And gawking at the gorgeousness of this blog.

I want to eat it, it’s so yummy and orangey and bubbly what with the retro dots and all.

Joelle, THANK YOU again! And Emily! And Christine – who got hitched today, hooray! And Bob! And Eve! And Joz! And Lomara! And the people who keep on reading and commenting! (I have genuine READERS?!?)

You guys have all been so kind and wonderful and supportive of me. I'm already starting to get all misty eyed at the prospect of having a measly 364 days left. At the same time I'm not even used to the idea of this yet! Don’t worry: it will probably hit me on Day 365. I’ve always been a bit slow on the uptake like that.

The boy sure is happy, because apart from me letting out the occasional delayed shriek of joy and disbelief (“Sweetie, sweetie! Come loooooooooooook! I have another comment!” Followed by hysterical but joyous laughter), all is much quieter than usual here at the abode.

Oh, except, the boy has started to address me as: “Your Royal Blogness.” Personally I think it should be “Your Royal Bloggerness,” but I’m still too happy to dispute him just yet, so I’ll let it slide for now.

I certainly FEEL like Bloggerati royalty, with the way I'm being spoiled rotten like this...

A person who truly appreciates it as much as you have though, really does deserve it, if only judging from that aspect, not to mention all the wonderful writing I am sure you submitted. I think your boy is very cute as well. And don't worry about a year from now, and even when it does all end, you can surely renew the whole sha-bang easily enough.

Darlin, it's not like you have to stop blogging in a year. You just renew the domain (about $7) and then see how much hosting will cost. Hosting is relatively cheap, usually. And your current host is pretty darn cool. ;-)

hey there red! i'm so glad to finally have a minute to stop by, i was so excited to read all the entries emily sent over. i have to admit that the very second you started giving instructions on how to wolf whistle i was trying it out. sadly, nothing yet, but then again, i can't whistle normally. i'll let you know if i ever manage to figure it out.

cheers!

Red,

Definitely don't feel like you're going to have to give this up after 364 more days! Maybe somebody will pick you up! That's what happened to me! I think that you will find bloggers are quite open and inviting (for the most part). Just keep doing what you're doing! :)

"and orangey" OMG I was scared. I'm so glad you said that.

OK. why? Huh?

I don't see color right and I ass-u-me-d that Because you were redsaid that it would be red.

I thought it was orange but I am almost never right when it comes to color so I kept telling myself - Its not orange, c'mon. Its really red. it says it in the name.

Wheh!

Welcome, welcome, welcome!!

Thanks for all the laughs so far. It must be a crazy experience to launch into blogging with an instant audience (...and a turkey bastard!). I remember how excited I was when a close friend left a word or two on my site (okay,...I still am.). I can't imagine what you're going through.

Enjoy!

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
