Alrighty then...

First of all: A rather new blogger friend of mine sent me a lovely parcel a couple of days ago and I fell in love with one of the pieces in it! Can you guess why? I love this mug, because somebody sent it to me, for no reason other than that she was reminded of me when seeing it. Thank you, Cindra!


Some stuff going on in the world of blogging:

a) check me out over at Shayna´s My Music Highway. It is a lovely project and I would like to thank her for letting me add my bit to it. And Shayna, I always love the graphics you make for us. How funky is that picture?

b) check me out over at The Brawl! where I´ll be guest-posting this Thursday. I am a tad nervous, since those people playing over there are smart beyond reason. Nope, can´t fool you...I had fun with it and am very happy with what I sent in. I dare you to disagree! Go ahead...check me out!

Now...Tomorrow Evening this here Penguin will go *drum rolls* :



That´s right. Be envious. I´d be too :) It will be a hell of a concert and I can´t wait to see those dudes "live" and if I know Iceland, and I think I do, I might see them up close and personal in a bar somewhere downtown after the fiesta! I´ll be a picture of health and recommended sleep Friday morning at work, for sure!

Our Weekly Thursday Brain Teaser will be delayed. Hey... others can take a vacation, so can I! You´ll live :)

That Cindra is pretty wonderful - as is the recipient of that adorable mug.

And although I confess I'm not entirely sure what you're going to see, it looks like it'll be rockin, so for that I am jealous.

And speaking of rockin, looking forward to having The Ice Queen rule the Brawl on Thursday!

Hi sistah! I don´t know if you have followed up on this whole Rockstar Supernova extravagance a while back. One Icleander was part of it there and now a few of the finalists are coming to play here and the Houseband (one of the most amazing bands I have heard!) arrived today as well. And if IMing can be trusted, another finalist-still unknown is sceduled to appear :) We´ll see!
For such a tiny country-this is an amazing gig and one not to be slighted by this Penguin :) Am I right, neva?

You are certainly welcome, Minka!

Have a ball, rockin' out. Sounds like a good time. I'm so looking forward to your guest post over at Sar's!

 
At 04:43, Blogger QuillDancer said...

Minka, I guess I can wait for your concert seeing as how I was the first to comment on your post at Sar's. Enjoy your concert!

Hi Minka,

Have a blast at the concert. Wanted to tell you that I have been reading my poetry and stories to my friends who I talk to on the phone. Should you be interested, I'd love to read some to you. Let me know. ((((hugs)))

It's finally warming back up here. About 28 degrees and sunny today. ;)

P.S. I miss you.

You are quite the popular Penguin...posting here, there, everywhere! Expect a full review on the concert...should be a blast!

lovelovelove the mug. lovelovelove your guest posts. loveloveLOVED Rockstar Supernova (so you just know we're jealous). and i agree... if *some* folks can sneak away from their regular posting schedule from time to time, *you* can too!

enjoy the day, dear friend, and your well-deserved time in the limelight! xox

 
At 17:15, Blogger FelineFrisky said...

Minka - have fun at all your little jaunts! Boy, you are one popular penguin this week! So what else is new? LOL Have a great time at the concert and pictures! D :)

 
At 01:02, Blogger tsduff said...

Have fun after the concert :-) When we were over there, we retired much too early to catch the party crowd downtown. You youngsters... GRIN~

 
At 01:32, Blogger Minka said...

aisha...I fixed that link and thank you. (It´s just easier this way :)

Doug, I had a fabulous time, I am hoping for soembody having posted something on You tube by tomorrow. Awesome show, I am still high :)

Cindra, hope you´ll like it!

Quilly, if I am not mistaken you commented at least three times on my post over there...that was very sweet :)

Brian...it was teh hugs that gave it away and thank you, I did have a blast!

Joel, working on it as we speak!

neva, thanks for your lovelovelove. I hope there never goes by a day without it :)

FF, I didnæt take my camera. I am a hazzard to myself. I would jump in excitement, drop it and step on it...I would kneel teary eyed down to pick it up and soembody would fall over me...rules of cause and effect! There is no point, I am not supposed to hold stuff :) But i am sure picture will be taken by others and I´ll just check the newspaper ;)

terry, since I have an eight o´clock morning tomorrow...I decided to go home afte rteh concert :) But not to worry....there is a second concert tomorrow night and tehy will go downtown afte rthat one, so I still can catch up with them if needs should arise :)

I LOVED your stint over at Sar's... am running late on all my visits but I WILL make it on over to the Music Highway project... first off to yoga and I HAD to say an early am good morning to you oh fantabulous and beautiful Minka!

Have a fab Friday and a wonderful and peaceful weekend!

Besos...

Hase, hase, Minka, und tchüss!

 
At 14:28, Blogger Sar said...

I'm glad you enjoyed the concert, and I'm still loving that you say you're high from the concert. Coming back from a concert high is a right of passage for some here in the states, and it has a completely different connotation, of the chemical enhancement variety. :)

Rabbit, Rabbit, Penguin Penguin! xox

 
At 16:53, Blogger Minka said...

Miz B...I am running late on all blogs :) And teh one I make a rule of being on time, is on vacation. The whole world seems to fall apart. We´ll persevere, deep breaths everybody!

Doug, safe travels, tie your shoe laces and if I hear bad stories of you in Europe, I´ll slap you silly! :)We´ll miss you!

sar, yeah I fugured as much...I am usually high...but on life! It was amazing concert!

neva, hase hase!

 
At 23:28, Blogger SquareGirl said...

So many places at one time, how does one gal manage it! Loved your posts at Sar's and Shayna's and that is a great mug. Sounds like you enjoyed the concert too!

What's a concert???

Yes, it's been that long!

 
At 04:18, Blogger tsduff said...

It was a dark and stormy night...

 
At 13:46, Blogger QuillDancer said...

Dang, Minka -- that's one looooong concert. Are you ever coming back? This has everything to do with evanescence, and nothing to do with crazy pills, right?

 
At 17:43, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Minka, YOU are smart beyond reason!
I confess I know nothing about this group, but know how exciting it is to see someone you really admire--so I hope you had a blast! The devil take the morning after.

You did a fantastic job over at Sar's--I didn't make it 'round to the other one *sigh*
Happy weekend:)

Minka, forget the concert and head over to Doug's. His story's taken a turn to ICELAND now.

 
At 20:30, Anonymous swampwitch said...

Just popped in to see what's going on here. You are a busy gal and having fun. Keep it up.

Minka - you are cued at Doug's place. He is at your house for vacation.

Al, that was exceptional poor instruction-following.

 
At 08:02, Blogger Doug said...

Monika, that wasn't me in Der Zeitung, honest. OK, so the shoelaces: The rabbit comes out of the hole, runs in a circle, then what?

Grüße schöne!

Aww, Moriarty, look at what I had to work with...

Hats off to you, Mrs. Nesbit! (Moriarty, you're on your own)

Uh, oh...are we supposed to send you something?

A palm tree seed will be shipped shortly.

At 13:45, Blogger QuillDancer said...

Minka -- Yep, I missed you. I mean, the baby ate my dingo and I had no one to tell.

 
At 23:12, Blogger tsduff said...

Oh, and I've tagged you on my blog. :-D

 
At 06:10, Blogger Doug said...

Minka, I'm fine. Europe is looking a little shaky.

You must be enjoying your vacation.

 
At 12:43, Blogger Minka said...

Quilly, I so understand! I have my last Red Cross meeting today and then i´ll be actually able to return to the world of blogging! I missed it!

terry, ain´t that just marvelous?! :) I´ll check it and do it later tonight with my Thursday Brain Teaser!

Doug, of course it does, you stepped on it!

goldennib, what´s with all teh preasure around here. I´ll have a new post up later today, promise!

 
At 18:56, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I thought I commented, but then it wasn't a "proper" comment. So hope you've enjoyed your concert and whatever else is going on keeping you busy.

Who know? Maybe a brain teaser tomorrow?

 
At 22:11, Blogger Doug said...

Minka, that was funny. I have no retort.

 
At 00:09, Blogger Minka said...

G...it will be up in say 30 minutes?

Doug, it takes a strong man to admit defeat;)

 
At 17:59, Blogger Doug said...

I have the heart of a horse.
