So, it seems people actually want me to blog about them! It all started with BlogPaul “suggesting” in my comments that I blog about him, and then sending me a “friendly” reminder email a few days later that he had yet to see a blog post on my blog about him. I think he was really just fishing for some cute, single, potentially datable Christian girls (and let me just clarify this time that any interested parties should be OVER 18,) but it’s not like I actually HAVE a following of this type. Still, I caved to the pressure and it was fun to blog about him. I didn’t really think anyone else would really want me to blog about them, but apparently you guys DO want me to write about you! I got a bunch of requests, so this little gimmick could carry out for a few months. Who knows, maybe it’ll become my “thing” and it’ll be all the rage to get blogged about at Terri Terri. (Yeah, right!)
“Snowman” was the first person to raise a hand and say, “Pick me! Pick me! Blog about ME!” (Ok, so I may be exaggerating the level of enthusiasm just a bit. It was more like, “You can blog me if you want.” Hey, this thing is never going to take off as THE thing to do in blogland if I don’t hype it a little!)
“Snowman” is actually not a snowman at all, and for that matter, not a man either. She has a funny, sarcastic blog called I Eat Snowman Poop. I came across Snowman’s blog around the time I started writing my own blog, and I continued to visit because she always makes me laugh. She’s got a very irreverent sense of humor and isn’t afraid to use it. I love the way she tells it like it is. If someone ticks her off, for instance, the incompetent employees at Walmart, or stupid people at the gas station, or DELL, she doesn’t hesitate to give them a fitting label. “Effers.”(I can’t actually bring myself to spell out the real word because this IS, after all a PG rated blog. But Snowman does it with flair!) If you tick off the Snowman, you are an EFFER! Watch out. Snowman is not one to be messed with!
When Snowman had problems with her Dell laptop, she described in painful detail via blog posts, how difficult it was trying to deal with Dell’s customer service reps. Did you know that Dell has people whose job it is to scour the internet looking for evidence of unhappy customers and potential bad publicity? Those people then go out and try to remedy the situation and offer assistance. I didn’t know this until “Neil” showed up in Snowman’s blog comments, in an attempt to defend Dell’s reputation and right the wrongs that Snowman felt had been done. Neil was pretty cool and became a regular reader and commenter for a while. He was actually spared the label of “effer” because he was funny and kind of helpful. He’s gone now. Probably too busy stalking the blogs of other Dell bashers. (We miss you, Neil. And by the way? We never believed your real name was Neil. It’s Achmed, isn’t it? Be honest!)
More recently, we were able to follow Snowman’s pregnancy through her blog posts (complete with tales of high blood pressure, cankles and pee-pee jugs in the refrigerator.) A few months ago, the miraculous day arrived and Aidan Wesley made his grand entrance in the world. He had us all scared for a few weeks while he got some breathing and feeding issues figured out….
But as you can see here, everything turned out fine and he’s an adorable little guy! (Actually, this picture earned him the nickname, Big Man! Cuz he is such a big guy! Look at him! Aren’t you just melting from the cuteness???)
Yes, honey. I’m sure many of us would agree with you on this one.
Snowman cracks me up when she adds captions such as this to her flickr photos: “These were the ducks that were doing the nasty right outside my window. Fly a mile from water just to get it on in my yard.”
Hmmm… I seem to recall there was a problem with Japanese beetles “gettin’ it on” and having beetle sex all over Snowman’s yard this summer too. Maybe there’s some kind of aphrodisiac growing in her yard. This COULD explain why Snowman and her hubby seem to get along so well!
You didn’t really think we were done with Aidan yet, did you? That’s right Aidan. I dig you!
There is way more fun, sarcasm and baby cuteness over at Snowman’s blog so go pay her a visit.
Up next, I’ll be blogging Reggie, the king of vacationing, so check in next week for some virtual fun and relaxation! I’ll make the margaritas!
And remember: If you want to get blogged by me, leave your request in the comments. (Hey, I should give away t-shirts! “I got blogged by Terri.” I’ll work on that….riiiiight….)
