Having my blog so easily accessible is going to be potentially annoying. I can tell already.
I arrive at the bus stop at 6:45 am and my office 7:45 am, so as you can see I have some idle time. However, as my poor blog has suffered some neglect as of late (as evidenced by the numbers over there –> ) it could stand some rapid-fire attention.
Once upon a time, I used to blog daily, or near it. Granted I was married and living in Snoqualmie, so I didn’t exactly have what you’d call a raging social life, but needless to say I had quite a bit more time for such things. The subject matter wasn’t altogether as fascinating as it is now, where I have downtown Seattle and Cap Hill as fodder. Snoqualmie + married life + no friends to speak of = the following topics:
– I really hate leaf blowers
– it’s really busy at work on thanksgiving
– I painted the livingroom walls
– my dogs and my husband are all sleeping at 3 in the afternoon
– hey! It’s raining…
Now I get to write about Peep massacres and stalking panhandlers, so it all worked out.
This was also before the advent of Facebook.
Where once I would notice something quirky, noteworthy, amusing, or what I considered to be a blog-qualifier, became pathetically truncated into a “status update”. What’s worse, is once this nugget of (what I consider to be) cleverness is dumped into facebook’s massive database of grammatically incorrect banality (yes, I am an elitist like that), it’s pretty much lost, unless you have an hour or so to search back through all of your old posts.
I did once. I found that even though I opened my account in 2007, it only goes back to 2008. Thieving bastards, they are.
That’ll teach me to take the easy way out, I suppose.
Perhaps now that I have more opportunity to write I should go back and use some of those updates as potential blog topics. Although I may find it disturbing how often I’ve quoted “Monty Python and The Holy Grail” and “The Big Lebowski”.
