The Byronic Man has a weekly contest on his blog, and I won the last one – I’m so excited! I wrote a little poem about setting fire to the personal possessions of your not-so-significant-other-anymore-since-he-just-dumped-you. Autobiographical. (Just kidding!) You can read it here. I think you should go do that right now. I’ll wait.
Anyway, I found out Saturday after work, and A Christmas Story is the first thing that popped into my head:
Sweed: …what is that?
—Dad: It’s a major award.
Sweed: A major award?
Dad: I won it.
—Sweed: Damn, hell you say, you won it?
Dad: Yeah. Mind power, Sweed, mind power.
—Ralphie: The entire neighborhood was turned on.
You have permission to be turned on by my major award: I get to be Blogger Of The Week over at The Byronic Man (damn, hell you say). It’s true! He put my picture up, with a testimony about my elegance and shark-fearingness. It’s totally awesome.
If you haven’t been over to his blog before, you should go check
him it out. I can’t guarantee you’ll end up being a major award winner, like me, but I don’t think you’ll regret it.
