Luuuuuv blahg [snort 🐗]

yarnsnakesHow many times did I say “I love” [this, that, or whatever] in yesterday’s blahg? Kee-reist. Whether you are one of my nine regulars or some poor soul who stumbled along looking for something else, all I can say is something like, “Ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances.” — Sam (archaeologist, not dog, sometime back in the day but I bet she still says it).

Why do I bother slapping some words up here day after day after day so a few people who obviously do not have enough to do can watch the paint dry? I do not know. I have no interest in a writing career (although writing skills are necessary for ANY job in the info tech industry and probably quite a few others). I just like to journal. I never got along with keeping a written diary but somehow, when the internet came along, I couldn’t keep my hands off the keyboard. Yes, let’s tell everybody all about my life and I’ll post some pictures too. If I can, that is. Back in the 1990s, posting a photo to the internet was more often than not an exercise in total frustration (and it may be that way this weekend since I’ll be hanging around up at Tahq).

What do I have to offer here? Well, usually the spelling, although there are those moments when I omit and/or insert an apostrophe in a word that needs one or doesn’t. I know better and I am always mortified when I make those kinds of mistakes because spelling was something I was always good at as a kid and I remember clearly the “there/their/they’re” and “its/it’s” worksheets we got in second grade or whenever it was. I got 100% on just about every spelling test I ever took as a kid, yet I still make these kind of mistakes. I correct that kind of stuff but how the heck do you delete a whole crapload of “I love” stuff out of yer boring old paint-drying blahg. Tomorrow will be [today is] a new day. Onward.

Writing? I occasionally look back through the years, usually when I am looking for something like Mike Cat. Sometimes I used to be funnier. Sometimes I used to be more boring. I used to be… I am just a baggy old kayak woman making her way through life and writing about the parts that she can write about, sometimes more entertainingly than others.

Love y’all, especially those of you who have bothered to keep up.

    “Love, Love, Love, Love is all you need!” Go listen to that song and you won’t feel like you overused the word at all. I always wondered if you could do a round between the Beatles song and “Why can’t we be friends?” that Dan and Dave listened to with high frequency, back in the day. My real question though, is what are those knitted objects? Yarn- bombed snakes?

    I enjoy putting together a blog post more than journaling. I enjoy going back to look at photos and words I’ve posted. There have been times in my life that were agonizing to live through, yet writing about them helped in some small way.
