Blogworld Saturday

Okay, Matt. Hats off to you if you read anything remotely risqué in the title of this post!

Speaking of the devil, Matt has a fun take on having sex during the holidays. Anyone can do it: men, women, kids; you can do it alone or with your friends and family. Some do it well, others need practice. But what the heck, as long as you're having fun then everything's good. After all, 'tis the season to be jolly!

Here are just some of the other blog posts I've read and enjoyed over the past week:

Dan recounts his crush (to put it mildly) on a bumperrific teacher he had when he was a kid. And it shows that he was a good kid at heart. Awwwww!

My buddy Prometheus is a geek. But he's a geek who knows how to have fun! His post about Leetspeak (or L33735P34K) was just a tad too much for my poor grey matter to handle, but it was an enjoyable read nevertheless.

Bond's stories about his dates from hell (sort of) when he was younger had me in stitches. It's somewhat of a long post, but it was worth the read. I also liked the way he matched a song to each encounter. Well, going through all those experiences was worth it for him, I guess. But reading that post makes me glad I'm not a man!

Amost everybody who's been online has seen or at least read about Britney Spears' underwear faux pas. Bud's interview with the erstwhile pop princess makes me think she'll do it again.

I like visiting webcomics, and one that I go to regularly is Ian's Adventures of the S-Team. These Lego superheroes (and the villains) make me smile. If reincarnation is true and if by some chance I'd have to be reborn as a Lego superhero, I'd love to be Silence, Ian's female ninja. She rocks.

But is there such a thing as reincarnation? We've probably speculated on how we'll cross over, what our funerals will be like, or even if there is an afterlife. Last Life in My Universe has a series of posts about death and dying. Interesting stuff.

Death, love, and sex--at least one of these can be found in movies. It's the Little Things' post about her favorite movie lines reminded me about one of my favorite books: Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I haven't seen the film adaptation, but I'd sure like to read that book again.

I'm no authority on great literature or great movies, but maybe they are. You know, those people who seem to know everything, who make up this elusive and mysterious clique known as they. The Thinker, a young lady many people admire tremendously (me included), has a post about this know-it-all group. At 16, The Thinker is more mature than I am at 35!

Happy trails to those who will be spending the holidays in places other than home. I'm wishing all of them a most enjoyable and memorable trip: Kyels, Zero Impact, Houseband00, and Sidney.

Leaving you a with a live version of Pink Floyd's classic Wish You Were Here. I just love this song.

Dammit Lizza, you have me stumped on that one. Thanks for the shout out, and I hope that you and I can get together some Christmas and "have sex"!! : )

Wendz in France said...

I love Pink Floyd....marvellous song that.

And that memorable movie lines would make a great meme...something to keep in mind for when bloggers block hits again.

You also have a smashing weekend...

Lizza said...

Matt: That sounds great! I think "having sex" with you would make for a whole lot of laughs. But you gotta be patient because I'm no good at it. Haha!

Wendz: Oooh, you think up a meme revolving around that then. Yep, this song is just terrific. Have a wonderful weekend too!

Great song.

By the way, I'm glad I seem mature on my blog because I'm the complete opposite in real life.

ARG.. I am so frustrated with Blogger the last few days.

I sent a thanks for the nod on your weekend post and now I see it is not here.

Two Saturday's in a row I make the cut... wow

Appreciate the kind words Lizza!

Lizza said...

Steve: Of course! Happy trails to you, too, you kook. :-)

Natalie: Thank you. But you know you're more of a ruckus-bringer than I am, right?

Bond: I hope Blogger is done with its teething problems. I'm on Beta and I was having trouble leaving comments, too.

We appreciate your blog, Vinny!
