Feeling The Weird Love!


Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit!

This blog has reached a milestone in it's short existence by receiving it's first "Follower of the Week" honor and blog award courtesy of the lovely and talented Hillbilly Duhn of Hillbilly Duhn's Times & Tribulations. Now I know many of you have been around for awhile and have probably received lots of awards and recognition and take these kinds of things in stride.

Not me.

I'm grinning like a possum shittin' peach seeds over here.

As a newbie blogger, I am always painfully insecure about whether people will read and appreciate the weird stuff I write. Particularly with all the amazing, funny, creative stuff that my fellow peeps in the blogosphere are cranking out on a daily basis. (You know who you are.) And though there are many times when I just don't feel like writing (I'm lazy like that), I read your blogs and am inspired to take it up another notch and try to do more.

This recognition, along with the kind comments and the new followers that have come aboard the Sophisticated Lunacy train recently, confirm that I am on the right track. So to all you followers, both new and old, thank you for sticking with me. I promise to keep it entertaining for you.

So without any further adieu, I am happier than a tornado in a trailer park to post this, my very first blog award. Ain't it sweet? Won't my momma be proud?

What makes this really special is that it is from Hillbilly Duhn, a tremendous writer who, as many of you already know, is hilariously funny and weird. I think it was this weirdness that first captured my interest in following her blog. She was one of the very first bloggers that I began to faithfully read and follow. She, in turn, became one of my first followers and commenters as well.

I first discovered her blog in early October of last year. Guys, I'm not saying that I'm a sex pervert per se (that's a topic for another day), but you have to admit that her choice of story topics are hard to pass up. How could you not want to delve further into a topic entitled "Icy Hot Nipples"? This was followed by stories about glow-in-the-dark panties, glow-in-the-dark condoms, a letter to her breasts entitled "Dear Boobers" and various stories that centered upon strap-on dildos, STD's, threesomes, ass-shaving, maxi-pads or "va jay jay covers" as she called them, and so forth.

I was compelled to follow her after that. I commented on her blog, "LOL! Great post. Just happened upon your blog and read your last few posts and between the glow-in-the-dark condoms and panties and the icy hot nipples, I am convinced that this is a blog that I can faithfully follow! How have I managed so long without you, I wonder? Thanks for the smile."

Now her blog covers the whole spectrum of writing, from some really beautiful science fiction/fantasy to articles about farting and poop (my personal faves!) If you are not a follower of hers you must be nuttier than a squirrel turd. So go git yourself over to her blog and check it out and sign up for a very funny and very weird ride. I guarantee it's more fun than a clown on fire. Now go! Don't make me come after you with a switch!


  1. “I'm grinning like a possum shittin' peach seeds over here.” Dude, that’s the funniest expression I have heard in a while and I am so ashamed that being the die-in-the-wool Southern boy that I am I never heard it before. But it will get use in the future. Thanks!

    And congratulations on your award. She is great and I have been following her like a dog in heat for some time now. She even surprised me by presenting me with her award not long after I started following her and I wasn’t even aware she even noticed my comments.

    Post it with pride, I do.

  2. Haha I agree with Coffeypot, "I'm grinning like a possum shittin' peach seeds over here," has got to be one of the funniest expressions I've never heard.

    Now I'm going to be looking everywhere in my daily life for a circumstance to use it in. haha.


  3. If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times- "You're going places, Dude!"

  4. You definitely have a great blog..have no doubts about that! And I've been following Hillbilly for a while! (That's how I found you. Thanks for following my blog,too.)

  5. Well aren't you special? Special, unique. Not special, short bus! Congrats! Hillbilly is fun!

  6. Good stuff.

    Congrats on being a loyal stalker.

    When I've had too much beer.

    I'll be back.

  8. Hey Tom!

    Congratulations!! You deserve the recognition! Soon, I can write an article titled "I Knew Him Before he Was A Superstar". Oh...um....wait...you already used that title....Well, I will think of something appropos.

    Great job!!

  10. congrats! now that you're an award winning blogger, i suppose the cool thing to do would be to follow you. so i will.

    but um . . . tip of the day: lose the music. you have great taste in it, but many people (my very sorry self included) pass right over noisy blogs. i tell you this because i like you. and your blog.

  11. Thank you everyone for your kind words, support and advice. My cup officially runneth over! Welcome to my new visitors and followers and thank you for swinging by to share the madness! I'm just scratching the surface of my weird imaginings so stop by and visit when you want to have some fun with me!

  12. Congratulations...on the well-deserved award, the first of which I expect will be many, and I was going to say I wouldn't visit her blog because it seemed too crude, but then you said, "Farting" and "poop," my personal faves too!
