The CalendarOk, so... Mr. Lady semi-burst my bubble by telling me that they already have a 'Hot Daddy Blogger' calendar, but then I was like, "Oh, but do they have a Badass Daddy Blogger calendar? That's what I'm talkin' about!"
"So, who will be in this calendar?" she asks--I'm paraphrasing to omit potentially embarrassing dialog from the quote.
"Oh, well, definitely Black Hockey Jesus, Mike from The Newborn Identity, Sleep Deprivation Ninja :), hmmm.... I need to expand my list...."
"BusyDad will totally do it...." She offers.
Right. So here's the challenge: Who would you nominate to be in a Badass Daddy Blogger Calendar, to debut at BlogHer 2009, filling our pockets with gold and our phone books with the numbers of screaming fans.... er, that sounded better in my head... Oh, well, now just because the nominee has to be badass doesn't mean he can't also be "hot". I mean, obviously--look who is already on the list.
This is my brainstorm list so far (alphabetically):
Black Hockey Jesus
Captain Dumbass (Us & Them)
cIII (Goat and Tater)
Cynical Dad (Chag)
Dad Gone Mad (Danny Evans)
Mike (Newborn Identity)
Sleep Deprivation Ninja
The AwardsI finally got around to making some Ninja awards for some of the kick-ass wordsmiths out there. If you don't get mentioned, don't feel bad, it doesn't mean you suck; it just means I forgot about you or ran out of time writing this...because you suck? No, no, stop thinking like that! You are a very special person and people like you. And maybe I'll mention you next time.... or not.
Of course, anyone mentioned above is welcome to these badges and certainly would spawn a nice dissertation on badassery as they all do KILL. But I won't mention all of them explicitly. They all deserve the Golden Shuriken Award, which is the highest honor a blogger can receive. No, really, the shuriken awards are safely stowed on top of the tallest temple in the Universe. You can't even get there without a spaceship. These awards are Cheech & Chong high.
But I would like to explicitly mention and award the following kick-ass bloggers:
This girl deserves the Golden Shiruken because she's
Black Hockey Jesus:
Can you give this man enough kudos? No, the ego only consumes them like a black hole. Hmmm... Black Hole Jesus. That would rule. "I am the savior of your soul.... and I will eat it, ssssssssllllllluuuuuuurrrrrrpppppppp!" Ok, I don't know where that came from. That was trippy. I think I just channeled some BHJ... But seriously! This guy is the reason I started this blog. I figured if Black Hockey Jesus can use his parenting as an excuse to live out his dream of being a writer, SDN can do the same, right? Hell yes, bitches. Oh, and he's a fucking hilarious, insightful literary master. dig it.
If you are reading this, you probably already read the Newborn Identity. If not, go read it. This guy is a real awesome dad. He's got my respect. He's also funny and clever like a rabid badger who cares.
Jenny the Bloggess:
What is this SDN? These bloggers are all famous. The Bloggess is the freaking Bloggess! WTF? Do you think we live in a cave? Or is this just a sly but not so subtle ruse to try to get the Bloggess of all people to put an SDN badge on her site? SDN, you should be ashamed of yourself.
You're right... But I love her.... not in a creepy way... really.
This guy is the real thing. Funny, creative, genius. And he posts a lot of nice photos that are worthy of viewing.
Well, that's all for now. There are just too many badasses out there to blag on about. So, if I mentioned you in this post, choose your poison below to display your badassery (and to show you care):
