No More Awards... please!

Just a quick announcement to let you know that I cannot accept any more awards for this blog.

I've never gotten very many of them in the past, but I've seen this kind of notification on other blogs and I always think it's very impressive, since it seems to hint that I've had loads of awards.
Anyway, I genuinely fear with the new look, sexy background and brilliant fonts on this blog that I may soon get overwhelmed with awards, and they mightn't go with the new image. So please imagine I'm holding one hand up in a dainty but firm "Thanks but no thanks" kind of gesture

Memes and awards both seem to have fallen off the edge of blogland of late... have we all got that mature? have we all got so many more important things to say? maybe it's just me, and the circles I mix in.
Here's a meme - name your top three favourite memes of all time
1. The one where you have 10 eclectic facts and one's a lie.
2. The poetry bus... though it's so much more than a meme and soon to be a magazine for god's sake.
3. Poems in Shops!! Coming again in December, can't hardly wait!

go on - sure for aul times sake.

you know on the awards- its that I don't have much time these days with college classes. I'm posting daily, and I think I'd rather use my time for my writing purposes even though I feel very privileged to recieve an award for my blog- its just difficult to keep up with them and post to everyone, then go through all the people I'd give the award to. it takes some time to do it...and I don't have much of it.

NanU said...

Alright, I won't send you an award if you don't send me one.
Yea! Poems in shops! Love that one.
Tied for number one meme: Zebra Thursdays. Because I had it all to myself.

Yeah I liked the lie thing.Maybe we should resurrect it or have 9 lies and one truth, or a politicians special with just lies and 10 brown envelopes and a jet plane outta here when it goes pear shaped and then write a shitty little book an get an artists exemption and formulate Machiavellian plans to be president.Or something.I haven't really thought about it.

You podcasted the Nib/D'Oub show yet?
I was watching TIPP cleaning up some unfinished business in Croker.

come over to my blog and collect your award for sarkyest blogger! the conditions are,
1: dance naked in the rain
2: create a lolcat image
3: tell everyone your preferred sexual deviance :-D

*thinks seriously about creating such a thing

Niamh B said...

Tks Summer, I can see how it would be a pain, I'm actually glad enough that most people I know in blogworld don't seem to be that into it!
Deal NanU - and yes the Zebra was bound to have a special place in your heart!
Yes TFE - we'll come up with another fun one like that perhaps - you start it. and to finish the phrase TOOOOEEEE through the tulips!!!
And yeah - talk about eagerly awaited, Oub's genius will be posted up tonight, after 10.00 ish
Thanks Watercats, plenty of rain out there, but too many opportunistic overlooking neighbours :( maybe when it's dark! that covers no. 3 too... *thinks seriously I might actually get a blog award here.

Kat Mortensen said...

Love the new look - so vibrant and fresh and cheery!

I have been known to indulge in memes (I've even created a couple), so I will post my 3, but I'll put them on "The Kathus" blog.


Niamh B said...

Thanks Kat, and cool beans, look forward to seeing that!
TFE - Triona's show is up now, enjoy!!!*

*caution you may actually explode with happiness between tipp and the hilarity etc....

Dominic Rivron said...

My favourite meme has remained conceptual - as I suggested people try it last month, but nobody took up my suggestion. It was an online knobbly knees competition: all participants had to do was post a photo of their knees.

Niamh B said...

I really can't imagine why that one didn't take off Dominic!

Peter Goulding said...

Well, I was going to send you an award with a stipend of €1,000 but fair enough...

Titus said...

Love the splotchiness!
No more awards! Just when I had two lined up for you!
Poems in shops! Poems in shops! I'm so excited. It's my number 1, as the Bus has left the meme stage way, way behind...
I liked that one on inspirations.

Niamh B said...

Phew Peter and Titus, so glad I stopped ye in time!!
Don't remember the inspiration one now? Maybe I didn't do it or did a particularly bad job of it

Kat Mortensen said...

Hi Niamh! I did the post on the memes for you (bet you didn't think I would). It's been a bit mad in my house lately, so I haven't been consistent at all with posting, reading or commenting. I can't say that's going to change for a while yet, but I did manage to pull this together. You can find it here:
