Another Award? You Shouldn't Have!

The lovely (and redheaded) MelO over at It's just easier that way... gave us the much coveted "I Love Your Blog" award. I know you're all thinking, "You haven't won that yet? How is that even possible?!" but I assure you, dear readers, this is the first time someone has said, in public, that they love our blog (well, apart from all those other times people said it).

Rather than following the prescribed rules and passing the award along willy nilly (because breaking rules and saying ridiculous things like "willy nilly" is how I roll), I decided to remake it into something you may care about and perhaps even comment upon (because, like all bloggers, I love comments more than a fat kid loves cake and seriously, fat kids love the hell out of some cake). So, yeah. Taking a page from Liz's hugely successful "Guess who's coming to dinner" post, I'm asking, Which 5 bloggers and/or internet personalities would you like to meet out for drinks? My list:

Falwless - Fal was the first commenter none of us actually knew. Always hilarious, Liz and I have kinda developed an obession about meeting her. Someday she will visit. Oh, yes. It will happen. Mark my words, or something.

BeckEye - I imagine if Fal, BeckEye and I all got together, it would spell some serious trouble, and there are few things I love more than some good ol' fashioned trouble.

The Fug Girls - Again, hilarious, good-time girls. This is apparently turning into a girls night out. Sorry, fellas.

The Other Red - Because, as I always say, the more redheads in one room at the same time, the better. Seriously, I say that at least 5 times a day. People usually just look at me like I'm insane, but what do they know? Dummies!

The Guv - I'd love to grab a pint with the Guv, although, she'd probably eat all that proverbial fat kid's cake. Screw that kid! He should definately cut back anyway.

(By the way, MelO is obviously invited as well because she gave us the lovely award and whatnot.)
You all win the I Love Your Blog award (which I'm sure you've all won before), but more importantly, you have won the opportunity to post your answers to the question in the comments section! Congrats! Other people not cool enough to have drinks with the ladies, you can comment, too. You are all so very welcome.

Also, I will visit one of these days. Once I get the sex reassignment surgery. I've had you people fooled for so long. I'm really a 53 year old man.

I would only want to have dinner with you guys. (Cue the "aaawww!")

Red said...

Awww. Thanks, D. You are, of course, invited to girls night out, too, as always.

Poobomber said...

When you say you like comments it makes me want to leave comments. I'm a people pleaser.

But seriously, that's a whole lotta mischief on your itinerary. You might develop liver problems after it all.

Please invite me.

It will come to pass that us three foxy ladies will all be in one room together, drinking beers and causing T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

Dammit, now I wish I had saved my "Here Comes Trouble" tee-shirt I had when I was 9, so I could wear it to meet you guys. Of course, it probably wouldn't even cover one breast now. I'll have to buy a vintage one from eBay.

Oh hell yes miss thang. Thank you for the award, I treasure it more than my Oscar. OK it's not so much as an OSCAR as a toilet paper holder painted gold but still... I treasure yours MORE.

I'd eat EVERYONE'S share of the cake. I'm a cakeaholic. Line up the margaritas, San Diego, I'm going to crash the party and drink Fal and Beckeye under the table.

Red said...

Dr. Z: Sorry, but no dudes allowed. Whenever men wriggle their way into Girls Night Out, the chance of meeting a nice, single fella diminishes by a zillion percent. Those numbers are highly factual.

Maybe we'll have a co-ed night out at some point...maybe.

Jon said...

Since I can't come to dinner, can I at least stand outside your window and watch you eat?

Rumor has it, BeckEye's going half-topless.

Red said...

Wow! This is the first time I've ever won a blogging award. Thanks, much! It would be effing awesome to have drinks with you gals. For now, maybe I'll just send you a cosmo on Facebook...

MelO said...

YESSSS!! I'm in!

Margarita.

Rocks.

Extra salt, baby...

MelO said...

Also, I don't believe for a second that you don't have other awards... were you joking? I thought I was the only one :(

Red said...

Mel: We've won one other award, but we hadn't won this one yet. So thanks again!

As someone who is so sensitive to the issues modern broads face, I assumed I'd be grandfathered in to the ladies' night out, by which I mean you'd treat me like your grandfather: put me in the corner and ignore me completely.

But I'd probably double the tab, stare at your racks all night, and eat all the cake, so I understand. But just for that, Poobomber, Jon and I are going out on the town and talking about sports alllllll niiiiight long. And then having a pillowfight.

Pistols - YouTube or it didn't happen.

A roomful of redheads and I'm not invited? Injury, meet insult.
