French Onion Soup....not.

Blogger can kiss my......ahem. I'm rather annoyed. I spent an hour posting my French Onion soup recipe with pictures and despite saving every few minutes or so, booger...sorry, blogger threw my efforts into the ether to be consumed by greedy, evil net demons. I want to splat someone with a bowlful....virtually of course. It's too late to repost, my vision starts to go around 11.30am and the very small glass of red wine has kicked in, so it'll have to be tomorrow.

In the meantime, I received a blogger award.....yeah!, I hear some of you cry.... bugger off, Helen McGobby, I hear the rest of you cry, this French onion soup is never going to happen, is it, you wee Scottish... person.....from my lovely friend over at AC's Scrapbook. The award is the Honest Scrap Award and I am obliged, therefore, to list 10 honest things about my wee self.

1. It's already taken me 10 minutes to think up two honest facts about myself; is that because I've already told you everything?
2. I'm happy turning 40; it's another year closer to the kids growing up and having their mum around...
3. biggest fear is not being around for my kids whilst they are still young. But we all have that fear, don't we?
4. Despite my reputation to the contrary which in this country, isn't a bad thing, I really don't drink that much at all.
5. I never feel intimidated by other people which isn't always a good thing as I've found out to my peril.
6. I don't like going to the cinema with friends incase I have to silence kill them for talking; this is the only time you will see evil in my eyes.
7. I'm really, really scared of the Daleks. *shiver*
8. I check under my pillow for spiders every night. Once, Brian placed a little picture under there of a wee spider with a speech bubble saying "Boo!" and a big stupid smile on it's face. A little bit of Brian died that night....
9. I won the lottery...all six numbers once. For two minutes, I was a multi-millionaire. Unfortunately, it was an April Fools Joke by my quite-frankly-I'm-surprised-he-is-still-alive husband who expertly pulled it off. Oh yes.
10. I jump out of my skin at least three times a day, much to the amusement of my family; always ready to fight and defend, you see.

I am sorry that blogger screwed you without letting you enjoy it yourself. Congrats on your award though!

Congrats on your award. Yesterday, I stayed home with a headache, earache and toothache, so I had me a cup of the Hottie Hot chocolate. It was so good. I also held the hot cup against my ear and jaw. It felt so good! Thanks for that recipe!

I really like your husband now! I'm glad he's still alive.

Your fella sounds funny .... cruel, but funny! ;)

Helen McGinn said...

Lee, you get me entirely... ;O)

Judy, I'm so pleased! NOT that you had headache, earache and toothache, oh my, no! But that the Hottie Hot Chocolate helped. I hope you feel better today; I'd find all three of those very difficult to cope with.

U.M. Yeah, but for how long? ;O)

gaelikaa, the non funny ones were just too scarring... ;O)

angelcel, yup, that's my darling £$%^^**.

That soup sounds so good, I'll have to check back for the recipe! Your husband sounds like quite the joker. I don't think he'd live long at my house. ;-)
I came over from SITS!

Don't you just hate system glitches. Congratulations on your award.

You know, sometimes I get sooooooooo frustrated with Blogger. Last nite I wrote and I wrote and I wrote. Almost lost the entire post! That'll teach me to actually write in Blogger instead of word. SITs sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

Hehe, I want to *punch* the blogger many times too; especially at home! Each page I visit takes FOREVER to load! Sometimes it will not load at all so I can spend hours trying to visit my favorite blogs. And it is not the server as all the other net pages load just fine.
Congratulations on your award! Love all the things you listed; and yes, the Daleks are kind of scary.;) Dr. Who rules!

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm so sorry you lost your recipe! Blogger did that to me all the time. That's why I went WP.

Your husband is very lucky he is still alive, a good practical joker but a very naughty husband.

Globber, I mean, blogger takes ages to load for me. I often write in Windows Live Writer. Then you can save it on your own computer and it automatically posts it to you blog/blogs. Didn't know what a Dalek was...but I didn't like Dr Who very much, watched him a few times though. My husband would know better than to pull a joke like hate those plastic spiders....the real ones don't bother me.
