Blogville Today

I read a lot of blogs and it’s always fun to see all the smart and crazy and funny and interesting things people write about. Here are some I found especially noteworthy today:

Yoni Freedhoff over at Weighty Matters has posted a link to the Trans Canada Trail site where you can virtually walk across Canada by logging your daily walks until you rack up 18,000 kilometers – the length of the trail.

A reminder on Ottawa Street Style about Ottawa Fashion Week, starting this Saturday! Lots of fun stuff and a day pass is only $20. I don’t much care for OSS’s banner though – to leggy.

If you thought kitty blogging was fun you should try duck blogging – Ev & Kwatch’s new favorite hobby.

Say Hey! to Megan’s funky new website.

Meanie has just ended a long-term love affair with Juan Valdez. It’s very sad and she needs all the support she can get.

Jazz at Haphazard Life is having a cynical day. She (and her new actor/director/writer boyfriend) doesn’t think the UN’s motives are entirely pure.

The Dwarf has begun a new series that he claims will define a Revolutionary New Dating Paradigm. Even if he never comes up with a shred of useful material, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on him anyway.

The always pithy Deb on the Rocks has found the answer to one of the universe’s eternal questions: Where do all the socks go?

And, if you think kitty blogging and ducky blogging is fun, you should check out Carbon Capture and Storage blogging with Milan. But seriously, this guy is an encyclopedia, but with mad, mad passion.

A&J need real estate advice.

Mike Sornberger also thinks at least one side of the escalator is meant for walking. Thank you, Mike.

Who me? Cynical? Ha!

We do need real estate advice. Please share your thoughts on our blog!

Thanks for the comment, and I'm glad someone agrees with me. When I was heading to work yesterday morning, I thought, "Maybe I was a little harsh."

Then I got on the escalator, where someone held up a line of 5 people, all trying to get by. Maybe I wasn't harsh enough. :)

Jazz - Never. You've just got bad-ass attitude

A&J - My real estate advice is that home-ownership is a bottomless money pit. You guys are young and should be using your disposable income for fun, not roof repairs.

Grandy - So many blogs, so little time.

Meanie - Good to know. I guess it's okay to tell you now that Juan has been seeing a LOT of other people.

Mike - Definitely not harsh enough. There should be a law. I seem to remember that in Toronto you get yelled at if you don't let people by.
