EWR: Eight Is Great

Welcome to the September 28, 2008 edition of everything worth reading. India's back, cool as ever. We've also got murder and peeing. I know, the variety is amazing. Enjoy!

Jim Murdoch presents Major Benjy by Guy Fraser-Sampson posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, "A novel set in the world of Mapp and Lucia the characters created in the 1930s by E. F. Benson and made popular on television in the 1980s. Very similar in tone to Jeeves and Wooster."

Remember Private Benjamin? Yeah. That was good. presents Trip to Wayanad: Day 2: Part 2: Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary or Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary posted at

Inspiring jealousy among us.

Louise Manning presents What do you find wonderful? posted at The Human Imprint.

This is touching in a non-sappy way.

Alex Smith presents Your Brain Is Your Best Self Defense Weapon posted at TBO-TECH.

The Power of Positive Thinking versus Taser Gun. Go!

Toni presents Remembering posted at Wifely Steps.

Another touching non-sappy tale. I'm diggin' it.

Kerry Dexter presents season of change: music for autumn 2008 posted at Music Road.

Who rocks the house? Kerry rocks the house, and when Kerry rocks the house, she rocks it all the way down! Ah, you can thank my cheerleading days for that ditty. Or is it diddy? Ooh, P. Diddy. Now we're way off base. Back to Kerry Dexter. She rocks.

Metaliphe presents Freud's Repetition Compulsion posted at Chandra Unplugged - No nonsense, Straight-up blogging from a Life Coach, saying, "It's what Freud calls repetition compulsion. We pick a person from the get go who reminds us of someone in our family of origin with the assumption being that if only I can get that person to love me then finally I will be lovable."

I guess I'm including this post because my boyfriend broke up with me last night. Yup, I'm back on the market. Now accepting applications.

Sara Goldstein presents Fashion don'ts: 'Mom jeans' poem posted at The Bargain Queens, saying, "Frustrated writer pens poem about 'Mom jeans' for fashion blog. People laugh -- but with or at her?"

It needs to be said. Thank you, Sara, for saying it.

TheLittlestGuy presents who peed in the water? posted at TheLittlestGuy.

Here's an interesting take on conservationism. Eat your heart out, Al Gore.

P.L. Frederick presents You're On My Mind, For $1,000 posted at Small and Big, saying, "One day, a dame with a dome has a bright idea."

Tyra Banks, you eat your heart out, too. You know what? I just creeped myself out. What the hell does that mean, anyway? Why would you tell someone to eat his or her own heart out of his or her own body?

amanda s presents Reasons Why Sarah Palin is NOT a Pit Bull posted at Save A Bull.

I'm not quite sure, but I think Amanda is not calling a woman a dog. I think.

Cinderberry presents The Stationery Fetishist’s Manifesto posted at Stationery Fetish.

Ahh, the fetishists. They are my people! This one in particular is all kinds of brilliant. You know what that means. Cinderberry, you have our POST OF THE MONTH!

Patricia Twitchell presents The Adventures of Penny Pincher - Penny Pincher Saves the Day posted at Just Bears and Stuff, saying, "The Adventures of Penny Pincher. Join Penny Pincher teddy bear as he helps save the rightful ownership of the mighty oak tree."

Oak trees are people too.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Sarah Who??? posted at Mad Kane's Political Madness.

Gettin' political.

David Settino Scott presents Free the Gods - Fiction posted at Free the Gods, saying, "A story about growing up in Santa Fe..."

Jon Bon Jovi has a song called Sante Fe on his soundtrack for Young Guns II. That, of course, has nothing to do with David's post. I've always wanted to go to Santa Fe, even before David's post and before the song. This is as close as I've gotten.

ElleAtDefiningSomeday presents Wild Card Inside posted at Defining Someday, saying, "Are you wild? Inside or out?"

Clothes on. Clothes off. It's a wild time.

Hairy Swede presents A Swedish American in Sweden: A Strange Morning with Swedish Boobs in Stockholm, Sweden posted at A Swedish American in Sweden, saying, "The one post I keep coming back to."

I think I have to come back a few times, too, with a title like that.

Kristen McCarthy presents Menstrual Suppression is the New White posted at, saying, "This season menstrual suppression is the new white. Designer oral contraceptives like Seasonale are the latest in cute pink pills to target the Western woman. No more mood swings, cramps, or unexpected whoopsies during your weekend getaways."

You know what's a bad idea, though? WEARING white when menstruating.

Nicholas Powiull presents Conscious Flex: Polyphasic Sleep by Nicholas Powiull posted at Conscious Flex, saying, "Polyphasic Sleep, ever heard of it? I did it for 273 days straight."

I don't see how this is enjoyable at all.

Glowing Face Man presents Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: A Man of Courage, Passion, and Freedom posted at Glowing Face Man: Awaken the Badass Within, saying, "What can we learn from Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the recently departed Nobel Laureate who endured a hellish tenure in the Soviet Gulags?"

I'm not sure what we can learn, but I am sure that this is too serious for me to be snarky. Good info, though.

Mike Solara presents Sleep Better, Live Longer posted at Mike Solara.

I'm pretty sure this totally negates everything Nicholas said about napping. Blog war! Blog war!
