Goodfather at GoodfatherBlog has awarded me with a man award! GF and his friend, Captain Dumbass, felt that all the awards being showered upon bloggersville were just a little too much on the feminine side. So GF came up with an award of his own:

It's so manly, I'm about to swoon! But seriously, folks, having this very masculine award bestowed upon me is quite an honor. That GF thinks my blog measures up is quite flattering. But giving this tall, dark and handsome award to me with that macho measuring tape just makes me want to go out in the garage and fix something, drink beer, smoke a cigar and spew obscenities. Hmm, that sounds just like when I bake?

Like any award worth it's salt, this one comes with rules and they are as follows:

1. Say one nice thing to a man in your life. I told My Harley Stud he has a cute butt. (And he does.)

2. List at least six ways that you measure success in your life (or for your blog).

  1. Living within your means
  2. Working at something that gives you pleasure and a sense of accomplishment.
  3. Finding contentment
  4. Losing the desire to keep up with the Jones'. (whoever they are)
  5. Giving back in a way that's meaningful to you
  6. Owning a vehicle that has multiple cup holders.
Accomplishing these things is the hard part.

3. Assign this award to six other blogs and leave them a comment telling the blogger that you’ve assigned them this award.
  1. After the Dust Settles
  2. Anecdotes, Antidotes and Anodes
  3. Bear Naked
  4. Highway Hags
  5. Indianahomegrown
  6. My Life Interrupted
  7. Nana Diaries
  8. Nanny Goats in Panties
  9. Nothing Fancy
  10. Slap Happy Musings
  11. The Blue Ridge Gal
  12. The Chicago Blogger
  13. The Daily Rant
(Sorry, I can't count)

4. Link back to the blog that you received this award from. check

I would like to thank Goodfather for awarding me with this most pretigious bling for my blog. GF is truly a favorite of mine and that he would include me in this very talented group of people touches my heart and my ego. GF, you ROCK!

I would like to be the first to congratulate the above listed blogs to whom I am passing this honor. Wear this badge with pride and keep on doing what you do.

Congratulations on this great award...very creative...and thank you for passing it on to me. I promise to do something with it soon. I just need more then 2 minutes to think and lately I'm lucky to have 5 seconds...ugh. Enjoy your cigar, and beer while fixing something in the garage and try not to get too loud with all those obscenities...and you may as well grab your crotch a few times and then you will really fit the part!

Was that you I heard belching? LOL

goodfather said...

Hi SMB - thanks for the link-back! Your list is awesome. I especially identify with not keeping up with the Jones's of the world.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

MLS-The truth hurts. LOL

Smiles-No worries. This is a busy time for everyone. I see less blogging in my future this month. Or at least shorter entries.
Oh and yes, sorry that was me. Drinking and smoking do that to me sometimes. LOL

Thistle-Oh, I'm sure.

Bear-Hmmm? I'll do just that. Thanks.

GF-Amen to that, brother.

RW-Thank you very much.

Yay! And Thanks!!! Now, I'm gonna grab a bag of fritos, lay on the couch and watch football - like any manly man would do. AHHHHHH...the good life!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Lynn-Thank you and you're welcome. No pressure. It's a busy time for everyone. Don't sweat the small stuff.

Psuedo-That is a manly idea!

Fancy-Thanks and you're welcome. Sounds wonderful to me!

Diana said...

Hey! Thanks so much. It's been so great reading your blog. I'm so glad to have met you!

qtpie said...

Oh cool! My first award, but I have a lot of learning to do about this blog thing. I need help! I don't know how to link anything, I just learned how to insert a picture, so before I can accept this award... How do I accept this award?????

Hedon said...


Our first award! Thanks! I think I'll build a whole seperate page just to house it. Let's see I'll need my tool belt, tape measure, nails, beer...

And this project will not be like the time I left the bathroom trim off for six months after laying new tile in the bathroom. (That last part there is in case Stace comes over here reading since I don't think I'm technically allowed to do DIY projects anymore even on a website probably)

Guess I had also better start thinking about what makes us a success... other than finally getting the trim installed again in the bathroom.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Diana-Your welcome and congrats!

QTP-I will email you tomorrow and let you know how to link, etc.

Hedon-HAHA! I can't wait to see your new page.
