I don't know how welcome she is to get a massive influx of readership, but one of my best friends from elementary school days (when I was of but a wee lass of 5 we were in Kindergarten together) has a blog. It is mostly about her baby that she has (which still blows me away, because we were really good friends through about third grade before we were seperated by a move and part of me still imagines her and her sister as we were back then) and I mainly posted this post for my family's benefit, but you can benefit too. She just started blogging so it seems. Go wish her well. She's one of the coolest people I know.
And I'm a definite judge on the coolness factor.
