oh yeah, I forgot to mention...

... to commemorate another year of multiple nominations in a new media award event where I don't stand a snow ball's chance in hell of winning, I would like to announce the annual... 2011 CANNONBALL CATHOLIC BLOG AWARDS™©! ta da.



It's an annual tradition here on The Crescat, five years in the making, where I celebrate being completely under appreciated and snubbed in favor of that dude, what's his name, Peters-something-or-another.

It's a Blog Award for all us under appreciated types, and you are strictly forbidden from nominating anyone that has written a book... and that Peters guy. And fanciful cooking bird watching priests. And anybody else who has a blog better than me. So good luck with that.

*Rules, disclaimers, fine print and legalese: When making nominations please indicate category, blog name and include blog link. If you don't, I will not mark the nomination. Please do not email me nominations. Leave them in the comment box. In the past, I have excepted email nominations but it got too damn confusing. Also, try to avoid duplicate nominations. If you see some one already made the nomination you intended; spare us.

If you were nominated but wish to disassociate yourself as far away from me as possible, email me at the_crescat@yahoo.com. I will understand perfectly.

Nominees and winners of the 2011 Catholic Cannonball Awards™© receive no prizes, just the sweet sweet satisfaction that they were only slightly better than no one else really all that special. They reserve bragging rights and the distinction of being fantastical ordinary! Yay! You're an awesome average blogger. Enjoy your victory.

Voting will begin in a special poll on September 17, 2011. Remember, do NOT leave your votes in this comment box.

I was doing fine until I got to:
"If you were nominated but wish to disassociate yourself as far away from me as possible, email me at the_crescat@yahoo.com. I will understand perfectly."

...then I literally spew my tea all over my keyboard!

Puff, I did. Good catch. Thanks. I will fix the grammatical error.

The Ranter said...

note to self: picking up with Jen Ambrose's nominations later.

ALL: Please be patient. I am editing this post and adding each nomination as they come in. It takes time. If you made your nomination above, after Jen's, I will come back over the weekend and add them.

Thanks for all the wonderful nominations. I always love the new blogs that get linked to.

Southern Expat said...

My heart is full to bursting. Korrektiv was actually nominated for something!!!!! I was going for "Best use of Walker Percy's tombstone as the background" or "least optimistic about human nature" but I see I don't even need to make up a category.

Though soon as you add "best catechist blog", just move him over to that. :-).

Dwija {House Unseen} said...

How is this the first time I've seen your blog? So many hours of not-reading it wasted doing other lame things that don't even make me laugh!

As for the nominations, I tried to go through all the comments to make sure she hadn't already been nominated, but it's late. So I can't make any promises.

Anyway...

I'd like to nominate Calah at Barefoot and Pregnant ( http://barefootandpregnantblog.blogspot.com/ ) for Most Under a appreciated blog and/or Best New Kid on The Block .

I don't know if she's still considered new and I don't know if she's considered under appreciated, but I know I love her and I know she has no books written :)

Jennifer Ambrose, you are too kind.

I second Jennifer Fitz' nomination of Smaller Manhattans..

I nominate Marc Cardaronella for Best New Kid on the Block.

Betty Duffy needs a category to herself for "Most Frequent Occasion of the Sin of Envy" because her writing is incredible. I see that's been left off, though, so I will just nominate her for "Best Spiritual Treat."

DarwinCatholic for Best Potpourri of Popery.

Thanks for doing this!

love the girls said...

I appreciate Paul Stilwell's very nice compliment that I should update my blog more often.

But the internet online degree crawlers, (who are by far my most common and faithful readers), appear to be happy as clams accessing my older posts.

Not that I mind, in fact there's a certain pleasure in the irony of my most common readers being machines wholly incapable of understanding a word I write.

But I do wonder about the apparent requirement to constantly update since it appears to be part of the problem with our modern society of constantly renewing the gorging of our senses and appetites.
