I've just eaten a packet of Berry Bliss, I'm on my third can of Pepsi Max, and by jeeves my ruddy fingers are sore. This, and the fact that I'm writing like an Englishman, must mean that it's Friday. And it's time for Community Kudos.
This post is the only thing separating me from Mass Effect 3 right now, so you'll forgive me if I'm a little hasty.
Alrighty then! Kudos noms...
We have a runover nom that Tracey forwarded to me from her stupid hotel room in stupid San Francisco where she is currently attending the stupid Games Development Conference. That nom was from Virus__ who wanted to nominate Freeze for being generous and stuff.
Virus__ also dropped some noms for this week as well. He nommed the "lovely" Scree (I'm not quoting to be sarcastic, that's just the actual word Virus__ used) "because she deserves it". Sounds like a good enough reason to me.
Noms from Strange usually hit my inbox at some point on a Friday, but this time round it hit super early. Strange nominated Rivers Melrose for his comments in this post. I'm not sure if this guy was a non-regular poster or an alias, but I agree with Strange — his comments really helped defuse a potentially stupid situation with humour. Great job.
I had a great nom from Jordaan (sorry, don't know your tag off hand) for Snacuum. I'll let him explain, because I think it defines one of the reasons why Kotaku Australia can be a great place to visit.
We had an ongoing argument in the comment section of the SFxT On-Disc DLC article, with very strongly differing opinions, and Snacuum remained a gentleman the whole time, which is mighty respectable, given this happened on the internet. So, yeah, big ol' nom for Snacuum for being polite. Utterly wrong, but polite.
Greenius nomm'd Yellius because he felt sorry for his totally sucky colour, and he also did one of those "I NOM EVERYONE" noms. I like those. Apparently a lot of folks helped him out this week with computer issues.
And — hold the presses folks — JUST THIS SECOND CAKESMITH ALSO GAVE ME "I NOM ALL THE PEOPLES" NOM. You just made it man — just by the skin of your teeth.
Oh, and Greenius got a nom — from Welbot!
Nom time again! This time I'm going to nom Greenius! Why? Cos we've had a game of Draw Something going for over 40 turns and still going strong! Many a laugh has been had and it's been keeping me sane at work! Have to give props to DAN! too, cos he's equally as awesome, but he's a little slower, so he just misses out! HURRY UP AND HAVE YOUR TURN DAN!!!! LOL!
Effluvium Boy. He doesn't like words this guy...
Kudos Noms: Rocketman – Freakin’ hilarious (More than usual) Rebecca – Freakin’ hilarious Ynefel - \o/ Bish – Freakin’ hilarious. Organised Meat like a boss
At first I thought McGarnical's nom was out of the blue — he nommed Weresmurf for a comment made a pretty long time ago. But then I read the comment, which was ace and made a great point. Then it sort of made sense. Good call, and good spot. For the record, I totally agree.
Phew. [Checks inbox one last time] I think that's it! Now for the winner...
I think I'm going to go with Bish. Mainly because he is organising the Sydney Meat, and those things can be quite a lot of effort. Have a good weekend, and if I can drag myself away from Mass Effect 3 I'll see some of you on Saturday night!
