I got another award.

Even better, I got the super sweet blogging award. You didn’t get it right? The “i” is capital, doesn’t it show? What’s wrong with you WordPress??? Fine, I got the super sweet blogging award! Now i guess we all get it…

Ok, i am not making myself clear…. It is really an honor getting another award, and that is because i see new faces in my blog once and a while, and getting an “i like you” sign makes me smile! (and boosts my self-esteem :P)

The weird thing is a certain word in this award. I am many things but i have never considered myself sweet. Nope, not a chance. Sure, i am a lovely cow, i can’t deny that, but i ‘ve always considered myself something like an angry dog, and i have indications that some people have the same opinion about me!

Sure, i am the smiling kind of person, i celebrate stupid things like the first day of the summer, i am not grouchy in the morning (after i have my coffee), i don’t like conflicts and yelling, and i am generally easy-going (when i am not tempered at least).

But sweet? SWEET????

For starters i don’t like the sound of it. When other women call me “Sweety” it sounds quite derogatory, and it just makes me sooooo angry… Plus i hate pink. Isn’t PINK the sweetest color??? I am not fond of Tweety either! Is there really much more to say???

=> This is not an attack to the award itself  or the friend-blogger who awarded me!

For Christ’s sake no! I love other people saying nice things to me! 🙂 And an award is a very nice thing to say! So thank you http://simplycaptured9.wordpress.com/, i am gonna ignore my sweet allergy thing and be a sweet blogger for a while (i give me, hmmmmmmm, 2 minutes)!

Being super sweet, i am gonna answer the questions…

1.       Cookies or Cake?

I am a cookie monster, so there is essentially no question. neeeext!

2. Chocolate or Vanilla?

Chocolate please. I like the way it looks on my white t-shirts 

 3. What is your favorite sweet treat?

I don’t think i have a favorite one….i eat them all, i know it’s shocking! (you see, easy-going!)

4. When do you crave sweet things the most?

Honestly? When i have hydraulic issues… And i don’t mean my kitchen sink!!!!

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?

Oh please, not a sweet nickname!!!!!! My friends call me Jo.


I know that wasn’t very sweet about me, but i just don’t have it, nothing sweet about me.

Now i am supposed to nominate 12 other fellow bloggers for this sweet award! I would loooove to get some of you in my position! Muahaha! (evil laugh)

I know though, that these awards and their rules are a bit pain in the ass for some, so i ‘ll just have to make a clarification, these nominations are RULE FREE! It’s just a way to spread that sweetness around! Come on, when will i ever get the chance to spread any kind of sweetness??? Only if i shared candies…. Plus this is just a way to say “I like you” or “I am like you” or “i remember your URL by heart” or just a ” 🙂 “. Of course if you like you can play along with the rules!

So sit back and relax.

I thought i would try and be fair, try to actually mention the SWEET bloggers i follow. That’s a tough one though… So i decided not to push myself over this and just give the award to the people i mostly read! Thant’s easy! 🙂

I haven’t finished writing this post when i got another message: “I nominated you for an award. Come by and pick it up whenever you like… 🙂 http://lavieeclectique.com/2012/08/22/awards-awards-awards/

“I got another?” i thought to myself….. Come on, make a wild guess! YES ANOTHER SWEET AWARD!!!! Oh, wait, A SUPER SWEET blogging award….!

Come on people, i can’t be that sweet, it’s not true! Double nomination, double sweetness, i think i have to do something very bad today, like eat all the cookies of the cookie jar…. (sorry mom-in advanced)

Now, now, apart from all my grunting, i am so flattered to get an award (another award!), i can’t lie, so thank you so much http://lavieeclectique.com/!!! And, to be honest, i am even more flattered you think i am sweet…. So here is, to both of my friends, a bigger

thank you!

I should be brave and come out of the closet, admit it, look myself in the eye and say it. Fine, i guess i am kinda sweet…


This is supposed to be a funny post (i am always just kidding), 
i don't mean to offend my friend-bloggers who nominated me!:)

  1. Oh Thank you. You really are a sweet person. I am honoured that you follow me and the zoo. it is now spring here and suddenly the birds are very noisy and active.
    Btw in Cape Town there is my daughter’s 3 legged cat too.

  2. Thanks for the mention. And as I see it all sweetie jokes have already been made.

    Maybe interesting to know that we actually (within the family) often say we are sweet, because we like all the sweet-stuff 😉

  3. Thanks Ionna from Georgie and me. We are honored to be one of your nominees, and that this is Rule Free! You are sweet indeed – Georgie thinks so too. He is out in the yard chasing squirrels right now – I’ll let him know.

  4. How did you know my weakness? I love sweets and nothing more sweeter than an award that brightens my day. Congratulations for being an inspiration for others . I’m grateful my friend. Best wishes.
