My friend Duwan had this great idea to do a blog post highlighting some of the fun and interesting comments you all have been leaving here on the blog. She has lots of great ideas - just check out the super cool and uber-frugal way she transformed Parmesan cheese containers into funky silverware holders using socks. Yep, you read that right - socks.
So here we go - some of the cool comments you all have left. I've left links to the commenters' blogs. Hop on over and say hi to them.
Talk Like a Pirate Day
On my post about Talk Like a Pirate Day, Alex J Cavanaugh said:
"Won't be dressing up but I'm willing to discuss salty seadogs with Simon."
What I love about this comment is that he's referring to my imaginary cat, Simon, who tends to make appearances on the first Wednesday of every month as part of the IWSG blog hop. Sometimes, I think Simon might actually be real and maybe I'm the one who is imaginary. Should I be concerned?
Loni Townsend at Squirel Talk made me laugh out loud with her comment on the same post:
"Arr! What be a pirate's favorite letter? Ye might think it be 'R,' but no, it be the 'C'!"
Go pay Loni a visit. She just did a cover reveal for her upcoming release. It's gorgeous!
Blogger or a Writer?
On my post about whether I'm a blogger who writes or a writer who blogs, Inka at Compass Heading 180 said:
"I think you must be some sort of a humanoid to be able to write as much as you do! For me it's an effort to even read as much, let alone write... I usually binge read your blog posts because I just can't keep up with your pace!"
I'm a ordinary human, right? Or am I an android who thinks she's a humanoid? Or a humanoid who thinks she's an android? Is Simon real or am I? I don't think I'm going to be able to fall asleep tonight - too many deep thoughts about what I really am and the meaning of life.
Inka is a Finnish sailor. She has some beautiful pictures of classic sailboats up on her blog right now. You'll want to check them out.
The White Shoes Debate
When I asked the question about whether or not it's okay to wear white after Labor Day, Sandee from Comedy Plus said:
"Fashion statement? I do what I want and at my age no one even says a thing. I used to go by these things, but no more."
Such a great sentiment! I'm of that age where I'm no longer worried about making a fashion statement. Sandee regularly features adorable pictures of kittens and puppies.
And Christine Rains cracked me up with her comment:
"... wear white shoes? All my shoes are black, so I'm good. :) I think these days no one pays attention to that fashion rule anymore, and I have no idea any other rules... as I type this wearing Captain America pajama bottoms and a T-Rex t-shirt."
I love her fashion sense! Where can I get a T-Rex t-shirt? Christine is an awesome writer. Hop on over to her site and check out her books.

Thanks for the awesome blog post idea, Duwan! I know that I've been slow to respond to them lately, but I love reading everyone's comments. I think highlighting what you guys are saying might just be a regular feature on the blog.
If you're a blogger, what are some of the fun and interesting comments people have left you?
