Words

I struggled with the temptation to post an audio file of the Bee Gees song Words. Thankfully, I won. (Apologies to Bee Gees fans; nothing personal, but I just don't like their music. Blame it on my parents, who I think had every recording they made and bombarded us, their children, with Bee Gees music at home [LPs] and on road trips [cassette tapes] when we were growing up.)

Anyway...

Despite the fact that I've never personally met most of the people in my blogroll, I've seen and experienced online just how friendly, supportive, and caring you guys can be. Sure, you or I could be ax murderers in real life. (Okay, that was a joke. Can't be too careful with words nowadays, doesn't that suck?) But the goodwill resulting from the words you type, along with the good vibes they convey, are sigh-ingly, breathlessly indescribable.

Words on a web page can make us think, make us sympathize, make us feel sad, or make us feel good. I've felt all these things at one time or another when I read your blogs. But one thing's for sure, and believe you me, you guys bolster my morale in the most unexpected (but never unwelcome) ways.



The widget king himself (and surfer extraordinaire) Penfold made me laugh with this not-fugly certificate he created. So thanks, Marc -- both for the laughter and the reassurance that my blog ain't fugly. I'm sure you do DaddyPapersurfer and the Terrible Goddess proud (reluctant they may be to openly admit to such a thing). :-D

Sloppy kisses and indecently tight hugs to all of you, whether you like them or not.

Hey Lizza, can you just give me a semi-indecent hug? You can save the other stuff for your other perv blogger friends. Not saying any names but they rhyme with "Wagon", "Watt-Wan" and "Weeyun".

Hehehe.

Langhiya ka, Buti na lang hindi ka nag-post ng Bee-Gees. Baka magkaroon na ng kakampi si Rubilex. =)

Joke lang! =)

I just love the way he used the 'typewriter' font for I am woman, see me blog. Hilarious!

Keep blogging your heart out girl, you are loved.

You have probably undone all my work of the last 39 years by being nice to Penfold. I have tried to keep him away from kind and understanding people like you - I must try harder. I don't know what the TG will have to say about this. [I'm enjoying the indecent kisses and sloppy hugs though]

Michael C said...

I have come to truly value my blog friends.

I also like the Bee Gees...sorry ;-)

Lizza said...

Debo: Semi-indecent hug given. Why, I have absolutely no idea who you could be referring to. Haha!

HB: Ahem...

You think that I don't even mean
A single word I saaaaay
It's only words
And words are all I have
To take your heart awaaaaay

Sana ma-last-song-heard syndrome ka. Haha!

Kyels: Thanks! You're a sweet one.

Wendz: Yep, haha! That was funny.

Thanks, Wendz. So are you.

DaddyP: Well, you can always work on the little Papersurfer. But with your child-rearing skills, he'll probably grow up to be as nice as his dad.

Don't get me into trouble with the TG!!! She might not allow me to worship her anymore. :-D

Michael: Haha! They aren't bad; I just had too much of their music (unwillingly) when I was a kid.

Lo, TG said...

Worship away: I'm feeling particularly benign and if you've seen the shopping list you'll know why - 100 pairs!

Lizza said...

And in white, too! :-D

penfold said...

You're welcome loverly Lizza. Now if you'll excuse me I have very important WBC business to attend to...

Odat said...

Awwwwwwwwwww ..How nice.....and so true too!!!!
Peace

Kiyotoe said...

it's easy to underestimate the effect we all have on each other in here (blogosphere), but when someone does something noce for you like penfold did, then it should be obvious how special you are lovely.

p.s. - i was going to make a comment about indecent hugs but since Big Sis (Debo Blue) apparently made a perv reference about me too....

i'll just shut up and leave.
she's always picking on me. :)

Natalia said...

I love the bee gees. Not that I would consider myself a fan. But some of their songs are awesome.

FoxxFyrre said...

Fugly????? This blog fugly?? Load times are indecently tight hugs fine too. I have an older Compag Pressario, and it loads just fine. Other blogs sloppy kissesI've been to, I can brew some coffee, go I'm in for a walk to the store, have a cigarette Lizza! only to return Again!?!to another widget trying to load.

XOXO

Tammie Jean said...

Honestly Lizza, I think what makes your blog special is the way your personality shines through on every post. And that's the reason your online friends keep coming back. The reviewers obviously no nothing of who you are.

Matt-Man said...

You are so wonderful when kiss sloppily. I do however take umbrage (love that word) at your Bee Gee bashing. I like several of their songs from their pre-disco days. Listen to "New York Mining Disaster"...Anyway, my tongue thanks you. Cheers!!

lizza said...

Penfold: WBC business sounds so intriguing. :-D

Odat: Yep, so thoughtful of him. Still makes me smile and still gives me a warm feeling. Or is that because it's so damn hot here? :-D

Kiyotoe: That's only because she adores you so much, lol

Natalia: I do admit that they are legendary.

Frank: Haha! Your comments are usually posts in themselves. Thanks, oh cool one.

Tammie: Thank you. :-) I'm just glad my blog wasn't totally trashed.

Matt: I love that word, too. Sounds so dignified. Such a classy way of saying "I resent the hell out of that!" And I did NOT bash the Bee Gees!

Sanni said...

HA! I love the certificate =D
... and I hate the BeeGees - since I have special memories coming up when I listen to their music. Ugly memories... veeeeery ugly! ;)

Lizza said...

Ugly memories associated with their music? Hmmm, sounds interesting, dearie.

CS said...

Guess I'm one of your "perv blogger friends" - I'll take the sloppy kisses and indecent hugs!
