Housekeeping. You Want Me Fluff Your Pillow?

So I was thinking I maybe should have stretched that whole getting-fired-for-the-blog story into three days of material. Because, other than that, I don’t have much.

And now I just sit and wait and watch my stats because I’m freaking paranoid that I’m going to get in trouble. Even though I’m not even sure what kind of trouble I could even get in. Since I don’t WORK THERE ANYMORE.

But I had a Google search for “kristabella & slalom consulting” so I’m hoping that was my mom or someone thinking “what happens when you Google the two?” Because otherwise it would be weird. Seeing as slalom hasn’t been searched in quite some time on here.

Again, I don’t work there anymore. So whatever. Bring it on!


So have you guys heard about Secret Blogger Santa? Look to your right. On the sidebar. L Sass and RA are teaming up to do this really fun Secret Santa thing for bloggers. Click the button or the above link to find out more. You have to sign up by this Friday.

It’s gifts people. Who doesn’t like gifts?


Also, Katie told me about a blogger ornament exchange. So hey! More gifts! And more new bloggers to meet. It’s a win-win.

Although that would mean I would have to get a tree this year. And it sucks to carry that sappy mess up three-flights of stairs. I wonder if any of my friends that live near by would be willing to help? Anyone?


So the other day Zoot was talking about web hosting and what not. And it got me to thinking. Since I hope to someday rule the blogging world (not really), there is a possibility that I may want to have my site somewhere else. Or not have the .wordpress in the address. You know, like my own home.

(None of this is true. I just wonder about these things and try and pretend I’m all tech saavy and try to sound like I know what the hell I’m talking about, when in reality? I have no idea what I’m talking about.)

So I went online to register Early bird gets the worm and all that. But you know what? It turns out someone else has beat me to it. Some chick in Montana, apparently. And she’s got the .org and .net ones too. The worst part is that she isn’t using them. She’s been paying $10 a year or whatever on all those domains and NOT using them. Why would you do that? Why? Is this how things are done in Montana?

Supposedly I can backorder them, for like when they come up for renewal and she may decide that the REAL Kristabella should get to use her domain name, and like for reals use it. And in that case, they’ll try and nab it for me. It expires in August of next year. But seeing as she’s had this registered since 03? I don’t think she’s going anywhere.

Maybe I could bully her? She’d probably have a steep price. And since she’s in Montana, she’s probably all fit and strong and would hog-tie me to a tree or something.

So I’m wondering, what would a good alternative be? I could have Or Or Or Or I could have .tv or .biz or .us. But I have no idea. I just wish bitch in Montana would do something with her sites. Seriously. Oh, and hi girl in Montana! I’m just asking for one. You don’t need .com, .org AND .net. Am not picky. Either that or earn your damn $10 a month.

God, that’s like worse than someone who pays $64 a month for a gym membership and never actually goes to the gym.

Not that I know anyone like that.

So what would you pick if you were me?



  1. how about or or

  2. I vote for Because that’s awesome and way easier to spell than Kristabella. Or maybe I just can’t spell.

    I’ve been thinking of chaning my website address too. But I’d like to come up with a snazzier name. Momma K just sounds sooooo boring.

  3. would be cool…if not, just do–i read plenty of blogs that use (dot)us, and they seem to be doing fine.
    you totally don’t have to deal with a whole tree (and it’s lugginess) to enjoy an ornament exchange. just find fun places to hang random ornaments around your place. a favorite of mine is the hood thing-thing over the stove. or, you could hang one from from the fridge handle (you’d probably need some extra wire). but, you know. just stash them around wherever they fit. you don’t have to hassle with a tree, but you can still benefit from a little christmas cheer.
    longest, lamest comment of all time.
    sorry bout that.

  4. definitely! because that’s just too funny!

  5. I like too.



    Then mabe someday the both of you could do a swap.


  7. The snark one is funny.

    I can’t believe someone has the Kristabella domains…. SHE IS NOT YOU! This is not on!

    Now I’m thankful there isn’t another Alyndabear out there…. lucky.

  8. I go with the majority vote on Fullofsnark!

  9. You better go get before I do – but I’d only charge you wine. 😉 XXOO

    Thanks for the link to the ornament exchange.

  10. LOL

    Rich, you are too funny!

    fullofsnark is my other vote if the random guy thing doesnt happen!

  11. I’ve wondered the same thing because there is already lepetitchic.come (stupid catering business or something). I vote for finding the Montana girl and plying her with wine and maybe winning one of the domain games in a game of poker or arm wrestling. 🙂

  12. i vote for too!

  13. ha! Yes on snark, no on imakeoutyadayada and definitely not Reminds me too much of THE Ohio State.

    I think I googled that to see if anything would come up…What did come up was an article in a Consulting Mag w/your old CEOs picture. Blech.

  14. I like … it’s so punchy. 😉

    (I’m totally the pays money but doesn’t go to the gym person… and it is a monthly fight with my husband… It’s terrible. I know.)

  15. Yeah, I like myself. First choice for me. Kristabella makes you sound all frilly and girl, and come on. That’s just silly.

    Signed up for secret santa. Hope for your sake I don’t get you.

  16. fullofsnark does flow well…I’m actually surprised it’s available. Maybe I’ll go get it now and then make you pay me gazillions for it;)

  17. fullofsnark

    i agree that kristabella sounds too girly…like tu tus and pink elephants

    snark…now that is you!

  18. looks like its a landslide so far, but i vote for as well. having your own domain is pretty easy, and gives you way more control than these wordpress templates…and you have a lovely friend who is willing and able to make you up something really pretty 😉



    But I’m guessing you already registered fullofsnark since it’s snagged already and privacy protected. Unless it was that bitch in montana.

  20. Let’s go find this girl in Montana and “explain” to her that she needs to hand over the domain name immediately, she just won’t do it justice! As for the firing thing, I think it’s going to happen to me all the time, seriously, I work for the government, they can’t find me!!!!

  21. You should definitely challenge the girl who owns kristabella to a DANCE OFF. Solid gold, my friend, solid gold.
