Before I talk about anything else, here’s today’s comic fix:


I want to thank the very kind young ladies:

Story De-Pot


Chantal and Shekinah

for both nominating me in the same week for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

Rules for the award

5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award
6. Contact your nominees to let them know you have nominated them. Provide a link to your post.
7. Proudly display the award logo (or buttons) on your blog, whether on your side bar, ABOUT page, or a special page for awards.

7 Things About Me

1. Two days a week, I don’t eat meat.
2. I don’t watch the tee vee very much at all. Sometimes I watch something–like I started watching Most Extreme Elimination Challenge–online a little bit. I have never seen Game of Thrones or The Wire or Breaking Bad. Never seen Archer or Bob’s Burgers. I know a little about them from the Internet.
3. I spend too much time on the Internet (and reading blogs)!
4. Every couple of months, I watch one movie from beginning to end.
5. I don’t own a car.
6. I’m Taoist! What does that mean? It means that I believe everything came from the same source–the Tao–and we are all a part of that source, and when we die, we remain a part of that source. Everything is here, in the universe, and it all belongs here and stays here. Life is an illusion. You can find out more about Taoism here: and here:
7. I speak German pretty well. I used to speak some other languages pretty well, too, but I’ve been neglecting them so… Yeah. That’s what happens when you don’t work on something! It fades away.


Now I have a big problem. I have way more than 15 blogs that I find inspiring and I can’t leave anyone out because that’s just plain wrong. I read a lot of blogs every day, and so many of you with great blogs come here, that it’s impossible to pick only 15. I tried.

So here’s what I decided. I chose 15 for today to satisfy the award gods. Because the poll shows most of you (over 50%) want me to post about myself regularly, and because there are so many great blogs out there, I’m going to use your super material as something to spring off of. That is, once a week I’ll pick a topic from a blog I’ve read, and go on about that. And then I’ll link to that blog and a few others I liked that week. Does that sound fair? Then everyone cool will get seen, and you get to read me ramble about something, so everybody wins! Woot!
Let me know what you think in the comments, please! Love you!
