Who Are You Calling "Psycho?"

I wanted to take a break in the E8 action for a bit to thank my man over at Squatlo Rant for giving me The Psycho Carnival Award For Originality!

I've had it for a few of weeks now, but with this blogger tourney going on, I haven't had a chance to acknowledge and thank him for it. In fact, once I finish this tourney, I may take a blogcation for a bit and see if The Mrs. still remembers me. Don't worry though, I still have a few posts to tie you over while I'm gone. :)

When I first started blogging, it was politically-motivated. Rush Limbaugh said something to piss me off and my first blog post was born. Over time, my blog became a reflection of me. I'm very diverse and although I'm not an expert at anything, I try to know a little something about everything. I pride myself of being able to have a fun conversation with an 18-year old about Nicki Minaj or have a serious conversation with an 88 year old about the evolution of family structure. My versatility gives me the range that allows me to show contempt at how Corporate America preys on us yet show a vulnerable side of myself being caught in a compromising situation.

Anyway, let me step off the soapbox a sec. Squatlo gave the award to me on the condition that I publish a picture of myself and give the award to three other deserving bloggers. I've decided to bestow this award on three bloggers. Two of them I've just recently started following:
This "half-American and half-crazy" Filipino piece of dynamite has blown me away with her rants. She can make you laugh and make you think in the same sentence. Now that's talent! Check her out here! This award goes out to you, Michelle!

Wanna hear the truth? Then you definitely need to check out The Writing Assassin. This young lady reveals the world through her eyes and exposes a lot of hard truths. I think any woman would learn from this blog and any man can appreciate the talent she types with each click of her keyboard. Check her out here! This award goes out to you, Tameka!

This last recipient I've followed on Twitter for a minute, but recently got deep into her blogosphere during the 1st Annual Thank, Q for Bloggers Tournament (hey, it's my site, I can plug it whenever I choose). This site asks questions that some people are afraid to broach. EmDottie is a site where the author speaks her mind, so if you're offended by tweets like, "Fat men are so unattractive. . . No offense..." then this site isn't for you.

Luckily for me, I'm married and don't have to worry about being rejected by her for having some extra lbs. around my mid-section. LOL! Besides, blogging is all about free speech and opinions. Remember that the next time you get ready to comment on someone's site. Check her out here! This award goes out to you, Mone't for actually saying what other people only think!

So, just like I did, you ladies will have to pass this on to three other people that are worthy. Oh, I almost forgot! The photo that I have to include for being presented this award baffled me for the longest. What photo should I place here for my followers to see? For the most part, you've seen my ugly mug in a few posts here and there, but if you want to see me, then you have to earn it. Click here. While you're at it, you might as well go ahead and "Like" my FB page while you're there.

LOL! Marketing myself = "Duh, winning!"

Sonia is probably so proud of me right now. :)

For those of you who are lazy and without Facebook accounts (believe me, people like that actually exist), then here's a little something...

(Just keep scrolling until your hand gets tired...)

(Just a little further...)

Diego Maradona better be glad I was only 10 when he won the World Cup or his career may have finished differently.


  1. AWW THANKS Q! :) Lol, I'm frank, what can I say.

  2. And there's nothing wrong with that. Don't ever apologize for having an opinion. If anything, I'm pretty sure The Mrs. is fine with one less lady she has to worry about.

  3. Congrats to you and those you bestowed the award to. All very worthy bloggers.

    And dude! Nice back in the day pic! I remember playing soccer long long ago, before you realized it's a sport and there'd just be 20 kids clustered around a ball...

  4. Thank, Idaho. I was wired a bit differently though. I was extremely competitive, especially when I got switched to goalie. I didn't run around aimlessly kicking at things after my first year. I was trying to make things happen. LOL!

  5. Thanks, Alice. He's available for adoption for a pricey fee.

  6. Oh, this is awesome!! What a thing to come here & see. With my man, Kelly, as the mastermind behind the award, I find that one to be a great honor. ;-) Congratulations!!

    I have a lot of catching up to do. Falling behind on the radio show, voting in the tourney, and when are we gonna hear more past stories from Quincy?
    I must say I was thoroughly enjoying those!! I had no idea what a good & humorous storyteller you were till you pulled those out of your hat, Q.

  7. Thanks, Pixi! I actually have a story coming up right after the tourney ends. After hearing T-cat and A Daft Scot's Las telling their telemarketer horror stories, I decide to share one of my own as well.

  8. Oooh! Hey Q! Let me holla at some new posts! Even if it means the tourney take a one-day hiatus...

  9. "Holla at new posts?" LOL! Nice! I may squeeze a post out this week if I can.

  10. Congrats Q, that was so funny. You work hard at it! Keep up the good work. You inspire me all the time!

  11. WOW!!! Thanks, Q!!! To get an award in the MIDDLE of the Stunner Tourney?! That makes me SUPAH FLY! Yup! Yup! Thank you so much thinking of me. You are definitely a man of many talents - jack of all trades - a "renaissance man" if you will. I dig your blog - funny stuff, fun stuff (like the Stunner Tourney) and stuff that makes you think. That's all GOOD STUFF in my book. Congrats to you on getting the award from Squat!

  12. @ Sonia & Reckmonster, thanks!
