Don't Forget Me

I have been a bad blogger and email friend lately and I apologize for that. As you all know I was having serious technical difficulties, now my computer is completely dead and my online time is seriously limited.

Please forgive me for not commenting on your blog, emailing you, participating on your board, etc. I miss you all dearly and look forward to the days of sitting on my couch with my laptop and hanging out with all of my "imaginary" friends again.

Please go read my friend Gretchen's blog, but DO NOT love her more than you love me. She is very funny and lovable, but I have caught her several times trying to replace me and/or divert attention from me and we just can't have that. She has funny kids too. If Big Kid hooked up with one of her daughters, we could probably get a movie deal. At least a reality tv show.

Also, read Vanessa's blog. She is a hot, talented, single mom who lives on a tropical island and has been pursuing a singing career. It's fun to live vicariously through her dating escapades. She was updating us on a weekly message board thread and I've tried to get her to post some of that so you'll all have the full soap opera and cast of characters, but I don't know, something about being a single mom, working full time, having a social life, blahblahblah. Since it's an ongoing saga, it's best to read her blog from first entry to last.

And, my dear Kate is very, very funny and an excellent writer. A tad inappropriate at times, but that's what I love. If Kate and I were "real life" friends, there's probably a good chance we'd end up in jail together. Maybe I'm wrong, it's just a hunch, but it could be wild.

Edited to add: Cake! I didn't even know Cake had a blog, but I've been wondering where she was and tracked down one of her old comments. I have done this in the past and it showed a profile but no blog name so I didn't think she had one. But I clicked something else and she does. I'll be reading it tonight.

Edited Again to add: Sasha!! How the hell did I forget Sasha? (answer: it's Pinot Grigio's fault) I love Sasha, she's a fellow Bargain Boarder. Go read, she's very funny and also has amusing children!

Speaking of MIA commenters, Dana are you out there?

It's been hard for me to check other blogs (I did check out Monogram Momma, but she met Martha! I had to stay posted on that) but as soon as I get my laptop back I'll be checking everyone's who commented me with theirs and I can't wait! I'll also be updating the blogroll and adding the advertisers.

Can you tell how badly I miss my computer? Really badly.

Out there in Blogland, does anyone know what happened to Not So Desperate Housewife (Corrie)? She hasn't posted in forever. My condolences to you on your computer trouble, Ashley. As one who ought to be in a 12 step group for internet overusers, I can totally relate to your frustration.

Sasha said...

Thanks for the blog recs- great reads! But can you see through your computer screen that I am green with envy?

Ashley said...

I KNEW I was forgetting someone. Actually I knew I was forgetting lots of someones but you're high on my list. Problem solved.

Kate said...

I don't know if I should thank you or be offended that you said I was only a TAD inappropriate??? :D Just look at it this way, if we were friends in real life, and did (by some chance, probably my kleptomania or inability to use social graces) ended up in jail, I've got the baby trained to pilfer us in a file for our jail break. But if we go to jail, we've gotta take Sash along for the ride us being long lost twins and all....In all seriousness, thanks for the shout out I'll be sure to place my "ASHLEY" on the mantel for all to see and I will definitely remember you in my acceptance speech.

Sasha said...

Wow! Thanks much! I just told Kate that I feel like I just got asked on a date by my secret crush in high school!

Queen In My House of Blue said...

get back soon!! hope you had a proper burial for the computer...

Dana said...

I'm here! I'm here!

I'm ashamed to admit - I've been busy. It won't happen again. Promise. You know I love you - much more than this job that's been monopolizing all of my internet time. Bastards.

Ah, but it's nice being missed . . . ;)

Deb said...

So I have to go on TV to get you to pimp my blog? I'll see what I can do.

Ashley said...

DEB!! I didn't even know you had a blog!!!!!! I was going to ask you the other day when you were going to start one. Going to go find it now.

Monogram Momma said...

Don't worry, I've been a terrible blogging friend too so we make pretty good company. It seems like everyone has gotten so busy! And I'm sorry I've slacked on my commenting too, although you know I've been reading. I have to get my Ashley fix, right?
