Come Do the Dance of Joy With Me

Okay, cue music.
Ready the Vera Wang gown.

I just got my very first Blog Award!  Woooohoooooo!

First of all, thank you very much to Ashley from three for giving me this award.  To Shi, the love of my life, for without him, my posts wouldn't be as much fun and offensive.  To Yuna, my chunky ball of joy, for all the sleepless nights and exhaustion, as well as those irresistible quirks of yours, for without them this blog wouldn't be possible. My sister, for harassing all her nurse co-workers to check out my site.  My friends, whom I harass to check out my site, and last but not the least, my readers, both known and unknown to me, for sticking around to witness the birth of a new literary legend (forgive me for my delusions of grandeur, I'd just like to bask in this award winning moment).

Anyway, the award doesn't really look like that. It's just me and my unwavering fantasies of winning an Oscar someday.  By the way, do you know you can never sell that trophy, ever?  Even for a billion dollars?  That fucking sucks right?  Meryll Streep has those suckers all lined up in her trophy room and she can never even sell at least one of them to a billionaire with a weird propensity for the award giving body.

So going back, the blog award's supposed to be kinda like this:

Ummm.. one question.  What does it mean when they say you're a versatile blogger?  I really have no idea, but hey, an award is an award is an award.  I'll take it any day.

Now on to the price of this award:

Rules for winning this award

  • Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award. CHECK!
  • Share 7 things about yourself.  Coming up, but CHECK!
  • Pass the award along to 15 other bloggers who you recently discovered and think are fabulous. I have a problem with this, I'm kind of a D-Lister when it comes to the blogging world so I don't think I can come up with 15 but I'll try my best so, CHECK!
  • Contact the bloggers you chose and let them know about the award. WORKING ON IT!
7 Things about me:
1. I have a weird fascination for plastic containers. I own more than a hundred. They house all my most valued stuff from shoes, to jewelry, to home decor, to nipple covers. So if you go to my house and find that your gift to me last Christmas is inside one of these containers, it means I really really liked it.

2. I also have a freaky talent in memorizing phone numbers. Like, I still know my 2nd grade classmate's phone number until now. Crystal Villanueva, I can't find you on facebook but I can ASSURE you that your old number used to be 88-0449.

3. I don't eat anything with red sauce in it. Don't ask me why. I just don't. I think it's gross.
4. I got teeth braces 3 times. For the love of God, THREE TIMES!!!!!!!!!!

5. There are 2 great passions of my life I never pursued professionally due to the absence of confidence. First is writing and next is singing. I've been blogging since 2003 though, privately and publicly.  I have yet to come up with something I'd be proud to publish.

6. I always get reprimanded for being too loud, and that I swear too much. Pfffft.  
7.  It takes a lot for me to acknowledge that I'm wrong, and when I do, I come right out and admit it.  A lot of people might say that blogging about my inadequacies as a new mom is unbecoming of an ideal mother.  Here's the thing though, I think that there's nothing wrong with admitting that as a mom, no matter how hard I try to be perfect for my daughter, there will always be times when I fall weak, and when I do, I'd like to be able to share it with the world. Because before I become the superstar mom I hope to be, I gotta learn to laugh at the times I needed a superhero myself.
