OMG - Is it possible that I actually have 50 followers?!?!?

I'm honest enough with myself to admit that it's not my talent keeping you here. And, I have no aspirations to the kind of false humility that expects you to disagree with me either. So, I can only assume that there're at least 50 people in the world (OK 27 people if you discount the Bugaboo Stamps DT that HAS to be here) that find me letting my freak flag fly mildly amusing. If not amusing, then at least you haven't run screaming into the night over the fact that I'm hardly a lights-out, covers-up, nose-to-nose, toes-to-toes, Mother-wouldn't-approve, mamby-pamby wuss-ass type of blogger. . .;)

My sincerest thanks. . .even though my Mexican Southern Belle Mama wishes you wouldn't encourage me. . .;)

As of way of demonstrating my gratitude, I'd like to offer all of you the chance of winning one of two pieces of DE-LICIOUS and NU-TRICIOUS blog candy. All you gotta do is leave a comment on this post telling me a little something interesting about yourself. No, I'm not going to sell your secrets to Osama bin Laden and the Taliban. . .Geez Louise, a bit paranoid, aren't we? ;) I just want to know a little bit more about my friends.

Still nervous? OK, I'll start with a few tee-hee-make-me-pee bio-facts:

  • I was born in Izmir, Turkey.
  • "Huera" (sometimes spelled "Guera") is a family nickname and what my parents call me. It roughly translates to "fair-skinned" in Spanish. 
  • I have a BA in History with a Minor in Anthropology, both of which are throughly useless except for kicking ass and taking names in Trivial Pursuit.
  • I'm an insomniac (Geniuses need very little sleep. . .;))
  • My claim to fame is making out with the lead singer of a nationally known rock band when I was in college. (No, I'm NOT going to tell you who!)



Leave a comment on this post by 04/17/2010 at 7:00 AM EST. The winners will be generated by entering the number of comments at Random.org. Hos, fellow Bugaboo Stamps DT members, non-followers, and international bright young things are all eligible to win. Good Luck!!! :D

Wow, congratulations on having so many followers!
When I was younger, the other kids would call me Janelly (they didn't know my name is Janell Leigh), but one girl said that was to long, so she called me Jelly. I guess that's not really interesting, but it is something people don't know. I have a degree in Liberal Arts, am horrible at Trival Pursuit but great at Jenga.

Well duh Mama! Who wouldn't follow you! I loved ya before you had a blog and I'll love ya beyond. I know that sounds a little stalkerish...but shit...you know me...the Rocky Road of ice creams! LMAO! Congrats Mama and here's to 50 more followers! BTW...check out my blog...there's a little something on there for you! ;)

Congratulations, on 50 followers!

Of course you have piqued my interest as to whom the rock star is. Really, you aren't going to tell?!

Opposite of you, I love to sleep. But, do not wake me up early. I really hate to get up early! All my friends and family know I am not the early girl.

You will be at 100 followers before you know it!

Tanya said...

Girl, I'd follow you even if it was because of the DT thing LOL

Growing up my nickname was dirty face cause whenever anyone saw me, I would have chocolate all over it :)

Jeanie said...

Something about me.. Hmmm?? Ok, here's one - I'm a HARLEY chick!! LOL!! Nobody, believes it when I tell them. tee-hee-make-me-pee!

Rae Anne, you are sooo funny!! I was actually going to ask you what Huera meant - was wondering if it was your maiden name:)

lilscrappers said...

kay, so I'm 51, but you had me ROFL with your post and I stumbled in from Bugaboo.....So congratulations. About me?? I am Canadian, fierce about my sleep time and have too many hobbies, lol.

Hiya, have followed you for a while since I love the quirky fun way you put things and am now a google follower so my number is counted in case it wasn't before. What to tell you about me,...I am a non practicing nurse looking after my mobility challenged son and am frequently told I should act my age. I get seriouslt tipsy drunk on half a glass of wine and can so not take my alcohol, so don't drink very often, but sober up within half an hour or so. It has become somewhat of a standing joke in our family, my sister says I can get drunk just smelling a wine cork. Not many people knew this before as when I go out I just use the excuse of I'm driving, it makes life so much easier than entertaining everyone by being a cheap drunk, lol . Congrats on your 50 followers and here's to many more, with my cup of coffee raised in hand . Thanks for the chance of sparkly candy Julye
