Winning like Charlie Sheen Only In A Less Crazy Way

Wow... we never win anything. I know I always say this and I won the last 4 contests I entered (4 out of 4 isn't bad, right?). But we've now won 5 awards!

We would have posted this earlier but apparently Demanda has a life outside of blogland (I think she's trying to channel Elusive S lately)

When we started this blog, it was just a little thought and we never really expected people to like it or even follow it. I mean of course WE think we're funny but a lot of people just don't GET us. We're in our own little world a lot of times and just assumed that no one else really understands.

But now it seems that you love us, you REALLY love us! Thanks to Twired, 17 Forever Lisa, Inspired By Lemons, Spooning in Forks and Twikiwi, we won the Lovely Blog Award.

This may have something to do with laundry baskets.

Award Rules

To accept this award one must follow the rules.
1. Thank the person that gave it to you and link it back to their blog.
2. Post 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs.

7 Random Facts about Demanda and Jaymes

1. We've been friends for 18 years. And true story, when we just figured this out, we both gave each other a grossed out look.
2. When we were in 8th grade, our english teacher called us and 3 of our girl friends "ladies of the club". We used to dress and act like we were straight out of the movie Clueless. We reserved 10 minutes at the beginning and end of class for "gossip time". Our teacher quit and we then went through 4 different teachers that year because none of them could handle our class.
3. Randomly, in the middle of conversations with each other, we will just start slapping our own asses. No idea why our how this started but we still will carry on a perfectly serious conversation while doing so.
4. On New Years Eve 2001, we stood in our kitchen and took 11 shots of rum in under 10 minutes. We both started feeling iffy and then someone yelled out that they had been double shots. We passed out before midnight and didn't wake up for about 24 hours.
5. In 2000 we lived in a two bedroom apartment with 3 of our friends. We shared a room and Demanda used to wake Jaymes up by throwing mardi gras beads at her head.
6. One of our FAVORITE movies is "Not Another Teen Movie". We quote the shit out of it.
7. Demanda used to make fun of Jaymes for loving Twilight. Even though Demanda had been to Twilight and New Moon, she still thought they were lame. Jaymes tried to get Demanda to read the books but Demanda wasn't feeling it. Finally they went to see Eclipse and Demanda was hooked. You know the rest of the story.

Thank you!! You guys definitely deserve it! I am so overwhelmed by this award cause I think I have won about 7 and I can't remember all of them from who and everyone I think to nominate has already gotten 1 or 5, so even thinking about doing a post about it stresses me out so much that I think it may be healthier to just leave it alone. Apparently winning too many of these awards also causes run on sentences.

Maybe just post random facts about yourself, say thank you but don't say what for. That might confuse people but they'll also be intrigued so I think its a win win.

Thank you thank you!!!! Geez...glad you all woke up after that New Year's Eve would have been stomach pump land for me. LOL!

Aww! You can awkwardly hug me AND smack my arse when I come and stay if you like.

Thanks lovelies, you rock. And your random facts just make me heart you both even more.

I just realized (yeah, I'm slow sometimes) that one of the benefits of this award is finding new blogs. Most of us hang out around the same crowd, but there always seems to be one or two blogs listed that I hadn't heard of.

PS- Is you gonna add me to the blogs listed on the left now that we have bonded by passing the award between us?

Congrats on the bloggy award!!! (I also nommed this one and Rathgasm101, because they are that awesome!)

Clueless is one of the best 90s movies ever! And how do you not get Twilight??? Many fun facts... I am trying to think of the Not Another Teen Movie... I know I have seen it, but am drawing a blank this morning. It's still too early.

Neither of you are human, apparently. I mean, I had my suspicions and all but 11 shots in ten minute??? Even I threw up in my a little thinking about it and I'm a pro drinker.

Throwing mardi gras beads at someone's head (or just mine, really) sounds like a fucking death sentence.

You gals are great, btw. xoxo.

I'm with JJ on the rum-shot fact - I mean, enough vodka is consumed in these parts to shame the national population of Russia, but 10 *double* shots in 10 minutes?! well, we're glad you're still among us - lol...

and THANK YOU!!! we are more "tawdry" than "lovely" but i don't think they make an award for that... : )
