I resist the urge.
Blog writing pre-supposes that there is a readership for one's musings, but it can be hard work. I resist the urge to bitch about personal details. If I wanted to do that, I'd keep a personal diary ~ under lock and key. So I turn to Random Blogs
, linked to on the right, and seek inspiration from others, hoping to find some common threads or blogs which seek to entertain and/or educate rather than pontificate. Or bitch.
So, what do I find?
is "bitchin' because I don't see any 'male odor-prevention' products other than deoderant. Why are there no male crotch sprays or penis wipes? Why don't they have special pads for men on the off chance that they leak during the day or some fluid escapes the penis? Why is feminine odor portrayed as so offensive?
Then there's Annie Bunny
who has singular problems. "I was sweating profusely when I got out of the car. Killed the engine twice in less than an hour. Still hating the stick shift. Death to all phallic symbols!
Oh boy, I thought. How about a male perspective?
No joy from Ridiculous Redhead
either. "Hi. I am getting no respect in this house. I spent 6hrs working on a herdsmanship schedule and my sister comes home and says that's not right and i need to change the format. I was trying soo hard to do it right. and she just comes in and complains... i give up... grrr.
I hate the pink template he's used. I wonder if it matches his ridiculous hair colour?
Sorry. See? Now they've got me bitching.

"These are some of the characteristics of the state of mind which the creation and appreciation of haiku

And the inspirational.
had the following:
It was a Great Day!
"I was lying on the grass, staring at the stars surrounded by thousands of my fellow Canadians, when I realized how good it is to be alive.
And then I got stuck in incomprehension.
seems to be a tolerant sort of guy, but I'm not sure what he's trying to say. "I saw a fifteen-year-old black-hatter kid take his tefillin off by ashrei-uva letzion. Okay, I thought, maybe he has to go to work, or to school, or is in a rush somewhere. His buddy came over to chat and they yukked it up for a while, long after davening was over.
is Portugese but likes Joseph Arthur. And so do I.
probably writes beautifully. His blog is certainly a visual treat although I don't recognize the script let alone the language. Can anyone enlighten me?
OK. Back to Diamond Geezer
who never seems to let me down. And lo, he's got a link to an unofficial historian of J.Lyons products
. I failed to find a mention of their square fruit pies or the famous tea houses, but the thought of a Mivvi
has got me salivating. If I can't resist the urge, I'll have to make do with a Walls Paddle Pop.
