Fun with Doohickeys and Whatzits

I received a lovely email yesterday from one of the editors at Blogged.com, telling me that they reviewed my blog and gave it an 8.6 out of 10. This means what I've known all along...I'm great! It's official!

If you look in my sidebar, you'll see the little button that proves my greatness. If you're looking at it thinking "BeckEye is not merely great, she is a goddess among bloggers," well, it's time to let your voice be heard! Just click on "rate this blog," to inform the blogosphere of my true excellence.

Just above that doohickey, as always, is my Finetune music player. Right now it's playing my "Swing into Spring" mix, which doesn't have nearly enough songs for my liking. I'm hoping that some of you nice folks can suggest some springtime songs for me to add before June 22 rolls around. They don't necessarily need to be specifically about Spring, but they should have a springy feel to them. No funeral dirges. No odes to nights by the fire. No songs about rolling in your 5.0 with your ragtop down so your hair can blow. You know what spring feels like.

Click the "What's in BeckEye's Ear" link to see what's currently on the playlist.

A commenter recently mentioned that my new profile pic creeped them out. Does anyone else feel that way? I was actually pretty proud of how seamlessly I was able to take over Sandy's identity. I went all single white female on her spandexed ass!

Anyway, if it creeps everyone out, I'll change it. I don't want it bringing down my blog's greatness.

If you haven't already, don't forget to get in on this month's caption contest! The winner gets the greatest doohickey of all...the coveted Firecrotch of the Month badge.

To me it's like an interpretation of Grease by Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. You decide if that's creepy or not.

Congrats on your doohickey, you earned it!

Leonesse said...

Whooo hoooo beckeye. Now, not to raise suspicion, I only rated you a 9.1 on the blogger scale. You know you are 10.0 in my heart.

SkylersDad said...

We all knew you were great long before the blog kings decreed it!

And, I will give up my firecrotch award when the pry it from my cold dead hands!

CDP said...

Another attempt at a Firecrotch coup! Congratulations on the greatness, which we already knew about!

Alice said...

are you kidding? i LOVE the creepy sandy!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Sheesh, it's about time blogged.com figured out what the rest of us knew all along!

Nice spring list so far - glad to see Bishop Allen, The Cons and the Weakerthans represented. I'll see if I can find some worthy suggestions for you.

And for the record you sorta kick Olivia Newton John's ass all over the room.

Jesus, now I have that gay song from The Little Mermaid in my head because of your post title. "You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty! But who cares? No big deal! I waaaant moooorree..."

Shoot me now.

Red said...

I thought I already commented on this (it was early and maybe the Word Verification ate it), but I want to go on record and say I love you as Sandy. That is all.

I like the pic. Nice Photoshopping!

Turnbaby said...

You are awesome, your blog is awesome, that profile pic...not so much ;-)

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Hmmm, I have to admit that even though I like the pic, there is an element of creepiness to it!

I'm going to give you a "10", but you knew I would ;)

David Amulet said...

Congrats on the great score! A B+ is a very good grade.

Heather said...

The picture is creepy yet funny. I'd keep it.

Springs songs in Oregon make me think of Eddie Rabbit - Driving My Life Away. Those windshield wipers slappin' out a tempo keepin' perfect rhythm with the song on the radio.

WendyB said...

I give you a 10!

Writeprocrastinator said...

Further proof that The Pop Eye is all knowing and all seeing, congrats!

Gifted Typist said...

And the grand prize is....

a date with Michael Johns, but not until the Idol contest is over.

Congrats BeckEye. You rock.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
