That is FIVE THOUSAND eight hundred and NINETY TWoooooooooooo.
That is beyond amazing, crazy, disturbing, weird, and frankly, terrifying!!
I got over 300 friend requests on my PERSONAL Facebook page. What? I got many delightful and fun messages, yay! I also got quite a few very er...unsavory messages. On my PERSONAL page. Really? Just. I can't. No.
This isn't the level attention I was ever seeking - nor the level of attention I feel comfortable with for myself or my children. I haven't blogged in a flingity flanging year, people! (an exact year, heh). Did I mention I hated BlogHer because it overwhelmed me? I did.
This. Too much. I can't. No.
I am up in the middle of the night in a panic flop sweat because yo, I wasn't really planning on DOING any naughty Elfies this year because I have two small children and I am tired and old, and doing the wrapping and the Christmas and the festive and the advent and the parties, and the WRAPPING (oh lawdy, the wrapping) and maybe some sleeping in there too? That seemed like plenty. And now I feel PRESSURE to do Elfies so that 5,892 people will be happy. Only I don't want anyone to be happy except my kidlets on Christmas and barely paid any attention to my kidlets all day today because I was so busy sweating and watching Facebook.
And the reality is - those Elfie pictures were just for fun - to make my friends laugh. But if I am all hivey and self conscious and hivey trying to make 5,903 (it just keeps going up holy crap) people laugh - they likely aren't going to be funny. I mean - my mind = blank. All I could think of to do next in my panic brain was 2 Elves 1 cup. And then my mother in law might Google 2 Elves 1 cup and then all KINDS of weird shit will go down.
So, I'm shuttin' her down! Pullin' the plug! Stopping the madness! Well, not totally - because oops, it is already out there, and oh Heyyyyy now, here is my blog I kind of didn't want to do anymore - how ya doing, BOING!
So. Here are the 17 Elfie pics. I am unbelievably flattered and tickled that so many people loved them! They are kind of awesome. Heh.
Maybe if the mood hits, I might do some more! Maybe. I might even blog. Who knows.
I will post anything else here. 'Cause that Facebook page is getting the ax-ola asap. Because - hives.
you lying ol' dirty birdy
I had a dream I danced the Black Swan
I wish I knew how to quit you.
It puts the lotion in the basket.
fa la la la roofie
That was bananas! All that over 17 pictures! Pshew.
