What a fantastic day! I discovered a great shade of lipgloss that makes me look just like Angelina Jolie. Ok, not really. But I did discover a few things about blogging that I didn’t know this time yesterday. First of all, I discovered that it’s better to include several paragraphs rather than one big giant one.
See. New paragraph.
And I discovered that alot of people like to blog about their kids. Me, not so much. So if you’re on here hoping to hear little anecdotes about how cute it is when my kids drop their taco on the floor, it’s not going to happen. Quickly log out of here and go in search of another.
I probably come off as sounding calous and even kid-hating. I don’t hate kids. Certainly not my own. Not so crazy about other people’s though. But most every minute of the day is devoted to the little creatures and their needs. I have needs too. The need to be seen and heard as a person. Not a mommy. I don’t even like to be called mommy. I’d like it if they’d call me by my first name. Actually, I had my older two calling me by my first name until they started kindergarten. Then they saw all the other kids talking about their “mommy-this” and “mommy-that,” and after that, I couldn’t get them back on track. They do refer to my ex-husband by his first name, though, and that gives me a thrill. Then I can pretend he’s not their father. Then I can pretend he’s just some homeless guy they befriended at Seven-Eleven while they were buying their slurpees. He’s not homeless though. But I like the visual of him sitting hunched on the side of the building holding a tattered cardboard sign that says: “Ninjas killed my family.”
Ok, new paragraph.
I also learned that narcissism is the favorite topic of most every blog out there. So turns out I’m not all that original. So it would be a good thing if I could focus on certain topics, and this way, should I actually ever get followers (I can only hope,) then they’d have something to follow, rather than a random collection of my layered thoughts.
And on that note, I will focus on one thought: I will say one good thing in every one of my entries… so I don’t end up sounding like so many out there who use their blog as an opportunity to slam people they don’t like (case in point, homeless guy at the Seven-Eleven) or bitch about everything because they are bitter and hostile (case in point, homeless guy at the Seven-Eleven).
So here is my good thought for the day: simple carbs are good. They cheer you up when you’re feeling down… I know, that was random, wasn’t it? I’m hungry though, and am trying to stay off of simple carbs, so they seem to be front and centre on my mind. But still, that’s the good thought. Not terribly inspired. I’ll do better next time.
Well, if someone out there actually read this post, I thank you. Being narcissistic is a hard job, but someone’s got to do it. Might as well be me.
