Thirteen Fun Posts [June]

2. My Grandmother's Home by Michelle [Komabi + Crow's Feet]

3. Choosing to Write Changes Everything by Greg [Greg's Writing Blog]
You choose to write today and it's exciting. You'll be rich and famous in a year, maybe two. And it's not so much about the money because you have something important to say and you love words and everyone tells you how great you write...read more

4. Tug of War by Adam [old things under the sun]
What a funny name. It could be a hand-job that you get when you are on R&R, or that feeling that young people get when they think about joining the Army. Of course the other tug-of-war...read more

5. Speaking in tongues the one and only Domestic Minx
You have no doubt gleaned from these rather rude and rampant pages, dear reader, that my tongue has oft been tied when it comes to saying no to the demon drink... read more

11. The Dandelion Tree... The Prologue

12. Politically Incorrect by TwistedSister... totally pissed off!
I grew up in a home with a developmentally delayed, epileptic sister. One word that was absolutely taboo at our house was "retarded." It was as bad or worse than any curse word to my parents and it was not to be tolerated. Our parents taught us...read more

13. A study in blog types by Bobby

Random Magus said...

I was reading and laughing - I have a certain predilection myself much to the chagrin of hubby particularly when one of my closest friend who can can be as notorious as myself is around. Then her husband and mine are on the sidelines watching in distress. But what fun!

PS: amongst others.. yes and of course I don't have any recollection of it the morning after ;)

meleah rebeccah said...

Thank you! [blushing] for the mention. That was a HARD post to write / admit too. Thank you for making it easier to let that kind of stuff/ feelings HANG OUT in the OPEN (like the blogosphere). You are a GEM.

Jod{i} said...

How Incredibly creative! I love these kinds of 'lists'...I did a side bar story a while back, it was fun, a challenge but fun...
Wonderful 13 blogs!

Blur Ting said...

Bobby Revell said...

I knew I was number 13 before I read it!Does on person have one file contaiing every linked post? In your template settings, under commenting do you have "new posts have backlinks" and show backlinks ON? I dont see the little "create a link" at the bottom of your posts. U'm sorry Amber, I know you don't like messing with that stuff. I love your post and will have it out thursday:):):)

Michelle said...

Thank you for putting my grandmother's house on your list. She'd be so thrilled to read that, heck I'm thrilled to read that! :-D

Some great choices there too, I've read a few, but there are some new ones there I'll have to go read now.

Thanks Random

Random Magus said...

Meleah: I loved that post of yours, you know not at work but with people I often feel like an outsider I get along with either people a lot older than me or a lot younger. It's like being a square peg in a round hole.

Jod{i}: I have been wanting to do this ever since I saw Bobby's post linkluvlicious [I think that's what it as called]. I think its a great idea. Inn fact at the end of every month I'll do the same T13

Blur Ting: I love all your posts especially the traveling ones

Random Magus said...

Paisley:
It was one of 'Ahhh' posts for me too. I like all your posts but that one stuck in me head

Empress Bee (of the High Sea):
Thanks, I'll do it again next month

Bobby Revell:
I am really bad at this you know that but if you send me instructions with steps I'd be delighted.
This idea originated from your post by the way
And the list was in random order ;)

Random Magus said...

Michelle:
That one was among the first few pf your posts that I read and was captivated

HollyGL said...

Random, Thank you so much for mentioning my post. That particular installment in my little blog is especially close to my heart, and it means a lot to me that you enjoyed it.

Random Magus said...

HollyGl: I loved that post especially the last few lines...

'...she would gently remind me to pay attention to the good things. "They multiply that way"..'
