    first off, i think you should do the pakistani interview… doesn’t sound fishy at all. pakistani is known for their renowned articles on technology. :-)

    second, thanks for the award! although i don’t know if i should be flattered or appalled that i am an “oldie”. i’ll take your word for it. :-)

  5. Kristin says:

    Oh my goodness. Well, first and foremost I would like to thank God. You’re my boy, God. I would also like to thank my family, because without them, I would be without good material. Finally, I would like to thank the fans. Without you guys…I’m nothing.

    I am so honored! Thanks for the funniest blog award. That totally made my 2008. It’s truly what I strive for. Your blog, is hysterical my friend. You always make me laugh out loud, or as the tweenies say, lol.

  6. Austin W. says:

    (Sniffle sniffle tear) I just want to thank first and foremost the Plastic Cupcake Awards for giving me this award. Next, I want to thank my family, friends, co-workers, students, and all of those who have supported me and my blog these past few months. Finally, I want to thank God….because without Him, this blog never would have happened.

    Thank you!

    i can’t believe the academy didn’t recognize the unicorn trot. i should have campaigned harder…taken out a full page ad in the chronicle or something. man!
