cage match battle to the death...

... an update. Things are heating up in the 2009 Cannonball Awards:

Minnosota Mom and Mulier Fortis slug it out while Sancte Sanctis is coming up from behind to determine who truly is the most underappreciated.

The Ancoress and Catholic Key go head to head for the title of best political blog.

Southern Appeal joins the battle with The Cavemen and Fr. Erik while the threesome duke it out for the title of most church militant.

But the big story here, folks, is whether The Crescat can prevent the Diabolical Digital Hairshirt from stealing her crown as the Queen of Bat Shit Crazy.

Oh, dear. Is my burning desire to win becoming a spectacle?

VOTE FOR SANCTA SANCTIS!!! It'll only get more entertaining, people!

Careful, CC, the brunette on top looks like me.

Did I mention that I'm dying and only hope to see the end of these terrific awards so I can congratulate all the wonderful winners?

Somedays I try to day dream my pain away with thoughts of Make-a-Wish Foundation coming to my aid and seeing to it that I too could receive one of these wonderful awards - even if it only it was an honorable mention or an honorary degree of some sort.

I sometimes go so far as to imagine myself graciously accepting my award and then offering it to Fr. Z, sort of as my last act of charity. You see, none of this is about me at all. The pretending seems to help however, and some days - oh, just for a few moments maybe - my pain appears to subside a bit, imagining the wonderful smile on Father's face.

Don't worry about me friends - and you are my friends. You are all so wonderful, I just wish I could vote for every single one of you. And as I said once before, for me it is a wonderful honor just to have been nominated, by such thoughtful and carring people like all of you.

OHHHHHHHH! There's one of those severe pains again - but I'll make it. I'll make it. Don't worry about me.

Scrounging for pity votes, Terry?

Hmmmm. That gives me an idea!

The Digital Hairshirt said...

Cannonball, with enough alcohol . . . probably.

BTW, the comment by Terry above really touched me. I mean, I am moved and feel the compassion welling inside of me. Terry . . . I'm gonna light a candle for you. And not even a votive, one of the big $1 ones. No, don't thank me, save your strenght.

Terry Nelson said...

Thanks Didgit - and may I call you Didgit?

Terry,
I hear that a large, famous university in Indiana is passing out honorary doctorates.

Terry Nelson said...

Dino - I'm there!

Carolina Cannonball said...

Terry- don't let Digi fool you. Everyone knows the big candles cost $3 bucks & the The $1 don't work.

Not only is your suffering worth two dollars more to me, in my pious mercy, I will write your name in our parish family book of prayers.

Now, vote for me!

Terry Nelson said...

Okay. Thanks.

Nod said...

Ok, cool. My vote's in.

Can I nominate myself to be listed in your sidebar Carolina Cannonball? That'd be cool: Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

The Digital Hairshirt said...

Terry,

$3 candles?!?! Obviously, CC belongs to an affluent parish where such extravanganzas are available.

*Sigh* - if only I had such an option. But vote for me, and I can get at least a dozen abuelitas praying a novena for your health. And making you up some yerba buena tea . . .

Carolina Cannonball said...

oooo. dirty, Digi. I've got a few Puerto Rican granmas too ya know. I raise your Abuelitas with mine and throw in some nice cocoa leche and dozen rosaries and one velvet painting of Madonna with sequins glued to Her crown!

Wow - I thought that picture was going to be accompanied by an article about how a traditional Catholic woman was assaulted by a liberal Catholic for the offense of questioning the guitar masses...
