That was fun - thanks for putting this together every year.

I should commission you to make the plagues for people to stick on their blogs... people are already asking about them.:-P

How interesting that Diocese of Rochester blogs took home both "More Catholic Than the Pope" (Cleansing Fire) and "Best Blog by a Heretic" (Toward a Progressive Catholic Church).

Thank you to all who voted for Cleansing Fire. This includes our readers, well-wishers, and those who voted for us based on a coin flip.

I hate to think what plague will be sent our way. Please not locusts.

If I had a choice of plague, I'd take the frogs. You can eat frogs, you know.

Thanks for running this again, Kat.

And thanks to everyone who voted for Acts of the Apostasy. You apparently have excellent taste.

Fr LWG said...


Have you tried the chocolate-covered locusts? Mmmm.


Loads of fun. Thanks.

Heather said...

Kat, thanks for introducing me to some more great blogs. Other than yours, I haven't heard of any of these before. I'll go check them out. =]

PS....PLEASE tell us about the plagues!! I can't wait to hear about those!!

The Digital Hairshirt said...

I will be publishing an acceptance speech later. For now, it's all about beating Kat in the category she created for herself . . .

Christie said...

This was so much fun! Thanks for all your hard work on this contest, Kat. If you are handing out plagues to the runners up, we could use some frogs down here to deal with all the mosquitos.

Nod said...

That was a hoot; thanks, Kat. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees.

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod is grateful for all the support in a potpourri of ways.

The dentist says I should avoid plaque like the plague ...

Looks like you've formed an informal community here - the fun side of Catholicism. And the broadcast was entertaining. Kudos.
