So Holly, that is, TexasHolly over at JuneCleaverNirvana does a potluck every Monday. And you know, as a mom, that just makes sense. Who wants to do a lot of work on a Monday? You’re just only getting over your chocolate binges and sweating the fact that you didn’t do any where near the laundry you meant to. So go ahead, throw a few things together, ask some friends to toss in a few juicy morsels, and by Joe, you’ve got yourself a potluck.
And today she decided to turn it into a party. And I HATE missing a good party. There might be hors d’oeuvres. Or margaritas. I miss a margarita and I get cranky.
So I figure I can handle it. I have this whole Martha Points thing to motivate me on my quest for good things, like, you know, being a decent party guest. Or, hosting a good party. Which, with luck, will not result in anyone catching the Plague. Because I’ve resolved to not do that again.
Ok….so let’s see…Holly’s got a good one:
There are two really mystifying ones. The first is: “Badges to orders of Russian Empire.” Why do the Russians need badges? Is Russia still an Empire? And what do Russia or an Empire need with Martha Points?
The other was: “Trying to quell the guilt from nearly burning down the house.” 1. I’m alarmed that that person ended up on my blog because they were clearly in need of something more serious than a humor blog about a self-destructing house. 2. I’m thinking that Google is reading a little too much into my posts.
This could, in fact, be its own post (and may be someday – stay tuned). But a Picture is Worth A Thousand Words, so they say, so I’ll show you a photo of the Evil Done By Cats.
And I really liked that vase too.
- Cold cereal
- Cat food.
And the coolest thing to happen to me this week, behind getting to go to WordCamp, and behind finding making awesome PeanutButter cookies, was getting nominated for a blogger award. A really nice woman (Hi Jessica!) nominated my blog for “Awesomest Overall Blog” over at I Am Mommy. And to add to the make-Lori-feel-like-a-real-blogger-ness of the whole thing, there were something like 30+ entries and Manda had to pick 20. I don’t know what criteria she used, it could have been names from a hat, but I made the cut. And it’s just really, really an amazing feeling to know that you write something people enjoy. Because I’ve wanted to do that pretty much my whole darned life.
Ok, I think that’s a wrap. Potluck over. Please use the recycling bins.
Till next time!
