A Slice of Life

Witty, down-to-earth, and great with a good cup of coffee.  That is what A Slice of Life is. 

I stumbled across this blog after Susan, the author, left a very nice comment on my own personal blog.  Little did I suspect that clicking on her name would lead me to several enjoyable musings.

So take a minute, pour yourself a cup of coffee and relax with a bit of A Slice of Life.

Tiny Cat Pants

According to the Blog Stats sidebar widget, Tiny Cat Pants — a very smart, funny, idiosyncratic blog — has tallied more than 23,000 hits since coming to WordPress March 03, 2007. Written semi-anonymously, by someone who calls herself Aunt B., Tiny Cat Pants takes on all comers, doles out sharp criticism for idiot politicians, picks fights with other bloggers, periodically redefines feminism to suit its author’s mood, and in general, has a heck of a good time not taking itself very seriously.

Gosh, it’s funny. If you visit, start with the FAQ page to acclimate yourself to its quirky sense of humor.

It can be moving, too. Here’s an example that impressed us:

“I came home from work today to find [my brother] the Butcher sprawled out on the floor in front of the TV. “How was your day?” he asked and I said, “I hate my life.” He asked, “Why?” And I said, “No good reason. Nothing bad happened. Everything is fine. I’m just miserable.” And he said, “I know just what you mean.”

“And you know, that’s the thing about brothers, when your brother says “I know just what you mean,’ you know it’s the truth. You know he’s looking right at you and really seeing you as a person he has loved his whole life and who he knows as well as he knows himself. And it’s like you can put it down for a while, whatever it is that you’re carrying around with you, you can just leave it right there at the front door, recognized, acknowledged, and of no consequence, at least for a while.”

That’s just a tidbit from a blogger who will only consider running for President if it doesn’t interfere with her real ambition to be Queen of the Planet.

Borgy 101

Borgy 101 came up from this unlikely string of search words: dogwalkers of the world unite WordPress.   He’s an amusing guy and is good on issues as disparate as the Swedish Bikini team and great jobs you might (or might not) want to have. 

We had a bit of a glitch in our December blog a day schedule:  blame holiday parties.  Enough said. 

Midtown Lunch

Midtown Lunch is a great read. It doesn’t matter if you don’t work in Manhattan. It doesn’t even matter if you never go out to eat lunch. Midtown Lunch is fun anyway.

Midtown Lunch perfectly illustrates a great formula for Best Blogging:write about things you love and things that make you laugh, and your blog will be magic.

Knit Blogs

Knitters are a literate bunch. Two knit blogs we like: Knit-Write and A Bird’s Nest. They’re funny, and written with flair, two attributes that make a blog a Best Blog. Both are pretty new to WordPress, but we’re betting on a long run.

If you don’t know much about the huge phenomenon that is knitting and knit blogs, you’re not alone. Secret Mojo Dumbs it Down for You has a few things to say about it, from the perspective of a guy who doesn’t knit. Not yet anyway.

(Saturday Morning Blogroll found these two as she finds many things: through the “knitting” tag and from browsing around people’s blogrolls.)

Fergis Writes Letters

Fergis Writes Letters

Fergis does indeed write letters. His blog is full of them. Problem is, nobody ever answers them. Maybe that’s because they’re often addressed to those who don’t habitually answer letters: the Canadian twenty dollar bill, Count Chocula, his recycling bin.

What makes Fergis a Best Blog? Perseverance. No one’s answered his letters but he’s kept blogging away. Wit. A vision that’s all his own (who else would think to wrap a rant into a letter)?

(You might be asking yourself, how did Saturday Morning Blogroll find Fergis? We’ll tell you one thing: it wasn’t because he wrote us a letter. But maybe someday he will. We might even answer.)

blahblahblah (that’s three blahs)

lazy

I was looking through the blogs this evening and found this cool blog. It’s abour raising children, being married, taking a bio class and finding your super power.

If you read through her posts you’ll find that she’s really quite hilarious. But not only is it hilarious but it also makes sense. It’s my kind of humor. Check it out.
