It seems I’m in need this week of an entire post just to take care of some of the business of blogging… You know, the being tagged, graciously accepting awards, awarding said awards to others who better damn well accept them even more graciously than I, oh and covering my sweet little blogosphere ass on a couple of meme things I was tagged with.
I’m going to have start a better system for memes I’m supposed to do… they fly in one ear and out the other sometimes I remind myself to save them for a day when I have nothing to say, but I’ve been feeling pretty chatty lately.
I also need to apologize today because I looked here on my desktop and realized that way back when I did the question meme, and that I still have a few people to ask questions of. I will be asking them SOON and if they don’t hate me too much maybe they may still want to post them.
There is also the matter of blog listing. We here (by we I mean me and myself but not that “I” bitch because she is power mad and blood thirsty) are going to be pulling down that alphabetical blog love listing. It will be out of commission for a bit but then I hope to bring it back better than ever. Some of the blogs over there will doubtlessly flitter away into the ether as I no longer read them and I don’t know them at all or they seem to have disappeared off the face of the internet. Some new ones (I have been stalking you) will show up as well. If you are afraid I am going to drop you like a rotten peach with a worm wriggling out feel free to drop me a line but I doubt it will happen, I’m not as cruel hearted as all that, this change isn’t about decimation, it’s about organization.
Additionally if you are a lurker or a seldom commenter pop in and say hello, give me a chance to give you some link love in my side bar too.
Now onto the business:
I was tagged by Jo with this listy kind of meme. I am going to follow a bit of the rules, the meme seems to have gotten rather large and while the intent is to give some linky love to those who played before I think the sheer number of links is unwieldy and I certainly won’t click on all of them. I know, it makes me a bad person but I have a schedule to keep. So here is the linky love one, I have decided to keep the 4 bloggers listed ahead of me in order to make a more manageable reading list if you are at all inclined to explore.
This is based on the SEO theory that links to posts inside your blog are more important than links to your home page. Pick three posts that you feel are your best or those you simply want to promote. Your site name is listed with your 3 selected posts beneath. Add the sites and post links of the folks you tagged onto your post. Try to add the site and post links to anyone involved to maximize the effectiveness. Tag a minimum of 5 people! If you get the chance, read the posts from everyone so you can see some really good work from our beloved blogging friends! Make your title a little different from mine to avoid repetitive titles.
Terri Terri Quite Contrary – Just How Immature Are We?, Finding a Voice, So Much More to See than the Game
Amel’s Realm – In Memoriam, On Trust and Relationship, Marriage Review
Choc Mint Girl – Failure in Every Success, Feel Like Singing?, Warm Wishes to Dad
Jo Beaufoix – More Slugs, A Grim Tale, And Miss E does it again
CamiKaos – heart, look, it’s me, friends make strange bedfellows…
And for this super involved link orgy I choose to tag Corey, Lindyloo, Jen and Angel.
Oh my goodness that was a lot of mememeness… but we’re not done there friends and lovers, we’re moving on to some awards.
First the award I need to give out, the coveted Break Out Blogger Award. I’m awarding it to two individuals because I couldn’t choose between their very different awesome posts. So Sybil, Daddy Kaos YOU WIN. Call or e-mail me and we’ll work out what you’d like your prize to look like.
And now onto another lovely award that I received from mcewen: The Bodacious Blog Award!! WOOO HOOO! Thank you so much, and while I am basking in the glow of having my blog called bodacious I will pass it on to a couple of other blogs I think are pretty bodacious too (i like to say it and type it, it’s so fun): Not World Famous and Jo Beaufoix.
Phew, I’m getting tired, are you? There is so much bloggy business to do. There’s still more but I just don’t think I can go on, I’m getting the faints… another day perhaps we will continue on with the desktop meme I was tagged for and any other memes, awards, insanities I may have forgotten…
On a side note, though still related to the business of blogging, some of you may remember a few weeks ago when I was SUPPOSED to be Mr. Fab’s guest co-host for Pointless Drivel Live and I was completely robbed, screwed over and given the shaft by the company that hosts his show when they decided to do a huge site maintenance at the exact moment I was to be blabbing to all of you.
It was sad.
But in an effort to make up for it Mr. Fabulous has scheduled a special Saturday edition of Pointless Drivel Live starring ME. Okay, not starring me, but I will be there chatting away about who knows what.
Are you interested? My self esteem can not handle the thought that you aren’t… It’s this Saturday October 13th at 7pm eastern 4pm west coast. Give me a listen, give me a call, give me some love… and I guess you can give Mr. Fab some attention too.

Okay – well, like, yeah and stuff and like.., I’m not sure – but otherwise its really much right on. Sometimes this is in effect most likely. like you know.., stuff.My head and back hurts – so back to my Ward I go. AND DON’T TALK TO THE SIX FOOT TALL RABBIT! He doesn’t know half of what he says he does.
You’ve been a busy, busy girl. . .
whew…girl. that was a lot to say. :)Thanks for the tag…I think. LOLSo does a person have to go and manually link to each post or do you have the HTML for me to steal?email me….and let me know!
Wow. I am exhausted…..and I have to pee
Thanks for the award, I’ll call you later. Unless Mr. Fab has recognized that his post on anal rape of children was out of line, I can’t possibly recognize that he is worth my time.
crap I had to read the meme instructions 3 times and I’m still not really sure how to do it- thanks so much for the tag ;)
Many, many thanks my strange lover…That was a lot to say. Sorry, people – if I had been home today to chat, maybe she would’ve briefed it… yeah – no. HahaOf course we love your bloggy lovely goodness!Of course I will do my damndest to listen in on Saturday! Whoooohooo!
Whew! I am exhausted from reading all that.The spotlight is on you Saturday, darlin’!
You know what I have to say, Lovely Lady? You started blogging FOR YOU, not other people–don’t ever forget that. I love it when people can’t attend to blog “business” and can’t answer comments and can’t respond to memes and such because it means they’re, I don’t know, spending time with the people and pursuits they love. Hot Mama, your blog will wait, but everyone else? Not so much. The whole point of this crazy blogness is to connect with people, make memories and enjoy life. Sometimes, in the process, the ones with whom we connect are right there in our very own living rooms. I LOVE THAT, because it means that when I come out to Oregon to MIRL with you, I’ll get to MIRL with your lovely family, too. Okay. I might be PMSing.
Oooo thanks dear sweet Cami.And I know what you mean about the linky meme. It got big.Post a link to your Mr Fabulous moment if you can.Looking forward to hearing you, though at least there is your vlog if I can’t get your radio show.
