Well Stick a Candle in My Ear and Blow Me Out

Yesterday was the anniversary of my blog, Happy Birthday little blog! I only started this because I wanted to join in the snark festival of commenting on Fabulon but once I got going, I found out I liked it. I had always wanted to be a writer but been held back by a) a lack of talent and b) a reluctance to deal with publishers. Blogging totally eliminates b). I don't have to look for anyone's permission or approval, all I have to do is post pictures of semi-naked muscley boys and I'm a star.

What I hadn't counted on was making connections here. Honestly, I hadn't counted on anyone actually reading this, period, so to have people respond to what I write is still thrilling to me. When R Man went in the hospital for heart surgery, the support I got from you guys was the most important comfort I had; I still appreciate it. In an odd way, I feel like many of the people I know solely through their comments here and their own blogs are friends. So happy b-day to us all, love ya, mean it.


  1. And allow me to be the first to wish you a happy anniversary! Especially since I'm the one who suffers from lack of other written communication from you for the sack of this blog!

    Luv ya; mean it.

  2. I'm fairly new to your brand of snark but agree with your viewpoint on the connections made via blogging. I speak (e-mail) regularly with a handful of really wonderful men. Men who are talented, engaged in their lives/careers and supportive of one another via these blog portals.

    Congrats on your first year, doll!

    BTW: Nice chain/nude pic. Sproing!

  3. Happy anniversary!!!!!!!

    Hey, you keep putting the beef on the buffet and the crowd will keep coming.

    and by the way,
    a. is completely incorrect

  4. Back at you, caro - think of the remarkable extended circle we're creating, of people with little more in common than a taste for obscure kitsch, a certain wry worldview, and, of course, les hommes. Deeply cool.

    And I'm with Jason (who knows from what he speaks) regarding (a).

  5. How very kind of you all. It was just a transparent ploy for flattery. I'm glad it worked.

  6. Happy Anniversary! Can't wait until your blog gets as many hits as you've had cock!

  7. Happy Belated Anniversary Daaaahling!!

    One hopes that a good time was had with all of the houseboys! ;)

  8. Congrats. And as for a), you're one of the funnier writers on the internets and it's very hard to be funny. Now that my own husband is recovering, I hope to be hanging around and commenting more.

  9. E
    How nice to see you again, I knew form your blog husband man is on the mend (yay.) That must be so distracting.

  10. YAY! So few things these years of older youth can be celebrated with a First anniversary.

  11. Oooh, I've been so out of it, please accept my belated congrats!

    LOVE YOU!!!!!

  12. (I guess this means you've been coming to Fabulon for over a year, too. Yay!!!)
