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!
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."
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.
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."
CBS has a sitcom with the same title. Go figure.
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.
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.
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.
Aetius Romulous presents Everyone’s a Winner, on Biggest Loser… « ScreamBucket posted at ScreamBucket.
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."
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."
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.
