So, I know we’re well into 2013 now, but just this week, I got my WordPress report on traffic, etc. Lots of items were fairly expected, but I wanted to give a special thanks and shout-out to my two readers who commented the most in 2012: Truffles8761 and Christine G. And, not only did they comment the most, but both of them regularly made me giggle-snort with their funniness.
So, ladies, to thank you, I’d like to send you a shirt: a mens style or womens style standard t-shirt, $16.60 value. Email me with your choice, size, and address! And thank you so much for all your comments!
And thank you, everyone, for making me laugh this week in the comments, too. When folks say, “Your blog is funny, but OMG the comments!” I always whole-heartedly agree.
Here are some of your gems for the week.
We make a lot of penis jokes around here, but leave it to a dude to toe the line. Here’s a comment from the Marshmallow Caramel Popcorn post:
Nick Tallent • You know, I could probably eat and enjoy this if it wasn’t for the fact that the picture looks like they are advertising semen-corn, and I’m sorry, but that stuff doesn’t belong in my mouth. Glad you had the courage to try it, though!
Thanks Nick, really. Our imaginations run wild.
And, as always, I’m proud and honored to provide life-changing services to my readers…
EENK • We called them old maids growing up as well, I didn’t get the “unpopped” thing until today…
Rebecca Amos • I feel like an idiot because I still didn’t get it at the end…about five minutes after reading this it finally clicked hahaa
Many thanks to you all for making me feel better about my stupid injury (which I told you about in my Sweet Standard post) with stories about your stupid injuries. Misery loves company, and apparently I am not alone.
Jocelyn Sauter • I’m with you on the sadness of not having a cool story to go with an injury. I needed to have knee surgery after playing a game of solitaire. True story. Tore my miniscus while sitting at my dining room table playing card game by myself. When I went to the hospital because I couldn’t straighten my leg and could only crab walk up and down the steps, the doctor told me I was faking it. Felt pretty good a week later to be all “Boom stupid doctor who shouldn’t be a doctor at all, I NEED SURGERY.” Never has needing surgery felt so gratifying… especially since I got it doing what people do in nursing homes. I was 21.
And, yes, sometimes I do follow the directions:
Ethne @ www.wom-mom.com • Am I to take it that you followed the directions EXACTLY right and the directions failed you, not the other way around? This is insane! Absolute crapsanity! In your time of need, too. I would expect this from Pinterest, but not from Marie Claire.
Also, here’s a tip from my lovely bartender friend (and fellow romance author) about honey in cocktails:
Kaylee • I’ve found the trick to using honey in cocktails is to make honey simple syrup first – equal parts honey and water, heated until the honey dissolves into the water. This keeps the honey from becoming a ‘chilled mass of snot.’
Another of my fellow romance authors took the high road on the Vulgarity post:
Gina Lamm • I’m sincerely sorry for this… YOU JUST SAID BUTT FUCK!!! LOLOL!!! *slinks away*
You see why I’m friends with these people now, right?
And remember how I said we like penis jokes here? We can even make penis jokes in an innocent post about giant bubbles.
Beth Caudill • You’ll notice in the upper picture, he’s using a much larger wand. He isn’t using a standard wand so I wouldn’t compare the two. I think your bubbles are just fine.
(Beth is also a fellow romance author, BTW. They took over the comments this week!) And the response:
lemon floor wax • I had a feeling this would be a discussion about wand size.
Thank you all again for your lovely, insightful, penis-jokey comments. Smoochies to all of you!
