I get to meet a lot of really cool people whilst taking part in this little blogger (read: not so little) and the last couple of weeks have been no exception. In fact I met a whole group of ’em. They are known to the rest of the world as The Sisterwives and they have banded together to support, encourage and generally battle douchebaggery in numbers so they are assured of continued victory.

I promised you a post involving The Boy and what we are going to make him cook. I’m not going to back out of that promise, but I am going to be postponing it until Tuesday. Plans kind of changed this week and it became a necessity to delay the event until Monday night, but it’s okay. We’re not going to let him skate that easily. Instead, everyone is away this weekend but me. Liz is taking a much needed break and has gone off to Louisiana to attend the LSU game and let her friend get her drunk and make her feel better. Her shitty Thursday was so shitty that it actually infected Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday with its shittiness, so she needed the break. Girl and Boy are also away for the weekend doing their Girl and Boy things, which left me alone in the house for a couple days. So I started off the weekend with what people of my age do on a Friday night with the house to themselves. Read the rest . . .
You folks are awesome. No, seriously. You are. After last nights post I got retweets and favorites and new followers and the reader stats for the blog were actually pretty phenomenal when compared to other weekends. Weekend stats tend to suck. Weekday stats rule because you are all at work trying not to work, so that’s good stuff.
So here is the leftover random shit so I can start my week fresh. Read the rest . . .
I’m going to try and keep it somewhat short tonight because I know I can get pretty wordy, particularly with the ineffectiveness of, as well as the absence of Valium. I’ve only had one other person tell me that that was cool and that’s ’cause she’s pretty fuckin’ wordy too and also pretty cool, but we’ll get to all that right here because I’m going to start tonight with some more “new bloggers I’ve found” love.
Allow me for a moment to pull out my complete jumble of a notepad document . . . . Read the rest . . .
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. Read the rest . . .
It was another one of those days that not a goddamn thing happened that went the way it should.
Well, there was one thing and this shout out is special to me because I ran across her blog and she’s funny and brilliant and she had few Twitter followers and all of her posts were fantastic and NONE of them had any comments on them. The whole thing made me said because she was so incredibly funny and bright and it reminded me of how my blog used to be.
You know, like a week ago. Read the rest . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
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.
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 . . .
