Tour de Munuviana

When I do Rocketing Around the Blogosphere, I tend to link non-Munuvians. Thanks to Victor (again!) for the inspiration, I'll start doing an occasional post like this that is mainly, but not necessarily exclusively, Munuvian.

First things first, but not necessarily in that order. We've got trolls! Mr. Green had the first run-in with one JadeGold and soon many Munuvians were involved. Rather than try to make sense of the running battle, I'll just link to a few and let you sort it out for yourself. Lots of non-Munuvians on the link list at Heathers place too. They've also set up the Gold Enclave of Privileged Capitalists, complete with graphics supplied by Jennifer and Cherry. Woot! (can a privileged capitalist say that?)

Later, Mookie got her own troll. I know the gentleman (notice I didn't say 'boy') in question, and I am not happy.

In other MookieNews, there are recent reports of not just one, but two many other Mookies out there! Be afraid. Also, just to embarrass her (which is one of my favorite parental perks), I'll announce now that although she was born in Landstuhl, Germany, Mookie was concieved in Luxembourg.

Victor attended the Tour of Hope ceremony this weekend. He posted some excellent pictures as well. If you haven't already, do go see.

Our resident Rat-meister also set up an informal wagering system for us Munuvian hockey fans. Losers must display the logo of the winner's team for a day.

Uber-traveler Lady H continues her globetrotting ways. She's in Atlanta, was there time or inclination to set up a visit with Daniel?

Pixy gets into an analysis of Cowboy Bebop, which is a famous Anime series. I always thought 'anime' was Japanese for 'crappy cartoon', but my opinion has changed some in the last year. I've seen a couple series where the story was so good that you forgot the quirks of Japanese animation. Unfortunately, I've also seen popular series (Trigun comes to mind) where my original opinion is just reinforced.

Nobody ever answered my question. What's the difference between Manga and Anime?

Susie gets my vote for best blog banner out there! She also thinks Daniel is adorable. Jennifer agrees, but says she knew it first.

Jen also claims that there is in fact water in Iowa. Sorry dear, that's not water, it's creamed corn.

Tuning Spork is still out there, because he leaves comments. But he's not posting much. My guess is it's the combination of the Cubs losing, beautiful fall weather, and idiotarians. Guess he picked the wrong day to quit smoking, eh?

Over at Chez Cheese, LeeAnn blogs about panty liners and the importance of accuracy. For some reason, I kept hearing those scenes from Memphis Belle in the background... "Steady... steady... right in the pickle barrel!" Make sure you read the comments, but don't touch the cars or you might set off the alarms.

Mmmmm. Carrot cake, courtesy of the official mascot of the Alliance.

Stevie never ceases to amaze me.

Anger Management's Don posted this link about the unedited communications when man landed on the moon. Priceless.

Jim, being the last kid picked when we chose up teams, gets this single solitary mention. Mainly because otherwise he'll get mad and take his blog home. Actually, it's just because I'm tired of all this linking. You're up at the top next time guys - for a small financial consideration - because I am part the Gold Enclave of Privileged Capitalists.

Creamed corn! I laughed out loud.

Manga are comic books. Anime is cartoons (the word "anime" comes from "animation").

And again, no one seems to ever mention my most pretigious munu blog Abject Apathetic Procrastination. I am sensing some unspoken bias against kangaroos is going around the blogosphere. ;)

Yeah, Missouri is SOOOO much cooler than Iowa, Heather. :-p

Tiger, I'll mention AAP if you tell me what pretigious means.

Pixy, is that really the difference? Wow, I thought it was some obscure and subtle difference that anime enthusiasts argued over. Like Trekkies and their Picard vs. Kirk thing.
