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. 🙂

        even better…… the wand tattooed on to the middle finger… i’ve had time to think about this

  3. I don’t have my own country yet, but when I do, it will be illegal to wear pajamas and slippers in public places. Offenders will be stoned with potatoes. Just because.
