I promise this is not going to be a blog all about me doing the NYT crossword puzzle. I promise. Okay, I promise that TOMORROW I will not write about a crossword puzzle.
I was fairly gobsmacked when I totally finished today's (Thurs) crossword without once having to turn to Rex for help. It's not that I can't do it, I usually just don't have the time/energy/stars in alignment/lead in my pencil/dog ate my paper/there was a total eclipse of Saturn, so I just couldn't do it. Later on in the day I got on his site to see how he had rated the crossword (easy/medium, darn it). I noticed he had a place in his sidebar for "friends of the show" and lo and behold, there was my humble little blog. How cool is that. I also noticed that he has another site Pop Sensation - Vintage Paperbacks and Other Cultural Detritus. Definitely worth a gander.
It got me thinking - the borg queen and I could start a blog about Grace Livingston Hill. Between us we probably have 40 to 50 of her books (at the very least). GLH was amazingly prolific, if not uniformly great in her literary efforts. Her books are good clean fun, not that she necessarily meant them to be fun (she had a lamentable lack of humor).
So..how about it? Resistance is futile.....
