"But what will I WEAR?"

I've been nominated for the Canadian Blog Awards in the category "Best Personal Blog". This startled me. It made me uneasy for some reason - I felt pressure. At first I was so nervous I thought, "This will no doubt result in a flurry of non-posting", but then I realised that, historically, I can't shut up. So I'm sure things will be fine.

I don't know if there's voting involved.... is there? But if there is, well I guess I wouldn't mind if you guys went over and voted for me. Just if you've got the time, only if you're not too busy. When I win my fabulous gem-studded prize I will give a very gracious acceptance speech. And I'll offer pie to all those who live close enough to come get some.

PS: Thanks for nominating me, Dave. You're so supportive....seriously. Ever since I was 12 and won a red velcro wallet in the Toronto Sun poetry contest, for which you entered my stirring "Raccoon" piece. Win or not, I owe you some pie.

Fantastic, a well deserved nomination!

Ok, Shannon, you don't just DON"T promise a fat guy pie and not expect to be taken up on it. It'll have to be sugar free as I'm diabetic but I'm sure you can knit one of those. We'll be out in Feb and stopping up Campbell River way ... so get baking. I remember your poem well and I remember you winning the prize. I also remember that for a little kid you dressed with a real flair for fashion - do you still?

Oh, and yes, there will be voting so get everyone over to vote. I'm not sure when it starts but nominations end today, maybe you can give people the url for where to go to vote, I don't know how to do that.
