Speaking of...

Speaking of "speaking of"...

Just wanna take a second here to send a little shout-out to our old friend Diesel - who has been nominated as one of the 10 finalists in the 2008 Weblog Awards for Best Humor Blog.

Starting right now, you should go *here* to vote for Diesel at Mattress Police once a day, every day for the next 10 days. And if you do, he stands a good chance of being crowned the humoriest blogger on the web. And since he is indeed one of the humoriest bloggers I know, I believe he rightly deserves to win this esteemed award.

I feel I kind of owe him a little bloggy love since a very large portion of my traffic and new friends come from his Humor-Blogs.com site (the one I'm constantly bugging you about clicking the smiley thingy). But Diesel has also given me more than that. For instance:

Back in February '07 he was kind enough to invite me to contribute to his Central Snark website. Unfortunately, 3 months after I came on board it closed its doors.

Then, back in March '08 he once again invited me to be part of his Clay Pigeon Magazine editorial staff. However, just a few weeks later it was shut down as well.

Hmm, on second thought, I'm wondering if Diesel wants my endorsement after all.


Speaking of endorsements...

Kinda nice to be acknowledged for my efforts :-)



Speaking of magazines...

Oh my, what do they know that I don't know?!!!

Speaking of the end of things...

So I guess that means the Vikings lost then? (ducking)

Is that a real magazine? (I can't tell if you're serious or joking sometimes!) If it is, congrats!

Mooselet said...

I'm thinking that you should change your name to Typhoid Jeff with that kind of track record.

Who am I kidding - I'm just insanely jealous you get a magazine cover and invited to blog with cool bloggers. I'm going to go cry quietly in a corner now.

Jeff said...

Heather - A good rule of thumb with me is to always assume I'm not serious first, as I rarely am. Like in this case... with the fake magazine cover.

Mooselet - Ironically right now I have a horrible cough and I just very well may have come down with typhoid fever!

Diesel said...

I'm laughing here, not having realized that I was giving you a complex. The Snark wasn't really my baby but, yeah, I'll take the hit on CP. I overextended myself there.

Thanks much for the shout-out, friend. And those of you who haven't voted yet (today), head over there now!

Just Sayin' said...

Jeff as a life long Bears fan I would just like to encourage you to continue being a Vikings fan.

In fact you should probably redouble your efforts in that regard. I'm sure there is somethiong you can do to be a better Vikings fan.

If you think about it hard enough, I'm sure you can come up with something.

I always thought you were a player. :-)

Michelle said...

*sigh* That was such a sad game. How did they not score in the second half? (Although granted I missed much of it thanks to my husband who decided to leave me home alone with the wee ones all afternoon.) But hey... I don't think I could have justified the price of Super Bowl tickets right now anyway ;)

I've become a magazine cover with personal photos addict. I put a pic of my MIL holding her big Walleye on the cover of Outdoors magazine with a caption of Sportsman of the Year. It was way cool.

Have you ever been rammed by a ram? It's not a pleasant experience from what I've heard. I always advise people, if you encounter a pack of wild rams, it is usually best to just go up to them and lay down in the fetal position.

JD at I Do Things said...

Awesome mag cover. I've got an idea for one of my own . . . but I'm holding out for the real thing.

Someone needs to tell Doozie that is NOT a Ram helmet.

Jeff said...

Diesel - You won't think it's so funny when I send you the bill for my therapist.

Just Sayin' - I don't know that I have anything left to give. :-(

Jacki - Exactly ;-)

Michelle - *snort* Did you say Super Bowl?!!! Hahahaha!!! Oh wait... were you serious?

Mom Thumb - I agree. I'm just going to do that from now on for everyone's birthday gifts. I should be able to get away with it at least 15 or 20 times.

Doozie - Uh... what Jen said. Although getting rammed by a wild viking would not feel any better.

JD - Just lemme know when you're there. "...gonna buy 5 copies for my mother..."

Jen - Done! But in her defense, she's has been hit by wild rams a few times.

Football died? About time!

The Humor Blog category looks like a runaway for Comics Curmudgeon. Maybe next year is your year for a nomination, you player, you. Remember, hate the game, not the playa.

Elizabeth said...

Is it football season??

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

Oh, are you a musician? Prepare to be stalked by Meg.

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

JK. I know you're a musician. That explains the therapy more than anything. ;)

The trouble with eating microphones is that they're actually quite chewy...

Oh...and did your 'Last Issue' have a subscription leaflet in it? Ironic...

Maureen said...

"Player" magazine ????

Why the heck did *I* see it as "PlayGirl"???

(apologies Charli) ;)

The Vikings were done when Tomlin left. Thanks, Vikings.
