The Secret Is In The Sauce BLOGATHON!
Last week I joined an elite society of trained operatives. We masquerade as normal, regular ol' women who are just going about our business (taking care of our families, working, writing, perhaps whipping out a quiche or baby quilt every now and then) and who happen to enjoy an occasional blog post or two. Seems innocent enough, yes?
We work under a veil of secrecy.
Codename: "The Secret Is In The Sauce"
Recruitment into this hallowed league is deceptively simple: one needs only to click on the cute little pink leopard-skin badge over in the right-hand column..over there...lower...no, lower...almost...Oh, for heaven's sakes! It looks like this:
One click will introduce you to a network of blogging women so friendly, so charming, so supportive...that you might think they are mere civilians. You know, nice ladies who write thank-you notes and would not be caught dead wearing white shoes after Labor Day.
But don't make that rookie mistake. Tread with much respect and do not look directly into the LCD glow of their pupils lest you unleash an unearthly torrent of pointy-nointy Ninja stars. [Bwang!] (Those things really smart, BTW.)
Included here for your consideration are links to five of my saucy sisters-in-arms' blogs, along with some [ahem] "post titles" to give you a little taste of what to expect:
Nanny Goats in Panties
"World Peace? I'd settle for covered parking."
Happy Meals & Happy Hour
"Bartending School: What College Recruiters Don't Want Your High Schooler to Know"
American in Norway
"I swear, if one more person asks me if I know ABBA..."
Blah, Blah, Blah, Blog
"I'll tell you what you can do with your tuna-noodle casserole."
Texas Word Tangle
"Parent-teacher what? Oh, I don't THINK so."
Remember, when you visit:
- Don't make any sudden moves.
- Tell them their hair "has loads of body and manageability." (Trust me. Just say it.)
- And, for God's sakes, don't set your sweaty Big Gulp down anywhere without a coaster under it!
Good luck, my friend.
