Word on the Street


The word on the street twitter is that today is National Delurking Day (or if its not, just pretend ok). I was a lurker for a long time. It was on a delurking day that I finally worked up the nerve to comment on one of my favorite bloggers page. I still lurk on some blogs. I don't know why exactly, I know that most blog owners probably know I am there based on their stat counters. I just prefer to read from the wings I suppose. I actually delurked the other day on a few blogs that I have read for years. Yes, years. So in the spirit of National Delurking Day, leave a comment and tell me something fun about yourself, your favorite quote, or something completely off the wall random!

In other news, I'm doing another give away later in the week!

Something about myself: I am afraid of deer. This is not fun because they are always in my back yard.

Since I could never come up with just one favorite quote, here are four:

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"We’re all freaks depending on the backdrop." Passing Strange

"The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience." Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

“Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.” Helen Keller

i love the term lurking--a friend of mine calls it blog-bombing. :)

Random: I am 116 days away from graduating from law school. I constantly complain about school, but I am secretly proud of myself for surviving the past 3 (most miserable) years. :)

I used to have a boss that we called The Lurker because he would stand behind my desk for an inappropriate length of time and an inappropriate distance. I finally made a perimeter around my cubicle with red tape. It made no difference.

I suck. I missed it. But, technically I'm not a lurker, so maybe my comment wouldn't count anyway? Well, that's what I'm telling myself to make myself feel better... =)

Frank said...

You know me :) Let's see, something interesting about me. I scare very easily. Like you could stand next to me and I'd jump.

Maris said...

Hmmm...I'm not a lurker but I want to play! Something about me...I have a secret addiction to crime dramas. Like Law & Order, CSI, anything!
