Red Marker Blogathon -- The End

RMB ends today.

Some last minute entries came scooting in:

Shub made a list of things which get her goat.

The Footloose Doll makes her own helter-skelter list

And at the very end, an endearing post from Cee on her older daughter S learning to speak Hindi in a non-Hindi atmosphere.

Thank you, everybody, for your participation. Over 50 posts, a dozen or so links -- wow, you guys really know how to make a blogathon go.

I know I didn't promise any prizes... But it would really make my day if you guys would take the time for a coffee and some chocolate cake for yourselves some time this week. Think of it as an extended virtual RMB party. :)

I made a cinnamon chocolate bundt last night and Vicky made me some coffee this morning. You can see me reflected in the face of the clock!

Listen, you're tagged in the 'My Sins against Gender stereotypes'

Sue said...

Starry -- Thanks for the tag. :) Enjoy your cake!

Will Chai and cake, instead of coffee and cake, do? :)

Thinking Cramps said...

arrree, how could we not cover the word Lingerie (said LINGER- Y by most people instead of Lonjary). yesterday I used the Red marker on someone in office and he was repeating this word like 10 times to himself !!!

Sue said...

Itchy -- Next round! :)

Ashes -- Thanks. The the link to the cake recipe is on another post, I think.

Richa said...

Well.. I really don't like either coffee or chocolate cake. can I substitute it with a peanut butter ice cream and some coke?

Sue said...

Richa -- Sure, why not. *toasts Richa with a coconut macaroon*

I enjoyed following the RMB posts too :)

I even thought of submitting, 'Every blogger should mind their language.' but wasn't sure it qualified because it wasn't as much about grammar as gender :)

The cake looks great :)

Sue said...

IHM -- Hey, I wish you'd told me. Another blogger submitted a post that was more about gender politics in language but RMB is about language, not grammar, so anything goes.

I read the post and wished I could have it, to be honest. Silly us. :)
