IAAT. Don’t You Just Love Obscure Acronyms?

After the many trials and tribulations of being awarded and awarding memes, I suddenly came to a conclusion.  I'm going to start my own award.

You heard me.  These things have to start somewhere, right?  Why not me?  And I mean, I figure I can operate under the time-honored tradition of believing that what is highly annoying in others is totally fabulous in oneself.  Ergo, another meme with which to blatantly promote oneself whilst simultaneously irritating the crap out of everyone else.  Awesomeness.

Except, I don't really care if other people are stylish or crafty or beautiful.  I care about their deep-seated personality quirks.   I also have little sense of personal confidentiality.  I'm a "I am what I am" kind of person.  I like to treat others as if they are too.  Frankly, my first thought for this meme was not, "Can you crochet an antimacassar?" but more something like, "Who's on your Celebrity Free Pass list?"  See?  I have no personal boundaries.

Angie A is laughing now, because she already knows who's on my free pass list.  Like I said, I have no sense of personal boundaries (and I feel perfectly comfortable boring someone else with my own delusional fantasy life).

So here's my brand-spankin' new blog award:

IAAT Award

The recipients of this award are asked to answer the following questions, link to whoever awarded them and then pass it on to five, no six people (who they think will actually be willing to answer these totally intrusive and possibly inappropriate questions).  Feel free to snag the badge too, right?


1) What size shoe do you wear?  If you wear a size 7, can I borrow your shoes?

2) 30's or 60's?

3)  Have you ever kissed someone you shouldn't have?

4) Have you ever been poisoned?  Was it by the girlfriend of the person you kissed??  That is awesomely "Knot's Landing".

5) Who's on your "Celebrity Free Pass" list (top 5)?


Here, I'll answer too.  Lest you think I can dish but can't take.

1) 7.  No, you can’t.

2) 60’s.

3) Yes.

4) No.  But I would so totally love to be that Knot’s Landingly awesome.  Wouldn’t you?

5) hmmm… this changes pretty routinely.  Today it’s A] Henry Cavill (quit laughing, Angie A)   B] Robert Downey Jr (I can hear you sniggering, Miss A)   C] Daniel Craig (shush, you)   D] Karl Urban (hush up there, missy) and, uh,   E] Simon Pegg.  (Don’t ask.  I have no idea.)

And I now hereby and forthwith pass along this new award to:

Angie A. at Quality Time

Big In Japan at Big In Japan

Laura at Edgy June Cleaver

Heather at Li’l Miss Muffet

Tanit-Isis at Tanit-Isis Sews

Oonaballoona at Oonaballoona From Kalkatroona

Why?  Because they're sassy.  Which should be enough of a reason.  But I also completely and whole-heartedly believe they ARE. All. That. 

Plus, they might actually answer the questions.  Possibly. 


  1. Oh great.

    What is "celebrity free pass" ?

  2. O.M.G. Girlfriend. The list of celebrities you get to sleep with and your S.O. can't argue about it.

    'Cuz you know it would so totally be likely to ever come up and all....

  3. Ah man, THANKS!! You, my friend, are so totally ALL that and a bag o' chips...

    @ Julia: thank you!!

    @ oona: thhhhhhbbbbbppppptttt!

    I just realized that four of my five list have or will be playing super heros in a movie. Uh... I have a super hero fetish?? I had no idea. See, you learn something new about yourself every day.

  8. I need to do a blog awards post and have been avoiding it because I don't have seven things to share with the blogosphere, I think I may steal your questions. Good job making up your own meme. I like that.

  9. w00t! I has an award! And what a great one it is at that! Plus the questions are so absolutely Beangirl...

    1) What size shoe do you wear? If you wear a size 7, can I borrow your shoes? I wear a size 11 because I am a giant and you can borrow my shoes if you want to tube the river next spring. Just NOT the Cole Haans.

    2) 30's or 60's? Both

    3) Have you ever kissed someone you shouldn't have? Yeah...scuffle scuffle...toe in dirt...yeah I have.

    4) Have you ever been poisoned? Was it by the girlfriend of the person you kissed?? That is awesomely "Knot's Landing". Not poisoned just shunned which is more Dawson's Creek than Knot's Landing.

    5) Who's on your "Celebrity Free Pass" list (top 5)? George Clooney, Sharon Stone, Maggie Gallenthall (yeah it's misspelled), Naveen Andrews, Timothy Olaphant.

  10. Thanks for the award, too! It's a hoot and the other award winners have fun blogs!

  11. I'm really glad I checked your blog for what 'celebrity free pass' is - a lovely blogger has sent your award to me and I assumed it meant something entirely different - that could have been embarrassing!


You know you want to say something....
