2009 Mental Ninja Awards

Ces's 2009 Mental Ninja Awards
I am convinced I am the only conservative and registered Republican visitor of the Darling Renee. That makes me feel very special, which now means that quite possibly I am presenting this award to some liberals. What can I say? I have high ideals and I try to overlook the shortcomings of these beloved friends of mine for they are brainiacs and mental ninjas, artistic and creative minds and word warriors.

Baino (thank goodness she can't vote in the US)

Renee (double thank goodness, tripple thank goodness, quadruple thank goodness she can't vote in the US!!! La-la-la-la-la!)

Bjornik (you're a genius, so can do anything you want dear)

Bella Sinclair (what can I say, love is blind)

Tessa (I am keeping my fingers crossed. Someone who is a cross between Austen and Kipling can't be aligned with the party of Barney Frank! Oh God, please don't let it be)

Manon (if you are, a beautiful woman always gets away with anything)

Linda Cardina (if you are dear, I'll just think of it as a bad Gemini trait)

Valerie Walsh (you can do anything you want Val)

Karin (So intense and I love your journals, be who you are Karin)

Diana Evans (you are my only hope)
Aimee (she's perfect to me!)

Dusik (I hope your beautiful fairies are not fairies)

BT (Who says gardening is not a mental exercise?)

Kaili (My dearest kapatid - be perfect and special, be not like the rest)

Pam (I am counting on you)

Lavender (I have hope yet)

Chris (I have no doubt, but I like her anyway and she is sooo much fun)

Bimbimbie (I like her very much, she can be anything she wants)

Arija (if you are, I may convert just to be like you!)
JoyEliz (Best news today!)
Update 5/25/2009. I am giving this award to Sarah who I've just gotten to know recently. I love her art and her diverse skill plus she gets called by parents who need help disciplining their children, so does it really matter whether she is liberal or conservative?
6/4/2009. Deborah, Midlife Poet!!! - There's hope yet!.

NOT! Maybe I should advertise my blog as a conservative blog to attract my own kind. or maybe the conservatives are minding the stores. So what does that make me?
Award design inspired by my very own Mental Ninja Em!


Chris said...

Oh, Thank you, Ces!!
You're right... I AM a mental ninja!

(takes one to know one!)

Baino said...

Haha! You are hilarious girl. Hey, we rise above politics! Not that we can do much to change them anyway. Rather fancy myself as a Ninja, mental or otherwise!
Heeeeeee-Yah! *slinks silently into the night*

Diana Evans said...

oh wow Ces!!! what a wonderful thing to be called!!! a Mental Ninja!!! this is the coolest thing ever.....

I think you are the head of all the Mental Ninjas...and Chris is right.....it takes one to know one....hehehehe

I am so grateful to know you and so happy you pop by!!!

When we were kids ...my brother and I would act out Ninja Movies in our forest...we had ninja stars and all kinds of fun stuff...it was a riot and we still laugh today...especially the day our neighbor found my brother in his Ninja outfit climbing a tree....what a great memory!!!!

Manon Doyle said...

Thank you Miss Ces for my Mental Ninja award! I'm so very honored! I'm so lucky to be in such fine company! Yes... I am a liberal but I love my conservative friends.... most of them anyway...lol!

Dusik said...

Wow!!!!! Thank you Ces! I am soooo excited!!!! (Btw I can't vote in the us either!!! And no LOL they are definitely not fairies :)))

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

Wooo! Thanks Ces! Ive always known I was a mental ninja, now I can officially wear the title. Thanx for the advice too, I am learning! What can I say? Im young and still finding out who I am!

Bella Sinclair said...


OMG, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! Em surely is a mental ninja, daughter of the MASTER ninja herself. I bow down to you, oh great one.

You will be happy to know, blind one, that my last two votes were rejected because...well, because I had to declare where and when I last voted and I couldn't remember. HA! Talk about mental!

Are you going to take back my badge?

Kung Fu Hustle is one of my FAVORITES!

Ces said...

I thought I am the only woman who loves Kung Fu Hustle. My first blog had Kung Fu Hustle clips and photos of the Landlady all over the place. I wiah I had her powers!

BT said...

Oh Ces, you are so funny. I love my award. I rather stand out as your gardening friend, so I think I am a mental ninja too. Or maybe I'm just mental!! Yeeeeee-ha! I was smiling away to Kung Fu Fighting. I used to dance to this with a good friend of mine at many a party. (Actually, my first husband's first wife). Thank you thank you.

Bella Sinclair said...

HAHAHAHA! The landlady is just AWESOME! Can you imagine?

Lizzy Frizzfrock said...

Ah well... Renee says you're an ok kiddo, so I'll let my yellow dog self continue to visit. Who knows, you may convert to the ways of the truly informed, hehehe. Pretty funny post for a Republican, I enjoyed it!

Ces said...

My favorite is the chase. I like the way she runs!

Ces said...

Why Lizzy, didn't you know? The Republicans invented humor? Haha!

Ces said...

You are welcome Chris and definitely you are aMental Ninja with a great sense of humor!

Oh I can see you as a ninja in your pajamas!

Oh wow Diana, I bet you fought for justice and the Canadian Way too? Did you have a chako too? I am glad to know you too Diana. You are a good and beautiful egg!

Ah Manon, life is not perfect and I have learned to adjust. Hahaha!

Dusik good for you because it will be a shame if they were. I love those beautiful tinies.

Kaili, go ahead! You look great in black!!! :)))))

That is a shame Bella. You should have declared yourself an illegal for surely your votes would have counted!

Oh BT You are a lovely mental with a verdant and fragrant touch.

Ha Lizzy, that depends on what type of information you refer. It may well be misinformation you know. Lots of them floating everywhere through teleprompters. Ooops! What telepropmter? We don't use no stinkini' teleprompters here. Hahah!

Congratulations everyone. I am glad you liked it. Had fun designing it with the Em.

aimee said...

oh you weren't kidding!! there really was such a thing as a mental ninja award. how funny! and from you, ces, i'm honored!

Ces said...

You're welcome Aimee!

Renee said...

Ces this is so fucking awesome.


I am laughing and laughing.

Some people I don't know but the ones I do. I am counting on them.

Ces anyways I don't think you and Rush have a lot in common. I think you are faking this republican bullshit to get our goats. You are so brilliant and I don't think brilliant and republican go together. I mean isn't that an oxymoron?

And Tessa, forget it she is liberal all the way.

Karin, well we can take that one to the bank -- liberal.

Bella, yeah in your dreams. Liberal.

Baino, with that mouth like mine, they would kick her out of the party while they went to church and then screwed the dog.

Bjornik, who I adore is a total liberal.

Once again, you are one of us, just admit it.

Manon is Canadian so right there she is liberal.

Diana is so beautiful she could be the republican ideal of blond and blue eyes, but she paints like a free spirit.

Kaili young and beautiful and a young mom, Ces don't you try to corrupt her.

Oh my God I so love this.

Ces you are so incredible and I seriously don't know what any of us would do without you.


p.s. Ces at least Obama is reading a teleprompter instead of pulling random nonsense out of his ass.

har har har.

Thank God I can't vote there.

By the way in Canada we have Harper who is a total shit like Bush was.

Love you. Renee xoxoxo

Bella Sinclair said...

Me neither. Don't know what any of us would do without you.


Ces said...

Oh dear lord, it's a good thing my love for you is not just some phony blog display. I will overlook your offensive statement and excuse it.

"Ces anyways I don't think you and Rush have a lot in common. I think you are faking this republican bullshit to get our goats. You are so brilliant and I don't think brilliant and republican go together. I mean isn't that an oxymoron?"

Never call me a fake, please.

I love you, still, and always will.

Ces said...

The world will be such a better place then Bella because everyone will be a Democrat and liberal right? :)

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

Yes, I do look great in black..(??) I dont know what we're talking about anymore!

Bella Sinclair said...

Baby, you're the yin to my yang.

Ces said...

Kaili dear, cover your ears, you beautiful, lovely person. Renee is corrupting you! Look the right way Kaili. You'll be safe there.

Anyway, RENEE DEAR! AND BELLA TOO!!! I am so happy and glad you accepted the reward because I really think you two are mental ninjas and I love you both anyway.

Renee said...

By the way I forgot to mention our darling Linda because I was hoping you weren't insinuating that she is a Re-----.

Linda is a liberal no doubt about it. As L = Linda Liberal.

I need Bella in on this one. Bella..... I will go get her.

Bella: Ces says she never ever faked an orgasm.

Now my question Ces is: Never? Even when you are like counting the dust in the cobwebs. And it is taking forever. And your like 'come off it already.' Thinking if I just squirm and add in a little 'oooo ooo awwww' it will hurry up. Never?

Bella, what are your thoughts.

Mind you Ces is a total spitfire.

And Ces the word fake was totally not about you. You are as real and as genuine and as magnificent as they come. oooo ooo awwww.

xoxo Renee

Love Renee xoxoxo

Bella Sinclair said...


Oh, yeah, oh yeah, that's it! More, more, more!!!

Ces said...

See? You just proved my point!

Kaili, don't let her corrupt you dear.

No really Renee, I don't know how to say this to you. I suppose I am a great disappointment to you because you really are liberal and you love that stinking B.O.

I am not going to use my blog as a pltform to advance my political views because I just want this to be an art blog and a blog for self expression. If it so offends you that I am conservative, then I don't know what else to say. I don't have any intention of influencing you because most certainly I have acknowledged that you are a mental ninja. I have the utmost respect for you but I am sorry I will disappoint you - I am conservative. I believe in conservative values.

Ces said...

and what are you going to do if Linda is not a L? Hmn

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

Im being corrupted! All I wanted to do was innocently share my art with other art lovers, and Im find myself in the middle of a sordid conversation on politics and orgasms! Shame on you all! :P Anyway you're out of league ladies, I'll leave you all to it! Ta ta! xx

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

**I meant Im out of you're league...so I'm leaving you all to it.. **silly keyboard that doesnt type!

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

I mean youre out of my league...duh! Im going to be quiet now

Ces said...

See, that just proved me right.

Renee said...

ha hahar har har

You are sensational.

I laughed so hard I was hitting my desk at the stinking B.O.

You are the best Ces.

Now about the faking it. We are twins, because in reality I would not fake it either. I would be 'no, i'm not doing it, forget it, not now, or I'm done, now you be done or else it is done.'

Love you, you Mental Ninja.

Now the question is for my love Bella, what was that about more, more, give it to me baby, kind of thing going on.

Okay. I need to knock myself out.

Tomorrow is Nathan's birthday so we will celebrate tomorrow.

And for the tutu. I am looking for one of those for Josephine's 2nd birthday on June 1st (yours June 2nd). What do you think of either a blue one or a black one. I think it would be cute with a little tee-shirt.

Love Renee xoxoxo

Ces said...

Don't get flusterred dear. I won't let renee corrupt you.

Renee said...

Okay, I love my Ninja award, I love your little face like a pixie on your banner, I love your insight, I love your honesty, and I love that you love Bella like I do.

Good night and God bless you.


Ces said...

Goodnight Renee, you are welcome.

Renee said...

Oh that little tiny face like Josephines. I could just kiss it all up.

Of course I didn't smoke. You are so funny.

I mean I smoked when I was about 13. But I didn't just smoke after my orgasm with you and Bella.

Love Renee xoxo

Renee said...

Ces is Em your daughter? She is a beautiful Ninja indeed.


How is the guitar going.

Ces said...

You are too much!

Bella Sinclair said...

Keep in mind, that was a fake cig to go with her fake O.

Ces said...

You two, I thank you so much. I was not feeling well this evening and Bella you tried your best to cheer me up and then Renee came along with her liberal democrat nonesense schpiel so I feel so much better. Thank you guys. I love you both very much.

Renee said...

Ces what goes around comes around and how many times you have made me feel good when I felt like shit, well dear friend. I can't even count.

Karma baby.

If we, as in Bella, you and me were in a room and my sisters joined us. Oh my God it would be off the hook.

Love you. Renee xoxox

Bella Sinclair said...

*Tsup* *Tsup* to both of you.

Ces said...

Bella, The Kissing Mental Ninja - PRICELESS!!!

Björnik said...


Tita Ces, this is very funny because the term ninja is very appropriate to my current condition. Now you see me, now you don't! And thank you for this very prestigous award. Of course it means a lot to me coming from my reputable tita sensei.

Can you teach me how to throw shurikens the right way?:)

Ces said...

I shall dearest Bjornik but when I am awake and alert, lest we end up losing our eyeballs if I accidentally throw that shurchickens, whatever, and they end up pecking our eyes.

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

Ces, No offence taken at all! You girls are crazy but you're real! Its all good. Kaili xx

Lavender said...

Aw Ces, Thanks for making me a Mental Ninja - it sounds so much better than just 'Plain Mental' ROFL! Also I got a big laugh when Kung Fu fighting started playing - I havent heard that in ages....Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts while Ive been lurking in the murk, you are a Sweetie!

PS: Kudos Em! Nice clean design - two thumbs up!!

Bimbimbie said...

Tsup*!* Ces at your diplomatic best I see lol ... I'll happily be a member of your cheer squad ... Hiyah*!*

Ces said...

The Aussies came together, yeah!

Thank Kaili. Just turn to the right.

Lavender, that award couldn't be more appropriate for you. Right on! Kungfu Fighting!

ALLRIGHT Bimbimbie! There's always room for you at the Ces camp.

Thank you for accepting the award ladies.

Tessa said...

b-b-b-b-b-Barney FRANK! Good Grief, woman, the only bloody barney I associate with is of the Rubble variety!

Ces, you darling! Thank you for putting me amongst the ranks of the great and the good...and the downright brilliant. I'm going to go into that dazzling yellow field of rape behind the house and dance like a gypsy. Right this minute! Thank you!

Tessa said...

Designed by Em? Em is a genius.

Karin said...

Thank you Ces!! HIIIIIII Yah, I am an honored liberal who loves many conservatives out there in the world - especially when they are as talented as you. Art definitely rises above politics :)

Lizzy Frizzfrock said...

My gosh... this just goes on & on. I'm now lying on the floor laughing SOOOO hard. You guys are just too funny!!!

Ces said...

Linda, I don't know what to say. Girl! Whew!!!

Barney Rubble is a thousand times more desirable that Barney Frank. You are definitely right Tessa. Thank you. You are welcome! She gave me the idea. She wants to be credited for her idea otherwise she won't give me anymore. See, now you know who the real brain is.

It does not really bother me Karin but I think it bother Renee very much. Maybe she just wants an excuse to swear.

Lizzy, Renee and Bella are a hoot! I love them very much! Thank you.

ValGalArt said...

Well you take the cake with this award Ces! This is the funniest award I have received and I will treasure it :) The music and graphics are fun and hilarious and I love your new avatar too!

Ces said...

Hey Val, I am glad you like it! Thank you!

Sarah said...

Oh Ces I'm so deeply touched!!! Thank you so very much - am speechless and in tears!!
Namaste, Sarah

Deborah said...

HA! This was great! It should come as no surprise that I am a registered Republican...I have an American Flag and an Army Flag flying out front every single day.

Deborah said...

Dearest Ces, sorry for being so late in picking this up. I am ever so honored to be considered a "hopeful" ninja teehee. However, I am very mental... **blows kisses** Deborah

Marcus Hadlock said...

I want a ninja award... :)

Renee said...

I can't believe I use to be fun once upon a time.
