So I have this bad habit. Sometimes I read gomi. Gomi stands for get off my internets which is basically a site where anonymous people write all the reasons why they can't stand certain bloggers. Sounds real warm and cozy, right?
Now, I know full well that I shouldn't look at that site to see what mean stuff is being written about me. But I can't help it. It is impossible. You show me a person who can look away from crap being written about her and I will show you a person who has incredible self control and discipline. That person is not me. (Although I will admit that some of the criticism has been helpful. Maybe one day I'll write about that. Not today.)
Last night I noticed a bit of traffic trickling in from gomi, and so naturally I checked to see what things were being said.
A few days ago I posted this picture of me eating Cafe Rio:
The anonymous commenter, TitWitch, posted this about the picture: "I see a woman who is going to eat a baby with a taco salad side and then steal some souls."
We gotta give it up right now for TitWitch. That comment is pure gold. I didn't mean to, but I burst into laughter the minute I read that description. It's brilliant. Eating babies and stealing souls while downing a taco salad side... Genius. I wonder what it was that gave me a way? The lazy eye? The huge grin? Or was it maybe THE CLENCHED FIST?!?
And that is why you visit gomi.
NOW it is time for the February giveaway. The ladies below have all pooled in their hard earned cash to give away to one of you lucky readers. $170 big ones any way you want it. I hope you take some time to visit their blogs and send some love- there are some seriously fantastic bloggers in the group.
This was the message from last month's giveaway winner after I told her she won: "Holler!Omgosh Omgosh no way!!!!!!
