It looks like frequent commenter Lisa W. has succumbed to the Temptations of the Bloggy-Sphere, finally starting her own Online Electronic InterWeb-Journal. The site is called Lemons and Lollipops, a neat alliterative reference to Things Acidic and Sweet - the two extremes between which we navigate in our daily lives.

[Hmmm. Taste analogies. How ’bout Bitter and Salty: Campari and Crab Dip.]

Ahhh, Lisa, Lisa. You have no idea what you are getting into, do you? The wasted hours, the sleepless nights...and eventually, you will want to attend one of those notorious “Blog-Meets,” such as that little three-day Southeastern Writers’ Conference, Tea Party, and Ice Cream Social we have in Helen, Georgia...or the Blown-Eyed Blodger wingding in Austin, Texas. [Do you even know where the term “Blown-Eyed Blodgers” came from? Hint: It has something to do with a whiskery sort of fish...]

Debauchery, thy name is “Bloggy.”

Lisa, welcome to our strange little world. We look forward to your providing a uniquely Canajan perspective on life. And I’m sure we’ll enjoy your writing...because there is only one bore* in New Brunswick, and you’re not it.

* A subtle reference to the geography of St. John, home of the famous Bay of Fundy Tidal Bore. Heh.
