I just wanted to see if you'd come running. But seriously, folks~This is an ACTUAL ANNIVERSARY, DESERVING OF HEART POUNDS AND GENEROUS TO A FAULT GIFT GIVING.
Now, I know I said no parties, no Jaguars, no trips to Australia (Oprah), but I lied. And then, I realized that you can't know WHAT is an appropriate gift for such an occasion~(diamonds are always proper)~if you don't know WHAT the anniversary is for. So to clarify, one year ago today, I began Blue and Shoe!!! I KNOW! SO FANTASTIC!
Now talk about PERFECT TIMING, because to celebrate, MY first book has come out! And by MY, I mean Jessie Clark Funk's book. But I think we all know she built the book for me. It's called, "Forget the chicken soup, where's the chocolate?" And it's just barely been shipped to her from the printer, so I'm not sure when it will be out on shelves for the HUDDLED MASSES YEARNING TO READ IT. But far as I know, Princess Lisa has written four delightful contributions and will likely be the break out star of the publication.
Anyway, isn't it SUBLIME?
And theeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnnn...EVEN MORE MAGNIFICENT NEWS! Guess who is the new humor columnist for The Syracuse Islander newspaper?! Huh? Huh? GO AHEAD! GUESS! AND THAT RIGHT THERE WAS TOTALLY RHETORICAL, CUZ I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT! MEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEME!!! But my head is down and I'm blushing like Flower, the skunk, on account of my humility and such.
Now don't let's be haters, people. Shun that ugly green creeping into the tips of your ears and nose~nobody looks good in 'shade of peas.' Do not fret. I shall never forget my humble beginnings, and will PROVE this to you all, by giving the universal sign of love pouring out of me and filling you to the brim.............the pinky lift acknowledgment.
That's right. The pinky lift.
While I'm talking on the cell phone, and I see you on the street/on my blog/in Zumba class, I shall lift my eyebrows, my chin and my pinky~IN UNISON~so as to overwhelm you with recognition.
Oh, one last thing. Beautiful Jackie from House of Sarager, is coming into town and we wanted to get together for a MAD CAP, WILD AS A MARCH/CHIN HARE bloggers dinner, and YOU are invited! To go along with the pinky lift. We're thinking next week, Thursday eve, the 23rd, at Biaggis at The Gateway. Around six-ish? Let me know if you can come and I'll bring the Chiclets. Sorry, I ate the pie. It was getting all slobbery.
So to end this beautiful anniversary blog...I LOVE YOU ALL, MY PINKY IS LIFTED AND FEEL FREE TO SLIP THE TRIBUTES INTO THE COMMENT SECTION...
...in case you can't make it to Tiffany's.
