Feel me up Friday Awards: Blow Pops and Toe Nails

I don't know where my mind's been, but once again, Friday came from nowhere. I didn't even read...wait for it...wait...BLOGS yesterday. *Gasp* Maybe it's because I've been so focused on finding answers, I've yet to breathe. So, hold on a sec while I inhale.



Okay, thanks. I feel better now. Because of recent happenings that have left Candyland somewhat burned the eff out, I'm leaving this Friday feel up to a dear friend of mine, also known as the hubs. Be gentle with him, he likes to take things slow, and long walks on the beach. Buy him dinner first, or at least say you "thought" of buying him dinner so he doesn't feel violated. Without further adieu, Friday's facts presented by...Erik G.

Random Fact:  Some people have you from hello, Candyland had me at blow pop, tongue ring, mini skirt and trucker hat.  She was quite the minx or my Funcie Fox or my Muncie Maven as she would be so lovingly known.

Random Fact:  Candyland once ripped her entire big toe nail off on the bottom of a bathroom door at the Olive Garden.  It's proof that flip flops are not a good footwear choice regardless of how hot it is because you never know when a pesky door will be lurking around the corner.

OMG. That was fantastic! Have you been taking lessons? I think the hubs can tell! Mommy Daddy like. In honor of F Day this weekend, the winners of my Imma do Candyland Better than Candyland Contest! I had to divvy up prizes because a few of the entrants are overseas (therefor only eligible for the critique), so that's why it looks crazy. The plus? One extra winner. Aside from blog posts, the other winners were chosen at random. Feeling lucky?

Winner #1 of Query Critique
Creepy Query Girl who entered with:
An insane reenactment of Candyland. You won't know the dif. To be posted Monday.

Winner #2 of Query Critique and Lauren Oliver's "Before I Fall"
Anne Kenny who entered with:

Winner #3 of Query Critique

Kelly Polark who entered with:

Honorable Mention: Winner of secret surprise *evil laugh*

Congrats to all the winners! And thank you to Erik G. for filling in so admirably. (Though I could've done without the toenail story--yee-owch!)

Creepy Query Girl said...

* Creepy runs around screaming* I WON! I WOooooWOOOOOOOOON!!! Woot woot woot woot.*Grooves her thang* To the left. to the left. To the right. to the right. Now dip baby dip. Dip baby dip. *Inhales, exhales* Ok. Sorry. Just had to get that out of my system. Awesome contest! Your hubs did a great job filling in for you even thought the toenail thing grossed me out. I have a thing about feet. Anywhoo, your contests rock and THANKS!! I'm so stoked!

Matthew Rush said...

Congrats to all winners! I haven't had much time for reading and commenting this week either - barely had time to throw up short posts of my own - so it's understandable and you are forgiven, for now.

Awesome about you and your husband, sounds like a wonderful meeting.

Today's guest blogger is Faith Hough.

Jen said...

Even after you reminded me I still forgot to entire, oh Candyland forgive me! Sounds like you got some awesome winners on your hands!

Love your titles, love that Candyland had you at blow pop, always keeping it fun and fresh over here... wait... except for the toe nail thing, once I saw ripped off I was out, can't read the rest... make me gag... yuck...

ripped off, toe nail, olive garden, that's all. Ha-ha

Happy Friday!

Jaydee Morgan said...

Your hubby did a great job! No nicknames here but I'm terrified now because of your toenail happening. I love my flipflops - and although I'm not a huge toenail fan, I'd like to keep mine.

Congrats to your winners and congrats to you for holding a great contest. Have a good weekend!

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

Congrats to the winners! Hubs did a fine job there. Nice going!

Hmm, nick name. I got plenty from the past ... Wanna hear 'em all? Ok, they're a bit embarrassing, but here goes ...

Ca ca (my baby brother (half-brother) couldn't pronounce my name properly so just said the last bit - twice)

bisexual nazi girl (I was dating a girl in high school and I had a shaved head)

B1 and B2 (well they were directed at my breasts, not me)

juicy (instead of Jessy, my mum's idea of cute, without realising the sexual connotation)

Idi (this is my current name, from my partner, short for idiot - HA!)

Dawn said...

Yay for all the winners! And good job by your husband. I wonder what my hubby would have written...*shudders*

My Mom called me Alice when I was a kid - her little dreamer. Sometimes, when she's feeling sentimental, she still calls me that.

Solvang Sherrie said...

Your hubby is a sweetie :)
My hubby calls me Goose which I still haven't warmed up to after twenty years together...

Renae said...

Congrats to the winners! What a great contest. Elana is fabulous!
You hubs did a great job...loved it!
No nicknames here unless you count my daughter calling me Nae when she really wants to get my attention.

Tahereh said...

woo hoo! congrats to all he winners!! :D

and HUBS did a great job filling in!


Jo Schaffer said...

Yay to the weiners. (;



I have a ton. But probably the funniest was one a Scottish guy I was always making out with in college gave me-- "Evil Seductress". Hm. Even his roomies called me that. Blush. That's right. Rarrr.

Janet Johnson said...

Congrats to all the winners!

My husband calls me "Beautiful." *blush* I love it.

JustineDell said...

Youch! For the toenail. Tell me, do you think that hurts as bad as form rejection to a full?

Congrats to the winners! I <3 Lenny!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Congrats to all the winners and kudos to the hubs. I wonder if I can get mine to make a guest post?!?

Maybe not. I'd be afraid of what he would write ...

Kelly Breakey said...

I have been remiss in my blog reading this week too! On an aside, I think Eric G. should sub more often. I like that he dishes the dirt on you.

Kelly said...

Hope your hubs is having a great Father's DAy!
