If you were a young girl who insisted that her favorite animal was a platypus, because you didn’t want to like dolphins or dogs or ponies like everyone else, and because you knew the name of your favorite animal should be nearly as fascinating as the animal itself–just saying platypus evoked its uniqueness (this was before you learned of echidnas, but is it a surprise that your son would someday count them as his favorite creature?). If this is you, then you might understand why this girl was delighted to receive the gift of a plush platypus from a Mom who just returned from exploring the underside of the globe. :)

So here’s my try at 5 Thoughtful Blogs (Note: limiting this to people I’ve actually corresponded with, or met in person, so the chances of them acknowledging the award is fairly high. Also, if your blog isn’t listed here it doesn’t mean that I don’t find it thoughtful! I love reading all of your blogs–add your URL in the comments if you’re new to pilgrimgirl and I’ll add you to my googlereader)
Bonny’s blog is honest, insightful, and fun to read. I like hearing about her journey and I like that she’s my Friend. She’s also a wickedly good Ticket to Ride player! :)
Bored in Vernal
I like how BiV and I often see eye-to-eye on social issues, feminism, etc, yet we’re at different stages of life and circumstances. I’m grateful for the magic of the internet that’s allowed me to get to know her better!
The Observant Woman
Add this one to your daily checklist of blogs. SL digests important issues related to women’s health. Her commentary is both incisive and provocative.
Deborah’s posts on ExponentII are always great, but I’m also enjoying her literary insights. Having been a bibliophile since childhood, with a continued fondness for YA lit, I love reading her book reviews!
For those I tagged, please read the following rules…
