I obviously don’t check my site counter referrals enough. If enthymeme hadn’t helpfully pointed out that some nice person (who? ‘Fess up!) apparently nominated my site for best Singapore blog at the 2003 Asia Weblog Awards, I would have blissfully continued neglecting this blog in favour of teaching myself Dancehall 101 via Soulseek downloads and this raggalicious thread at I Love Music, as I’ve been doing the last couple of days.

Now I’m under pressure. Of all times to get nominated for a blog award. I live in London for 4 years, writing about my swinging life, deep intellectual thoughts, and ubercool pursuits, and no nominations for anything. Then I return to Singapore, sink into depression, boredom and frivolity, with the nearest things I have to a life being reality TV (last week I even descended to watching Am I Hot, I kid you not) and making love to the Marine Parade library, and pow.

So. Huge sycophantic grin. If you can get past the fact that all the other nominees have, like, good design and good content and are actually complete, unlike my half-arsed straddle between blogging at syntaxfree and everything else still at ineffable because I have just been too crap to transfer stuff over, and if something about this blog perhaps appeals to you a little more than the other nominees do, and if the men in white coats agree to undo the leather straps once you’ve convinced them of all of the above, please vote for me.

If you don’t, I might just take that as a sign that my content doesn’t have enough mass appeal, and start posting pictures of furry baby animals. And porn. And furry baby animal porn. You have been warned.


  1. Laura: furry baby animals are one thing, but fast food porn? You’re obviously one sick puppy. :P

    Liv: Thank you! Will write to you real soon, I promise. Have managed to find my email mojo, and intend to congratulate you good and proper on your recent wonderful news!

  2. I voted too :) Mine was #2…

    (P/S: I haven’t forgotten about the eczema stuff. Various things have conspired to distract me along the way, but an email will be with you very soon :))

  3. If you start posting furry baby animal porn now then it might have an effect in time for the closing of the polls on Dec 28th.

  4. Laura: Anyone who remembers a link from an entry I made in February 2001 is clearly dysfunctional. Though the content of the link goes far in explaining your, er, persistence of memory…

    Nicholas: Yeah, I’ll get round to that at some point. Hopefully. Maybe. :)
