Today appears to be award day. I am at 117 in the Total Bollocks chart, up from 165 last year, which is not bad to say that all That Tory Blogger's mates will have voted. I've made myself a slightly amended button. Anyone who wants one doing of any of the other images, it's a five minute job, so do let me know:

The nominations are also out for the botties, and I'd particularly like to congratulate Caron, Grouchy, and Millennium. Perhaps the year of Fluffy Justice is here at last? C'mon judges, put aside your cuddly toy prejudice and vote fluffy. Don't be predictable and pick Charlotte or Mark or Costigan. You know it makes fluffy sense.

Now I have to organise decorations for the Losers' Table. Perhaps I could get Mat to bake some special cookies...

Thanks - I still can't believe it.

For what it's worth, here's an excerpt from my nominations to the powers that be:

"• Liberal Democrat Blog of the Year: Jennie Rigg, because it would annoy her to be kicked of the Perpetual Losers’ Table and more importantly because I think one of the main points of the blogosphere is to engage new people and not just disappear up our own backsides. I bet you Jennie’s is read by more non political activists than any other Lib Dem blog . She’s fabulous in a million different ways and her outrageous irreverence should be celebrated."

If you're who I think you are, I voted for you above the Medium Heffalump simply because I much prefer F1 to DW...

Yes, I kind of blew my cover there, didn't I?;-)

My head feels as though it's about to explode - too many F1 stories to cope with, Lotus on grid, BMW saved, Pat Symonds offered well as blogging excitement. I need some smelling salts:-)

You beat the furry pachyderm! And Lynne! You're on the top table now, well done.

Some peculiar choices in that 300 though, and I'm not just saying it because I'm not there this year.

Thank you Jennie. I think you should be in the short-list though, politics, drinking, geeking and gardening, genius! ;) You do more to promote the Lib Dems than any blog I read!

Hm, yes, well, I may have screwed that one up by putting you in my shortlist anyway even after being expressly told by you that I definitely shouldn't on pain of pain :-D Fortunately for you, the others must have been more afeared.

(I can't "make sure of" anything on the shortlist, happily. There's not a collective discussion, it's all private voting of our individual top fives and adding them up, and I've no idea how the others voted. But obviously, to spread this simple intelligence around would be to stop people from conspiracy fantasising about the collective agenda and prejudices of the judges and generally having a marvellous time *headdesk*)

Yes, it's time for Millennium to win. If not now, when?

You're right though, if me, Quist and Mark got absolutely nothing it would make for a great night for everyone except us three. :)

Dear Auntie Jennie,

Thank you VERY MUCH for all your support. Fluffy HUGS!

I do hope I will still be allowed at your table, though; I would MUCH rather sit with you than win a plastic cup!

Fortunately, I do not think that I will win - surely it is between Charlotte and Wicked Uncle Costigan. And HOORAH for Bloggers from not-the-South-East! Though Ms Caron is an interesting choice too... could it be Scotland's year?

Luv from
