Big Dave: Mayor of Losertown

    Soooooo, I almost didn't write a post for you today, Company.  Yesterday, after I failed once again to win the Daihatsu Motors Presents the Fourth Annual Big Dave and Company Xerox Blog of the Year Award Brought to You by Taco Bell I slipped deeper into the depths of despair and self loathing.  I am not exactly sure what I have to do in order to win the damn award, but four people have figured out what they are supposed to do.  Four different bloggers have figured out the trick.  I have never, EVER seen a contest in which the winner could be from the company that is putting the contest on.  That NEVER happens, yet I left that particular rule out for a reason.  That reason is, of course, because I want to win my own award more than anything in the history of ever.
     But I didn't win it, and now I am not sure how I ever could.  I am suffering an epidemic of self-doubt.  Scratch that, it is a pandemic of self-doubt.  Add to this latest loss the fact that I had one of my best posts in the history of posts the other day about how I hate the container that biscuits come in, but Blogger had a misfire and it just sort of went away.  Which is fine, shit happens, but then it was gone forever and ever.  And that makes me a little sad.  Especially because I was counting on this award to buoy my spirits and make feel whole again.  I was also going to award myself a substantial cash prize if I won, which would have been sweet as well.
     So I can't win my award, I am not a Blog of Note and I am starting to think that I never will be, and I am just not sure what to do about myself.  I might never write a post again.  HA!  You'd like that, wouldn't you?  Well that is not going to happen.  I am going to get back on the horse starting tomorrow.  I can't win my own award - or any award for that matter - if I don't write some stuff.  Right?  Or should I say write?
