I am so not bitter

Can someone please explain to me why amalah is up for a weblog award? Excuse me, but I bitch about my loved ones, I show cute photos of my kids, I have snarky DOWN PAT, for goodness sakes. And I also talk about a little thing called ORGAN DONATION! But do I get nominated? I've been complaining about it all week to the fambly to no avail-they haven't given me an ounce of sympathy.

And the comments!! I'd rather have 2 little 'ol commenters than 167 versions of "OMG! Me too! You're so awesome!"

All right, it's not all about me. But what about the other great mom blogs out there? Like my friend Moreena-top notch writing if I ever read some. (Unlike my perpetually unfortunate grammar-I speak English good, don't I?)

Anyway, I'm voting for Notes from the Trenches out of spite. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

This goddess is NOT bitter

Oh, but then you have to worry about striking the right tone over the award. I mean, you don't want to be all braggy about it, but also you don't want to go all uppity, I'm-too-good-for-your-stinkin'-award, either. You have to worry about whether to post the award badge, and whether to badger your readers to go vote, and then, of course, you have to check in on the voting obsessively, although you hate yourself for doing it.

Then you have to deal with the inevitable letdown when you lose, because (Dude!) amalah is in the same category with you.

You dodged a bullet, TC. Dodged it!

However, may I point out that some of the health blogs chosen as finalists (not all, mind you, and not the ones that came out on top), are incredibly booooooring? I think you need to hit that angle next year. Remind me when those nominations come around again, and I'll throw your scrub cap in the ring.

(I know, you probably don't wear a scrub cap. But saying the more accurate "scrub shirt" or something like that made the whole idea sound dirty. Which, however, could be one very good way to rake in the awards.)

Well, if you knew me better, throwing in my scrub shirt might sound EXACTLY like me.

You're so right about dodging the bullet, of course. As I always say, when life hands you lemons, find some tequila and salt and start drinkin'
