Like Cary Grant…

The phone rang and I looked down to see whose name was on the caller ID. I was surprised to see that it was ed k., but he knew it was my first day at the temp job at the law firm, and I figured he was calling to check on me. Ed K. is just like that.

But that wasn’t it at all. He was calling to let me know that the finalists had been announced for the 2003 Bloggies and I’m up for awards! Big Pink Cookie is up for Best American Blog and Picture Yourself is up for Best Non-Weblog Content of a Weblog Site. My beloved Blogwhore is up for Best Topical Weblog. ScriptyGoddess is up for not just one award, but three!

It’s wonderful to see so many things that have been so important to me for the past year up there for awards. It’s nothing short of amazing, really. And while I’m up against some really great competition, I’m not up against Wil Wheaton. Amazing. It’s also great to see so many clients of Blogomania up for awards. Wow, I really am in good company!

Thank you to Ed K. for being my Cary Grant to my Sophia Lauren at the 1969 Oscars … it was the perfect way to find out about the nods, like a golden envelope being dropped at my door. (You’d have to ask him about the Cary Grant thing – he said it, not me…)

My votes for the finalists are in … are yours?

By the way – I’m giving a Bloggie award or two out at SXSW – does this mean I need to get a pink tutu and high heels with pink laces up my legs a la Lara Flynn Boyle?

This is all very exciting. I’m going to vote tomorrow, when I’ve had more time to visit some of the blogs I’m not familiar with.

Congrats on your nominations! They’re well deserved! 😀

WA-HOO for you! You deserve all the kudos and awards that are out there for Picture Yourself. Great job on Best American Blog! 🙂 It’s yours.. I see it in the future of a big Oreo Cookie! 🙂

I put you forward for best American… (but I also voted for Michele, thats okay, right? you don’t mind do you?)… come to think of it, these nominations are all looking suspiciously like my nominations sheet… do you think Nikolai just cheated and posted my sheet?

Drumroll please…
Well Stacy just pointed out that The 2003 Bloggies nominations are up — which means there are several BIG rounds of congrats to pass along! Blogs & Pets (Christine M., best weblog webring) Blogrolling (best update monitor and application for weblogs) …
