It’s not that this is a major event or anything but I have been nominated for the ‘Versatile Blogger Award’ by one of my faithful followers – The crazy woman behind the ‘Life in Farce Lane’ blog.
First of all – thanks Jenny! Keep your craziness coming as it makes for entertaining reading when I’m on the tram heading home trying to ignore the other crazies who are singing themselves to sleep.
Secondly, I need to nominate 15 other bloggers who I think deserve it. Hmm, this is beginning to sound like a pyramid scheme of gratification but I’m willing to play ball:

- Musical antics and recording transcripts available via I’m On The Bandwagon
- Frequent commenter and blogger from across the border, Stuart chronicles his account of his Invasion of Holland
- Poetic, insightful and straight from the nearest cloud, Chris Manno runs the JetHead Blog
- An exposure of the chaotic life in Norfolk, UK brought to you through the Private Secret Diary.(Hmm, 15 is a longer list than I thought … )
- Linda is also based in Holland and I’ve guest posted on her Adventures in Expat Land blog before.

- And finally, as irreverent as he’s clever, please support his bid for the US Presidency as documented on the Dilbert Blog.
- I am a man. This may sound obvious to some of you but I met and spoke to at least two recent subscribers who both told me how surprised they were as they thought I was female. Apparently my blog is not masculine enough.

- As a kid, I tried to emulate my uncle once but couldn’t fit my school uniform over my pyjamas.
- I spend time perfecting cocktail recipes in the evenings. (I make sure that I blog before I start this … )
