BOB-ing and weaving ...

Report: The Sun-Sentinel's BOB (Best of Blog) awards party took place last night (March 3) at YOLO, a hot spot on Los Olas in downtown Fort Lauderdale -- and a block away from the Sun-Sentinel building where I worked for almost 10 years.

It was a little strange, in a deja-vu-ey way, to be back in the neighborhood I spent so much time in. And we shivered a bit through the proceedings, as the event was held outdoors on an extremely chilly night (thank god for that roaring fire pit!).

But Gail and I both agreed at the end of the evening that it was well worth attending -- even though, as expected, neither of us won. First of all, we were served the restaurant's Szechuan Calamari (delish!) and a side dish of creamy pasta; second, we drank for free.

Good mood established, we were ready to mingle with other local bloggers, say hello to some old colleagues from the Sentinel, and cheer the winners as they were announced. (In case you're interested, you can read which blogs won the first BOB Awards here.)

Interestingly, two of the winning blogs contain the word "sex." Hmmm ... maybe I'm on to something. Or not.

Regardless, I'll continue this endeavor -- even without any awards or recognition. Because, really, to be honest, I'm kind of hooked on being Middle-age Sexy!!
