Guess what I’ve been doing? Yes, poking around on the internet! I’ve been Ramblin’ With AM, and participating in Blog Delurking Week. I’m bad about visiting blogs but not commenting, so this week I’ve been trying to be more participatory. Thankyou, Alana, for the inspiration.
Some blog or other sent me to yadadarcyyada, which had me stumped until I zoned in on the operative word: DARCY. Yada-Darcy-yada, which anyone who ever had — or ever had a friend with — a Mr. Darcy obsession will instantly recognize. But yadadarcyyada is FAR from a Darcy blog. It’s funny, fresh, funny, wildly imaginative, and did I mention funny? Try this post: These Aren’t The Gifts You’re Looking For, for example.
Somehow, I stumbled onto Leigh’s Wordsmithery, and I’ll sure be going back there again. Despite the title, it’s another eclectic blog, which is my favorite kind.
And now, a post that is SO NSFW. Not because it’s naughty, but because you’ll be snorting Danish out your nose. Go to Distractify and read this post of a newbie’s live tweets while watching the original Star Wars trilogy. You’re welcome.
