To avoid accusations of wallowing, I thought I'd better change the subject from our failed babymaking attempt. Every now and then (I don't want you to think I spend too much time thinking about blogging when I'm not actually doing it; that would be just over the top) I muse on how I would really like to share my favourite bloggers, in particular:
- Katya, you'd really like ThirdCat - essential reading for any smart stay-at- home mother of young boys. Heather, you'd like it too, but you're new to blogland so it may be too much of a leap (Katya - you remember Heather, my best friend from high school, fantastic musician, I shared that house in Sth Yarra with her? And Heather - Katya was my best friend from uni - you met her a few times. Heather has three boys, some of whom I think are the same age as yours K.)
- Mel & Mona, you need to head over to Comicstriphero - sarky Canberra dyke who watches way too much Idol
- Danny you must check out Beware of the God - as a fellow survivor of extremely religious parents you'll understand my fascination with keeping track of the latest ridiculous activities of those of a Higher Spiritual Path. You'll also like Rodney Croome's blog for updates on gay rights stuff all around Australia, although he can come across, Phillip Adams style, as a tad self-important - but I guess that's okay, he has had a huge impact on gay & lesbian rights in Australia.
- Lovergirl have a look at Personal Political - she's kind of my role model for how I want to be by the time I'm fifty - smart, confident, informed and opinionated, not to mention parenting ! If you get a chance check out Elsewhere too, she's the Alice ashtanga yogini creative writing triathlete, I bet you know people in common...six degrees and all that. If I can't become Susoz at PP, I want to be El, okay? Consider yourself warned.
- Hilary - did I mention how impressed I was by your speech at the HREOC inquiry into gay & lesbian rights? Stunned into silence, I was; I haven't heard you in full flight before. Try Pavlov's Cat; you'll like her style. She pulls everything apart with a few pithy observations.
- And Grey, of course it has to be Larvateus Prodeo & Global Voices - a left-leaning commentary on Australian politics and a hub of international bloggers.
