This blog needs your help

So this blog has been pretty bland lately.

I don't know what it is. I haven't run out of things to blog about. E.g. Some excerpts from this week's mental notes: Aunt and Annie Leibowitz connection, the pronunciation of "biennale", the cute cat from the coffeeshop at lunch yesterday, the effect of Terz's waking up routine on my routine every Thursday, and so on.

But there's something about getting round to the blogging itself that is eluding me (although taking gratuitous cute pictures of Ink is no problem).

So I'm going to take a leaf out of the Whatever by John Scalzi and run a little thing he calls Reader Request Week: you tell me what you would like to hear me chatter on about, and I'll pick some of them to write about. I'm not going to promise to write about all of them --- hello, I do have a day job and freelance work and a husband and a cat who's currently kissing my face for attention. I will certainly endeavour to write about the more interesting requests and, if time and decency permits, to comment on why I'm not responding to other suggestions.

Leave your requests in the comments or you can email me (see the sidebar on the right for contact details). Requests and comments from anonymous sources will, as always, be looked at somewhat askance, although that is not to say that I will ignore them altogether.

In parting, here's a little motivation for you (plus I get to scratch at least one item off the aforementioned mental notes):

Snoozing cat

TaLieSin's comment moved here, after I thwapped Blogger commenting into behaving as it should:

1. Watch 'V for Vendetta' and comment on what you think of it, particularly the portrayal of a particular brand of "Western Totalitarianism" and its social control.

2. Do something on good food places in Singapore so I'll have more ideas on where to hit when I return in July. I've forgotten most of my local geography in this respect, unfortunately!

3. Write something on pet-keeping and paternalism, in response to the question of "are the relevant healthcare authorities doing a good job, or being too intrusively interventionist?"

That's all the suggestions that I can offer at present - sorry if none of them prove feasible!

So here's what I think...

- Read a good book and share it with us

- Talk about the Economist's new idea of "Soft Paternalism"

- Take us on a trip through your music/book/movie/stamp collection

- Feed the birds, tupence a bag (nevermind, wrong suggestion)

- Give us a walkthrough on the basic concepts of Quantam Mechanics

Haha, who? The husband or the cat?

Too braindead to read anything intellectual now so you're off the hook. =)

I like the "feed the birds, tuppence a bag" suggestion. You have to watch Mary Poppins in London West End first, though. =P
