We measure up!

Smart Mouth Broad from Words of Wisdom from a Smart Mouth Broad recently gave Highway Hags our first ever award:

Oh look... tools!

Oh look... tools!

Personally, we think it’s pretty damned cool to get an award, and Hedon is especially stoked that said award has no glitter or fluffy things anywhere to be seen on it! Haven’t mentioned it before now cause we wanted to really take our time before completing the other part of the award:

1) Say one nice thing to a man in your life: I told Uriah, our dispatcher, that over time he had become our favorite dispatcher. Which is actually true… most days.

2) List at least six ways that you measure success in your life (or your blog):


1) Living according to my own rules — in other words: Nice try, Madison Avenue.

2) The fact that I really honestly can’t think of a single thing I want for Christmas — in that my desire for crap appears to have really fallen off at some point without my realizing it.

3) Freedom. Don’t have this one yet, but it’s one I’m really looking forward to gaining.


4) Good lord… I still have no idea and we’ve been thinking about this for days. I spend so much of my time just trying to survive that I have no idea how to measure success. It’s like thinking about trying to perform a double half gainer twisting something dive when you haven’t even jumped off the edge of the pool yet.

5) Most days I count my biggest success in terms of how many dumb-ass drivers I didn’t run over that day.

6) Dying with the fewest regrets possible.

Then pass this award along to six other blogs and let them know you awarded it to them. We read tons of blogs that more than measure up, but what with having hit several of them recently with a MeMe I’m afraid to award this honor to them even though they richly deserve it. There are a couple of the sites we visit faithfully that haven’t been hit with anything by us and lord knows they measure up to any standard you can set:

Decorina over at Decorina and Skylar

Tina the Lesbian over at Renal Failure

Sheila of Ma Vie Folle fame

And… still trying for some response from God over at The Vatican

I know that’s only four, but with Smart Mouth’s extras it all evens out. Thanks again, Smart Mouth Broad.

    Curious as to what the Vatican has to say…

    …and seriously not stalking you, I’ve just been poking and prodding around your blog and happened to be here when this posted.

    No fair, you split the six things. Guess I’ll need to poll Skylar… I’d have to wake him up, though, it is past his bedtime. Tomorrow then.

    See, never change you two, never change. All these awards and stuff…
