Me Want

A big ‘ol um thanks to A.L. for reminding me about these wunnerful beasts:

Yeah, I know. Not now. Gotta ride the one I’ve got a while first. But me loooves me a Monster.

I’m A Fickle Bitch

But then you knew that, so this should come as no surprise – my favorite blog of the moment is Stavros the Wonder Chicken / Empty Bottle because of this phrase (used as justification for beginning to blog): “…my geek cilia started wiggling…” I think I gotta make that my new sig line. Not sure if I should even give context, as those who got ’em will understand, and those who don’t don’t need to know.

Update: And the Wonder Chicken quotes Eggers too! A few juicy ones:

–“What matters is that you do good work. What matters is that you produce things that are true and will stand.”

–“No is for wimps. No is for pussies. No is to live small and embittered, cherishing the opportunities you missed because they might have sent the wrong message.”

… girlish squeal of delight and much licking of pages to both of them! Gods I have such good taste in blogs, I amaze myself.

Geeking Hard

Ohmigod I’m in lurve!!! Check out languagehat even if you’re not remotely a language or linguistics geek like me (but I’ll forgive your one-language-speaking-pitiful-self just ‘cuz you’re cute), it’s super keen neato cool with a list of other links that spiral and branch off into the internet’s web o’lanugage-related stuff and a wonderfully clear, concise explanation of Arabic naming practices, which is what sucked my eyeballs into the blog in the first place. Ack – I’m losing my English, I’m so excited. Guess I’ll really have to finish my thesis now, huh?
