Wake Up People, It's Monday!

Hey Guys!

So, did you miss me? I missed you too. Well actually, there were times when I didn’t even think about blogs or blogging or any of you because well I was thinking of other things – but I didn’t forget you.

So let’s see…okay, first of all we are suspending Theme Fridays for the time being, probably til after the 1st of the New Year. All of us have various things that have us swamped and distracted and so after much discussion and deliberation we’ve decided to suspend for now. I will however, probably still do some sort of fiction thing on Fridays, it just won’t be a group thing with reciprocal links.

My friend Kelly, who you may remember was in a bad car accident last Spring is doing much better, so much better in fact that her doctors have agreed to put the part of her skull that they had to remove when she had the accident, back in. It will be a late Christmas present and the surgery will be at the end of December. We’re all excited because then she will look really good in hats again. (She thought that was funny, come on, people, lighten up). And to celebrate she sent you this vid:

Quite a little toe tapper, ain’t it?

You’ll all be delighted to know I have refined my chicken vegetable soup recipe to perfection. Feel free to email me for a copy.

I pulled a hamstring because I had the good sense to decide to exercise in an attempt to decrease the size of my fat ass. Feel free to send flowers and chocolates. It’s all better now though.

I came up with a brilliant business idea which I think will be tre’s cool and make us a lot of money (I have a partner) and I’m working on the website now.

And…let’s see what else? Oh yeah, I’m in love and going to be moving to the east coast soon.

Okay, that’s about it.

Have a great Monday.

  1. I grew up on the east coast (New Brunswick, Canada). Don’t get high off the salt water air. Or do, and then write like mad while you’re tripping.

    You always have such interesting advice… I’ll probably just write like mad, though – salt water or no. πŸ˜‰


  2. East Coast???????????

    Gosh, I’m seeing someone getting closer to pay their bar debt off! Good thing you have that new business idea!

    I’m excited about everything you wrote about, but I’m jumping at the fact that we can have an increased “east coast blogger meeting”.


    Haha Spaz, you and your fuzzy math. No winner of bets has been determined as far as I can tell so maybe you are the one with the bar tab to pay. πŸ˜‰

    Yes, it is possible we could arrange an east coast blogger meet. You never know. Don’t have a firm date yet – but you’ll be on the short list, don’t worry.



  3. hahahaa! love these types of entries.
    you’re in loooove too? who woulda thunk it? so i dont have to keep my lips zipped anymore?!! yes! you’re so east coast, anne. you’ll love it.

    im wondering about the business/website though. always gotta be so vague, don’t ya πŸ˜‰

    Hey Red – private email sent. Yup, I will be rather vague on the blog about things – an effort on my part to keep my private life, private, you know? πŸ˜‰



  4. ~~Oh yeah, I’m in love and going to be moving to the east coast soon.~~

    Hi Annieo.

    How wonderful.Thats the best news ever. I’m not to sure where North is so I’m a bit confused as where the east is.

    Happy love sweetheart and a very happy life. Can we have a little party to celebrate love and moves.

    I’ve missed you to but blogs and blogging still remain and so does freindship and love.

    Ouch ! Kellys operation sounds HUGE but thank God she’ll be able to wear beautiful hats. Love to your great friend Kelly.Hey Annieo will she be able to wear wigs to, hope so.

    A buisness deal which will make you lots of money. YAY!!

    Mucho Loveo Annieo

    Hey Di,
    It will be more on the side of the country where Joan and Teeni live – does that help? LOL, don’t think Kelly will need wigs, she has a fine head of hair but you never know – she’s a pistol. Yup, life does seem happy, doesn’t it?



  5. Who the? What the? I was just hit by a few mac trucks. Am I the only one that feels a bit disoriented. I was just happy to hear about your friend’s recovery, her upcoming surgery (she will be in my prayers), the song- great song, never heard that and was tapn’ my toe listening to the lyrics, watching the vid and then I got down to:
    WHAaaaaa? It was all, soup, hamstring, fat ass, and oh yeah, I’m in love and moving? Annie, you are the biggest tease I have ever met in my life. I love that about you! Thanks for sharing a song I needed to hear today, I am glad to be alive. *I’m tearing up* – I’m happy for you too !!! Love xoxoxxo

    Hey Bella,
    Sorry for the mac trucks but you know…it’s just how I am. πŸ˜‰ Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it. πŸ˜‰


  6. Hi Annie,

    Welcome back. I just ate a chocolate bar, even though I didn’t want it, in your honor.

    the Grit

    Hey Grit,
    Now that’s what I call a real friend – someone who will eat chocolate in my honor, despite personal preferences. πŸ˜‰ Tanks, buddy.


  7. I love how you just slipped that last little “oh by the way” in there! Not that I hadn’t already concluded there was a man involved in your recent absences (it’s always a man, isn’t it?). Wonderful news all around. Hugs to you and Kelly.

    Hey 30! You liked that, eh? πŸ˜† I can be a wiley wabbit sometimes. Yup, it always is, isn’t it?

    I’ll pass the good wishes on to Kelly. Thanks.


  8. You are moving towards me? I’m jumping up and down (well, not really but I’m thinking about it). And to top it all off your in love? My goodness, I get a tooth pulled and the whole world changes. When is all this happening? Details, Please?

    Hey Joanie,
    Not divulgiving details on the blog here – but it is possible that meeting up with you wild and crazy girls would be ever so much easier in the future. Yeah, it could happen. πŸ˜‰


  9. ~whip lash~ Wha??? Chicken soup recipe perfected? Sayitaintso. πŸ˜‰

    Yep, perfect Chicken vegetable soup. It is so, sorry if that hurts. πŸ˜‰


  10. Oh you thought that was my REAL comment (above)??? HA!

    EAST COAST???????????? When did THAT happen??? Hellloooo just e-mailed you two days ago, no mention of this…just sayin.

    Sorry if that shocked you but honestly, I’ve been thinking of leaving California for a while now, for many reasons. So…and then of course the extra motivation doesn’t hurt. πŸ˜‰


  11. East Coast? AND in love? So cool, Annie! I wonder if your east will be close to my east – Hope so πŸ™‚

    Chicken soup or Chocolate… Hmm… tough decision – NOT! You’re in love, you’re allowed to be confused.

    Hey, don’t worry about your ‘padded posterior’ too much, he loves YOU!

    So happy for you,

    P.S. So glad your friend is feeling better and has maintained her sense of humor through everything, too.

    Hey Debs!
    Let me say a meet up would certainly be possible. Confused? Ah, that would be me. πŸ™‚ Yeah, my friend Kelly is a good girl – one of the toughest women I know and I mean that in a very good way.



  12. Oooo I had a feeling you had something going on in the lurv department.

    This sounds like such an exciting time to be you!! Enjoy every second of it πŸ™‚

    Thanks, Bettina, I shall. πŸ˜‰


  13. ??????????????? Coming to this side of the continent, are you? That is abso-freaking-lutely awesome! Oh, Annie, we have to get together with Joan and CuriousC and whoever else is out this way! Yippee! I’m so excited and totally floored. How did you have the time to fall in love when you’ve been so busy writing and starting a business and blogging and all? Well, no matter. I’m just so very happy and excited for you and excited and happy for the East Coast too! If you can say more, I’d love to hear it in an email. I’d also love that recipe!!!!!!!!

    Hey Teens,
    A-yup – private email sent.


  14. In love and moving? Aren’t you a sly fox! How fun for you, and how exciting for your friend to get her head, well, back again. Gosh, accidents are so darn scary … I feel bad for her!

    Me, sly fox. Surely you jest. πŸ˜‰ Yes my friend will be overjoyed to be reunited with her skull – she has really been missing it for a while. Don’t feel bad for her, just send her some good vibes – she’s a very strong and brave woman – I don’t think I could have done what she’s done. She has no idea how amazing she is. Truly.


  15. All the really important news you left till the end as a footnote. Hmmm, makes me wonder. Will we hear more about it?


    Well, I suppose it depends on what you would consider important news…it was all important to me. πŸ˜‰ You probably won’t hear a whole lot more – I like to try to keep my private life pretty private. Sowwy. πŸ˜‰


  16. It is a great little tune and it’s really good to hear that your friend is doing well.

    It really is a toe tapper, eh? Yup, she’s doing great. Thanks, buddy.


  17. Now that’s just mean, Annie. I won’t need Depends for a few more weeks at least. If you wanted to send me large quantities of wine to calm me down that would be completely acceptable.

    Hey Honey, I’d love to send you wine if I had the time. Rain check? πŸ˜‰


  18. Well saying you keep your private life private is quite the understatement dontcha think?

    Have I said congratulations yet? Yeah probably not. I’ll bet back when I get some manners.

    Otay, wise guy… πŸ˜†


  19. Now that’s what I call an update. πŸ˜‰ I can feel the excitement in your words.

    Hey Mrs. V,
    Well, I figure if you’re going to do an update then it should be a good one, eh? Thanks.


  20. I second the whiplash comment… holy mackeral – I can understand (sorta) the being in luv thing, but the MOVE too?!!! Dang, my neck hurts!

    Thrilled for you! πŸ™‚


    Jeez you guys and your whiplash phenom – gotta watch that stuff, otay? Thanks, me too. πŸ™‚
