Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

Sg Blog Awards?

Last night as I was drifting off to sleep, in that twitchy time where ideas come to me but I'm just too tired to get up and do anything about them, I thought to myself, 'Why not have a Singapore blog awards? How hard could it be? You could create categories that would be fun, and categories tat would be serious. 'Best Beng Blog', 'Best Depressing Post' 'Blog Most Likely To Incur The Wrath of PAP', 'Blog Most Plagiarized by the MSM', 'Best Blog With the title 'SomethingStickyThisWayComes' and stuff like that. It would be a hoot.

And then I realized A) I'm lazy, B) I have no programming skills and don't really know how to set it up, and C) I'm lazy. And so I went to sleep, MachineBoy's head buried comfortingly in my armpit.

But when I woke up this morning, the idea was still buzzing around in my noggin, along with 'gotta pee', 'need caffiene' and 'gimme a cigarette'.

So if any of my clever cever readers have any ideas on how to proceed, post a comment or email me at mercermachine@gmail.com.

don't bother, mercer.

really, with the country the way it is, it'll just turn into a frenzied popularity contest with the "celebrity crew" whoring themselves desperately to the public, taking all the titles, and parading them triumphantly to their adoring fans.

Blog awards... are for children.

Further suggestions for categories:

Most Teenager Blog Not Written By An Adult

Least Navigable Blog

Least Updated Blog (preferably at least one year without updating)

Best Political Blog Written By A Singaporean Not Residing In Singapore (actually, this could be a serious category)

In the spirit of all things (allegedly) Singaporean, more than 50% of the categories will be walkovers (i.e. only one nominee deemed 'suitable') and voting for the remaining categories will be closely tagged so that every vote can be traced to the voter.
