I ownz it!

I ownz it!  I ownz it!!  I OWNZ IT!!!  Pardon the kitty speak but I was just so excited that I accidentally reverted to my native tongue.  Since I'm a kitty, kitty speak was my first language.

Now I bet you're all on pins and needles, wondering just what it is that I own.  First of all, might I suggest that you get off those pins and needles?  That has gotta hurt and I don't want anyone getting hurt over this.  This post is supposed to be fun.  Fun with capital letters kind of FUN.

Okay, down to business...  This month is my one year blogoversary.  That's right!  It was way back in November of 2011 when I started my blogging career and and it's been a wonderful, fantastical ride ever since.  Sometimes it feels like I just started bloggin' yesterday and at other times, I can't remember not blogging.  Guess I'm just a bloggin' cat, huh?  Blogging is in my blood now.  Hmmm...  I wonder if the doctor snuck in a blogging gene with my vaccinations last time I was in for a check-up...

To celebrate my blogoversary, the ol' peep has given me something very special indeed.  It was all Katie and GLOGIRLY's idea and I'm ever so pleased they mentioned it to the peep and me 'cause it's one of the best gifts ever.  Well, other than nip, of course.  But it's almost as good as nip and you all know how I feel about the nip, right?  I kind of have an addiction to the stuff.  So anything that's almost as good as the nip is pretty mousin' good.

I, Nerissa the cat, am now the proud owner of my very own domain.  Ever neat, huh?  I ownz a piece of the Internet.  I own my own name.  I own my very own domain. 

It took the peep a bit of doing.  There were a few technical problems setting it up.  And you all know my peep with technology, right?  It's like oil and water, my friends.  It's like she thought she was makin' salad dressing or something.  At first, stuff didn't work quite the way it was expected to work but the peep made a few calls and before I knew it - and before the peep had yanked all her hair out with frustration - everything was in place.  Everything was set up for my new domain name.

My old URL was hard to remember with all those letters and dashes and stuff.  Now, you just need to remember the name of my blog...  Nerissa's Life.  That's 'cause I now own the domain www.NerissasLife.com and I'm ever so proud of it.  It's like owning a piece of real estate.  A piece of prime real estate.  And you know what they say...  my peep is a technologically impaired duffer.  Oh, sorry 'bout that.  That's somethin' else they say.  Location, location, location!  That's the saying that applies here.  And the location is...  Nerissa's Life!  Yoo-Hoo!  YOO-HOO!!

That was a super-duper extra special gift my ol' peep gave me.  Don't you think?

But the celebrating isn't finished, my friends.  I have a special treat for all of you.  I've got a new award to hand out. 

I asked myself, "Hmmm....  now what do I love more than anything else in the world?"  Well the answer was pretty easy.  NIP!  So in honour of my first blogoversary, I'm introducing the new Bring on the Nip! award.  It's an award for celebrations.  Pretty neat, huh?

As usual, there's stuff you need to do in accepting this award but none of it is difficult.  Firstly, you need to thank the cat who gave you this award and link back to their blog.  Now, I don't have to do this 'cause...  well...  I'm startin' this shindig. 

Secondly, you have to tell everyone something you wanna celebrate.  Something good that happened.  That sort of thing.  It could be anything, really.  It could even be that you had extra yummy noms for breakfast or something.  In my case, I'm celebrating my first blogoversary.

And lastly, you need to pass the blog along.  You can pass it along to just one blog or as many as twelve.  I chose twelve 'cause there are twelve months in the year and, as you might have heard, I'm celebratin' my one year blogoversary.  Yup.  I've been blogging for twelve months now.  Did I mention that?  I can still can hardly believe it.

Now...  the first ever recipents of the Bring on the Nip! award.  Drum roll please...

Besides, it doesn't have our names, drat that mom. It has the matriarch of our kitty family name, and she is OTRB waiting for us all.

    Fanks you for the awardie. I have a lot to celebrate.
