Arabella Day

Last year Arabella was one of the winners of the PB contest. As her prize, she chose to have a personal post done about her. It wasn't a hard one for me to write. She is an amazing woman, Mom, and blogger. But most importantly, her appreciation of it made me realize how infrequently I voice how much you all mean to me. You are more friends to me than most of the people I see physically. Last year I jokingly told Arabella that I was going to make a holiday after her.

Then it dawned on me... Why not? This little corner of the blogosphere is MINE. I'll make whatever I damn well please. Besides, there aren't enough non-commercial holidays. So in celebration of you, all of you, I am naming this Arabella Day. It's the day for telling your fellow blogger what they mean to you. Here's how it goes. Leave a comment about the person who wrote before you. The next person will leave a comment about you. On it goes. You can comment as many times as you like.

Examples:
"Jay makes me laugh so hard I feel like pissing my pants"
"Newt has a heart of gold. She makes me want to be a better person."
"Mama T has great tits."

That's it. Have fun!

Friday Contest Winners!
Brodimus Prime- Post (Tuesday)
Jay- Goody Bag
Pamer- Goody Bag
Geenalyn- Goody Bag
Fiwa- Goody Bag
For everyone who chose the goody bag, please email me your mailing address (twstdtinkatyahoodotcom). I'll have them out in the mail by next weekend.

P.S. Jay presented me with the "Creative Blogger Award"! Acceptance speech on Wednesday. Bring tissues. I'm gonna cry.

P.P.S. Twisted (Tink) has been updated with another revised chapter, "Smudge On The Rug." More to come (hopefully today).

Happy Arabella Day Tink!

The tough thing about being first is that there is nobody before me write about. You, however dear Tink are a dream. You sometimes make me wish that I still lived in Florida just so we could hang out.

I've always wanted to get close to you Peggy and now here's my chance.

Hi, I'm Corky. Will you be my friend and visit my blog?

OOhhhh Corky...I've always loved a man in uniform.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Tink said...

I will forever associate Susan with the color lime green. She's got a wickedly colorful personality.

Aw, such wonderful family and community here.

Makes me sick ;)

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger coffespaz said...

What a wonderful idea. The blogging community is really close-knit, and its nice to have the different views of fellow-bloggers to reflect on.

I like Orhan's playful synicsm...and I love Tink's positive outlook on things.

Oh, Tink, you are so damn cute they should name a holiday after YOU!

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Chelle Y. said...

Debbiedoeslife, I do not know anything about you, but if you know Tink, you must be a fun person.

I am going to check you out right now (your blog, haha)! :)

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Jen said...

Chelle ~ you have a beautiful name and I'm sure that if I could see your blog (if you have one), it'd be beautiful too.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Chelle Y. said...

Jen my blog is www.chelleyoung.com. Blogspot won't let anyone transfer there! :)

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger mamatulip said...

Chelle likes baseball. Therefore, I like Chelle. ;)

Chele's blog reminds me of spring in kindergarten.

P.S. That whole "tit" thing was tempting, but she seems so nice.

Oop, Coffeespaz and Jen got skipped.

Coffeespaz: Thoughtful and thought provoking. Plus, she's a coffee lover (obviously), which automatically makes her golden in my book. Mmmmm, coffeeee.

Jen: Bubbly and zany. She has her own version of "conversations" that always cracks me up. But in one of those "I'd NEVER do that" sort of ways. (Yeah right)

Edge: Would totally be my wingman if I were a dude.

Tink - it's a special person who uses their blog space to spread love to everyone who visits. :) You've got a great sense of humour, not to mention creativity and imagination - all of which contribute to the wonderful writer that you are.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Jay said...

Freakazojd is just over-flowing with talent. She has it all, smarts, great sense of humor and beauty. A dangerous combination, but one she handles gracefully.

I am a newish blogger, and Jay took the time to come visit a pathetic blogging wannabee !
Jay is honest, and lets it all hang out, and I like that !

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger geenalyn said...

mitchgib: just looked at your blog right now, and i like that you have the same sense of humour as my hubby

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Chris said...

Geenalyn is Canadian. Canadians are cool. :) Plus she has Tonic on her ipod. What's not to love?

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Arabella said...

Tink, I am so honored I could cry. Instead of doing that, though, I broke a little wind. I'm sorry. Good thing the Internet is odorless. I hope you still love me, 'cause I sure love you.

Geenalyn says wonderful things, like "humour" with a "u" and "big boy underwears." Plus, she's my same age, and has twice as many kids as I have, and two of them are twins, so she's an amazing multitasker.

Woo hoo! I got Arabella herself!!

Ahem. Arabella is an inspriation to those who think they can't do it all. She, in fact, does do it all and more. Twins! Law practice! Marriage! Successful shoe shopping online!

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Scottsdale Girl said...

Michelle has a picture of a tuxedo kitteh on her blog and used the Phrase "that was Zen this is Tao" These two things alone make me want to read her blog.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Kell said...

Scottsdale girl has a quote from Dorothy Parker on her profile, and since I had to do a paper on Parker in college, I feel we've bonded in a way. And if she's on Tink's blog, she must also have a wicked sense of humor.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Lefty said...

kell is obviously great since she loves microbrew and HAS DRUNK ACTUAL BEER IN THE ACTUAL NATION OF GERMANY. She's my heroine for that!

Oh yes, and are you selling greeting cards and trinkets for Arabella Day?

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Terri said...

Lefty has a very nice left ankle; the shoes aren't too bad either and the color choice is kickin' and he is being open-minded about the potter books - which I find fantastic!

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger meno said...

Oh i LOVE it when you do this.

Terri is a fine person because she likes science fiction. That means she is a creative thinker and not afraid to be unusual. Plus her blog is beautifully done.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Spamboy said...

Not sure who you are, Meno, but I'm sure your hair smells like rainbows and stuff.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger graymama said...

Chris knits. Enough said. knitter=cool in my book.

spamboy is a writer. A talented writer. Go check out his stories!

Love you Tink :-)

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Tink said...

Graymama is unbelievably kind and generous, wicked with a sewing machine, and one of the best Moms I've ever met. I'd like to believe that if I had been blessed with a sister, on top of my two awesome brothers, she would have been it. On top of that, she noticed that Chris had been skipped over... You rock girl.

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger Tink said...

Lefty: Sure! You're going to provide them, right? ;)

 
At 30 July, 2007, Blogger mjd said...

What a wonderful idea, Happy Arabella Day. Graymama has a wonderful attitude; she wishes for the day that moms will be non-judgmental. Tink our fabulous hostess helps us get acquainted with great gestures like Happy Arabella Day and the Spork Awards.

YAH!!
mjd is a new friend and I have been enjoying her blogs lately. She is very insiteful.

 
At 31 July, 2007, Blogger TheBirdman33 said...

Birdman is witty and clever and OH SO INCREDIBLY sexy

 
At 31 July, 2007, Anonymous Michelle said...

Birdman has a very cool profile picture.

 
At 31 July, 2007, Anonymous TB said...

Michelle has a great blog name and she takes lovely photos.

 
At 31 July, 2007, Blogger captain corky said...

I just came back from visiting TB's blog. What amazing pictures. I heart fishing!

 
At 31 July, 2007, Blogger Arabella said...

Sorry, Chris! We posted our comments simultaneously and I didn't see yours.

Chris participates in a blog that combines knitting AND movie-watching. How cool is that? Plus, she's incredibly prolific and participates in many blogs.

Captain Corky's blog makes me hungry, what with all the talk of lasagna and sushi!

I think you're supercalafragilisticexbialidoecious... ( I think you get the idea even if I can't spell)...

 
At 02 August, 2007, Blogger fiwa said...

These comments are hilarious. My most favorite comment was Spamboy's about Meno: Not sure who you are, Meno, but I'm sure your hair smells like rainbows and stuff.

mrspao, I can't see your blog, but I think you must be the sort of person who brings a smile to the face of everyone who knows you.
