I realize I just posted, like minutes ago, but I was checking out my statcounter and noticed that someone came here via Social Luxe Lounge . I've never heard of it but the tag line is "Pamper. Polish. Primp. Socialize. Party!" which makes it sound like a cyber meet-n-greet for Women of Elegant Leisure. I imagine them all wearing caftans and lounging on zebra print divans as they type about their grueling days filled with correspondence to diplomatic wives, re-wrapping their turbans and ordering the servants to dust behind the water feature in the foyer. This is obviously a group I need to spend more time with. So I started poking around to see where my link was and guess where I found it? On their nomination page for their annual awards under the Funniest Blog category. I've been nominated! Which one of you kids did it? Fess up.
I'll be honest with you here, I use to make fun of people who put those little buttons up on their blogs that say, "Sassiest Blog!" or "Third Nicest Blog on the Web!" or "I'm a Blogger! Love me!" But now I know that I was just bitter and jealous. Because being nominated for something is fun. Even if I haven't even heard of the group giving the award, or the prize that comes with it, or the leverage being Social Luxe Lounge's 2009 Funniest Blog would give me if I won. Line jumping privileges at the DMV? A corner booth at Chili's. A free Slurpee machine! So help me, if there is a Slurpee machine in the prize package and you people don't vote every single day I will go from being a mildly funny blog to a Blog of Fiery Rage and Fury. It will be nothing but stories about mimes and hangnails and sick kittens from here on out. And I mean it.
They say that just to be nominated is an honor. I'll let you know if that's true after the votes have been counted.
