Declaring Orphan Sock Blog Week! July 14-21

My friend Susan Kirkland and I were IMing discussing orphan socks—you know the ones who have lost their mates? We thought it would be really funny to get our friends to post pictures of the lost-buddy socks on our blogs, and see if we could find matches.

So by the power invested in us by the chaotic authority of the Internet, we declare July 14-21 Orphan Sock Blog Week. To participate, dedicate at least one post that week to a picture or pictures of socks that have tragically lost their partners to the dryer, frisky pets or absent-minded kids (or spouses).

If you want to participate in sockblog sharing, send me your blog's website addy and I'll post it on the 14th. Then we can visit each other's blogs and search for our socks!

More possible fun for Orphan Sock Blog Week:

--Top 10 reasons why socks get lost
--Creative uses for lost socks
--Lost Sock story
--Sock jokes (I was about to say sock-sock jokes, but that's counter to the theme)

Funny idea. For my contribution, I refer you to the song "Sock Heaven," by Steve Taylor (from the album SQUINT).

Karina, I have an add for your 'orphan sock' on my blog.

Check it out, I hope you like it.

I checked--nope, not it, Sharon. Ah, well.

My son got into the spirit of the week and made a craft with an old sock.

Thanks for the ideas for the graveyard of sock singles in a bottom drawer we have.
