Deer Cupcake Award

Among blog awards, none is more prestigious and coveted than the Deer Cupcake Award!

Actually, the first I heard of it was when the great Neolibrarium awarded it to this blog back on June 5th, three eternities ago in blog time!

Now, this award is not entirely received by grace. In order to accept it, I must do some works of obedience, to wit:

  • I must answer all the following questions on this blog,

  • I must replace one question I dislike with a question of mine own invention,

  • and then I must add one additional question. Eventually, some poor blogger, who seeks to accept this award, will wind up having to answer a hundred questions, huh? But not today!

So, here goes. Some of these lies are true:

1). What is your current obsession?
I've been obsessed with helping my wife survive the school year. It's been a very rough one.

2). Where are you right now?
Kermit, Texas, in front of the computer. Where else?

3). Coffee or tea?
Sweet tea with ice. The larger the better.

(Odessa, July 4th.)

4).What’s one of your favorite movies?
The new Star Trek. Also, anything that shows up on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

5). What’s one thing you’re looking forward to?
A date night with Liz.

6). Who was your childhood crush?
The first one ever? Probably Kate Jackson as Daphne Harridge on Dark Shadows.

7). What is your (current) favorite Song?
"Wonders Never Cease" by Morcheeba.

8). What would you like to get rid of?
Excess pounds. And Widget, our mama cat. (See method illustrated below.)

9). What’s your favorite book?
Chick tracts are unique little pieces of Americana. Now I can read 'em all online and spend the rest of my day going "HAW HAW" to my (rapidly decreasing) circle of friends.

(SEE BONUS PARODY: The Satellite of Love discovers Chick's world.)

10). Why did you start your blog?
It all started when I discovered that ...

  • My city has a Muppet on its watertower.

  • "Weird Al" Yankovic belongs to my faith.

  • None of the above. I just like to hear myself yammer.

11). If money was not an issue, what is one thing you would purchase for yourself?
A movie theatre to show weird films. In Kermit. It would lose lots of money.
Also, I'd start a restaurant called "Woulda Coulda Shoulda", where you always wish you had ordered what someone else ordered.

12). If you could live in a foreign country, which one would you choose?
Djibhouti. I like the name.

13). What is one trait about yourself that you wish you could change?
I start things but I never seem to finis

14). Chocolate of choice?
Peanut M&M's.

15). What is one thing you've changed your mind about in the last ten years? I now think Journey was a pretty good band. I used to hate them.

16). What is one thing you've changed your mind about in the last ten days? I now think Keith Richards and Willie Nelson will outlive every last one of us.

17) If you had to choose between books and movies and could only read or view one or the other the rest of your life, which would you choose?
Books. Of course.

Okay. Now, in turn, I offer the Deer Cupcake Award to three wonderful blogs: The Blog Prophet for always being thought-provoking and funny, jel's place for saying so much without words, and Loom & Wheel just for being great. Have a great summer, everybody! HAW HAW!
