I just put nail polish on my fingers, can you tell that I am typing prettier?  Well, I am.  I'm even holding my little pinkie fingers out like a prim and proper lady.  Why am I getting all gussied up you ask?

Because I have been nominated for an AOL Journals Vivi Award, thats why!

And what exactly is a Vivi Award?

The Vivi Awards (named after AOL's Journal Pioneer and Fairy Godmother/Queen Vivian) are awards given to Bloggers by their peers for Achievement and Excellence. 

Okay, thats not the actual, official description, I just made it up based on myself.....

But it is a Readers Choice thing, and a blogger or blog can only make the ballot if they had been nominated by a fellow blogger.  The categories are few and the competition tough.

Last year I was nominated for and won  for the Best Family Journal.  My litter of Oompas have since mutated and are no longer Family Value Poster Children so my blog 'Dust Bunny Club of North America' has instead been nominated in the 'Humorous' category.  And as I pointed out in the preceding paragraph, the competition is really tough so unless my Dust Bunnies all manage to sign up for AOL accounts in time to cast their votes I doubt I shall be hanging another Vivi Medallion on my side bar.

Too bad there wasn't a 'Most Dustball' category, or  'Most Entries about Flatulance and Other Bodily Functions'.  I would be a shoo in for either of those awards.

Oh well, its not about winning, its about the journey that got us here in the first place.  (my PR manager told me to write that).

For the blogger who nominated me, Thanks!  To all of my loyal readers who are going to vote for me (hint hint!)  Thanks also.  To those of you who have never been here but just came to check me out through the link on the Nomination blog... vote for me and I will kiss your baby, or your dog, or your baby and your dog... or your baby dog... I don't care, I'll kiss what ever I have to for your vote.  And for my opponents who have come by to spy on the Dust Bunny campaign.... I know where you blog!  Hehehehehe!

Seriously though, I appreciate the nomination and am tickled pink from my freshly polished fingernails right down to my font color.

For a list of nominees for each of the categories click here: 2006 VIVI AWARD JOURNAL .  There are some great journals there.  Pick a link, any link... even one you've never visited before.  I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Congratulations and good luck to all of the Vivi nominees.

Regardless of the Oompas misbehaving teen years -- you manage to find funny in everything.  Good luck!

I didn't get nominated. They discontinued the "Only Canadian Journal We Can Find" category. Oh well. Congratulations, Dorn.

Hi there, fellow nominee...

I'd just like to congratulate you on becoming a nominee for the, '2006 Vivi Awards' and wish you the very best of luck on voting day. I know how excited you must be, because I too was voted for, in the 'Best Video Blog' catagory.

If you want to see exactly how excited I was, check out my video response here:

As my blog is less than one month old and it doesn't have very many viewers yet, perhaps you could help me out and increase my chances in the 'Best Video Blog' catagory come voting day, by sharing the link to my blog with all of your friends, but only if you enjoy it, of course. If you could do that for me, I'd be ever so grateful.

Here it is...

Once again, all the best and good luck with the votes on, 2nd November...

YAY for you, and I think the catagory you are in fits, as you always make me laugh.
I was nominated also.. most missed journal.  I guess being gone awhile helped me to get a nomination this year. :)  not a plan but hey I'll take what I can get.

Good to be back and I have SOOOOOOO much catching up to do.
