Yeah, I know I haven't done this the past few weeks. I'm sorry. Feels good to be doing it again, though. Almost as good as slowly spooning mouthfuls of chunky chocolate ice cream on a hot summer's day. Indulging feelings of languor and nostalgia.
Wendz writes such inspiring posts, and this one is no exception. She described how she recently brought things into perspective for her, reinforcing her belief that there is nothing that can't be sorted out.
Tammie Jean shared something from her childhood -- an experience no child should ever undergo. Sadly, so many do. I'm just glad this beautiful woman's spirit wasn't scarred by that childhood incident.
I like reading comedy blogs. (Hi Matt, Dan, Mist1, Avery, Bud, Frank, Michael, Dating Expert Mimi, Mr. Fab!) Coming across a serious post by Diesel was something of a surprise, but a most pleasant one. An act of atrocity was what prompted the post, which turned out to be an affirmation of his belief in the existence of meaning in life. Passionate, well-written.
Human behavior is strange sometimes, or most of the time, I should say. I've been told that women are impossible to understand, something I can't deny (and that's why you men can't get enough of us). Anyway, Marlayna's been getting some strange treatment from a couple of women at her gym -- they treat her like she doesn't exist. It's so weird.
Another manifestation of strange human behavior is our fascination with the minutiae of celebrity life. Just what is it about them that grabs our attention, especially when they're caught with their pants down? They're like accident scenes: we can't help but look. Bond's photo post about some celebrities was good for a laugh.
Reading CS' blog posts is an eye-opening experience for me, I almost always learn something new. Take, for instance, her description of a humane way to euthanize a pet fish. Her post reminds me of the demise of my pet fish, but that's a story for another post. CS also has a habit of trying to bring luck to strangers, very nice of her.
Parlancheq always has interesting tidbits to share with her readers: from highlights of trips she's taken to dating to thoughts about her children to amazing gadgets one would give one's eyeteeth to have. Or simply eye candy. Yummy-licious eye candy, just like this. I've been straining my eyes trying to make out the patterns on their "clothing"...but no success so far. Oh, well. I guess I just have to go look some more.
I like reading the blogs of DaddyPapersurfer (edited by the Terrible Goddess) and Penfold because they're funny in a way that only Brits can be. It was through these two that I found the blog of an amazing woman called nursemyra. She's an expert not only at nursing but at practicing a certain art, the mere thought of which can reduce men to quivering puddles of silliness. She has such a wickedly delightful sense of humor! And she loves bananas.
Incidentally, aside from making widgets and building staircases that lead to nowhere, another thing that Penfold likes to do is surf. So if you have nothing better to do in September and if you're so inclined, maybe you'd like to head over to his part of the world and take part in his surf convoy. (CS, this looks like something you'd enjoy!)
Have a great weekend, people! Stay safe and sexy.
