I just finished reading Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five and now I’m writing this review of my week in blogging and a review of some of the blogs I’ve been reading. So it goes.
an unfinishedperson (in this unfinished universe)
I didn’t start out very well or end very well, with skipping my Sustenance Sunday and Feetfirst Friday post, but I had a few in between.
- Meandering Monday: Spanked: in which I highlighted a post from Humor Bloggers Fantasy Football League Blog, where I also post. It was about my being beat that week by a female opponent and the “traumatic” memories it brought back to mind for me. 😉
- Tuesday’s Tunes: MOR earworms of the 70s and 80s, where I share two songs that just seem to stay embedded in my psyche.
- Wordless Wednesday: Vote for the Pumpkin President: A surreal painting by Mark Ryden.
- Thirsty Thursday: Remembering In The Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak, highlighting the first of a new feature at my reading blog called Monday’s Memory.

- I’m walking: Lately that’s mostly what I’ve been doing as I got rid of my car and am working part-time at a bookstore near where I live.
Just A (Reading) Fool
- I’ll skip my Sunday Salon post because it was just a rehash of the previous week and how I was trying to continuing The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon (which I still haven’t finished).
- For Monday’s post, see post above about In The Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak.
- Tuesday’s Meme Things: This week’s entry for Tuesday Thingers and It’s Tuesday, Where are You? Thingers topic: Favorite authors in Library Thing?
- Booking Through Thursday: More on In The Night Kitchen.
- Friday’s Finds: Rex Libris: I, Librarian and Superman of Tomorrow: a graphic novel about a superhero librarian? For real? Yep.
- Today I issued myself a Personal Banned Books Week Challenge: A book a day in honor of Banned Books Week, which starts today and goes through next Saturday. The Vonnegut book, mentioned earlier, was part of that challenge.
Journeying with the Saints
- Awake, awake with a new natural heart, a new spirit: Reflections on readings from Ezekiel
- Sunday: I continued with a theme from the previous week with a tongue-in-cheek look at South Korean culture. This time I give a critique of Korean commercials in Actress 서우 Seo Woo: A fine example of South Korean culture.
- Monday: An award from FU- or is that FU, I got another award? Either way, I rock. in which I thank my friend, Skip DeKades at Future Update for an award he gave me.
- Thursday: Infatuation hurts, wounds, scars, marks: Remembering my top three infatuations and more schlock rock from the 70s and 80s.
Sorry, there may not be a lot of you this week. I’m not an egotist, but I’ve been busy this week with work, so I haven’t had a lot of time to read you. I hope to be able to catch up some this week.
But here’s a few posts that may make you laugh, or at least make you smile:
- Chris Cameron @ Angry Seafood is one of the better humor bloggers out there in the blogosphere and here, he proves it with this post on a serious subject The $700 billion bailout deal is done…wait a minute…it’s not.
- My sister @ Boondock Rambling told me this story earlier in the week about something dumb she said and then posted it on her blog. She does obituaries for a newspaper. So you might only can imagine or just go see for yourself.
- Nick @ Buffalo This gives yet another funny post on the Large Hadron Collider and links to his other posts on the subject in case you missed the other ones. I’m trying to highlight bloggers new to me on my unfinished rambling(s) blog and he was the featured blog this week.
- Doug @ Taunt Vortex puts his own funny spin with a hula hoop on the collapse of Washington Mutual Inc. (WaMu).
And last, but least…I’ve redone the tabs at Just A (Reading) Fool to make it a little less cluttered. I’ve also cleaned up the sidebar on a few of the blogs, plus added a sticky note that explains the connection among the blogs on each blog. This way, hopefully, you’ll be able to see the connection (if tenuous, with unfinished ramblings) among them.
