Roll call??


Okay, I've been wanting to do this for a long time. Curiosity is just plain killing the cat, so I'm taking a deep breath and preparing for my inevitable feline demise. Meow.

One of my fellow WB'ers (hey RBM!!) turned me on to a site counter about 6 weeks ago, which you're probably well aware of should you ever find the energy to scroll to the bottom of the page.

I pay great, and perhaps well too much, attention to that lovely number in white. I watch it climb, slowly but surely, and marvel at the fact that since January 30th, more than 2,200 visits have been made to my little ole bloggie here.

Here's where the curiosity comes in. Who are you? Where are you from? How did you stumble upon my corner of the world? Chances are good you're a WB girl - lord knows I hock my bloggie wares all over that poor site - or you're a friend of mine, someone I've allowed into my diva universe.

Are there others of you out there? Folks who honestly have no flippin clue who I actually am, what my name is, what I look like? People in other countries even?

I'm fascinated to know who I'm speaking to, venting to, sharing my secrets with - hell, sharing other people's secrets with! hehe.

Drop me a quick line. Check in, lemme know where you're from and how you found me. No need to leave a real name or anything like that - y'all know how much I love my 'anonymity', so I can't fault you for wanting yours!

I'm just really that curious. Nosey, even. And I can live with that. I figure every cat has nine lives, so if this particular episode of curiosity is gonna subtract one from my cosmic scorecard, I've still got eight to play with. I can still get up to sooooo much diva mischief with eight lives in my pocket, wouldn't ya say?

And that's your daily dash. How's your diva doin'?

Well, you already know who I am (in that strange, through-the-internet sort of way!). Never actually met in person, but we've communicated a bit in the past on WeddingBells (and recently -- thanks for that formatting help with my blog!). I'm located in Calgary, Alberta, if that helps you visualize better ...

Love your blog so much I've got it linked on my own, think its an absolute blast to read. I even mentioned the "purse room" to my husband, but its a no-go on my end. Oh well, a girl can dream!

Keep up the great work!

Lyne here aka Grimeysgal from WB
I got hooked on your blog from following the link in one of your posts... it is now a part of my daily ritual to see what you're up to... I'm in Dartmouth, NS and work from home... Reading your blog helps me feel connected to the world...

Another anonymous blog reader here..I followed your link from the WB site (I was sent there to check out a friend's pics)
I have to say you have a great sense of humour and you seem like a genuinely warm person! Glad to hear that married life/new home is going well. You've just been through a WHOLE buncha stress and with your "diabeasties"...trying to conceive might be stressing you out. Best advice I ever got was "Just chill and it'll happen"
Here's wishing you the best in that department; for people like you, the best things in life will happen with your positive outlook and ability to see humour in so many things!
If I met you in real life, I bet we could be really good friends. In the meantime, My Oprah moment is over and I hope it cheered your day!
You have a great blog, by the way!

Another WB'er here...Trchevy from Winnipeg. I don't post much there...I'm just a lurker, but I recieved lots of good advice during the planning of our Wedding and the building of our new house. Which reminds me I'm actually not in Winnipeg anymore, we live in Stony Mountain which is 11 kms north of Winnipeg. I too read your blog daily...it's a great read. Keep it up; you're my daily dose of Diva entertainment.

Jesswalsh from WB here as well. I'm a devoted reader (and fellow Whitby gal). Wanna know a little secret? I have to constantly remind myself that I don't actually know you when I read your blog. You do such a wonderful job sharing your life with all of us that I forget you're not one of my girlfriends! Anyways, I'll end my rambling there. Keep up the awesome job!

Yet another WB girl here :) I'm Christy AKA Snick on WB. I'm over in Calgary and like other girls I want to start my own blog...have for a while but I never get around to it.

I read your blog every day. It's always a great read.

Yet another WBer here ... I think you have a great sense of humour and love your blog and contributions on WB. I was born in TO but live in BC now with the new HUBS. Your blog reminds me sometimes of some of the few things I pine for about that part of the world.

I think you are someone I would love to share a glass or two of wine with, and lots of giggles. I am an on-line lurker for the most part (could be that I live in a VERY small town), and I admire you and some of the other ladies for putting it out there for the rest to enjoy - THANKS!

Cheers!

Do I even both repeating the "another wb girl here"?
:)
I read your blog nightly before going to bed (right after my ritual WB check-in). Love it, love it!! Like Jesswalsh said, I have to remind myself that I don't actually know you! You're a real live person, but in actuality, in my world you are virtual. And yet if make it to TO one of these days (I live in Mtl) perhaps I shall have to ride the GO train just to get some diva time!!

Uhh, not a WBer (not anymore, anyway... I was CurvyChelle then just Chellle, but have barely posted in the last year or so), but was passed your blog link from a friend. We have a lot in common - struggles with infertility, just bought our first house, love of all things pink, and I'm really liking your site so far. I had checked it out once before, but didn't have much time. I think I'll be around for a while now.
