I’ve been at Borders, working and writing. Or at home baking cookies. Which means my primary means of blog-reading is via my little palm pilot while at Panera or while in bed. Which means I haven’t been doing much (any) commenting around town. Even here.

It’s nearly impossible to comment with a mobile screen. I truly, truly am enjoying your blog posts around the blogosphere. Edie’s at Magical Musings (with all the comments, too) was particularly inspiring to me, and I loved Erica’s dinner party post so much I tried to comment via the palm pilot, but my dinner friends disappeared.

So it’s like the blog version of larnygitis. Commentagitis? Blogagitis? (Can you tell I’ve been in a shopping mall today? Brain. Not. Working.)

I’ll be back to normal in a few days. Please just trust I’m reading everything you guys post, every comment you guys make. Okay? I’m addicted to your words!

I’m also typing this at Border’s, so when I get home to post it, I’ll probably collapse in bed before I can tell you guys how much I loved your six-word memoirs. You guys totally kicked ass! I feel almost embarrassed to have such talent reading my little old blog.

Thank you for reading my blog. I never say that. But thank you. Thank you even more for blogging. I love reading blogs. Passionately.

Speaking of which, I just discovered a new blogger, Laura J. Thompson. She has two new blogs in their infancy: The Literary Prostitute, a personal blog, and Write. Now., a writing blog. (Not to be confused with WriteNow, my nickname for Starvingwritenow. ;-) )

If you get a chance, will you pop by and welcome her to the blogosphere?

A big SMOOCH, Spy. I was trying to think of dinner guests for Erica's dinner party, but it was impossible to get my list down to 10.

Yay, Spy! You always send us to the most interesting places.

You're writing at Borders? During the holiday season? Brave, brave woman. LOL

I love your blog. Thanks so much for your insights - I'm looking forward to more in '08!

Merry Christmas, Spy! Hope Santa likes you as much as the rest of us do, and shows it.

Merry Christmas, and thanks so much for introducing my blogs. You're too sweet! I'm glad I discovered 'Spy Scribbler', and I'll post a link on my blog.

Happy Christmas, dear... see you in January's meeting?

Thanks, Edie! Oh gosh, I think I was up to 15, but I do have a tendency to ignore rules, LOL...

Happy Holidays, Aimless!

LOL, Christa. Not so much writing. The two days I went, I turned on my computer, then wandered around all day thinking of presents for people. :-)

Thanks, Stephen! Merry Christmas to you, too!

You bet, Laura! Merry Christmas to you, too!

Writenow, I hope so. Probably!

LOL ... thanks, Kate! And thank you, too! I love your Magical Monday posts, even though they rarely seem to happen on Mondays, LOL. ;-)
