Now that you bring it up



I have been in a rather odd blogger mood as of late. This may come as a suprise to many of you since taken on the surface, I always seem to be in an odd mood.

It's not even a full moon. Maybe it is the weather. Seattle has had its wettest month in history. Throw in some violent wind storms, flooding, power outages, the elections, and a re-organization and move where I work and I may have pinpointed why I'm feeling odd.

Or maybe it is the blog community. I'm always a bit sad when blogger's disappear, go through identity crises' or stop visiting or posting. In the microcosm of life that is the blog world, it is sometimes difficult not to think of the bloggers I read and read me are friends. I don't know about the rest of you, but I get caught up in your lives and sometimes worry about how you are really doing outside the virtual reality existence online. And in the words of my mother, "You never write anymore."

But then again, in the real world, friends come and go and I really don't have much control over it. It's the karmic nature of life. Our paths collide and branch off as the universe deems necessary.

So odd or not, I try to blog regularily to maintain some kind of continuity in the universe I live in at Dizgraceland. It's not much, but it is mine. But most anyone is welcome to drop in when they feel like it.

Or not.

The words you speak are true,
We're all humans in a stew,
We pledge no aligiance too,
The Blog World!

Strange as it may seem your not alone in your thoughts.
My blogs come fresh, I don't type them up go over them with a fine tooth comb, file them a way, ponder whether I have offended anyone then post it.
Nope......type it up, quick squiz and post. In some cases I may post 3-4 times in a couple of days then nought.
Depends on what I have planned and my mood.
I get to the stage where if I dont finish and post there and then I feel it's not worth the effort!
Most times I am too busy leaving comments all over the place....
Ahhhhh to have Seattle's rain tis is but a fantasy.....sigh!

like whitesnake, I tend to blurt and run. bu† I go to other websites to find out "how my friends are doing." still, isn't that like the telephone conversations of friends?

sounds like life has been pretty disruptive around you, and yet you never tell that...

btw, I really find that pic disturbing. really.

Whitesnake, my poetic friend, the best blogs are from the heart and not sweated over. And you are more than welcome to our rain.

Hayden, You snuck in while I was replying to Whitesnake. Except on rare occasions, I tend not to drag my day to day life into my blog. I prefer to write about random things. It is my release from the structure of what I do at work. And I kind of find the photo disturbing too, but in a good way :o

I leave my own thoughts of this to a post. See you there.

Ah yes, Tim, this weather is not only mercurial, but also f%*king sucks! This little blogger, however, isn't going anywhere & of course, she now has her hubby, spouse, best bud, partner in crime, etc. who has (unsuspectingly) become addicted to Dizgraceland (God or Goddesses help him) ...so, keep on writing dear friend and know that you are not alone. Much peace, JP

Um, yeah, what Scully said...

Actually, Tim, do you think you might reconsider the H. R. Giger Kool-Aid?

Wouldn't it be better to think of squirrels and otters? Or may be even pandas...yeah, they're peaceful. How about mantatees?

Thanks JP, Trust no one!

Footpad, The image is reminiscent of Alien, isn't it? Though it should be bursting out of my belly. But I don't know nuthin' about birthin' no aliens.

Free the manatees!
