(ahem... gasp, cough) Dang it, I'm not prepared...but I promised myself I wouldn't cry... (blows nose)
I'd like to thank God, the Academy, my Mom, my brothers and sisters in the Metal Pounders Local #666, the fellas down at the Blue Oyster Bar, and most of all, actor/singer Leif Garrett... for obvious reasons.
But seriously folks... thanks a bunch. It's nice to know somebody besides me actually reads the nonsense I pump out around here.
Congratulations to the winners!!!!!! I have to admit that I was completely shocked to discover my name on the list of winners! Haha! I certainly wasn't expecting that... Definitely a great surprise today! Thanks so much everyone!
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I was voted as the most helpful Hubber. Thank you!
I actually thought Marisa Wright would win that position and I voted for her as such.
But, Marisa, I agree that you are the most likely to be a HubPages employee—congratulations for winning that well-deserved award. And congratulations to everyone else who won all the other well-deserved awards.
My hearty congratulations to all the winners. All the winners are really great writers with the best stuff. Some of them winning in some other categories than chosen by me. But, they won and proved it.
Thank you, RonEIFran, much appreciated. My journey on HubPages only came about because I was into Macro Photography in a big way in those early days. I suddenly realized that I could utilize those skills to take fellow Feltmakers on a pictorial journey of a different kind:)
