Meet Superfluous. She’s FIRE. And she’s hot. At her costume party last night, she let me come in even though I didn’t dress up. (I know, I know…lame.) That’s Shannon on the right, all cute in her 70’s garb. This is K. (of K and/or K-Waiting for a Little Vlachster) It says ‘history’ on his shirt because… He had a post-it on his foot…Sarah Palin, a footnote on history. Get it? Brilliant, eh?He was like a walking riddle. No matter how you’re voting, you have to admit that this costume is genius. And now for K’s other half, K.As she says on the K and/or K site, Disclaimer: The following reference to “white trash” has nothing to do with race or economic status. I firmly believe this demographic is a state of mind. I’ve been poor and white (I’m still white), but I’m not trashy–except today! The White Trash Bride. Complete with painted […]

Sunday Suck Ups

October 18, 2008

It’s Sunday Suck Ups time again! Beckyof On top of the world (or at least really far north) wrote a post that any mom can relate to and laugh through. Becky is a gifted writer and speaks her heart and mind with loads of wisdom and humor. You’ll love her if you don’t already. Sarah over at Sarah and the Goon Squad wrote a post about internet information overload. Since we talked about this a bit at our bloggy get-together yesterday, I especially loved this post. It even includes ideas on how to cut back on the addiction! Sarah’s honesty and humor always make her posts a good read. It’s no different with this one, since she admits she has “serious internet issues.” I’m pretty sure most bloggers do! Enjoy, people. And you’re welcome… Thank you for allowing me to pop up in your inbox and for reading my words, silly or serious. […]

Sunday Suck Ups

October 12, 2008

It’s time for me to tell you about some posts I’ve read recently that rocked the blogging party. Here are two (or three) good reads for your bloggy pleasure: Kimberly of Temporary?Insanity wrote a number of great posts this week (as usual), but one particularly struck me. Give it a read (if you haven’t already of course). It was a good reminder for me, as I have a tendency to ramble on either in my nervous chatter, or to talk and talk and talk until I think I’ve been understood. Her post was a reminder that sometimes it’s more beneficial to me (and to others) to simply be the listener. And since I’m talking about Kimberly, I just remembered that she wrote another post over on Ms. Adventures that I have to share too. Why in the world not? It was good! It’s titled Hungover. If that isn’t an attention grabber coming from […]

I’m changing the Sunday Suck Up idea just a little. I decided I’d link to two great POSTS every Sunday, rather than to two great blogs. What’s the difference you ask? I don’t really know exactly. But whatever. (Those of you who don’t know, before September I was highlighting a certain two blogs every Sunday. Now that I’m done taking a month off to host Soap Opera Sunday, I wanted to get back to sucking up.) Maybe I can explain a little better. I could link you to two great blogs, but there are two reasons I’m going to link to two great posts instead. 1. It overwhelms people to think they’re about to discover yet another blog to read when they’re already on the computer most of their lives trying to catch up. So this way, there’s no pressure. You just read one GREAT post and decide for yourself if you’re coming […]

Sunday Suck Ups

August 31, 2008

Another Sunday? How’d that happen? So here I am, all excited to introduce you to another two really, really great blogs. For the first time ever in my whole life, I’m going to get right to the point: Confessions of a Novice You can be sure that each and every post is something great. Elle doesn’t post every day like, I don’t know, say…ME? It’s like she waits for her very best ideas (I’m sure she has millions) and posts something that’s unique, charming, witty and perhaps even powerful. She says she’s a novice at a lot of things. But it appears to me she’s quite good at those things. Elle has a gift for writing. If there were a recipe for blogging, Elle would have all the perfect fresh ingredients, and she’d know exactly how to measure them all out, serving up something unique and tasteful every time! (ah, a blogging analogy- […]

Sunday Suck Ups

August 24, 2008

Here we are, already a week away from the very first Sunday Suck Up. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I explained last week here. In short (which I’m not very good at), I decided to link to some of my favorite blogs on Sundays, just to give a shout out to some great writers in the blogosphere. Because it’s fun. And like Kelly of orange ya glad i didn’t say jello said last week, I gave her “virtual warm fuzzies” when spotlighting her site. And that my friends, is my goal. I am finding it QUITE difficult to choose. I’m so glad Sundays don’t run out, and come once a week. I will suck up NOW: Superfluous; a little something extraSabrina keeps me feeling hip. Because as she chronicles her daily adventures with hilarity and insight, she throws in a little pop culture here and there, keeping a clueless […]

Sunday Suck Ups

August 16, 2008

I have wanted to give a whole lot of linky love a whole lot of times. (Dad and um, Grandma, don’t worry. Linky Love is not naughty. It’s basically where I talk up another blogger and then link to their site…)I currently share the linky love sparingly. I say things like, “so and so gave me this great idea on such and such a blog,” but I have never actually devoted a post to giving shout-outs to fellow bloggers. I maybe haven’t devoted posts to passing on links because I fear that my opinion maybe isn’t all that influential and I’m not too sure that I’ll bring anyone too many new readers. (I mean I don’t even know who most of my readers are, which can drive someone a bit batty, but not many people comment, but it’s not like I’m asking for people to delurk, cause whatever, I’m not that curious about […]
