Proof that I am not insane

Well, not completely.  But since some very sane, and actually brilliant, people do read my blog, I am going to take that as a sign of my not-completely-fucked-up-ness.

One of them, Jane, even sent me a badge.  I think that’s what you call it in the blogosphere, and it apparently is a big deal.  Yeah, faithless husband, take that! I am just happy that Jane (not her real name which is The Nicest Lady in the World) went through the trouble to say really nice things about me and shared with me this bloody awesome award.

I am not sure the correct way of displaying and acknowledging the badges one receives for one’s blog since this is my first (and may well be the last until I fabricate some for myself…).  So please forgive me if I broke any internet protocols.

And to be honest with you, and not to offend anybody, I think THIS here is the world’s best blog…

On 17 October 2009, the lovely Jane over at They Call Me Jane temporarily lost her mind AGAIN and shared with me another award that she just won.  It is displayed below as Exhibit 1 Exhibit 2:

Kreativ Blogger Award

If I don’t end up in the nut house, it is partly because the love and support from a stranger, who no longer feels like a stranger any more, and her name is Jane…

In order to accept this award, I had to come up with 7 random things about myself.  Since I am motivated by laziness on any given day (which is actually one of the 7 random things about me), I am just going to copy and paste the list here, so I don’t have to go write a long-winded “About Me” page that, at the end of the day, nobody cares other than stalkers and love-sick puppies.

  1. I am secretly obsessed with angels.  As in, I believe in them.  Or, I strongly wish they are/were real, even though I am not Christian. I envision them to be the angels in Wim Wender’s “Wings of Desire” (Der Himmel über Berlin). NOT the Nicolas Cage one. Oh, god, no.
  2. I am agnostic because I am too cowardly to make up my mind.  I want to have my cake and eat it too.
  3. I am a classic insecure overachiever.  Psychotic.  A bit bi-polar.  I guess I should have added these to my “About” page. Oh well.
  4. Laziness and fear of embarrassment are the driving forces of my life.
  5. I played Lizzie Borden in a play when I was in graduate school.  In fact, I played a few other homicidal characters, including Hamlet and one of the women in “Unfinished Women Cry in No Man’s Land While a Bird Dies in a Gilded Cage” who gets to wield an ICE PICK!  (I was totally typecast, I suspected…)
  6. Being on stage was the only times when I felt completely free.  I miss that feeling with a heartache, barely noticeable except during the night, when I am writing to nobody.  Like now.
  7. I also played Billy the Kid (adapted from Michael Ondaatje’s book) and I had the best lines in my acting career:

After shooting Gregory
this is what happened

I’d shot him well and careful
made it explode under his heart
so it wouldn’t last long
was about to walk away
when this chicken paddles out to him
and as he was falling hops on his neck
digs the beak into his throat
straightens legs and heaves
a red and blue vein out

Meanwhile he fell
and the chicken walked away

still tugging at the vein
till it was 12 yards long
as if it held that body like a kite
Gregory’s last words being

get away from me yer stupid chicken

I went there and it was too funny, unlike when it happened for real.

@ fernweher
:-) I did give it some thought. It will have to wait until I get fired from my full-time job or until the kids are out of the house.

Laziness is my most favorite thing in life. It’s got an immediate payoff and, depending on if you have anything besides yourself to take care of, has few negative aspects. Well, unless you count your ass getting bigger. Some people find that a plus though.

I think community theater is an excellent idea.

:-) Thanks! I am too old to play Mulan though. LOL. When the kids are older, I guess you never know… I may just be brave for once…

LOL. I am going to say the PUS is the pus in Octopus. Then don’t we all wish we had arms like octopus sometimes? 😉
