Entertainment

I’d Like To Thank The Academy…

Surprisingly, there aren’t that many roles calling for a dancing purple avatar wearing a condom dress and red sunglasses, so those are words I’ll never utter in front of millions of adoring fans. Who cares?! If I were a world-famous (even in Finland), academy award winning actress then I would not be here telling my tens of adoring readers about this totally sweet award I was given by the incomparable and completely smokin’  Meleah.

“The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.”

As happy as receiving this award made me, the very best part was reading Meleah’s reason for giving it to me:

Nicky @ We Work For Cheese because I am TOTALLY In love with her, and I might even have a *girl crush* on her.” My response was to slobber kisses at her and swear my undying love. Then it occurred to me that I have currently declared my love for/crush on at least 3 other bloggers. I have become quite the tramp since I started blogging.

Sure. Since I started blogging.

In any case, there are caveats to accepting this award. Ones that I will try my best to uphold, but being an Aquarian, I do have considerable difficulty following instructions.

1. Put the logo on your blog and/or within your post. – Check, at least as far as putting it in this post. It will go in the sidebar as soon as Mike puts it there for me since I have no idea how to do that.
2. Pass the award on to twelve bloggers. – Check, tough to keep it down to just 12 but I did it, see below
3. Link to the nominees within your post. – Check, see below.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog. – I’ll probably start doing this, but then get totally sidetracked over at Ziva’s blog because she’s sleeping see, so it starts as a comment and ends as a party with a skeleton hanging from the chandelier. There are cookies, and Linda brings cocktails so you can understand how things get outta hand fairly quickly.
5. Share the love and the link to the person from whom you received this award – Check, did that in the intro and in Meleah’s comment section, and will undoubtedly do it again in future posts and comments because I really am such a tramp.
 
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…the Award goes to:
 
MikeWJ, one of my crushes, because he’s creative, funny and makes us look so popular by leaving tons of comments in every post
Frank Lee Meidere because he is fascinating, smart and we’re neighbours so he doesn’t think I’ve misspelled neighbours, or colours or cheques.
Chinaren because he’s funny and sweet
Ratty because I never really saw the beauty of nature until I saw his pictures
Linda, another love of mine, because she really is a ray of sunshine in my life
Jayne because she is just so damn talented
Jen because it seems to me that this award was created specifically for her
Margaret because she thinks of zombies when looking out at Lake Tahoe
Ziva, my love, because she wants to change the world one time zone at a time
Katherine because she has such a big heart
Mike and Jepeto because without them, my world would totally suck monster moose cocks. Seriously.

  • Ha! I wasn’t sleeping this time! And I am so happy I wasn’t because this is the sweetest thing ever. I just want to pick your little purple condom-wearing avatar up and hug her until the condom breaks and Jake gets a new sister or brother. Have I told you I love you? Sorry about the slobbering, I do that when I get excited..

    Thank you a million times, sweet Nicky, you have a very special place in my dark little heart, and you, if anyone, definitely deserve this award.

    Now, off to enjoy my award and google “monster moose cock”.

  • First of all, congrats on receiving the award. Richly deserved. And thank so much for your kind words. Just the fact that you enjoy what I write and always take the time to leave such thoughtful comments is all the award I need. (Although I did turn you on to Cotswold cheese so that’s got to be worth something.) 😉

  • Oh Darling Nicky! If it wasn’t for you, I would have just let all my brains leak out a long time ago! You are the daughter I’ve been missing! (I have one daughter, Sheila, but I knew I was supposed to have another one.) Nicky you are a ray of sunshine in an otherwise cloudy sky. And I’m so excited that you and your kids are coming to live with me and Alex and Honey and Harry and Smokey! We shall have such fun!

  • I am deeply honored (that’s honoured in Canadian) to receive this award, although if anybody knew how black my poor heart truly was, they’d never give me a sunshine award in a billion years.

    What’s more important to me than the award, though, is learning that I’m one of your crushes. That makes me feel pretty good, because I haven’t had a purple condom wearing red sunglasses have a crush on me for a long time. Ever, actually. One thing about it does trouble me, though: All of your other crushes seem to be on women, which makes me question my identity. Am I gay, and if I am, how gay am I? I hope it’s not flaming gay, because all that hand waving gets really irritating. Maybe I’m just a little gay, like metrosexual gay. I feel so confused….

  • Now Mike, I also think Nicky and Ziva are way hotter than Angelina Jolie. Does that make me gay or just smart? I have to ask the question.

  • The rate your going Nicky you will either have to create a new page to house all your awards or learn to Photoshop them down to little bitty icons do they can all fit onto your sidebar. But whichever it is, you certainly deserve all of them. Oh and by the way a Very Happy Mothers day to you 🙂

    Jayne – Thank you and it really was the least I could do to repay you for the Cotswold!

    Linda – And that’s exactly why I love you 🙂

    MikeWJ – Your black heart brightens my day, my friend. And I announced my crush on you and Ziva ages ago, somewhere on one of our blogs – I don’t remember which one. It doesn’t make you gay, it makes me bisexual, so stop waving your bony hands around already!

    Linda – Definitely smart. Like MENSA smart. And sexy. 🙂

  • Congratulations on the award, but as for passing it along to me — well, I’m not sure you have a complete grasp of my blog.

    You do know that the name of my blog is “I Don’t Give A Damn,” right? And that I changed it from its previous name of “I Probably Don’t Like You”? That I have dumped on such iconic figures as David Suzuki, Al Gore, and Oprah Winfrey? That I have written scathingly about positive thinkers, sports fans, men, women, and Canadians (still haven’t got around to that post on Americans yet)? You understand that I despise the metric system, don’t like liberals and can’t stand conservatives?

    Sunshine Award? Sure. Why not? At least I know the correct way to spell “colour.”

    Thanks, Nicky. And congratulations.

  • Frank – I get it. I really do. I have no idea how many metres tall I am. I trash most people, iconic or not. I pretty much hate all politicians. You don’t have to give a damn. And you don’t even have to like me (although it would be nicer if you did, ’cause I like you). To earn this award you just have to brighten my day. Which you do.

    The spelling is just a bonus. 🙂

  • Linda, you can’t put Nicky, Ziva and Angelina in the same sentence. My poor black heart–if I had one, that is–can’t take that much beauty, intelligence, grace and raw sexual energy all at once without being encased in a lead box first.

    Nicky, so now Ziva’s your favorite, eh? I thought you’d had children; you’re supposed to tell them all that they’re your favorite, but privately, so they can gloat well into adulthood. Still, I’ve got my crush–my precious–to cherish, and that’s enough for me. I’d actually forgotten you’d announced it a while back. I’m going senile, I guess, which is okay, because you can just tell me the same things over and over again and I’ll always think you’re witty and wonderful. And no need to explain your personal preferences; despite my confusion, I think I might be just a tad metrosexual. I do like decorating shows an awful lot, and usually watch at least 2-3 cooking shows a week. I also throw in a hockey game or two just to mix it up a little. Sometimes, I even switch back and forth. So I guess we’re all a little bi deep inside. Or even not so deep inside.

    Frank, you’re such a grouch. Or pretend to be. I love you, brother, but in a really negative way that fits with our world view, which is that most people suck. I mean, hell, I’m dead guy writing. I must not give a damn at least as much you do. Or don’t. I’m not sure which one is correct here, but I’m sure you understand.

  • Lemmikki! I love that, Nicky! It’s perfect.

    Linda, I agree with Nicky, it definitely makes you very smart. And a little bisexual, but aren’t we all bisexual deep down inside? Except perhaps Mike, who’s too busy being confused to be bisexual.

    Mike, of course I’m Nicky’s favourite, I have cookies AND I’m hot. And I can speak Canadian if I try really hard. It doesn’t get any better than that. Except if I were living on the other side of the pond… Yeah, that would make it better…

    You, Mike, are my favourite undead writing skeleton in the whole world. Ziva is my favourite 3-armed green Finnish girl. Now go clean your room.

    Ziva – I knew it wouldn’t be long until I found the right nickname 🙂

    Terry – Hey Sis! You have been here, and I have visited you as well! I just didn’t recognize you (ezmomm) over at Mom’s. Now that we’ve straightened that out, can I borrow your new blouse?
