In which i’m heading to BlissDom


It’s kind of funny that I’m going to a blogging conference tomorrow since I have barely paid any attention to my blog but lets face it, I’m not there to learn.  The reason I went to the first BlissDom was twofold; first my friend Ann wanted to go “learn” how to blog (and Twitter) and second it sounded like fun.


In truth, I did learn a bit about blogging and SEO and all that other crap but very frankly, learning to be a better writer didn’t really appeal to me.  After all, I figure if I’ve managed 53 years with this style of grammar massacre that I might as well keep it up.  If for no other reason than to drive my kids crazy it’s worth it.


Many of the workshops teach you how to write from your “heart” and how to be “honest” with your feelings.  Wow, I’ve put so many words in quotation marks, I’m sure I’ll get reams of shit for that.


I already write whatever I want to being honest isn’t a problem. If anything, being myself usually pisses people off so I should probably learn to curb my tongue but once again, I’m not interested in that either.


Last year at BlissDom I got the stomach flu which I jokingly blamed on Ronnie Dunn and then he had a hissy fit, which sort of amused me as, I had no clue who the asshole was anyways.


This year, I hope to be well because my entire goal is to socialize and have fun.  It’s conceivable I’ll learn something but I highly doubt it as I have come to realize that all the ways of improving my blog involves work and I have absolutely not desire to do that.


Not that I’m ragging on all the people who make a living from blogging; more power to them but it’s just not for me.  I find that when I have to do something that I used to do for fun then its no longer fun therefore if I want something to be fun it can only occupy so much of my mental thought processes.


That’s why I’m thinking of getting rid of my kids.  They were occupying way, way too much of my mental abilities and on top of that, they were causing me stress.  The only reason I had them was because I thought they’d be cute and a great addition to my life.


Little did I know that they’d constantly have worries and problems and somehow involve me in them.  I knew they would when they were little but forever??? Really?


Now, it’s pretty chill what with Keely in California.  Yes she’s constantly falling apart but I guess that’s just going to be part of the norm from now on so I’m going to have to accept that and forget about it.  I’m waiting for her to do something really awesome so that I can feel superior.  That’s why I really had kids.


As an underachiever there wasn’t much I did that was up to bragging about but the awesome things about kids is that if they do something great you get to feel all sorts of pride and yet, you never did any work.  It’s a pretty sweet system.


Hopefully none of them will do anything heinous or wrong because I suppose I would have to take the blame for that although, isn’t that what Kevin is for? Hmmm…I’ll have to ponder that.


Andie and Daniel are down at school so for the most part, they’re self sufficient although Andie does enjoy calling to whine.  The only reason I resent that is because I also like to whine and it bugs me when my kids steal my thunder.


Why, just last week somebody asked Daniel (in my presence) who the funniest person in the family was and he replied “Andie.”  That’s why I left him in California and refused to fly him home.  Traitor.


Anyways, that’s where I’m at and that’s what’s going on.  Hope all is well with you guys and perhaps I’ll have some fun, drunken stories for you.  Hope so!
