I'm hanging with the fabulous Mrs. 4444 today and joining the Friday Fragments Fun!
Don't be shy! Clickety on over and join the party!
As you may have gathered from my lame title, my brain's on fog alert this morning...hopefully you won't think I'm completely mental by the end of this post!
Fragment 1 Comment Confusion....
As you may know, I've been out of the blogosphere for a bit takin' care of the hubster (aka Meat Sack, Chilly, Dude Who'd Better Bring Home Take-Out Tonight, etc...)
I've discovered a lot of weird stuff going on in the blog world upon my return. For instance, what is up with the massive amounts of comment spam? Holy word verification, Blog Man! And why are they all connected to penis enhancing products? (note to spammers...no penis here...I can see how you might think there would be with all of the pink, roses and girlish~ness over here...move along please, you freaks...)
I've seen lots of blogs with the new CommentLuv thing going on...If you have it, do you like it? Does it help with the spam? I've also noticed lots of bloggers have turned their word verifications back ON. Is this helping too? What are your thoughts about the new comment plug-ins that are out there?
Fragment 2: Where Did Everyone Go???
Over this past week, I've tried to visit every blog I follow. More than half of them are gone! POOF! Just like that! Here no more! I tracked some of them down on Wordpress, but others have made like Elvis and apparently left the building! Has blogging become...dare I say it...a bit of old news? What do you think is happening in the blogging world??
Fragment 3: CSN Store Reviews...
Ok...they found me...CSN cornered me last week and wants me to do a giveaway/ review...Is it worth it? Have you done one? Have you shopped at CSN.com? Feedback is much appreciated on this!
Fragment 4: Cupcake Overload
Ok..I'm just gonna come right out and say it...I bake a mean cupcake. I'm a cupcake baker extraordinaire! I can't boil water or make toast, but dagnabit, I can bake fabulous cupcakes. This is my daughter's new favorite thing...
We are going to rock the ginormous cupcake action this weekend while we catch up on DC Cupcake and Cupcake Wars. We are totally hooked on these shows....and Man Vs Food...and anything with Paula Deen and Sandra Lee...I gotta stop now...my tummy is growling...
Fragment 5: Secret Language of the Smith Family
We have confused many a guest at our home with our secret language. Heck, we even confuse our kids, cashiers, bank tellers, Chilly's doctors....just about everybody. Chilly and I have developed our own language...It happens in marriage...Our language just happens to be in movie quote speak. We've actually offended people who don't "get" what we're saying!
Right now we are over-using "it's the @$%#-ing Catalina Wine Mixer, Dude!" (please note that I insert the actual word "bleeping" in front of Catalina Wine Mixer...unlike my nerdanderthal husband...) We also say 'Effin' A- Cotton...Effin' A...." ALOT...But the one I use waaaay too much is "That's gold, Jerry...Gold!"....that drives my entire family insane!
Do you have a secret family language or code??? Wanna share?
(anyone guess where those quotes up there come from???)
Fragment 6: TTFN
Well, it's TTFN! (also another quote from a very loved cartoon character...any guesses?) Gotta' split! ( I just typed spit...like 8x while trying to type that!) We've completed all 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which was fabulous, btw...I love me some Spike...oh yes, I do....) and are off to find a new series to finish off our summer vac-ay...any suggestions???
Have a wonderful weekend!
