Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Hello! Hello! Blogosphere, Hello! And may I be the first (or 400th) to wish you HAPPY SPRING!


Hi I’m Kirsty! And I’m a blogaholic.

If you have clicked here from the UBP, may I be the first to congratulate you on that excellent instinct, because this here is one heck of a happening party.

Actually in the interests of full disclosure: it’s just me here with my sugar free jello and my illegal whipped cream..see


(I am half heartedly doing the South Beach Diet in an attempt to lose the 10lbs I received for my birthday this year-lucky me! I’m so spoiled).

And if truth be told, I am not much in a partying mood having earlier this evening witnessed my sweet, adorable and pretty much perfect in practically every way recently rescued dog, have a seizure. Scary, scary stuff. She’s fine now, thank you for your concern. I have four lovely children too. My one and only daughter (aged 8) almost needed sedation after witnessing the ordeal. She and I tend to be laid-back that way.


So I was going to blow the whole thing off and settle for going to bed after a few more squirts of whipped cream, but upon visiting my post for last years UBP I realized that some of my favourite followers were procured thusly. In other words, I met some fantastic people through UBP 2009. Lovely bloggers who I have grown to consider real friends stumbled upon my blog and I upon theirs during last year’s soiree and it would be sad, nay tragic to miss out on such an opportunity again.

Soo…**snapping out of melancholy, breaking out a jar of almonds and some mozarella string cheese*****-now that’s what I call a party. whohooooooooo!!! Let’s go!

If you want to find out more about me. Check it out. That would be the All About Me tab (at the top of the page). It’s a tad outdated but you’ll get the gist. And it’s fascinating stuff. Hold onto your hat.

I have a compulsive need to give prizes…must.give.away. So in honour of this auspicious occasion I will give to one lucky commenter the following glorious prize package: 1 pair of lovely earrings, 1 lovely candle housed in picturesque pear shaped ceramic, 1 box of ferrero rocher chocolates and a little surprise all wrapped up pretty for you! Because you’re special. You’re good enough, you’re smart enough and darnit people like you. (Especially me!)

I just stopped over from UBP! Nice to read a little bit about you. Glad that your dog is doing okay. I had something terrible happen to my favorite dogs many years ago, and those kinds of things are hard to witness and they stay with you. Love the Stuart Smalley ref too :) Will see more of you in the future!

Your dog is beautiful!-- but I've always liked golden retrievers, so I'm a little biased. My husband is known by his family as "The Dog Whisperer" because he is the only one that can successfully calm one of their dogs through its frequent seizures. Perhaps I could send him over next time it happens to you!
