Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

A Bit of Late-Night ‘Forward Thinking’

Hey, I almost missed Buzz‘s latest Blog It Forward! Damn!

Well, to make it up to you — you know, assuming you give an airborne rodent’s heinie — I’ll break down and pick out two blogs to pimp this evening. That’s two for the price of one, folks. You don’t get this kind of deal just anywhere.

(Not from hookers in Vegas, I can tell you that for certain. I could also tell you that those high heels they wear hurt like hell. But I won’t, because that might just make it a little too real. Let’s move on.)

So, two BIFs, eh? Well, how about these:

I just met Disillusioned of American Diatribe today (why, yes, it does pay to have good timing; why do you ask?), but we’ve hit it off famously already, and she’s definitely worth a read.

(Even when you get past the part in her most recent post where she pimps me for no good reason. Come to think of it, that’s the least sparkling part of her site, because it involves me — I tend to bring the whole team down, and make all the players around me worse. And angry, and sometimes a little gassy. Yeah, so forget that part, and move on to the good stuff. You’ll like American Diatribe; go check it out.)

The other object of my adoration this time around has got to be Flip over at Here Somewhere. Seriously, what’s not to like? She’s smart, funny, witty, and — big extra bonus — Swedish.

(And no, she doesn’t talk like that. I asked already.

The ‘meatballs’ question is still up for grabs, though — get it while it’s hot!)

Anyway, Flip has also been nice enough to correspond with me recently, and even answered a set of my interview questions. (And she got five long posts out of them, so you can see she’s a verbose little puppy… just like me!) But all of her ‘Stuff’ (the term she prefers to ‘blog’) is very interesting, and well worth a thorough perusal. Go, Flip!

Well, that’s it for my BIF duties, I suppose.

While I’m here, I’ll add a quite footnote about the Blog Madness 2003 tourney — despite my best efforts, I was thwacked out of the winner’s bracket last round, and dumped into the ‘loserly’ pool. I’m not sure yet who I’m up against, but the voting starts up again tomorrow. Hopefully, I can stave off elimination and live to avenge my beating. I’ll tell you more as soon as I know — be sure to check it out!

    You know, yvonne… nobody but us is probably ever gonna get that, but it means the world to me. You rock.

    And neither of us had to handle snakes, or wash feet, or anything. That’s so fricking cool. *sniff*

  3. Flip says:

    Shucks, Charlie, that was nice of you

  4. Thanks Charlie, now I’m all speechless…damnit
