BWAHAHA. Then I fell out of my chair with the sheer ridiculousness of that idea.
I remembered my mom emailed me a random funny blog post, many, many years ago, with the suggestion I start my own blog. "Oh, no," I said with my usual unerring prescience, "You need to be a little unbalanced to write a blog. Those people take entirely inconsequential passing moments and turn them into A Thing and who has time for that?"
Please forgive me, I knew not of what I spoke - apparently I AM a little unbalanced and can spin three paragraphs out about absolutely nothing. Or, as one kind reader recently pointed out, three paragraphs of "drivel and whining."
Not to say any of y'all are unbalanced. My favorite fellow bloggers actually seem extraordinarily competent & level headed, even in the face of some epic level bullshit. I, however, can't write about work for fear of getting fired and my extra curricular activities are curtailed by budget & the time restrictions of said job... So I end up with whining drivel. I was going for "struggling for work/life balance" but alas. Apparently.
The only time I was (intentionally) dickish online was when someone waxed on about the "right way" to blog and criticized various others' headers, fonts, & post lengths. Apparently I'm a latent libertarian as this random inconsequential post filled me with rage. How DARE someone presume there is a "right way"? The Internet is home to everything from cat videos to impassioned essays for justice - but nooo, let's start culling the poor assholes who don't recognize the incontrovertible superiority of Times New Roman over Arial. And don't even get me started about comic sans.
Or -and here's a novel idea- the High Inquisitors of Social Media could simply move on and read something else. Or saaayyy... do the dishes.
I very nearly just took this blog private but that is really, really annoying what with all the passwords & secrecy & stuff so I will formally state, for the record, that if you don't like the drivel found here there are some really awesome cat videos over on YouTube. Also? Go screw yourself.
