I've Come All Over Queer!*

*Sorry just a bit of inside humour for people who remember Kenneth Williams' of Carry On and Julian & Sandy fame at moments of high emotion - his delivery of that line in that whiny, nasal voice with appropriate hand and wrist gestures always broke me up.

But seriously I was honoured when one of the most intriguing bloggers around nominated me for the "Thinking Blogger Award."

Tater is one of the finest writers in blogdom and as our friend at I Need More Cowbell (who was also nominated) remarked "his writings pull me in to another place or time." I just wish he'd post more often but know damn well that when he does it will knock my socks off.

I not sure how thoughtful or thought-provoking my blog is when I compare it to people like (and this is just a partial list) Lynette, Joe, Eric, Cowbell or Tater himself, but thanks for the recognition Tater. And I really did "come all over queer!"

I know one of the rules is to pass the award on to others you feel are deserving but looking at Eric, Tater, and Cowbells' lists I'm at a loss as who to add. From their lists I've added three or four other fascinating blogs to my daily check list.

and richly deserved, friend! i love your blog. it is, absolutely, an oasis in my daily rounds. some days i come just to look at the countdown-to-rome box. then i find that that old '60s tune, "go-ing to the chapel and we're (uh) gonna get m-a-a-a-a-ried" is running through my head and i think of you and your pending nuptials. this is a grand place and it lifts my heart.

Hooray. Good choice in going with the silver, by the way -- it works really well with the color of the walls.

(Hi, I'm the gayest ever.)
