A Plea To De-Lurk My Friend

Dear Readers,

I have a favor to ask of you.  You see, I have this friend ... (don't start rolling your eyes, I'm not asking for money or a liver or anything) who I just adore.  We've been friends since somewhere between 6th and 7th grade.  She's bright, charming, funny, and has the cutest damn baby evah.  

Here's the thing.  She's a lurker.  (Gotcha' Courtney!)  She reads the blogs on my blog roll.  Uh-huh.  She LOVES you guys almost as much as I do.  She calls me from many states away, just to talk ... about blogs.  BUT, have you seen her name in your comments?  Noooo.  Have you seen a link to her blog?  Nooooo.

This is where you come in.  Please tell Courtney that she needs to start blogging.  The girl is just plain funny.  And clever.  And a little goofy.  And neurotic (oh, no, Court?  Then, what's up with the baby powder in the hair?  Huh?  Go ahead.  Prove me wrong, on your own damn blog!).  

(I swear the girl was JUST putting baby powder in her hair...)
I'm sure she has plenty of good stories to tell.  Like about the time when we snuck into a 7-11 and stole ....  Or the "blue couch" story ... Or the Friends At Thanksgiving thingies she does ... Or the time she danced like Madonna at a Catholic School with nuns ... Yeah.  There's some dirt there.

Look at what a pretty bride she was...

She made me cry at her enthusiasm...

And, did I mention the cutest baby?  Sheez.

So please, use the comments to tell her ass to stop lurking, and get blogging.  

Courtney needs a blog.  
Courtney needs a blog.  
Come on, say it with me, 
Courtney needs a blog!

Looks like you have no choice, Courtney! (Pssst...I've done the powder in the hair and guess what? Now they SELL powder in salons to use in your hair!)

Hi Courtney, I started a blog about 5 times before I actually stuck to it. And I'm proud to say that I've been at it now for just over a month!!! YOU CAN DO IT! If I can (with my crazy schedule) you can too.

With a child that cute, you'll need blog therapy. Go ahead...it's much more fun than LURKING.

Nothing like a little peer pressure Courtney.

What's her take on it, though? Does she want to?

My Ice Cream Diary said...

What? You can't leave all those post teasers. Courtney, please start a blog so you can let us in on all these inside stories.

I tried not to blog for so long, but I finally gave in to the peer pressure and have loved it ever since!

tommie said...

Trish said...

I am not one to talk because I have quit blogging - BUT that was to make room in cyberspace for YOU! Yeah that's it!

So, Cortney, if you don't start a blog straight away, I am going to tell everyone your MIDDLE NAME! AND about how you used to live and pee on Pluto!

jamie's MOM - Your former carpool driver!

Jennifer H said...

Oh come on, Courtney. You know you want to!

GoteeMan said...

C'mon Courtney - strut yo stuff....

Alaina said...

All your friends are doing it... come on... it's not bad. Old people just say it is because they don't understand us. They try to keep us down.

Lindsey said...

Courtney (AKA the lurker) needs a blog. Be like NIKE and just do it!

Courtney said...

Holy moly, that is some pressure! Sorry to my fan club for the late response, we were on vacation with no internet.
Thanks for the rave review jame, I guess now I HAVE to drink the kool-aid and join the party ;)
So jamie is right about the neurotic part, that is what keeps telling me I am not up to par with all the fabulous writers out there that I LURK!!
So here is my proposal...
Jamie if YOU come and visit me with your kiddos and help me set it up(b/c that is the other hold up, I am SERIOUSLY computer deficient) then I will start a blog. Is it a deal?!
love you and thanks for all the sweet comments, C

P.S. to all, jamie was my partner in crime in a LOT of those crazy stories!!
