Post #251: How Awesome Am I?

It's just another manic Monday and I have been asked, nay told, to blog about how awesome I am. You know, as a form of motivation and encouragement. It's a mighty fine idea. But it is also a lot like saying "blog about what it's like to be a rocket scientist". I know very little about either topic. But, whatever, I'll try. I've lied before, I can do it again.

I am not in a narrative mood so you're getting a list. Deal with it.

Did I mention that I quit smoking? I am quitting, I should say. This is day 1. Therefore, if I seem a little basket-case-y, it's because this is harder than that time I quit heroin.

20 ways that I am awesome...

(Disclaimer: Before you send me a comment or email that says "X isn't awesome", just remember that Awesomeness is in the eye of the beholder.)

  • I can figure out wrought iron puzzles.

  • I know how to make people smile.
  • I know how to make me smile. Usually.
  • I raised two awesome kids who got 23 of their chromosomes from me.
  • I have a cute butt.
  • I have the bestest husband in the whole wide world. (& he LOVES me, too)
  • I have two adorable and very sweet kittehs.
  • I am reasonably intelligent and I do well in school.
  • I make a mean macaroni & cheese.
  • I have a really cute boyfriend who thinks I'm keen. Maybe not.
  • I can do many difficult things. Like read my bosses' minds.
  • I can talk about a lot of different things.
  • I am a good dancer (and good in the sack, too! Or so I'm told.)
  • I have nice handwriting and I can do other talented things with my hands.
  • I can't believe you are still reading this list.
  • I had no idea that you were so bored/curious/retarded.
  • I hope that if you read this far, you will just make something up about me.
  • I would like it in the comments. Also, tell me how you are awesome.
  • I hope you don't tell anyone that this is a phony list.
  • I also hope that you think you are awesome. Everyone is - in their own way!

So, wish me luck in getting through the next few days. If I manage to not go homicidal, then everything will be great. This is actually easier than I thought. In fact, I know weaker people than me who have successfully quit, so really this should be a piece of cake. Woohoo. I'm awesome!

congrats on the whole smoking thing. it's tough, but i noticed that after a few days i hardly even remembered doing it. it's weird like that.

and your list? you forgot a huge one. you have excellent taste in music. (and friends too, for that matter.)

No one could doubt your awesomeness. Good luck quitting. I've done it and I'm still alive and sane.

It's hard to quit smoking but you can do it because you are awesome. And I'm awesome for having quit too!

You are awesome because you can form the plural possessive of the word "boss" correctly.

Sorry. I'm a grammar geek.
