They like me... they really really like me!

I don't really know WHO "they" are, but someone voted for me. And for that I thank you.

I didn't know I'd been nominated until I saw Georgie's comment. I immediately clicked on the link and scrolled through. Lots of options listed -- Best Overall, Best Humor, Best Family Blog, Best Looking... none of them had my name on them. I was beginning to think that Georgie was playing a mean prank!

But then I saw it. It was a moment of laughter and horror all at once!

Best Unusual Blog.

So this is where you categorize me.

I could sit and try to read a lot in to it, but I won't. I'm honestly just flattered that people thought of me in the first place! So if you were one of them. Thank you from the bottom of my unusual heart.

And of course I am nominated on the day that I write about the similarities of tangelos and boobs. Dang!

Hi Baloney,
I am not an OK Blogger, but have lurked on your blog for awhile. I "leapblogged" from Anne at We're Having a Ball after she had mentioned your blog. You had me at TURDBEAST- being a nurse - I have seen these in real life. But your blog is always LOL funny and if I WERE an OK Blogger, you would have my vote.

I really really do like you Baloney. You are tops.
Instead of unusual, think, special, unique, one of a kind. That is you.

Congratulations on your nomination and thank you for the plug.

Yogi is right!! Unique!

But, I think I spit on the screen when I saw that you were in the unusual category! ROFL!

Although, the boob tangelos do seem to fall into the unusual category!?! :)

Thanks for the mention! My category has VERY tough competition as well. I'm honored to be in the category with such great bloggers.

You might add 6 Happy Hearts to your list. She's up for inspirational blog! She's great. Plus, I know her personally. :)
