The Basic Story

I think I’m so clever, doing a play on words with my name and this blog title.  Unfortunately, if a random ever reads this, they’re just going to think I caint spale fer nuthin.

I plan to use this blog for absolutely nothing important.  The deal is, sometimes I just have more to say than what will fit on my Facebook status. So, why not start a blog?  Even if no one reads the dang thing, at least I’ve said my piece and can sleep at night knowing I did my part to clog up the internets with one more blog.

About me and this blog:

I am a magnet for men of stellar quality – those that are honest, trustworthy, sweet, thoughtful and kind.  I also use sarcasm a lot.  (Note to self – create a sarcasm font).  I will be happy to share with you the dating stories that friends say can only happen to me.  But, if Mr. Right comes along, I probably won’t write about him.  Jinxing and whatnot, you understand.  Watch, my luck, I’ll be ready and excited to go on another horrible date just so I can post about it and the guy will turn out to actually be decent.  I suppose that wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world….

I love movies and books.  I really love when movies are books first.  I might post about movies, and/or the actors in them.  I like when I’m watching an older movie or show and see the random extra who has become someone famous.  For instance, you know the girl at the grocery checkout in You’ve Got Mail that gets mad at Meg Ryan for having a credit card?  That’s totally Callie on Grey’s (not that I watch that show anymore).  Along the same lines, I like when I’m watching something current and see someone that used to be on some “quality” tv in the 80s.  For instance, you might remember that Fergie and AC Slater were on Disney Channel’s Kids Incorporated once upon a time and Ryan Reynolds was on a Nickelodeon soap opera named Fifteen.

Besides letting you in on the tragedies that some people would classify as dates and useless movie trivia, I also may post some videos I think are noteworthy.  For instance, I was just thinking about a Kentucky Headhunters music video in which a friend had a starring role as an extra.  If I can find that video, I’m totally posting it.  I have a feeling there’s some really good hair going on.

And, what’s a blog without recipes?  I’ve only got a handful of things I make well, but maybe I’ll get real savvy on this thing and post pictures along with the recipes.  Maybe.

I’ll try not to talk about my dog too much, because that would just be sad.  But, who am I kidding, I probably will.  I have GOT to get myself a baby….nobody thinks you’re crazy if you post about your kid, but if you post about your dogchild a lot, people start to wonder.

So, there you have it.  The first post.  And after rereading this, looks like I’ve got lots of ideas.  Any takers on betting how many posts I actually end up making??  And, let’s face it, this is probably one of the most boring blogs you’ve ever read.  But, I got a new computer for Christmas and for the first time ever, I have a laptop and wireless internet (I know, welcome to 2005).  I almost feel like with all this new technology, it’s my duty to my computer and wifi to do this thing.  So, now, Mama, it’s your duty as the mama to post a comment.  It’s kind of like when you would clap for me at soccer games – even though you’re embarrassed, you still have to cheer me on.  It’s the law.

    I love it, especially your idea for a sarcasm font. The world needs that. Also, I have a really great story for you — not one to retell on the blog but a funny story nonetheless.

    I absolutely L.O.V.E. this idea. And, I agree with “Jennifer” the sarcasm font is especially needed. Otherwise, how am I to communicate in this new-fangled world? These kids with their blogs, and smart phones, and Miley Cyrus.

    Oh Em, no sarcasm font necessary for your blog…I can totally hear your tone as I read your words. Not only that, I can see your facial expressions 🙂
