Lazy Sunday Links

For those of you who are new here, on Sundays I like to post links to other cool sites I've found through the week.  And since I'm participating in NaBloPoMo, I thought I'd feature other brave souls.

Actually, this NaBloPoMo thing is so much fun!  With the ginourmous blog roll Eden's put together, it's like we're all in some huge conference room together, wearing name tags and milling around, drinking warm white wine and peering near-sightedly at each others' chests.

"Oh!  You're from Cleeeeeeveland?  Wow!  I've never even been to Cleveland!  What a coincidence!"

Like I said.  Too much fun.

Here's who I've discovered this week, participants all.

First up is Cynical Dad.  Very cool, very funny, although he does talk about football rather a lot.  I try not to hold that against him.  Be sure to check out his "best of" selections.

The Belgian Waffle is also participating!  Yay!  I've been following her blog for awhile, so it's nice to see a familiar face at this thing. hails from New Zealand.  Haddy is a dog and there's another dog and some kids and all sorts of funny stuff.  This one makes it in for introducing the phrase "up at the crack of arse thirty" to my life.  I can't wait to use it.  Well, actually, I can.  It means really way too early.

Corina has the lovely blog Down to Earth Mama, on which she features her beautiful photography and bits and pieces about her life.

She also put me on her NaBloPoMo blogroll and I appreciate it.

And just yesterday I found Shoes On Wrong.  She lives in Detroit (I lived in Detroit!), is very funny and lives with the kitty who is my favourite CuteOverload post EVAR!

And then there's Expateek.  She's moved around a lot, which is very inspiring to me.  And possibly a little dangerous.

I feel like I've forgotten someone.  If it's you, please leave me a comment and I'll add you in next week. 

Hope you're all having a lovely lazy Sunday!

Corina - You're welcome! I'm so glad I found your blog!

And Jamie - hey!

Barb, where ARE you on nablopomo? I have my name badge on, but you must be lingering near the free bar, because I can't find you...

Barb McMahon said...

...hanging out in the kitchen, as usual....

Hey, thanks! But I'm afraid I'm hardly inspiring.... just doing the best I can all over the planet, and usually being very crabby about it all.

Love your blog, and esp the profile piccy!

Oh, but crabby is good!
