PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.*
This is what happens when you go rock climbing, come home, have hot cocoa for dinner, and then go to check your Twitter stream:
You look up and realize your cocoa is cold and you’ve spent two hours doodling on a screenshot from an award you didn’t know about until a few hours earlier.
The screenshot is taken from the Shorty Awards. Anyway, I thought this was cool because I can almost brush my digital fingers against Richard Castle’s avatar. And since Castle is my fictional boyfriend (he totally knows it, I’m sure), this pleased me greatly.
I don’t really think there’s any reason to ask for more votes, as I don’t really see myself advancing up the list any farther, and that’s totally cool, it gave me a kick and a laugh. And by the time I post this, I’m sure I’ve dropped down in the ranking.
But if you do feel inclined to vote, I suggest you do it for the HAT. Yes, THIS HAT:
Because, to me, the BEST part about this whole thing isn’t even being sandwiched between Castle and Rowling.
It’s the fact that the Shorty Awards USE YOUR TWITTER AVATAR.
Which means that as long as I’m there on that page, MY WITCHY HAT WILL BE THERE, TOO.
This concludes the PSA.
*I refuse to admit both to how much time I actually wasted messing around with this tonight, and to how much fun I had. Thanks for the fine folks who started it all :p
