Do You Like Me? Yes. No. Maybe.

Two of my favorite Cleveland bloggers gave me some bloggy style love today. I love both of their blogs and appreciate them stroking my ego enough to make my head even bigger than it already was.

Thanks to Mel over at Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Your Boyfriend for the following award:

Her weekly "Penis Tuesday" feature might be the greatest weekly event in my life (right behind my weekly shower). She always squeezes every bit of fun out of Cleveland better than anyone I have ever seen.

Special thanks to my penis for enabling me to be in the running for this award.

Also thanks to -A at Encounters of the Human Kind. Her posts are always extremely thought provoking and I need to apologize for the amount of times I work fart jokes into my comments on her page. She has bestowed upon me the Arte y Pico award:

Please check her blog out and join in what is always an interesting discussion (and if you leave an intelligent comment you will cancel my stupid one out - the same reason you should vote this year.)

So my instructions were to nominate a few of the other blogs that I enjoy - lets start with the first award -

Goes to -

Confessions of a Cohabitant - she enjoys calling guys idiots as much as I enjoy calling girls bat shit crazy.

Surviving Myself - because when people are idiots he says all the witty, awesome things that I only come up with fifteen minutes after they walk away.

Your Beard Is Good - I am pretty sure he is just a cartoon character that gets in crazy situations everyday because no one person should have as many good stories as he does.

A Taste of Fresh Banana Puddin' is hysterical and I am pretty sure is picking up my party slack since I have become uncool.

Cleveland's A Plum - another hysterical blog that captures the goings on in Cleveland better than I ever will. Also introduced me to Carl Monday's Jackin It Also didn't run away screaming when we met at the bar which means our meeting went better than my foray into online dating - ZING!

And for the Arte y Pico award -

- his writing style and alcohol intake are both impressive - and he is a staunch supporter of the "Bears and Scarier Than Sharks" campaign.

Mental Poo - although part of me is angry at how many times his custom pictures have made me laugh out loud in my office as my boss walks by.

Speak On It - because her dance moves to NKOTB brought all the boys to the yard (watch the video). And she is manages to fit a lot of humor and insight into some serious topics.

*** I fucked up. It was BSB - not NKOTB. I feel terrible for this. I am pretty sure I could be arrested for slander. I don't know what slander means but I'm sticking with it because I am a jerk. Sorry Deutlich!

Half Deserted Streets - when I see this name I always think it says Desserted and I want to know how dessert became a verb and why I never dessert. But beyond that she is extremely creative and the Testaments series has been funny, hilarious and insightful at the same time.

Ok there are so, so, so many more but I am running out of energy and compliments. This blog is supposed to be all about ME damnit!

Oh - the rules -

1) Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material, and overall contribution to the blogger community, regardless of the language.

2) Post the name of the author and a link to his or her blog by so everyone can view it.

3) Each award-winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award.

4) The award-winner and the presenter should post the link of the “Arte y pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Please post these rules.

6) Buy Narm lots of pretty things.

True Story- "Koala", "Panda", and "Grizzly" all roughly translate in their native tongues to "Devil".

Hey thanks man!

Lauren said...

Just saying.

You are an amazing blog pimp.

Thanks, dude!

Even after I compare Tom Petty's singing to a dying cat, I still get an award.

THAT'S impressive.

I'm not changing my opinion of Tom Petty, though. Seriously - it's like the poor cat's going through a wood chipper.

Jenn said...

Congrats on the awards! Well deserved :)

rs27 said...

YEAH! an award. What did I get? Ipod? No?

Oh, it's a prism. Well, prisms are cool.

I bestow this award on you...

"Best blog by a guy named Narm that lives in Cleveland"
