Mit_moi posts the best business parable of all time. And she tells it at length with the flair and panache with which I tell my favorite joke. I’m going to print it and hang it in my cube. Mit_moi is a super-engaging blogger who totally gets me; i’ll be following her throughout the month.
Also, a blogger who works in the wine biz directed me to the charming quaffability who drew my attention to a CA winery owner who uses his profits to sponsor bills that limit abortion rights and oppose stem cell research.
I don’t want to get too deep into my politics (yet), but if anything bothers me more than people who want to limit a woman’s right to manage their own body its people who want to impose their religion on science. With so many wines in the world, i think i’ll hardly notice the different as i boycott all of his.
I am now getting a little weary of blogs about small children, which is total hypocrisy, because if i had a small child i would be broadcasting their life to a blog 24/7. It’s the modern equivalent of my mom taking constant pictures of me and then making storybooks like “Peter Goes to the Zoo,” which she would later use to teach me to read. (Except, i am far from sick of Whoopee, who likes my favorite John Lennon song and named her baby Esme).
It’s also hyprocrisy because not everyone feels the need to turn NaBloPoMo into some sort of blog rebooting jihad against free time.
Kid Sis In Hollywood sounds as if she’s about to get a star and/or composer attached to her script – awesome! She also links to an amazing video compiling eight years worth of daily self-pics into a time-lapse aging process. I’ve always wanted to do this! Maybe if i get a digital camera for Christmas i’ll start (except, OCD Godzilla will demand that i find a way to have the camera positioned exactly the same distance from my face every day … what if one of my arms gets shorter?).
Rebirthing Me is taking the reboot idea a step further by working on reinventing herself. Her stories are riveting. Snippy is single and refreshingly snarky. Another blog i’ll be revisiting. Also, Moose in the Kitchen, who is simply funny and charming. Teacher Education is fascinating, and i think Rabi might enjoy it.
And, finally, Doogie is gay. A self-proclaimed Gay Pagan from Erie, PA offers his take.
