I know - it's always a monumental event - let's move on, shall we?
This whole 'peer blog award' thing - it's something I never even knew existed when I first started blogging. They are like the People's Choice Awards, except once you receive it, you have to pass it on to someone else. Many of us, including me, are kind of uncomfortable passing it on; like it's icky. Then I thought... wait, that's not like a People's Choice Award at all - it's like an STD!
Then I mulled it over for a while.
Yes. They're almost exactly like an STD, with the exception being that we are honored and flattered when these awards are passed on to us from other fellow bloggers, instead of being ashamed of having to request a prescription. OK, so that's probably a big difference, but you get where I'm going with this, right?
Without further adieu, I present the STD:
Sexy & Talented Diploma.
I want to pass on this awesome STD to all my deserving nearest and dearest.
Here are the rules:
1. Make up ONE totally ridiculous story about yourself that is a complete rip-off from a movie. It can be as long or short as you want; clean or crass as you want.
2. Pass it on to whomever you feel is deserving of this STD - or accept it and keep it for yourself; it's your blog - it's your choice.
I'M PRO CHOICE!
3. If you choose to accept this STD, please link your acceptance post back here. (I'll keep it open for at least all summer.) There's a very good chance that I'll be sporadically choosing random winners to get some of my
I know you want some!
My mom was going to marry this guy, and, like, even though I didn't hate him, I was not entirely cool with it. We went out for Chinese food one night and my mom was being a total cunt rag. Then the next day, I looked down and saw my mother's wrinkly body... ON ME! I was like, "What the fuck is going on?" Then she ran into my room and get this: SHE LOOKED LIKE ME! My mom was all like, "What the hell?" So, yeah, we had totally switched bodies! It was fucked up.
I could have listed at least 40 here, but like any good STD, I'm hoping it will spread around to everyone that deserves it. I am listing a bit more than normal, but I need to boost the first wave. It was much too hard to choose a reasonable number, so I used the RANDOM generator to whittle my list down to 15! (I'm serious, by the way, I couldn't decide, which is just another reason why I hate these fucking things.) I therefore bestow this STD to the following awesome blogs, to which I love each and every one.
YOU ALL DESERVE THIS STD:
GO FORTH & POPULATE!
BTW. Including this instance, I've mentioned the acronym "STD" 10 times in this post - take that SEO; I'm ready for ya!
Come and get me!
Come and get me!
Ooooh. I usually just ignore these thing, but this one I might do! Thanks!!ReplyDelete
Re count!!!! lolReplyDelete
Nice work Lady E womaness
Thank you. I've never had an STD but this isn't as bad as I imagined. When does it start to burn?ReplyDelete
Oh, common. You get to so something with a MOVIE - that's F-U-N.
You were on the list, but it was luck of the draw. I'm horribly indecisive when it comes to this crap.
I'm not sure when, but I've heard it's a good kind of burn!
I feel itchy now...ReplyDelete
he he thanks for the award sista! I'll be back to link up my post later today... hopefully... lol
OMGGGGGGGG! I just got an STD from the one and only cuntdragon! This feels amazing..I'm not even going to the doctor for an antibiotic...I'm keeping it forever! I'm truly honored!ReplyDelete
Love your story too! ;)
I'm so glad you like! I have no idea why I thought of that dumb movie - maybe because I keep seeing Lindsay Lohan on TMZ every damn day. LOL
My first STD and I feel FAN-Fucking-TASTIC!!!! Thanks Lady!!!ReplyDelete
It's about time a "real" award was made up! Hahaha!!!
This is one I'm proud to share!
I laughed my ass off. I didn't necessarily steal your joke at all. Blogging awards vs STD's, that is. I was typing up my Monday blog about 2pm Sunday.ReplyDelete
This means you and I are in sync, my dear. Great minds think alike, and all that jazz. :)
So anyway, I gave you blogging herpes today, so go get it. Pimp my blogpost because I'm awesome, then spread the infection around. Like a boss.
I missed round 1 of your STD award, but I know I'll get it sooner or later? Why? I'm a promiscuous blogger. I'll catch it sometime, even if I don't mean to.
god i love ya! it's a good one! xReplyDelete
This is wrong on so many levels. :)ReplyDelete
It's OK - when I eventually post my Versatile Award acceptance post, my syphilis joke will look like I stole it from you. HA.
I sincerely hope you get my STD.
I'm only jesting you cunt dragon you. I shall take my STD with pride and itch and scratch it until it's raw then pass it on to some unsuspecting people - although I may just ask if someone wants it...I hate these things too. It may take me an AGE to get to it though, I've got so many blog posts and memes in the background that I haven't got around to. I'll see....if you're nice to me I'll push it to the front ;) xxReplyDelete
I wish I had an STD, it'd mean that I'd gotten laid...ReplyDelete
Glass half full! I like your thinking! LOL
My first STD. I am so excited.. and honored you chose me to spread my newly acquired STD. Should I go to my GYNO? hummmmmmm
Look at you starting up an STD! I'm so proud. Your site looks awesome by the way.ReplyDelete
There's nothing like a good STD to shake things up. YAY! Thank you....Now I have to actually make my brain work so I can properly accept the disease, I mean award. I just took a nap so it shouldn't be long now. Thanks chica!ReplyDelete
i've never seen that movie...sounds intriguing.ReplyDelete
Oh yeah. It totally got an Oscar snub cuz Lohan was stellar.
PS. If this is your 1st time on my site, you should know I was being a bitch just then :)
HELL YA - ANY HOOKER SHOULD BE THIS LUCKY!
Oh wait... you didn't pick me.ReplyDelete
I mean you're random thingy didn't! Not you!ReplyDelete
As the creator of the award, I say SPREAD IT!
You KNOW I love you.
Thanks to you Stephanie, now I have STD!Jessica is spreading it like wild fire Lady!ReplyDelete
I love spreading STD's!!! How did you know?ReplyDelete
Ah, at last. A fun blogging award. And a story inspired by a movie. None of that "7 things about you" crap(as if a whole blog isn't enough to tell people about yourself). Great stuff Lady E!ReplyDelete
Love the new look by the way.
Hi Stephanie, last night I contracted STD. Thanks to you for starting it. xoxoReplyDelete
I am a new follower of your blog and I enjoyed this immensely. Thank you for a cool way to expand and express creativity. I had a lot of fun when I received this award. http://jenni-the-rambler.blogspot.com/2011/05/free-std-to-good-home.htmlReplyDelete
Jewel gave me one, thank you Jewel, and I can't stop scratching myself. A great idea, kinda like a 'seal of approval' for naughty blogs I'd like to follow :)ReplyDelete
Just a quick thank you for stopping by. You're a good friend. Hugs, feelin' a bit better too.ReplyDelete
It took me a while but I got there - although I'm kind of still laughing at my stupid movie - love ya xReplyDelete
Oh Emm Geee - 20 entries so far - looks like I'll be doing a giveaway! Yippi!!ReplyDelete
I'm doing my part to spread the....ReplyDelete
