The Official Delurking Day!

Two items of business to attend to this morning

First, I owe you the verdict on Tuesday's contest. Items 4, 13 and 15 were totally 100% fabricated. Sadly, the rest are true. While Christina, Jessie, Maribeth, Jen, and Stephanie got two out of the three answers correct, it was Regina (blogless) who got all three. Congratulations Regina!


Second, it's Delurking Day! Yep, that's right. The Official Delurking Day is back. Read the site? Comment. Comment all the time? Cool, do it again. A little shy? Come on, comment - you know you wanna. Take it to the streets - go comment all willy-nilly all over the blogosphere. You'll be glad you did. And so will all the bloggers already hard at work on tomorrow's posts.

I'm so excited to delurk! Here I am! (It's too early to have anything important to say)

Posted by: Bunny at January 10, 2008 7:11 AM

I don't lurk, but I'm saying hi anyway! My De-Lurk Button is up and I'm ready to roll!!!

Posted by: Maribeth at January 10, 2008 7:24 AM

I'm here, I'm queer, get used to it! (No, wait, that isn't right)

I'm here, I'm near, get used to it! (No... DC and Ontario are not near)

I'm here. (There. That's about right.)

Heyyyyyyyyy. It's Thursday - and I wasn't lurking, but I'll say howdy anyway. (Holy crap - it's THURSDAY?! Where did the week go?!).

I just lent a younger friend my copy of Say Anything when she said she hadn't seen it- I was shocked. Pretty sure she's heard of/seen the Matrix but now I'm going to double check that. Unbelievable.

Ahoy, Cactus!

Posted by: Dawn at January 10, 2008 7:57 AM

Thanks, Chris, for hosting this day! I guess that means I need to delurk too, eh?! My hubby refers to your blog a lot and I often read your wife's blog. Have a great day :)

Posted by: Multi-tasking Mommy at January 10, 2008 7:57 AM

I'm one of those creepy lukers...okay, maybe not CREEPY but a lurker. Love the blog. Fish's too. Especially all the bathroom incidents. Crazy

Posted by: Greta at January 10, 2008 7:59 AM

I De-Lurked awhile back...but Happy DeLurker Day...hope you get lotsa comments Cactus Man!

I read every day, even though I don't comment that often. Happy almost Friday!

Posted by: Leah at January 10, 2008 8:36 AM

I wonder if, since it's national de-lurking day - if anyone will comment on my blog. I get a significant amount of hits and very few comments.

Posted by: claire at January 10, 2008 8:38 AM

Surely it was delurking day only last week?! Doesn't time fly when you spend all your time reading blogs instead of.......bathing. Happy Delurking Day!

Posted by: Loth at January 10, 2008 8:38 AM

Sporadic commenter, but I'm still here... delurking, again!

Posted by: sam at January 10, 2008 8:38 AM

AND, I'm stealing the post and image... I've been blogging for almost 1.5 yrs and have never heard of Delurking Day. LOL!

Posted by: Holly at January 10, 2008 9:06 AM

Here to delurk! I read constantly, but don't always comment mostly because I've become pretty lazy in my current pregnant state.

Keep up the good writing!

(And so close on the headline quiz; darn!)

Hola Senor Cactus.
Officially delurking.

Long time reader, just not such a great commenter.

Hey there, Happy day to you!

Posted by: anna at January 10, 2008 9:43 AM

This is my first visit here. HI!

I LOVE this delurking idea! It bugs me to no end that I have people look at my blog EVERY DAY and have never commented. WHO ARE? Why don't they say hi???? Are they stalking me??? :)

Posted by: Alli at January 10, 2008 9:47 AM

I have posted the obligatory delurking post. ;)

Posted by: Leah at January 10, 2008 9:55 AM

I already delurked this week, so I guess I'm one step ahead of you! And, here I am again. Your blog is awesome, Beth's blog is awesome.
Thanks for keeping me entertained with my morning coffee!

Technically I'm not a lurker as this is my first visit to your blog (you can thank Man Overboard!), but I can tell you that I'll be back!

Great read!!

Posted by: Dana at January 10, 2008 9:59 AM

'Cause you said so. (And it's the nice thing to do). Thanks for making me laugh, and think occasionally.

Posted by: Meg at January 10, 2008 9:59 AM

Can I borrow your delurker picture for my blog?

Posted by: SassyPants at January 10, 2008 10:01 AM

Happy Destalking... Er, Delurking Day!!

Posted by: Tink at January 10, 2008 10:07 AM

Delurking! I read this and your wife's blog everyday. My daughter is just a little younger than Mia, my son just a little older than yours will be. You guys rock!

Delurking... cause I used to post more, but then I stopped posting and was just reading, now? 3 comments in 3 days... wow.

Happy Thursday!

Posted by: karen at January 10, 2008 10:33 AM

Yo. I'm stealing your Delurker graphic. Also... HAPPY DELURKING DAY!! P.S. I'm pronouncing it with the stress on the second syllable, so it sounds more like "deLURker." Peace out, homeskillet.

Posted by: GreenCanary at January 10, 2008 10:33 AM

Totally a lurker here. Hola!

Posted by: Sarah R at January 10, 2008 10:34 AM

You know I love to make useless, longwinded and boring comments here (whenever I have TIME!)! LOVE! ;)

Posted by: Haley-O at January 10, 2008 10:34 AM

Hi there-I think I have commented a few times, but def. not a consistent manner! Congrats on an upcoming wonderful year! :)

Still here. Happy de-lurking day.

Posted by: Hannita at January 10, 2008 11:17 AM

I have lots of things to say, they usually involve the F'word and a drink. Which means they happen way later than now. I may be back after I have a drink.

Posted by: chantel at January 10, 2008 11:18 AM

Shouldn't that character be facing in the opposite direction? He just wants attention :-)

Posted by: Maria at January 10, 2008 11:21 AM

I haven't commented in a long time - but I'm still out here.

Posted by: Lori at January 10, 2008 11:25 AM

Read you every day. Delurking per your request.

Posted by: Karrin at January 10, 2008 11:31 AM

Not really delurking as I comment on a fairly regular basis...thanks for the image and stop over and delurk at TherapyFailed.

Posted by: Krush at January 10, 2008 11:33 AM

Blogger and commenter...albeit very sparsely these days. Work stuff in progress is eating my lunch. So is the fact that the reason (a person) for moving my blog...has found me. I'm not even sure how. I'm participating in NDD as well, so come on by. I need the stat boost today.

Posted by: Anastasia Beaverhausen at January 10, 2008 11:33 AM

Happy Delurking Day! :-)

I think I'm only semi-lurky.

Posted by: Rachel at January 10, 2008 12:25 PM

Though I am not a lurker, I am not really a frequent poster like I used to be. Funny how you get slammed by life and things that you enjoy take an immediate back seat. Okay, not funny but damned frustrating.

Anyway, love your blog. I LOL on a regular basis because of you and because of Beth.

Keep up the good work!

Posted by: zanie at January 10, 2008 12:27 PM

I already have ONE! (Er, um...it was you, but whatever.)

Happy Delurk Day!

Posted by: Mr Lady at January 10, 2008 12:30 PM

Lately i have been coming outta my shell so to speak, so i guess it is mandatory on "DELURKER" Day!

I am happy that i won, though 13 i only guessed because the actual thought of it being true was just too awful! Oh and BTW and I'll have a blog 1 day, promise!

Posted by: Regina at January 10, 2008 12:30 PM

Obligatory delurking comment here.

Posted by: Rengirl at January 10, 2008 12:32 PM

Okay seriously, 96 comments? Are you even going to notice little ole me down here?

Now if I break 20...that'll be something.

I've bookmarked your page, I'll be back.

Posted by: fiwa at January 10, 2008 12:45 PM

This is the one-and-only time I will ever leave a comment - damn National DeLurking Day!

I comment on rare occasions, but I do faithfully read every day. Keep up the good work! :)

Posted by: Carmen at January 10, 2008 1:02 PM

I can't believe some of those are true.
I refuse.

Happy Delurking Day.

Posted by: Erin at January 10, 2008 7:17 PM

Hot diggity! It worked! By the way, I really do love your site. You and your lovely wife are some of the first reads on my daily list.

Posted by: Erin at January 10, 2008 7:27 PM

Delurking as requested! Love your and Beth's blogs and read them daily! Don't know what's up with Bloglines lately, but I've just been clicking through as I know you each post every weekday.

Sorry about Mia's goose egg. I know what you mean about time slowing down but not having enough time to stop something bad from happening.

I haven't officially 'voted' yet, but I'm guessing Beth will have Mia's brother on February 7th @ 6:53 am, and I'm not just saying that because it's my birthday either.

This is my first visit here - I am not a lurker - I came on a link from Greeblemonkey. But as commenter number 163, I can see that your evil plan is working.

Posted by: Linda at January 10, 2008 9:36 PM

Howdy from Ohio! I don't make a good lurker, as I usually run into stuff and make lots of noise. Oh, wait that's a *sneaker-upper" not a blog "lurker"... my bad. LOL

Holla!!

You're going to be busy if you respond to all these comments via email! :)

Posted by: Allison at January 10, 2008 9:57 PM

Found out about your blog through a friend (Holly). I will be checking in regularly... or 'lurking' as you say!

Posted by: Kelly at January 10, 2008 10:12 PM

I used to comment all the time then I started feeling "stalkerie" so now I just read. Delurking today to tell you I was here from the beginning w/ Mia and I am happy to be here for the birth of your son.

Proud to be de-lurking all over the blogworld today.

Alright, I'm out of my hole, and I want to say that... damn... I just saw my shadow. Looks like we're in for six more weeks of lurking.

Hey Chris! You got me started blogging way back when so I hope you don't mind me using your delurking logo as a little tribute to you :) . I don't come by as often as I used to but I still love to check in with cactus fish family!

Hey, Chris..
Happy Delurking Day!
I'm a sometime commenter but definitely a regular reader...LOVE your blog!
By the looks of the number of comments, Delurker Day was a success and as always you've managed to entertain the masses!!

Posted by: Judy at January 11, 2008 12:01 AM

The problem with leaving a comment is that you have such clever commenters and I'm usually reading you on the fly while chasing a 1 and 2 year old. Not a time when I'm feeling very clever, so I typically skip and hope the witty ones bring a smile to your face. But you know I love your site and think you're wonderful and I hope you realize that there are many of us non-commmenters who feel the same way every day.

It's still 11:40 my time so I getting in under the wire here. Happy Delurking Day!

hi...

mission accomplished...

Posted by: Tori at January 11, 2008 1:01 AM

hi. i don't lurk, but i wanted you to know I celebrated De-Lurking day as per your request. Your wish is my command. Or really your wish is something I chose to interpret as a command. Which I then obeyed.

Hi, my name is Tory. I think you're exciting! My favorite color is pink and blue. My favorite food is comfort food. When I grow up I want to be a Shepherd. I have a fetish for licking my computer screen.
Take care
Tory

Can you be a born-again delurker? Because I delurked a long time ago around here, but I'll happily re-delurk if one can restore my lurking virginity...

Posted by: suze at January 11, 2008 9:56 AM

Dude, I'm a day late but delurking anyway.

Posted by: Annie, The Evil Queen at January 11, 2008 10:51 AM

I've been a lurker for years but it took a Rude Cactus to flush me out of the bushes.

Posted by: Lynn at January 11, 2008 11:01 AM

Hello! I've been reading for a couple of weeks now. I enjoyed the news headlines post.

Posted by: bibliophile81 at January 11, 2008 11:55 AM

Oooh! Delurking!!! so...so...so...Bacchanalian! Unctuous, in fact! Caloo Callay! My name is Julia I am a certified Rude Cactus-aholic.

Posted by: Julia at January 11, 2008 12:06 PM

I'm late de-lurking, but then, I don't really LURK as I usually always comment... so I don't really qualify under these terms, right?

Happy De-Lurking Day, Chris!

Posted by: sue at January 11, 2008 12:07 PM

Delurking, even if it is a day late.

Posted by: Becky at January 11, 2008 1:23 PM

Belated Delurking Day Wishes!

Posted by: Janet at January 11, 2008 8:37 PM

I missed Delurker Day (and I didn't get your email until today) because I was at a work retreat with limited access to a computer. Looks like you've had your usual good response, though! :)

Posted by: Zandria at January 11, 2008 8:42 PM

I took a couple days break from the blogging world and missed one of the best days of the year! Shoot!

But I'm here! {waving arms furiously in the back of the room}

Posted by: debra at January 12, 2008 11:04 AM

Oh my god, I'm so late. Anyway, hi!

Posted by: Missy at January 14, 2008 6:47 AM

I used to be a regular commenter, but now I'm a total lurker. I blame it on the google reader and the too many blogs I love.

Posted by: Kellyology at January 12, 2009 10:32 AM

Enjoy your delurking day.

Posted by: Neil at January 12, 2009 2:06 PM

Delurking! Hi and happy Monday (if that's possible)!

Posted by: tamara at January 12, 2009 3:03 PM

I'm a harbitual lurker - but no more! Hello, I'm here too!

Posted by: iblogologist at January 12, 2009 8:53 PM

Hi Chris, long time no comment, I know. I come over every now and then and look at the pics and watch the vids. Have to tell you, "Police Navidad" was a true Classic.
Hugs.
