blog crush: holli's ramblings



normally when i blog crush, i offer my blog crush a tasty beverage, however, this world art that i snapped last week in the airport in copenhagen just seemed so appropriate for my latest blog crush. especially as it features africa right there in the middle of the picture. serendipity? i think so.

because my latest blog crush is holli's ramblings, a blog by a canadian in ghana (which, as we know, is in AFRICA) who calls herself a pale observer. she's been by here at MPC several times lately and i've been so busy, i didn't get a chance to check out her blog until today.  ASIDE: bloggy tip - if you leave me a comment, i will always click your profile and check our your blog and if you have an email address attached to your profile, i'll probably even answer you directly! so leave a comment, ok?  anyway, back to my blog crush....

a pale observer is funny, smart, thoughtful, living outside the country of her birth and like me has some magnetic force which interferes with electronic devices (damn, that shoulda been one of my secrets). she keeps stuff in boxes in her parents' basement (also like me), only her stuff is all deep and erudite and mine is pretty much a lot of clothing from the 90s that i'm never going to fit into wear again. she writes about deep stuff like the environment but also about hair-related accidents. she's one of us!

in short, holli's ramblings is my latest blog crush and she should be yours too.

So glad I'm not the only expat storing boxes of things in my mum's basement. Must point this out to my mum... K x

hello from Phnom Penh! this looks like another blog that I will follow in your stalking steps. I've just looked at your friday confession photos, they are gorgeous, I can't believe there is frost anywhere in the world at the moment, it's so hot here in Cambodia. I'm having the best time, it's a stunning country and the temples are breathtaking. I already have 1000 photos and still two weeks to go...
