THE CHROMOS AWARDS



Mrs. Linklater wants to steal another one of Bosox's ideas. Actually he hasn't given her permission to steal it yet, but here goes anyway.


He may have topped his VULVI idea with The [loud fluorish] CHROMOS Awards. You'll find them mentioned by him in the comments a couple of entries back. Mrs. L thinks the name is a combination of CRONY and COSMOS. Although she knows Bosox would not agree.


However, instead of stealing all Bo's ideas, which included, among others, the Bag Lady of the Blog, an award Mrs. L would win hands down, given her age and lack of finances, she thought a CHROMOS could be awarded to a journal that should have been nominated for a VIVI, but wasn't. For whatever reason. We were too stupid, for instance.

[Finally something Remo can't win.] 


So, as far as she is concerned, there are two deserving journals that fit into some category of greatness, but were not nominated for it. 


The first is ONE WAY PASSAGE, which you can link to over in Other Journals. 


And the second is What the hell. . .? Which can also be linked to from Other Journals. 


Here are three more from Bosox, which in the interest of sucking up to him, have links so you can let him know if they're each worth a CHROMOS. Not that he'll care if you don't like them.

HORSESHOE BEND 

Liza's Life  

Theresa Williams-author

UPDATE by popular demand: Separation Anxiety
 

Now, if only Mrs. L can get Andi [artloner] to make the knob fit into a sidebar.

Originally, Mrs. Linklater thought that a statue made from the chrome fender off an old Chrysler would make a perfect symbol for a CHROMOS. But who has time for that?

So this picture of the knob from a Fender guitar will have to do.


See what happens when you Google "chrome fender"?

Wild woman... Me loves you! [:D]

I was nominated, thus disqualified. Though, no one digs a party quite like me. [:P]

I came here when I heard, "Mrs. L has posted a photograph of one of her knobs." My interest wasn't as prurient as it sounds--I wanted to see if you had somehow defied 62 years of gravity and managed to click the camera before the teat headed floorward. Stratocasters are works of art, but their knobs, while shiny, do not cause me to drool and slobber.

Jon? I second that emotion.

Frankly, stealing it from Bosox has given it some class.  I would hate to see what he would have done with ... the truth is I KNOW what he would have done with it.  He has wickedly laughed about it for three days.  Pennie

The voting for next year's VULVIs hasn't started yet. But you'd never know it.  Mrs. L

bluwave9 said...

I just knew you were going to snatch this one up and run with it.  A day late and a dollar short, eh?

swibirun said...

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away. While we have enough awards around here to choke a small dog, we can never have too many theme songs.

mombzbe said...

OOOOH, I love shiny small things!

At least that's what I said when I agreed to marry him...

You are some kinda woman, Mrs. L!  Flashing your knobs and Vulvi all over J-Land, and you don't care WHO sees 'em!  LOL!  You go, girl!
Oh... BTW... I kind of included you and your Vulvi in my entry this morning.  I hope you don't mind...
