blog crush: what will i ever do with my life?

i will not go on and on today about how happy i am to have been named BoN on tuesday because i realize that i'm fast becoming insufferable, but there is something really, really cool about it that i must share. and that's new people finding me as a result of it, which results in the even better bit in which i find them.

this red velvet cupcake is for you, extranjera 

so i hereby give you my very first official blog crush: what will i ever do with my life? 

if you need a laugh (or perhaps just a cocktail), you must go here. hilarious finnish girl in africa. i've had tears running down my cheeks (and it wasn't just the pollen) and i completely scared the cat out of a sound sleep because i was laughing so hard. just now. right here. in front of the internet.

and all of my previous unofficial blog crushes, like you and you and you and you, oh, and you. i promise this will be a regular feature and you will be officially acknowledged. but you will all love extranjera, so run along and read her now. but don't do it for my sake, do it for your own. :-)

Oh my.
I will now have a celebratory bottle or two of expensive vino and freak out the rest of the hotel bar staff who missed me just let out a shriek and talk to the computer screen (which in my head was you, but they might not have gotten that).
Thank you so much. I'm all freakishly giddy now, which is very inappropriate behavior for a big blond in Zambia...

i almost used a picture of a glass of chardonnay, but went for the cupcake instead, since it's before 5. :-) tho' it was probably 5 p.m. somewhere...

and i speak to my computer screen all the time too (might be what scared the cat). totally normal behavior.

Thanks Julie for having this blog crush. My body needed some laughter relaxation after a hard taekwondo training.

The unofficical blog crushes I will check out later.

My body is now longing for nothing anymore.
