    Acceptance speech: Thank you, thank you so very much! I’d like to thank Latter-day Main Street, my readers, and all the kick-ass people who voted for me! (This is where I choke up a little.) And I know with every fiber of my being that my blog is true, and my Brodie award is true!

    Seriously though. This is an honor. Thank you.
