Sunday Morning Blues

I've been working so hard for youse this week. I even wrote a couple of posts that required me to write them in advance and pay attention to grammar and spelling.

You may have noticed posting quality was up a full 14% this week. Usually I just bang them out during Colbert, and post around midnight, but no, I worked on them. You received a full week's worth of carefully crafted, properly structured blog posts. You could have used them for a class in diagramming sentences, they were that well done.
Any typos were put there to test my readers. You all passed admirably. Well done, faithful readers.

I just wanted to catch you up on a couple things.

I promise not to be a long drawn out awards ceremony.

I recently received the Amyoops Award again


The award was started by Amy of

This time the award came from The Lost News

This is a very well done blog, and very different from most comedy blogs. It's easier to ask you to check it out rather than try to explain it.

I also received it from my buddy Tommy of email rubbish at

This is a fairly new blog and Tommy posts some of the junk email that he gets. It is extremely funny stuff, but it is for over age 18.

You know there is a bunch of rules, but I'm going to break them.

I really appreciate the awards. Unfortunately, with these awards I'm required to pick 5 for each, and I have 2, so that's 10--oy. I usually dump them on present them to Jenn, but she has already mentioned that she would beat me senseless gently decline as she has received so many her mantle is overloaded and she spends most of her Saturdays dusting them. So, the problem becomes passing them on. Because I have, more or less, become a part of the humor blogger community, and we all try to support one another, we wind up just passing the awards to each other, and the awards seem to suffer from inbreeding.
Through awards, we are all nearly related to ourselves.

So, rather than pick any one, or five, or ten, I'm just going to list some great humor bloggers, and realize that any and all are deserving of an award.

Better still, here's a link to a new site that is almost ready to launch.

It's loaded with the best of the best. My buddy Chelle from Offended Blogger is the blog mistress in charge.

I'm a part of the group because I cried, bribed, blackmailed asked Chelle and she has a good heart. You will probably notice many of these blogs are already on my blogroll, because my buddies are the best.

Sometimes, I feel like


We're not worthy

Have a happy Sunday

@ Sandy: Colbert is must see TV.

@ Rubba: Thanks

@ HRH Momjeans: I'm hoping it's that, though most likely it's because I promised them snacks.

Ah, Joe- I do thank you for the lack of award, and will not have to inflict violence-- er, graciously accept-- so I am feeling particularly good. :)

Anyway, I don't blame you. I blame mainly Arte y Pico.

It makes you wonder how such nice sentiments can go so very, very, very wrong. :)

@ Jenn: I only did it because I'm afraid--I mean, you're so kind. LOL
