Egg Salad!

Note: I'm not a fan of memes, in general, so by participating in this awarding of Excellence, I in no way request that any of the awardees follow suit.  - Earl

I've been deemed Excellent by the NYC Watchdog over at A Pile of Dog Bones. Or at least my blog has. I'm more Mediocre in real life. See what being a comment whore can get you? I'm feeling a little undeserving, especially this week when I haven't really posted anything of substance. I mean, I haven't peed in the corner of a hotel room in quite a while.

Here are the rules (rules?) for being declared Excellent:

1. Identify the originator of this award, and link so she can get her well-deserved traffic. It’s Kayla at Project Mommy.
2. Pass on at least 10 Excellent Blog Awards.

Hmm...I really consider everyone in my blogroll to have excellent blogs. That's why they are on my blogroll. But I'll play by the rules. Here are ten (slightly random) excellent blogs from the larger set of awesomely excellent blogs on my blogroll in no particular order:

  1. ajooja
  2. Paige
  3. Elise
  4. Lotus07
  5. Slyde
  6. Liz
  7. White Rabbit
  8. RW
  9. Diva
  10. Tequila Mockingbird

And a special nod to Kat, in hopes that she will start blogging again. You're excellent, Kat!

Pass on the excellence folks! And I'll leave you with this quote from boxing legend Joe Lewis.

"I went on a diet, swore off drinking and heavy eating, and in 14 days I lost two weeks."

Have a great weekend.

Fantastic! I'm gald to see that even though there's no particular order (yeah whatever) I'm second on the list, I top Slyde AND Diva! Fuckin' Eh!

Tequila Mockingbird said...

thanks for putting me last asshole. jesus fucking christ.

just kidding. thanks for the award. i wont be playing by your silly rules though. i'm keeping this award, like i did the last four times i received it, and hoarding it like a squirrel hoards nuts. youd let me hoard your nuts, right?

Poppy said...

I played by the rules and did 16. (The rules said "at least 10". :D )

Seals said...

Woo hoo! Thanks for the excellence!

Slyde said...

now i must strive for the award for "SUPER excellence"

Verdant Earl said...

Paige - #2 with a bullet! ;)

Tequila - You were merely an afterthought. ;) And yes, you can hoard my nuts any time you want. Just be gentle.

Poppy - I fucking hate rules. ;)

ajooja - Most welcome.

Verdant Earl said...

Slyde - Calm down. I only tagged you because I hate to see you cry.

As a general rule, I don't do the whole Meme, award thing, advertise other folks blog thing. I had enough of that over at MySpace which is one of the reasons I left, not to mention the annoying pop-ups and the never ending invitations from porno sites.

But that never stops me from browsing the blogs that others say are good to see if I can't find interesting content. I never knew that the 'F' word could be used in every single sentence until I read Tequila Mockingbirds blog (sweet).

So I have looked thought this top 10 and found a few that are worth checking into. They will find out who they are by the comments that I will leave them. Hehehehe....

i am the diva said...

party on dudes.

elizabeth said...

Awww shucks... *blows cyber kisses*

Verdant Earl said...

Lotus - I usually start and end my memes by requesting, nay demanding, that the madness ends here.

Diva - We party on always! ;)

Liz - Ducks cyber kisses...I don't know where Spartan has been ;) (To emphasize the wink...i'm only kiddin' ya! - Earl)

white rabbit said...

You old smooth talker...

And truly your blog is the testicular parts of the canine creature :D

Verdant Earl said...

White Rabbit - Why thank you, sir!

RW said...

Wow... there's a shocker!

Tequila Mockingbird said...

afterthought my ass. i should be the first thing you think of; when you wake up in the morning with a boner, when you consider donating a peice of your liver, when you get your next tattoo (my initials on your scrote???), and when you name your spawn.

Verdant Earl said...

Tequila: My first thoughts, in order, would be 1) Thank God that still happens, 2) After all the damage I've inflicted on my liver over the years only the most desperate soul would wanna piece, 3) I'm hemming and hawing about getting a tat on my wrist...can't imagine the scrote and 4) NO SPAWN...EVER!!!

But you come in second in all cases. ;)

Elise said...

Oh B.E.Earl! I haven't even prepared a speach or anything. Um... I'd like to thank my family for supporting me all the way...


Thanks babe xx

Verdant Earl said...

Elise - You are most welcome!
