In Baltimore there are these things called the Mobbies – they are the Blog Oscars for local bloggers.
And, hooray, Desperate English Housewife is in the ‘Personal Blogs’ category! (And the ‘Lifestyle Blogs’ category!)
So, if you have a moment, please go here and vote for this very blog (which does take a lot of time to write, don’t you know!)
There are lots of other local blogs from Howard County in the listings too, which you might be interested in…. They are listed here. Check them out and cast a vote for them too 🙂

My late friend Dennis’s blog, Tales of Two Cities, is not listed on the Mobbies nominations form. We are hoping that there will be some sort of honor and recognition for his life, his blog and his contribution to the community at the Nov 19th awards party.
I’ve been to a lot of events in Howard County recently where I’ve missed Dennis’s presence. He was such a large soul and life of the party. We have a bloggers event tomorrow – we’ll miss his hat, his scarf and his laugh there too.
Name of this blog
On the Mobbies’ page I am listed as Desperate English Housewife in USA, rather than Desperate English Housewife in Washington (mostly because the Mobbies are Baltimore based).
It got me to thinking… I called it Desperate English Housewife in Washington because:
a) Of the Desperate Housewives thing
b) Because of Mr Smith Goes to Washington (kind of a play on the title)
c) And because I was a bit ignorant before we came to live here and I sort of thought we would be living in Washington, which we obviously aren’t – we are outside of Washington and quite a painfully long journey from the centre.
Anyway, I wondered if I should change the titles of my blogs to Desperate English Housewife in the USA….what do you blog readers think…..?!
Claire, Thanks for including the list of Howard County bloggers and social sites up for Mobbies this year. Re Dennis, my understanding from the Mobbies team is that there will be a recognition and honoring of him, his life and his blog at the event. And, yes, of course, I’ve voted for your blog … which reminds me, I need to log in again today and vote. Ta ta! 😉
It would be a wonderful thing to have some kind of recognition for him 🙂
Yes, peeps, don’t forget, you can vote!
