If you know me, you may know that I am typically a fan of the best of things.
Best wife. (Mine)
Best daughter. (Mine again, sorry guys).
Best basketball player (MJ, no discussion)
Best hour long drama (The Sopranos)
Best Sitcom ever….
Like you had to ask.
The Office. Duh.
I also like listening to podcasts about things I love.
In this case, I mean Somehow I Manage, a podcast covering every episode of The Office.
It’s part of the Incomparable Network, so, from the name, seemingly also a “Best” I like.
Well, I’ve been enjoying the show from the beginning and loving it. And one neat thing they do is award their own Dundie award to a listener for something neat and Office-related; and it’s cool to hear who won each week, and what they named the award each week.
Well, a few weeks ago, this happened.
This morning, my lovely daughter kept me up from 2:30 to 3 am.
But I still got up at 6 am and hit the gym.
Feeling great and being productive right now, thanks in no small part to some @Starbucks in my system and some @Tall_Beets in my ears.
How’s everybody doing this #monday?

I didn’t think too much of it, honestly. Until yesterday, when I was driving to work, and listening to podcasts as usual, and heard THIS:
Needless to say, I immediately screamed “I WON A FREAKIN’ DUNDIE!!!” and other related phrases like, “IS THIS REAL LIFE?”, etc.
Then I settled down and rewound it again to actually listen to it all properly.
I knew immediately I would have to record an acceptance speech.
So I did. And before I could post it, my Dundie was made official by the podcast Twitter account.
*Last week’s* Dundie, The Astrid Award, goes to Drew Allen (@drewplaysdrums) for letting us help him remain productive despite being woken up very early by his daughter.
Get on up here and accept your Dundie! pic.twitter.com/EYsDT0d05Z

To which I immediately replied with my acceptance speech.

And then I promptly joined the Incomparable network (which I had been considering for a while anyway).
Am I a total dork to be this excited about a virtual Dundie award I won from a podcast about my all time favorite show?
