Today I turned 42. My beard seems greyer than ever and I’m certain that my neck is making a clicking sound that wasn’t there yesterday. But, to make up for that, it seems that I’ve been nominated for Best Literary Weblog on the BlogNet Awards website!
I’m not sure who nominated me for this, or if they chose me themselves, but thank you whoever you are!
If you agree that Gary William Murning Online is the Best Literary Weblog, please drop by and vote for me!

Okay, picture the scene. You’re possibly the world’s most famous former political prisoner. You have lousy taste in shirts. You really can’t dance, though you are quite willing to give it a shot. You’re the former president of South Africa, the first to be elected in fully representative democratic elections — and your 90th birthday is only a couple of weeks away. Life is pretty good. Everything is looking far more positive than it once did.
And then this happens.
Wouldn’t you want them to take you back to that island, lock you up and throw away the key?
I know I would.
