Plugging those who are not me

When you're done checking out my 44 seconds of anonymous co-fame at The Onion News Network, take a look at my blogroll. There are all kinds of new people over there. Like Mama Cooks! And Just Another Ink-Stained Wretch, who is as she describes. I like her. And there's Catherine Newman, who I am proud to list among my new set of BFsF. And last but not least, there's Exurbitude, who has a thing for antlered sharks.

I plugged The Sound of Young America in a previous post, and shortly thereafter TSOYA made its debut on NPR. I know deep in my heart that I made that happen. (Also, the flowers are blooming because I have willed it so.) Now I feel compelled to plug another product of young Jesse Thorn's radio/podcasting empire, that being Jordan, Jesse, Go! Listening to Jordan and Jesse, one might almost forget that one is alone most of the day and doesn’t have any friends around one who makes one laugh like Jordan makes Jesse laugh. Sometimes one might share an anecdote from JJG! and forget that it happened to someone whom one does not know! And then one might feel pathetic indeed. Still, though, it's worth it. I highly recommend listening to this podcast, starting with the first episode, and then you can feel like you got in on the ground floor of something awesomer than anything you can remember.

Also? Tropicana Orange/Strawberry/Banana Juice mixed with seltzer is a drink that's tops in my book. Seriously, it's like drinking a fizzy liquid Starburst, but without all that bothersome high-fructose corn syrup. Do it! I mean, drink it! You know what I mean!

That blurring of the line between what you hear or read and then start to recount to someone else before you realize that (a) it didn't happen to you and (b) the person you are trying to explain it to has (c) no idea what you are talking about and (d) doesn't really care?

That's me. Every day, pretty much. Living the good life, inside my head. Yup, yup.

Isn't Catherine Newman the kind of person you want to hide away with in the corner of the cocktail party and snigger about adulthood? I love her. I luff her! I want to hug her.

My husband asked me to stop getting that orange strawberry banana juice because it makes him take extra craps.

I never once thought to try it myself.
