Totally Choice

Whaaaat? No, seriously. What? I, like, kind of won. OK, I didn’t win-win. I’m not going to get a trophy in the mail. And I wasn’t on TV. (Thank God for that.) But I was the NewNowNext Awards “Most Totally Rad Sickest Blog Ever” Audience Choice Award winner. OK, first let me say that given the big boy competition I had, I had totally written off the NNNA and didn’t even watch Saturday night (sorry, Logo!) I was out that night and knew that dlisted had already won the big prize, so I figured I’d go online Sunday morning to see who took home the Audience Choice (my money was on towleroad). But, lo and behold, when I came home later that night I opened my email and there were congratulations. And not the kind from the Cote D’Ivoire where the heirs of a rich prince needs to use your bank account to deposit untold millions. But the actual winning kind. Crazy, I know.

(If you, like me, cannot quite believe it, click to watch the segment and keep an eye on the bottom left-hand corner. My fellow nominated AfterEllen ladies Bridget, Jill and 3Way all got shut out of the main NNNA, but also took home Audience Choice Awards. Watch the whole thing at logoonline.com.)

As astonished as I am at taking home the Audience Choice Award, I am even more thankful to you. That’s right, you. No, don’t look over your shoulder. I mean you. Thank you, thank you. Y’all deliver like Domino’s when it comes to this voting business. I should really tip better. What is so great about this honor is that it comes from you. Yes, you. Don’t make me go through the turning around, false modesty thing again. You know it’s all you. And, really, that’s what makes it special. I’m endlessly thankful and, quite frankly, amazed that you keep coming back day after day. So, thank you. You are the Most Totally Rad Sickest Readers Ever.

Congratulation!! I've been reading your blog since last year I think and now that I have an internet connection I check your blog daily. I'm sorry I didn't vote though, just because I wasn't aware of the contest in the first place. :p Anyway, congratulations and keep on blogging!

Claudia said...

I'm really happy you won Ms Snarker, I voted like crazy, because you really deserved it... :)

Pyewacket said...

I was a crazy voter too! lol Once I found out that multiple...ummm, votes...were allowed...I got busy! :)

You deserve that acknowledgement in the lower left hand corner of the tv screen! :D

Can anyone point me toward a simple list of who won what? I really don't want to watch all of the segments and go through a lot of fluff to get to the good stuff (for me).

Pyewacket said...

Okay, forget my query for a simple list because I clicked around on Ms. Dorothy's various links until I found what I was looking for!

At least the majority of my picks won the audience choice awards, which goes to show that the audience has better taste! A Shot at Love won the Nexty award over 3Way!? Really??? But maybe it is better to know that the audience loves you, isn't that where the real power is anyway?

Congratulations on the much deserved win for the "audience choice" award... you and the rest of our ladies from After Ellen are the best and only getting better!

I'm happy to say that due to currently being unable to watch my TV (major renovations in my home) I was able to view the awards in the best way... by watching the highlights and picking and choosing what I wanted to see over at Logo Online. Since the coolest winners were the "audience choice" winners, I'm happy to say that I didn't miss all that much by watching the show in its entirety!

Keep on blogging, 'cause in my book you're Number 1!

Packrat said...

Aw, sweet! Congratulations, Dorothy!

Lezlie Mac said...

Yeah, just like you, we're rad, and sick. And obsessed with voting for thing/people/blogs worth voting for !
Hence the crazy obsessive multiple votes. Congrats.

Do you think we avid readers come back to this very blog pretty much everyday because :
a/we randomly browse over the net and end up here, lost?
b/we are forced to do so under some deadly nukular pandemic threat?
c/it's so damn good we can't get enough of it ?

I vote C. Keep it coming!

not only but also said...

*pops cork*
My, my. This sounds like a time for a celebration. Fabulously well done, Ms S. Yes, I did vote early and often and I'm delighted the carpal tunnel has paid off.
Cheers!
