Someone, Somewhere Finds Me Funny. Or At Least Crazy. I'm a Nominee!


Yesterday was a mournful Monday, as my mood matched the gloomy weather and I found myself concentrating on all the things I'm not.  Either a little encouragement goes a long way or I'm just a sucker for someone saying, "Hey, I like you!".  Probably the latter, but either way it's a Beautiful Tuesday (Yes, that was a shameless plug for my son's band) because at least three people think I'm funny.  Yup, that's right. Terri at Accidentally Homeschooling (go VOTE for her for Best Thrifty Homeschooler!) mentioned in a post comment that I'd been nominated for Funniest Homeschool Blog in the much-more-prestigious-but-not-quite-as-fun-as-the-misfits Homeschool Blog Awards!

I admit it, I squeed. It had never occurred to me to check that particular category, as I never imagined anyone would think I fit there.  This morning I read the description and discovered I do.

"11. Funniest Homeschool Blog  We all need a laugh in-between laundry, lesson plans and losing our cool. It is nice to get your smile back so you can share it with your students (who can only take “so much gloom” as Ma Walton said so eloquently on The Waltons television series). Nominate your favorite crack-pot or crack-up homeschool blog here."

Crack-up may not be an accurate description but crack-pot certainly is and I bear that label with pride! And as I read down the nominee list, I recognized a fellow homeschool crack-pot.  I must say, it's such an honor to be nominated along with my crazy bloggy friend, Firefly Mom over at Pack of Hungry Snails. I bow to her snarkiness and bask in the shadow of her sarcasm.  Snort. 

She's funnier but vote for me anyway. 'Cause I'm competitive like that. ;-) Not that anyone has a chance up against The Pioneer Woman.  Her food p*rn doesn't make me laugh, but it does make me want to lick the screen.  That has to be worth something.

Anyway, I don't see myself as funny.  Crazy, yes. Funny, not so much.  But that's okay, I'm a crack-pot misfit and God loves me just the way I am 'cause He's the one who made me this goofy.  And three people find me funny.  And I have a new plot for National Novel Writing Month. And I'm cooking a turkey dinner tonight and then going to Starbuck's for a Write-In. And my crazy kids are currently engaged in a word war for a mini box of Nerds. And I'm wearing a size smaller jeans.  And I'm rambling on my blog for the whole world to see...or anyone who stumbles across it anyway. 'Cause sometimes life is good and you just want to share.  

So there you have it.

Congrats on the nomination -- and I think you're pretty funny. Then again, I'm not all that funny, so perhaps I'm not the best one to ask!

I sent out some major spam this morning fishing for votes for my nomination, because I think you are funny, I asked for votes for you also. I think you are mondo funny. I hope you win, even though I will be jealous...I'd rather be funny than thrifty.

@Jamie- I admit to being giddy at one person thinking I am funny. Yeah, I'm easy to please. Or pitiful. Probably both! ;-)

@Terri- You, my dear, are both funny AND thrifty. I'm not thrifty at all. I am the one who chooses the purple suede boots and can't pass up Starbucks. You're my funny, thrifty hero. And I thank you for the spam, lol.

You're funny even when I'm not tired.
