Idiots' Collective has apparently been nominated for some kind of an award, and suprisingly enough, it's not for the "Most Posts Related to Bodily Fluids and/or Functions" prize. I won that trophy last year.
No, indeed. The crew over at The Hub of Sparkle! have, for some reason, seen fit to put my site into the running for "Best Personal/Diary Blog 2008," which is odd given that 2008 was not a stellar year for this outpost of idiocy where personal/diary blogging was concerned. Oh sure, the year kicked off with some cretin taking a crap on my street - an all-too-personal event for the ol' diary - and made its way through Bumper Nuts, wedding pissers, driving with the wife, the Olympics and, of course, Guro, Guro, Guro, but looking back at the year's output, I'm struck by just how impersonal the posting was. I guess a presidential election, a financial crisis and the prospect of one's government frittering away trillions of dollars rather focuses the mind on matters external. How posting on such matters gains me recognition as a "personal/diary" blogger, however, remains unclear.
But given that a man should never turn down kind words, I choose merely to be content in my good fortune.
