Apparently, I’m Now “It”!

Last Updated on: April 24th, 2016

I have been tagged. So now I am “it”, whatever that means. I guess I’m “all that, and a bag of chips”! (Do any of you recognize this saying?) 🙂

Felicia tagged me, and from what I can see, this is kind of like an award. I’m getting a bit tired of these awards, to be honest with you, even though they provide a good way to meet other bloggers. However, I have never seen Felicia before, nor have I read any of her posts, and I am pretty sure she has never read any of mine.

So, for this game, I’m making a mockery of things. I’ll answer her questions, but I’m not going to tag any others. I don’t want to tick them off! I hope you find my answers hilarious!

I’m also beginning to understand why some bloggers don’t “do” these memes. I think this may be my last one. Who knows? I’ll give Felicia her link, and publish this post, but I’m honestly starting to understand why other bloggers don’t accept them. They are time-consuming and are a lot of extra work. My apologies to those who think that I’m being ungrateful but, really, I’ve accepted The Liebster Award, then four more awards in this post, then the Shine On Award, and then the Liebster Award again. It’s kind of ironic, too, that my first Liebster Award appears on the first page of a search for information about this award – but that’s what I was hoping for when I wrote the post. I didn’t include the words “official rules” in it for nothing!

So, I think I just may be done with these – at least for a while, anyway. Sorry! 🙁

I am now going to make a bit of a mockery out of this one. I’m in a mood. What can I say? You might even find my answers a bit humorous. Who knows?If you feel like a laugh, then read it. Just realize that this is “not really the true me”. I’m being satirical, and – I’ll admit it – a bit mean! More than a bit, actually;this is an in-your-face post.

Here we go. Ready?

I have been tagged, and, apparently, I’m now “it”.

I’m also about to be brutal. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

RULES:

Rule 1: Post the rules

Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger asked you, then make 11 new ones.

Rule 3: Tag 11 people [ or how many you feel like ] and link them to your post

Rule 4: Let them know that you tagged them

So, here are the questions that I’ve been asked, with my super-sarcastic responses:

1. What can you talk about forever?

My Answer:

Myself. Duh.

2. What do you find yourself thinking about, constantly?

My Answer:

Myself. Duh.

3. Why did you start blogging?

My Answer:

To talk about myself. Duh.

4. If and how has your reason for blogging changed?

My Answer:

It hasn’t. Why would I want to talk about something other than myself? Duh.

5. What are 10 words describing you?

My Answer:

Only ten? C’mon. Give me a challenge! Ask me for a hundred!

Hmm. Sarcastic, funny, helpul, friendly, sweet, caring, kind, smart, pretty, and … are you ready … vain. Duh.

6. What are the things you love the most?

My Answer:

Duh. What do you think? Myself! Seriously though, I love reading and writing, watching TV, spending time with my family, and eating.

7. Who are the people that you love the most?

My Answer:

My parents and my son. Oh, and other bloggers online! (Especially those who have praised me!)

8. Did or do you like school? Why or why not?

My Answer:

Yes, because I was good at it. But, no, too, because it was boring.

9. Who influenced you the most to be the person you are today?

My Answer:

My parents and my rapist. Shocked? Don’t be.

10. What do you strive to be in the future (financially, physically, spiritually, etc.)?

My Answer:

Rich and famous. Duh. Oh, and maybe someone who’s not so egotistical! Ha!

11. What do you like to blog about most?

My Answer:

Do you really need to ask? Duh. What do you think?

My Questions for the people I am NOT going to tag. (They are sarcastic in nature, too!)

1. What do you think of these stupid games?

2. Are you as self-centered as I am?

3. Why?

4. Why not?

5. Am I your idol?

6. Do you love me?

7. What’s your problem?

8. Can you think of better questions to ask?

9. Do you wish you could be as sarcastic as me?

10. Am I your idol yet?

11. What would it take for me to become your idol?

By the way, folks, I am not tagging anyone. Aren’t you glad?

I don’t really see the point, other than to get a link to my blog. However, if you want to play, you have my full permission. Just link back to this post! That’s all I ask.

Yup, I’m getting that egotistical in my “old” age. I’m seven months old already, and I have other bloggers linking to my blog posts, so, yeah, I think I have reason to be this way!

I also think that all the praise I have received lately has gone to my head! Oh-oh. I’m in trouble now…

…Okay, rant complete. I’m tired of being “it”.

Join me back to our regularly scheduled programming in a few days. I think I will have recovered by then, and will be back with the continuation of the story I began telling the other day, which was My True Story About How I Nearly Died.

I apologize once again for this post. But, you have to admit, it has its funny moments, doesn’t it?

Or have I alienated a bunch of my fabulous new readers already? I hope not. I swear, this is a one-time thing. I think.

Dare I even ask for comments? I think I’m about to be trashed… No hate mail, please! 😉

On second thought, bring it on!

    Hey Lorraine, loved the post and I feel just like you about the awards. Sorry, I know you gave me one also and like everyone else has said, it’s nice, but SO much work. Who has time for that? The first one I received was The Sweetest Award and I never did to any of the stuff for that one or any of the others except say thank you to the person who gave it to me.

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Yes, they can be a lot of work, and very time-consuming. I think there is value in some awards, since you get to learn about more blogs and maybe connect with the bloggers, but this one was a bit silly!

      Good to know that I’m “it”, though! 😛

      Psst. Tag, you’re it! LOL

    Loved it. I was nominated several different times and felt guilty because I didn’t accept and when I saw all the questions and the work I just ignored it.. Personally I thought to myself, what is the point. I did feel good that several people enjoyed my blog, because God knows I can’t write for poop

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Being nominated is nice, being read is great, and being complimented is awesome! If someone reads what you’ve written and nominates you, then they are paying you a compliment. However, if you’ve never heard of the nominator before, it’s kind of stupid, really, to be nominated when all they have read is maybe one post.

      As for feeling guilty, don’t! Negativity in any shape or form is not healthy!

      Don’t underestimate yourself, either, Arleen. 🙂

      I’m glad you liked this. So far, I haven’t received any hate mail – just positive responses!

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      I did that with the one post I wrote – the one that mentioned that I was the recipient of four awards.

      I think getting one or two is okay, but after that, things get out of hand. For a while, it seemed like all I was doing was getting them. Not that I’m complaining about the recognition, but, really, how many do I need? 🙂

      Thanks for your comment!

      • I don’t mind them so much. That’s why I batch them. I have one that i need to do with about seven awards. I use them as a marketing tool. Check out my awards page to see. I also show case them when I get an inquiry form a PR firm, media outlet or ad agency. Hope this helps.

        • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

          That’s a good strategy, Susuan. I know you don’t really mind getting them – and neither do I, really – but I felt like I had to get a few things off my chest with this post!

          I know there are many more “awards” out there for which I have not been nominated, and the truth is, if I were to “get” them, I’d do the batching thing again, especially if they all happened within a week or two of one another!

          Just curious, how do you use them as a marketing tool?

  3. says

    Oh, i am a bit relieved… that you will no longer accept blog awards and nominate others, i mean. Don’t get me wrong – i appreciate bloggers support very much (including these blogger awards stuff and those YOU sent my way – yey!) but it does take up a lot of time and after the second one, there isn’t really anything new to add to the discussion… and bloggers just keep on nominating you LOL

    so, again – relieved (sigh) – i think with this post you could qualify as what youths call “haters” today LOL

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Hey, don’t hate the player, hate the game! LOL

      Thanks, and sorry if I put you through hell with my nominations. 😉

  4. I was honored the first time, but it didn’t take me long to see these awards are silly and a waste of time. I know that sounds terrible, but I don’t have time for silly games and would rather be writing real posts than what these awards require.

  5. Had a good chuckle Lorraine – it’s like those darn chain letters we used to have at school – but what a good way to end your award season – being the IT girl is quite an achievement hey 😉

  6. Duh! Hah! Bring it on? Oh, wait a minute. I think I’m on the wrong blog. Sorry, must stand in front of the mirror, and tag myself. How much do I love me! Can’t count the ways. You are one funny lady. Oh, yeah. Love your post. Blessings.
