*well these are going to be interesting to check out….hope they’re layman’s terms!!!

I’m surprised by some of the placings, but asides from having 1. been nominated (and many werent that could/should have been), a lot of it, as we know, is how many friends you can round up to vote for you. i have one friend , an imaginary one, but i did spend all my allowance on bribes to group therapy participants listed on the web. there’s going to be a lot of rubber cheques bouncing around the banks.

It’s all in fun, yet even so, if you look at the amount of Canadian blogs nominated, there’s an aspect that’s quite deep…so many people are not going by mainstream media anymore and the numbers are growing. So good for My Blahg for doing all this work, and let’s all keep on a’blogging becaue it’s more then just a personal outlet , IT’S IMPORTANT. Awards or not, I stay loyal to my blogroll as they’re damn fine people with great blogs!

oh, and keep voting for me, the cracks about rubber cheques was just joking, honest….the money’s in the mail and the paper’s good. heh, um, think i’ll slink out of the room now…..

Eddie and Lumpy Pick on The Beav Taking Care of Business


  • 1. Wandering Coyote  |  November 22, 2006 at 4:12 pm

    Congratulations, Scout! I didn’t even know this was going on. The only other blog I’ve heard of in your lists is The Strouboulopouli, who I link to, too.

  • 2. havril  |  November 22, 2006 at 4:16 pm

    Congrats, Scoutyone! You deserve it. You obviously had more dead people on your side, or at least ones that were better mummified.

    As I said back at my place, I have some freakin’ hilarous ideas for an ad campaign against that Mercer bastard. I’ll get you a TV show by the time we are done. Is cable access okay? And, will you let me do the movie reviews?

  • 3. harpervalley  |  November 22, 2006 at 4:27 pm

    coyote….well, i haven’t been the best promoter in the world…but ah, now that ya know VOTE!!! once a day…tell your friends and i’ll send them rubber, er, i mean, certified cheques πŸ™‚

    havril, thanks. i already conceded to you though. that means you’re in it with me now to put mercer and that rami the minx in their place. we don’t have tv shows, we don’t sell products with our blog on it…..and most of all YOU CAN COMMENT ON OUR SITES!!!

    however, we can still do an ad campaign against them and cable access is fine…..what, i’ll be on channel 340 or something? you can do the movie reviews plus co-star….how about producing, do you smoke cigars???

  • 4. Q  |  November 22, 2006 at 5:11 pm

    Congrats scout, excellent first round! Pretty good for having fun?
    That raymi’s a little brat πŸ˜‰ I know her poor mom.

  • 5. Sheena  |  November 22, 2006 at 5:38 pm

    Yabbut Scout, after we wipe the floor with the awards, we can START selling stuff on our sites… right?

  • 6. JJ  |  November 22, 2006 at 5:57 pm

    Congratulations scout, that’s awesome! You and Sheenavision were the only ones I voted for that made it:( Is this it? Do we vote for the top 5 or whatever now?

  • 7. harpervalley  |  November 22, 2006 at 6:47 pm

    Q, thanks…..and all in many a day’s fun πŸ˜€ ya, who knows what could happen in round two??? oh no, i checked out raymi’s blog and hoo , wouldn’t want to be her mom….mind you i wouldn’t have wanted to have been my mom πŸ™‚

    Sheena, oh, er, right of course!!! let’s see….we have to be a bit ‘differnt’ how about butt plugs?

    JJ, thanks, i have no idea what takes place now….i dont know, the number six keeps leaping at me but maybe because i like a half dozen. i posted four here as that’s a special number.

  • 8. Sheena  |  November 22, 2006 at 7:12 pm

    I feel like Amber in Drop Dead Gorgeous.

  • 9. Dave  |  November 22, 2006 at 7:53 pm

    Congrats Scout! Looks like we’ll both be in round 2 in different categories. Way to go! I’ll be pushing for you in both your categories.

  • 10. Saskboy  |  November 22, 2006 at 9:08 pm

    I’ve endorsed you for Humour, and maybe we can work out some kind of over the top cross blog promotion for the coming week?

  • 11. Robert McClelland  |  November 22, 2006 at 9:37 pm

    I won’t catch up to Mercer

    Round 2 is a completely new vote. So right now you’re tied with Mercer.

  • 12. harpervalley  |  November 22, 2006 at 10:08 pm

    sheena…..i don’t know what movie or tv show you’re talking about….does this mean i’m fired?

    dave….thanks, and congrats to you too….i’ll keep pumping for you….was that ‘best religious blog’? joking, joking!!!

    saskboy, whooooo….coress blog promo….is that like cross dressing, if so, count me in…….and i still think you should have won the new fridge. seriously, it still bothers me.

    robert……well, interesting perspective!!!! can you make it so i’m tied-up with mercer….he’s kinda cute. thanks for all the work on this….i’m sure you’ve been in html hell.

  • 13. Saskboy  |  November 22, 2006 at 10:13 pm

    An email is headed your way Scout with details on how we’ll beat Mercer πŸ˜‰ In the competition, not with clubs.

  • 14. Sheena  |  November 23, 2006 at 10:42 am

    I confess to being a bit bummed out in the light of day. I mean, Raymi is the main competition in the personal blog category, and well, I’m just getting too old for titty pictures of my self and stories about my twat. Sigh. Maybe I should just pack it in. Or maybe challenge the others to an all-candidates debate.

  • 15. JJ  |  November 23, 2006 at 3:35 pm

    Sheena – It’s easy — just get yourself a myspace page, round up 2 or 3,000 “myspace friends”, and post a message at the top telling them to vote for you. Seems to work. {eye-roll}

    Seriously, I know myblahg puts in a lot of work on it and that’s great, but the voting process needs to be revisited.

  • 16. Sheena  |  November 23, 2006 at 5:30 pm

    No way, JJ. Every new myspace page is a nickel in the jar of the Rupert Murdoch retirement fund.

    I’ll just have to do this the old fashioned way and hire a hacker.

  • 17. harpervalley  |  November 23, 2006 at 10:57 pm

    saskboy,no clubs? i thought, you know, maybe we could have a few nights out on the town.

    sheena, don’t mind rami the gerbil. with our scheme of steve autographed butt plugs, we’re bound to pull it off for sure. plus i’ve got a tatoo of che guevera done in cuba and that beats out her twat anyday. i’m sure you told me once you have castro tatooed on your butt, didn’t you?

    what’s this myspace stuff? jj, you and sheena know scout is slow on the draw. ok, i think i got it now. hmmm. i think saskboy said he hacks for blowjobs, but i retired my lips after 25 years of marriage…in fact their hanging over there on the wall. that’s why i blog, i can’t talk.

  • 18. Doh!raymi  |  November 23, 2006 at 11:08 pm

    This is Dohraymi the Gerbil. I just smoked some crack and a joint and shot a deer. I checked out all your blogs and you’re lame ass middle age retards. I have product, do you hear me, PRODUCT. And my twat rules.

    I put a lot of effort into exploiting myself and my fan base. Try catering to the pubescent crowd, they love to vote. And quit talking politics, as though that’s important. HAH, not when you’ve got szie 38 DD’s ready to pull your back out of shape and make you a cripple by the time I’m your age.

    Eat my tasty shit.

  • 19. Sheena  |  November 24, 2006 at 3:26 am

    Well, I’m not ready to tell stories about my twat, so I’m talking about Barbara Bush’s snatch instead over at sheenavision.

  • 20. Saskboy  |  November 24, 2006 at 6:37 am

    MySpace is awesome. If you don’t have a MySpace page, I’ve heard it on go authority that you’re “gay”, a “loser”, ” or even a “square”.
    I made a MySpace page because I didn’t want to be a square. It’s so good, it’s baddd

  • 21. harpervalley  |  November 25, 2006 at 7:52 pm

    saskboy, i don’t know….i may remainan L 7, or not.
