I'd like to thank the academy

Right! I'm today's Blog of Note (which excites me rather more than it should!) so now's the perfect time to welcome any new readers I may have gathered. Hello, everyone! Introduce yourself in the comments section, I'm sure my regular readers will make you feel welcome.

I'm rather flustered just at the moment, so rather than witter on about myself, I'll just link to some of the old posts I'm proudest of. Cheating? WHY YES!

Words are not enough (or too much)

So there I was in my bikini

  5. Oh brilliant. I really like your blog. It's interesting. You write on subjects worth thinking about rather than just using your page for a diary on all things strange or scandalous. bravo. ^_^ I've added you to blogs I follow.

    (p.s. come visit me at http://iamthevengeance.com - you and I aren't so different blog style-wise)

  36. Melissa! It surprises me that anyone would want to read the blog of a girl who basically gently berates Ben for most of the things he does. It's all done lovingly though ;) Funnily enough, even I had that "hey that sounds familiar" moment when I saw my blog's name on Twitter... *facepalm*

    AixelA: Overwhelming, gratifying, wonderful. Went out for sushi and ice-cream with my boyfriend to celebrate.

  39. Hi Anna. How exciting to be Blog of Note - only the best ones are chosen! Love your blog -especially the one where you were locked out in your bikini - thank goodness you have the body for it or it might have been an even scarier story! Have just started blogging myself (www.emilybassin.blogspot.com) so come and have a look. I'm a full-time mother of two so it concerns all aspects maternal, but with a humourous twist. Keep blogging - I look forward to your next post...
