Thinking Blogger

Crisp, delicious weather nonwithstanding, Summer is in full manic swing. How much can be done to conquer this corner of the world in the time slots scattered between teaching and traveling and teaching while traveling? Thinking slips lower on the ToDo List, though it's mutitaskable, so this morning for example, both "laundry" and "think" occupy the 10:30 -10:33 slot.

So I'm surprised and a little embarrassed to be tagged by Jackie Lantern as a "Thinking Blogger." The rules of the game follow thusly:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
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 (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).

But rather than post about all 5 at once, I think I'll spread the love (and give Jackie more links. Invest with the Gypsy for a Fivefold return! ;-) The game is on! ... And I'm late for laundry....


  1. Nice move! And it proves you are a thinker!! :)

  2. Awesome. Just another reason why your blog rocks :D

  3. Thanks guys! Though perhaps it just proves that if you present an excuse--I mean, an idea--with enough conviction, even procrastination sounds poetic! ;-)
