Well it seems my highly entertaining and remarkably astute Antipodean friend, Archie, has chosen me to be a recipient of the Golden Primate Award For Blog Excellence. Apparently, in my hands words are lethal weapons — one of the best compliments I’ve ever been given. It rates up there with the time someone told me I had really nice teeth. That’s how good it is. It makes me want to brush all the more rigorously, so that I can be even more shiny, golden and generally excellent
The award was created by Dorid — who I’ve only just discovered, thanks to Archie, and who is actually rather cool. Upon receiving the award, it is apparently customary to link back to its creator and choose more people to receive the award. The criteria are:
“It’s issued by bloggers to bloggers who show excellence and thoughtfulness in blogging, especially those who are not afraid to be related to a monkey.”
With this in mind, I’d like to share this privilege with…
Mike — a keen mind, a genuine guy and someone who even occasionally laughs at my jokes!
Will — okay, so he’s abandoned Yorkshire for the Canadian wilderness. That doesn’t make him a bad political commentator.
kallioppe — a fellow Idiosyncratican and a great writer on… well, what it’s like to be a writer trying to get a foothold!
Lottie — she’s a huge George Carlin fan. Do I really need to say more?
