A Manly Award and Stuff


Simon at Constant Revisions gave me the Witty Banter & a Beer Award! Simon says this is in response to all the pretty, flowery, girly awards.

Now, I’m not here to promote heavy drinking, but hey, it’s nice to get an award that’s geared toward us men. There’s so few of us out here!

I am passing it on to some other manly men:

Jamie at Mithril Wisdom
Arlee at Tossing it Out
Mr. Stupid at Stupidation
Cheeseboy at The Blog O Cheese
Stephen at Breakthrough Blogs
Will at Fatherhood and Other Common Terrors
Marvin at The Old Silly’s Free Spirit Blog
Matthew at The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment

Don't forget to check out the three great giveways in my sidebar!


Those of you who read my interview with author David J. Williams last week – his book, The Machinery of Light, came out yesterday! Visit Autumn Rain for details.




And if you've noticed The Dirty Dozen button in my sidebar – stay tuned! I will be announcing this blogfest next Tuesday.

congrats on the award, I'm sure you enjoyed that beer :)

Matthew Rush said...

It is nice to know that male bloggers DO EXIST. Don't get me wrong I love all the women, and they are very supportive and helpful, but sometimes it gets a little lonely!

KarenG said...

So nice to see a manly award!

Tara said...

Yea for a manly award! I always think of the guys when I get my awards, but I'm pretty sure you all don't really wants flowers and pink cupcakes all over the place ;)

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

LOL great award! I want one! I can be a bloke ;) you can just pretend, can't you?

Glynis said...

Love the award, far better than the flowery ones...not that I would turn one down. LOL

Congratulations to yourself and those you have awarded.

arlee bird said...

Hey-- thanks for the award. As soon as I finish washing the dishes, making the bed, and doing a few other household chores I'll try to figure out who else to pass this to. Gosh, what other male bloggers are left?

Look forward to the "Dirty Dozen" announcement next Tuesday. Who will be able to resist this one?

Matthew! Didn't mean to leave you out - I just included you in the list.

Tara, no flowers or pink, but cupcakes are welcome.

Allomorph, if you are a bloke at heart, yes!

Arlee, that sounded strangely domestic...

Thanks everyone!

You guys ARE in the minority in this blogosphere, and some of those awards ARE awfully flowery... though I'd never turn down a beer, provided it is locally brewed and I can't see through it... okay... I'll stop being a beer snob now...

(followed a few of those links--look like great blogs!)

Will Burke said...

Well, it's about time! I haven't deliberately turned down a flowery award, but it sure is nice to get something a little more manly! Thank you, and Cheers!

Carol Kilgore said...

Congrats on your banter and beer award. Sounds like a good combination to me :)

Talli Roland said...

Haha! What a great award. Enjoy the beer!

Kate said...

Hey - a manly award - but what about all us beer swilling gals? :-)

Caledonia Lass said...

That's funny! I was thinking of making an award myself and making sure it looked "cool" enough for you guys out there. ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hart, you like the strong ales, don't you?

You're welcome, Will!

Kate, this was passed to me as a manly thing, so I just followed suit. But don't see why the ladies can't enjoy it as well.

Mel, I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say thanks!

Liza said...

Congratulations on your award.

Jemi Fraser said...

I bet all you guys are so relieved to see a manly award for a change :) Congrats!

Stephen Tremp said...

This is so cool. Move over NBA MVP trophy. The manly man Banter & Beer Award is taking center stage on my fireplace mantle. Thanks Alex. I humbly accept.

I'd like to thank the usual cast: Barky the Dog, that strange man in a trench coat who stands on the street corner yelling at passing cars, and Al Gore. Without you all I would neot be here today.

Stephen Tremp

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephen, that's great! I couldn't write a better acceptance speech myself.

Cheeseboy said...

NICE Finally an award made for man bloggers! I could not be any more appreciative!

Now, if only I had enough man bloggers that are also readers that I could pass this on to.

Thanks Alex!

Sugar said...

Yay beer! Congrats man!!

Mr. Stupid said...

Wow. An award for men? Great! Thanks for sharing the award. Now, I need to search for other man bloggers.
Cheeseboy was on my list, but he's already got the award!

Smiles:)

Manly Marvin said...

Dude - thanks for the MAN's award! And congrats to your own mega-masculine self! (wink)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You are welcome Cheeseboy, Mr Stupid, and Marvin. Sorry if I cornered all the male bloggers out there.

Carol Fleisher said...

Congrats on your award. The movie dirty dozen sounds interesting. :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

There you go! That award seems manly.
And want to know more about the Movie Dirty Dozen!

Jamie Gibbs said...

Whoo! Thanks for the award :D Tis an honour to receive an award so manly, I think the only thing that could be manlier would be the Chuck Norris award, hehe. And I too am intrigued by the movie dirty dozen...

Jayne said...

Hello Alex! Oh I love the 'witty banter and beer' award! You are right, most of the awards I see around blogging world are lovely but a bit fluffy, come to think of it. The Movie Dirty Dozen sounds interesting! Am staying tuned... :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I'll fill everyone in on The Movie Dirty Dozen on Tusday!

BStearns said...

Congrats on your award! Now, does the beer award actually come with a beer? If it did, I believe that would successfully make it the best award ever. EVER!

I went to the Autumn Rain website via your link. Wow! That is a way cool website for a book. I have a pretty deep pile of books in my TBR stack, but I might add the first book in the trilogy in a few weeks.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Bryan, that would make it the best damn award ever!

Mary, did you see my interview with him last week? They are excellent books.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Congrats on your very manly award ;)

And a Dirty Dozen blogfest? Ohhh, sounds very manly, too!!

Palindrome said...

Simon C. Larter said...

Excellent, good sir! I'm glad to see the award passed on to some other fellas in the blogosphere. Represent! (I'm so white it's not funny. I shouldn't say things like "Represent!")

Congrats on your other awards too!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The Dirty Dozen announcement coming on Tuesday!

Thank you SO muc Beth!

Simon, I'm a bit on th pale side myself...

Geof said...

Banter and Beer should be the name of my blog since beer is my writing companion. Just kidding...or am I?

Congrats on your award.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Geof, only you know for sure!

Ellie said...

Congrats on the award; I love it!

You deserve it! Cheers~
