There’s a fun question we used to ask each other in high school – would you rather be thought of as athletic, smart, good looking or funny?
I think because I am so clearly gorgeous and obviously athletic that the fantasy here come down to either smart or funny for me. Which would I rather be?
I think it’s smart. I’d rather be thought of as smart. Even if I have to fake it by reading books that explain what other smart people have thought in the past and then pretend to have known it already.
So, when one of my favorite blogs, Poor Richard’s Almanac, gave me the Thinking Blogger Award I was very pleased right straight down to my ego. If you’ve never read their blog, get to it. Most of you probably already do, but Silence Dogood, Our Friend Ben and Richard Saunders write like crazy and it’s all very, very good. Funny and entertaining. Informative, erudite.
The spirit of the award is to link to 5 blogs that make you think. These memes can get crazily out of hand (who do you nominate!) and the folks at Poor Richard’s Alamanac dealt with that nicely by creating an open invite for self nomination! Nice solution I think.
For me, I believe I will copy that. All of the blogs in my blogroll are thought provoking! You all deserve this award.
Outside of the gardening world I would like to direct any of my readers to some of the best thought-provoking blogs that I know of.
Now I am off to do some deep thinking stuff. Like play World Of Warcraft for hours. See, I am totally smart.
P.S. I too must admit.. I am not full of think enough to figure out how to put the nifty award logo pic on my site. But I am smart enough to know that that’s ironic.
