Today I will play your tour guide through space and time to check out some other fun blogs. Hold onto my hand as we step off the curb and head toward my friend Ms. B1tch's place. She always makes me laugh. Let's look in on her a few days ago, when she was
Now let's see who's on her blog list. (Humph, why the hell am I not there?! Must talk to Ms. B about this oversight.) This is interesting...Reduce Footprints. Okay, let's go check it out. You can go back and see Ms. B later. Ask her why I'm not on her blog list. Hey, here's a celebration over here! It's the 100th post at Reduce Footprints. There's a mini-movie - a sea turtle's the screencap. This could be neat. Let's watch. It'll only take a minute or two. Wow! That was TOTALLY worthwhile. Some gorgeous places. There's some fine content here, a nice mix of earth-friendly tips and excellent writing. I'll be back. In fact, give me a minute to become a follower. Where will I lead you now?
Let's check out who's on RF's "Other, nice places to visit...." list.
This sounds fun: Idiot's Stew. Off we go! I love the subtitle, "A Soupy Mess of Left-overs Seasoned with the Bitter Dregs of Cynicism." The most recent post, "48 is the New 73" sounds intriguing. Hee hee! Did you see the second paragraph? Idiot Blogger writes, "Fast-forward 3 ½ decades to this morning when I looked in the mirror and it occurred to me that I now look a fuckuvalot like my dad." I like his phrasing. That is my guilty pleasure. I like the f-word and its derivatives. Here's an explanation of that viewpoint by a noted British actor (yes, you can guess who it is) when he is asked about his favorite curse word. The question's asked at 1:08. I'm including the entire clip rather than just the relevant 10 seconds because he's so darn fun.
Oh, dear, I kind of took a side trip there, didn't I? Let's go back to the Idiot for a minute. I really like the ending of his post today: "...as we get older, we become who we have always been regardless of how hard we have fought to stand apart from our heritage. We are marching forward, yes, but we walk in a great circle that inevitably leads us right back to where we started." This guy's really good! Profound thoughts, lovely prose. Yet he's not afraid to let loose with the occasional "fuckovalot." I admire that.
Well, dang, our time together today is up. I'd wanted to take you to a couple of other spots in the blogverse, but the Amazing Children had a half day of school, and I need to harangue them to complete their homework and clean their rooms and practice their instruments. It's hard juggling my roles as Brilliant Writer, Blog Cruise Director and Amazing Mom. Don't worry, though. I'll return to lead you on another adventure soon.
