I feel pretty, and witty, and SHEENAZING

It’s a dream I’ve held since fourth grade: to finally be recognized as SHEENAZING. I credit, as always, my sweet dance moves.

My thanks, complete with pop-n-lock, to whomever nominated me in two categories for the Sheenazing Blogger Awards organized by Bonnie from A Knotted Life! Voting is open now through Thursday evening, with the timeline somewhat dependent upon whether or not “Person of Interest” is a rerun. I love a Catholic blog awards contest that keeps it real.

I’m nominated for Funniest Blog and Best Looking Blog; I credit the latter to my mastery of a smoky eye and 5-pound earrings.

Oh, yeah, I'm Sheenazing alright

I am realizing that the entire punchline setup for this blog post depends on your knowledge of who Sheena Easton is

As far as Funniest Blog, I totally know I am not going to win that category, either, but I shall submit a portfolio nonetheless. These posts from last year may or may not represent the average level of wacky hijinks around here on a daily basis:

What do you mean, you don’t have time to go back through my archives?

There are many terrific blogs nominated in several categories, and I encourage you to go forth and vote! Along with the categories I’m going to lose, there are also polls for Coolest Blogger (surprisingly, Sheena did not come through with a nomination for me in that one), Most Inspiring, Best Lifestyle Blog, Best Link-Up EVAH, Best Underappreciated Blog, Best Mommy Blog, Smartest Blog, Blog with the Best Memes, and Best Blog by a Catholic Man. Thanks to Bonnie for putting all of this together in honor of…wait a minute…

…it has come to my attention that I had the wrong Sheenazing celebrity. These awards are actually in honor of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, known for using new forms of media (particularly television) to evangelize.

I am kind of amazed my mother let me listen to this song 500 times now that I read the lyrics. I thought it was about karate. “Strut, POW!”

    When I grow up I hope I can half as funny as you; and apply coral lipstick and the smokey eye with the same precision.
    I think a celebratory pop and lock routine is due via YouTube if you win. I know it would be a small consolation to me.

      2. I am consoled in my loss by the fact that I now will no longer live under the shadow of possibly having to post a GIF-able video of my pudgy suburban self trying to pop-n-lock.

    You left out the post in which the baby does the humor routine about the ceiling fan. It’s been years, and we still quote that one. “The ceiling fan! Am I right?”

    It is perplexing to me that Sheena Easton is complaining about being treated like a sex object in a video where she forgot to put her pants on.

    I, too, was a Sheena Easton wannabe back in the day. There may be a cassette tape somewhere with me pretending to speak with her accent and then sing her song rather horribly. Ahh the good ole days. Good luck on your bloggy awards!
