Of the blogs you read/have on your blogroll...
Who do you know in real life & how?
Tim Burke--teaches at a nearby school; has worked with Mr. Geeky; officially met him at a party at his house.
librarygrrrrl--works at same college as Tim; officially met her through the a reading group
Think Thunk/Perpetual Off Night--same as librarygrrrrrl, but met him at some Blackboard meetings when I first started working at my institution
Atrios of Eschaton--used to work at my institution and talked to him on the phone in that capacity, just met him for the first time a couple of months ago through mutual friends.
One of the Unfogged guys--to protect his identity, I won't say how I know him.
What five blogs do you usually not go a day without checking?
Honestly, pretty much everything in the Academic list. But if I have to pick five . . .
Profgrrrrl, Cul de Sac, Bitch, Ph.D., Pharyngula, Scrivener, Pilgrim/Heretic, jo(e), Phantom Scribbler
I couldn't do it--really, I feel deprived if I haven't checked on every single one. I read brina and Rana every day, oh heck--really the whole academic blogroll.
