Kool Kidz Klub Members Announced!

It took me forever to make this measly little button, and for awhile I was afraid it wasn’t going to be finished in time for BBAW.  I’m just not good at this stuff–maybe I should buy photoshop or something similar.  Do any of you have photoshop?  If so, is it user friendly?  Is it made for people with single digit IQ’s, like me?

Older daughter’s boyfriend calls it the KKK button, but believe me, that was not my intention!  It is rather elitist, though, and it’s also a plug for my humble website.  I’m nothing if not a snob and an opportunist!

I created this to show my favorite bloggers how much I appreciate them.  A long time ago, I told Devourer in the comments section of one of my posts that she was one of the Kool Kids of the blogosphere, and the idea stuck with me.  So, I’m inviting the following bloggers to become members of my Klub because WE TOTALLY ROCK!  You can display this button proudly on your websites if you so desire.  If you’re too sophisticated to participate, I’ll forgive you…eventually.

Without further ado, here are the invitees to this prestigious Klub:

Andi — AndiLit
Bybee — Naked Without Books
Care — Care’s Book Club
Chris — Stuff as Dreams are Made On
Devourer — Devourer of Books
Dewey — The Hidden Side of a Leaf

Shannon — Books Worth Reading
Steph — The Kea

Trish — Hey Lady, Whatcha Readin’?

Now, if I’ve left anyone out, or if you’d like to join the Klub, feel free to display the button on your site.  You can send it to your blogging friends.  I may be an elitist snob, but I’m also generous.  The more, the merrier!

  14. Does that mean this is our theme song:

    I’m too cool for my dress
    These shades don’t leave my head
    Everything you say is so irrelevant
    You follow and I lead
    You want to be like me
    But your just a wannabe
    love it or hate it

    I can’t help the way I am
    Hope you don’t misunderstand

    Cause I’m too cool
    Yeah I’m too cool
    To know you
    Don’t take it personal
    Don’t get emotional
    You know it’s the truth
    I’m too cool for you
    You think your hot but I’m sorry, you’re not
    Exactly who you think you are
    Can’t tell you what you haven’t got
    When we walk into the room
    I’m too cool for you

    Lucky I’m so nice
    Even I’m surprised
    You are still allowed to be in my crew
    Show you how it’s done
    If you want to be someone
    Just watch me and you’ll learn some

    Me, myself, and I agree
    You’ll never catch up with me

    Cause I’m too cool
    Yeah I’m too cool
    To know you
    Don’t take it personal
    Don’t get emotional
    You know it’s the truth
    I’m too cool for you
    You think your hot but I’m sorry, you’re not
    Exactly who you think you are
    Can’t tell you what you haven’t got
    When we walk into the room
    I’m too cool for you

    You see I’m all beauty, brains, and talents
    I got it all
    Well others have to try all their lives
    Still they never get the call
    That’s the difference between you and me
    Obviously
    I’m a natural
    I’m the real deal

    I can’t help the way I am
    Hope you don’t misunderstand

    But I’m too cool
    Yeah I’m too cool
    To know you
    Don’t take it personal
    Don’t get emotional
    You know it’s the truth
    I’m too cool for you

    Too cool
    Yeah I’m too cool
    To know you
    Don’t take it personal
    Don’t get emotional
    You know it’s the truth
    I’m too cool for you

    😉

  15. No way! I’m in the cool kids club for the first time ever!! lol….thanks Chartroose, you rock 😉

  16. My copy of A Handful of Dust arrived today – thanks so much! I’ll be sure to let you know what I think, and whether or not I’ve been fully indoctrinated. 🙂

  17. Squee!!! I’m so excited. 😀 I shall totally display the button my sidebar. As soon as I find time to do an update!

  18. […] that cool cat Chartroose has named me a member of the Kool Kidz Klub! Hehe: how fun is that? The button is hilarious. And the best part is, she’s not exclusive, […]

  19. very cool button – we all look so tough! Thank you kindly, lady, pretty exciting to be invited into the cool kids!

  20. Only you would come up with the KKK club! 🙂

    I will be adding the button to my site! Thanks so much. I always thought I was cool and now I can show my six year old that I really am!

  21. BTW, I am a photoshop user. Photoshop Elements is a cheaper (around $70) than full fledged Photoshop and easier version of to learn. Check out http://www.photoshopessentials.com/ for tutorials.

  22. Oh, this is so kool! And you’re definitely kool for coming up with such an excellent concept. I hereby declare that I am retroactively applying this to those all those years growing up when I was decidedly un-kool. As I always like to say: better late than never! … and they thought they could keep me out. Ha! Thank you so much Chartroose!

  23. Hooray, the Klub is now official! Thanks, Stephanie, for the photoshop info. It’s something I really need to purchase since I’m always messing around with pictures.

    Jill, that is the koolest theme song ever! I’m not a big Disney fan, but this is so bitchy–I love it! Also, you can be the Klub cheerleader because you’re the cute one.

    Thanks, everyone!

  24. I’m so honored. Thanks! Only another buncha book people would think I’m cool!

  25. Thank you, I think this is the first time anyone has thought I was kool. 🙂

  26. Bloody Hell! It’s a Kool Barrage!

    Thank you so much, Chartroose! I’ll display this with pride.

  27. […] visit Chartroose, and I’ll bet she’ll let you be a member […]

  28. Wow! Hey .. it’s an honour. Sorry it took so long to notice! Thanks.

  29. […] a belated thank you to the hilarious Chartroose for inducting me into the Kool Kids Klub and to the oh so sweet Becky for saying that she loves my […]

  30. ok so, I suck at computers, like majorly, and I’m trying to put the button in my sidebar but it is saving to my computer as bitmp or something and wordpress will not allow me to use that file type …. how do I fix this? I really want to display it… help!! 🙂 thanks.

  31. Heather, if you have Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, you can open a .bmp and resave it as a jpeg and then WP will accept.

    There might be easier ways but this is what I know…

  32. Hooray! I’m sorry it took me so long to notice that I’m a Kool Kid! I am behind on my blog visiting. But what a nice surprise! 🙂

  33. […] bloggers have made my day!   A shout out to Chartroose for inducting me into her Kool Kidz Klub.  I am thrilled to be an offical KKK member!  Sounds so […]

  34. Thank you for your site 🙂
    I made on photoshop backgrounds for myspace and youtube and whatever
    my backgrounds:http://tinyurl.com/6r7cav
    take care and thank you again!

  35. Thank You! You are now an honorary member of the Kool Kidz Klub! Woot!
