Right now, I am thankful for…my wonderful, gorgeous to-a-hostini Ten Things of Thankful co-hosts. I set them a task recently, in preparation for our WONDERFUL 25th Weekaversary this weekend, and they all rose BEAUTIFULLY to the challenge.
And WHAT a task it was! It took asking nicely, sending reminders, pestering, cajoling, begging, and finally a dose of public shaming. And this after every. single. one. ganged up on me a few weeks ago in a debate about portrait vs landscape photographs.
So what I’m also thankful for, in spite of the fact that I nearly had to jump THROUGH the internet and grovel, on my knees, in person, for the final contributions, they DID IT.
And I’ve put it together, and it’s just the most exciting, amazing thing I think I’ve seen in…since…adunno – it’s a thing of wonder all in its own way.
I spent this evening coding it (and now have 8 minutes before I’m meant to be going to bed) and just WOW, you are gonna LOVE it!
Come back tomorrow to join in and get an extra special something…
Coding is hard. That is all.
I got a HUGELY exciting parcel in the post today from one of my absolutely favourite ‘mericans*, and not only did it contain a card with beautiful handwriting (the words were awesome too, but the writing! Wow! my writing’s a MESS, and I am in awe of anyone who can write in neat cursive (we don’t learn that in school here, and the more’s the pity)) but it contained a most excellently fun blank notebook with the legend ‘Ideas for tweets’ on the cover.
AND it had some tweet ideas filled in already (in that same, awesome handwriting), which is SO cool. And definitely makes me think that the writer should get her ass on Twitter sometime in the near future, seeing as she clearly has the thought process in place already.
Only in a world where I tie a sparkly silver ribbon on my hat to make me look less ‘blokey’ could this exchange have occurred. To clue you in, the exchange was with another blogger seeking ideas for her next vlog, and suggesting that she might do something on hair extensions. I had other ideas:
If only the sparkly silver ribbon MADE me less blokey and not so utterly clueless about ‘girl skills’ *sigh*
If you want to see HER ‘girl skills’, head on over to Calibamamom
Karyn, of PicklesINK, is going to be here for a veryveryshort time, and has requested an audience with me (SO EXCITED), so if you miss me over the weekend – that’s where I’ll be!
Also, that 8 minutes totally turned into an hour, and now I’m late for bed! Oops!
