Internet Icon I Am

I’m famous! I’m famous!Well, “famous” could be an “exaggeration”, even though Holly does “constantly” refer to me as an “Internet Icon” because of all my “connections” on “here”.

Anyways- one of my “favorite” blogs is The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks. (“blog” on my list)

People spot the unnecessary use of quotation marks, take pics and submit them to the blog for everyone to ridicule and debate. Who wouldn’t love that?

So a couple of months ago we kidnapped our friend Sarah who’s husband had just been deployed to Iraq, and took her to Marble Slab. As we were walking in, I saw the sign on the door and "had" to take a picture. I submitted it "instantly" but they are totally "backlogged" (obviously because people don’t know how to "properly" use quotations) so mine was just posted this "weekend".
"Go check it out!"

glad to have not been hacked

Blonde Moment #4163:

This morning I couldn’t find my keys.

I searched and searched and searched.

Suddenly, I had a sinking feeling in my stomach.

I slowly walked toward my front door...

Sure enough, when I opened it- there they were... the outside lock.


In a door that is on a path that EVERYONE walks by.

Apparently Colorado Springs is safer than I thought.

Not that I hope to make a habit of this.

Iron sharpens Iron

Yesterday I got a FANTASTIC gift in the mail.

My Aunt Debbie had sent me a package.

I opened it up, and of course, being the grownup I now am- read the card that was on top BEFORE looking at what was under the tissue paper.

She said she looked for one that was more authentic…but couldn’t find one, but she wanted me to have my own, like Alice Paul’s, to wear for the election!

(And since I know EVERYONE keeps up with history AND my previous blog entry’s…I know everyone else KNOWS that Alice led the Iron Jawed Angels in the battle for giving women the right to vote!! AND that Iron Jawed Angels is one of my most favorite movies ever! )

So I excitedly opened it up knowing what had to be inside…and saw that she sent me a fabulous Alice Paul Tribute Hat to wear of my very own.

Even though I technically early voted on Friday (and stood in line for 2 ½ hours to do so!) I ABSOLUTELY busted my hat out today….to pay tribute to the amazing woman who paved the way so that I could have the right to make my voice heard.
