What I should be writing about....

...but I'm not, because my connection is so unpredictable--a blog entry with links would take hours to assemble, during most parts of the day. I'm going to try a quick one here, at night, when the connection seems to work better. I'd like to be covering...
  • The petition against a humanitarian "Oscar" for Jerry Lewis (but Andrea Shettle's got it covered, and Shelley Tremain too)
  • Accessibility (or lack thereof) at the Inauguration next week (Ruth Harrigan has a round-up)
  • Peter Dinklage on last week's episode of 30 Rock (which was terrific--Beth Haller has the story, with a photo)
  • Blogger Kristina Chew's departure from Autism Vox, and arrival at Change.org
  • The book I'm reading, April Witch by Majgull Axelsson (a Swedish novel, title character is disabled, living in a longterm nursing facility, lots of first-person observations on independent living, hospital life, being the object of pity, disgust, disbelief, manipulation, etc.)
  • The book I read before this one, Riven Rock by T. C. Boyle (historical novel based on the real lives of Stanley McCormick and Katharine Dexter McCormick; Stanley's bouts of "derangement" were managed by various treatments, and by isolation on an estate in Montecito, California, supported by his family's wealth and monitored by his wife Katharine for decades)
  • New playground in my neighborhood that's almost kinda-sorta accessible (photo to follow), and adventures in commenting at a nearby town's planning council meeting, where the question was "accessible playground or roller hockey?" (They decided, not wanting to disappoint any of the commenters, to have both, against some daunting limitations of space, but at least it's still under discussion.)

Thanks for the link to my blog! But, we're not the only two people blogging the petition campaign: there's a running list of links to relevant blog posts at: http://reunifygally.wordpress.com/bloggers-protesting-pity/

Thanks for the link. Hope your connection gets fixed - and thanks for the book suggestions.

Thanks for guiding me to some great resources on the web.

BTW: My blog, Nuvision for a Nuday, was a finalist in the 2008 Weblog Awards. Although I lost horribly (LOL), I was excited that I was a finalist. I was the only blogger with a significant disability to be in the running. (Out of 48 categories, with 10 blogs in each category...)
I was pleased to get the chance to expose hundreds to disability related issues, primarily my experiences as a blind person. That's the only reason why I keep the blog going. To allow people the chance to see what it is like to not be able to see.

Blessings,
Angie

The word "shanzhai" is very popular in China. It is industry phenomenon of imitation, high quality and low price. Moreover, cell phones are the representative of them.The global financial crisis led to a significant shrinkage of assets for people. "china wholesale" demonstrate the might. most of them would like buy the cheap cell phones now .

man said...

Through google search engine, when you put in "discount cell phones", you will find more than 15,000 pieces of related information. Cell phone china has been concerned in the world. Many international sellers can get a considerable profit by ways of wholesale cell phones from China and switch selling. So it is a very good job on cell phones wholesale in the current financial crisis.
