A stick from a British chick
Thursday, March 24, 2005

I had no idea of what I was getting myself into when I started this whole blogging bit. The original intention was just monkey updates for friends and family. Now I'm sharing my whole life with the world. I wonder if anyone is reading this who I knew from like high school, college, where I used to live. (If you're one of the two college roommates who owes me backrent money, don't you think it's about time you paid me back? I'm sure you probably have a real job by now.)

I didn't realize how attached I am to this little bit o' cyberspace until I logged on this morning and (gasp of horror) I could not get my blog to load and it said error. Refresh refresh refresh. Panic set in. Some of those geeky hacker kids broke into my site and vandalized it! Those hoodlums! Those sons of guns! How dare they!

So I emailed Echo and asked her if she could see my site. Why did I do that, disturb her perfectly happy morning home w her kids because I'm having a panicattackdotcom? Is there a term for blog obsession? I should coin one.

blogomania n: The compulsive obsession to update, view, comment or otherwise involve one's self constantly with online web journals. ex. K8 suffers from such an extreme case of blogomania that when she got a website error on her blog, she had to be medicated immediately. See also blogophobia, blogophilia.

Of course I'm exaggerating. As a matter of I have more friends now. Cool people. I think there should be an annual worldwide blog reunion so we all meet each other in person?Or would that ruin the mystery/magic? Not for me cause what you read here is what you get baby.

I look forward to my unwind time in the evening after the girls are in bed and I can blog & read other ones. Or like right now at work. I've been typing this in between what I have to do/people I have to see. Helps calm my brain on busy days.

Gettin down to business here-this is what started my bloggy thoughts- Fizzy told me she threw a stick at me. Not being familiar with this term, I thought she was just a little bonky. Then I found out it's like a questionaire thingy. Something that makes you think. Oy vey amigos.
Here it is...

You are stuck inside
Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be? I guess this means what book would you want to memorize? I would choose the Book of Matthew from the New Testament of the Bible.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? Yeah, Jessica's boyfriend from the Sweet Valley High Series- does anyone remember those?

The last book you bought is: The Little Engine That Could for the girls,
I Don't Know How She Does It by Allison Pearson for myself. (I actually downloaded it from audible.com) I give it 5 stars- I loved it.

The last book you read was: The same as above. Actually read, as in paper book, was last night to the girls before bed- 5 Silly Monkeys. (true, I promise)

What are you currently reading? I just downloaded a book but I can't remember the name ; I haven't started it yet. When I have time I read little snippets of
My Utmost for His Highest and flip through whatever magazines my mom left on the kitchen table- Good Housekeeping(ha) Southern Living Prevention

Five books you would take to a deserted island:1. My
Bible. 2. Caravans by James Michener 3. A Robert Frost Anthology 4.The God Chasers by Tommy Tenney 5. She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb

I noticed
Echo mentioned The Purpose Driven Life on a recent post. That book is great. It's getting even more publicity now bc of the whole Atlanta Courthouse killings thing. Audible is giving a free download of the chapter she read to the guy. Click this link. It has the whole story there too.

I almost forgot...I'm chunkin this stick at Renee, Shanee, and Echo. I hope it doesn't hit you in the head.

hehehehe. That is hard to do isn't it? I didn;t know what a stick was until I got messages in my comments telling me I had a stick thrown at me. I had been reading these book thingys on other sites but I didn't know about the stick thingy. It took me ages to think.

It's a good thing I didn't get my painkillers earlier, or else I wouldn't be able to actually think through this and fulfill my duties to others in the blogosphere. ;)

Who's the Monkey Mama?

Location: Planet Twinstar, Monkeyville, United States

I'm a real live human person...the slightly wacky mom of 6 year old identical twin primate princesses and one 2year old monkeyboy. I'm divorced from a crazy baboon and remarried to a big snuggly gorilla. I thank God daily for my wonderful family and friends, without whom I would go berserk. My chirren are the cutest kids ever born (besides yours) and if you don't believe that you obviously need to see a shrink.

How is she feeling?
