You know, I don't get a lot of opportunity to sound a fanfare for myself, so I'm going to take this opportunity to do just that.
I've been given a real honour: a Top 5 listing by So Many Stories, a top-flight blog review site. I can only say in public what I told Rayne (the site's driving force) in an email earlier tonight--my ego is so big I keep tripping over it now. Coming as it does on the heels of Miss Dancehall's Thinking Blogger award and Meno's Rockin' Guy Blogger award I'm starting to think that you guys really like me...so is this the point at which I reveal my ravaging heroin addiction, commit a highly-publicized suicide and hope that someone finds that spiral-bound notebook full of my meanderings and schmaltzy, half-finshed thoughts which will be auctioned for a cool mil at which point I become the posthumous star of months and months of VH-1 and MTV retrospectives of my life, my music and my wiry moustache?
Er...where was I? Oh, sorry, I was jotting some schmaltzy, meandering thoughts in this spiral-bound notebook which I will place, as I always do, in the top center (unlocked) drawer of my desk in my office which is the second door on the right as you go down the hall.
So, for my regular readers, thank you for sticking with me, thank you for reading, and thank you for letting me know, often and copiously that I have some talent for spinning stories. I never should have doubted you. And thank you Rayne for the high praise and the listing.
I'm off to see if I can rope my ego to a wicker basket and take a twilight flight over the fields.
