We came, we saw, we blog partied.... and other random thoughts

1,489 participants in the Ultimate Blog Party this year. It was pretty fun; I found some really interesting blogs and according to my site meter, I appear to have run off quite a few people. Heh. Sorry 'bout that folks, hope you won't need extensive therapy to recover. I really do need a warning sticker.

At any rate, I found some great new blogs to add to my reading list... if I missed yours, forgive me... Momnesia. What can I say? At any rate, just drop me a note and I'll fix it.

Optimism and Google

Ok, you. The google searcher who asked about "Bailiff Whack his Peepee" (I'm Number 1 with a Bullet on Google, folks! SO proud) at 10:48pm, 12:57am and 2:14am and clicked on the link to my blog EACH time... is that optimism, or do you need a sign? (Here's yer sign...)

My husband has recently discovered Facebook. His entire family has joined this interest and the other night I heard him talking really loudly. I thought he was yelling at a basketball game but when I listened more closely, the context was really out of place. So, I wandered downstairs to check it out.

He and his whole family were all on Skype and Facebook, having a high old time. Did I mention his parents are in their mid-eighties? My MIL burst into song, my FIl and my husband were having an argum... er, lively debate about IMing and other people were chatting about who knows what. It was cute. I get a kick out of my inlaws.

Commercials that Drive Me Insane

the Crayola toddler marker commercial. Is this woman crazy? Lets put a piece of paper on a WHITE carpet and hand a marker to a two year old. Is this commercial underwritten by Rug Doctor? Inquiring Gerbils Want to Know.

Also? This made me snort.

Google searches are always quite entertaining. I love going over to my referrals page and finding the searches that lead people to my blog!

Skype ROCKS. We have friends and family on other continents, so it's fantastic to be able to talk to them FREE. :)

I laugh about the bailiff what his peepee thing. I remember where that came from but too funny someone googled it 3 times in a night!
My parents aren't into facebook but they have skype like we do and my dad has decided it is much better then using the phone so we talk on that all the time now.

Still hopping from blog to blog... my goal is to post at each blog at least once. Nice to meet you. Happy blogging!
