My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

Like I said, I will be here to support you with comments during the nablopofromojo month (close enough) and that is however you blog. If you feel the need, the compulsion to promote me and my blog over and OVER and over again. Well, just know that I will be here to support you every inch of the a fellow nablopofromojo member, of course!


Ok, I JUST submitted my own post for today, which is entitled "i am totally cheating"...then I click on over here to read a REAL post, and look what I get?? Bwahahahaha.
I think this means we both cancel each other out, so we are both non-cheaters now. No?
Thanks for the blogroll ;-)


I kind of cheated yesterday, but didn't call attention to it. One post is actually an apology for re-posting all my November posts in order to put the NaBloPoMo label on them (in case one or more persons reads me on a feed reader), and I felt so guilty and lame that I added another post when I got home from dinner. The second post was actually excerpted from an email to someone who asked me if I'd heard any new music lately. I didn't even include links. But as long as I post something right?

"nablopofromojo" Ha! I like that, Elizabeth.


I like how you cheat by sucking up to the people (other participants) who might call you a cheater. Very smart. Seems to be working too. ;)


'Splainin' your blog roll isn't cheating. It's an Internet-dex. Totally different.


Thank you all for understanding. :)

This is so not cheating! I might or might not be saying that because I'm listed here. Grazie :)

And I'm getting a pair of Uggs ASAP and I'm sending you many, many photos.


Noooooooo! Not the Uggs!

Oh god, sister, I am so freaking boring right now. Sneeze, hack, sputter. I read you every day too, though, but hopefully you knew that.

Yes, the sex life...ack, COME BACK.


Oh, sweetie, you're not boring; you're just sick! But before you got sick, I was very much enjoying your usual brilliant feminist rantings, the ones of others that you chose to share, and the true tales of student horror, or horrible students, or something.

I know that underneath all that snot is a fun and brilliant person who will be back with a bang when the NyQuil has been put away. (And for your sake I hope that's a double entendre.)


Oh, and she used to be a journalist, so she would probably deplore the writing style of this post.

Any post with this many good links (and this much ego-massaging) is indeplorable.
