Remember the feeling you get after a particularly good but heavy meal? When every limb seems to weigh a ton, the eyelids are so heavy you can barely keep them open because you're so replete, and it seems like you're stuck in a deliciously timeless moment of sweet languor? That's how I feel sometimes when I read your blogs. Whether the topic is serious -- or seriously funny, it's still a lip-smacking treat to read.
Yes, it's Saturday morning here already. And you know what I usually post on Saturdays.
-You're on a plane; you're taking a nap on your journey to somewhere. You wake up next to a corpse. How would you react? Here's what Michael would do.
-Feeling the effects of being in one's cups one too many times and having small cups are two of the things that Mist1 and I have in common. One of the many differences between us is that she uses a sleep mask sometimes and I don't. But if I ever find myself needing to, I don't think I'd do it quite the way she did.
-Being a woman is a funny and exasperating thing. Yet we should celebrate our womanhood, as Laurzei did recently. Guys, don't forget to celebrate the women in your lives, too.
-Odat always makes me smile with her posts. She is a sunny, sunny person -- even when she's complaining about something. Case in point: her Ode to Spring. Which can also be the literary equivalent of flipping the bird at crappy weather.
-Odat likes monkeys, I've had a chuckle or two over some monkeys. What I didn't know was that Yaxlich is a brass monkey. He didn't realize he was one either, until one extremely cold day.
-It still boggles my mind to think that a terrific blogger like The Thinker is so young. She's so young that she still goes to a pediatrician for her health issues. Her well-written and endearing post about a visit to her doctor to get some shots provokes both sympathy and laughter.
-Natalie wrote that memory is a complex structure that helps shape who we are. Each of us remembers things differently; maybe that's why "truth" seems so subjective sometimes. What's sad is that so many memories remain locked within, perhaps forgotten forever.
-Natalia's brain hurts, and she's glad it does. The brain pain comes from thinking, and would that people do it more! She has a mental strength and willpower that I envy. I could take a page from her book.
Have a yummy weekend, everybody. See you again next week!
