TAG! You're it! (it's ALL ABOUT ME)

Wow! I have been tagged by the beautiful and knocked up Tara. 5 reasons why I blog huh??

Reason the first:

I am an attention whore. No really. I know some of you will be shocked and dismayed at this startling revelation, but tis true. I like people knowing certain things. And lavish praise, oh yes LAVISH PRAISE!

Reason the second:

Its a great way to document my knitting skillz and what minutiae in my life I am currently obsessed with. You may ask why I don't have a paper journal? I find I am much funnier and less waaaah waaaaaah waaaaaah when I know other people are going to read it. I tried to keep a proper journal once, but when I went back and read it I was so mortified at myself I ripped it up. Public shame is a good motivator for me NOT to take myself too seriously. Seriously.

Reason C:

I too can avoid the mass email thingies. I like the family/friend units being able to catch up on stuff I would normally forget to tell them and know we still think about them. I LOVE they can see a slice of our lives. AND SOME PEOPLE WHO SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS SHOULD START A BLOG SOON TOO OK???

Number 4:

I enjoy inflicting random pictures of things I am OCD about on you all. Cupcakes and kissing llamas? Coffee and balls of yarn? How else will you know what to buy me for gifts? Where else would you be able to access my amazon wishlist?

Finally V:

Now I think I want to tag........... Michelle. You ARE ON BABE!!!

Ok now for the brass tacks: We have been having a little tornado of family stuff going on which is why I haven't updated re: Chris' sweater. But rest assured it is done. He has worn it, and I will post photos ASAP of him in his best Sears Catalogue poses in it. He looks MIGHTY SPIFFY if I do say so myself. Of course I am VERY biased. :)

In Other News:

Da Vinci Gingerbread syrup is a god among syrups. Don't believe me? Come on over and I'll make you a latte or cappuccino that will prove me right. See mine today? Look up there silly, its at the top o the page.
Happy weekend all... I do love you!

That's a right purty latte you got there, li'l lady. Can't wait to see the sweater!

I totally relate to your reasons for blogging. Hope the tornado is short lived and nothing too devastating. Looking forward to some sweater pics.

Wow- It's like you read my paper journal and posted it on your blog... if I had a paper journal to read, that is! I echo the blogging sentiments perfectly. And now I shall shower you with lavish praise.

Brittany said...

I love this blog, and I can totally relate too!

You are too funny! TOtally agree with you on your reasons. I've torn up a many of paper thoughts and started five pages of a journal and leave it on a shelf and then buy a new one and do the same thing.

Wish I could you prove you right on your latte theory. Miss you!:(
