Okay, I know I'm probably gonna embarrass the chickadee...but our very special Humuhumu received some very special national attention today.

Her website Critiki, ranked #4 on Yahoo's Top 9 of the day!

If you go to the
http://9.yahoo.com, click on #4 for today (day 12)...there it is! Yeah!

Great recognition for Critiki and positive exposure for tiki. Way to go Miss Humu! Congratulations!

Aw, shucks.

Yeah, that was a very nice surprise to wake up to this morning. I'd never heard of Yahoo!'s The 9, it's actually pretty dippy (but then, I can be pretty dippy, myself). They show Critiki's spinning globe, which is neat, and they show some pictures that are actually from Humu Kon Tiki and not Critiki, which is weird, and then they segue to the next website by saying something about watching sports at tiki bars. Oh well. It's still nice.

The link above will work for today, but come tomorrow it'll be available in the archives, at this link:

http://9.yahoo.com/2006/09/11

You can vote for your favorite story, vote for Tiki Me Away! (If'n that's your favorite -- I kinda liked the cowgirls one, myself.)

Congratulations Humhumu!

(GROG wasn't sure exactly what kind of "national exposure" to expect. )

Nah, I turned down Playboy, I'm holding out for Juggs. Though they don't seem to be at all interested in me, I can't figure out why....

Thanks for all the kindness, guys!

Forget Juggs magazine. As the proprieter of Oogamooga, you more than qualify for Muggs magazine.

Grog, don't ever leave. I need the comic relief! That Playboy post was brilliant.
