Not Sausage Links, SAUCY Links! Geez!

Special Edition Post:
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?

Pah!

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 m
uch 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!
Believe me, it'll be worth it (especially if you win one of the super-cool prizes they're giving away every hour today at saucy headquarters). This is one network of ladies you'll want to have on YOUR side.

Good luck, my friend.

Hello from SITS!! I love your writing. You are hilarious. Great description of SITS!

Tiffany said...

This is AWESOME!

You are such a great read. I am adding you to my blog roll now!

Aubrey said...

LOL

Great post! You're too funny!!

You linked a couple blogs I haven't checked out yet! I'm SO excited to "meet" some new SITStas!

nikkicrumpet said...

I swear you are the biggest Goofus...and I mean that in the nicest of ways! Only you could do a post about linking up to other bloggers and make it hilarious. Thanks alot for making me look like a boring spaz! But hey...I win cool points just having you link to me...even if you were in the band! THANKS!

Kelsey said...

Hi from SITS!

I can't wait to read those!! Definitely be back to do that tonight.

Mandy said...

I just discovered SITS too! Love your post!!

Anna Lefler said...

Nikkicrumpet! I didn't make you look boring! Quite the opposite: I made you look DANGEROUS. As in, "I'll TELL you what you can do with yer stinkin' tuna noodle casserole," she said all Lauren Bacall-ish. See? [Uh-Oh! Incoming ninja star! OW!]

Smoochiefrog said...

nikkicrumpet said...

QUIT IT DAMMIT...I'M HAVING SNORTING GIGGLE FITS AND I'M GONNA WAKE UP MY HUBBY! You will be in SO much trouble...it's freaking 1:27 AM...what the heck we doing still up????

nikkicrumpet said...

ummm dork...you misread my comment. It wasn't what you said about me. Although I've never met a tuna casserole...at least not personally. No I meant that your post was so funny that it made my SITS post boring...COME ON WOMAN...KEEP UP!

Anna Lefler said...

Nikkicrumpet, I have underestimated your mojo. You clearly have Jedi mindwarp powers. Either that or I should have passed on that fourth plastic cup of Nyquil.

XO

A.

PS - Your post wasn't boring at all! I especially liked the scratch 'n sniff part. Oh, wait, that's a piece of a danish that got crammed under my monitor. Anyway, your post was NOT boring!

Anna Lefler said...

Omigosh - I can't believe how many cool SITS ladies already have stopped by! Thank you so much and I'll be by to visit in return! I'm working my way through ol' Mister Linky but I'll get there!

Thanks for all the kind comments - I love hearing that I made someone laugh...

:^) Anna

Your post is hilarious. I am adding you to my list so that I can come back and check your site out more thoroughly when I am not busy trying to suck up and win prizes.
Great, great idea! l
You had a couple of bloggers I haven't met yet, thanks for sharing.

NO Way!!!! Thanks for the shout-out sistah! BG is all stoked that his little pimp mug is on someone else's blog. If I had not dropped the SITS ball, and had, in fact, been aware of blog-link-day, I so would have linked you. Does that count at all. I'll blogroll you now on my site :D

Kendra said...

This is fabulous. I can't wait to read more of your posts.

Jori-O said...

You are one funny lady! Sausage links...Ha!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am not doing a SITS post today as I am celebrating my 100th post. Please stop by and enter the giveaway.

T said...

I must admit to wearing the occasional white shoe (or two) after labor day - but aside from that I keep up my "normal" facade pretty well.

Christa said...

I read the headline too fast and though the post was really about breakfast meat. DOH! I wanted to chime in about my love for scrapple (the meat product not the word game Scrabble.)

This SITS thing sounds pretty cool. How can I get a non-pink icon for my blog. I have a serious pink allergy and hope that my medical condition called "pinkus allergicus" won't prohibit me from getting involved. Don't discriminate me because of my pink problem...pulease!

Can I get a purple icon? I can deal with the leopard spots, not allergic to that. THANK goodness!

Bar-b said...

Where have you been all of my blog life? Came through SITS but I think I will stay and peruse your blog. Happy Saucy Blog!!!!!!

Melodie said...

zenmom said...

It's my own darn fault. I was warned! No liquids when reading "Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder". But I still spewed coffee all over myslef while reading this and other blog entries. :D

After seeing several SITS referrals to your blog, I decided to check it out for myself. It really IS as funny as advertised. But ... I can't stay and comment any more now, because I have to find some screen cleaner.

Thanks for a really great time. I'll be back. :)

Now do something funny...no really funny so I'm proven right lol
