A Recommendation

By Mark Trodden | September 7, 2006 11:07 pm

OK, I usually don’t do this, but I just had a great blogosphere moment and thought I’d share. While checking the recent comments on my Café Scientifique: Season Two post, I came across a contribution by Allyson.

Now, as it turns out, Allyson has commented on Cosmic Variance before, but I hadn’t noticed. In particular, she had fun things to say following Sean’s Rapped on the Head by Creationists post.

In any case, I just found myself laughing out loud at some of the exquisite phrasing on her blog – Depth of a Puddle – which is subtitled Writing, Essays, and Random Acts of Sarcasm. I strongly recommend it to you. I think you’ll find some gems.

    This line especially made me laugh out loud: Is this heaven?: No, it’s Iowa.

    I have way too much personal experience with that.

    Mark! I feel like one of the cool kids, now. And really wish I had spellchecked more.

    allyson’s stuff from what I’ve read on her website, and her in-person humor, is great. A definite recommendation. Keep an eye out for her book soon….

    “Is this heaven?: No, it’s Iowa.” I believe this was said in Field of Dreams by the Shoeless Joe Jackson character

    great recommendation! I just had so much fun.
