Of Bodices and Brains

In a bourbon-soaked haze last week, I encouraged my good friend Faith to launch her excellent new blog and even supplied the title. Why Faith actually decided to use the name I came up with I’m not certain but I assure you her judgement is otherwise sound. How Faith finds time to ruminate with such profundity between excising the racy bits from romance novels is itself something of a mystery. Perhaps all this cutting of bodice rippers is good for the mind…

Speaking of which, it was during the same bout of bourbon-glazed gluggery that I met Faith’s charming and delightful housemate, Kate. Kate already had a blog, but it was shuttered to the world and you had to be a very special person, or an inebriated lout she’d never met before, to gain access. This was all until a certain self-proclaimed sporadic blogger bayed at the gates of Kate’s blog, convincing her to take down the shutters. Kate is a student of neuroscience, so you know she’s wicked smart.  Her blog is devoted to addressing scientific issues in a global context, which apparently has something to do with wearing a bandanna and baking cookies. But perhaps I’ve missed something.

    Yes, good for the mind, but bad for the imagination. One can only read so many romances before it begins to take a toll on one’s sense of reality. Tends to lead one to fantasi….oh….sorry….lost my train of thought, there was a farm hand and a barn, and I suppose I’d better not go into the rest (must remember that this is a “family program”). At any rate, thanks very much for the shout-out. I suppose it’s the height of hubris to make my first commentary contribution to this esteemed blog on a post related to me, but I did promise to finally de-lurk and add my profound ruminations to your blogging endeavors. Or, in this case, some files from “the naughty bits.”

    why’s everyone gotta be hating? i was just protecting my now-open scientific heart.

    so some scientists bake cookies. i’m working on a more science-appropriate picture here. perhaps a rat’s mug would do.

    p.s. well-done on the title of that one. faith, i’m feeling a new romance-novel title here…
