blog crush: ohfortheloveofblog

it was so much fun indulging yesterday in the whole concept of outwardly declaring my blog crushes (instead of just stalking them in silence), that i have to give you another one for the weekend!  and yes, it's another south africa-based blog.  i have a bit of a thing for cape town and have been a faithful reader of molly's ohfortheloveofblog since she found me last summer (after i bought heather moore's fabulous patchwork and went all giddy about it).

so molly, since it's the weekend and who the hell cares whether it's 5 p.m. yet (it must be 5 somewhere), this glass of crisp cold chardonnay is for you. i hope you like it, i bought it in norway, so it was $45.

i recently gave molly a blog award, but i really can't stress enough how cool and funny and smart i think she is.
  1. she's the one who has me counting all my creativity during 2009 (we're both trying to reach 100 things created and we may have gotten a little creative in our counting--hey, does that count?). 
  2. she has the cleverest titles to her posts. like this. and this.
  3. she loves murakami
  4. she rants and swears
  5. she makes lists. (sigh) oh, how i adore lists.
  6. she devises clever plots against her avocodo-hoarding neighbors. 
and except for the camping, she's pretty much me living in cape town. or so i feel sometimes (and i realize she may find that deeply disturbing). there are a few people i've found here in the blogosphere who i feel are my long-lost sisters and molly is definitely one of them.

so please go check her out, if we all do it, she'll have to change her tagline which today reads: "blog like nobody's reading." 

happy weekend!

There has got to be some sort of weird brain melt across continents thing happening here, since Molly is the person, other than you, who linked to in my post today.
Weird, and worth yet more bottles of chenin blanc, or what?

julochka said...

i saw your comment on her blog and just read your post just now--she's so cool!

you really should just email me--my email's in my profile, then we don't have to have all these convos in the comments. :-)

Molly said...

you guys ... [blush] ...

KLo said...

Molly's blog is very cool : )

Polly said...

thanks for this - and the previous - posts, very useful because I usually don't have time to browse through blogs in search of the really good ones so you're doing the job for me! thanks!!

Heather Moore said...

Molly's blog sure is cool, and as for Molly herself, well she's off the scale cool for sure. and the wierdest thing about this post is that just yesterday we were having the conversation about whether or not she'd like more people to read her blog. Well, now it's whether for sure! Enjoy the traffic, Molly!

love your blog you are like the crazy sister i never had....love the moments of randomness and your insights leave me laughing out loud...love your blog.

Soozie said...

I literally just started my own blog a couple of days ago. Yours was the first blog I stumbled upon and I therefore must confess you to be my first blog crush. I love your writing and think you're fab. I aspire to have such an interesting blog as yours! Thanks for the links to your blog crushes - they're great!

Suecae Sounds said...

Damn. I so want a glass of white wine now. Maybe I'll have to go a round to Systembolaget and get me a bottle for the weekend. :)

Extranjera said...

Ok, have to comment on this. Suecae Sounds - only A bottle, for the WHOLE weekend?!?! I must be an alcoholic indeed...

Anyhow Julochka, stopped by to give on to you an 'Honest Scrapper' award. Rules in my blog. You deserve it!

julochka said...

i have to admit the question of only one bottle occurred to me as well...it must be that whole systembolaget thingie they've got in sweden. :-) i personally have one for me to drink in the next hour before the guests come and then 5 for when they're here--one for each of us plus an extra. :-) this will dull the pain of the fact that i cannot think of anything to make so i may serve them potato chips.

i'll check out the award, but i warn you, i'm bad with those things...it takes me forever to pass them along. i'll try to be better.

happy weekend everybody--thanks for the sweet comments everybody and enjoy molly's blog! :-)

An Open Heart said...

Okay, so, you are hysterical! Great writing. I love that you post your blog crushes, what fun. I've checked both 'what will I ever do with my life?' and 'ohfortheloveofblog' and am following them as well. Thank you.

Char said...

you are extra warm and gooey this week with all the lovin' - of course I always love to check a good pimp for a fellow blogger and I will be sure to check out Molly.

julochka said...

sorry, char, i'll be back to my normal snarky ranting self next week, no doubt. it's just been so much fun!

xox,

Vancouver's Enviro Girl said...

I have the exact same blog crush as you...extrajera is my first and fave blog I read everyday!

Suecae Sounds said...

Haha. I love your comments about my lack of drinking! Maybe there is such a think as drinking to little? ;)

Extranjera said...

Suecae Sounds - Sure there is. Someday us borderline alcoholics will take over the world and then systembolaget and the Finnish Alko will just have to get with the program, and stop being so weird! I want to be able to buy wine 3am Wednesday morning. That is my Zeus/ Odin given right. Dammit!

AND ohfortheloveofblog must be the best blog name EVER!
