Blogworld Saturday

It's Saturday morning in my part of the world now. Time flies by so fast nowadays, it seems. The year is almost over, and I find myself reluctant to say goodbye to it for some reason. I know I should look forward to the coming year...to all the new things it might bring, but I just don't feel it yet. On to Blogworld Saturday then, before this touch of the blues becomes a full-blown blob!

These are just some of the posts I've had the pleasure of reading this week; maybe they'll bring you some measure of enjoyment, too.

Sony is another person who's been having somewhat ambivalent thoughts about the coming year. Will the breaking of habits, like chronic planning and ambivalence, happen in 2007? I like the way this man writes and the ways he makes me think.

Scott has a thought-provoking post about feelings in blog reading and writing. Was this brought about by post-NaNoWriMo depression? Mental gas? Flatulent ennui? (okay, not really; I just wanted to use those two words today, ha!)

Can a man and a woman have an honest-to-goodness friendship without feeling sexually attracted to each other? Houseband00's short post about it was inspired by the movie When Harry Met Sally.

Ladies and gentlemen, listen up. Cuddling is a myth, at least according to Mimi. And I see her point! She made me laugh, yet again, with this one. Belated birthday greetings to thee again, O Queen.

It's so adorable when man's best friend starts acting like man (or woman) himself (or herself). Humans complain to God, so do dogs, as you'll see in this hilarious post from Odat.

Pawlie Coconuts, also known as the Laughorist, has a touching post about his brother, who died last year. No smartass witticisms, just heartfelt pain and love.

No parent or child-rearing technique is perfect. Parenthood doesn't come with a manual and there's no one-size-fits-all method for raising children. Marlayna has two posts that show a little bit of how she raises hers. Very interesting reading!

Many of us have done those silly Internet quizzes from Blogthings; Natalie is one such person. I enjoyed her comments about the results of several "girlie" quizzes that she took. Her post is great fun!

Shadowfalcon, who was freezing her buns off in London a couple of days ago, has an interesting post about the possible why's and wherefores of wanderlust. It's a topic that's close to my heart. I haven't done it, but to travel extensively and lose myself (or is it find myself?) in other countries and cultures is one of the things that I would dearly love to do.

Words can't describe just how much I admire the way that H puts her thoughts into words. One example is this post about a dream she had. I've had some weird dreams, but I don't think I could write them down as well as she did. Or even if I could, I wouldn't have the guts to post them here!

Congratulations to all NaNoWriMo participants! Now get back to blogging, people. :-)

More great blog posts to share next week, I'm sure. In the meantime, everybody please keep safe, be happy, and have a kickass weekend! Some of you may have seen this before, but for those who haven't, here's a pic to make you smile. Hey, I said smile, not laugh hysterically.

Yep, no parenting method is perfect; it all differs. I'm not a parent yet and to fully understand the way it should work, I've to be one first. Hehe.

Anyway, have a happy weekend Lizza!

Kiyotoe said...

that cuddling post was right on point!

But as usual, don't tell the counselor i said that.

Lizza said...

Kyels: It's a tough yet strangely rewarding experience. :-)

Kiyotoe: Haha! Okay, my lips are sealed.

Hi Liz, (Liz ka na ngayon)

Thanks again for linking my one of my posts and for showing the world how utterly full of nonsense I am. =)

I absolutely love these 'sharing the blogs' posts of yours..always discover such cool stuff.

Lizza..I think you look better without the beard and shades, darling. Interesting look, but not quite 'you'. :o)

Lizza, dahling, I feel very very honoured when you link my posts. Especially because i love coming here and reading you.
Y'know I really wish I could be part of the christmas lunch. i'd really really like to meet you. :-)

Lizza said...

Comdedian HB: Uyyy, nonsense daw. Ungas! :-)

Wendz: Haha! Damn, I just so love the stubble. Oh well, I guess it looks better on somebody else. Glad you enjoyed the post. Have a good one!

Dear H: I wish you could be at the Christmas lunch, too. It would be my honor to meet you. Maybe the next time you travel, you could swing by these islands. And just in case you didn't know, I love going over to your site and reading your posts.

Announcement: I'm having some computer problems...it just freezes on me. So I can't go online as often as I'd like to. Having it checked on Monday, then I'll catch up on everyone's blogs.

Every now and then I pop over to your site and then I get sidetracked as you have so many links and interesting bits to read that I spend hours on the internet when I should be practising the trumpet!

ZI: If it made you laugh, then I'm glad. :-)
