Idly browsing HJhop’s blog, I looked at the post What the critics are saying about HJHop.
As funny as ever, a mixture of plaudits and insults.
I was pleased to see this blog was in there, and even our uber-prestigious silver cup thing award was proudly displayed. Idly thinking, “it’s about time I posted some new favourites. I might even Photoshop a novel silver cup” and ….
Oh shit. The date on his post was May 5, 2007….. Even assuming that this was somehow posted the day after he got the award, that means almost a year – a year – has passed. My life is circling the event horizon….
So, I suspect it’s taken me a year to even notice that HJHop post. It’s obviously taken me even longer to pick a new Top Ten, because I haven’t decided on one yet. I’ll set a new Top Ten date for this year’s, then, and pretend it’s an annual award.
Ah, I’ve just found my old top ten post, “October 27th, 2007” Phew. I’ve snatched half a year back.
Still, I’ve committed myself now. I’m going to choose 1 May, because that is the day I always wash my face in the dew to stay beautiful forever. Old English superstition folk custom. As far as I can tell, it works 🙂 (Rain usually has to stand in for dew. Even suspected dog-piss at a push. OK, I’m not 100% sure that I can recognise dew, but it’s the thought that counts.)
So, 1 May it is. If anyone wants to corrupt the judging panel – by offering cash incentives or posting brilliant blogs – you have a couple of weeks or so left to try. There may even be an updated award icon but that isn’t a promise.
