First up, last week the bloggy goodness that is Corndog tagged me with the Caesar's Bath thing which runs:
List five things that people in your circle of friends or peer group are wild about, but you can’t really understand the fuss over.
I responded in his comments that I had no circle of friends, but that was somehow lost in the aether. I received a miraculous reprieve when he imagined that my Mission Statement was a cryptic answer, as perhaps it was, but in fact I had taken the matter under advisement and the result was an incredibly long post I was hoping to make short in time for some Saturday hilarity. I still may.
Then Kathy, whose blog is quietly excellent in its quiet excellence, and whose name for such exercises, Slambook! we hereby vote to enshrine, stabbed me with the Huffington Blog Meme: Which five people, alive or dead, would you like to see blog? That one I did in the car driving home.
I'd rather name five people who could never blog again, but hey, play the game by its rules:
Webb Wilder, the pride of Hattiesburg, MS, whom some of you may know from Politically Incorrect but the cognoscenti know as The Last of the Full Grown Men and an eponymous kick-ass band.
Michael Harrington once upon a time the best known socialist in America, which Bill Buckley compared to being "the tallest building in Topeka." Elitist.
A Group Blog with Seth Green, James Brown, Amy Tan, Kate Moss, and Henry Clay, called Earth Tones.
Hannah Arendt. Now more than ever.
Chuang-tsu Chinese philosopher and stand-up comic.
Too busy right now to see who hasn't gotten this yet.
