Not The Post I Was Going To Make

Okay guys and dolls (Luke be a Jedi tonight...just be a Jedi tonight...do it for Yoda while we serve our guests a soda...and do it for Chewie and the Ewoks...and all the other puppets!), this isn't the post I was going to make. I was going to post about the things I've said on Twitter, because I was ill and tired and couldn't think of anything else. But then something wonderful happened. I got me a super-special-fantastic-mega-ORIGINAL award from Hazel
Adorable ain't it? I think so
I know I've done way to many awards posts in the past, but I wanted to do this one because like I said, it's original, Hazel came up with it herself. and even though it took her three days to get to me, she got to me eventually. Plus she said very nice things about me. And I'm a whore. I said that, not her. I charge per hour btw. Anyway, here's what she had to say about me.


Mark/The Rambling Person - "Ninja Assassin"

You set the standard for what makes a good blogger in my eyes. You try to blog everyday, you always reply to comments and you also leave comments that are always genuine and insightful! You're also extremely modest which is so refreshing to read. I really value your friendship so you're not allowed to ever stop blogging because the blogosphere would be a much darker place without ya!

I think my face actually melted off when I read that. It was really sweet :) Especially because she called me a ninja assassin. I think you'll find though with all the black I wear that the blogosphere is a very dark place with me in it, my clothes are absorbing all the damn light. Yes that is how it works, I said so. 

I also like that she thinks I'm modest. I've never seen myself as modest, I see it more as self loathing really. Whenever someone says I'm nice or anything though I do play it down. I'm not all that special. Really.  

The only thing I'm going to argue with is that you don't need to post every day to be a good blogger. Lots of blogs I follow are on a thrice weekly (ABFTS is only twice weekly and it's GODLY) and they are still amazing. What sets me as a good blogger is that I reply to comments and I've even had full conversations with people on their comments. Just ask Caroline and Bob. I think if Caroline doesn't get sick of talking to me (or maybe she already has) our discussion on games will never end.

This is really dragging on, so I just want to say one last time, thank you Hazel for the award, and for the very very very kind words. You made a crazy, creepy, old, ninja assassin happy. 

PS DAMN YOU BLOGGER FOR NOT LETTING ME SET MY LOCATION TO VALHALLA! FACEBOOK LETS ME!

  3. @Mai Yang Well I did always want to be the angel of death. Being an angel and a ninja assassin worked just fine for him lol.

  4. Congrats on your award! It really is very sweet.

  5. haha! okay, you'll be the angel of death just like Joe Black? and I'll be the reaper like "Ryuk" of Death Note =)

    guess they're both the same? haha!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hahaha they aren't really the same no, Ryuuk is a God of Death or Shinigmai or whatever you want to call them (personally I prefer Shinigami, but god of death sounds cool too). He kills people whenever really, the grim reaper seems to merely kill people at the end of their lifespan, or he just handles their souls after they've died. But seeing as they say his touch can kill, I guess he kills too. I really thought about that too much.

    i totally agree that you always give insightful comments and that you are modest
    Congratulations!! ^_^

  8. Lol I'm giving the award out in no particular order! :P

    And yes, blogging everyday doesn't necessarily make you a good blogger, I just like the fact that you do :)

    I'm so glad you liked this though!

  9. @Indistinctive Writer I'm sure she'll get to you eventually :) It took her 3 days to get to me. Thank you though ^^

    @Hazel Yes you are :P I know you aren't, and I've considered that some of the people you gave it to before me deserved it more (modesty). I really did like it yeah, it's always nice to hear people say nice things about you :)

    @The Angry Lurker Thank you very much ^^

  11. (I bet he's actually bribing everyone ;D)

    ReplyDelete
  12. @Fang Admit it, I'm just that bad ass. I'm kidding, I don't know why, but I do know it makes me happy. I'm not bribing anyone though, I have no money, and no one has asked me to do a guest post or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congrats man! You are indeed a good blogger because you get involved and actually care for the readers. Many more prizes to come, for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hahaha that was a sweet one haha.
    And Valhalla will never be yours (says blogger) NEVERRR EVVAA!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. aws. okay! I'll be the Shinigami and you'll the angel of death. wow. that puts me like the one in charge..right? haha..I mean, I am the God of Death and you're just my angel..sounds really cool. hahahahah!

    oh! I'm loving this Shinigami thing. hahahah!

  16. Congrats to you, I agree with what you said about comments too. Posts are more about quality then quantity, comments are what turns any blog into an interactive place, and you do that very well.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Dude! It's all true! Except the whore part. Can't vouch for that one.

    ReplyDelete
  18. A well deserved reward. Whenever I leave a comment I always come back to see what you said in response to my comment. You are very interactive blogger and that makes for a great blog!

    Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Angel Assassin. Sounds like a great title for a movie.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Hasidic Plumber as long as herpes or raccoons aren't one of them I'm happy. Can you get herpes from a raccoon? O_o

    @Dilord I've already earned my ticket to Valhalla. And Hell. I wonder where I'll end up.

    @Mai Yang HAhahaha I think really that the Shinigami are just basically the grim reapers of Japan, and as such both are one and the same. However, I'm not sure where the angel of Death would stand in that hierarchy. This is what happens when you mix religion with anime, it ends badly with confusion all around.

    @Tony Storm Thanks ^^

    @Dirtycowgirl Thank you very much :) and thanks for showing me how to make my comments a delicious yellow.

    @Kathy Thank you ^^

    @Copyboy I can vouch for it, I'm a whore. Cash only though.

    @Allenstesch haha as sweet as she is, she's said similar things about everyone else, though yes it did make me "dawwww".

    @Danjor21 Thanks :D Very few people come back (or strike up a conversation anyway)

    @Film Geek Bastard It does but I'd rather see a ninja assassin. Though would the movie be about an angel assassin or someone who assassinates angels?

  22. @my 2 Pesos Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I too like to think Hazel is giving them in order. (I was the third mention on the first post!)
    But anyway, congrats on the award! You deffinitly deserve it! I enjoy not only your posts but all your comments on other peoples posts I see!

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Intredasting Bolg It does ^^

    @Bersercules Your opinion of me may change tomorrow when you read my Minecraft story lol but until then thank you very much :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Congratulations! :) An angel and an assassin, rolled into one. Hazel's able to see. So did I. :P

    So true. Blogging everyday doesn't really make you a great blogger. But it sure is admirable. :D

    Again.. congratulations, Mark. :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Leah Thanks for the kind words and the congratulations :)

    @Michael I love you too, yes homo. Kidding,no homo, but loving. It is nice to see you back too.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Eh? Ninja? Assassin? That's redundant.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Henry You're redundant :( You just don't realise how prevalent they are because no one has ever really seen one.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hazel is right though, I love reading your comments! Even though some take a while to read xD i do learn something from them. plus you are really dedicated!

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Caroline thank you, when you're talking about 3 different subjects in one go it can take time to get the point across :P

    ReplyDelete
  32. I totally agree with her- you are one of the best bloggers I come across. Plus you reply to comments, which is always nice. :D
