2008 ~ WHAT A YEAR IT'S BEEN!

While I would LOVE to personally THANK everyone who has, in way way or another, supported me, my blog, and my mission of being the world's first (& only!) Traveling Bra to cover the entire globe...that would be impossible! But I want ya'll to know how much I truly appreciate each and every one of you...Chaperons, readers, friends and family. Never in my wildest dreams (well, maybe one or two) did I ever imagine that my old bra I would have the honor of uplifting and linking so many people, places, and things together. So thank you ALL from the bottom of my cups! And I hope you'll enjoy this little a trip down Mammary Lane...

The whole magic of the "Traveling Bra" lies in people. People sharing parts of them, and who they are. In many ways, we are so alike in all corners of the globe. The need to connect ... the will to share a smile, and power to love.
A simple concept of sending an artical of clothing has created such a sense of unity and friendship.
Each and every chaperone has been incredibly entertaining and unique. I always look forward to Olga's next destination, especially when it is a blogger I know.
Crazy ... a little, that Olga has really taken on a personality, a history, and comradery of this blogs readers. As I watched this video it was like watching the travels of a family member. How cool is that?
I LOVED this year end wrap up - a LOT. Really well done

As I look back on 2008, I see time gliding by so quickly ... far faster than usual. This year was much more busy than years previous.
My instant thoughts of remberance are family. Spending time with my grandaughter, seeing my brothers family and kids on holidays, playing golf with my best friend in the entire world ... my father, and talking with my mother. People are the glue that bind us, and reflect sunshine directly into our hearts.
Of course, having Olga in Hollydale was a big highlight too, and I believe I learned something about myself as I proudly held up a bra in the middle of a city. I did things during Olga's visit that ordinarily I would never do. Days that contain drastic departures from everyday life are so invigorating. I do not remember the hundreds of days that I went to work and then came home. Special days stand out. In all reality, we are truly a large file of memories.
Thanks for all the memories here on this video, on this blog over the year, and in my own life.
Most of all, I am proud and glad to call you my friend.

Happy New Year Olga - (smile)
Something tells me that 2009 will be even better.

Bon Voyageee !!!!!!!!!!!

The Rev. said...

2008? Hmmmm....so many, many things have happened!

Sadly, it doesn't look like Olga & The Rev. are meant to meet this year, but that'll make the start of 2009 just that much better!

In all seriousness, 2008, for The Rev., has truly been a blessing. I've met so many wonderful folks on this ol' internet thang (hint, hint, nudge, nudge).

See you soon!

Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Daisy said...

That was great fun to watch, Olga!

Happy New Year to you! :D

Daddy Papersurfer said...

We have a name for bras like you in this country ........ I wonder what it is? ...... forward? ....... pushy? ........... loose? ........ available? ...... up for it? - tee hee.

Shawn, you's an angel! *hugs*

[and I can't watch the video because of my connection - boo hoo]

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

70's - Oh for some reason I seem to have a real knack for bringing out that "look" (like your brothers) on many men's faces! ;) I've got my straps crossed that my blog-mistress will accompany me across the pond next year too! Thanks for being such a GREAT Bosom Buddy!!!
XOXOXO
~Olga

Jaffer - It has been a PLEASURE getting to know you more this year! Thanks a bunch for the Sugar Snap Pea Meme and for making my Santa Hat wiggle! :)
XOXO
~Olga

Speedy - That's the nicest and most coherent comment I've ever heard you write! :) I don't know what to say! So how about a big FAT SMOOOOOooOOooooOOOTCH!

YOU certainly have ME all figured out, don't you? *SMILE*...and frankly, I'd be lost in the bloggysphere without you...or at least be very lonely. You make the blogosphere (and the "real world") and better place & I am VERY honored to be your friend!
XOXOXOXO
~Olga

Don't worry Rev! Dust off your robe & scepter thingy...I'm headin' your diection! That's West, right? Woo-Hoooo!!!

Oh DaddyP - Don't bother hiding it...I KNOW you only have eyes for me! (NOW PLEASE....may I have them back?!?!?)
XOXOXOXXOXOXO
~Olga
PS: Looking forward to seeing your hairy legs again at the FMB New Years Eve Party! Snip snip!

Busy Bear said...

Gosh DaddyP - What's wrong with your connection? Is that some kind of euphemisim? Don't they have internet on Clifftops? Oh dear...I'm confused again.

RennyBA said...

It was a real pleasure to have you here in Norway with us and a thrill money can't buy to show you around in Oslo!
Thanks for giving me the chance to fulfil the aim of my blog; To tell the world about Norway, our culture, traditions and habits.
We wish you all the best and adventures travels in 2009!
Btw: My best memories: Showing you around with the nudes at Vigeland Park ;-)

Jenn Thorson said...

Mammary lane, oh my god, I think I've heard all the boob puns and then-- there's another one bouncing along. :)

Happy New Year's to You, Olga! It's terrific to have gotten to know you!

Lauren said...

It's been fun getting to know you over at Twitter. I don't know if I have a favorite memory. But my favorite moment was listening to my vm and learning I received my doula certification from DONA. WOOOHOOOT!
Many blessings for a happy and health new year.

Miss Moneypenny said...

From Daddy Papersurfer to Speedy Boobcat, Olga looks great after being stretched around the globe! :~)

Hopefully, the Rev will come of his church closet as a Cloistress wearing Olga in 2009! ;~)

Happy New Year!

Teena in Toronto said...

Wow! That's quite a year!

OMYWORD! said...

My Dear Olga (and her gorgeous keeper)...

My fav memory was taking Olga to church at Sacre Couer. And I was too much of a formerly Catholic chicken to do the deed. :-)

My fav memory for myself in 2008? Hmmm. It's a collage actually, of all the meals I've had here at home, or out in restaurants, with my friends here in Paree. I love the food and wine and great friends. That's the best!

I wish you and yours a really cozy, safe, warm holiday and a breast full o' dollars for the new year!

xoxoxoxoxo,
moi

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Don't worry Busy Bear - It's very easy to get confused around here.
~Olga

Renny - I LOVED hanging around with you and all those crazy naked Norwegians! :)
XOXO
~Olga

Thank Jenn! I've enjoyed getting to know you better this year too...and glad you think I'm punny!
~Olga

Lauren - And I'm just tickled PINK to have gotten to know you AND The Chanukah Fairy! :)
~Olga

Yes indeed, Ms MP - Speedy and DaddyP really stretched me to the limit! And I wouldn't change things for a second...'twas worth every sprinkle & piece of gravel I'm STILL finding in my cups! :)
~Olga

Teena - IT CERTAINLY WAS! :)
~Olga

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

OHMYLISA! Food, wine, friends...I agree!...what more do we really need?!

Besides chocolate...and maybe the internet!
XOXOXXOXOXOXOOXXOOXXOXOXOO

The Rev. said...

Westward Ho!!

And that's in no way a slight towards you, I assure you! ;)

Julie said...

I haven't visited here often but you never cease to amaze me with your creativity! While watching this video I noticed your pink ribbon. I would love for you to tell me how this blog got started. Your thoughts and purpose...you are very interesting!

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Rev...that's pretty funny! :)
~Olga

Well Julie...it's kinda a long story...so please read my Amazing & 100% True Story!...it's explains everything.

And I got my pink ribbon during the Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco this year! Hope to see you 'round here again!
~Olga

fracas said...

Silly Olga, I couldn't pick just one memory from your stay here... my own cups runneth over with all the good thoughts. I shall never visit a mountain without remembering your trip with us, your driving the fraccy family car, shopping, hiking and then filling the fraccy home with the happy sounds of your girl's night around the piano.

He doesn't get too much right you know (he is old after all...) but DP said it well.

"Shawn, you's an angel! *hugs*"
