs to know why. 

So, here are my five things:
I was once stuck in my car overnight in a snowstorm, eating my way through the groceries I had just purchased.
I try to jog five miles every day.
I was once stood up for a date because my date had been thrown in jail and chose not to use his one phone call to phone me.
I flunked out of law school.
I am a really bad liar—it makes my left eye twitch.

And the winner is…
Mum Accepting Autism
My Life as an Ungraced, Unhinged and Unwilling Draftee into the Autism Army
Mommy to Two Boys
Floortime Life Mama
MOM - Not Otherwise Specified


  1. I don't need a snow storm to eat my way through a car load of groceries. So I'm going with "bad liar" as being the true one. Btw, the art work in the award is awesome. I love the little bear on the bottom of the logo.

  2. Wow, this award must be making your left eye twitch like CRAZY.

  3. The bad liar cannot be the true one because these are all really good. I'm gonna say the snowstorm one is true. Because I know you live where it's cold and you are very intrepid and you probably buy really great groceries.

    Congrats on your first award...and thanks for passing this along to me...I hope I'm in the "like" category!

  4. I'm gonna go with the bad liar one

  5. I'm definitely going with number five, except I don't think your high school classmates had ever conceived of a blog!

  6. Okay, what does it say about me that no one thought the jogging lie was true! Actually, you were all wrong. The correct (truthful)answer was number 3. Who knew that sliding onto a major league baseball field during a rain delay was considered felony trespassing?
