Who writes checks anymore, anyway?

One of my best friends is staying with me for a month until she leaves for France, so I’ve been trying to keep the house in a semi-orderly state. Lucky for me I’ve found a couple of cleaning ladies who don’t mind working for cheap.

The younger one was pretty gung-ho…

…while the older one was a bit condescending.

The owner was a real bitch, though.


Anywhoo, last Friday while I was busy giving her an award for her so-hilarious-I-almost-peed-my-pants-that-one-time blog, Dolce was busy giving me one. Awesome! Validation, how I crave thee…

Now I’m supposed to give it to 5 other Uber Amazing bloggers. You should, like, totally be reading these blogs if you aren’t already. So here they are, in a particular order which I will not divulge:

Kate at New Life in South Dakota because I think it is Uber Amazing how she’s taken control of her life, and I always find her posts inspiring. PLUS she has a cooking blog which is new but still ROCKS.

Dingo at As I was Saying because of her Uber Amazing photoshop skillz. Yes, with a Z because they are that amazing.

Crissy at Crissy’s Page because it is the first blog I read in the morning to reward myself for making it to work yet another day. Also she is an Uber Amazing Hot Mommy Blogger.

Lisa at Lemon Gloria; a blog I’ve just started reading but is hilarious and Uber Amazing.

Ben at No Ordinary Rollercoaster because his lunch box rivals mine for it’s Uber Amazing-ness. Also I hope he will take me on a date.

P.S. Don’t forget about the contest! You don’t even have to have a blog (or a pit bull) to win!

  1. I could have used your cleaning crew this past weekend. Do you think they would go for baked goods instead of money as payment for their services?

  2. OMG!

    Thank you for the award! I was actually here earlier and I read most of the post but then stupid, needy coworkers wanted something so I had to leave.

    I’m so excited about this award!!! You are AWESOME!!!

  3. You know, my husband was just bugging me this weekend about hiring some cleaning help. Now I think I’ve found the perfect company!! We have dogs too for them to play with when they’re done cleaning 🙂

  4. Hey – thanks very much! I love being awarded with a frilly pink bow! And I love the scarves on the dogs. Very practical *and* stylish.

  5. I need your maids. I spent the most of Sunday doing laundry, dishes, and vacumming the remnants of 3 bags of extra butter popcorn from my living room floor. Best thing is I was free of the 10 eight-year old girls who had come over for the slumber party… and I lived to tell the tale…

  6. You are so funny. If only I had a crew like yours these hair-tumbleweeds would stop appearing and blowing across my livingroom.

  7. ben – I receive so few manly man awards… Just imagine it a manly shade of brown. Or blue. Or whatever color you Canadian men are wearing this winter.

    marie – I think I can safely speak for them when I say YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES!

    crissy – Stupid co-workers! No frilly pink bow for them.

    dr zibbs – I’ll remember this picture when I’m getting poked in the ass by tiny devils wielding pitch forks in hell. Dogs shouldn’t have to wear clothes. Or head scarves.

    And thanks for the award, btw! I feel like my stocking is going to be empty, because Christmas has come early to the Mutha Fudruckin’ household.

    daisee579 – They offer a laundry service as well, however all underwear will be returned w/o crotches. Good help is hard to find…

    ~trish~ – I’m so lucky to have beaten the visciousness out of them. They put up with a lot. Big mean pitbulls.

    dolce – Come to think of it, I may have heard Dexter muttering some German obscenities under his breath.

    …love maegan – It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.

    lisa – Story of my life…practicality + stylish = me. Maybe.

    tl – Popcorn cleanup is one of the standard services offered by the Bad Mutha Fudruckers. No extra charge. Unless you have fat-free low-sodium popcorn. Then we’ll have to negotiate.

    brazenbaretoe – I’m convinced the dust bunnies are having an orgy under my couch. And in the corners. And behind the refridgerator. Fucking sluts.

    kate – Believe it, baby. More would follow if you’d provide us some details of the wild monkey sex. Just sayin’.

  8. Awwww, I read most of those bloggers, so I know what you mean about their uber-awesomeness. Yay for awards and bloggy love!

  9. Thank you so much! YOU are actually the awesome one but I guess giving yourself an award is kinda tacky.

    Although I love the pink bow, how do I get one of those smashin’ head scarves? Do they come with some superpower that will make me feel like cleaning my apartment?

  10. nilsa – Christmas has come early to the Mutha Fudruckin’ household, that is for sure.

    dingo – I thought about giving myself the award, but I’ve been trying to teach the boys to not be so selfish, so I decided to pass it along.

    As for the head scarf, I think I got this one at Goodwill. It doesn’t make me want to clean the house, but it does make me want to dress the dogs up and take pictures.

  11. Have I told you that I love your cartoons?

    You chose awesome blogs. Congrats to all!

    Tell the older cleaning lady to calm it. My dust bunnies can kick your dust bunnies’ butts.
