Best use of Graphics:  GCS (even tho his approach has changed slightly, his journal is worth a visit, an add-to-your-alerts, and a few comments)

Most humorous Journal: DATING TIPS FOR PSYCHOPATHS (what can I say?  it speaks for itself)

Most Emotional Journal: Just One Girl's Head Noise (not so much for her display of emotions, so much as the emotions evoked.  pammee, you go girl)

Best Family Journal: DUST BUNNY CLUB OF NORTH AMERICA (an oldie but oh so goodie)

Best-Kept Secret Journal: Lotus Martinis (no secret to me)

Most Creative/Original Journal: My feelings are real... (gutsy)

SO...from me...
  "My feelings are real.." earns three votes;
  "Adventures of a desperately fat housewife" earns two;
  "Screamin' Remo" earns two;
  "Just One Girl's Head Noise" earns two;
  and to all the nominees, congrats.

I'd like to add a special note:  there were some journals and folks that I love, that were not nominated (admittedly in part because I didn't nominate any one or take part in any phase except this final vote).  Some of these are found on the side-bar.  Also, Jimmy of StupidSheet Guy is a fairly new addition to my preferred reads.   MM (madman) and P. Little (aurora) are great to pass the time with.

And Judi, you ARE the best.  Make no mistake, honeychile...  This lady was the reason I began an online journal in the first place.  You'll always have a special seat reserved in my kitchen, pull up a chair, grab a cuppa, and we'll talk.

  3. Oh Frick! Sorry to be spamming you, but I just noticed you nominated me in 2 other categories!

    AHHHHHHHH, sweet mystery of life, you have made me so happy today, Deb!

    Winning is hardly as important as knowing that people truly respect your feelings:)


Thanks for taking the time and effort to let your thoughts be known!
