snapshots of an idle mind

i think my blog is kind of starting to suck. maybe not suck exactly but i’ve been looking at my recent posts and very few of them are thought provoking the way they once were. i think there’s something about blogs whether adult, regular or niche that causes any blogger to start out like gangbusters and then sort of fade out.

does it mean that they stop writing in their blogs? not always.

it just means that most of us have been saving up a lot of thoughts over the years so at first it’s easy to come up with fresh and new things to talk about. cut to two years later and it becomes significantly more difficult.

i’ve actually said things like “wait didn’t i write this post already?” and sometimes i really did.

especially the hillside ones *snerk*

i suppose one could argue that my perspective is evolving constantly but that feels a little bit like a copout.


and i got a freaking parking ticket :(


man sometimes i REALLY wish i didn’t have a ‘no deleting posted blog entries’ rule…


incidentally? i realise i’m totally full of it when i say i would dump my blog if i had a man. it’s more that i probably never would have started one.

would it change? yes absolutely, it would have to… but y’all are stuck with me now.


so, what does a stale blogger do when there aren’t any new memes floating around the blogverse?

and yes it’s clear that i’m stale, the posting frequency over there in the margin is obvious.

so, no new memes, no pics to post that othercat hasn’t posted already… go see them… okay i’ll post one…

harriet n’ grendel with audience

actually come to think of it i have a camera full of shots to upload… okay pics coming soon…

the good news is that in the writing of this post i thought of a couple more. in fact lately i’ve been discussing dating with a few different men my age and you want to know something freaky? they’re just as messed up as i am!!! so that post is coming and i wrote one the other day that’s depressing so i wanted to wait until i’d posted something cheerier first.


i have a coffee date… you may now all act like teenagers


one tree hill got renewed, watch me act like a teenager ;>


i’m going to get my BICYCLE!!!!

yes, after five freaking years i’m finally going to ride bikes again…

i can’t tell you how stoked i am!

[edited to add: i haven’t been able to ride because i’ve been recovering from my sixth or something whiplash incident and my shoulders couldn’t take the weight of myself using handlebars]



happy wednesday!



  1. How were you able to go five years without riding a bike?

    I like your blog… It’s real. Life isn’t always full of exciting events!

  2. SR: welcome to my corner of the web :)

    i couldn’t ride because my most recent whiplash incident wrecked my shoulder integration and it hurt too much to use the handlebars and put any pressure on my shoulders… but getting better.

    and thanks :)

  3. Coffee date, eh? So back to sorta dating? Maybe? I sometimes think my blog might be sucking. Certainly less people stop by on a normal basis than used to. But some of that has to do with a lot of people who used to read me and I used to read having decided not to blog anymore. But then, when I start thinking in those terms, I remind myself that the blog is for me. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love my blog peeps. But I started the blog as a place to rant, vent, etc. And it serves that purpose. So, I remind myself that I am not there to entertain people. Rather, this is a place where people can take a little break and peek into my life or my mind. And that’s just cool. Suckage about the ticket :( *huggers*

  4. i’m with secretrider — i always like your blog. you always have interesting things to say, even when you don’t think so.

    (refraining from acting like a teenager about the coffee date, but respectfully awaiting the post with details…:) )

  6. How excited are we about One Tree Hill? Oh yes, oh yes. I even have Chulo watching it… which is only fair since he’s got me watching Dancing with the Stars… and LOVING it! Bikes hurt my big old butt, but I’m excited for you that you’re getting yours! And I love coffee dates, there’s such a reduced expectation and an easy out. But if it goes well, you can linger for hours in the comfycushy chairs. I hope you have a great coffee date…or at least a great cup of coffee!

    Have missed you much … -hug-
