Yeh I'm Strange Like That

I have this strange thing, or quirk so to speak that I wish to share with you guys today, because we are all friends here right? and after reading this I know you won't think I'm a weirdo. Right.............right? OK what's with the silence? Any way if after reading this if any of you have the same cumpulsion please let me know. (insanity, like misery loves company)

It has to do with our profile pictures or the picture on our blogs, because I have never met any of you, or spoken to any of you, the only thing I have to go with when communicating is your picture, particularly when reading your comments to my brilliant blogs.

For instance, Justine's pic is of her hugging her adorable girls, in my head whileI am reading her comments on mine or another person's blog blog, I picture her speaking while constantly hugging her kids!

Sheila in Note Songs, boy that smile! It is so open and welcoming you think she will give you a big smothering hug and then take you in her home and feed you, I imagine her voice as sort of high pitched and pleasant. On a recent entry on her blog Sheila mentioned she is always smiling! See I was right!

Bridget becase she looks so calm and serene in her picture I always hear a calm and soothing voice when she speaks. I also think she never gets angry.

Becky because her head is at an angle in her pic, she looks like she is just popping in to say 'hi!' and then maybe her head will pop away from the photo just as suddenly. And she has a mischievous smile in the photo as well which influenced how i see her in my quirky head!

Glenda aka Tootsie even before telling us that she had a high pitched voice I imagined that's what her voice would have sounded like. Her profile picture is of her in her green house, so to me, of course she is always there!

From Kady's photo I imagine her speaking to us 'on the go' because in her photo she looks like she's stepping out to go somewhere!

French speaks to me in a blushing, laughing voice because she is being kissed on the cheek by handsome hubby!

Penny you know what I'm gonna say....... you should speak up! youre so gosh darn far away!! LOL!!

Buffy..................hmm, what can I say, she looks beautiful in her photo, and so sane which is the misleading part because she is such a classifed nutcase!!

Kathy, well actually your blog say so much! Your adventures keep me in stitches and I see that in your picture!!

Deb you look as you sound, you remind me of bridget, calm and fun person!

Ahhh and the faceless?! You are the shy bloggers! C'mon Gollum, damnemptynester, braincoral, jujuboo, show us who you are!! Cuz in my mind you guys are behind these curtains speaking to me and it is not so much fun as seeing you guys!

I started this blog a while ago but had yet to figure out the link thingy! now that I got it (thanks for the tip Justine!) I can link away!!

I thought I would use this particular blog to say 'hello' to all my friends in blogland, because I am not at home during the week for the next 4 weeks, so my weekend is when I can catch up on blogs I missed and touch base with you guys!

Well I'm off to catch up on more blogs and videos!


Justine said...

Well hello there fancy face! I was wondering where you'd gone to all week. Was actually starting to worry about, truth me told.
I too love being able to SEE who I'm reading about, talking to, etc. Can you tell from Buffie's picture that's got a really raspy but very nasally voice? No? I didn't think so, but it's true!

Justine :o )

Bridget said...

You are a pretty perceptive lady! I am pretty calm and quiet. I have been known to get mad on occasion. My daughter is usually the one that can push me to that point. I have lived through the teen years after all! LOL
You evaluation of Buffie was hysterical!
Hugs, Bridget

Buffie said...

LMAO! I am!!! I picture y'all that way too like your photos. I think your photo's perfect...I picture you as the cute girl with enough spunk to be funny as hell!

Penny said...

Hi Raquel, here is the link for the restaurant we went to Friday nite. The food was delicious. Yes, jerk seafood, chicken, oxtails, and some veggie dishes.

The pic I have IS too far away. I've included some recent pics of me inside the blogs, but I don't have a recent head shot. I'll have to work on that.

It was fun reading your thoughts on everyone's picture. I agree with Buffie that you're a really cute and spunky gal. You're also very sweet!


French said...

That was very insightful of you and not weird at all~~~unless of course I am weird too??? I actually have a very deep voice which often surprises people when they first hear me (lol) I think your a cutie and am very happy to have met you! If you get a chance stop in and meet my best friend who is a total hoot>>>Donna she is on my blog list;) French

Donna said...

Hey there!!!! Why sure you can add me to your blog list! I'm glad you asked!!!! (I see French was behind the connection...) I must admit, I have checked your blog out in the past... I liked it alot.. I just didn't want to intrude! I will be sure to add you to my list.. I look forward to reading about you and your family.

TTYL.. Oh yeah... let me know how you like the pasta salad!!!

Donna, xoxoxox
(What does my pic tell you about me?) Your pic says you are friendly and easy to get along with!!!

You hit that one on the head girl. I do meet some interesting people. I want to think a little of each if them has rubbed off on me, to make me who I am. A little crazy, alittle funny,a little soft , a little hard. A lot of things make each of us, that is why we aren't all alike. I agree with your thoughts of the lovely ladies in our blogland. Kathy

I had so much fun reading these! My profile picture was taken last summer on a vacation vist to Ravenwood Castle in south central Ohio. The grounds are gorgeous! My youngest son took the pic. Although I am capable of great laziness and days where I don't even want to leave the house, mostly I am on the go and like to get out and get away and have some fun!

I love your pics. You just look like an open and friendly person who likes to have a lot of fun!


Shelia said...

Hi pretty girl! Well, I see you all pretty and smiling and with a little accent talking slow and sassahying a little as you walk and asking me to come into your home and eat some of that dish you showed a few weeks ago! If you come to my house - I will feed you! I don't think my voice is high pitched, but being from Alabama/Texas, people say I have a southern accent. You're the sweetest little thing and thanks for the fun post. Have a wonderful Sunday and remember to be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Bridget said...

Hey there Little Sassy Miss, Please come by my blog and help us write "our story!" before you leave us for another week!

Raxx - A day in the life said...

I have been so busy checking out everyone's blog that I forgot to check back on mine!

Thanks for all the great comments! No wonder I'm hooked on blogland!

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Everyone pleas head over to Bridget's and add to the story!

It is sooo much fun!

Tootsie said...

This is funny! I think of them almost the same way....and you are right...many a time, I have taken my laptop to my greenhouse! I almost could live in that little room!

Hi! Just stopping by to see what you've been up to! I've been kind of sporadic with my blogging the last few weeks. I loved your post! I guess I am one of the shy ones that hide behind the curtain! LOL! I just detest pictures of myself! LOL! But, it is fun to put blogs with faces, and see if they match your perceptions of what you had imagined the person to be! Hope you have a great week....
~Rhonda :)

Lisa said...

But there is a picture of me in my blog! It is in a slide show from my trip to TN. The reason the picture I chose is just of my girls is becuase the blog is named after them and is 99% about them. Im not faceless, Im playing hide and seek!!

Shelia said...

Hey my little Sweetness! How are you today? Hope all is well in your beautiful world.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

SchmeckyGirl said...

LMAO!!! This was so fun to read. That's so funny that you picture us exactly a certain way when you think of us. Thank you for not picturing me 8-months pregnant all the time!

You cracked me up with a bunch of them, especially Buffie and Penny!

I too see you as an adorable, funny and spunky chick. You have a great smile and I picture that all the time.

Penny said...

Hey girl! Please come to my website to get your highly deserved award from yours truly. Hope you're having a great day!

Donna said...

Hey.... just popping in to say hello. "Hello".


Tismee2 said...

I just changed mine to a picture I took beside a picture my youngest son drew of me.
I always try to leave comments, I know how great it feels to know someone has bothered to stop and read about me.

Your picture is such a happy one too!

Bridget said...

Hey there, I hope you have a wonderful and restful weekend! how many more weeks of work for you?

Shelia said...

Hi Raxx! I've missed you! You've been a busy one, I'm sure. Thanks so much for stopping by on my first Pink Saturday! It's fun!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

I'm glad I found your blog from the link at tootsie's. I've been having fun catching up to all the people that I enjoyed on RMS. Seems like there has been a huge exodus from there to blogland. I'm glad I finally saw the light and came too! I know what you mean about the pictures giving you an insight to who are friends are....hmmm I guess mine just goes to show I really need a shave!
