Sexy and Talented Diploma (STD)


Bloggers giving other bloggers an STD is one of those unspoken results of blogging. You write and you post, you wring your hands in anticipation of someone liking you enough to give you an STD. Then…like that itch that will never go away…it happens!

You rejoice, you spin around, you wave your thingy in front of other people! You can call your Mother and proudly say “YES! I have an STD!” The people cheer. Lovers cry and the poets dream. I stand upon my soapbox and scream with the kiddies: “I HAVE AN STD!”

This STD was awarded to me by someone I’ve quickly, and fondly, started to call a new friend: Jessica Brandt of Finding One’s Way. She was given her STD by the woman who created it at Adventures in Estrogen. Please click on the links and give them a whirl. Who knows? You, yourself, might catch an STD.

With this, I am required by law (well, bloggers etiquette law) to pass on some STDs and the following safety message:

1. Make up ONE totally ridiculous story about yourself that is a complete rip-off from a movie. It can be as long or short as you want; clean or crass as you want.

2. Pass it on to whomever you feel is deserving of this STD – or accept it and keep it for yourself; it’s your blog – it’s your choice.

3. If you choose to accept this STD, please link your acceptance post back to Adventures in Estrogen and to the person who gave you your STD (in your case it would be Tale Spinning) You get the point?
You can choose to keep  your STD for yourself. Yet if you choose to pass your STD around do it fervently and don’t forget to back link

4.Use the acronym “STD” as much as possible within you post (send SEO’s into a tale spin) I have used it 14x’s within this post, 15 if you count the title.

Jessica wrote the following, and I agree, so I’m stealing..uhmm..copying and pasting this disclaimer/PSA:

STD’s are serious and should be looked after as soon as possible to prevent spreading infection. FOW and Tale Spinning does not condone sex with out condoms.

If you are going to play, Play Safe!!!!

If you feel you have contracted an STD. For a complete list of STD’s  please check out the

Center for Disease Control and Prevention

I pass on this STD (darn..16x now) to the following: ( the hopes no one gets angry at me, I chose people who have NOT been given this award by either Jessica or Lady Estrogen. Spread the love further! This does not mean I don’t appreciate, read and admire, other’s work, esp those already chosen. K?)

Life is good. I have defeated the Black Knight (stupid bugger). Overcome the Killer Rabbit. Spanked the Virgin Maidens! Left behind the Knights who now say “Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-PTANG. Zoom-Boing. Z’nourrwringmm”. is good. Camelot!

It is a silly place.

  1. LOL now we all have STD…

    Do you know I used to think the abbreviation only stood for Subscriber Trunk Dialing? Then of course I learned the more (in) famous expansion. And now this, from the award. Gotta love it 😀


    • Subscriber Trunk Dialing. I would never have gone there. I WAS thinking of all the subversive ways to play with STD in the blog, but I think I did enough originally.
      Straddling The Dimwitted?
      Slinking Towards Discovery?
      Smooching Thelma Dewylips?
      ah..the list could go on…. B)


  2. OMG, this is hilarious. Okay, now, it might take me a little while to figure out how to work *this* award into my blog, but now you’ve got me thinking…. I suppose a thank you would be in order, but it just feels so… so… WRONG to thank you for an STD! Hahaha. Too funny. Thanks 😉


  3. Congratulations on your STD!! 😀 😀
    STDs are getting around, are they? 😛 😛 Going to check out all the others who’ve contracted STD from you.. 😀
    (This is my favourite comment of the day! 😀 :D)


    • Thank you. Yes, I am quite proud of my STD. If you noticed, it’s not only infecting the blog post but the side bar too. Quite catching.

      Please be gentle with the others… I don’t know, yet, how they feel about getting my STD. 🙂
