So yesterday was a fun day for me, gettin' all those comments from ya'll...
Especially from those of you who seldom comment.
I loved your comments so much I felt like I should respond to each of you individually.
So here I go.
Ken - where have you been? You don't know who Sanjaya is? He's a boy who was on American Idol and looks just like an Indian version of Kyler. It's uncanny how much he looks like him. He was a terrible singer.
Karla - maybe we should go to coffee sometime?
Rod - I love that you read my blog. You're like another big brother to me. I get warm fuzzy feelings just thinking about your visits. And yes - I do read your blog.
Patti - any friend of Kelly's is a friend of mine. Seriously. We'll have to meet next time I visit.
Corey - I suspected you might pick Rosie. And Pain Au Chocolat - YUM! Seriously - chocolate and bread are my two favorite foods in the world - put them together and I'm in heaven. Miss you, friend.
Marie - Ew. Getting sick on a plane just must be the worst. You poor dear. I'm so sorry, sweetie.
Lorraine - I'm so happy that you like reading my blog - but you must know I'm not at all 'together.' I'm a basket case most of the time. But I am happy. Love you.
Kate - Your comments always make me happy. I'm so glad you read my blog. It's just nice to know you've been here. You should comment more often, friend. *wink*
Missy - isn't it so fun to be a beezie girl and have friends all over the place? And I love your comment about how unnatural riding in planes is... I always think that... big tubes of metal should not be able to be thousands of feet in the air full of people. It's just freaky.
hmbalison - what is your first name, dear? I always want to call you Alison, but the hmb throws me off. (and guess what? You're my winner - because it will be worth it all to finally know your name after all this time that you've been reading and commenting!)
Katy - dear, dear Katy. Don't you know that drinking Diet Coke in the morning is icky for your insides? Okay - probably not any worse than coffee, but I had an anatomy teacher in high school who lectured us once about how bad soda is for you first thing in the morning. It stuck. So when you become a teacher, remember that you really can influence your students for the rest of their lives.
Deb - How about that Band and Strings Spectacular? Wasn't it spectacular? I looked and looked for Nora, but unfortunately she wasn't wearing a loud Hawaiian shirt and I couldn't spot her. Have I told you that Kyler is in love with her again? He was so disappointed that we couldn't go to bible study last night because he 'just had to see Nora...' Ah - young love...
Copley Family - I'll get right on that book publishing thing... but only if you promise to be my manager.
Mom - it's so weird that you're going to be here on Saturday - but I won't see you... SO glad you're staying after the cruise so we can see you. Sanjaya would adore you, I'm sure.
Kelly - okay. So I never call. Don't you know I hate the phone? But I did send you a package yesterday... I'm working on that 40 year old single guy...
Andi - Yay! I really wanted you to comment too - and you did! I think we should be friends. Smooch you!
Chrissy - one of the things I'm looking forward to most on the cruise is sleeping in... and not having to get up for any reason at all except because I feel like it. Can you even imagine? Love you too, friend.
Min - you made me laugh out loud with the 'he won't bleed into my chair' comment. Good point! It was great to see you Tuesday. Was the pool warm enough?
So there we go.
Wasn't that fun?
And in case you didn't read all the way through all of those - hmbalison won the Starbucks card - but only if she comments here and tells me her first name!
Thanks for playing, friends.
We'll do it again soon!
