5 BLOGS YOU HAVE TO CHECK OUT #1

http://briteyellowgun.wordpress.com/
I received another one of those You Make My Day Awards, which I love...that's 2 now...and part of the deal is you pick 5 blogs that make your day and link them so other peoples(you guys) can check them out...I did that before...but now I really want you to pay close attention and really go check these folks out...I know, I know you already have to many blogs to read as it is, and you don't want to bother with any more...Well, trust me on this...these 5 will be more than worth it..Hey, I didn't steer you wrong about The Name of The Wind did I ?.....
So the first one is one (going to do them one blog per post, so I can really tell you all about them.)that I have been reading since I was at the old place..before we all got kicked off for various offenses...Mine was for saying fuck every 3rd word...my final post over there was "adios mother fuckers"...anyhow....It was me, Babs, Sooner(who no longer blogs and for you who never got to read him, you missed a very sick and twisted person writing sick and twisted posts..which is why he was my favorite, still remains my good friend and is coming down for Westfest and will be his second visit to West..Babs, Sooner and I plan on ripping West a new one..the big three....run, run for your lives..)Nitwit, Ruby, Nancy, Tex, Kevin, Rocky, and some others who all came over here about the same time..Every one knows that I'm mad crazy about Nitwit and Ruby...Tex is my lil' buddy and Rocky and Nancy have been here and gone several times...But ole Kevin...I love ole Kevin...what to say about Kevin to get you to go visit him...he's very smart, very funny and tells the greatest stories ever..He and his partner R. have 4 adopted children, who were abused in ways that should never happen to a child..They have given them the best that they can offer, and that's a wonderful life..They are absolutely the greatest parents..Brad and Angela Jolie should be these kind of parents..I'd rather be adopted by Kevin than the Jolie-Pitt's...He lives in Cleveland, Ohio..they moved about a year ago from North Carolina and Kevin calls it Paris of the mid-west...He's got a wicked funny sense of humor and when he gets pissy because no one is commenting, he is hysterical..calls us fucking retards and threatens to kill us all...I love it when he gets pissy...At one point he was going to quit blogging as he thought he wasn't contributing anything worthwhile..I sent him an email and told him that my granddaughters were a little iffy about the whole gays getting married thing and then I told them about Kevin and R. and what they had done for those kids, the life they were giving them, the love they had not just for the kids but for each other (been together 18 years)and had them read some of his posts...He completely changed their entire outlook on gay marriages...and now are pissed because they can't get insurance or get a break on their taxes because they are gay..They are pro gay marriage now..and it's because of Kevin...so go check out my friend...I think once you go there, you'll have plenty of reason to stay.
Some how I linked it at the top of the post and can't figure out how to move it down here...oh well, we all know how adept I am at thingies...

Was the old place WP? I have been hesitant about moving over there, even though I like that you can sort of create a website. That "report" button scares me.

Big Pissy said...

went and checked out your friend.

He's funny! :)

Big Tex said...

Just checked out your friend's blog a few minutes ago - pretty funny. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

As far as my 5 blogs, aside from your blog, and mine (heh), the 3 that I check out most often are all political: Daily Kos, Eschaton, and Talking Points Memo. I check out a few others too, but those are the main 3.

The old place...ugh. I don't miss it. The blog I have now is on Typepad - I have to pay a little every month, but it's so much easier to use, and better looking also. And I'm able to put ads on my blog (which I did - I've made a grand total of 7 cents so far! Woohoo!). I flaked out on the old blog before all of y'all apparently left, but that sucks if they were kicking you off for stuff like cussing. No, excuse me, that fucking sucks. I'll have to peruse your blogroll to see if I recognize any names from the old days...

Kalibitch said...

McRaven said...

Rocky & Nancy are both Virgos, I wonder if that is the common denominator. :) Love you!

What do I say to a post like this?! I'm humbled...but certainly not speechless! First of all, thank you. You are way too kind to me...as that old ABBA song went, "I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a whore. If I suck a dick, it's probably been sucked before." Anyhowsen-hoosen, I'm sitting at work at 5 a.m. this morning illegaly checking my email and wondering, "why the hell are all of these new people commenting here?" but then I saw the JS name come up and I knew you were up to something over here!

Jackie, you truly are the reason I still bother. Seriously. I was so done with blogging and then you sent me that email and it completely turned me around. I guess I just want to feel like I made some kind of a difference and you made me think that maybe I did...and if I did what you said, then maybe I should continue to have my "voice" heard. At this point however, your granddaughters would be getting the equivalent of a zoo-view of a retard behind glass. Not sure that's what they bargained for. But in the meantime...thank you thank you thank you. Oh gawd, the "Old Place"...those were crazy days...my life was so different then and oh, the FUN we had on Fridays at Sooner's Bar & Grille! I've never laughed so hard in the blogworld since!

Love you!!!

yellowdog granny said...

Well, in a turn-about-is-fair-link fashion, I've found your blog through Kevin. I've seen your comments around the blogosphere but hadn't checeked on you before. I'm glad Kevin directed me here. Anybody who befriends and defends my buddy Kevin is a worthy friend.
