Is it wrong that I get all my news from John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Huckleberries Online? John and Stephen are funny and I really enjoy their shows, but my favorite news source is HBO. It's the first place I visit everyday that I go online. I can always count on DFO to keep me up to date on what's happening in our little town. Since I discovered HBO, I have been better able to form an opinion and comment on things that I wouldn't have a clue about otherwise. And I know more about local and national politics than I ever have before. Not to mention the movie, book, and food reviews, great northwest photos, and all around interesting local info.
But, my favorite part of HBO is the people. I only know a few in real life, but I sometimes feel like I know many of them. Katrina, my real life friend, was my inspiration to blog in the first place. Bob makes me laugh with his creative and sarcastic comments. Phil makes me want to homeschool every time I read about his adventures with his son. I am reminded of God's amazing grace when Kendra shares her stories. OrangeTV never lets me down with his restaurant advice. DFO has encouraged me to blog more by sharing my blog with the HBO world. The Stickman has helped me to see the beauty in a stick and where it comes from. And no one has ever made me want to pick up and go to England just to meet someone new like Marmitetoasty.
I love going into the comments section just to see what everyone is thinking and saying on any given day. I am never disappointed. There is always something interesting or educational or funny as can be. And I love visiting the blogs of other North Idaho bloggers. I really never know just what I might find.
So thanks to DFO and the HBO regulars for enlightening me, inspiring me, and making me laugh every day.
