A blog challenge!

I discovered a link today (which I promptly put into my blogroll) that lets you find random blogs. Some are great, some are not so great, some are truly awful. ( I hope mine doesn’t fall into the last category!)

So I decided to make a blog challenge out of it, and challenge some folks to find 3 random blog entries that they liked. Be warned however, I did actually come across a blog expounding on the joys of a “playa” and his female exploits (although his porn evaluation was truly hilarious, it isn’t appropriate for my blog), as well as a blog expounding on the joys of…poop. Yep. The guy blogs about his “experiences.” Just…disturbing. I think I need a shower after accidentally reading a couple entries on that one!

With no further ado, here are my 3 entries for my little challenge:

The first one I just happened upon (well his site that is) and I just love his perspective and writing style. When I found the entry about his new laptop freaking out, it made me laugh so hard, because I would probably freak out in the same way. Ok so I HAVE freaked out in the same way. So head on over to read the post Eleven Screwdrivers and Nine Screws and check out his blog too, Wyspianski Unwinding. Its a pretty good read πŸ™‚

Then I played around some more and found White Man’s Gandhi Blog. For some reason I’m loving this blog. I’m thinking of adding it to my blogroll. Her entry Our Punjabi Air Conditioning Maintenance Man was a good one that seemed to reel me right in, hook, line, and sinker. This is definitely one I’m going to be following closely.

Finding the third one has been a real challenge. I found the first two literally within 5 minutes. They were the first and third blogs I looked at. However I’ve literally gone through dozens more since then before finally finding one of the best sites I’ve seen yet. Its by a gentleman who simply collects random news stories that interests him from all over the net. To quote his site: “Oldster’s View is intended to be a news aggregation site which presents the more unusual or just timelyme.jpg news items. No blood or gore or car accidents or fires or cameras stuck in the face of grieving parents or any of the other β€œnews” that your TV proudly presents. There will be some occasional tech stuff but mostly just general interest items. Enjoy.” Oh yeah, I can deal with THAT! This entry, Woman’s Viewpoint, really caught my eye and gave me a much-needed chuckle this week. The blog is Oldster’s View, and is definitely worth a gander. This one is going up on the blogroll πŸ™‚

So there ya go…now I’m going to tag Carrie from Chocolate, The Other White Meat and Lynnae from From Under the Clutter (the double “from” looks weird but oh well, I’m too tired to be creative). So there ya go girls, find 3 interesting entries from wherever and post em on your blog πŸ™‚

Happy Hump Day everyone!

My Meme

Carrie at Chocolate The Other White Meat gave me this meme so here goes:

1. Who do you most closely associate with in the Bible? Oh wow…tough one. I suppose Mary Magdalene. I mean well, but I made some very poor decisions in my past. And…I still do sometimes.

2. What is the first thing you want to ask God when you get to Heaven? I understand the bad things happening to “good” people, but why must terrible things happen to the innocent children? Child molestation just…its a hard thing for me to deal with. I can NOT understand why a CHILD must be subjected to such horror, and no one has ever been able to satisfactorily explain it to me. This is one of the real sticking points for me in dealing with my faith, or the feeling of having a lack of faith.

3. Why? See the above … I kinda got ahead of myself…

4. What did you want to be when you grew up? The Bionic Woman. Seriously. OK well I did grow out of that. I wanted to be a pilot and/or astronaut. Flying was my great passion and I miss it greatly.

5. What is your favorite book series? Before July, I would have said R.A. Salvatore’s Drizzt series. Actually, I think that’s still my all-time favorite. I’m reading the Left Behind books right now though (on book 9 now) and I’m loving them, so I’d have to put them in at a close second…tied with Piers Anthony’s Xanth books πŸ™‚

The Rules of the Meme:
1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like [the food you hate most in all the world]. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You will update your [blog] with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

OK not that different since I’ve done it before, but hey, I like Monty Python, so the quote had to be the title πŸ™‚

A friend posted a blog thing quiz on my board, and well, it reminded me that I needed to post some since I haven’t in a while. SO without any further ado…

You Are 24% California

You’re not from California – don’t try to game this quiz!

No huge surprise there…

Your Mood Ring is Orange

Stimulating ideas
Full of desires


Your Love Song Is

Yellow by Coldplay

“Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah they were all yellow”

You’re so in love, it’s like a drug.

What? By who??

How You Life Your Life

You are honest and direct. You tell it like it is.
You’re laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think.
You tend to have one best friend you hang with, as opposed to many aquaintences.
You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren’t attainable.

OK THAT one was pretty darned accurate lol

And last but not least, I couldn’t resist this one…


Nutty and gooey – you always satisfy.

Whoa…too funny…and my favorite candy to boot πŸ™‚
