This was the email I received from my God Mother, Ginger. (Of course I have to narrate in italics. I hope it translates well.)

Oh my, Just visited your blogspot and what a long way we have come from the day I held you in my arms in your baptismal gown and promised your Grandma Anderson that you would have a Christian upbringing to becoming aware that you now have a stripper name. (oh shame-even though we both know my German Grandma would proud as kuchen (get it proud as pie, proud as kuchen?)) Ha! Mine would be Louie Arch. Doesn't work. But neither does this body. (I'm thinking maybe she should give it a try..."Louie Arch your back around that pole!" Besides she is one smoking hot God Mama!) I'm loving your blog. Hey, could Nate A be Aman? He was a cutie. (OMGosh! I CAN NOT BELIEVE she guessed it! AND if anyone forwards this blog to him I will hurt you!) And that is the best REO Speedwagon song. (Again she is so cool!) Keep blogging. I'll be watching. (mental note made) You are such a special lady. (She is the BEST!) Love you lots, Ginger (Right back atcha-I love you too!)
Ok, so seriously... Now is the part where I get kinda sappy (if you are a cryer get Kleenex now).
I am so lucky! I have the greatest, kindest, most supportive, and fun family! This is the stuff that really matters in life-ya know? These people have all made me the person that I am today (I got all the naughty stuff from my two cousins Kimberli and Roni) like it or not. Ginger and Dick my God parents are two of the coolest cats you will ever meet-been friends with my folks since their days as Golden Eagles. It just doesn't get any better than that! Thanks again Ginger for EVERYTHING you have done for me-I love you!
Fine then... sinner and saint bloggers alike. See you tomorrow for my first MOM joke.
