First, I am thrilled that I'm now back in the good graces of my ad service - BlogHer. See, they feature the posts that they like right underneath the banner. Truthfully, some of the posts that they feature are L-A-M-E but that might be because I don't have the same taste as other people. I've also found some great authors from time to time that I've added to my ever increasing google reader.
So look- look under that ad right now (it'll likely change soon) and notice that it has "Note to all single guys" underneath it. THAT IS MY POST. That means that people that are bored at work are more likely to stumble across my blog and read that post. Somehow, I think it also might be for ladies that read it thinking that this would be some long in depth post - likely to make you think. I can't help but feel that they are likely to be disappointed with what they find.
Anyway, they used to "feature" me kind of often - but nothing for the last several months. I even tried showering, but to no avail. So whatever I did or didn't do, I'm thankful.
Secondly, I'm bummed that I am an idiot. Before you hit "add comment" to write something like "Yeah, Anne, we know...but we love you anyway" let me clarify. In my quirky me post, I wrote that I have issues with the word potato. It needs an 'e.' Maybe it's because my name has a silent 'e' on it - so I think many words need an extra 'e.' Or maybe it's because I have a brain tumor and can't re-learn how to spell words. I DON'T KNOWE.
Anyway, today, I was catching up on my reader and decided to comment on Charlie Hill's blog (which is typically a funny twist on weight loss efforts) - Back to the Fridge. His writing is very funny and I'm not just saying that because he can quote "The Princess Bride" like no one else I've ever been around. I'm saying that because he has an 'e' on the end of his name too.
In the my comment on his post for today I totally spelled potato with an 'e' and then hit publish. Only while re-reading it did I notice my typo. And then commented again where I tried to convince people that that's how we spell it in Colorado. I even added "Look it up." Which is a great tool I've learned when you want to prove your point but figure that the people reading it might not take the time to do so. Not that Charlie's readers are lazy.
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, I am an idiot. Also, I heart BlogHer again.
