Receive an award, award an ASBO


The kindly dj kirkby has presented me with another award to add to the virtual mantelpiece, this one prompted by a shameless display of my tattoo - with accessories - on Caroline's blog (no I'm NOT providing a direct link to the post: I've already indulged in enough shameless self-promotion!). Thanks dj (and Caroline too), greatly appreciated!

Whilst this is graciously accepted, I'm going to do my usual thing of ignoring the conditions for passing it on to others, but I do think it would be appropriate of me to bestow it upon one particular blogger. His comments and his posts often puzzle me to say the least, but they are often punctuated by flashes of sheer brilliance; I recently suggested that he has the knack of expressing completely the opposite understanding of the point of many of my posts; he's also been consistently making cryptic (what else?) references to darts on my recent comment threads.

So I'm awarding zola this particular badge of (dis)honour, in light of the fact that not only did he finally answer my pleas to actually write a post about darts, but I also found it to be a cracking read (From Football To Darts, posted yesterday). Blogging above and beyond the call of duty, as far as I'm concerned. The only thing is, I don't think he'll accept this award unless I manage to convince him that it's actually an ASBO.

ZOLA, I'VE AWARDED YOU AN ASBO

(I wonder if that'll do the trick)

Well it's there for him if he so wishes: zola take a bow.

Was truly an excellent post from Zo-Zo. In fact, one that was written in language I could even understand.
He should publish more of his memories - same as GrumpyAunt.

Agreed merk, he should post more of his memories, each time he has done so far - that I've read at least- I've found it to be engaging and evocative.

Congratulations Trews - well deserved.

Fab! And not before time, eh, Zola?

You are such a reble! Congrats to Zola...

Umble I am sirs and Ms melons. Your umble servant in the year of the rat.

However I cannot attend the ASBO award ceremony and thank all those that helped me achieve such glorious and enchanted heights. You see i am stuck on a 500 metre limit. If I go over that the damned sensors get buzzing.
I'm trying to be a good boy right now hoping that they will parade some long leggy naked blonde on the stage before me.
The lonliness of the long distance blogger.

Enjoy your award. I got one too, not from you of course Trousers, oh no no no (says she all huffy) - that was a joke :o) You deserve every bit of your award.

Trousers : You bring us all together and we must sing.
"I am not looking to .... all I really want is to ... be friends with you".
It is not the awards you get it is the way that you wear them.
You wear them well.

Oh, shucks, you're all too kind! But as you'll note from the post, this is not about my alleged blogging skill(s), it is purely tattoo-related - which is far from being a problem at all. I'm quite a shy person really so it's ironic (...or am I/ or is it etc) that I've received an award for gratuitous displays of said tattoo, but there we go: such are the delights of blogging and relative anonymity.

Damn it, what should I write my next post about, I wonder?

But Why? said...

This is the sort of non-conformist behaviour we should expect from a man who wears his "right-foot, left-foot" socks on the wrong feet... Congratulations!

Oh yes, but why, no point in blogging if it's not right out there on the edge...

Bloody hell!

See, I swore, that's how out there I am.
