First of all, I’m so sorry I have been absent for so long. My only excuse is that I have been at a complete humor blank lately. Also, I was at a conference last week so that kept me busy.
I did write one thing that I thought was funny last week but I wasted it on Facebook. Sorry again. If you’re interested, it was this: Some people shyly mingle the first day of a conference. I make a beeline for the bar with a shoe covered in my blood.
I’ll try to be funny again ASAP.
So, there is a bit of a new look here at GotC. I like it. I am aware that the picture is a bit pixilated though…. I’m working on it. OR – maybe it’s an artistic choice I made to remark on the nature of our digital online personas. I’m deep like that y’all.
I have a confession – I almost always over-steep my tea. It’s shameful, but there it is. Mock me as you like. I deserve it.
I’ve always thought that red velvet cake is really just a platform for cream cheese icing.
How many times can you watch Elf, before it becomes, like, TOO many times? Asking for a friend.
In general, I try not to brag. I mean, I hate to brag, but I’m kind of the best at not bragging.
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 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. 🙂
