That is about the best possible outcome, in my humble opinion. Unless it could have been a seven way tie (I believe there were seven running)....
The Ironic Catholic won (!) the
Cannonball Award 2011 for
Most HiFreakinLarious Blog,
tied with LarryD of Acts of the Apostasy!
As the Crescat decrees: Fine print: Nominees and winners of the 2011 Catholic Cannonball Awards™© receive no prizes, just the sweet sweet satisfaction that they were only slightly better than no one else really all that special. They reserve bragging rights and the distinction of being fantastical ordinary! Yay! You're an awesome average blogger. Enjoy your victory.
On that high point, I'm not posting again this week (well, Friday's QOTD is set up to go). Big things, work wise and home wise, are eating up my free blogging time. But I hope to be back at it next week, with a great announcement. And hey, thanks everyone. This blog is really fun to do, a funky spiritual work of mercy (puncturing self-importance, you know), and I appreciate the validation.
And congrats to many friends of the blog who also won (and condolences to those who didn't--I voted for you, honest!) The deep moral lesson (?) here is that there are lots of "lesser known" great bloggers out there: go out, explore, and read!
