Well, there seems to be no official announcement up yet. Which makes me wonder how Ted got the scoop on the new class of Munuvians. (I'm guessing that it was the automated blogroll...?)

Anywho, I've been perusing the Munubies. Give a warm MuNu welcome to S. Faolan Wolf of Nomen Est Omen. This gal likes to, shall we say, vent, and she's got the gift of kvetch.

Then there's Maria of Hatshepsut. Munuvia expands into Iceland! Woo Hoo! Maria might not get it, but there's something very alluring about a gal who dresses in red and black, likes Star Trek, studies religeons (is partial to Judaism), has lived in several differant countries and studied several differant languages and who hates cold weather and opts to live in frickin' Reykjavik. So, please give Maria a very VERY warm welcome!

Next up is my own nominee: Angry In T.O. of Angry In The Great White North. I first read him through a link from Debbye, and saw that he'd been linked by Michelle Malkin and Captain Ed, as well. AiTO is a must read for all the new news on Canadian politics and the big picture.

Then there's USAdave of American Geek. He's got links to, and commentary on, news of the day that you might not have noticed elsewhere. And he's a Peggy Noonan reader! (Peggy's style of writing is what inspired me to begin blogging, myself.) Go give USAdave a "hielow"!

Kyer of Whatsakyer has also been assimilated. Some pointed international news blogging with an interesting focus on Equador. That's new! I've read all of the posts that are up thus far and can't figure out if Kyer is male or female. Aah, mystery. So, like, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Toosie Roll Pop and what's a Kyer? The world may never know...

Phin's Blog, Oorgo Blog, Smiling Dynamite (love that name!), Ogre's Politics And Views and Camp HappyFunBad have yet to complete the move. But, Phin and Oorgo have a post up, so ye may give them a hardy handshake and a welcome.

Which brings us, lastly, to Jess of Life, or Something Like It. I love this guy's posts. He's kinda like a Collins with some manners. Jess might just become a daily read for me.

So, if you're not already doing it automagically, update your blogrolls! And go say hi to the nu neighbors!

Thanks TS. I am humbled.

Nothing so complicated, Spork. The announcement for these guys was made a while back I think, and I finally got around to adding them. So I'm late, that's all.

It's funny to see others writing about me, it's usually the other way around!
And it's not *that* cold in Reykjavik.. Oh who am I kidding, it was snowing today :/

Nope. Spork saved the day. This was the third batch of troops I processed and I forgot to post the welcome.

Thanks for catching it!

Thanks for the welcome! What does "kvetch" mean?

Posted by S. Faolan Wolf at May 2, 2005 09:41 PM

It's yiddish, it means complain. But like all yiddish words, it has subtle overtones. So when Spork says you have the gift of kvetch, he's saying that you post entertaining rants. Which you do. :)

Kvetching is complaining. And having "the gift of kvetch" is doing it with style. :)

And if you're not using the automatic blogrolls, it's really time to switch. Now, before the next hundred new moos arrive. ;)

But I like to list my Munuvians is in little chunks of 6 to 8. Helps my find who I'm looking for. Any chance of creating a special blogroll that lists in chronological order with handy extra breaks so's I can have my munu served bite-sized? If not, I'm gonna tough it out for a while more...

Posted by Tuning Spork at May 3, 2005 04:32 AM

The blogrolls are now generated by Movable Type templates. If you can work out how to do the chunking, I'll add one that does that.

Hmm. Maybe with a bit of PHP added to the mix?

Posted by Pixy Misa at May 3, 2005 07:31 AM

Dang. I am but an unfrozen caveman blogger and the ways of php seem strange and frightening to me. I don't know the first step in creating the automated blogroll that I want.

Aah, well. I'll just hafta keep greeting them one-by-one.

Posted by Tuning Spork at May 3, 2005 08:06 AM

I think I can see how to do it. Not today, though.
