So I was checking out how we were doing on the Jewish Israeli Blog Awards voting when I discovered that we were actually getting our butts kicked in the Best Overall Blog Category by none other than Meryl Yourish. So I went over to check it out and while she did urge her visitors to vote:
Jewlicious is kicking my butt again. My faithful re-voters can’t re-vote. It’s one person, one vote. That means some others of you are going to have to step up to the plate. C’mon, my “invisibles.” You don’t have to register, just vote! Best Overall, and Best Post (Meirav Was Two).
I am convinced that what really tipped the scales in her favor is her latest post about and accompanying picture of her cat Gracie. See Gracie fell asleep on Meryl’s black leather sofa on the spot usually occupied by Tigger allowing Meryl to get an awesome pic … anyways, read the post. That Gracie is both a little scamp and a total cutie! We totally cannot compete against stuff like that.
I mean, ever since the departure of my beloved Lhasa Apso Rocky, I have not had a pet. Laya has this mutt called Oscar (figures) which even she doesn’t like, T_M may or may not have a pet – security reasons preclude our ability to reveal that fact, Alli lives in a dorm and Muffti out and out hates cats. So Jewlicious has suffered from a conspicuous absence of cute posts featuring adorable puddy tats. For the more cynical amongst you, remember that the Internet was built on the dissemination of cute cat pictures. Well, that and porn, but you get my point.
So, in perfectly French form, I am announcing Jewlicious’ abdication. We cannot compete against the likes of Gracie and G*d help us if Meryl gets a cute pic of Tigger up as well (perhaps sunning himself next to a window? Oops. Never mind, already been done in kittypalooza). Thus I urge all our faithful readers who have not voted yet to visit the Jewish Israeli Blog Awards page and vote for Meryl.
Do it for Gracie!
