It has been an insanely crazy busy week. For those of our beloved blogs that we’ve been neglecting, we apologize! We did a whole bunch of reading all at once but didn’t have it left in us to comment as much as usual. #1 is still going to be working all weekend because there’s a stupid service grant report due and she didn’t even get the data until earlier this week. But hey, summer salary, right?
Let’s see if we even sent each other any links at all… we must have, right?
Minx had an intriguing discussion about how when female slate columnists want to do something trollish and stupid, they put it in the XX bin, but when male columnists do the same, they put it on the main site.

What is a Miley-style blog? Stirrup Queens explains here in this excellent post. Do you have a Miley Cyrus style blog or an Adele, or something else entirely? (And what are we?)
Oh, and speaking of Miley Cyrus… CNN asks why we’re speaking of Miley Cyrus when Robin Thicke should be taking equal, if not more, blame. Honestly I didn’t even know Robin Thicke was involved until I saw this headline! (I get all my celebrity news these days by reading headlines and not actually clicking on the links.)
