Waiting for paint to dry…

By Pinktoesandpowertools | Random Thoughts + Ramblings

Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted!  I do have the second primer coat on the bedside table today, so I’m thinking it will be finished up in the next day or two for the reveal.  Gotta throw some school shopping in the middle of it all–the kids go back next week.  Bummer.  I’m just as bad as they are at the end of the year, ready for it to be over, and then I dread the first day in the fall.  It’s just so relaxed in the summer.  And I like the activity and noisiness of my kids at home.  And I don’t like getting up at 6:30 in the morning either!!

But about 2 weeks into the year, I am loving having the house to myself too.  I’ll keep saying that to myself as I go out and dig in the bottom of the bins for the 20 cent glue sticks to check off the supply list.

So while I was sitting here in my back-to-school frump, I decided to check out my spam comment folder on my blog.  I had once discovered a legitimate comment in the folder, so it was worth a peek.  And I discovered that it is a fantastic way to make yourself feel better! No kidding.  See what I mean:

Youre so awesome, man! I cant believe I missed this blog for so long. Its just great stuff all round. Your design, man…too amazing! I cant wait to read what youve got next. I love everything that youre saying and want more, more, MORE! Keep this up, man! Its just too good.

Now I realize that this is all automated spam, but all of it is so complimentary!  And I get a lot more comments in there than on the actual blog.  I picked out two that I am going to pretend are real.

This one is from myhomeinspiration.com, which actually looked like a legitimate site.  I’m kinda hoping this one is a legitimate comment too 🙂

I can see that you are putting a lots of efforts into your blog. Keep posting the good work.Some really helpful information in there. Bookmarked. Nice to see your site. Thanks!

And how could a blogger not love this one???

I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!

Awww, shucks <blush>

So if you’ve got a blog, don’t clean out that spam folder without first checking it out.  You never know–someone out there might think you’re famous 😉
