The 2005 "Bloggie" Awards


Forget the Oscars, Tonys, Emmys or Grammys, FITS has an exclusive sneak peek at the winners of what is truly Western Civilization's most prestigious honor - the "Bloggies." And instead of boring old dust-collecting, phallic-looking trophies, "Bloggie" winners not only get an all-expense paid trip to Upper Conway Lower Aynor to receive their honors, but their own blue-ribbon winning Alpaca (pictured left with State Sen. Linda Short) as well. So without further adieu, the envelopes, please (get your Alpaca pooper-scoopers ready, kids):

Thanks, FITS! I'm honored to have been recognized by the Bloggies.

Daniel,

You are close. Flooding was actually the source of problems in TP's room. The ant problem was present on the second floor hallway of Chez Tidwell.

But Jerry McGuire is still a great chick flic, is it not?
