Long Overdue Awards

Since I have not gotten onto the Internet via the computer I save all my blogs to in order to email the file to myself so I can access them anywhere (see, it takes a lot of effort to get these suckers posted) I have decided to cash in my many awards I have won, sort of. I used to think blogging awards were real. The first time I got one I gloated to people I knew in real life. I felt like a champion. Turns out these are at times passed on because you happen to be the easiest to link back. My soul was crushed. I went into hiding for 8 years and lived among a tribe of pygmies. I got hungry one night and ate the entire tribe. Now I’m back to society to collect my awards.

(With my pygmy pals Oscar and Hasselhoff)

If memory serves me correctly, I owe accepting awards to Pouring My Art Out, Your Daily Dose, two from The Camel Life, and about 73 from A Gripping Life. I might be missing someone but these are the only ones I remember as they do not use me as someone to nominate then toss me into the trash like the rest of you do. They all nominated me for different awards. Instead of trying to find out which ones they were and such I have decided to create my own award, The Long Overdue Award.

The way this award works is you don’t follow any of the rules from the awards. All you do is say something nice about however many people you feel like saying nice things about. You don’t even need to link back to the profiles because we all know how annoying that can be. Look at the damn blogroll if you’re so inclined to see the lame people I’m referring to. The best thing about this award is you can make the nominees completely anonymous. If you think I am referring to you anywhere below then feel free to pass on the award! If you don’t think I’m referring to you then we probably just don’t know each other very well, yet. Or you might be really stupid and don’t deserve the award anyway.

Nominee #1: You are a very modest, honest, and passionate person. You’ve got strong morals and a great sense of humor. You don’t always see eye-to-eye with a lot of things people say yet somehow it never becomes a burden. I respect this and try to do it myself more. You’re someone I and I’m sure a thousand other people could always count on if we ever needed your help. You live a life quite gripping, but still make time for others. Anyone would be lucky to call you their mother.

Nominee #2: I’m not sure where you came from or how we met, but I am glad we did. I don’t know much about you as you keep things simple and quiet. Despite this I still see the goodness in you. You’re a caring and helpful person. You would go the distance to help others in any way you could even if you knew they would never do the same back. I wish you didn’t hide so much who you are because if we got to know more about you I’m sure we would adair you even more.

Nominee #3: Some days I wish I had the brash attitude you have. You take no prisoners and don’t care what others think, at least to an extent. I’m sure sometimes you do care and with some people it is important. As all bad boys do, you have a soft side and in many ways this is how we are alike. We come from completely different backgrounds, have different tastes, but your direction in where we want life to take us is not all that different. We’re doing our best to evolve through the insanity. Continued support for each other and I’m sure we can make it.

Nominee #4: I was going to say something nice to this person, but I’m pretty sure she won’t read it anyway since she claims she’ll be away until December. Oh well. Hopefully the only disease you have right now is happiness and you will come back and we can continue chatting.

Nominee #5: Above all else you need to remember what a great mom you are even when life stresses you out. You’re clever, kind, and sometimes I worry about growing up because I can’t imagine having a busy life like you do. Somehow you still manage to put everything into perspective and at least seem sane on the surface. The fact you have maintained friendships with so many people over the years is a true testament to the great person you really are. I know you probably don’t sleep much but once they’re grown you will finally get your chance.

Nominee #6: I hate you and I hope you die. No, really, we can joke like that and I like it. What’s scary about you is you could probably blackmail me. Not that I’ve done anything horrible, but you probably could. You’re a funny gal who I know I can always share things with. You’ve listened to me whine when I was lonely, when I was sad, and even that one time when I was in a good mood. I appreciate all the advice, honesty, and conversations we have had even outside the blogosphere. You’re my sista from another mista. I hope Canada has been treating you well.

Nominee #7: I haven’t known you very long but I already know how awesome you are. I don’t know much about the person you are deep down inside. I know there’s some evil, but there is also a lot of kindness and acceptance.  You’re crazy funny and creative. I’m only jealous I don’t think up half the things you do because they’re so great. Madame, we bowlers need to stick together. (I don’t bowl and I’m not sure if you do either. It was hard to subtle with this one)

Nominee #8: You’re my longest tended follower who comes around still, although not as often I am always glad to hear from you. You’re a hard-worker and I have a feeling through your hard work you have inspired others, including myself, to put forth a greater effort. You’re a clever guy and it would be great to actually get to know the man behind your genius sometime. Your last name always makes me think of fish car with gills. This isn’t your fault, don’t feel to blame.

Nominee #9: Finally you are beginning to open up about who you are a little bit. Don’t be afraid. I know it seems like you can burn a bridge and ruin the life you have ahead of you so quickly, truth is it’s hard because most people aren’t paying so close attention. I’m still shocked by your age and how talented you are. You’re well-versed in knowledge and even when you’re talking about something I have no interest in you can get me glued. Making your blog may not have been intended, but having people wanting to get to know you must have been.

Nominee #10: Well, well, well. My sworn enemy. I’ll avoid saying anything negative here as this is time for celebration! The only bad thing I’ll say about you is you’re too timid at times. You should have no reason to. You’re a great artist, a talented writer, and people are always clambering to be around you. You’ve got a gift to  make people like you. Use it. You’re a great father and you actually remind me of my own dad in a lot of ways. Never lose that. Continue pouring your art out into the world. We need it as much as you do.

Nominee #11: I don’t know you very well, but I’ll say something nice because you’re pretty entertaining to talk to. Hopefully you start blogging more than once every three months so we can actually develop some sort of relationship. Anyway, you’re clearly a genius who thinks over top of my head. You’re almost a tomboy but not really. I have no doubt you put your heart into everything it is that you do. You’ll go far in life with all the wonderful things you have about you. Ren in doubt, just remember you’re a lot better than others out there.

Nominee #12: I don’t know you personally very much. Either of you. This is a duel nomination and I’m not sure either of you will ever see this because the one is probably off wearing skinny jeans in Toronto while the other is living something called the camel life whatever that means despite me reading the description. All this aside, you two future lesbian lovers are always a gas to read. You’re two chicks any guy would be lucky to have. It’s a shame you’re in love with each other and yourselves which is the same thing when I think about it.

Nominee #13: I could never find a single negative thing to say about you other than I thought you were a mean person at first. Clearly you’re not. You’re one of the kindest, sweetest, and supportive people I have met. You’re adventurous and daring. You tried describing to me more about what it is you do and it was so complicated I gave up listening. Really though, there’s a lot more to you than you ever let people know and I don’t think you should be afraid to show other sides of you sometimes. You have a way to cheer anybody up and I don’t doubt your closest friends keep you around because of it. A daily dose of you is never enough.

If you were left off don’t feel bad! All this means is we aren’t as close, you’re a dick, or I just don’t like you very much. If you’re really desperate for attention or a compliment let me know and I’ll find some kindness to spread your way. I hope none of what I said was too creepy as it came from a genuine place in my heart.

  1. Nick says:

    Is it strange that I find creepiness sexy?


    I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

  3. A gripping life says:

    This was so unexpected and so totally kind of you. All I can say is Timisgoo, but that doesn’t even cover it. What if I told you that you can only see all these qualities in other people if you possess them yourself? There’s not a single compliment that you paid someone that I couldn’t apply to you. You’re funny, sensitive, warm, loyal, open, smart, did I say you’re funny?, you’re brave because you push the envelope a little, you’re totally relatable because you’re vulnerable and self deprecating and neurotic, and finally you are my virtual son and I think the world of you.

    • Mooselicker says:

      Aww thanks Lisa. You’re my virtual mom but you already knew that. I couldn’t go about assigning virtual relationships to everybody. I would have felt bad making someone my virtual uncle, it’s a little insulting.

      I won’t say to much else nice to you here because I’d have to do it to everyone else who comments. I’ll simply leave it at “Thanks for being who you are.”

  4. rebecca2000 says:

    Hey you left me out. Winner….Lady or not for being crazy funny, sweet, and fabulous. Even after reading her posts I laugh through out the day, remembering them. She helps the poor by giving away her holy underwear. She help the hungry by letting them lick her plate. She helps the rich get richer. She is an environmentalist in that she threw a bottled water in the recycling bin once. She is an avid reader of fantastic books like Fifty Shades of Grey. Lest not forget that she is a wonderful mom who has educated her kids on the fine art of pouring her tall glass of Southern Comfort. Ladyornot.com has become the place to go for advice and to learn to live an ethical life.

  5. Addie says:

    You made me get all teary eyed, you big lug!! I figured out Lisa from the first sentence–it took the whole paragraph to figure mine out, which shows how dense I am in real life. doh me!

    I agree that the things you list that you like about people are things you have in your own personal makeup (not the blush and lipstick you hide back in your closet, but, your emotional self). I found you reading another blog, and thought the name ‘Mooselicker’ was a heck of a hoot of a name, and, thus, we were in each others lives. How lucky am I?

  6. The Waiting says:

    I really like how you did this! It was fun to figure out who you were talking about. Nice choices, too!

    • Mooselicker says:

      The choices were pretty easy. I looked who has commented the most and for the longest amount of time. Everyone who comes here is good people. I don’t know you well enough to have said much of anything other than praise you for what a great mother/wife you seem to be.

  7. Awww, shucks, Tim. That is just so sweet. You are catching me in my most hormonal month and I am weepy. WEEPY I tell you. I think this might be my favorite award, and I love to say nice things about nice people. I will take it upon myself to actually do this one before A2 comes out. That gives me 32 days! PS–You’re the best.

    • Mooselicker says:

      Even if you don’t pass along this award pass along something good. I’d say “Pay it Forward” but I might end up dead like in the movie.

      When are women not hormonal?

      I’m glad this made you happy.

      • I could pay it forward by crying on someone’s shoulder. Then stabbing a little kid and crying about that. No, wait. Did I spoil that movie for anyone? I think we both did. And sometimes it’s a choice between a little hormonal and a lot hormonal while pregg. Otherwise boys aren’t allowed to call us that.

      • Mooselicker says:

        That movie is so old Kevin Spacey was still acting and Helen Hunt was still being paid to be in stuff. If someone hasn’t seen it yet then poo to them.

  8. AWWWW! Thanks, buddy. I don’t bowl either but I’d totally go bowling with you because you’re awesome and because you’re twisted like I am. Also, you put me to shame because I’m so backed up on awards thanks/acknowledgements, I need to get on that too.

    • Mooselicker says:

      I think I’m backed up all year long. Awards don’t mean much other than working as a nice compliment. I wanted to skip the bullshit and go straight to making people feel good about themselves. At least now I don’t ever have to collect an award ever again.

  9. renxkyoko says:

    Booooo ! I didn’t recognize myself in any of those descriptions.

  10. Pete Howorth says:

    Cheers T-Bone 🙂 trust me, you’re better off not having a brash attitude, it leads to bad more than it does good haha.

  11. Tammy says:

    Love it! I think u hit all those u needed too

  12. As soon as I started reading the nominee descriptions, I wanted to find out who they are! Great idea, Moose, really :). And I like your descriptions. Interesting to see how you see us… And thanks for the award of course!

  13. Ha! I so wish I had a sunshine award I could give you. Just because of all the sunshine…

    • Mooselicker says:

      Would you believe I actually prefer the dark way more than anything else? No need to give me an award or anything. Instead pass it along to some other people.

  14. Ummmmm… I feel very honored, in a generic sort of a way… I like this way of doing the award responses better than the traditional ways.
    What is up with your new picture? You look like you are twelve years old.

  15. Lily says:

    Hahaha I hate you and I hope you die. I immediately knew that was meant for me! You’re my brotha from anotha motha. I’ve got stories to tell you! I just need to find the time to write them down.
    Remember when I used to be a good blogger, and read all of your posts? I need to be like that again. Thanks for mentioning me and making me feel super coolio and special. Your blog is and always will be my favorite. Or maybe it’s just you that’s my favorite.

    • Mooselicker says:

      I am excited for these stories. Really, don’t feel bad about not being around as much. I fully understand people have lives to attend to. I know if I needed something from you I could get it anyway. Plus your mommy keeps tabs on me. It’s your way of making sure I don’t say anything bad isn’t it?

      You’re too kind…really!

  16. The Hobbler says:

    All of those are so sweet Moose. You picked some really great bloggers to award those to.

  17. Awww, this made me want to send you a virtual hug and draw a life-size portrait of Malin sitting on your lap as a return kindness. This is really sweet of you, Timmy! I am looking forward to writing again, but at the end of the day, I just stare at my bed and fantasize about the zzzs I could get. Review sessions are totally, mentally draining! I could start naming all the new diseases I’ve learned this day, like dses involving having two sexual organs (male and female) and actually seeing a very disturbing actual video of it, but I’m not going to because I deeply value the wholesomeness of this blog. Oh, and have you watched the documentary of Animal Planet about Mermaids? It’s really, really cool. I got it through my friend’s flashdrive, it’s an hour and 28 minutes long well-used up video time. You should totally check it out! It’s supposed to be a “speculative” documentary a.k.a entertainment film (yeah right), but I believe it’s true. Why did they remove so much of the original film, which was 2 hours long, including that one where the navy officer said something about the navy finding a body but they couldn’t keep it alive? Believeinmermaids.com website is even shutdown by US homeland security. But yeah haha maybe that’s just me. I’d believe in aliens and I don’t need any evidence for that anyway. I know, I know, I should just write a new post on my page instead of making one here. Haha! Well yeah, bye now, and here’s your virtual hug:

    >:D< .

    Someone should really start inventing a device that would send hugs and kisses people could actually feel, it could also transmit feelings that would make you feel like you're really having sex with someone, that way we wouldn't need other human creature to be with us ever again! That inventor would be a zillionaire. I wish I paid more attention to my Physics professor. Alright, I'd stop typing now.

    Awwwwwwwww! Omg you’re so sweet, thank you!! And thank you for the part of not being afraid to show… That means a lot to me 😀
