I Am Your Overlord (In Case You Forgot)

Now that Blogger has graced me with its functioning once again (I guess those virgin sacrifices really did help!), I can now happily post my Overlord Award. Many thanks to Laynee at Lost in LaLa for bestowing this most awesome award on me! According to the terms of the Overlord Award, the rules are as follows:
The Rules:
1) List three things you would change as Overlord.
2) List 10 blogs worthy of world domination.
3) Contact them about their award.

Okay, then. I've always referred to myself as "Queen Mom" around my house, and now it's official. World domination is mine! My 3 rules are as follows:
  1. People are required to use the words "literally" and "ironic" correctly. Helpful hint: The sentence "I literally died" makes no sense unless you are speaking from beyond the grave or are a zombie. Also, it is not "ironic" if it rains on your wedding day (sorry, Alanis Morissette). It's just a bummer. 
  2. No sequels will be made to movies that should not have been made in the first place. 2b. No sequels will be made to movies that are good if the sequel is not also good. Hangover 2-need I say more?
  3. The declaration "It is what it is" will be eliminated from speech. It is overused and meaningless. Of course, it is what it is. How could it be otherwise? It isn't what it is? It is what it isn't? If you want to get philosophical, read Kant or Descartes. Leave the trite affirmations for whomever is going to take Oprah's place.
Now, for my nominations: The following bloggers are deserving of their own chance at World Domination:
  1. Bryan M. White at  Notes from the Night Owl
  2. Fireblossom at Shay's Word Garden
  3. darev2005 at Attitude and Pepper Spray
  4. Helen at Poetry Matters (she gets this one just for having the guts to post a video of herself singing a song she wrote on YouTube-you go girl!)
  5. Versebender at Versebender
  6. Mama Zen at The Zen of Motherhood
  7. Dragonkatet at Dragon's Dreams
  8. Olivia at Olivia's In-Mind Whirls
I'm sure there are others that I've forgotten in my hormonal pre-menopausal fog, and I hope you'll forgive me. I know I didn't name ten. I'm Overlord-I can do what I want! Rule on, oh fabulous ones! 


  1. oOo! I get to rule the world! Everyyybodyyy wants to ruuule the world la la la...

    Thanks, Lolamouse! As you know, it's good to be Queen!

    After switching to firefox, I am now able to comment everywhere again, yay, though my followers thingie seems disabled still. I have catching up to do on your Droppings blog.

    PS--now you really did it. You gave Mama Zen world domination powers? Ay yi yi. Goddess help us all! ;-) She'll probably install Big Snoop as her Number One!

  2. World domination? Heck, I'd be happy if my dog listened to me. I have to say this is one of the funniest posts ever. Thanks, Lolamouse.

  3. Rock 'n Rule ~ my kind of world.

    I don't do the award thingy ... but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for including me with this prestigious bunch of bloggers! I am honored.

    As Overlord / Overlassie ...

    I would:
    1. End War
    2. End Hunger
    3. End Poverty

  4. lolsss!

    So darn right... I loved what you wish to impose- Milady.. hehehe

    Honored to receive this one.. will post soon enough! Sending you mega hugs xoxox

  5. By the way, where the hell did you find a virgin to sacrifice?

  6. Ironically, this is literally the best post I have ever read. Now if you will excuse me I have to go write a nasty letter to Crayola concerning all the unnecessary colors in their 64 pack.

  7. Rain on your wedding day day would be ironic if you are a weather forcaster. Otherwise, yes, that bothers me, too.

  8. :) Yay! I think you make a pretty good Overlord, but THANK YOU for the award! Now I have to think about limiting myself to only THREE things to change...I guess I could always wish for more wishes and make the rule that I can change MORE than three things! MUAHAHAHAHHHH! YES! I HAVE THE, ok, that was He-Man. Nevermind. lol


Rant with me. Come on, you know you want to!
