I Got Another Award

On Monday I did a post about how I had received two awards over the weekend and also how I had been pimped out. Well on Monday after I had posted my award post, I received another award from Semi True Storyteller over at Can U Relate. Her blog is awesome so you need to go check it out. She writes about everything and anything that comes to her mind, so please go read her blog.

The name of the award is the “Life Is Good” award which is cool. I do find it ironic that my life can be a complete utter clusterfuck at times, which makes this award a little funny. I don’t write about all the messed up things that go on in my life (only the funny ones) so I guess this is karma saying my life really is good.

So this award comes with some rules. I have to thank the giver of the award (done above), I have to pass the award on (done below here), and answer the 10 questions (below). So I have fulfilled the award rules.

I chose to pass this award onto the following people:

Miss Nikki over at My Cyber House Rules because her life truly is good. She is living on a recently purchased boat and her blog is awesome. Go and read stuff as she is funny.

Powdered Toast Man over at Just The Cheese because he bribed asked me for an award so I am giving him one. His blog is very funny and always keeps me entertained, and also he has trivia as well. Go and check him out for yourself.

And last but not least Midwestern Momma Holly over at Are You Serious. Her blog is hilarious and good so you should go check it out.

As for the required questions, here you go.

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now? Yes I blog anonymously and I am happy with it. A few people who actually know me in real life know about and read my blog and I don’t mind. But some of the stuff I write about could bring some serious shitstorms down on me/family/friends so I kept it anonymously. Yes that means I have some seriously offensive shit coming soon.

2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side. Hmm, every day I open my mouth at work.

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror? I see myself as a fat guy who is ugly and could lose some weight. But I balance it out when I think that by saying I am a good parent and my kids love me, haven’t flunked out of school, and haven’t turned into serial killers yet. Although they are cereal killers and can knock off a box of cheerios faster than a lake of catfish can.

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink? Mountain Dew is my favorite, and I can down a can of it like nothing at all in no time flat.

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do? Well as I rarely get time at all for me, I tend to either watch some sports, read, or write stuff for my blog. But “me” time is more rare than a non corrupt non lying politician.

6. Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life? There are a lot of things I would like to accomplish. Keeping both of my kids from having kids before marriage, keeping my daughter off of a stripper pole (relax Kage I am kidding), getting both of my kids through college, and a ton of other stuff.

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching? I was actually the shy class clown. No one ever got my humor or much less appreciated it. Now all of my former classmates find my shit funny on Facebook. Which is ironic because my sense of humor has not changed in 35 years.

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see? Hmm I would have to say two events come to my mind. One is when my kids were born and the other is the day I moved out of my ex-wifes rent house.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events? Well lets just say I am sharing with you with every post. It is like putting a 1000 piece puzzle together and only doing 3 pieces per week.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why? I would choose to sit down and read a book because I am always on the phone with people. My phone never stops ringing between my brother and my kids.


  1. Congratulations on a 3rd award! And btw, I'm looking forward to your "seriously offensive" shit coming our way. ;)

  2. congrats! and excellent reponses!

  3. I love your answers Oilfield. That's pretty much why I blog anonymously also, because no one and nothing is immune from being a subject on my blog and that would make a lot of people uncomfortable/angry.

    As for your sense of humor, if it hasn't changed then clearly your classmates just needed to mature more to appreciate it.

  4. Ditto Semi True Torystellar....I love your blog.

  5. @ Sam, thank you. And just keep reading. I have some good stuff planned for the future.

    @ Bruce, thank you.

    @ Semi, thank you. I agree those people needed to mature.

  6. Wow, 3 awards, you're doing great. :D

  7. @ Janie, thank you.

    @ Blah, I guess I am doing great. Some body out there enjoys my humor.

  8. Aaaawww thanks Sammy Boy! (hee hee) I really liked reading your q's and a's. It's always nice to get to know your fave bloggers this way, could you send it to some of mine? (Get it? I just turned a compliment into a slap in your face rude statement!) No really, you TOTALLY deserve an award (so do I goddammit!) What I love about reading your blog is (always seeing mine listed on the right) how you've progressed as a writer and a story teller.

    I noticed last night you were at 98 followers (don't you just fuckin hate it when that 100 just doesn't happen?) We need to get you beyond that point, just so you can finally rest...

    Thanks for sharing the love with me!

    惄 my cyber house rules

  9. @ Nikki, thank you. Not sure where the Sammy Boy came from (I am slow today). Maybe I will do a series on "getting to know the Trash".

    Thanks for the comment about progressing as a story teller. I suck at grammar, spelling, and just the whole English language so you saying I am getting better means a lot.

    And yes I am at 98, I just need 2 more people and I will post another great picture of myself (this time it will be the stripper picture).

    And you are welcome for the sharing of the love.

  10. Congrats on another award! I, too, would appreciate not becoming a grandparent before my kids are married. But seriously, I'd appreciate it if they just wait until they move out of my house.

  11. when you win a grammy, i expect a shout out.

    oh! and please hook me up with henry rollins and trent reznor.

  12. All good stuff to know!!

    Congratulations on the awards -- gonna check out your people.


  13. @ Hyde, I can agree with you on that.

    @ Bird Shit, I would not say rock star just yet. Wait till you can see me on Comedy Central doing stand up, then you can call me a rock star.

    @ Kage, do they give wanna-be stand up comedians a grammy? If so I will hook you up if I ever get one.

    @ Pearl, yes maam. Thank you. And yes you should check them out.

  14. Yay for seriously offensive shit!! And of course, congrats on the award buddy!

  15. Congratulations! I love your answers.

    I blog semi-anonymously, but secretly want famosity with a secret identity.

    When I talk about family or friends I use nicknames. Some know who they are. Some find out and unfriend me on FB (ex-BFs can be a tad sensitive when you write out the nasty shit they pulled in the relationship. heh.).

  16. Thanks you hot sexy beast!! Is it irony that one the day you give me an award and call me hilarious, Im doing a very rare serious post? Maybe we should ask Alanis.

  17. Major props on the 3rd award! Definitely want to see you cross the 100 reader mark so that we can all see the stripper photo ; )


  18. Are you saying you haven't started with the seriously offensive sh*t? I can't wait. You deserve all the awards you can get, especially for raising cereal killers. (That was my favorite line in this post).

  19. @ Becca, thank you.

    @ Heather, thank you.

    @ Kernut, thank you. I am dream for the same thing. And I also do the same thing with nick names.

    @ Holly, yes that is ironic. Hmm.... Maybe I have some kind of 6th sense to me.

    @ Empress, thank you. And I am hoping it happens soon, that picture is burning a hole in my laptop.

    @ Sharaf, thank you.

    @ Robyn, yes I haven't even started yet. Don't worry though, you will see it. I can't show all my cards at one time. And I am glad you say that little line, I was curious to know if someone would say something about that.

  20. Grats on the award! Much deserved, as always :)


  21. "Sammy Boy" tell me you don't get this? Really? Make Daddy a Sammich doesn't know what a sammy is or why I'm calling him Sammy Boy? Maybe I should just stick to numbers from now on...

  22. @ Hed, thank you.

    @ Nikki, this morning before I had 5 pots of coffee I did not get it.

    Now that I am awake, I get it. Told ya I was slow in the morning time.

  23. I am fascinated with the different ways the recipients of this award have answered the 10 questions.

    Your answers are quite interesting, intriguing and thought provoking. It reads honest and with a depth that may be helped along because it is anonymous. All the more real!

    Your answer for question number nine is truly brilliant – when do we ever really know anyone in absolute completeness.

    I will borrowing your answer now and then as sometimes I am stumped when trying to explain to someone why getting to know me isn’t an easy task. You’ve provided me with a great explanation. I hope you won’t mind sharing it!

    And, finally, CONGRATS on the award! You are very deserving of all the recognition and accolades!


  24. There is ANOTHER award for you over at my blog. Stop by and check it out!


  25. I didn't know catfish like cheerios, I will have to try that as bait next time I go fishing.

    So do I deserve this award or are you just giving it to me because I asked?

  26. Yay for the awards. Congrats. I need to do a reply for this award myself so do you mind if I steal your answers? Very well deserved and great blogs you passed it on to

  27. @ Pearson, thank you for the kind words. I am glad you liked my answers. And the one from number 9 took me a long time to answer. And the only one that came to my mind was doing a puzzle because they always take a long time to do.

    @ Empress, thank you for the award.

    @ Toastman, yes catfish like cheerios. I will have to blog about that now.

    @ Mynx, thank you.

  28. That puzzle analogy is perfect! So glad you blog. I enjoy reading your stuff. I would never have taken you for a fat ugly guy. I bet you aren't!

  29. I'm adding 'clusterfuck' to my repertoire. See how informative your blog is...no wonder you win awards.

  30. @ Kelley, thank you. I thought it was good as well. And yes I am over weight. And a tad ugly. Think Shrek except I am not green.

    @ Tracey, clusterfuck is such a great word. And thank you.
