January 23 07

my morning started VERY early. like, 2:45 early. no, i’m not kidding. it’s like i’m being punished for daring to take a couple of days off. Isabella was screaming like Dora was in her crib, ripping out each of her fingernails, one at a time. then her screaming woke up Josh, who had himself a raging little fever. so, out came Bella. and out came Josh. we put Dora on (at least 7 times that i can remember) for the bugger and we put some tylenol into Josh.

and she didn’t go back to sleep. until 6:30…which…ding, ding, ding, thanks for playing folks, is the VERY time i wake up in the morning to get ready for work. so…while the husband got himself an extra hour and change of sleep, i got to get up and start my day. i need coffee.

but first, i’m on a mission of sorts. since i have a serious girl crush on a certain someone (even though she left me off of her daily reads….) and she requested that we find a new blog, read through the archives and introduce it to our readers. and what Karen Rani wants from me, she gets (except for the whole circumcision thing…but that’s a story for another day).

so, i started in her daily reads looking for a blog i’ve never read. this was a challenge, personally, since i read a ri-fucking-diculous amount of blogs every day. Then i clicked over to leahpeah. (go on, get. but then come back. pretty please!) see…the thing is with leahpeah…i’ve heard of her. i’ve seen that name about a million times. but for some strange reason, i’ve never read her.

and seriously, if you haven’t, you should. and not only because she uses the word “rubbish”. and not only because she buys polka dot bras (love!) but still sometimes manages not to wear a bra at all. and not only because when she bakes, her goods come out looking like logs of poo. and not only because she takes amazing photos. and not only because she plays guitar hero. ah, love.

so…your assignment for today, people, is to find a new blogger. and tell your readers. you are more than welcome to my little old blogroll that’s completely gathering dust on my sidebar…since it hasn’t been updated…in…well, probably since i started using bloglines. so, i guess i have an extra assignment. fix old blogroll. shit. that’s going to take a lot of time, which i don’t have, because i’m going to be over at leahpeah‘s all frickin’ day.


  1. Hey, your blog’s on Karen’s list…or am I seeing things?

    So your day started at 2.45 this morning? OUCH. Maybe add a little Bailey’s to your morning cuppa…

  2. See that, I’m just screwing with your mind. I’m an asshat – no really. When I switched to Bloglines from Blogrolling, I left you off the list – why? Because it was a completely stupid oversight on my part and I’m really sorry so if you can find it in your heart to forgive me and see that I re-added you to the list, you’ll be forever my favorite blogger, besides myself of course because I’m incredibly conceited and capable of making this sentence run on forever and ever amen and what is this business about circumcision anyway?


    Good job on Leah. Also? She interviews bloggers and I LOVE that part of her blog.

  3. I love the title of your blog — I found you via Troll Baby, and I love Leahpeah too. Hope it’s possible to get a nap today!

  4. oh, good lord, i don’t think i could take on another blog… i’ve been trying to read all my readers (once they delurked) and i can barely keep up with that…

  5. WOW… LOVE the blogs that you have helped me discover.
    On a side note I have been checking your blog for over a week now and NOTHING was changing. So I finally decided to look at the address that I had bookmarked and low and behold it was taking me to the same post each time.
    Anyway your trip to NYC sounded fun. I would say thanks for the update but apparently it is just my own precious stupidity!
    Gotta love it,

  6. Oy, I feel your 2:45 am pain. The monkey does that now and then….I rock her back to sleep in 5 minutes. Usually, she’s a 7:45-8:30ish kind a gal, so I don’t dismay….
    Lovely mission and assignment! I read a gazillion blogs a day, too…. But, I’ll give this a try! 🙂 Maybe I’ll check out Rani’s blog, finally! 🙂

  9. I love reading your blog. You crack me up! Your morning made me tired….and since I’m already tired…that makes for reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally tired. Hope you catch up on some Z’s tonight.

  10. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve experienced that waking up at 3 a.m. for the day thing.

  11. ooh, i like this plan a lot. i will have to get on that sometime this weekend maybe (’cause it ain’t happening today). it reminds me of when tv guide used to do a cover story on “the best show you’re not watching,” to celebrate a great show that wasn’t getting high ratings. this is a little different, ’cause it’s not necessarily about finding a blog that *no one* is reading – just one that you aren’t – but still, sounds fun. 🙂 thanks!

  12. And speaking of whining about not being on blog rolls…how do I get on yours! Is it the fact that I have been a bad poster and haven’t blogged for several days. I know I have to get my act in gear because tomorrow is Thursday.

    But thanks…because I need new blogs to read since my husband essentially asked “WTF do you do all day?” So next time he asks I want to tell him that I read 100 blogs a day and let’s see him top THAT with his big fat paycheck! Bitter? Maybe a tad.

  13. It’s greatest idea! Thank you!
