Accumulation of debt [2]

I attempt housekeeping in the blogging department and ignore the dust bunnies. [translation = a delightful American term that refers to the gathering filth in your home]

There is a young woman I know of an "ephemeral" nature who has tagged me.

Fortunately for me, my interests in the blogging world reflect my escapist nature. This provides me with ample opportunity to knock tentatively on a few doors. Whilst I am in the habit of moaning about my own four children, I am very much aware that there are many people who long to have my complaints. Those people are without children, for any number of different reasons. Many of them are both my oldest and dearest friends. Few people understand their plight. Whilst there are many different options and paths available, we who have children, are apt to give them short shrift.

1. This is a slice from a country in which I spent a number of years in my childhood. Some may find it "exotic," but I find it a home from home.

2. Whilst he probably wouldn't describe himself as a minority, many might. If possession of an irreverent sense of humour and a "sharp wit" is a minority interest, then he is most definitely guilty. Such a shame that the name "Kevin" has so many unfortunate connotations, but I'm sure he's 'man' enough to bear it.

3. This is a relatively new spot for me, but I need to redress the age bias of these posts. "Antique Mommy," [when will these people learn usage of the letter 'u'?] She has a delightful outlook on life and also provides proof positive that babies can pop up when you least expect them.

4. If you want to escape, you, not me of course, then you can't go far wrong than by nipping over to a little "island" where life is good and eclectic. I like the variety here, that is free of sermons.

5. How could resist another "cartoon."

Again,
N.B. Although I was tagged in my "whitterer" mode, I have to post here to avoid confusion - I hope?

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think, not including the one who nominated you,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.
