Awards!!! Hooray for ointment edition

MM's eye is all cleared up! Yay!

Now to the prizes, which will be brief tonight 'cause I'm bushed.

Old Skool, by popular acclaim, goes to amy for "just sat here for 6 minutes, waiting for the local forecast, and missed it"

Whine of Substance goes to prodigal whiner DevilMacDawg. We're glad to have you back, but are sorry about the fireplacing cancer. If good wishes could cure it, you wouldn't have to go for any other treatment. We are all sending healing thoughts to you.

kathy a. wins the Style Award for her stylin':
"i am about to go back out in my nightgown and a sweater, and to perhaps be more cranky"
You are my hero.

Miranda wins the Awesome Parenting Award for her "Anti-whine: They love their new money earning system and I love off-loading things that stress me out like meal prep and planning to those who think it much more funner." Her kids are shopping and cooking, yo!

You, too, are my hero.

purple_kangaroo wins the Miss Manners Conundrum Award for a sticky situation: How do you nicely tell the drunk neighbor to keep his hands and opinions away from your kids if he's a peach when he's sober?
I think the answer may involve a cluestick posse. But I think that your idea of letting the wife know is a good one.

We are hauling out the cluestick posse to send over to Sue's congregation. What with the refusal to change the call to a 30-hour week, the fireplacing wedding rehearsal that went over two hours, and the parents of the kids at the rehearsal who neglected to tell their little darlings
"that throwing Bibles to each other in church is bad form"
Let's repeat that. Throwing. BIBLES. in. CHURCH.


And last, but certainly not least, we are sending the Silver Scissors Award to Name Under Development, whose stylist completely changed NUD's hairstyle WITHOUT ASKING FIRST. Because she "got bored". BORED??? I'm guessing NUD's stylist was a kid whose parents let her throw Bibles in church.

Apologies to KLee for inadvertently handing her title to Madeleine. You are the one and only Reluctant Prophet, KLee.

And that's it for this week, folks. Tune in next week when your host will anyone want to host next week kathy a!!!

Sorry for your loss, PK. I hope everyone by you is getting what they need (and that includes you!).

Lovely Awards Under Mantle of Exhaustion, Liz!

Elizabeth said...

I'm so sorry, PK. How is your husband doing?

purple_kangaroo said...

Thanks, All. DH is doing OK . . . pretty busy with helping make funeral arrangements, etc. Mostly concerned about his mom.

We've known for about 2.5 years now that FIL had cancer and a heart condition, so it wasn't really a surprise, but it happened rather suddenly. He was throwing a ball around with the grandkids that morning, and gone by evening.
