Good morning! You’re looking fabulous this morning, I have to tell you. Come on in; pull up a chair. Can I get you anything? Coffee? Tea?? Me???
I’m being facetious; obviously that last menu item is only available by special request for Dave (and Ryan … and Nathan … and Matt …)What I can offer you, fabulous-looking readers of mine, is a spot on my team. But more on that in a moment. First, a note about today’s post topic.
Since it’s Tuesday, and since we’re already more than halfway through the month, we’d normally be spending our time together today talking about the latest book in my “13 in ’13 Reading Challenge”. However, since Dave threw down the Gosling-shaped-gauntlet yesterday, we need to take a little break in our regularly scheduled programming for me to properly respond.
Now, you might be thinking that I ought to accomplish both of these goals at once. But amb! you might be thinking, the next book up for review is “Austenland” and, really, if you can’t make some valid “Dave as Darcy” arguments at this stage, then you’re not the girl I thought you were!
No, fabulous readers, I am exactly the girl you think I am; I could make “Dave as Darcy” arguments in my sleep. Which is why I’m saving that for later in the week, when I’ll be working from home after a morning doctor’s appointment.* Today, meanwhile, we have very important things to talk about.
Like why you need to be on Team Amber for the rest of this week-long challenge.
Aside from the satisfaction you’ll get from being a part of the winning team (which, really, is a reward all its own) you’ll also get
Some really awesome Imaginary Team Amber swag!
We’ve got buttons …
… and we’ve got t-shirts!
Now, you might be thinking that although the Imaginary Swag is about seven kinds of awesome, I really ought to properly respond to Neuroscience Carlson over there. But amb! you might be thinking, free Imaginary Swag is about seven kinds of awesome, but really, if you can’t come up with a personalized internet meme then you’re not the girl I thought you were!
No, fabulous readers, I am exactly the girl you think I am; of course I have a personalized internet meme for Dave! Featuring the equivalent of his very own Ryan Gosling. This may come as a shock to most of you, but I’m not Dave’s only Imaginary Girlfriend. I happen to know there are a few other names on the list along with yours truly, and I happen to know that a certain Ukrainian actress, supermodel, and singer is at the top of it.
So, sugar, I see your special edition “Hey Girl” meme, and raise you …
Thanks for coming to play today, everybody! (You too, Dave). Your buttons and t-shirts are in the mail. Come back tomorrow for a very special edition of Wordful Wednesday … we won’t be talking about who you think we’ll be talking about, I promise.
* I swear that isn’t a sympathy ploy to get you on my team – I really do have a procedure scheduled for Thursday. No need to worry though – it’s a regular thing that happens every few months in my world, and I’ll be back to my usual flibbertigibbity self by Friday!
