FLAPJACKS: So why aren’t you nominated for this year’s Canadian blog awards?
ME: I’m not?
ME: Are you sure?
FLAPJACKS: I used your computer and everything.
ME: Which reminds me, you owe me half a dozen bagels.
FLAPJACKS: I got you bagels.
ME: You got me circular bread from Loblaws. Do we have to have the bagel talk again?
ME: Good. Anyway. I figured that since I won last year I’d get auto-nominated or something.
FLAPJACKS: It doesn’t work that way, I guess. Didn’t you just nominate yourself last year?
FLAPJACKS: What, somebody else nominated you? For real?
ME: For real. I didn’t even know the Canadian Blog Awards existed. I figured self-nominating was, like, against the rules or something.
FLAPJACKS: Or at least just not classy.
ME: Exactly. It’s like wearing a business suit to a white-tie event.
FLAPJACKS: But on the other hand now you’re not gonna win the award two years running.
ME: And I’m not irritated about that at all.
FLAPJACKS: I don’t think you –
ME: At. All.
ME: Anyway, other than Yarn Harlot all the blogs there are mostly teeny. I have bigger fish to fry. Bigger and better internet site awards await!
FLAPJACKS: Have you ever even been nominated for one of those?
ME: Shut up.
FLAPJACKS: And didn’t you actively campaign to win some of them?
ME: Shut up.
FLAPJACKS: Man, you’re testy.
ME: That’s what happens when people steal my bagels.
