We Are Our Own Country Now

My husband (the Geographer) informed me yesterday that this blog now has more followers than at least 3 sovereign countries have inhabitants. I believe that makes us our own country now y’all! Welcome to ContraryLand!

A few things about our country…

National Bird: Blue Footed Booby (Haha…. booby…..)

National Song: Lazy Sunday
( http://www.hulu.com/watch/1397 )

National Motto: LOL

National Animal (large): Nessie (The Loch Ness monster, but don’t let “monster” fool you, she’s actually very gentle and gives great advice on how to prepare fish.)

National Animal (small): Chupacabra  (Hide your goats!)

National Insect: Jiminy Cricket (He can be annoying but he keeps us honest.)

Feel free to share your facts about our totally awesome (and entirely made-up) country! And thank you all so very much for subscribing/following this blog –  it makes my heart fit to burst. :)

 

 

Here Is A Thought On A Monday

So, I wasn’t going to blog this week because I’m totally spending all my time studying for the GRE (aka watching old episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer) but then a part of me thought “You lazy ass, you should at least do a thought on a Friday.” And then the nicer part of me said “Hey you. You’re great. You should do a thought EVERY DAY this week!” So, that’s what I’m doing because the part of me that called me a “lazy ass” hurt my feelings and I want to prove to it that I’m not lazy.

What I’m trying to say is my thought today is that we should all be nicer to ourselves.
