I guess you shouldn’t read my blog at work…or in study hall.

23 Dec

Thanks to the lovely Kirsten at Kirsten Writes!, I have received my second blogging award this month: the Don’t Read This Blog At Work Award.

Here are The Rules for this one:

  1. You may nominate no more than three bloggers, each of whom must have made you laugh out loud with at least one post.
  2. Those who receive the nominations may consider themselves as having received the award, and they must post a gushing acceptance speech thanking the person who nominated them, and perhaps thanking any companion animals they may blog about.
  3. Those who receive the award may, but need not, pass on the award, but will not themselves be eligible again until they have published at least ten more posts.

Friends, readers, followers, lend me your ears–we have come to praise Allegra, not to bury her. If we were burying her, and she was writing the speech on her blog, she would be a zombie, which would be COOL. But she is perfectly alive and suddenly speaking in the third person.

Anywho, I’d like to thank Kirsten, of course, for sending me this award. I’m glad my posts are as amusing as I think they are. I’m feeling as if I should try to write more comical stuff and fewer long-winded hoity-toity book reviews. Would anybody actually be upset with me if I stopped writing book reviews? Do any of you people actually read them? Would any of you like me to hurry and wrap up this speech?

The rest of my thanks go to everyone who’s commented on any of my posts, especially the funny ones, and all of my followers. I’m also obligated to thank everyone who’s ever written something funny that I read, because they’re all my inspirations. Also my mom, for making me keep blogging when I almost quit. I was really annoyed by that at the time. Funny how things work out.

OK, that’s the acceptance speech. I hereby nominate:

Liam, Head Phil: Liam’s posts rarely fail to make me laugh, and they only don’t make me laugh when he’s not trying to be funny.

John Hansen: Pure dry wit is readily available on John’s fantastic blog.

Josie, aka EricDoesNotExist: Josie hasn’t posted in a very long time, which is saddening to me, because Eric Does Not Exist is one of my favorite blogs, and riotously funny to boot.

Just in the event that I don’t get around to posting and/or I can’t come up with a creative way with which to present the sentiment, happy holidays to all of you, whether you celebrate steampunk Christmas or Saturnalia. Hopefully there’ll be lots of nerdiness in store.

    Oh, thank you so much!
    …Again. Seriously, though, I love getting awards, and when it’s two different ones in short succession, both from the same person, it’s great. Thanks!

    It’s so awesome to see this award spreading 😀 There are so many different ones to recognize the many talented writers on WP but I’ve never seen one that recognized those that brought chuckles until this one. I remember getting it; at the time I was the first one to receive it. All thanks to:

    Anyways, congrats on the award! And best wishes to your future writing career. (I peeked at your ‘about’)
