The envelope, please...

Doug Ross has posted his "2011 Fabulous 50 Blog Award Winners", and I was surprised and gratified that my George Washington bit won "Post of the Year". Many thanks, Doug!

You should drop by Doug's place and check out all the winners. I was particularly amused at some of the booby prizes, particularly this trio:

The David Brooks Award for Demi-Conservatism: David Frum
The David Frum Award for Faux Conservatism: Jennifer Rubin
The Jennifer Rubin Award for Pseudo-Conservatism: David Brooks

It has always been my contention that you have a great many lurkers here that simply do not post on a regular basis. This just proves the point. Maybe you should employ one of those Amazon thngies.:)

Jazza called Gillard the "Drawling Bogan", I like that:) They have a much more polite word for a**hole or bleephead than we do.

Yojimbo is right about lurkers ... Mrs Skeeter and I are two of many.
But that tendency to lurk is not going to stop us from wishing you and Mrs Paco a Happy New Year; and to thank you for the years of pleasure that you have given us with your wise words.
We are now about 11 hours into 2012. Our TV just told us it will be showing New York's midnight fireworks live in about four hours. As we watch it, we will be thinking of you and Mrs Paco; and all our old friends in your timezone.

Paco, I just hope this doesn't mean you will be expecting a higher level of comments, concomitant to the award winning prose you indite. Some of us borderline idiots may get winnowed, if that comes about.

Oh,well. Congratulations, Paco.

May it become an annual affair.

Well done Paco, well deserved.

Paco said...

Thanks to Rebecca for her thoughtfulness.

Happy New Year, Skeeter! My best to you and your bride!

Many thanks to all for the nice comments (R-Man: No need to worry. Tomorrow I resume my "quantity over quality" strategy!)

RebeccaH said...

You deserved it, Paco. That was a bright bit of writing.

Tomorrow I resume my "quantity over quality" strategy!

Good. I will endeavor to provide the best quantity I can!

Wow! Congratulations, Paco!

I'm going to slink over to download a loser's badge forthwith and posthaste. Or is that posthaste and forthwith? Us losers get confused so easily.
