Lonely Little Blog

Isn't this a lonely little blog? I feel all guilty and stuff that it's sitting here by it's lonesome little self while I figure out what I'm doing, so I thought I'd come rescue it a little. Plus it's like Friday for me today since I'm off tomorrow, and I'm trying hard to look like I'm working hard. I'm quite talented at that, actually.

So. Some references that might pop up here that may not make sense to some new folks would be references to the "Crazies" and "Mad Spaghetti Noodle".

Crazies generally refers to me, my dogs, or any combination thereof. "Carson Crazies" is the name of my old blog, and also my login name on several dog boards. When I was initially starting out with the border collies I was looking for a user name that would reflect something about myself and my dogs, and the "Crazies" part was born. The minvan is the "CrazyMobile" (bless it's little heart), the house is the "CrazyHouse" and so on.

Mad Spaghetti Noodle? Watch this:




This is me working Linc at 6 months old. Julie and I had been at Lowes that day getting these PVC pipes, and they turned out to be too long and unweildly (and quite hysterical actually). If you listen you can hear Julie laughing about it being the "Mad Spaghetti Noodle" somewhere around the middle of the video. After watching the video and giggling (repeatedly), Becca said, "I know! You're the Mad Spaghetti Noodle Lady!" so thus the reference somehow managed to stick.

So bear with me while I figure out the whole title thing for this blog, but I think I'm actually on the edge getting ready to dive in.

Hey gals! Thank you very much. I think I'm going to really enjoy blogger. I was just telling Robin that it's amazing what I can learn when I remember to search the help section. :)

Thanks Robin. The more I fiddle with it, the more I really like it - particularly as I'm learning how to put video and pictures in - and it's SO much easier!
