Housekeeping and Marching Orders

On occasion, I've been known to turn to you guys to help me out a bit. I usually do this for one of two reasons:

A) I value and respect your readership, participation, feedback and all around hotness; or
B) I can't come up with anything good to write about to save my life.

I'm happy to report that battling traffic on the way home last night allowed me to come up with a handful of ideas that will keep me going for a while. So...it's your hotness, of course (really, there was never any doubt - your ass looks fabulous today).

Step 1: Check out my blogroll (I updated it just a while ago).
Step 2: If you're not on it, open up the comments and tell me!
Step 3: If you are on it, say hi anyway and let me know who else I should be checking out.
Step 4: If you're a lurker, or don't have a site, say hi anyway!

There you have it, your marching orders. Make me proud, Internets!

Hi! Am I really first??

Posted by: Steff at October 3, 2007 7:50 AM

Hi there! It's just me. Nothing original to say, the coffee's brewing, the baby's not crying...so far, so good.

Posted by: Sam at October 3, 2007 7:57 AM

I'm on the blog roll and you're on mine. Following orders and saying hi.

Here's something to write about: what makes gov't employees think that they can spend taxpayer money to not only fly first class themselves, but also to extend the taxpayer courtesy to all of their family members (from NYT):

"Ms. Terpstra’s travels drew particular scrutiny. She spent $163,000 for 25 premium-class trips over 15 months. At least 10 of the trips, which cost $62,000, involved flights to Western Europe. Written policy at the agency where she worked, the Foreign Agricultural Service, explicitly prohibited flying to Europe on business or first class, the report said."

For some reason, this story strikes me as funny. Maybe because I fly in coach all the time for my job (hello Southwest - when not getting upgraded on Delta) and would never pass the charge for this to the client. But we all should be angry because it's all of our tax money going to pay for these people's vacations (soooo thankful to have an SCorp! :)

OK I am probably one of the few out there who doesn't have SOME sort of site but...saying Hi anyways...
Maybe when I have a child to write about someday you can add me to your blogroll then :) - deal?

Posted by: Stephanie at October 3, 2007 8:31 AM

I'm here, not really de-lurking since I comment here fairly regularly, but I am saying hi.

As for the blogroll...my previous incarnation (d. Feb/07) is on it but my current one (b. Feb/07) is, sadly, not:

Hi from a known lurker.

Posted by: hazelhazel at October 3, 2007 8:42 AM

I'm there, on the blogroll, but god knows I don't deserve to be... Can I just say, I am loving your photography these days! If you ever draw a blank just post more pics!

Posted by: Amber at October 3, 2007 8:43 AM

How, um, do you keep up with all the blogs? I find I barely have time to keep up with my pathetic google reader page. Barely! I admire your bloginess.

Posted by: blacksheeped at October 3, 2007 8:44 AM

Hey, thanks for putting us on your 'roll. We just found out yesterday we are having a baby boy. Hope over to read a post about what happened with our first kid, and the first ultrasound. Good times!

Posted by: Josh at October 3, 2007 8:48 AM

YES SIR - just saying hi like you told me to. Have a great day!!

Posted by: Dawn at October 3, 2007 8:48 AM

Hi!

I am on your blogroll, but with my old URL (which is totally fine though, because it re-directs to my new site).

Posted by: Jessie at October 3, 2007 9:01 AM

Sniff...sniff...alas, I cannot find myself.

I feel so alone.

Posted by: Sharon at October 3, 2007 9:02 AM

I'm just here for weekly "you're not going to believe what happened at work today in the men's room" story...

Although I had that happen this morning to me! I was minding my own business and this cell phone starts ringing in the stall next to me... and she actually answered it and started having a conversation!!

It was all I could do to get out of there without laughing hysterically louder and louder as she continued her call.

I don't have a site, well if you count myspace where I do blog every now and then...

Posted by: Michelle at October 3, 2007 9:03 AM

I have no idea how blogrolls work and whether you require reciprocal links (which I can't really do on Vox). Either way, if you felt like adding my blog to your roll, that'd be cool but I totally understand if you can't or don't feel like it. In the meantime, I'm going to have to check out some of those blogs...if people are half as creative as their blog titles, I'm in for some excellent reading :-)

Posted by: Ross at October 3, 2007 9:05 AM

Delurking...to tell you you're the devil. So many new sites for me to check out on your blogroll! There goes today's productivity. I should really get my own site, hmm...

Posted by: Megan at October 3, 2007 9:08 AM

Holy blogroll, batman, do really read all those?

Posted by: Bunny at October 3, 2007 9:09 AM

Hey, I'm willing to beg for a link.

Posted by: Jeff St Real at October 3, 2007 9:11 AM

I'm not on. Sniff sniff. But you might not like reading my blog anyway! :-)

Posted by: Katherine at October 3, 2007 9:12 AM

Hi!

I'm on there with the old URL (not that I'd expect you to have the new one, since I just set it up yesterday) but it redirects so no problem.

Posted by: Kate the Shrew at October 3, 2007 9:14 AM

I'm mostly a lurker; I think I've commented a couple of times, but I peek in every day. I love your blog.

Posted by: Rachel at October 3, 2007 9:19 AM

delurking since you asked so nicely!

Nope, I'm not on your blogroll, but truly, I have a very boring blog. Old lady mom and all.

However, I LOVE reading your site, and coincidentally, I read So The Fish Said daily too :) You are both quite talented writers!

I also commute to DC ("Monkeytown") every day, but from the Eastern Shore of MD. I think we must work in the same part of DC, I swear I see the same cross dresser you talk about frequently!

Posted by: 3jaysmom at October 3, 2007 9:20 AM

Damn, what an evil-genius plot to get comments! I once again bow to your mastery. (Yeah, I'm on it, and thanks. I am pretty sure you're on mine, but I'll check today because I haven't updated it in ages.)

Posted by: Candy at October 3, 2007 9:21 AM

I'm on your blogroll.

Janet and Michelle are local blogging friends of mine. :)

Posted by: Lisa at October 3, 2007 9:24 AM

I'm on but you should come by because I changed all my blog stuff up and I think I lost some readers with a change in RSS feed. Haven't seen you lately so I wonder if I lost you too? Or you could just be terribly busy with a job, new house, toddler and baby on the way. I choose to believe it's the RSS feed. :-)

Posted by: donna at October 3, 2007 9:25 AM

I am not on there either... sobbing. I kid. At least I do not see it on there but holy shit that is long blog roll!

Oh thanks, I needed that whole ass comment - I was feeling a little under appreciated today what with the screaming child and rushing to work with the coffee that was way too hot...

Posted by: Christina at October 3, 2007 9:25 AM

Hi!
One site that never fails to crack me up is www.missdoxie.com.

Posted by: Traci at October 3, 2007 9:25 AM

Im on it! :) And thanks for the compliment. Its a great way to start the day to hear how awesome my ass looks. :)

Posted by: alfredsmom at October 3, 2007 9:28 AM

yay im on the blogroll. only one thing....i dont use that page any more :) and i dropped the metal horns. got too many cheesey jokes about it. new page is www.madmomny.wordpress.com. thanks!! now id better go an update over there, its been a while.

Posted by: madmom at October 3, 2007 9:38 AM

Hey there - Happy Delurking Day

Posted by: TheQueen at October 3, 2007 9:41 AM

happy almost canadian thanksgiving from a fellow person suffering from what i refer to as the "wow i sound like that lady who did the voices in the exorcist" illness.

for a site to see, can i suggest smittenkitchen.com? it's a food blog yes, and you'll have to weed out the non-vegetarian friendly items, but the pictures are aweome and while some of the recipes are so over the top one can only dream, it can lead to inspiration.

like homemade oreo cookies. mmmmmmm.

Posted by: meg at October 3, 2007 9:48 AM

I'm not on there but as I don't consider myself a real blogger, that's okay. Hi anyway!

Sadly I am without bloggy goodness but I come to say howdy anyway because it is YOUR hottness that keeps me coming back for more ;)

Posted by: Kris at October 3, 2007 9:59 AM

Awesome! I made it to the blogroll! Or maybe I was on it before and just didn't know. I need to wear my glasses more.

ok,I'm a rule follower...so Hello. No blog of my own to offer, but I love reading yours. And I do comment on Beth's so I should spread the love to you I guess! May I suggest www.gofugyourself.com , always worth a laugh!

Posted by: diane at October 3, 2007 10:06 AM

Delurking.... You got lucky - whenever I ask people to delurk on my blog, no one comments. Maybe I have no readers. That's a sad thought.

Love the site!

Posted by: Kelly at October 3, 2007 10:16 AM

Hello!

Posted by: BID at October 3, 2007 10:23 AM

No site, just a Myspace (which does not even count) and saying hi! :)

Posted by: Stephanie at October 3, 2007 10:29 AM

Delurking to say holy crap that is a long blogroll. I will have to come back to it when I don't have 7500 words due in the next two and a half weeks.

Love your blog, keep up the great writing. (Wouldn't want to give me too much free time now would you?)

Posted by: Missy at October 3, 2007 10:33 AM

Hey! I'm on the blogroll. Cool. Thanks!
Most of my daily reads are there too. It's quite an incestuous little bloggy world, isn't it?

Posted by: alison at October 3, 2007 10:41 AM

You really know how to make a girl feel special - thanks for noticing my super-hotness.

My girl learned how to say "cactus" last night. Your hotness notwithstanding, it was unfortuantely just from a picture in a book. But, still . . . she's gotta know whose blogroll mommy made it onto!
(and who is on mommy's list)

Now - can we talk about how someone can become a high school teacher without knowing a single thing about Ramadan?

Posted by: kate at October 3, 2007 10:42 AM

Thanks for the link to my sparsely posted to blog! :)
I say, check out Tomato Nation! Sars is a cool kid and I have been reading her blog since 1999. She's currently running a Donor Choose (donorschoose.org) blog challenge. It's a really cool site that lets people give money to teachers to fund projects for the classroom. I bet you have enough readers to do one! I'd contribute!
Keep up the good work Chris!

Posted by: tulip at October 3, 2007 10:44 AM

I'm a lurker. Love your site and your wife's. I always look forward to your "Tales from the Restroom". Hilarious!

Posted by: Varinia at October 3, 2007 10:46 AM

HI RC! Happy Wed!
I think you should also be reading Matt Miller at Maybe Baby. He is an insightful and sensitive writer that shares a ton of stuff (sometimes funny, sometimes sad) and he his wife are on the road to conception....and it is being chronicled quite beautifully.

Hey, and thanks. Nobody wants to read the inner conflicts of a liberal whatever in the sticks of WA, not that it stops me from writing.

Posted by: bhd at October 3, 2007 10:52 AM

Usually read via RSS feed. Just thought I'd say Hi and that I really enjoy reading your blog.

Posted by: Darren at October 3, 2007 10:53 AM

I'm just popping in to delurk and say hi, since I'm already on the list. The mammoth, huge, amazing list that I will be clicking back to when I am bored, as I haven't heard of many of these sites.

Your hard work has made my boredom less of a burden. Thank you, Chris!

Posted by: SpaceCase at October 3, 2007 10:54 AM

Hey there! *waves*

Posted by: Alison at October 3, 2007 10:59 AM

Your ass is looking mighty fine as well, today, sir. I'm a big fan of those pants.

You should totally check out http://whatwouldlizziebennetdo.com. She's awesome. Picture my general rambly style of writing, except with actual writing skill behind it and a complete obsession with Victorian British Literature (Jane Austen, etc). It's a new site, but she's already got some good stuff up there and I think it's going to be awesome.

Posted by: Dawn at October 3, 2007 11:03 AM

that's one heck of a roll! and i'm totally on there - woot!

p.s. hi

Posted by: malia at October 3, 2007 11:03 AM

Wow, I made the blogroll cut! Nice! I read you through a feed, so I rarely comment, but I do read every new post. I'm constantly amazed whenever I see a comment from you on my blog, because my god, you read a lot of blogs. When I see a comment from you, it's like I've been graced by the presence of ... greatness? Or, well, maybe just a rude cactus. Thanks for writing, and thanks for reading me, too!

Posted by: Jen at October 3, 2007 11:03 AM

Ooh! I'm on it! Awesome!

And thanks, I have new pants on today. I was wondering if anyone would notice.

Posted by: heels at October 3, 2007 11:19 AM

See, I have an opposite dilemma. I have things to write but no time to write them. Like my dream about NCIS' Michael Weatherly. Or my redecoration cycle that is about completed less money to buy a PS3.

But Mia sleeping in the big girl's bed is a big news you can write about...oh wait...your wife has dibs on that. ;-)

So...Hi!

Posted by: oakley at October 3, 2007 11:22 AM

Commenting. Because it's ordered on The Great Mofo Delurk Day per Schmutzie.

Posted by: Pammer at October 3, 2007 11:23 AM

I've commented a few times but I read your blog every day! You're witty and fun and interesting. Is that enough to get me on your blogroll or should I go on...
You're handsome and a great husband and your wife is beautiful and your kid is great : )

Posted by: Arwen at October 3, 2007 11:33 AM

Hello there. I'm not on the blogroll and, as much as I enjoy reading your blog, don't expect to be.

Thanks for writing an entertaining blog.

Posted by: ticknart at October 3, 2007 11:36 AM

That is quite a blogroll.....

And maybe you could write an article explaining why all 2 year olds scream like banshees when you try to wipe yogurt off their face with a super-soft paper towel?

Posted by: Jen at October 3, 2007 11:44 AM

I just wonder if you ever visit anyone on your blogroll? Do you comment or just lurk?

~~~hi~~~ (a faithful reader AND commenter)

Posted by: sue at October 3, 2007 11:52 AM

That may be the longest blogroll I've ever seen. How in the world would you ever have time to read that many blogs??? I'm lucky if Zoe lets me read one post every couple hours. And by the way... I'm not there... sniffle sniffle.

Posted by: Colleen at October 3, 2007 11:52 AM

Mimi Smartypants was the second blog I ever read (I found her via Defective Yeti, the first) and her writing and humor are absolute gold. If you ever have time, hunt her down and go through her archives for awhile. You won't be disappointed.

I've been meaning to start a blog for, gosh, 5 years now. You'll be the first to know when I do.

Posted by: You can call me, 'Sir' at October 3, 2007 11:55 AM

Hi! I am not on your blogroll that I can find...don't feel you have to add me though...

Also- thanks for the light box instructions. I am gonna try them one of these days. Really.

Posted by: Amy at October 3, 2007 12:04 PM

You might also enjoy this place: http://www.scrine.com/

Add a sentence whenever the need arises. Read other people's sentence-based spewings. It's oddly addictive, similar but less deadly than sweet sweet heroin.

I don't have a blog either, just a faithful reader of yours :)

Posted by: Danielle at October 3, 2007 12:07 PM

Following orders sir! I am not on the blogroll, but that's okay, I don't think with all the others you read you'd have time for mine. That's some blogroll you've got goin' on there...my goodness!!!

Posted by: Li'l Foot's Mommy at October 3, 2007 12:12 PM

Good grief - trying to find a blog that ISN'T on your blogroll is hard. I give you Holly at Nothing But Bonfires. She's great!

Posted by: jodi at October 3, 2007 12:27 PM

First, thanks for having me on your list.

Next - if you're actually sweeping up a bit - would you mind changing my link from my old site (overdressed) to my new one (I Am Not My Hair)?

thx!

Posted by: kalisah at October 3, 2007 12:44 PM

I had a lovely food blog... but I had to close it because of stalker issues. :(

Posted by: Alicia at October 3, 2007 12:45 PM

Lurker here... just writing to raise my hand and say "here."

I had a blog a long time ago but I realized it consisted of incoherent babblings that I'm sure no one else was interested in reading so I pretty much stopped. I'll leave the blogging to talented folks with interesting, bathroom adventures.

Posted by: Rengirl at October 3, 2007 12:48 PM

This isn't really delurking, 'cuz it's the first time I've visited.

I'll be back. I like it here. And Mia Bean is truely adorable and who can ever get enough of adorable kids?

Posted by: OddMix at October 3, 2007 12:48 PM

I'm definitely not a lurker. But I'll say hello anyway.

Posted by: Mr Lady at October 3, 2007 1:06 PM

I always do as I'm told--so I'm delurking to say "hi".

Posted by: Susan at October 3, 2007 1:27 PM

I haven't commented in a while, so I suppose that makes me a lurker now - Hi!

Posted by: Jen at October 3, 2007 1:37 PM

Damn, I made it onto the blogroll and everything. I feel special.

Posted by: Stephanie at October 3, 2007 1:44 PM

Seriously, your blogroll is huge! Heh - is that some sort of manly compliment or what? I'm not on it, but I haven't been commenting for long.

Posted by: Shelly at October 3, 2007 1:49 PM

Posted by: ie at October 3, 2007 2:37 PM

Hi. I don't have much to say but am following orders, which is a rare thing for me, so you should feel special. It was probably the compliment regarding my butt that did it.

Nice to "meet" you.

Also, thank you - I got new pants. ;)

I'd love to get on the blogroll as well thought I probably don't qualify as overall hotness. :)

Hey Chris...

That is one impressive blogroll and reminds me I need to update mine. You make the epitome of hotness by adding me SVP.

HI! I'm over *here*! Thanks for keeping me on the blogroll!

PS - Thanks for the positive comment on how great my ass looked today! (Cos, you know, I can't see it myself....) LOL

Holy crap. Nothing great to say except:

#1) technically not de-lurking because I've already done that a while ago,

#2) I'm not on your blogroll - your massive, mind-of-its-own blogroll, and

#3) I wanted to add to this clusterf*ck of comments - WOW! 124! I was excited that I had over a dozen comments today.

You are always ordering us around. I like that. :D

Hi, my name is Joe and I'm a lurker but not the creepy kind.

Posted by: JoeG at October 3, 2007 11:30 PM

Hey! I'm on the blogroll, but it's still my old blog, not my new blog. Work in progress... (http://stillbaking.ca/blog)

Hi! Semi-lurking these days. My old site may be on your blogroll, but my new site is private. I think I sent you the invite but let me know if it's lost in cyberspace somewhere. I seem to have dropped the ball on some of my blog friends. Happy Wednesday.

no site...just a lurker... who loves to read you with coffee... some...i just can't help but comment on.... keep it up!

I am not on your blogroll! *schniff* I've been a bad commenter lately though, work has been overbearing. I got home at 11pm last night. Bleargh.

Posted by: Teenuh at October 4, 2007 7:58 AM

Turning in my official application to be on your blogroll, Sir! *thwack*

Posted by: Betti at October 4, 2007 9:49 AM

Sweet Jesus, I made the blogroll!

Posted by: Emily at October 4, 2007 2:22 PM

Hey. I dropped off your blogroll during your clean up (not this one but the last one) because I was on hiatus at the time. I didn't bother to correct it when I started writing again because I didn't know how long I'd stick with it. Well, I'm still around, so you can add me if you want. My hubs even joins me on occasion (I forced him to help me in the blogathon and refused to take him out of the update loop). I also write at http://kinnicchick.com but you can add either/or. I'm hot no matter where I'm writing. ;)

Thanks for adding me to your blogroll... what an honor. :) And even more thanks for noticing my fabulous ass and my hotness. I felt like I looked pretty damned good today!

Posted by: Tara at October 4, 2007 10:36 PM

Delurking, if you insist...

Been reading for a couple of months; your posts never fail to entertain. Or at least mildly amuse. Your daughter is beauuutiful and hilarious, from the sound of it. I also check out Beth's site, you two are hilarious. I'll keep coming back :)

Posted by: Sara at October 4, 2007 11:00 PM

I'm not on it. I'd sniffle but I don't envy you. That's the longest list I've ever seen.

Posted by: Lisa at October 5, 2007 3:04 AM

hi! well, my old blog was on your blogroll a long time ago, so I won't complain. But i have two new blogs, and once they get past their initial boring phase, I will beg you to add them:

leavingbydawn.com
mamamuzings.blogspot.com (this name's gonna change soon though, dangit!)

Posted by: Dawn at October 5, 2007 3:19 PM

so.not.on.your.blogroll.

but 'hi' none the less. ;)

Posted by: Michele at October 5, 2007 3:57 PM

I got a first time visitor today who said she found me on your blogroll... so thanks!

Thought I'd drop by and say HI.
=)

Posted by: Bonita in Pink at October 7, 2007 1:11 AM

What if I'm a lurker AND I have a site? :D

(So are you gonna have to change the anti-spam thingy to 'bean&bro'? 'bean&rebean'?)

Posted by: KT at October 7, 2007 3:28 PM

Great site. I am a daddy blogger too. I blogrolled you today. When you have a moment stop by mine at http://tykaplan.blogspot.com and perhaps add me to your list. Cheers.

Hi Ya!

And congrats on the new baby!!!

I still read yours and Beth's sites ALL the time, although sometimes I get a couple days behind - as you can tell by this comment!!!

Been lurking for a while, and just got around to adding you to my feedreader. Not sure if I ever commented before, but what the heck.

Hi!

I received 1 st home loans when I was very young and it supported my relatives very much. But, I need the bank loan once more time.
