There is going to be a deck of bloggers! I'd like to go ahead and toss my name in for the Jack of Spades.
A jack is kind of like a knight. He's a warrior. He's the kind of guy who would best represent the blogger who brought you the weekly Carnival of Cordite. Plus, I am a Large Mammal. In fact, I have flirted with Playful Primate status a few times.
I'd actually have preferred Jack of CLUBS. But the rules say clubs are reserved for active milbloggers. While I am a veteran, and while I do a fair number of posts that relate to the military, I don't think I am focused enough on milblogging for that. Therefore, spades seems like the best alternative.
A spade is a tool. As we know, I was once named tool of the week. And a spade is multi-functional. It is both a farming implement and a trench warfare weapon. I like it.
So all you readers, I am asking you for one simple favor: echo this request! Get over to Aaron's and toss my name in there for the Jack of Spades!
I would also happily accept a 7 (a 7mm Remington Magnum, that is!).
And while you are at it, consider a few other choices:
Queen of Hearts should be SondraK. Why? Well, she has that nice heart-shaped... well, if you read her often, you know where I am going with that...
Queen of Diamonds should be Sarah K. Why? Because she is the IMAO t-shirt babe and is about to be married. Marriage = diamonds. Get it?
Speaking of IMAO, Frank J needs to be nominated for something. Here I am torn. On the one hand, he should be honored with a mighty face card, like a King or something. On other hand, since he aspires to be the top satirist of the blogosphere, maybe he should be a joker. I think it would be fitting if he and his nemesis, Scrappleface, got the two jokers of the deck.
And I support Countertop in his bid for the 2 of Diamonds!
Those are my thoughts. Feel free to nominate anyone you like for anything. Just make sure you actually do! Go and vote for Resistance is futile!
