If there is one blogger who I love to have fun with, it’s Lola.
I first met Lola one day when I was dropping entrecards and I noticed a post she had written about Ron Santo on the morning talk venue. She was dissing on him big time :).
So, growing up in Chicago and having a brother who was Santo’s biggest fan, I too some offense. And so the comment whore wars began……………
Lola is the author of
(excellent looking blog btw!)
Fire Crotch Rocket (I don’t think I wanna know the origins…..)
She’s a transported Wisconsinite to the Chicago area, a feat in itself since Chicago people don’t necessarily love Wisconsinites.
A bit about Lola-
Location: Illinois : Midwest : United States
I live with my Partner and my teenage daughter and son. My daughter had a mental breakdown a little over a year ago. Her symptoms now lean toward Bi-Polar. She attends a special school for children with emotional disturbances.
Cooking canning. Watching Football Baseball.
#1 Casablanca. Bound. Donnie Darko.
Melissa Etheridge Indigo Girls Green Day.
“Me. Stories of My Life” Katherine Hepburn’s Memoir.
This was indeed one of Lola’s most memorable posts;
Umm, see, did you notice I went with the squirrel theme? Do I get extra bloggy friend points for that? And Patricia has the “Easy button” just to prove how easy it is to successfully hold a blogger meet-up.
I had a really great time learning about my fellow bloggers and sharing bloggy tips. Lin and I even compared deformed nails.
I’d really like to get together again soon. These are some really great ladies and great bloggers. If you haven’t checked out their blogs before, please do, Look It’s Megryansmom, A Malasian Abroad, Communication Exchange, Duck And Wheel With String.

Why the squirrels? Because I am a big, huge dork! One of the bloggers at the meet-up talked about collecting stuffed animals and dressing them up in outfits, kind of like build-a-bear. I thought she said “SQUIRRELS”. It was “BEAVERS”. I stand corrected, I am hanging my head in shame and embarrassment. SUPREME embarrassment!
I guess my error was a good thing because I would very likely be in serious trouble with the Mrs.’s if I had googled “beavers in costume”. One can only imagine the images one would find were they to google that.
I’ll be hiding my red face in shame back in the kitchen.
