I certainly wasn´t the first of my friends to get in on the blogging act. I suspect that honour would have to go to Ollie, who started the Revolicktion way back in 2003. Granted, it hasn´t been updated for a couple of years, but he was definitely an early adopter!
Since I´m not that trendy myself, it took me until 2007 to become a blogger, first on Mahendra´s ties, and then with my own blog. While, most probably, it had very little do to with me, I still like to take the credit for several friends´entrances to the blogosphere, most notably Bec with her Plan B, and Bean´s Canadian Chronicles, both of which I have referenced before.
And now there are some new bloggers to welcome to the internet fold: Carla´s theatrically camp It´s just a stage; Belle Rudetha Prannyshake´s delightful mix of the quotidian and the whimsical in her Life and opinions; and Frankie´s blatant attempt to blag a job in journalism with Unabashed careerism. I´ll keep reading, if you guys keep posting!
T: I like hairdresser Neil. He told me I was the most stylish woman at the party.
Damian: Dahling, he told me that too.
T (raises eyebrows): Really? The most stylish woman?
Ralph: So what do you call people who live in Dubai anyway? Dubaiites?
GX: Dubaiers? Dubaians?
T: No, actually we´re called expats.
CdS: Your new hair is so hot.
T: Thank you.
CdS: It´s like the sphinx. Very Cleopatra.
T: Except her hair wasn´t blonde.
CdS: It´s like Cleopastra times 9/11!
If anyone else has ever heard this expression before, please enlighten me…
T is blatantly fishing for compliments about her new look.
T: Do you notice anything different about me since this morning?
Extended pause as AT looks her up and down, clearly puzzled.
Suddenly, he has a flash of inspiration.
AT: Your boobs are more prominent!
