I Am Honored, Farklempt, and Completely Pissed Off

Posted on February 20, 2013


Peg, of Peg-o-Leg’s Ramblings, is one of those bloggers who regularly knocks me down to size, which is completely depressing since I am 5’1″ tall and usually totter around in high heels and big hats so no one notices.  Except they do anyway. Back to Peg.  Every time I write one of my world class, priceless posts and sit back to receive the accolades, Peg writes one of hers which is often just as funny (or, damn, funnier) AND she uses TECHNOLOGY to doctor photos and illustrations to make her legions of followers howling in delight. 

To make matters even worse, she is like the Mother Teresa of the blogging world, giving other bloggers clever formats to promote their work. Her latest is called “THIS One Should Have Been Freshly Pressed, ”  in which she has, in her words, “invited some of my blogging buddies to select their best, overlooked posts.” She continues, “I had to twist some arms to get them to admit they thought their stuff was worthy of the coveted FP because, while most of these people are way more talented than I, they’re also a lot more modest. She plans to run a post by a different blogger every Wednesday.

Note: To show my own embarrassing lack of modesty, I was the first blogger to send her a post.  So if you go to her site now (drop everything else you are doing–it’s not that important), you will see a post I wrote last May.  So thank you Peg.  I really am honored.  And farklempt.  And not pissed off.  I just wrote that to get your attention.
