And the Winner is...

I want to thank Quirky Loon for giving me this award. As you can tell by her name, she is quite qualified to give out awards to quality blogs such as mine.



Isn't it pretty? I guess I need to pass it along to some other award-worthy blogs. These go to any blog which has actually made me laugh out loud this week. Here they are:

Unfinished Rambler made me LOL when he didn't get my "Shining" reference from yesterday's post. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he was kidnapped and held hostage in an obscure, non English speaking country for the entire 1980's. Please make sure to check him out!

I also got a laugh out of a comment left on my Shining post. It was from the people who bring you the funny and entertaining blog, The Adventures of Jeff and Jenn. When they referenced, "Gimmie the bat!", my coffee almost flew out my nose. I love that part of the movie. "I'm not gonna hurt you, Wendy! I'm just gonna bash your head in!", or something like that. Just precious! Jack Nicholson is one scary MFer in that movie.

Here is the clip. It is long, so just go to 4 minutes, 10 seconds in to see the funny scary part. I put this clip in for Unfinished Rambler's homework. There will be a short, multiple choice quiz on Friday.

My next recipient has a must-read blog called Crotchety Old Man Yells at Cars. His wordless wednesday pic for today is a LOLer. I'm still trying to come up with a good caption besides the "all work and no play" one.

Now go check these guys out and tell them Kirsten sent ya!

It's true, I was abducted in the 1980s. But if there ever was a decade that needed to be missed, it was the '80s-- and I, for one, am glad to have missed it. Unfortunately, I'm still missing some of the decades -- wait, there hasn't even been two-- in between.

The Shining. OK. I really did know that wasn't your hallway but I decided to play nice and play along. I don't think I was ever brave enough to see that movie.

Congrats on the award!

The Shining I am sorry to say was the STUPIDEST movie in the whole world. I am a huge King fan and the movie was a mockery of the book. Other than that you deserve that award, you are too cool. Remember sweetums, opinions are like assholes everyone has one.:0
Yeah, I have one
