Just Us Girls

Um, yeah, about that whole blog award thing: I’ve just learned that I’m a wee bit ineligible, on account of... well, I’m a dude. The award is actually destined for the funniest female blogger. Which explains why there are so many mommy blogs in my category.

Not that I have anything against mommy blogs, mind you. Mommies are cool. In fact, I was raised by a mommy, and I turned out perfectly fine. Well-adjusted, even.

(cough)

I do appreciate the votes that came in, and I will totally sacrifice many goats in Yvonne’s honor for nominating me in the first place (she spilled). However, I will also demand written proof that she’s read all the fine print before I ever let her nominate me for anything else.

PS: With LoS out of the running, let’s make sure The Bloggess wins. Her am me favorite.

What if you put on a wig and re-enter the contest? My 8 foot tall friends could dress you up real purty.

Quix said...

The best part of this post is how you still proudly display the nominee banner on the sidebar. It is so hilarious I cannot get over it.

Evn said...

I'm going to leave the banner up until the winners are announced. I earned it.

Yvonne Rathbone said...

How about I keep nominating you for everything and I don't read nuthin'. I'm nominating you for a Stevie next. I'm thinking either Best New Service or Mentor Of The Year.

Yewtree said...

If said contest was male-only, there'd be an outcry. 'Nuff said.

Do they think women can't compete on a level playing field with men or something? Just sayin'...

Red Delicious said...

Yewtree makes a mighty fine point.

I also like Zemkat's solution, although I fear that would be a little unsettling for Jack.

Word verification - defstisi, which if said out loud sounds like ecstacy for the hearing impaired.

Jenny, the Bloggess said...

You can borrow my wig if you win. Also I think I might be technically ineligible too because I think I'm presenting that award. That would be awkward. "I'd like to present this award to me". It's pretty much like the organizers knew I wouldn't win. Also, I just looked at the voting totals and they are totally right.

Evn said...

Jenny, I'd be honored to wear your confidence wig. Actually, you may want to think about renting it out for photo ops.

Siobhan said...

oh, no, I am TOTALLY voting for Jenny. If only because watching her present the award to herself would be one of the funniest moments I've seen in a while.

Siobhan said...

Jenny, while you are certainly not doing BADLY, yeah, it's looking like CakeWrecks is a walk.

WVW: ladelo -- what Jenny should do for another year while her publicist rounds up readers and votes.

Siobhan said...

And another thing, Jenny -- you ARE winning "Most Provocative Blog"

I tried voting for you in "Blogs I've Learned The Most From" but I couldn't find yours listed for some reason. Which is a shame, because I've learned so much from you.

Evn said...

Jenny's up for "Most Provocative"?! Ooooh, I gotta go vote again...

Yvonne Rathbone said...

Jenny should win "Best Kick Ass Fucking Blog, DAMN!". And she'd have to give the award, too, because that would be awesome, that and a blowjob. And a centaur. A centaur would be really cool.

wv: obblumi - just sound it out.

The Bloggess rules, even in word verification.

knottybynature said...

Wait...I think I missed something.

Who's giving a centaur a blowjob?



fonscita: female spanish version of the Fonz.

Siobhan said...

We need to mobilize here -- Jenny's losing by 40 votes. If this keeps up, NO ONE is getting blowjobs, not even centaurs.

WVW: Filstes: what we need to do to the ballot box.

Evn said...

Knotty, Yvonne was just trying to cram as many Bloggess references as she could into one comment.

Siobhan, is she still in the top five?

Siobhan said...

Evn, She's #2 in most provocative -- down by about 40 votes. We can do this, people!

Evn said...

Yes, we can! But also, the judges will pick the winner from the five nominees with the most votes, so she's totally still in the running.

Siobhan said...

that's TOTES lame. And totally undemocratic. Damn judges.

Evn said...

But, it also means that the Bloggess is going to win. =)

Yvonne Rathbone said...

Well, PhDinParenting doesn't have anything about centaurs. Come to think of it, The Bloggess doesn't either as far as I know, but she does have a weird bobcat skull Chrstmas ornament with candy canes and a real bobcat tongue and that makes centaurs look about as cool as a pair of socks.

Siobhan said...

I dunno. I don't trust these judges.

Yvonne Rathbone said...

Knotty: Whoa Nelly! No one is giving the centaur a blowjob. The centaur is hung like a horse. That would not be a cool way to give an award for writing an awesome blog. That would suck.

The centaur is *giving* the blowjob. Jenny decreed, and I totally agree with her, that "blowjob" now means any kind of oral sex. So, for example, a husband can totally give his wife a blowjob and probably should on a regular basis especially if he likes to get blowjobs because giving is better than receiving.

Although I'm not sure that Jenny wants a blowjob from a centaur, but if not, she can always pass the coupon on to someone who does, like that cop that tried to pull her over for speeding. He totally needs a blowjob from a centaur.

knottybynature said...

Maybe we should just drop the blowjob references. Blowjobs really suck.

........

ANYWAY....I vote as I am asked by the following.

WOW... I got KINGSPAZ for my wv. What do you think THAT means???

heh.

Evn said...

Kingspaz = a hyperactive monarch who keeps knocking things over and bumping into walls and stuff, but no one can say anything about it on account of he's in charge. But behind his back, everyone's all, "Geez, what a kingspaz."
