A Tagging We Will Go...

And here's where I finish up the Commenter's Tag. This is the one where I answer a specific question about the blog of each of the last ten commenter's. Keep in mind, there's a good chance I'll be at times thoughtful, and at other times, way off topic, and there just might be some snarkiness thrown in for good measure.

But first, how about some pics from down under? What's that you say...? NO? Harumph, too bad cus you're gonna git em. If you don't like the pics you can just scroll past them.

Firstly, how about a pic of a couple of Pacific Black Ducks have a bath in the pool?

This cockatoo has badazz landing skillz:

Naturally, the sheila is much more graceful:

I think they put this up for the tourists...

Here's what His High and Mighty Highness, Lord and Master of All He Surveys, Prince Bagheera has to say about the whole situation:

And now for my answers to question about each of the last ten commenters!

1. What's your favorite post from #3's blog?

SV Meerkat has a great blog. Do I have a favourite post? Nope. Why not? Well, Jim and Heather are retired and living on a 49 foot sailboat in Baja and they have lots of posts about cruising the islands, drinking wine, eating fresh fish, and partying in La Paz. Hmmmmm, can't think a favourite post; they are all great!

2. Has #10 taken any pictures that moved you?

Cathy up in Kotzebue takes great pics. I love her dog pics and the mushing pics. As far as inspiring... One of her latest has inspired me: I need to learn to take great sunset pics.

3. Does #6 reply to comments on his or her blog?

Yes, Arvay does. Well, except when she's not busy kicking serious butt in post-graduate physics and engineering classes. In fact, many of her comment reply are better than her posts. This one is a good example. *snort, giggle*

4. Which part of blogland is #2 from?

Ole KC is actually in my hometown of Squarebanks, Alaska. Right smack dab in the middle of the Interior of nowhere! Well, I'm not sure if he's from there or not, but that's certainly where he is now.

5. If you could give one piece of advice to #7, what would it be?

This would be fozzywog in Ohio. Don't let your manfriend go!!! He sounds like a great bloke.

6. Have you ever tried something from #9's blog?

Yes, yes I have. However, we will never, ever, ever talk about skinny dipping in the Bering Sea in wintertime ever again. BTW, if you want great pics of life on the Aleutian Chain, go visit Alaska Steve's blog.

7. Has #1 blogged something that inspired you?

Marie has inspired me to make fermented fish. No, just don't ask... She has also inspired me not to take anything around South Oz for granted!

8. How often do you comment on #4's blog?

Often enough (and snarkily enough) that I think Fishmeal wants to come down here to beat the crap out of me. Or buy me a beer, hard to tell which.

9. Do you wait for #8 to post excitedly?

Waaaaaah! The one blog I don't have a chance to read enough... Ummmmm, hmmmm, that's some awfully weird syntax for this question. Shouldn't it be, "Do you wait excitedly for #8 to post?" Oh, what do I know. What I do know is that Paige seems to be a very nice lady and I need to read her blog more often.

10. How did #5's blog change your life?

I think that Suzer's blog has inspired me to get a bit more connected with folks around the world. As there is a great many cool people out there and it's nice to get to know a few of them.

Whoops, I just ended a post on a serious note! Definitely haven't had enough beer this morning...


Ishmael said...

It's all about the beer, mate. But I'll have to come down in the winter, when it's only 80 degrees.

Fizzgig said...

I think ill keep him. he's a good guy! Those ducks are soooo cute! I'd prob hate having ducks in my pool but id like to think id enjoy them!

Jim and Heather on Meerkat said...

Love the tagging and all that you said about everyone. Us included and on the next post too. Too funny! You do crack me up!
Does this mean I am supposed to do this now?

Suzer said...

Really,'d I do that?

Alaskan Dave Down Under said...

Ish: Nah, mate! Ya gotta visit in our summer! Heck, it's only 90 F in the shade right now, still spring! Imagine having a walk on the beach on Christmas morning and watching all the "scenery". :)

Fizzy: Keep yer bloke, he sounds fair dinkum. The ducks are fine until it's time to clean the crap from the bottom of the pool...

SV Meerkat: If you can convince those two humans you hang out with to do the tag, then they can go for it!

Suzer: ...ummmm... well... gosh... I had to write SOMETHING! Seriously though, you helped me refine my global view of society --or some such crap like that.
