About GirlontheContrary

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.

Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t.

And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would.

You see?

  3. Am really glad I found your blog! I’m new to wp and just started blogging. Your writing is inspiring! Check me out. Would love some pointers from a seasoned blogger. (www.realmomsdontjudge.com)

  4. Just found your blog and am following. Not as a sheep just because 18,1?? others are but because you made me laugh. Thank you and love your blog

  5. Hi GirlOnTheContrary,
    That makes up an interesting tongue twister I could try on my good ol’ friends. However, I love the way you write and your “Thought for the Day”. Definitely following. See you around.

    So I’m trying to find blogs/websites—-whatever you wanna call them—- that would get me going, get me interested. Cuz I’m a noob here on wordpress.com. Anyways I just stopped by and was just wondering (seems I love the word ‘just.’ see if it’s true by going to http://justsarahlaura.weebly.com/) if this blog/website is worth while. Well, of course you would say that but I am in to writing short stories or just random stories and reading fiction, fantasy, mystery… and drawing. So that’s just about it and… what I said just now probably made no sense. But whatever! meh… -_- i failed so badly.

    -You only YOLO once (unless you a Greek monster ;D)

  7. I have just spent the best part of an hour reading your blog. I realise that I was in the ‘family’ category, and so was treated to a lot of awesome Grammy quotes. I love that woman.
    Now I will indulge myself in more posts of yours.
    Thank you for writing so brilliantly. No thank you for serving as a method of amazing, funny, great procrastination.

  8. Love your blog. I especially look forward to “A Thought on a Friday” every week! I have so many random thoughts that I want to blog, but I’m a lazy ass and just don’t. I’m just living vicariously through you until I can get my act together and actually post regularly. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. WordPress just told me I might like your blog and they couldn’t have been more right! I love it! Contemplating asking them what I should do the next time I cut my hair but have a sneaky feeling they might not be able to help as much on that one.

    Genuinely hilarious writing. Keep it up!

    Hi Girlonthecontrary! Your blog posts are really funny :). I was just wondering, since you have so many followers, do you get paid to blog?

  11. Andy Lewis says:

    You are nuts. Which is great. Love it. I’m fr too serious. If you don’t mind, may I follow. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. arkansasrose says:

    I totally agree. Though I don’t have the same way with words as you do. You are hysterical and I’ve enjoyed reading your blogs.

  13. I, too, share a love of the chili-cheese burrito (used to be called the “Chilito” back in the day). If you ever get up to Michigan, the closest I’ve found from my home in the middle of the state is in Clare and Oscoda. I have to travel 30 minutes one-way just to get my fix in. I say we start a petition to bring it back to all Taco Bell’s, eh?

    Nice blog! I enjoyed it. I think in a former life we could have been soul mates… ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Awesome blog! I just stumbled upon your blog and am already a fan! This whole blogging craze is new to me and I have to say that you are definitely feeding my addiction! Thanks for that ๐Ÿ™‚ and I’d appreciate if you checked out my blog please?

  15. Your blog. I can’t get over how awesome it is. Seriously, best read in a long, long while. Thank you so much for putting this gigantic grin on my face and for being epic!!

  16. Not quite sure how I ended up in “Contrary World”. Reckon i clicked on a blog, that linked to a blog, which linked to another blog….you get the gist ..till I kind of fell down the rabbit hole into this amazing world you’ve created ๐Ÿ™‚ Long story short, great blog !

  17. shreyapunj says:

    Just discovered this gold mine, i.e, your blog!
    I love it!
    Might i add, our writing styles seem to me very similar.
    That aside, i read a couple of posts and all the while i had this stupid grin on my face. The right arm post had me in splits though!
    Great work!

  18. raainy0blue says:

    You had me at, “If I had a world of my own..”
    Well, the whole quote, really.
    Yeah. That went better in my head.

    Stopped by your blog and it made me smile ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep writing!

  21. I’m going through your older posts to brighten my day and your humour sounds just like mine half the time. You’re like an American version of me ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I can’t stop laughing! Finally someone who has a similar funny bone to me. :’) You make me laugh uncontrollably. ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. Hello! I’ve been visiting your blog since your Flirtation Failure post. That was so relatable and funny and it was one of the stuff I lived by. It’s been a while since I’ve visited and now that I have, I am so happy to read posts from a happily married and consistently funny woman! There is hope for the rest of us, I suppose? Haha. I wish you more happiness! ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. Hi! ive been reading through your blog and i think its really great! I have recently made my own page and i really want to start blogging. do you have any advice or tips? thank you xx

  24. I’m pretty sure that you’re used to people complimenting you by now but another one couldn’t hurt… Absolutely LOVE your blog!! I was googling out a quote for spinsters at 25 and there you were!! Your writing inspires me!! (probably heard that one too) I can’t say one thing which I’m sure that you’ve not heard before but in all honesty, You’re AWESOME! Much love!

  25. Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed! By the time I reached Imaginary Glitter Explosion Therapy I was laughing a lot and wanted to read your blog in one go. Which would be greedy and impossible. Great writing, please keep doing it!

  26. The Smile Scavenger says:

    Been following a while so I may as well drop a comment here. Love your blog. You consistently make me laugh and think. Your copyright disclaimer is my favorite to date.

  27. SweetP says:

    Morning! You have been nominated for the Kreativ Blogger Award! Check out my blog for rules if you wish to accept! Happy Blogging!

  28. laurengraceevans says:

    Hi! I nominated you for the Creative Chaos blog award cos I love to read your lovely blog. If you wanna know what to do for the nomination take a little look see on my blog. Yay!

  29. SweetP says:

    Hi Iโ€™ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award, feel free to check it out on my blog, have fun!

  30. When I was at primary school we used to play this game where we spoke backwards language. You had to say the opposite of what you meant. It was the best fun. Thank you for reminding me of childhood. I think I’ll play that game again soon.

  31. bandia17 says:

    Hi GotC, I wanted to let you know I’ve passed on the Liebster Award to you. Check out my blog for the rules if you want to pass the award on. Every post makes me laugh and brightens my day. Much needed now that Ohio is covered in snow lol!

  32. Iโ€™ve nominated your blog for the Kreativ Blogger Award. While it doesnโ€™t involve a trophy or a giant novelty cheque (I know, it sucks), you do get a funky little image to display on your blog to let readers know how awesome you are. There are a few conditions associated with receiving the award, so have a look here to make sense of it all.

  33. GotC, wasn’t sure where to put this, so hope this is okay.

    I have picked you to receive The Versatile Blogger award. I received it recently and was thrilled to be able to pass it on to five worthy recipients, of which you are one. I believe you are eminently qualified to receive this award. Your writing is fun, cheerful, light-hearted and well written. You make me laugh out loud and it is healing laughter. Your irreverent approach to some issues are refreshing, and I enjoy your frank opinions on some of the goings-on of our day.

    If you would like more information and the rules surrounding this award, please go to my site here.

  34. So very very FUNNY!! I ‘pressed’ this to my blog, hopefully properly citing you all due credit/copyrights etc! Please do check, if I did anything incorrectly, I will delete the link posthaste- I am incredibly cognizant of plagiarism, (cannot abide it at all!) copyright issues, etc. Finally, I wanted to simply msg you this, as it’s not really a standard ‘comment’ per se, however, I loved this blog post so much I wanted to share!!!

  35. I love Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and this is why I must now follow you. BUT do not get offended if I stop following you in the future. Lol

    1. Hey, i was gonna say that! I’m going to follow you too, but don’t feel obligated to follow me back. I’m okay with my stalker-ish tendencies. If I stop following, it’s not because I don’t like you anymore, it’s just that I found another shiny penny.

      Love the goldfish!!

  36. Ah, my escritorial sister from another mister….reading you keep me from dwelling in my head and lets the Princess come out and play more often…keep writing. (Don’t worry–it’s inspirational energies only…I yam not a krook….)

  37. mustlovemusic82 says:

    I feel like we have been separated at birth. Love your blog. I too am socially awkward around cute men and love Alice. I think we should start a club, it would be da bomb. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  38. Hey GotC,

    your blog is wonderfully hilarious. I was chuckling and giggling most of the time I was reading it. Keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚


  39. Hafsa K says:

    Stumbled upon the blog by accident and can I say that the accident was more than awesome? Yeah..I can, I guess. Love your insanity and your wonderful sense of humour! You.are.amazing!

  40. Khalid says:

    I read somewhere that we actually use only 2% of our full brain capacity.
    Using 10%, wow, that’s …. amazing.

  41. GotC, I appreciate your energy to keep writing witty things on your blog, however more so for the promptness that you show for replying to all your comments!
    I pray that the almighty give you triple the energy to continue in this or even better fashion!
    Keep it up!!

  42. Serenely Rapt says:

    Funnily enough, I do. It’s like, how can you know ‘light’ until you’ve known ‘dark’..?


  43. Howdy! Just wanted to let you know that I’m a new reader and I’ve been getting quite a few chuckles out of your posts-I likey your brand of insanity.

    So, I’ve nominated you for a blog lovin award. It’s all just silliness, but then, we all can use a bit more insanity in our lives, right?

    You’re awesome! I love your blog on Enrique’s Iglesias’s song I was just like you go girl!. I’ma newbie blogger I think you are one of my first subscriptions!!!

  45. Simply hilarious blog posts! Through Logic bone I came across you..good that happened. I did not come across anybody so far who is full of sense (many pretend though!), so there is a lot of company!!!

  46. Stumbled upon your blog quite by accident, and just thought I’d say that I love your style, totally. Will be adding you to my blogroll and following you from now on. Great stuff – you are unique!



  47. concealedflame says:

    You’re hilarious! and you have amazingly interesting thoughts! I only found your blog today, but I love it! Keep it up! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Ahh… I thought I’d read something similar in ‘Alice and wonderland’ I think. But even if they aren’t your words, it fits in exactly with your humour and style ๐Ÿ˜€

  48. Hey, nice blog!!!
    Alice is Wonderland is AWESOME, I’m glad someone else actually likes it beyond the movie.
    Stay (sic) xD
    P.S. – your ranting is epic
    P.P.S – your mother. (I’m sorry, I had to put that in.)

  49. Christina Adleman says:

    haha, that’s great, truly ingenious, and I do believe that I agree with that 110%! Because I already follow that theory of nonsense for my own life… the only exception being is that I do have a world of my own, there’s no “if” about it… *cough*… what can I say?, I’m a daydreamer, and my imagination is more vivid than most people can claim about theirs. ๐Ÿ˜€

  50. เดงเดฟเด•เตเด•เดพเดฐเดฟ เดฐเดฃเตเดŸเดพเดฎเดจเตโ€ says:

    Impressive …again …

  51. I stumbled across your blog on the freshly pressed page. Great blog, great writing and absolutely amazing content. Each post so different from the last. Refreshing read.

    Thank you fo the wonderful insights. ๐Ÿ™‚

  52. Ah, I get it. Your world will only exist as long as your world does not exist. Because if your world exists it would no longer be different from that which exists, and will thus cease to exists.

  53. “Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!”

    Now I see where Contrary comes from. Thanks,

    michael j
