I'd like to thank the academy ...


Well, isn't this special? A nomination for "Best Liberal Blog" at the 2005 Canadian Blog Awards. You shouldn't have. No, really. I guess I feel just a smidge guilty since, as many people can tell, I spend an inordinate amount of time obsessed with things Americana but I'm trying to recover. I'm thinking of smacking around Pete Rempel on a regular basis now.

It's a start.

BY THE WAY, no disrespect to the candidates in the other categories but I figure I might as well start figuring out who I'd vote for and, in the category of "Best Blog Post Series," I'm thinking that this choice is a no-brainer. I've always had a soft spot for single-minded, maniacal obsession.

Speaking as one of the other nominees for Best Blog Post Series, I can't help but agree. While it's been great fun debunking Ezra, and apparently others enjoy it, it really can't compete to the actual reporting and research which has gone into Buckets of Grewal.

Of course, to people like Peter Rempel, doing that much fact-based research is in itself suspicious and therefore makes the blogging more suspect than a random stream of unsubstantiated opinion would be, but hey.

"I've always had a soft spot for single-minded, maniacal obsession."

I think 'maniacal' is a little excessive. (Mrs. Buckets, by contrast, thinks 'single-minded' is an understatement.)

Well, then, we'll just split the difference and call it even.
