Bloggin' Business and Praisin' the Loon

On this tired evenin', (I'm kinda into this whole' thing right now for some reason), I'm feelin' the need to take care of some bloggy bizness.

Aside from the fact that I'm still wonderin' every single day if I should even keep this blog alive, I have all kinds of bloggy ideas runnin' through my already too busy brain.  So we'll see which way the axe falls, if you will.  Is that a sayin'?

Okay I'm tired of the ..'in thing already.  MovinGGGG on...

First item:

The MWOB Blogroll  

So I've been feeling a little lame that I don't have the MWOB Blogroll up and running.  I've been cruising around blogtown for not quite two months and I've seen all kinds of blogrolls.  Mainly super LONG ones.  And I get it and all - you're supposed to roll someone so they roll you and all that good blog shit.  

But really, is anyone really reading ALL of their blogroll when they have like more than 30 blogs??  Okay maybe you are but what else are you friggin' doing?  And do you really like all of those blogs you have listed?  They all entertain you and you really read them and not just rush through them to fulfill your whole blogroll obligation?

Maybe I'm way off base.  Maybe you love your entire blogroll and you find the time to read each and every one.  Well, whatever.  If you have something enlightening to add on the blogroll issue lemme know. Maybe I'm missing something.

Well, I've decided I can't operate this way.  I can't just have a ton o' blogs on my roll just because. A couple weeks ago, Ms. Britt had a good post about this whole issue which got my wheels turning.

So I've decided that I'm only going to list blogs that I am loyal to and that I really enjoy for a variety of reasons.  I'm gonna have a couple different categories, if you will, and if you're listed, then you're gonna KNOW, damn it, that I read you, I find you entertaining, your writing moves me on some level and you're just friggin' good in my eyes.  Whatever that's worth.  Like you care.

So I'm working on it and I hope to be announcing the MWOB Blogroll at some point in the near future. Again, like you care.

Item Two:

Awards and Tagging Memes from "Musings of a Quirkyloon."

So I found this blog through (who promptly rejected my ass when I applied to be a funny blog, by the way) and so I started reading her and doing some commenting and she has returned the favor by reading MWOB.  Maybe she likes this scene, maybe she's just pretending, but I have a feeling she's a genuine chick and only reads what she likes.  I love that.  Her name is Sandie and this is her blog.  Her brain is wacked.  And I mean that as a total compliment. Some of the angles she comes up with are just so...unique.  And funny.  And real.  And her stuff is varied and smart.  And well, I like it.  It's got a different tone than other blogs I read and that's why I keep going back for more.  

So "Musings of a Quirkyloon" gave me this award before I left for Arizona for my aunt's funeral. Maybe she was just feeling bad for me and thought the award would cheer me up.  It's a cool award and all but I'd rather my aunt still be here on the planet.  I'm just sayin.' (Everyone in blogtown seems to say that phrase so I thought I would join in.)

But here's the award for all to see:

Thank Quirkyloon.  

So then Sandie decided to get all crazy a couple of days ago and tag me for some meme thing where I'm supposed to list seven random things about myself.  She was so creative when listing her random things and I'm just. Not. That. Creative.

And to be honest, I am so bored with myself that I can barely stand the thought of listing seven things about myself.  

I will list ONE.

1) I hate putting my ass in bathtubs where other people have bathed.  It sicks me out.  I always like to put a little towel down or something to protect my ass from all of the other asses that have been there before me.  My dude and I just remodeled/rebuilt our home and we have a new master bathroom with a brand spankin' new bathtub.  This is the ONLY bathtub I will sit in without that little towel underneath.  (Wow, wasn't that fascinating.)

And now if you would be so kind, why don't you tell me ONE random thing about yourself?

Because really I find all of you WAY more interesting than I find myself.

Are you game?


  1. I'm "stealin" your one random fact idea and will do my blog on that tonight :)


  2. I only chew the hair on the left side of my head, never ever the right.

  3. Yup, just tried it and it felt WRONG.

  4. I don't really surf. Use to, but my six month old boy must not like it when I surf because everytime I leave him lying in the sand to go paddle out, well he just starts yelling at all the beach goers. And they don't like to be yelled at so I have to get out of the water. Bummer.

    About blogrolls, I have over 200 blogs in my feed list now. I take a quick glance at a post, if it apears lame I skip it all together. Even if it is one of my regular blogs I read.

  5. I have 30something on my blog roll. I periodically go through and delete ones that are getting boring or don't show me the love that I give theirs. I catch up with everyone on the weekends if I can't keep up during the week.

    OK.. 1 interesting thing about myself.. how can I choose just one?

    Actually.. I can't think of ANYTHING

  6. I love your style.

    Okay, one random thing. Let's see. I love chicken livers. I do. Sometimes I go to the store and pick up a package of them, and make a kind of gravy with them and eat them on toast.

    Now I'm gonna have to kill you.

  7. I never untie my shoes. Ever.


    How random is that? And do you feel like you know me better now? hee hee.

  8. Oh Lee!

    Trust me it wasn't a sympathy award! I really like your BLOG! You're funny and keep it real and that's the way it oughta be!

    Aside: I can't believe you didn't get into Humorbloggers! GASP!!! You want me to beat some blogger butt up for ya? Cuz I will! Just say the word!

    Anyhoo, thanks for the kind words regarding my blog.

    You asked a question about how my mind works, truly, I don't know! I'm just quirky!!

    hee hee

    But you milady, RAWK!

  9. okay, something random about me... hmmmm... i'm so NOT random EVER - all my habits are just so ME that I don't think they're random at all! I think I spend too much time with only myself as adult company that I'm getting more and more embarrassing to the outside world. That's my random thing... I'm pretty sure neighbors and friends alike are starting to just shake their heads in wonder as they see me approach - (she's a nice lady and all, committed to her community and all, BUT... see how she's looking these days... poor girl...) - Example: I just took my teenager to school in my pajamas, slippers, vest I've been wearing for 3 days, shirt I've been wearing for TWO, strange fluffy mittens that I've never seen anyone wear EVER anywhere (it's 24 degrees this morning) and the itchiest, most dandruffy hair you've ever seen! Hows that for anti-social!!!!

  10. I'm with you on the tub thing. I don't even take a bath in my own tub. To me, it's the equivalent of sitting in dirty water. I would have to shower before the bath, and dammit, who has time for that? I also hate hot tubs. For the same reason. Those gross disgusting bubbles that foam at the top? YUCK. I don't know if that means the tub is dirty or has too many chemicals or WHAT, but it doesn't really matter because I am not putting my clean ass in there.

    One random thing - I don't like using public toilets. I even mention this on my blog today. It must be along the lines of the bathtub/ass issue.

  11. random? how about this:

    it is 12:23 on a lovely wednesday afternoon and i still haven't brushed my teeth!

  12. My blogroll is so far from being updated! I have a ton of blogs I read, which in turn leaves me no time to update my blogroll. You'll definitely be there when I have the time to update.

    I'm not putting my random fact here, b/c I'm not creative and I have 2 tags waiting that require 7 facts each... yeah... not.gonna.happen!

  13. What you say about having a blogroll and all that is what a lot of people think, I think. I don't know. I still don't know all the rules for blogging.

    Sorry about hanging up on you earlier today. My damn phone died. It was so wonderful to hear your voice!!

    I think you probably know all the interesting things there are to know about me. Did you know I was suspended in the 7th grade for getting drunk on campus?

  14. I like to go to Home Depot and put my ass in brand new tubs that will go into other people's houses.

    I kid, I kid! :-)

  15. Oh...I have been struggling with the whole blogroll thing lately too. I have like 35 blogs that I "follow" and some of them are just not that great anymore...but I feel rude to "unfollow" them. I like your idea of only putting blogs on your blogroll that you really read and enjoy, I might have to steal that one from you.

    Now for some randomness...I love and hate strbucks at the same time. I love it because I love coffee and I can order a drink anywhere and know exactly what I am getting (I like consistancy). I hate it because I am not a huge fan of gigantic corporate companies. Whats a girl to do!?!

  16. I can tip my head back, touch my chin with my hand, swallow and make a VERY AUTHENTIC farting sound.

  17. Oh...I'll tell you, but only because you asked. One random bizarre fact about me...I hate buttons, I never wear them. I don't know why, I didn't have some traumatic experience with a button as a child...I just don't like 'em
    I'm nuts...there ya go:)

  18. Bath? I can't even sit in a bathtub. I haven't taken a bath in years. Only showers!

  19. Ok random fact: I can burp the alphabet. its a little trick I learned while in the ARMY.

    on the blogroll issue: Most of my blog roll I read almost everyday. THere are only a few that I don't read everyday and are on there becuase sometimes they make me giggle...
