Gosh, Me?

I'd like to thank all of you who made it possible. All the people who suffered through living with me. All my friends in real life (yes, Dorothy, there is such a place) who still speak to me. It is to you, my faithful fans, I dedicate this award. I call it Barbie on a Half Shell. I need that gown.

Dr. Ziaus was telling me, just the other day, that for a woman who talks about writing, I never seem to get around to saying anything. Well, Fuck You, Too. I do too write. I'm a slave to it. It has it's way with me all the damn time. It's like telling me, after I pledge to commit to 100 days of sex, that I actually was expected to follow through with the threat. I can hear husbands and other men I've Known (if you know what I mean), sighing and saying, "She's so full of shit." And I ask you, is that nice?

But I digress. And don't I though! Often. I even come to your place and digressed plenty. I don't bother to listen, or watch, and sometimes I skip the post and get right to the seduction or rant, what ever you wish to call them. Kind of like Scarlet did to me, when she offered to ship it. I thought she was serious. WTF! Not only do I have to go get it, I have to learn how to link it back to it's charming originator, AND HER, but I get to pass it forward into the bloggy goodness. But I have to LINK it forward as well. Well, fuck me! I'm all for the passing it forward, but what the hell do I know of this thing you young people are so fond of, this word, "link" I know it when I see it. I know how to push it like a little button and up pops something else. Well aren't you all smart. Why can't I learn to do this link thing???? It seems like a dream I once had and I can remember the characters, but other than that it's a complete mystery.

Oh, and one other thing I'd like is the ability to strike through, as if I were using a pencil and said one thing, then decided against it, and drew a wavy line through it. Randal? Are you in the audience?

So I give you the same award, and you flutter past without a by yer leave - and here I was going to teach you the code for deleting (like striking a line through something.) So since you were awarded the Arte y Pico TWICE in one day, you have to link back to both of us AND do TEN bloggers to get it. :P so there.

Curses. I was hoping for one in each grubby hand. I know I'm a greedy little pig, but I've waited all my life to receive awards and now to think for just a moment I'd got two in one day. You're a real killjoy sometimes Diva.

I just emailed you instructions for how to make a link and strikethroughs. I hope it makes sense.

If it doesn't work, email me and I'll get on the phone and walk you through it.

First...before the word you wish to strike type this < then the word strike and then this > and then at the end of the word you wish to strike out add this < then the word strike and then >... This should strike out the word, depending on if the site you are on accepts the html in comments. If you are doing it within your own posts on Blogger it should work fine.

Hope that helps.

Drat! I just typed all that and just noticed that dcup beat me to it! :>/

Peace...

Ooops... Make sure you close the last strike like this minus the ... <.../strike...>.

At least I'm not asking what a damn swamp cooler is any more. I'm just saying.

What everyone else said.

I love helping out!

Utah Savage said...

Every other place I go, there you are, ahead of me. But today, when I really needed you, your the last one here. WTF! Thank god I have other friends.
