this is where i tell you to go somewhere else

not because i don't love you and want you here, but because i was so fucking retarded the last time i "rented" space to cristina- that i never even mentioned she was here!!! and well, she got like no clicks. and so i rented to her again for practically nothing so that i could PIMP HER OUT TO Y'ALL!!! so there. it's cristina from mommy off the record and she is fabulous!!! i met her at blogher and she is SO great! and i feel so lucky that she doesn't live too far from me and i could see her again if i wanted....
*waves hi to cristina and tells her that she like the shirts she's wearing today*
but now that i'm sending y'all to visit her... it looks as though she's needing a blog break. there is definitely something going around in blogland. why do things happen in waves? i don't think it's a coincidence, i really don't. i think when more than a few people are feeling the exact same feelings, that it's something more than just having a bad day. maybe the planets are to blame? i'd be the first to blame mercury retrograde if it was in retrograde... but it's not, so i won't. but really. don't you think it's interesting that multiple "strangers" are going through the same emotions at the same time?

Ha, I just came from there.

And yeah, I could use a blog break myself.

Kristin said...

i love mommy off the record... she is MUY FABULOSO!

Elizabeth said...

I have Cristina on my Bloglines, but I'll click to her from here if it will help.

Becky said...

who else is taking a break?

Kevin Charnas said...

totally...

and thank god that mercury retrograde bullshit is over with! I've never seen anything like it...completely bent me over for the month of July...and not in a fun way.

I completely understand why she's needing a break from blogging. Sheesh, I don't even have one but just reading the few that I enjoy takes so much time away from other things I could be doing. BUT, I enjoy reading everyone's blogs so it's hard to not read them daily. It's an addiction, I guess. :) Maybe you could all agree to blog just one day a week...everyone blogs on the same day...so you don't have to worry about missing something the other 6 days of the week. Heehee.

Thanks, Jennster! You are the coolest for pimping me out like this. But remember I told you I wanted to give you extra credits for this...so e-mail me your info douchbag! (sp?)

Anyway, on the topic of weird blogger coincidences...I once discovered an equally weird phenomenom that occurs in the blogosphere, which is that women who blog together often also get their periods together (it's called menstrual synchrony). I posted about this once and found that many women who commented were also on their period at that time.

Speaking of menstruation, I’m on my period right now. (Perhaps this explains my blogging mood of late.) And you? Are you on your period? Could we be synched up? We DO read each others' blogs a lot. Is this TMI? Ok, forget I asked.

Well, despite your valient attempt to pimp me, I’m pretty sure that anyone who reads this comment will NOT be by my blog for a visit. (he he)

Meg said...

It is strange, but I'm definately not one of those who is going to be taking a break anytime soon! I have too many odd things happen in my life...I have this compulsive need to share it with everyone!

Lisa said...

I think our periods are sync-ed up too!

russ said...

"there is definitely something going around in blogland"

this statement made me snort.

Mike said...

I think everyone's tired from doing things since it's summer.

Miss Britt said...

I was noticing that too - and I was starting to think it was ME because as soon a I found and fell in love with all these blogs, they started disappearing! (jeez I'm egocentric)

Her Bad Mother said...

We all get these moods at the same time for the same reasons that women who are close get their periods around the same time...

But I don't know why THAT happens, so maybe I should just shuddup.

spidey said...

I am on a blog break too. I have so much to say, but I'm too lazy to actually write it... :(
