Arabella Day!

Two years ago, during the first PB Contest, a blogger by the name of Arabella chose a post dedication as her prize. She was so appreciative that afterward, I joked that I would make it into a yearly holiday. And I did. I don't express often enough just how much you all mean to me. It's not that it matters so little, but rather that it gets lost in the comings and goings of normal life. But you do. You matter. You're like the family that I got to choose.

So today, in celebration of your fellow bloggers, leave a comment about the person who wrote before you. The next person will leave a comment about you and on it goes. You can comment as many times as you like until I close comments down at 3pm tomorrow afternoon (Eastern time). I will be sure to cap off the list personally so that no one gets left out. So, what are you waiting for? It's not hard! I've even included some examples below. Have fun!

Examples:
"Alien has mad photographing skills."
"Jay knows how to bring on the funny."
"Tequila Mockingbird has great tits."

Happy Arabella Day!

Oh yay - unless someone beats me, I get to compliment our Tink!

Tink, you are such a butterfly of brightness. You take even the newest of bloggers under your wing and make them feel like someone else out there cares. You are a devoted reader and commenter, even though you must read a gazillion blogs each day.

Glad you are my friend.

Thanks, Tink! I'm so lucky to know you!

I'm new to Fiwa's blog! Fiwa has a wonderful signature (as in, handwritten signature) posted on her blog. So elegant!

Arabella is a great mother.

Isn't this fun? I got to visit a blog that I hadn't been to before - Quantum Thoughts - and it will now be added to my Reader.

Mamalugo is a fascinating and articulate writer!

Dana is the hottest mom in Chicago!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Mary said...

Knight actually has a cool pic of an x-ray on her blog--nice!

Knight seems to be a very thoughtful writer--a new blog for me to enjoy!

Mary has a hysterical Gargamel cartoon on her blog. So very funny!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

Moi has an awesome blog header...kind of looks like flip flops to me, but I'm going back now to stare some more and to read her post about going to NY!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger meno said...

Wow, Janet has some awesome pictures. And a beautiful dog.

(I love it when you do this, tink.)

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Peggy said...

Meno has a wonderful blog! I'm surprised that I've not seen it before! She wrote about her daughter going off to college and it really hit home as I've had two leave home in the past couple of years and I completely identified with her words!

I met Corky on Arabella day last year and he's great!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger coffespaz said...

Tink, this is so much fun!! I got to visit Meno, whom I haven't seen before. I love her kitties! I love her blog header, and the little bit that I got to see of her posting (cool pics from hiking in the mountains, Meno) leave me wanting to come back for more...which I intend to do!

Happy Arabella Day!!

Oopsie...looks like Peggy and I were posting at the same time. So Peggy isn't left out, I went and visited her many blogs. What wonderful talent she has...and a wonderful cook too based on one blog. I also love her pink boots!!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Alice said...

I can't take the pressure of leaving the post and possible losing my slot so...

Coffespaz - I LOVE Coffee! I think your name rocks! Now I'm off to go and actually visit your blog. I'll leave you some love over there!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

I don't know Alice so went over to blog real quick like and OH MY GOD SHE'S AWESOME!

Alice's blog is titled "Honey Pie." Two of my favorite things in the world. Plus she's a riot. Absolutely brilliant and funny. Does it get any better than that?

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Knight said...

Jay is the coolest, funniest, most intelligent man ever of all time. I have a HUGE blog crush on him. Shh, don't tell.

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Jo said...

Knight is absolutely gorgeous & it still pales in comparison to what she has going on the inside---funny, clever, talented...I just adore her.

Jo's blog makes me want to bake more, which is unusual for this time of year because it's over 100 degrees here.

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Sassy Mama Bear said...

Apathy Lounge, a place to relax from all your worries.

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Allison said...

Wow! Sassy Mama Bear has AMAZING writing talent. Just beautiful.

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Allison, beat me to Sassy Mama Bear, which is okay, cause I already read her. Allison is a great photographer and whimsical, and now I have to go back and read some more.

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger moo said...

Reb is brillant and creative!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Kelley said...

I've never read moo's blog before today, but I'd hazzard to guess she might need a hug based on her most recent post.

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Tink said...

Kelley is a relatively new blogger, with a lovable, self-deprecating kind of humor (my favorite). She says that she's not sure she's all that interesting, but I found her take on life to be thoughtful and sometimes funny. Plus, she's a lover of yoga pants. Oh-sweet-yoga-pants!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger the Bag Lady said...

Cool - I get to compliment Tink!
I don't often comment, but almost always read Tink's blog because she is so funny, and creative and talented and intelligent! And just a tad weird, which is perfection, as far as the Bag Lady is concerned!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger geenalyn said...

The Bag Lady is from Canada like me which rocks, and she's super crafty!!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Michael Knight Rambo said...

Geenalyn, I like the matching tats! Cool way to celebrate an anniversary. It would take me the rest of my life to read all the books you've read/love on your list! I feel so lowbrow...

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Chelle Y. said...

Michael Knight confused me at first because he has two blogs, but I found the one I needed to read.

He must be a cool person since he was an "original" X-files fan. Me too. I have yet to see the movie.

Shoot, I have yet to see "The Dark Knight"

Have a good week, Michael!

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Fortune Cookies said...

I don't know MKR, so I swung by his blog...he made me smile with his sense of humor, even though he poked fun at one of the best shows ever...I'll forgive, since he did it with style :)

 
At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

I know that Chelle Y must be an extremely cool person because she owns a black cat who has obvious disregard for rules and conventions.

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger LL said...

Chris has great tits...

There... did I do it right?

Erm... you do have great loomas... right Chris? :ewink:

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Knight said...

Oh no! The game is off. Um Um...

Fortune Cookies kicks some major butt at the WWC.


LL, you have one sweet beard dude.

Tink, I heart this game. You rock.

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger LMPP said...

Knight, I love your hair! Can we swap??

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Terri said...

LMPP - just visited you real quick like for the first time and found our your having a birthday tomorrow??!!! Happy 30th! And no need to act your age (yet). And your from the U.K. - can I stay with you if I come for a visit??? :O)

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Terri said...

Ooops, maybe that birthday was last week - so happy belated birthday!

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Christy said...

Terri's part-time job is as an absent minded professor.

 
At 31 July, 2008, OpenID kcinnova said...

Christy has more blogs than I can imagine juggling, yet she does it well.

(Tink, this was a great idea!)

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

kcinnova is really quite funny and amazingly sane for having 4 boys!

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Mary said...

Maggie is hilarious! A new blog for me and I plan on reading more. I love that her first post is about pubic hair

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger PEACE said...

Don't know Mary, but just found her Why? blog and is my kind of humor. Also, made me feel so well read after looking at the the book list...I did have more than 6!

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger gary rith said...

My new friend Peace just started an art journel!!!! Wow, keep rolling, Peace, you have some talent!!!!
AND, as far as condoms go, Peace, it is very nice to be an old married guy who doesn't need to think too hard about what young people are doing......

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Tink said...

Gary can do some amazing things with his hands. Oops. That sounded dirty. I mean, he's an awesome potter. Seriously, you should go check out his stuff. He made me an amazing elephant tea pot. It's quite the conversation starter. I wish I had 1% of his artistic talent.

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger g-man said...

Hey it's not 3:00 yet... I though I still had time.

This is a really nice idea Tink.

I like Tink because she is creative and funny and certainly does not take herself seriously. She is an excellent photographer and probably a fine piece of ass :)

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger TNC said...

G-Man is a funny guy. I love perusing through his blog whenever I have the chance. He's a great photographer.

 
At 31 July, 2008, Blogger Tink said...

TNC is a kick ass photographer. She's also the inspiration for the WWC Flickr group, which makes her a genius in my book.
