And the nominees are....

I love the smell of nepotism in the morning. My sister won an award for her blog and now she has nominated me. I'm honored. Now I'm supposed to nominate 7 of my favorite blogs for an award and also disclose 7 things you might not know about me.
I know I'm not going to win because it just wouldn't look right. But I was wondering, since my sister's blog name is ooglebloops, will the award be called a "Bloopie"?
The requirements of the contest may be a little bit more than I can deal with. Where would I find time to have 7 favorite blogs? I can barely keep up with what seeps out of my head, never mind what's pouring out of other peoples heads. I'm not sure I even know 7 things about myself and if there is anything that people don't know about me it's going to stay that way because I like staying out of jail.

So let's see how many blogs I can list as favorites.

1) This one is obvious, it's my sister's and she nominated me so she gets the pole position. This one covers all the fun you can have learning to be a farmer.

2) This one is also my sister's. This covers what she does in her spare time with just the things she has lying around the house and no money.

3) This is a great blog that tells you how to survive when civilization comes to an ugly end. Oh shit! It seems as though this blog has come to an ugly end. I just clicked on it and it's not there. Well it was great while it lasted, tons of great info. I'm sorry now that I didn't download it all. Well maybe it's just temporarily down and will return soon...

4) Now we start getting into the heavy stuff. This woman's head gushes with righteous, eloquent, politically incorrect essays that I can't keep up with but is worth reading if you have the time.

5) Michael Astera, the author of that brilliant essay "Let the Stupid Grow the Food", 'nuff said.

6) This is probably one of the most popular alternate reality sites in the blogosphere. Heavy, deep and very politically incorrect. One of several blogs that this prolific fellow writes. I don't know how he does it.

7) This is perhaps my favorite. Sort of a companion blog to Smoking Mirrors but with very pretty pictures.

Oh my! I actually came up with 7 and I still have one more to list. I'll make this one an alternate in case Survival Acres doesn't come back. This is not so much a blog as it is a story, a story of one mans life. I could become persona non grata to many people that I have known in the past and some that I still know and consider my friends today, just for posting this link. That would be a shame but this story deserves to be heard. We report, you decide.

As for 7 things you don't know about me you all can take some wild guesses and I will neither confirm nor deny them. I shall remain as I am, an inter dimensional man of mystery, even to myself.

  1. A "bloopie" - I like that!!! Well, as this nominating thing goes, it's just an honor to be nominated - there's no winning beyond the nomination by your peer(s)!!! You have to lift the Kreativ Blogger emblem off my blog and adhere it somehow to your sidebar - so all will know you were at one point recognized for your "kreativ"-ity. I have not yet figured out how to do that - so if you do, let me know.
    And YOU get the "bloopie" in my book!!!
