Has It Been A Week Already?

Sheesh! I don't even have any dramatic news to report. I should really be more thoughtful of my readers as I'm sure an extended absence leaves you wondering what horrifying event I've experienced as of late.

Thankfully, I can report - none. I've just been busy with work. (I know, can you believe I'm actually needing to do work at my job instead of type posts? To be fair, I write them on my lunch break or when I'm waiting for my computer to finish doing something, but still, work? Really?) And Tweeting too much. I was so afraid of Twitter, and Julia at Work, Wife, Mom...Life! got me over it, and now - it's as bad as my initial Facebook addiction. And I'm hoping it will slow to that level of obsession soon, because I'm really not getting anything productive done having Tweetdeck running all day. But it does make the time go by quickly!

Anyway, I have some exciting news. Though I've been blogging for a few years, I hadn't really entered the blogosphere per se until this fall when I started Kludgy Mom's Back 2 School/Back 2 Blogging and discovered that there are people on the other side of these posts. It's like the newspaper's editor but so much more personal and the contact is real and your letter isn't stuck in an inbox with 500 other letters that will get previewed and pitched before even making it to the actual editor's desk.

Point being, once I swallowed the red pill, I found a whole new world. And in this world, I've met and most recently bonded with KLZ from Taming Insanity. We share a love of "How I Met Your Mother" and "Austin Powers," and though we disagree on the importance of "War Games" in Matthew Broderick's filmography and whether or not eggnog is a good holiday tradition, we've helped each other out in contests and #FF. So when KLZ asked if I wanted to do a blog swap, I was honored. Stay tuned - I'll be having my first ever guest poster here at Midwest "Mom"ments in the next week.

Aw, thanks! I do love me some Ferris. Best HIMYM scene was the Blitz episode when they said Ted sang "Danke Shoen" in the Thanksgiving Day parade, and Ted said, "Chick, chick-a-chick-ahh."

I think I should say I'm honored that I helped you take the red pill? :) LOL.

Shhh...

Don't tell KLZ, but I'm totally with you on War Games.

Bueller wouldn't have been the same without Broderick cutting his teeth on that film.

Yes, Bueller all the way!

Also? KLZ told me she thinks you're a sweetheart.

So there. :)

Whenever I was home sick from school, I watched movies all day. Usually "Stand By Me", "Princess Bride", sometimes "Heathers", but always, always, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

Blushing! Thanks, Liz. :)
