Delurking Day!

So today is Delurking Day, where I get to do a cheater post, rack up comments, and you all get to tell me how OMG, I totally read you ALL the time. Your single-digit comment counts have nothing to do with mediocrity. You rock the Interwebs.

Uh, I mean, today is Delurking Day, and, as Aimee at Greeblemonkey says, it's all about YOU! Yeah. That's it.


Idea/participation courtesy of Aimee via Chris from Rude Cactus, who hosts/organizes this.

Anyway, come say hi! Pretty please? In the mean time, here are some posts I have coming. (I bumped the promised "Wildlife Wednesday" because I had something even more important than spiders to talk about that day. I think you understand.) What do you want most?

--Black widow spiders: Their ugly webs are way more elegant than I'd realized, they make a sort of cricket-bait guano, and I'm trying to raise them, but they keep eating each other.

--Boyce Thompson Arboretum: Our version of Sunday Mass, and either recent adventures or how it changes through the seasons.

--The Time I Got Lost in the Superstition Mountains and Ended Up Drinking Leeches

--The Time I Forgot to Wear Pants to Class

--The Time My Husband and I Were Chased by a Bear (maybe) and I Almost Flashed Everyone in a Fever-induced Delerium

--The Time My Husband Gave Our Son a Clown Phobia

I'm off now to feed the remaining black widows, put on some pants and get my real job done. (Woo paying work!) Come visit. Good karma shall emanate from your monitor, and I'll be real happy.

I am REALLY looking forward to hearing more about that time you forgot to wear pants to class. :)

I was afraid that would be high on the list.

You forgot to wear pants to class?
Yeah, that sounds like a good one. I'm hardly delurking, but at least I'm clicking over from my Google Reader to say hi. I'm afraid of asking people to delurk for fear that they don't.

C'mon, someone vote for something else! Spiders? Clowns? I totally wasted a whole afternoon drawing a clown illustration!

Thanks for the visit, as always. I know what you mean. It's like starting to applaud or sing and having no one else join in. Oh well. I guess if I'm offering to air my dirty laundry (or lack of clothing, as it were), I'm past feeling foolish.

Ahhhhh! Spider!!! Ahhhhh!

Okay, sorry, I'm okay now.

Now I have to go back to my Google reader and stalk you from that safe spider-free zone.

*happy place *happy place *happy place*

Hi! (I am not afraid of spiders.)

Technically, I'm new and not a lurking, but I'd like to say 'hi' all the same.

Pants? Pants are overrated anyway.

I'd say clown phobia, but clowns are SCARY STUFF.

personally, I'm interested in hearing about how you drank leeches. I found a dead fish in one of my traps once that was completely filled with leeches - they started crawling out it's anus. I have pictures.

I've been reading you in my feed every day!

Heather said... Best Blogger Tips

no pants? flashing people? bears and spiders, oh my! I can't wait to read all of this!

Kim Hosey said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks for the visits, everyone. Here's to seeing more of each other.

(With pants, of course.)

I vote for the bear & delerium... But if we behave ourselves, can you tell us all of them?

Speaking of spiders, I was on a photo shoot with my daughter today in a large field, and suddenly she starts pointing at me and shrieking incoherently, which caused my completely calm and sane self to respond in kind--apparently a very LARGE and particularly yellow and brown spider was crawling up my stomach. I never even saw it...

We are NOT spider people...

waving hello and thanking you for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind comments.
the leeches story intrigues me only because I had the pleasure (?) of using leeches on a patient once for wound care.
