Your Call Is Very Important to Us

Dear #1 Tangobaby Reader,

Due to the higher than normal volume of comments recently (to which all of us here at Tangobaby World Media, Inc. are very, very appreciative), our normal standard of replying to each and every comment is becoming a wee bit difficult.

We apologize for the disruption in service and would like you to take a moment to give us your opinion on the matter. All of us here at Tangobaby World Media, Inc. thank you for your time.


All of us

ps.: Yes, this is also an excuse to use polldaddy.com's free widgets, since I obviously can't go around making election campaign buttons anymore. *sigh* I miss being on the campaign trail.

Would Dorothy trouble her head about such nonsense? I think not! We all just do the best we can with the time we have! xoxox

tangobaby December 30, 2008 at 3:59 PM  

lmao! No, Dorothy would get a cocktail and not feel guilty. ha ha.

You make me smile, lady.


ps. I do like polls, though.

marilyn! LOL I have no idea either, are we supposed to answer comments. If so, I've been terribly r-u-d-e. when I was on myspace it was very clear that you were supposed to answer comments. Guess I better get on the stick then. LOL

the poll was very cute. did you know that one of my favorite funny quotes was by Dorothy? "You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think."

I love a poll with realistic answers to chose from! Maybe it is the cocktail I just had - but really all we can do is our best. If people don't leave a comment because of this then - there is one less comment to worry about! Just keeping it real......

Thanks for the links to your buttons, I laughed so hard that I still have tears in my eyes. That was a great idea! I can see how you miss it...sigh...and I missed it all. Still playing catch-up on the older postings.

Dear TangB.
I've actually been thinking much about this topic for the past three months, as I don't have much time to be on the computer. I've decided not to allow myself to feel guilty or overwhelmed. If I can't keep up with things bloggy, I give myself permission to let things slide.

FYI If I don't hear from the Tangobaby for awhile, I figure she's obviously out in a fabulous dress dancing the night away (in her best pair of black fishnets)!

Happy Dancing and Happy Everything in 2009 friend!

May all your dreams come true!

May all your California dreams come true.
I love the angles you use, and I really like the black and white photos. They create a certain moodiness without beating you over the head with it.

You make me want to start taking photos, of course I don't have any talent for it, but I can get a vicarious rush from yours.
Thanks for the note.

Happy New Year, Tom

Okay, I really loved voting. It was so prompt and attentive. I wish I could get everything in my life to work so well.

don't feel bad...sometimes I Reply All...sometimes I don't. Depends on how I feel :)

since we're all quoting dorothy (tho' i had a ruby slipper moment before realizing WHICH dorothy):

"four be the things i am wiser to know.
idleness, sorrow, a friend and a foe.

four be the things i'd be better without.
love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.

three be thet hings i shall never attain:
envy, content and sufficient champagne.

three be the things i shall have 'til i die.
laughter and hope and a sock in the eye."

happy new year.

oh dear...you crack me up...
regards this matter, i do my best to be a good blogging soldier and try to answer all the comments but i understand it can be tricky

great poll !!

Leslie December 31, 2008 at 6:49 PM  

I've only now discovered your fun blog. I vote that you do the best you can, which is what I do. And I try never to return nice comments when enjoying a raspberry martini! Happy New Year and thanks for all the frivolity, fun and laughter!

Relyn December 31, 2008 at 8:25 PM  

OK, here's a question. I don't respond in my own comments section because I never check back on comments I write. But, I do try to visit each commenter and say hello. Which is preferred? Is there really a blogging etiquette on this one? Just do your best. As you grow ever more famous....

Anonymous December 31, 2008 at 10:38 PM  

hope you went and got that dorothy cocktail i was reading about before i just decided to scroll to the bottom...

at this point there are so many comments i've ditched reading them all to see what you had to say to someone elses comment or mine. i just love reading your blog and sensing your character through the blog pages which is so evident and well-expressed.
