Thank God I'm a trained counsellor

In small doses, the memes are fun. They give me something to post about, challenge my humour and slowly warp me into the everyman personal Blogger I am petrified to become.

The Interview was ok. I asked for it and dealt with the consequences. The Music Meme was bearable although I would have preferred a subject I had some knowledge on, like Particle Physics. But this is too much.

Shelly of This Eclectic Life has given me A Thinking Blogger Award.

Now it was only a matter of time before this meme was thrown my way. As each nominee has to nominate 5 others, the whole blogosphere will have been nominated three times over after just 12 recursions. However, I didn't expect to receive it just yet. I imagined more last ditch desperation, with a remark like “Freelance Cynic, ‘cos it’s the only thing left in my blogroll.”

Instead, this Iceberg I call my blog got a lovely write up and an early nomination. There are only 2 conclusions to reach from this. Either Freelance Cynic is a deep blog full of profound ideas and secrcet truths, or Shelly is a nut-job.

I’ll leave you to decide which one is true.

Here then are the poor blogs that make me think.

The Japing Ape
I never believed a gorilla could be so eloquent and deep until I find this blog. He has a profound understand of much of human life, and I have learnt a lot from him

Words, Words, Words
Fellow Atheist and like minder thinker, I always leave this blog thinking, sometimes about intelligent things.

Coroner Stories

Seldom updated but morbidly intriguing stories from a person whose day job really is death.

This Eclectic Life
Even though she nominated me I’ll nominate her back, partly because every post of hers conjures up new thoughts in my head, and partly because I’m running out of thinking blogs. Don't worry though you don't have to do the meme again.

Coaster Punchman
Normally this guy hammers out the funnies, but occasionally he really makes me think, like this post about homophobic homosexuality.

Here are the rules:
  1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
  2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
  3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.

Congrats on winning the award. I'm visiting via critique my blog and I think I quite like your blog. I'm pretty curious about your Thinking Blogger Award nominations as well.

I've gotten this award several times, buddy. I guess it's because I keep giving it to people who are lazy lazy lazy (lol). You must not give it back. And, I am not a nut job! Just a little bit twisted. That's why I enjoy your posts.

I made someone think???? Oh no, something must be totally off. But thanks! I'm quite honored.

I don't even recall how I linked to you at first, but it's nice to know I'm not the only cynic online :-)
