Jazz Hands (Me a Meme Disguised as an Award)

Jazz got me this time. Someone gave this award to her and she remarked how a fully clothed woman in an apron hardly seems over the top. I really have to agree with that assessment. The whole thing has a very Donna Reed vibe going on and really, pumps and pearls don't strike me as very over the top. Honestly, even greeting the hubby at the door in nothing but pearls and pumps seems way too cliche to be over the top. Maybe if the award featured Kathy Bates in her Saran Wrap dress as featured in Fried Green Tomatoes you might convince me it's over the top. Maybe give that Betty Crocker gal a few facial piercings and purple hair. That might be over the top. Naw, not really, even that's become hardly noticeable.

Alternately, maybe this is a jab at my ever widening figure...you know, referring to my muffin top. In which case, I am a bit annoyed. The nerve! Seriously, now that is just over the top. And one other thing, I find it a disturbing trend that memes are now attached to these awards. As if you think buttering someone up by giving an award will somehow make them more willing to play by the rules. Pfft! You might have some luck if you were to butter some chocolate chip, or blueberry, or raspberry and lemon muffins and hand 'em to me to eat...but I am not promising anything. I have digressed. Onto the award/meme thing (since I have now skewered the award in a style not unlike Suldog's [a fine blogger who also had this award bestowed upon him], though no real offense is meant to the lovely Jazz who gave this to me just to see what I would do with it.)

The rules are:

Copy and change the answers to suit you and pass it on. (You mean I can't just rerun Jazz's answers? Picky picky picky.)

It's quite tricky to use only one word answers! (Thanks for that, Captain Obvious.)

Once you have filled it out be sure to pass it on to 6 of your favorite bloggers. (I pick you, and you, the one to your right, the guy behind you, the one wearing orange, and the one who just sauntered out in a bathrobe.)

Alert them that they have been awarded! (Consider yourselves duly alerted.)

You are still the Queen of Memes. . .

I have never eaten Turkish; I've done Greek, Arab, miscellaneous Mediterranean; Indian, Thai, even Vietnamese. . . love 'em all; but never had Turkish. . .

And (*tucking tail between legs*) I didn't know I was a jerk. . .

...Kathy Bates in her Saran Wrap dress...

According to my snobbish sister-in-law they top dollar for such fashion in New York. Now excuse me as I go get drunk trying to wash the imagine of my sister-in-law dressed like that from my mind.

Hey, you just missed by one day from sharing a birthday with Sacha Baron Cohen!

Ananda girl said...

We aren't thinking about the same Turk(ish) are we?

Ananda girl said...

Oh pooh! I hate it when I leave something out I wanted to say... Happy Birthday lime and many more returns of the day!

Well, I think your answers let me off the hook - I couldn't begin to get more creative than that.

Jocelyn said...

I knew you'd promote that meme to the next level--starting with "over the top" referring to a muffin top. That's killing me.

Um, in one answer, you mention "Hugh Jackman" in parentheses. Since you violate the terms of the meme there, you need to strike that answer and that thought and can never refer to or have Hugh again.

He'll be at my place.
Getting licked.

Memes.. I rarely read those posts. Unless its yours or Sully's. They're always fun. You never disappoint. :)
