One Year

I had played as much poker as I could take. I had fought my way through World War II a half dozen times on several different game platforms. I had conquered Rome. I was even bored with porn.

It was August, 2005, and my computer-based entertainment options were dwindling.

It was late. I poured a Gin & Tonic and clicked on my pal Dave's blog. I then clicked on the blog of another friend of mine and slowly an idea began to blossom.

I recalled the "Ass Page." Back in law school in the mid 90s, we had an antequated UNIX-based email something-or-other. (I'm sure Carl will explain it to us when he returns from Japan.) Anyway, you could "finger" your class mates and read their latest status. There was a comments field that could be updated, and update I did. I called it the "Ass Page." Folks actually logged in to read it. I'm pretty sure it got me laid a couple of times.

So, there I sat last August, reading blogs and remembering the ass page. "Well, everyone else is doing it, why can't I?" I thought to myself. That was almost one year ago. The anniversary is coming up, and I figure I should do something to mark the occasion. Therefore, I plan to award the first-ever Ginny Awards next week. I will list the categories below. I need all of you to help pick the winners. You can post your suggestions here. You can also email them to me at my myspace account.

Here are the categories for the year August, 05 to August,06:

1. Best G&T Lounge Post
2. Worst G&T Lounge Post
3. Best Comment
4. Favorite Commentator
5. Most Hated Commentator
