Tense for a Reason

And Awa-a-a-a-a-ay We Go (First Post)

Filed under: Blogathon — Tense @ 8:00 am

It’s time to start Blogathon 2007! I’ve had my shower, put on a little bit of makeup, brushed my teeth, slathered myself in grapefruit-scented lotion, ate some breakfast, and I’m drinking my green tea — I figured if I acted like I was getting dressed to go out of the house, I would have to wake up. So far, so good. I’m awake and ready… I think.

I’ve got a few things planned for today — I’m going to post about my cleft lip experience, share a few stories and pictures from The Smile Train, do some quizzes and give away some prizes, fill out some memes — but for the most part, I’m just going to try to write and post when I’m supposed to. I look forward to interacting with my readers and fellow Blogathoners, too! If you want to chat with me, and you have a Yahoo! Messenger account, add me as a friend; my ID is tenseteacher74. It’s going to be a busy day, despite my being stuck on my couch, but I’m stoked!

Don’t forget to cheer on my friends who are participating in the Blogathon, too: Laci is blogging for the WHS Children’s Crusade; Chatty is blogging for the Jimmy Fund; Melanie will be blogging for Donors Choose; and Sodapop will be blogging for AFAN: Aid for AIDS of Nevada. Oh, and it’s not too late to make a pledge if you’d like (click on the Blogathon link in my blogroll); any amount is greatly appreciated. All money goes directly to the charity; neither the participants, nor the Blogathon itself gets any of money pledged. And don’t forget to check out the charity itself; there’s a link to The Smile Train in the sidebar too.

Here we go!



  1. I am here between two computers, one upstairs and one downstairs. I haven’t showered yet and am waiting for my hubs to leave for his boys day on the boat!

    I’ll be in chat mode in a moment!

  2. I have not yet showered… but I did brush my teeth!… but I am about to make some breakfast. I agree the secret is tricking yourself into thinking you have somewhere to be! 🙂

  4. I do NOT know what’s going on with the Time Stamp on this stupid site… I’ve set it correctly in my setup options for the blog. I put my first post out there at 8:00 on the dot, but it shows 7:00 on the blog. I’m freakin out about this… This isn’t going to mess me up, is it?
