So I guess I'm part of this 2010 Ultimate Blog Party. I guess I should have gotten dressed up or something, but had a hard week and am too lazy to do so. I've been meaning to fix up my blog and make it look like someone put some effort into it, but I just haven't had the time. Until then, please forgive my messy blog-home.
For those of you who are new to my world, here's some info about me:
I started blogging in November 2006. I worked at a crappy admin job where I had a TON of free time and it seemed like a good thing to do. Sometimes I think I'm just wasting my time...sometimes I think I am the funniest human alive and as such, it's my obligation to share my humor with the world. And sometimes, I just like to share what I know. Lately, I've started sharing my emails from when we lived in Korea for a year-it's fun to look back.
I've got a wonderful teenager-Andrew-who gives me good fodder for the blog. He's 17 now, but he's still my sweet little punkin-head (he loooooooves to be called that).
When I first started the blog, I thought it would be fun to change the title on my blog every month or so. At some point, I realized that people won't necessarily be able to tell everyone they know about me if I didn't have a consistent name...brilliant learning lesson. So at some point I had written a few serious articles and I happened to have the title It's Serious This Time as my title and someone linked to my page and this big giant lightbulb went off above my head (you might have seen it-unless you live in Alaska where you are constantly blinded by light) and I realized that I couldn't be famous if nobody knew a consistent blog title for me. And that's the magic behind the title. You can tell I put a LOT of thought into it.
I actually don't have a twitter account yet because I can't think of a good name and I don't want to make the same mistake twice. No joke-there's too much pressure in picking a name nowadays.
Anyway, here's some stories for you (I'm sure you will click on every single blessed one. I just mentioned how busy I was, so don't let me feel like my time was wasted here, k? thanks):
Sometimes I like to be serious.
I'm just really starting to enjoy cooking.
I'm a borderline crazy cat lady.
I read a lot. And I'd like to read much, much more but haven't figured out how to stop the space-time continuum.
I like to volunteer. A lot. I like to tell you that you should too.
I used to play bingo often, and won a fat jackpot one time and decided I wasn't going to get to do that often so now I rarely play. (but I want to!)
And I'm happy hosting a couple of giveaways each month too.
That's about it-me in 8,000 words or less (though it felt like a lot more didn't it?).
Please say hello - I try to visit every blogger who leaves a comment and love hearing from new people.
Welcome - and Happy Blog Party everyone!!!
Hugs and kisses!
