In The Merry Month Of June

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
3)      Weddings
4)      Graduations
5)      Peg-o-Leg

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.

  2. If only we could meet up in that alley again, Miss Pegolego and fight another caption battle. Mr. Skittles is MIA, poor lil’ guy. This time around I promise I serenade your lifeless body with a personal favorite: “I am in the eye in the sky….lookin atchooooooo….I can read your mind…..”

    Oh and (crunching noisily) thanks a million for (gulping) doing this for me, I realize you’re busy with minor things like work and all (more crunching, more wiping away of Dorito dust) so I totes ‘preciate it, dude.

      I’m giving you bonus points for using “Eye in the Sky” as your serenade. Alan Parsons Project just doesn’t get enough props anymore.

      Still no sign of Mr. Skittles? That’s tragic.
      Serenading with Eye In The Sky is good, but it might not fit in with the West Side Story vibe I got going with this whole metaphor (or is it a simile? I get those confused.)

      Thanks for hosting me over at your place. Rereading some of your stuff this weekend when I was typing up my spiel had me laughing out loud – you are truly gifted, Miss Darla.

    Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt.

    Wait, what do you mean there’s no T-shirt? What the hell did I send money over there for then? Oh damn, what a rip-off!! Sigh. Ok, fine . . . I guess I’ll just have to enjoy the experience of reading your blogger of the month post. That will just have to do. Good thing you are so darn funny Pegalicious!!
