Sunday Bloggy Business

Debbie Yost from Three Weddings tagged me with this meme. Here are the rules:

1. Write the title to your own memoir using 6 words.
2. Post it on your blog.
3. Link to the person that tagged you.
4. Tag five more blogs

In case anyone missed it, I linked and posted already. That leaves me to do the meme and tag others. I'd write my memoir as:

The Glue Holding The Family Together

And if you think you want to argue that point I'll be glad to come visit you for an extended period of time and we'll all watch my family fall apart together.

I'm not big on tagging, so if you want to do this, it's all yours to run with.


I've also been collecting awards from time to time and have been totally remiss in giving these things out again. My bad.

Colleen at Wine Please has been incredibly generous with the bloggy bling love and I really appreciate it. (Thanks, dear!)

I love these blogs and would like you to take this award as a token of my affection.
Law School Sucks
Burgh Baby
I'm Being Held Hostage

Colleen also gave me this one, as well as Melissa at Hope for the Hopeless.

I find this highly amusing. I love that you guys think of me as a tiara wearing blogger, but in reality it would get knocked off while I'm cleaning kennels and chasing Micah down to put clothing on his nekkid self. I'm passing this right along to some other wonderful tiara wearers that could stand a better chance of keeping it on. You guys deserve this.
Fishsticks And Fireflies
Madame Queen
You Don't Have to Like Me

Michelle at Big Blueberry Eyes gave me the Excellent Blog award:

And I think these blogs are excellent and pass it along to you.
Anglophile Football Fanatic
The Mom Bomb
The Human Race

Jennifer at Siguendo Mi Catracho awarded me the Blog of Distinction award.

This was created by Working Mum On The Verge to honor blogs that make you, "think, laugh, cry or sigh." The only rule is you should pass it to another 5 blogs.
My Very Last Nerve
My Chaos My Bliss
Praying for Parker
We Are That Family
Don Mills Diva

Im Being Held Hostage gave me this fun award:

Wine Please
Choosing My Own
Honest And Truly


I'll finish up with a last meme and that concludes tonight's bloggy business.

Tootsie Farklepants tagged me with this.

Five Classes That Should Have Been Taught in School

1. The Low-Down On Prince Charming

Topics under this would include:
*That Perfect Man Isn't
*Prince Charming Has Armor That Needs Polished Frequently
*Invest in a GPS Because He'll Never Stop the Carriage to Ask for Directions.

2. Sex Education

You think they teach that now, but they barely touch the tip of the iceberg. Get a clue schools - kids know how to have it! They need to know that:
*Sex Is A Powerful Tool If Used Correctly (for girls)
*One Night of Bliss Will Not Make Up For a Lifetime of Raising Children
*If You Want to Get Lucky Help Out Around The House You Moron (for the boys)

3. Parenthood Isn't All Pink and Blue Powder Puffs

Topics are:
*How Your Body Changes and Why You'll Never Get It Back
*Poop Comes In All Shapes, Colors and Consistencies and Will Cover Everything Within A 5 Mile Radius
*How Having Kids Can Strip You of the Desire to Ever Have Sex Again

4. Reading

Yes, they teach this, too. But it should be doubly reinforced for men. Try these:
*Did You Read the Instructions?
*I SAID Did You Read The Instructions?!
*For the Love of Pete Read the Instructions!

5. Shopping 101

For the boys:
*She'll Spend Every Penny You Make And Then Some, Don't Encourage Her
*She'll Make Life Miserable If You Curb Her Shopping
*How to Get a Good Paying Job to Pay For All That.

For the girls:
*How To Make Him Forget About How Much Money You Just Spent
*He'll Never Care About How Much You Saved So Just Don't Even Bother
*If You're Smart You'll Never Take Him Along.


Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

Thanks for the award, dear. I think that shopping 101 should be mandatory. You know? I knew an older lady who literally taught a class at Ole Miss to the rich sorority girls on how to balance a checkbook. And, part of her job was to call their Daddys to ask for more money & she said 9/10 times they said, "Just like her mother."

Kim said...

Your classes gave me a good giggle. Almost made me forget the weekend theme of potty training though.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Thanks for the love! And WOW was that a lot of linky love!

Nap Warden said...

Congrats on the bling...and way to catch up on the memes! I need to do that...

Kellan said...

"And if you think you want to argue that point I'll be glad to come visit you for an extended period of time and we'll all watch my family fall apart together." - this had me really laughing!

Congrats on the great awards - you deserve all of them!

Take care- Kellan

I like the "If you want to get lucky..."

Debbie Yost said...

I think that sounds like fun. Let's set up video cams, meet in a hotel, drink wine and eat cheese and watch our husbands go crazy! Of course, then we'd have to pick up the pieces with a hangover.

Thanks for playing along.

Michelle said...

I love all the awards you so deservingly won. Very cool. Now for my stupid question. What exactly (and how -- I need specifics for the Luddites) am I supposed to do with my beautiful award? Thank you, Karen!

Flea said...

You are absolutely hilarious. My Hunny needs the Reading class. Unfortunately, I already know all about the sex and parenting classes. :(

Colleen said...

Thanks for the love!!!

And do you have those boys classes in home-schooling materials? I need to work on Justin and then train my two boys while they're young...especially on the Reading class (argh!).

Tranny Head said...

Thanks, man! You rawck!

Thanks, man! You rawck!

1. Your memoir is PERFECT! Oddly enough, I think of you often when my world seems to be crumbling around me - if you can keep-up with everything that is your world, I can certainly try to come close!

2. THANK YOU for the love! You made my day!

3. I think they should throw "Breastfeeing Is NOT A Form of Birthcontrol" in with the Sex Ed. classes. Could you imagine how much better off young adults would be if they had actually been taught some of those things?!

The Sports Mama said...

Congrats! And thanks! I think that tiara will go perfectly with all the sports equipment here at my house, don't you? :)

I love the Prince Charming class! That is a very different perspective with a daughter. On my end, I'd have had to offer:

Princesses: Hot or Not?
*If she can feel that stupid pea, you can't take her camping!
*If you have to explain the game, she's not the one!

Andrea said...

Oh how I should have been in your school!! I could have used some of those classes way back when!! LOL!! I love the "How your body changes and why you'll never get it back!!" Oh how that is so true and so very sad!

We are THAT Family said...

Awwww! Thanks! New goal: I'm challenged to make you laugh, cry and sigh all in the same post! Thanks, you're a sweetie!

JennyH said...

Those are funny!!

Don Mills Diva said...

Thank you so much!

I am honored!

Gina said...

I'm just getting caught up after days of no computer time. What a nice surpise. I hope I make you laugh and not cry, since I don't generally tell sad or touching stories and if you were crying, it would mean that you were so disgusted by my jackassery that you cried about it. That would suck ;)

I was really hoping I would get a Tiara award. But alas, I fail again.
