Soul Mates

by Marinka on July 26, 2008

Me: Guess what? There are like five people who read my blog almost every day! My blog is really taking off!

Husband: That’s great. I hope that it does take off.

Me: Why?

Husband: Because it’s an inexpensive way to keep you amused.

Because before I started blogging, I was all polo ponies this and cricket that.

Did you watch that show Real Wives of New York City??

BTW, I only have 7 regular readers…

It’s only inexpensive until you decide you need a better computer. ; )

I read every day! And I laugh my ass off too….

And an iphone.

Hm I guess I drive up the cost when I need to drink my mocha latte while crafting my posts.


jen July 26, 2008 at 10:12 pm

my husband does not even remotely understand it. nor, try.

did that sentence make sense?


Maura July 27, 2008 at 12:47 am

Men just have no idea how we can make things expensive if we feel like it, do they?

Tell him you’re going to start a $4-a-day chai habit like anymommy and see how he likes that!

Thank you, everyone, for making me laugh.

WFB-Do I watch Real Housewives NY? OF COURSE. Wait, you’re not one of the housewives, are you? Because I think they’re all out of their fucking minds. I miss them!

Alice–funny you should mention that, because I really could use a new laptop. And what is more bloggable than a trip around the world?

Marmite–Thank you! Please bill me for your kind words!

Anymommy–is an iphone a must? I don’t want to make any blogging mistakes!

Raising–Hey, every last bit helps, right?

Jen–it does make sense! I should have mentioned in my post that my husband has never, ever read my blog. Fume!

Maura–that’s a good idea, but I am anti-chai. I think anymommy banned me from her blog for being chai-unfriendly. Either that or intense jealousy over my good taste in beverages.

They were my magic pills for 7 week.

I missed them too.


Z July 27, 2008 at 12:35 pm

bwahaha! This might just be my husband, too…

Isn’t it fun when you start to get regulars? Although the regulars who never comment are a bit disturbing. Like the time I found a new blog, and then discovered I was already on her blogroll. Freaky.


zarafa July 28, 2008 at 10:23 pm

ok seriously… i couldn’t even decide which post to comment on because each one made me laugh harder than the last. it was the polo ponies and cricket that got me though. 🙂

Clint gets freaked out by my non-family member readers. It’s probably the best reason of all to blog.
