I Feel So Honored...

Last month, Binky nominated me for best Canadian blog in some blog contest. She meant well, but apparently nobody other than the handful of people who stumble across me daily know I even exist.

Suffice it to say, I didn't make it past the nominations round.

But that's okay, because for the first time in what seems like ever I glowed with pride and was humbled that somebody other than my husband thought I was cool.

I now follow Binky around and pester her every damn day. She's acquired her very own stalker fan.

Thanks Binky. I love ya. In a non-sexual, completely anonymous, bloggy type of way.

Then Catherine, that's right, queen of the Bad Mother's, informed me that she nominated me in another blog contest, Share The Love Blog Awards.

Get this, for the Most Inspirational blog.

Quit laughing.

While I would have liked to be known for my awesome ramblings, my sense of style or my witty comments, Catherine thinks I'm inspiring.

(Take that Mom! How do you like them apples?) Yes, I do know that my mom doesn't read my blog, but it still feels good to say that.

I'm not going to ask for your vote, but I am going to ask that if you have some time to spare to go visit this page. Peruse some of the wonderful candidates. There are some mighty fine woman writers out there. And I'm pleased as punch to be included in such a group of talented ladies.

And if you happen to find my posts about duct taping kids to a wall, talk of nipple rings and tattoos, sex education and the odd post about how it feels to drag your ass out of bed every damn day with an angel on your back (very similar to a monkey, only heavier, with more feathers), then feel free to toss me a vote.

I don't know if I would, but I'm sure glad somebody out there finds me inspiring.
