I spent my school years with my nose frequently buried in a book and as a result wore glasses early (& contact lenses too late). I was in honors classes, AP classes, had football players threatening me for my editorials in the school newspaper, never got invited to those "my parents are out of town for the weekend" parties, took my gay friend to the homecoming dance (both years), ate a brown bag lunch almost every single day and even rode the school bus home the last day of senior year. My entire life I've been a dork.
So I suppose I should be thrilled to be considered cool enough to be part of the blogger in-crowd and be lobbying for your vote.
But I'm not and I won't. I realize this is probably intended to be fun, and perhaps I'm being ornery, but I don't like it. I've always believed that one of the most amazing things about the gunblog community is the lack of elitism and the "more pro-2A voices, the better" mentality. Popularity contests can defeat that purpose, especially when even the least well-known blogger can have an impact in the fight for our Second Amendment Rights. And, to be honest, even though I can throw together a seriously enjoyable Gunnie Prom, it doesn't mean I should be crowned queen of anything - I've gained blog fame mostly in spite of myself. If anything I should probably be voted "Most Likely to Blog Exclusively About Nail Polish and Cats, with a Gun Sitting on the Desk Next to Her Laptop."
I suppose I should also say that it's an honor to have been nominated to be one of the bloggers asked to give a company (albeit a very reputable company with an exceedingly clever marketing department and excellent prices on ammo) free advertising.
But, umm...no. Nice try, though.
