Style. Profile.

Lo from ye olde World of Wonder nominated me for a Stylish Blogger Award!

If you're one of the few people in my tiny corner of the internet who haven't already  checked her shit out, then you should do so.  And may I add further congratulations for finding a rock big enough to live under.

Anyway, Lo, I accept.  I will also steal your post title joke.  Think of it as my way of saying thanks.  In addition to me actually typing out the letters in the word 'thanks' a couple of times.

Unfortunately, the award comes with levels of responsibility unheard of outside of the Miss America Pageant.
  • Thank and link back to the person giving you the award
  • Share seven things about yourself
  • Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award 
  • Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award

I think I can handle these rules, though I will shortly be breaking one of them.  'cause I don't need your rules, man.

Right, seven things:
  1. I just plain don't like dogs.  Don't get me wrong, individual dogs that I've met are great! Dethtron's dog Loki in particular.  And I certainly see the appeal of dogs.  It's just that, overall, the general idea of what a dog is and what dog ownership entails needs revision.
  2. I once ate an entire 20 oz (it may have been bigger) jar of olives in one sitting on a dare.  DO NOT DO THIS!
  3. I tricked Special Lady Friend into going on our first date by inviting her to a group outing full of people she didn't really know (so she would sit next to me) and who I knew would leave the upscale martini bar early.
  4. I have a slight man-crush on Hoagy from When Cannons Fade fame.  Incidentally, you should hear his Alec Guinness impersonation if you have the chance.
  5. I act like an absolute retard when I'm interacting with my cats.
  6. Out of desperation, I lived with a part time dominatrix for 9 months in college.  Turns out that she was a full time crazy person.  This was my first experience with someone with "for real" mental illness.
  7. I once had an umbilical hernia.  After a night of drinking and strip Jenga I ended up at the doctor's office for my diagnosis with a eyes and a tongue drawn around the smiley mouth my belly button had become.
Now, I feel like nominating 10-15 bloggers is a lot of work and dilutes the awesomeness that the Stylish Blogger Award represents.  Therefore, I only nominate Dick Move.

May Dethtron's reign be long and bloody and may death come swiftly to his enemies.


  1. bwahahahahahahaha.... snort, giggle and otherwise caper about in glee.

    I gotta hear some more about a coupla these...

  2. ha ha! I was at least obliquely involved with 3 of your 7. let the reign of terror begin.

  3. Ha! I eat a jar of olives everyday. That's the only food we got left in Greece anyway...

  4. damn, and there I was thinking that Greeks only ate flaming cheese....

  5. Em, is this deja vu? I thought I already mocked your "feat" of eating a jar of olives since,like, Greeks do that every single day (and wash it down with some feta). But then again I am not sure. Weird day.

  6. Man crush eh?

    'these are not the droids you're looking for....' ;)
