All Day Mental Moment – Whee!!!


Today’s Music: Tori Amos – Big Wheel

WOOHOO!!! It’s time for a Mental Moment!
But this one isn’t just a moment – it lasts a whole day. And beyond, even!

Doin’ the happy birthday dance!


Maybe you’ve seen mental moments before. Maybe you’re thinking a proper mental moment should be all Veggie Tales and Batman.
Or maybe you just think Batman is hot.
Ladies?

But this isn’t that kind of Mental Moment. It’s a 24 hour Mental Moment! But you already knew that. Because you saw above where is says ALL DAY.

Ok, maybe you like the frivolous ramblings here. But maybe you like these moments with (3/7) more substantial thoughts, with substance and eloquence?

There, satisfied? Of course you are. Now before I get to the point, why don’t you grab yourself a cup of coffee and a donut? I’ll wait…

There, all set? Have you figured it out yet?
You did?
Did the clue in the title help you out?
GREAT!!!

Then you realize that we’re celebrating the anniversary of another trip around the sun for Lizzie Cracked, the Chief Articulator of Running Naked With Scissors! Whee!!!
That’s right – HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIZZIE!!!, one of the coolest bloggers people on the planet!

But you already knew how cool she is. Over the last year, you’ve seen her brave posts about living as a bipolar, about raising kids on her own, about dealing with some truly ridiculous people who have a paucity of nice bones in their bodies.
You’ve seen her overcome challenges, embrace differences, and you’ve probably come to realize, like I have, that people are just people, and when you meet a good on (like Lizzie), well, that’s worth celebrating.
Even if they do occasionally torture you with Veggie Tales.

And it is my honor, and my privilege to call her a friend and wish her a happy birthday.
The world is a better place with her in it.

So join us in celebrating, with a scavenger hunt! Somewhere in this post is a clue in italics! and a number!
So go to the other blogs that are celebrating. Find all the words and put them in order in front of “wordpress.com” and go check out Lizzie’s birthday site, and wish her a Ridiculously Happy Birthday!!!

The rest of the clues are hidden here:
Red
Ginger
Linda
Buddha Kat
GingerFightBack
Writer Wannabe 763

They all put a lot of effort into making a great birthday treat for Lizzie. I know you’ll like them all!
But for those of you feeling really lazy, I suppose you can go right to the birthday site

And have a great day. Whatever your mental state.

The Splendiferous Soliliquation of a Selebratory Sirthday


Today’s Music: The Beach Boys – Good Vibrations

There are five letters in the name Sandy. Each of those letters encompasses a world of wonder about a fantastic blogger named (coincidentally) sandylikeabeach.

To celebrate sandylikeabeach’s birthday, I was going to write in her style of the Stream of Cosciousness Sentence.
But it would be a sad effort compared to the mistress of it.
So instead, I’m going to pick a letter of her name: S. because that’s where it all Starts.
Sandylikeabeach was one of the first bloggers I met when I started. And I can’t tell you how lucky I was. Right from the beginning, I could see she could be both Silly and Serious (sort of), Sublime and Supportive.

But there’s so much more to it than that. Sandy’s posts range far and wide (and wide and far), telling about her Steps on the dance floor, or her creative mischievous streak where she encourages you to Steal. (But in a playful way, so no one does jail time.)


If she isn’t where you expect, she might be out on the Sea, paddling away, or maybe passing a week just Sitting in someone’s house.

As for me, I’d just like to wish her a happy birthday, and think she’s relaxing with a nice drink, Sleeping on a beach that is sandyasablogger.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SANDY!!!

P.S. – The adverbial/adjectival story continues with the rest of her name!!! (You didn’t think it could all be contained in one post, did you?!?)

The Party Goes On at Kayjai’s!!!

And catch the whole thing!!!
S ______A ______N ______D ______Y

Happy Birthday, ODNT!


Today’s Music: Rick Springrfield – Don’t Talk To Strangers
Note on Today’s Music: Because she really loves this stuff.
Another note: According to Mags did a great post(read as: saner and more coherent than mine) for the birthday girl. You should all check it out here.

I smell cake. Or is it cheese? CHEESECAKE!!!


You started your blog with a simple request,
About something you wanted to get off…on your chest.
You took us to meet the doctors who knew,
told us about a surgeon who made one out of two.
But then, something else came up.

With your usual wit and all of your humor
you told us that you had a tumor.
While you searched for the perfect breast answer,
It turned out that it wasn’t cancer.
And that was a great relief.

Since then, you showed us the meaning of chagrin.
Shared a letter to your bff,
Mr. Alec Baldwin.
Introduced us to Milo the cat,
Wrote some of this and some of that.
And the most embarrassing Disney story ever.

It’s almost a year since you set up online –
What a year, and how!
Told tales of naked mole rats
And you’ve got your own cow!
Which really only leaves me
One more thing to say:
To Old Dog New Tits,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

And many more wonderful years to follow.

While this ode in your honor
doesn’t come with cheese or a hamster,
In closing, there’s a question
for which we’d all like an answer…

saline or silicone?

Happiest of birthdays, Michele, and keep on rockin! I’ll keep following your story wherever you decide to take us!
