Who, me, seriously?

You blog me, you really blog me! Gosh, shucks, ladies. I can’t even begin to thank all of you enough for voting for nutty old me as The Lesbian Lifestyle Lesbian Blog of the Year. I am truly honored and ridiculously touched by your support. If I could, I’d hug every single one of you with my legs in friendship. In fact, I’m overwhelmed with the kind of warm, fuzzy feelings normally reserved for when I see small woodland creatures or a station selling gas for under $3 a gallon. But, on the serious, y’all are awesome. I write Surrenders mostly as an exercise in getting the voices in my head to behave and wait their turn. Also, I like women. So, to me, exalting their excellence is more than just a hobby. It’s a mission. And now, on with this crazy show.

p.s. Seriously, folks, you don’t know the crazed ego monster you’ve undoubtedly unleashed with this win. Well, I’ll just let The Ditty Bops explain.


p.p.s. Proof of how insufferable I’ve become already, I totally and shamefully neglected to give the proper props to my fellow finalists. All these ladies are fan-fucking-tastic. I mean that. They’re all going on my blogroll and you should check them out immediately, if not sooner. This Girl Called Automatic Win, Hahn at Home, LesbianDad and Sugarbutch Chronicles, congratulations and it was an honor being nominated alongside you gals. You rock the lesbosphere.

p.p.p.s. Oh, and my big dumb swollen head also forgot to send extra special, super duper thanks to Goldstar Dyke who runs The Lesbian Lifestyle and coordinates the awards. I mean, heck, this year there were even prizes. I am so not worthy.

Many congratulations on the well deserved win.

Your blog and subsequent writings at AfterEllen.com are something I always look forward to reading.

Amanda said...

*cheesy announcer voice* "Dorothy Snarker, you've just won Lesbian Blog of the Year...what are you going to do???"

I've told you before how much I love and appreciate what you've created here. But I'll say it again, Thank you for taking the time to write this blog and showing girls like me that we're not alone in our little lesbo worlds. It's fun, sexy, informative, and witty. You're just as obsessed with the greatness that is Tina Fey and 30 Rock.. It's something great to wake up to. You deserve every award people can throw at you. Congratulations!

Anne said...

gypsywee said...

Neato! You're a winner Ms. Snarker. ;)

Polly said...

Adding mine to the copious congrats here.

I see the term "guilty pleasure" used in reference to your blog here, and while I am tempted to use it, too (my guilt: indulging in stuff relating to pop culture or celebrities; don't know what anyone else is guilty about), I don't think "guilty pleasure" is quite on the mark. It's just a pleasure to read your writing, period. It's chock-a-block with pizazz. Savoir faire. Élan. You name it.

Thanks for sharing the voices in your head (whether they trot out single file or tumble out in a heap).

Woop woop! well done you...

on another note - $3 to the gallon? are you kidding me? us Brits pay 4 times that, no word of a lie...

slacker said...

Congrats Ms. Snarker! Well deserved win.

Did it come with a tiara and sash, also? If so, I hope you're wearing them proudly today.

Slym said...

We always knew that you
ROCK and now you have the title to go along with it - it's only natural.

CONGRATS TO YOU YOUR HIGHNESS - U DEFINITELY RULE!!!

ROCK ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF!!

It feels real good to have been a part of this!

Go on and do that happy snoopy dance... oh and by the way, there's no way i'm gonna let that wrap your leg around each and every one of you slip by me... hell no, i'm too much of a perv... I'll take mine and all of the ones that any foolish enough would refuse..LOL... Sorry I just couldn't resist jumping on that one :)

You're the Best!

Congrats, Ms. S!! So well deserved. I am in awe of your wittiness and intelligence. And you can turn a phrase. Smart, funny women are so sexy. At least to me.

My vote meant nothing in 2000 and 2004. Here, my selection won.
