Aw, shucks.

8 Mar

Many MANY thanks to Farah for nominating us for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. We think she’s pretty great, too, and follow her exploits as a well-travelled twenty-something student figuring out life with the avidity of two wannabe well-traveled twenty-something corporate drones. She makes us laugh and think in equal measure, so we’re very honored to be her blog friend!

Here are the guidelines for responding to the Very Inspiring Blogger Award:
1) Display award logo on your blog. (Check.)
2) Link back to the person who nominated you. (Double-check.)
3) State 7 things about yourself. (See below: Things.)
4) Nominate 15 Bloggers for this award. (Bites nails.)
5) Notify those bloggers. (Donezo.)


  1. We are skeptical about the new Oz movie and unabashedly hate Wicked because: Judy. (Also because: integrity of political allegories.)
  2. We vehemently disagree on TV, to the point of regular arguments. (Polly enjoys nothing more than wasting a Sunday with Patti Stanger, aka the Millionaire Matchmaker while Penny’s Sundays are incomplete without an NCIS marathon (thank the gods for USA Network and don’t get us started on Penny’s resentment towards SVU weekends and Polly’s borderline obsession with the sexy detective pair) .((STABLER AND BENSON 4EVER.)))
  3. We’re embarrassed we’re still watching Pretty Little Liars (seriously, A, get a (different) hobby) but Ezra Fitz is just too pretty to erase from our DVRs.
  4. We both have a thing for DIY and Mason jars. Things. Real things. This isn’t like; this is like-like.
  5. We’ve been known to expertly cut rugs on the dancefloor. (Polly more successfully than the now-injured Penny whose knees will never be the same following her attempt at recreating Bruce Springsteen’s Super Bowl halftime show.)
  6. Neither Penny nor Polly plans to donate money to their alma mater unless said money is in the form of a rigorously controlled endowment for the arts that bulldozes the lacrosse field/locker rooms and those *!@&$*#@% plasma tvs.
  7. Nothing, repeat NOTHING, is better than that moment when we get home from work and free our boobs from boob jail. (Respectively. In different states. This isn’t a joint effort.)

Since we are mostly concerned with the aforementioned release from boob jail upon returning home from work, our involvement with the blogging community on WordPress is sadly lacking, and we can’t – even between the two of us! – come up with 15 nominees. That said, here is our (highly selective) group of nominees:

Sarah at highfiverson (along with Ryan at CanIGetUrNumber), we’re almost afraid of how much we want to be your friends, even though we’ve never met you. Mostly Penny and Circe over-identify with Sarah’s military-men woes. Polly totally understands her romantic lobsterdates. And Ryan? The Binary Scale has opened our eyes; and, yes, we wrench.

Patrick Latter, if we didn’t hate the cold so much your photography would almost make us interested in hiking through Canada. We’re saving up for some prints once our friends stop getting married and our entire disposable incomes don’t have to go to bridal showers and wedding plane tickets. (Or, Circe caves and lets me get that awesome Gorilla for our living room. I’m working on it. – Penny)

Liz at One Awkward Year, for making us feel better every day about our neuroses. For reasons she can’t explain, Polly also goes crazy when people don’t clear the microwave timer.

Farah, we’re gonna have to ping you back on this one because we both read your blog every time there’s a new post. Every. Single. Time. That one about adulthood and settling and being brave? We talk about those things allllll the time (and you say it so well!). We think you should definitely keep writing to procrastinate studying.
