vuvuzela awards

OK, so, like I won a blog award! Crickey, I'm pleased! Tertia and Steve Hofmeyr were hot favourites – both pulling in two awards each.
It’s gratifying to know there are some people out there that believe I am a frigging comedian – and I am honoured with winning Most Humourous Blog of 2006.
I’m delighted to see I came a runner up in my other categories as well, which induces uncontrollable chuffedness.
Even with a whole lot of personal shit going on, if people think I'm funny, my work here is done.
Anyhoo.

Thanks to everyone and anyone who voted for me in all my categories, and congratulations to everyone who scooped a vuvuzela trophy.
My ears are shot.
Well done Joblog and Jon Cherry for putting it together – you’re all hot geeks with great hair.

The night was decidedly festive. Our trophies were vuvuzelas – I obviously ended up funneling tequila through mine. Playing foozball with the boys, and not really knowing what the dickens was going on around me. Being surrounded by some of the hottest geeks the blogosphere has to offer, tanked on tequila - I get a little flaky.
Thanks for siphoning tequila into me.

(FYI, I woke up the next day, arms entangled around my vuvuzela next to me in my bed. Worrying.)
My co-partner Crusoe was being smothered by some blond siren, and I’m certain I offered to show my noombies to Don. Luckily I was wearing my pretty yellow bra, not the skanky one.

I met some awesome people, and someone asked me for my autograph. This was met with unladylike gaffawing.
Me: “I’m sorry, you want what?”
Him: “Your autograph. You’re Peas right?”
Me: “You’re killing me, funny guy!...No seriously, you’re joking, right?”
Him: “Just sign my business card.”

What do I write? “Thanks for being a fan, Peas?” Or, “I’d better be funny from now on because this award holds a certain amount of pressure and in some respects I think Splattermail should’ve got this. Love, Peas?”
Or, “Here’s my number, you look like an interesting geek, love Peas?”
“All this and a bag of chips, Peas?”
Instead I did the honourable thing and drew a lovely picture of a whole lot of roundish balls on a rectangle thingie posing as a piece of toast.

In other news, I’ve rearranged the furniture of my entire flat. Pulled a neck muscle.
My bedroom has been turned into a boudoir of calm, tranquility and smut.
A corner of our living room, my office. With power bitch motivational stick-ons all over the place reminding me that I plan to be a millionaire in the next two years. Which on that, I start my new enterprise tomorrow.

Luckily I have a spanking new pair of red, shiny high heels to kick start my first day.

Peas, there's something else you forgot. Remember - you found out that you are the same age as Mike Stopforth :)

acidicice said...

Congratulations again! I keep hearing rumours of pictures and videos...but I'll be damned if I can find any! This is the internet for goodness sake! Isn't stuff supposed to spread like wildfire?!

Boomkind said...

Hi Peas, Well done.
I think the most humerous award tells you that people think the way you write and put across your personal experiences are funny but in no way think that they in themselves are funny. For some reason I had to say that. You keep on Rocking girl.

Boomkind said...

And a very good luck for you today may your business grow and grow so soon you can sell it for millions and go to Russia to lear to be a spaceman like MarK. Then you can be "Peas in Space"!

acidicice said...

Oh yes and also for your business venture: Break a heel! (You know of course I don't mean that literally!)

Billy said...

Well done kid.

Don said...

Hot geeks with great hair, yeah, I'll take that! ;)

Oh, and for the record, the funneled tequila was supposed to get you to show the world your noombies. Although you could've done it after we left.

To all the guys, if she did, post pictures please. Ta.

ChewTheCud said...

wtf? Word verification? This is gonna make those long fridays of mass posting on your blog harder babe ;)

I see you decided to keep the humourous spelling too. Well done on the vuvuzela and all. Even if you can't blow ;P

Don said...

PS. acidicice: Video here, pics here, for now.

Kevin Cadman said...

Haaai! Congrats neh! It's cool that Tertia won; I have no idea about Steve Hofmeyr because I don't understand clutchplate.

But regardless, congrats 'n stuff!

Pete said...

Oh, I've got a good one! How about:

"please pretend you didn't see me smacking my [insert f word] when muddle was telling yet another one of her sex stories, peas"

I forgot to say that if you are looking for a PA - I'm in the market for a career change ;) I can dust as well and do windows if need be.

syllable said...

I was going to flash too; was wearing my First Date T-shirt and all.
Wayne looked at me funny though...

Revolving Credit said...

Shit, sounds like I missed a good one. I really need to try and synch my Jozi trips a bit better.

Peas, at least you got to wake up with a bit horn clutched firmly in your arms and between your thighs.

acidicice said...

Thank you, don! You're the shit!

Reluctant Nomad said...

Congrats on the award. Definitely well-deserved.

Peas on Toast said...

Boldly - thanks sweetie :)

Johnny Q - thanks babe, I know I have been less than sprightly of late :(

redsaid said...

Muchas congratulations! I've tried hating you for being thin AND clever AND funny AND witty AND pretty, but you make it very difficult. http://www.redsaid.net/archives/000367.php

Martin said...

...boudoir of calm, tranquility and smut...

Heh, great combination.

Peas on Toast said...

Redsaid - I just proposed to you on your site. That's how much I love you right now :)

Martin - yeah...the perfect bedroom for the single girl, eh? ;)

Martin said...

I'd say.

*Sigh*, I continue to be smitten with smut-appreciating girls.

Peas on Toast said...

Martin - that's certainly not a bad place to start m'dear :)

SwissTwist said...
