Happy Blogiversary To Me

Can you believe it's been a year since I started this? And although I had been reading other people's blogs for a while, I finally hit one that wouldn't take anonymous comments so I had to bite the bullet, take the plunge, do the deed. I have had fun with this blog and have "met" some incredible people. It's a strange world that I dare say others in my family would think nutty. But who cares what others think, right? It's all for us, right?

I can't believe I have had that many hits although I know half of them are me checking my blog (and the comments). I wish there was a way to discern the difference. But then I might be depressed that there were only 800 hits instead of 8000. Looks like I'm my biggest fan.

Although I'm not the greatest at figuring out the things to the right, you can now click on 100 Things About Me and learn a little but more about the Redhead Editor if you can read through it. I also included the ENFP personality type which is so spokingly close to me. Enjoy.

Oh crap... I'm not ready

Is Christmas really the day after tomorrow? WTF?? My kids are going to the Transberian Orchestra Concert today down at the Savvis Center. So glad they're going to the 4 o'clock performance and not the 8 o'clock. That would be nuts. It was part of their Christmas present. It will allow the DH and me to take a survey of everything I have done for Christmas and he has not and start wrapping. (I'm not bitter.) Keep your fingers crossed that I don't tie him up in ribbon and tape because he has done NOTHING. Nada. Zip. I take that back. He went up to church yesterday when I asked and spritzed the evergreen so it wouldn't dry out.

Tonight we have an impromtu wedding of a dear couple at church who just got the okey dokey from the bishop. So with family in town, they decided to tie the knot. As usual the family will come out in full force as altar guild, lector, usher, and acolyte. She didn't want to bother anyone this time of year, but you know me. I whipped up an invitation and sent it to hundreds of our closest friends. Won't she be shocked when they all show up tonight on their way to some other Christmas function? I asked them all, "When was the last time you went to a wedding to listen to the vows instead of dream about the open bar at the reception? So that will be a nice "break" from the ravages of Christmas shopping, but since stores are open till midnight in this fair city, we will be back out at the mall after the ceremony.

I really do shop throughout the year, but I don't survey early enough and end up frantic at the last minute because of the little things I forgot. Like Leesa, I did not put up a tree or much decoration, and I don't even have a cat as an excuse. Ok, I have to go eat my words because the DH just brought me lunch. Damn it. It is 60 friggin' degrees in St. Louis today. What is that about? I want cold and snow. I think I'm moving to Montana to live with Leesa. But I hear she has mountain lions and bears (OH MY!) in her backyard so maybe not. Of course, I have shopping at the mall the day before Christmas Eve which is similar so you'd think I would be used to fear and panic. Wish me good luck. I have the annual Christmas letter written. I just have to post it with photos for you to enjoy. Maybe I'll go buy Christmas stamps for those few snail mail cards I send. So I'm off to pick up the photos for the cards.

Fa la la la la la la la la...

10 Things to Ponder for 2006

Number 10 - Life is sexually transmitted.
Number 9 - Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
Number 8 - Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich!
Number 7 - Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.
Number 6 - Some people are like a Slinky... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.
Number 5 - Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.
Number 4 - All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
Number 3 - Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut saves you thirty cents?
Number 2 - In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
Number 1 - We know exactly where one cow with mad-cow-disease is located among the millions and millions of cows in America but we haven't got a clue as to where thousands of illegal immigrants and terrorists are located. Maybe we should put the Department of Agriculture in charge of immigration.

Christmas (holiday) letter coming soon. I promise.

Damn, if I only had her body!

You are the Greek goddess Hera, who is known as
Juno to the Romans. You are the queen of the
ancient heaven, Mount Olympus, since you are
the wife of the King the gods Zeus. But
unfortnately, Zeus has quite a taste for other
women and is very unfaithful. But the good news
is that he is still a little afraid of your
sharp tongue and you always get back at the
women he is with. In addition, you always
borrow Aphrodite's (Venus'?goddess of love)
girdle to make him mad with desire, thus
weakening him and so you get him to do anything
you want him to!
Although you have very little control over other
gods and goddesses, you do have the ability to
choose anyones fate. You are also the guardian
of all womanly things such as young children
and marriage, but are best known for your
unforgiving temper, fierce jealousy and harsh

Which GREEK (or ROMAN) GODDESS are you? (Girls Only)with pictures! in results
