If you check out our sidebar, you’ll notice many links to other blogs that we follow. Unfortunately, since we’ve been on the road, we haven’t been able to be as frequent of readers and commenters as we would like to be, but we do check in when we can. One blog I always love to check out is Asian Ramblings, primarily because blog owner Stevo, who you have probably seen leaving comments here, is an awesome photographer. He´s so amazing that he actually inspires in me an interest in China, which as I once wrote right here on this blog is one of the places I was at one point least interested in visiting. Obviously, I am not the only one who thinks Asian Ramblings is awesome, as this blog is a finalist in the 2009 Bloggies in the category of Best Asian Weblog. He’s totally deserving of this honor, so I want to encourage all of my readers to first go check out his blog and then second to go to the 2009 Bloggies page and vote for him!
And because I know you all need more ways to waste time online, while you’re there, check out some of the other finalists in the various categories and you’ll find lots of good reading material. The Pioneer Woman was a daily read of mine back when I was in the working world, and Camels & Chocolate always makes me jealous as the woman who writes it is younger than me and has an awesome freelance travel writing career. She also tells hilarious stories, so I can’t hate her too much.

Alright you guys have to check this out. Sammy the Owl (apparently that’s Rice’s mascot) got ejected from last nights game against Tulane.
By the way, the Owls lost on a buzzer beater after they were kicking butt for most of the game. I know you guys are heartbroken!
Apparently commenting isn’t working so you may get 2 messages about Sammy the Owl. Don’t worry, its so worth it!
Interesting, no messages about Sammy the Owl. So let me try again.
Alright, that’s weird. Anyway, click on my name and it’ll take you to a Youtube video of Sammy the Owl being ejected from last night’s Rice basketball game. The Owls went on to lose on a buzzer beater despite kicking butt for most of the game. I’m not sure what’s up with the commenting.
Greg, We turned to this as it was ending. They talked about all the mayhem at the end. Do you know what else happened?
There was a missed back-end of the one-and-one by Rice to leave the game tied with a few seconds to go. Tulane went the length of the court and scored a layup to win at the buzzer after being down something like 19 at one point.
Here’s video of Sammy’s ejection:
Oh Theresa, you’re incredibly sweet! Thanks for the shoutout, and I’m glad to have your blog on my reader now, too–I can’t get enough of hearing about other people’s globetrotting, as well!
Sorry Greg, wordpress thought you were a spambot. I approved it, and we got the link. Looks amazing! Always nice to hear about Rice being relevant in the sports world, even if for dubious reasons.
Thanks for the shout-out and too-kind words. I hope your travels are going well.
Oh you know not what you do. You see, I took your recommendations and clicked on those innocent looking blog links you recommended, and promptly lost an entire afternoon reading Pioneer Woman’s “Black Heels to Tractor Wheels”. It was good. But if someone asks me why I billed a .2 hrs for last Thursday afternoon, I’m giving them your name. Hope you’re enjoying the Galapagos!
