Wandering Donkeys

Thanks to all of you that voted for me over at Knucklehead's place as part of the Blog-Off 2010 competition. If you have not seen my entry, click here.

For those of you who have not voted, there's still time. Polls close at 6:00 PM Pacific time Wednesday. For those of you that voted for someone else other than yourself, well, um, you'd best be looking over your shoulder. After your read this post, you'll know why.

Today, I want to bore you tell you about an award that I have received. It's called a "bad ass" award and it's from CatLadyLarew.

I was a bit confused. I thought I was being told that my ass had misbehaved. I know what you're thinking.

Stop it.

What I mean is that I was thinking that this cute little guy had wandered off and was bothering cats.

But, no, that wasn't it.

I realized that "bad ass" means tough. Maybe she was throwing me in the habitat with this dude:

I eat geeks for high tea.

THAT was a scary thought.

Finally, I read her blog post and she explained that she created the award using a picture of a cat that you don't want to stroke and she awarded it to a few of her topless bloggy friends that talk back to her (leave comments).

I think this kitty was one of those poor unfortunate beasts that had to wear a Christmas costume or had an unfortunate and unwelcome encounter with a liquid.

Thanks for thinking of me,
CatLady. I love the award. As expected, though, Cat hissed at it and Evil Twin's big head is about to explode.

Bee said...

I voted for you the other day. Can I vote more than once? ;o)

It's always better to be a badass than a dumbass I always say.

Nooter said...

that cat looks like its marinated long enough, onto the grill with it!

ReformingGeek said...

@Gayle - Thanks!

@Bee - Thanks for voting for me. I think that whether or not you can vote more than once will depend on your browser and how it stores its cookies.

@Nooter - An open fire sounds good right now. BRRRRR!

The Constant Complainer said...

That cat badass picture cracks me up every single time I see it.

Happy New Year, Reforming Geek. I guess I'm officially over my holiday-MIA blogging status. So I'm getting caught-up tonight.

And don't forget that I still have that gift card for you, from the contest you won. I'll contact you to make arrangements. Thanks.

UberGrumpy said...

:) That's a cat? It looks like a toilet brush

ReformingGeek said...

@Constant - Thanks. Glad to see you back.

@UberGrumpy - Maybe that's what happened to the poor thing. He fell in the toilet trying to get a quick drink.
