"So we're in the basement of her place, drinking,bullshitting, and reminiscing. Somehow and someway, around five people ended up on her bed... which then promptly broke. Yes, The Steff has a broken bed. So guess what I'm doing tomorrow morning? Right... trying to fix The Steff's bed. After the bed broke, well I guess that was enough ruckus for most of the people there, and in drips and drabs they left."

5 drunk people on a bed ... that paragraph could have gone SO many places. :) Especially when the bed broke. LOL

I love Pile of Bones' new design. Great layout, user friendly, easier to read than his former theme. Good job! Always an interesting read.

Now don't think I got drunk alone. Last night I went to hang out with The Steff for the first time in at least a month. Her house was empty and she was having a few friends from her new job over, and had me come over since the last time we planned a night out she thoroughly ditched me for New Guy B. Now what you need to understand is that although these people work at her new job, half of them have also worked for me. In fact, her new boss and I have known each other for years and have equally embarassing blackmailable photos of each other from Woodstock '99.

I like that Pile of Bones always writes something upbeat, a bit whimsical. You can always tell that there's a smile on the face while the writing's going on. And that works for me.

"Ok... I know I said my weekend goodbye already... but I couldn't resist this... just to show you all how messed up in the head The Nick is because of the Giant... here she is... golden yellow sweater... stone washed jeans... and pink furry boots!"

At least one thing I like? What's not to love about a blog with pink furry boots? Fantastic!

Great idea! I just started a contest on my blog too. If you like chocolate, check it out!
Here's the paragraph:
"Ok... I know I said my weekend goodbye already... but I couldn't resist this... just to show you all how messed up in the head The Nick is because of the Giant... here she is... golden yellow sweater... stone washed jeans... and pink furry boots!"

And what do I like about his blog? I LOVE the tagline! LOL

"These blogs, those of a personal nature, are not money making machines nor are they a bunch of zeros and ones arranged in a pretty little way for shits and giggles… for they are also a part of our souls and what we put into them will be the level of satisfaction we get out of them. "
What I like most ? Definetely the template.
As for the blogexplosion name, it's the same as the one used in blogger - shrinkmamma .

Matthew! Thanks so much! You actually made my blogging day.

I got a comment on my other site (Tricia's Musings) that kind of made me angry, but then I checked my e-mail and discovered your lovely winning gift of 100 credits and well, that balanced everything out for me, so thank you. :) I'd rather be happy.
