not just any old number.
as in 12 days of Christmas?
12 days of posting!
already? you ask.
12 is a funny number isn't it?
one less than a baker's dozen.
twice more than 6.
speaking of 6.
there's 6 degrees of separation.
i find that fascinating.
most of the blogs i read can be connected to each other.
that's how i found them in the first place.
there's Pretty in the City (the first ever blog I knew about and read every day way back when, when it was SaveKaryn.com)
do you remember Save Karyn?
she was a quirky girl in NY who had the unique idea of getting out of debt by having people send her money.
she'd racked up debt by overspending.
at least she was completely honest about that.
she sold stuff on ebay too and with everyone's help, some people sent a dollar (that's all she asked for from each person) she was able to get out of debt.
it was unique and very funny.
and if she hadn't already done it first i could've done it.
but it's too late now.
i'm not sure how i found Toni at ExPat Mum's blog.
she's in chicago.
not long after i was reading it i realized that we'd both gone to the same convent school back in newcastle.
back in the day.
i'm a tad older than her.
i think our school was one of those all girls' schools that once you'd been a part of it you would never be the same.
(that's another post.)
then recently i met Trish at Mum's gone to
so i'm reading her post the other day and she wrote about her favourite teacher
and i realized i'd had the same teacher too.
(who was NOT my favourite teacher)
but that could also be another post.
another ex convent school girl!
i wonder how many of us are out there in blogging land?
what i really wonder is whether any of us ever became nuns?
i somehow think not.
so you see.
it's not just an ordinary number after all.
it's 2 more than 10.
and we all know about 10 right?
but we won't go there now.
come back tomorrow when 13 will be revealed in all of its glory.
tonight i'm going to see 3 different scottish comedians.
(3 of course is 9 less than 12 but you can see the connection right?)
none of whom are Billy Connolly.
or Frankie Boyle
sad to say.
i don't know who we are seeing as yet as somebody else has got the tickets.
i'll let you know how good they were.
tho' i won't be able to remember any of their jokes.
i never can.
today is friday the 12th.
which when you think about it, is almost friday the 13th.
that would have been just weird.
i'm going to go now.
