Blogworld Saturday

Last Saturday of the month! And we know what we usually see here on Saturdays.

Sunrunner. Her frustration with media, gun-buying, and the death of someone she once knew is palpable in her post.

Debo Blue. There are people who curse the rain and there are those who embrace it. Debo's introspective post about trying to hear God's voice in a thunderstorm was moving. A little fall of rain can hardly hurt me now (that's from a song that just came to mind. Odat, I know YOU know this one.).

Odat. You know how in some languages nouns have genders? For example, a table is female in Spanish (la mesa), but it's masculine in Italian (il tavolo); friendship in German is feminine (die Freundschaft). Asshole, on the other hand, can be either masculine and feminine all over the world. Odat tells us why photocopiers are female and trains are male, among other things.

Michael C. He has a new feature called Q and A Tuesday, in which he answers questions about almost anything. Such as: "What are your views on the current global warming crisis?", "Can you dance as well as Sammy Davis Jr.?" and "Betty or Veronica?"

Ian. His 400th post is up and he's asking for input on which of his posts we think are the best. Ian's book, The Milkman is available at bookstores near you. Well, not literally. But everything's just a click away online.

Diesel. Speaking of books, Robert Kroese (also known lovingly as Diesel) will be releasing his own book, Antisocial Commentary, and it can be pre-ordered now. If you want to learn about Harry Potter's slide into Satanism or how James Blunt came up with the hit song "You're Beautiful," you can find out from his book (if you're too lazy to delve into his archives). He and the missus are also celebrating their anniversary and he's given us all permission to raid his fridge.

Blankestblank Blog of the Year. Created by Bobby Griffin, who's also behind Bestest Blog of All Time. Bobby was kind enough to include me in the list of people in the running for the award. I'm in great company; so many of my blog buddies are there too: The Dragon, Sanni, Bond, Irene Tuazon, Morgen, Matt-Man, Bud Weiser, and Mimi Lenox. Voting seems to be a bit difficult, but head on over there for a look-see anyway.

Have a kickass, devil-may-care weekend, everybody! Stay randy...but sweet.

You are so sweet to give kudos to fellow bloggers like this every Saturday!

And I LOVE your new profile photo. You look like Anna Karina in an early Jean-Luc Godard movie. Most awesome!

Great wrap up! Have a great weekend!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds voting on bestest blog rather confusing

Debo's post is just something else.

Really loved it. It's made my saturday just that little bit more happy/ wistful-for-a-rain-cloud.

H said...

Oh. and I tried voting [when I noticed his comment on yours]... and I got completely lost and confused after I was made to sign up. SO can you please explain for dunce-me, step-by-step how to do it?

Thanks for the mention, Lizza!

Lizza said...

Thanks, everyone! Hope you all had a randy weekend. (You especially, DaddyP.)

H, looks like you have to rate all the blogs there, can't just search for one blog.

Thanks for the update, Bobby.
