About Me

You’ve reached the page of The Princess of All Things Sparkly and Queen of Beating a Dead Horse and Non-Sequiters. Need proof? See below. I even have a crown. Hopefully, one day I’ll have a sash and get to ride in parades. Until then, I’ll be blogging and crafting and practicing my beauty queen wave.

I don’t think you can ever have too many Christmas lights, shoes, and books-or sparkly things.

A few of my favorite things:

Books: American Gods, Annie Freeman’s Fabulous Traveling Funeral, Shopgirl, Dandelion Wine

Songs: Streisand’s Don’t Rain on My Parade or Kool & the Gang’s Get Down on It.

Movies: Chasing Amy, Sense & Sensibility, Shakespeare in Love, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Color: Sparkly

TV Shows: Moonlighting, Gossip Girl, Lost, America’s Next Top Model, Glee

Music: Indigo Girls, Liz Phair, The Pogues, Florence + the Machine, bad booty music and show tunes

Things I utterly dislike: revolving doors, sparkling water, talking on the phone, and heart-shaped anything.

    Just wanted to tell you that I have really enjoyed going through your blog! I have often thoguht about it myself, but just enjoy others’ thoughts-because mine would be too wine-infused to make me proud in the morning! Love it! You are truly hilarious. Maybe you could clue me in on it. I am also hopelessly technologically decrepit 😦

      Thanks Jenny! I’m glad you enjoy it. I use wordpress for mine and bought my domain and everything from them. It’s super, super easy. You can play a lot with themes and pictures. I had my sister design my header but you can upload pictures to use also. Let me know if you want any questions answered. Seriously, if I can make it work-you totally can.

    @ your tweet:
    Your blog is on the WordPress’ home page 😉 That’s how I came to know of it.

      Thanks! I can’t figure out why/how it’s on the wordpress page?

    Just landed here having recently signed up with WordPress after fleeing the dying Windows Spaces. So glad Florence and the Machine have caught your attention! Brill band.

    Hey Amy – congrats on the wordpress feature! I’m glad I saw it – your blog is hilarious! And I had to write since you mentioned Shopgirl (LOVE Steve Martin), Chasing Amy, a song from Funny Girl and Moonlighting — love them all. I just started a blog and am inspired to see how great yours is! If you want to check it out: I’d welcome any feedback. Great stuff – I’ll check back often!

    love your writing! You should totally write a book 🙂 I’ll be the first to buy it…if it comes to India that is 🙂
    Man, I need to seriously work on my blog!!!!!

    • amyblam permalink*
      June 27, 2010 11:12 AM

      I would LURVEEE to write a book-I just need to find someone to publish it!

      • Nina J permalink
        July 1, 2010 3:57 AM

        Ah yes….your the lazy one who does not want to do the self publishing thing (read- not meant to be rude). In that case, write the book anyway, and email it to me 🙂 like an ebook thing..then I will have a wonderful evening laughing and enjoying…Coz I’m seriously bored with the book choices lately.

      • amyblam permalink*
        July 1, 2010 10:51 PM

        I should just do a book and email it out-that wouldn’t be hard. 🙂 Have you read Allison Winn Scotch, Jenn Lancaster or Sloane Crosley? I like all of them. Laurie Notaro too. Heather McDonald and Chelsea Handler both have really funny books.

  15. June 21, 2010 10:09 PM

    I think I have just fallen in love! You rock at what you do. I will be continuing to follow and read your stuff. maybe you can help me figure this word press stuff out!

    Hi Amy-
    I just started blogging, I have no clue what I am doing but I am having fun. I read about your blog on another blog as I am totally being sucked into this blog world (that I never knew existed). I am glad I checked it out, I learned more in 10 minutes on your page than in the last week on hundreds….so thanks!!!
    Kris 🙂

      That’s awesome, thank you! I’ll be sure to check out your site!

  18. July 25, 2010 9:20 AM

    Hey Amy,
    I’m a long time lurker, first time commenter. I noticed that you finally have an html textarea box under your button, how did you do it????

    It didn’t work when I put my badge and code in a textarea box on my site. I contacted WordPress and they said that the “textarea” and “iframe” codes are strickly prohibited for security reasons. Are you allowed to use textarea now? I’m just wondering because you got the code to work.

    I would LOVE to finally just put the badge code on my sidebar. Thanks.

      July 29, 2010 5:28 PM

      Thanks for lurking…and commenting. I think y ou saw where I posted about how I don’t know how to make it work, so the lovely Shell at Not Quite Susie Homemaker did it for me.

  19. July 26, 2010 4:21 PM

    Oh MAN! Moonlighting? I haven’t watched that in so long! Now i am going to have to Netflicks it or something.

    I like the I am a bitch but not rude. I’d like to think I’m the same.

    I’m just sad that we can never share a glass of sparkling water.

    • amyblam permalink*
      July 29, 2010 5:28 PM

      It’s probably why I like ya…we can have champagne. I like OTHER drinks with bubbles.

  20. July 31, 2010 5:12 PM

    Oh my goodness lady, I’m so glad we met via Lady Bloggers Society. Thank you SO much for adding me to your blog list. I’ll be doing the same of you. How could i not?

    Moonlighting? Loved that show.
    Chasing Amy? great flick. i’m a fan of kevin smith’s films in general and saw Clerks in his hometown when it first came out.

    And as for being a bitch? You know I support that. Especially if you’re a saucy one!

  21. September 29, 2010 8:38 AM

    Color: Sparkly

    You are so lovable 🙂 Also, I totally agree. I hate anything heart-shaped (ESPECIALLY JEWELRY!!!) and am very glad to hear I’m not alone.

    Also, from what I’ve read here, I don’t think you’re a bitch at all 🙂

  26. March 28, 2011 9:49 PM
