Admitting You Have A Problem

While brushing our teeth before bed this weekend...

Supreme Leader: I couldn't believe it when I saw that picture of your cleanser. You're losing your male audience.

Me: (Waves hand in a dismissive gesture that says both "I know I'm a man, baby," & "there aren't that many of them anyway.") The chicks dig it.

Supreme Leader: (rolls eyes)

Me: (laughing) I blog everything in my head now, everything. (Pauses while he tries to remember commenting on somebody else's blog about the same thing) I'm blogging this conversation right now.

Supreme Leader: You're a fool.

Me: I gotta go write this down...

  2. My new favourite saying, "You know I'm totally going to blog about this, right?"
    When you have little pieces of paper, grocery store receipts, and all the envelopes for your bills have little blog anecdotes written on them, you know you have a problem. And welcome to my world. ;)

  3. Pretty much everything I do ends up with me trying to decide if it's blogworthy. I come up with great topics and posts while driving. Unfortunately, they're usually forgotten by the time my laptop is up and running!

  4. How sad is it that we end up grabbing a camera in order to catch our child's antics and misbehaving not for posterity sake, but for site traffic? No, really. I want to know.

  5. Fifth! What sort of hand wave was it? Was there wrist action? Any snaps or head/neck roll? That could be why the menfolk are a runnin. Also, tell Spreme Leader that women are more particular about the company they keep. Those men commentors don't really want you, they just want a warm body. But in the same breath, let me just state for the record, that I agree with Bern 100% on this one.

  6. I'm having dejavu about this, and I think it was Blissfully Caffeinated that brought this up long ago, but maybe you could do some DIY posts here. You don't seem to be loving your orange counter tops. I, on the other hand, love them and look forward to a bathroom post from you. Perhaps you could do a tutorial on how to replace them? If that's too much trouble, maybe you could "accidentally" place Supreme Leader's bra in the background. Men will come a flockin!

  7. that is why my hubby doesn't kow about my blog - if he did I'd be in a heap of trouble (he's very private) and he'd think I have completely lost my marbles! LOL

  12. No, no, we're living life to it's fullest and drinking in every detail. It just so happens that it ends up in our blogs.

  13. i'm kind of like the 'seinfeld' of blogging...i blog about absolutely nothing-mostly random crap. ha. but, i did use the things hubby would tell me were said in the car by his son and the boys he would take to football. funny stuff as seen in my 'football confessionals'. however, the funniest of them all was taken out of football because his parents were not pleased w his grades. the other two boys were not that good either.

    anyways, when people say or do something funny, it always makes for great fodder lol btw i can't tell you how many 'football confessionals' i didn't blog because i didn't write them write away and forgot!

  20. Do you and Supreme Leader get along? I just have this feeling...

    You're funny, btw. I try to remember every conversation I have during the day and try to figure out how I can turn it into a post. And my kids have revolted...they don't want me posting as much about them without their permission?!! Suckers.

  21. >snort< Permission?! >snort<

    I tell my kids, hey, I've changed your names, what more do you want??

    And then my son made me sign a 'Parental Non-disclosure Form.' I didn't know there was such a thing. Now I'm unable to blog about him in any way, AND, I can't compete with his Mother's affection for any purpose, unless I'm relocated or my parental patents have expired. I don't even get to claim parental intellectual property.

    Go figure.
