Headlines + Humor

First, the humor...

1) I have no idea what 49Media is, but their webbot found my 4xFour Meme and featured Bloggin' Outloud on their daily roundup yesterday. Weird. (Caveat scriptum - Blogger Beware: other sites at 49Media are definitely not G for great or PG for pretty good.)

2) I am a goddess. I am not an html hack, I can't program anything let alone my microwave, and yet I am a goddess. Why? For having solved a major challenge that Shamalama didn't even realize he had. And for that he is forever in my debt. (:tongue-in-cheek:) Do not quiver in my presence, I am benevolent. Share in the riches of my bounty.

3) Image Source: Laugh Out Loud found by a random google search. I thought it was funny.

  1. See, this is why /I'm/ the only one in the family who should go by the name "Lyn".

  2. Haha, you're right of course. But a little sexual ambiguity is a good thing in the 'sphere. Stops lurkers from knowing everything about you on the first pass! :-) lol, Lyn (not the goddess)

  3. The real question is: are you on a mountain top? Because only then will we know that you've got it.

    (For those in the dark, think Bananarama.)


Keep it clean and positive. (And sorry about the word verification, but the spmb*ts are out in full force!)
