It's Make Your Partner Do What I Say Day *a recently recognized holiday*

OK.

The other day myself and a few peeps (Wad up!? I'm 28 and from Western PA, you don't think I can hang with da thugs? I watch The Wire now. I've got lots of rep in West Baltimore) If you don't know what I'm talking about please ignore this whole paragraph and move on, otherwise you'll lose all respect for me and any writing prowess you thought I might have (or had).

Anyways, me and a few of my homegirls were talking about getting our significant others to post on our blogs...like a special blogging holiday. We pick a day, make (I mean, strongly urge) our significant others to write a post and have it done by that day...then we'll post the post and we'll all talk about it.

The whole idea was 'What is *insert bloggers name here* really like" or "What it's really like to live with *insert bloggers name here*".

We're always on here telling our own stories and inccessantly talking about ourselves, why not have someone call us out on it and write about the real us. I talked to Jeremiah about it last night and he was quiet for a really long time. Obviously thinking about all the hilarious and embarrassing things he could write about me!

Well, what do you think?

If you don't have a partner, your best friend could write it, or yo momma or whoever...you're all smart people, you're picking up what I'm laying down, right?

Comment here or email me and I'll pick a date and start immeadiately annoying Jeremiah about writing his post...

This will be so much fun!

I think it's an awesome idea.

Except for the fact that I can't use my cool significant other 'cause I don't have one and I'll have to use my best friend and that might make me look like a lesbian, but there's no way in hell I'm using my mom.

Let's do it.

My wife and I did a blog swap at the end of September, and it worked out great! Granted, she refused to let me touch her for two weeks afterward, but I got 2 new subscribers out of it. That's a net win!

Aly: So far it's just you and me kid. Well, you and me and Jeremiah and your best friend...and we can link Jay's and his wife's posts and pretend like they were part of our holiday...

Jay: Aly and I are going to link yours and your wife's posts and pretend like you were part of our holiday...

haha.

I am SOOO down! Although, I am a little nervous.

1 request. Sent the date for at least 2 or 3 weeks in the furture. I am still trying to get my other half to write a guest blog about a movie he saw and didn't take me too!

Erin, I love you, but this frightens me to no end.

Petit fleur said...

I gotta go with John Pender on this one... ;-)

Prosy said...

I'm 100% down with everyone else doing a guest post, but I don't have anyone to write one for me...maybe I could just pretend to have someone else write it, and they could say really great things about me.

I'd love to, but when I asked my husband he looked like he was going to get sick.

could be tricky.

Now I'm excited! My best friend is a fucking mental case. This should be GOOD.

Or extremely embarrassing and I'll have to slink away and hide for a week from your bloggy judgment.

It's a brilliant idea! Pick a date, and I'll pass it on.
P.S. sweeper photos in previous post - priceless. *snort*

I absolutely love this idea, but I need permission to correct David's spelling before he posts anything, since he spells phonetically, and it is my blog and I do have my pride. ;)

Mrs. Cullen said...

hehe thats a good idea=)

booshy said...

I think that'd be awesome ...bur it'd totally give away that I am THE uncoolest person on the planet...

I guess I can hide FOREVER :)

I lost my 7th wife to malaria, my 8th to marco and my 9th at Disneyland so the only person I can feature on me blog is interesting me.

ladytruth said...

What a fun idea! Getting the real dirt on the dirt throwers in a way, right? Can't wait to read what Jeremiah says about our lovely, supermom Erin!
