Santacats and their associated blog subjects get a good plug in the Sunday Age, PC, in an article by Stephanie Trigg about blogging and cancer. Ur in her brakout, blogging up a storm, hier.

(Iz at the end - Blogger did not like long single page URL.)

Genevieve, thanks so much for that link -- I knew Stephanie was writing this but couldn't find it online, didn't have time to drive down to the airport which is the closest place I can be certain will have the Sunday Age on a Sunday, and really wanted to see it.

Stephanie Trigg said...

Thanks for the plug, Genevieve. Actually, PC, the online version is particularly garbled, with italics and some paragraphs in the wrong place (to say nothing of what they did to the Bronti sisters...). I'll send you a proper version...

Pavlov's Cat said...

Yeah, I negotiated that as I read. (Loved the Bronti sisters -- Carlotta, Emilia and Anna? Oh, there's a post in that.) I dunno who they get to key in the online versions, but whoever it is is getting paid too much. My own last appearance in the Age was hijacked by my evil twin Kerry.

Didn't want to bother you with administrivia, but I'd love the correct version if you can send it without bother. Even the garbled version was terrific, though.

Reminds me of a cat I shared a house with years ago who would wee on the fake logs in the gas fire 12 hours before the first winter lighting. Very aromatic

Stephanie, I will visit with virtual compliments soon - but must note too that having read the hard copy, it's clear that someone has been on the Queen's Birthday pop this weekend in the electronic publishing room at Teh Age. Which is a shame as it's a magnificent article.

Swanette alert. Doctor Norman is sitting in for LNL's Farmer Phil this week, who is cleaning up after the flood.

Pav, had to buy a new mobile today cos my trusty 1999 demi-brick finally carked it. The new one ($50, Coles fag counter) was the size of one of those pillow shaped Arnott's date biscuits. Unmisplaceable. Year 10 daughter insisted; "I'll set it up for you, dad". Yes please, say technopoop pop. A few minutes later she runs me through ops till I'm up to speed. "Do you like your screen background?" She had chosen a divine Siamase posing regally atop a cobalt blue coloured cushion.

No choice but to get with the strengh, I guess.

Pavlov's Cat said...

Hah! I'm surprised she didn't put a caption on it. I'M IN UR SIMCARD MESSIN WITH UR COMMS.

Tx for the heads-up re LNL. I usually only listen to the radio when I'm driving, so for Norman I might have to go out and drive aimlessly round the suburbs in the middle of the night with the radio on.

I saw this and thought of you.

Sorry if you now have the screaming heebee beegees.

redcap said...

Awwww, lookutdalittlcyooties.

(I can has cheezburger has much to answer for. Much as I love it, I don't think cats would really talk like that, if they could talk. James Joyce, Thomas Hardy and Charles Dickens, look you out!)

This is the final para of the excellent S.Trigg feature:

"My blog helped me learn part of my cancer lesson, but there sometimes seems a long way yet to travel. Let's just take it five years at a time.

Stephanie Trigg is professor of English literature at the University of Melbourne.
Her favourite blogs

■ Adelaide writer Kerryn Goldsworthy maintains two blogs: Pavlovs Cat is a wonderful all-purpose blog about politics, life and writing (pavlovblog.blogspot.com). Ask the Bronti Sisters is an advice column for budding writers (currerellisacton.blogspot.com).

■ Two medieval blogs: the academic group blog, In the Middle, co-ordinated by Jeffrey Jerome Cohen of George Washington University (jjcohen.blogspot.com) and the hilarious blog of Geoffrey Chaucer, written in Middle English, of course (houseoffame.blogspot.com).

■ Best cancer blog (there are hundreds): As the Tumor Turns (spinningtumor.blogspot.com)."

and we all wish her well.
