To all my friends in my blogroll

This post is bout the people ive put on my blogroll...but before i get there...a little background story...

A 50% weightage of my Media: Australia & Global goes towards a silly 2500 word essay that ive to cough up by June...10% of which is a sillier 'essay proposal' that ive to magically conjur up before 21st March to give my tutor a better understandin of what im about to attempt to do...

As luck would have it...we're given 9 topics to choose from...the lazy bastard in me decided to knock back some beers and take the easy route...ive decided to write bout weblogs...or more conveniently known as blogs...i mean...what better topic to write about than bloggin...it's an activity that started off as a slight interest
17 months ago that...somehow...along the way...graduated to a little obsession that i took to...

Anyway...like i usually do...i digress...

Havin spent so many weeks away from my blog...ive gradually grown to miss it...sometimes even think bout it like a little child...ive nurtured and maintained it...taught it good things...fed it with a plethora of healthy journalism and bad language...and sometimes even lamented to it...my joys...trials...and soulfood...ive cried to it...talked to it...and even reflected on it...it's like my 2nd micheLe...

Ok im freakin myself out now...hehe...

Ive been spendin lots of time on the people on my blogroll...my 'friends'...or people ive gotten to know over the year just through their blogs...as im not physically able to blog as often (as all of you would know)...i thought i should check on the people ive communicated with before i left for Melbourne...not all of them know of my existence...some of them are just blogs ive been followin since day 1...whereas others are people ive grown attached to either through genuine friendship or a shared interest...i reckon this would be a rather interestin way to sell their site (do i get some brownie points for that?)...so time permittin...id post an update on 'my friends' should i see fit...

I'll start from the top of my blogroll:

Norlinda
A huge movie and tv afficionado...i stubled upon Norlinda's site way back in March. She lives in New York and has roots in Singapore.

This week...Norlinda describes her experiences and thoughts on after watchin The Contender and Minority Report...she griefs over her tone deaf ears and reflects on humanity...

I still havnt figured out her name...but this lady is amazin...like the title of her blog...she writes just bout every topic worth discussin...the level of detail and thoughts she put into her entries are delightful treats...what's even funnier...and i just discovered this...she's in Melbourne too...

This week Omniverse blogs bout exhaustion...Karma...talkin with food in one's mouth and opinions...

JaG
That's an acronym for Just A Girl...i dont know her name either...but we've chatted on many occassions on Messenger and left funny comments on each other's blog...she lives in Holland with her boyfriend and talks bout everythin...her best (and funniest) posts are almost always bout sex...

This week JaG blogs bout being horny...the imminent arrival of Spring...her boyfriend's ass...havin an affair with the video store guy...makin out in public...and wow...im gettin turned on lol...

An American livin in Canada...i wonder if she's happy with the cheaper health care *chuckles*...writes cutesy and interestin stuff on American TV...entertainment news and things happenin around her...

This week Alicia blogs bout porn-flavored soup...the ultrasound of her 3rd baby...the 8 hours egg-eatin attempt...reality TV tid-bits...and her 4-year-old daughter's brush with the Dark Side...no really...

Gavin
Gavin and i share 2 passions...Sri Lankan girls and Leeds United AFC...you see...we're datin 2 sisters...micheLe being mine...XXXXXXX (for security reasons her name would not be published) being his...his blog is more a photographic journal and archive than a text site...check out his blog for creative inspiration...

E
E and i go back a long way...13 years to be precise...she's engaged to a Canadian and...like me...aspires to leave Singapore for good...

This week hasnt been all too good to E...i dont wana talk too much bout it...a friend deserves a little respect and solace sometimes...

Bee
Bee and i both hail from the cut-throat world of Advertisin...thing is...she's still at it...whereas ive given that up for life here in Melbourne...Bee muses bout borin old Singapore...passes caustic jibes at fools in her Advertisin firm...and most times just envys my life here...

This week Bee bitches bout an Asian work week...bitches bout work...rememberin her youth with fondness *insert sarcasm here*...and shoppin...boy...she's a woman alright...

Eddy
Eddy describes himself as a sore loser in a dead end job and has no sexual experience. Thing is...i agree with him coz he looks and talks the part. But what Eddy doesnt have...God has given him wit and humor in spades...probably one of the funniest Singapore blogs around...i absolutely love readin his posts...

This week Eddy talks bout his blood pressure...spendin unnecassary money on an expensive haircut...learnin to let go and his bitchy boss...

This week Mr Brown drops some lass ass Michael Jackson jokes...and describes some funny moments of his trip to Thailand...

Blog Critic
Hands down the funniest man/woman everyone loves to hate. Stingin barbs and bloody rude insults on people's blogs is one thing...but 40-60 comments on every single one of his posts? That's fuckin crazy...

Blog Critic blogs as and when he feels...prior to his latest post there was a 3 months hiatus...go figure...

blog wars that left a bitter aftertaste in my mouth...another casual Singapore blogger...she amuses me with her everyday outlook at life...always rude...never borin...

This week FF blogs bout the hardness of Singapore...fat free food...dietin...cab drivers and the dangers of credit cards...

Scott
Scott's a gay man in Memphis, Tennessee...a gay in repressive South. Nuff said.

For some reason Scott hasnt updated his site for 3 weeks. I hope ya well Scott...

Oceanchum
What is it bout rude Americans that crack me up? I honestly dont know why...

Another one who hasnt updated his blog...damnit!

Terri
A 51-year-old lady who writes bout her life...it's heart-warmin...it's grippin...it's real...being old does have her merits...

This week Terri blogs bout her extended hiatus from bloggin...

Darren
Darren runs one of the most professionally run blogs ive ever seen...residin in Vancouver, Canada he works as an IT specialist and moonlights as a blogger extraordinaire...Darren's got some of the most interestin bits of everythin...im sometimes quite amazed at the rate he churns out legit stuff that's worth readin...

I stumbled upon Bob's site from a direct link to my site...turns out this bloke's quite a political activist...and a funny one at that...read his site for his thoughts on Americans...Bush...the Iraq War...you know...issues that are close to the White House's heart...

This week Bob blogs bout Jews and how special they think they are and his guidelines on comments left on his posts...lol...take a chill pill Bob...it cant be as bad as the sexist and racist defematory cries i received from obnoxious prudes involved in the Blog wars...

April
Around the time i flew off to Melbourne...i started gettin lotsa hits from a mystery lady...April's site started to appear as a direct link a fair bit...somehow she's used Bee as a vessel to pay me homage...and i cant say ive been disappointed...you see...anyone who paints a pretty picture of adrock2xander has a guaranteed parkin space in my blog...if only i had a penny for every salute ive gotten from her...id have been rich!

This week April blogs bout Joe Cartoon (ehm...wtf is Joe Cartoon?)...her thoughts on Aussies and racists experiences in Melbourne (after readin my tram inspector post)...and the soundtrack to the Will Smith vehicle Hitch...
