I Thought It Was Funny!

Surely everyone out there buys cookies, right?  My hubby is a cookie lover.  Must have a cookie after eating, for snack and in general... whenever he so chooses.  Yeah, we're not fitness buffs, does it show?  It certainly does, right around the middle!  We use large glass apothecary jars, for the array of cookies he decides to buy.  One exception to that is Oreo's.  He buys them on a regular basis, but hates putting them in the jars.  Says they don't stay crisp enough.  You know how many of the packages, including Oreo, has the panel on the front, that allows you to peel it back and re-seal it?  A few months ago, my daughter was here while her Dad was making a lunch to take to work.  He comes flying around the corner, in a tizzy, and says, "Look at this!"  He is displaying the tray from the Oreo cookies, showing that some are missing.  He states, "I just opened it, it came this way."  Daughter and I couldn't help but laugh and try to explain the panel on the front of the cookie package and assure him it did not come that way, it had already been partially eaten by my Daughter and grandkids.  He did not seem amused.

Flash forward a few months, to today.  Once again, he is making his lunch, cuts the end of the package open, races to me with it and says the same thing.  Again I explained it to him and reminded him the same thing had happened before.  He most definitely didn't seem amused and was shocked that it was the second time this had happened and he had no memory of the first.  He said he had been holding off opening the bag, thinking it was still full and not wanting to be the first to get in it.  It's nice to know I'm not the only one losing my mind.  What's sad is... both us lunatics live in the same house and may need assistance much sooner than expected.

Changing the subject, I know I've mentioned before, that the main reason I joined blogger, was to be able to follow a couple of friends and leave comments, other than anonymously.  Seems like I no sooner start blogging and they either slack off, or fall off the face of the blogosphere.  I don't think it's my fault?  In the meantime, I have found some wonderful blogs out there.  I've never made much effort to search for new blogs to follow, but have found a few through witty comments they make to blogs I do follow, which in turn has sparked my interest.  There are some really interesting people out there, witty, funny, sarcastic and talented.  I especially like the ones that interact back with the people who take the time to read and make comments to their blog.  Keep up the good work!

To my new followers, "THANK YOU!"  To my not as new followers, "THANK YOU, TOO!"  I'm not very diligent with this, but may be a little bit encouraged to try harder.  Doubt I'll ever be able to post on a daily basis, it's just too overwhelming to hit that PUBLISH POST button and put it out there.  Reminds me of a hospital gown, you know... OVEREXPOSED!

Y'all leave that man's cookies alone!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Blasé, you never cease to amaze me, that someone as busy (popular) as yourself, takes the time to stop in and comment. Thank you!

You and your husband sound like my parents!

Blogging is a neat thing isn't it? It is a whole other world and it is neat to see what is written by others.

I was TERRIFIED when I first started because what if nobody liked what I said? Then, I figured that I didn't care, if I liked it, that was what mattered. It made me happy. That was all I needed and then I got on a roll so to speak!

Welcome, "Kate". "Girl", I'm still terrified!

favorite line!

i have said someone criticizing my blog is like them calling my kids ugly

blogs are very personal things - an extension of who we are, what we think and feel

so it is hard to put ourselves out there sometimes, but don't give up - it does get easier

Ms. Anthropy said...

SFTC... OH LORD, you hit the nail on the head! Since my kids are grown and I don't have much influence there, I hope to do better with the blog... at some point... after I gain courage... and a backbone... and a new computer, someday. Thank you for taking time to make an encouraging comment! I appreciate each and every one!

Nothing more disappointed than getting hooked on a blog and having the author quite writing it... been there. Luckily most of my faves have stuck around.

God, now I want a cookie...

Ms. Anthropy said...

Kristy, I'm still trying to figure out how some of them find the time!

Kristy said...

Yeah, some are hardcore... I spend way more time blogging than I should, but I try to balance it out

Bendigo said...

Take heart the cookie monster strikes many houses (the memory monster hits of few of them too)...

Ms. Anthropy said...

Bendigo... "Thank you!" What an encouraging thing to say. Everyone has been so wonderful and I'm excited to have found some absolutely great blogs to follow. After reading you guys, I must admit I DO feel pressure. You are all terrific! Again, thank you ALL!

Cookies! My hubbins eats them too quickly for them to ever become stale.

When you write from your heart (which you do) they will come (which they have!).

Ms. Anthropy said...

Deborah... Welcome and Thank you for the sweet comment.

You have earned an award

Ms. Anthropy said...

KW... huh?

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

KW - awards are given - it's a blog thing, go get it. just got to the email of your comment and i can't respond b/c you haven't enabled it yet. here's how you can do that

Here's how to get email responses to the comments you leave on blogs: Customize, Dashboard, Edit Profile, and click Show My Email Address, Scroll down and click Save Profile. If you don't want to use your regular email address, get one for your blog. I did.

I just love to leave personal responses to my comments - not all but some - and yours was one of the ones and then BAM i couldn't so i am here to remedy that!

Having said that, you emailed

Excellent post! Thank you for the encouraging words you left on my blog. Came by to check you out and all I can say is, "Wow, how do you do it?" Must admit I'm very humbled you stopped by. To say it doesn't make me feel pressured would be a big fat lie! Golly,jeez... I feel downright honored!

Don't be humbled. All of us had a 'once upon a time' when we started and were knew and weren't exactly sure what we were doing. Go to my blog and read Speaking from the ... Experience. Lots of blog tips for new bloggers. okay this was WAY long. sorry

Blasé said...

how come every time I win an Award, you have to win one too?

Ms. Anthropy said...

Blasé, you're joking, right? You must have me confused with someone else. This is a first for me!
