So I mentioned earlier that I had a new blog to introduce to you. A blog unlike any I've come across. Mommy blogs are a dime a dozen (or rather a dime A THOUSAND), and every time I turn around I seem to bump into another. freakin'. review. blog.
This blog, this blog is different.
And what this mysterious industry with universal appeal? Or at least univeral applicability? The funeral industy.
Yeah, you read that right. The funeral industry.
And who's the blogger? Well that'd be my younger sister, Lynette. The one who likes to leave ridiculously long comments on my blog- that is, when she actually takes time out of her busy reality-TV-watching-People-magazine-reading schedule. And when she's not practicing these other noble pursuits, she's busy studying to be a funeral director and embalmer.
A twenty-seven year old girl (whatever, she's my little sis, she'll always be a "girl" to me) choosing a job in the funeral industry? To work with dead people? Why yes, THAT IS WEIRD. Don't worry, we've all had our "Are you serious?" moments. She'd had to explain and defend her decision to E.V.E.R.Y.O.N.E. So what's a girl to do?
START A BLOG, of course!
What's more, *whispers* it's actually pretty good. It's surprisingly interesting and her writing is quite clever and fun to read. Lyn was never all that, um, academically inclined... however we aaaare related, so it shouldn't come as toooooo big a surprise... seeing as I'm pretty seriously fabulous. Can I get an "amen" to that?
Hello? *tap, tap* Is this thing on??
So head on over to My Life with the Dead List and give my little sis a big bloggy welcome. As long as she refrains from using terms like "srsly" and "prolly" and doesn't start
blabbing blogging about pop culture or other nonesense, I think she has a lot of potential. Pretty sure she has the market cornered on studying-to-be-a-funeral-director/embalmer-blogs.
If nothing else, check it out for the beauuuuuutiful blog design... and help me bully her into using capital letters. CAPS ARE YOUR FRIENDS, LYNETTE.
YES, I AM SHOUTING.
