Once upon a time in a Blogoshere near here,
I, Lizzie, keeper of the light ..or shedder of the light, or
I was trolling the blogs looking for fun and adventure.
For people to hang with and good stuff to read.
It was a weekend and I happened to find an interesting little blog challenge about not being a narcissist. I delightedly read some comments and thought
from whence did this challenge come?
(ok I am trying to do this in Epic Tale voice so just go with it k? I really don’t have a clue how to do it so I am kind of winging it but its important for my friend. It;s her birthday today did I tell you? Oh wait sorry we will get to that… thanks much for your patience. )
So I seeked out ..er sought forth.. I clicked on the link ..and I was taken to another planet. A blog called Hobbling Around and the blogger (ess?) was The Hobbler. Da na na na! <—-think dramatic intro music here please.
Anyways.. long story even longer cause that’s what an EPIC TALE (again dramatic music) is. I mean right?
I chatted her up – I exuberated all over her blog, (not very Jedi I know but I had not yet realized the possibilities here) and lo and who da thunk..she liked me! And I liked her. (I already knew I liked her, I wanted her to like me back.)
How could you not? This amazing woman is a cripple in a wheelchair (don’t get all huffy about not being PC – she likes it that way trust me!) but I am here to tell you this woman, this wonderful amazing woman.. are you ready for this?
She can FLY! she can go anywhere she wants and says what she feels.. and she pretty much says it like it is.
We both have insomnia and more nights than I can count..or remember actually I could probably count them if I remembered how many but the point is..when I couldn’t sleep and wanted to talk..she was there. Here. Whatever she is everywhere anyways.
There is something about the person you talk to in the wee hours of the morning.. you tell them things and they tell you things and before you know it.. you are friends and I feel like I have known her forever..since the galaxy began.. (sorry gotta keep with the theme of the EPIC TALE)
Ok here’s where it gets even better. So one day I go on Twitter and there she is declaring to all that she has gone to the dark side. (DA A NA NA! <—-you know what to do right?
The force is strong in this one folks and to have her not in the light is a loss for the good…
I immediately rallied to try to win her back..but alas she became Darth Hobbler.. and I ObiLizzieCrackedNobi. could not bring her back. It was a valiant effort but she was determined and strong and stubborn as all get out too….But I still liked her. I mean cause really I love her.
She is an over analyizer, which I oh so get. She even holds OAA meetings once a week on her blog and they are ridiculously funny.
She loves kittens and hates June Bugs.
She was persuasive trying to win me over to the Dark Side. She even, get this, promised me a Donut Hole Franchise.
She took over blogs, and created Flash mobs. And I began to think there isn’t anything so bad about being evil with Darth Hobbler. Yes, she is that persuasive. And through it all, the back and forth about the light side and the dark side, she still was always my friend. Always wiling to lend an ear, always supportive of everyone, of me.
Yesterday, she made me, ObiLizzieCrackedNobi, her latest porn star.
How cool is that?
One night late into the night I asked her
Hobbsy real deal right now if you choose being a villainess or a heroine, which would it be?”
She chose villianess. I asked her what her powers would be and who would be the heroine she would be pitted against.
She said she would be able to steal all the emotions so nobody had to care anymore and it would have to be somebody that could get them all back. Somebody who was good.
See the thing about Hobbler, she cares a whole heck of a lot. Sometimes to the point of being painful for her. She loves her friends, she cares about what happens to each and every one of us. But its easier to be evil, (more fun too) and for the amount of love and care and friendship this amazing woman gives, if she wants to be on the Dark Side, I have finally decided, she can do what ever she wants.
She may be my archnemisis. Pitting light against dark but…
at the end of the day when we have put our toys away and brushed out teeth and gotten tucked into bed…
Dark Side, Light Side when it comes to The Hobbler..
I’m on her side!
Happy Birthday To My Dear Friend The Hobbler, I love you Hobbsy and thank you for all that you are, all that you do and for being the best Evil Villianess Ever to Roll on Wheels. Or Walk for that matter. The Best Ever to do anything.
And so ends out EPIC TALE..until tomorrow anyways when we see what Darth Hobbler will do next to convince ObiLizzieCrackedNobi to come over to the Dark Side…..
(the suspense is killing me I gotta tell you)
