You can’t spell "Mofo" without "Mo"

The Great Mofo Delurk 2007

Today is the launch of “The Great Mofo Delurk.” This is a chance for you to leave your feed readers and say, “Hey there Mona!” or “Woman, where’s my money?” To the latter, I must insist, it’s on its way. Just give me more time.

So this weekend I surprised Mike with two tickets to Billy Joel. He said, “This is the nicest thing you’ve ever done for me!”

I was a little taken aback. “Really? This is the nicest thing I’ve ever done for you? Surely there was something I did nicer than this!”

And we sat there trying to think of something, anything. A long pause filled the room then I answered, “What about the time I didn’t kick your ass? That was very nice of me. Was that Christmas or something?”

So back to the delurking focus of today: say hey, would you? And if my mom asks, this blog is really an online dedication to the Virgin Mary. Deal?

    Hi! Delurking to say…Oh, wait. Yeah. It’s me…couldn’t shut me up if you tried. Well, maybe you could. I’ve heard of the possibilites of blocking IP’s but…you wouldn’t do that, right? Where is this paranoia suddenly coming from????

    Oh, and..nicest thing you ever did for him? Carrying his child? šŸ˜€

    Now two people have done this so I think I have to, too. Baa.

  5. Well hey, Mona!

    Now I’m off to listen to “Strapped for Cash” by Fountains of Wayne… so I can come up with some better excuses about that money.

  6. Hi! I’m De-Lurking Too!

  21. lauralaylin says:

    I think pushing a baby out was nicer than Billy Joel tickets, but it’s a close call.

  22. Bethiclaus says:

    What up, Mo?

  23. hiya! but I’m not REALLY a lurker, am I? šŸ˜‰

  24. hey mona, i read your blog often and it cracks me up. i have read so much about you and seen so many photos that i wonder if i saw you at safeway would i run up to you like a crazed fan and say hi. i’ll be cool though and leave you and brad pitt in peace. delurking, erin

  25. OK I’m lurking. I’ll tell your mom you’re the new internet te’cha! She’ll be so proud.

  26. Chickenbells says:

    Oh…I just found you recently and have been enjoying myself..I certainly didn’t mean to lurk (wink wink)

  27. shirley eugist says:

    I’m not always a lurker, but I’ll say hey anyway.

    What up, G?

  28. I can’t remember if this is an official delurking or not, but I’m been stopping by for a while and am very guilty of never commenting.

    So, hello!

  29. Jammie J. says:

    I delurked recently somewhere, might have been here. Or not. So, hey!

  30. bananafana says:

    well hey! delurking to say love the blog and LOVE the photos

  31. gosh Mo, I’ve met your hubby, and while he is a great guy, I can think of plenty of things you have done for him nicer than Billy Joel tickets. How about dating him, marrying him, sleeping with him and bearing his kid? I’d say all of those are “nicer” than the tickets, but hey, who am I to judge?

    btw, love the blog.

  32. This is cool, look at all the purty lurkers!

    Also, pity the whole “bore your child” thing didn’t come up. Too OBVIOUS, I guess.

  33. So you are telling me that you cant pay me my money but you can buy Billy Joel tickets? Hmmm…. something funny about that.

  34. I think I’ve commented before. I have a 13 month-old girl named Jasmine, and my mom is Korean šŸ™‚


  35. Hi, I’ve been reading your blog for about 2 years but have never commented. You’re hilarious and a very talented writer — and a great mom too!

  36. Hi Mona,
    A-1, first class MoFo’ing lurker here. I have enjoyed your blog for a little over a year, and frankly, I’m obsessed (but not in a creepy, screaming Britney Spears fan kind of way, mostly in the “OMG Mona is so freaking hysterical and I think she is wicked cool” kind of way). Okay, so that’s that. Maybe now I’ll just leave comments more often.

  37. Hello! I love your crazy myspace faces.
