Happy Blogroll Amnesty Day!

Happy Blogroll Amnesty Day!

Happy Blogroll Amnesty Day! I learned about this blogosphere holiday through the blog of the fabulous Blue Gal. You can read the frightening details of the event at the blog of the holiday's creator, Jon Swift, and also at the blog of the other leading event co-conspirator, Skippy the Bush Kangaroo.

Blue Gal suggests that we should post the link to a few of our favorite blogs, and post them so that others can read about them, become aware of them - and finally blogroll these newer and most recently discovered blogs. Based on Blue Gal's expressed wishes, I have thus gone through a lengthy winnowing process of my own blogroll, and I present the following blogs for your consideration as part of the Blogroll Amnesty celebrations.

Well, you’re not a gentlemen, but you’re certainly a scholar. Thanks for the Nod! I’m humbled.

At Sun Feb 03, 12:29:00 PM, Blogger Steve said...

I look forward to the scientific experiments!
Thanks for the link

At Sun Feb 03, 02:43:00 PM, Blogger Unknown said...

thanks for participating, dr. zaius!

but next time, maybe you could try to not be such an under-achiever in linkage?

At Sun Feb 03, 03:59:00 PM, Blogger Randal Graves said...

Merci pour le lien, but before you operate, can I get nice and wasted first?

At Sun Feb 03, 05:09:00 PM, Blogger ThoughtCriminal said...

Question - does your scientific research include breeding experiments with Nova?

At Sun Feb 03, 06:50:00 PM, Blogger Fran said...

Thank you. I may be available for some experiments if it pays well!

At Sun Feb 03, 09:22:00 PM, Blogger Angry Ballerina said...

Dude, you totally just fed my insomnia for another 8 or so hours.


At Sun Feb 03, 09:34:00 PM, Blogger SamuraiFrog said...

Why, thank you for the link!

At Sun Feb 03, 11:36:00 PM, Blogger John J. said...

Thanks for the plug doctor.

I better get that rocket out of the forbidden zone so i can escape the apeocolypse

At Mon Feb 04, 04:43:00 AM, Blogger pissed off patricia said...

As I said over at Fran's, having been away for a week, this is all new to me.

At Mon Feb 04, 09:32:00 AM, Blogger Some Guy said...

Thanks, Dr.! I appreciate your pledge as I have an aversion to anal probes.

At Mon Feb 04, 09:37:00 AM, Blogger GETkristiLOVE said...

Thanks for your attention to my Box.

At Mon Feb 04, 09:56:00 AM, Blogger BAC said...

Dr. Z ... I am so grateful to be spared. Needles make me a bit queazy.


At Mon Feb 04, 11:36:00 AM, Blogger Shay said...

Fantastic! This Blog Amnesty Day was a great idea! ^_^

At Mon Feb 04, 01:38:00 PM, Blogger Life As I Know It Now said...

we do not deserve, as a species, to be spared. thank you for continuing to bring to us your simian goodness!

At Mon Feb 04, 02:17:00 PM, Blogger Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Hey thanks for that pledge, sort of.

At Mon Feb 04, 02:31:00 PM, Blogger Dr. Zaius said...

Swinebread: Really? Takes one to know one!

Pidomon: Be patient. There is plenty of time for all that.

Skippy: Do I note a hint of sarcasm in your voice? I narrowed it down as much as I could.

Randal Graves: That would actually be good idea. Might I join you?

ThoughtCriminal: No. lobotomies and taxadermy, mostly.

FranIAm: Hmm... We will have to negotiate a fee.

Angry Ballerina: So glad to hear from you! It's been a while.

SamuraiFrog: But of course!

John J.: No problemo!

Distributorcap: Too late. If your rocket is in the Forbidden Zone, then the Apeocolypse has already taken place. If you follow Hasslein's curve on the way back, you could sneak in before it happens.

Pissed Off Patricia: No time like the present to catch up!

Chris: None of that! That is what Dr. Monkerstein likes to do. We do lobotomies and taxadermy, mostly.

GETkristiLOVE: You should pay attention to your scores! ;o)

BAC: Me too! Unless I am inflicting them, of course.

Shay: Jon Swift is the culprit.

Liberality: as a species humans do not deserve to be spared, nut I have found many fine specimans like yourself that deserve special consideration.

At Mon Feb 04, 03:38:00 PM, Blogger Dean Wormer said...

I'm honored to make the cut. Unless it's a briss. In that case I'm scared.

A link? How kind and generous - Now, where is my rolodex?
I must make a note of this oncoming 'apeocolypse' so that some delicious chocolate-banana muffins can be prepared.


At Mon Feb 04, 10:00:00 PM, Blogger Freida Bee said...

Thank you for the linky love, dear doctor.

At Tue Feb 05, 11:17:00 AM, Blogger Dr. Zaius said...

Dean Wormer: Jeepers! I would be scared too!

darkblack: Delicious chocolate-banana muffins? Oooh, I'll ave two please!

Freida Bee: As you might of guessed, despite the instructions of the event promoters, I found that I did not have the heart to winnow down my blogroll one jot. Everybody on my blogroll was represented.

At Tue Feb 05, 12:27:00 PM, Blogger Jay Allbritton said...

Nice list, Doc. Glad to be on it, glad to have it. I'll be going through these sites for weeks! Great work.

At Tue Feb 05, 11:03:00 PM, Blogger Mauigirl said...

wow, exploring all those blogs is going to take me weeks!

At Wed Feb 06, 01:36:00 PM, Blogger Claire said...

Thank you for including me, Dr. Z! I have been remiss, but will now immediately add you to my blogroll (in the hopes of maintaining my "spared for scientific experiments" status)

At Thu Feb 07, 06:52:00 PM, Blogger Batocchio said...

Haha. Thanks!

By the way, you'll be getting added to my blogroll as soon as I have my new template up and running, and assuming I get Blogrolling installed. If not, I'll just be doing it the old-fashioned way, tinkering with html in my template. I've been holding off until I know for a fact that I'm going to have success with my endeavors -- always a risky assumption with technology. :lol:
