…More Than Sweet Potatoes

Doesn’t That Just Totally Get Your Goat?


This is a thing.


My first #GoatSelfie – also, the first picture of my haircut after I donated my hair

Why, you may ask, is this a thing?

Because Aussa, Maurna, and I said so.

I wish I had a better understanding of how this started, but all I know for absolute fact is that when Maurna and I met and spent our day at a wildlife rescue facility, I was told that I should be taking a #GoatSelfie to send to Aussa.  Maurna had apparently already done so (please let me know if I am wrong) and she didn’t want me to feel left out.

She’s quite an incredible friend, by the way.

Such began the trend of #GoatSelfie.

There’s also a such thing as a #HalfASelfie #GoatSelfie

Things of note for the rest of this blog:

(1) Aussa is a fan of goats
(2) Aussa recently became betrothed to Alex
(3) Maurna and Leah came up with a brilliant idea
(4) I jumped on board and added my own little twist…

You can read about how this started on Leah’s Blog.

So what is happening, exactly?

We are overloading AuSex (Celebrity name of Aussa and Alex) with goats as engagement/wedding gifts.  There is an Amazon wish list that we’ve started.  It can be added to (email dfreedenberg1@gmail.com if you have links to Amazon items to be added to the wish list.)

See how much Aussa loves goats? #GoatSelfie

You.  Yes, YOU!  You can go onto the wish list and select any item(s) you’d like to have sent to AuSex for their engagement/wedding.

And now for my little twist…

...and it’s kind of a super secret

Ok, well it’s not a SECRET secret, but I don’t want to go into too much detail because while Aussa may have an inkling and have seen SOME information about it, I want it to be exciting and surprising.

So here’s what’s up:

You Mother Funkers need to speak up if you want to help me in my super secret super extra awesome thing.  You KNOW you’re intrigued.  Here’s what I’ll give you:  it’s awesome;  it’s for a good cause; it’s one-of-a-kind.  For more information you’ll have to contact me.  I need at LEAST 5 people to want to get on board.  🙂

Here’s how you can do that:

And please, for all that is adorable and perfect in the world, start taking #GoatSelfies


How many goats are YOU worth?

    I had no idea goat selfies were a thing! Also, thanks for linking to my blog. I need all the publicity I can get 😉

    Together, we shall get Aussa AT LEAST 100 goats 😉

      You and me both on the publicity front. This is going to be fabulous. I already love it.

    I am worth 6. A real bargain, why nobody has taken advantage of my marked-down self is beyond me!

    I would love to do the goatselfie challenge, but finding a goat may be an issue.

      It’s surprisingly hard to find goats around me as well. I keep looking. I need to take more wildlife animal selfies in general. I’d give your father 6 goats to keep you. For whatever that’s worth…

    I wonder how many goats I am worth… Okay, apparently 10 goats. I don’t know what the goat scale is so I cant tell if that is good or bad.

    And I also guess I accidentally started the goat selfie thing via Twitter. It seemed like the natural course of progression in my life.

    Beware, beware! I got a whiff of Debbie’s little “twist”, and all of a sudden, I got a catalog in my snail mail, for goats.

    Yes. Goats.

    And I will cease from ruining the Super Suprise more than I already have, so, I leave it at that.

    Oh… by the way, I couldn’t take the goat test… I’m already married! This December 12 will be 16 years married to @wavemistress a.k.a. Cimmorene.
