An Award, a Thank You, and a Panic Attack
I would like to thank Blue Gal for choosing me as the recepient of one of her "Thinking Blogger" Awards.
This is what she said:
"Did you know that Palestinian activists planted trees for each of the Virginia Tech victims? You would if you read this gal. As she says in her profile: "Since I often find myself caught between anti-Arab racism and arab reactionary politics, both of which threaten to gag me, I'm raising my voice against both, hoping in the process to contribute an improvised note to a progressive Arab blogosphere." Unique voice? Ya think? There are few blogs about which I would say, "the world needs this blog." This is one of them."
I was really flattered especially after checking Blue Gal's site and seeing what an awsome thinking gal she is herself.
But then I had this panic attack, for I learned of the award just as I was getting ready to go to a Ricky Martin concert! Oh no, I thought, now the award will be taken away from me! That's why I've been keeping sort of quiet about it.
More later. Heading out to a Mjaddara contest! Got to get the vote out!
