Our First Award!

See that little plaque thingy there? We're very proud. Oh so very! Thank you thank you thank you to Kelly Spitzer for such an acknowledgement. It's very nice to think we make others think.

And so, in the spirit of the award's origins (found here), we are passing the synapse-powered torch on to five other blogs and their bloggers that make us think, and which we hope you'll enjoy as well. And now this is the part that scares me, friends. This is where I, as a representative of a Thinking Blogger Award site, try to make links happen. Okay, let's do it!

In no particular order, the Canadian Writers' Collective bestows the Thinking Blogger Award to the following:

The Evitable by Martin Heavisides
It's consistently engaging and very thoughtful on a wide variety of subjects- from a great jazz review to a comment on erosion of jurisprudence to a critique of recent gorefest horror movies. Plus a few poems every once in awhile.

blog off by Sass
“Trim, but not skeletal, poetic, but not effusive.” A blurb from a Cormac McCarthy book that could just as easily describe this blog.

The World's Fair by David Ng and Benjamin Cohen
Very science-y. Very funny. Very informative. David Sukuki wishes he could be this hot and this cool. (Global-warming jokes, anyone?)

Writing Neuroses by Kay Sexton
A Pushcart-nominated writer from the UK, Kay also writes for the UK's premier sustainability journal, Green Futures.

Dadsmacker by C Monks
Very fresh and always hilarious, Mr. Monks rocks the cradle and then some. Me, I'm in love with the whole Offsprung familia, but we can't give an award to everyone over there. We trust he will share it nicely with the rest of his Offsprung siblings.

Champagne and cigars all around, everyone. Have a lovely weekend!
