The Fabulous One...

Many thanks to The Nice One at Even the Nice Ones for bestowing this fabulous award on me.

She and I both have sexy blog cartoon selves so we are real tight. I don't know about her in real life, but my waist is indeed that tiny and my boobs are indeed that perky.
What I have to do is this:

1. You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs in a post.
2. You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions in the post.
3. You must copy and paste the rules and the instructions below in the post.

Instructions: On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them. When you post your five winners, make sure you link them as well.

The hard part of this for me is choosing only my fabulous addictions, not my run of the mill (read: sometimes illegal and always illicit) -not so fabulous here goes:

5. addicted to soap operas since I was 11. Something about Luke Spencer and Laura Weber and those discoteque lights and Herb Alpert's "Rise" got under my craw back then. Hell, - it's over 30 years ago, and while I don't actually watch them any more ...I still check for updates on my ABC addictions. You know your old when your favorite character's children are the new 'it' couple.

4. My acrylic nails....oh yeah - I got me some loverly french manicure and have for oh so many years. I don't even know what my real nails look like. Even in this economy - I'd give up lunch (yeah, that's it - lunch !) everyday for my fingernails. Too bad my kids will go hungry without their packed lunchboxes, but my nails still look fabulous.

3. Salt and Grease...sure I love chocolate, but my first and always preferred snack addiction is chips, chips and chips. Something about the combo of lightly salted-hydrogenatedly-oiled potato or corn products really makes me happy. Add to that a coating of 'processed cheese food' and I am all squealy with joy. (side note: just how many cheetos do you eat before you lick your fingers, anyway?)

2. Reality TV...maybe because there is such a lack of original programming these days, but I can't wait for AmericanIdolSoYouThinkYouCan DanceProjectRunwayTopChef to come on each week. Oh, and I'd like to thank my DVR for making it all possible.

...and my number one Fabulous Addiction is - as if you didn't already know:

1. Blogging. I have B.O.C.D. - Blog Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I need to start a support group. I'll call it On and On Anon. Coffee and chips will be served at the meetings. And we offer free WiFi. Any takers?

Now for the hard part: I have to select 5 Fabulous cyber friends to share this with.

Aunt Becky at Mommy Wants Vodka because she has the most fabulous new look for her site. It's so 'afterschool special' in an "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret" kind of way. I read her each day , so maybe if I kiss her bloggy butt a little here - she'll finally add me to her blog roll.

Happy Hour Sue at Happy Meals and Happy Hour because she has the most fabulous sense of humor and always makes me laugh.

Tiffany and Heather of the Secret's In The Sauce. The fabulous site that brings about 300 bloggers together -each and every day.

Trooper Thorn of Dogs and Jeans. Trooper is hysterical. His fabulous coverage of newsworthy events like the Olympics and the Election actually made me snort whatever beverage I was consuming out of my nostrils (and let me tell you, wine stings when it comes out of your nostrils). I don't think Trooper would mind the girly picture on his blog. Would you, Trooper?

and Romi, at It is What it Is because she hasn't been around for a while and I want to make sure she is still as fabulous as ever.

So there you have it.

Fabulous is as fabulous does.

Yesterday those SITS gals and I toured 4 wineries. And we wished you were with us. With your tiny waist and perky boobs.

I tried to go home sick from school the day Luke and Laura got married on GH, but my mom, apparently clued in by the cultural tidal wave that was GH at the time, combined with the fact that I was religious about that show, was onto me and wouldn't let me come home! I didn't get to see the wedding until they reran it as part of some 20th anniversary thing. It just didn't feel the same!

Sue Wilkey said...

Thank you so much!!!!!!

I so remember the Luke & Laura thing- how taboo that he had raped her then she fell in love with him. Creepy, but addictive.

Right now my nails are stubs cuz I pulled all my beautiful acrylics off. Salon tomorrow....

Thanks again!

The Nice One said...

Tiffany said...

Of course we read the comments! And, look at your awesome shout out... this is so cool!

The Blonde Duck said...

Love the five things. I've never had fake nails--I can't even keep my real ones from ripping and tearing. And hooray to the SITS girls! What a wonderful idea!

Answer - I eat a LOT of them before I lick my fingers cause I like that build up of cheese that you have to scrape off with your teeth.

did I just say that?

SHould i post this annonymously?

I used to watch "As the World Turns." And actually turned it on the other day. Same people. Same story lines. Plus their children...

And I will happily eat a bag of doritos over a snickers bar any day...

Just read as I finished off my baggie of Cheetos.

Baked Cheetos mind you. I'm going all healthful and stuff.

I have successfully convinced myself that there is no difference and I don't need the fried ones.

Mama Dawg said...

Trooper totally deserves it. Congrats on the win!

Rhea said...

I love that you gave this award to Trooper too. lol

I wish I had beautiful nails. I would definitely splurge if I could. I'm also addicted to blogging, reality shows and greasy, salty food over chocolate...although I don't turn down chocolate, of course.

I have a sexy cartoon blog gal on my page too. :o) I covet her skinny bod.

Dennis and Leslie said...

Congrats on your award! Found you while blog-hopping, great blog!

Aunt Becky said...

Hehehe. I laugh because I was TOTALLY on purpose not adding you to my blogroll! Because I'm wicked AND EVIL! Bwahahahaha!

And thank you, my friend, for the lovely award. It's gorgeous, and if I was smart enough to be able to put it on my blog, I would.
