I was digging through this month’s MxMo (Lots of good posts this month!) to see if I could find any bloggers to add to my Blogbarcrawl that both seemed interesting and worked behind bars.
I found one that I had already been looking at, LUPEC Boston, who wrote this month about something I can’t get here: Creme de Violette. But what caught my eye was one of their categories: Broads, with such topics as MIT’s new president, Susan Hockfield, and a cocktail to commemorate her hiring. (I won’t hold it against them that the
Lady Hopkins uses Southern Comfort!) They have more than 20 posts on Broads, and while I suspect their politics and mine don’t meet in too many places, we both obviously have a similar respect for how powerful and positive a word Broad can be! I could easily see one or more of them having that bumper sticker that says: Well-Behaved Women Never Made History! I hate that bumpersticker. It’s only partially true (e.g. I doubt Susan Hockfield is ill-behaved), and it is just as true to say that well-behaved men never made history either!
I checked out the co-bloggers’ bio pages. They mostly do not say much about themselves, but at least one, Misty Kalkofen (which nom-de-blog she employs, I can’t figure out!) tends bar! Look for the Green Street Grill pin on the Pegu Blog Blogbarcrawl™, and go buy some cocktails invented by ladies from her. Tell her the Pegu Blog sent you.
