what can you do with a peep?

What can you do with a peep? NOTHIN'!  My peep is beyond totally useless.  I'd trade her in, in a heartbeat but, to be honest, I don't think anyone would take her.  MOUSES!

So once again, I am completely behind in the acceptin' of the awards and, once again, it is all the peep's fault.  I've said it before and I'll say it again... MOUSES!

Where do I start?  WHERE DO I START?  I know.  I'll start by explainin' that due to my first peep's total and complete incompetence, I have lost track of what rules go with which awards and am incredibly confused.

Confusion is not a state in which I like to be.  On the contrary, I like to be on top of things.  In control of my surroundings.  That peep of mine sure does have some explainin' to do.

And to make matters worse, tonight is the night of the Oscars.  I bet the peeps running the Oscars aren't a million and one years behind with their awards.  I bet the peeps runnin' the Oscars are a whole lot more responsible than my ol' Peep #1.  Too bad I couldn't teleport my peep over to California and do a little switch-a-roo.   Actually, I haven't completely ruled out the feasibility - or lack thereof - of that plan.  Too late for this year but perhaps I can work somethin' out for 2015.

Please forgive me but, I've gotta do it.  I'm gonna have to cheat a bit on this but please remember, it is all the peep's fault.  You see...  I know who gave me what.  I just don't know what I'm supposed to do with each award so I'm gonna kind of squish 'em all together and skip the business about my tellin' you all seven things about myself 'cause, quite frankly, there's not much new to tell.  That okay with everybody?  Sure do hope so 'cause that's just what I'm gonna do.

For each award, I will thank the blogger or bloggers who gave me it to me, addin' links to their blogs. Then I will pass said award along to three other bloggers.  I think this is gonna work.  I hope this is gonna work.  Paws crossed.  Let's see...

The lovely Beverly over at moggiepurrs awarded me with the Reader Appreciation Award.  I have received this award in the past but not with this pretty sunflower graphic so I figured I'd accept it again.  I've quite often admired this particular graphic and was somewhat envious of those who had it so I'm very happy to finally see it comin' my way.  Thank you so much Beverly!

And the Reader Appreciation Award goes to...
- Selina at One Eye on the Future
- Quinn at Catitude
- Purrla at Singapore Kitty

Beverly at moggiepurrs also presented me with The Most Creative Blog Award.  This is a very special award to receive 'cause I really do strive to be creative when I write my blog posts.  I like to look at things in different ways and whatnot. I like to mix it up a bit.  Sure is nice to have my efforts noticed.  Thank you so much Beverly for awardin' me with The Most Creative Blog Award.

And the winners of The Most Creative Blog Award are...
- Nellie & Kozmo at The Cat from Hell
- Herman at It's a Wonderpurr Life
- Cathy Keisha at Stunning Keisha

But Beverly of moggiepurrs didn't stop there.  By the way, have you read moggiepurrs?  It's an excellent blog, for sure.  Well worth visiting.

Beverly from moggiepurrs also honoured me with the amazin', Most Influential Blogger award.  Influential...  I like that!  I really like that a lot.  Influential...  I must remember to mention to the peep how other peeps find me to be influential.  I shall put that on my list of things to do tonight. Thank you very much Beverly for thinking of me as bein' influential and passing this award, my way.

And the Most Influential Blogger award goes to...
- Austin at CATachresis
- The Crew at Colehaus Cats
- Brian at Brian's Home

As you probably already know, it has been a long term goal of mine to have my blog read all around the world.  I have readers from six of the seven continents but so far, no penguins from Antarctica have shown up in my stats.  MOUSES!  After realizin' that Antarctic penguins don't read a lot, I set my sights on the International Space Station.  Disappointment, once more.  Not a single astronaut has read Nerissa's Life from up on the Space Station.  Can you believe it?  I've tried everythin' short of teleportin' on up there myself and keyin' in my blog's URL.  Gonna have to do that some day, for sure.  Maybe tomorrow...

But perhaps this lack of astronauts readin' my blog from the International Space Station will change now that I have been awarded the Best Blog Around the World award.  Surely astronauts will want to read a blog that has been honoured with the Best Blog Around the World award.  I have all paws crossed that this will make a world (hehehe...) of difference and make it so.

So it is with great pleasure that I accept The Best Blog Around the World award from my wonderful pal, Speedy. Thank you Speedy!  Speedy is the star of the world-famous blog, Speedy, the Cheeky House Bunny.  Have you read it yet?  You should.  You really, really should.

But then I was honoured a second time with this great award, The Best Blog Around the World.  My pals over at Owned by a Husky were also so kind as to present me with it.  It's really neat 'cause they live right here in Canada, just like me.  Sometimes, the world can be a very small place. Nice and cosy.  Yeah...  nice and cosy.  So I also wanna thank everyone over at Owned by a Husky for thinkin' nice things about Nerissa's Life and passin' this award on to me.  Thank you!

And the Best Blog Around the Word Award goes to...
- The Staff at Dash Kitten
- Savvy & Sage at Savannah's Paw Tracks
- Timmy at Tomcat Commentary by Tim

Finally, we have the Excellence Award.  I just love that big gold seal of approval that is this award of excellence.  What a pretty award this is, for sure.  Just kind of sparkles and shines and whatnot. Also, it's always nice to be told that other bloggers find your blog to be excellent.  Makes a kitty feel all warm and happy inside, you know?

My good friend Angel who writes the lovely - and it really is, lovely - blog, angelswhisper2011 kindly presented me with this Excellence award.  Thank you so much Angel.  I really appreciate receivin' this a lot.  It means a lot comin' from a blogger like you.

But I also want to thank my pals over at Owned by a Husky again 'cause they, too, gave me the Excellence award. Wonderful!  Thank you.  I appreciate it a lot.  Really, I do. I'm gettin' that warm, happy feelin' all over again, knowin' that great Canadian bloggers like yourselves are enjoyin' Nerissa's Life.

And the winners of the Excellence award are...
- Spitty at Spitty Speaks
- Sammy at onespoiledcat
- Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head

So that brings me to the end of my list of awards...  for now.  Yes, you heard that right.  Or should that be rightly?

Anywho...  no sooner am I caught up but I'm already behind.  Again, it's all the peep's fault, for sure. It's always all the peep's fault, you see.  You know my motto...  When in doubt, blame the peep.  Works for me.  MOUSES!


  1. Concatulations on your awards, and on the winners who deserved it now (even the doggie) ! Purrs

  2. WOW! Congrats on all of the mighty fine awards, I hope you now have a huge trophy case pal! Thanks for sharing with us too!

  3. I don't think your mom-person is moore hopeless than mine :)
    ConCATulations to all the awards !!

  4. Thank you Nissy! I feel honored to be included amongst such great kitty bloggers!

    I'm sorry we've not checked in with you as much as we should ... we're trying to catch up!

    I shall award this ... ahem ... award (I just HATE being repetitive) ASAP.

    Love to you & your peep! (They do their best ... )


  5. ConCATulations everyone x

  6. Oh Nissy!! I feel your pain! I KNOW what it's like to have a totally inadequate peep. I do. I REALLY do! I believe I have awards that The Staff's hidden from me because she actually can't remember who gave them to me!!!! Can you believe it? Yep I know you can!! I think she's got them for sale on ebay if truth be told, but I am blowed if I'm going to buy my own awards! It's embarrassing!

    Anyways, THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving us the influential blogger award. This one I am taking into custody for its own protection. Oh yes I am :)) You haven't heard the last of this one.

    PeeEss ConCats on ALL your awards. Despite the peep, you really deserve them all xoxoxox

  7. ConCatulations on those great awards. We've thought of selling our Mom on eBay but then we would have to start from scratch training a new one!

    The Florida Furkids

  8. Oh Nissa!
    Thanks yous so furry much for giving mes the Most Creative Blog Award! Mes loves to thinks that me is creative! And mes LOVES RED Shoes!


  9. That's a whole lot of awards, Nissy. CONGRATULATIONS!

  10. First...that is surely a pawful of awards Nissy!! Shocking that peep #1 left them lying around for so long....of course, just what my staff does all the time...where is all that training time we spent on them going to? And second, THANK YOU for the pawsome award...I do have it but to come my pal who now has won so many contests for blog writing...this is pretty special....paw pats, Savvy

  11. Whoa! Concatulations on ALL those awards, Nerissa! Who needs the Oscar when you already have so much recognition!

  12. MOWZERS, you sure did a thorough job cleaning up after the peep! We're hopelessly out of luck on our end. We KNOW we've received several awards, and yet...and yet... we three intrepid investigative kitties have only managed to track down ONE. Sad, sad state of affairs. Think we can install a peep upgrade maybe? Reboot? Ctrl+alt+nip-ear doesn't work. We TRIED.

  13. Oh those darn peeps but until we grow opposable thumbs we're stuck with them. Concats on giving and receiving awards with aplomb.

  14. Wow, Nissy, we feel ever so honored to receive and accept this award from you. Our peep is just as behind as yours. We have a bunch of awards sitting in a post and need to thank all kinds of different friends. She keeps getting distracted by things like trips to the Moon and the Queen of Hearts Dance and Lily Olivia's Birthday. But she has sworn (she does that a lot) that she will post all our awards on Thursday. And now you have at least eight astronauts who have commented on your blog…us! Concats to you on your many, many well-deserved awards! Thanks again ever so much. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  15. Thanks for the award, Nissy and concats on all those awards. I’d like to accept it for all the homeless and shelter cats without blogs.

  16. Thanks so much Nerissa! Sent you a private note too!

  17. Congratulation on all of your awards, Nerissa! You did a great job of announcing them. I know it takes a lot of work and time to create an awards blog post -- all that linking and such. You could work for the Oscars!!

  18. Great job, Nerissa!

  19. We would trade peeps, but ours is really no better and it may not be helpful.

  20. Congratulations on each and every one!
    That's a whole lot of awards.

  21. Oh Nerissa! You are light-years ahead of me!!! I have gotten soooooo behind on posting awardies and now here you've given me this fantastic EXCELLENCE one--I think this might ne the one to get her to do a post for me because as a teacher she just can't resist a GOLD SEAL! Thanks, Buddy!

  22. Funny how you got the same awards from different people,! Your very welcome for your awards and congrats on your other ones!!!
    We always enjoy your blog Nis, you are one of a kind, and fit it quite nicely with us husky folk! Hehe!
    ((Husky hugz))
    Frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky

  23. Oh Nissy, you remember so well. Concatulations on winning all of the awards and I love all of the kitties you are awarding them to. I can't wait to see them post them. xox

  24. You did well! Our mom is very slack helping us keep up with awards.

  25. Well done on your awards, and please swop your peep with the organisers of the Oscars - I bet it would be hilarious!!

  26. Thank you my good friend Nissy for the "Excellence" Award nomination. I am humbled that you'd think me worthy of it. I'm also VERY happy for you with that huge pile of bling you've been accumulating - there's TONS of people who adore you and your bloggy and all these awards are PROOF (as if you needed it!!!!). Thanks're the BESTEST!

    Hugs, Sammy

  27. Great report on all you awards. Our Person does terrible with awards. It is hard to keep up with them. You won a lot of them and you gave a good report on each one. Well done. Sorry the Penguins are not reading your blog. They just don't know what they are missing. Take care.

  28. That was a mammoth effort Nerissa...the staff really do need a fine tune sometimes ...but I think the bloggie peeps will understand :) hugs Fozziemum x

  29. Hi Nissy many concatulations on all your supurr pawsome awards!!! XOX Purrs Basil XOX

  30. Congratulations on getting the best blog my sweet nissy♥♡♥♥♥♡

  31. Wow! That's a lot of awards and each well deserved! Even the peep can see that, right? Thank you for sharing with us! Admiring purrs....

  32. Nissy, I wouldn't worry! I'm sure that there's a spaceman somewhere who's read it and as for the penguins - well we all know what they're like! Sounds like the Best Blog Around the World is literally going around the world!

  33. Thanks so very much Nissy. I also suffer greatly at the hands of our Peep, the Dad. Just think what we could accomplish if we had decent staff! The mind boggles at what could be but is not due to the boggled minds of our so sad staff..
    Again Thanks my furend!

  34. Niss, I bet if you put your awards end to end, they would circle the globe and touch! You are a pawsome reporter, and I'm proud to call you my Bestie! Concatulations on all your awards. And thank you so much for including me on being awarded. As always, I appreciate your support. Pawhugs!

  35. Well done on all those awards, Nissy! That's a lot to keep track of. One day those penguins will discover your amazing blog :-)

  37. So many awards .. I'm impressed. Your deserve it Nissy. We love your blog.
