de-lurk Friday

It’s official. Today is the day that all of you out there that I never hear from get to say “hi”. And to sweeten the deal, commenter #?? will win a little prize (of the itunes variety). I’m especially interested to see how many men are reading, Jim thought maybe 20% of my readers are men. I think maybe 4 of my readers are men, all of whom I know.

So you can just stop by to say “hi.” You can tell me a little about yourself or you can tell me your favorite item on the toilet list. Make sure you include a valid email address with your comment so I can email the winner about their prize!

Let the de-lurking begin.

    I’m not a man but my favorite toilet items are: Honor, the raisin he wanted to eat and the one, no two, no three, actually it’s four rolls of toilet paper.

    My favourites are the waffle and raisins. :)

    Hi – I’m Amy, I love your blog and I especially love your toliet list. I would have to say my favorite is the raisin, clentched in hand… that was almost eaten after being in the toilet. But they are all great.

    Hello! I’ve been a lurker here for a few months…love the blog!

    I guess i don’t actually qualify as a lurker as this is my first time visiting your site – but i like it and i’m sure i’ll come back, so ‘Hi!’ It’s awesome to see all the stuff you’ve made, you’re so creative – go you! I want to take up some kind of creative/arty hobby to amuse me on evenings/rainy days in my campervan when i head off to Europe in July. Maybe i’ll give knitting a shot!

    Hi I’m here for the knitting but love the cute pouty kids too!

    Hey there! I have commented before…in reference to lusting after your leopard rug. I forget how I found your blog. I love reading about your “adventures in parenting,” since I’m finished with that part of my llife. I’m going to be a grandma in December!

  9. Christy

    I found your blog through Jill, who reads my friend’s (Bridget’s) blog. My favorite item on the toilet list is “Honor”. And yes, I admit, that I have tried your enchilada casserole! I feel so exposed. :)

    OK, I’ll bite.
    I came via g* awhile ago and had to add you to my ‘visit daily’ bookmarked blogs. I love your style, go awww over your adorable kids and envy your knitting skills. I don’t think I have a favourite toilet thing, but love the fact that you have a list. When I have kids I plan to collect lists like that to bring out at their 21st brithday.

    I am a lurker …a g* sister. I don’t have kids but I would like some someday once my life slows the heck down. I like your sense of humour about things. It inspires me.

  12. Michelle

    Hi! I hereby admit to being a Lurker. I found your blog thru my sister’s old roomy blog (Jasmine). I love your site! Your kids (and dogs) are adorable, your entries make me laugh and I really like seeing all the items you knit – it’s a gift! I tried to make a dishcloth once….i’ve stayed away from those needles since then. (I’m also very fond of your new site layout and colour scheme).

    p.s. i’m female and from Canada!

  13. Sammie

    I’m a mom of three children, I guess I’ve been lurking now for about 9 months or so. I’ve made your black bean wraps, they were yummy. We have them all the time now.

    My favorite toilet item is of course your tooth brush. I pick it as my fav because at least you knew it went in, not like them telling you about it a few days later. see, there is a plus to every story.
    Your blog is great!!!

  14. joelene

    um, i guess i lurk, but then again i do call you on the phone….

    you know i am always reading even though i don’t comment!

  15. Dawn

    I think you’re responsible for my blogline addiction. lol. I usually read you more on bloglines than at your actual site and so I don’t tend to comment.

  16. Jane

    Hi! I lurk, I knit and I am a mommy! I mainly lurk for the knitting, but love the Eden and Honor stories!

  17. Kim

    I’m a blogless lurker, I admit it. I’ve been reading knitting blogs since the Knitting Olympics, and I have no idea how I found yours, but I like to read it. One blog leads to another…

  18. Jasmine

    I’m here reading all the itme but I rarely comment. I found you through g* (the one and only time I ever visited) and I stayed because of your awesome kids. Idesperately want to be a mom. I also love that you knit. I’ve been very excited to see you around craftster more and more.


  19. Nora

    I found your site by accident and now check it almost every day to read your blog… it provides me with a bit of humor in my otheriwse bland and boring work day. Plus, I can relate to almost everything you write about… Thanks for the entertainment.. and all of the good info!

  20. sarahgrace

    Okay- I’m here everyday- but I just have to say, where are the guys?

  21. Scout


  22. Ursula

  23. krista

    i don’t need a priz, but delurking to let you know i subscribe with loglines, and read your site regularly. ;)

  24. Amy

    Hi, my name is Amy and I am a lurker. I love your site and your family is sooo cute. My husband and I are planning to start our own family soon and I read your site to get myself prepared. Oh, I knit and craft too. Thanks!

  25. ratichoo

    Alright, I’m a lurker too… My name’s Dorothee, I’m French and I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while now. Your kids always crack me up!
    I liked all items of your list, because I was glad I didn’t read of this particular item I fished once: a dead kitten which had drowned jumping in the toilet not being able to climb its way out… Now I ALWAYS close the lid… (sorry this is a bit long!)

  26. Candice

    Not a lurker. I just haven’t checked in in a while, lol. I love the raisin the best.

  27. Gina

    I’ve been lurking for a while, love your blog. I’m a mom of a 23-month old and a 10-week old, pretending to be sane as well. Your stories about your kids are hilarious, keep it up!

  28. Karin

    Female here. Love your stuff.

  29. Daph

    I’m a lurker, but I also comment, so I guess that doesn’t count. :) Cool to see that you have so many “hidden” readers out there!

  30. Francesca (Stuntmother)

    I’m a luuuuuuurker. I’m a luurrrrrrker. I forget how I found you but I enjoy reading your pretended sanity. Oh, and it’s Sunday but still lurking.

    I can mostly barely manage to pretend I’m sane. But it’s still better than the alternatives!

  31. erin

    krazigal from g*!

  32. marie b.

    Sláinte. I pop by from time to time through the blogroll of one of my friends.

  33. Jordan

    Hi! I started reading for the knitting, and, well, now I’m just reading for everything. I do think the toilet list is hilarious, but I don’t know that I have a favorite, at least not today. Cheerio!

  34. JessicaMae

    I found you about a year ago…and fell in love with the fact that you knit. (i am addicted to knitting too.) and so i have stayed to lurk. I love the site, and think you are wonderful!

  35. Sarah

    Hi! This is sarahelizabeth from g*. I’m a lurker, too. I like reading your blog because you’re like a Dooce that I sort of “know.” I’m still telling people about how you helped me set up my wireless internet. That was awesome!
