Blog Update

The contents of this blog were recently transferred from AOL journals, due to AOL's complete lack of [insert your own choice words]. Probably a good thing for everyone.

I'm still blogging at The Friday Chef, so there probably won't be any more posts here.

What are you waiting for?

I noticed that many people who link me have not updated my address, so I thought I'd post another reminder to go here:

Thanks for all your support!

Swan Song

Farewell AOL Journal.  It's been real. 

Thank you to everyone who came, saw, and commented.

I'd like to invite you all to the home of my new blog, The Friday Chef.

I hope to see you all there!

The Big Announcement.

Are you sitting down?  Well, of course you are.

Here it is... ready?

I'm moving.



Don't Hate Me because I don't Have HBO

I am so glad that several of you took participated in the Weekend Assignment, (see last entry)!  It took me a little while to come up with 25 things that weren't overly embarrassing or downright boring, but after reading some of the other entries that fellow bloggers posted, I kept coming up with more Random Things about me that I wanted to share.  I'll spare you for now, but it was suggested that we make this a regular thing, so consider this fair warning.  After all, nearly everyone loves talking about themselves, right?

Prepare yourselves for my Big Announcement later today.

Now, back to work.  (I mean you).

Weekend Assignment

John Scalzi, AOL's resident journaler has initiated a little thing known as Your Weekend Assignment.  Since I'm avoiding anything that has to do with sweating, this is the perfect exersize for me.  I challenge each of you to try this at home.

2.) I've been to every state in the continental U.S.A.

3.) I hate the feel of paper.  And chalk.

6.) My mom's maiden name is LaJennesse.

7.) I love having long fingernails and never bite them

10.) I am rarely ever in a bad mood

11.) I love Scotch

12.) I don't know how to knit

24.) I own over 30 pairs of shoes, but only 3 pairs aren't black

I'm a Big Fan

I had a nice chat with Freeepeace today.  That girl is so busy, that I felt honored to have her to myself for a short time.  Since Freeep and I were each other's first AOL~J buddies, she's special to me, though we don't find much time to chat between her journaling, (her latest entry had over 30 comments!), her dog-walking, and her music.  She has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I've ever known.  Anyone who would mourn the death of a black widow spider is someone who cares very deeply for other living beings! 

Freeepeace has been chosed the #1 pick this week by the AOL~journal editor.  For AOL members, you can check out the feature at Keyword: Journals.  For the rest of you, you can stop by her journal and see how this groovy California musician became so popular with her peers.  While you're there, check out her other website that will give you a sample of her talent.  Congrats, Freeep.  You've earned your recognition! 

Freeepeace recently discovered the joys of Survivor.  Though she picked the most boring of seasons to get hooked, I am thrilled.  Everyone needs a healthy dose of reality (TV).

Today, after months of badgering, I explained Hamstertime to her, and not once did she roll her eyes.  In fact, she admitted that a friend of hers had recommended that she fill out an application for the show and that she's "considering it".  

[rubs hands together]

By the time I'm done with her, she'll be crowned Miss Reality TV.
