A Super PlainOleShoutOut to Deb and Joe

I'm a big slacker. I readily admit that. I'd apologize, but that's more effort than I'm really willing to put forth.

A few weeks back, Joe from Crotchety Old Man Yells at Cars was kind enough to bestow upon me this beautiful award. I didn't forget his kindness; I'm just... incredibly lazy. I hope Joe forgives my slackery ways. Check out his site. He may be crotchety, but he's hilarious and one of my favorite bloggers.

Then, as if I don't possess enough slackerific tendancies, Deb from Debbie Does Drivel goes and gives me another award. Deb is great, and I love her site, but her award came with rules and regualtions and stipulations and all those sorts of things (Deb, that just makes me like Joe better). I guess I'll play by the rules and list 6 things that make me happy. I'll have do the second part (passing the award on to 6 other deserving folks) later.

6. Monkeys in people clothes.

5. Monkeys in hats and/or diapers.

4. That no matter how hard they try, the Cubs can't lose today.

3. This Saturday no one is making me go pick pumpkins, pick apples, wander through haunted corn mazes, trek through the zoo, or any sort of extended family activities where the activity takes the back seat to my mom and sister yelling at me. I actually have an entire day where no one will bug me, and I can just relax on the couch doing what I do best - not a damn thing.

2. PlainOleTike (that's the rug rat)

1. I suppose this as good a way to announce this as any, there's another PlainOleTike on the way. Heretofore this munchkin will be referred to as PlainOleTike 2: Fetus Boogaloo.

Thanks Joe and Deb.

I'll be back tomorrow with a regular post: a four part Halloween saga that will tell you all the greatest ghost story of all time.

On the baby I mean.

The awards too but the baby first. ;o)

Congrats, Mike!

My apologies for the award with 'rules'. I'm going to follow Joe's cue and start ditching the rules and making up my own rules for those things, which will be No Rules! Awards with stipulations sort of takes all the glory out of winning.

That aside, PlainOleMike is well deserving of the Kreativ Award.

Congrats on the new addition in progress!
