I know you are out there. Identify yourselves!

It has just come to my attention that today is National De-Lurking day.

I have a stat counter installed on this blog, and I see that many people are reading, however, only a few are commenting.

Perhaps you are shy?

Perhaps the "A" key is broken on your keyboard and you aren't able to write a comment using only the other 4 vowels?

Perhaps you came here looking for ideas for show and tell at preschool, decorations for a garbage truck birthday party, or funny potty training quotes.

Perhaps you are working in a law office in Lincoln Nebraska, and you only have a few snippets of time each day to read a blog without being detected by your boss and so you don't have time to comment?

So now I say to you, dear blog lurkers, DE-LURK! Leave me a comment! (pretty please. I'm having a monumentally bad week and I could sure use some nice comments)

If you don't want to use your real name, sign in as your favorite famous person. This way, it looks like I have a bunch of famous people reading my blog.

If you don't know what to say, leave me some sort of random comment such as......

"The moldy bird flies at midnight"

"Purple porcupines with rabies attack me in my sleep!"

"Target hates me!!"

"Uninsured drivers who back up into the side of your car should be covered in honey and forced to sit on top of an anthill!"

Yeah, pretty much any random comment will do, keeping in mind that my kids do read my blog, so anything you write should be appropriate for them to read.

If you really want to make my day, sign in as somebody famous and leave a random comment.

Thank you.

Happy commenting!

Uninsured drivers who back up into the side of your car should be covered in honey and forced to sit on top of an anthill! Naked!

Here is my diet tip for January: chocolate is a bad reward for keeping faithful to your diet.

The dolphin is in the washing machine. I repeat, the dolphin is in the washing machine.

I almost never comment on any of the (approximately) 14 bajillion blogs I read. But it's not because I'm not entertained! Just quiet.

Keep up the good work. Over and out.

Suburban Correspondent said...

I had no idea Sarah Palin read your blog.

Oh, and the phrase for today is "determined hedgehog." I stole it from Sue.

I had a yellow one once, but my dog ate it.

I wish that I lived at Willy Wonka's Factory and that the calories I ate there didn't count!

General Larry Platt said...

I just want to say:

Get yer pants off the ground, looking like a fool!

Karen said...

Dang....I wish I knew how to change my name so you'd think I was someone famous. I don't think there's a single famous Karen in all of history. Except maybe Karen Carpenter? But I don't want to be her!

michelle kwan said...

squarepants are the new circles!!!

Alvin and the Chipmunks said...

I saw your poll about "annoying" Christmas songs. I am not pleased that I was included. What is wrong with singing chipmunks??? Of all the problems in the world you have to pick on chipmunks? Pornography. Nope. Spandex. Nope. Chipmunks. Yep.

The coconut has no zipper.

Patti said...

I read you all the time, but through an RSS reader, so I usually don't comment on any of the 15 or so blogs I read. Thanks for writing.

Brandi said...

My brother works in Willy Wonka's factory and it shows!

Your ego should be soaring...Look at the blogs and by all the famous people already. Oh, yah!

De-lurking. Is eating a Wendy's frosty after working counter productive? It was only kids meal size.

I am a total lurker! Like, you're saved on my favorites. I love your blog, and your Max-isms. I've got my own four year old boy and can relate. I hope your week picks up. :)

The Hillbilly Banjo Queen: said...

Dear fellow blogger,
I love reading your blog. I laugh, I cry, I nod my head in agreement...I even comment once in a while. (I don't really cry, but it sounded good.) But I wanted you to know, I was here today and I laughed.

Bob Ross said...

Did the moldy bird fly through any happy little trees?

The Cat in the Hat said...

Yes I am real just if you were wondering

I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy.

I would love to meet Sarah Palin, think you could arrange it?

Busty LaRue said...

Half game, whole sno-cone :D

It is against the law in Georgia to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole. So what am I supposed to tie the giraffe to, I ask you?

I love smiling - smiling's my favorite!!

M-Cat said...

Wha? I missed National De-Lurking day?

I am such a loser. You.R.Not.

Paily said...

Pretty much you rock my knee-highs. That is all.

William Jennings Bryan said...

What can I say? I followed a link here once randomly to hear Max singing "lights" and got hooked on Max since then. The stories remind me of my nephew (that I don't get to see often enough) and make me laugh. So I added your blog to my reader and check in every now and then when I need a break.

That's a little disturbing that you can identify my location and profession. :-)

Jessica G. said...

I'm not exactly a lurker since you're forced to speak to me in person on occasion. But I am pretty sure Target hates me.

Maraiya said...

BOB ROSS!! Bob Ross commented?!?! He came back from the dead?! And he didn't say "Happy trees?" Wow. I'm stunned. What an amazing woman you must be to have such fans.

And btw, someone totally stole my idea. I was gonna be a famous person, a contender, and leave lots of happy tree comments for you, but someone totally beat me to the punch. Totally.

And btw, (because I'm such an original writer) you forgot to list all the people who tune in because of the naughty bird stories. What's with that? Are you anti-naughty bird? I can't imagine why....

Barack Obama said...

I wanted to say that you have a fine blog, a bold blog, that tells the world what fine people Americans are. You are an outstanding example of the kind of person we should all seek to be. This is why I'm giving you my Nobel Peace Prize. You are that important.

Heidi Klum said...

Jillybean.....you are in.

Orlando Bloom said...

When are you going to leave your husband and marry me?

Kethrim said...

My kittens would like you to know that yes, the birds outside do look very tasty, and they just want to "play" with them, please?

Jillybean said...

Thanks for all the comments, you guys are hilarious!!

Keep going, these are great!

I'm just wondering why Tiger Woods hasn't stopped by yet.........

Max and Ruby said...

Delurking per your orders. Read a lot, comment rarely. I hate having to type the word verification word - it doesn't like me JUST LIKE TARGET!

Weird Al Yankovic said...

I like chasing cars!!!!!

Tiger Woods said...

SHHHHHHHH, I was never here.

Dev said...

Another lurker coming out from behind the scenes...you make me laugh a lot which is much needed in these days Thanks

Alison Wonderland said...

Tiger came by my blog. He commented and asked me to tell you that if you want him to contact you you'll have to text him just like all the other girls. Whatever that means.

Love you!

Belovedgoddess said...

I read this yesterday and in true procrastinator style I decided to put off delurking.


I do have ambition but can't remember where I put it.

What did dogs do when they got hot in the 1800's in England..... Hot in England? What was I thinking?

The Preschool Teacher said...

I comment very occasionally. Hard to do from my phone a lot. Hi!
