I Think I Think

One of D1's favorite little sayings goes as follows: "I think I thought a thought, but if I thought the thought I thought I thought, what was I thinking?"

Well, apparently David McMahon thinks something about me, as he nominated Uncommon Notions as one of five blogs that makes him think. At first, I was very excited. It is nice to be recognized for your thinking cap, you know? Then, I realized just because I make him think, does not necessarily mean I am a noteworthy thinker. I could simply be making him think, "What is she thinking?"

Either way, I'll accept the distinction and run. In return I am tagging five other blogs that make me think. Here they are:

1. Eve the Quest Writer that I hope will still remember me and the other small people when she is a rich and famous novelist.
2. Snippets and Blabbery where, like a 25 cent toy vending machine, you never know what you are going to get.
3. S1's TJ Side of Life whose blog proves, despite his height and love for the claustrophobic hobby of scuba diving, he takes after his mom in at least one sense.
4. Jenera Healy's A Day In The Life that authenticates the existence of at least one Republican living in Oregon.
5. Colleen at a Simple Kind of Life where her life is really not as simple as she may try to lead you to believe.

I was going to award Craver Vii, but since he was already tagged a couple weeks ago, I'll pass. We don't want anything this big going to his head.

And now for the fine print:

The rules are: a) If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to five blogs that make you think, and b) link to this post so that people can easily find the origin of this award.


  1. We both make David think. Awesome!




  2. Bart,
    Well someone's got to, might as well be us!

  3. G'day Bart and Deborah,

    You sure do make me think. I always enjoy reading your thoughts and I have enjoyed your response.

    Deborah, lovely turn of phrase about the 25-cent vending machine!

    I love the sound of S1's blog. Will vist in the course of the day. And yes, Jenera's work is always fascinating - have you checked out her new photography blog?

    Take care, all.


  4. Almost tagged? To that I say, "Ni!"

    But oh, Eve was tagged. That's good; she leaves great comments, too. It has happened more than once that I was still in the middle of formulating my own response, only to find that she said it first... and better.

  5. Deb, I'm almost speachless! I am truly honored!

    Craver, thanks! I love taking the words right out of your mouth...er head?

  6. Thanks, Deb! I sometimes worry that my blog is too unfocused, but here you are rewarding me for it :) Thanks for reading, and for including me in this interesting pool of bloggers!

  7. Craver -
    Ni!? You are too funny. And so good at proving my theory on the simplicity of a man's brain.
    Thank you!

  8. Eve,
    You are so humble - just don't go Melinda Doolittle on me okay?

  9. Abi,
    You are welcome - someday I'll figure out how to read a novel leisurely. And then I'll start tackling some listed on your blog.

    Now if I start to read I can't stop. I really can't stop. Laundry isn't done, homework isn't done, meals aren't made and diapers aren't changed. And I defintely don't sleep. So I have to say no reading unless I'm on a vacation without my kids. Hence, I do very little novel reading. Sad, huh?

  10. Deb, I'll try not to (*talking to myself*-"what is she talking about?!")

  11. Eve,
    You are clearly not an American idol fan. Melinda Doolittle is the contestant that sings amazingly well and everytime she finishes she shrinks up and goes all bugged eyed when the judges are the leasat bit kind to her. It has become more than annoying as the exact same thing happens week after week.

  12. Forgive me for being slow on the uptake but I've been in and out of town for a bit.

    I'm not sure how to link back to you but I'll try! Thank you so much for mentioning me! It makes me feel like I'm doing something right!
