Scatterday: life questions, life goals, and awards!

Life questions:

1. Sugar-coated marshmallows. How can something so vile in theory taste so good?

2. This one's been plaguing me for a while. What the hell is the difference between "dusk" and "twilight?" Creep (this is my new name for former Boyfriend) tried to explain it this way: Dusk is a song by some metal band. A br00tal one. Twilight is an awful tween vampire movie. This explanation did not satisfy me and I continued seeking answers.

Here is what I've decided. Dusk is that time of late afternoon when the sun is getting low and almost everything is in shadow. But, the sun hasn't gone below the horizon yet. Twilight happens after the last sliver of sun dips below the horizon and everything takes on an indigo hue.

Agree? Disagree? Don't give a bunny's bum? Comments are VVV that-a-way.


Life goal: use the words "juggernaut" and "goliath" in the sports section before we switch editorial duties. So, this weekend.


And now... AWARDS!

Ah, my first blog award! I have awaited this day with bated breath!

K a b l o o e y gave me the One Lovely Blog award earlier this week. How lovely of her!

The rules that came with the award were not so lovely. Pass it on to 15 people? That's half my blogroll! If I give an award to all those people, what will it mean to any of them? That's communism is what it is. Now, no one get upset; I wouldn't be reading your blog if it didn't deserve an award! But as for the Lovely award, I have picked just one - count it - one Lovely Blog from the bunch.

Allow me to introduce you to Lady Sunflower. Her blog is ray of pure joy on the darkest, dreariest days (I know because today was one of them). Just the sunflower at the top of her page is enough to put a smile on my face. Mortal pessimists, meet the eternal optimist!

Cynthia@RunningWithLetters followed up K a b l o o e y ' s award with the Over the Top award. Again, many thanks! I guess I can't hide my, er, mild insanity from my fans. Good to know you crazy cats appreciate it. ^_^

Thankfully, this one allowed me to choose how many recipients I would pass it along to. But I know a lot of over the top people, so it was a tough call! I narrowed it down to these three, listed alphabetically so no one can accuse me of playing favorites:

Emily at one more thing...
K a b l o o e y
Sass at Hot Piece of Sass

Congrats, ladies! You all make my days a little more over the top. Everyone, pay them a visit and leave a little love, since we bloggers thrive on comments!

Peace, love, and Saturdays,
Miss Rex

Hey, i read Dustland Fairytales and really enjoyed your latest entires, but I couldn't see where to commment so I'm commenting on here.

You oktoberfest entrie was cute, I really like the way you write its simple and short and sweet but yet has great images and detail and tells alot, it makes it easy to just keep reading and reading then before you know it youve read five entries.

Oh, and real quick i saw on your profile page that you like Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, that's neat because it seems not many people know of him and his work and I think he is extremely talented, his novels are incredible.

Anyway, on your maize entry- I liked reading that. Where was the maize? Their is a thing called Maize quest in PA and I used to go every year until I moved to AZ for college and I'm not home in the fall. They have the stamps and everything and you carry a flag in case you need to find a way out and the best is when you go at night because you can do the maize by flashlight and it's so much fun. the'r apple cider is nice too. your post made me miss it so much, i hope you had fun!

Your definition of dusk vs. twilight I think is right on. At dusk, shadows are long - the sun's not yet gone down but the wind holds the promise of coming night. At twilight, the sun has set and the first stars are peeking out - everything is colored blue in the final glow before darkness overtakes it.

Congratulations on your awards! You truly deserve them. And, I definitely agree with your definitions of dusk and twilight. Paul should be ashamed of how he defined Twilight. HUMPH! :0) According to the dictionary, it defines dusk as the 'dark part of twilight'. Twilight is defined as 'the soft, diffused light from the sky when the sun is below the horizon - the period in the morning or, more commonly, in the evening during which this light prevails.' I still like yours best! ;0)

Hey, I wanted to ask if you would PLEASE take a moment to come by and read my latest post? This family just lost their precious baby boy and they desperately need our help!


I hope you have an amazing Sunday!

Teresa <><

Aw, thanks, Sugar!! I love awards and this one made my day. You deserve the recognition. When I read you, I forget you're so young. Ever heard you have a wise soul?

Btw, sorry your day was shittier than mine - by far. Won't be the last prick you run across. Well done for standing your ground and being true to yourself. Sounds cliche but then cliches are often true.

Love the randomness. Congrats on your award!

You officially made my day! Thank you so very much! And, you are more than deserving of your awards.

Oh, you definition of dusk vs. twilight is spot on. At least, as far as I am concerned.
