There are so many of you who LURVE Indiana. Indianapolis specifically.

Um, why?

Just asking, there just seems to be an awful lot of you LURKERS from Indianapolis that made yourself known when Jennifer announced she was going Hoosier.


Most of my Indiana friends are transplanted Utahns.

And none of us really dig the Indy so much.

But back to Jennifer.


If you don’t read Playgroups are no Place for Children you’re stuck in the dark ages.

I am going to dig my claws in this girl and claim her in the name of Hoosier Velveteen Shake-Shake Oblivion.

Sorry to you who are losing her.

Really, I am.


Heh, so I’m not that sorry.

Jennifer, see you in Indiana baby.


  1. I moved to Indy about 4 years ago, and I’ve actually grown to like it. We should hang out some time. I got a little girl who I know would like to play with your little girl.

    And my husband just finished grad school….sucked 2.5 years. Know the feeling. We could bitch together. Could be fun.

    And your right, nobody here in Indy knows how to blog. And no, I refuse to teach them.

  2. I’m only one state over in Ohio. We visit Indianapolis once or twice a year, and we drive through it on our way to Chicago at least once a year, too. Columbus is only three hours away.

    I’m thrilled Jennifer is moving closer. It’s nice to have bloggers in the Indiana-Ohio region, because there aren’t enough of us.

  3. Holla.

    I always wanted to say that. 🙂

    I am a NW Indiana blogger. We don’t frequent Indy too much, well because Chicago is more in our backyard. Along with the murder capital of the world or is it universe. Anyway, I love reading your blog and knowing you aren’t THAT far from me.

  4. Yep… I’m one of those lurkers who came out of nowhere. I’ve been a Hoosier all my life, and I don’t have any complaints.

    I’m not going to pretend that I can blog, but I sure can waste away a morning with the best of them.

    Apparently I need more friends so that I’ll spend less time on this darn computer.

  5. Sorry you feel there are too many Indiana lurkers…I just never had anything insightful to add. But ask me a direct question, oh, that I can answer enough to make you wish you never had!

    My love of Indy is influnced partly by growing up in Dallas. I love summers/fall here. I love when it gets hot, just wait a day or two and we’ll have a cool front come down and cool off. I love that we get snow–but not the ENTIRE winter. I don’t like how long spring takes to come. I did live in the country (hour north of Indy) for about 10 years, and didn’t move to Indianapolis until 2 years ago. I LOVE June in the country…the things I love about it don’t really happen as much in the city.

    As for the city, not just the state, I like how Indy is a “small” city, not as much traffic, clean, with lots of things to do downtown. I like how friendly people are. There are an interesting mix of people here. Not everyone is backwards. Really. If that’s all your meeting, you really need to get to other parts of town! 🙂

  6. Fun, I hope you two really hit it off. I don’t have any bloggy friends in real life. I mean, bloggy friends that I met while blogging instead of meeting in real life and then coersing them into blogging too.

    Indy has to be better than Tiny Town????

  7. I am jealous too…And I never even HAD her to begin with!!!


  8. Still flicking you the bird!

  9. I’m like Tina, and don’t ever feel like I have any comment worth reading. Your blog would kick my blog’s ass anyday, too, so I never want to post it. Ha ha! I have MUCH more fun reading all about you cool chicks’ lives, and pretending to be one of your friends. 😀 I AM a simple Indiana girl, though, so if you ever ARE bored, or in need of someone to hang out with….ya know.

  10. *lol* I told you months ago (well, two months..but when I was first blogging) that I’m in Indy!!! I’m no lurker *lol*

    Maybe we should have a blogger meetup sometime at one of the local parks once the weather warms up!! *lol* There ARE so many!! *lol*

  11. I cam to Indy one year ago. Hubbies work. which has him away from home very long hours. I’d love to meet more blogging mommies.

  12. Am I going to be one of the few that admits to being stuck in the dark ages?

  13. I’m so jealous of her and I don’t even know her. I wish I was moving to Indy then we could be friends….stupid missouri…

  14. I can’t really call myself a lurker, cause I just found your blog a couple days ago. I’m here in Indiana too, about 3 hours north, but I’m down in your neck of the woods every once in awhile.
    Indy’s better than where I am. If you don’t believe me, come up and visit sometime. See the Golden Dome.

  15. My company HQ is in Indy, so I have every opportunity to move there. But…naaah.

  16. Yes, I’m one of those Utah transplants but I really do love Indianapolis. I like that there are a lot of family oriented places to visit and activities to do. I like that there is one giant belt route around the city. I like that it’s not too big and it’s not too small. The place is crazy about “fests” which is a huge plus. Perhaps it is because I’ve lived in a crappy Eurpoean city that smelled of coal and armpit that I see Indianapolis through rose-colored glasses but I love it.

  17. Yep, I’m primarily a lurker…in Indianapolis no less. But I’m an Arkansas transplant. Who only reads a few select blogs and didn’t know about Jennifer’s. I will add it to my list and check her out.

    And yep, my blog is boooring. But it amuses me when I need a distraction.

    Do I LURVE Indy? Hmmm…I don’t hate it. But, um, don’t ask me when I’m digging my car out of the snow.

  18. Native Hoosier here! I’m not a super-duper Indy fan, but I’m not ashamed of it either. I’ve only lived in one other place (Ft. Bragg, NC) and I’d pick Indy over it any day.
    I am beyond surprised that there are so many other bloggers in Indy. We definitely need to have a get-together sometime! Thanks for pulling out all the Hoosier-Lurkers. 🙂

  19. Ahh, thanks for a whole post devoted to ME! And I must say, that many of these silly lurkers didn’t bother to come and give me a good ol’ Indiana welcome. Shunned already and I haven’t even moved yet.
