Minions, Report!

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Thank you all for coming to the evil Wrecky henchpersons meeting. There's only one item of business today, so I'll be brief in briefing you with the brief:

Cake Wrecks is up for Funniest Blog at the '09 BlogLuxe Awards.

I'd be super psyched to win it.

Like, super super psyched.

You can vote once a day now through July 6th, simply by typing in your e-mail address.

That is all. Dismissed!

(Oh, and since there are about a billion blogs on the list, you might have a hard time finding Cake Wrecks. I'd advise using the "find" tool on your web browser.)

I'd vote for you...but you aren't super super super excited! ;)

I kid. I kid.

Brooke said...

I want one of those "I voted today." stickers to wear around.

emily said...

You're also in the Eye Candy category.

marineof2 said...

Voted! I love your blog! ANd for those of you hunting for it....look under Best Eye Candy Blog to vote!

Chris said...

You're also up for Eye Candy. :)

Ya'll need to get out there and vote! Cake wrecks is trailing the leader by almost a 1000 points!!! And the third place person is only 300 points behind....anyone else is left in the dust.....

Voix said...

Your fans are at your beck and call, oh great one.

Anonymous said...

I will vote if everyone that sent you pics get to go to the awards too - afterall they are big contributers to the blog.

[y'all would need half the site :)]

Good luck.

Anna Kauz said...

Going to vote now!!

I really like this site. It's entertaining and unique. But I don't think it's the funniest one out there. It's one of many that I read in a day..but not the first one I would turn to for humor.

Agatha said...

Voted. It would be so much easier to find you if they put it in alphabetical order!

The Fam said...

Will be voting twice per day, one for each blog.
Hope you win! Then we all get a CCC right?

The Happy Medic said...

Click on best eye candy, click in the field, then run your search for "cake" they are about half way down. DONE!

HM

Fluffy Cow said...

Done.

Katie said...

I voted. Hope you win!

Crystal said...

Just voted, Cake Wrecks is at 1649 votes!

Lisa said...

I've always wanted to be a minion.

shadow said...

Done, and done, O Cakey One!

Em said...

But NotAlwaysCharming, do you kid,kid, kid?

Going off to vote.

WV: mizines: the zines of minions everywhere.

Ady said...

Last count, votes were 1800++ Good luck, and I'll keep voting for you! :)

Sarah Fowler said...

I voted for you, but I have to be honest... I think The Bloggess is just as funny so I'm going to have to switch off voting for her too. :-)

CountessLaurie said...

Vote number 2030 :-) Good luck!

2045 at 8.50pm CT! :)

I went to vote for you
underneat that
Yours was the best one there!

Anonymous said...

There is a button to post..Im trying to figure this out..sorry.

Fedelm said...

Done. It's nice being a minion:)

Kate said...

Can you possibly repost this every day, so that my reader constantly picks it up and I can remember to keep going back to revote for you? Otherwise, I will forget. I voted today, but it would be nice to have a reminder of some sort :-)

Anonymous said...

I tried to vote again with a different email address. Apparently you need to wait at least 30 minutes to do this (or maybe reset the cookies?).

Anonymous said...

Mommy Wants Vodka is ahead by 2,000 votes. Come on, we can do this!!

redgirl said...

VO-TED!!

Meagan said...

OMM NOMM NOMM CAKEWRECKS FTW!!

Word verification:
Prominis - the prominis of votes for cakewrecks was astounding.

Em said...

Careful everyone (who are planning on voting)... Cakewrecks is up for +2+, one funniest and one best eye candy. If you only vote for one and not the other, it means it won't add up right for Cakewrecks.

Which... ah.. is probably me stating the obvious, but well... okay.

canngil said...

so glad you changed the cover!!
good luck with your new book!
going on a book tour? I have a great library who would love you~!

TBC said...

Done!!

Kerry Shillingford said...

You're a lucky lucky lady that I have three email addresses that I shall be voting with, TRIPLE THE POINTS, HELLZ YEAH!
ahem...
good luck old chap!

Serena said...

2921 for Funniest, but only 202 for Eye Candy at 5:22a.m. EST.

Tammy Jo said...

Uh oh, Mommy wants Vodka is in the lead....lets kick it up a notch here...

The musishian said...

Minions...but there's more than ten of us!

Regardless, I've voted. Thanks for the "find" tip.

Mary said...

well, I voted, unfortunately it was the wrong vote button I pushed, so I'll vote again tomorrow, sorry! stupid buttons not being clear where they go!

Kelly said...

When you win, will we get cake? Your minions do so love cake!

Anna said...

I'd vote :)

and hmmmm have you seen this? it's hard to believe they are meant to be eaten...

Auntie Meme said...

Within the funniest category, I don't know whether my vote went for this blog or the one on top of it. In Firefox, I can't tell where the real CakeWrecks voting button is. Eeek!

Auntie Meme said...

Well, fudge, I did it wrong today. Will make up for it, though. *wink*

Cottagecheap said...

OKAY! WHY.....are we not winning? Come on ppl...get votin'. Make your spouses and kids vote. -SIGH- IF CW doesn't win I am gonna have to eat a CCC (Patooey)

Anonymous said...

Come ON Wreckies . . . "Girl About Town" is kicking butt -- VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!!!!

grimperspective said...

I nominated you for best guily pleasure, cause everyone gives me crap for reading cakewrecks, so I now have to hide in a broom closet with my laptop to indulge. Though, I feel no guilt, I just get tired of their harping. Oh, and of course I voted for ya for funniest.

Ryan and Shannon said...

Done! Happy to vote for such an awesome blog.

Ellie Fitzgerald said...

I voted for you :)

But we need more votes, the leader is quite far ahead!

Ellie - ranting reviews

jentee said...

i tried to vote but it said "illegal or automated vote detected!"

i didn't do anything wrong! hmph!

Cindy said...

You got mine, you crack me up daily here in my office!

:::b r a n d i::: said...

UGH. Inappropriately used quotation marks are one of my biggest pet peeves!!

Labyrinth Gal said...

OMG, Auntie Meme! I'm on Firefox & now I'm questioning whether I voted correctly or for some other blog. Yikes!

That Anon. comment is v. funny: "Let me explain logically why you're not as funny as The Bloggess." Sheesh.

GOOD LUCK! :-) Minion Hali

WolfMistress09 said...

Lol. Wow, you are smoking them! I only had to find the one with the most votes. You have over 3,000 while most have 9,10, maybe 20 >.< WTG!

Uark2003 said...

I voted too! But I'm scared!!! What the heck are the following blogs doing ahead of you in votes!?

Mommy Wants Vodka
Girl About Town

ARG! We need to get our wreckiness together and take over the world!

Heather said...

Voted for both.

Anonymous said...

Never posted before, so hello! I am gonna vote for you and hope you win. I went to your facebook page and didn't see the Call to Vote. If you haven't done so already, please put the announcement of FB too.

Bridget said...

I'll vote for you if you vote for me. :) My blog is up in the Tastiest category (Bake at 350). Nothing like a little bribery in the morning. ;)

cakewreck fiend said...

I couldn't cast my vote in good conscience without first doing my homework, so I checked out the other leading contenders--hoping for a laugh, if nothing else--and ptooey! Not even a snicker. Nothing compares to you, Jen.

Mrs. B said...

4000+ votes. And it's only 8am on the West Coast.

Bonnie said...

aaahhhh!!! In the funniest blog category the leader has over 5000 votes...we are just over 4000....get out there and vote fellow minions...

We are also in the Eye Candy category...you can vote in both places!!! GO GO GO!!!!

~Minion Bonnie B

Morgan said...

your minions have indeed reported. last time i checked, you were about 4,000 votes ahead.

Phoenix said...

Hi, someone has probably already mentioned it, but I found Cake Wrecks in the Eye Candy blog catagory as well.

Voted in both :)

eilbeback said...

Whooo-hoooo! I voted for you in both categories. You make me laugh every single day, not just once in a while. (I checked out a couple of the other blogs, and ho-hummm!)
Go, Jen!

Our Little Inspirations said...

You got my vote! This is one of the most original and FUNNIEST reads around! I LOVE what you do! The photos are funny to begin with, but the commentary is downright HILARIOUS!

Alright, I did some calculating and list making (because that's what I do) and here's the deal so far...At time of voting in the Funniest category, there are only 6 blogs in the thousands. CakeWrecks is in second with 4855, being beaten only by Girl About Town (damn her!) who's at 5871. Knowing the dedication of wreckporters out there, I think we can do this for Jenn.

dessertschick said...

Uh oh, the "bye, bye, pie!" blog appears to be catching up with 3822 votes to your 4904...

Cake Wrecks clearly gets the vote if for no other reason than you're improving Korean kids' English grammar.

Bekah said...

4907 and counting!

Heidi 'n' Jeff said...

So, do you watch Venture Brothers? You should if you don't.

Leanne said...

Done, hopefully.

It is less than clear which "VOTE!" tab to select---the one on top or below the Cakewrecks name.

Pretty sure I got it right but it's only 1pm on the west coast and I haven't had enough caffeine yet.

*Meg Larsen* said...

I nominated you last week for the "Best Eye Candy" blog so it's good to see you showing up there, though there's not as much love. Only 300 something votes, so we better get cracking!

Julie said...

I voted! You make me laugh everytime I visit :)

Brittany said...

It's almost unfair for you to be up for these awards... case in point, i just went to vote and saw this as your tally
Cake Wrecks
5600 votes

come on?? the second place person has 933... really, kids?? no contest ;-)

Brittany said...

oh i'm dumb... but you're still winning, mommy wants vodka has 4951 votes at 9:36pm and you have 5600 votes

Brittany said...

oh no TASTIEST blog you only have 22 votes!!! come on wreckporters

Ady said...

Woohoo, votes were 5000++ at last count! First place at the moment! But we have to keep voting, because the 2nd place is nearing to 5000 now. Go! Go! Go!

Btw, votes for Cake Wrecks for the Best Eye Candy category is rather.. abysmal. I thought this category rather suits Cake Wrecks. We should vote for this category too. We can vote for multiple categories on the same day using the same e-mail address.

Anyhoo, will keep on voting (as long as I remember). Haha!

Ady said...

Ops, my bad. We're actually second as Girl About Town has 6800 votes... Wow, that's quite amazing actually. But we can do better.. I hope. Get cracking people! Haha..

Anonymous said...

second place!! wow, and a long way ahead of third... Gratz so far... now lets go get that Girl around town!

Anonymous said...

6087 !!! You're way ahead !!!

Good luck !! Thanks for a daily laugh :)

Ellen said...

Looks like points range from 6241 to 1... You're 6241. I didin't see anyone else with 1000 or more. I reckon you're safe.

roballen said...

I'll gladly vote for you: this blog is the only one I've found that makes me laugh out loud (and occasionally wet my pants). (I'll deny that, but it has happened.) Your comments are what make it so very precious. Thanks for the hilarity.

Jena said...

Wow, you're up for three categories! Unfortunately, I don't know if I'd call this blog particularly tasty. I mean, bad punctuation and babies riding carrots aren't particularly appetizing...

A-not-Ansel said...

"Girl About Town" still in the lead, and by 1000 votes. Jeez....

Barb said...

Jen, you're nominated in 3 categories, come one, let's get that posted on the main page and get everyone going - I want to see a Blog Hat Trick victory, here!

(Look, I'm Canadian, it's all about hockey, okay?)

A-not-Ansel said...

Please stress to your (more careless) readers (like me) that you may vote once a day, every day (!) for the blogue of your choice. And it's OK if it's the same one every day. It took me four days to figure this out (despite the fact that you told us).

Anonymous said...

Just did my daily vote and noticed that they found a bunch of spam/illegal votes and Girl About Town, previously CakeWrecks' only real competiter, is now down to 1260 votes. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA World Wrecky domination is ours!!! I mean...Jen's!!!!!

Jennifer said...

I just voted for the 2nd time and you have nearly 7,000 votes. No one else has even close to 1,000. I suspect the blogs with 1-4 votes must have been nominating themselves!

A-not-Ansel said...

Blogluxe's vote cleanup seems to have sent your only erstwhile competitor packing. Too soon for contragulations, but things are looking good.

Becky said...

I voted! Aren't you proud? You've got 3 times the votes of the next closest competitor. Sweet!

JennyKitten76 said...

Looks like Cake Wrecks is in the lead 3-to-1 today :)

Vikki from OZ said...

Looks like you've got this one in the bag! Its a landslide win! Well done!

Cupcakes Lady said...

Many devoted followers....of which im one now. ;) xx
