Lill: Despite all of Jillian’s *sighing*, the blogosphere continues to show us the love – I suspect this is due to the enthusiasm I project in embracing the world around me.
Jill: *Rolls eyes* Oh yeah, an award-winning Miss Congeniality…
Lill: Hmph, well I am award-winning.
Jill: Yes Lillian, and we both want to give thanks and shout outs to the lovelies that have nominated us for three new awards.
Lill: Our favourite Raving Mad Scientists, Annie and Nikki, have graciously nominated us for the Versatile Blogger Award. They’re clever and quick (no surprise in being smarties) and are now our go-to place for entertainment reviews. Cheers ladies – if ever we require a clinical pathologist you’ll be our first call :-D
Jill: We also need to post a plus-sized thank you to Cakes McCain and her Pasta For One – a saucy bella braving the dating world in the land of pasta, pervs and blue Fiats. We humbly thank Cakes for nominating us for the T.M.I. Blog Award (we think it was the turtle poop that got this one), and the Creative Chaos Award. The former is an award honouring those blogs that discuss everything in detail and do it well. These bloggers aren’t afraid to discuss their most awkward, embarrassing and intimate experiences with honesty, humor and little to no filter. It was designed by Lauren at Viciously Sweet and Teri at The Narcissists Blog. The latter is an award for those who think outside the norm, the designer from I’m not just weird. Good lord that was a mouthful…
Lill: Moving on! The requirements for all three, though varied, do share a few similarities – mostly around describing quirks, quarks and embarrassing moments and habits the outside world is not yet privy to. We’ve done our best to answer everything asked below. For the official what’s-what check out the links we’ve embedded on each.
Share 3 things you may not know about us:
1. We live in the land of bagged milk, Beaver Tails (an actual dessert) and Shania Twain and suggest trying all three together.
2. Lill owns a skateboard but rarely skates, and Jill has a violin but never plays.
3. Lillian coded a computer game about mushroom cultivation in university and Jillian met Mr. Dressup when she was 4.
Share an awkward, embarrassing and intimate story:
Jill: I feel like this is all we do…
Lill: *Snigger* What about the time I caught you rubbing coffee grounds on your ass?
Jill: …You bitch…I saw it on Rachael Ray, it’s supposed to reduce cellulite.
Lill: Judging by the $300 you spent on Spanx last week I guess it wasn’t as effective as intended…
Tell 3 completely weird things about your habits. If you claim to have no weird habits, you’re lying and we’ll have to send an investigative team for further analysis:
Jill: LILLIAN SPIES ON OUR HOT NEIGHBOUR DOWN THE HALL EVEN THOUGH HE’S MARRIED!!
Lill: …Gee Jill, glad you’re being so mature about this…
Jill: You talked about my cellulite, what the hell did you expect?
Lill: Jillian sprays Febreze in her room every time she farts.
Jill: …I can’t…I just…it’s not…*sigh*
Lill: I eat artichoke hearts…like three times a week…it might be a problem. There done.
Tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?”:
Jill: We’re BFFs; we embrace hos before bros; we celebrate the good stuff, drink and/or shop away the bad and always together; and we try to live in the present, even if vegetating on the sofa in front of a Housewives marathon isn’t really living.
You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cell phone service, no Walmart (I know, GASP, right?), and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your pants and why?
Lill: Wait, we need to be wearing pants!?
Jill: *Sigh* Me in black skinny’s (what else?) and Lill in Gap low rise blue denim (she has fabulous hips).
Lill: I ate the candy bar…
Jill: I didn’t want it anyways…can you use that sibling psychic connection to call Alfie to come and fix the car?
Lill: No, my mind powers are tired from blitzing blue Fiats for Cakes.
Nominate 5 other blogs:
Jill: Seeing as we’re still newbies and just starting to see and be seen, we’re going to do a bit more circulating and schmoozing before any new shout outs, so stay tuned :-)
Lill: Once again, muchas gracias to these fantabulous ladies for the nominations, and for the ongoing encouragement and inspiration from our supporters! You are the bees knees (with no cellulite).
