I’ve Been Nominated AGAIN!

26 Mar

Nominate her, or I'll get angry. And you don't want to see me when I'm angry.

Okay, everyone, now you’re spoiling me! But I don’t mind being spoiled. In fact, I love it. So any further nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award (or any other blogging award—don’t be shy!) will be very gratefully accepted.

Thank you so much to DogDaz for the nomination, but also much, much more. Firstly, she put up a blog yesterday that alerted me to the fact that the three bags of dog treats I had recently bought would potentially give my beloved pup kidney failure…or worse. For that alone she deserves a Medal of Honor, in my opinion.

But she also does something else—I must admit, to keep myself sane at work, I frequently look at two websites: ICanHasCheezburger and ICanHasHotdog. These silly sites with pics of cute cats and dogs have “captions” written by people but made to seem like they’re written by the animals. AND they are frequently misspelled, because they’re animals, geddit?

DON’T JUDGE. If you’d written as many blogs as I have about mold remediation, pastrami sandwiches, criminal activity and homeowners insurance (to just name a few) plus websites on such delightfully fascinating topics as wireless technology and freight forwarding, you’d look at silly dog and cat pictures too.

And NOW I have DogDaz too! She posts at least one absolutely darling photo of animal gorgeousness each day. And for that I also thank her.

So, in honor of DogDaz, her kindred love of all things four-legged and furry and her nomination, I dedicate this blog post to my pets. Yes, you can stop reading now if you want to. Although I must admit that the cat is such a freaking poser the pics have turned out quite well.

Seriously, he would sit there all day posing for pics.

And now for the dog:

Miss Kayla

      Thank you, thank you–as a proud mother, it’s hard to be objective!

    So cute! That cat is a poser! You are right! Do they get along?

    • tinykitchenstories March 28, 2012 at 10:52 pm #

      You should have seen him while I was taking the pics–totally presenting me with each profile.

      It’s taken a few years, but now the cat (Lenin) gets along with the dog (Kayla). She is like his annoying little sister, and he tolerates her. But then sometimes you see them be really sweet to each other…. 🙂

    Congrats! You deserve it with all the tantalizing things you post. One day in the far off distance I might sport one of those award thingys. Until then I will watch you blossom and enjoy your adorable animals and kitchen antics. Congrats to you 😉

      Well, thank you so much! I’m not sure what I like more–that people like my food posts or think my animals are cute! Either way, I’m very ‘chuffed’ as they say in the UK!

    Love the photos of the animals!

      Thank you! The dog keeps me sane, the cat is like the other half of my Odd Couple, we’ve been together so long. I love all the comments I’ve gotten on my “kids”!

    […] reasons that I make vegan cupcakes is because the recipe book I have has recipes for 12 cupcakes. Martha Stewart, listen up. Not everyone needs to make 38 effing cupcakes in a batch. I’m not hosting a bake […]

Does it make you hungry, baby?
