How to know you’re winning

I wasn’t going to post about this because it is just so not done to blow one’s own trumpet, but Bomber in a post at Tumeke has granted me the title of Chaotic Good Blogger of 2012.

Which is kinda awesome if you know how much of a geek I am.  If you don’t, you may not have been paying attention.

The truly awesome thing, though, is the second comment on the post:

Wow.some heavy misses there.
QOT is kind of irelevant because nice girls don’t kill foetuses these dayswithout goo dreason. .And “Not Nice”, girls don’t count. So that is a big wide cultural miss. ‘Tis my opinion that Russell Brown is a left wing circle jerker. Other than that, your judgementr is right on. Keith Ng. One of the best invetigative journos of 2day.

I can’t entirely make out what Monique Angel is saying there, but according to her blog she’s a Pete George fan – and Pete George doesn’t understand how D&D alignments work (warning: link contains Pete George) which is also good for a giggle.

But thanks for the hate, Monique!  Interesting point, though: a “big wide cultural miss”?  According to Monique’s blog she’s living in San Francisco, so maybe she’s missed that being a stroppy sweary bitch isn’t actually that unusual among Kiwi Gen Ys.

Anyways, I digress.  Like it says in the headline:  you know you’re winning when people feel the need to whinge about your pro-choice-ness on fairly lighthearted posts on Tumeke, of all places.  If you really were irrelevant, they wouldn’t care so much.  (Though not so much they pay attention to what they’re typing.)

I hate to keep posting, but OH MY GOD SQUEE

I mean, I’d just be happy due to the fact that it’s not vulgar sex terms (the search term two days previous is “samba dancers fucking”, HOPE YOU HAD FUN TRYING TO FIND THAT HERE, WEIRDOS) but ZOMG someone actually googled for me! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Somebody fetch the smelling salts and the fainting couch stat, I’m doing the total girly-giddy thing over here.

Aw, shucks

Never let it be said I’ll ignore a good meme (or praise, either!). I’ve been tagged by Deborah (and others) at The Hand Mirror, and darnit if that doesn’t make me go *squee* inside, because I bloody love THM.
