Events to remember #2



International White Band Day

“On December 10th, you can wear the white band and show you’re part of the fight against global AIDS and extreme poverty. On this final White Band Day of 2005, one of three days this year when people from America to Zambia unite in ONE voice, we can move a step closer to making poverty history by making trade fair.

World leaders took important steps at the G8 Summit in July and the World Summit in September. Now they must help make trade part of the solution to poverty, instead of one of the causes. As people around the world gather to mark White Band Day, leaders from around the world will also gather in Hong Kong to consider this opportunity to help millions lift themselves out of poverty by changing the rules of trade.”

Blogs of note #18



Worth a mention, good for a laugh

TGIF…it’s a “feature” day at BD@BS!! It’s been almost a month, but I still read random nonsense on the Internet -duh. Let’s see who we can talk about today…on with the sideshow!

The woman speaks eighteen languages and can’t say “No” in any of them. – Aside from being as sick as the rest of the blogverse (is there a blog flu going around or what??) I have been a lurking reader for some time. She talks about work and when she things work is boring, it’s about bar talk.

Lightning Bug’s Butt – He likes hate mail…no really. Check out his post “Bigotry: The forgotten virtue“. Top notch.

Graffiti Paparazzi – Preserving bathroom stall poetry since November 2004.

Open Letters – “All the things I can’t say to all the people I can’t speak to for one reason or another.” One of my favorites is about thinking of someone from the past while looking through CDs.

Love is a C**t
A group of bitter, cynical and jadded folks sick of love. “Hopeless romantics that have been worn away by those they love” -some days I fit right in.
