It’s 2008!


And I’ve got some hits from the 2008 Blog­gies Awards already. Appar­ent­ly the wee blog has been placed in the Hall of Fame for win­ning the Best Asian Weblog cat­e­go­ry three times and is not eli­gi­ble for nom­i­na­tions in that cat­e­go­ry any­more. Not that I’ve been any­where near Asia in the last three years so I wouldn’t be eli­gi­ble any­way. Of course, you can still nom­i­nate the blog in the Best Cana­di­an Weblog. Or the Best Pho­tog­ra­phy of a Weblog. Or maybe the Life­time Achieve­ment cat­e­go­ry if you reaaaal­ly want. ;) And what’s in it for you, you ask? Well, I might post here more often since Blog­gies nom­i­na­tions = more traf­fic = more read­ers = more com­ments = Fir­da post­ing more blog entries because she’s an atten­tion whore. But “might” is the key­word here, so no promis­es there. Yeah, I know. I suck. :)

The truth is, I used to post often back then because my beloved read­ers would won­der about my well-being if I didn’t post any­thing for days and I would feel guilty for it. Now that they know that Troy is tak­ing excel­lent care of me, if I didn’t post for ages, no one would ques­tion my absence so I don’t feel guilty for not post­ing. Hence the infre­quent post­ing. So there you have it. My grand excuse for being a slog­ger (slack­ing blog­ger).

Any­way, since it’s the new year, here’s a list of good eye and ear can­dies from 2007 in threes accord­ing to yours tru­ly because I des­per­ate­ly need an excuse to make a list (not real­ly though). So, with­out fur­ther ado:

Feel free to post your ver­sion in the com­ment form. I’m not just pimp­ing for com­ments. I real­ly do want to know! Hon­est!

  1. I don’t know if Troy ever saw Jill Bar­ber in Kingston — but she used to work at the Sleep­less Goat with Nass­er and play at Kingston pubs. She’s love­ly — and a damn fine cook, I recall! Nas was dead chuffed when we found out that her musi­cal career had real­ly tak­en off.

  2. Cool! Only one degree of sep­a­ra­tion from Jill Bar­ber! Her old­er album, Oh Heart, is one of my favourite albums of all time. I could lis­ten to it for hours!

  3. Hi! Nice to meet you! With all these awards you’ve been get­ting, I plan on vis­it­ing your site more often! Thanks for shar­ing your thoughts!
