The Awkwardness of the Unicorn Chicken Award

Hey! Look over there, a shiny thing!

Still here?

Remember, a while back when I got a couple of blogger awards and I was all awkward about it and stuff?

Well, it has happened again and guess what? I'm still awkward. Yay me.

Vanessa over at 5 Things About Nothing Important has bestowed kind words and and the Liebster Award upon me and since she has admitted that she too is an awkward person, I don't feel bad about not following the rules.

At 5 Things About Nothing Important you can learn things like how ticks have sex, why men have it easier at special occasions, and how fun it is to share a bathroom with boys. Check her out. She's funny, real, and sometimes you learn stuff in just 5 things.

Robyn over at Hollow Tree Ventures got the Liebster Award from Vanessa too and because she thinks I'm scared of her Baby (I am) she passed the award to me and that's how I ended up with two awards.

If you read the comments on this blog, you know that Robyn is funny. She is also good at math, drawing killer stairs of death, and party planning. Every post is funny and sometimes there are charts, but even better than that, I get to share in the joy and triumphs of having kids, without having to actually touch any. Win. Win.

I'm still a rebel and not following the rules but I feel like a wanker by not passing on some love to another blogger who deserves it so I am bestowing the illustrious Unicorn Chicken Award to Point Counter-Point Point Point.

I just made that up and it's kind of cheating because it was Robyn's idea and she also gave them an award but that doesn't mean I mean it any less.

Confused? Me too.

Here are just a few examples of why PCPPP deserves a Unicorn Chicken:

Have you ever wondered how many Japanese words there are for poop and what that has to do with golf? Find out!

Ever had a bad job interview? Not this bad.

Did you know that sometimes squirrels try to kill themselves?

Christian is a regular commenter here and half of the team over at PCPPP and I have two things to say to him:

1. Thanks for always making me laugh here.

2. Do you ever get tired of figuring out how many P's go into to PCPPP? It's giving me a headache.


I really super appreciate the people who read this drivel and I double-dog super appreciate the people who take the time to comment and I infinity appreciate it if you say nice things about me. Just don't do it too often or I will get a big head.



  1. Congrats to you & Christian. You two are well deserving of awards.

  2. I was hoping for the Unicorn Chicken Award to be those thong panties. Now what would be really cool is if this award started going around in a gigantic bloggy circle. Hopefully, it won't come back home to you though, since awards make you squirmy.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    1. You are most welcome. I had fun researching all your old posts to find the links to put in here.

      The underpants would make a nice award. Nothing says "job well done" like birds on your crotch!

  3. Wow thanks so much! I have so many things to say I don't know where to begin... First off I would like to thank God for smiting all the others that were in contention, allowing us to win. Kudos God! Secondly, I would like to thank the Academy. The Academy of Magical Arts, which has done it's best to support and promote magicians from all over the world.

    Seriously though I can't think of a more exciting award to win than the inaugural (it is the first one right?) Unicorn Chicken Award. This must have been what it was like when Arthur Ash won the Arthur Ash award.

    And as for your numerated items:
    1) I'm just returning the favor.
    2) It was difficult at first but eventually it became second nature. Just remember the drug PCP and then imagine a small child that has to pee saying I have to go "pee pee". See it's simple.

    Thanks again so much! We'll formulate a more formal acceptance post over at PCPPP as soon as the cash prizes arrive in the mail.

    1. It is, indeed, the very first Unicorn Chicken Award ever.

      Guinness will be calling you soon, no doubt, to include in their book and probably buy you a beer. Unless it's Alec Guinness, which would be way cooler because he could teach you Jedi mind tricks and stuff and that dark beer is kind of nasty anyway.

      Your cash prize will be paper-clipped to a Safeway flyer. Be on the lookout!!

  4. A) Thank you for all the kind words.
    2) The Unicorn Chicken? Best. Award. Ever.
    W) You are not a wanker, as evidenced by the fact that you use words like wanker. There are other reasons too, but that's the main one, I think.
    iv) I forget what this point was going to be because my dumb iPhone kept changing iv to I've until I forgot what I was going to say

    1. You're welcome. It's all true.
      It kind of is.
      I really can be sometimes.
      iPhones are fancy.
      I will do as she says. *deeply bows*

  5. You are a Wanker but also a good writer!

    1. I can always can't on you to keep my head from getting too big. =)

    2. Or count. Because can't never could.

  6. *sigh* sooooo awkward! Now what am I supposed to do? Leave you hate mail? No, I think I'll leave the dirty work for the other bloggers and I will happily spend my time enjoying your posts and saying what I think - which means you might get a big head unless the other bloggers do their thing. Congratulations on the award - and love the new Unicorn-Chicken one!

    1. Thanks Lady! I guess I shouldn't complain too much, since I would feel even more awkward to get a "You Suck" Award.

      Also the more I type the word awkward the more awkward it looks. Why are there so many w's in there??

  7. Congratulations on your many awards and for making up an award. I bet you're really ripping through your bucket list.

    1. Thanks Carrie! I'm afraid to make a for real bucket list because:

      A: I'm the type of person who has to cross the thing off the list I have made, by doing it,
      B: I'm also the type to *say* I want to do things like walk off a mountain-side and hanglide but I'm not sure I really want to do it.

  8. hey aren't i EVER going to catch up with my reading? no way can i ever take a few weeks off...
    congrats on your awards...you deserve each and every one!! for sure!

    i don't do awards...only cause it always reminded me of kids waiting to picked for a team in gym class. hmmm, weird, i know. who ever does a blog...deserves an award just for doing it! but hey, if i DID DO awards...the chicken unicorn one sounds about right!

    1. Don't you know that a few weeks away from the computer is like dog years in internet time?!

      I hearby bestow the Unicorn Chicken Award upon you to congratulate you for catching up and surviving May!! All you have to do to accept it is think a nice thought about the elusive Unicorn Chicken.


Do what?
