It's been about a year since I started blogging!!
How official and celebratory is that? I started posting on my regular schedule April 16th. I was going to celebrate on the day a stranger first commented on my blog (that's you, Becky!) which would be in July, but that is too late for me to mail something to someone, since I plan to do it in June when I'm in Hamerica (that's what Greg calls it, so I do sometimes, too. I doesn't mean anything besides America).
So there you have it. I love blogging. I love keeping up with family and friends and I really love the new friends I've made. I love that I can write whatever I want, even though I sometimes feel bad because it's not worth reading for others, but I want to write it anyway. So I do. I have stayed true to myself in this blogging world, though, and that's what counts (to me). That and the friendships I've made and getting really amazing insights, information, stories and laughs from you all.
I really appreciate you guys a lot. I would like to be rich and just send a package to everyone I'm friends with through blogging. Maybe next year. . .
So what am I giving Away? you might ask. I'm not really sure! Now race to enter the giveAway, everyone!! :)
I'm giving Away Polish stuff. I have a suspision that it will be mostly food but I'll be sure to include some other Polish stuff, such as things that they have in Poland that aren't food.
To enter, just leave a comment on this post. I'll choose a winner on Saturday (and mail the stuff, as I said, in June, sorry!). And I hope it's YOU! (meaning, no need to spread the word. Let's keep this in the family (plus people who chance upon it, you're invited too, of course!), unless you know someone who's crazy about Polish stuff or something, then you can share.)
Now to COMPLETELY change the subject for a minute. I need to vent a little. About Breaking Dawn. I know I'm extremely late to that party, but here I am. **might be spoilers ahead**
I'm not the type to get worked up over a story or to be too critical, or generally to get all involved, so that's not what this is about. I just really need an answer to a question I keep having. I am about 3/4 of the way through the book. The vampires are gathering. So they can "witness" to the Volturi. Because hopefully seeing all the vampires there will make them stop for just long enough to listen. It's not very likely, though. Everyone will surely die.
WHY ON EARTH DOESN'T SOMEONE, LIKE, SAY, BELLA, WHO IS IMMUNE TO ALL THEIR TRICKS, GO TO ITALY AND TALK TO THEM? She was planning on going, anyway. They aren't coming to Forks for A FREAKIN' MONTH. If all that is needed is to explain what Renesmee is, why are we waiting for them to get in battle formation FOR A MONTH (and why on earth do they keep talking about a month as if it's SUCH a short time? Do the Volturi really have that much to pack? Maybe it is a short amount of time if it's all you've got left to live, but it's also PLENTY of time for 85 smart vampires to go on the offense. Be serious.)
I have read a little bit further and I know that they're suspecting that it's not about Renesmee but any excuse to carry out their evil plot, but still. Why this gaping hole? Or is it not gaping. Or not even a hole? Please SOMEONE ENLIGHTEN ME.
Despite this and a number of other smacking my hand to my forehead moments, I'm actually enjoying this book some. (thanks for sending it, Su!)
