BEST blog written by someone concealed by bandages and not by a cloak:

While I agree completely with this choice, I am idly curious as to who was the runner-up in this category.

Wow! I got best banner! Woo hoo! However, credit should be given to Darrell who took my idea and made it possible.

Best West Coast humor blog, eh? Thanks MCF.. I'll try to live up to that, which means more to me than you know.

Hey hey, I got me an award! :-) I'd like to echo Paul's point above though, how many other Scottish egg-obsessed blogs are there that I had to take on in that category? :-D

Thanks for the tip of the MChat old boy, much appreciated indeed! As for the Cyborg monkeys, are there enough to make up a panel? I always thought there was just the one and if I recall correctly, he wasn't the "team player" sort...

Happy new year mate, and to one and all at the Nexus.

True, as some astute readers noted, there were a few victors unique in his or her particular category, but if a blog merits creation of a category all its own, is it any less than the BEST?

And 'doo, as for other monkeys, has it been so long that the UB2K have been forgotten? Oh yeah....it has. :(

Well MCF it's been a while so you'll have to forgive my memory being a little rusty, those synapses of mine aren't what they used to be! :-)

Only one of the monkeys stuck in my memory, the others sort of slipped but they're all back now after an entertaining read and a quick trip down memory lane...thanks for that! :-D

I don't know what to say... I want to thank all the little people who made this possible, but you're the only one responsible. OK, mcf, thank you for noticing my little blog!
