THE CHROMOS AWARDS
Mrs. Linklater wants to steal another one of Bosox's ideas. Actually he hasn't given her permission to steal it yet, but here goes anyway.
He may have topped his VULVI idea with The [loud fluorish] CHROMOS Awards. You'll find them mentioned by him in the comments a couple of entries back. Mrs. L thinks the name is a combination of CRONY and COSMOS. Although she knows Bosox would not agree.
However, instead of stealing all Bo's ideas, which included, among others, the Bag Lady of the Blog, an award Mrs. L would win hands down, given her age and lack of finances, she thought a CHROMOS could be awarded to a journal that should have been nominated for a VIVI, but wasn't. For whatever reason. We were too stupid, for instance.
[Finally something Remo can't win.]
So, as far as she is concerned, there are two deserving journals that fit into some category of greatness, but were not nominated for it.
The first is ONE WAY PASSAGE, which you can link to over in Other Journals.
And the second is What the hell. . .? Which can also be linked to from Other Journals.
Here are three more from Bosox, which in the interest of sucking up to him, have links so you can let him know if they're each worth a CHROMOS. Not that he'll care if you don't like them.
UPDATE by popular demand: Separation Anxiety
Now, if only Mrs. L can get Andi [artloner] to make the knob fit into a sidebar.
Originally, Mrs. Linklater thought that a statue made from the chrome fender off an old Chrysler would make a perfect symbol for a CHROMOS. But who has time for that?
So this picture of the knob from a Fender guitar will have to do.
See what happens when you Google "chrome fender"?
