In all humility, I really cannot imagine why but her post explains how it works.
Apparently there is a requirement that you list five quirky facts about yourself and then proceed to nominate your own five potential winners.
Not an easy thing to do, because the minute you try to name five facts about yourself you instantly become the least interesting person on the planet, and supremely self-conscious too.
Nevertheless, for what it's worth, here are my five:
1 I am probably the only person in Britain who has never ordered a take-away of any description.
2 I have enormous respect for people who have 'done things'with their lives, but do not number them among
3 I have nothing but contempt for those who exploit other people for financial or personal gain, but also
secretly despise those who allow themselves to be so treated.
4 I laugh like a drain at QI but sit stony-faced through virtually all stand up comedy.
5 I have a 'thing' about eyes, and firmly believe they say far more than words if you learn how to read them.
There are a huge number of blogs I read regularly, not all of which I would nominate for a number of reasons, but, after some thought this is my list:
"The Filey Gardener" Full of everyday wisdom without being cloyingly homespun
"One Cannot have too large a Party" An American perspective on life through the eyes of a warm and loving Episcopalien Minister.
"Trying to be me" Reflections on the need to try to stay up-beat and positive while gallantly swimming against the tide of a problem filled life,
"Vic the Vicar" A varied and usually good -humoured account of life as a clergyman in a busy parish.
"The Vernacular Curate/Vicar" Can't remember what he calls himself now. A bursting with life day-to-day struggle by one, slightly barmy clergyman, his problems, successes, occasional battles seen with often piercingly clear insight.
I could add at least another five, but rules is rules.
Read and enjoy.
