Hey all — got a (semi-)serious one for your today.
A far, far better man than I (well, far, far more popular, at least… and probably ‘better’, too — I mean, how hard could that be?), Buzz, has suggested a little game called Blog It Forward, where everyone within the sound of his.. um, site… you know what I mean — is invited to showcase a blog that they particularly enjoy, respect, or envy for it’s yummy goodness.
Well, in my case, it’s all three. Maybe you’re way ahead of me on this one, but I just can’t stop reading Sundry Mourning. Not that I’ve tried, really. Sure, there’s a patch out there to help people quit, and there’s that icky-tasting gum, and… but this isn’t about me, dammit. It’s about Sundry. Here’s what I know:
She lives in the Seattle area, where the weather sometimes gets her down, with husband JB and dog Dog. (See, creative! Her dog is named ‘Dog’. No, it’s ironic! It’s clever… oh, never mind.) And she works at… Workplace.
(Look, if you didn’t get the ‘Dog’ thing, I don’t think I can explain this one to you…)
She posts pictures on her site, but it’s not a ‘fotoblog’. On the other hand, when it is something akin to a fotoblog, it can be very, very, very, very good.
(I still can’t read/look at that entry without laughing out loud.)
But most of all, Sundry is hilariously funny. And cool, yet self-effacing. And adventurous. And beer-drinking. And profane — oh, so very profane. In a good way.
In other words, she’s all of the things that I strive to be here, plus lovely and talented and other good things to boot. And she makes it look easy.
(Not to mention good — go find one of her self-pictures; you’ll see.)
Really, there’s nothing bad I can say about her site.
(Well… I can always say something bad. But in this case, it’s just that she doesn’t have the time to update six times a day — do you hear me, Workplace, JB, and Dog? Stop distracting her, dammit! — and that Sundry Mourning isn’t indexed on blo.gs, so I can’t see at a glance when she updates. Oh, and she’s funnier than me. Yeah, that’s bad, too.)
Anyway, that’s my ‘Blog It Forward’ homage, and I sincerely hope you take the time to go check out Sundry Mourning.
(Yes, in all of its yummy goodness.)
I’ll be back later with the usual crap, but I wanted to play Buzz’ little reindeer game first. (Go check him out, too, by the way. Two blogs in a day — plus me, of course — isn’t gonna kill ya.) Catch you later!Permalink | 2 Comments
