Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Every week that goes by, we get to know you bloggers a little bit more. At least we like to think so.

Of course, we already knew some things, like So Much For Tact’s overwhelming need for validation. We also knew of his long-running word-war with Take 5 writer Tim Rawal. But Rawal’s recent departure inspired a very choice send-off from Tact.

We knew that She Who Eats sure does love food, but we didn’t know her enthusiasm was genetic.

We also knew that, on an election night, City Council member Carl Mumpower can usually be found at Magnolia’s. But we did not know that he also sometimes stops by this magnolia, as chronicled by The Ashvillein.

Here’s another thing we didn’t know: How to Take a Fall and Charm of the Highway Strip must be roomies. How else to explain this safety (?) tip, followed by this other report? I mean, how many grenades can there be?

By the by, it’s been awhile since we bid adieu to weatherman Bob Caldwell, but his resurfacing has brought along with it commentary by Ashvegas and Arratik.

We’ve never had any reason to be suspicious of My Weaverville, and we believe her when she says she was spammed, so lay off.

Dancewater has to change the IMPEACH license plate, and now we totally know who they are voting for.

And if these pictures over at Blue Ridge Dreams don’t sum up the season of summer for you, it’s time to turn off the computer and get outside for awhile.

    Thanks for mentioning my blog and the wonderful IMPEACH license plates. I think it is funny that you know who I am voting for – maybe you could tell me, since I haven’t decided yet?
