Well okay maybe not, but I would like to thank my buddy Annie of the smart blog http://www.thedayafteryesterday.co.uk/ for listing alfred lives here as her favourite blog ever in the whole wide world and bestowing this Versatile Blogger award on Alfie. Fave blog ever! Well, okay, she said top five, I was rounding up. Whatever.
Oh, and I am not sure why this is called the Versatility Award. Sounds totally X-rated to me. Or does it mean a blog that can transform into a giant alien killer? Or maybe Alfie is versatile because he can be the cutest canine in the world AND Oprah's secret half-brother?
Like all good things, this one has strings attached. In this case, to nominate five of my favourite blogs for the same award. Well there are lots of blogs I read and follow and love, including Annie's which is not eligible here, so it's tough to select just five. But I did, and here they are.
1- In Jayne's World http://www.injaynesworld.blogspot.com/: smart, funny, liberal, big-hearted, politically aware. Read her, especially her Sunday recaps. I laugh and think and wave my fist at the idiots and hypocrites she is calling out.
2- Attack of the Redneck Mommy http://www.theredneckmommy.com/: funny, touching, opinionated and so brave to reveal so much of her life in a wise and insightful way. I read her blog and feel that I know her.
3- Patty Punker http://www.pattypunker.com/: smart, good-hearted. opinionated, judgemental, vulgar, drops the f-bomb a lot. I love her.
4- The Didactic Pirate http://www.didactic-pirate.blogspot.com/: the real life adventures of a teacher and father who apparently expected a Jack Sparrow kind of life. Smart and funny, and a helluva writer.
5- My newest fave, The Pop Eye http://thepopeye.blogspot.com/: Xanadu-loving, pop culture obsessed, Beckeye reviews and spews opinions on all things TV and pop culture. Aside from the American Idol obsession, she had me at hello.
There you go, five blogs to read and follow and love... Check 'em out!
