Um, yeah, so I'm kind of a big deal...

Sometimes, I check Sitemeter to make sure my mom's not reading as per our legal agreement. Guess what I learned when I logged on today? Bee-Spot has been nominated for a 2007 Okie Blog Award! I know, right? Obvs this is award winning blog (potentially/not). No? That's not what you were thinking? Oh. In any case, I'm truly surprised as I didn't threaten anyone to nominate me or anything. Not even my mom. I'm not sure how it happened (or why Mr. Shain didn't stop it because of his unbridled and unrivaled jealousy), but I'm relieved that I can now wear my "I'm kind of a big deal" t-shirt legitimately. And really, it's just an honor to be nominated because the bloggers of Oklahoma would have to be crazy not to vote for the The Lost Ogle, my favorite site re: the OKC.

Oooh, look at you! Be sure to have a speech ready, because you don't want to have to thank people off the top of your head. You'll always forget someone, ya know.

CGHill said...

Geez. Now I have to wonder if Blythe's mom is reading my site.

Tony said...

I was glad to see that Bee-Spot got nominated, and you've got my vote in the humor category.

But that's just because we can't vote for ourselves, of course. We will crush you like an elephant walking over a grape.

For my money, and in all seriousness, this blog should've been nominated for Best Writing. Keep up the good work.

The Practical Slacker said...

Well done!

*patting enthusiastically on back*

CrimeNotes said...

Please thank me in your acceptance speech.

I can't believe this shit, but I'm not going to be allowed to vote. It seems that some fancy-schmancy lawyer type has decided that I am not, by the letter of the law, an "Okie blogger." Ridiculous.

Beau said...

I'm definitely thinking they meant to put you in the inspirational category.

Siobhlogger said...

wow! congrats! please don't forget me when you are famous and having an award-shining party with Perez Hilton and Ariana Huffington. Perhaps in the future you can hire mama bee-spot to work for you on the blog, just like Perez did!

Mr. Shain said...

Big congratulations! And I can’t believe you were nominated in the same category as Britney’s VMA performance and Terry Shaivo’s (former) blog.

Mr. Shain said...

oh, almost forgot Michigan's 2007 football season too!

Dan said...

I could have sworn Terry Schiavo responded to one of my blog comments once.

blythe said...

clinton - where would i be without you? i remember the first day you were linked on gawker so long ago...

cg - oh, she is. and then some. i have no idea what that means.

tony - yeah, i kind of expected best overall layout since i've got that totally sweet/stolen picture of a wheat field, but whatevs, i'll take what i can get. but yeah, i will be crushed. but happily. and best writing? perhaps for the blind.

pracslack - thanks, yo!

crimenotes - don't tell clinton, but it's all for you.

michael5k - so, i expect that you'll be making the move to OK soon?

beau - inspired to be a tard? yeah, i know.

siobhlogger - as long as you don't forget that chris fisher is my future husband. maybe you should let him know. oh dear. must sit down. too cute.

mr shain - ...

mr shain - ...

vtk - well, miracles do happen. like the fact that people actually read this shit who aren't in comas.

Mr. Shain said...

oh come on, that was comment GOLD! i made this damn blog... you were nothing with out my comments! NOTHING... oh look, a bottle of wine....

blythe said...

yes, let's talk about that bottle of wine and the look of absolute contempt/disgust with which you accosted our poor waitress when she offered to pour. i thought you were going to kill her with your eyes.

fine, comment gold. at least you're good for something.

crimenotes said...

He's good for being an assface.

There's wine in Oklahoma?

blythe said...

what, you're born and bred manhattan? zing!

Mr. Shain said...

to increase my assfacery, i admitt i import my own merlot. there's always a bottle floating around my desk on week nights when i'm doing my serious research.

crimenotes said...

We didn't have wine where I came from. That's why I condemn wine. It's fancy.

JHC said...

I guess it's time to get those "Team Whimsy" bumper stickers printed up as well.
Y'all do have bumpers down there, don't you?

blythe said...

shain - also increasing your assfacery, "admitt" - ha! i kid because i love.

CN - right on. olde english all the way. pour that shit in a wine glass.

jhc - yeah, on our horses.

Step Right Up said...

Congrats! The Lost Ogle who?

JHC said...

Giddy-up!
(sorry)
