Hey You, I Think You’re Fly

People get down. People get irrational thoughts when they are down. People either break, or get through it. This weekend I thought a lot about two people. Tracy Fulks and Wayne. They both have overcome some things that are pretty much equivalent to that asteroid Bruce Willis had to blow up. I will stay firm in my belief that this is why the world didn’t end. Owe you one, Bruce. Anyway, I just wanted to recognize that there are some strong people around here. I look up to those people. Thinking about their battles and triumphs stops me when I begin to sulk over the petty.

Wayne gave me two awards recently which really boosted me, but I haven’t been able to participate in keeping those going. I think I made a subconscious decision not to participate in those anymore simply because I have too much already planned to work on. I feel a bit bad about this.

I am still proud of my mistletoe placement.

So here is what I am going to do. I am giving Wayne and Tracey my own personal award. The Fly Blog Award (holiday style). I am also giving it to Jillian, because she is one of the most supportive bloggers ever, and I know she will appreciate it.  Basically, you can do whatever you want with the blabel. Use it as media in a post, put it on your sidebar, laugh at it and walk away, whatever. But, those are my own real long johns in the background, so treat them with care. Don’t worry, you don’t have to kiss anyone’s crotch either. Unless you want to…

You can pass it on or not. If you chose to pass it along, there are no award rules except that you can only pass it to one person that embodies your definition of fly. Give that person the spotlight they deserve. You don’t have to answer any questions, thank me personally on your blog, or link back to me.

I originally wanted to offer up the award to everyone I follow, but I follow something like 150 blogs. It wasn’t practical to name you all in a blog post, but I want you to know that every one of those blogs offers something slightly different but equally important to me. I may not read and comment as much as I used to, but I want you all to know I am still here reading every chance I get, even if I do not comment or like. I also have dreams about you, so that should make up for it.

Like the dream I had last night where Emily showed up and had superpowers. I know, my brain is a terrific place to be.

Currently, I am at my parents home for the holidays. I just spent half an hour trying to garner the proper materials to make some coffee. Then, I realized my mother only owns decaffeinated coffee. That does about as much good as taking a bath in old bath water. It’s fun here.

Now, here are the winning comments from this week. Finally:

Genericmessage on The End.

Be on the lookout for something extra special this New Years involving your two favorite gals. Me and La La, duh. I hope you all have peaceful holidays full of caffeinated coffee and appropriate use of mistletoe.

  1. I don’t drink coffee, but I can understand the need for it to have caffeine in it! It’s like the diet coke that’s also decaffeinated. What’s the point? You drink the stuff because it has sugar and caffeine in it – and I reckon that the stuff with sweetener in instead tastes vile.

    • You bring up an interesting point. I would drink coffee without the caffeine for the taste… much like I drink Diet Coke for the taste and not the caloric intake or the caffeine, but I usually only drink coffee in the morning. So, I suppose I associate coffee with waking up. The fact that I love the taste is a bonus.

      • The only reason I don’t drink coffee is because I find it quite bitter. I’d have to put so much sugar in it, I’d then end up having the jitters because of the sugar/caffeine combo. But I also understand the taste association. For me, breakfast is cereal, or marmalade on bread, so having ham on Christmas Day here was a bit weird!

        • I agree with you on the taste. The sugar and caffeine doesn’t make me too jittery, so I use plenty. I like to say I take my sugar with a few scoops of coffee.

          • It’s like some of the Sisters and their dinner – I’m tempted to ask “would you like some food with your salt?” It’s probably the salt that’s kept them going over the years: one of them is over 90 and another is not too far off 90!

  2. Becca – I just. Speechless! You! Girl. Dude! Hugs! Love!

    You’ve reduced me to monosyllabic, one world sentences! (I know, not technically grammatically possible. But IT HAPPENED!)

  3. The best holiday wishes to you. :)

  4. Only DECAF!? Good luck with Christmas without caffeine! Just take deep breaths and think about french fries. You will be okay!

  5. Hahaha I loved David’s comments best. Cracked me up :P

  6. Will Youtube Tuesday be on this Tuesday even though it’s Christmas?

    • HELL YES. Well half of the day. The later portion I will be in travel mode. I hear it is not safe to text and drive, so I think WordPress and YouTube is out of the question.

  7. So sorry to hear about the coffee situation. It’s like when I got Thailand and all they have is 3 in 1 instant–Thought I was going to die until I bribbed people in the US to send me good coffee.
    Happy holidays!!!

  8. Becca, you are awesome, and your award fucking rocks. I’m just too tired to be clever, Christmas is sucking me dry.
    Sincere thanks for giving a shit.
    Tracy

  9. Well ain’t this just awesome. You are right though everyone needs a pick me up from time to time. I’d also like to agree with you that Jillian is way awesome and very supportive. My two cents.

  10. That is one fly blabel. I like the way the purple long johns offset the cat’s eye colour and fade into the mistletoe. What? Wait? What? Am I the only one that is seeing this? I got the special edition blabel. I’m sure of it.

  11. Can’t wait for the Bec and LaLa double header. It will prowl the town at night, scaring young children with its Chris de Voss feet.

  12. Becca, you’re so thoughtful! Nice post and tribute to Wayne and Tracy. I hope you have a warm and cozy Christmas and get a chance to hang around in your long johns! I hope you find some real coffee, too!

  13. Love the blabel. Purple happens to be my favorite color. Just wondering where you purchase such fashion forward long johns? I don’t even think they sell long johns in California.

  14. Becca, you’re fly!! I agree people get down, I’ve been dealing with an emotional tailspin recently and I gotta say that you bloggers are all awesome!!
    Have a great Christmas, even if it is with decaffeinated coffee.

  15. You just keep moving closer to that “Most Generous Blogger Performance of the year by a female Wearing Men’s Long Johns”, don’t you? Good for you!
    Try not to tear all that beautiful hair out over the holidays, cutie…

  16. Decaffeinated coffee? What is wrong with your mom? Decaf coffee just a cup of dirty, unsatisfying water. Oh, Mrs. Cort…

  17. Becca,
    Thank you so much, your posts always make smile. I thank you for this wonderful award (forgive if I don’t do the crotch sniffing thing, I’m only just getting over the breast milk thing and adult bed wetting episode). As I am only one of three people to receive this award I am going to keep all to myself, if that’s ok.
    Seriously, thank so much for the award and all your support, my Christmas is looking good and my kids have the best present I can give the, ME.
    Thank you again,
    Wayne

  18. If I win for a comment on this post, will I get double prizes?
