Blog Log: The week in local blogging

So the long wait for the North Carolina primaries finally ended this week. As expected, Scrutiny Hooligans dominated the live blogging scene. In fact, from this pic at Liminal Screeds, you could say Scrutiny Hooligans carried Obama in Buncombe County.

So now its back to the political waiting game, but hey — life goes on. Even the hooligans are moving to a new location, and What to Expect, typically a mainstay in the political discourse, chose chocolate instead.

On the day after the election, Mountain Mama had nothing to say, as is normal on Wordless Wednesdays.

She Who Eats presented a poem about another horse race.

Virtual Inanity reminds us that there is work to be done locally with the Downtown Master Plan survey.

Pacho’s Via wrestled with the personal ethics of an economic-stimulus check (the check won), while Nice Marmot found time to make a list of things un-gettable.

Over at Restless Mama, there were so many things going on that someone just plain passed out.

Skippy Haha wants you to remember your mother this weekend, but Distort the Info wants mom to remember some things herself.

And if, after this week has finally gone by, you still need to vote for something, George the Bastard needs your support.
