Thank you very much to whomever was kind enough to nominate me as Smartest Catholic Blog. It's nice, for a change, to be recognized for my brain-power and not my good looks!
I feel like I did when I ran the Army Ten Miler: confident I could go the distance, but equally confident that I would finish at the end of the pack. It's not that I don't think I'm smart; it's just that superlative ending...smartest? There are lots of other blogs out there - about 80 nominated for the same category as I - who are really smart all the time. Gosh, half of them have Latin blog names, a sure sign of higher intelligence! My brilliance shines forth about as often as my kitchen sink sparkles: at least once a week, but frequently no more than that, and, as proof that I'm not particularly intelligent all the time, I picked the same name as the most widely used online language program. Doh!
You have to register to vote, and can only vote once, but there are plenty of excellent blogs nominated for all the various categories. Again, I thank you, whoever you are, for your kindness. It is truly a humbling experience. And the pressure - oh, the pressure to write about something a bit more meaningful than the weather or my kids' reading lessons!
