You guys rock! (a belated thank you note)

What with all the preparations for the Shavuot holiday (those in the diaspora are still doing a penalty lap celebrating their second day) and my , erm, digestive problems, I never got around to properly thanking you all for voting for treppenwitz in the JIBs (Jewish and Israeli Blog) Award finals.

First of all, the fact that so many of you continue to slog through my posts day after day is a rewarding vote of confidence all by itself.   But to win a gold medal in three categories and a silver in a fourth is just, well.... you guuuuuys!

For the record, treppenwitz was nominated in four categories: 'Best Large blog'; 'Best Personal Blog'; 'Best Slice of Life in Israel Blog'; and 'Best Overall blogpost'.  Here's how we (yes WE) did:

Bestlargeg  Bestpersonalblogg

Bestsliceoflifeisraelblogg  Bestoverallposts

There are so many truly productive things you could be doing with your lives.  Thank you for opting to waste a little of your valuable time over here. 

Your Host,

David 'Trepp' Bogner

Honestly, all the thanks goes to you - for providing intelligent, entertaining and thought-provoking writing nearly every day.. Taking the 5 minutes to go and show our appreciation (by voting) is nothing compared to how much effort you put into your blog. Thanks again and congratulations!!!

Congratulations! I know it takes time & effort to put together a blog as good as yours - thanks for doing that!

Your accolades are well-deserved. It's nice to have a chance to bestow a little kavod on someone who writes thoughtfully and intelligently, and who can have you reaching for a hanky one day and schpritzing the monitor with the morning coffee the next.

Mozzil Tove, m'boy!

If I had to lose a Gold JIB to someone for "Best Slice of Life Blog in Israel"...then I'm glad it was your blog.

I guess Silver isn't the end of the world.

Mazel tov on the awards! When I first started reading your blog, the first thing I thought was "I love the slice of life in Israel that you present" so it's a pleasure to vote for you in that category.

Posted by: Sara K | May 25, 2007 6:28:14 AM

I'm so happy for you. Well done! Shabbat shalom.

I have to admit that the urge to congratulate you for having a blog in which Schnappi the Krokodil, anal leakage and shots of the gun slingin' chopped liver chef are too much not to mention in the comments.

Sorry. ;)

Mazal Tov! Trep. :)
