Barbies on Holiday and Giving Good Blog

Tracey, from Green-Eyed Momster, has awarded me the I Give Good Blog Award. Thank you Tracey! The title of the award sounds a little slutty, but beggars can't be choosy. The rules are: Make a cocktail (no problem), pick out some of your favorite bloggers (again no problem, as most people tend to "love" everybody when they're drinking). Send this award to 4 of them and tell them why you think they give good blog.


Prunella de ville: Because she makes me laugh really hard.
Miss Yvonne of Yo Mama's Blog: Because she makes me laugh really hard.
Vic of What Were You Thinking: Because she makes me laugh really hard.
The Peach Tart: Because she makes me laugh really hard.

Maybe it's not such a good idea to pick these award recipients when you're drinking, because I just want a good laugh now, and it's like one big funny joke. (making a serious face now)

Moving on.
Drollgirl posted some photos by Laurie Simmons that were pretty cool. So I shoved a couple of Barbies and some post cards into my scanner to do a kind of a tribute/response. (obviously, the award cocktail hasn't worn off yet)

Finally, Tuesday August 25th is Global non-compliance day. No spending. For more info on this you could do a search on global non-compliance or Max Igan's film "Fight the New World Order with global non-compliance". It's a great idea, actually. One day where no one spends anything, thus sending the bankers and politicians into a frenzy. Sweet.

What?. . . .you were expecting more?


The Peach Tart said...

Oh, Diane, you crack me up and make me laugh really hard!

Congrats! And, no I wasn't drinking but I always love everybody!
I'll get all of my shopping done today and I will participate on Tuesday. What a great idea and it will be easy since I don't have much to spend anyway!!
Hugs and love,

The Peach Tart: I'm very interested to see who you pass the award on to.

drollgirl: I'm so glad you like the barbie shot, and the no spending idea (which was passed on to me).

erin: Yea! Now maybe you can give a rebel yell to your friends?

SkylersDad: Thanks, whatever. I was sure any guy would love the idea of a slutty award.

Bella: It does sound slutty, doesn't it? DOESN'T IT?

Tracey: Thanks for the support in more ways than one. Hugs. xo

Dutch donut girl said...

Congratulations on your award!
I just saw the picture of those big boobs so of course I'm intrigued now.
I'm off to explore your blog :)

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog, btw!!

Miss Yvonne said...

Thank you for the award! I LOVE slutty awards! They are the best awards ever because they're all "hey come on over here and pick me up. *wink wink*" and they totally don't care if you didn't take a shower that day and maybe you don't call them the next morning but it's okay...because they're slutty.

Vic said...

Thanks for the award, Diane! (I blushed and giggled a little bit..)

Now I've definitely got to start thinking about who to pass it on to (also a couple of others? I'm such a procrastinator sometimes...)

diane said...

Pru: Tea? You're kidding, right?

Marian: Wow, 4 "honey's", 1 "darling", and 1 "dear"! I don't think I've ever felt so loved.

Dutch donut girl: Welcome, you're a brave girl to come here. Big boogies are just the tip of the iceberg.

Miss Yvonne: You are so right about the "no shower" thing. Aren't slutty awards the best?

Vic: Hey, Mo. S. never gave me a shipping address for those glasses. They're yours if you want them, just give me an address, by e-mail, which is dyejobslye at hotmail dot com.

Cait said...

I hadn't expected it to be tomorrow. Dang, I'm suppose to go to the movies.

Thanks so much for the note. oh..I'm just not sure how sick he is.

diane said...

Cait: Maybe it's something that can be fixed, like stop smoking and drinking. I knew someone who was elderly and had a heart attack. He couldn't smoke or drink after that, and even though he only lived a couple of more years, those last years were wonderful.

JFK Jean said...

Geez, if Global non-compliance day was on any other day within the last week and a half, I would have been golden! Tuesday I started my spending when I landed back on U.S. soil....congrats on yet another award. You simply know how to win.

Girl Interrupted said...

Mmmm ... cocktails!!

Congrats on your slutty award Diane :P
