oh yeah, I forgot to mention…

… to commemorate another year of multiple nominations in a new media award event where I don’t stand a snow ball’s chance in hell of winning, I would like to announce the annual… 2011 CANNONBALL CATHOLIC BLOG AWARDS™©! ta da.

It’s an annual tradition here on The Crescat, five years in the making, where I celebrate being completely under appreciated and snubbed in favor of that dude, what’s his name, Peters-something-or-another.

It’s a Blog Award for all us under appreciated types, and you are strictly forbidden from nominating anyone that has written a book… and that Peters guy. And fanciful cooking bird watching priests. And anybody else who has a blog better than me. So good luck with that.

Nominees and winners of the 2011 Catholic Cannonball Awards™© receive no prizes, just the sweet sweet satisfaction that they were only slightly better than no one else really all that special. They reserve bragging rights and the distinction of being fantastical ordinary! Yay! You’re an awesome average blogger. Enjoy your victory.

Voting will begin in a special poll on September 17, 2011. Remember, do NOT leave your votes in this comment box.

    I appreciate Paul Stilwell's very nice compliment that I should update my blog more often. But the internet online degree crawlers, (who are by far my most common and faithful readers), appear to be happy as clams accessing my older posts.Not that I mind, in fact there's a certain pleasure in the irony of my most common readers being machines wholly incapable of understanding a word I write.But I do wonder about the apparent requirement to constantly update since it appears to be part of the problem with our modern society of constantly renewing the gorging of our senses and appetites.
