Bloggy Bragging!

I know some people who know famous people. OK, maybe I don't actually KNOW them, but I have left a post on their blog or they've left a post on mine. So in a sense I know people who know people who know famous bloggy people.

DaNae had a famous person send her a CD of music to listen to, just to see what she thought of it. Wow! She knows someone who has made a CD! Her name is Sherri and it's beautiful music. And DaNae is sorta famous too! DaNae has commented on my blog before....is that bloggy bragging? In fact, DaNae is about the funniest person I've ever blogread before.

Then there is a bunch of people who know Annette Lyon who has written a series of pretty good books. Jan was sent one of Annette's books by Annette herself to read and review it. Wow! Jan was so into the book that she dressed up in character, and if there is one thing I have figured out about Jan is that she IS a character. Fun blog!

Then there is another blogger that I've really enjoyed reading and she's commented on my blog before. The thing that is so totally awesome about Farmergal's Market is that she just got back from Pioneer Woman's ranch! YES, that's true! Anyone who is a blogger knows who PW is. Well, Farmergal's niece won a contest and they got to spend a weekend at the Lodge cooking with Pioneer Woman! Can you believe? Farmergal is an incredible photographer and funny writer. Very warm. I don't know if PW has ever commented on Farmergal's blog, but who needs a comment when you actually get to be there?

Shauna is so dang famous that famous people send her all kinds of stuff and she gives them away on contests and giveaways! Shauna had her picture taken with Sher (see above) and is giving away one of her CD's too! I actually won a book from Shauna's blog "100 Poems to Lift Your Spirits" It's a beautiful book and I've loved reading it. Shauna is probably one of the most generous famous people out there. Her blog is darling! Thank you Shauna!

And then there is Wendy, she's so dang famous that she gets "enjoyable" phone calls! Wow Wendy, wish I were as famous as you! NOT!

So, as pathetic as my bloggybragging is, I just needed to comment about the famous people I know who are famous or who know famous people or who have met their cousins sister's hairdresser that walked their dogs.

wendy said...

Oh, and just by being first -TOTALLY MAKES ME FAMOUS

Jan the crazy lady said...

I see you as famouser. Is that a word?

This was so funny. I think by just having a blog, we all automatically become famous. Hee hee...

Your validation word is

rings

Kristina P. said...

So, what does it make me if I've met Sherrie, Wendy, Shauna, and Annette?

Oh, and I'm giving away Sher's CD on Friday.

Mary Z said...

Hey what about the famous person who took that picture of the Rexburg Temple that you have on your blog?

The Garden of Egan said...

Ya Mary you are right! And to think that President Bednar wanted the picture to show on General Conference. AND you have a recipe in the World Wide Web Cookbook! Can I have yer autograph?

Shauna said...

How SWEET! This made my day! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! (((HUGS)))

Sher said...

Me? Famous!? Ba-hahhaa!
Well, there's always hope, right?

The Garden of Egan said...

Oh, my heck! Famous people commenting on my blog! I can't hardly take it.

Kimberly said...

Love your writings! And now I know what subjects are taboo in church... Ha!
Have a great day, Kimberly

How did I miss this famous post? I had to read it very slowly so that I could keep track of who's who. I think you are some kind of cool ER nurse who has seen some very dirty, nasty, icky feet and Stinky toes! Anyone who can do that just rocks in my book!

I'm just going to have to come west some time later this year so that I can meet all you famous people. That would just be fun. I do have two sisters in SLC. I could use that excuse :)

DeNae said...

And here I was thinking I was famous for knowing YOU! I guess we're all just one big happy famous delusional family!!

Connie said...

What did we do before we joined the world of blogging? We "meet" so many people, famous and not so famous! But in my book, the blogs I follow are "owned" by some pretty incredible people.

Have a fun weekend! Hope you don't have to work. With school getting out and the weather being good, I bet you have lots of business in the ER.

I'm pretty sure a bunch of the ladies we blog with will be famous someday!! or maybe just arrested hehehe

Cherie said...

Everyone is famous in my book!! :D

Ann Marie said...

I agree with Cherie. I love my blog buddies.. They are all celebs to me!!

I admit.. I don't follow the pioneer woman at all.. I tried reading a post once and it was really weird just jumping in like that..

All of my blog friends I have met through someone.. I don't have time to blog surf..I can barely get to the peeps I follow everyday..

Fun post! :)

Small House said...

I met Donny Osmond once, and had autographs signed by cast members on the Lawrence Welk Show when I was 10. HAHAHAHAHA

I'm the least famous of them all.
Still having fun though.

Have a great day.

Cadance said...

There are some AWESOME people in blogland HUH!?!?!?! Maybe I'll get my 15 seconds of fame someday without having to give birth to 8 children at one time!..we can all dream!

funky bag freak said...

Hey Wendy and Kristina are my buds! Woo Hoo! I've even met Sher and Shauna! I am so excited and then there's you! OMG oh stinkin exciting is that!

Pinch me quick! Am I dreaming?

wendy said...

Hey my friend, I will miss you while I am outrunning bears up north--but I'll be sure to check on you when I get back.

Nana said...

Wow, I don't know anyone famous. My aunt used to fight w/ Robert Redford about her cabin in Sundance. He wanted it, she wouldn't let him have it.

My friend know Marie Osmond. I could tell a few stories there, but I won't. That's about it.

Well, thanks for mentioning me! I still feel like our visit to PW's ranch was a dream, like it never really happened.

I enjoy reading your blog too. Now I'm off to see if you've put up any bodily fluid posts lately...
