Golden Globes... who needs 'em?

I waited...  and I waited...  AND I WAITED!  Nope.  Nada.  Nuttin'.  Not a single invite arrived in the mail for me to attend the Golden Globes.  I couldn't understand it.  Aren't ceremonies such as the Golden Globes events for celebrities to celebrate their celebrity?  I'm a kind of celebrity.  Aren't I?  Still don't understand why I wasn't invited.  MOUSES!  We'll just wait and see what that Oscar fellow brings...

After I was so rudely ignored by the powers-that-be at the Golden Globes, I felt a little down.  I must admit, I did.  But then the most wonderful thing happened.  The most wonderful thing in the whole wide entire world.  Bling started arriving in my in-box.  There was bling here and bling there and bling just about everywhere and I knew, once again, that I was loved.  I'm a celebrity after all!  And if those peeps at the Golden Globes didn't realize it before they sure must know by now 'cause I've been given the vote of confidence by my wonderful bloggin' friends in the blogosphere.  Golden Globes...  who needs 'em?  I've got the blogosphere! 

First came the Shine on Award from Angel at Angelswhisper.  Isn't that a nice name for a blog?  It's a nice blog, too.  I really like it.  If you haven't been to visit, please do.  Just click on the blog name to travel through space and time, right to where you need to be.  There are no requirements in accepting this beautiful award but I'm gonna pass it along to some bloggers whose spirits shine right through the sometimes hazy atmosphere of the blogosphere and straight into my heart.

And the nominees are... 
- Herman at It's a Wonderpurr Life
- Sammy at onespoiledcat
- Katie at Katie Isabella
- Speedy at Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny
- Savannah at Savannah's Paw Tracks
- Molly at Molly the Wally
- Mario at Mario's Meowsings
- Nike at NikePurrfectCat's World
- Pepper at Pepper's Paws

Next came the Liebster Award from my pal Speedy over at Speed the Cheeky House Bunny.  Now, I've actually received a similar award before - well, it had the same name - but both the requirements and graphics were different so I'm thinkin' that this is the second generation of this fantastic award, or somethin' like that.  Speedy has been known to travel through both space and time on his blog so it's quite possible that this is a second generation, of sorts, just like what some of those peeps manning the Starship Enterprise are.

In accepting this award, I have to say five things about myself.  Hmmm...  well, I'm a sterling silver tabby cat...  some might say platinum.  I'm a MANcat even if that ol' peep of mine did give me a girls' name.  MOUSES!  I was feral...  born in the neighbours' woodpile.  I had three litter mates but I was the first to befriend the peep and come into the house.  Then I helped her get my brother and two sisters in, too.  I'm addicted to the nip.  There...  that's five.

Now I must answer the following five questions...
1.  What is your favourite thing to do?
     Indulge in the nip! 
2.  What is your favourite time of year?
     I love the fall 'cause there are leaves to chase and acorns to bat around on the driveway.  Such
3.  What's the most important thing you want to do?
     I want at least one astronaut to read my blog from up on the space station.  Hear that Houston?
4.  Who is your favourite person or animal pal?
     My peep #1. Just don't tell her, okay?  It'll go straight to her head.
5.  Where in the whole wide world would you like to go?
     Well obviously...  NASA.  I'm pretty sure that if the peeps running NASA met me, they'd make
     sure some of those ol' astronauts up in the space station would read my blog.  I'm just sure of it!

Now, to pass along this award to five more blogs...
- Spitty at Spitty Speaks
- Mr Black at The Kittini Boys
- Sparkle at Sparkle the Designer Cat
- Derby & Ducky at DERBY and DUCKY
- Jacobi at The Dog Who Doesn't Fetch

I was still ridin' high on receiving the second award when my good friend Cocco over at My Mini Pet Pig honoured me with a third one.  Yes...  Cocco gave me the wonderful Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.  Now, as a mancat, I'm not a sister but since I have sisters, I figure it's okay for me to accept this.  Sisterhood is a figure of speech, I think.

For this award I need to thank the blogger who gave it to me and link back to their blog.  Thank you Cocco!  Love it!!!  Just click on the blog name above to visit Cocco's wonderful blog.

And there are ten questions to be answered.
  1.  What is your favourite colour?
       Silver....  as in sterling silver tabby like me.  hehehe...
  2.  What is your favourite animal?
       Is this a trick question?  CATS!
  3.  Your favourite non-alcoholic drink?
       Hmmm...  easy.  CREAM
  4.  Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?
       I'm takin' the fifth.
  5.  Your favourite pattern?
       Spots and stripes...  like my sterling silver tabby coat.
  6.  Do you prefer giving or getting presents?
       I love gettin' nip-filled prezzies at Christmas and all but really and truly, I like giving 'em best.
       And I've found that the best prezzie to give my peeps is spending time with them and allowing
       them access to my tummy for rubs and my chin and ears for scritches.  Peeps just love that.
  7.  Your favourite number?
       Hmmm....  I think I'll go with one.  I do love my peep #1 and I love havin' one-on-one time with
       her.  You get the best tummy rubs when there's no competition.
  8.  Your favourite day of the week?
       I have two.  Sundays and Wednesdays 'cause that's when I publish my blog posts and I get to
       spend time visitin' all my pals on the blogosphere.
  9.  Your favourite flower?
       I love pansies.  They're pretty...  and tasty, too.
10.  What is your passion?
       Blogging.  Oh...  and nip.  And I do love the peeps.  And I enjoy napping.  LIVING!

Finally, I need to nominate ten to twelve blogs I "find a joy to read," link up to them and, of course, let them know that they were nominated.  And the nominees are...
- Basil at Basil the Bionic Cat's Blog
- Laila & Minchie at Cat-a-Holic with Laila and Minchie
- the whole gang at Prancer Pie
- Trixie at Purr-sonally Speaking
- Tom at Whisker Messages from a Church Cat
- Anita at Castles, Crowns and Cottages
- Betty at Betty the Wood Fairy
- TexWisGirl at The Run *A* Round Ranch Report
- Stella & Rory at Stella and Rory from Down Under
- the Chihuahuas at Dip-Dip and The Bridge

And as if I wasn't already walkin' on air, out of the blue, I was awarded the REALITY Award not once but twice in one day!  I was flabbergasted for sure.  Boise and Bama from Shat Cast honoured me with the award and then Gracie and Benjamin Bunny from Feline Funnies did the very same thing.  Wow-oh-wow was I ever surprised.

In acceptin' this award, I need to visit the blogger(s) who gave it to me and thank 'em.  Thank you Boise!   Thank you Bama!  Thank you Gracie!  Thank you Bunny!   Thank you all 'cause I love it so very, very much.  I also need to link back to the blog(s) so that all of you can visit them, too.  Just click on the blog names to visit these wonderful bloggers.

Then there are five questions to answer.
1.  If you could change one thing, what would you change?
     I would make all the shelters in the world no-kill shelters.  Every single one of them.
2.  If you could repeat an age, what would it be?
     Hmmm...  four months.  That was 'bout the age I was when I trusted the peeps enough to come
     into the house but I was still a baby and got to cuddle lots with my mama and siblings.
3.  What is one thing that really scares you?
     Well, I could say my peep #1, first thing in the mornin' before she combs her hair and whatnot
     but...  I think I'll go with thunder storms.  The loud ones are super-duper scary.  Sometimes I
     hide under a bed.
4.  What is one dream you have not completed and do you think you will be able to complete it?
     I really, really, really want some astronauts up on the space station to read my blog...  from the
     space station.  I think it's possible.  Just need a little help from my friends.  Hey Houston!  Are
     you listening?
5.  I you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
     Peep #1.  She gets to make so many decisions, many of them pertaining to me.  I should be
     gettin' to make some of those decisions, I think.  Plus, she has opposeable thumbs.  She can
     open tins and play with yarn - even if she does call it knitting - and do all sorts of things.  I
     should have opposeable thumbs, I think.  With opposeable thumbs, I could rule the world!

I now must nominate up to twenty other blogs for this award and, of course, let them know.  And the nominees are...
- Scarlett & Melly at The Adventures of Scarlett and Melly
- Texas, Kitshka & Milou at Texas, a Cat in New York
- Old Kitty at Ten Lives and Second Chances
- The Tabbies at Trout Talkin Tabbies
- Mollie & Alfie at Mollie and Alfie
- Frankie Furter & Ernie at Frankly and Ernestly Speaking
- Patchy Meow at The Five Cats Chronicles
- Felix & Jasper at Felix and Jasper Blogalot
- Sherlock, Traveler & Ash at Feline Purr-spective

WOW!  What a bling-filled post.  I just want everyone to know how much I appreciated receiving these awards.  I love them all.  Each and every one.  Just like I love all of you.  All of you who gave me the awards and all of you who come back, twice every week, to read my blog.  I couldn't blog without you.  After all, what's a blog without friends?  PURRS

And I should just mention this.  I hope you'll all come back on Sunday to read my next post.  I'm doin' my first book review.  That's right...  I'm reviewin' a book!  The book was written by a pal of mine and he's a "national best-selling author."  Yup, that's exactly what it says on the cover.  I sure do wanna do my pal proud so I'm hopin' you'll all read the review and then read his book.  That is, if you haven't read it already.  Just who is this famous pal of mine?  You'll have to come back on Sunday to find out!  hehehe...

  30. Hi
    Back again. I left two messages for your nomination this week and they have not replied sadly. Can you nominate someone else asap as I have to get consent before I can go ahead. Sorry about that but I tried at the start of the week and yesterday and they have not responded. Now worries.
    Best wishes Molly

  31. My comment went into cyber space. I tried to contact your nomination twice and they have not replied. Sorry about that. Can you make another nominations asap as I have to get consent before I can go ahead. Pity as I know you wanted to nominate them. No worries hope to hear from you soon. Again thank you for our award. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

    1. Herman just replied to my blog about this post now. Maybe he was just checkin' his blog posts? Let me try once more... please? I'll get back to you.

    2. Hi Herman popped by via google and I have no way of getting back to him. If just leaves me the link to the post of the blog he wants me to post I can do the rest. Just the link like you gave me is all I need. If he posts it on my blog I will sort it out.
      Best wishes Molly

  32. Wow, Niss! I'm in sincere awe of you chocking up all these awards. And giving them away, like to me. I'm honored and touched and a buncha other stuff. You deserve all the bestest catnip in the world. And toona too. Loves ya, pal!
