    Okay, I may be chubby, but someone reads my blog! That’s very encouraging. Listen all you silent readers, you should know I’m an insecure writer always searching for validation and praise and the occasional obsequious comment! So I was heartened when compatriot Old Dog New Tits nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. ODNT, when can I expect the stretch limo equipped with a young Prosecco, a jazz quartet and a mini-jacuuzi for Henri et moi?

    But, before we’re whisked away to the crumbling ruins of Pompei and a cove on the island of Capri where we will be magically transformed into that stunning couple in all the Aqua Velvet ads, I want to fulfill the requirements for this nomination:

    1. NOMINATE 15 FELLOW BLOGGERS

    If you don’t know these fascinating, irreverent trailblazers you should! They will tell you how to fix your woeful sex life while tippling Kettle One, reading Sarte, decoding NASA’s Html, becoming less of an unfulfilled dilettante and more of an enlightened yogi Kama Sutra master. That’s just the tip of what these folks have to offer. (And no, that’s not what I meant by “tip.” Get your minds out of the gutter!)

    MARRIED MAN SEX LIFE
    THE FLYING CHALUPA
    THE BADGER HUT
    ANN’S RANTS
    I AM NOT THE BABYSITTER
    BETWEEN PARENTS
    GOOD DAY REGULAR PEOPLE
    JOHANNA SAWALHA/DESIGN YOUR WHOLE LIFE
    THE SASSY CURMUDGEON
    THE BOOK MAMA
    MOMS LA
    YVONNEINLA
    FUSSY
    TECH. FOOD. LIFE.
    VODKAMOM

    2. INFORM THE BLOGGERS OF THEIR NOMINATION

    Oh, I will be informing them. Right before Christmas…Get to work, you bastards! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

    3. SHARE 7 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT MYSELF

    In a 1996 journal entry I wrote that I thought Henry was going to be my husband. That was two years before we had our first date.

    I camped overnight in a 1959 Cadillac Hearse with Brandon Lee (son of Bruce Lee).

    I wrote a Dear John letter to David Schwimmer before he starred in Friends. Guess who’s laughing now??

    During puberty the most popular boy in school told me my hair looked like pubic hair. Now he’s homeless in Hawaii.

    I danced for INXS at the 1990 VMAs, but my Suicide Blonde wig started slipping off so I was never on-camera (or I’m just making this up!)

    I lived on a 70-foot sailboat docked in Antioch, California for six months when I was 9. The harbor master was shot by his wife for having an affair with the wife of my third stepdad. Ahh, the ’70s.

    I pet (or is it petted?) a leopard on a wildlife preserve in South Africa. I was terrified when the leopard emitted a deep, loud “RRRRRRR! RRRRRR! RRRRRR!” I turned to the wildlife preserve guy. “Is she growling?” I asked. “No,” he said, “She’s purring.”

    4. THANK THE BLOGGER WHO NOMINATED YOU

    My dearest Old Dog New Tits – you’ve been through a lot lately and you’ve handled it with great humor and equanimity. If the ship were going down, you’d be bailing water. You are a true lady and I so appreciate the fact that you think enough of my work as a blogger to nominate me for this award. I look forward to reading you in the future and hopefully meeting you in person someday. xoxox

    1. You’re awesome. And Versatile. And my mind’s not even in the gutter, really…

      Thanks for the nomination!

    2. Carrie says:

      FABULOUS!

      You and the award.

      And the fact that you stalked David Schwimmer. And the fact you molested Brandon Lee. And the fact that you had pubic hair during puberty!

      Wait. You know what I mean.

      After reading for just a few months…why do none of your 7 random things surprise me?

      Love. =)

    3. [...] I’d like to thank the lovely Shannon Colleary for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger award.  You can catch Shannon’s very funny blog at the Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful. [...]

      Honored!! Thanks.

    5. Girl, you got right on it. On Christmas Eve, too. Color me impressed. Or purple. They both work. Anyway, considering the fact that your ‘Seven Things’ could kick my ‘Seven Things’ ass, I’d love to arrange a meeting someday. Coffee, Vegas. Whatever you’re in the mood for.

    6. Oh, and a few housekeeping questions:

      (1) Do you have a Twitter account I could follow? I do. Same name FYI.
      (2) I think I followed your blog/weekly newsletter. Think. It’s 1:40am so who knows. :)
      (3) May I list you on the ODNT blogroll?

      Thanks, lady.

      • Shannon Colleary says:

        Yes to everything. Twitter is just Shannoncolleary. Would be honored to be on your blogroll. And so glad you’re getting newsletter. Also, I want to keep abreast of your boobs. Will sign up for your updates.

    7. I’m here! I’m here! Better late than never, right? And Brandon Lee? For real? Swoon. You’re so cool.

      Congrats and THANK YOU!
