'Save the monkey, save the world!'

Happy De-Lurking Day...

Poor monkey! Hope he's/she's saved from whatever may befall . . .

Delurking, delurking! I hope the monkey is saved.

What does the monkey get? And who is LB?

From the look on the monkey's face, I don't think that there is anything better for it than putting it out of its terrorized misery.

I am enjoying the photo-text posts this week.
Saoirse said…
I'm here, I'm here!

(bathroom looks so clean you could operate in there--with the exception of the monkey)
alice c said…
I'm de-lurking super-quick.
Stuffed monkeys are my weak point.
Jennifer said…
I don't know... I'm not really into animals, so I'm not sure I'm all that into the monkey's welfare. What are the potential ramifications? Pulling it's stuffing out? Giving it to one of those children who breaks toys?
Julie said…
commenting not to save the monkey, but to tell you how glad I am that we have a new season of Survivor. Hopefully Dave(?-very annoying bossy man) goes this week.
jenny said…
I almost held out on you...just to see what torture you can come up with for the monkey.

But I didn't.

Who's LB?
BabelBabe said…

Tamara said…
This is one blog that I might actually be a lurker on, I don't think I've ever commented. Sorry about that. Here I am.
Found you through Bossy. I click because I HEART blackbirds. and your photos of confectionary.

De-lurking DAY? My ego loves this.

I plan to come back for more. The monkey charmed the pants off me.

Serial lurker, here. I think I've commented before, but probably not enough since I read you every day. I'll try to shape up. I love your blog that much.

Delurking to say thanks for all of the great posts. I've really liked the pictures/messages.

I'm a daily reader... Inspiring. Meant to comment on your shots of Positano - lovely. Have to go. BTW- The Hold Steady are amazing live. Really.
Geggie said…
I can see the headquarters of PETA from my house. Don't make me walk over there and report you.

I'm loving this series you're doing, but miss your updates.
chicken said…
Holy Shit is your bathtub clean.

And? Your blog makes me laugh. You rule!
Shelly Kang said…
Who me? I'm not lurking. Save the monkey!
Sharon said…
I'm here despite the fact that I do not like monkeys. Or clowns. In fact, if that had been a clown doll, I'd have stayed hidden.

Based on his expression, I worry about what happened to that poor monkey before he found his way into the (your?) bathroom.

Is it just me or is that monkey SCARY?
Yesterday's post is AMAZING.

de-lurking, upon request. hello. i read - and enjoy - every day
ssheers said…
As usual, I have nothing interesting to say.

I want to see what you were planning to do to the monkey.
Sitting said…
I don't know -- that monkey looks pretty guilty.

hello from South Carolina anyway ;)
MontanaJen said…
wowza! Look at all your readers!!
Mayvel said…
Delurking because I always like your photos, and no one writes so well about laundry.
Kel said…
Oficially delurking because I think I've only posted one comment in the past. My best to you!
sunshinemk said…
I've never posted here before, but I look forward to your blog everyday. I hope all ends well for the monkey.
cary perk said…
Life has been throwing you curves. I hope all these comments make you smile. Wishing you good things.
i vote the monkey should still get it. and by "it" i mean "a banana".
Irene said…
I'm here! I'm here!
Cate said…
I didn't realize that monkeys were indigenous to Tuvalu. Your bathroom is scary clean.
anonlurkermom said…
happy day! i check in often and love your site.
whitney said…
Please let no harm come to the monkey.
Rachel said…
I've always found stuffed monkeys creepy, but this one's kind of cute, I think it's the eyes, they're looking right at me, so I'll delurk to save it from IT, whatever that is. Happy de-lurking day!
Sarah and Jack said…
Well, I haven't been lurking here, but this is funny.
KD Smit said…
Delurking to say, "Hello from Portland!" I love to check in on your blog but I'm not too keen on the monkey... =)

Be well...

In consideration of The Great Mofo Delurk today, I am sending this little comment your way. I enjoy reading your blog regularly and look forward to every new post.
gabe said…
BB I am not a lurking but you should know that all the "DE" lurking has actually crashed haloscan today. Anarchy rules.
elena jane said…
i don't generally lurk on your blog, cos i find too much to comment about. cute monkey....
and to save a few strokes, love your survivor recaps....helps keep me up to speed :-)
BOSSY said…
Too too too too too funny.
kmkat said…
Delurker here. I am nothing if not obedient. Do we each get a reply as a reward for our delurking comment? or maybe a cookie?

Good idea, though -- lets you know roughly how many weirdos are lurking in the bushes :)
Amy A. said…
Not really a lurker, but signing on anyway. Got to keep the impressive comment count going.
Karen said…
I was worried about the monkey until I read the post from Oct 3, 2005. If the monkey gets "it", I'm sure Youngest can fix him right up. It won't be his first monkey operation.

I'm finally de-lurking. I have commented before, and you've been inspiring me to want to have my own blog for a long time. I finally started one the other day, so, thanks! I have been enjoying your posts for so long.
Christa said…
happy de-lurking day to you and greetings from sunny ca!
Stephanie said…

I hope the monkey is grateful.
Paula said…
Okay, de-lurking from Baltimore! Thanks for writing! But since I hate monkeys, can you please harm it anyway?
Annagrace said…
I guess this means I've been "officially" reading for a year--shoot dang. The rainy NW is now represented...
Terese said…
I'm always at the end of the comments cause I read your blog at breakfast, Sydney Australia time on the other side of the Pacific. It's better than the first cup of coffee. Save the monkey. Happy de-lurk day!
Anne said…
How fun. Hello from Minnesota.

Nah. Kidding. It's just me, Miz S.

But, I am very fond of you.

I'm 84th! I'm 84th!!!!!! And although I wouldn't necessarily consider myself a lurker, well, I'm delurkifying. 84th!
Sarah Meow-Meow said…
De-lurking to say the monkey's too cute to hurt. Long live the monkey!!
Nicole said…
Yes, but can the monkey write shakespeare if it pounds at a typewriter long enough?
Carol said…
De-lurking in San Francisco. Your blog is my favorite daily read--I must check on the happenings in Tuvalu. What does the monkey get?
Suzanne said…
It's hard to de-lurk when I don't think I was actually lurking in the first place, but I haven't commented in a bit.

The past few posts have been lovely and left me speechless.

And I've been sick.

(but that's no excuse).
Tamara said…
Happy delurking day.
robiewankenobie said…

MsCellania said…
Wow you are near 100 responses. I wasn't going to comment as I'm not a lurker, but would love to see you hit 100. Is that lipstick or photoshop?

Clearly that monkey is well loved. As are you, bb.

Bethany said…
I see that razor sitting innocently on the side of the tub... Suppose that's why the monkey's eyes are glassy with fright? At any rate, hi, and I enjoy your blog much!
Scot said…
Now aren't you glad you didn't give away those chairs? That creepy little might have made a mess in your nice clean tub!
