Weblog Awards

Okay so I'm cruising my links and at Rocketboom I come across a mention of the 2005 Weblog Awards. Now I hadn't realized there were awards for blogs but apparently there are. I cruised on over there in my new Firefox 1.5 browser and discovered several different categories of blogs. After scoping a few within the categories I made some votes and even linked up a few new blogs. In the sidebar you'll now notice within the Photobloger section the new addition of Mute (some really nice stuff seen there). And down in the World's Beyond section I've dropped in Lifehacker, I believe this was in the technology blog section and it looked rather interesting and was not your everyday Slashdot crap, and Instapundit, I'm sure you'll love that one Crystal, I haven't really had time to do in-depth investigations into any of the sites that were over at the Weblog Awards but those were some of the ones that caught my eyes enough to get a link up. Next year I'll be sure and remind everyone to nominate me for a Weblog Award in the category of "Most Up To Date Blog" hehe. Well I finished watching the second part of the Triangle and things are beginning to become more and more wierdified (I create words when I feel like it). Let's just say the Navy is apparently involved in secret electromagnetic experiments that result in wormholes or possible the aligning of alternate realities with our own. In any case things are becoming more and more interesting and the Team may soon actually figure out what is going on.

Crystal, Family Guy is your saving grace for that night of TV (it's really the only thing I recall being on).

And now for something completely different. How many of you have heard of Sudoku? I was wandering Barnes and Noble a few weeks back and they had an entire table dedicated to books filled with Sudoku. For those who don't know it is a number placing puzzle. In any case I picked up a beginners book with 300 easy puzzles and now I'm an addict. So now along with caffeine and most forms of alcohol I'm also now addicted to these annoying puzzles that must be completed in groups of no less than two at a time or else you slowly go insane from detox.

Lastly, and probably the least important, I have begun background work on a story idea. The fruition of all my current labors will most likely never see the light of day, as the best writing always occurs in the dead of night, but I would like all of you to continually ask for updates (namely some kind of word count). I'm going to see about getting one of those NanoWriMo word counters that acts like a little stat tracker. I could add it over into the sidebar and that would push me to always be working on the writing in order to update that and not have you folks breathing down my neck about it. Anyways, off to do some playing hope you enjoyed the read and now for your moment of zen.

"Western society has accepted as unquestionable a technological imperative that is quite as arbitrary as the most primitive taboo: not merely the duty to foster invention and constantly to create technological novelties, but equally the duty to surrender to these novelties unconditionally, just because they are offered, without respect to their human consequences." ~Lewis Mumford

I watch mostly for Simpsons, then Family guy and American Dad is just kind of noise in the background.

As for the blogs I shall have to check them out and see if any of them are worth reading nwo and again.

Finally Sudoku was something my husband discovered a while back and toys with now and then. I guess I am not to into it because I trhink it gets old for me, but then I never really liked number games that much.
