The Brass Crescent is setting

Time to cast your vote for the alt.muslim and City of Brass‘s 2006 Brass Crescent Awards. 

Time’s running out, so hop to it, beoble.

Unlike last year, this time around my blog didn’t make the cut, so this plug is a fairly disinterested one.  Given how dormant Akram’s Razor has been for much of the last year, I’m not surprised (or troubled) in the slightest by my omission.

But don’t count me completely.  They might come up with a new category at the 11th hour–like "Dullest 2nd Year" or "Biggest Disappointment Since Receiving an Award"–in which  Akram’s Razor would be an absolute shoo-in.

In all seriousness, it’s actually a bit of a relief, as this way I can merrily continue to blog about silly topics like Legos and toilet disasters. 

Shabana, however, is in the running (in two categories, "Best Blog" and "Best Female Blog"), as are a number of other friends and comrades from the Blogosphere.

The deadline for votes is December 4th.

    No worries, I didnt make it either. I was nominated, but no luck.
    I dont take the blog thing too seriously. It is a way for me to vent and post pictures of the babies, not much more.
    Good luck to Shabana, however, she got my vote.

    Hey, abu sinan, that’s all I was looking for. Venting. And this whole popularity contest has clipped some of my wings … :)
    Thanks for the support!

  • Abu Sinan

    I think the difference between my venting and yours, Shabana, is that you do it on a more regular basis. I tend to usually just post bits and pieces.
    You also clearly spend more time on your writing and it is well done Mine, more often than not, is just a comment or two on an article or what.
    Your blog is honestly one of my “must reads” every day.

  • Svend

    Thanks, AS. Perhaps I’m just longwinded…

  • ABD

    you should know that you certainly registered on our radar: consider it a nomination for “most missed at the brasscrescent nominations” :)

  • Leila

    Mine would be “the longest tangent ever on weightlifting in an Islamic Blog”
