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.
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:
- The conversation with my Imaginary Life Coach
- One of the many, many times in which I totally reinvented myself for five days before lapsing back into sweet, sweet sloth
- In Which I Give Dick Cavett the Business Re: Homeschoolerz are not Dum
- Totally Futile Protest Post Against Lego for Girls (futile because of course my daughter received every single one of them for Christmas)
- And, because I go back and read this whenever I feel overwhelmed by my current circumstances, this from 2006: That time we were trying to sell our house while a two-year-old was pooping on the carpet
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.
