We Have A Winner!!! 03/01/10
I'd like to sincerely thank the academy and our esteemed partners and friends present here tonight. I'd also like to thank Qdoba for sponsoring today's nacho bar lunch *waves to delivery man in the back of the room* and for bringing me, as this evening's honoree *bats eyelashes coyly* a pint of tortilla soup. I love that sh*t!

I am thrilled to be this year's recipient of the Most Outstanding Bed Head - Natural. I don't use any kind of styling product at all. This straight-standing mop is a product of a fine balance of tossing and turning. I feel blessed to have such bed head luck. I realize that others spend long hours and many dollars in a salon to get just this look *points vanna-style towards head.*

So thank you once again. I truly am thrilled to receive this award.
Winner:TMC @ Return to Rural (@returntorural)
Reason: If I ever win anything, I totally want to celebrate with a nacho bar.

...and the winner of the award for best table setting is...Wilbur Grappel!

Why, thank you! I cannot believe this honour! And, by the way, I must compliment the caterers on their own table settings--very stylish. The centrepieces are divine.

First of all, I must thank my mother, who always said that the sign of a good host is reflected in his silverware. I must also thank Wedgwood, without whom nothing, absolutely nothing I do would be possible. I just cannot imagine doing 100 place settings for a wedding without your Night and Day platters.

I also want to thank my team, Boris and Manuel, who are so skilled at folding napkins and polishing the silver. You are beautiful, swanlike beauties! And all the folks at Country Candles in Baltimore who always keep me in supply of vanilla whites--I think, Margie, another box needs to be sent tomorrow, by the way.

Finally, before they drag me off, Martha Stewart. When I can't imagine, you are my very good thing.

Thank you so much darlings!! Good night!

I've dreamt of this so many times.
Guess my star just climbs and climbs!
I look in your eyes,
And say, "Thanks for this prize
For The Best Writer of the Worst Rhymes!"

I am pleased and honored to accept this award for Most Skilled Usage of Diapers, All Age Divisions. I would like to thank the little people for teaching me all I needed to know. James, thanks to your mother I am a master at the cloth diaper and have the scars on my fingers to prove that not once were you poked in the process. Douglas, you taught me the trick of the 30 second standing diaper change. Kate, it was with your princess pull-ups that I mastered the most difficult one legged pull up change. And to my class of students, it was a group effort that prepared me for the speed round in which I changed ten diapers in under ten minutes. I have mastered the wrap the diaper in tape trick, the double diaper trick, and the cover the diaper in a onesie and backwards pants trick to keep out roaming hands all because of you. There is nothing I could not diaper. I thank you all, without you I could have never achieved this honor!!
