Well, gee. This turned out to be more work than I had really anticipated. Well worth it, though. Turned out to be a fairly interesting exercise.

You guys picked almost all of my favorites. I only had to nominate three entries myself. Interestingly, you also nominated quite a few that I didn’t think were anything to write home about.

Anyway, here are the links, as promised:

January 1: just a girly dog at heart, nominated by Lyle

January 14: black like me, nominated by Dexter

January 21: tennis, anyone?, nominated by Seva

January 26: Dogs and General(ization)s, nominated by Skye, who seems to have an unhealthy interest in Frisbetarianism

March 8: bacon in the treetops, nominated by Seva for reasons that I cannot quite fathom, myself

March 26: the treat-pocket lady, nominated by Pretty Boy Floyd

May 13: DON’T BUY! DON’T BREED! STOP YELLING, AND GET A LIFE!, nominated by Dexter

June 30: Atonement, nominated by Skye

July 16: high tide and green carcasses or death in the morning, nominated by Lyle

July 17: DETH to PETA, nominated by Lyle, who knows a good acronym when he sees one

Apparently, nobody else liked this next one, but it’s one of my favorites.

July 23: The truth can finally be told, nominated by Dexter

July 28, Here begins the Spiney Norma(n) saga: Spiney Norman, nominated by Vincent, Seva, and Francis Rocks

July 29, More Norma: Poor, poor, pitiful me, nominated by Vincent, Seva, and Francis Rocks

July 30, Norma again: But these girls won’t let me be, nominated by Vincent, Seva, and Francis Rocks

August 1, the penultimate Norma entry: It's over, it's over, it's OOOOOOOOOOOver -Roy Orbison, nominated by Vincent, Seva, and Francis Rocks

August 2: Free to Good Home, I believe this was nominated by Captain, though I am not entirely sure this is the entry he meant

August 7, This is it for Spiney Norma: Some enchanted evening…, nominated by Vincent, Seva, and Francis Rocks

August 16: Signs & Wonders, nominated by Skye, who wanted anything having to do with Frisbetarianism to get in

August 17: Pre-emtive Cerebrectomy, nominated by Seva

August 30, I think this is my personal favorite: Smoking or Non-Smoking?: Adventures in Bipedal Humor, nominated by Captain and Bruschi

September 1: An Appeal for Funds, nominated by Seva

September 29: Confessions of an Underachiever, nominated by Seva

November 8: DETH on the Home Front, eh?, nominated by Seva

November 22: Dexter Goes Postal, nominated by Skye

December 1: The Heartbreak of PDD, nominated by Seva and Lyle

December 18: Weighty Matters, nominated by Sully

December 25: The Mark of the Beast, nominated by Midnight Star

On another matter entirely, my OFA certificate arrived in the mail while we were in Oregon. It’s official. Everybody agrees. I have excellent hips.
