Every Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. A friend on Facebook pointed me to this hysterical post on Yahoo! Travel featuring excerpts from foreign travel guides about Britain. LOL funny.

2. Speaking of Facebook, here’s a terrific piece from the Montreal Gazette on what it’s like to dumped on FB (via the ever-lovely Sharon Hyman of Neverbloomers).

3. On a more serious note, I was quite taken with this essay by Clay Graham on the New York Times Modern Love column about what happens when work gets in the way of romance (but not in the obvious way.)

4. I always love Michelle Kerns’ quirky and insightful book examiner column on examiner.com. Here she is talking about the seven stages of grief you go through when you buy a hardcover and realize that it wasn’t worth it.

5. And while we’re on the subject of books, if you haven’t yet come across this little gem – I write Like – I’d suggest that you give it a whirl. It’s a website that tells you which famous writer your writing style resembles. I came up as Vladimir Nabokov and I must say that I’m quite psyched about that. Who knew that my writing was so racy?

6. Finally, for those who are interested, here’s my post on www.PoliticsDaily.com about the Church of England’s war over women.

    Re the flap in the C of E over making women bishops: one can only hope Anglicans-Episcopalians who wish to leave the faith of their fathers for the Roman Church will do so. “My object all sublime, I shall achieve in time — to make the punishment fit the crime!”

    I had so much fun browsing through your site that I had to post about today. I can easily relate to your blog theme about adulthood. In fact, one of my power team members lamented only yesterday, ‘I wish I knew what I wanted to be when I grow up’………..

    She asked if I’ve ever felt that way, and I have!

    So, although this is my first time visit it, I know it won’t be my last!

    Here’s wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places.

    ‘I Write like’ says I write like Edgar Allen Poe. Feck! But thanks for putting up the link.
