If It Walks Like a Duck...

I heard voices in my bathroom this morning.

At first, I thought it was the shower zombies. (What? You don’t have shower zombies? Come on…you mean to tell me that you don’t have near empty bottles of shampoo and body wash just waiting to launch a full-on assault on your foot while you are blissfully enjoying your morning shower??)

Upon further investigation, I saw Miss Rubber Duckie Dawn had a guest. They were talking in low voices. I could also see that Miss Rubber Duckie Dawn was sporting a new look. Hmmm….

"I appreciate you coming over on such short notice, Zen Duck. She’s just so edgy lately. She was blessed with some really lovely bloggy awards that she hasn’t posted. How rude of her! And she has won some giveaways that she hasn’t acknowledged. She loves that Eco Baby Shampoo that she won from Kristen at La Dolce Vita. That creepy PMS lady is gone so I really don’t know what her problem is."

Zen Duck looked at her thoughtfully. “Perhaps she needs reminding of an attitude of gratitude or a nice massage.”

(While I can appreciate constructive criticism, I just can’t get past Zen Duck’s “man” boobs! Freaky!!!)

“Agreed,” said Rubber Duckie Dawn. “I know just the ducks for the job.” She gave a few quacks and along came the reinforcements.

(WHAT?! What are Tween Caveboy Duckie and Miss Kitty Duckie doing here? I didn’t know for sure what was coming next…an intervention or an exorcism, but I knew that I wasn’t sticking around to find out! The nerve of those little quackers!)

I started to leave when I heard Tween Caveboy Duckie formulating a diabolical plan with the shower zombies to teach me a lesson. That does it! I scooped up all the shower zombies and promptly tossed them in the trash. You should have heard them threatening me! Idiots! I’m bigger than they are…they didn’t stand a chance.

The little row of duckies had grown silent. “Fine! I know I’ve been a grump-a-frump lately! I know I need a shower! I know the laundry volcano is going to erupt at any moment!” I sighed and sat down next to the tub. “You’re right, Man Boobs Zen Duck . I need to get my attitude of gratitude on.”

My sweet bloggy friends, please forgive my rudeness!

I am grateful for my very sweet bloggy friend, The Blonde Duck ,

who graciously awarded me with the Triple Award! That is so cool!! Her blog, A Duck in Her Pond, is filled with fabulous stories, recipes and pies…delicious, mouth-watering pies…and you have to meet Queen Bitty and Bear! Thank you, Blonde Duck!

Also, the amazing Amy from The Undomestic Army Wife shared the Kreativ Blog Award with me! Thank you, Amy! She has fantastic decorating ideas over there and she’s a wonderful gal! She also has some great blog layouts for you to use too! Go on over and say hi!

And Rae Anne from Critical Mass tagged me for a "7 things you may not know about me" meme. Rae Anne, I promise I will do this soon!! Her blog is a fun fest!

heehee. love the ducks
Cute ducks, cute post. I am pretty bad at awards too. I never know who to give them to because there are so many blog I enjoy. Then I pick one and they already have the award. I have not done any of mine yet. I feel really bad about it. But.............. congratulations on your awards! Have a wonderful day.
Me said…
Congrats on the awards! You are more than deserving.

I do have to say..I'm a little concerned. About You. You have zombies and talking ducks. Not only are they talking ducks, but ducks that morph. Whats in the water in your parts? Have you been playing with the creepy crawler creatures you live with?

P.S. I don't really think you are crazy. I do have to ask..what's the story behind the ducks? Inquiring minds want to know.

I have had zombies for years, but I didn't know what was going on.

I am a terrible blog friend as well, I have so many I need to get caught up on, but never find the time.

Congrats to you!

Man...if there were that many things living in my shower....I'd never shower again! I'd just live out the rest of my days as "that stinky lady". I'm glad the only thing that lives in my tub is stray dog hair!
Aunt OOOOO said…

Hilarious post! Love the duckies! :) Congrats on your awards - I'm so far behind in doing my thanks and acknowledgments, too - ACK! I'm the same way you are - there are so many blogs I enjoy I have a hard time passing the wonderful awards on to just a few... :)
Tracy said…
And this, my friend, is why I adore you!!!

Jenners said…
The more I read your blog, the more I want to start a collection of little ducks. They are so funny!

And I'm the WORST at acknowledging awards. I think I have some from DECEMBER that I haven't done anything about. I'm going to rectify that this week though!

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   

Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)
