Otie and I host a Happy Hour every Friday. Otie has the Mr Linky at his site (yeah, I let him have control of it, kinda like the remote, you know the guy has to hold it to feel manly).
Don't freak out on me here, it is only Thursday. However since it's a) the last day of the year and b) my birthday and c) my blog, I'm taking the liberty of posting early. Otie will have the linky up eventually, so be patient.
I'm really happy that although I haven't been posting or commenting much the last couple weeks it seems as tho most people have stuck with me. Thanks for that, really. Hopefully once the world gets back to normal I will once again have time to leisurely read all your posts and leave witty comments, as well as write my own intriguing and thought provoking posts. What? I do leave witty comments. I make myself giggle, that's witty, right?
I think I mentioned before that Spud did a post on 39 things to do before she's 40. I think it is a fabulous idea and so I am stealing it. Although I've known for a while that I was going to it, I haven't actually figured out what I want my 39 things to be, so that will have to be another post. Just know that I'm gonna do it damn it. Really.
I'm so happy Julochka started her own 365 in 2010 flickr group. If you want to join contact her and tell her you heard of it thru me. I think it'll be a great way to improve my skills as well as be a motivator for me to actually use my new camera.
It may be hard for you to believe this, but I am one of those people that will just come over unannounced. I know that some people abhor this, but I don't care. I don't care if you're not dressed or if the sink still has breakfast dishes in it. In fact, it's nice to see that people actually *live* in their houses. I know mine usually has dog hair dust dinosaurs in the corners and dirty laundry piles. I figure if you aren't going to like me because I have too much of a life to spend the majority of it cleaning, then that's your problem. However, if I do pop up at your house, I don't expect to be invited inside. Usually I'll only do that if a) I'm stopping by to see if you want to walk the dogs with me or b) dropping off a gifty or c) I am visiting my mother in another city and know where you live but can't remember your phone number and we are on that side of town anyway so we decide to do a drive-by and see if you're home. Luckily Sara is one of those people let will graciously let you in when you arrive...
I got home from my mom's house and found not one but two wonderful gifts waiting for me. Both were actually goodies from winning stuff from other bloggers. Spud sent me a wonderful snowman ornament as well as one of her fabulous post cards, and Iasa sent me this cool little wicker basket with a necklace inside and some chocolate! Thanks so much ladies! I totally heart you both.
I guess that's enough happiness for me today. Plus I have lots of things to do before the big event tonight. Okay, maybe the not-so-big event, but I still have places to go and people to see. Be sure you go by and see Otie and click his linky so that we will all know who is playing.
Oh and by the way, have a wonderful, safe, and Happy New Year!! xoxoxxo
