It’s a brand new month! When you think of June, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
1) Summer vacation starts
2) Father’s Day
Ha ha! Trick question. Of course it’s me, because Darla at She’s A Maineiac has chosen me as her Bloggah of the Month. But that other stuff is important, too.
I first met Darla (or Dorkla, as she prefers to be called) over at Good Greatsby’s caption contest. She was bringing home the trophy every, single week and I couldn’t stand it anymore. Words were exchanged. Tensions escalated and bloggers divided into two camps. We met in an alley and I don’t know who pulled a knife first, but what followed was a deadly ballet to the finish. It ended with Darla cradling my dead, cold body in her lap and singing (hitting high notes that caused dogs to howl) about how someday we would all be friends.
And someday came, and we were best friends, and I wasn’t dead anymore.
You no doubt already enjoy Darliciousness’ comedy stylings, unless you live a joyless life of soul-sucking misery. She did My Life Is A Scream, and What A Woman Really Wants. She is world renowned for vlogs that run the gamut of fascinating subjects including, but not limited to, actual baton twirling. She was the winner of the coveted Jacket writing competition on this very blog. She is also one of 32 blogs selected by WordPress as a Recommended Family Blog. Top 32 out of the 20 bazillion people who hang their blogging shingle out on WordPress. Major, I know.
After the initial euphoria at the honor, I got around to reading the fine print on the contract. This gig entails:
1) no money
2) writing a post for her while she sits around eating Doritos
3) said post to involve lots of work and soul-baring
4) cleaning the monkey cage for Mr. Skittles every day
5) no money
Despite this, I am truly honored to be featured on She’s a Maineiac. Head on over to Miss Darlinkidinkidoo’s and read Firsts and Lasts, which is all about…me. You’ve got all month to do so.
