I’m being a good little co-blogger today, and posting a timely which-what-who for the week. Followers of our book blog Reading Upside Down will have already seen this format pop up last week. Basically this will be a weekly summary of the things that have caught our attention on the wonderful and wacky world wide web. The title is of course Seussian, as we have an undying affection for the good Dr. Can you pick which book it’s from?
Some fun stuff catching my eye last week included:
11 Points.com – 11 Yearbook Photos that Musicians Wish We’d Never Seen. Nice to know I’m not the only person who spent the 80s with Regrettable Hair.
Becky over at Mommy Wants Vodka admitted to some song lyric confusion, that brought out even more confessions of musical malapropism in the comments. If, like me, you find these hilarious, there is an archive of misheard lyrics at kissthisguy.com
Come Play with us at Australia’s Bid for the FIFA World Cup. I’m mad about the Beautiful Game. My dear grandfather who passed away last year was a driving force in starting a soccer/football competition here in Newcastle in the 1960s, he toured Germany with the Socceroos in 1974, and I’m so glad he got to see them get to the Cup again in 2006. I plan on flogging this at every opportunity, until we get the Cup Down Under. Come and help! Come play!
And of course last week the blogosphere (not sure how I feel about that word, by the way) was awash in posts about the death of Michael Jackson, which brought out all manner of reactions from commentators everywhere. There was a big blow-up in the comments over at Mia Freedman‘s blog mamamia, but rather than directing you there, check out the comments on this later post, where Mia does a blog version of a dinner game that we also like to play regularly here Chez Mif. Reading through everyday people’s best and worst experiences of the week is a wonderful reminder of the seemingly small things, both good and bad, that enrich our lives.
