Comments award


It is highly gratifying to see so many humorous and insightful comments on this blog. To celebrate this, one commentator, selected at random from a handful of the single comments I like the best, will win an award. At the end of August, that person can choose between $100 cash or his choice of a photo or drawing of mine printed at 40x60 cm, signed.
I call it a celebration instead of a contest, because obviously there can't be a single "best comment". This is just a gesture.

I think this is unique in blogging history. :) It's a neat idea, though. Have fun choosing!

That'll be the hard part!

Even if I dont win, I think its an honour just to be nominated.;)

An intriguing idea to say the least.

Eolake,

Perhaps we should co-ordinate a chat room one evening? Maybe on Yahoo Messenger - if people use that.

Adam,

Have you taken time zones into consideration? "Evening" isn't simultaneous in the USA and Lebanon. Not to mention we might have somme Aussie friends. ;-)

Old French proverb.

Besides, I have to back Eolake on this one. Power and communications in my country notwithstanding, I write far better with a little time to gather my many thoughts. Which is why they don't always come out as pure gibberish. ;-)

The problems isn't simultaneity so much as spontaneity, I think.

Shame on you!

Adam,

Could you insult me a little more, please?
I'm going through a masochistic phase, and good help is hard to find. :-)

(How's that for spontaneous?)

Adam Czarnowski said...

Pascal,

The masochistic Pascal said "Insult me more, please!" and the sadistic Adam said, unapologetically: "No!"

I was thinking of posting absolute nothing until the end of August -- for as they say, silence is a scary sound.

But, now that I've posted this I realise I have blown it.

eolake said...

Better to realize it early!
Silence may be scary, but it don't win nothing. :)

Pascal R said...

Adam,

That was really mean, man.

Boy, I hate nice, pacific people!
Don't count on ME to come and whip your sorry back when you're feeling lonely! ):-P
