Blog Wild A Go-Go









This post is coming to you live from a public library computer.


I'd like to think of it as being on location.


I am supposed to be out getting a few books. I couldn’t help it that the poor computer was staring at me, come hithering me over to use it. Big sad monitor all lonely.


Be kind to your local technology. It’s a rule.


Do you think I need to join Bloggers Anonymous? Is this the first sign of a problem? Do you think….Aw hell….


Jimmy Crack Corn!


That’s right! Yes, this blog is a guilty pleasure for me. I admit it. There.


Admitted it- First step.


Not giving a crap-Second step.


Now go chase someone with a real problem.


Not shaking this vice. Can’t make me. No matter how many frowns I may get because I shoved some poor soul out of my way so that I could use the computer first.


She probably has insurance.


Anyway, I have always been of the school –Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you cry alone. Well the other day, I lost it over lint and I could swear that the cat got a little misty. No longer holds water.


And before becoming a mom, whenever I would hear a mother yelling at a child in the store or at the park I would wonder- Now what kind of a woman yells at her kid that way?


Now seven years into it, when I hear a mother yelling in the store or at the park I wonder Now what the hell did that kid do to their mother to make her have to scream like that. Tsk tsk.


Ahem…. excuse, me but there are several patrons waiting to use this computer.’


The librarian gently nudges.


Uh helloooo, typing here! ‘Yeah, okay, I’ll be off in a sec.’


Whore.


So as I was saying…


‘You’ve been on here for quite a while. I think that it is time for someone else to take a turn’ One of the patrons pointed out.


Hmm...Now how would a healthy well-balanced individual have responded?


How the hell should I know?


That's ok, I've been kicked out of better.


Whew! Thank God for my laptop!

Aw, girlfriend... You're not alone. I used to have a horse, now I have a blog. I love my blog, but I really miss my horse. Maybe I'll go over to my blog now and write about that.

I see your little icon all over and I thought I'd come by and see what you're all about...have to admit you have me giggling! Blogging is also an addiction for me. I indulge in it while I drink, that way I can get all my addictions out of the way at once.

Amo on November 2, 2009 at 6:20 PM said...

That was hilarious!!! I laughed out loud at the part about seeing mothers yelling at their kids in public. So true! I love your blog! And what a crotchety librarian!

It's becoming an addiction for me as well! Facebook and blogging! Love 'em! :-)

jenie on November 2, 2009 at 7:51 PM said...

hahahaha "whore." that's what i'd be thinking in my head too. is that bad?
hahahaha! you're cracking me up. ps. i was looking longingly at the computer when i was in the library a few days ago too. had it not been for the kids, well, yada yada yada.

I used to be one of those "library ladies" until I quit to WAH! I had to laugh at the post.

Mrs. Call Me Crazy on November 4, 2009 at 7:20 PM said...

OMG! I am the exact same way! I think things like, "Wouldn't this be great to write about?" And then I think I am screwed up for thinking about my blog all the time. I also am pretty sure that my husband is sick of it and I am only like 3 months in.


He sucks.

Hey, thanks for stopping by! It's great to meet other blog obsessed friends like ourselves!

p.s. I'm jealous of your laptop. My el cheap-o craptastic computer is pretty much exactly like the public library ones.

Tamara on November 5, 2009 at 3:38 PM said...

Hahahaha I always leave your blog with a smile on my face, you crack me up!!! I keep my good ol laptop next to me all the time so let me know if you are joining bloggers anonymous cuz i'm right there with ya! LOL

I think your blog is lovely! I have an award for you at http://kats-confessions.blogspot.com/
when you have a chance. Have a great day!

Nancy@ifevolutionworks.com on November 5, 2009 at 6:38 PM said...

I bet the pc was really for her because she needed to check comments on her blog. I betcha that's it!

Miti on November 6, 2009 at 6:28 AM said...

Blogging is definitely important in my book!!!

Don't people know the importance of a great post?!! You need concentration, totally uttered silence. Is a little peace and quite too much to ask?!! And now you can't even get that at the library. What is going on in this world? I tell ya! What are you supposed to do? Ignore that beautiful little (un)monitored face staring back at you with those big beautiful keys just waiting to be tapped. I think NOT! You keep your head held down on the little screen and don't get up til you're good and ready! Besides, this isn't just about you. This is about all of us and how much we love it here. So don't let them distract you. Keep on keeping on.

{Hmmmmm, I think I just gave myself a little pep talk while I was at it :o)

Theta Mom on November 6, 2009 at 7:30 AM said...

Blogging = pure addiction. Totally with ya girl!

Never thought of using a library computer to write a post. What a great idea....on location! I'm gonna do it!

Cairo Typ0 on November 7, 2009 at 4:09 AM said...

It's a public library and you write a public blog! Ergo since you are providing a public service you deserve extra computer time! :p

~Rachée on November 7, 2009 at 12:43 PM said...

LOL!
I work in a library and always see the mad computer dash. I too am guilty of visiting another library and finding myself drawn to the computer to update a blog.
And the mom thing? Yes, I used to harshly judge that yelling mom now I'm ready to throw in with her!

The Absence of Alternatives on November 9, 2009 at 4:48 PM said...

I seek out free wifi now like whores on crack. If there is a therapy group, sign me up too.

The Absence of Alternatives on November 9, 2009 at 4:49 PM said...

Sorry, I meant like whores on crack seeking out drug. Not that whores on crack cannot be looking for free wifi, I am not prejudiced like that, but then the whole witty metaphor thing does not really work...

Mrsblogalot on November 9, 2009 at 4:56 PM said...

Okay guys....First B.A. meeting held at the nearest public library.

First one to the computer wins! Oh...bring your own first aid kit (-:!

Chris on November 9, 2009 at 7:58 PM said...

I can't figure it out. I've always got at least one and a half jobs, too many hobbies and a wife who is not exactly maintenance-free, but the blog still calls to me. At least in your case, it's time well spent. Oh, and thanks for dropping by.

Jamee on November 11, 2009 at 5:30 AM said...

This post is hilarious! I think I need to be in BA too! I have become a total addict!

Angela on November 11, 2009 at 8:50 PM said...

Grab An Award-see below

Finally, you do not need to be a recipient of an award to give an award!

Grab An Award – My way of awarding it forward. The only rules are: THERE ARE NO RULES (Only rule is no rules? Rule for rules? Is that a rule? I’m so confused)

And what is nicer than giving an award with no strings attached just because?

So in the spirit of fun blog awarding and ‘cause I think they’re a great way to connect and share the blog love with our awesome fellow bloggers (without the chain letter affect-they give me the willies), I have created The Divine Blogger and Rock Star Blogger Awards to grab-I know, fancy right? -(o.k. so I won't quit my day job)

Grab it and let the lucky recipient (s) know that you have given them a rule-free award and not to be afraid to pick it up on your site. Once they grab it from your site, they are free to pass it along to others (rule-free of course). And anyone can grab it from their sites to pass on as well.

Hope you all enjoy awarding it forward!

Now hurry! Go make room in your closet for all that good karma. And please get rid of those old sweatpants while you're at it! (-:

Thanks so much to Lisa at Grandmasbriefs.com (the Grandma sites got it going on yo) and Robyn at Simply Delightful and Tamara at homespunheartscandlesand Jane @agingmommyblog for this award. You guys are awesome!

Okay, here are my 10 honest things about myself:

1. I am an extremely well balanced individual

2. I am easily distracted

3. I don’t take rules seriously

4. I lied about number one (number 3 made me do it)

5. I have a short attention span

6. I often don’t finish what I sta..
