Long Live the Queen

The Wizard of Otin who really is a wizard of wiz if ever where ever a wiz there was ... gave me this awesome award and I love it.

The rules are simple:

1. List 7 things that make me awe-summm!

2. Pass the award onto 7 bloggers that I love

3. Tag those bloggers to let them know they are now Queens too (and link back to the Queen who tagged you)

So here goes - Seven reasons why I think I am the Queen

1. Because I told the book club I was when I started it and they all agreed

2. I love bringing people together (whether they like it or not) I am planning a party on the 16th to introduce my sister and her husband who are moving home from Boston to all the cool people we have met in our itty-bitty town.

3. I am the only female in our household, except for the gecko but I am not convinced that it is a she and apparently the only way to find out involves a probe.

4. I was the first grandchild on both my mother's and father's sides of the family and that made me a Princess from birth, so naturally I am now Queen

5. For my 40th birthday the gift I received the most of was ... crowns, of course. How well my friends know me.
6. I come from a long line of Monarchists (we Canadians love our royal family), woke up early in the morning to have crumpets and tea while watching Charles & Diana get married and did it again for Sarah and Andrew.
7. We are easily amused and I agree with Marie Antionette, "Let then eat cake."

So now on to the others who are Queens in my royal estimation:

Bitchin' Wives - she is the Queen of us MOB's, what with moving to England with her boys
A Day in the Life ... - she is the Queen of the burbs
Etc, Etc, Etc. - another MOB Queen
Sane without Drugs - she will always be my Queen after sending me "Big Balls"

Mama Goose - another MOB Queen (funny how many of us there are blogging. Coincidence? I think not)

Monkey Muck - He is the King of all of us Queens

Drowning in Kids - she is a single Mum and the Queen of all she surveys


  1. Michel gets cake? You get big balls? I got nothing! LMAO!

  2. LOL!!! Thank you!!!

    Good to hear from you. You truly deserved the queen award.

  3. and Queen you are :) Nicely done!

  4. I think my Mom is a long lost member of your familia. She totally did #6! Congrats on the award!

  5. You are a QUEEN!! Hey Queenie I finally posted the 10th photo post!! Took me forever....

  6. And here's one more item: You write a very interesting blog!

  7. Oh my dear, but how this did make me smile all day today!! I kept wanting to give "queenly waves" to people passing by!
    Thanks so very much...and from one MOB to another...we rock!!
    Long live the Queens!!
    Will put up my post in a day or two!!

  8. Hey! I don't know how I missed this! Thanks!! MOB's do rock indeed! :)

  9. Well, I feel like a big jerk! Thank you so much for this award that I just found with help from my new blog re-design. ;) Yes, us MOBs gotta stick together and get each other's backs.

    I'm not sure if you will be able to stand this, but here a couple links to readings from the blogher community keynote address... both fathers to the daughters. I wept like a baby listening to them both. :( I love my boys, but still grieve for the daughter I'll never have. Will it ever get better? My DIL's better be awesome, is all I'm sayin'. :)
