Saturday Random Shit AKA: Bloggers-Block ADD

This coincides with my brother's theory that pickles are just cucumbers soaked in evil.

Saturday.  Day off.  Day of rest.  I ignored my therapist and slept til 1:00 today.

To all the parents and mom and dad bloggers out there that read, it was AWESOME!  You’re welcome.

My brilliant idea for the weekend was to write 3 or 4 posts and save them in draft so I’d have some stuff “in the queue” to post during the week when I get home from work and don’t feel like doing shit.  The problem is that I wound up with bloggers block and couldn’t think of one good idea for a post today, but I could think of about 1000 things that were just randomly funny but didn’t warrant an entire blog.

“Like a fucking angel but with curse words and prescription drugs”

@RavingPleb

Yep, that’s me!

Quite possibly the greatest compliment I’ve ever received since starting this blog ever.  Left to me in a comment yesterday by the yet another new woman I am in love with, @RavingPleb at, of course, The Raving Pleb.  I was so touched I had to Tweet it immediately . . . and post it on both my personal Facebook page and the Opticynicism Facebook page.  It was so fucking beautiful, I just had to make it the title of tonight’s post, because aside from still being a relatively boring day yet again, things actually kinda went ok for me today.  So to start the day with that compliment, it simply gave a little foreshadowing to the rest of the day.

Jackshit Tuesday, Like Jackshit Monday without snakes

nosnakes

I had to add the “without snakes” disclaimer for my loyal reader Teri because apparently I have to do that now.  Particularly after the comment she left on yesterdays post.  For those of you that missed it, it was something like:

“Where was the fucking WARNING “picture of SNAKE coming up” holy crap dude!”

Ok, it wasn’t something like that . . . it was exactly like that because I copied and pasted. Read the rest . . .

Jackshit Monday, how to get jackshit done!

Good advice no matter what day of the week it is.
Good advice no matter what day of the week it is.

It’s another Monday in Florida and my quest to make my niche here continues.  It’s Monday and by definition they are kind of supposed to suck, but this is kind of how every day goes for me around here lately, so if you want to know how the “day in the life of me” goes, it’s a little something like this:

Monday for me, as with any other day does not begin without coffee.  Nothing happens until there is coffee.  Nothing good, anyway. Read the rest . . .

Stuff is no longer broken

Like, totally my bad.
Like, totally my bad.

So I stayed up all fuckin’ night because I had no idea just HOW broken the blog was.

I also figured out that I’m the one that broke it.  Well, sorta.

At any rate, pretty much every image in every post that I made prior to last week was a broken link.  Which it wasn’t, to begin with when I originally switched to my own host.

There were no pics in any posts.  None.  Zero. Read the rest . . .

I found some broken stuff . . .

And you can bet your ass there's a dark side over here!
And you can bet your ass there’s a dark side over here!

First of all, let me just say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you that paid attention to my last post and have been helping to spread the word about the blog.  I’ve got new followers on Twitter including TheBloggess, which is about as close to a testimonial from Jesus himself as I can get.

Ok people, I need some twats . . . and stuff

 

ADVERTSING, MOTHERFUCKER!  DO YOU ADVERTISE?!
ADVERTSING, MOTHERFUCKER! DO YOU ADVERTISE?!

It’s my own fault, I know.  I took a 3 year hiatus and basically lost just about everyone I had following this blog and now I’m looking for a little help.

I’ve added some neat new shit.

I’ve got some cool Spotify stuff on here (Thanks Noa, for keeping me up all night trying to figure that shit out). Read the rest . . .

I need to give a shout out, because they deserve it

uswdh

I’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into getting the blog back together, moved, reconfigured, reinstalled, themed and somewhere in the midst of all that, writing a post or two.

First of all, I am FUCKING ECSTATIC to be free of the confines of WordPress.com.

I thank them for their help in getting me started three years ago, but damn you for tying my hands behind my back when I finally figured out what I was doing.

And now here I am on my own host.  Well, it’s not mine, it belongs to somebody else, but that’s what the shout out is about. Read the rest . . .

This is the NEW new Opticynicism

newopticyn

The transition has been made and while some of you may still experience some problems over the next couple of days, the move has been made and the blog is no longer in the confining, clutching hands of WordPress.com.

In truth, I’ve actually deactivated the wordpress.com site altogether.  Well, I didn’t deactivate it, I simply renamed it, which sort of solved the problem of people trying to come to this website and still getting redirected to the old one. Read the rest . . .
