Evil Joy Speaks

Spawning the next generation of evil genius, one misadventure at a time

For Me?!

So two of my favorite bloggers Snarkfest and You’re My Favorite Today gave me an award – the one, the only…..


Squirly award



And I’m not one to turn down any awards…evah!   And I sort of like squirrels – we don’t have many large trees out where I live (repurposed farmland) so we don’t have squirrels.  When we go into the city – the spawn think they are this exotic thing and chase them around – it’s cute – unless at the UofMn and then they aren’t so cute when the pop up out of the garbage cans and steal what you’re thinking about throwing away after you take just one more bite.

(Thinking that may be part of why I got the Squirrelly – random digressions….but then…if it gets me an award…bring it sista!)


So the deal is I have to share 10 squirrelly things about me.

1.  I love to run.  I’m not fast.  I’m not built like a runner.  But I love it.

2.  I’m the biggest procrastinator there is.  Like huge.  Like…yeah.

3.  I have this thing about 90 degree corners…I like things stacked neatly and I think things in a nice 90 degree relation to each other.  And if you, like my Eldest Spawn, move things askew just to mess with me – I will find you.  I will.

4.  I know more about math without numbers than math with numbers.

5.  I am fiercely loyal to those I love.  Don’t mess with them or you’ll mess with me.  And I know things about math.

6.  I have PTSD.  Some days life is great – other days it kicks my arse.

7.  I love when my spawn sit on my while watching a movie.  Especially if they are cuddly.  And then they get sleepy.  And warm.  And have that awesome spawn smell..the sweet one!

8.  The real reason I skip reading books to the spawn some nights is because I’m soooooo tired and I know I won’t be able to stay awake to get to my room.

9.  I swear like a sailor.  I swear way too much.  I simply am not that bothered by certain words.  I don’t know why they must have such importance attached to them.

10.  I have a HUGE picture of Noah’s Arc landing staring down at me right now.  It’s my favorite picture.  When the spawn were born we got a framed picture for that will one day be theirs.  Then we had two more spawn and no more money for stuff like that so…yeah…we’ll have to figure that out later.


Now…to pay it Forward!  Go check out these amazing bloggers…Let ’em know Evil Joy sent ya!
