When Awards Attack!!! – The Final Conflict

In my previous post, I attempted to engage in a three on one, and I must confess that I failed. It was just more than my strength and stamina could handle. But seeing as how I’ve been a monogamous kinda guy since the 1980s, well maybe this isn’t such a bad thing. Now I know for sure that I’m at my best in a one on one relationship, and it’s best for me to just recognize my weaknesses, while being grateful for my strengths.

So no more of this business of trying to accept three awards all in one post! Yes, I’m taking about blogging awards here. What else would I be talking about, huh? Oh, that? Let’s not get overwhelmed with an incoming flood of silliness and swept away here! That kind of three on one is best left to male porn stars, and guys who lie a lot about their exploits. Since I am neither a porn star, or a guy who lies a lot, (no really! trust me here!) let’s make it clear that this is all about the awards, and nothing to do with that other thing.

So, without any more dicking around, let’s move on to the next award.

                                                           Ooops! Wrong award!!!

This is the award that is supposed to come up next! Sorry about that!

The Liebster Blog Award has been graciously and generously shared with me by Lynda of benzeknees

Please check out Lynda’s blog because she’s always a good read on a wide variety of topics. Congratulations on your award Lynda, and thanks so much for sharing it with me!

For the Liebster Award I have been instructed to do the following:

  1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them
  2. Reveal your top 6 picks for the award & let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
  3. Post the award on your blog
  4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogosphere – other bloggers
  5. And best of all – have fun & spread the karma

I’ve already given thanks, so let’s give some recognition to those six deserving bloggers! As I mentioned in my previous post, if you’ve already received a Liebster Award, well then just consider yourself to be twice as deserving as before. And don’t feel obligated to do anything with the award, other than to just enjoy it, and know that I think that your blog is well worth my time to read, and I think others should have the chance to enjoy your work.

So in no particular order, here’s my six picks:

Life In The Farce Lane (you really didn’t think that you were going to come out of this thing unscathed now, did you? lol)

Great Martin

Misadventures in Cleveland Dating

The Thought Experiment   (more for the men than the ladies)

Societal Confusion

Ramblings And Rumblings

Now back to check that award check list, cause this blogging awards stuff is serious business people, and I want to get it right!

I’ve already posted the award on my blog, I’m now basking in the love, and yes I’m having fun with it… which is why I’m now going to have fun by making a slight modification to my Liebster Award.

Behold! The Lobster Award! Cause if the Liebster Award is about something you love, well then I really do love Maine lobster, which is why I’ve decided to turn my Liebster into a Lobster! Mmmm… now that’s good! :-)

The final award for today, and probably for a very long time, after going through all this, is The 7 x 7 Link Award.

The 7 x 7 Link Award has been graciously and generously bestowed upon me by Frederique of Life In The Farce Lane (Freddette, if I misspelled your name, just tell me, and I’ll fix it.) Anyone who is reading this, will do themselves a major favor by reading Fred’s blog because she is funny, outrageous, irrepressible and delightful! As well as intelligent and insightful, so what more could you ask for?

According to the conditions of this award, I am obliged to do the following:

  • Tell everyone something that no one else knows about;
  • Link to one of my posts that I personally think best fits the following categories:  Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful Piece, Most Popular Piece, Most Controversial Piece, Most Surprisingly Successful Piece, Most Underrated Piece, and Most Pride-worthy Piece; and
  • Pass this award on to seven other bloggers.

My seven picks, in no particular order are:

Bucket List Publications

Peg-o-Leg’s Ramblings


The Mental Ward

Live, Nerd, Repeat

World Music – the Music Travel


Again, no one needs to feel obligated to do anything with this award, which I’m sure that some of you have already received. It’s just my way of saying thanks for your part in making my experience in the blogosphere more meaningful, enlightening and fun! :-)

Tell everyone something that no one else knows about? – Okay, I’m really a woman pretending to be a man, and I’ve done an excellent job of fooling my wife about the nature of my true gender for 24 years now. No one knows about this, because it isn’t true – not one single word of it. If I was really a woman, I wouldn’t lie to you, and what more proof do you need than that?

Links to my posts per award instructions:

Most Beautiful Piece: You’re Magic

Most Helpful Piece: Dissing V-Day in a Humorous Way

Most Popular Piece: 40 MISTAKES MEN MAKE

Most Controversial Piece: Getting Wood

Most Surprisingly Successful Piece: Staring at Her Elephant

Most Underrated PieceBAD MOOD ON THE RISE!

Most Pride-worthy Piece: Hawaiian Misadventure

Are we done here? I think that we are most definitely done here. I’m gonna go look for my wife and see if she still remembers who I am, and whether or not we’re still married.

Have a great afternoon and an even better evening, and thanks for reading!

  1. You’re like my PR manager, should I be afraid of any official looking window envelopes from stateside any time soon? Cos this bill is gonna be biiiiig ;)

    • Just ship me that espresso maker and we’ll be even. Hey, I don’t come cheap, or I don’t come at all. Which reminds me of something a woman once told me, but that’s another story… Lol ;-)

    Almost got my award right–almost!

  3. Feel free to send me an actual lobster award anytime, my friend. I will take care of the drawn butter on my end, though.

  4. Elyse says:

    Congratulations and thanks, Chris. Especially for not making me do anything! But I’d love a bite or two of that lobster, too.

    • Thanks, and you are most welcome! :-) And hey, if you don’t make me do anything, I’ll continue to not make you do anything. See? There’s a method to my madness! Lol ;-)
      And you love lobster too? See my reply above to “She Speaks”.

      • Elyse says:

        Where in Coastal Maine? My header picture is of Mount Dessert Island. BTW, I love yours above. Beautiful picture!

        • In South Harpswell, which is close to Brunswick, ME and Bowdoin College.
          I thought that was Mt Dessert Island! I was going to ask you, but I forgot. My wife and I have been going to Acadia National Park for years and we love it there.
          Thanks for the compliment on my header picture – I took that in Hawaii in 2002.

    congrats Chris, you deserved this award!

  6. pegoleg says:

    Thanks for the shout out, Chris – I really appreciate it! I’m sitting by my mailbox with a bib and drawn butter at the ready, eagerly waiting for my lobster to arrive. Could I have some chocolate to go with that?

    • You are most welcome Peg! :-) Boy, as they say in the ad biz, this lobster award thing has got legs and is ready to run! And you want me to give you chocolate too? Careful – you’ll make my wife jealous! Lol ;-)

  7. snarkysnatch says:

    You know I am going to snatch that award for my blog don’t you? Great Post my friend!

    • You go right ahead, because it’s an equal opportunity award – Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman. ;-) Thanks for stopping by!

      • snarkysnatch says:

        Well you know Chris, I would rather earn such an award. Come to think of it…. why haven’t I yet? You know they don’t call it a blow JOB for nothing!

        • Well, now if my “casting couch” days weren’t over, I’d definitely audition you for a JOB, and if you’re as good as I think you are, well you’d earn quite a reputation as well as an award for a job well done! And if I keep this up, it will be over done instead of medium rare the way I like it, as in warm and pink inside… Lol ;-)

    You must be exhausted after all that intense awards acceptance.

    So many blogs to read. When will I find the time? I need to read as many as possible before international corporations can monetize my every move.

    • Yes, it’s true that blog award acceptance with multiple partners can be an exhausting experience. But I must continue to rise to the challenge in order to defend my Alpha Blogger status, before that day comes when I am finally run off from the herd, and then old and weak, I am devoured by ravenous wolves, and all that’s left of me are a few old and bleached white bones scattered upon the frozen tundra.
      Thanks for stopping by, and yes, by any and all means – stay out ahead of those monetizing international corporations!
