So listen to my little rhyme...
No, not really. Back in college I wrote that special song for my future-hubby's roommate to use during a Latin project. You're super impressed, aren't you? I can see it in your face! Anyway, I've been torturing my actual kids by saying that at least once an hour for the past four days. Hoping I can pass on the earworm and save us all the agony of hearing me holler it even a single time in the future.
So. Sorry. Where was I? Ah, yes....Jackie at Blueberries for Me! She tagged me in this snazzy meme called 7 links. Now, I'm not super sure what the heck a meme is, but basically I think I'm supposed to answer the questions with links from my blog. I'm a detective like that. Again, be impressed.
Anyway, my poor darling husband is ill today and the kids are running around like lunatics and so instead of writing a post about that and boring you all to tears, I'll regale you with....
Wait. This might bore you to tears, too. Consider yourself warned!
Most Beautiful Post
Poetry is beautiful, right? Dogs are beautiful, right? Here ya go. You can thank me later.
Most popular post
Okay, I just checked and apparently my instructions for finding a house on the internet are the most popular thing I've ever written on here. I just reread it. Pretty entertaining if I do say so myself! But, until very recently, the most read post of all time was Pro-Life Means Pro-Child wherein I urge folks who claim to be pro life to be kind to families with children, especially, not except, when they are at church.
Most Controversial Post
Sigh. I do not enjoy conflict. It gives me hives. It makes my heart beat in my toes. I wrote a silly post that took me 11 minutes to write about how irritating Disney fairy tales are to me. And did I proof read and think about it and choose just the right words and think that anyone would have anything to say about it? No. Did I make sure to specify Disney in the post? Oh no. No sirree. Just wrote "fairy tales". Then I published and went to bed. #Firestormoverfairytalesohmygod! Blech. Anyway. You can look for it if you want, but I'm not really proud of it, and again...controversy makes me feel like I'm going to lose my lunch. And I do not like losing things!
Most Helpful Post
As much as I like being helpful in real life, it seems that my blog is not really a place for helpful information. Perhaps the suggestions for choosing a house on line will be helpful to some. Some wacky folk as crazy as us. BUT, a helpful post with broader appeal is probably the one where I tell you how NOT to make cookies. 'Cause everyone likes cookies, right? And if you make them like I did, you will be sorry. So very, very sorry....
Post whose success surprised you
Is there a way to link every single thing I've ever written right here? 'Cause seriously guys, I am surprised and thankful and excited and in the twilight zone every day that all of you take time out of your days to hang out with me over here in bloggy land. But if I have to pick one, I guess it would be the one about my misadventures at Wal-Mart wherein I potentially acquired a real life stalker, which is so much LESS cool than virtual stalkers. Maybe I should tell more stories?
A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
Yeah, I don't really like the word "deserved". It's like "fair" and "worth". No one can really say what's fair and what isn't. Things are only worth what others are willing to give for them. Whatever I receive is absolutely what I deserve. So instead I will say that if you sign up to receive daily deals from giggle.com by clicking on that link in the top left of my sidebar, you'll get a coupon worth $10 right to your inbox. I think that's a fair deal that you deserve, don't you???
The Post You are the Most Proud of
I don't know about this one, either! Ugh! Jackie, why you gotta do me like that? Makes me feel all uncomfortable and stuff! Anyway, 'cause this is my blog and I do what I want, I'll just give you my Holy Thursday post. 'Cause none of this would be happening if it weren't for that day 12 years ago...
Now it's time to tag some of my friendy-friends! Now friendy-friends, Please do not feel obligated to play along. I will not come to your house with a flaming bag of dog poo or anything if you read this and are all, like, "Devil woman....I got important stuff to talk about! Sheesh." But let it be known that I think you're awesome and more people should read more of your writing.
Lucy (not her real name) of Lucy the Valiant
Steph of Baca Ohana
Mary Kate of Why, yes, I AM crazy. Thank you for asking!
Nina of The Adventures of Artsy Nina
Grace of Camp Patton
Cari of Clan Donaldson
Bernie of One Mixed Bag
If you want to play and I didn't tag you, feel free to claim that I did and I will happily tag you retroactively because I am so generous like that.
And now for a totally unrelated photo because I have vowed to never do a post without at least one picture...
