Blogging: The STRESS

It's 11:16 p.m. on Sunday and I FINALLY caught up on all of your posts!

It's becoming clear to me that I have too many blogs in my reader, but I don't feel like breaking up with any of you. What even worse is that I see the lists of other blogs people love or who are honored with one award or another and I think I really should get out to see those folks as well. Of course, all of these are blogs theoretically still in the same community. I'd love to also get out and check out some blogs of people who are living completely different lives than my own (not to suggest you all live the suburban bliss I call my life--but you know what I mean).

Problem is I run out of time most nights to post to my own blog, take part in any of my hobbies or read a book.

Guess I'm going to have to stop doing work at work so I can focus on more important things (just kidding boss).


In the spirit of catching up, I also have just one meme left to complete.

For my pal Dorky Dad, I will complete the following.

List four sentences you've never said before:
1. I love the Boston Red Sox!
2. "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." (at least not yet)
3. I hate shoes.
4. Orgasms are just no fun.

List any number of song titles that describe how you felt this week.
"Ain't It Funny How Time Slips Away"
"Family Tradition"
"Let Me Clear My Throat"
"Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" (I mean it's only April)
"Pride and Joy"
"Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves"
"I Want Candy"
"Welcome to the Jungle"

Imagine you're having the perfect day. What four things would you be doing.
Ummm, my mom is reading...
1. Laying on a beach in the warm tropical sun.
2. Having a fantastic time splashing in the water with the kiddos.
3. Going out on a date sporting a great tan and a sassy sundress.
4. Dancing!!!

Make up five creative names for a rock band.
Creativity is going to be a stretch here. I can barely focus on the screen.
1. Headless Peeps
2. Final Fringe Feeling
3. Egg Popping Chickens
4. Grey is Good
5. Red Snails (In the Sunset)

Congratulations! You get to go back in time and ensure that three songs were never written, thus sparing humanity from ever having to hear them. What three songs would get the axe?
1. Mony, Mony
2. What I Like About You
3. Broken Wings

Phew! I'm exhausted! Sorry you had to read all that.

I'm tagging Mr. Big Dubya because he's been gone for a while and I'm thinking maybe he just needed something to get him back into the swing of things, and JJ because, well, it's been far too quiet over there as well.

Hey! I've never said those 4 sentences either! Don't think I will ever say # 3 or 4....

I have the same problem, and have only about half of the blogroll on my site into my reader. So many people, so much to read and so little time. I feel guilty when I fail to visit the folks at the end of the alphabet. They always are the ones who get left out. :)

I have the same problem with subscribing to too many blogs. There are just so many good writers out there though!!

You're on a blog-a-thon!

Orgasms are just SOO 1990's...washing a wild cat in a tub full of water, now THAT'S where it's at!

Anonymous said...

Orgasms are so overrated.

Did I say that?

Come here now and eat this candy - Easter Bunny brought TOO MUCH! THAT'll get you thru reading blogs quicker, for sure!

I meant to say...
I love your new template!

I'm trying, TRYING, really hard not to take offense to #1. You mean not everyone in American loves the Red Sox? Who knew?

Unknown said...

Soooo ... you're NOT the president?? DAMMIT.

And I don't know what you're talking about. Orgasms are fun. At least my wife tells me that all the time.

J. A. Blackburn said...

I totally agree with you about the blogroll problem... I have a rule for myself where I can only subscribe to a screen's worth of blogs (that's like 35), so now I'm at the point where every time I add one, I have to remove one. It's getting REALLY hard! What's a girl to do??

Those are the best 4 band names ever.

Queen of the Mayhem said...

Please, oh not break up with me! I just could not bear that type of rejection!

I can even go one more that what you said. I catch myself getting jealous if I am leaving a comment on someone's post and I see someone who has not commented on mine. Could I be MORE of a loser? ( Don't answer that!) As if people have nothing better to do than read my blog!

Your meme was hilarious!

Pendullum said...

You got me scared there... Got a nervous twitch...
Do not ever say you do not have time to blog...
It would be so lonely out here without you!!!!
