Super Sweet Blogging Award!

My Dudes, the Gorgeously-Maned and Überly-Talented L.G. Keltner of Writing Off the Edge gifted me with the Super Sweet Blogging Award at the start of November, and it's only now that I've been able to catch up to doing my duty by it. Part of the reason for the delay was my lack of functioning Interwebs at home (until now—I gots me some FiOS, folks!). Another excuse reason is that I was focused on my Resurrection Blogfest stuffs. And finally, I'm just lazy as sin, so there you are.

Anyway, here's what this involves: I have to answer a few basic questions, all about sweets, then pass it on to other deserving bloggers.  Allons-y...

Cookies or Cake?
Red Velvet Cake.

Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate, of course.

What is your favorite sweet treat?
Häagen-Dazs Rocky Road Ice Cream.

When do you crave sweet things most?
Haha...always. Evenings, really. The average individual may desire a nightcap. Pour me a shot of brownie, instead. (OK, or Baileys and/or Godiva chocolate liqueur.)

If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?
Uh...Death by Chocolate? (My recipe for it is killer.) (Not literally.) (Just sayin'.)

And now, to tag some folks:

Juli @ Surviving Boys

Tracy @ Pull Up a Toadstool

All right, damn it; now I've gotta have me some Oreo Coconut Fudge Cream cookies.


  1. Coconut . . .Oreo . . .fudge . . .I must have it!

    1. Girl, open the package and the hold it under your nose and inhale slowly, but deeply through your nose. You should probably do this after you've got the kids in for the night and your husband's home and not otherwise engaged in anything. Ahem. ;-

  2. Red Velvet cake and chocolate, we are sisters I swear. LOL My fave cookie is the Girl Scout Thin Mints. they magically disappear each time I open a package and reappear on my hips and gut. It's like I inhale them under a spell or something.

    Congrats on the award and all the people you tagged. You all make this blogosphere rock.

    1. Picture it: crushed frozen Thin Mints sprinkled over a Hot Fudge Sundae!!!!! ::swoons::

  3. Love all the chocolate answers, although I've never managed to find a really good chocolate liqueur - just have to keep searching I guess *hic* :-)

  4. Awww thanks so much for the award!! Aren't you 'sweet'!!!! ;D

  5. Thank you! :) I was going to diet today, now I'm feeling like some Rocky Road - and it's only 9:30 in the morning. Not good. Maybe a reward if I go to the gym?

    1. If you're a regular gym-goer, then you can totally afford the Rocky Road. :-)

  6. I'm supposed to try and lose weight. I've got all kinds of obesity-related diseases that could potentially cause problems if I don't get them under control. The short list 1) I could develop type II diabetes, 2) I've been put on high blood pressure medicine, 3) I need to control my gout :/

    So I'll just sit back and eat carrots and watch you have fun with the red velvet cake.

    1. Dude, I'm sorry. If it makes you feel any better, the best muthafuckin place to get Red Velvet cake (Cake Man Raven, Brooklyn) has recently closed, though I only just the other day found out about it. Seriously, my heart squeezed from the shock of it. :'-(

  7. Congratulations on your blog award! I love chocolate, plain and simple. If I don't close my day with some sort of sweet, it wasn't a day worth having. ;-p

    Thanks for your questions on the A-to-Z co-host questionnaire!

    1. Yeah, that's my idea of a nightcap as well! Hope at least one of the questions actually works! :-)

  8. YEAH!!!

    1. Can I have cookies AND cake?
    2. Chocolate
    3. Dove's Unconditional Chocolate ice cream (sadly, getting harder and harder to find... and once I do find it, harder and harder to get home without eating along the way.
    4. When the kids are stressing me out. So, about every 20 minutes.
    5. Juli Bean. :)

    1. 1. Why stop there, when you can add PIE?
      2. You're a gal after me own heart.
      3. Never had 'em. I feel a mission coming on...
      4. I remember those days (though I had only one, he's a Gemini, so it felt like more).
      5. Aw, that's cute!

  9. Thanks Mina! I'll officially take the award least to answer the questions. You're awesome. :)

  10. Replies
    1. If I only had a nickel for every time I've heard that...I'd be further in debt. ;-)

  11. Congrats Mina on getting such a *SAAAweet* award. Ok, I know that was bad...and now I'm craving chocolate as if it's almost the end of the world...oh, right.....(;

    and thanks for passing the sweetness my way. :P


C'mon, post a comment. All the cool kids do.
