Blogworld Saturday

It's early Saturday morning where I am, and if you're a regular visitor to this corner of cyberspace, you know what that means. It's Blogworld Saturday!

If it's your first time here, welcome. I hope you pass by this way again someday. The following are snippets of posts I've read over the past few days and weeks. They are just 12 of the literally hundreds that I've enjoyed (I obviously can't write about all of them--so many blogs to read and write about, so little time). They're arranged in no particular order, by the way.

Parlancheq's blog posts are amusing, more often than not. But she does write about serious stuff sometimes. Her post on why suing MySpace will not help prevent sexual predators from victimizing children who have MySpace accounts is one example.

Kyels and ZeroImpact came over from Malaysia to spend a few days in the Philippines last month. It was wonderful to see these two bloggers/photographers so excited about their visit here and having so much fun. They took a few pictures of the local sights. You can see how they saw Manila through pictures like this, this, this, and this.

I very much liked Sony's post about lucidity, about the medley of highs and lows in any given year. He's such a romantic, perhaps without even meaning to be. Calling his lady his sunset-haired Goddess...oh wow. His way of writing captivates.

This post about corollaries, or a "proposition that follows with little or no proof" made me think a bit. One corollary that she has deals with going back to what she was like when she was 16, whenever she has a love-related problem. She did this recently, and discovered something about kindness.

In addition to Scott's AELEOPE Google Earth meme, check out his Sunday morning captioning feature. The pictures elicit a chuckle or two. Last Sunday's photo was just crazy.

Justin over at More Cowbell gives either a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down at the entries in Billboard's Top 100 songs for 2006. I must confess, though, that I'm not familiar with a lot of the songs on the list!

I never used to notice the ad links that appear in the window whenever I open my email. But because of the Unreliable Witness' non-meme post about links his Gmail messages, I do now!. I enjoy reading this writer's four-in-one blog. I wish him well in his attempt to become the Ruler of the Entire Known World (excluding Venezuela).

Rach's post about her best friend, who's also her housemate, and the domestic irritations (to put it mildly) she experiences made me want to pull my hair out in frustration for her. While you're there, check out her latest beach photo. It's breathtaking and inspiring.

A post about race and racism over at It's the Little Things has very troubling and thought-provoking content. This is one example of the fruit falling a gazillion light years away from the tree. Thank heavens for that!

Laurzeilei works in the world of fashion, yet some of her views about how beauty is popularly seen nowadays may seem to contradict her profession. Am I a hypocrite for being in the fashion industry, yet wondering why people feel pressure to look thinner, younger, more beautiful?, she asks.

Some people are physically and mentally strong, in addition to being extra thoughtful when it comes to their significant others. Just like Meredic. He pulled up a wall. I can barely pull my ass out of this chair.

I love a good sex post (who doesn't?) and Avery's entry about shagging is such an enjoyable read. What does a philosopher like him say about sex? What advice can he give to enhance the experience or to get the ball rolling? I guess there's only one way to find out!

I apologize for not having been able to visit many of your sites the past few days. I see from my feed reader that I've been missing a lot of great posts! I'll be away this weekend, but I hope to catch up on your blogs real soon. Thank you very much for stopping by at mine.

Have a great Saturday and Sunday, everyone! Stay healthy, safe, and sexy. ;-)

I love to read your Blogworld Saturdays - especially when it´s still friday in my little part of the world =)

And I love your new header - fits perfectly.

I confess: I don´t have a green thumb... so could you please tell me more about this green leave appearing in your header?! *ROFL*

Enjoy your weekend =)

I think I'll be keeping an eye on your site more often, as I really need to circulate more in those parts of blogland *not* connected with politics and sociology!

kyels said...

I'll still be doing the travelogue, it's not the end yet ... Heehee.


I love what I see in Pinas; through my eyes and my lens!

Have a great weekend ahead!

Sidney said...

I must say I have found another reason to look forward to Saturdays :-)

I'm completely hooked to Unreliable. and I can't thank you and Yaxlich enough for this fine discovery. He's completely something else. I think I'm almost crushing on him. [he's THAT good. as in, THAT good-enough.] :P
