DUDE!

My little blog has been recognized as a hot, rockin' blog. Hard to believe, I know. And yet, I present to you my brand new bit of bling - the Awesome Dude Blogger badge!

Wicked cool, eh?

But while I bask in the glow of the shiny new blogger award, let me give props to the man who passed it along to me, cause he really is the awesomest, dudiest blogger around. His daily writings on light bulbs, refrigerators, lawn sprinklers, and other seemingly mundane elements of life are turned into terrific stories every time he sits down at the keyboard. So my shout out of gratitude goes to Jonathan over at Dorky Dad. Thanks, dude!

And now I get the fun of declaring another guy as a totally Awesome Dude Blogger. And that's easy to do. This guy lives just a short drive north of me. And though we've never met, I've gotten to know him quite a bit through his writings. He entertains with his stories of putting his mechanic's kids through Harvard with his car repairs and his secret interest in Rebecca De Mornay in Risky Business. But mostly he shares stories of his two great kids (Peanut and The Champ) and his lovely bride, Mrs. Joe. Plus he is a fan of the Patriots and the Red Sox - what could be more awesome than that?!?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Above Average Joe. It is an honor to slap this award on him.

And by the way, you can actually choose your bling. You can grab the button above, or you can try the more subtle and dignified style and use this button:


Either way, you also get the chance now to pass along the props and recognize another Awesome Dude Blogger.

Spread the love.

Honestly, thanks for the award. Now I just have to learn how to post the bling in my blog.

You RULE! Em, well deserved; I would've given the award to you myself, but I only thought there was rockin' blogger girls (with the hot pink button). How sexist of me. No matter how evolved you may be, a hot pink button is just not man enough--even if it says you rule. :)

Em said...

Thanks, guys!

Gretchen, you have sensed my manliness, I can tell. I could wear pink...but you may be right, it just doesn't scream "man" the way it should.

Maybe I should get the blog badge as a tattoo?? LOL

CS said...
