As popular as the bookstore with the very loud cinema ad

Maybe I’ve had as good a chuckle as when I read the quote ‘If English was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for you’, but Xiaxue’s latest get-back at one of her detractors, in her own inimitable way (don’t argue ok, I say inimitable means inimitable) has got me chuckling again. Remember to scroll down to the post proper if you’ve already seen her photo before.

Meanwhile, back in Safetypore, I’ve been vacillating between slamming corporations for being stingy and lauding the Armed Forces for doing a good job, and in the time in between, I’ve been mulling over whether I, personally, could do more. I’m not very good at mulling, but one of my online friends is, and she’s again gotten what I feel down pat. You go, girl, you’re the Mull of Kintyre. There. Another tune to stick in your head for your effort.

On another matter altogether, voting for the Asia Blog Awards 2004 has closed, and results will be posted on Saturday. To say the winner of the category in which this blog was nominated was a foregone conclusion would be a big understatement, so I won’t say it. Congratulations Mr Brown.

I am really very surprised and flattered to have been nominated, and always expected to be an also-ran, so not coming in stone motherless last is a bonus. In fact, if my last name were Shaw, I’d be Also-Ran Shaw.

Thank you all nonetheless for having nothing better to do and voting for me. I love youse all!

(Of course, there’s a down side to the relative increase in popularity. Some friends of mine (online and in the flesh) have stopped blogging cold, but they’re still keeping a journal on Microsoft Word, citing the unwanted traffic to their blogs from mine. Hogwash! A blog’s a blog’s a blog. You waaaant people to read you. Come back, you, you and you.)

iTunes’ party shuffle is playing a copy of: Wonderful – Annie Lennox – Bare, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn’t steal music.

  1. Well, Awards or not, I think you have a very cool Glob. Awards cannot eat one.

    Some more your one got nicer colours, iTunes info, and got stories and photos of SAF. You a winnah in my book.

  3. Hey Mr. Miyagi, about the comment you left on my blog. Never mind, it’s all right. Like I said, I don’t mind being linked to decent blogs, but not to depraved perverts’ blogs. The pervert’s already got my link, but I think right now I can’t be bothered with idiots like that anymore ’cause I’ve already vented my anger. No apologies needed, Mr. Miyagi!

    (Actually it’s quite an honour to be linked to both your blog and Mr. Brown’s, two of SG’d best bloggers. No one in their right mind would complain about that!)
