Friday I'm In Love (Acoustic)
By The Cure
Okay, it's really Saturday morning in my part of the world. But what the hell, I like this song. I could almost sing to it. :-D
So. On to this week's edition of Blogworld Saturday.
He's in a war zone, and he blogs about what it's like there. Most days, everything is peaceful, but once in a while things can become scary, to say the least. They know what they're doing, but stay safe, Sgt, Dub!
A shipload of books, that sure sounds like paradise to bibliophiles. Migs tells us about his impressions of the MV Doulos, the largest floating bookstore in the world. And it's presently anchored in a Manila harbor. Not for long, though. :-(
How heartbreaking is it--and how maddening--to discover that a friend isn't really a friend at all? Marlayna shares a recent experience over at It's the Little Things.
Mimi Lenox will be hosting the next Bestest Blog Carnival over at her site, Mimi Writes. This round will be all about memes and tags. Send her your favorite meme, and she'll include it in the Carnival. But you need to be a linkee (is that a legit word?) at Bobby Griffin's Bestest Blog of All Time before you can participate. Bobby's is one great site: I've found a lot of my blog friends through it (and some of them found me via Bestest Blog as well).
"Love means never having to say you're sorry." That's according to Erich Segal's book Love Story. Extend that line just a little to maybe include "Love means being out of this world crazy to the point that maybe we should be institutionalized," and you'll have Steve and Tami Novak down to pat.
I just hate it when people I don't know or those I'm not really close to enter my personal space uninvited. Dan doesn't like it, too, but he's found out that invasion of personal space can be a good thing--only, he didn't realize it until many years later.
I was tickled by H's utterly delightful comparison of safe sex tools, i.e., microbicides and condoms. This gal isn't all angst and dark stories; she has a fun side, too!
I enjoy reading the lists (or pictures) that people come up for occasions like Thursday Thirteen and Wordless Wednesdays. I really identified with a few of Turnbaby's Thursday 13 list! She's a cool person.
Gale Martin (a.k.a. Gem) has Word Wonk Wednesdays, and this week's topic is something that we can all relate to: recently-coined words and phrases about blogging!
I'm glad to be reading CSL's blog. She's a traveler, and her travel pictures inspire me (except for some roadkill pics and the viper in Costa Rica). She was in Oz recently, and shares with us photos of some of the sights there like the sea, food and beer (yum!), and... skinnydipping! (I'm soooo envious.) Tastefully done, nothing too risqué.
Houseband00 has a post that touches on Greek gods and having one's cake and eating it, too. He sounds a bit cynical there. But is he really??? Don't pull a fast one on us, HB! :-D
Last Life in My Universe (Deb, for short) is a young (and gorgeous and talented) woman who has experienced a lot in her life. In one post, she asks if forgetting can be done as handily as forgiving.
The latest season of that
Congratulations to Bond, because The Big Leather Couch was named Bestest Blog of the Day on 18 January, 2006. I'm glad The Couch is still as comfy as ever, despite the increase in couch-sitters.
Congratulations to The Thinker for being the best something in the Lone Star State! She's such a gifted writer, I'm really not surprised she won. Take a look at her post about not-quite-teenage angst, which is superb. It's a raw and heartfelt piece of writing.
Finally, a big WELCOME BACK!!! to my buddy Prometheus. The eloquent fire thief is finally up and blogging again. His wit, sarcasm, and sweetness were sorely missed.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
