8 8 I forget what 8 was for

How did it get to be the week before Thanksgiving?  Seriously?

Anyway, this is a leading up to Thanksgiving post.   When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of sharing and I think of friends (yeah, and being thankful, too).  But really, for me it’s more about the sharing and the friends.  So today I wanted to share some of the blogs that I’ve been reading lately.  Some of these I’ve mentioned already.  Most I haven’t.

  1. Kiss & Blog:  from a post last week called Friday Fluffer – Rock Her World; “One advantage of writing a vaguely about sex is that people send me interesting things.” We go on to learn all about porn arithmatic.
  2. I Hate the Way You Eat Cereal: A group blog that takes a comedic look at dating.  A recent post that had me laughing out loud was Little Willy.  Just click and read.  And laugh.
  3. 30-F-London which bills itself as the “(sex) life and (kinky) times of a 30 year old nymphet in London.  From her recent post, The things I love about men – the-not-so-tall, “… I mean, we’re all the same lying down!”
  4. The blogs of Bitch Magazine have been making me very happy lately.  Very, very happy.  Even when they’re writing about things that I find extremely frustating (read – Douchebag Decree:  Robert Rector Hopes You’re Hungry for an example of a great but frustrating post).
  5. F*cking in Brooklyn: I just tripped over this blog last week (or so) and I can’t believe it took me so long to fine it (the tag line is, “Love as a life or death experience”).  No sneak preview here, as the very talented author is going to be this Sunday’s guest author.
  6. The Daily What.  There are no words.  I’m not sure I can be friends with you if you don’t read this.
  7. First Person Singular calls itself “an online gathering place, resource guide (and yes, venting booth) for single women”.  Whatever. It’s well-written and the author, Wendy Braitman, drinks Makers Mark Manhattans and so she’s clearly an awesome person.
  8. Lastly, there are over a dozen blogs on this list.  I kinda put the group together and so they reflect who I like and respect (in other words, there isn’t a crappy site on the list).  I strongly suggest you taking a few minutes to read browse through them, maybe add them to your bookmarks…

Oh, and about that title. I’m incapable of making a list without hearing Kiss Off by the Violent Femmes, loudly, in my head.  So I figured I’d share that, too. Oh, and if you’re unfamiliar with the song you’ll catch on at about the 2:41 mark.

    I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record. : )

    Here in the desert of Arizona- our blogs are more about what to do when you get bit by a rattle snake. Of course there are the blogs about which horse trails to go, and of course the blogs about how to fix a steak over a campfire. Yup – different scene here in the wild west- of course, we can pack heat in public (far better than mace).

    I’m petitioning to have my permanent record opened under the freedom of information act.

    And THAT is another reason why I live in this corner of the country.
