more vote requests

I've asked for my own votes at the homeschool blog awards, and I've voted for some folks that deserve to win. For the most part, I'm not one to worry too much about other people. They can ask for their own votes.

Today I've decided to do things differently. You must believe it's not just the twins that are currently winning driving me to do this because I don't really even know any of these people. I know I likely shouldn't say it, but I wasn't aware that a blog and a link farm were the same thing, but I digress. Oh sure, they do have all those Bible verses, but they didn't write that shit either, and I'd wager they didn't even type it out. They probably just copied and pasted from the eBible, the little savages. Damn I can't stop digressing. Sorry, sometimes things just get to you, like a little piece of wood under a fingernail.

Cocking a Snook Too actually deserves to win the category the twins are leading in, the best teen homeschooling blog. She writes and writes well. She doesn't seem to have to reduce herself to artful cursery like I do, even if she does seem to have olive oil issues. Which, if she reads this, go with extra virgin first cold press. Those are the only words you need to know.

The boys need lunch, and I need a smoke, and I'm ending the plea with whatever you call that last little bit of push, like the NPR folks sounding a little desperate as the hour ends. Click homeschool blog award, then vote for Cocking a Snook Too. Don't take my word for it though. Visit the blog and see for yourself.

Link farm: you link to an article and profess how much you agree. Format below:

Reason 112 to homeschool (link to article about something offensive that happened at a public school 1300 miles away from blogger). "And that's why I homeschool!" Or large quotes from articles with the same kind of limp wristed attempt at writing. You get my drift.

Those twins - they have Jesus on their side, but it's still, for the most part, a link farm with fancy graphics, oh, and it should probably be the commercial or company blog catagory. All those ads for books and stuff, sheesh. I went against my self imposed HSBA boycott and voted for CAST because it does define what I would consider an award deserving blog.

do I now have to break the ban as well to see what CAST is?

LOL - I think CAST must be the acronym for Cocking a Snook Too. (thanks Doc!)
We call 'em Snook and Snook Too around here. I thought your endorsement was so wonderful that I posted it for Favorite Daughter in the comments -- she's been on the college campus all day, then at work and is in dance class now; dad's on his way to fetch her right now. She just turned 17 but she's been so busy reading, writing and dancing (and hanging around the theatre -- maybe we should start using that CAST acronym after all?) that she hasn't made time to learn to drive herself yet.

Thanks again, you didn't need to do that -- and that's what made it so great. Come get yourself a Sweet Waffle Kohn award!:)

Thanks for the ringing endorsement, always makes me feel validated. Luckily, I have no self-esteem tied up in winning this thing anymore, but I think, as the only-non Christian (as near as I can tell) and the front-running female (still) and arguably best speller (true) to do so would be delightful.
Again, thanks. If only because I intend to steal the phrase “artful cursery” and use it in my everyday life. People can’t possibly find me any odder than they do already.
