Anyhoo, here are just some of the blogs and blog posts I've enjoyed reading the past week. Just because I didn't mention you this week doesn't mean I didn't like what I read. I did! Problem is there's just too many of you to mention in one post. I hope you like at least one of these as much as I did.
-What's the Point of Guinea Pigs is a jewel of a blog. Phoenix writes about Princess Kitty and Growly Bear, their love for each other, their efforts to discover the meaning of guinea pigs (which they sometimes are on the verge of finding), their mutual passion for making and eating honey, among other things. The posts are delightful, endearing, full of simple yet deep thoughts. I just want to take this blog in my arms and give it a big hug.
-The Dragon is back after a lengthy hiatus and his posts are as wise and thoughtful as ever. Kiyotoe is a writer, and he wants to write about stuff that we humans can relate to. There's a wealth of material for that because, as he says, there are so many things that we have in common that are lying underneath all the differences.
-I had never before heard of the word synesthete until CSL wrote about her son being one. It sounds fascinating; he experiences numbers and letters as colors. Isn't that amazing? I'm sure that it contributes to his love for music.
-Sometimes you just gape in shock when you learn something new about a blogger. Wendz had a recent post about a terrible ordeal she went through about two years ago, one that nobody should ever have to experience. Wendz is also celebrating her birthday today (if it's still the second of March in your part of the world. So go on over to her site and support her decision not to lose too much weight and to keep her bum and her boobs.).
-Fellow Pinay blogger Maggie (I found her site through Wendz) wrote about her addiction to addiction. We've all been addicted to something at one point or another in our lives, and a lot of us quit only when we're good and ready to do so. Oh, yeah.
-Sometimes simple is best, simple can show how smart or how, ummm, simple you are. Cappy sure as hell simplified something that I'm sure we've all been asked to search for in the past. I just wish I'd known about this technique when I was in high school. :-D
-Maryanne, another fellow Pinay blogger who writes over at Sensibilities, brought this site to my attention, and I'm glad she did. It's called The Dullest Blog in the World. It's another example of how short and simple can be awesome. And hilarious. Here's a sample entry from that site:
I was inside my house and decided that I would like to go outside for a while. I picked up my keys, opened the front door and stepped outside. I turned around and closed the door behind me.
And that's it! Too bad it isn't being updated anymore.
-Did you know that there's such a thing called Inappropriate Card Day? I didn't, not until a few days ago. It takes place every 26th of February and it was created by Diesel, who writes the humor blog Mattress Police, and his wife. The rules?
You can give an inappropriate card to anyone. There are no rules. Well, except for the fact that the card has to be completely inappropriate -- and not risque inappropriate; that's too easy. It has to be a card that would be perfectly appropriate for someone other than the recipient, preferably on a completely different day.
Well, that's it for now. I'm off for the next couple of days, so I'll be seeing you all again next week. Everybody stay safe and sexy!
