And they told two friends, and so on, and so on...

This is what blogging and the deadly links remind me of ... that hair commercial years ago, I think it was for Herbal Essence? I've been totally addicted to this activity lately, even more than I ever was to Facebook. Just sucked into cyberspace, as I pop into one blog, which leads me to another, and then another and I sit reading with a voracious appetite all these ponderings of bloggers all over the world. Commenting on others' thoughtful, insightful and often humorous musings. And then trying to come up with original material, thoughts, things that I might enjoy reading about, for my expanding circle of bloggity-blog friends.

I have to get out with the kids a few times a day or I would just be glued to the screen. As it is, whenever we get home, I rush to the computer, to see if anyone has read my most recent post and had anything to say about it. It's so bad now that if my kids are looking for me they'll more likely come to the study than the kitchen. So I'll have to remedy that and get a laptop for the kitchen. Yeah, that's it, to google for all those new recipes I will try in our spanking new kitchen, that's the ticket.

And I'm cursing the fact that I told my husband that he could take the camera on his trip, not realizing that there would be all these lovely moments to be captured while he was away. Who would have thought that the camera would be such an important part of blogging? There are some things that can only be told with an image. Including my new head, which instead of looking as luscious as when I walked out of the salon on Thursday, now looks more like Betsey Johnson's tresses without the cartwheel factor.

Help me! Is there such a thing as "Bloggers' Anonymous", or is that an oxymoron?

Oh yeah, I feel you! My non-blogging friends don't get it. They totally don't get why I insist on continuing to blog even though twice now my blog has been found by co-workers and caused me trouble (not job security trouble, gossip trouble) but I love it too much to let some busy-bodies with nothing else to do but talk about me in the lunchroom stop me!

Yeah, a camera is essential.

I say "bloggers anonymous" is the new oxymoron. Getting a laptop in the kitchen -- do you have a TV too? That would pretty much guarantee you never leaving the kitchen. LOL

And I have to wrestle the camera from my sister for my trip to T.O.. It's just inhumane to experience all the sights, and not being able to take pictures.

Are you hinting I should stop referring to you in public as the blog-lady? lol...Your blog is so enjoyable I can't help but advertise. Lots of people don't know about the blog world so when I talk about your blog they are very interested in learning about the phenomenon of this seemingly new internet practice. For now, I am living vicariously in the blog world through yours and others I stumble upon. Thanks for the entertainment!

Forgot to add, I've mentioned your blog but haven't given out the link--so in that respect you still remain anonymous. I think before doing so I would ask your permission since you live near these people who would then know you but you wouldn't necessarily know them...if that makes sense...

OMG! I SO know what you're talking about... I'm a fanantic! My 2 1/2 year old now comes home and asks if he got any emails b/c I check so much! It's so bad! :)
I love the idea of Bloggers Anonoymous!
