And now I've had some time to think about it, here are my selectees for the Awesome Dude Blogger award:
1. Debio, because she writes about her life in Dubai so well.
2. Darth Sardonicus, because he IS an awesome dude.
3. Enidd, a new addition to my blogroll, because she is a hoot, even when she's coping with awful things like getting mugged.
4. Snuffleupagus, because she persists in the face of so much adversity in trying to give her pupils a fair chance and good education;
5. VI, because she is my yang, meaning her life is completely different to mine, but it sounds like so much fun.
So go forth and spread the joy, guys.
