Emily Post never mentioned blog etiquette did she?

I have a question that maybe some of you other bloggers can answer. What is the etiquette for reading, on a regular basis, someone’s blog that you don’t know? Do you become a “follower”, make random comments, or read it in silence and don’t creep them out by sounding like a stalker? Generally speaking I am a habitual commenter; photos, Facebook comments, blogs, doesn’t matter I’ll comment on it if I can. I don’t do it to put in my two cents, which I do like to do, but I comment because I figure if someone took the time to post something the least I can do is say that I appreciate their time and thoughts. But maybe that’s only cool if you know the person. I was just wondering.

There is a chance of snow today in Columbia, South Carolina and I’m not going to hold my breath until I see flakes. We usually get a couple “snow scares” a year but we rarely see anything. I think we’ve only had more than a dusting of snow two or three times in my whole life. Of course we have a show tonight, which means the phones are ringing constantly to see if we will cancel the show, which we won’t. So I’ll just wait and see, and maybe cross my fingers because I would really like to take care of my snow fix. (I was going to see a ton of snow in Maryland over Christmas but it rained the day before I got there and melted all of it. I was not amused.) I'll keep you updated.

On a fun note and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day and all the kids who are getting married you may want to pass this video on to your prince charming so he will know better. I’ve never heard of this guy but he’s got some funny stuff. (Also the Chick-Fil-A song is pretty good

I’m still finishing up The Undomestic Goddess, which is crazy cute by the way, so nothing new there. I do want to say that I miss the show Glee very much and I don’t particularly want to wait until April for the new season to start. I might have to buy the first season just to keep myself distracted.

P.S. My new food obsession is Newton’s Fruit Crisps. They are not too sweet like a cookie and only 100 calories so they are the perfect afternoon snack.

Running Off To Join The Circus

The Circus is back at the Colonial Life Arena this week. Something that is kind of cool is I first started this blog because I was bored out of my mind during last year’s Circus. While not a full calendar year, it has been a full event year. I’ve watched most of the show this year already and it’s pretty good. The animals are my favorite. They have 11 elephants, which are so cute, tons of tigers, included a couple white ones, and the cutest dogs you have ever seen. I’m still trying to figure out how to convince someone to let me ride one of the elephants. And to anyone who sides with PETA when it comes to the Circus, no offense but you are crazy. I went to the back of the building where they keep the animals and saw the really neat, and heated, barns that they set up for all the animals. Trust me, those animals have the good life.

On a separate note has anyone else noticed that everyone is getting engaged? My mom just keeps saying that we are getting to that age; however I’m not sure I feel old enough to know lots of married people yet. But then again I still think of myself as a freshman in college so that might add to the problem. Don’t get me wrong, I’m super excited for everyone who has recently decided to tie the knot and I’m even more excited about going to a bunch of weddings. I just can’t believe we are actually becoming grownups. Eww no, not grownups because that’s boring. Let’s go with young adults. I am thoroughly enjoying hearing about everyone planning though. With all the cool wedding blogs, websites, and registries we can all build up our excitement about all the weddings with the brides to be. P.S I just finished a book called Diary of a Mad Bride by Laura Wolf which was very cute. It follows a woman who can’t understand why women get so crazy while planning a wedding but then starts to plan one herself. You slowly see her because bridezilla and how she makes it to the big day. I’m hoping that I can take some tips from this book and not drive my family, friends, and fiancĂ© crazy whenever that time comes for me.

So Valentine’s Day is next week and I have absolutely no plans for it. The only thing I have in mind is to go see the movie Valentine’s Day because it looks super cute and has a ton of cool people in it. I’ve got to work a women’s basketball game that day, of course, so that cuts out most of the day. If you have any suggestions of what two very poor kids, like Andy and I, should do just let me know. I hope everyone has a lovely day though, and if you don’t have a significant other just know that I’ll be your valentine. ;)

Currently I’m reading: The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella. I’ve heard that it is crazy cute so I’m excited. I also just saw the movie Invictus a couple weeks ago, which was wonderful by the way, and it was based on the book Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changed a Nation. I’m on the search for this book and I can’t wait to start it.
