Hi, my name is Abby

TJ was watching 'Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein' yesterday as I was in the sitting room working on my book. Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) had just reanimated the monster (Peter Boyle) and it was obvious something was amiss. He asked Igor (Marty Feldman) about the brain he had retrieved. He said it was from someone named 'Abby'. Yes, Abby Normal.

Somewhere in this mess stowed in drawers, boxes, and closets, is a sticker which says, "Normal People Scare Me."

The more I read blogs, the more I realize that the Abby's are taking over the world. I am sure, somewhere, right now, there is a twelve step program for us. Someone is at this very moment standing in front of a crowded room saying, "Hi, my name is Ron and I am an Abby."

Welcome to the World Weird Web. Here, we clean out our closets publicly. We air our laundry for the world to see. We show our bumps and lumps. We talk about our mental surgery scars. We talk about our kids problems. We expose our secrets. We, proudly show off our Abby-ness.

Hey, you there .. you look like an Abby to me.

Relish your Abby-ness. Embrace it. Extoll it. Laud it.

Hi, My name is Abby.

This post is in no way intended to make light of any other 12 step program or belittle anyone involved in such a program. (So, CHILL !!)

That Retro Girl comment is hilarious.

So are you, ABBY! :)

I will take a look around for the pic you requested. You said a "good" one, that might be tricky. We are for some reason always UNphotogenic together. I'll see what I can do :)

I'm stuck thinking about how boring it would be if we all weren't so weird. What would be the purpose?
