well, that's quite something!
someone and someone else found me thought-provoking. I am surprised and flattered. here I thought I'd been a major slack-ass lately. I had thought it was time to do another "goodbye, cruel blogosphere" post - that always seems to ensure that I will start posting with renewed vigor.
But nonetheless, someone thought I was thinky enough to tag me, so here we go.
The rules go pretty much as follows: 1) If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think. 2) Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme, and claim their graphic doodah. Please, remember to tag blogs with real merits, i.e. relative content, and above all - blogs that really get you thinking.
I bet you can all guess who I'm gonna tag. I am really too predictable for words...
in no particular order:
Bea. oh thorn in my paw, oh pea under my mattress! my thoughts coalesce around you as mother-of-pearl around a grain of sand.
Veronica. she's just my favorite li'l ol' smartypants. her blog is deep and broad and fun to read. I highly recommend the Nine Pearls Experience.
the fine folks at Feminist Critics. a good place to sharpen one's sword of rhetoric.
The great and powerful Ginmar. she provokes a thought or two, no question.
Rootie. why? because it's personal, that's why.
I think I read in the Wall Street Journal's obit of Alan Greenspan (or similar source) that Mr. Greenspan spent a large portion of his morning reviewing the "Liberal Press". When asked why, he said "well, if I spent all my time reading opinions I already agree with, I'd never learn anything."
words to live by.
good catch, nikki!
reports of Mr. Greenspan's death are, apparently, greatly exaggerated.
damn my faulty memory.
so whose obit did I read? or why was I reading about greenspan?
huh. boy is my face red!
or why I was reading an article about him.
guess I better start paying attention.
well...Thanks, tho! I'm not sure I want to know what sort of thoughts I provoke.
