The Superior Scribbler Award Ceremony

.


The week before last I received an award for scribbling from Kate. I am proud to receive this because she is a proper writer and I, well I just scribble. I probably received this award for little daublings such as these: Nice 'n Easy, No More Awkward Moves and Dyson Does Dallas.
Anyhow, the rules of The Superior Scribbler Award state that I can now pass on this award to five fellow bloggers. I would have passed one on to Mrs P, but she has a preference for fitting tributes. And of course Gorilla Bananas deserves one, but he is a Gorilla... Many others who I thought of already have this award, such as Pat, Misssy and Mr Dotts. So my awards go to Daphne for Chocs Away, Old Girl! because she is always entertaining and inventive; Kevin Musgrove for Commonplaces because he always makes me laugh; Mr Coppens for Homo Escapeons because he loves playing with language; Lulu Labonne for Earwig sandwich because of her quirky style and Mr Gadj because he is lovely.

Right, I'm off to get sozzled then... and I'll try not to trip over my frock...

Gorilla Bananas said...

Congratulations, Miss Scarlet! I'd like to sit you down on my lap and tie a blue ribbon around your head.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Bananas: Thank-you! Have some champagne whilst you're here.. Mr Dave has flounced off in a huff, so all the more for us.

KAZ said...

And will your speech be like Kate, Gwynnie or Halle?

savannah said...

congratulations, sugarpie! xoxo *raising my first drink of the day to you!*

PI said...

Congrats Scarlet! It's one I'm proud of - which is lucky as I have manged to lose the rest. YOur many readers are testament to your scribbling and I, for one, find you a ray of sunshine.

xl said...

Do you suppose resolution of the bush situation was the deciding factor?

Congrats to a super scribbler!

MJ said...

Congrats to the winners!

Miss Scarlet, you have toilet tissue trailing from your shoe.

scarlet-blue said...

Kaz: Knowing me my speech will be a mumbling mess! I will probably go red and fall over.

Savannah: Cheers! Bottoms up!

Pat: Thank you Pat! I blush very easily you know...

Mr XL: Thank you! I now have a blushing bush... hang on bushes flush... don't they? Where is my resident gardener, Mr Dave..? He would know...

MJ: Thank you!
It's because of all the flushing that I have toilet issues.. and tissues stuck on my shoes..

BEAST said...

Oooooh congratulations :-)
A well deserved award

Homo Escapeons said...

You are a Peach!
A perfect, symmetrical, firm, fuzzy, warm Peach..mmmm...you even smell delicious, one little nibble and you're hooked, you can't stop, you need more, you cannot live another moment until...
ahem...thank you so much.

Although some attempt to dismiss my punny playfulness with the laughixon as a thinly veiled ploy to disguise an elementary fauxcabulary and whisper-thin sprinklings of follyglottery only confirm their hunch.

Thankfully you have made a conscious effort to see past all of my shortcomings and reward my asshattery.

You really are a Peach...
and anyone who questions your judgement can go f*** *********!

Homo Escapeons said...

HAHA! There is nothing quite like starting off the day with a jolt of Absinthe.

Not quite sure why they say it makes the heart grow fonder?

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: Why thank you, Mr Beastie!

Mr Coppens: Goodness me! I'm flushing even more!!
Enjoy your award!

Dave said...

'Where is my resident gardener, Mr Dave..?'

He's in the potting shed and he's not coming out.

Lulu LaBonne said...

Well congratulations to you - how lovely to have the honour passed on(funny that I thought it was everyone else who was quirky)

*blushes and bursts into tears*

Do we go out and get pissed on absinthe now?

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: Stop sulking and tell me about the flushing... I know what you're doing in the potting shed... I have cameras everywhere...

Lulu: I know, I have gone all silly... drink and be merry... let's float some leeches!

Sx

Kevin Musgrove said...

Coo-err!

Well done you!

And very many thanks. I'll have to try and find something funny now.

Enjoy your absinthe!

scarlet-blue said...

Kev: Fillums Kev... more fillums... I've had too many absinenthe and champagne cocktails... it's nearly time for a rousing chorus of 'My Way'...
Sx

Kevin Musgrove said...

Jelly and blancmange round our way.

I'm toying with a cartoon festival.

scarlet-blue said...

Kev: The Jelly and blancmange was very nice... but I think I over did it with the chocolate spread...

mutleythedog said...

I have far to many of these awards already...its best to let others
have a go... ahem...

Eryl Shields said...

Scribbling is the best, and you are one of the best scribblers I've ever known. Nice to see you acknowledged as you should be, XXX

Gadjo Dilo said...

Thanks, Scarlet. I've no idea what this means, of course, or what I have to do now to prove myself worthy. I'll just have to try to carry on being lovely I suppose.

CyberPete said...

Congrats!

I am still waiting for you know what..

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Oh! Gosh! *looking for camera* I can't believe it! *fumbling for prepared acceptance speech* You're too kind! I really didn't expect ....

* stumbles up to podium clutching ballgown*

*Adjusts microphone while applause dies down*

Ladies and gentlement of the Academy ... this is really SUCH a great honour. First of all, I'd like to thank my dear departed former husband Harold for dying and thereby giving me the time and space to develop my talent, Vi Hornblower for her support and encouragement during the dark days, Zed of My Boyfriend is a Twat for first bigging up my humble efforts in the blogosphere, Baron Heinrich von Fuchs-Langezeit zu Neanderthal aka Bert for being out of the office so much, and finally Blogger and the McChe Design Team for this lovely frock I'm wearing tonight. I love you all! Thank you! I don't deserve it! *breaks down in tears* Thank you so much! *blowing kisses to audience* You're really too, too kind! *dragged off by security guards* (off)

I'd also like to accept this award on behalf of all my alter egos, including Julian and Mrs Pouncer. Allegedly.

Thank you! Thank you! (In the style of Rita Webb)
*dragged off a second time by security guards*

Dave said...

*Sticks head out of potting shed, and mutters:*

There is a shrub Taxus x media 'Flushing' (common Name: Flushing Anglojap yew).

Hope this helps.

Jane P said...

Mr Dave is very funny. I expect you're saving up something special for him, aren't you, Miss Scarlet?

Ponita said...

Congrats, Scarlet! How cool is that!

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Mutts: Thank you Mr Mutts! Have you won the big Pork Pie Award yet?

Eryl: Thank you Eryl! You've got me blushing again!

Gadj: You carry on being lovely... flipping typical that you're now claiming to be an old git....

Daphne: Have you finished with my security guards yet???? One of them is looking quite dishevelled and has been telling me about how he's on the next plane for Brussels... I don't know, give her an inch and she takes a full column...

Dave: A Spring flush! As of shoots and leaves.
Men do this too.

Jane: Hello and Welcome! Yes I have something very special for Dave...

Ponita: Thank you! I am indeed quite chuffed because nobody has given me an award before. Not ever.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Sorry!
I'm on to it....

Eryl Shields said...

Here's another for you if you'd like it: the 'Kreativ Blogger' award. I'd forgotten that I was meant to pass it on but now that has been righted and I would so love to hear your take on love. X

Congratulations ScarletB,

This being the week of hearts, flowers and love, I wish you a splendid week with the words of James Ingram:

Compliment what she does
Send her roses just because
If it's violins she loves
Let them play
Dedicate her favourite song
And hold her closer all night long
Love her today
Find one hundred ways


All the best,

underOvr

scarlet-blue said...

Eryl: Goodness me! Another award! Thank-you, I will save it for Valentine's Day.
Crikey.... do you think I ought to pass it on to Mr 'flouncy' Dave?

Mr U: Hello and Welcome! I've blushed and flushed so much on this post... you are very kind.

Sx

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

And of course congrats to you on this much-deserved award, Scarlet. That wasn't an afterthought. Not at all. But I think that might be an early Valentine from Mr U !
