Catching Up

So I have to catch up on all the fun stuff I missed out on the last two weeks. Shut up, I'm too lazy to write a real post. However, before I go on - I want to thank everyone for their kind words and messages while I was gone. And I would especially like to thank the many people that sent me such lovely emails and Instant Messages - I won't name you all because:

1. I'm lazy.
B. I don't want to embarass you all.

Just know that I truly appreciate all of you who showed me the love.

On to the nonsense.

Judge me, please.....

Please visit my Johari Window. Even while I was gone I did all of yours. Your turn!

Been there, done that......

You Should Date An Australian!

You're a down to earth, outdoorsy kind of girl
And you need a guy who can keep up with your adventures
A rugged Austrailian guy is just your style
Better start learning how to surf!

Which Foreign Guy Should You Date?
Say it ain't so!

You'll Find Love Online

Dating in meatspace is way too complicated and time consuming for you
You rather find a ton of guys at the click of a button
So go on, and have some fun in your online dating adventure
Just make sure is who he says he is

I feel much better now.

I'm glad you feel better... and I'm freaked that I picked the EXACT same things for your Johari as you did.

Brookelina said...

Except I screwed it up. However, you still nailed me.

Lo Lo Lova said...

I will try to read through all of this tomorrow and click on all of your links. But right now I just wanted to say I'm glad you're back and I hope your mom is doing well. I missed you, Brookie!

miss kendra said...

you have found love online. you can't deny it.

don't play me like that, boo.

Bill said...

Did I do your Johari yet? I'll have to check. I've done a couple and lost track of which ones.

This feels very strange ... posting a comment on a new Brooke post! I wish I had something actually interesting worth saying.

Nice to have you back. Even better that you seem to still have your Brooke edge. (Don't ask me what the means - I'm not sure I know.)

jiggs said...

the word "johari" reminds me of that song "volare"

Übermilf said...

My mom thinks the song "Volare" is bad luck -- she won't even say the word. She just calls it the "Big V song".

It used to be a Plymouth model, and they'd sing the song on the commercial. My mom would scream, jump up from the couch and turn off the TV.

I wish I was making this up.

Melliferous Pants said...

Glad to see you back! I heart you Brooke!

*I should date an Italian- already did!

*I won't find love online- already know that!

Anonymous said...

I resent that I wasn't mentioned personally in your post. After all we've been though, you and I.

After showing you gtalk.

I'm so upset.

Brookelina said...

Lo Lo - missed you too! And I can't believe I forgot Jon's birthday. I'm so ashamed.

Miss K - you are the love of my online experience. Nothing compares to you.

Bill - I didn't know I had an edge. That's way cool.

Jiggs - now Volare is stuck in my head. Bastard.

Ubie - and I thought my family was fucked up.

Pants - I love you too! As for Italian men - been there done that too. Internet men - bad bad idea.

Danny - but you are still going to fuck me, right?

Neil said...

Hi. Happy to see you.

Anonymous said...

of course. sheesh.

Cincysundevil said...

HEY!!! I'm so glad you're back. We missed you terribly. I had no one to flirt with!!

babyjewels said...

You're back! I'm happy! Egan's horn is limp!

Brookelina said...

Neil - thank you.

Danny - if this picture you have is what you now look like, then we can just have a drink instead.

Cincy - commence with the flirting!

BabyJ - I'm happy too! Regarding Egan, I could have told you that.

ChickyBabe said...

You should date an Australian! No sh!t... ;)

Welcome back Brooke!

Knitty Kitty said...

I missed ya T.T

Jill said...

missed you, you awesome thing. i just noticed "someday you will ache like i ache...." oooooohhhhhh how i love that song.

Flounder said...

If your blog was a hill, we could call it Brooke's Back Mountain.

I know, that was pretty lame, but I have been shoveling snow again and that always takes a lot out of me.

yournamehere said...

Ubie's story about "Volare" made me fucking snort.

BROOOOOOOOOOOKE, remember when you promised to visit Vegas? I don't know how much longer I can hold out here, and I know you don't want to visit Louisville, so hurry it up.

Super Mongo said...

I agree!

good to have you back.

Egan said...

Flaccid just means not excited at that moment. Give it some time. "I have seen the top of the mountain and it is good". Mt. Everest.

Everest said...

Excuse me, I am never merely flaccid. I am Everest and I am good.

Damn Good.

Loz said...

I'm afraid I must protest at your lack of completing my johari and declare a volare on YOUR johari!

oh whatever i'll just do yours.

FindingHeart said...

Brooke, hope mom recovers quickly. I missed the only blog I read that always has 50+ comments everytime. Ha! Welcome back.

Brookelina said...

CB - there is nothing like an Aussie man.

Knitty - missed you too TT.

Jill - I want to be the girl with the most cake.

Flounder - snow? What is this thing you call snow?

Todd - I will be in Vegas before the end of 2006, this I proclaim.

Mongo - I agree too! What were we talking about?

Egan - flaccid is unacceptable. I require my men to be hard at all times.

Everest - you sound like the guy for me - call me!

Loz - did I miss yours? Dammit.

FH - I have a feeling I won't be getting so many comments anymore, now that my blog is so fucking boring.

Übermilf said...

I forgot; I'm supposed to date an Italian man.

I think I'm too late. I'll settle for my feisty Irishman.

Tumbleweed said...

Yayyyyyy! Gald to have you back! I need an Australian too, so we are back to the brother thing. Let's take a trip there together soon. I didn't do the love one, I was scared what the answer might be!

sandra said...

Brooke, I'm apparently supposed to date an Australian too! Although for the record, I've leaned toward Commonwealth countries for several years now. A good friend of mine swears she's going to make me Commonwealth Club t-shirts.

Welcome back!

Thérèse said...



Thérèse said...


You're back!

Thérèse said...

*commence stalk*

Thérèse said...

Missed you, you know. Your comments everywhere in the 'sphere always crack me up.

Thérèse said...

Plus it's difficult to keep to a resolve to stalk someone when they're kind of vacationing.

Thérèse said...

Unless you go on vacation with them.

Thérèse said...

Which occurred to me.

Thérèse said...

You know, it really is great news that you'll find love online. I've been sitting here, thinking about that for a good five minutes now.

(eyebrow wiggle)

Thérèse said...

I mean 29 minutes.

Because I haven't left your blog for one second.

(This is where the creepy stalker thing comes in handy, you know, like the creepy eyes and stuff? yeahhhh.)

Thérèse said...

30. 30 minutes now.

Thérèse said...

(comes back, this time with an acoustic guitar)

(tunes guitar)

(clears throat)

Egan said...

Ouch TayRez.

Thérèse said...


Um... err... Hi, Egan... (scratches neck) How... how are you?

Sizzle said...

glad to have you back brooke. :)

Brookelina said...

Ubie - you act like you can't date just because you're married. What's up with that?

Weedie - I'm so there on the trip with you, like you really need to twist my arm to nail an Aussie man.

Sandra - then clearly you need to come on the trip with me and Weedie.

Therese - you are doing a fabulous job. It's been just awful not having a stalker lately. Egan is busy on his own blog and Calzone dumped me for every other woman in the blogosphere. Thank God you came along!

Sizz - thanks doll. Next I have to get back to our group blog. I've been so negligent.

Bill said...

Group blog? That sounds kind of risqué. Do you have pictures? Video?

Tumbleweed said...

A group vacation to Aussie land would totally trump a group blog. We have three so far. The more the merrier!! No men can come though...unless they are gay.

Alistair! said...

But how's mom?

jiggs said...

volare. whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Budding Rose said...

I want to date a Greek dude.

Spinning Girl said...

I missed you bad! I think of you often!!!
We should TOTALLY all have a group blog, where we show our innermost sick & twisted selves.
OK, I guess I am the only sick & twisted one.
love ya!

Brookelina said...

Bill - pervert

Weedie - I will start saving up now. Hopefully my ex from Melbourne will be divorced by then.

Al - surgery is next Wednesday, if I don't kill the doctor first. Thanks for asking. How are you doing?

Jiggs - I love it when you serenade me.

Bud - aren't Greek dudes

SG - I think that is a great idea! But I think I need to be invited - again.

miss kendra said...

you should go to vegas in may with jiggs and booty and tasty and slappy and me.


Egan said...

Every blog deserves a stalker right? TayRez/Therese is really good at that role. She's not available on weekends though.

Brookelina said...

Miss K - if that is an invitation, consider me there.

Egan - you can take over on weekends.

OK, someone named BooBoo did my Johari. Who is BooBoo?

jake said...

that stupid thing said that i should get with an australian guy too.


Zombie Lou said...

Lou Reed woke up again today.

Anonymous said...

Hi Brooke. Glad you're back!

Egan said...

No thanks, I'm not up for Blog Squatting. It's no longer the cool thing to do.

Thérèse said...


Think Frustrated said...

Welcome back.

Bill said...

Just so you know ... a half-naked woman eating Vegemite toast is still predominant on your blog.

Not that that's a bad thing. I just thought I'd point it out.
