Thank You! I Got You Unicorns! And I’m Totally Not Even Lying This Time!

March 28, 2013
In case you missed the announcement at the end of my last post and the fifty billion times I screamed about it on the Facebook and the Twitter, this happened on Sunday:


I could pretend to be all surprised and, like, “Wow, I had no idea I would win.”

But I’m not going to lie.

I kind of had an idea I was going to win.

Mind you, this is not because I think my blog is a better travel blog than any of the other super awesome travel blogs that were nominated.

I mean, come on, now.

Not only do I not think my blog is a better travel blog, I don’t even really think my blog is a travel blog. I mean, wouldn’t that require me to actually write about travel or something?

Instead, I write about my cat.

And then I post photos of myself in my bathrobe.

Well, hello there.

Well, hello there.

But I do think my readers are pretty much THE BEST BLOG READERS ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET EVER.

If anybody could have made this happen, it would totally be you guys.

Now I know I said I’d give you all ponies if I won.

But I decided you deserve something even more awesomer than ponies.

And, of course, we all know that unicorns are better than ponies.

But do you know what’s even better than a unicorn?


Or, what I like to call, a Unicornie!

Ta-da! She's all yours!

Ta-da! She’s all yours!

As you can see, there’s only one of her and a whole lot of you, so you’re probably going to have to take turns. Maybe someone could come up with some kind of sign-up sheet, or something?

But, that’s not all, folks!

Because, seriously, have you ever known me to NOT totally overdo something?

I mean, come on, this is me we’re talking about here.

I also got you this super magical uni-cat:



And this other super magical uni-cat:



Because you can never have enough cats. Especially magical unicorn cats. (What? It’s true. You can’t. Cats are like cheese. The more you have in your life, the awesomer your life becomes.)

But there’s more!

There’s also this amazing one-eyed uni-chihuahua:


The one and only one-eyed, one-horned wonder!

I assure you what he lacks in vision, he totally makes up for in MAGIC.

And, don’t worry, his missing eyeball is not the result of his getting into a horn fight with one of the uni-cats.

Although, I think we all know who’d win if that ever happened.

It would have to be this tough guy right here:

Bad-assest uni-cat EVER, amirite?

Bad-assest uni-cat EVER, amirite?

Umm, I don’t really have any questions for you right now. I just   really wanted to say THANK YOU and YOU ROCK and you deserve about twenty-billion unicorns but these were the only animals that would allow us to put horns on their heads without trampling us to death or pecking out our eyeballs. Oh, and I need to thank my Mom who made the unicorn horns because  I can’t really be trusted with glitter and spray paint.

I've blathered on long enough! Now it's your turn!

    HAHA! The ticked off expression on the fluffy cat is gift enough for me. I once put reindeer antlers on my cat at Christmas and was given a similar look. Priceless! Congrats on the win and thanks for the laughs!

      I know. I keep on looking at that photo and cracking myself up. She reminds me of Ron Swanson crossed with a cat crossed with a unicorn. All of which adds up to awesome.

    And there was peace and justice in the land because the award did actually go to the best candidate for it. And the people were happy, and they hugged their one eyed uni-chihuahuas and everyone lived happily ever after.

    Many, many congratulations. Totally and completely deserved and I hope my readers and followers might have helped our your vote total a bit also (if anyone actually read that endorsement — damn low open rates on newsletters!)

    Keep up the great work.

    Congratulations on the win! You have a lovely, funny blog that I always enjoy reading.

    Although, you know that margaritas–notice the usage of the plural–all ’round would have been a better reward for all your readers’ ballot box stuffing than, well, mass humiliation of one’s pets.

    (Mind you, this admonishment is coming from a girl who once tried to dye her horse’s mane and tail neon pink….)

    Again, congrats.

      Humiliation? Come on, they LOVED that horn. Okay, so maybe only the one white cat tolerated it. And that’s just because we were petting him while we were trying to get the horn on him. He’ll do pretty much anything for a petting session.

    I feel so blessed and magical just to be a reader, liking cats, and one eyed dogs. I… I… can’t tell you how much this post means to me. *tear falling and hugging myself*

    Hey Sally! Congrats! You totally deserve the award. This is my first time of commenting on your post; not because I just discovered it- No! I mean, I have been following your blog even before I knew what the meaning of ‘blogging’ was. LOL. I guess I’ve just been scared that you won’t know how much your posts have affected my life in so many positive ways. Well, here it goes- YOUR BLOG ROCKS 😉
