The Peeing Mantis – Unmasked!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 27, 2011 by butterflyliz32

Sort of.

Thanks to those that have continued to hit this site.  I have been on other blogging adventures.  But do not worry.  I will be back to this blog shortly.

My mother is an awesome artist, and I asked her to take my vision of The Peeing Mantis and bring her to life.  Man, did she ever pull through!  This is what TPM looks like in my brain:

I hope it was worth the wait.


Woooooah! And I do apologize…

Hey people!  I can’t believe the number of hits I am getting on a daily basis, and I have been REALLY behind in updating!  I think I started this blog about 15 months ago, and I am closing in on 6,000 hits!!  Dang!  Thank you for stopping by… adding it to your RSS feed… sending me out in your company newsletter… etc.

I will be picking this up again after the holidays, and will hopefully have a few characters to put up on the character page!  Sorry I have been so slow to update!  Real life and the world’s easiest divorce got in the way.

In the meantime, I will tell you that even though someone has FINALLY put up a note in the “Ladies” room (and YES the quotation marks are sarcastic) regarding “respectful bathroom behavior”, the Peeing Mantis is still on the loose.  Hey Santa… if you want, I will be glad to reveal her identity so that you can fill her stocking with lumps of coal… or perhaps some toilet paper and seat protectors… or perhaps a new brain entirely.  Ooooh… maybe she needs Hooked on Phonics to see that note was meant for HER.  You are not on my gift list this year, PM.  Oh no.  You are on a completely different list.  Oh yes.  You are.
One more thing – I have noticed that I have been placed in many a blogroll, and I thank you very much!  I will be adding to my blogroll soon, so if you would like your blog linked through mine, please send me a little comment love with the name of your site and I will be happy to post!  We all have to stick together in this great big blogosphere!

For more fun, festive Holiday readings, check out my sister blog:

Happy Holidays from the 4th floor!

I was super excited to see that I recently got a new blog award from my new friend, Amy!  I met her recently through a mutual friend and enjoyed talking to her right away!!  She has been very sweet and encouraging of all of my blogs :).  Thanks, Amy!

My Award, Isn't it Cute!

Da rules:

1. You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs in a post.

2. You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions in the post.

3. You must copy and paste the rules and the instructions below in the post.

Instructions: On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them. When you post your five winners, make sure you link them as well. To add the award to your post, simply right-click, save image, then “add image” it in your post as a picture so your winners can save it as well. To add it to your sidebar, add the “picture” widget. Also, don’t forget to let your winners know they won an award from you by emailing them or leaving a comment on their blog.

So I would like to pass the award on to several people.


The Hebert Family:  Melanie and I have been friends since Jr. High, and I just love being able to keep up with the goings on of her family.  She is also a big supporter of my particular brand of snark, so that makes me really happy!  And sorry for never being able to figure out how to make the accent mark in your names.  It’s pronounced “A-Bear”, not He-Burt.  🙂

Lori Brown Blog: Even though I know you will never get around to accepting this award… I couldn’t give out a “Your blog is FABULOUS” award without including you!  Love you, girl!!

The Bloggess: Jenny just gets funnier and funnier!  Keep ’em coming, girl!!  You also have the funniest commenters I have ever seen.  I wish they were on my blog.  No, seriously… send them to my blog [using Jedi mind trick].  hehe

Can’t Hardly Wait:  I have recently started reading this blog and find Georgette’s writing style to be right up my alley.  We are also in similar situations, so it is sometimes good to read these things through the eyes of others.

The Daily Blonde:  I follow Cheryl through Twitter, and also through her blogs.  She is hysterical!!

Honorable Mentions: Maggie Dammit, Little Miss Obsessive, Zrtist (Due to there only being 5 and trying to diplomatically spread the love around)


Now for the fabulous addictions:

  1. Blogging– Duh!  I currently run four blogs of my own (This one, This One, one for my niece, and “the other one” – if you want to see that one, let me know.  I try not to spread it around 😉 .  I am also helping Zrtist with his site until he has time to get it up and going.  What can I say?  I have the gift for gab!
  2. The Girls Next Door – Yeah, I admitted it.  Sue me.
  3. Scrapbooking & Photography
  4. Dr. Pepper
  5. Office Supplies – Yes… I am a fool for a new address book, notepad, and some great new pens.  I think there is a 12-step program.

So, now it is YOUR turn to spread the love!  Send this on to your 5 favorite bloggers!  Also, remember this – If we didn’t want people to read (read = COMMENT) on our blogs, we wouldn’t bother blogging!!  Send a shout out via comment so we know you are reading!
