Today, I’m embarking on a very different quest.  Today, I’m channeling all the Sparky goodness I can muster and I’m venturing forth to win a prize.  I understand that some of you (I’m looking at you, Le Clown) will not understand what is going on here, and I’m okay with that, but as it is my role to entertain, how about you read this instead.  Or, if that’s not your thing, some have enjoyed this post (which was Freshly Pressed if you haven’t been paying attention) and others have enjoyed this page (which should take you less than five seconds to read).  I wouldn’t want to leave you with nothing.

Still here?  Okay.  Moving on…

Oh!  And before we get back to me WINNING, I want to take a moment to do a quick shout out for Alice.  Have you met Alice?  She lives in a place called Wonderland.  Everything she writes turns to fifty shades of perfection.  Often, I can’t keep myself from laughing for the rest of the day after reading one of her posts.  I’ve been asked to leave work before.  Not that I’m complaining.  Her posts are more important than work.  Her writing could sustain me.  It’s.  That.  Good.

She’s the best.

Well, except for me of course.  I truly am the best and I’m on a quest to prove it, a quest for all the winning.  The quest for the ultimate prize!

Part of this quest involves recognizing others for their brilliance.  So, the following seven eight (updated to include Guap) bloggers are hereby declared ALL THAT IS AWESOMESAUCE.  They don’t have a choice in the matter, they have to accept the award, display it on their blogs, answer the following seven questions, and then nominate 49 other bloggers to receive the award.  (7 x 7 = 49 – the math makes sense to me)  (The math no longer makes since because I added in an eight recipient, but that’s okay because it never really made sense to begin with.)

ATIA Award

Award recipients:
Alice – because she, as already covered, is fifty shades of perfection
Le Clown – because he tries hard and he means well
Miss Four Eyes – because she has four eyes, that’s two extra ones to help her kick butt
Rara – because she’s both a dinosaur and a dragon
Grayson Queen – because he puts up with all of Rara’s shenanigans
Revis – because he is the first knight of the matticus kingdom
Twindaddy – because he is awesome and stuph


Guap – because he asked for it, personally, pleadingly, punctually

Questions to be answered:
How do you define your awesomesauceness?
Are there some who call you “Tim?”
What is your favorite movie and why (please answer in the form of 12 page essay)?
Why doesn’t Le Clown visit the matticus kingdom very often?
Does Baby C ever wonder why there is no Baby D (like Baby A and Baby B have each other)?
How have your movements been recently?
How many projects can Queen Creative juggle at any given time?

There!  Wasn’t that fun.  And with that, my quest is almost complete.  Plus, I know you all love getting awards so I can’t wait to see how you answer the questions and who you pass the award to.

Just think, soon the blogosphere will be overrun with jars of awesomesauce.  When that happens the kngdom will have taken over completely.  I, in all my jester glory, will be the ruler of all things blog!  And that is my prize.  That is me winning.  It is inevitable.  It has already been set in motion and cannot be stopped.

    • Hmm! I feel like I should have added DOAT to the list of recipients – because he has his hands in everything… but then I’d have to come up with an 8th question, and then everyone would have to pass the award on to 64 people and that seems ridiculous – best to just stick with the 49 and remember you for the next time I’m passing around the jar of awesomesauce.

  1. Good grief! Look at your awards shelf!! You have been busy!

    I am one of those who hasn’t a clue what this is about, but I thought the awesomesauce jar was awesomesauce. And so are you, so good luck you on your quest.

    • Thanks! But, no luck is needed. By passing around the jar of awesomesauce of have assured myself of victory!
      (if you want to know what is going on, click on the “Alice” link and her post should explain it).

  2. DJ,
    Twindaddy is a tool and is most certainly not awesome. Or stuph. He’s a Grade A imbecile and is not worthy of any awards, lest they be Darwin Awards.

    I expect this post to be corrected and the award to go to an appropriate blogger. Preferably one who doesn’t suck.

    • BLC,
      While I considered gifting you with this award, this jar of awesomesauce, in my infallible wisdom I decided that you are a tool and unworthy of anything. The fact that Twindaddy has put up with you for as long as he has is just further testament to his awesomesauceness. Therefore, you can take your comments and assessments of TD and be on your way. No one is listening to you anymore. You are NOT the life coach we are looking for.

      • Jester (how fitting),
        Twindaddy, if he were as great as you contend, would be rid of me by now if he were really the “awesomesauce” you speak of, whatever the hell awesomesauce is. Oh, and if your wisdom were truly infallible, you’d be more than a mere jester, no?
        Blunt Life Coach

      • BLC,
        Ah, but you miss the point entirely. I choose to be the Jester and laugh at this ridiculous world and this ridiculous life. I choose to go through things with an upbeat attitude, and being the Jester allows me certain freedoms from other responsibilities I might have to face otherwise. Therefore proving my wisdom is infallible.
        Also, I question your status as a Life Coach if you can’t even recognize the value in keeping the parts of ourselves we aren’t happy about around to remind us of our mistakes and help shape us into the people we want to be. I think it is time for you to look for a new line of work.

      • DJ,
        Spoken like a true, witless clown. Who CHOOSES to be a jester? Really. A new line of work is a good idea, though. Perhaps you could be a rodeo clown?
        Blunt Life Coach

      • BLC,
        If you truly think that being a rodeo clown is a step up from being the jester in the matticus kingdom than that is further evidence that you have no business being a life coach. However, I will not dispute that your bluntness and the insight it often affords you are valuable tools in some industries. Perhaps you might enjoy a career in banking?

  3. I will await with bated breath on all those you nominated because, yes they do have awesomesauce. And I too have wondered why Le Clown rarely visits my blog. ;-(
    And rara is the bestest!

    • I’m tempted to say “thank you,” but that wouldn’t fit in with Sparky’s ways at all. So, instead I say, “I know.”
      And, yes, they should make real awesomesauce… but, since it would have to be made out of me, can we please wait until I’m dead for that to happen?

  4. *headdesk*

    Despite the fantastic(sauce) company you’ve put me in, the reign of awesomesauce (shut up, spellcheck) has ended, now that it’s been used in a car commercial.

    Think of it as Fran Dreshcer using fo’ shizzle in an Old Navy commercial.
    That was the last time we heard fo’ shizzle.

    God speed, awesomesauce.
