So begins the two day love fest... In her honor, I include this
First off I should mention that my head is cloudy as I have a cold that has now spread into my chest. I'm feeling like I got run over by a truck. Not a Mac truck, just a small pick up. My congested head has left my brain fuzzy and I seriously should be banned from commenting on other people's sites when I am feeling like this.
I did my second Thursday Thirteen yesterday and was astounded by the number of new visitors checking out my digs. I like choosing a funky banner and doing up a list but something about the TT leaves a sour aftertaste. I kind of feel like a misunderstood pop star. I'm much more than my lists. Come on back and discover what I'm about. I wonder how many Thursday thirteeners are just surfering through the others to skim the lists so that they can add their name to Mister Linky's brilliant widget wizard. C'est la vie. At least I had a little fun, discovered some wonderful blogs and maybe I will get something from that list on Sunday. Fingers crossed.
However the absolutely coolest thing happened because of that post. Out of the complete goodness of her heart, lildb offered up her copy of Long Way Down by Nick Hornby. How incredibly sweet is she? I sincerely thank you so much! That is above and beyond. You rock my blog world. Besides having a heart of gold, she is smart and funny so please head on over to pay her a visit.
Today I'm thinking about Sandra as she is celebrating women at a major gala event that she organized. How cool is that? When do these amazing women, who happen to be moms, who also happen to have a blog, find the time? This new circle of friends are only a click away. They keep me going with their inspirational, heartfelt and often witty words.
I will continue on with these thoughts tomorrow. It's not too late for you to show your love. Go visit Her Bad Mother because she was struck with the most luminous idea and wants you to share your thoughts too.
A final note to the fine people at Apple: It seems that the last remaining consumers to fall under your spell are visiting my site. They, along with myself, are lacking the magic of an iPod. It would be an unsurpassed allocation of your marketing budget to advertise on my site. I promise to use the money you pay me to run out and buy my very own iPod.
of Strawberry and her Stego Tat.
**Edited to clarify that I meant no disrespect to anyone who visits my site. I only feel that my silly list didn't deserve the attention that it got. But I'll take it. So thanks if you did comment! If you're looking to share something to a larger audience, I highly recommend forming your thoughts into a list and joining in on the fun!
