Some scholarships & departmental awards at KU--and graduation with highest distinction. I put myself through school, so that meant a lot to me.

Ticket stubs; I've won many. Paul Thomas Anderson remains phenomenal, pushing the backdrop facade which dominates many films properly into the background, revealing the interpersonal and the intimate. Yes, there will be blood, and pudding, and tears.

At my 20th High School Reunion I got the award for "Grayest Hair". It was a bottle of Grecian Formula. The REALLY sad part is that I actually tried using it...and my hair turned a funny shade of green. But, hey, at least I have hair!

To win this award, you must be lean, mean and discreet. Not one oz. of fat, not a blockhead. Ladies and Gentlemen, Member of Seal Team 6 Award winner...

Most of my big awards have been self presented. However, the award I won last year for Lawrence Kansas Neighbor of the year, just stood out over all the rest. It was based on a post I put on a local article right here on LJW. I threw a big party and invited myself and my imaginary dog clifford. it was a great celebration for such great work.

The biggest reward ever posted on me was $50,000 dead or alive. Turned myself in before anyone could collect.

Was awarded a 10 or more 'thumbs up' count on two separate LJWorld comments.

Before that it was Phi Theta Kappa & The President's List for Academic Achievement at JCCC & before that it was an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army.
