Thank You

I just signed in to my blog, and caught the number of followers. I usually try to avoid it because I get all weirded out if the numbers are down, and before you know it I'm mugging a Girl Scout and committing a Thin Mint felony.

But tonight, I clicked on the list, and perused the pictures and nommes de internet you all use. So many names and faces I recognize, and any more, so many I do not.

I don't know what brings you over to this silly place every few days. Maybe it's the same thing that takes people to the zoo: You just want to see what the monkey's gonna throw this time.

Well, whatever the reason, I wanted to say thanks. Just thanks. Thanks for reading and commenting and laughing and relaxing over here at DeNae's Home for Discombobulated Fruitcakes.

I don't do awards, or giveaways, or things more sophisticated bloggers do. So gratitude is all I have to offer. But I want you to know it's from the bottom of my heart.

(Fortunately, I stored it in there and not in my gall bladder. I kept my penchant for mayonnaise sandwiches and my Engelbert Humperdink record collection in my gall bladder, so when it flew the coop last fall, there was really no harm done.)

At the moment, I don't have much to blog about. But my son's 15-year old pal is staying with us indefinitely, and given the nonsense these clowns get up to independently, let alone when they're sharing that terribly inefficient brain, it really is just a matter of time.

But meanwhile, you have my thanks.

It's not much, but it beats a mayonnaise sandwich any day of the week.

Ah - a common lack of galbladder storage, if I could only keep up with your goodness of heart :) I too can't figure out why people keep coming back, but I'm one of those give-awayless, commercialess and forever add - less blogs.

Ha! I'm a zebra fan myself...but you are more entertaining.
I have an extra teenager here right now. It's quite the zoo here too.

My husband would disagree...he loves mayonnaise! I think you must not realize how funny you are. I un-follow blogs if they aren't interesting enough in one way or another. Unfortunately, that's probably why my blog doesn't have many followers!

Our Girl Scout cookies come today. I feel the sudden need to hide them.

Braden said...

Thanks for providing a fun but faithful commentary that makes me laugh and smile and not feel sorry about it later!

Kazzy said...

You're welcome, indeed.

I have never done awards or giveaways either. I feel like until I can get my act together enough to do that nice stuff for my husband and kids I certainly shouldn't do it on my blog. :)

I need to do better at visiting my followers. Because I don't follow, and many of them never comment, I don't visit. Maybe that's why I lost a gazillion last week. Because it can't possibly be posting about hernias. Everyone loves them, right?

Molly Doe said...

Thank you for the laughs. I'm happy I came across your blog.

M-Cat said...

I get so excited when you pop up in my reader (how many people can say that?)

And I believe there is a warrant out for my arrest on multiple Thin Mint felonies.....

Garden of Egan said...

Well, I've been working for the last 5 12 shifts and am now emerging from my coma.
I saw you had posted and before I even opened up the post and had to run over to my cupboard with the secret stash and get myself a candy bar.
Then I planted my generous buttocks down and enjoyed myself.
You are truly one of the craziest people I know AND trust me...I'm an ER nurse I KNOW CRAZY!

Thanks for the smiles. You are wondermous!

Kimberly said...

I only have 6.

ENVY.

You rock though. Seriously. You deserve the fame.

L.T. Elliot said...

How could I not come here? With phrases like "a flock of concussed seagulls" and "discombobulated fruitcakes"? Seriously, do you have any idea of the fit of giggles that gives me? Ah...sweet, sweet laughter. =D Love ya, DaNae.

Hilary said...

I don't think I'm a follower, but I do follow your blog.
I think you are SO funny, and and smart... and witty.
And who doesn't want to read that?

Kara Herron said...

You just make me smile, DeNae. I'm really glad I found your blog. Keep it up, please. If you ever stopped, I'd probably have the same kind of withdrawal I had when my nail tech stopped doing nails!

Becca said...

I keep coming for the recipes. Mayonnaise sandwiches? That's what Im talking about.

Lara said...

Well, you're very welcome.

But I am sorry about all the Engelbert Humperdinck music. What a dreadful loss. (Okay, so it certainly depends on which Engelbert Humperdinck we're talking about here...)

Just ME the MOM said...

Yes - hee hee! It actually snow "cats and dogs" here :)

What?! Are you kidding me? No awards or giveaways? Shit! You might just as well be at my blog!
Actually here is great. There's no place I'd rather be for the moment!
And it's not so much that I am wondering what the monkey is throwing... I think we all know what that is. But who's gonna get hit and how hard. ;-)

Blogger is eating my comments today, all over the blogosphere. I don't know why. But what I said earlier today (in much more eloquent fashion) was this:

you're fantastic

(It was a really long comment and involved references to monkeys and what they throw. Too bad for all of us blogger has it out for me.)

Charlotte said...

That's a hard call. Is the mayonnaise on wheat bread or white? Name brand mayonnaise? I think I need more details.

InkMom said...

And also . . . I just looked. I am follower-with-a-photo #3. 3! That, my friend, is longevity. And friendship. Did I say I would have flown to the CBC in May even if you were the only blogger I know? No? That's because Blogger ate my first comment.

One of these days, I'm just going to show up at your house. With all of my kids. And you will smile. YOU WILL!

Debbie said...

Girl, I consider myself lucky to be in that group of followers. The day I found you was a joyous day indeed.
And a 15 year old staying indefinitely. Sounds like blog fodder.

Steph @ Diapers and Divinity said...

And thank YOU for still acknowledging my existence even though I don't do the follower thing. You know I follow you anyway right? In a really nice read-all-your-posts kind of way, not a weird stalker kind of way. You're like the Pied Piper of Blogdom!

Jessica said...

UGH! I was just thinking the other day as I was making my kids sandwiches, how I used to make mayonaisse sandwiches for Vanessa after school. I would try my best not to gag while I made them, or while she ate them. My kids don't know that you can make a sandwich out of bread and mayo. I don't think they ever will.
It's fun to pop in and see what you are up to ;)
