More Stuff For Mom To Put On The Icebox!

Yes, it’s that time again.  Time for me to forget all those bad things I say about blogging awards, suck it up, and recognize some pretty nifty things my fellow bloggers have bestowed upon me because I’m so special, my name should be Ed.

So pretty!  I'm expecting Rowan and Martin to come out at any time...

First to my twin sister from a different mister, Merbear, who created The Loyal Reader Award to recognize those who read her deep thoughts, taboo topics, and just plain funny shit every day.  The best awards don’t have rules that make you jump through more hoops than the players of Midnight Madness, and this one is pretty easy.  Thanks Merby for thinking of your squirrely friend!

The Loyal Reader Award.

This award is given to the faithful and loyal readers who rarely miss a post. True through thick and thin, they are there to lend a supportive word or a cyber hug. The Loyal Reader Award was created to show that you really do treasure each and every individual relationship formed here on WordPress.

The rules are simple, because simple is good.

1. Display the award on your blog.

2. Thank the person who sent it to you.

3. Answer a rhetorical question of the authors choosing.

4. Send on the award to everyone you consider a loyal reader.

Since I am my own most loyal reader (editing constantly) , it is only fair that I answer my own rhetorical question for my nominee’s as well.

If you were on a deserted island, how would you survive?

I wouldn’t.

There we go, all the hard work is done!  Now to nominate my own true blue, loyalest readers.  Those who like and/or comment on the majority of my posts day in and day out… it wouldn’t be as fun putting this all together without you!

Of course, Merby herself is one of my loyalest readers… so I would be remiss not to nominate her!

Hooray!  Hooray!

Hooray! Hooray!

And speaking of Kira, she composed her own awards post yesterday called The Squirelies, which was led off with this picture which would make a totally adorable badge for any award!

The Academy must have been NUTS to award this to me!

Kira included The Nest among her first group of blogs to receive a Squirrel Spotlight Award!  Of course, it was the shared fondness for sciurine critters that helped me net this extreme honor, and it’s all the more rewarding to be liked by a fellow squirrel aficionado.  Since Kira proclaims herself to be a Ninja Squirrel Wrangler in the header on her blog, I drew up this little picture for her to show my appreciation for being featured in the Squirrel Spotlight…

Ninja squirrels kick ass!

Thank you very much Kira and Merby for bestowing these honors on me!

    Thank you for the mention…and thank you for keeping someone like me (with a short attention span and way too much on my plate) amused.

  2. I love your ninja squirrel!

    There you go again, being remiss… 😉

    Thank you ES. It would appear that neither one of us would survive on a deserted island, mostly because you would end up bogarting all the coconuts.

    These are cool 🙂 and thanks for including me in the Loyal Reader Award. 🙂 I truly enjoy your blog. : )

  5. Thank you so much! I shall have to buy a new frock! One has to get a new frock when one gets a beautiful award right? I will have to get shoes too because it would be pointless to get a new frock and wear it without nice shoes… I love the ninja squirrel as does the boy. Thanks for the giggles!

    Congratulations! And thank you! I am proud and happy to be one of your loyal readers.

    Awww! Awesome awards, and how adorable is that little squirrel guy with the Oscar trophy. He totally deserves the win for “cutest critter in the blogosphere” category. 😀

    Thanks for thinking of me and my blog, I’m thrilled to have found the Evil Squirrel’s Nest, and am happy to be one of its loyal readers. Yay! (I’m also severely behind in doing awards posts. *shame*)

  8. You like him! You really really like him!
