Zombie Chickens... oh my goodness!

Now admit it.. You were expecting some sort of scary, sordid, spine-tingling tale about walking, "undead" chickens weren't you?

Or a review of the cult classic,"Poultrygeist", perhaps?
Or even my pitifully sung rendition of "Poultry in Motion"?

Alas... no.

It's an award!

An award that was, ahem... awarded to me, by none other than Ladybird World Mother.

And just like Ladybird World Mother, I have a habit of saving the awards awarded to me by my lovely fellow bloggers, and sticking them in a folder on my desktop, for when I get around to doing them justice.

Which just goes to show that I am incredibly slack.
Not ungrateful, just... slack.

I have yet to do justice to the last 4 awards that I've recieved... So if you've been kind to me and awarded me with something , and it seems that I haven't paid much attention... well please know that I'm just hopeless.
Not uncaring.

My accountant, and the girls in the office would agree with me.
And that may very well be the reason that I am seldom paid on time.

Now that I've shared my shameful little secret with ya'll...
On to the award!!!

"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.
These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all."

Now, I was going to just post this award and leave it as a sort of free-for-all for anyone to grab... but after reading it through, it seems that I'll incur the wrath of the dreaded zombie chickens if I don't personally select 5 recipients.

So rather than risk the wrath of undead, zombified poultry, I'm selecting 5 fellow bloggers to award this lovely little gem to.

And I'm doing it semi-scientifically.

By closing my eyes and stabbing at the blogger list on my compter screen.

So, without further ado, here goes:

1. Reddirt Woman. You'll smile, you'll cry, you'll laugh your patootie off!
But this girl just doesn't talk dirt... She gets absolutely covered in mud... and she posts the photos to prove it! And her tootsies? Gorgeous!
And anyone who takes photos of men in chaps... *sigh* Well, that makes her aces in my book!

2. Modern Day Ozzie and Harriet. Marjie can single-handedly take the blame for the size of my arse... because if she posts a recipe, I just have to try it! Thanks to her recipe, I now make my own mayo, and it beats Best Foods hands down! The woman can cook !! And the best part is, she's down-to-earth and talented.. and just a lovely person to spend some time with.
And her Thor? Omigosh, I want one of him!

3. Coffee with the Hermit is a newfound treasure... And if you stop on by, HermitJim will make you feel right at home - and he's already got the coffee pot ready and waiting for y'all...

4. sidewalk shoes ... Pam is just a sweetheart. and I always love sitting down and having a good gander at what she's written. But be prepared to drool... the photos alone, are to die for!
Not that the weekend cat blogging photos make me want to drool... but they do make me smile!

5. The Mosquitoes Buzz ... Bz is... well, what can I say? She's funny, delightful, open and honest... and the girls in her family are all a treat!
( and make sure you check out her mama's blog while you're there!)
Plus, she's got great pins!

Okay... that concludes my "semi-scientifically chosen " five recipients.

But I have more.

No, I'm not going to list them here, but if you ever get a chance, check out all the folks on my blog list.
They're all worth a read. Each and every one of 'em.
And who knows?
You might just find another blog to add to your list!

Hi Kate

Is your player a Mixpod or Playlist? I had Playlist but that ceased to work in Oz then I saw a Mixpod player on a blog so I went to and got it from there. Set up the player in Mixpod then get the code for it.
Go into Layout,add a gadget, choose HTML/Java Script then cut and paste the code for the player into that. Sounds as clear as mud, right? Hope you can get it to work.

I put a link on my blog for the Anzac slice - its really easy to make - melt and mix.

Cheers - Joolz

Aw, shucks, I'm flattered. Sorry about your arse, but, really, would you visit if I posted great diet foods? Like this: "The tasteless, low calorie, high fiber green thing of the day is....." CLICK! And you'd be outta there. But as for the mayo, I'm so glad I could help. And I'm about 4 awards behind, too. Please don't send the Zombie Chickens after me the week before Thanksgiving!

(And have a great deal of seafood and get a suntan for me on Thanksgiving...not that I've ever had a tan. You'll find my picture in the dictionary under "white girl".)

You just crack me up!!!

Congratulations to all your Zombie Chickens award winners.

Zombie Chicken Award...., good grief, that's funny.

Pam said...

Thank you so much for the Zombie Chicken award! This is seriously my most favorite award ever!

Bz said...

Well, gosh ... I have to say you are tooooo kind. I'm flattered with your sweet comments. As far as being 'chosen'... well... since your method of choosing was kind of the 'dart-board approach , I'll just say, "awwww, I've been hit!"... oh, and... uh...?... I'm SURE this is (another) "Duhhh"moment on my part (hey, I AM "donating" brain cells at the present time)...anyway, you mentioned: "she's got great pins!"... Pins?!? ...great??? ...I'm glad I got something great... but ??..."pins' ...I'm so lost (but that wouldn't be the first time!).

Yerk! It would appear Mixpod has had its licensing cut so some songs don't/can't play in Australia. A lot of my songs are not playing at the moment. *sobs*


Tatersmama said...

joolz, Mine is a Playlist, so I'll be switching over. I may have to get you to talk me thru installing it!
But mixpod? WHY do they do that thing with the songs??? Grrrr!
Marjie, Honey you just stick with the recipes you have. I have NO complaints at ALL, other than the size of my arse, and I have to admit that I can't blame you fully for that!
farmlady, It was a new one on me, but it's delightfully wacky, innit? ;-)
Pam, Yay for you then! I'm glad I could put a smile on your face!
Bz, Like it or not, you've got great legs! My 55 yr old legs (or rather ONE leg) looks like a Rand-McNally road map, so yours are gorgeous!
I wouldn't wear shorts if I was dying of heat exhaustion, so just himore me, okay? ;-)

I was expecting some kind of sleepwalking chickens!

Congratulations on your award and I will check out the winners. They all sound like great places to visit.

Have a great day.

The Wife said...

Congrats! I have the same problem with awards. So flattered to get them but never get around to posting em.

Nancy M. said...

My chickens are personally offended by this award, lol! What an interesting award! Congrats!

Bz said...

I repeat: "You are toooo kind!"
(But, thanks, I'll take it because I have been feeling like a HOUSE lately).

Ladybird World Mother said...

Hi! You definitely deserve the coveted Zombie Chicken Award. Congrats! I love the word "poultrygeist" and the song title "Poultry in Motion." And I'm not chicken, I mean kidding!
