BlogHOP 08 PartyHi there! My name is Karen and I’m your hostess for tonight’s BlogHop ’08 here at Simply Amusing Blog. Phew! You caught me with my hair still in curlers and my face unmade!

I’ve been working on blog designs all day and haven’t even had a chance to make anything super-fab for us to eat – and I’m famished, how about you? Let’s see…I’ve got some queso and chips…that’s about as good as it gets in my house on the spur of the moment…I’ll throw em in a bowl for us to share. Want some Diet Dr. Pepper? It’s either that or sweet tea, I’m afraid.

There’s a lot of partying going on tonight – so why not just subscribe to my feed and then you can have me delivered right to your inbox in the morning? Go now! Visit our fellow bloggers!

    Uugh! I told you I was computer illiterate. I have never joined a chat room and could not get on….I was trying . It might have had something to do that I was on a friend’s laptop.
    I also need to know more about one subscribing to my feed. …I briefly heard you talking about that.

    My husband is growing weary from my weekend blog time. Guess I didn’t invite him to the party ;).

    Thanks again for making this so much fun! You just gotta love being a party of “this”!

    Nice to meet you. I’ll take the queso and chips. But no DP. I’ll have lemonade or green tea if you have it. If not, plain cold water will do.:)
