Just When You Thought You’d Had More Laughing Housewife Than You Could Stomach…

Yin and Yang

Yin & Yang, milk & honey, Starsky & Hutch…lots of good things come in twos.

This week, I have twice been featured on other blogs: one is a delightful and surprise gift; the other was written at my request.  One is  in praise of laughter; the other poked fun at me.  One is a positive and life-affirming blog; the other a little, erm, seamier.

Thank you, Nancy at Spirit Lights The Way and Lou at Necrotic Hijinks for reminding me that it’s good for the soul to be both lauded and laughed at; so long as we don’t take either too seriously, we have a happy balance.

I recommend that you take a look at both blogs: Nancy never met a comment which she didn’t answer with care and consideration; Lou will poke fun at you if you ask him.  Thanks also to Corkscrewboohoo for pointing me in his direction.  

I think.

    Lol. Love your review on Necrotic Hijinks. 🙂 Brave woman! I might volunteer my blog one day.

    Also loved Nancy’s review. I’m a new follower so it was good being led to earlier posts that I’d missed.

      Glad you enjoyed them. One of the things I love about blogging is being led to new blogs I’d never have found otherwise.

      You should volunteer yourself 🙂

    Congratulations! Well-deserved recognition.

    Brave to put yourself forward….

    My, my Tilly Bud. While I’ve been on vacation you sure have made the rounds. Guess I’d better not leave you alone again.

    Being panned by “Necrotic” is actually a tribute to how much he enjoys your writing. Imagine the number of slackers that end up in his cyber trash can without comment.
    But “Spirit” really hits the nail on the head (or the funny bone as it were). I, for one, will be sending you a bill for all the keyboards ruined by “spit up.”

    My pleasure, TillyB!

    And thanks for your kinds words and links!
    You rock!

      Love the other post . . . a bit risque, though. 😳


    • Tilly Bud July 29, 2011 at 17:43 #

      No, you rock 🙂

      Let’s start a band.

    I loved Nancy’s post. Right on the money 😀

    Certainly two egg streams!

    I have been forced by you to throw my good hat into the ring of willful victimization. The lengths I will go to for any sort of self-promotion is astounding. But I have always been told that there is not such thing as “Bad Publicity.”

    So, how many readers have you lost so far since NH discovered your true identity? Since I have the World’s Sexiest Blog Award, there is no pretense on my part. You, however, claim to be just an ordinary housewife, while bubbling underneath is this drug-laced Malteaser eating Dominatrix. Live and learn.

    THBAAAAFC (Until your copy of my Lexicon arrives, that translates as “This Has Been An Attempt At A Funny Comment,” and is pronounced th-BAAAAF-kah.)


    • Tilly Bud July 29, 2011 at 17:49 #

      lol 😀

      Self-promotion is the only way. I used to be embarrassed but now I tell everyone I meet, ‘I write a blog’, and then I tell them how to find me.

    Congrats on being features. How awesome.

    Good for you to be so daring! 🙂 How did the hubby take it? Our Nancy is a gem 🙂

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
