I got a new shiny thing!

I called in sick today,because as my youngest used to say,"I have a headache in my stomach"..


Actually,I have an ulcer that flares up from time to time,usually at night,and it's hard to try and work on zero hours sleep..Believe it or not,I've been dealing with this since I was 8 years old...I know,..what the hell is an 8 year old doing with an ulcer?..Well I've always been strung a little too tight,don't ya know.
But enough about me..

WAIT!..There's more about me.


Danielle,over at Modern Musings,has granted me the sparkly, "You make me Smile" award.


Here's what she had to say during the presentation;

"Sling,author of Sling's Domain is another blogger spreading cheer wherever he goes.His posts are humorous and thought provoking at the same time"..

See!...I told you I spread cheer!...dammit.
Comes now,the time to pass along this wonderful bit of recognition to my fellow bloglodites.There is no limit to the number of people that can be thus acknowledged.

There simply has got to be a better way to say,"Everyone on my blogroll deserves this award!",because that's just the truth..I'll personally give an award to the first person that comes up with a viable alternative..
In any case,I choose three..

Citymouse makes me smile because she has spirit,and attitude.
A big city child,slightly out of her element in a small town,she keeps true to herself!..She rocks the house!

More Cowbell makes me smile because she calls 'em like she sees 'em.
From home repair,to the not-so-subtle bigotry that somehow still exists in this world,if you fuck up,you can bet yer ass you'll get called on the carpet.

Finally,Middle Child makes me smile because she perseveres!
Having been handed more than a fair share of grief,she continues to soldier on.
She is,quite frankly,my hero.

I'm confident that these fine recipients will bestow this honor in their own way,to other deserving folk.

Have a great week kids!

Hey! You made me SOL! Smile out loud. And it was out loud, because I told the dogs. And what a great compliment ... thank you! Also, how do you know it's not an earache in your stomach? Hope it goes away.

It's so right that you got such a good award. Congratulations.

On the other hand, based entirely and exclusively on blog-data (which hasn't been proven to be any kind of reliable, not really) - it's almost impossible to imagine YOU with ulcer stuff.

Hmm. Isn't there some kind of remedy for that, now that we're in the modern age of high technology?

I'm giving you another award for todays' use of the word "bloglodites."

you not only make me smile, you make me laugh, think, ponder, mull things over and giggle...thanks..

Well it pretty much couldn't have happened to a nicer chap!
The, uh...the sparkly thing. Not the ulcer. Although, those tend to happen to nice folks, too. Seein' as all you nice folks are too nice to tell people to fuck off.

Wow, that is so cool - that you had an ulcer at 8, I mean. What a GREAT excuse to have to draw upon anytime you needed a sick day! Oh, okay...not really. I meant the award is so cool. And you DO make ME smile all the time, Sling. (See, I told everyone I wasn't funny, and this comment proves it.)

You sure always make me smile buddy..

Um, dude- Zantac? GERD friendly diet? Merely a suggestion..

Sorry about your ulcer, but congrats on the award.

Citymouse- You are so very welcome!
I've no doubt you would have received this award in short order,so it was my pleasure to pass it on to you.

Danielle- I.Love.Shiny.Things!
That I might leave someone with a smile is something that makes ME smile!..Thanks again.

Cowbelle- ..and I'll just bet "The Boys" smothered you in congratulatory hugs and kisses. :)
I've learned to live with headaches in my stomach,it's earaches in my tooth that drive my nuts!

booda baby- I don't know so much about what the internets say,..but I do know this!..
I was told way back when that I was probably born with it,and that it would most likely never heal.
It's probable that there have been great amounts of new ways discovered to avoid the infrequent episodes,but then,who would remind me to pay attention to what the hell I'm doing?

JP- I am so secretely proud of that little moniker..Remember,..you heard it here first!

Yellowdog G.- Aww shucks ma'am..
Don't...Stop. ;)

Hat- Are you kidding me??..Telling people to fuck off is how I keep these little aggravations down to a bare minimum..

gina- Well now you've given away my secret..How else do you think a grown man can call in sick with a tummy ache?..
..and I think you are funny!..Just look at the company you keep on my sidebar!..not exactly the mortician's union.

doralong- I just don't take any medicine for it.
For the first three years after the diagnosis,(which was hard to come by for an 8 year old..they simply weren't looking at that for a cause),I did the whole bland diet thing..
No fried foods.
No sodas.
TONS of Maalox.
..and milk.
Now I understand that they think milk is bad for an ulcer...Well I'm here to tell you that it's the first thing I reach for when it acts up..maybe it's the whole,"that's what mom gave me" type psychological remedy..but it always helps.
Thanks for smiling!

serena joy- The ulcer ain't nothin' but a thing SJ,..Really.
I mean,face it...It doesn't interfere enough with my debauchery to amount to much. :)

You are quite awesome you know....award or not.....I have to go now....I need to close my eyes and look at my eyelids. I see spots and I am worried it is measles.

 
At 8:06 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Rosie- :) <---- (smile)
Those spots before your eyes are "floaters"..Over time,the vitreous liquid in your eyes becomes more fluid,and those errant bits of accumulated debris are more free to move about.
They are harmless,and can just be ignored...or given names...
I call mine "Capricorn"..

 
At 11:57 PM , Blogger more cowbell said...

I have a few floaters. But don't say that around my dad ... he had a whole different for "floaters".

 
At 2:09 AM , Blogger Middle Child said...

Oh my goodness...an award. Thank you Sling! The last real award I won was when I was 12 and I got an award for being a "god sport" as the captain of my sports team after we lost Sports day so dismally... 1966. I won a book called "Robbery Under Arms" by Rolf Bolderwood and it was the only book I actually owned then...

Thank you so much...sob sob... I'd like to thank my mother and father, my cat Mandy Rice davis, my sisters all 4, oh but not the social worker one... the dog Thorn and ... how long have you got Sling ; ) ?

Great award, bad ulcer. Take it easy and unwind a bit.

 
At 8:28 AM , Blogger the rube said...

congratulations

you make me snicker more than smile.

 
At 9:47 AM , Blogger Monica said...

good choices sling. by the way, i'll see the headache in your stomach with the wocket in my pocket. no? not so good? maybe i'm not funny :)

 
At 11:02 AM , Blogger Lorraine said...

Congratulations, doll face.

 
At 2:03 PM , Blogger Sling said...

more cowbell- Was your dad a cop?
Because I'm familiar with that interperetation of "floaters".

middle child- You are very welcome MC!
I know that many people feel like I do.

kimberly ann- Thanks kid!..and I'll try to unwind..perhaps a grande burrito and quervo margarita?

Rube- I'll see your snicker,and raise you a chortle!

monica- Is that a wocket in your pocket,or are you just glad to see me?..Okay,..maybe none of us bat a thousand. ;)

lorraine- I love it when you call me dollface!..But then,I understand you've been throwing around "panties" over at Gina's house..I don't mean literally..I mean...Oh,this is going badly.. :P

 
At 3:47 PM , Blogger more cowbell said...

Actually, he was a cop. But I think his definition of floaters floats more toward the scatalogical than the law enforcement ...

 
At 4:18 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Cowbelle- Eww!..I was thinking more of bloated bodies found entangled in the weeds of lakes and waterways..

 
At 4:29 PM , Anonymous MN Fan said...

awesome award Sling, you deserve it! I drop into Sling World almost everyday...can't help myself, you ROCK the coolness factor!

 
At 10:16 PM , Blogger Sling said...

MN Fan- Welcome to my world!.. :)
Sorry about the mess.
