I'm a big fat loser

Well, I notice it's that time again.
It's award season.
Golden Globes, People's Choice, Grammy's, SAG, Oscars are right around the corner.

And, once again, it's time for the JBlog Awards.

And, once again, I notice I'm not nominated. Last year it was understandable. I was even too new to be considered for best new blog.

But this year, I'm shut out again. I can't even be considered for best new blog cause I'm too freakin' old now. Wow, this must be how William Shatner feels.

Perhaps I need publicity. What's a girl to do?

I know, I need to get out of my car at In and Out Burger with no underwear on...that should do it...hey, don't knock worked for Britney.

Perhaps a good fight with the Donald is just what I need. Hey Donald...your comb-over stinks.

Maybe I could pretend to be James Brown's widow, and go on every entertainment show whining my eyes out.

Oh, what's the use...I'm just not destined to be a winner.

See if I ever share the details of my colonoscopy with you people again.

Don´t be sad! You are MY winner :D

torontopearl said...

Yeah, JS said it just a bit different than I wanted to but the message is the same: You're a winner in my book!

Neil said...

You mean... you're Jewish?

Jack's Shack said...

These aren't awards. It is a glorified popularity contest that has serious issues.

kasamba said...

I just nominated you for best personal blog BUT I think I spelled your name wrong!!!!

kasamba said...

I edited it!!!

Irina Tsukerman said...

You can even nominate yourself!

cruisin-mom said...

J.S.: Awwww thanks :)

T.P.: thanks, as you are in mine, of course

Neil: pu-leeze...with this face?

Jack: well, just once in my life I want to be popular!

kasamba: well, thanks from the bottom of my heart, except I'm not there!
(I checked of course)

irina: now, really, how pathetic do you think I am? !!!!

Ezzie said...

CM - S'ok, it's all disappointing anyway. I got knocked out in the first round of every category I was in (6!) last year.

Ezzie said...

Argh... why can't I find your email in my Outlook!?

Jack's Shack said...

There is a boycott of the JIBs this year. No really, there is. More info to come.

kasamba said...

I must have done something wrong!!!
So how do you do it????
But it's on the best personal blog thread!!!!!


kasamba said...


I DID IT!!!!!

(mexican wave)

cruisin-mom said...

Ezzie and Jack: thank you for the info on the boycott.

kasamba: thanks for your "undying" belief in me!!!!

Stacey said...

LOL, CM your blog is a winner to me! (It has long been one of my favorites).

I think the JIBs are stupid. I have always thought this about them. I hated them last year. I hate them this year.

I hate how people campaign for them. I hate how they post banners about them on their blogs. I hate the bragging and I hate the way posts seem to change around this time of year.

I don't know if I've been nominated and frankly, I don't give a rat's ass.

You mean monkey. ;)

cruisin-mom said...

Stacey: I know that's how you have felt all along. It really is silly...since blogging should not be about being rewarded with awards. I like comments because that means my writing has touched someoone...that is reward enough.

Jack: you just couldn't resist, could ya? :)

Jack's Shack said...

Resist what?

Anonymous said...


I'll be original and post something all warm and reassuring..
instead I give this post my heartiest laugh!!! You did it again!

cruisin-mom said...

Jack: Oy...I'm personally going to send you to Cleveland

TOWIK: thanks, you made me feel all warm inside :)

Jack's Shack said...

Might as well go spend a week in jail. I wouldn't notice the difference.

Anonymous said...

Let me know how the In and Out Burger deal goes. Hey - checking in to rehab always works too.

I love reading your blog. Awards, shmawards. (okay, lame, but you get the idea.)

cruisin-mom said...

Jack: oh I think you'd notice a difference...there's a guy named Bubba waiting for you in jail.

Wendy: the in and out thing worked great...didn't you hear about me? I'm sure Rosie will have something to say about it on Monday's View.

cheated are the clouds said...

And the winner is (as seen threw my eyes) "CRUISIN MOM"

omg CRUISIN poor william shatner and donald but no sorrow for britney she has people for that,

Mr cruisin I have heard threw the grape vine was kind of keen on the no underwear idea, too funny

Give me ten minutes with Bubba and he'll be begging for mercy.

I am a graduate of the Avrech Institute.

Claire said...

To quote one of the states in Miss Congeniality...(I think it was Texas) "We're all winners!". Hee.

I, for one, love your blog. Darn cliquey J blog things.


Sweettooth120 said...

The Oscars are in and I can't believe that Little Miss Sunshine was chosen over Blood Diamond. Blood Diamond is one the very best movies I've ever seen. At least two actors got nominated from it.

And CM, you ain't a loser.

Sheyna Galyan said...

Heya C-M,

We can comiserate. :-) I am the poster child for unpopular.

I like the "Jewish Blog Awareness Month" much more.

And I've found some really, truly caring folks on the J-Blogosphere. Some are hiding behind banter, but they're there.

I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. Once I get this book finished, I'll have a little more time to visit current, new, and not-yet-met J-bloggers.

Can someone explain what's wrong with Cleveland? (Never been there, don't know what I'm missing.)

cruisin-mom said...

Cheated: LOL!!!!!!

Jack: somehow I believe you :)

Claire: thanks! I hate cliques too!

Sheyna: thanks for stopping by, I too, have been lax about getting around to everyone's blog lately.
I'll leave it up to Jack to explain about Cleveland :)

Sheyna Galyan said...

Okay, Jack. What's with Cleveland?

C-M: See, now I have to keep coming to your blog to talk to other bloggers. ;-)

cruisin-mom said...

sheyna, you see, there's a method to my madness

Jack's Shack said...

Can someone explain what's wrong with Cleveland?

The list of problems with cleveland is far too long for this medium.

Sheyna Galyan said...


Okay then...

Years ago, I wrote up a character bio for each of my major characters. Most of it will never see the inside of a novel, but I need the details to figure out perspective and motivation. I had David born in Cleveland but moved to live with his grandparents in Milwaukee when he was three.

Maybe I should change that.

Jack's Shack said...

Cleveland for Milwaukee. Isn't that like leaving one corner of hell for another.

Sheyna Galyan said...

I never said the poor guy didn't have issues. ;-)

Head over heel said...

Dear C-M thank you for leaving such a nice and sweet note on my blog. I like blogging, but at the moment I'm just somehow not coming up with any kind of inspiring, funny blogs, besides having the time...I'm still out there reading blogs and for the moment I like it. I also felt I was too much exposed and somehow I've got the feeling that some people read my blog who know me outside of the blog world. This left me uncomfortable and I couldn't write what I wanted. But I'll be back and I'll allow myself to send you my new blogname via Mia's who apparently has your e-mail address, if I'm not mistaken. Take care and I hope to read some of your very great blogs soon. You're a true inspiration to me.
