the elsie.


If you are a sensible person with even a hint of a sense of humor you've probably seen "30 Rock," the greatest television show of my time. If you watch this show regularly you know that Tracy Jordan's newest goal in life is to go after EGOT, which is winning an Emmy, Golden Globe, Oscar and a Tony. That, along with the announcement of Emmy nominations this morning has led me to the creation of the Elsie.

The Elsie was created to award those people in my life who are making it better. The people who are constantly striving to entertain me, inform me and shock me. The people who make me laugh, cry and shriek in terror.

Aside: The Elsie could be something awarded on a monthly or semi-monthly basis. All Elsie awards being awarded are from the time period April 2010-July 2010. All Elsie awards were voted on by me and are completely and totally subjective.

**The inaugural Elsie awards will be given out at a later date.**

I'm honored to have been nominated. Truly.

However, I'm also a little bit sad to have not been nominated for "Best Use of a Facebook Profile Picture".

But it's fine. I'll still take the crown for that which I have been nominated.

3 nominations?! wow. what can i say?
i'd like to thank the elsie academy, my mom, and my 1st grade teacher who always encouraged me to use social media as an outlet for humor. i'd also like to wish my competitors...i mean, fellow nominees, good luck. you're going to need it, bitches.

I don't know whether to be horribly offended or flattered that I'm up against Priscilla Jane-Angie. And, I think this definitely does mean I need to lay off the FB for a while. WOW!

I have to say, I too am a little disappointed that I wasn't nominated for "Best Use of a Facebook Profile Picture." I mean, I've had so many great ones... :( And such variety, too.

Yes! i would like to thank bmayes for taking the picture and i would like to thank bruno for being such a patriot..and i don't want to, but i think i will thank the chinese for making the dollar-store American flag that probably had 57 stars because obama once claimed to have visited all 57 states...
