Love For My Fellow Bloggers In A Totally Non-Slutty Way

Last week, WWFC was getting that warm, fuzzy feeling that only comes when you’ve received praise from your peers. (Ok, so it also comes when the cat on your lap pees, but that’s not what happened. This time.) We received our first award, and got quite a few mentions from various bloggers. Some of the things that were said about us were so incredibly sweet and flattering, we actually thought there might be another Nicky and Mike blog team out there. But, no, you guys were talking about us. To misquote Sally Fields: “You like us, you really, really like us!” To say this helped me get my mojo back would be a ridiculous understatement. Now I’d like to show my appreciation for some of the bloggers out there who don’t just make my day, they engage me, they inspire me, they teach me, they make me laugh, they make me think, they challenge me to be better and they keep me going. ‘Nuff said.

Jen over at Redheadranting is an amazing blogger, an amazing person. Jen created Tribal Blogs, a blogging supernetwork that is, hands down, the greatest thing since cheese. Go check it out. I can’t even begin to tell you how much she impresses me. She is funny, smart, talented, and generous. And she loves Canadians. I’m working on getting her a key to the country.

Jayne over at injaynesworld could have been a Supreme Court Justice. She would have been awesome at it, but I’m really, really glad she chose to write blogs instead of rulings. I don’t think she would have been able to mention her size 4 ass in a ruling. Unless “legal brief” means something completely different than what I thought? Introducing us to Cotswold won her a special spot in my heart, but in truth, her brilliant, thought-provoking, hilarious writing trumped the Cotswold. I admire her more than I can say.

What can I say about Linda over at The Good, The Bad, The Worse? I adore her. When I think of Linda, I immediately envision myself arriving at her home unannounced, intending to surprise her with my visit, only to find her in her garden, Harry at her feet, with 2 glasses of wine and a lovely cheese platter. Then she says “There you are. We’ve been waiting for you!”

Man Over Board is a great site, and girl friendly, despite the name! Glenn finds the funniest videos, pictures and stories. And he hates the iPad almost as much as I hate the iPhone! Everytime I visit, I never know what to expect, and I’m never disappointed.

Momma Mia, Mea Culpa is a lovely spot I like to park myself when I need to laugh so hard I pee. Meleah makes the ordinary hilarious. She does things differently , which is downright inspiring, and provides tons of great advice based on experience, often unfortunate experience. She always puts a smile on my face.

Ziva’s Inferno is almost as hot as Ziva herself. I’ve openly declared my crush on her. It appears Captain Kirk is not the only Canadian to dig green chicks. She is brilliant and beautiful and makes me want to visit Finland. Yes, she’s that good! Our daily conversations all over the blogosphere are high points of my day. Along with her cookies and her Chernobyl Chicken.

MikeWJ from Too Many Mornings is an incredibly gifted writer. I know this is going to make his skeletal head inflate, but it is the honest truth. From love story to alien invasion, MikeWJ always weaves a brilliant tale that completely hooks me. He is clever, quick-witted, and creative. He is the very definition of wordsmith. And he is, undisputedly, the Comment King. You’ll come for the posts, you’ll stay for the comments.

And, of course, I couldn’t write about my favourite bloggers without mentioning the 2 men I share WWFC with. Besides being funny,talented and my best friend, Mike is also the foundation of WWFC. He deals with all the back-end stuff (is it just me, or does that sound sleazy?) which I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate. His stories about his grandmother are my favourites. Jepeto absolutely slays me. The boy has no filter between his brain and his mouth (or his keyboard). I have the honour of reading/editing  his random thoughts before they are published to our site, and I always, always laugh my ass off. His girlfriend definitely deserves a medal for putting up with him.

Well, that’s it I guess. I know I’ve left out a quite a few people like Ratty, Rena, Frank, and Rod. And so many more. Please know that it’s only because I had to cut myself off at some point or we may just run out of internet. Thanks again for the love. It’s more than a dancing purple avatar with red sunglasses could have hoped for.

  • Okay, I’m sure all those other folks are wonderful, but I hurriedly skipped to the part about me and here’s what I got whilst excitedly skimming it over: head inflate, tail, hookers, come and post. Now I’m soaking wet, and, frankly, too exhausted to go back and read about Jayne and Jen and Linda and that poor dude who fell overboard. Unless you’d be willing to tell us more–much more, and in as great a detail as possible–about you and Ziva and any desire you might have to go where at least one man has gone before, but perhaps no women. Of course, if you do, then I might have to say a mea culpa or two. Or three. Or four. Look, I’m not entirely sure how far this developing story of yours could take me. But it’s got my attention, okay? I’m sure it’s also got the attention of Ratty, Frank, Rena and, of course, Rod. Yeah, definitely Rod.

  • I just read the headline to your post and realized it’s about your love for other bloggers in a non-slutty way.

    Oops.

    What I really meant to say, was, uhmm, thanks for the kind words, Nicky. I’m deeply honored to be included in your circle of friends. And likewise.

    So to recap: thank you, deeply honored, please disregard my previous comment, which was totally inappropriate unless you’re a politician, major sports figure or Catholic priest.

  • Okay, look, I admit it. The girl-girl thing is at least mildly interesting. I’m a guy, all right? So SORRY for being a guy. It wasn’t my choice, I’d just as soon have been a girl, what their multi-orgasmic thing and willingness to have pillow fights and try on each other’s clothes and…

    Oh, fuck it! Now I’m heading down the transgender trail without my fucking hiking boots. I’m totally embarassing myself in front of all the other bloggers at this point.

    That’s it. This changes everything. I’m going to get serious about my life for the first time in my life. I’ve finally seen the light. Amazing grace! I’m getting right with God and going to seminary. I’m going to minister to starving people in Africa, or work to clean up the environment, or something good like that.

    Thank you, Nicky, and God bless you for putting me on the path to righteousness!

  • MikeWJ – LOL. And this is why you have been named the Comment King. Yes, those other folks are truly wonderful. And I need attention?

    MikeWJ – Thank you for reading the headline. Finally. You are welcome. And “likewise”? Really? I’m all choked up here.

    MikeWJ – I feel safe in saying, on behalf of God, stay right where you are and keep your contact with the rest of humanity to a minimum. Please. And if you do decide to loose yourself on the world, do NOT tell them I sent you.

    MikeWJ – I totally love her for her mind.

    Meleah – Just don’t use the wrong kind of tissue to wipe your eyes!! 🙂

    Chinaren – You named us Blog of the Week? How on earth did I miss that? Thank you so much! That kind of slutty love is perfectly acceptable in the blogosphere 🙂

  • Nicky! You are the most wonderful, awesome, gorgeous little Canadian I have ever had the privilege of almost meeting. Although, if we get that Second Life thing going we’ll have to upgrade “almost meeting” to “virtually hooked up with”. Thank you so much for the kind words, I can’t tell you how happy I am that I found this awesome, if slightly cheesy, place. My crush on you is growing each day. Or as MikeWJ would say: I’d totally let you “go where at least one man has gone before, but perhaps no women.” (Mike, you’re adorably clueless. Don’t you know that women go to college for one thing only? And it ain’t to get smart.)

    I am so touched. What an honor, this is why I love you guys so much. Mikes comments are cracking me up and now I have a picture of him in drag stuck in my head. And I thought I left too many inane comments all over the blogosphere. Jayne should have been a Supreme Court judge, she would have rocked at it and her size 4 ass would have looked darling under all those robes (Mike is probably fantasizing about girl judge on girl judge right now). Meleah is so awesome I have decided that I am going to write a post DTD in honor of her because she can’t this week, I have invited everyone else to join in writing DTD posts for her over at Tribal Blogs, be sure to join up. Glenn is a rock star too. He had held my hand, virtually, many times with regard to my blog. He always has something funny to say and though I feel as if I should be offended as a woman when I visit his blog I never do. I’ve only just met Ziva but I can certainly see how you would have a girl crush on her. Thanks so much Nicky, this made me all sniffly.

    Jen – Thank you Jen, for befriending us, for starting Tribal Blogs and for just being so awesome!

  • Great, now Jen sees me in drag (I wonder how she’s got me dressed?), Ziva thinks I’m clueless, and Nicky thinks I ought to be locked up. This single honor has pretty much totally ruined my life. Maybe I’ll do better in Second Life.

  • MikeWJ – In all fairness, Jen couldn’t very well help it since you were the one going on about wanting to be a girl, Ziva did use the adjective “adorable” and I only suggested you keep a low profile since you seem to be quite…overstimulated.

  • What a wonderful post and I am so humble to be mentioned with all the great bloggers that you mentioned. Everyone of these blogs we share something in common, we love their blogs and with that their thoughts and the way they write their thoughts for all of us to enjoy.

    But you did forgot one blog that has not only grown in front of my eyes, but to everyone of the owners of the above mentioned blogs. And that is WWFC.

    I so enjoy when I get the chance now, to appreciate your blog more and more. Although I haven’t had the time that I enjoyed over the winter months. Visiting the blogs I love is one of my greatest pleasures. Even though most of us have never met in person, it feels like we have and that we all become fast friends. Even if your from another country eh?
