Oh look it’s Saturday again. And it’s a lovely cloudy day. Lovely cloudy because I slept in till 11. Lovely cloudy because breakfast was once again cholesterol based. Irish bacon has been replaced with Luxembourg Judd and the Judd performed its duties exquisitely. Spanish tortilla remains spanish tortilla. I only added a bit of fried red peppers and shallots. The coup de grace today came with the baked beans. Normally I just add them to a bit of fried onions and heat them up. Today I added a blob of roquefort* towards the end. Divine.
I know that normally I.M. Jack is a news round up of sorts but I am not feeling up to providing links this morning/afternoon. I did read Bocca’s column and was not surprised to find that he has treated a couple of subjects that appear in my article tomorrow (The Cost of Free Speech). Not surprised not because I suspect any amount of spying or because of the old adage regarding great minds thinking alike and such (cannot really apply can it?) but rather because the past week was a bit soft on supplying juicy bites for columns. Anyways do rush out and buy the Indy tomorrow not only because of the J’accuse article but also because I am particularly proud of Bertu’s latest toon. I’m sure you’ll love it.
It is now safe. Bloggers who were slightly miffed by the extra attention afforded to the blogosphere during election time – especially bloggers who could not give two hoots about politics yet were worried of the labelling effect of political debate – can now crawl out of their respective hideouts and regale us with more interesting alternative subjects. I want to hear more about Claire’s law exams, ninhuadida’s meanderings, Maltagirl’s conjugal joys and the occasional artistic dig by nigredo and gybexi (I am told that even Immanuel’s blobb is back to life). I know that not of all them stayed silent during the storm and I know that there are more around but this is just a Saturday Sample. Let the blogosphere continue its natural erratic course and continue to widen its frontiers. Blogs the final frontier. Anyways. The absence of links in this paragraph should not frustrate readers and bloggers alike. All mentioned bloggers can be found in the J’Accuse Blogroll.Just click on the apposite link in the right hand sidebar (there’s only one sidebar anyway). One last thing if you have not joined Blogs of Malta don’t forget to do so as a reader or as a blogger. More pleasures ahead for that particular forum.
Is what is missing when you blog. Blogs, articles, work, the girlfriend, the flat and the life. Which is why I will stop writing now and be off to enjoy the weekend.
This has been I.M.Jack… blogging so you don’t have to…. have a nice weekend.
