Holy crap!

I was being sincere last week when I said that my major fear in the Canadian Blog Awards was coming in last or near last. I had expected (perhaps arrogantly) to make a fairly decent showing in the middle of the pack, but harboured a secret desire to make it as a finalist.

Well, the votes are in and – – – You did it! We did it!! Postcards from the Mothership made the cut to the final round of voting! Thanks to your diligent voting, blog came in third in the best new blog category, and fourth in the best personal blog category.

WOW!!!!! I’m so honoured and pleased and just damn happy this morning. THANK YOU!

So, you know you’re on the hook for the next round of voting, right? Voting starts Saturday and continues through next Friday. You can vote once a day. No pressure or anything, though. (grovels) But please vote for me!

As if my head weren’t swelled enough already, I was looking at the full tally of results and couldn’t help but note that only one vote separates me and the leader in the best new blog category – and the number one spot is held by Rick Mercer’s blog.

So now we have a new goal. Yes, I said “we” – in for a penny, in for a pound, my friends. I’ve hatched a diabolical new plan to (takes deep breath) … take down Rick Mercer.

(waits for gales of laughter to die down)

Hey, he’s won about 200 Gemini Awards, Canadian Comedy Awards, Writers Guild of Canada Awards and he has his own TV show. I need this more than he does!

The only way I stand a chance is if he doesn’t notice me, a little yap dog of a blogger nipping at his heels. Nobody tell him, okay?

So really – thank you. You’ve honoured me and made me a very happy blogger. Smooches to all of you…

Hooray!! Although I am not at all surprised.
So how much do I get for the next round? Oops! Did I just say that out loud? Was that a secret deal? Sorry….

A little cross-border solidarity here.

You’re my hero…er…heroine.

WONDERFUL! You go girl… and hey, spread the wealth okay? I need THIS too. Not that I am Canadian (I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, right under Lake Superior, that’s close enough right?), or actually able to enter….
πŸ˜‰ I am so very happy for you… here’s to another successful bribe! Ha!

12 Nancy December 2, 2005 at 5:55 pm

Congrats! now don’t forget, small denomination bills, all unmarked. πŸ™‚
Just kidding of course. I wouldn’t have voted if you didn’t deserve it.

13 Kristina December 2, 2005 at 5:59 pm

Congrats, Dani: you deserve it! Who’s Rick Mercer, anyway?

14 SilverCreek Mom December 2, 2005 at 6:08 pm

I don’t know Dani…Rick Mercier is pretty hot and well honey you just ain’t my type. BUT I do read your blog and have only been to his once or twice…so I guess I can be convinced to vite for you/
Gosh after you win Can I have your Blogograph? Please Huh?
Ready to start voting.

15 Phantom Scribbler December 2, 2005 at 9:15 pm

My mouse finger is ready. Bring on the voting! Hurray for Dani!

16 Snack Mommy December 2, 2005 at 9:51 pm

…was there ever any doubt? BTW, I’ll forward you my address for payment. As a reminder, it was double whatever you paid Nancy.

17 DaniGirl December 3, 2005 at 12:52 am

Yes, yes, Santa has been told to deliver extra goodies to all you sweet boys and girls who voted for me, unmarked and in large denominations.
Really, thank you… (head swelling to dangerous proportions)

18 Jen December 3, 2005 at 2:12 am

Congrats. Oh, yes, we must take Mercer down. Absolutely. Rock the vote!

19 twinmomplusone December 3, 2005 at 2:36 am

voting for you is WAY easier than the voting us Canadian citizens will have to do in a little while πŸ˜‰

20 Ann D December 3, 2005 at 6:08 pm

Rick who? Rick thinks he can beat a MOM? Ha, I say!

21 Sue December 4, 2005 at 12:10 am

Hooray!!! I’ll be voting for you in the next round too….
