Taking Care Of Business...

Maraiya commented yesterday only to ask if I have thrown up yet. Sorry to disappoint all you vomit voyeurs out there, but it seems Brian's puking episode on the 4th stemmed from simple overconsumption of holiday goodies. Nothing contagious, thank goodness.

I don't think I'll be eating cherry pie any time soon, however. Yuck.

Oh, and today Holly, over at June Cleaver Nirvana, gave me an award for making vomit "the new black." Boy, I wish I had thought of that line. I don't really understand the award itself - it's called Arte y Pico, which I think is some sort of salsa. I can't wait to try it.

It seems that there is yet another stumbling block to my being anointed the Imperfect Blogger of the Month. Here I was keeping an eye on Sue , while all the while MadMad has pulled even with me in the voting; and she hasn't been abasing herself by begging her readers for votes, even. I had assumed that her post, although laugh-inducing (as is everything she writes), was way too knitting-oriented to tickle the average non-knitting parent's funny bone. Apparently, I was wrong.

Hey! Maybe it was you all who voted for her. Now I don't know whether to urge the stragglers to get on over there and vote (every day until the 11th!) or not.

Hoist by my own petard, I am...

  1. Vomit, the new black? My goodness THAT IS a good line. I wish I had thought of it. I must check this woman out, she obviously has a way with words.

    Congrats on the new award and let me know who it is on corn chips.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! MTM has been a favorite show of mine for a long time. Its never on anymore though...at least not that I know of!
    Congrats on the "salsa" award...hahaha!

  3. Congrats on your accolades, you Bloggy Goddess, you!

  4. Vomit is the new black? Who knew? Hilarious.

    Wish I'd thought of it.

  5. Welcome to the SITStahood!!

  6. Yeah vomiting is becoming incredibly popular again. I just can't get enough of it. Every time I walk past a hobo, I just go up and take a big healthy whiff. It's an addiction really.

    Oh for crying out loud you're winning by a land slide..I voted anway which was easy since #1 you told me too and #2 I didn't know the other blogs..

    What was I voting on again?

    Vomit..comit...doggonnit..?? I don't know why I just typed that

  8. Yesterday morning MadMad and I were both tied at 41 percent of the votes. Maybe there were only 10 votes total - I don't know. But, really, I wasn't crying wolf!

  9. I have NO idea what this post is all about. I think I'm out of the loop. That's okay though, I love living in my own bubble.

    Okay, I'll go follow the links and figure it out. Soon.

  10. Now I'm going to have to look up petard.

    But I've never questioned your right to hoist by your own whatever it is.

  11. I thought vomit was the old food.

  12. Wow. Your begging is working. I went over and voted, and you were well in the lead. WOOHOO!

  13. Oh, and I voted for you not Sue. Whoever whined first wins!

  14. Okay, wait, on second thought I think I posted at Mad Mad's place and then posted the vomit comment here? I don't know. I'm over 30; all my brains have fallen out.

    But really, I commented on kids, vomit and I have a mouse photo. I so belong at your house.
