Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Man, what a wreck. Barely into the holidays, and we’ve already made a mess of things.

When we noted a couple of weeks back that Recovering Iowan was still wrapped up in an Obama victory, we didn’t expect to get smacked around in the comments section by Edgy Mama for referring to the blogger as a “he” when she is actually a “she.”

The he/she blogger-gender question is one we have visited before, and Iowan herself didn’t take it very badly, but we just wanted to say that the mixup was probably because we were not very perceptive, and not, as she theorizes, because she has short hair (a style vigorously defended by Adventures of Supermom).

Well, at least we’re not the only ones messing stuff up.

Zenscription has instructions on best how to wreck a demolition derby. Dark Topography’s friends are wrecking nature, while he wrecks the asparagus. Arratik wants us to know that he may have wrecked his face, but at least he didn’t wreck the DJ gear.

A Year in Asheville is getting wrecked at the Holiday Parade, an appropriate pastime considering Et In Arcadia Ego’s post on the anniversary of the end of Prohibition.

And What the Hell? is just … well, a wreck.

But fear not. There are fixers out there. Revenge of the Word Nerd is taking her (his? See what I’m sayin’?) grammatical mission to the streets, and while she can’t fix the economy, People Power Granny has these hints for the recently unemployed.
