Sponsored By Sesame Street (kind of)

I’m always looking for ways that we can be a little more interactive here on the Gitzen Girl blog. I love that you show up every day to read my ramblings, but sometimes I wonder what YOU ALL really want to read about. And I think I may have figured out a fun way to let you decide.

On Mondays, we’re going to pretend that we’re back in our younger days of watching Sesame Street… where each episode was brought to you by a letter of the alphabet.

I’m going to give you the chance to pick my topic of the day, and each week’s topic will correspond with the next letter in the alphabet. For example, next Monday’s topic will have to start with the letter “A” … but YOU ALL will have to provide the topic for me. You can have me tell you about my [A]ll time favorite meal, or tell you a story about owning an [a]quarium or inquire about whether or not I’m [a]ccident prone. I would appreciate it if you didn’t ask about crazy topics like aardvarks or acroliths, because those are topics for which I don’t necessarily have a lot of experience [I totally grabbed that last one randomly at dictionary.com].

I have, however, read enough Harry Potter books to tell you how to do the [a]ccio spell if you’re interested.

At the end of each Monday’s blog post, I’ll have you give me suggestions in the comment section for the following week’s letter. Beer, Cats, Driving while my car starts on fire [oh wait, that one was already covered…], basically the sky is your limit.

This could be fun… I’ve always liked a good challenge. :)

Ok, peeps, start posting topics in the comment section! And remember, next week’s blog post will be brought to you by the letter [A].

40 comments:

  1. How about A is for Accidents, Ambulance, and Arithmetic. Any stories that might fit there? :) Any accidents that led to an ambulance ride? Did you like to study arithmetic?

  2. Animals - different animals that have been part of your life. There had to be others before Riley, even though he probably doesn't like that idea.

  7. How about your favorite recipe with "almonds" or something that made you particularly "angry" ... although I find that one hard to see in your sweet self! :) Or, better yet, what is one of the most "awesome" things God has done in your life ... you know, something that really dropped your jaw! Fun!

  9. "attitude" I would like to talk to you about how you keep such a good attitude. Is it something you just are or do you work at being positive? And how do you achieve it each day, moment ect. And do you ever find yourself in the dark place of a bad attitude?

  25. You deserve a great deal of adulation for your very creative idea. Of course an addled brain like mine would never think of something this awesome.

    Have you ever wanted to play the accordion? That would be quite an achievement!

    We already know how adorable Riley is. Maybe next time you cut his hair you could give him an afro, although that might alarm him.

    He is such an all-star that even the Almighty would be proud to have him as a friend. However I am not sure you would describe him as an angel.

    In an alternative universe Riley might be complaining about how much he has to clean up after you.

    Did you ever audition for a part in a play? It would be very annoying if you didn't get the part.

    My poor ancient brain has run out of ideas. You should have enough ammunition already to come up with an artistic post.

  28. Okay - Ed is just a suck up!

    How about Anything At All!
    Antebellam Attrocities or
    Atrocious Accidents or
    Android Aliens or
    Awful Answers

    Sorry - I couldn't help myself.

    Seriously how about someplace that you have Always wanted to go?

  29. Ahhh, adorable Sara. Are anyone's authorings as admirable as yours? Always acing all arguments and animatedly addressing appealing affairs. Ack! An appetite for alliteration almost annihilated my ability to adequately answer!

    Let's hear about APPAREL! (I don't think anybody said this one!) We all know you're gorgeous - what do you wear that makes you feel pretty? :-D

    Great idea, Sara! I second the idea to talk about your illness and research, etc. related to that topic for "A". I know it would help us all understand your day to day struggles. PS-I think you're amazing and I WISH I lived closer so that I could get to know you in person! :)
    Blessings,

  38. All I can think of is friends or family and you've covered that pretty well. Wait. I just thought of another one. What's your biggest fear?

    I haven't visited in a while. Life happened. I hope you're doing well.

  39. Sara, the strangest thing just happend. I was just emailed a notification of a relpy to my comment, but it looked peculiar (no actual text), and when I clicked on it to come here and look, it showed that *I* had posted when I most certainly did not! Should I be worried?
