I have been awarded the quadruple "E for Excellent Award"! I am greatly honored, and would like to thank Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, BAC from Yikes!, Liberality,
and of course my esteemed colleague, Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein
from the bottom of my pongoid heart.
I have now no longer just another ordinary blog about an orangutan world leader from the future, I am officially an "E for Excellent" Award winner! I am overwhelmed and overcome with the sheer magnitude of this gesture on the part of my fellow bloggers. (The rumor that I bribed all of the judges is very probably not true - Although I would not like to comment on that matter at this time.)
I am actually terrible about responding to awards. The last time I posted an award (that I got from the wonderful Becca of No Smoking in the Skullcave), I made cute little icons of each of the recipients of the award, and wrote a little paragraph for each blog, and made a graphic, and wrote about it, etc. which was all a lot of work, but nothing compared to the dread I was filled with in having to narrow down my choice to only the prerequisite number of blogs. There are so many terrific blogs out there! It was all so emotionally draining...
Ever since then I have been terrible about not responding to awards, which I am sure that you will agree is a really lame excuse. Well, I have decided not to shirk my important blogging responsibilities any longer, and I shall now meet oncoming awards head on! So here goes... (I must admit that the hardest part of this excercise is still deciding who to give the award to. All of the blogs are so good!)
As Skippy the Bush Kangaroo says, "The rules of the excellent blog award stipulate that once a blog receives it, that blog must then pay it forward to ten other worthy blogs, thus spreading the accolades around blogtopia."
Anyway, here are the awards, in no particular order. If your name is not on this list, I still have a couple of other awards lying around that I plan on distributing in the near future...
