It’s a new year, and that means a new angle. So without further ado, let’s get started with my third installment of The BLAHS (BLog Awards Handed Out by Sackler). In the previous installments I pointed out that, unlike the various so-called blogging awards that amount to little more than chain letters, these goodies are handed out one at a time. Whether one would actually want to win one is another story altogether, but I leave that for you, the reader, to decide.
In the name of either democracy, or laziness, I am asking my readers to vote for the next blog award for the specific category of lady blogger with an attitude. Unlike the so-called nominees in those fake blogging awards that go around–and the fact that I have been “nominated” six times in the past few months verifies the bogus nature of these entities–only one of three nominees will emerge victorious. With that honor will come the accolades and/or humiliation, not to mention the option to receive limited edition tee shirts and refrigerator magnates with typographical errors that make them valuable collector’s items.
Enough for the preliminaries. Let’s get started. The nominees are: (click links to view blogs)
Clotilda Jamcracker for her blog of the same name. The first BLAHS went to The Blog of Funny Names. The second BLAHS went to the funniest named blog I follow, Millard Filmore’s Bathtub. So it only makes sense to nominate the funniest-named blogger I follow. Her attitude is more in her name than her writing; her main goal in life seems to be maintaining a comfortable middle-class American lifestyle on financial fumes. Attitude style: female Ebenezer Scrooge.
Essa Alroc of Essa on Everything. This is a woman with a no holds barred libertarian attitude. Nothing is sacred and everything is fair game. She makes no apologies for herself, or for that matter, anyone else. Be sure to wear a flak jacket when you read her blog. Attitude style: female George Carlin.
Sue (aka Sooz) of Dreamshadow59. Now here is an attitude I love. She makes no apologies for being a single female on the prowl, or for enjoying more than a drink or two along the way. Her faux romantic advice columns are a hot hoot. Now, if I only had her full name and a phone number. Attitude style: 21st century Mae West.
So there you have it folks: a professed skinflint, a professed libertarian, and a professed nymphom–er, party girl. And while the rules of this award allow me to bestow all three of them whenever and however I want, here is your chance to participate. Actually, the only rules of this award are that I can do whatever I want. And what I want is allow you 7 days from the initial post to vote with no limit on how often you can vote. In the spirit of Al Capone, ballot box stuffing is not just allowed, but encouraged. See you at the awards ceremony.
(Note: you don’t actually have to visit and read these blogs to vote, but it is recommended)
