Hello World!

So how come when everyone else in bloggland calls out to lurkers they get gads of posts.... but I don't?
I have lurkers from all around the world. Obviously by now they have a pretty good grasp of the English language or they wouldn't be hanging around here - now would they?
Just type an anonymous comment and sign it with a moniker or an initial. Either that or I will start to hunt you down by IP address and show up on your doorstep with year old Christmas cake - that I will make you eat.
At some point in the near future I have considered placing the blog "underground". Which is to say that I am maybe going to make it private. Not because I don't want you guys to visit - cuz I really do - but because there are certain people in the world I don't want privy to the goings on here. I'm not sure that they are - but I'm also not sure that they aren't. So.... one day I may ask for your emails. Or you may take note of mine. If I add you to the list - it means you can visit. Otherwise - no more funnygirl for you! So at least say hullo while you have the chance...

AND NOW FOR YOUR AMUSEMENT
Yesterday I was on the treadmill and I was listening to the radio with my earphones in. A particularly jaunty version of Frosty the Snowman came on. I guess I must have been overcome with Christmas spirit - I caught myself singing it outloud"ish". Much to the amusement of those around me. Course, they already know I'm "special" - they see me enough that it's hard to avoid that obvious fact. I had this vision that if I sounded like I meant it enough - everyone in the row of 20 or so treadmills would join in and it would be like a scene from a musical. Sadly, it didn't go quite like that. But it's okay.... I've got exactly 2 weeks to get these duds into the Christmas spirit. I think I'll start wearing my elf costume to the gym. That will definitely help. I don't suppose it would be the appropriate place to bring Christmas cookies...maybe they should come up with a Christmas power bar for just such an occasion. I think I'm onto something here.

It had nothing to do with the vodka in your water bottle.

I have lurkers, too, mostly with proxy servers so I won't know that they're friends of the Eternal Nemesis. Oh well. If you go underground, I hope I'm invited!

elizabeth said...

Kat! Could you imagine?! My old bosses ex wife used to do that. I can just picture myself vomiting all over the trainer.

Joe - Yes. Course you are!

i am the diva said...

Glugster said...

Hullo!!!

Maybe you should post a picture of you in your elf costume. That way you'll even get the lurkers into the Christmas spirit!

elizabeth said...

Diva - Too bad we couldn't play like a whack a mole game with em...

Glugster - Hallo! Great idea... I'll get right on that... lol

Melanie said...

power bars in the shape of a candy cane or a wreath? Yea. with little candied prunes :wink:

i think that you should wear an elf costume to the gym. I bet you could find a great pair of red striped tights and some green leotard with a skirt. Now the hat may be tooo much for sweatin to the carols, but..

giggles.

elizabeth said...

Melanie - ew. Prunes. SHIVER.

Yeah - the hat might put it over the top, lol.

KAYLEE said...

wait i am gunna see yopu in a elf suit? hAHAHAha!

Cheezy said...

Yes, I've got a few 'long time listeners - first time callers'; no, actually that's not right, I kinda mean 'no time callers' but that sounds rubbish...

It's too early... need another coffee... :-/

Anyway, it'd be cool if they all decided to comment at once, but then again, if they did, I guess they wouldn't be 'lurkers'...

elizabeth said...

Kaylee - yes at some point...

Cheezy - good point...
