EWR: Fourteen Times The Goodness






Welcome to the March 29, 2009 edition of Everything Worth Reading on March 28. Yes, I'm a day early; I'll be away from the computer tomorrow, so instead of making you wait longer, I'm posting early.

Save more than several submissions from someone named Farid who doesn't grasp the concept of "please submit once per carnival" nor the idea of "writing," I found almost too many good posts to choose from. Kudos, bloggers!


Thomas Peep presents Cuban or Rainman? posted at Thomas Peep's Daily News™.

Chris presents Starting a new life in Australia, part 1 posted at Home I Own, saying, "How I started a new life in a strange country carrying nothing but 2 suitcases."

I used to think I was going to live in Australian outback. So far, Outback Steak House is as far as I've gotten.

POST OF THE MONTH

Mauzzie presents mushroom sauce and (maybe) something more « Ponderer posted at Ponderer, saying, "Oh well. Hello all!"

I know, the title is intriguing as it is. When you open this link, you'll see the first three tags are "backache, Kitten, Japanese bento." For that reason alone, this is our POST OF THE MONTH!

Kaiton Berkley presents Worst product ever created posted at RockstarMama: the blog� Rockstar Mama the blog, saying, "$10 right down the toilet, and all I have to show for it is something that looks like rugburn."

Oh, how I empathize with the never-ending search for the perfect hair removal product.


Fred Omorogbe presents Bated Breath: A Poet’s Poetic Sojourn posted at Motivational People Soul Search Poetry With Money Making Reviews and Tips, saying, "A true-life poetic retrospective expression of the mind of a troubled poet... Letting it all out."


JennH presents The New Year’s Eve Party posted at Mixed Metaphor.net, saying, "A fictional short story about a woman who rings in the New Year in a manner she could not have foreseen."

If this story were true life and I were the woman, the "manner I could not have foreseen" would refer to something like a normal night in which I do not get plastered and pass out on a shag carpet in a skeevy basement. Maybe that's TMI.

J. Cullen presents It Must Be The Jewelry Store Ads posted at Life's dewlaps.

All about the ring. Not the one that kills people in Japanese lore.

Raising Whiskers presents Cats Toilet Training - Litter Box - Toilet Training posted at Cat Care Tips, saying, "Yes, you can train your cat to use the toilet."

While this carnival is not about how-to posts, I couldn't not include this one. I mean, a cat! on a toilet!

Burak Bilgin presents A Hint for Men in Modern Times posted at Distiller's Corner, saying, "Women have freedom of choice, and men don’t have any other option but to respect this freedom, and to do their best to be the chosen one. And the problem starts right here."

Jacob Duchaine presents The Big Bang Theory posted at The Blog of Jacob Duchaine.

CBS has a sitcom with the same title. Go figure.

John Duke presents Happy 9th Anniversary posted at OrangeHornet>.

William Cotter presents Jump Out the Back, Jack posted at Paw Paw Bill.

Get a new plan, Stan. You can just leave, Steve. Turn turn the knob, Bob. Try not to lick, Rick. I could go on all day with these.

steven germain presents One Page At A Time... posted at Rough Fractals, saying, "The act of writing, independent of the content, is a positive thing..."

Greg Laden presents Greg Laden's Blog : The Lion, The Tent, and the Anthropologist posted at Greg Laden's Blog.

This post title sounds like the beginning of a really great joke.

Shiv Dravid presents Bruce Springsteen – Working On a Dream posted at The Viewspaper » The Viewspaper, saying, "here are some thoughts about Bruce Springsteen's Working On a Dream."

Wayne Cross presents My First Scuba Diving Vacation posted at First Scuba Diving Vacation, saying, "Everybody who dives has to have a first diving experience. Mine was about twenty years ago of the Big Island of Hawaii with a group of my friends. None of us were certified. How could we be, since it was our first time? If we had been certified, at least we could have said we had previously dived to the bottom of some community pool back on the mainland."

I'm scared of drowning in my shower so I admire anyone who scubas.

Walter J. Shumate presents Humor - Things That Go SNRRRK In The Night posted at WalterShumate.net, saying, "My wife says I snore. She must be lying, I've never heard it."

Vanessa Wolf presents Forget the killer chimp: THIS is news! posted at Wide Awake in Wonderland.

Aetius Romulous presents Everyone’s a Winner, on Biggest Loser… « ScreamBucket posted at ScreamBucket.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Multi-Task Madness posted at Mad Kane's Humor Blog.

Erika presents Skiing in Spain: the Catalonia Pyrenees posted at Visiting Spanish Speaking Countries, saying, "You have probably heard all about the beaches of Spain; the truth is that Spain is not only all about summertime travel. The country offers a winter wonderland made possible by the Spanish Pyrenees Mountains."

Shawn Bryan presents 4 Stores That Should Be Out of Business posted at The Shark Tank, saying, "The economy is tough out there, but like cockroaches, these stores manage to survive."

SHARK! You'll see what I mean.

GrrlScientist presents Finnish Emergency Medicine: One American's Experience posted at Living the Scientific Life, saying, "Probably the thing that scares international travelers most is suddenly becoming ill or requiring emergency surgery while overseas. This story describes one American's experiences in the medical system in Helsinki Finland after falling on the ice and seriously fracturing my right wrist and undergoing surgery."

Roma Hudson presents Indian Kokopelli posted at American Indian Culture.

I used to wish I were part Native American. Then I dated a guy who said he was, got a tattoo to honor it, and then found out he wasn't.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of
Everything Worth Reading using our carnival submission form.

Christina:

The main character in my story began and ended the evening in an upper West (or East . . . use your imagination) Side apartment where the doorman haled a cab for her and her husband.

"Eventually, the social worker relented and summoned a police officer and chaplain to drive her back to their building and escort her into their apartment."

Accordingly, she did not "pass out on a shag carpet in a skeevy basement." I have never even heard the word "skeevy" and don't know what it means.

It is a story about love . . . and loss.

Hey, thanks for including me (and thus lowering the bar for future submissions). It was a brave choice.
