Pin It Well, it's happened. I've been twice smitten.
I got another runner-up mention in Hilary (The Smitten Image) Posts of the Week.
The Smitten Image: An Inspiring Video and Posts of the Week
And the humbling part of it is, that when you're aspiring to be a writer, you hope to be recognized for those writing abilities: for the elegant turn of phrase.
But me? Well, this time, Hilary picked this post , "Guilty", because the video, (originally posted by foodplot on YouTube, and brought to my attention by Christi/callmecordelia on a forum we frequent) was dang funny, and most definitely good for a laugh.
Which is kind of the story of my life: "That Susan: she's always good for a laugh, She's so much fun."
And, really, it's true. If I excel at anything, I excel at fun.
Which leads to a STUNNING ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
Well, actually, it won't be THAT stunning to a few of you Nancy Drew types, since it has already been leaked here, and here. Loose lips sink ships, girlfriends.
Anyway..."What is this 'stunning announcement'?", ask the rest of you Bess types. (Bess was Nancy Drew's best, but perpetually puzzled friend, which is just the kind of best friend you want to have if you like solving mysteries and getting all the glory for yourself.)
I'm harnessing my Fun Factor for Good!!! Yes!!! It's true!!!
I. AM. A. FUN GIRL!!!
(And if you click no other link in this post, for heaven's sake, you should click that last one!!!)
AND YOU CAN BE ONE, TOO!!! (Unless your name is Abe, or Lazarus, in which case, we'll maybe nominate you as an honorary Fun Girl.)
My three friends Anne, Chloe, and Robin and I are starting a "Fun Girls" group blog, and we'd love to have you add us to your Google Reader, or your daily routine, or whatever. We're just getting going, and you'll likely see lots of changes in days to come, as we actually figure out how to operate WordPress, but we're pretty excited about it, and would love to take you along for the ride. We promise to do our best to make it worth your while.
We sure hope so!
And, from one Fun Girl to another, thanks again, Hilary, for the nod.
Can I spot a funny video, or what???
