Okay... My new laptop still hasn't arrived... And, of course, I'm going batty because it's just down the bloody road from my house!
So, I have a bit of advice should any of you find yourselves moving any time soon. Do NOT, under any circumstance, live within spitting distance of UPS. You will just drive yourself crazy. (And yes. In case you are curious, I really am a handful at Christmas time too.)
Anyway, since I am sitting here killing time until I sign for my stuff on Monday sometime between the hours of 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM (Yeah. You'd think they'd narrow it down a little, eh?), I figured I'd start a thread with one thing in mind: Blogs.
Here's what I was thinking:
1.) In the comment thread, I want you to plug a blog and leave a link to that blog.
2.) You can plug only one blog or journal, and it can't be your own if you have one.
3.) Also (and here's the tricky part), it can't be a blog or journal that someone has already previously put in the comment thread. And, I'm talking about the actual blog or journal titles and not the screen names they're under. For example, you can plug one journal from Paul, and, since he's got more than one journal, someone else can post a different journal from Paul if they wish.
In other words, there can be no repeats in the names of the blogs and journals, so you've got to read the comments to see what people have posted, and be "original."
Anyway, the blog I want to plug is Barry's UK Blog, Waffle and Whinge.
I really like reading Barry's writing, and just a handful of sentences into any entry, and it becomes pretty clear that this UK postman has got a great talent for delivering words. He's a nice guy, and I think that whenever anyone sends a postcard or letter to England, they should write "Hi Barry!" on there somewhere.
So, there ya have it. Follow the directions, dig in your favorites folder and bookmarks and leave a link to the blog or journal in the comments. Just remember, no repeats! And, have fun!
