We Are Our Own Country Now

My husband (the Geographer) informed me yesterday that this blog now has more followers than at least 3 sovereign countries have inhabitants. I believe that makes us our own country now y’all! Welcome to ContraryLand!

A few things about our country…

National Bird: Blue Footed Booby (Haha…. booby…..)

National Song: Lazy Sunday
( http://www.hulu.com/watch/1397 )

National Motto: LOL

National Animal (large): Nessie (The Loch Ness monster, but don’t let “monster” fool you, she’s actually very gentle and gives great advice on how to prepare fish.)

National Animal (small): Chupacabra  (Hide your goats!)

National Insect: Jiminy Cricket (He can be annoying but he keeps us honest.)

Feel free to share your facts about our totally awesome (and entirely made-up) country! And thank you all so very much for subscribing/following this blog –  it makes my heart fit to burst. :)

  1. As an alternate suggestion for a motto, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happy Hour,” from the Rosieland episode of M*A*S*H.

    • Such a good one! Way better than what I thought up. I knew I should have consulted you!

  2. I probably have enough followers for a tiny little hick town in the middle of nowhere where everybody hunts moose, but maybe not. Congrats!

    • Sounds like a great place to cozy up next to the fire with some hot chocolate and a good book. :)

  3. It’s very fitting that I have become an inhabitant of ContraryLand. My husband would certainly agree. ;)

  4. Heheh congrats! Just found your blog. So interesting! Hope you will follow back too :)

    • Lazy Sunday but open to suggestions. It’s a sort of listen to what you like kind of place. :)

  5. I love this, but I noticed we don’t have a national food. Maybe it could be chocolate…or tacos.

  6. Greetings from Viviennedia!

    National Bird: Hummingbird

    National Song: St. Christopher Is Coming Home (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDbjkaokPP8&index=11&list=PL4SoXDpRG97yHgJAIAIAYtj3bvbpcT0dv)

    National Motto: I Have a Wonderful Bad Idea

    National Animal (large): Giant Squid! (he prefers “plus-sized cephalopod”)

    National Animal (small): Pangolin (“artichoke” jokes not appreciated)

    National Insect: Monarch Butterfly (actually a democratic socialist, but does enjoy crowns for aesthetic reasons)

  7. I don’t have my own country yet, but when I do, it will be illegal to wear pajamas and slippers in public places. Offenders will be stoned with potatoes. Just because.
