It's Up to You
It’s Up to You, 1958.
Oil on canvas. Gil Elvgren.

Lifecruiser has made it as a finalist in the Weblog Awards again! This year it were 4000 nominations and they choose only 500 finalist blogs, so it’s such an honor just to be one of them :-D

We’re placed in the category of “Best European Blog”, last year it was Best Diarist – or Diarreahist that I called it myself! *giggles*

Not only that, but Renny made it there too: Congratulations x millions!

We’re placed in the same category, which means that you have to choose between us two – if and when you decide to vote. Or vote different days for us if you can’t decide, since you’re allowed to vote every 24 hours in each category.

So, now Renny and I suddenly are competing together. I’ll not say against each other, because we’ll never be against each other in any way. This way it’s kind of win-win situation. No matter how it goes, I’m very happy for Renny too :-)

It’s funny, because normally I’m not at all into competitions. At all. Ask Mr Lifecruiser – who is exactly the opposite, he doesn’t rest until he has won! We have had many discussions about that…. *giggles*

It must be tough work to choose blogs – I don’t envy them that. Think about the magnitude of this task and many times very ungrateful too! Phew.

I do see it as a huge encouragement that the Weblog Awards has thought that I fit in as a finalist and I’ll do my very best to live up to the honor.

I will ENJOY the voting period (1-8 Nov) as much as possible, no matter what happens. My promise to myself this week is to simply have fun together – as usual!

Vote with your heart. May the best blogs win. ‘Nuff said.

Congratulations x millions to all the marvelous finalists!!!!

Take a look at the finalists announcements, maybe you find some other blog buddies there to vote for?

And some friday fun as usual:

“From a Southwest Airlines employee: Welcome aboard Southwest Flight XXX, to YYY. To operate your seatbelt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seatbelt, and if you don’t know how to operate one, you probably shouldn’t be out in public unsupervised. In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with two small children, decide now which one you love more.”

    I did not know we where both nominated before I came here and let me first say; Congrats with yours Captain – to me its an honor to be nominated in the same category as you! I do agree: we are not competing against, but together – as LifeCruisers always do. So as you say: Vote with your heart and since you may vote every 24 hours, you can all give us both a share up until the 8th of November.

    The most important thing is to have fun – blogsphere really is – and as a network evangelist who always says: ‘Make Blogs not Wars’, your one of the best blog friend of all Captain!

    Congrats Captain!

    I found out you’re in this from Renny’s blog, who I had already voted for. I tried to vote for you as well, but it wouldn’t let me, saying I had voted less than 24 hours ago. But I will get back to send you my vote as well :-)

    So sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. Hope you’re back up to snuff asap! Bests!!!
