Dear Interwebs, Be My Valentine

It’s Love Month here at the Great Unwashed. Well if we’re getting technical, it’s Love Half Month; every single day leading up to the fourteenth, I am releasing a love letter written to an important person in my life. Today’s Love Letter is brought to you by The Adventures of Beka, who nominated me for a Liebster Award, thus reminding me that I really and truly love my readers, so today my Unwashed public, it’s all about you.

Dear Readers,

I love you; I loved you from the beginning when you were little bars representing five people on the graph of my daily stats. I loved you from your first “Like”, your first follow and I will always remember your comments. They bring warmth to my heart along with an unparalleled satisfaction that my work is being enjoyed (and not just by my Mom).

Though I write for myself but also because my Mom doesn’t want to hear about when I accidentally show up at church partially naked anymore, on occasion, I write for you. And I always am happy when you obviously enjoy my work too. This here website is a community and together we’re making it great. So I just wanted to say thank you and express my continued gratitude and admiration that you take the time to read my words.

Though I won’t nominate any bloggers because I’ve given out the Liebster Award before, I will answer some questions.

  1. What food means “home” to you?

I don’t have a food that means home, but weirdly enough watching these women is my comfort food.

  1. What is your life motto?

“Eat all the cheese”. I stand for cheese, consistently eat all of it, and rarely share with others. If that isn’t a motto to live by, I don’t know what is. No one ever says “Eat all the turnip” mostly because the replacement motto would soon be, “Run from all the flatulence”.

  1. If you discovered a magic ring that made you invisible, what would you do with it?

I would take the small person “I can fit in that” game to new levels and scare the living daylights out of every person I live and work with.

Now imagine she’s invisible- my whole life would be spent crouching in tiny spaces waiting for my next victim (Photo Credit:

  1. Cold or hot weather?

Why are we talking about the weather? I thought these were intended to be hard hitting questions, aren’t you supposed to ask whether my mother loved the dog better than me? (She didn’t, you’re thinking of the cats, she loved the cats more than me. In her defense the cats were far more agreeable and would never use invisibility and their small stature to kill others with fright.)

  1. Why do you blog?

To write, to share my stories, to have an outlet for my creativity, to amuse myself, and others.

  1. What keeps your blog fresh?

A twice weekly scrubbing. I jest, that would be awful. No, I sprinkle lemon zest on my computer just before clicking “Publish”.

Happy Valentine’s Day Readers,

I can’t wait to celebrate with you next year too.
