I was catching up with my Reader after nearly a month away from any serious blog-reading time. One of my favourite blogs touched on a lot of things I've been thinking about, worrying about. Things I've been assessing and feeling and wondering about. I shared it with a number of people over e-mail and over facebook- it's what we all do, right? It was the best thing I'd read all week (and I'd read some seriously brilliant stuff) and the simple act of sharing the post reminded me of all the other brilliant posts out there that I'm missing out on, that aren't being shared as widely as they possibly could be.
So, I thought I'd ask 20sb: what's the best blogpost (not one you wrote) you read this week? What made you think, assess, question, laugh out loud, hurt, smile, giggle, snort into your Snuggie? Why?
I'll start.This post on being an obsessive tennis/sports fan was one I (obviously) related to. It wasn't just that my appreciation for Maria Sharapova had also evolved in the past few years, it was that I knew exactly what the writer meant when she quoted Hesse- 'If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us'. I relate to that very true thought- obsessive; illogical fandom aside- I can see why Federer annoys me, why Caroline Wozniacki pisses me off. It's the exact same things I dislike in them that I worry about in my own personality and sense of self. Hesse (and Kait) are right- I hate something in them that is part of myself.
Except for the bit where I detest Margaret Court with the fire of a thousand suns- a bigot is a bigot is a bigot.
ok, best post I've read so far this week was the latest from Tim about bratty kids and his letter of resignation.
It's just so well written!

He has a very talented way of painting a picture. And this post made me laugh.

Nicole wrote a wonderful post about the cancellation of the New York Marathon, which was her first, and how despite the cancellation she ran anyway:
It's not a 20sb member, but honestly I've re-read this like 3 times: http://www.theawl.com/2012/12/my-superpower-is-being-alone-forever-...
