A shoutout and a recommendationPosted: July 17, 2013
for one of the best in the blogosphere: Girl On The Contrary. I’ve cited her here and here and here. Whenever I get an email announcing that she’s posted a new entry, it automatically cheers me up and makes my morning.
A while back I admitted to being one of her (many) fawning fanboys. I wrote:
If this were a just world GOTC and I would sit together at the table each morning and she would read her blog to me over a breakfast of Grand Marnier French toast, Scottish smoked salmon, figs and cream with hazelnut syrup, freshly pressed Kopi Luwak coffee… and a bowl of Cap’n Crunch. Part of this complete breakfast. I’d smile beatifically at her and chuckle ardently over the parts I’d hear above the Crunch of the Cap’n. Such would be my devotion. But this isn’t a just world. Yet.
GOTC never fails to brighten my day. And I’ve had the pleasure of corresponding with her via email regarding blogging issues. She is as gracious and helpful as she is funny and thoughtful. And she loves Shel Silverstein and Kurt Vonnegut. Doesn’t get any better than that.
I make a lot of recommendations on this blog, Desert Island Discs and food items and whatnot. Some silly, some not. If you ever follow up on one of my recommendations, if you’re looking for a great blog to follow, this is the one. I hope GOTC doesn’t get embarrassed by how effusive I’m being about her blog. Well, a little embarrassed would be okay.
And don’t forget: tomorrow is Jazz Hands Thursday.
