someone's gonna bring me round

The only thing nicer than being recognised for something that you just do for fun and therapy, is to be recognised by someone whose own work you respect highly.  So when the pithy, opinionated and potty-mouthed (these are all complementary terms, by the way) Wandering Coyote bestowed an E for Excellence Award upon me recently, I was very touched.  

So touched that I didn't write anything for a few days.

But I am ready to take my bow now.  So just let me grab the mike here for a minute.  I'ma let you finish, but Wandering Coyote has the best blog of all time!

Evidently I am now to bestow this honour upon ten other blogs worthier than mine.  Shouldn't be hard.  There are many more than we have room to list.

Jen - irreverent, foul-mouthed, fearless
John - consistent, northern big-shot, too damned funny for a book guy
Allison - thoughtful, poetic, plaid-wearing
Beckeye - sassy, pop culture goddess
Justrun - deep, big-hearted
Dr Monkey von Monkerstein - weird, smart and righteous, crown prince of the internet
Bloody Awful Poetry - way too witty for her age, lengthy posts that are never TLDR
Sean - music guru, pop culture god, wickedly sly humour
Doc - helluva story teller, awesome accent
Charlie - way too entertaining, and I don't care that he already got this award from WC

Please check out these worthy blogs;  you'll find something in each of them to make you glad you made the click.  You may even want to buy these blogsmiths a congratulatory drink. 

Fist pounds all round.

Thanks for the compliments Barbara!

Thanks for the condiments Barbara!

i will look at them all

Charlie said...

WC deserves the compliments. You deserve the compliments. And yes, I deserve the compliments too--the hell with humility.

With seriosity, you deserve this award. You're no lightweight in the humor field either.

And thanks, Barbara, for the award. Now I have to write something and earn my keep.

Allison said...

Aw, thank-you Barb! You're far too kind. I will have to check out the others on your list too. Some I am not familiar with. Always nice when the blogsphere grows beyond your favourites. :)

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I am highly honored to have received this from you, one of my blog heroes. Thanks.

You know, this is the second time you've bestowed a blog award upon my undeserving self. You love me! You do! Much thanks for the honour.

Doc said...

You are much too kind dear, and from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

I finally have something to replace my "participant" ribbon from the Fourth grade Science Fair.

I'll post an offical "thank you" over the weekend when I'm not overwelmed with work.


Barbara Bruederlin said...

You are all rock stars of the blogging world!

Conky said...

that brought fucking tears to my eyes gawd dammit.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

haha Jen.

Sean Wraight said...

Is there any prize money associated with this "Zombendation"? I really think there should be y'know... Being excellent don't come cheap after all. Nor does it come easy.

I'll keep watching the mails for a cheque k?

His Excellency,

(P.S. Could you possibly be any nicer?)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

There is definitely a prize, Sean, paid out in annual installments of $1.00 CDN per year for the next million years.

I guess I never did tell you about the time I had my horoscope done. According to that reading, I am not as nice as everyone thinks I am.
