Homespun Honolulu’s Newest Category

Purple rosesI fussed about the titles. I liked all of them. But, the winning entry and the most fitting category title ended up to be “Honolulu Rant” which was submitted by Hart. He submitted Honolulu Rant and offered Honolulu Rave as a suggestion for posts that were positive. He also said that perhaps Homespun Rant and Homespun Rave would work as well. While the latter is true, somehow Honolulu fits the bill better. Thank you, Hart for participating and for being so diligent when your first attempt got deleted as spam.

Some of you may know Hart as PetLvr from MyBlogLog. You can get a better idea of who he is there and a picture of the other sites he authors.

Bottle of Bitch WineWhat better way to deal with a bitchy topic than with wine and roses? The wine will be sent to Hart as promised. When it comes to the roses however, what you see here is all you’re gonna get! I’m not shipping those, sorry!

I need to express my gratitude to those who decided to join in.

Thanks you guys for participating! You all deserve wine, roses and even chocolate!

Mahalo to the following people for their participation:

  • Carole Lane of The San Diego Beat offered “Evelyn’s Evil Itch” as her entry. It was difficult not to give the prize to Carole because her entry was the first, she has been wanting this wine for at least two months, and she is a sister blogger whom I like very much!
  • David B. Dale of Very Short Novels entered “Corner of Bitch and Rant” and it would have given me great pleasure to have something coined by this writing genius whose blog has impacted every one of my emotions except for rage! I guess he doesn’t want any of his readers going postal.
  • Corinna Makris, a very-welcome visitor and author of A Celebration of Curves submitted “Huhu from the Lanai” for consideration. Again, an excellent suggestion but not quite in English. Another difficult one to turn down since the name of her blog alone deserves a bottle of wine!
  • Kuanyin, author of Who’s Yo Mama? made a nice suggestion. She suggested the word “pilikia” which means trouble or nuisance in Hawaiian. This would have been a perfect word but I was looking for a title in English. Another hard one to ignore since she is on our sister island of Maui.

    Hi Carole! Get to be a what? You mean a “B”? Of course! I now take that as a compliment and a title of distinction! Big hugs and have a great week! 🙂
