I Smile Grimace at Style

Making its appearance fashionably late is...

Ha. Me? Stylish? I think you got the wrong person, Syida. I'm assuming you didn't see my last post about my hatred for shopping (yes, this includes clothes shopping). But I'll accept the award, anyway. Thank you.

You know who totally deserves this award is my cat, Kudos. She craves this kind of attention. She lives for style. She loves playing dress-up (well, not that she has a choice...). It just makes her feel purrty.

Kudos graciously accepts her award.

Will you accept?


If you so choose to accept this award, there are rules that come along with it (because nothing worth having comes easy):

1) Thank with all your heart and link back to the blogger that generously awarded this to you
2) Share with the whole Internet world 7 random facts about yourself
3) Award some great bloggers

I GUESS I better start telling you about myself before this award is swept away from me right under my nose. Here goes:

My Facts

1. Do you know how a completely otherwise delicious cookie or brownie can be ruined? Just add nuts.
2. I am against dressing your dog or cat up in human-like outfits. Unless it's Halloween or something, then it's completely normal...
3. I contradict myself.
4. My ringtone for phone calls is currently "The Breakfast Machine" song from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. For texts, it's the Seinfeld theme song.
5. I was with my family vacationing in New York City--even stayed in a hotel within the Twin Towers--two weeks before September 11. Two weeks!
6. San Francisco is my favorite city. I'll probably end up writing a post about all the reasons why I love SF, so I won't explain here.
7. My "favorite" number is 13.

Well, I think I've overstayed my welcome with this particular award, so I'm making my fashionable exit (uh, you totally didn't just see me trip right then...).


  1. Shannon, your cat, Kudos, totally deserves an award. That is one swanky kitty! My ringtone is a made-up song called "I'm About To Whip Somebody's Ass" and my text tone is something annoying as hell that I'm gonna change. Eventually. And #1? I couldn't agree more! #5? Omg, freaky!

  2. I like Kudos' fashion sense, especially the Hello Kitty earrings.

  3. Dude, what you did to that cat is SO wrong.

    ... and NOW I'm gonna have to Google "The Breakfast Machine" song from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure just to see what it sounds like! Geez!!!

  4. That picture of your cat is HILARIOUS! Thank you for thinking of me- you're too sweet!

  5. I Love the cast and the award. I came over from the hop and I am following you on GFC now.

  6. Aww, this is sweet! Thank you so much!
    Your kitty looks adorable in that photo! What a good sport! ha.

  7. wow! u were in a hotel within the twin towers two weeks b4 september 11?!!.. i bet that changed our life sumhw knowing hw close you were to sumn as tragic as that
    i also contradict myself ALOT,lol
    haha..i think it's cute to dress up animals..:p

  8. Congrats! Wow ur cat definitely deserves d award! seriously, how did u evn came up wid get up! its hillarious!

  9. Congrats! And I hate nuts too. And the cat thing is cute. *Smiles*

  10. Super lovely blog you have here!



  11. Congrats on the award! You are most definitely stylish! I didn't always like nuts in my cookies, but I do (to an extent) now. Depends on the cookie.

    And that is terrifying that you were two weeks away from something that devastating. I'm glad you weren't involved in the tragedy. I would miss your blog.

  12. Ms. Blase, I know. I hope PETA doesn't see this this.

    Nabo, are you ready for a long explanation as to how I came up with the picture? Buckle up. My thought process went like this...

    Stylish award? I'm not stylish (in terms of clothing, I know it's talking about a writing style...). Then I wanted to put a picture up of me when I had to snow plow the huge long driveway we have. I was wearing PJ pants, a huge jacket, a beanie that looks like a tiger's head, mismatched socks, and everything in between. But THEN I realized the picture wasn't yet transferred onto my computer, and I was too lazy to transfer it. Then I was thinkin' of putting my grandma's picture up to show her style (or lack thereof), but I didn't want to put a picture of her that's already in another post. I was stuck...for five seconds. Then I remembered I had a picture of my cat, from 3 years ago, decorated with Christmas bows and ribbon. I (obviously) went with that. Then I started thinking how I could make it look like she has style. Just add earrings and rings. And...voila. Now there's a weird/cute cat with style on the internet.

  13. That's funny about the L.O.L. comment. Plus, I just noticed your (new?) profile picture. The cat and the jeans thing is hilarious. Thought I'd let you know.

  14. Well, you won an award, so I'm gonna follow and see what's up.

  15. I think this award implies that your blog, and not necessarily you yourself, is stylish. I agree that it is!

  16. That's awesome! The fact that you have PEE WEE as your ring tone is too good. Thank you for the award....I have an awards page on my site and will definitely put you there.

  17. I'll accept! Awesome! Making a post now! :)

  18. Congratulations on the award. I love all of your answers...2 weeks before yikes...anyway I was just stopping in to say hello and to wish you a happy weekend:)

  19. I love these things... you always get to learn such weird things about people! So glad you played along! The SF area is just THE best :)

  20. Congrats on your award, love the picture of the kitty:)

  21. I came across your blog through 20sb, and a while later, I've read every single post you've written. Annnnnd, I love it! It's not the usual type of blog I'd enjoy, but now I'm following and I can't wait to read more!


  22. Pink Hibiscus, I can't believe you've read EVERY single post on here! That's insane. That's, like, the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me. :)

  23. I loathe shopping as well! Kudos is a perfect name for a cat! And you are totally awesome!

  24. I also hate to shop. And I don't care much about shoes either. I came here via the Weekend Blog Hop and I'm glad I did. You brought a welcome smile to my day.

  25. I love shopping, but only at thrift stores or for my daughter, haha. Congrats. =]

    See, I like nuts in brownies and cookies and stuff. I HATE it when there's fruit in them though. Like raisins, craisins and other nasty dried pieces of chewy tang they can shuv in a cookie? Makes me sick.

    I've only been to San Fransisco once in my life, and I was only 5 or so, so I barely remember it. I'm long overdue for a visit, you know?

    I want to end this saying that your cat is amazing! I think I might have the same earrings somewhere around here...

  26. So I can just pretend I never saw this, right?

  27. Thanks for visiting my site. This blog is so cute!! I love animal crackers, and I like the idea that you are a girl that likes animal crackers:)

  28. Congratulations on your award xxx

  29. Congratulations on this award! Nice work.

    I totally agree, nuts in brownies is a sin.

  30. wow that cat!!! congrats on being so stylish. I am having a hard time getting into great gatsby. do you have any other book suggestions?

  31. Not only are you stylish you are so funny and clever. Your cat looks so adorable, love it. But, we disagree on brownies but it's ok we can still be friends. hehehe.

    I am now your newest follower.

    Write it in Lipstick

  35. Thanks for participating in my Silly Saturday Photo Caption Contest today! I really loved your caption so "paws crossed" that you will be the lucky winner!
    I think you and I are "two peas in a pod" because I totally love the music from Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I've got to get that ring tone asap! Thanks for the reminder!
    Good job at winning the Stylish Blogger Award!
