Drats: memed again

The cutey patootey who bats for the wrong team (as far as all the women I know would think) has once again hit me with a meme. God love the poor delusional man who qualified my blog as as a thinking blog. ROTFLMAO. Ok, I've composed myself and now I have to tag five blogs that I qualify as "thinking" blogs.

I would normally pick North Dallas Thirty for this, but since he tagged me, he is off the list. LabKat was tagged by NDT, too.

So, here is my list with some explanation:

Mazurland Blog - I found this set of brothers when we were both finalists for the Weblog Awards a few years ago. These guys are witty, bright and insightful. You can find something from goofiness to downright brilliance there.

It comes in pints - It was the title of this blog that led me to Ken, Emily and the gang. I don't think I could dislike a blog that is named after one of Pippin's quotes from LOTR. Posts range from the eff off Friday thread to musical quizzes to informative insights into just about every topic available.

ArmyWife ToddlerMom - I'm not sure how I found this wonderful blog, but it is at the top of my blog reads. AWTM is clever and the all-American mom. She stays at home with Pink Ninja and Sir Rowland and is the proud wife of a soldier. She makes light of the mundane tasks of mom and has all of us SAHMs nodding in agreement, then she turns on her support for the military and their families and amazes us at the lengths she goes to in support of these wonderful families. Remarkable woman and worth a read.

Caption This - A different kind of thinking. I was introduced to V the K by the lovely Mo K and I've been a faithful reader and sometime contributor of photos to Caption This ever since. It is a different kind of thinking, but one that will sometimes make your stomach hurt from laughing so hard. It is worthwhile.

The Other Side of Kim - Kim. What can I say about Kim? Army of Dad introduced me to Kim - both literally and figuratively - and I've been a fan of this wonderful South African turned American citizen ever since. He is a staunch advocate of the second amendment and has some incredible insights on politics. His gun posts are typically over my head, but he makes AoD salivate over his firearm collection. My first and only gun to own was purchased from Kim. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in gun rights to give him a visit. Even if you are a gun control advocate, go give him a read and start a debate with him and see if he can sway you to come around. He is very persuasive.

Honorable mentions:
Mental Floss - I've known Gadfly for, gosh, going on 14 years or so. He made it to the hospital to visit two of my three children when they were newborns. (You didn't make it for Stinkerbelle, did you? Or was I too drugged up to notice?) He is so smart that it is almost on the verge of scary. His opinions vary so wildly that you never know what will come out of his mouth or his blog. The porn stuff sort of scares me sometimes. Sort of. :)

Cox and Forkum Editorial Cartoons are guaranteed to make you think.

Jenelle's Journey is done by the beautiful and full of life Kelly of Missing JT Snow. I found Kelly at Random and Odd and loved the name of her blog. I was a fan of the former Angel, JT Snow, too. So, I now lurk around her blog quite often. I feel a kinship with her because of her daughter, Jenelle, who is almost exactly the same age as Stinkerbelle (within a few days!) only her daughter suffers from a severe form of epilepsy. Having a special needs child (Pickle), too, I can empathize with all she has to endure to get the best for her daughter. God blessed me with many fewer challenges than she deals with on a daily basis. But, she gets up each day with a smile on her face, counting her blessings. I like to follow Kelly and Jenelle to see how they're doing. I encourage everyone to read the journeys of both of these beautiful girls.

Thanks, NDT, for making me think today. To those I named, I leave it up to you, if you want to select five thinking blogs, go for it. Otherwise, just keep on thinking and inspiring me.

    Thank you so much for your sweet and kind words. Getting to know you through your blog makes me know we'd be very good friends. I hope we can meet someday!

    Thinking?

    We've spent the last week *drinking* at our annual Mazur Family Campout.

    Thanks for the compliment....

    We'll post this week as we clear the cobwebs.

    Cap This! definitely requires some thinking. I rarely comment, unless there's something that leaps out at me. Usually, someone else has already thought of it, but dang... a couple of those guys are incredibly prolific!
    I sent a photo to him yesterday that really speaks for itself, but I'll be curious if he posts it and the kinda captions folks come up with. I'll email it to you. You'll LYAO!

    Yup, she's a thinking blog all right. :)

    "Bats for the wrong team," indeed -- think of me as the prime example of God's finger on the population-control button.
