Award-Winning Village Idiot

by Jan Geronimo on January 2, 2009

Surprise, surprise – this village idiot has got an award from Mye, a fellow blog author who is into food, scrapping, events, home and parenting. The way she’s going she may yet take home another award for her affable and philanthropic bent: Ms. Congeniality. :)

This is the award she shared with the resident village idiot -

This, she explained, was for visiting and commenting on her wonderful blog. May pakinabang din pala pagiging tsismoso ko, ano? (Being nosy has its own rewards, huh?)Hehehe.

It’s best to pay forward this award to you, my dear readers. But I’d like to keep it atop my cabinet for a while. After all, this is my first award. Secondly, I’m sleep-deprived at the moment; in my euphoria, if I don’t watch out, I just might spread the love to every lurker, spammer, and dark character you’d hate rubbing elbows with. Hahaha.

Village Idiot’s Tech Savvy

I was up till the wee hours in the morning when a reader emailed me whether I had seen his comments on this blog. I thought this guy was putting me on – there were no email notifications for me. I rechecked the blogger dashboard. None.

But because I’m as you all know a sucker for coffee, reading and writing, and comments I busted a vein or two figuring this mystery out. Ding! I signed out of blogger and gmail. And signed back in. And there they were indeed on the blogger dashboard – 20+ comments on queue which were just sitting there as early as 27 December.

I went to sleep at almost 4:00 am, after dutifully replying to each comment. If you’re one of those who left a comment this then is my excuse for not getting back at you. Pardon me, tech savvy is not my middle name. Hehehe.

One other thing – after I’ve done writing my replies, I found the darn Gmail notifications. All of them, including my comments on your comments.

So here it is – I’m glad to share this village idiot monicker with my big brother Gmail. We rock, brother Gmail.

    Well, it's always nice to get an award, I guess? I got one or two before, but hell if I can even remember from who, or for what they were even for! Obviously, this means I that should soon also be up for another award, namely the - "Idiot of the Century Award!"

    At least I would have earned it for the simple reason that I am truly an idiot at times!

    By the way, like Ismail N, I too love reading your blog. You have a nice light and witty style that anyone can appreciate - yes, even a real idiot like myself!

    Keep up the good work.

    Ha ha.. You really have some styles when putting all those words together. I love reading your blog, bro. Keep up the good work and I'm sure you'll get better with all those tech stuff like I did before. Btw, will I get an award for commenting on this blog? There are plenty of spaces in my throphy cabinet at the moment. :)
