Man, the past two days - I don't know where to start. Actually I do - I'll start by talking about Tracey.
I knew Tracey would do a good job when I asked her to cover for me, whilst I went gallivanting around the motherland. I knew she would create great content, but I wasn't prepared for just how well she would get on with the awesome tight knit community we have here.
That's the major reason why we've decided to keep her on permanently!
In fact, Tracey was nominated by so many of you guys for the great job she did. Batguy, Dr What, and JamesMac all sent in nominations for the Trace-face - but now she is an employee of Allure, she can't win!
Now I'd like to break up proceedings with a parade of Irn Bru photos, lovingly provided by Dr What, who went on an Irn Bru hunt throughout Sydney over the past couple of days to prove that, yes, the Bru can be seen and purchased in Australia.
Alright, now that's out of the way...
Both JamesMag and Steve-O nominated Chuloopa for his awesome Chainsword cake (and I'd also like to thank him for referencing my good self on said cake). Steve-O also gave honorable mentions to Rocketman on the condition that he RETURN TO TAY and Bish for a job well done - whatever that means ;).
Virus__ went on a pilgrimage in order to find my email, just so he could nominate Cakesmith for giving him RIFT over steam - but also wanted to give everyone a shout out for making him feel welcome on TAY.
Lucifer9783 nominated Grandmaster B-Funk in a deliciously formal manner...
Mr. Mark Serrels,
I would like to formally nominate Grandmaster B-Funk, for multiple reasons this week, 1. He Reminded me that I should watch The Dissaperence Of Haruhi Suzumiya 2. He told a funny story about his "Friends" (whatever those things are) and the validity of FIFA 12 as a game Thank you very much,
I would now like to break up proceedings once more with a pic so manly my hippocampus is growing a beard just remembering it.
Yes - that is both FatShady and myself, shaking hands. Remind you of anything?
Okay... fan yourself ladies and we can get back on track!
SHANE nominated JamesMac for giving games away again. The Mac man also received a nom from Aidan for the same reason! Dr What nominated pretty much everyone that went to the Canberra meat (and Tracey) and I totally can't bothered listing them all (oh, all right I will: Anonymous Pessimist, Shiggy Ninty, Blaghman).
Also I received this from Hugo the Barbarian...
I, Hugo the Hungarian Barbarian, along with my stalwart companion Clubby the Clubbing Club, would like to nominate The Cracks for community Kudos, due to the fact he has gifted us with a Baird skin. Multiplayer skin that is, not the stripped off a human carcass types of skin. That would be bad. and gross. and possible illegal.
Be right back, just stopping for a Pepsi Max break.
And I'm back!
Alright - this weeks winner is a shoe-in. I don't think it was ever in any doubt.
He recieved noms from Batguy, Rocketman, SHANE, and Dr What - making him perhaps the most nominated TAYby in history - so congratulations to Blaghman, for hosting the Canberra Meat. Great job man - you are an institution!
Oh, and I totally forgot - Blaghman had a few shout outs of his own...
So, I'd like to nominate Dr. What?, ShiggyNinty and Bish for their help during the Can'd Meat. Shiggy and What? cooked some amazing food for everyone's enjoyment, as well as providing people with sources of entertainment, and Bish did a massive amount of cleaning while he wasn't watching people sleep, which made my life way easier. If at all possible, I'd also like to include a shout-out to everyone who turned up, as they all made up for my lack of preparation by being excellent, particularly Rocketman, who came down from North Queensland, BDKIAF who picked him up from the airport, and Anonymous Pessimist who dropped him back off(as well as driving people down from Sydney, which Shiggy also did).
Alright guys, I'm off - have a great weekend!
