On the Blog Awards

I have two matters to address on two different blog awards.

First: I have three votes in Alasandra'sHomeschool Blog Awards. Three. And one I mistakenly gave to myself. This is not good for my ego.

Second: Thank you for not nominating me for the other Homeschool Blog Awards. I mean, despite my showing in Alasandra's blog awards I know I would have swept the HSBAs and then I would have been stuck with such prizes as a gift certificate for Vision Forums (Can I get the latest Dawkins book there?), a page from the King James bible framed to make it seems as if it's magically floating and a copy of Passionate Housewives Desperate for God. The last one just sounds dirty and shame on them for offering that.

There are a few good non-envangelical, fundamentalist, protestant prizes but what on earth would I do with the bulk of the them? Blog giveaway? Lynn, wouldn't you love a 10 DVD set called How to Disciple Your Family: A Plan for Generational Victory? Doc, doesn't The Family (An uncompromising vision statement for the domestic bliss and cultural dominion of the Christian family.) just speak to your experience?

Good thing I wasn't nominated. Too much hassle.

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God. Not only does it sound dirty it sounds like a really BAD TV show.

I'd watch it!!! :D

Dawn, you had 5 votes and now you have 6! (Payola accepted. Small bills preferred.)

Last year, I had a certain number of votes in Alasandra's contest (I forget the exact number), THEN I noticed that ONE of my devoted fans RETRACTED their vote. [Sniff-sob-bawl] Can you believe it?? Was it something I said?? I'm still fretting about it a year later :( My fragile ego can't take these contests. [sniff-sniff] Maybe I COULD use a little Victory :S

Wow, there are contests? Why don't I know about such important things? I must be living behind the moon. :)
