On the Campaign Trail

| | Comments (13)

No, no... don't worry. In my ongoing quest for a career I've NOT decided to venture into politics, so you needn't start making plans to leave the country a.s.a.p.

I do need your vote, though.

It turns out that I must know someone influential somewhere in South Africa, because I've been nominated in three categories (but one is for the design of this blog, which I had nothing to do with, so that nomination is rightfully hers) for the first ever South African Blog Awards.

If you're so inclined, you can please vote for me, once a day until this Friday, March 4, over here.

Please, please PLEASE don't make me beg!

UPDATE: Final day! I've changed the link after some confusion and it should now take you straight to the voting page instead of the page where all the nominees were just listed and linked. You can cast your vote until 5 p.m. EST today!

Regular posting continues below.

Red Dahling,
I voted last week before all of the begging began.
If you don't win,it's because you didn't start begging earlier.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
