In the words of my wonderful Aunt Doris: I do and do and do for you people, and this is the thanks I get.

2011 CANNONBALL CATHOLIC BLOG AWARDS™©! ta da
Here is where you come in, dear readers. First, I need someone to nominate "Kissing the Leper" for Best Under Appreciated Blog. (Do it right now, before you forget. Go ahead; I'll wait.)
Then, vote. Vote a lot. Pretend you're in Chicago and follow the "vote early and vote often" rule.
By the way, there is no monetary gain in this for me. There's actually very little prestige either, but I do get to display a wicked Cannonball icon on my website for the next 12 months.
If you're one of those people who enjoys my blog, consider nominating and/or voting. Today, tomorrow and the next day.
