So I am new enough to blogging (almost two years) that I still get very, very, very excited if I have a new follower. I jump up and down on the bed a few thousand times, then I do some back handsprings, then I crack open a bottle of Champagne. (I am totally lying about the Champagne. It's usually Pinot Grigio.)
Next, I click on the new followers little picture icon to see who they are. (I want to make sure it is not that goofy guy I used to date the summer between my junior and senior years of college, because the restraining order says he has to leave me alone.) If the follower has their own blog, all the better: I click on it to see what type of material they write.
I literally do this every time I have a new follower. I always follow my new followers back because they are my new friends and I am grateful and appreciative that they are here. I will read their blog and usually it will make me smile.
Holy cow, this new one I found made me more than smile, she made me laugh until I woke the children up. The name of her blog is "Defenestrated Feet," which, based on the name alone, I already am in love with. I did not know what "defenestrated" meant, so I had to ask Google. Google told me it means to "throw something out the window." Is that the coolest word ever? Who knew there was such a specific word for just that, a word that replaces five whole words? I am going to weave my new word into conversation whenever possible.
Her blog is words and quirky illustrations. It is awesome. Totally right up my alley, the alley of things I love like chocolate and trips to Paris and receiving checks in the mail when you were not expecting it.
Anyway, without further ado, here is the LINK to her site. Just promise you will come back to me.
