Sometimes I Think

Thanks to Tracey at More Than a Minivan Mom for calling me a Thinking Blogger. I'm supposed to:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to five blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Proudly display the “Thinking Blogger Award” with a link to the post that you wrote

I'm pretty sure I've done #2. I tried to do #3, but I just couldn't get the little picture to display, though I think the link is there. I'm not sure I'm smart enough to deserve a Thinking Blogger Award.

And as Tracey mentioned, I just can't bring myself to play along with the tagging games. But there are two blogs in particular that make me think harder than I am accustomed. To. Accustomed to think. Ah, whatever. It is still Wednesday, right?

Anyway, I like to read detritus. because suttonhoo is way smarter than I am, and more well-traveled, and a better photographer, and has a better vocabulary, with artsier friends and a more sophisticated palate. In fact, most of the time I have no idea what she's talking about, but I smile and nod and say, "Oh, absolutely" so she won't know what an idiot I am. I mostly like her because she posts, like, every day. Even without NaBloPoMo. Or even twice a day. Every once in awhile, I can almost participate in a conversation in the comments section, and on those days, I feel wicked smaht.

The other blog that regularly makes me furrow my brow in an attempt to think is sweet juniper! I'd like to be Dutch, except that I didn't retain nearly enough of my college education and I have no interest in design and I don't get the appeal of institutional chairs and I don't want to live in Detroit. But he writes beautifully and sentimentally, and he's my SAHD hero when it comes to how much time and what kind of time he spends with Juniper. Before Thumper arrived, it was through Dutch's blog that I lived vicariously and dreamed of what SAHDdom would be like.

So thanks again, Tracey, especially for giving me a blog entry. Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! Hopefully Biggest Brother will let me use his computer tomorrow so I can maintain this entry-per-day fiasco. I'd hate to make it all the way into the twenties and then blow it.

oh you sweet charmer, you just made my day. thanks for saying all those dear things, even if they're not even nearly true.

and it gives me a chance to tell you how much I've been enjoying your posting every day -- and your lovely guest blogger, too. I'll try to be louder about it -- I'm such a lurker.

have a great Thanksgiving!

Rodi, you picked a good smart blogger in Ms. Hoo. I'm lucky enough to know her in person (and that is said without any "nya nya nya" at all), and she's just as smart in real life as she is online. But she's smart wrapped in kind and tied up with funny. Sometimes she says things that make me cock my head like a puppy, and she'll take pity on me and laugh and slow down so I can understand.
