Award Season!

This time of year, Los Angeles is a-buzz with award ceremonies. Seeing people get awards inspires me to...well, give out some awards!

The Bringing the Funny Award goes to:


Woman, you crack me up! I can only imagine what a girls' night out with you would be like. If I had my way, What is Stupid? would be on every bookshelf in the nation. Hooray for Volume II!

The Deserves It and More Award goes to:


Bob, I can't tell you how happy I am that you got that job up there in the Frozen North. Cheers to you for hanging on to your dreams for a better situation, and even more cheers for doing something to bring them about. And for cheering us on at the same time? Hugs!

The You Can't Stop Her And Why Would You Want To Award goes to:


She breaks her head, she breaks her ankle, but she never breaks her promises to her ferals. She tells me I suck, but she loves me anyway. You know you do, Suz. When's the garden party???

The Best Use of Facebook Award goes to:


I spend too much time trying to be witty with my Facebook updates. And here we have Karen, doing it effortlessly. And she lets it all hang out. Woman, the only reason I don't comment on everything you say is because I can't take the swarm of messages that I get if I do. I wish I could be so forthright.

The When Does Your Novel Come Out Because I Wants It Now Award goes to:


We're all damn good, but I think Leah is our best writer, and I'm not afraid to say so! You read her posts, you get sight, sound, taste, touch,'re transported!

The How Does She DO It Award goes to:


She works some insane hours and yet she's always there for her boys and for us when we need her. If I had some free time to give away, she'd be the first to get it. If it wasn't for...


I can't find a photo that does her justice. I can't find words to do her justice....but Bob, I can think of an award that is LONG past due.

Congratulations to all our winners! (Goes and stands behind the bar with Gig while you all dance around. "Giggie, we know what we know.")

If I don't get a comment on this pretty soon, I'm taking them all back.

Don't take them back! I'm commenting! I'm commenting!!!

Megan, you are HI-LAR-I-OUS! And you have wonderful timing. How did you know that we all needed that little pick me up?

I am truly astounded by how we all came together in this little dump..err, I mean bar and connected. And we all STAY connected too. Suze is the one who is always saying she loves everybody, but I gots to say it now, I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! Thank you Megan for this, you really made my day!

You are pretty Megarific in your own right Megs. I can't wait for any or all of you to make your way to the Midwest to see what we're building out here. Bemidji is a special city, the Event Center will be a special place, and all of you are a special group of friends.



Megan said...

Oops. Forgot Zack.

IV, you get the Please Blog More award. :)

Suzanne said...

"I'M HERE. I'M HERE!!!!" Almost didn't make it. Tripped over a guy in a black trench coat at the entrance holding a bottle, a cigarette and still wearing his Santa cap. He was talking to a very big breasted lady. Luckily her boobs broke my fall. Sorta like bouncing off a trampoline. Saved my life. Oh, she'll be fine eventually, but may need medical attention, STAT! "IV, can you get right on the honey." Yes, dear, I did recongnize you. Even without your trench coat open.

*Steps up to podium in black strappy dress and sexy sling backs (!), flicks mic with middle finger* "I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my "Blogging Peeps" for making this day possible. Without you I'd still be over in Paris wondering where the hell 1-Pic went!!!! Fortunately all of you rescued me from a life of misery and CSI took an extended "holiday" allowing us to invaded his blog, for well... MONTHS!!! And loved every second so much Cece created The Wild Onion. We're a lucky bunch of bandits to have this place, these awards, these amazing friends. We've weathered everything together and will continue to. I love my award Megs, and love you for your care, kindness, understanding, consideration and especially for overlooking all my flaws. You're the BEST BABY!" *Suze exits on beautifully embellished crutches."

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO Blottie #1 bows to Blottie #3!!! ;)

P.S. Congrats to all my peeps who won awards and to those who support us. Let's bartend tonight and let Giggie and Megs relax and drink their Lemon Drops!

Karen ^..^ said...

Awwww, TOO CUTE!!! Oh, and the secret to fewer notifications is this: I have all my notifications sent to an email address I rarely use, so I go in once a month and clean 'em all out. I only respond to my notifications on FB. I can't handle the swarm of emails either!!!

Thank you, Megarific, and it's all so spot on!!!

My name is Karen, and I am a facebook addict. Hold your 12 step program, I'm not interested. Hah!!!

Leah said...

This is so sweet and makes me feel so happy we all know each other, like RC said.

This place is really our little place, and I love the fact that it is still here just waiting for us.

Megan, the awards are fab! Is it okay that I really really love mine?


Cece said...

I could use the extra time. I think I am going to petition the President and ask for 30 hour days instead of 24.

Suzanne said...

No Leah...that's not okay. That's greedy! ;) HA!!! What? I'm a wee bit tipsy after 3 hours behind the bar. God, how many more do I have to be here?!

Suzanne said...

Megs, I forgot to mention...I LOVE YOU. So rushed back here because you don't suck. Well maybe just that once!!! ;)

Megan said...

Hi guys and gals! I'm feeling a bit bad now about not giving the Gigster an award of her own.

Still, she gets to hang out with me, so that's reward enough, right? Right?!?


Gig said...

HEY!!! Anybody Here????? * shoots back another lemon drop...* Yee Haw!! What an Awards Party this has been!! Awesome job Megs!!

I feel blessed to include everyone here to be part of my extended Family!! I think we do need to have a Reunion to meet each other some day!! Until then...we always have Our Wild Onion Cafe to hang out and do as we please....*Suzanne!! Stop swinging from the Disco Ball*

Megs....I am honored to hang out with you anytime, anywhere!! You bring the Toast and I will bring the Bacon!!
Love youn all!! Gig

Leah said...
