So how’s about I introduce a new blog layout and then drop off the face of the blogosphere?
My fellow royals are nothing if not amazingly supportive and awesome. For example, my friend John, who not only granted me permission to cite his real name on my blog – how’s that for confidence? – but regularly shares the things he finds on my blog with other people. It’s not unusual for someone to say to me “Oh, John was telling me about this thing he saw on your blog.” In fact, I’ve gotten used to that.
John usually reads my blog and then tells the missionaries what I’ve written, so it’s even like service since the missionaries can’t read my blog themselves (nor would I want them to, they’re too busy and important for things like that). Which is almost frustrating when I write about the missionaries and then he tells them what I’ve said about them. Except that I know he’s doing it so it can’t be all bad. Hi, Elders : )
John also called me up to share his opinion on the layout. “The font,” he said. “I can’t read it. The blue, on the white – just no.” To which I was all “Ugh, get glasses” and he was all, “Your mom needs glasses,” and I was all “Yeah, she wears them.”
Actually, no. I agreed. I agreed with almost everyone who suggested ways I could improve my new layout. Bottom line – you know me. This won’t last. I have to redo my blog layout every quarter or so or I get too bored with it to cope.
I’m working on a cold, which is the worst feeling because you know it’s coming and you’re powerless to stop it. Obviously I’m starting with the arsenal of products that claim to help this.
Lately I’m pretty much in love with the greek yogurt that comes with honey. Except that the kind that comes with honey on the side in its own separate plastic section is 2% and my mother is all “let’s get the nonfat kind” and I agree, foolishly, and she comes home with this fat free “honey on the bottom” type and I take it to my office and when I open the container it looks like this:
Which is not, in fact, honey on the bottom – it’s honey that leached through and now my yogurt looks like rotting. But I eat it anyway and it’s fine, but tastes mostly like plain old yogurt because of the leaching so the sweet is all mixed in and the honey is not as good as the other kind and about halfway through the pot I realize there are lumps and think “maybe this really is rotting” but I still eat it anyway because it tastes okay and it doesnt expire until next month. So if I end up dying in the next 48 hours from some weird bacterial thing…you know why.
Oh, royal subjects, why do you put up with me? Is it because you’re just dying to read my novels? Or that you love hearing about them in passing? Because those two novels I wrote….are now one. Yup. I smooshed them together. And by smooshed I mean it was far tidier, sort of like how you shuffle a deck of cards. But this is in anticipation of something far more awesome that will happen hopefully sooner rather than later. Oh, and it will be so awesome, you have no idea.
Again, I ask you, why do you put up with me? I’m all dropping hints about the shadowy uncertain future that I’m not confident enough to blog about just yet but I’m so excited about the mere possibility of them that I can’t help but drop hints. Why do you tolerate this from me?
Admit it. You must love me to put up with it.
