This was the week where I mostly stayed at home, played Skyrim and nursed a nasty does of the shingles — but I managed to make it back in time for Friday and Community Kudos!
Well, this week started off with one of those — 'IGNORE ALL THE KUDOS NOMS FOR ME I DON'T WANT KUDOS' emails. Typically these come from Fatshady or Chuloopa, but this week said email was from Trjn.
But guess what folks — I can't ignore the voice of the people! If someone nominates you, it must be taken seriously. I am but an arbiter for the people! AND THEIR VOICES MUST BE HEARD!
Oh, and Trjn actually did some nominating himself — for TheLastQuestion, for being all advicey and stuff. And by that I mean giving good advice. Did the shingle fry my writing brain? Most probably.
Actually TheLastQuestion got a hefty chunk of noms — from Freyr and Jo to be specific. Both noms discussed his gentle caring manner and completely boss way of dishing out advice.
Chuloopa dropped another early nom with an email that began with a warning.
I hope the scurvy is starting to go away now! That'll teach you for: a. Boarding a priate ship b. for not eating enough oranges.
Chuloopa's noms were for BDKIAF and Rocketman, for giving him a 3DS game. You guys really are awesome. Chuloopa wanted you to know that he really appreciated the extra bubble wrap. I don't want to know what he did with it.
Oh, what's this in my inbox? Another nom for BDKIAF (what does that stand for? Oh... I just googled it! I thought it was Big Daddy Kotaku In A Fridge, turns out I was wrong). The nom came from Shane, who also lionised BDKIAF's penchant for generosity!
Shane also informed me that 'Snake' was an anagram of 'Sneak', which blew my simple, simple mind.
Myself and Scree have something in common — we both had rubbish weeks. She wanted to thank a bunch of you guys for helping her through it: Blaghman, Bish, Virus__, NovaCascade, TechKnight, Lamboomann007, Rize, Freeze S. Preston Icequire, Trjn, and Shane. Great job guys.
I received a quick nom from Notorious R — for Rize, who gifted him a copy of Killing Floor on Steam.
The final nom I received was pretty confusing. Can someone kindly translate?
If Freeze S Preston Icequire were describe the Kudosity of this week he would use the word Irrigational.
I have 3 Noms today. Why 3? Pi, that's why.
Let's see here. I have a turquoise ellipses nom for Trjn for being a handy fellow and helping a few people including myself.
Here's a viridian rhombus nom for Shane/Fabio for being so damn dreamy.
And finally a burnt sienna trapezoidal nom for the word filter for forbidding discussion about Dick Smith.
Till next time have a porcinely ambiguous day.
Also — on the filter note, just quietly, we sort of nuked it. SHHHHHHHHH! Play nice everyone and hopefully no-one will notice!
As for the winner? Man, it's kind of a tough one, but I'm going to call it for TheLastQuestion!
Congrats mate, and have a great weekend everyone!
STOP PRESS! I just this second received a nom from McGarnical directed at Puppylicks for posting this in TAY. As McGarnical said in the email: "you know he's earned it."
