Well, the Vivis are starting to be old news by now. It's time to announce the winner of the VULVIs. Remember them?
The purpose of the VULVIs, besides walking a very thin line between
tastefulness and trashiness, is to acknowledge the people who
CONSISTENTLY make the funniest comments in your journal. So funny, that
they render the entry you wrote useless. Why did you even bother?
To refresh your memory, the four
nominees are Screaminremo303, Robbush6, Belfastcowboy75 and
Bosoxblue6993w. There are a couple of other write-in nominations which
I will track down and throw into the pile. Give me awhile to do the
links. I can't do them from here. I have to change browsers.
Here's the dilemma. How are we
going to choose a winner from among this auspicious group? The VIVIs
had a boatload of volunteers, fancy voting software, and a chat room to
announce the winners.
Not the VULVIs. We're on a budget. We've got an empty fridge and some
stale crackers. Personally, I think Mrs. Linklater should put the
nominees' names in a hat and pick the winner that way. It's fast. It's
easy. And the result will no doubt be just as shocking as some of the
VIVI award winners.
Glad you like that idea. Mrs.
Linklater and I will do the selection this evening. Wait a minute, I AM
Mrs. Linklater. Well, one of us will handle the voting for sure. Then,
we'll announce the winner TOMORROW.
Meanwhile, here are the answers you're dying to read.
1. What is the last big "gift" you bought for yourself...either for your birthday, Christmas, or any other holiday?
That little TV I wrote about. It was close to my birthday. Big Whoop.
2. Of the official Vivi Award Categories, if you had to nix one of them, which would you choose?
I'm with skelligrants on this one
-- who needs a most missed journal category. If you don't write, I
don't miss you. I just get annoyed. Maybe that's another new
category. Most annoying. I wouldn't tie for that one. Remo would win it
3. Which category would you add that isn't on the list this year?
Most gratuitous use of sexual innuendo. Not to be confused with glorious use of innuendo. How about best recipes instead?
4. Take this quiz: Which soap opera does your life most resemble?
The last time I watched the soaps I was nursing my babies and there
wasn't anything else on TV. This was deep into the last century, before
cable and TIVO.
Oh, I forgot -- my life resembles The Young and the Restless.
5. Have you ever heard a song and
thought, "Whoever wrote that must know me?" If so, what song was
it, and do you still feel that way?
Pointer Sisters -- DARE ME. It starts out, GOT A CHIP ON MY SHOULDER WITH YOUR NAME ON IT, KNOCK IT OFF.
Haaaaaaaaa. Those lyrics have my name all over them.
6. If your birthday had to fall on
a holiday each year, which holiday would you choose and why? (For
this question, assume that holidays like "Thanksgiving," which fall on
a different date each year, would fall on the same date to accommodate
I was born the day before
Halloween. I've celebrated my birthday on Halloween so many times that
even my dad thought my birthday was on Halloween.
Have I ever sung my Halloween carols for you? Be ever so thankful.
