Once again I am honored to be nominated for the weekly Watcher of Weasels award for best (non-Council) blog post.
I was nominated by The Watcher himself, the mysterious character who changes his or her appearance every couple of years, not unlike Doctor Who. At the moment, he closely resembles Soccer Dad.
The nominated post actually has a shot, I think: "The Staggering Quality of the Very Ordinary." It was one of my better posts of the week, although I was proud of a few.
By the way, for those who are wondering how well my foray into the money-making side of blogging goes, I am now up to having earned $4.37. If you are in the mood to order a book right now and let me have a cut, just do the Amazon search here:
Books ordered through this webpage include A Clockwork Orange, The Picture of Dorian Grey, Six Days of War, and someone who found an amazing bargain and ordered 10 copies of Myths, Illusions, and Peace: Finding a New Direction for America in the Middle East.
I guess this is now an open thread....
