Blogaversary Questions - Set #4

Here's the next-to-the-last round of questions!

Debbie asked this question:
I know everybody worries about blogging and work, what about blogging and family? Does most of your family know about (and/or read) the blog or not? Is there anybody you hope won't find/read it?

My family is aware of my blogging. Most of them don't have a clue what a blog even is and they all just nod politely, but then there's my aunt and cousin who read it regularly, my sister who pops in when it's slow at work and my mom who reads it, but would never admit it.

As far as I know, my stepdad - A PASTOR - does not read my blog. I think this is largely because my mother won't give him the address. I thought about giving it to him behind her back, but if it bugs her that much I guess I won't freak her out. I really have cleaned up the language around here and haven't used the f-word in a lonnnnng time, so I think it's safe for Pops to read. I'll leave that up to Mom, though. He has read some things I have written, so I think eventually the curiosity will get the best of him and he'll mosey on over, as my mother cringes in the corner.

I really don't have anyone that I don't want to read the blog. Heck, I wish more did! I love doing what I do, think I'm fairly good at it and just knowing that when people talk about me they start the conversation with, "You gotta check out this blog! Every time I read it I squirt coffee/milk/tea/soda out my nose!" That right there makes me utterly ecstatic. I love knowing that your nasal passages are dampened frequently because of me, Constant Reader.

Paul used to be really bothered by the fact that I'm pretty much a tell-all kind of blogger. But I really do try to keep it real, keep it funny when I can and stay as true to the original story as I possibly can.

Yes, people, my life really is this funny. It's great to be me.


Sam asked:
Does the carpet match the drapes?

You know, as much as I love looking nice and feeling pretty, I just haven't felt compelled to highlight and layer my uhm......carpet. So no, they don't match.


Nadine Hightower asked:
Vacations....what is your favorite vacation destination and why?

Hands down, Disney World. You can read a long post - with pictures! - here. Pretty much all posts in December 2006/January 2007 mentioned Disney World somewhere in them.

It it every bit as magical as I expected it to be and I have every intention of living there.

Okay, not really. The humidity is worse than Oklahumid there. But still, a visit every week would be sufficient.

I mean, there are literally days I wake up and think, "I need Disney World." Not "I WANT Disney World" - no, I NEED it. I'm a Disney World addict. Do they have meetings for that?


The final installment is next!

Thank you for answering my question. Now I can rest easy knowing that you do not go to the trouble of layering and highlighting the carpet. I did, however, almost pee myself reading your answer. Thanks!

We....the people
