Here are a few things I’ve particularly enjoyed lately:
- Lee Rosenbaum, aka Culturegrrl, explains how she once saved a Cézanne at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
- Thirty years ago, Saoba found some kindness in line at the grocery store. (Link via Garrett Fitzgerald’s Blog.)
- Pachipro of Sushicam once left his Gaijin card at home, and the Japanese law enforcement establishment wasn’t amused. (In the Sushicam forums, someone else tells a similar story.)
- Robert Pollack, who teaches English somewhere in the Mississippi Delta as a part of the Mississippi Teacher Corps, writes . . . Up On Choctaw Ridge. There, he frequently discusses some of the regionalisms he hears. (You’ll see that I’ve commented on a couple. My Oklahoma dialect is, at least in a few ways, not that dissimilar.)
- The ChaliceBlog asks Unitarian Universalists how much they identify with each of those two words. (I commented there, too, by the way.)
- How about three pics from Shutterbug, one of my favorite photoblogs? “Gluten Free Trio,” “Krispy Kreme,” and “Lush.”
- The New York Times notices that the breeding of rodeo bulls has become big business. See the Oklahoma dateline?
