The Best Damn Acceptance Speech Period

I didn’t get to watch the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet last night like I usually love to do but I did get a chance to watch a part of the actual awards which I hardly ever do. It was fun to see some of my favorite cast members from my favorite shows win awards. The Emmy’s seem to humble even the biggest stars and to startle and shock the bejesus out of unsuspecting ones too.

I am a big fan of Nursie Jackie and although Edie Falco is a great actress, for me Zoey (played by Merritt Wever) brings the show full circle by being somewhat of the comedic relief for an otherwise heavy topic of a functional drug addict who happens to be a nurse. Zoey is the super kooky, cute and somewhat naive city girl who looks up to no nonsense Nurse Jackie but also surprises us sometimes when she occasionally brings Jackie down to size with her unexpected voice of reason.

Last night Zoey I mean Merritt won for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy and there was no hiding the fact that she was completly shocked by the win. Here is her super cute and quite possibly the best acceptance speech ever:

Congratulations Merritt, well deserved!!!

LIEBSTER AWARD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

liebster award

This past Wednesday I was nominated for the Liebster Award by a fellow blogger http://evanescentincrements.wordpress.com/ (check out the blog it’s pretty awesome!). Thank you Evanescent Increments for one taking the time to read my rants and two for thinking them good enough to deserve an award. This is AMAZEBALLS!

The rules are as follows:

  1. Proudly display the Liebster badge
  2. Thank the person that nominated you
  3. Share 11 random things about yourself
  4. Nominate 11 bloggers worthy of the award (with less than 200 followers)
  5. Answer the 11 questions asked of you
  6. Pose 11 questions to your nominees

Okay so here goes nothing. 

My 11 random things:

1. I like to sing songs in my opera voice.
2. Lots of times I feel like an outcast / freak of nature and then I spend time with my family and realize that I’m not alone, we’re all complete and total idiots.
3. I stalk my daughter. I spend at least 30 minutes a day staring at her sleep.
4. I adore my few friends. They are made of something special to deal with me and my madness all the time.
5. In the past 2 or 3 years I’ve found myself wishing that I actually read the books I was required to read in high school (ie. Of Mice & Men, To Kill a Mockingbird etc). I’m not sure how I passed that class with such good grades.
6. I am the Queen of TMI.
7. Most nights I sleep with balled up tissue in my nose…sinus issues (see Queen of TMI)
8. I love bangle bracelets. Ever since I was a baby I’ve worn bangles, I feel a sense of security from the noise they make.
9. I surely hope that my daughter’s voice isn’t as annoyingly squeaky as mine.
10. I’ve had 2 other blogs but I feel a strong sense of accomplishment with this one.
11. I wish that I grew up on the West Coast so that I could have been part of a dance crew.

Here are my 11 nominees for the Liebster Award: like Evanescent Increments stated this process is gruesome as most of the blogs I follow have over 200 followers, so in the spirit of following the rules I
