Award Catsup

"The blog awards poured forth across the earth smiting all manner of beast and man. They smote creatures that crawl in the dust and creatures that fly in the heavens. Then, for good measure they smitted some fish, because they could and fish are slimy. Finally they converged upon the lowly blog of a writer of questionable hygiene with every intent to smite the living bejesus out of him. But the odd looking writer was crafty and built a fortress forged from stacks upon stacks of rejection letters, holding the smite-happy blog awards at bay. Finally a truce was agreed upon involving banana pudding and peace fell over the land. The writer and the blog awards lived happily ever after. 

-The End-  

I was super busy last week and didn't get the chance to post much so I'm playing catch up. While I was off taking and grading finals, several generous individuals were kind enough to bestow my humble blog with an award! 

Pamela over at The Death Writer  and T.Z. Wallace at One Year Until Book Launch both bestowed me with The Versatile Blogger Award! 


Rather than follow the rules I'm going to follow Pamala's lead and post a picture of myself (and my beautiful wife) with a cigar.

Honeymoon Cruise!

Also, L.G. Keltner at Writing off the Edge was kind enough to give me the Fabulous Blog Ribbon and the Stylish Blogger award!


Again, rather than follow the rules, I'm just going to post a few pictures of some of my study animals because they are both stylish and fabulous!

Spawning fish.

Beaver live-trapping.

Sleepy elk.

Grizzly bear cub (drugged, not dead).
Curious deer.
Thanks to everyone for the awards!

  1. Awww,I love the curious deer pic! I'm a little scared of the drugged grizzly bear, though. Thanks for joining me in posting a cigar pic. I think yours isn't quite as dysfunctional as mine:)

  5. Love the "Drugged, not dead" caption, LOL! And it's so clear that you're a talented writer, Adam, from that first blurb up there. I love it. And pictures are always fun. It's weird that we're all really people with real lives and jobs and families outside of our writing madness ;)

    2. I don't want people getting the wrong idea that I'm killing bear cubs. That's no how I roll.

      We should have a "Day Jobs" blogfest or something. It might give people a chance to share a little more about themselves.
