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.

I made yet another friend on Twitter today, and ordinarily I’d wait to do another “blogger love” post to give props to her but our conversation there was relevant to today’s post, so I’ll go ahead and introduce @qwertygirl now. She has a great blog called Orange and Silver. I saw the word “Orange” and didn’t get any farther and immediately assumed it was a blog about “Orange is the New Black” and that I was going to be inundated with pics of naked lesbian love scenes so I got all excited. I was wrong and disappointed about that but as it turned out she’s funny and insightful and (and this is where our blogger platonic love story began) not at a loss for words. Much like myself, she seems to believe that if your post is less than 2000 words, well then it’s just not finished. Read the rest . . .
I took a couple days off from writing. I probably needed the break.
More importantly, you probably needed the break.
So I did a whole bunch of nothing on Sunday and Monday we went to a new friends house for some Labor Day barbecuin’. Well, new friends to me – Liz has known them forever. Now we have a fridge full of leftover chicken, ribs, sausage, potato salad and some other stuff. I think we’re good in the food department for a few days.
Then there was today. It started kind of early, but I had ALL of my shit together to go to the DMV and (fingers crossed) get that much sought after 10 day tag. I carefully went through my stack of paperwork to make sure everything was in order and caught a ride over to the office. 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 . . .
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 . . .
