Just a couple last minute thoughts on Shakespeare's Sister and the support the blogosphere showed her last week.
1. Drifty had a great idea. He's amazing.
2. I emailed a whole buncha bloggers about that idea, and it snowballed from there. The only reason I mention this is that if you are a blogger, and you are not on my email list of "fellow bloggers," feel free to email me at bluegalsblog AT gmail . (If you want to be off the list, email me there too.) I don't pimp my own posts through that list, but I do send out stuff that I think other bloggers will want to know, like the Spartacus idea.
3. As of this writing, there are 1,135 mentions of Spartacus on Google Blog Search in the past week. Nearly all of them are in support of Melissa.
I want to grow old with you people. Seriously. Cue "Let's Stay Together":
I know some bloggers are starting over with their blogrolls. Feh. I've never discovered and added to my blogroll so many fine writers. Welcome to the party.
4. In spite of all the crap she has had to deal with this year, Melissa took the time to link to the Spartacuses who posted comments at her blog.
That shows what kind of person she is.
UPDATE: Ooh! I just got my "I am Spartacus" Pink Petulance T-shirt in the mail! I'm gonna hafta shrink it by Friday night, so my nips will out-perky Konagod's.
