The Brillante Weblog Premio 2008

A few weeks ago, our friend Alice at An American in London kindly awarded us with The Brillante Weblog Premio 2008. Alice is awesome, and not just for giving us a nifty award that is possibly in Spanish and looks like a screenshot from an episode of The Adventures of the Gummi Bears. Anyhow, go read her blog.

The rule is that we have to pass on the award to blogs that we follow and that deserve recognition, like a chain letter that the recipient is actually glad to receive and isn't sent from a fictitious church with a menacing sounding name like The Church of St. Vitriol Without Entrails. I believe the original rules for this prize entail passing it along to 7 other blogs — while it is true that I follow 7 other blogs regularly (but probably not many more than that - hey we got full-time jobs, what can we do?), one is Alice's blog, a couple others have already received The Brillante Weblog Premio, and some don't need an award because they're too well-known already. So 7 has shrunk to 3, but these are 3 goodies.

And the award goes to...

New Yorker in London
- One of our favorite American expat in London blogs. Her recent pictures of a warm Summer evening in San Francisco and the brief mention of Pancho Villa made us long for, well, a warm Summer evening in San Francisco and Pancho Villa (deluxe burrito al pastor, refried black beans, hot salsa, sour cream, and a watermelon agua fresca, thank you very much).

Life in a Nutshell - Deserves an award simply for saying this: "I don't know why I'm entertained by trying to sneak up on farm animals. Those sheep were so on to me though." Also, anyone creative and brave enough to post a lolpregnancytest must be prize-worthy.

Grumblemouse - Even if the Grumblemouse has a fancy new job, we want him to keep grumbling. This is a prize being used as a prod. Hey, I got an idea, grumble about the new job!

Pass it on!
