nerd factor ten.

Nope, this isn't a post about Omni magazine (nyuk, nyuk, nyuk. oh, Mr. Feschuk you're silly), but about the wonderful Canadian Blog Awards!

It seems through the stroke of luck that daveberta has made it to the second round in the BEST PERSONAL BLOG category of said awards! We also placed 21st in the BEST BLOG category with 29 votes! (beating out celebloggers like Warren Kinsella and grandinite.

You can see the results of the first round here. We moved on to the second round with 54 votes (compared to 112 for Jenandtonic, 96 for The Crazy Rants of Samantha Burns, 86 for Postmodernes Sprachspielen, and 57 votes for Postcards From The Mothership. We would also like to send a hello out to the Cassandra Pages, who got 53 votes and nearly knocked us out of the second round. Good showing, Cassie!

We would like to thank all those who got out and voted for us! We hope that all of you who voted for us in the first round will continue to show their support of this great Canadian blog in the Second Round (which will take place from December 3rd to 9th).

This of course, means that we need to step up our campaigning. So, here we go...

If davberta is elected BEST PERSONAL BLOG, we will reduce the GST by 3%.


we will cut income tax by $40-BILLION over 3-YEARS.

Why only 3 percent, Dave? I mean, come on, if you've got the power, why not can it all together?

(Remember when we didn't know what GST meant? Ah, those were the days.)

So, come on Dave, go big or go home. Campaign on a platform to SEND THE GST BACK TO THE SCREECHING PITS OF HELL FROM WHENCE IT CAME and even I'll vote for you.

P.S.: I used to read Omni when I was in highschool. How big a nerd am I?
