About this time last year, Only Grrrl's Only Mom was a guest blogger on a now defunct blog.
Only Mom was very witty in her blog. She used phrases like "butt-tickling hair." She discussed the difficulty of writing a piano concerto that doesn't require thumbs. She talked about her dog who barks at Jesus everyday.
Finally she sent this invective-filled rant into the blogosphere. She was pissed at "us" all for never commenting on her contributions to the postmodern virtual literosphere. I wish I had saved it, because that little woman let "us" have it in a way that would have done any sailor proud.
So, I'm channeling the Only Mom for a moment to (gently, in an Only Grrrl way) gripe and complain about the lack of enthusiasm for what's supposed to be our collective, community-building conversation.
I mean, if you're not going to comment on Fire Ant Friday, what ARE you going to comment on? And isn't "Tree Speech" at least a cute play on words, and ever so appropriate for a blog called "Banned Books?"
Community takes ... I don't know... communing? communicating? telecommuting?
That's what this blog is all about... in addition to supporting our new favorite cafe (and Mexican import-a-rama), we're building community here. And you don't even have to be a card carrying member of the ACLU!!
Emily Post would be ashamed of "us."
So: How about some feedback for Winston and Pineapple and Enrique, and the other hard working bloggers out there?!?!
I think I'll go annoy somebody else now...
