AHEM! Your attention please...

Sorry, that's not "The Complacency Chronicles." It's "THE AWARD-WINNING COMPLACENCY CHRONICLES," as voters in the River Cities' Reader annual Best of the Quad Cities poll voted us #2 Best Local Blog of 2006. World domination gets one step closer...


In all seriousness, though, if you took the time to vote for my blog, I'm humbled and grateful. Thanks, all. And, of course, if something should happen to The Air Strange (this year's winner), The Complacency Chronicles vows to wear the crown and complete all duties of Miss Best Local Blog 2006.

Brown, you have officially jumped the shark with your submission of a photo of your two cats to Little Loves. Not to say that Little Loves hasn't jumped the shark some time ago, but still....

HA! That's SO not shark jump-worthy, is it???

I did that in direct response to my mother's less-than-subtle hints of late... such as:

"Gee, I sure wish I had some grandbabies to play with!"

...each and every time she's with me and sees a baby. So I tried to explain to her that she's got 2 perfectly lovely grandcats to dote on, but she wasn't amused. Ergo, I put Bez & Izzy in the paper to further drive her up a wall.

Personally, I think Larry the Dog on the back page stole my thunder.

So true Shane, and I feel your pain. My mother was after me for years(decades) to produce grandbabies. But I showed her-----I didn't have any until I was 40!( I don't advise this if it can be avoided!)

PS: I agree---Larry the Dog rocked but only provided further evidence that "Little Loves" has jumped the shark!

WHOO-HOO!! CONGRATS! You'll always be number one to me tho'. BTW, I promise that next year, I will be able to fill in the minimum requirements on the poll so I can vote... even if I have to make stuff up. ;P

Little Loves can jump the shark all it wants... one of my jobs is to help proofread that page. Talk about your headaches... people need to learn how to SPELL prior to naming their babies, that's all I'm sayin'.

Oh, and Ghost? Technically you let me come in SECOND.

"...people need to learn how to SPELL prior to naming their babies..." LOL!

But I got to thinking (dangerous, I know) that if Little Loves has crossed the barrier of people only into animals, what's to stop people from submitting photos of inanimate objects for next year's Little Loves?

I mean like golf clubs, bowling balls, Budweiser (cans or bottles), chocolate, cars/trucks, etc. When you're talking about what,not just who, people consider as their "Little Loves", the sky is the limit. Will you be submitting a photo of your TV to next year's Little Loves? hee!hee!

Dude,

Insanity follows closely the path of parenthood. I can't imagine the hit my system would take if I had a nest of crumb crunchers.

I have a cat named Ringo, and that is as far as I'm going to get to having little Gucc, Jr.

I don't date women with kids, and I don't expect to have any in the near or distant future.

I could listen to Peaches all day long and still have no desire to have kids.
