Making Headlines…again

Do you remember the moment that I became famous as clearly as I do?

It was July 17th and I was thinking about finishing packing for my Cancun getaway celebrating 10 blissful years of marriage with the hubby.

In Colorado or California either Heather or Tiffany pushed the “Publish Post” button and put my name in lights. Almost immediately I was inundated with comments and for a whole day I knew how it felt to be a celebrity. Oh the attention was bliss. My inbox could hardly keep up.

Kat was featured before me and knew just how it felt to be a diva for a day. She wrote me a letter that got me thinking.

“How do I get myself featured again?”

That ESP crap really works because today I’m listed as one of the “CLASSICS”.

I’m not trying to brag. I’m just letting you know. In case you’re interested. πŸ™‚

P.S. I do not wear tube tops, and I’m pretty sure I’m not that much shorter than Kat. Plus, I don’t really think I’m famous. Only sometimes. πŸ™‚

    I think you’re an ORIGINAL, even better than a CLASSIC… for example, Coke original – much better than coke classic…

    Hope you have a great day…

    It’s nice to see where you got your start. Any famous person knows just how important it is to “keep it real.”

    I was just remembering the post you had about David Becks it still makes me laugh.

    You and Kat both rock the blogosphere! Congrats on getting a shout out from the SITS sistas. You totally deserve it!

    Live.Love.Eat says

    Well, Angie, you certainly deserve it. As much attention as you get you always make time to be responsive to the people who come to visit you. Not everyone is like that and while some may crave attention they don’t give it, so you should feel good about that!!!!

    I was doing soo good on keeping up with the comments..& then I had to actually go get something done… It will be a few days now… Not like that is a BAD thing! Gosh… I am feeling a bit like DOOCE today!

    Michelle says

    Congrats on your Classic status! And don’t fool yourself… are a celebrity. I know I get totally excited when I get comments, but I get plain giddy when a SITS celebrity comes over and says hi! πŸ™‚

    Here's my story…

    So yesterday I'm getting all these comments on previous posts. I'm all, "Did Dooce give me a shoutout?" I ask H & T, "Is something going on over at SITS?" Oh, and I asked this BEFORE going to SITS.

    Silly me. I had no idea. I'm a classic, too. I feel all black patent, pearly, and navyish. Don't you?

    Veggie Mom says

    You ARE a CLASSIC, just to let ya know! Thanks so much for stopping by for my own personal SITS Day in the Sun yesterday! I’m busy returning everyone’s comments-it’s a lot of fun, but pretty humbling, too!

    Kacey Randolph says

    Well, I think you’re famous and I love your blog. Plus, if you ARE famous then that means I kind of know a celebrity right? See how it comes full circle right back around to me? Ha! Ha!

    Congrats to you on your “classic” status. That is AWESOME!

    mannequin says

    Wow. It is a GOOD thing to be a CLASSIC?
    I guess. In YOUR cause, I think it is.
    Congratulations Angie! And to think…you do it all just by being you.
    You are a perfect example of a SITster; warm, receptive and you always have something valid to say. Well, usually. There was that one time about the shoes..

    Kori says

    You are definitly a celebrity around these parts. Congratulations on being a classic. Audrey Hepburn is a classic and everyone loves her just like we all love you.

    (on a side note a woman that was oh let’s say mid to late 30’s came into my job today wearing a tubetop. She also had no teeth. Not that that matters but maybe that’s a requirment.)

    BTW, catching up on reading and I LOVED your Photo Friday story….speaking to the hearts of momo mommies!

  20. 85 says

    I think this is awesome! Especially for a Pacific Northwestern-er to be featured. Yeah.

    Congrats and thanks for sharing,

    Vicki says

    A classic! Those never go out of style. Congrats! I must say I’m not surprised…I don’t know of another blogger who gets as many comments as you do!

    I so know what you are saying. I loved my day of fame but it seemed like it was over to quickly. I want more. Now I will just hope to be one of the classics.

    Kelsey says

    I’ve been blogging for 3 months and I’m just now finding “blog communities”, so maybe I’ll be famous one day too!

  26. 133

    Jennie says

    it’s ok, we all need to be fomewhat famous in our own minds, don’t we…. kinda like walking down the street and having your own theme music, now that would be super cool….

    Jennifer P. says

    I get occassionaly called “the famous Jennifer P.” and try not to let it go to my head. It just feels soooooo good for a writer to have people like to read what she has to write. It was sure fun to be “classics”, wasn’t it :)?

    Sorry I missed this post before!

    Migraine Mom says

    Shame on me….I always forget about SITS!! I try so hard to keep up with it all, but I never seem to hit ALL of my buttons. I do try to keep up with you though because I enjoy your blog.

    I’ve given you an award!! You can pick it up on my blog.

    Thanks for writing, yes the blue dress she has is amniazg. I know that she got it custom made in India. If you are planning on going to India I am sure one of the shops can make you a similar dress. I hope that helps.

    – This is getting a bit frthuer subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has frthuer flair, along with some cool features similar β€˜Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on individual of those will center on that item, plus another set of ab neighbors bb will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or viewers. Speaking of people, the Zune ab Social bb is in addition grand fun, letting you find others with shared tastes in addition to becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can avoid the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.November 5, 2012 9:33 am

Because of exploring through the internet and coming across views which were not productive, I was thinking my entire life was well over.

Your main know-how and kindness in taking care of a lot of things was vital. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a thing like this. I’m able to now look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this specialized and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to endorse your web blog to any individual who wants and needs assistance about this issue.November 7, 2012 5:28 am
