Hate is Such a Strong Word

One year gone by, and what a year it has been. Brad and Angelina have spawned; Dick Cheney has brought peace to the Middle East; and I have achieved my goal of drinking my weight in scotch.

One Year. 12 months. 365 days.

Well, it looks like many of you have carefully gone back and reviewed in-depth the archived posts from the Lounge. Several of you have posted your suggestions for the proposed Ginny awards in the never-ending comments. Many of you have privately emailed me with your thoughts. Oh, and to Roslyn from Winnemucca, thanks for emailing the topless photos...

So, without further ado, here are the awards!!

Well, actually, tonight is only the first award. See, there is a ton of material to mine here. So, I'm exploiting the topic and will spread the awards out over the next five days. Starting with the "Most Hated" Commentator tonight. I will finish up with "Best Post" on Thursday just before I head out to California.

So, now, with no further ado, here is the Ginny Award for "Most Hated Commentator."

This was a very difficult category because by definition, I want to spotlight the biggest thorn in everyone's side. Yet, I don't want to actually pay tribute to a completely hateful person. This means For instance, that Rebecca, who ever the hell she really was, will not get the award. Yes we all hated her, but we didn't hate her in any sort of friendly or amicable fashion.

No, we really just hated her, and eventually she went away.

So, this award, I think, goes to the person we all really just love to hate. Someone who is fun to hate. Someone that causes us to smile while we are hating them. Certainly Inog (Carl) was considered for this award with his long self-indulgent travelogues. Abestis too, although now he lurks under other names.

In the end, however, the near unanimous vote was clear. ( I think she even voted for herself.) The first-annual most hated commentator is: Princess Leah.

Congratulations Princess! I mean really, this category was created for you . Are you really surprised??

Log in tomorrow to find out who was named "Favorite Commentator!"


  1. I demand a recount!

    I think I speak for the other people who use the anonymous moniker when I say that I'm a little disappointed it wasn't one of us. But, really, none of us deserved it as much. Maybe when one of us gets pregnant and has a lobotomy, then we'll have a shot.

  3. Wasn't Rebecca's name Rachel??

  4. Rebecca, Rachel, who knows... It's not like anyone paid attention.

    I'm fairly sure Rachel/Rebecca/Retard loved Jesus.

  6. Really - there was no suspense waiting for the envelope on this one...

    This blog sucks.

  11. Gosh, I'm so honored. This comes as a complete surprise. You like me, you really like me. Oh, wait...hmmm....
    Now, as for the pregnancy thing, so noted. By the way, the offspring is terribly cute. I should post pictures. But I must take exception to the lobotomy comment. I mean, seriously, at least I passed the bar without having to take it twice...or dare I say three times? Glass houses, folks....


Be compelling.
