Things I like today… Chapter 6

 

I like:

This beer we found at a liquor store in New Hampshire.

 

 

IMG_5520

 

It had a rich, dark, oaky finish….. and also made me laugh.

 

I like :

This meme my husband’s niece posted on FB.

 

IMG_5571

 

It’s uncannily accurate.

My husband can spot a red tailed hawk in the top of  a tree on the northbound side of the highway while flying down the southbound side at 90mph…. but can’t find his socks. Which are in his sock drawer, where they’ve been for the past 35 years.

Someone please explain that to me.

 

I like :

This giant pink flamingo my husband’s nephew brought out to the Island for the kids to float on.

 

IMG_5572

 

Did I mention he’s a rough, tough lobsterman…

And it didn’t quite fit on his boat?

 

I like :

Reusable grocery bags.

Less plastic and less waste to clog our landfills.

Of course I’m proof positive that saying is pure crap.

I’m 55… and not a single thing about me feels new again.

 

Things I like today… chapter 5.

 

I like….

Finding that just right product at T.J. Maxx.

Pig collagen.

Because have you ever seen a wrinkled pig?

I like…

Taking the guess work out of what to get me for my birthday.

Good clean fun…. yes sirree.

 

I like…

Hummingbirds who pull up a chair and sit a while.

 

IMG_0908

 

As this one did the other day on our back deck.

2,000 meals a day and sleep the whole night thru?

I totally want to be a hummingbird now.

I like….

Okay, technically I don’t know if I like it yet because I just bought it.

 

IMG_E5506

 

But a 100 calorie cocktail?

 

IMG_E5507

 

What’s not to like?

And finally, I like….

This sign.

 

IMG_5519

 

Because who can argue with that?

 

Apparently, he likes me.

 

Sometimes WordPress makes me laugh because I follow a lot of funny people.

 

 

Sometimes it makes me laugh because a lot of funny people follow me.

 

 

And sometimes it makes me laugh for totally unexpected reasons.

Like the other day when I clicked my notifications and saw this:

 

7864523

 

Clearly I must make TANBHIR laugh because he liked the hell out of every comment I made on one of my old posts.

Every single comment.

That’s a lot of laughing.

 

 

Not enough for him to actually comment back or add anything to the thread, but clearly TANBHIR likes the like button.

Unfortunately since TANBHIR  (Who must be a serious fellow since his name is all CAPS) only wants to help me make money online so I did not return the favor and like him back. I also removed him from my followers list.

Sorry TANBHIR, but I’m not here to make money.

Better luck next time.

 

 

I like…

 

I like

The sign a friend of mine saw while on vacation in Barbados last week.

 

IMG_4390

 

I don’t like –

That she was in Barbados and I was not.

 

 

I like

Jo Malone’s line of products.

Check them out.

 

IMG_4186

 

I don’t like –

Her price tags  ($35 for a bar of soap? For that price, I want someone to wash me with it. Preferably Bradley Cooper or Johnny Depp)  which is why I buy the itty bitty sampler bottles.

 

IMG_4187

 

$155 on the site, slightly less on Amazon… if you can find them.

No one around here sells Jo Malone and I’m not buying a full bottle until I test it.

But they rock!

Trust me on this…

(See how I snuck a Game of Thrones reference in there?)

I like

The sound of this drink for summer.

 

IMG_4322

IMG_4323

 

I don’t like –

The idea of walking around with a blue tongue all night.

(Or day, who are we kidding?)

 

c1571b455a00de03752ca20fe466fa41

 

I like

The tee shirt I found the other day.

 

IMG_E4301

 

I don’t like –

The fact that there are only 4 more episodes of Thrones left.

Sigh.

Drive by likings….

 

I love to blog.

 

9e33360f29b98de02e122109b1fb3a3b

 

(I like to think so… but in reality? No.)

I love to read other people’s blogs.

(That looks more like an ostrich egg, but who am I to turn down free food?)

I love to comment on other people’s blogs and have them comment on mine.

(Yes…. Yes I can.)

For me, it’s all about connecting. And I’ve been doing it for over 14 years.

Finding a small tribe of like minded weirdos is comforting, and I enjoy it.

So while I’m relatively new here, and I realize WordPress is a large site with scores of people who try to profit from, or make a living out of it…. I’m constantly dumbfounded by the amount of shadow bloggers who inhabit this space.

They like my post, sometimes they follow me…. when I know damn well they’ve never read a single word I’ve written.

Do they even exist?

 

blogging-meme1

 

Example.

 

jiyudrtf

 

This person (?) has 418 followers…

And 85 likes on a post that isn’t even a post.

WTH?

How can you like something that doesn’t exist?

(Okay, never mind… that’s fabulous.)

But please tell me what the point is here, because I’m confused.

Drive by likings.

Shadow followers.

Why?
