I've made a few changes to the "Femmes" portion of my sidebar. The new additions, Fetch Me My Axe, Thinking Girl, Mad Melancholic Feminista, and The Shouty Woman, are worthy additions to any feminist blogroll. Check 'em out.

I didn't get tagged for this, but I thought it sounded interesting.

Four Jobs You've Had In Your Life

1. Clueless bratsitter. Me, not the kid.
2. Telemarketer. Gag me with the phone line.
3. Burger flipper. And sneezer into the salad bar for good measure.
4. Kmart flunkie. Left before they went bankrupt, fortunately.

Four Movies You Could Watch Over and Over

1. Terminator 2: Judgment Day. All hail the Governator and Big Bad Mama Linda Hamilton.
2. Waterworld. I like Kevin Costner; so sue me.
3. Seabiscuit. The first movie I've seen for grownups in quite a while.
4. They Live. Sci-fi satire and Rowdy Roddy Piper; what's not to love?

Four Places You've Lived

Gotta skip this one; I'm still living in the town where I was born and raised. Bah.

Four TV Shows You Love To Watch

1. Battlestar Galactica. The. Best. Freakin'. Show. On. Television.
2. Angel. Superior to Buffy, I think, especially seasons 3-5.
3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Spike is the best anti-hero I've ever seen.
4. Survivor. The equivalent of a psychology course every season.

Four Places You've Been On Vacation

1. San Diego. Spent two days crawling around Sea World.
2. Tucson. Ah, Kartchner Caverns; the beauty of caves.
3. New York. Got to see the World Trade Center while it was still there.
4. Fallon, NV. Went to visit relatives and reassure myself of where I didn't want to live.

Four Blogs You Visit Daily:

1. A View From a Broad. Gin tells idiot guys how it is, and eats trolls for breakfast.
2. The Y Files.Cathy Young may not be a classical feminist, but on some things she makes a lot of sense.
3. Paperback Writer. Sheila Kelly (aka S.L. Viehl and Lynn Viehl) is one of my favorite writers, and dispenses invaluable writing advice along with a can-do attitude.
4. Byzantium's Shores. Jaquandor can even make blogging about football (ARGHH!!) interesting.

Four of Your Favorite Foods

1. Shrimp. Especially sauteed with butter and herbs--yum.
2. Beans. Good for the waistline and bowels, along with providing interesting personal scents.
3. Chocolate. Not good for the waistline and bowels, but I don't give a hang.
4. Tea. Not strictly a food, maybe, but 'tis a delight to the palate.

Four Places You'd Rather Be

1. One of my early-morning walking routes. My favorite time to contemplate and brainstorm.
2. Hawaii. I will get there one of these days.
3. New Zealand. Ditto, when I get rich.
4. Any bookstore. One of my favorite forms of relaxation.

Four Albums You Can't Live Without

1. "The Book of Secrets," Loreena McKennitt. Gorgeous voice, beautiful music. Every track is a gem.
2. "Actual Miles: Don Henley's Greatest Hits," Don Henley. One of rock's best songwriters (check out the snark of "Dirty Laundry," twenty years before the term was invented) and a helluva singer.
3. "Who's Next," the Who. Best line in rock: "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
4. "Backstreet Boys: The Hits, Chapter One," Backstreet Boys. Yes, I like at least one cutesy boy band with killer hooks. Sue me again.

Four Vehicles I've Owned

1. '63 Dodge Dart. Anybody remember that car at all?
2. '94 Ford Mustang. First and so far only brand-new car I ever bought.
3. '69 Ford Mustang. Yeah, I had a bit of a thing for ponies.
4. '91 Nissan Maxima. My "macho" phase.

Good Lord. I didn't realize how incestuous Typepad and Livejournal are getting.

I suppose that's only to be expected. Still, one should stop and think before they commit to fifty or ninety dollars a year with Typepad. I used to have a Typepad account (back before their big user-friendly mixed-media add-ons...whoop-tee-do). The only advantage I could see is you can put as many Typelists as you want on the sidebar, and insert thumbnails for books, cds, etc.

I do wish I could put some additional sideboxes on this layout, but I don't want to go through all the hassle of adding layers, et cetera.

The three column Bloggish layouts are identical to Typepad's. Again, the big difference is that with Typepad's underlying engine of Movable Type, you can arrange the sidebars any way you want.

On the other hand, Typepad doesn't have the f-list feature, or use icons.

I guess it's all what you want to do with a blog. After all, you can have your completely free Blogger site, and manipulate the coding to your heart's content. Personally, I don't have time to fiddle with code. I suppose I'm not a true blogger anyway, since I don't post every day. But I don't want to bleed out my fingers just for the sake of leaking red into cyberspace. I'd like to actually have something to say.

(Maybe this isn't really saying much, either, but I just went through all the Bloggish layouts one by one, and Typepad's oozing into LJ just struck me. So there.)

Words To Live By

There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away. ~Emily Dickinson

Being a writer is a very peculiar sort of a job: it’s always you versus a blank sheet of paper (or a blank screen) and quite often the blank piece of paper wins. ~Neil Gaiman

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in. ~Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The road to hell is paved with adverbs. ~Stephen King

The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read. ~Mark Twain

I feel free and strong. If I were not a reader of books I could not feel this way. ~Walter Tevis

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one. ~George R.R. Martin
