Two Cool New Blogs

Only eight more shopping days until Christmas, you Christmas-celebrating Wavers. The Wave-inatrix shared my Christmas wish list last week and no pressure, but it's really time consuming to ship a pony. So. Little hint there.

But seriously, being that I have my two front teeth and all, here are two blogs that I recently became aware of, that I think ROCK THE FREE WORLD. Do people say that anymore? I think that's a Cold War remnant. Oops. Age showing.
The first is Comic Mummy written by an extremely funny Aussie who is a girl after the Wave-inatrix's own heart.

And the other is Miss Understood or, A Sideways Look at Womanhood from which I have copied this fantastic poem. Wavers, read, rejoice, cut, paste, share - attribute - and visit the blog from which it came.

Puppet on a String
After a while you learn
the subtle difference
between holding a hand
and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't always mean security.
And you begin to learn
that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises,
and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead,
with the grace of a woman,
not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain...
for plans and futures
have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
that even sunshine burns
if you get too much,so you plant a garden
and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure
you really are strong
you really do have worth,
and you learn...and you learn.
With every goodbye you learn.

Wow, I am seriously chuffed. And moved. And everything in between. Bottom line: thank you from the bottom of my inflating head.

Yay! It seems we are officially cyber kindred spirits. :-)

Thanks for the link, and I'm glad you like the blog :)
The poem isn't actually mine, but I saw it and loved it, so stole it myself. I'm sure Veronica won't mind a bit!
