Inspirational Posts from the Roxiticus Best Blogs

As we come up on the third blogiversary celebration of Roxiticus Desperate Housewives, I've posted there about Instructions to the Double, the blog that inspired Roxy to start blogging. I've truly enjoyed reviewing that blog, and I've received many favorable comments from bloggers who share my intrigue. I realized that every blog has a story, and I may not know what it is, even when it comes to my favorite bloggers. So, over the coming weeks, I'm going to refresh my linky love on all the existing Roxiticus Best Blogs, and accept nominees for new Roxiticus Best Blogs. All I ask is that you share with me one or more of your favorite posts (along with any background from the blogger) by leaving a comment here with a link to the specific post(s) URL(s). I'll check them out, "reprint" them here with your permission, and link to your blog. I hope you'll find it as much fun to look at the history of our favorite blogs as I will.

Deb On the Rocks (Her EntreCard Says "LapDance"

I found Deb on the Rocks one night while I was out cruising the blogosphere on EntreCard, bringing home the best bedtime entertainment for my Roxiticus Desperate Housewives Readers.

While some of my regular readers spend a good deal of their time ROFL (rolling on the floor, laughing), Deb on the Rocks actually "took me there" with her Night-Night Story for the Jolie-Pitt Children. Go there. Wake your kids up now! Read it to them. Good family fun.

(Still not sleepy? Yes, I'll bring you a glass of water, and you can also hear another story: A Night-night Fairytale for Suri Cruise. And after that? Lights Out! I mean it!)

July 22nd update: Henceforth, Deb would like to be known as a "mythical hobbit." By the power of the Genies' magical lamp vested in me, I hereby grant her wish.

SpicyBug Here...and There

Spicy Bug is one of my favorite BlogExplosion finds...she's a mom, and a grandmom, blogging in between chasing after babies and toddlers all day long and trying to get a little sleep at night...and she's one of the nicest people I've met out there in the blogosphere. SpicyBugz World is the only place where Roxiticus Desperate Housewives is one of the top ten EntreCard droppers. I may not always be numero uno, but at least I'm on her list. In fact, I've been reluctant to take an Internet-free vacation for fear of dropping out of Spicy Bug's top ten. I started reading SpicyBugz World whenever she participated in a Battle of the Blogs, and I haven't is loads of fun and surprisingly addictive.

SpicyBug describes her blog as a "Little bit of this and a whole lot of that. My daily adventures, joys, heartaches, laughter and tears." On December 8, 2005, Spicy Bug launched her blog with the following answer to "Who Am I?":

"I went outside this evening after a strong snow storm. The wind was still blowing but the snow had ended. As I stood out on my deck, with the wind whipping my hair all around. I got lost in thought, as I often do. Who am I? a small voice whispered in my head. I then saw a sparkling diamond, shimmering in the sun. Who am I? I am your neighbor, the girl next door. I am the nurse at your doctor's office, the cashier at the grocery store. I am the grandmother down the road who bakes cookies and apple pies. I am the lonely housewife who sits home remembering when children used to run thru the house. I am the sexy model on TV. I AM that diamond. And like that diamond I have many sparkling facets. I can’t be put in a box and labeled as one thing. Each time you look at me, you will see a new and amazing color. Watch me Shine. "

And now, congratulations girlfriend! You beat me to the punch and introduced your very own URL,! Let's all head out and pay a visit to the new, improved SpicyBugz World!!

Rent Your Cars Now for the Roxiticus Best Blogs Dinner Party

Now that I've got the new dining room set and Rex has committed to a pistachio encrusted rack of lamb as the main course for our Roxiticus Best Blogs dinner party, there's just the small matter of getting all of you top bloggers here to the Roxiticus Valley, New Jersey. I believe you can get a direct flight in to Newark International Airport from most Roxiticus Best Blogs locations, including Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia. If not, you'll have to fly into JFK. Either way, there's an Advantage car rental available for you, and there are even some special offers that would get you up to a 50% discount on luxury and hot red convertible car rentals. Just let me know which date works best for all of you.

Henson's Hell

Henson is funny. Very creative and very very funny.

Something you might not know about me is that I'm not so good with'd have to drag me kicking and screaming to the movies if they were showing a "comedy," but Henson makes me laugh. LOL as they say. LMAO as they say.

Check out his blog. I found him through the extensive comments on Matt's MTMD/Michigan Rafter blog, since he's got this nekked avatar that shows up whenever he makes a comment. Henson describes his blog as random musings and humorous observations on pop culture from Henson Ray of "It Happened in Plainfield." And Plainfield, NJ, it turns out, is the town where I was born. Many years ago.

Every now and then, I drive Henson crazy by giving him a little homework, in the form of a meme or two that have been passed along from blog to blog like an urban legend until he twists it in his own humorous way. And whatever Henson may say, ROXY is not a four letter word. I mean, it has four letters, but...see what I mean? He's got me tripping all over my tongue.

I've also been known to show my face on his EntreCard widget and vice versa. So head on over to Henson's Hell and let me know how hot it is...don't wait until Hell freezes over.
