Self Indulgent

Who? Me? Guilty. But not in the way that you would think. Or maybe it is, I can't really say since I'm not inside your head. Mine is crazy enough for 6 lifetimes, thankyouverymuch.

So I've been doing this blogging thing religiouslyoccasionally, um. Pretty much whenever the mood strikes me. My track record has been below par at best, but I'm working on it. I have always loved to write, my follow through just sucks. I also over use commas like it is my life calling so I'm sorry about that, too. Except not really.  I started and abandoned HUNDREDS of journals when I was a kid. Seriously. I couldn't ever find my "grove" for lack of a lamer turn of phrase. But blogging is finally a format I feel comfortable enough to come back to again and again. Mostly because I've completely abandoned any shame I may have had in the past. That doesn't mean I put every detail of my life on blast for the world to read, but I'm not afraid to. My goal is brutal honesty in dealing with this being an adult business. How am I doing so far?

Spoiler alert: At some point, I even plan on writing a book. That's kind of where I'm going with all of this nonsense. I've actually started a memoir, and it's just as disturbingly distasteful as my blog. I'm at a point where I've got to decide which lines I'm willing to cross. Stories I'm willing to tell. Relationships I'm ok with exposing, for the good, the bad, the ugly. I'm curious to all you out there who take the time to read this, what kind of things would YOU like to read about? I'm obviously not a jack of all trades. I'd go so far as to say I've really got nothing figured out. But I can tell a kick ass exaggerated story. I've seen some pretty dark days. Really dark, actually. Some past, some present, and surely some down the road I don't even know about yet. I honestly believe they are behind every funny person you meet. Humor, at least mine, comes in turning life on it's head. Saying, "screw you" to circumstances I can't control and making it fun for everyone. My mom has always said, with every situation you have two choices. You can laugh, or you can cry. I think we all know where I stand on that.

So friendships, what things do you enjoy reading? For me, I like learning about life, through humor and sorted advice from other's experiences. Leave me a comment, or shoot me an email and tell me your guilty don't even have to keep it clean. I'm just that kind of girl. Seriously. Spill! By the way, I know there is more than one person in Russia out there stalking my blog! Internet high fives for the 735 page hits you've given me. And bonus zebra points to the blogger dashboard for giving me that golden piece of information. I'm such a creep.



P.S. Don't judge me too hard for thinking I can write a book anyone beside my mom would read. Wednesdays are my day of inflated self importance. Blame the calendar.

P.S.S. This is officially my 100th blog post. Where is my parade, Google?


  1. UM, I will buy your book and even leave you a glowing review on Amazon, because I'm sweet and supportive like that.

    My favorite bloggity posts of yours are usually hubby/wife stories & dialogue. But I always love when you get deep and serious about it too because relationship dynamics fascinate me and you guys have pretty much the greatest one ever.

    Also if you'd like to include your tips on being HOTT I'd really appreciate those too.

  2. Heh, I have stalkers from Singapore! Google Analytics tell me so LOL.

    I've been blogging on and off since 2007, oh my blog has seen so many reincarnations it's not funny. I'm all for brutal honesty, as you can tell on my blog ha.

    What do I like to read about? I love to read about the real and the raw in another human being's life. I believe we need more of that, more courage to bare who we really are to the world and stand up for our integrity and diversity. I don't believe in good or bad, I believe the concept of morality has done more damage than good and has been abused as an indoctrinated system of control.

    I like to read about another human being's journey through life, which I believe is for Exploration, Experimentation, Experience and Expression. And that's where blogs come in. ;)

    Keep writing, keep sharing, I like it here and I like your writing! ;)

  3. Natalie, you're adorable. I can't tell you how much I love you! And Silver, thank you SO much for stopping by an commenting. Those are the same things I love to read about and I'm so glad I found you're blog :) Hope both you ladies have a wonderful Monday!

  4. I actually found your blog through Silver's blog and I think your blog is so fun. My bff and I get along so well because no one else gets our sarcastic humor ha. I guess we're like an acquired taste? idk lol. I, too, could never stick to a journal as much as it was a great outlet for me and a great idea, but blogging has definitely been my thing. Whoa, I just realized my blog-iversary is coming up at the end of the month! Who would have thought I'd commit to this for a whole year. Whoops, don't mind my random thoughts. Anyways, glad I stumbled on your blog and I can't wait to keep reading more posts!

  5. You make me laugh, Lauren Elizabeth. Any book you'd write, I'd buy ten. And that's a promise. I've started a book too, not about my life, I don't think I'm funny enough to be so self-exposing and still get by with the kind of pee-your-pants laughter that you envoke with your stories. I think the memoir idea is a great one. I think you have a lot to say, and have gone through a lot that people could relate to. Have you read anything written by Chelsea Handler? I think your writing style is very similar and you could get published.

  6. Ashley, you are so sweet to stop by and comment! I'm glad you like it here and I can't wait to check out your blog :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Meggo, you always know exactly what to say to make me smile!!! I have read all of Chelsea's books and you literally just made my entire life by comparing me to her...For serious! You are such an amazing friend and I'm so lucky to call you mine :) Oh, and I would LOVE to read your book when it's finished. With your creativity, I know it's going to be awesome!
