Thank You Cat Lady ...

The other night I decided to take a break from work and football to post a funny from my lil brother and to read a few of my favorite blogs.

And what to my wandering eyes should appear...a chance for me to earn a bloggin' award ...


Thanks to my favorite (because she has no cats) Cat Lady for paying it forward to me with the most sought after bloggin' award of all times - the "Premiere Meme Award!"
Larew, you are the best, what more can I say?


Oh yeah, like I was sayin', I gotta bloggin' work for it...


If I understand it right, before I can claim the award, I need to reveal 7 of my innermost secrets and then pass the torch to 7 of my favorite bloggers who have secrets of their own...


I hope I got that right...


But before I start revealing, let me say a few words of thanks to Cat Lady Larew for nominating me for this honor. You have helped make me the blogger I am with your frequent visits and empathetic comments. All of that after keeping me entertained with tips on
How to Become a Cat Lady. I promise to be a student now that I have given up my cat.

I would also like to thank my three kids, my two brothers, my two parents, my friends, my neighbors, my ex-neighbors, my co-workers, my ex-coworkers, my kids friends, my ex, my ex in-laws, the rebel moms, the bingo goers and workers, the football parents and staff, the drinkers, the smokers, the tokers, the online scammers, the guys in my past that I have dated and those who would not date me, my bay buddy, toledodawn, Phat Phil, bad american, lc, richyB, sandra lee..

You get the picture...if you are a part of my bloggin life, thank you very much...
But who the hell is sandra lee? you ask - just wait she'll bloggin show up sooner or later...

Now for the revealing....


  1. I was very very shy in grade school and high school; in fact, I was one of the least popular kids in school; most likely to be canonized for living the life of an outcast; but look at me now...I am the Mom of a partying bachelor entrepreneur, a beauty queen of a tri-state beer pong champion, and a co-captain of a high school football team...who'd a thought?
  2. My BS is in physics - really - which makes me related to Al Einstein - sorta - which is where I get my charming personality and handsome good looks...and frequent bad hair days...
  3. Tell me I have to do something and I will do my best to not do it - no matter how much I really want to. It's the Catholic school/family upbringing. Who says I have to go to Church? And confession to a priest??? I'll see you in hell first!!! And there is nothing better than a Delmonico Steak, medium rare, smothered in mushrooms and onions on a Friday in Lent.
  4. The thing I find most attractive in guys is their smile; if you have a smile that shows in your eyes, a good sense of humor, and a giving heart, I am yours..if you'll have me - and you're available...
  5. Cheaters and liars are about the lowest of the low on my list of bad guys (and gals). If I catch you cheating on a SO or spouse, I have little sympathy for you. And if I catch you in a lie...well, just know I will prolly question every frickin' word outta your mouth after that ...
  6. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a nun. But at one time in my young life I did dream of becoming one...sort of wanted to martyr myself for the love of God - make my parents proud...
  7. When I grow up, I want to be a lottery winner...actually, I just want to be able to retire someday with enough financial security to not have to work for someone else, to travel a little, and to help my kids on the path to their dreams...

And now the fun part...I get to tag 7 of my favorite bloggers...

CatLadyLarew, know that I would be tagging you if you hadn't tagged me first. Are tagbacks allowed?

Winky Twinky, I'm Just saying you had to know this was coming...You are my first and favorite blogging buddy...well, first after lc, but we will not go there, because he is not there anymore...teach him to mess with us. I'll let you readers try to find that story amongst our bloggin posts...

Next, I want to send you over to
Pa Rock's Ramble...Rock is definitely on my list of of top ramblers. And not just because he may owe me $100 at the end of the year if I slither ahead in his infamous Dead Pool. Rock rambles, among other persona, as a social observer, citizen journalist, nature enabler, poetry appreciator, and (drum roll for my personal favorite), proud grampa. Check him out.

Next you should visit Flubtastic Doofalo. I enjoy Flubtastic's blog so much because he (or at least his blog persona) kinda reminds me of me - only I am a girl and he is a guy and he is funny and I try to be and... well there may be a few more slight differences, but you know what I mean...

And then head on over to see mooooooog35, aka midgetmanofsteel, to get your daily dose of laugh-out-loud
Mental Poo. Enough said...

Then, let's have some
Fun With Jesus because...well, it's back to that Catholic upbringing I keep trying to get away from. Thanks for your help, JC:)

And one of my newer favorites...
Dr. Grumpy..take two bullets and cap him in the morning...he'll feel much better.

And this one - ya gotta love - if for nothing else, than the what????
Ok, this sucks...I wanted to tell you about Wind in Your Vagina but apparently it is now only open to invited readers. But I am a follower, invite me in you bastard. I'm losing my Wind in Your Vagina - oh noooooo...

Well that leaves room for another hats off...to the
Open Letters Blog. I have been writing a few open letters of my own lately and will be sharing them with you soon - once I get past this busy few weeks at Peyton PHlace and football mommying - which has lead to some of the aforementioned open letters...

UH OH...I just found this (why I'm just NOW finding it, I have no excuse)... Great, now I have an assignment to do...thanks a lot!!

Actually, I'm glad to have an opportunity to get this magnificent award...woo hoo!! Okay, I'm off... to work... then I'll be blogging about my innermost darkest secrets later...

Phillipia said...

I'll tell you why you just found it - cuz I actually just posted it a few hours ago - I started writing it on the 11th, but then got busy with life and finished it late last night/early this morning...and the post time defaults to when I started writing unless I schedule the post time....have fun:)

Winky Twinky said...

Whew...Well, that explains it. I didn't THINK I was losing it -- at least not yet anyway...

Flubtastic Doofalo said...

Well, I'm flattered to find out I'm one of your favorite bloggers. But I have to reveal secrets about myself? And then tag seven more bloggers? Dude!

Phillipia said...

Only if you want the award, Flubtastic...:)

Pa Rock's Ramble said...

I'm thrilled to have made your list of favorite bloggers! I have plenty of dark secrets - and will try to choose some of the juicier ones to share. I'll get my response up in a couple of days.

Okay, so what kind of a noob am I? Like Twinky, I also just found this.... guess it takes awhile longer for the mail to arrive over here in New York.

Anyway, thank you for your kind words and the insights into your warped personality. As I read the things you've written, it wounds eerily familiar... and except for the Physics thing and the Catholic thing, I'd think we were separated at birth.

And thanks for the tagback mention... I'm looking forward to checking out the bloggers you mentioned who aren't already on my hit list... no, not THAT kind of hit list...

moooooog35 said...

You tagged me AND 6 other bloggers?

See that? It's shit like that why this syphilis sore is so stubborn.

Perhaps I've said too much.

I did this 7 facts thing way back about two years ago...but I WILL mention it tomorrow and maybe..just maybe...write 7 more at some point.

But I don't re-tag.

Seriously...these sores are a bitch.

Phillipia said...

Hey moog, I just tagged you as one of my 7 favorites - quit griping...you do not have to do anything about it that you do not want to - you are not going to hurt my feelings none...you are still one of my favorites:)

Philbabe- Carmen Miranda meets the flying Nun... Best icon I've seen in a long time! Neat people abound, but hard to find sometimes..
