VACATION....I'll be on vacation for the next few days, but as usual I have a couple of guest bloggers lined up to keep everyone entertained.

First up is Roxanne Cooper, of Rox Populi, who's in Austin this weekend for SXSW, a music, media, and film festival. I'm not sure if she'll be blogging about SXSW or about other things as well, but it'll be good regardless.

Our second guest blogger, coaxed out of retirement for a brief return engagement, is the mysterious Ogged of Unfogged. He will be blogging about Swedish swimming instructors and related topics from his usual secret undisclosed location.

In addition, the staff of Washington Monthly might be popping in with a few posts as well.

Obviously the tone is going to be a wee bit different here for the next few days, but different is good. Right? I'll be back on Tuesday. See you then.

Right, let's get straight in on the Swedish swimming instructors.

May be instead of cat blogging we can have Friday afternoon Swedish Female Swimming Instructor blogging.

That will be make the real difference.

Have a good vacation. Avoid shooting someone on the face unless that someone signs a pre-shooting agreement to publicly apologize to you after recovering from the injury.

Oh, I might if you're good. But I'm only going to interactive. Propeller-heads, activate!

Kevin has set some rather high expectations for Ogged's Swedish swim instructor blogging, I wonder if he can meet them.

Posted by: washerdreyer on March 10, 2006 at 2:00 AM | PERMALINK

Have fun Kevin. Hopefully you're getting a ski weekend in while there is still time!

We need a single-payer system for getting the services of Swedish swim instructors, like they have in, um, Sweden. My HMO won't pay for any. Bastards.

Posted by: craigie on March 10, 2006 at 2:03 AM | PERMALINK

Come down to San Diego. HMO won't pay here either, but the instructors are as close to Swedish as you can get in USA.

Isn't an undisclosed location by definition secret?

Posted by: Joel Rubinstein on March 10, 2006 at 3:31 AM | PERMALINK

Oh, great, I finally wean myself off Unfogged and Ogged dogs me down! (grin)

Seriously, I know he'll do a great job. Hopefully some of his regular commenters will follow him because they are generally adult and thoughtful.

Unfortunately your taste in guest bloggers leaves something to be desired. In all honesty they tend to completely suck.

Posted by: Tlaloc on March 10, 2006 at 1:02 PM | PERMALINK

I'm not a regular reader but, for what it's worth, props to you and to your brave guest bloggers. A lot of MSM pundits think blogging is closed loop - an "I only read things that reinforce my existing opinion" phenomenon. Way to show 'em.
