When I wrote yesterday's post, I was rather sleepy from all the celebrating I'd been doing, and stupidly forgot to say thanks to all the people who have assisted me with this blog, or contributed to it, or were especially encouraging. I am very grateful to this passel of positive people:
Tim and Donna Lucas
T. J. Thorne
Everyone of them is a beautiful person inside (some even outside!) and I blow air kisses to all of them.
You're probably thinking, Is that all they're gonna get, you cheap bastard? No, no. I have something much more substantial to bestow on my benefactors. Every one them gets this:
It's "The Macabre Masque of Distinguished Service", a medal previously used to honor member service to the internet forum Universal Monster Army. Being a moderator there, I've got a ton of 'em layin' around-- I might as well use 'em. So in addition to my thanks and this medal, all the people above who aren't already in the UMA become honorary members! Congratulations!
These medals not only will look great on a lapel or pinned to one's face (that's how I like to wear mine when I pretend I've done something good for the UMA), they're also an inexpensive high! Being made in China from cheap plastic, the fumes are overpowering and cause mild euphoria and weak hallucinations. What fun!
Post script: Oops! I forgot that the FTC sent me a letter ordering me not to distribute these medals. Sorry about that! Well, enjoy the photo of the thing, my friends!
