Blogworld Saturday

I'm posting this a lot later than I usually do (it's almost 9AM here, Saturday morning) but better late than never, right? For some reason insomnia didn't come calling and I actually slept through the night last night. Hallelujah! Will wonders never cease?

On to some of the week's blogs and posts that I read.

Letting one's guard down and feeling at ease is one thing, but forgetting one's manners is another. Other people's inconsiderate behavior, rudeness--these are some of the things that get Aileen's goat when she goes to the movies.

Mimi Lenox has a weekly competition called Saturday Comeback Challenge over at Dating Profile of the Day. The dating ads are funny, but the comebacks that bloggers send in are even more so! Congratulations to Frank for winning this week's round.

Scott challenged his readers to Google their childhood home and write five entries relating about the results. Well, since Googling my address didn't come up with anything useful, I used Google Earth instead. I must say, it's been fun reminiscing. Still thinking about what I can share with you guys in the remaining four posts. Try Scott's meme yourself, and let me know. I'd love to read what Google Earth or Google Maps images inspired you to write.

Wendz has a fantastic post over at A Baguette on My Table: an audio meme! It's so nice to put a voice to the face and the writing--and what a lovely voice and accent it turned out to be, too. Plus, the way her little boy kept interrupting her was just so sweet.

Speaking of little boys, Sanni's Thursday 13 post just made me go "awwwww." She made a calendar featuring photos of her baby angel, Luis. That Sanni is one talented, determined gal. And beautiful, too!

I was moved by fellow Filipino blogger Migs' post about his sister, who celebrated her birthday recently. This young man sure is one kickass talented writer. His sister is fortunate to have such a brother (and vice-versa!).

We're all fortunate to have good, loyal friends, but does this loyalty have limitations? Should it have limitations? The sage dragon who also goes by the name Kiyotoe wrote about what loyalty among friends means to him, what he does or how far he's willing to go to show that his friends have his back.

And that's it for today. My broadband's back, but it still isn't as fast as it usually is; they say the connection will probably normalize by the end of the month. I sure hope so. *sigh*

Happy weekend everybody! Cheers!

Great to hear you slept through the night
This will be a good weekend for you I bet

Lizza said...

Kyels: Thanks, you too! And I really hope the Internet lords would stop being such asses and let me open your blog.

ZI: I hope so. May it be a good one for you, too. :-)

terra shield said...

Broadband slower than usual? Is it because of the Taiwan quakes?

Have a good weekend!

Dan said...

Lizza, you do such a great job of summarizing highlights of the blogosphere every week! Thanks!

My broadband's back

Even though I work in the telecommuncations industry, every time someone says "broadband" I can't help but think of The Go-Gos or L7 or The Bangles or Sleater-Kinney! :)

Happy weekend!

houseband00 said...

Can't complain. I'm on dial-up. =)

I'm glad you had a good night's sleep.

I wondah whyyyy??? =)

Lizza said...

Terra: Yes, you're right. And I hope it gets fixed soon. I am slowly going insane. Oh wait, I am already. Haha! Happy weekend.

Dan: Haha, thanks! I hope you have good dreams all weekend long--toothless ones. :-)

HB: I wondah toooo. Haha! I'm sorry I missed the coffee-fest and music marathon last night, though.

Kiyotoe said...

I'll be sure to check these other suggestions out.

And I looked up "sage" in the dictionary. Thanks for the compliment ;)

How "wise" is that?? lol.

Lizza said...

Kiyotoe: I'm glad you didn't think I was referring to the herb, haha! Have a great weekend, brotha. ;-)

Turnbaby said...

Great wrap up as usual Lizza. So glad you got sleep (I did too! YAY) And when you say "my broadband's back" I hear Hey La Hey La my broadband's back" . I am strange I know. Have a great weekend.

Natalia said...

Oh I love recommendations! :) Have an awesome weekend, darling.


Odat said...

Ah...more reading!!! But I'm sure they'll all be great! Thanks for your updates....Have a wonderful weekend!

Brooklyn Frank said...

happy long weekend!

Lizza said...

turnbaby: The normal sleep was a one-night occurrence (well, two actually). Now I'm back to my "normal" sleeping hours, which aren't normal by other people's standards. Have a great weekend!

Natalia: Thanks! You have an awesome one, too, my dear.

Odat: Thanks! I hope you have a great weekend, too!

Brooklyn Frank: Thanks! Happy weekend to you, too.

Wendz said...

Thanks for the shout...:O)

Hope you've had a good weekend...yours is over now - mine is halfway there. Pah!

Witness Street said...

Hi Lizza! Thanks for the link! But I must say that I am much, much luckier than my sister than she is for having me.

Cheers and happy weekend! :)

Sanni said...

*cough* I´m sorry I didn´t make it yesterday - I´ve no idea how this could happen, but we three are suffering from a bad cold attended with fever... *sneeze*

So I´m enjoying your Blogworld Saturday on Sunday while I´m in bed =)

Thanks a lot for the shout out, my friend.

Have a good weekend =)

Lizza said...

Wendz: Thanks! It was a fun, relaxing weekend. Hope yours wasn't too frenzied. :-)

Migs: See! You're a sweet brother. Both of you are lucky to have each other then. :-)

Maryanne: Checked it out, and you're right! He's one passionate "inker" and his entries are a good read.

Sanni: Ohhh, I hope all of you get better soon. Cheers, my friend!

Michael C said...

Thanks for another weekend of blog 'must-reads!!' Have a great weekend!!

Lizza said...

Thanks, Michael! Hope your weekend is coming along splendidly.

CSL said...

Nice compilation, I just checked them all out. I have broadband cable, and it mysteriously bugs out on a random basis.

Lizza said...

Thanks, CSL! My broadband cable connection seems to have its fast and slow times at present. I just need to bear with it until everything becomes normal again. Hope you had a good weekend.

Mimi Lenox said...

Glad you got some sleep! Another great Saturday Blogworld. Thanks for mentioning the Saturday Comeback Challenge. Have an awesome week!

Lizza said...

Have an awesome week yourself, Mims. But it certainly looks like you're already having one. *wink wink*
