Harper Valley and The Canadian Blog Awards

Scout says “Yippee!!!!” because she got 3rd in ‘best new blog’, 3rd in ‘best humour and 1st in ‘best blog post series – If Only They Were Normal’ (click gay Steve on sidebar).

Thanks to everyone who voted for me….those ruber cheques are in the mail. I’m happy because this is an accomplishment for me. When you fail beginner’s swimming twice it leaves a traumatic, boo hoo, excuse me, i’ve been thrown back to tradgedy. Sniffle, sniffle, I couldn’t have done this without bufoon world leaders. Thanks for fucking up the world, guys.

Thank you, Robert, for doing all the work!!! It stressed me out this week and I’ll send my therapist’s bill to you.

Best of all and what makes me most proud about my site is my community of links and the regulars who come to hassle me. It gives a whole new meaning to lithium.

Congrats to all the other winners, some are linked here and I’ll do a little note after I copy and paste things….but you can go to CBA and have a gander, newfoundland for yourself.

As for next year’s new category, the ‘Insert Something Clever’ Award, I understand Havril is donning his gown to accept the award from Robert (the ceremonies were held in Sudbury). In fact, yes, my live webcam is picking up an image of my fave funny guy now…..yes, it’s Havril looking very ‘enchante’, I think it’s a Stephane Dion thing……….we’ll wait for his speech….
*NOTE many thanks to Alison at Creekside and Annamarie at Verbena-19 for nominating me….there must have been another person but i have a head stuffed up full of snoggies and can’t remember (menopause excuse # 14). will that person kindly step forward?

    I’m so glad to be the first to congratulate you. You do a wonderful job here and even if I never win your Famous Stupid People contests, I wont hold it against you. I’ll never figure out how your mind works and I’m pretty sure it’s better that way. It’s just fun to be here with you.

  • 2. Saskboy  |  December 3, 2006 at 10:13 pm

    What image editor program do you use anyway? You forgot to thank them.

  • 3. harpervalley  |  December 3, 2006 at 11:01 pm

    bruce, aw, thanks sweetness :). i can’t figure out how my mind works either, so that makes at LEAST two of us.

    saskboy….haha, i use good old photoshop, so thanks to them.

  • 7. Q  |  December 4, 2006 at 3:54 am

    Woohoo scout!
    This is a humor blog??? I get my news here! But if people find this funny too, all the better I says.
    Thanx for all your hard shop work from your pals, Omar Sharif , Jane Russel etc…there are just too many friends of this site.

  • 8. Austin  |  December 4, 2006 at 4:15 am

    Well done, Ms Super Blogger!!
    I may not get around the traps to really compare the competition but I know what I know is good and what I don’t know, I won’t ever know cos I don’t have the time to find out. But I did find the time to vote for you and also check out a couple of other sites (which looked v.interesting) so well done! And keep up the good doing.

  • 9. cheezwhiz  |  December 4, 2006 at 6:34 am

    You rule, Scout!!!

  • 10. schmutzie  |  December 4, 2006 at 6:52 am

    Congratulations on all your placings in the CBA awards! Awesome.

  • 11. JJ  |  December 4, 2006 at 7:22 am

    Congratulations, scout! You do an *amazing* job on this blog, and your awards are well-deserved. Crystal Methodist alone has done wonders to show me the error of my heathen ways and put me on the road to godliness.

  • 12. K-Dough  |  December 4, 2006 at 7:38 am

    Congrats! Well-deserved Scout!

  • 13. harpervalley  |  December 4, 2006 at 8:06 am

    k-man, many thanks! you did say ‘well preserved’ , didn’t you?

  • 14. Dave  |  December 4, 2006 at 8:35 am

    Yeah! Way to go! Keep up the great work!

  • 15. harpervalley  |  December 4, 2006 at 8:53 am

    dave, and back at ya!!! check out the ‘galloping beaver’ who won gold in ‘best group blog’….this is a site i’ve linked since just about the beginning.

  • 16. The Anon  |  December 4, 2006 at 8:54 am

    Congratulations Scout. Well done.

    Who is this person who won many awards:
    A bit disappointed with award people on this one.

  • 17. Alana  |  December 4, 2006 at 9:08 am

    Hey there Scout, thanks for stopping by with the congrats, much appreciated! Major congrats to you too, looks like you cleaned up! Awesome job, we’ll be watching out for you next year!

  • 18. James  |  December 4, 2006 at 11:15 am

    Congratulations to you! And thanks for your nice comments about my blog.


    Heartfelt thanks,



  • 19. jacobin  |  December 4, 2006 at 1:49 pm

    Harper sure looks fat in that photo, ah yeah, he is fat ;0

  • 20. harpervalley  |  December 4, 2006 at 2:43 pm

    cheez! i missed you above, bad bad me!!! and miss you here on a frequent basis too….ah well, such is the life of a doctoral candidate! but thanks!

    alana…thanks, nice to see you! a stop by ‘the stromboli’ is worth it…..one of the coolest thing about these awaards is being introduced to so many neat sites.

    james, why it’s the ‘gay person of colour’ himself 🙂 . cool site that. love to ya!

    jacobin…..well, today we’re calling him rotund. fat is tomrrow’s choice so you’re ahead to the times.

  • 21. harpervalley  |  December 4, 2006 at 2:55 pm

    the anon….shoots, i missed you too!!! bad scout! well , it’s not up to the organizer’s whom the people nominate then vote for. i’m too old a fart to ‘get’ rami’s page….she aims for the pubescent crowd and does a great job showing and telling them what they want to hear………she probably wouldn’t ‘get’ this site as i don’t believe she’s political.

    so, to each their own , she did it, even beat out mercer which is quite funny in it’s own way, and we have to hand it to her. the kids of canadian blogs have spoken and it’s good to know they have a strong voice……..after all, it’s us old geezers they have to ‘live under’.

  • 22. sooey  |  December 4, 2006 at 3:14 pm

    stephen harper looks to be really proud of you too, scout!

  • 23. Simon  |  December 4, 2006 at 4:11 pm

    Congratulations Scoutie!!!!! You deserve it. Thanks for making me laugh …and for your words of wisdom and encouragement..
    Now Where’s the party????!!!!!

    Simon (apprentice Spirit Warrior)

  • 24. Sheena  |  December 4, 2006 at 5:32 pm

    Congrats Scout.
    And others.
    Your friend,
    Sheena “I’m a Mongoloid” Verputzout.

  • 25. harpervalley  |  December 4, 2006 at 5:53 pm

    sooey, yes, steve does look proud, and so he should…..jeff of ‘african perspective’ emmailed me to say he”s off to ottawa and could he tell stever anything ….i said i’d like him to comment on my blog spot. i’m sure he would, right?

    simon, thanks! we’ll have to consult with sheena on the party….she’s our travelogue expert and it’s her airmiles points we’ll be using. and you go boy, you’re a wonderful apprentice spirit warrior!!!

    sheena, thanks…didn’t know you were a mongoloid….am i missing something? hmm, best check out your site!!!!! oh, and how many can you get together on your air miles for the party?

  • 26. Sheena  |  December 4, 2006 at 6:17 pm

    Party? sniff sniff? There’s a party?
    Well gosh darn it, then I’ll just wipe away these tears and press my skirt and bake us all a big pie!!!

    airmiles, aeroplan, don’t even go there, girl. I can’t count that high.

  • 27. harpervalley  |  December 4, 2006 at 9:21 pm

    great everyone, sheena’s hosting the party, t.b.a.. let’s see, should i wear value village or sally ann? maybe crystal methodist has a dress i can borrow. if you bake the pie, i’ll , hmm, the kitchen isn’t my area….i PROMISE not to burn, i mean, bake anything!

  • 28. Annamarie  |  December 4, 2006 at 9:36 pm

    Congratulations, Scout!! You did really well on the awards!! Though I still can’t see why Raymi the Mix got all those votes, but then again, I’m old and I guess it’s a ‘generational thing’.

    btw, if there’s a party, I’m coming too, but no baking for me, unless you all like burnt hockey-pucks! 🙂

  • 29. RossK  |  December 4, 2006 at 11:06 pm

    Awwww, scout.

    Well, at least we’ll always be able to say…..’We knew her back when…..”

    Speaking of which, how are those negotiations to work for Mercer goin’ anyhow?


  • 30. harpervalley  |  December 5, 2006 at 12:18 am

    annamarie, thanks again! we could have a selction of your hockey pucks and my hockey pucks….maybe we should just play hockey? and yes, i think it is a generational thing and i say ‘yay’ for the youth!!!!gawd knows we had our accessible heroes back then…even if it was to call the local d.j. ‘hi, my name is scout, could you play any dylan tune and i’d like to send it out to the world with love and peace’. oh, ha, MAD magazine was a great anti-establishment read , though that started us on the track around grade five or something…..i still think it’s very important.

    ross….well, mercer called on a break from taping his show and it looks like he’s changing his blog name to mercer the mink, and i’m changing mine to harper’s hampsters….that oughta do it 😀
