The Memetastic Award!

EDIT: BTW, that's pronounced meem-tastic. I didn't want you pronouncing it wrong in your head. How embarrassing....


I've created an award!! You know those blogger awards that go around the blogosphere, I've gotten a few before. It's nice, to get these things, it means that somebody likes you and wants to spread your word. (That actually sounded kind of gross, "spread your word." Please don't spread my word, I like my word the way it should be, the way nature intended, in its original unspread state. But you know what I mean). So, I figured there aren't enough of these things around, at least, I haven't been given one for a few months, surely the blogosphere needs another one! (Is "blogosphere" the right word to be using here? It doesn't look right to me.)

So, I present to you all: The Memetastic Award! Named as such because these things are memes and its purpose is solely to celebrate the memeness of the award giving process. Let's rejoice in our memeocity by passing this award on to other people! It will be memelicious! Okay, mostly I just want to see what happens, and how far this thing goes. Wouldn't it just be so cool if an actual meme was created from this? Not very likely, but a girl can dream, right? At this point I'm just hoping it makes it past my own blog.

Here are the rules:

1. You must proudly display the absolutely disgusting graphic that I have created for these purposes (put it in your post, you don't have to put it in your sidebar, I think that would seriously be asking too much). It's so bad that not only did I use COMIC SANS, but there's even a little fucking jumping, celebrating kitten down there at the bottom. It's horrifying! But its presence in your award celebration is crucial to the memetastic process we're creating here. If you need a higher resolution version... I totally have one!!

2. You must list 5 things about yourself, and 4 of them must be bold-faced lies. Just make some shit up, we'll never know; one of them has to be true, though. Of course, nobody will ever know the difference, so we're just on the honor system here. I trust you. Except for the 4 that you lied about, you lying bastards! But don't go crazy trying to think of stuff, you'll see by the example I've set below that we're not really interested in quality here.

3. You must pass this award on to 5 bloggers that you either like or don't like or don't really have much of an opinion about. I don't care who you pick, and nobody needs to know why. I mean, you can give a reason if you want, but I don't really care.

4. If you fail to follow any of the above rules, I will fucking hunt your ass down and harass you incessantly until you either block me on Twitter or ban my IP address from visiting your blog. I don't know if you can actually do that last thing, but I will become so annoying to you that you will actually go out and hire an IT professional to train you on how to ban IP addresses just so that I'll leave you alone. I'm serious. I'm going to do these things. Starting with the 5 of you I'm about to pass this award on to.

**NEW** 5. This one isn't actually a rule, but once you do the above, please come back here and link up to the Memetastic Hop so that I can keep track of where this thing goes.

Okay, here I go!!! Are you ready? I'm excited.

5 things about myself, 1 of which is actually true:

1. I almost made it into the Guiness Book of World Records for "Most Rattlesnakes Sat in a Bathtub With" but I freaked out at 81 and ran out of the room. The biggest regret of my life.

2. I once shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

3. I have a weird compulsion about having clean hands. My hands must be clean at all times or I have trouble concentrating on whatever I'm doing.

4. I have a birthmark in the shape of a cherimoya on the back of my right calf.

5. I am a Level 9 Cleric on Dungeons and Dragons


And now I will pass this award on to the following lucky recipients: **

1. Big Daddy, from Big Daddy Autism

2. frazzledmomma, from Living With Logan

3. Dani G, from I'm Just That Way and That's Just Me

4. Jennie B, from Anybody Want a Peanut?

5.  tulpen, from Bad Words



** If you are not listed here, please don't be mad at me, it's not because I don't like you, because I do. I like all of you, even those of you I've never met and don't know. I've picked people that I figured would pass it on so you'll likely get it eventually if they all follow the fucking rules. Also I want to watch you all scramble over who gets to list Lynn first. ALSO, I listed tulpsters because she fucking hates things like this and now she has no choice but to go outside her bloggy comfort zone. I know where you live, you know, tulp. Or, at least, I could probably find you with Google maps if I knew your real name.

Jen said...

HA, you crack me up.

Big Daddy Autism said...

This is the 3rd award I recieved today. But this one is the best. Just don't tell that to the other awards.

My word was spread long ago. It's not so bad.

JennieB said...

Dibs on Lynn! And I don't care if someone else gives it to her, I'm doing it anyway.

tulpen said...

That's fucking hysterical!

I will ungraciously accept it at some point.

Jessica said...

Oh my God, I am laughing so hard at my computer right now. I've never been so glad to NOT get an award. Yay me, did you not pick me because you knew I would think that one or all of the decorations on your award were actually cute?? How can you not like jumping, happy kittens??

Lynn said...

Fuckyoufuckingbitchcocksuckingwhoretasticshitpissfucksterfrommotherfuckinghell. I'm kind of a sore loser.

Claire said...

What's a cherimoya? I don't feel like googling...

frazzledmomma said...

This is because I tagged you, and I only called STUART a snot rag and not you, isn't it? LOL Holy crap. Ok. It goes up tomorrow. How fun.. and FREAKIN funny!

Cheryl D. said...

I feel so unloved!

Great meme, even if I wasn't included!

bbsmum said...

The true one is #2, isn't it? Or have I been imagining you all wrong?

Cheryl said...

I voted but refuse to comment because, hello, where's my fucking award? I didn't even get one from the 2nd generation of recipients (read: Cheryl D. is an asswipe).

If I knew creating a badge (hi-res!) and starting a meme was so simple, I'd have done it days ago.

@jencull said...

The artwork is so bad it is actually good lol

Ashley said...

This is flippin' hysterical. I cannot look at the kitten without laughing out loud. I love it!

Dani G said...

You know that moment when you've just given birth and they place that sweet little baby in your arms for the first time? Yeah, this is even better than that.

This side of Typical said...

*practices her "i just lost look but can't cuss in front of the camera look"* Angelina Jolie's got nothin on me!

Awesome idea! I'm thinkin' up lies even now. Involving you. and a gopher. and Richard Nixon.

Varda said...

As you know, I was "got" today. And someday? Watch your back babe, you're not going to see it coming... and it will involve glitter.

MommyToTwoBoys said...

Wait, that's a kitten. I've been seeing this award all over today, just received one myself and kept thinking it was a bear.

I am gonna go with number 5 to be true because I would like to picture you secretly playing dungeons and dragons in between writing posts and doing people's financial forms.

Lady Estrogen said...

Found you through receiving this fucking ugly-ass award. Thanks for giving it life. lol.
PS. There is no way that's a kitten! hahaha.

Holy crap-I had the same exact problem..only my tub was filled with 20 cherimoya's-I couldn't take it as I have awful dendrophobia...

jazzygal said...

Hey there..nice to meet you! Through this mad award. That came between me and my sleep! Not only can I not tell lies but I can't spot them either!

Thanks for the fun though...
