As suggested, and then seconded in a lovely manner, I'd like to present some awards to my loyal readers!
Now, I'm not entirely sure of the way this is going to work... so bare (bear?) with me (and yes, there are a lot of exclamation marks, but that's what awards ceremonies are about)...
Adam wins the take me out for a drinking night award. He gets to take me out drinking for a night so that we can drink lady drinks and make bad jokes and talk too noisy and joke about that time that D'jen and I spied on him from the balcony and it will be awesome because she will be there too - that's the special part of the award!
Amanda wins the most persistent CD sending effort award - though she does also get a very honorable mention for also being the most easy going person that I am yet to meet - she seems to get along with everyone she's met!
Ampersand Duck wins the person I'd most like to be my cool aunty award! She's so engaging and friendly and looks to make awesome meals (with assistance of course!).
Audrey wins the person most likely to deserve a frickin break. She's had a poor run and seems totally lovely in an older sister that would get me drunk kinda way!
Aurelius wins the most intriguing new male award - I only came across him recently (via Mick) and do hope I can continue too - seems he's got a lurker on the loose...
Bevis wins the most creative award - he's like TV in an online brain kinda way (and I do so miss Big Blogger)!
Boysenberry wins the most likely to be accidentally bumped into without knowing it award - he's a local but also not the type to blogmeet, though definitely an interesting guy I'd like to learn more about!
Brooke wins the secret stalker award, as we both 'came out' to each other at the same time!
C & P win the achievable lifestyle award, showing everyone how easy it can be to be happy, healthy vegans with a lovely happy, healthy vegan baby! I'd also love to meet them - they're like my vegan blogger mecca!
Chesty LaRue wins the continual entertainment award, for providing entertainment to me every lunchtime that is always humorous or entertaining (or both)!
ChickyBabe wins the first commenter award, for being the first commenter and perhaps even the last one day (if she is still here)!
Crapping On (Canberra) wins the most likely to be someone I work with award. I dunno, I just have a feeling that's how it's going to turn out one day..!
D'Jen wins the most delightful award (obviously!). She is also the most likely to respond to a an emergency phone call with 'Stay put dear, I'll come and get you'!
Dean wins the NOT the most boring man on the internet award (after I embarrassingly pointed out I'd heard him referred to as) - as part of this he gets to host a Singstar party *fingers crossed*!
Deb wins the vivacity award, with a bonus for the most awesome hair cut and colour!
Desci wins the award for being the first goth chick that I ever met, thus breaking down the barrier that they're all freaky scaries - Goths be pplz too, yo.
Erica wins the award for being the first blogger I ever met in RL! She gets to be stalked by me via email, messenger AND MySpazz!
Fluffy wins the one cool mama award - for being one cool mama!
Jac wins the dark horse award - we've met, but not properly 'met'!
Jane wins the personable courage award, for always replying to every comment personally, blogging in multiple places at once and putting up with a whole lot of crap. And if I can ever work out where on the map the place is that she lives, I'd love to visit it one day!
Krankiboy wins the constant overseas companion award - for being a good overseas buddy!
Lulu wins the kawaii award - she was an awesome host and tour guide and a lovely, lovely girl who will get a Canberra tour on the offchance she visits!
M. wins the hidden talent award, for 'sneaking' into the blogosphere and also being an awesome MySpazz friend!
Mars'n'Dot win the the awesome foursome twosome award. I would LURVE to meet up with mars, as long as she didn't start a fight and expect me to jump in...!
Martie wins the icecream date award - I don't know how we'd work it out because I can only eat So Good and she'd want Cold Rock, but it would be an AWESOME icecream date nontheless!
Michelle wins the nationalised Aussie Battler award - she's had a struggle and it's all starting to come together for her at last.
Mick wins the blogger I'm most likely to meet next award. Just a (totally non stalky) hunch!
Nat wins the dust animal award for being funny as heck, in both BL and RL!
Rosanna wins the fresh newcomer award - I only found her recently (thru d'jen!) but she's just so lovely and a pleasure to read (and hear from)!
Steph wins the coolest person that may not be that scary in real life award. I'm easily intimated but do hope that if I were to meet her that we'd get along - she seems very down to earth!
Somewhat Sober wins the tiny, tiny world award - I found her when I was new to the blogosphere, then she disapeared - only to reappear very close to home (albeit sporadically)!
TokenWoman wins the not updating in the longest time yet still ensuring I check back on the rare offchance she has updated award! She also hooked me up with awesome tupperware keyringage!
TJ wins the amazonian idol award - the first person whose archives I obsessively read and finally got to meet - she was inspiration for me to start this whole shebang.
