Mouse and Trowel Nominations

PATSP has been nominated for multiple Mouse & Trowel awards. Which is kind of weird. I mean, I'd thought maybe one nomination.

But instead, I'm up for:

Best Container Gardening Blog
Best Indoor Gardening Blog
Best Writing1
Post of the Year (for the Zombie Apocalypse list)

Obligatory Gazania of Celebration. Gazanias are the official celebratory flower of PATSP since, like, forever.

Or maybe it should be we. "We" are up for four awards. I mean, there's only the one of me, but it sounds classier if it's plural, right? More meaningful somehow? Or does that just make me sound like a crazy person? (Or, more accurately: does that make us sound like a crazy person?2)

The competition on Indoor Gardening Blog is going to be especially painful, as I know (in the internet sense) three out of the four non-PATSP blogs on the list: Plant Zone, Indoor Garden-er, and Nature Assassin. Even more painful is my sudden realization that, of my previous ten posts, only two of them were even remotely related to indoor gardening.


(In my defense: it's spriiiiiiing, with all the flowers outside that other people have worked so hard to grow for me to take pictures of! I can't disappoint those people by not photographing their plants, can I?)

Anyway. Final voting goes through 17 May. Be careful about impulsive clicking: once you vote, it appears that you can't change your vote. Or maybe you can, and I just can't figure out how.


1 (!!!)
2 People? Persons? We're all agreed on "crazy," right?

I have to admit I haven't read any of the other blogs, but I'm sure yours is the best by far!

Congrats. Maybe since you have so many nominations you can give me one. I will give you one strip of gold-pressed latinum.

Benjamin Vogt:

No deal. I want your sanity. (You did just say you were going to be giving it away soon, yes?)

1. Thank you for letting me know that I am a finalist!!

2. I wish I could not vote for you. But really. Damnit. I like reading your blog.

3. I nominated you for several of those categories, so it's really my own fault that we will have to fight to the pain to win.

4. To the pain... Is that from a movie? Princess Bride?

Congrats, Mr. Subjunctive!

And I'll just consider that plural a form of the Royal "We".
