National Delurking Day



I didn't know this was a day, but it sounds fun and I am bored right now so I'm stealing TJ's Delurking Survey (slightly modified)Miss Grace's not at all modified survey, because I am lazy like that.

The TJ Miss Grace Jenni Delurker Survey, 2011:


1. What’s your name, and how long have you been reading this site?

2. Do you have a blog and/or a Twitter name and/or something else we should all read today? If you don’t have one yourself, you can tell us about someone else who is deserving of our eyeballs today.

3. What is your favorite song right now? I am going to go listen to it and tell you what I think. No pressure.

4. Is there anything I haven’t covered or answered but I should have, but you couldn’t tell me that because you were busy lurking? DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FOR ME?

5. Are you a lurker everywhere, or is it just my blog?

6. Tell me something really weird or unusual about you. That will take care of the whole “every time I want to say something, someone already said it” thing.

7. Recommend something. A book, or a movie, or a flash game, or a friend of yours as a really excellent person, or a valid career path, or a little known parenting strategy, or a super clever cleaning tip or trick, or incredibly helpful organizational tool, or the best socks you’ve ever owned.

Now Miss Grace threatened to do something evil with potato bugs for not commenting, I won't do that. However I will remind you that I just kinda nervous breakdown and I am a WEE emotionally fragile and no comments will likely lead me to fall apart.

1. I am Miss Grace (Jenny Grace), and I have KNOWN you for seems like over a year at least? Longer? I read this site when I think to (via twitter, cuz that's my official reminder for such things).
2. You know where to find me, dontcha?
3. I am obsessed w/Mumford and Sons right now.
4. <3
5. I am LAZY everywhere.
6. One of my thumbs is double jointed.
7. I have two fantasy/YA novels to recommend: Graceling, and Fire. Same author. Read them in that order though. They are not strictly related, but I think if I had read Fire first I wouldn't have liked Graceling as much, and I LOVE THEM BOTH.

1. Angie; I have no idea.

2. AWholeLotofNothing.net; @alotofnothing

3. My girls play Taylor Swift on repeat, so I don't really have any other songs I like that I can think of.

4. no; no

5. I've been a VERY bad blog reader lately. It's not just you.

6. I have webbed toes.

7. Whenever in doubt, order a burrito.

PrincessJenn said...

1. I am the indubitable PrincessJenn. No idea how long I've been reading you. A while?

2. Of course. Just search for PrincessJenn. I'm the one who's not a porn star. Or you could just go to http://www.princessjenn.com

3. Favorite song is probably Pink's 'Raise Your Glass'.

4. Yeah... I want your hair. Could you cut it off and send it to me please? Well, then can you just tell me how you get such fabulous, thick hair? (and if you say genetics, I'm going to cry)

5. I'm a terrible lurker. Reading in a blog reader has that effect.

6. Uhhhhh... I suppose the fact I'm just weird in general doesn't count, does it? No? Damn. Ummmm... Oh, I know. I've lived above the Arctic Circle. That's kind of unusual.

7. Recommendation... hmmm... OK: The only book that my book club ever agreed was a good book: The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson.
(I still recommend duct tape as a parenting strategy, though)

Chibi Jeebs said...

1. Chibi-Chan; at least a year?

2. chibistruggles.blogspot.com

3. Adele - Rolling in the Deep.

4. What is the last fun (read: not school-related) book you read? Would you recommend it?

5. My other name is Sir Lurks-a-Lot.

6. I believed that if someone took my picture while my eyes were crossed they'd stay that way until I was 10. That's when I finally worked up the balls to test the theory.

7. I live and die by my Google Calendar. If it ever shits the bed, I'm DOOMED.

Jenny, I have no idea who Mumford and Sons is, I will have to google. I have a double jointed thumb too. I think this makes us twins.

mom2nji said...

Angie,
I think we met at the Olive Garden tweet up like 2 years ago? I am very sorry about your impending insanity due to TSS. (Taylor Swift Syndrome)

mom2nji said...

Jenn,
I think we met during BHAH the year before last. I have the memory of a...of a... whatever animal it is they say.
I have no doubt in my mind that there is a porn tape of your at there somewhere...Just saying.
My hair is genetic. My whole family grows hair like chia pets. Only thick and pretty and not green. If I ever decide to chop it off, I will totally send it to you. Which won't be creepy at all, right?

mom2nji said...

Chibi,
I LOVE Adele. LOVE.
Last fun book I read was a Nora Roberts one. I have a not so secret love of fluff reading. Nora Roberts, James Patterson, Fern Micheals, and even Danielle Steele. I don't even remember the title so clearly it was not magnificent but it got me through two Er trips and the dentist mess.

Mary Helen said...

1. My name is Mary Helen and I've been following you on Twitter and reading your blog for several months now.

2. I'm on Twitter at mhstoltz and my blog is http://wiremonkey.wordpress.com. I'm just getting started.

3. Little Miss by Sugarland is my favorite song. I like the part where she says "It's gonna be OK" because I think, eventually, it will be.

4. Can't think of a question.

5. I'm a chronic lurker. Trying to get better.

6. My oldest daughter and I both have two webbed toes on each foot. Also, I crave nacho cheese Dorito sandwiches with Miracle Whip when I'm really tired and stressed. Gross, I know.

7. I love the Marshall Karp books -- especially Rabbit Factory. They're great for light, humorous detective fiction.

mom2nji said...

Mary Helen that is just about the craziest craving ever. lol Thanks for reading!

Anonymous said...

1. Mary and I been reading since we "met" in 08

2. I dont have a blog.

3. Sweep me Away by Kari Jobe

4. I would just ask ya on text or gchat.

5. I read about 4-5 blogs, not everyday.

6. I dont know how to ride a bicycle.

7. I highly recommend anything Francine Rivers has written love her books. Elderberry works great to fight the flu. Coconut oil is awesome. Vision therapy is extremley helpful for learning disorders. Prayer is extraordinary for all things. :)

gymnotechieology.com said...

Technically yesterday was delurker day, but I'm waiting for the internet to be hooked up at my new house this week so I'm a little late.

1. I'm Kadye and I've been reading for... wow... at least since before summer...

2. I do have a blog but I'm still finding my voice and writing style so it's a bit choppy. It's gymnotechieology.com and I'm also on Twitter. My twitter name is Kadye

3. Pretty much anything early Beatles (before the hippie drugs).

4. I can't think of anything - but classes started a couple of days ago so I haven't been able to think since then.

5. Everywhere. I'm trying to delurk on the blogs that I read and care about most often.

6. Tell me something really weird or unusual about you. That will take care of the whole “every time I want to say something, someone already said it” thing.

7.
A book: If you're looking for a series that is a quick read that doesn't take much effort the Pretty Little Liars series. I also recommend All the President's Men
A movie: Arsenic and Old Lace
A valid career path: Let me know what recommendations you get for this... I'm stumped.
The best socks: the fuzzy ones from Target. For real.

Sarah R said...

1. What’s your name, and how long have you been reading this site?

I'm Sarah. I've been reading you, oh, maybe for forever?

2. Do you have a blog and/or a Twitter name and/or something else we should all read today? If you don’t have one yourself, you can tell us about someone else who is deserving of our eyeballs today.

You can find me at www.fillupyourmug.blogspot.com


3. What is your favorite song right now?

A Little Bit Stronger by Sara Evans. It's beautiful!

4. Is there anything I haven’t covered or answered but I should have, but you couldn’t tell me that because you were busy lurking? DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FOR ME?

I don't lurk I comment nearly every time. No questions except wondering what you're going to do about the seats in your van.

5. Are you a lurker everywhere, or is it just my blog?

I lurk on most blogs and not yours.

6. Tell me something really weird or unusual about you. That will take care of the whole “every time I want to say something, someone already said it” thing.

Well, I have no webbed toes, but I've been told I waddle like a duck. But I think that's when I need to pee.

7. Recommend something. A book, or a movie, or a flash game, or a friend of yours as a really excellent person, or a valid career path, or a little known parenting strategy, or a super clever cleaning tip or trick, or incredibly helpful organizational tool, or the best socks you’ve ever owned.

I like that game Tradewinds. I like it so much I actually bought the disc on eBay and I'm impatiently waiting for it to arrive. And it cost me $6.

5. Seriously, I lurk everywhere lately. I don't have as much time as I would like to comment so I just read through Google Reader so I can at least keep up.

6. Dude, I'm a bag of nutso but let me try to find one thing. Oh hrm well, I get offended if someone doesn't say "bless you" or some variation of that when I sneeze. Like, seriously offended.
