Hello, I love you. Won't you tell me your name?

I'm taking roll.

I'm curious: who is reading this? I think it's important to know, for example, if my inquisitive neighbor has read about herself. What about questionable doctrine lady? What about Carly and Marcy?

If you would, just this once, identify yourself in the comments, I would be most appreciative. Friends, strangers, familial relations, lurkers, stalkers, one and all, please come forward. Make yourself known.

You can say "here" or "present" or recount what book you are currently reading or your favorite lyric from your favorite song from The Doors. Anything you want to say. Just say something.

Ready? Go.

I like your blog--
Did you like the MOVIE Special Sisterhood Pants? You know the one. . . ?

Kacy said...

I read often. And I am a Peace Frog fan. Blood screams the pain as they chop off her fingers! It's the coolest part.

amye said...

I am more confused than ever. Aren't you?

Ryan said...

Turn me out and I'll wander baby
Stumblin' in the neon groves

ryan said...

Or...

Your fingers weave quick minarets
Speak in secret alphabets


Or...

Before I sink into the big sleep
I want to hear I want to hear
The scream of the butterfly

Sorry to ruin your tally by posting twice.

Present! And I LOVE your profile photo!

pepper said...

Just finished a book last night, The Kite Runner. It was a little cliche, but an enjoyable quick read. Our book club is meeting next week...

Angela said...

Yo!
And I don't have a favorite lyrical line from the Doors, because the only version of Doors music I own happens the be as interpreted by George Winston.

ahc said...

I'm here!

Right now I'm reading:
"Life and Death in Shanghai" by Nien Cheng

My favorite Doors lyrics are actually from "Hello, I Love You" because they always made me feel like a powerful woman when I hear them:

"She holds her head so high
Like a statue in the sky
Her arms are wicked, and her legs are long
When she moves my brain screams out this song. . ."

"Riders on the Storm" always cracks me up because the rhymes are all so forced. These are my absolute favorites because they are so RANDOM:

"There's a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin' like a toad
Take a long holiday
And let your children play"

Bek said...

I have been lurking for quite a while...I don't know you, but I know all the people that know you. I was mission comps w/ Carrie Ann, Suzi Petunia's in laws are in my current ward, Lisa V Clark was my roommate at The BY.........

I am in the Bay Area, CA. The last book I read was "The Devil Wears Prada". Those are the kinds of books I read...

I'm still trying to figure out some of the connections around here...

amyjune said...

oh yeah, I'm currently reading "Founding Mothers" by Cokie Roberts.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Usually you can't get a feel for a blog until your read several entries. Not this one, I was hooked immediately when I read your touching story about showing recent converts some unconditional love, sound advice and good old-fashioned hoochy shirts.

That's the way to spread the Gospel, Sister!

c jane said...

Hizzy.

Bek said...

hoochy shirts....what was the word you used? Boobitized?

Emily said...

Thank y'all for your participation.

Ed--Where do you dig to?
Bek and Lorien--I really don't know anyone, so don't try too hard to figure out the connections.
Mom--You win for the most entertaining comment.

Steve said...

Hi, I'm your husband. I've been lurking, stalking, and admiring right here in the open. "Come on baby, light my fire." Isn't that the obvious line?

Carly said...

I read. I read! I love yo' blog. I've just been flying under the radar lately since I have been away from Tucson. When will we meet at Ikea?

Elinor said...

Hi Emily, It's Elinor in Salt Lake. I like to read, even if I don't always comment. I've discovered I was born in a different century, a different world, but hey, as a writer, it is okay to explore the minds of others. You write well. Last book I reaad was Alan's 1949-51 missionary letters to and from Australia which we put inot a binder, in vinyl slip in envelopes. Lots of history and we love re-doing his mission in those days of getting shown the gate, of being homesick not for Canada but for Adelaide, and knowing all that dame later, musing on the events of small happenings that would bring big things. I was 14 going on 15 years old, he was 23. Little did we dream what events would eventually give us 50 years together. A faithful reader.

Elinor said...

Oops, a few typos. I meant to say we put the letters into a binder. I also know how to spell read. Actually, we're still reading these interesting tidbits of history, so I wasn't entirely truthful when I said I'd read it all or listened as Alan read it.

Last book I read all the way through and all by myself was Joseph Smith, the Man and Seer by Hyrum Andrus. Before that it was the White Indian Boy, 1919 edition.

Jessica Lowenthal said...

oh, hey, sorry, late but here. You're very funny.

Julie said...

I'm late too. Just stumbled onto your blog, but I'm Lorien's neighbor and have read Bek's & Lisa Clark's blogs lots of times. No song lyrics here--my mom brain doesn't retain things like that anymore.

Alice said...

I lurk a lot.

Emily said...

Oh, I'm so flattered. I lurk on yours, too, Alice. Elasticwaistbandlady, Julie, everyone, welcome!

AzĂșcar said...

I lurk.

I hate The Doors.

There are ten books patiently waiting for me to finish the BofM.

Christian F said...

Here, lurking.

Eliza said...

I'm extremely late but at least I can make it an uneven 35.

I lurk now and then. There seems to have been a blog explosion in the past year or so and it's hard to keep up with the interesting ones. But I always enjoy, and I must say...I'm quite impressed by your feedback and am scared to do the same roll call on my own. What if nobody's really there...?

Keep blogging. We're reading!

Marcy Dibbleblotts said...

i'm here. or should i say back and hitched.

emma jo said...

I lurk too--or too lazy to comment. I am related to one of your biggest fans and am always confused when you comment on hers (Suzie's)--I see your name and have to say, "Hey, I didn't say that"
