5 reasons that My Daily List hasn't been daily for a few days.

1. I ate a 5 pound bag of sugar and I've been in a coma.

3. I was walking a picket line until I spoke to my Bloggers Local 120 union steward and discovered that I don't belong to a union and that my union steward is really just a guy who walks his dog down my street every morning.
4. Middle managers have to deal with the idiots below them, the idiots above them, and the idiots standing next to them.

5 great bloggers

Hey, look, I won something. Frank at I Probably Don't Like You just happened to be looking at blogs that compared Fred Astaire to Kanye West and this blog was deemed the best in that business. I am both remarkably deserving of this honor and humble in my acceptance but now I must spread the love. It seems like everyone at Humor Bloggers dot com has already won the award which only make sense. Nearly all of those people are knowledgeable of subject/verb agreement and many of them are writing the finest poop humor you'll find anywhere on the web. So, given their acknowledged success, I am going to single out interesting bloggers who are good friends of My Daily List.

1. From the great state of Minnesota, we have Michael River's Blog

2. From the Motor City, Big Mark and Star Like Grains of Sand in My Pocket

3. Another Minnesotan, Jeff and The View From My Cloud

4. From the great socialist state of Massachusetts (I think), Melody Singer

5. From Cape Town, Scott formerly Husband's Anonymous now Squid Squirts

Congratulations to these five whose blogs are actually interesting and not a bunch of soulless lists. Now you five must also pass along the love. Here are the details:
  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
