Some Forkin' Fun

My two year bloggy anniversary is coming up, as you can see by the nifty little widget on my sidebar. Yep, it's been two years since ThoughtfulMom suggested I try blogging at Homeschool Blogger, instead of Yahoo360.

I've met some awesome people who have become friends. Friends that I would gladly add to my facebook list. So, 2 years have to be marked by ... something.

This is an important occasion...I mean, not as important as some things going on ... and certainly not as eye opening as others.

*blankly stares at that last line*
Okay - it's not important at all.

I've been trying to figure out what in the world I should give away - because I want to celebrate.
So that means, in the blog o'sphere, that I get to give away something.

I want it to be great.
I want it to be awesome.
I want it to come from my comfy little heart..
I thought about painting something and I could not think of anything to paint.
I thought about crafting something and the same problem arose.

So -- what else can I give away??
Then I got an ingenious idea.

Or maybe it's just absurd.

There's really only one thing that would work...
That's right.
It's the only thing that makes sense...

To me...and probably to Toby and CoffeeMom, too (It might not make sense to you -- but you can read the start of all this here.)

I fully intend to throw in some chocolate and/or something school related, since I'm in the midst of school start-up. It won't just be the forks. :-) honest.

So -- if you think you might want to celebrate with me, leave me a comment and let me know.
On my blog-o-versary, we'll pull your name out of a hat - or maybe do the random-number-generator thing.

If you win, I'll mail you my celebratory forks and whatever I manage to collect.

If you don't want to be put in the random drawing, but want to tell me how absurd this all is, that's fine, too. I don't mind a bit.

Aaaaw, thanks for the link love :) You are so sweet!

Oh! Don't enter me to any contest, I've got plenty of absurd things going on here. But congrats on your 2nd blogo-versary! I love when I see your blog come up on my reader - I know I'm in for a treat of all kinds.

Now, would they be the type to eat or the type to plant?

Either way, count me in. Congratulations on the blogoversary. And I hope to call you friend. :D

Two years? Is that all? Wow!

Also, I've decided that I'd rather be forked than papered. Though slightly more dangerous if one should lose their balance, it's much easier to clean up. AND, it makes no difference if it rains that night.

If you can tell me how to clean up my screen name so I'm not out there in the big web posting as A&EMom instead of the A&EMom I had planned to be I'll send YOU chocolate!

A&EMom said...

Now I just look ridiculous. It cleaned it up in the body but not in the heading - how strange...

Offer's still on the table.

you are such a hoot!

I'm weird enough to appreciate it, so add me to the drawing. Just think, if I win, you can save on shipping. lol

I remember when the fork thing started... If you are mailing to Canada, count me in. If not, I can just go buy some forks...sniff. Just joking. Great idea. I want a t shirt like the button in this post- not from you, I am just saying, that a t shirt like that would be appropriate for my sense of humor.

Katie said...

Oh you KNOW I remember the forks! I could never forget :-)
Happy Blogiversary! I guess my two years is up too- I'll have to check when it was...

you are certifiable. And I don't need to be in your drawing seeing as my hubby brings home plastic forks en masse.
Congrats on your anniversary!!
