Now, hey! This is important! Do I sound like your seventh-grade gym teacher? Listen up, people!
Remember when I did not get to be a finalist in those weblog awards last week? Well, guess who did? Chatting at the Sky, that's who. I am not even going to imagine that any of you do not read Chatting at the Sky, as everyone reads her. Which is Danielle Steele's slogan ("Everybody Reads Danielle Steele").
Chatting at the Sky is my actual friend in real life, and we spent Thanksgiving with her and her sister, The Nester. I know that this makes me awfully cool.
After I didn't get to be a finalist, I was glumly looking at the people who were clearly better than me who did, and when I saw her name I SCREECHED and yelled out to Marvin, "CHATTING AT THE SKY IS UP FOR A BLOG AWARD!"
Now, it is Marvin's fault that I blog in the first place. I never wanted to do it. So he tries to be supportive. But he did not know that people would, you know, actually READ me and he did not know that I would actually read other people, so even though he spent Thanksgiving with Chatting at the Sky and her entire family, he does not have the first clue what her blog name is, which I quickly discovered when he said,
"Chatting at the Sky. Is that a Native American blog?"
Those of you who have read me for a while, think back. Have you noticed my vast interest in all things Native American? Have you noticed how often I reference the Sioux peoples and sweat lodges in my posts? And those drum circles! You can't get me away from them!
Did he think I secretly had an interest in Native American things? Or maybe he just thought I wanted to be well-rounded, read up about everyone. But if that were the case, why would I be EXCITED about Chatting at the Sky being a finalist?
Anyway, the point of this whole story is that today starts the day that you can vote for Chatting at the Sky for Best Small Blog, which conjures up fewer images of lodged emeralds than my Best Hidden Gem category, doesn't it? Go vote for her here. You can vote once a day until — oh, I forget. A few days from now, so do it quickly. You can only vote once a day. When I voted, she was in second place. We can't have that. Power to the Native American blogs.
Okay, I'm gonna feel really bad if she's competing against an actual Native American blog.
