Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits award

What is this?
Me in a pinstripe suit?

I got the Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits award from vvB32 and decided to dress up for the occasion.

Thanks vvB! I feel strange indeed.

What is it about:

Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits award

This award is based on the release of Cate Gardner's short story collection, Strange Men in Pinstriped Suits. The book is available for pre-order and at a discount of $1.99 off of the cover price. To help celebrate this release, Cate and Strange Publications have a contest with two prize packages to choose from.

The 'Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits' award is given to only the strangest of folk, and as the recipient of such you are deemed very strange indeed.


Now you must go forth and celebrate the strangeness of friends (and strangers - strangers are always allowed) by nominating blogs run by strange folk. *Beware, some people don't like you to refer to them as strange…Try to avoid them if possible.

Some rules:

1. Add the logo of the award to your blog post.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you (don't mess with strange people).
3. Nominate seven other blogs telling us why you think the recipient is strange enough to deserve the award.
4. Leave a message for those nominated on their blogs.
5. And, if you email catephoenix(at)gmail(dot)com and tell her you've received the award for your strangeness, she'll enter you in the biggest kick-ass Strange Men competition ever. Details over at (click on the award link on the home page)

Hmmm..... 7 strange friends. Do I have 7 strange friends?

Let's see:
- Enbrethiliel of Shredded Cheddar (Naming your blog Shredded Cheddar is a cool kind of strange I think!)
- Beanie Mouse (He doesn't even have to dress to look like he wears a pinstripe suit)
- Hammie (Does being a hamster or having big teeth make you a strange man?)
- Demented Wench (When she hears I gave her this Award she'll get creative with a wooden spoon, I think that qualifies her as strange.)
- Gini Koch (She writes about aliens!)
- Eve from Through Eve's Looking-Glass (She's on a bit of a blog vacation, but she's beautifully strange no matter what)
- Leaving number 7 open as you never know when you need a legitimate reason to call someone strange.

ps: those awarded are free to ignore their strangeness and/or the award

Piiiiiiiiiig!!! I've got a wooden spoon with your name on it. ;)

Gini Koch said...

Thank you for this honor, oh Pig who is my most favored pig above all others. Will endeavor to actually keep it going and all that. (For which we should all immediately thank Team Gini much more than me...)

Book sounds awesome, hope I win! :-D

Demented Wench said...

Although, you do look incredibly handsome in your pinstripe suit. :)

Eve Noir said...

Oooo thank you SOOOO very much for nominating me for this STRANGE award. Nobody has ever called me beautifully strange before, awww I love that! ^_^ Congrats to the other STRANGE blog authors also. It's good to be a bit strange, isn't it?!? OH and the book looks really cool! Thanks again!

I'm glad to hear most of you like being awarded and I'll take my wooden spoon punishment bravely as I know I was forwarned.
