(The makings of, and) A tribute to The Queen

My blogland friend , Queen of the Mayhem so kindly asked ME to be a "guest writer"over on her blog today.


At first, I was all excited and thought, "OHHHH......HOW FUN!!!!" But then, within seconds ... seriously.... the insecure part of me said ..."OH NO, I can't be as funny as the Queen ~ what the heck am I going to write about?!" "What if her readers think I'm a big dork?" I don't want to be like Dorky Dad you know! (Jussssst kidding ... he's very fun. ;-)

Then, she told me Lawyer Mama and Paige were going to be "guest writers" this week, too.
DOH!!!
When she told me that, I really thought ... "NO WAY! I can't go be a "guest writer" in between these two talented writers!!" They are awesome bloggers!
After spending a few days of stressing over this ... I thought ... what the heck ...
I'll go ahead and do a tribute to the Queen. Yeah ... a tribute. She'll love that!!

I was going to discuss why I love the Queen and how I e~met her. I was also going to ask everyone else to comment on why they love her and how they e~met her!! It would be a fun for her. But, darn it, I can't figure out how to get on her blog .... I double checked her e~mail for instructions ~ I must have missed something. Can't get on her blog to post.

So, I'll do a tribute to her here!

I met the Queen on Matthew's blog about 6 months ago. She's the second non family member that came over and commented on Matthew's blog.
She was always so sweet, kind and caring. I had to run over to her blog and e~meet her. (I was not really into blogging yet.) I fell in love with her immediately. Her blog is great and I always leave cracking up. Not only is she a little hotty girl, she is fun ... witty ... smart ... kind ... has two of the most adorable children ... has a great husband ... and lives a very happy & hectic life. She has always been supportive and helpful to me. I feel like I've known her forever!
We both love Kenny Chesney and she swears that one day, she's going to come to Las Vegas and we'll go see him in concert. I think she'll be here in November, BTW!!
We've talked on the phone a couple times and it's like we're old friends.

I believe most of you already know her ... if you don't, go e~meet her!
If you do, please go to her blog and tell her why you appreciate knowing her!!!
Hum,
I suppose you can just comment here ... go ahead and go on and on about her now, since she'll come and read all the good stuff on this post! You know us girls!

WHAT? Did you just call me a dork? Oh, wait.

Actually, I think a tribute to Queenie on your blog probably means more to her than one on hers. Just a thought.

Queen is some good people, though.

TA for that, didn't need the link... found it myself! I am getting good at this blogging. Queen look kinda nice, will check out her blog again once she's back from the beach, the lucky tart.

I love her to pieces. Great write up on such a wonderful person, sugar.

I can see why you two are pals. You are both such great people.

xo!

TerriGirl,
The fact that you even thought of doing a tribute to the Queen on your blog proves your sincerity in friendship. I'm so lucky to have e-met you!! Love you to pieces!!

Queen,
You've injected an element of laughter in my 'senior life' that was not there before I first clicked on your blog...the one where you were wondering if there were "orange uniforms in size 3T". You had me hooked with that one!
Blessings on you, your family, and....your blogging!!

Multi-tasking Mommy said...

I haven't met the Queen yet! I'll have to go check her out.

Queen is wonderful. She's witty and fun and smart and aw hell, I'll say it... gorgeous.

This was a great idea. Terri you are such a great friend. And you totally rocked the tribute!

When I need blogsitters, you will be one of the chosen ones!!!!

You know, you and Crabby were the first non family commenters on Matthew's blog way back when....

furiousBall said...

This was a nice gesture, now I need to go read her blog :)

And yeah, you weren't nearly as dorky as dorky dad...i mean come on. ;-)

Lawyer Mama said...

Found it! What a fabulous idea! I'm sure the Queen will be touched. I know I would be. (I'm blushing also because you were far too nice to me.)

I met the Queen online. I can't remember if I found her or she found me. If I remember correctly, we both read Gunfighter at The View From Here and that may be the connection.

I really understood what a fabulous person Q was when she took the time to email me regarding a particularly painful and personal post I had put up. She shared her similar experiences & rooted me on. I'm sure she has no idea how much that touched me, but now she does.

She is a hoot, and the house of Mayhem an interesting place.

Slackermommy said...

I love the Queen also! She will love this.

I hope you got my e-mail on how to use simple html commands to leave comments in the comment section

David said...

Good job Terri!

I found Queen's blog when I first started blogging. I followed Gina's link to Jenny's Flaw and Disorder and from there I found the Queen. Ah, Blogroll surfing can be fun!

ForUsThreeGirls said...

Just found your blog from "A day in the life of MaMa". I had to come visit because Steel Magnolia's is one of my favorite movies / plays of all times!

Just playing around with HTML!!

Terri, you are such a wonderful girl!

Terri@SteelMagnolia said...

you're so smart!!
and clever

GoteeMan said...

How cool! Yeap, I saw the queen on some other blogs and stopped by to check in... now, one of my favorite hangouts, e-speaking...

Between Queen, BottleBlonde, and Oh, The Joys! It really brightens up my days... which ain't easy considering our current circumstances...

SO ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!

J.

Tony said...

terri and the queen are both ggggrrrrrreat!

BottleBlonde said...

Terri, you are a sweetheart and I don't even know you. Your kindness jumps off the page.

By the way, NEVER doubt your writing abilities. This blogger thinks that you've got it goin' on!

I'll check out the Queen's page after I leave here. Your tribute to her was so convincing that you left me no choice!

weatherchazer said...

Awesome tribute- very well done!

Queen of the Mayhem said...

Terri,
What a sweet and touching tribute! You HAVE to know that someone who has the audacity to refer to themselves as royalty LOVES this kind of attention! (hee-hee)

Seriously, finding you and all my other wonderful "e-friends" has made me happier than I can express!

BUT...YOU.....YOU are one of my ALL TIME FAVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Thanks again!
