Good news! Condition upgraded to Meh!

So much to take care of.

First, thank you to everyone for all the kind words of the last few days. It really means a lot to me.

To any new readers, I apologize for not being particularly funny lately. It seems fear of my heart exploding has made me slightly off.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me for Humorblogger of the Year. I won in my catagory, and I'm not sure when the next step is. Either way, I'm pretty darned happy and appreciative.

What else? Oh yes, the caption contest winner was delayed. So, I'm going to give a really short version of the wrap up.

Hey Ramon, you constipated? Looks like it! Wait, I see a polyp too.
by Don

Second place went to Reforming Geek, and 3rd was Lord Loser

Great captions and votes were also earned by Kalos, Free the Unicorns, Fly, Mike, Shaxx, The Hawg, Dwayne, MA Fat Woman

I should be back to my regular routine. Catch up with you all tomorrow.

Congrats on the Humor Blogger Of The Year in your category and good luck on winning the whole thing!!!

Donnie said...

Thanks Joe. I think this was my first entry so just lucky I guess. Although seeing some guys face planted in another's ass apparently inspires me to greatness.
I hope that you get back on track soon with that aforementioned ailment...

Is this related to diabetes? I'm starting to get very "down" about it as nothing is helping and I'm trying to decide whether to keep fighting or just go " "meh" hand me a cookie and stand back."

We live with "meh" so when you get to the point of complaining, then I'll know you're getting better.
