Makin' It Rain...

...with awards.  What?  Did you think I was some NFL star showering a stripper with twenties?  Get real...

Special award to the first person who gets this.
The past week has been a shower of awards for my blog, so if you are some scout for a big blogging website or an online magazine reading this...put this on your scouting report, bitch.  OK, I take the bitch part back, I'm sorry, for now.  Let me take you down my award trail the past week:

  1. Fabulous Award Ribbon
  2. Dude Write Diamond Club Winner
  3. Dude Write Chairman's Choice Winner
  4. Liebster Award

I woke up this morning to find I have been presented with my second Liebster Award.  If you recall a few months ago I was presented this as my first award for my blog.  Well here I am once again, honored with the Liebster Award.  Again, it seems like every award that is created in the blogosphere has a catch to it.  But first I need to thank my presenter.  I stumbled upon her blog looking for a drink recipe, that's a lie, but she does give out some really, REALLY good drink recipes.  I would like to thank the female version of Larry David, Mod Mom Beyond IndieDom.  She is a rocker chick, with a husband (who's got the best first name ever) and kids, plus she has a neon vagina...what?  I've seen the picture.

OK, now here's the catch and actually looking at the catch, this has changed, last time I didn't have to post 5 random things about me...oh well, I guess I have to play well with others.

  1. Choose 5 up and coming blogs to pass the Liebster Award onto.  These blogs must have less than 200 followers.  Let them know in a comment on their blog
  2. Show your thanks and appreciation to the blogger that gave you the award by linking back to them.
  3. Share five random facts about yourself.
  4. Post the award to your blog.
Random Facts About....Me!

  1. My favorite pizza is bacon and black olives.
  2. I have never gone to the bathroom in a moving vehicle.
  3. I was born with one kidney.
  4. I have had the pleasure of meeting, chatting and musing with Kevin Eastman, one of the REAL creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  5. I once drank beer with the Mayor of Northampton, MA.
And now, without further ado, I grant the prestigious Liebster Award to the following bloggers and yes I know that they probably already have this award:
  1. The Six-Fingered Monkey
  2.  Semi-coherent Thoughts
  3. Good Youngman Brown
  4. workingdan
  5. Living in Kellie's World
So with this prestigious award presented to you, I now task you the responsibility of accepting the Liebster Award, spouting five random craptoids about yourselves and nominating five blogs.  Have fun.

Oh, and don't forget to head over to Dude Write and read the musings and stories of the dudes of the blogosphere, this ain't your momma's blog.

  1. Thanks for the most excellent multiple shout outs Kevin! It's raining blog awards = Hallelujah! Well deserved!

    1. Thanks and you deserve the awards too!

  2. Thanks very much for the award, kind sir. Very glad to have found your blog via DudeWrite.

    1. I too am glad to have found your blog, great writings and my pleasure for the awarding the...award.

  3. You go boy! You deserve them. I am however wondering if your parents were still using horse-drawn buggies when you were born or if you were just potty trained at birth, cause I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to say I never shit myself in a moving vehicle during the diaper stage.

    1. If you ever saw where I grew up you would not be asking would be a given...but if you want to get technical, after potty training I never used the bathroom on a moving vehicle...smartass.

    2. Kevin, that was not very nice! But yes, I do resemble that remark!

  4. Award received! Come see how I proudly displayed it on my blog!

  5. I've just downloaded iStripper, so I can watch the hottest virtual strippers on my desktop.
