Thinking Blogger Award


Zoe Brain nominated me for the Thinking Blogger Award, for which I'm very grateful and humbled. I'm also aware that with every recipient nominating five others, that within 17 days everyone in the blogosphere will have the award. Methinks Zoe may be misidentifying thought provoking ideas with the confusion caused by reading my nonsense. That's ok though, I'm not giving it back.

And now I am supposed to link to my five nominations for The Thinking Blogger Award, and since we're all Thinking Bloggers or esteemed readers of a Thinking Blogger, I'm going to label my choices in hexidecimal. Congratulate yourself for understanding the complexities of a 16-base numbering system, and by all means follow the links. These are in no particular order.

1. Hold the Mayo. "The Truth Served Plain", and a long-time friend. He doesn't post often enough, but when he does it's a treat.

2. Lovable Pixie. Not well known yet, but she's got the right idea about starting interesting conversations.

3. Mapgirl's Fiscal Challenge. Financial matters from a young single professional who's a little freaked out about her future.

4. The Ministry of Minor Perfidy. An ecclectic group blog, and by that I mean the guys (and girl) writing there range from a BDS-afflicted commie to a right-wing potential tower-sniper. They post beer recipes too!!!

5. Random Nuclear Strikes. Another group blog, with a major focus on the Pacific Northwest. If tree-hugging hippies piss you off, visit here and get a glimpse of what it's like to live amongst the rainbow-heads.

So there you go. Be honest now, how many folks caught my little trick? Number 4 wasn't hexidecimal, it was actually octal!!! Don't you feel smart? That's why you come by, isn't it? To feel smarter than...

1 Gee, thanks! um. I am going to have to think about this and post later. I'm headed off to NYC this weekend.

BTW, what is 'BDS'? (and I know the commie isn't me. FWIW, he's a socialist.)

2 BDS = Bush Derangement Syndrome. Where *everything* can be blamed on the President if you try hard enough.

In this case, "commie" is a term of endearment. The Bucketheads have assured me that despite his online personna, he's a nice guy in person. I'm looking forward to meeting him.

3 Ted, I've met him. That's a matter of opinion! LOL!

Thanks again for picking my solo blog. I can't have those other ministers mucking up the money situation. I'll have to go bust their heads open if they forget a payment again. (Which isn't true, but the 404 error message likes to insinuate that.)
