I'm interrupting my scintillating vacation pictures for a special "June Looks In Your Drawers Post".
If you've been with me awhile, you know I adore the blog, Bye Bye Pie. I found June Gardens and her blog a while back when she was nominated for Funniest Blog at the Luxe Awards, which is like the Oscars for blogs. And let me tell you, that girl is fun-fun-funny.
It is the first place I go to in the morning, besides the yard for Moronica and Mornoni's morning constitution. After the morning business, I rush over to BBP to see what all my friends are up to.
See, June's blog is a very special place. It's like an interactive blog. It is an ongoing dialogue all day long between June and the commenters. And I'm not sure dialogue would be the correct term here, it's more like what goes on at a 12-year-old's slumber party, after the mom has gone to bed. We're a tight bunch over there. We even watched the Academy Awards together on Juney's blog.
Every Wednesday, June has "Pieces of Wisdom" where she asks us a question on Tuesday and on Wednesday we all give her our answers. For example, there was the time she wanted to know what we ate in a day or the time she wanted to know how we managed to save money. I think my answer was buy shoes. It might not save money, but it sure can make a girl happy!
This Tuesday, she shook things up a bit. She told us how her husband Marvin is a Snooper McSnoopypants, when he goes to the bathroom at other people's houses, checking medicine cabinets and the like and so she wanted us to send her pictures of our medicine cabinets, so Marvin could get his snoop on.
And since I am always the first one to ring the doorbell and run or whatever fun there is to be found, I sent her my pictures.
Now, here's another reason I love June. She is a hypochondriac just like me and this was my chance to show her how hypochondriaclly (not a word, but I like it), united we are.
I don't have a medicine cabinet. I have a medicine closet. That's right.
And because my closet is so big, I sent her 2 pictures of 2 different shelves.
The first picture is on her blog today, here. It's the last picture of the bunch. Well, duh, I mean, she says, "Here's Joann's picture." Anyway, I put a special something in the picture for Marvin to reward him for his snooping and also for Hulk who is part of my commenting family over there because I have a feeling the gigantic Hulk likes pink.
All the boxes of perfume samples in the picture are from my sister who works for a perfume company and gives us all kinds of free smells. We have so many perfumes, the dogs even have their own scents. We are living life large, folks, over here. Our dogs have their own signature perfumes.
Anyway, I sent in two pictures, but June couldn't get my other one up, something about my iPhone and upside down, I don't know. All I know is she wanted me to put it on my blog today. And I do what June says because she's the head girl at the slumber party.
So, here's my second pic:
And here's where I show June what a super hypochondriac I am.
Not one, but two, two blood pressure monitors. Because, you never know when in the midst of a blood pressure reading, your monitor will cut out on you and you need that backup to ensure you're not stroking out.
And please ignore the EMPTY SOAP DISPENSER that one of my lazy Dung Beetles put back on the shelf instead of, I don't know, walking the three steps to the trash can.
I keep it real here, folks.
And that thing hanging off the shelf, is a pretty pink gel mask. Something to reduce my puffiness when I'm checking my stroke levels with my blood pressure cuffs. On both arms.
Check out June's blog and all the fun pictures she's got up today. And if you feel like joining us, we welcome you with open arms. One of my commenters who is also named JoAnn, (different spelling) joined us over there. And so now, I am called Original Joann and she is Regular Joann.
And by the way, JoAnn has a blog called Ostriches Look Funny which has absolutely nothing to do with ostriches. So if you're an ostrich lover, don't get all excited. There are no ostriches there, just JoAnn's writing which is way better than an ostrich. JoAnn is a writer so full of grace, her words oftentimes take my breath away. She is incredibly gifted and she just blogs, but I've been trying to coax her into writing something big, because she is that good.
Unfortunately, she is on hiatus because of a move that has left her without Internet. I miss her and her magnificent words, but she will be back. Check for her on my side bar. She is amazing.
If you come over to Bye Bye Pie, there are only a few rules. You must love animals and hate Rush, (the band).
So, head on over to June's blog now and check out my photo and in my typical fashion, I'm probably over sharing a bit much . . . as usual.
No download today. I've got blog comments I'm backed up on and a critique partner's manuscript calling my name.
Now, shoo, get on over to June's and don't forget your jammies and Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bag.
