Goodie, Goodie, Gumdrops - Geeelicious

There are 62 G blogs. Someone requested that I give a heads up on the percentage of male to female bloggers. It looks like about 10% of the G bloggers are male... 3% of them I would guess are male... but they could also be aliens... I think it would be safe to say that 85% or more of the G bloggers are women. The way we like to talk... it doesn't surprise me. It takes me at least an hour to tell my husband about my day. And then we we go to talk about his:

I ask him: "How was your day?"
He replies: "Ok."
And that pretty much sums it up.

Ok, the random (and approximate) results for the G's.
20% Mom blogs
15% Are OUT!
1% had several recent posts about the weather
5% are blogs by people that are obviously smarter than me. (The words may be English, but yeah, I have no idea what you are talking about.)
6.5% of G's use the word Geek
5% are artsy fartsy (you know who you are)
11% include the name Girl in the title
1% are about gardening
6.5% seem to just be about politics... but that just could have been with elections and nablo they've not had anything to talk about but politics for the last week.
4% (at least) are students

Gab Lab "Doing it for the Mutes" starts off our G list and gab is correct... this lady has no shortage of words to share :) I may have to keep an eye on the family blog of Gav Menagerie. She threatened to blog about the lint in her lint filter if she gets blogging crazy. We simply can't let that happen! We must unite: BALB!!! Bloggers against Laundry Blogging!

The Geezohpete really know how to drag... er celebrate a topic, their blogibirthaverse... and seriously add in the linkage. I enjoyed the post on Hustler (political, not naughty) from the 31st. Although, I did skip hitting all those links in the other posts.

Ok, if the best thing about Geek Inside's day was sticking her hand in a toilet full of diarrhea to rescue a beanie baby - she must win the crappy day award. Course... I would have seriously considered flushing it and then donned the yellow gloves and double bagged it right out to the street.
Gipsy's Musings has a neat layout and I like the blog name. I like the Egyptian style. I had no idea what she was talking about regaring her SCA friends though. Gizo has some funny little cartoons.
I liked Grace Notes and wanted to comment... but Wordpress was making me register and I get tired of registering and entering captcha codes to make a comment... so I just scooted along! A nice blog with lovely pictures and some thought-provoking posts is The Grand.

I got distracted on Grumppopotamus by her link to Mother's Pie Survey on women who blog.

:) I think you were one of the few guys who identified in the profile or the about that said they were a guy. I believe I read your about. I'm sorry I don't remember all of it, but I remember thinking you had a very interesting name and that you seemed to have a very good outlook on the divorce (or separation) with your X and that you've got some kids :)

Hi! I'm Gabby from the Gab Lab. Saw a bunch of people came over from your blog so I thought I'd check it out. I love the idea of finding all the G blogs! Awesome.

Ooh goodie! I got a mention! Thank you. I'm sorry about the registering thingie and what-not. Funny, I didn't even realise people I don't know would want to leave comments...whoopsie!

And they say you don't get awards for being a mom - they're wrong!

I knew my ability to rescue and take charge would do me good someday.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

The "geezohpete" has a lot of good posts that I can't help re-sharing with the world!

Thank you for highlighting us (one girl - me, and one boy - my co-blogger who never seems to write much anymore)! We write to serve!

This is so very late (I totally suck), but I wanted to thank you for the lovely mention in the "A" reviews you did. Also, I am in awe of your undertaking...I am barely able to do the daily posting thing. It's nice having a few pre-screened, for my comfort and convenience.

I'm nothing if not lazy. So I'll be checking your posts daily...

Whoops! A P.S. I meant to say that you're actually registered so all you would have to do is login to comment and as far as I know there's no captcha to comment...

I also wanted to say that this whole idea of alphabetically checking through NaBloPoMo participants is a fab idea :)

No laundry blogs, I promise! Thanks for keeping me on the path to blog righteousness!

Love your reviews - thanks for stopping by.

Thanks so much for the review! With my SCA-stuff, I didn't expect it to make much sense for those not in that group, but I had to vent, and it got my post for yesterday out of the way. :)

Well, crap! I was just about to blog about the laundry.

Thanks for popping in earlier, Rashenbo. This was a fun read. :)

Wow. Thanks for your kind words about The Grand. It made me giddy all night! :)

My husband and I had to laugh at your description of sharing days: that's us too!
