Aussie Boys

I'm just back from my Bahamian silliness. Maybe some stories forthcoming there. However, there are two guys much farther South who are currently doing exactly what bloggers should do.

Family first:

My cousin RJ is a former newspapers writer/editor who has moved into the software world. He's currently doing the Sydney and surrounding area on his blog while he;s on a work trip. RJ is one of the people who inspired me to write and is currently doing some great work from the land down under. You can find the whole of his tales at The Unrepentant Texan or check our the introductory post he wrote several days ago: Headed South. Way South.

Now, for the friend:

As you all may well-know, I've developed quite a friendship with a guy named Pauly over the past few years. Pauly is that guy who lives a life you'd kill to live, but will likely end up dead yourself after trying to live it for a while. He's proven himself to be the perfect combination of hedonism and altruism. He's in the Melbourne area for work as well and is chronicling his trip on hiw two biggest blogs, Tao of Poker and Tao of Pauly.

One of the things I failed to mention during my period of Full Disclosure Exile last autumn was that I was about 92% to be in Australia right now myself. In the end, I decided not to go. While I don't necessarily regret the decision right now, there is a part of me that is a little sad about missing out on the opportunity.

So, I'm going to live vicariously through my cousin and buddy for the next few days. You should, too.

Looks like Pauly is giving you a choice. I would go with the thanks. The linkage might be a medically unsound choice.
