So I've been meme-ed. That's right. I made up a word, the very thing I have cautioned you all against in the past. Apparently, it's only okay if I do it. What's inconsistent about that?
Anyway, in the great tradition of stuff recently made up on the internet, one of my blog-friends has tagged me in a post as a blogger to read, which I find amazing and gratifying. Plus, it explains the couple of new followers I have who aren't personal friends. Here are the rules:
1) Blogger is nominated to take part
2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog– 1 link for each category.
-- Your most beautiful post
– Your most popular post
– Your most controversial post
– Your most helpful post
– A post whose success surprised you
– A post you feel didn’t got the attention it deserved
– The post that you are most proud of
3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.
4) These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate up to 5 more bloggers
After looking at the word over and over, I want to replace Blogger with Booger or some other such nonsense. Now if only I can figure out how to add a link in here without it actually spelling out the whole web address I'll be cool. Please refer to my most recent post.
single exploratory click, tongue sticking out from the corner of mouth.
Ooh. Turns out it's monkey-simple. Thanks, Blogspot, and sorry, folks, I'll now be bludgeoning you regularly with cleverly-worded links to stuff you may not want.
My most beautiful post: gotta be Welcome to Friday, because it's one where I'm not complaining about anything. Enjoy it. The list deteriorates from here.
My most popular post: bearing in mind that only Jodee, and once my sister, comments, I'll just guess that it's this one. My mom actually commented on this one. Admittedly, not on my blog, so you'll have to take my word for it.
My most controversial post: Does meanest count? If so, it's got to be this one. I'm not sure if it's funny to anyone other than Rebecca, but there it is.
Most helpful. Hmm. How about here, where I act like I'm smart.
The post whose success surprised me must have been the first one Not-Jodee commented on. You're still my bestest blog-friend, Jodee. I'll always love you most.
The post that didn't get the attention it deserved might have been here. Because of my awesome parenting tips. I usually charge over $100 an hour for this stuff, people.
The post I'm proudest of must be the one about the Dad jokes. It still makes me cry. And I know how it ends.
Now for the hard part. I say it's the hard part because I'm relatively new to the blogosphere (I didn't make that one up), so I don't follow all that many other blogs yet, but here are the awesome ones I do follow, so check them out:
You three who don't already, check out Jodee because she makes me laugh out loud every day.
I also love Becky's blog, but don't read it while your kids are around, because you can't be safe from pencil drawings or actual photos of scrota.
Here's a cool cake blog that is completely appropriate for your kids. Especially if they like Starwars Cakes.
And I still laugh out loud when I even think of the Hyperbole and a Half story of how Kenny Loggins ruined Christmas. Please read it at work. Everyone will think you're nuts.
Thanks for reading my inane stuff. I love you guys. So write me some comments. I need validation sometimes.
