“When anybody asks, 'What are you writing about now?' if I try to reply, the book-in-the-works sounds so idiotic to me that I think, 'Why am I trying to write that puerile junk?' So now I give up; if I could talk about it, I wouldn't have to write it."

Blonde Girl

Monday, June 20, 2005


Well, it seems I've started something. My closest friend has started a blog of her own. Even though she has 2 posts to my 1 (soon to be 2 when this one posts), I still claim seniority since I was here first - even if it was only by a day. She is the one is determined to continue introducing me to expensive habits - from stamping to scrapbooking to beading and so much more - and I love her for it, even though the Geek may not. She is the one I call when I'm in a shopping emergency. (I'm horrible at shopping alone!) She is the ONLY person who can get away with telling me what looks good on me and what doesn't - and sometimes I even listen to her. She is a communicator, which means she fills in the empty spaces when I run out of words to say, and yet she is always ready to listen on the rare occasion when I feel the need to speak.

So, without further ado, I want to welcome Blond Girl! My posts will be peppered with her name as well as that of her daughter, my goddaughter and favorite little girl in the world, Sweet Girl (whom she calls Tiglet). Blond Girl, I look forward to reading your blog. If it is any reflection of you (and I know it will be), it will be funny, sarcastic, sweet, occasionally sad, but mostly entertaining. Thanks for joining me here. It's gonna be a blast!

Thank you, Geekwif! I look forward to sharing yet another obsession with you. Did I say obsession? Ok, well, scale that back to extremely time consuming yet enjoyable hobby and that might seem a little more inline with acceptable terminology. I appreciate your description of me. I didn't realize I was the only person allowed to tell you what looks good and what doesn't. Whatever - just so I still get to go shopping with you! When we are both in different states, we will need to plan shopping excursions and save vast amounts of money for those dates. I shall start a new "shopping-with-geekwif-for-clothes-shoes-and-other-sundries" savings account soon.

Oooh, yummy, that's the best kind of savings account! Maybe when we are in different states we can go virtual-shopping together. We'll just login to IM together and visit the same online stores. Some www.jjill.com, www.firemountaingems.com, www.beadshop.com, maybe even a little www.ebay.com. Then we'll have to plan a yearly personal visit, comprised mostly of shopping! You're family won't care, right?

Good Lord ladies. Can you imagine if there was virtual shopping and you could scan stores and approach items with your mouse, click to pick it up, etc... It surely would become like womens internet porn. Addicting. Little B
