A Day Early and a Dollar for Monkey

Last week, I felt like I was a day late and a dollar short. So, I'm trying to start over this week. And actually doing a Tuesday meme on Monday. But, I have a point to doing it that way. Hang on.

Kerri, at Kerri's Klutter does these really cute comment love letters, where she copies and pastes some of the comments she received the previous week and turns them into a letter. I always thought this was a cute idea, but I'm lazy, this is my first time participating.

You know about Mission Monkey, right? Well, Kerri is going to donate $1 to Mission Monkey for every comment love letter that is linked up in the month of May. So, really, I'm posting this a day early for those of you who are missing out and haven't met Kerri yet- then you can participate tomorrow! Don't forget that you can make a donation to Monkey by clicking on her adorable pic over in the sidebar. Every little bit adds up.

I had a lot of fun rereading your comments and trying to make a letter out of them. The p.s. is actually from an email after a comment, but I think Mama Kiss will be okay with that. Isn't it amazing how you can "meet" someone in the blog world and feel like you've known them forever, even though it's only been a week?

Kerri’s Clutter

Dear Shell,

Where have you been my whole life!!?! Am loving your blog already! You are a smart lady. I frequently put my foot in my mouth and there is no place to hide. Love that you have the courage to speak your mind without worrying about being "correct" about it. You go girl! I don't know you IRL, but I think the internet-you is fabulous :) You're a girl after my own heart.

Love the new look! LOVE the new design! Yes. Yes by the way! If I didn't mention it yesterday- love the new wallpaper and curtains around here :) I adore your blog lay-out; it's possibly the best one I've seen, since I'm also such a beach girl. I love all of the flip-flops!

Wait...there is a boob fairy? NO FREAKIN' WAY! I have so been lied to....I have to go eat chocolate now....I'd rather be small and perky. Hauling them dogs around is not fun, and they are not pretty when you're hauling ass on the treadmill at the gym.

Well, at least Monkey knows daddy has some part in it - if he is putting the girl mix in your grilled cheese sandwich... hmmm... could be code...My daughter wanted a dog, but my husband told her that would be like having another brother. Now she doesn't want either one!

Your boys are cute and funny! I'm pretty sure I would've pet the alligator but I would've been freaking out! Lol Alligator actually tastes a lot like chicken, so I can understand why your little one tried to bite it ;)

I have PMS, period, After-MS, and one halfway decent week unless somebody pisses me off.... PMS almost looks like a video game system...especially when you wrote "PMS 3 weeks out of every month" - New to stores in June: The PMS 3! Husbands, hold on to your wives, this is going to be a wild ride.

Family...the other f-word. If there's one thing I've learned from blogging it's don't tell your family! Then you can't talk about them :) My brother was the one being mean to me the other day, but then I deleted him as a friend on fb. Much better.

Yeah, so glad to see your smiling face... kinda. you know, in a weird blogger online sorta way. "Next time, let's put a little less bitch mix in your grilled cheese."

I still crack up over motherbitch! You can run in our group if you want. I'll even let you hold my Edward doll. Because he's/you're important. I like the soft side of you as well as your sarcastic side. And yes, blog friends ARE real. Let's all take a vacation to bloggy land. By the way, you have no idea how important YOU have been in my blogging life. THANK YOU! :)

Love your blog. Love you. You are gorgeous! You rock at blogging. Okay, seriously I don't know how there can be people who don't know about YOU yet.

Your fabulous and loyal friends

P.S. So will you wear my 'half-bff' necklace? Which half do you want? I prefer the BE FRI half...

Ooooh! I'm all aflutter b/c my f-word comment made it in (I think it was mine...I've never heard anyone else use that reference.)! Yippee!! What a cute idea, but I don't know if I have it in me...oh, and I love how you want to give away the "ends" part of the necklace...I always end up with the butt-end of everything! Even virtual BFF necklaces! haha...

OHh I will have to do this tomorrow.. cause it will take me all day today to get a letter out of my comments lol..but I love this and the PMS one cracks me up.. I have always said I am the sweetest person you ever wanna know 7 days of the month, the rest of it tread softly..

This is a really great idea.

I actually have "starred" alot of great comments that people have left me.

And wow, that's a great "letter" of compliments!

You guys could do the heart instead, that way you wouldn't have to fight over who gets which letters on your necklace.

So I must quote: "Isn't it amazing how you can "meet" someone in the blog world and feel like you've known them forever, even though it's only been a week?"

It's really nutty. In a good way.

OH - my kid last night? Literally said to me "Ur nuttier den squirrel poop!" He's soooooo my kid.

I love this letter, may have to steal the idea ;)

What a great idea!! But I have to tell you, I see through your game, Shell! This is just a ploy to get us to write nice, witty comments about you -- so we'll end up in your love letters.

You may have the others fooled, but I'm onto you. ;0) ;0)

I'm going to start off-topic here just to rant. Why didn't anyone tell me about Mission Monkey???? Dammit all to hell. I have buttons for every other cause on earth, why the hell didn't anyone let me in???? Left out in bloggy hell once again. *sigh*

Okay, I'm over myself now. Where were we?

I'm off to visit Kerri. This Love Letter rocked! I only hope the folks who have commented on my crap were half as funny as yours. If they're not, I'll make shit up. I do that sometimes.
