EWR: Eleventh Heaven

Welcome to the December 28, 2008 edition of everything worth reading. A few days late.

Justin Brunjes presents 'Stuck at the top of the world' or 'A nightmare of buses, trains and footpaths in St. Moritz' posted at The Best Things In Life, saying, "Hope you like this true story."

Pandora presents A Dylan Song I Never Heard posted at Pandora Parker, saying, "I would love some critiques and overall opinions on my style and story content. Thanks in advance to anyone daring enough to visit."

becauseemilysaysso presents My Second X Chromosome is Broken posted at Because Emily Says So.

I wouldn't want to hold the baby either, Em. Power to the non-maternal! That makes this your and our Post Of The Month!

Monica Hamburg presents Monica Hamburg - Your Dose of Lunacy: Skymall - You're Clueless & We Get That posted at Monica Hamburg - Your Dose of Lunacy.

Scary things you can buy for too much money. Love it.

Relax presents Something must go in before we can pull something out posted at The Wise Curve.

One of the main reasons I'm including this link is because it sounds so dirty and so is not.

Justin Duval presents www.DarkGrin.com - Cops SAGA posted at The Dark Grin, saying, "A real-life story of a run in with the COPS how could it not be funny or good?!"

A philosophy I live by.

TherapyDoc presents The Bus posted at Everyone Needs Therapy.

Get on the bus.

Martin E. Zulliger presents From Illegal Immigrant to IT Entrepreneur - The beginning posted at Chronicles of a Hacker, saying, "I am trying to tell my story here, I hope you find it interesting!"

With a title like that, it's gotta be worth a peek.

Toni presents I am thankful for sweet foggy messages posted at Wifely Steps, saying, "A little poem for my sweet husband."

makingthishome presents Making This Home » Blog Archive » A Peek Inside a Prague Home posted at Making This Home, saying, "Thank you for hosting this everything carnival! I'm sharing a bit of Prague."

I've always wanted to go to Prague. So far, this is the closest I've been.

Raghu presents The day the internet slept posted at Inside Life, saying, "Some groundbreaking insight, mind-blowing wit, and a fair share of light-hearted humor on the quirks of men and their creations."

"The Quirks of Men." That should be my next book.

Sidhusaaheb presents Prima Facie: A Few Observations on the Mumbai Attacks posted at I, Me, Myself.

Considering the gravity of this post, my pointing out how much fun it is to say Mumbai would be utterly inappropriate. Instead, I will show the skills I learned while teaching Ethics: Prima facie = first face = at face value or at first glance. I teach good.

GrrlScientist presents Alex And Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Uncovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence -- and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process posted at Living the Scientific Life, saying, "a review of the memoir by Irene Pepperberg. This book tells the fascinating story of the author's 30 year relationship with the famous African grey parrot, Alex. This powerful and educational memoir will forever change the way you view animals, particularly birds, and how they think."

Plus, they can talk. Right? The parrots, I mean.

Allen Scott presents What Time is It? posted at A View from the Nest, saying, "As the year quickly comes to a close perhaps it is time to ask the age old question-What time is it really?"

Flava Flav has been doing that for decades.

Sarah Zielinski presents The Tragic Tale of the Pygmy in the Zoo posted at Surprising Science.

Why are Pygmys always the center of some tragedy? Or is it Pygmies? See what I mean?

Terry Dip presents Moon Agent: Part 1 of 99(?) posted at Complete and Creative, saying, "This is the beginning of a complete novel."

Novel on a blog! Novel on a blog!

Martial Development presents Why i fail interviews posted at The Lumber Room.

Now here's a great tale about the job market.

Investing School presents 25 Ingenious Ways to Spend Your Time in the Current Financial Crisis posted at Investing School, saying, "A fun piece during these trouble times!"

The first suggestion is "buy a mattress." Any list of advice that starts out that way is worth reading.

Greg Laden presents Greg Laden's Blog : The Zodiac posted at Greg Laden's Blog.

Deep in the African Congo....

Tiffany presents Yasmin, Kennedy, and Lolita: How Bratz and My Scene inspired the next part of The Doll Project posted at brooding beauty, saying, "I'm an artist blogging about my process and wrote this piece about a new series I am working on called The Doll Project."

The more I read this post, the more freaked out I got. Girl dolls are scary. I think I heard that the Bratz dolls are being discontinued. Hallelujah.

Gil Ortiz presents Matachines posted at gilocafe.

Lupe! Virgins! Dancing! Aztecs know how to party. I love a good jig with someone of ancient ancestry.

That concludes this edition. Happy New Year! Happy Blogging!

Oh wow. So many beautiful thoughts. Thank you for including my tour of life in Prague.

My mother-in-law hosted a Czech Christmas (she's from Prague). I just wrote about it if you're interested. It was certainly interesting! Anyway, thank you for sharing so many thoughts. I have filled my browser with tabs!
