Irrelevance!

I feel proud and delighted to have won an award for irrelevance to gardening. The anonymous simian, the Garden Monkey, has been running his/her Fork'N Monkey 2009 awards (where all the worthy winners and nominees can be found).

In amongst such illustrious winners as Nigel Colbourn, James Alexander-Sinclair and VP, I won the award for Complete Irrelevance for my celebration of cats and bad poetry (and bad acronyms as it was later pointed out to me). The previous link gives some of the history of the event. Click here for links to all those who were kind/foolish enough to take part.

Thank you to those who remembered this event and voted in the poll - I'm so chuffed about the award that I have (at least temporarily) renamed the blog in honour. And to those who took part in or suffered the LAPCPADPOUB day event - don't worry, I think it was a one off. Probably...

Oh so deserving, Happy! That was the best meme ever and more fun than a mud wrestling contest, no holds barred. If ever it comes up again, count me in! Congrats to all the winners! :-)

Well done, you so richly deserved an award and you got one now and such a prestigious one it is too. ;-)

I'll never forget LAPwhatsit day for as long as I live or thereabouts as it was such fun!

VP said...

Congratulations HM - it was such fun for so many of us, so it was no trouble to dig in the old memory to retrieve it at nominations time.

And what a tribute you've given your award ;)

Crumbs - does this mean I have to rename mine along the lines of Wilf Lunn or Vision On?

I suppose congratulations would be irrelevant ... But seriously, well, quite seriously, Well done! I enjoyed LAPCPADPOUB day very much, although I'm ashamed to say I didn't participate.

Thank you all and especially thak you to the Garden Monkey for hosting the awards.

I suppose it should really merit a katty photo and verse, but I don't think I should subject anyone to any more of that sort of thing.
