Now I get to run -- from the issues!

I don't know how I got nominated for such a thing, but I want to thank whoever was nice enough to do it -- as well as everyone who voted for Classical Values in the Best Marauding Marsupial Blog election. Frankly, I don't think I am in the same league with many of the blogs there, and I am still new to this (which is why I didn't even know I'd been nominated until I saw my blog's name there today).

And the only reason I saw that I was nominated was because I went there to vote for my dear blogfather -- Alphecca -- who was nominated for the Best Large Mammal Blog category. (Yes, like the Romans I believe in shameless nepotism, which is why I also voted for my blog-grandfather -- if there is such a term.)

Obviously, I have had no time to campaign, nor have I been able to seek any endorsements! I don't even know whether it is appropriate for me to solicit votes at my own blog (because I am not sure I even want to run against some of the fine blogs pitted by fate to be "running" against me).

But if you like my blog, I have one request: VOTE FOR MY BLOGFATHER.

Please do it now.

I voted for both of you, Eric and Jeff.

You are very kind, and I thank you.
