...you sit down to write a blog post, certain that each word will fall from your mind perfectly formed into a shining orb of literary perfection?
Darn, I was hoping you could help me with that because this post is just not working out like that so far for me.
Let me try again.
You know how sometimes you know exactly what you want to say but somewhere between brain and fingertips on keyboard there is a heinous disconnect that leaves you stuttering and weak and unable to get anything more onto paper than "ummm.... I got nothing"?
Darn again. Cuz that's what is happening to me here right now and I was hoping to find some solidarity among fellow bloggers.
Let me try again....
You know how sometimes someone does something really nice for you like featuring your blog (you can click on that pretty pink tickled pink button below to see!) and you want to say thank you in an eloquent way so that when people visit your blog for the first time are all impressed and say, "Wow, I love that blog, I will have to follow along because, seriously, that girl really seems capable of avoid a heinous disconnect between brain and fingertips and writes words that effortlessly form themselves into a shining orb of literary perfection"?
Yea. That's so not happening here...
I feel bad cheating you like this.
I feel bad that there is no way possible you will be tickled pink by this post.
Holly! I'm sorry! I'm sorry I let you down! I really, really wanted to do the shining orb thing and not the heinous disconnect thing.
Perhaps I can redeem this post by sharing something obscure and thought provoking.
Yea, yea. That's it.
Let me think.
OK, I've got it.
Who's there !
Holly who ?
Hollylujah ! It's Holly's Tickled Pink post!
Ummm.... did you get it? HollyLUjah! Holly? Ummm...
So yea. I'm leaving now.
I need to rest up because I'm sure many of you will be asking me to be a featured blogger for you soon on the strength of this incredible post.
And I need to be prepared.
And do you know the origin of the phrase "tickled pink"? Google told me that this phrase means"To be delighted and refers to the fact that when some people are really excited they literally change colour, and their skin becomes quite pink because the blood vessels dilate and more blood flows close to the skin, and we appear redder".
Do you know that can actually happen, too, when you are embarrassed over a blog post? Yea. It's true. I can prove it!
Holly? Holly? I hope I didn't ummm... tickle you pink too much with this post.
And if you haven't ever visited Holly's blog at 504 Main before please go there and say hi. Just click here. I met Holly almost as soon as I started blogging and was all star-struck because she has a published book on weddings and knows a whole bunch of stars and she is just plain fun and cool. In a "shining orb" kinda way. And don't be afraid. She mostly tells you about normal people and fun things to do. This particular "heinous disconnect" featured blog is just an anomaly. Trust me.
Even if you hang around longer I am not going to say anything else silly and look like even more of a dork.
