Internet, did you know that I’ve been Sally Nordaning for TEN YEARS NOW? I think about Little Baby Sally and her little blog posts and ohhh, she was adorable, telling you what she ate for dinner and about all her deep thoughts. Part of that is just how blogging was in 2004, or at least how it was for me. While I no longer think you care about my dinner (that’s for Twitter anyway!), I do still want to tell you about things, even if it’s once a month and hardly anyone comments anymore THANKS A LOT EVERYONE.

Anyway, things:

1. You should follow Dr. Ruth on Twitter.
2. Do you want to read about a lady whose retarded menstruation caused her to kill her lover? Here you go.
3. Spike drew an awesome bad guy the other day: it was just a butt with a mustache and a hat.
4. I have a boyfriend! I referred to him here. I’ve learned to be a little more private online, so I’m afraid I’m not going to tell you much, but I will offer you this quiz and let you come to your own conclusions.

QUESTION ONE. Boyfriend is 4th cousins with which trashy country singer?
a. Tanya Tucker
b. Tammy Wynette
c. Barbara Mandrell
d. Crystal Gayle

BONUS: My favorite hotdog-based recipe in this Trashy Country Singer Cousin’s Cookbook is what?
a. Velveeta-Weenie Casserole
b. Hotdog Pie
c. E-Z Corn Dogs

QUESTION TWO. My favorite thing about him is what?
a. he is hilarious and I get to laugh A LOT
b. nothing fazes him
c. he is sane
d. he has really good hair
e. our first kiss was on my birthday in 1996 on the side of my kind-of-boyfriend’s house
f. his house is cleaner than mine
g. did I mention he’s hilarious?
h. we have many, many friends in common
i. he fixes stuff around my house
j. we hold hands while we sleep

5. I realize that there’s nothing worse than someone on the internet yammering on about their wonderful relationship, but I think once every ten years is appropriate. Hashtag yammer.

    I think this means I’ve been reading you for many of those 10 years. Craziness! I don’t comment much anymore because I read a lot of blogs on Feedly now instead of just clicking through the list of blogs on the side of my own blog like I did for many years too many. However, you and Mimi Smartypants are still my favorite “treat” blogs that don’t update very often but are wonderful each time they do.

    Could you please post a picture of the butt with a mustache?

    I don’t know the answer to question 1, but in my dream of dreams, it’d be d. All that long hair!

    I find yammering about being happy far preferable to yammering about being miserable. So, yay! Boyfriends are awesome!

    And yeah, I passed my 10 year blog anniversary too, although reading entries from 2003 is sort of weird.

    Most random startling thing about this blog post: I had no idea Dr. Ruth was still alive.

    P.S. I hope it’s Crystal Gayle too. And Velveeta-Weenie Casserole.

    Though a latecomer to your wonderful blog, I am still paying attention and laughing in what I hope are all the right places. I am also extremely happy to know that you are happy. I agree with Poubou re: boyfriends. All the best from up here in the (still!) frozen North.
