In Which Iwillfuckingtearyouapart Doesn't

She visited. She reviewed. She liked my Cher doll. It was either Love Bites, Calamity, Professor Booty, or Queen Mutha from Ask and Ye Shall Receive who reviewed my blog.

Here’s what she had to say:

--Her photo of the beer bottles beats to death the endless parade of adorable kiddie photos that we typically see on mommy blogs.

Thanks, I do so love my beer bottles (full). But I’m not sure this is a mommy blog. I know I wouldn’t want my mommy to read it.

--I laughed my well-padded butt off at her bit about leaving food in the car.

Thanks again. But it wasn’t a ‘bit.’ It was and IS a fact of my freakin’ life.

--Her side bar has ads, which I hate. She also has a lot of useless widgets that really could go, but they didn't bother me - much. That's because my eye caught the sweet jewelry that she makes. My review could have been bought for the little blue bracelet that she crafted.

Sorry, but I love my ads. Currently they include: Custom Beer Labels, Beer Shirts, Beer Glasses and John Cusack Ringtones. Once when I blogged about former Governor’s Spitzer’s mistress, there was an ad to meet ‘real cheating housewives.’ I mean, the ads are kind of an abridged version of my life.

As for that little blue bracelet? Thank you so much. It’s great to get a review and make a sale in one transaction. You see, folks, that bracelet is the only thing I have ever sold at my Etsy shop. Thing is … I would have given it to you, fellow Cher Doll Enthusiast—no not as a bribe for a review, but to be my new best friend. These reviewers drink and smoke and like sex and soccer games (not combined). And I need more friends like that.

And speaking of friends who like sex and soccer (think Beckham), special thanks to Jen at Daily Mish Mash for giving me my first award. It is an award that Memoirs of a Mommy made up to honor the donor who gave her son a heart.

Now I need to present it to three others—oh the pressure. OK. Well here goes:

My Writer-Turned-Beader-Turned-Blogger Buddy Kris at Life Needs a Primer because she's one funny gal and needs to be encouraged to blog more often.

Tracy at Tiny Mantras because she does things to make the rest of us look bad (like cutting her long hair and donating to wigs for cancer patients).

Brent at The Ominous Comma to cheer him up for the whole Dr. Toboggans fiasco. Plus those Humor Blogger guys really need more precious little heart awards on their sites. Don't you agree?

Oh lord - made me submit my blog and now I'm scared!

Sounds like you got a great review - congrats!

Congrats on not being torn apart! I just went over to the site. Yikes. I'm too scared to submit my blog for any sort of review.

Ok, about Mark Ruffalo. I go back and forth on him. I think I need to watch more of his movies to make a decision. Which do you recommend. I own (and love) 13 Going on 30.

WOW...I have no words.

I think you and your blog rock, but you already knew that! Have a better Monday sweetie!

I like that you defend your ads. Sometimes the best part of my blog are the weirdo Google Adsense "matches."

I got torn apart a few weeks ago. Didn't hurt a bit.

Congrats on the review and the awards!

I've always thought about doing this. Your experience sounds like it was painless!

(love your blog header!)

I like emptying my beer bottles...right into my belly. I hate the term "Mom blogger" for bloggers like us. I don't post cutesy pictures of my kids, and I only tell the horrific stories. Today, for instance, I posted about a zit.

i am not even sure i like kids.

i'm gonna submit my blog, get my ass kicked and i am gonna like it.

ksd said...

Thanks for the award! I will display it proudly. You are an inspiration to blog more often AND drink more beer!

TZT said...

Hey... thanks for the award! I've never gotten one of those before. I'll have to figure

Sorry I didn't get a chance to swing by yesterday to say so - been recovering from the weekend festival, had two little deadlines and been giving my draft lipo. Yeesh! I feel really hung over,for a non-drinking person.

Dan's also in classes an intense amount until mid-July, so I've been trying to accomplish things without help with child care. Yay!

Hope all is well with you.

Yikes! Pigeon holed as a Mommy Blog. Harsh!!! Well if it's any consolation, I think you have a great thing going here.

Sully Sullivan said...

Nice, it's always good to get a glowing review. Congrats.

I've never had my blog reviewed. God knows what they'd say.

I have you marked as a favorite on my Etsy, but I'm out of spendable US dollars right now. Once I get a job here, if you want to negotiate a payment in euros somehow....
