Jill: *Shriek* Friday shout-outs!!

Lill: Yep! We did a few laps, checked some references, took several bribes, and can now present nominations in turn for the awards we’ve recently received.

Jill: Once again we would like to extend our humble thanks to the Raving Mad Scientists for the Versatile Blogger Award; Cakes McCain and her Pasta For One for the T.M.I. Blog Award and Creative Chaos Award; the Happy Runner for the Kreativ Blogger Award, and; the wonderful weirdo responsible for I’m Not Lost, Just Weird for the Very Inspirational Blogger Award and our second Kreativ Blogger Award. *Blush* Gee, we’ve been spoiled.

Lill: Indeed, and cheers! Without you we would not have drank like heathens eaten so much cake this month – thank you for being all kinds of awesome.

Jill: Like you ever needed an excuse to eat more cake.

Lill: This is true, and p.s., I ate your last slice yesterday.

Jill: *Sigh* Moving along – As we took so much care in our selection process and because we have a few awards to pass along, for simplicity’s sake we’re awarding one outstanding blog and blogger for each (it’s Thursday night people and we have to catch up on last week’s Grey’s Anatomy – yes we still watch this show and so do you so stop judging). Also, we’re not including the rules here so do check out the linked awards or pages of those who nominated us for details.

Lill: *Raises eyebrows* Nice try with the ‘we’ – I stopped watching when the original cast ran out of new characters to sleep with, Season 6 I think…Anyways, for the Versatile Blogger Award we hereby shout-out Lombodotcombo – a recent grad making her way in the post-college world of wonders/horrors. This Lovely shares posts that are both honest and charming – I’ve already sworn to bake her a cake and suggest you do the same.

Jill: Seeing as Lillian’s baking can at best procure a burnt flour brick with five pounds of frosting, it’s a good thing her offering is a virtual one…Next, the T.M.I. Blog Award goes to the Single Girl’s Survival Guide.

Lill: It’s Girl Power and Hos Before Bros captured in gossip, support, advice and discussion that boldly goes where few do concerning the life of the lady singleton.

Jill: We’re delivering the Creative Chaos award to Anne Alias and her blog Mark It Research. Anne works in a call-centre and documents her experiences calling and surveying peeps at random – how could this NOT be hilarious?

Lill: Working in the nine circles of hell a call-centre?! Maybe she should take the Very Inspirational Blogger Award instead…

Jill: That award we’ve saved for the Happy Runner – not only to recognize her blog but to also pass along some extra awesome in prep for this weekend’s 10k race.

Lill: Good luck and think of poutine!!

Jill: Next, we want to nominate Fela2Fela for our first Kreativ Blogger Award – Fela captures her dreams with a lyrical writing style that makes us feel like Alice in her Wonderland.

Lill: Yeah, I always expect the Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar to show up…

Jill: Yes, but you also expect to see him at the post office, dry cleaners and sushi place around the corner…For our second Kreativ Blogger nod and last shout-out, we nominate One Girl Geek.

Lill: Her random nerdy ramblings are insightful, informative and a must for the modern Geekess (we particularly enjoy Whosdays).

Jill: Whew! What a fabulous way to start the weekend!

Lill: It’s still technically Thursday night…

Jill: Yes and we haven’t even opened the wine yet!

Lill: Wait, you were saving that?


About Lill and Jill

We are Lillian and Jillian; best friends and roommates. We blog to capture the seemingly trivial moments of thought and expression that make us smile; the often-times ridiculous way we see the world and how we live in it. We ask that you think well of us despite our propensity for drinking saccharine-laden alcoholic beverages, affection for 90′s boy-bands, and regular inappropriateness.

    My goodness! I was so unsure about starting a blog (2 failed attempts and a nasty comment from an unknown user can really mess with your inner zen), but thank you times a million for being brilliant, for reading, commenting, and being all kinds of fabulous! 🙂 So much appreciation for both the nomination and the virtual cake baking. You have given me the gusto to keep on truckin’. High fives for all!

    And also, congrats on your own nominations!! You two truly have a very amazing blog and senses of humor.

    Thanks for including my blog in your shoutouts! I’m glad you enjoy Whosdays. They’re my favorite, too. I’ll have check out all these blogs and then look up this award so I can follow the rules.

    Spoiled? YOU TWO? NNnoooooooooooooo!!!!!

    May I have my pants back now? And NO you can’t put your Peanut Buttered Waffles in the pockets!!!!

    • No worries about the pockets – I needed the waffles for shark bait – and the pants left this morning via caribou – they’ll arrive next week, any sooner and it would have cost us 100 pieces of 8 😀 …L

      • Nowan Zen says:

        I’m returning to you all of the left boots I snuck out whilst you slept. I hope it was okay that I used them to distill some interesting additions to the “Oh My Word It’s Alcohol” family of fuels and imbiberies.

        100 pieces of 8 sounds like you live way out past where the trees grow. We’ve switched currencies to Chocolate and Coffee (much easier to obtain, not so easy to keep).

      • Excellent! Jill will be pleased as she’s been forced to walk in clockwise circles since your thievery took place.
        RE: Oh My Word It’s Alcohol – we suggest you add a pinch of nutmeg (it makes everything taste like pie).
        Chocolate and coffee you say? We may as well file for chapter 11 now…L

      • Nowan Zen says:

        Then I’m keeping the socks and sweatshirts with the caterpillar fuzz and smoky smell. Whose pudding mix is this? Why is it in the Kool Aid container?


        And who glued all these pennies to my feet? *starts tapdancing* Who knew?

      • Ahhh, I didn’t bring enough soap for this!…L

      • Nowan Zen says:

        Mental Floss…..it works miracles!

    Oh my goodness gracious… I don’t know what to say. I guess I’ll have to go ahead and post the hooka smoking caterpillar dream! Also, to think the writers of the one blog that makes me literally lol, would give me a shot out, it’s prodigious, I’m floored.

    • We’ve never been thanked so eloquently before – well there was that old German man on the elevator last week but he may have been talking about his shoes.
      The honour was ours really – you make words dance 🙂 …L

  5. Happy Runner says:

    Thanks so much for the shout-out and the award! You guys are awesome and make me LOL every day (note to self: don’t put food in mouth while reading L&J’s blog… not good for table and floor…). I’ll drink a Molson Dry after the race in your honor! 😉 Thanks again!

    • Your welcome and congrats 🙂
      The food from mouth to table/floor thing happens in our house on a regular basis – and you’ll deserve something better than a Molson after your race (I suggest chocolate milk or vodka) …L

  6. Thanks, ladies. Like we didn’t have enough distractions…now we have to add 6 new blogs to the ever-lengthening list!

    Oh, internet, you are both a gift and a curse.

    🙂 Nikki

  7. […] want to shout a Thank You to Lill & Jill who passed on the Very Inspirational Blogger Award to me. Thank you […]

    Ha this is one of the best award acceptance speeches I’ve seen (to be fair I’ve not seen that many). Thanks for the nomination again though. Tis much appreciated.
