The VIVI nominations are in.  Now it's time for the VULVI's or VULVAE, depending on your latin proclivities.

By the way, Mrs. Linklater has just perused the list of VIVI nominations and like she said earlier, a lot of the folks over there in her OTHER JOURNALS have been nominated. Unlike last year, there are also some people she's never heard of, which just says J-Land is getting bigger.

This year Mrs. L even got a couple of nominations herself -- THE MOST LIKELY TO START A PISSIN MATCH, and the coveted YOU GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT? award. Okay, no false modesty. 

I was nominated for Most Humorous, Best Use of Attitude, and Most Outspoken. I'm up against some of my favorite journals, so it's a mixed blessing to get this nomination as much as I deserve it. But I think a campaign of slander, rumor and innuendo ought to propel me into the winner's circle.

You can check out all the nominations with a click on the VIVI Nominations link over there at the bottom of the OTHER JOURNALS section.

When you're finished perusing the VIVI's, come back and make your VULVI nominations. Many thanks to bosoxblue6993w's inspired name for a new award that honors the best comments writer. I think the whole thing was all his concept as a matter of fact. Once again Mrs. Linklater can spot an idea worth stealing before anyone else. 

The VULVI honors the person who stops by, reads your journal, and leaves a one or two line comment that's funnier and usually better than your entry. 

My nominations for this award are:





Here's the deal. You have a week from tomorrow October 22, to add nominees for your favorite commenter.  Starting October 29th, the day before my birthday, you have one week to vote for the VULVI of your choice.

Put your nominees in the comments. Along with one of their comments that you think is especially VULVALICIOUS when you get a chance.  Or email it to me.

Meanwhile, I will find quotes for REMO, et al., that I think are good examples of how scary funny they can be.

And I will also ask each one of them to provide another one that they think is funny from anywhere they've left their scat in their wanderings around J-Land.

You have a week to make nominations.  Then there will be a week of voting.

Our motto this week: VIVI VULVI VOLUMINOUS

I refuse to vote.  I hate popularity contests.  But if I were voting, you and Remo would have some votes.

The Vulvae? I'm in over my head.

Hint, hint: October 30 is Mrs.L's birthday! (Thanks for the heads up, Mrs.L)

bluwave9 said...

No way.  I thought I saw your name under the "Most Likely To Stand Three Inches From Your Face While Saying 'Don't Take This The Wrong Way, But..." category.  And you're sober when ya do it, too.

Geezy, peezy... I think I need a secretary to keep up with everything going on in J-land right now.  Looking to be nominated for a VULVI???  Comments are now being taken at  ;-)

Mrs. L
Congratulations on your nominations for the VIVI Awards!  No matter what happens, you'll always be a winner in my book.  As for the VULVI's let me think and get back to you on that one.

bosoxblue6993w said...

schnozbeary said...

Umm. I would much rather have a graphic that says I'm a Vulvae winner. it just appeals to my prurient senses!! What a wonderful idea!!!! Penny

swibirun said...

I think Bosox just gave you the perfect example:O)


floralilia said...

jayveeconcerto said...

Or, did I mean the Vulvi's???

gullspirit said...

Vivi, vulvi, vaavoo: "seen one, seen'em all."  Right?  Oops -- maybe I'm in the wrong proclivity!

Anyway -- Great bloggin' AND congratulations on your nominations!

nightmaremom said...

Great work!  Congrats on your VIVA nomination. Good Luck

viviansullinwank said...

I'm sure glad I stopped by to congratulate you. I learned something...I thought the Vulvi awards were something porno...what a disappointment that they're something legit!  LOL
You rock Mrs. L. congrats on your VIVI nominations...let the slander begin!

I swear I love the way you slip female genetalia into your entries so seamlessly.  You have to know I nominated you for way more categories than where you are, dammit.  BUT at least you made the list, and you deserve it for giving me the daily spit take I need at work, along with the occasional snort.

I nominate Robbush6 for the vulva on this and many journals.  She's hilarious, and sometimes the comments are better than the entry.

I remember a time when we couldn't even say, 'vulvi' around here. My personal best was inspired by Karyn Taylor posing as Jean Chatzky, AOL's 2004 Money Honey, over at George's finance journal. Snot was flying. Ask anyone. I'll find the link.

Thank you for the nod at whatever this is. And thank you for laughing at my jokes.

robbush6 said...

Okay, this may not count. I was still rbushu back then and the journal was Lotzamoe's, not George's. It was so funny, I forgot everything about it. Go figure.

Dear Mrs. Linklater,
In my humble opinion, you have no contest here. The hands down winner of your Vulvi Award is The Belfast Cowboy.
Your other nominees can’t compete. Period.

He can be quite mischievous in his comments, as clearly seen in my  “Not Such a great week” entry:
“What is W doing behind her in that last one? Puppeteering, pulling her Chatty Cathy ring, or undoing her bra strap?”

He can be absolutely sexy as demonstrated in my  “Thongs” entry:
“I would really like to buy that bear to uh, you, know, give to my, uh, grand-niece.”

He can also wax poetic when he quoted Cervante’s Don Quixote in my “Wound’s, Part1” entry:
“Did my lady think to put me to a test?
Ah, sweet sovereign of my captive heart. I shall
not fail thee, for I know...

I have dreamed thee too long,
Never seen thee or touched thee.
But known thee with all of my heart.
Half a prayer, half a song,
Thou hast always been with me,
Though we have been always apart.

Dulcinea... Dulcinea...
I see heaven when I see thee, Dulcinea,
And thy name is like a prayer
An angel whispers... Dulcinea... Dulcinea!”

But this one alone should win him a Vulvi, or as he calls it… a Vulva Award:)

“Did Cheney in a diaper and Brownie the turd leave the party together?”
Check out “The Sounds of the Season” for his response to that little number.

Sorry but the rest are second rate. All of his comments ROCK!

The Cowboy is definitely armed and dangerous. Mrs. L

monponsett said...

Not only should I win this award... it should be named after me. On Weekend Assignment days, I do little else.
