I've not been linking to Blawg Review lately. Where is my loyalty? Sorry, Ed.
Last week, Prof. Maule of Mauled Again wrote a right-on description of The Mommy Blawg. Having hosted a Blawg Review, I know how hard it is to sift through all the entries, view all the blawgs, and make quick sense of them. Good job.
Blawg Review #54, on Brandy Karl's bk!, introduces my Placenta piece with this quote from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words "EAT ME" were beautifully marked in currants. "Well, I'll eat it," said Alice, "and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door: so either way I'll get into the garden, and I don't care which happens!"She writes, "More than you ever wanted to know about placentas and related curiosities from the Mommy Blawger, who explores the topic in near-excruciating (only so because of the topic) detail." You think that's excruciating? Just wait until my piece on umbillical cords. That will be excruciating.
