Recently, Momspecitve Blogger Julie posted a post on how she has made it to the top of the blogger heap.
If you haven’t read it, I urge you to check it out, she gives some great tips.
If you don’t know Julie, I can tell you that there are plenty of people out there who think she does a great job. The folks at Nintendo flew her out to the Superbowl last year- pre game parties included. That’s impressive.
What Julie doesn’t mention in her post is that something that has made her popular with other blogger’s is that she is very personable. That is, she friends everyone everywhere on everything. When I first started out, I was excited to see that she was one of the first to Google friend me. Julie doesn’t do the clicky thing – as in ‘tribes’- or slam other bloggers (I can think of a few that she could have slammed). She just friends and respects everyone. This kind of self confidence and sincerity is what has made Julie so good. Congratulations Julie on a job well done!

Welcome to Monday Mayhem.
Today we are going to play part 2 of the Silly Ponderisms meme.
PONDERISMS- Last week we filled in the blanks. This week we’re answering the questions
10· In the 60’s, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal. So, what is normal?
I guess ‘unnormal’ is now the new normal.
11· How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
Personally, I go to the dollar store and buy a lighter.
12· Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, ‘I think I’ll squeeze these dangly things and drink whatever comes out’?
That’s a hard call since most adults know what those ‘dangly things’ are called.
13· If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?
I didn’t know this. I just went to Wikepeida and found this:
“Blue Tail Fly”, “De Blue Tail Fly”, or “Jimmy Crack Corn” is thought to be a blackface minstrel song, first performed in the United States in the 1840s that remains a popular children’s song today.
14· Why does an OB-GYN leave the room when women get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway?
Maybe they don’t want to see the other stuff if they don’t have to.
15· If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?
Very funny Jimmy.
16· If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?
Mineral oil with smell stuff added.
17· Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?
I’ve always wondered how hard it is for Dyslexic people to read the word Dyslexic.
18· Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?
Not in the creeper movies or when you gotta use the girls room.
19· Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
In my experience, the darn thing dries up too fast.
20· Do you ever wonder why you gave someone your email address?
You mean when you accidentally sign up for a newsletter not even knowing? There are a few I’ve gotten tired of deleting like the one for baby stuff. Why would I want that? Been there…done that…
