<< Great Ideas For Dead People | I Have A Crush >>

Good morning. defective yeti is up for the "Most Humorous Weblog" Bloggie. I was sorta hoping it would get nominated for "Best New Weblog" or "Least Spellchecked" or something else I'd have a hope of winning, but "Most Humorous" it is.

Don't get me wrong: this is great news for my Brobdingnagian ego! But it's also bad news for the yeti-reading public, because now that I'm "on the spot," as they say, the next fortnight's worth of entries are certain to be violently unfunny, just as a multitude of visitors stop by to "check" me "out" before voting for Wil Wheaton. So if you're here four days from now, and you're wondering why every post after this one is all like "let me tell you about this great For Better Or Worse strip I read this morning, LOL!!!," that's what's going on. Go read these instead.

Or, better yet, go read Cockeyed or Mimi Smartypants or Torrez.org, pretend that it's me writing all that ha-ha, and vote accordingly. (That last one is kinda tricky, since Andre Torrez is also up for the "Most Humorous Weblog" award. So it's crucial that you remember, at all times, that you're pretending I wrote the funny stuff on his site. Otherwise you might get confused and vote for him. Here's a mnemonic you can use: "If Torrez makes you laugh so hard that you become sweaty, vote for the yeti".)

Thanks for the nomination, Bloggies-ers!

Wow, you've hit the bigtime! Soon, I suppose, you'll be "too busy" for the little people...

Just wish I could figure out exactly HOW to vote?!?!

The Boy Wheaton didn't get a nomination, apparently, congrats sasquatch, you beat the last winner already!!!

I voted for you and now supernatural things are happening in my home. Don't worry, they're good supernatural things.

It is not where you left it. You did indeed place it there, but sometime after that, it was moved, or moved itself. It might have just vanished. All I can say with certainty is that it's not there. I'm sorry. I know you needed it. I know you and Cindy had plans for it, but that will have to wait at least until after the party now. You can look for it if you want. Just don't look where you left it. It's not there.

Is there a category for "Best Use of the Word 'Brobdingnagian'"? Because if so, you've got it sewn UP, mister man!

Bird on the horizon
Sitting on a fence
He's singing a song for you
At his own expense

I voted for the Yeti. In fact that's the only think I voted for because I don't read any other blogs. I don't care what other people think about politics or music or religion. In fact I don't really care what the Yeti thinks. He's just so cute...so he's got my vote.
