*EMERGENCY ALERT*

This may not apply to you.....
please don't send me any more testimonials on the YOU.KNOW.WHAT super absorbent pieces of crap that Vince sells.

My site meter is off the charts. I guess what I really mean is Thank you dlisted.com, because as of 11:30 this morning ....well, I can only check the last hundred hits but quite a few, if not most are for YOU.KNOW WHAT...linked from dlisted.com.




I will say I'm pleased that some people are actually reading more that my humble testimonial, and reading other posts. I must also say that there are some bloggers out there that are a little green around the gills. Hey, I'm trying to be a good consumer by giving testimonials on products that I like and dislike.

So just be forewarned that if you do a testimonial on anything Vince pitches, or Debbie Meyer, or God forbid Billy Mays....watch out. I'm talking to you Green Bag advocate!


*If you came here via dlisted pull up a chair and stay a while. You can join my aqua aerobics here at the compound, meet JJ the wonder dog, or the Women Yearning For Zion. A real bonus is the hilarious Grandma Joy on YouTube.

I got here from Dlisted.com. He's got your review linked!

Grandma J said...

Thank you, lynne. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know. I guess I should be glad Dlist.com is recommending my testimonial and doesn't have me listed as "Slut of The Day". Geesh!

My favorite part of the commercial is when he says, "Are you with me Camera guy?" I wish someone would review the Buxton Bag for me.

Katrine said...

I just found some reviews on amazon for the buxton bag. I won't be buying that!

Grandma J said...

Katrine, you make better stuff than Buxton! I'm glad you decided against it

Karen said...

Woo Hoo! At least they aren't coming from Google, but linking from another blog. I think it's funny and hey, maybe good exposure. No?

Rebeckah said...

I bought the green bags...they work pretty good. It makes the bananas look like they are not ripe...but they taste like they have been sitting in a bag for 10 days...blech! Infomercial products usually stink...they good, but you lose in the end!

Nice job on all the hits...you are so popular! Just remember my humble blog when you get more famous than you already are...

Grandma J... I have been out of the loop for a week or so. What's going on?

GrandmaJ,
I found your site through d-listed this morning and am TOTALLY bored at work. I have to say I just finished reading your WHOLE entire blog! I think you are very clever. I'm 26 BTW and have some of the same thoughts! Keep it up and I'll be checking back regularly-Nick

Jason said...

Umm, Grandma J, your first name isn't Joy, right?

I also thought for a minute there that you were being called the "slut of the day."

Grandma J said...

Jason, no, I'm not Joy...although I'm extremely jealous of her movie reviews. I love her YouTubes! They make my movie reviews suck big time.

I thought Michael at dlisted.com was calling me the "slut of the day" too...but no, he just gave my shamwow testimonial a plug. I emailed him to say thanks. I wonder if he noticed that I was a BlogHussy!

Don't worry Jason, I still heart you!

Pumpkin Delight said...

Wow! I am totally impressed. You have hit the big time I think. You will soon be one of those bloggers who gets hundreds of comments and can't bother to read any of them. Don't forget us little folks.

PS: I'm secretly hoping they will head my way with your link to me. :)

Hi Grandma J

Yes, I confess I found you through Dlisted. Like you, I'm in Central Texas, although in my case I moved from the United Kingdom.

I had suspected that Shamwows might suck (heh). Great blog!

Look at you, becoming somewhat of a celebrity, are you? Getting famous!!
Just remember I am a loyal fan that keeps coming back for my dose of Gramma J.

Grandma J said...

Pumpkin, Jason and Pleasing Procrastinator. I love you guys.
You are the ones over there on my BlogHus List.
It just happens that Michael K. at dlisted.com linked my shamwow post to his blog.
I did email him to thank him, and he emailed back!
So there ya go, Grandma J got her "high traffic" Saturday. :))

CGS said...

I'm glad Pumpkin Delight said that about hoping to get more visitors from your site. That's how I feel too! Of course, I know as precious as we feel Coop is, he really can't compare to your wit and crazy adventures! Probably a whole different audience - one who doesn't watch as many infomericals. =) Meghann

I got here from DListed too...love him and happy I have a new blog to read now. But, have you tried using the Shamwows wet since a lot of readers said it has to be wet to dry? I was wondering if your opinion of it changed from all the comments you got on it.

I was never impressed with the Shamwows, I buy cheap paper towels now since I go thru them like crazy to wipe things down...but I was about to cave and buy the Green Bags, but I just can't help but think that the gas that the bag is supposedly "absorbing" can't be good for the fruit either way...things need to breathe in some way, so that's what stops me, but the concept is nice.

Anyway, nice to meet you...I like your blog.

Here's what I want to know....

1. Why is he wearing a headset?

2. Why was Vince picked for this ad campaign?

3. Why am I getting flashbacks to Faces of Meth?

Grandma J said...

Hey Stephanie, I agree, Vince is scarey as all get out.

We are almost neighbors (you and I, not vince). I'm in the town just east of you.
