Hello Sailor, a most talented writer documenting her battle with chronic depression, veterinary nurse and the British daughter I never had, has nominated me for the One Loverly Blog Award. I thought it said Loverly but it’s Lovely. Loverly sounds so British and Eliza Doolittle, I’m sticking with Loverly.
As with many major blog awards, there are rules that the recipient must abide by; by which the recipient must abide; abide must thy recipient rules.
Rule 1: Thank the bestower of the award. Thank you Hello Sailor. Please read Carrie’s blog she is a funny and complicated woman. I have learned much from her.
Rule 2: Share 7 things about myself.
Seven Things About Maggie, The Lady Boner Edition (for my new readers, click on that and it will explain Lady Boner):
I had a serious Lady Boner for David Lee Roth in Van Halen’s “Panama” video. We had a VCR and I taped the video from MTV (yes, back when MTV was known for playing music videos, remember the rocket blasting off?) and I would watch David Lee Roth over and over again.
Paul Newman was hot whether the movie was Cool Hand Luke, The Sting, or Empire Falls when he was 80. Just H. O. T.
When I didn’t know who Zac Efron was and I saw Hairspray, I had a Mrs. Robinson Lady Boner for Zac.
Joel Kinnaman, The Killing, bad boy Lady Boner.
Republican Budget Lady Boner for Paul Ryan and he’s cuuuute!!!
Since it’s Gay Pride season, Gay Love Lady Boner for Rupert Everett. He’s dreamy. Or was.
And duh, Ryan Gosling.
Rule 3: Nominate 10 other blogs for the Lovely Blog Award. These are all good and they are funny or pretty so give them a click, you’ll thank me and I’ll probably get another major award.
Drunk Good Idea/Sober Bad Idea – Calhoun is a funny guy and most everyone I know can relate to his blog. Everyone I know over 21.
Serenity in the City – Margarita makes me pine for NYC. Katie, go through her photos!!
Sincerely, Slapdash – This is her second blog and I think it’s even better than the first. I hear what she’s sayin’ and I’m sorry she has to live in Flahrida.
Bring Me the Head of David Dixon – Guaranteed laugh a day! And he made this one just for me!!
BadFads – I’m a little annoyed with her because I now notice fashion but she is right and posts photos of famous people that make me feel better about my sartorial choices. She uses the word “sartorial”; it’s a good word.
Joe’s Shitty Ideas – Joe is a great idea. Just click and read just that one and tell me he’s not hysterical. Trust me. Really.
The Byronic Man – Very funny and a hottie. Click for his post on scary toys. Seriously. Now. It’s just a few words to your left.
Christopher DeVoss – DeVery funny. Here’s his blog on Bratz which are the devil’s spawn.
Not So Fancy Nancy – This is a unique blog, I don’t know of another like it. It is a tribute to Nancy’s father (she is going through his letters from WWII) and recognizes other WWII vets. I’ve just been watching Ken Burns’ The War. This generation is leaving us daily and I will miss them. Good stuff.
The Blissful Adventurer – In case you ever need to plan a trip to Italy or just want to drool over his photos of the country and the food and the wine. That’s what I do.
Rule 4: Tell the bloggers they’ve been nominated but they’ll know by the 4s of readers pouring in from my site.
