There Goes The Neighborhood

I knew it would happen. I knew one day I would have to get out my Magic Bleeper again. That day has come. And what a shocking day it is. I couldn't believe my blog eyes when I realized that mild-mannered and ever polite Patti the Princess (Late Bloomer Boomer) who is married to dashing Sir Ralph of New England fame.....cursed on her blog. Yes, I said cursed. Can you believe it??!
Not only that, she has perpetuated this blime (that's blog + crime for all you non-blog speakers) in the direction of MY blog - which last I checked was PG Rated - and awarded me the Kick Ass Blogger Award. Cover your children's ears.

AND after she blatantly cussed (that's southern for cursed) she pretended she didn't know she did. "woops, did I just swear?" she said! That sounds like a Southern Belle line (batting Scarlett eyelashes), not a sophisticated northern girl with a doctorate in literary prowess. And what's worse? She said it succinctly!

The very least she could do is drag out the abominable deed and enjoy it awhile.

But not our Patti. When she cusses, she cusses.
And outright.

What are we gonna do with her??! What's more she cheated and broke the rules by awarding only 3 people and confounded if she didn't corrupt another one of my royals. Linda, Duchess of Norwich Upon The Thames! (who by the way just landed a really groovy job) When she's bad, she's really bad.
Not Linda, Patti. Linda's good, well so is Patti most of the time except for today when she blussed (that's blog + ....oh you know)

I do sincerely thank her for bestowing upon me this blog honor that came her way via The Teach. Based on the history of my wonderful friendship with Patti, I humbly accept this award and badge. This is the history of the award from whence it cameth!

MammaDawg is the creator of the badge. This is what she has to say about it:

Do you know any bloggers that kick ass?
Maybe they've got incredible, original content. Or they're overflowing with creativity. Is it someone that helps you become a better blogger? Or a bloggy friend you know you can count on? Or maybe it's someone who simply inspires you to be a better person... or someone else who send you to the floor, laughing your ass off.
Whatever the reason may be, I'm sure you know at least a couple of bloggers that kick ass. Well... why not tell 'em so?
The Rules:
  • Choose bloggers that you feel are "Kick Ass Bloggers"
  • Let 'em know in your post or via email, twitter or blog comments that they've received an award
  • Share the love and link back to both the person who awarded you and back to
  • Hop on back to the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky then pass it on!

Since we're breaking the blog laws (like there ARE any) feel free to abscond with this beauty and bestow it upon the best kickers you know and love. So I guess I'm in the club after all. What a hoot! That's OK. I'm in good company.

And I always have my magic bleeper. Just in case.
Thank you, Princess Patti!
Now go find a priest.

*gasp* patti???

smiles, bee

Mimi Lenox said...

Bee - Shocking, isn't it?

jennifer said...

Oh my! Tha-ut po-ah misguided Belle! Ah think she needs a Mimosa and a time out.

Congratulations on your Kick *ss Award!

I have posted the award that you bestowed to me. Thank you again.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I found it rather delightful that the Princess Patti was in possession of a potty mouth for that post (wow, that's a lot of P's!) as it added another dimension to her already perfect personality as I would think that every good journalist worth his or her salt knows how to toss out a cuss word or two!

Besides, it wasn't really a swear per say ... she could have been referring to 'ass' when used in the context of a donkey or mule, right? But then again, she doesn't strike me as the animal cruelty type so I'm sure no one would call her a kick ass blogger in that context, would they? Hmmm ...

Well, as long as she doesn't start giving out a Hot Sh*t Blogger award she should be okay! Right?

ciara said...

i'm afraid i commit blimes all the time. one of my worst habits is cursing like a sailor :(

Lois Grebowski said...

Oh my... a curse word? LOL!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I certainly hope you're going to get some soap and wash her mouth out, Mimi.

Ralph said...

You do 'Kick Arse' (I'm being polite here), but in your gracious southern manner. Patti cheating? Au contraire, she awarded this to the best. Quality over quantity, I say!

Leigh said...

(Curtseying) Quenn Mimi,
I came upon the guidance of my fran...I mean friend (I say fran on the island)Jenn that lady that keeps dust bunnies happy.
I am most impressed with your blog. Such a delightful one in its own. I will be stopping back by, if that is ok? And I am also going to add you to by blog will be most impressive when you show up as a fran on meet my frns on tuesday. Wow. A queen. Why, I nevah!

Thank you.

Charles Gramlich said...

I say it's the stocks for her. We cannot let this go unpunished. I've got some rotten tomatoes around here somewhere.

Patti said...

Mimi, Mimi, Mimi, I don't know what to say, but whatever I am about to write here you can bet it will be succinct.

You are funny. Your commenters aren't so much.

Punishment?? Washing mouth out with soap??? The stocks???

Patti pilloried does have a nice alliterative ring to it though.

Thanks for making me laugh, Your Highness.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jennifer Dust Bunny Queen - A mimosa sounds great but what is it? I once climbed a mimosa tree (another Southernism) but that's another story...

Linda - The Hot S**T Blogger? Queen is going to faint. lol

Ciara - Curse away, dear. It's your blog and your world and sometimes it just feels good to let one fly. Did I say that?

Lois - I know! That Patti is something else.

Jean-luc - That is an excellent idea! I'll get some now. My mother actually did that to me once.....yuk.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ralph - Indeed she did. I hope she takes this post well....

Leigh - You may get up now dear and thanks for the curtsey (did you see that people?! She knows what to do when visiting royalty) are welcome anytime and I shall promptly visit your blog space. Love your pic!

Charles - Poor Patti. She just did a post on tomatoes too. Go see if you borrow some from her for her punishment. Or better yet, just ask for a sandwich.
I run a peaceful kindgom here ya know. You're funny.

Patti The Princess The Queen of Succinctness - Pilloried or not you have a great sense of humor. Thanks for being gracious and putting up with my ribbing you a bit. And thank you for the nice award. I have already displayed it in my sidebar.

Patti said...

You don't know what a mimosa is??

Your Majesty! That is a shock.

Mimi Lenox said...

Patti - Google tells me a mimosa is a cocktail.

"A Mimosa is a cocktail-like drink composed of three parts champagne or other sparkling wine and two parts thoroughly chilled orange juice. It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute with a morning brunch or to guests at weddings."

So that's what I was drinking??!It wasn't orange juice??!

No wonder I fell out of the tree.

Patti said...

No wonder is right. They are deceptively easy to drink.

I love drinking out of tall champagne flutes. It's so royal.

Trée said...

Mimi, thanks for the kind words. I went to your profile and saw a bazillion blogs. :-D

Is this your main squeeze or should I look elsewhere? :-)

Mimi Lenox said...

Tree - I appreciate the visit very much. This is my main blog but please do check out anything you desire (I would start with the Peace Globe gallery if I were you since you are into images).

I'm a busy blogger...too busy at times....but LOVE blogging. You have an awesome concept and smart writing. I will read more of your work!

Travis said...

Look at the Queen...she's kicking a$$ and taking names! HA!

Linda said...

Oh my goodness! Are you seriously going to tolerate Travis calling you an a$$ kicker and not throw him in the dungeon until he apologizes?? I mean, seriously, it's just downright improper to call a Queen such a thing. Doesn't he know that you have minions to do the a$$ kicking for you so that you won't dirty your delicate feet?

Men! And wolves!

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - That seriously cracked me up. I, Mimi Queen of Memes, kicking A** and taking names! Oh the shame but hey! Linda's right.
Show some respect or it's the dungeon for you.

Gee, that was fun. I threw Travis in the dungeon. But I adore Trav (said the Queen meekly) and I don't think I can really get mean. What shall I do?

I must now hire some first rate a$$-kickers.

Mimi Lenox said...

Duchess - You are so correct. What was I thinking?! See above comment to Travis - who should be shaking in his wolf boots by now!

Travis said...

Nana nana boo boo!

Any self-respecting Queen can certainly step up and plant her royal foot squarely on an impertinant backside. See Queen Elizabeth I, who was quite the a$$ kicker in her day.

Oh sure, you can hire a Sir Walter Raleigh or Sir Francis Drake or something. But isn't it more satisfying to do the kicking yourself?
