A little over a year ago Keri and I stood in the kitchen at ABBA ranch licking a bowl of chocolate/orange cupcake batter after our harrowing experience in the wilderness. We were both feeling a little sad as she was leaving the next day to head back to her real life in Portland after a few days of crafting, boozing and kvetching in Humboldt.
“God, you know what would be the perfect thing for a day like this?” Keri asked. “Some chocolate covered xanax.” It was then and there that we decided to start a blog for the sole purpose of staying in touch with each other.
We thought we’d exchange a few photos,
bitch about whatever was pissing us off at the moment talk about new coping techniques, analyze in excruciating detail our relationships with men, share crafty tips and delicious recipes and complain brag about our families. And we did all these things. Plus a few more.
What we didn’t realize at the time was that our little chocolate-covered world would also lead us to a community of people who were doing the same things that we were. Okay, well maybe not exactly the same things, but you know what I’m saying. Communicating. Putting stuff out there. Discussing. Sharing. Really, through all the neuroses and drunken stories and stupid girl tricks and tears and laughing so hard that limoncello comes out our noses….we’re blessed to know you all.
So we want you to celebrate our 1st Blog Birthday with us! Some of you may see it as a Bloggiversary, but no. You don’t get spankings for an anniversary, after all. We’ve decided, in a blatant rip-off of our favorite Boy Most Likely To….. to offer a little birthday contest giveaway.
Unlike our favorite Boy, we’re not nearly as generous or practical. No useful gas card here. Instead, the winner will be the lucky recipient of a fabulous Chocolate Covered Xanax Mystery Gift Assortment. What will it include? We can’t tell you for sure. But we promise you’ll love it. Really. Don’t be scared.
The rules? Just leave us a comment telling us:
What would you give us for our 1st Blog Birthday?
There are no restrictions. Money’s no object. Fantasies are fine. You don’t have to wrap it.
The most creative answer will get you the big prize.
Thanks for putting up with us. We love you. Yes, even you, Ordinary Guy. And especially you, Heraldo. Still. xoxoxox
