- Fizzy Thoughts: Weekly Geeks

Weekly Geeks

Sunday, November 23, 2008


This week, Dewey is sending us bloghopping!

1. Using the WeeklyGeeks category here in my blog, find 5 Weekly Geeks you don’t know. The easiest way is probably to look at the Mr Linkies in my weekly Saturday posts.
2. Visit each of your 5 new blogpals and snoop around their blogs to find at least one thing you have in common.
3. In your blog, write a post, linking to your 5 new blogpals, about what you have in common with them.
4. Come back and sign Mr Linky.
5. As you run across other Weekly Geek posts (or deliberately seek them out) if you see anyone mentioned who has something in common with you, pay them a visit.


My first stop was Sophisticated Dorkiness, where I discovered Kim's college football team (the Wisconsin Badgers) just beat my college football team (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Mustangs). Small world, no?

At 1more chapter, I read Michelle's latest review, on Downtown Owl, a book by Chuck Klosterman that I didn’t even know existed. However, I’m currently reading Klostermans’ Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs. Have you ever noticed that you can go along oblivious to a certain author, then suddenly you see their books everywhere (just last week I saw a guy in Starbucks reading Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs).

I’m cheating a bit by linking to Lou, but I have to mention her. I found her blog (or she found mine) two Weekly Geeks ago, so that’s close right? But get this…Lou lives in Denmark, but she has been to Morro Bay! And okay, I haven't visited Copenhagen, but a girl can dream. Anyways... I get a kick out the fact that I blog about local things and Lou knows what I'm talking about.

Bernadette (Reactions to Reading) lives in Australia. I once dated an Australian boy. Does that count? She also spends her days writing about bureaucratic nonsense. We could be twins!

Finally, I stopped at Melanie’s blog (The Indextrious Reader) and admired the lovely green theme…because green is my favorite color. Also, we share childhood favorites…Anne of Green Gables, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, and A Wrinkle in Time.

Well I've dated a few Australian boys too - so sure it counts :) Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for mentioning me, softdrink :-) I enjoy your blog very much and it adds to the fun that you are in Morro Bay which I visited en route south on Hgwh 1. If Copenhagen should ever be on your travel itinerary, I'd say visit from May to September. Not that it cannot be raining during those months, because it can, oh yes, but we do have nice summers which would be more suitable for a California gal than our yucky and cold winters, autumns and springs ;o) Okay, all seasons can be pretty and sunny here in Denmark (this morning the sun is shining and the skies are blue, but it is cold) but come late spring or during summer. I'll show you where you can buy English books ;o) Have a great day over there.

I knew a guy who went to SanLuisO... (I don't remember his name, tho.)

Melanie said...

Thanks for visiting -- could we count as something in common the fact that I WISH I were as funny and sarcastic as you are?

Wow, what a small world. Cal Poly played much, much better than the Badgers did for the whole game. Part of me was rooting for them to win because they played so well and we played so badly. Thanks for the link!

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
