awards day here at dad-thedude headquarters

Time for a little housekeeping, with Ike knocking on our door, needing to get a haircut and take out the trash I've slipped in my duties the past couple of days.

I would like to thank the Academy and to all those who didn't believe in me... well, you were in good company.

To my high school english teacher who considered it sport to flunk me over and over again, I say - thank god for spell-check, huh?

To my typing teacher who never figured out why every typewriter I sat at suddenly didn't work, I say - check the springs on the keyboard next time. Thanks for having me just read the typing book, that helped...

Everyone grab a glass of champagne. I would like to the toast the following:

Lisa's Twisted Blog

Lisa is apparently more twisted than anyone actually knew, because in her twistedness she presented me with the Arte y pico. I've never won an award before, but now I've not only won one I've won an international one with a cool name. Thanks Lisa!

This award recognizes a blog's creativity & overall contribution to the blogger community.
The original Arte y pico site is here (my spanish sucks btw).

Here are the rules once you receive this award:

1.) Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material & overall contribution to the blogger community.

2.) Post the name of the author & a link to his or her blog so everyone can view it.

3.) Each award winner has to show the award & put the name & link to the blog that has given him or her the award

4.) The award winner & presenter should post the link of the "Arte y pico" blog so everyone will know the origin of the award.

5.) Post these rules

I hereby nominate the following sites in return:

The Soccer Mom Files - one of the first blogs I started reading when this whole thing started.

It's a Funny Thing - Don cracks me up when I need it most and he just posted a cover of Playboy which is sure to get me to return to his blog often.

A Guys Guide to Oprah - yea, you read that right. Oprah reviewed the way it should be.

The Humor Smith Chronicle - I steal this guys ideas all the time.

Beyond Left Field - smart people shouldn't blog unless they link to me.

Speaking of Beyond Left Field...

He screwed up and nominated me for the Brillante Weblog - Premio-2009

2) Add a link to the person who you received the award from.
3) Nominate up to 7 other blogs.

I hereby present this award to the following well deserving bloggers:

Debbie Does Drivel

Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder

Wits Bitch

Magick Sandwich



The Lost News

Angie over at Keep Believing is drunk posting.

Only reason I can think of that she would nominate me for the Sunny, Happy, Funny award. For the record I'm one out of the three. Thanks Angie!

Crotchety Old Man Yells at Cars

Has presented me with the coveted Zucchini Award.

Thanks dude!


Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

ugh man, I've known too many dudes my entire life that tried so hard to show off their coveted zuccini award to anyone that would partake.

Now, I'm off to read a guys guide to oprah because I think it has to be the best way to view Oprah who I cant stand.
