Fifth Annual Blog Awards – and the nominees are…spaceblog of Perth Western Australia

sbispf Go away for a week and find spiceblog’s on the Fifth Annual Weblog Awards for best Aus & NZ Blog. Welcome to those who swung by down here as a result, feel free to have a browse around. I’ll just be over here if you need any help. No! We’re all out of that, do you like octopus?

This is kind of surprising as I could point to at least 15 notable omissions in the shortlist. It’s all a bit like Swan Draft getting nominated for best beer in the world. I mean I’m pleased and all but you know, it’s just wrong when someone gets in just for their manly good looks and awesome thighs. Feel so damned guilty.

Ganbatte to fellow fooders Chocolate & Zucchini and noodlepie in their respective continental categories – go the gourmands! Good luck also to fellow West Australian Kitta – either way it’s the best thing for WA since the America’s Cup*.

Big thank you(s) for the nominations, there’s much fingerpointing as to who’s responsible, but yeah get out there and V O T E before the 31st of January 3rd of February and it’ll be hot bun cakes all round.

* Hey and go! Karen Cheng.

    Hi Anthony,

    Maybe we all threw your name into the hat, along with Graham’s. I think you deserve to be recognized for your blogging efforts, you do an excellent job. I can’t remember exactly how I came across your blog. Can’t even remember the first post I read. But yours has been a daily read for a while now.

    Hope to learn more about cooking and Australia from you in ’05. Also love the humor and wit! Good luck!

    Hey Reid

    Thanks mate. Very appreciative of those who nominated me but consistently grateful of regular commenters like yourself. Just kinda plugging away here having a bit of fun so the hooplah kind of surprises me. Wit? As they say, you’re half right ; )

    Cheers for you too but you can’t have a rant and then not have a rant. What did you get? Is it contagious?

    …not to say that I’m so blase about the whole thing that you shouldn’t bother voting if you haven’t already. Go on off you go, I’ll still be here when you come back.

    Hmm. “Hot bun cakes all round”. Interesting choice of phrase from the man in cerise spandex trousers… I’ll vote for you *despite* that generous offer!

    complete disillusionment over awards overall of child santos up until now, but as adult santos have niggling obligation to fight establishment by actually voting for blogs i think deserve to win
    can’t get through to bloggies *ever*=wonky tech giving me a way out of my discomfort?

    Before I can vote I’ll need a few more photos and information.

    Have you got a rear view of that photo?
    Is that a gourmet lunch pack down the front of those tights or just a huge man bulge?
    Are those tights sort of bell bottoms?
