Bahrain Blog Awards 2004

Homer over in Bahraini blog, thought he'd stir up a bit of controversy, and launch the first ever Bahrain Blog Awards 2004. In the spirit of things, get over there and start ticking the boxes. Up for grabs is a Tree of Life Award for best overall blog, Bahrain fort award for the best political blog, Ain Adhari Award for best daily blog, Alja7eth award for funniest blog, and Most notable commenter. Like Keith Barrat says, its just a bit of fun.

Here's my pitch (tongue in cheek); Bahrania's predictions for things that WON'T happen in 2005 :

If gambling wasn't haram I would've put money down on it.

Group hug everyone...luv ya really ;)

Lol, Bahrania. Besides Homer's awards there's another for best Muslim blogs from the alt.muslim site which is accepting nominations for its First Annual Brass Crescent Awards for the Islamic Blogsphere. There's a wide range of categories and if anyone's interested in nominating a site go to:

Nicer than nice? Didn't anyone read about my driving habits?

Don't let the Poker Face fool you; you see this is why gambling shouldn't be universally banned.

A good gambler learns
a) when to fold
b) how to control his emotions and
c) assess everything from all points of view

But you forgot:
Scorpio joins Al-Wefaq, or better, he goes back to London and joins Hizb ut Tahrir.

Strav picks up a hijabi, or a guy even.

Bahrania doesn't change her alias and blog name every 2 weeks.

I've been a member of an Islamic society all my life. It's called Bahrain.

As for repenting, don't paint me as an unbeliever please, even in jest. This is highly unfair, but I wouldn't say uncharacteristic of you.

Aaaaw I never understand why my jokes never go down too well :)

sorry for ruffling your feathers guys, but at least I was unfair on everyone in an equal way :) although Chan'ad got off easily!

oh I see.. if Bahrainia screws up, it's a joke, if someone else makes a joke, she deletes the comment.

Very nice.

Yes Mr Mahmoud, thats why it is Bahrania's blogspace. By the way since were predicting, one thing i dont see happening in 2005 is Bahrania buying that cookbook.

Mahmood, I don't think anyone in their right mind would see you as an unbeliever. You're good-natured soul completely discredits that in every way. That thought never crossed my mind by reading what Bahrainia posted. I truly don't think she intended it that way.

Butting out now.

I see an "Arab sensitivity" post on its way.

I will agree, this kind of ribbing goes a lot better around some sheeshah or over some shawarmas. (Maybe some tikka). When it's in conversation, it's called a roast, when it's in print it's called slander ;)

I guess its about time for another blogger meet-up

Thanks Changaize - I love you too. Good choice in opting for the anonymous post. Just a pity it's obvious who it is since you're repeating what you said in a previous signed post. Duh.

Clearly you're not the brightest but inviting me to contradict you on the evils of Al Wefaq's just plain stupid. What's the chances that their Brownshirts are back out in action tonight?

Posted by Blogger Scorpio @ 12/31/2004 02:13:00 PM #

Hey Scorpio, Sorry to disappoint you but the earlier comment is not mine. Seems like someone out there shares my original views. Also have no idea about the Al-Wefaq????

Bahraniat: i don't penny pick or whateva u call it anymore but that doesn't mean im living in luxury either.... secondly by posts online suck - grammar & vocab wise cos i dun bother writing proper english online....last but not least... you have stunning eyes!

Chanad: I'm not gay for you to say i'll pick up a guy... yes i'm into chicks with hijabs - more like chicks with shaala's bedouin style....either way... i'm not into dudes!

Bahraniat: how much is it to be an Al Wefaq excutive member? & do u folks have any tea parties & spa benefits?
