Me? A Superior Scribbler?!


Well, according to Gine at Not at ALL What You Thought, I am. She says my "shameless novel title and shameless writing about his daughter and his life is always refreshing." Thanks, Gine. I'm honored.

Apparently, there are responsibilities involved with the Superior Scribbler Award. Here they are:

*Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.

*Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.

* Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this award, which explains The Award.

* Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit This Post(same as above or IBID) and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!

*Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.


Well, as you all know, I'm pretty new to this brave, new world, and most of my blog interests were concentrated on politics because of the season. I'm sure if I were to do this later, my list would be a bit more diverse, but here's my list:

The Field Negro is one of the funniest takes on politics, race, and culture I've come across so far. I absolutely love the man. He has me cracking up almost daily. Field makes me proud to be Jamerican.

Devis with Babies has a great strip called Brown Girls. It's very funny. I like what they have to say otherwise as well.

The Cool Justice Report, run by Andy Thibault, is more like a left-wing news portal. Andy picks some very interesting stuff.

I don't know if Margaret and Helen are actually the two, old broads they claim to be, but they have me laughing constantly. And that's the important thing, right?

I am totally in love with the "clean and articulate" sisters over at PostBourgie. They're incredibly insightful, their analysis is spot-on, and, as a black, working-class, intellectual, I find myself coming from, if not the same place, definitely a similar one.

Wow, at first I thought I wouldn't be able to come up with five. Now, I realize I could come up with more. But I guess you could look at my blog roll for that. Anyway, thanks again, Gine. I'll try to keep it up. Right now, Poohbutt's into the garbage bags. I guess I need to stop her before she figures out how to open the Pine-Sol bottle.

Mir,

Bill
