We've gathered here in this little piece of blogosphere, all scrunched up together, to thank you. Yes, that means YOU. Don't look over your shoulder! I'm not talking to Larry (He's no stud). I'm talking to you, your beautiful self. Thank you for following me and my weirdness and my blind dates from hell and my fantasy ventures and my sorrowful expressions and these annoying run-on sentences that - fortunately - I don't spew out very often.
Thanks to the gal who did it for me this time! She is a very lovely lady with a precious baby, Isis, and a handsome hubby. I'm talking about none other than Cameron, my follower #200. Cameron is en route to becoming a teacher, and her blog is quite enjoyable. See ingenuemom.
I also thank the fabulous Trish. Trish was the last gal to do it for me. Don't get all sweaty now. I'm just saying that Trish was my 100th follower several months ago. She and her delightful husband, Matt, have been dancing to Lady Gaga's telephone song ever since I posted a silly military rendition. They switched to break dancing last week in honor of my birthday. I love them for it! Trish's blog is all things wonderful, Southern, spunky, and warm. (Trish tagged me too, but this sincere praise substitutes for my responses to the tag. Ssh.)
Next, there's my gal, the Bumpkin. Bumpkin swung by, and that's when the fun really began! Bumpkin's blog is like a quick intraveneous dose of world class chocolate. Bumpkin (Lisa) and her husband (John) are true local heroes. They are on the front lines of the oil "spill," and they continue to rescue turtles and sea life. I'm getting goosebumps just writing this. Check out her blog. She keeps us posted on the realities of this tragedy better than all of the forms of media combined. Plus, her blog is fun, meaningful, and filled with beauty.
Another lovely lady I want to acknowledge is Lydia. Lydia recently awarded me a Versatile blogger award. She's feisty, honest, and truly hilarious.
Behind a bunch of good women, there's gotta be at least 1 good man. Right? (He's checking out the view.) Actually, John is a very sincere, sweet man. I really respect his "Adult Content" blog that is also high quality. I applaud John's openness about some of life's most challenging issues, and doing so under his real name.
Sorry if I didn't mention you. I thank and love you too. It's just that I have to get up in 6 hours for a dental appointment, and I should probably floss once before then.
Have a good Wednesday. Keep faith and a stash of chocolate.
200 chocolate kisses,
