Introducing, The Cuppies!

As the calendar year comes to a close, I can't help but look back at nearly a full year of blogging and think, shit damn, it's time for some eponymous self-aggrandizing Blog awards. Why? Well, if Teddyballgame can do it, so can I. Naturally, these awards will be known as "The Cuppies".

Of course, the awards will include a reader's choice section, wherein you all, the veritable Cupcake Mafia, vote for your favorite posts, characters and blogs. I'm hoping this will also get some longtime shy readers to comment for the first time. So here's how it will go: vote for your favorites in each category in the comment section. If you don't see your choice listed as one of the nominees, write it in. If you win "Best Recurring Character" or "Best Blog" you can make you acceptance speech in the comment section. Winners will be announced after the New Year.

Here are the categories:

Oh What Fresh Humiliation is This?

Best Recurring Character

Vote for anyone whose name appears in pink on this blog. Nominees include friends like MuppetLover, SuperSkater,
Queenie, Mondo, family like Pop and Little Brother, and the miscellaneous: AM New York Guy, FedEx Guy, Cakeman Raven, etc...

Best Sidebar Blog

Vote for your favorite blog that I have in the sidebar. I update the sidebar periodically, so if your favorite is no longer listed, feel free to vote for it anyway. And of course, feel free to vote for yourself. A blog is nothing if not a gigantic exercise in egoism.

Ok, um, vote for my blog. If I win there will be soda in the water fountain and old school MTV on the intercom. Something like that. That's right, TV on the intercom.

i vote for kittenloss. less because the blog is actually entertaining and witty, and more because that josh guy is so good looking. hardee har har

Cupcake said...

Look Joshy, you're winning!

Ved, I hope you were being sincere otherwise I'll have to drive to Brookline and break bad on you. JoshedPotatoes is super cute!

Joshua said...

YAY!
Thanks Cupcake, you are a true blog-friend.
If I win best sidebar blog I will rule just and wisely I promise.

I guess I'll vote for Ved, even if she's kidding, 'cause a vote's a vote.
But I like "Confetti in my hair" too.

jesse said...

thanks josh, let's keep this snugglefest going.

I think that kitten loss has some things to say. One of my photo posts was inspired by you and your feelymouthed pal.

I also like the witty urbane stylings of Halfway to Human. Unfortunately Ved gets angry at BLOG and spends many days without posting a thing. Kittenloss probably wins.

Cupcake said...

Enough of this mutual adoration crap. If more people don't vote for The Cuppies, I'm going on blog posting strike.

-Josh, no need for obligatory votes here. I still think you are the bees knees.

Joshua said...

Thank you Ved. I painfully have to admit to not having read your blog all that often until today. But I promise that will change in the future. I will be an avid reader.

My votes are:

B
F

confetti in my hair

Also, Cupcake I wasn't a reader of your blog for many of these earlier posts, so that kinda limited my voting.
Your friends are way nice than mine.

Joshua said...

oh and for recurring character: it'd be POD even if you didn't list her.

I went and re-read each entry and after careful consideration, I submit my vote:

Cupcake said...

Josh, you are correct that my friends are pretty freakin' awesome, but yours are pretty nice. After all they put up with me leaving my sugar-frosted brain droppings all over their purty blogs.

Thanks for voting, y'all.

Kittenloss, honorable mention to davebgimp, whose stories about the gay penguin dream and the doggie umbrella brought me to tears.
