the gabbies - again

Can we just say it's been an embarrassment of riches in the last few weeks and leave it at that? This is why I love the Internet, because if any of you knew me in real life you'd laugh your butts off at the thought of anyone awarding me anything. Except a speeding ticket or a court summons. Or an involuntary stay at a rest home. Maybe even all of the above.

I feel a little like good old Sally Field clutching her Oscar, without the diarrhea of the mouth that has haunted her ever since. I can come up with my own ridiculous comments to haunt me, thank you very much.

And speaking of thank you very much...

It's time for The Gabbies!

This Bodacious Blog Award comes from Jo Beaufoix who, for reasons
known only to herself, continues to humor me in these areas. Surely she has reasons. Doesn't she? Hmmm....perhaps I owe her money and have forgotten about it. That would be just like me lately. Jo, if that's the case throw me a rescue line and let me know, would you? (I'll probably not pay you back, but at least I won't lay awake nights wondering).

I love this one. It's like Bill and Ted on an un-excellent acid trip. And I think you'll all agree that my middle name could very well be bodacious. (Or is it atrocious? I always get those two mixed up). Anyway, I'm passing this on to

la bellina mammina
Akelamalu at Everything and Nothing
Kimberly at Temporary? Insanity
Crystal Jigsaw

This Rockin' Girl Blogger Award comes from Stacie at Heeeeeere Storkey Storkey! Isn't this fab? Because if there's anything I am it's Rockin'. I can rock a pair of granny undies with the best of them. And my bifocals kick ass. (At least the top half does. The bottom part is still a little blurry). Thanks, Stacie! I'm passing this on to

Iota at Not wrong, just different
Ciara at Ramblings and Whatnot
Diana at Piffle
Amy at Blog to the Bone
Kaycie at lost in the Bible belt

The You Make Me Smile Award is from la bellina mammina, the queen of Singapore blogs. Thanks, bella! This is appropriate coming from her as her blog and photos bring a smile to my face whenever I see them. Her children are way cuter and better behaved than mine, but I don't hold it against her. I just pull out pictures of her kids whenever anyone asks to see what my kids look like. Works like a charm. She has all boys too. See? Perfect.

I'm giving this one to

Willowtree at A Dingo's got my barbie
Eileen at A Life of Triggers
Pixelpi at Motes and all things small
Stacie at Heeeeeere Storkey, Storkey!
The Misadventures of Adulthood
Irene at Sweet Wood Talking

This comes from Akelamalu at Everything and Nothing.
The Breakout Blogger Award originated at bobborama dot com
This is how they describe it:

is award casts a spotlight on bloggers who are just beginning to draw lotsa attention — the equivalent of a song with a bullet on Billboard’s Top 100 chart. Lotsa good posts. Lotsa good buzz. These bloggers are going places in a hurry.
Yowsah! How cool is that?? (Does going to the supermarket count as going places? And if it's to pack a school lunch ten minutes before the kids have to leave is that considered going places in a hurry? And if I get a ticket because I'm driving too fast does that count as drawing lots of attention? Just wondering). In any event -thanks, Akela!

This one is going to

laurie at Three Dog Blog
Jen at A Snowball's Chance...
Flowerpot at Flowerpot Days
Jo Beaufoix
Mya at Missing You Already
Dumdad at The Other Side of Paris

Now you all get to give the award to your own Break Out Bloggers … and then send them to this Awards Page for the instructions and code. (these are their instructions).

And just for kicks and giggles, I stole borrowed this from la bellina mammina, just to break up the Awards show monotony a little bit. I love that I am bursting with caffeinated sweetness. Beats the heck out of what I'm normally bursting with, which is uncut BS. I don't think that's an ice cream flavor with a big following however. I wouldn't ask for a tester spoon, lets just put it that way.

Increase volume on music, cut to commercial, roll's a wrap!

Congratulations on the adulations.

Thanks for mine, although I don't know what I could do to it to make it any more kitsch than it already is.

Kaycie said...

Thanks, RC! Now I can say, "I Rock!" Ha.

Would it surprise you to know that I am also coffee ice cream? I thought it was pretty uncanny, especially since only 6% of people who take it score coffee.

But I hate coffee and all things coffee flavored. Hmmmm.

Sweet Irene said...

Thank you very much for the award RC, I sure appreciate it very much. It is a wonderful way to start the day. It made me smile all over!

Sweet Irene said...

Oh, I was so happy, I forgot to congratulate you with your award! Well deserved, RC, applause for you!

Kimberly said...

~sniff sniff~ I've achieved my life's dream! I'm bodacious! I don't know whether to cry or party hard. You made my day! And I'm not the least bit surprised that you're racking up the awards. You're delightful!

Dumdad said...

Congrats on all your well-deserved awards and a big thank you for mine!

Swearing Mother said...

Congrats on your award(s), extremely well deserved, and THANKS SO MUCH FOR MINE. I am well-chuffed (as we say here in Blighty).

Thanks once again, and thanks for your fantastic blog. I love it.

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Wow! Just as I thought I had got to the end, another one came along! You are ever so popular and those awards are very well deserved. Thanks a bundle for my Bodacious Blog award. What an honour! I think I shall put that one near the top!!

Best wishes, Crystal xx

Akelamalu said...

Jo Beaufoix said...

Jo Beaufoix said...

laurie said...

Amy said...

Hey, thanks for the award! Such a cool award, too.

Congratulations to you for all those you've been winning. They are certainly deserved. I look forward to your blog every day.

PixelPi said...

Thanks so much for the award, RC! It has taken it's place on my sidebar.

I am confused. I am mint chocolate chip, a flavor I dislike intensely. I think I need analysis.

ciara said...

merry weather said...

Hi RC - I'm Coffee, but I'd already guessed that :)

Eileen said...

Thank you once again RC! The You Make Me Smile award is extra special to me, especially coming from you. You, who puts a smile (and mostly out and out laughter) on my face on a regular basis. Again, I can't tell you enough how much it means to me! It made my day.
A huge congratulations to you for all of your awards. As I said before you deserve each and every one of them for your amazing blog and because of being such an amazing person.

Stacie said...


Congrats on all of your well deserved awards! They couldn't have gone to a better blogger!

Thanks for mine, too! You rock!

wakeupandsmellthecoffee said...

Well, thank you very much. I love to make people smile. And for people to make me smile. And so you have done. Can I borrow your coffee badge?

Jen said...

Thank you muchly, and I know I'm late, still recovering from the drive from hell late Sunday evening. I shall proudly display my award, and I'll find someone to pass it to!

Maddy said...

Ah yes, but do you have any idea what the bodacious award refers to?
