I got an email from “Thanks, Mail Carrier” inviting me to participate in “Friendly Friday”. To be honest, I passed it off and continued about my day. I have heard so many negative things about “follower groupies” and the whole “follow me & I’ll follow you” about being nothing more than building numbers, that I wanted to steer clear of it. Most of the readers that I do have are loyal readers and that is way more important than sheer numbers.
Then I thought again…most of the readers that I do have now are a direct result from relationships that I gained through Friday Follow groups. So I here I am writing another post for the Friday crew.
I am “The Crayon Wrangler”. You can read more about me in the “About Me” section and I encourage you to read some of the posts titled “Lessons Learned” (we have great reader participation in those) Real Moms Of Genius (parody of Real Men of Genius by Budweiser) and tons of other rambling posts and vlogs about the more humorous side of parenting, marriage and everything that makes us women (and my 4 male readers!)
I also want to invite you to play along with Mama M’s Five Question Friday!
I do not have an iPhone but I was almost talked into buying an iString with two tin can handsets…Alright, truth. I “get” the concept of the iPhone and would love to have one, but I am just now starting to master setting the time on my microwave and programming our old VHS player. I’m not sure I have the “app”titude to try anything else right now.
The thing that came first to mind was my first kiss in kindergarten (actually just found that poor guy on FB too!) but my fondest memory was making something for our mom with clay. I don’t remember what it was supposed to be, but it ended up looking like a coiled snake combined with a bowl. I remember the excitement of finishing it, putting it in the kiln (Well, I didn’t put it in a firey hot oven due to liability and age) and then painting it. That was when I first learned the joy of creating something from nothing…I have been a writer ever since. The clay thing…I left that in the garbage along with my embroidery and latch hook creativity spells.
I am a mom, so there is not that much that I haven’t touched and overcome the cringe reaction.
I just had a parade of no less than 50 people fly through my mind to mention here, but the truth is I would be honored and humbled that any celebrity would take the time to show up on my doorstep.
But if someone happens to be reading…I would love for Dean Koontz and his lovely wife (and new pupdog) to show up for some koolaid and cookies, so we can have a chat about when the next “Odd Thomas” book is coming out.
I loathe these kind of questions…seriously. Must I really brag on my blog about something with my looks. Not only that, but it’s not really a physical feature but a combo of different things. I like my high cheekbones, but only because they balance out my almond shaped eyes…you know what…let’s just go with my knees. I am OK with my knees. Other than that, everything else is here today and gone tomorrow.
