Things I should be doing instead of agonizing over falling behind for NaBloPoMo…

November 8, 2009

in random

I know myself only too well. I already missed the 8th post for this NaBloPoMo thing I decided to participate in. Deadline yesterday. But I am going to cheat by turning time backwards through the magic buttons on my blog dashboard.

It is not because I am a religious person and I don’t believe in working on Sundays.  That would have thrown a giant monkey wrench in this whole A Blog Post EVERY Day thing. For that conundrum, Pajamas and Coffee had an ingenuous solution. It would have been due to a religious reason if Laziness counts as a religion.  I didn’t write a post yesterday (which is today if you look at the date on this blog) because I actually had lunch with a group of friends and afterwards had a friend over and we finished an entire pot of Spiked Rum Apple Cider.  Social life is very inconvenient when you are an aspiring blogger… Just sayin.

So to make up for the missing day (which is today in case you are confused), I am going to insert a filler post called, “Things I should be doing instead of agonizing over Not Blogging” since that was what I did, inside my head, when I was still sober, the whole day yesterday (today, I mean… Ok. You got it…)

  1. Blogging. Duh.
  2. Doing Quicken. I haven’t touched that baby since July. All of our Credit Card accounts have automatic payment set up, so I have been slacking on reconciling the statements with actual shit that I ordered online.  I am sure by now there have been numerous fraud purchases charged to my litany of cards now.  Well, here is what I am thinking: I HOPE, if there is any fraud charge, it is of a pornographic kind. THAT would be a hilarious topic for my blog to help fill this void I call My NaBloPoMo Idea Bank…
  3. Doing the laundry.  I can’t see the floor in my closet any more because there is a mountain of dirty clothes.  That should be a sign when you need to hurl yourself over the mountain to get to the other side to reach your clean clothes.
  4. Folding the laundry. I HATE HATE HATE folding the laundry. Probably because it means I cannot be on the computer when I am folding the laundry.  There are currently three baskets (the record was five. I love buying laundry baskets) on the family room floor, waiting for me to pay attention to them.  My kids have learned to look into the dryer to find clothes to wear in the morning. Did I tell you that I have the best kids and I love them?
  5. Grocery shopping.  There is no milk nor bread left: The common barometer for how well a household is faring. No milk/no bread = Irresponsible mothers = Ignored kids = Repressed anger = Serial killers

Nope. That’s not an oversight on my part. Believe me, it’s always the MOTHER’S fault…

So there you go. A filler post. Tissues in my bras. White tube socks in my pants. 99% of the stuff found in hot dogs (which I feed my children with. Thank you very much).  The thing they injected into Octomom’s lips…  Oh, you get the idea.

If by ‘ingenuous solution’ you mean I put up 3 posts on Friday to ‘post-date themselves’ because I was going camping then ummm ok but the Sunday post SUCKED! I am like obsessed with HoBloPoPo but ommmgggg i just want it to be over because 30 days straight of posting is gonna drive me insane!
I would also like to say thank you for pledging your allegiance as my minion secondary to your soldiership in the Bloggess Army, of which I am a fellow comrade-in-arms because dude? She is what it is, yes?!
And since I lovvvee being on Blogrolls with Her (and am on Hers which makes me squeeee everyday) I shall now go and add you to the Pajamas and Coffee blogroll because I heart your blog. Hollah!

Dude, not to come off as a total douche canoe, I totally added you to my list right when you commented. So it is a coincidence, ok? I am not a bitch holding out on you, ok? 😉 I meant to do it but I have been busy doing nothing… Thanks for the tip on the Gravatar thingy. I now have a face when I troll the Interweb, well, the WordPress part of the Internet, and not my face but someone else’s, but still a face, and an awesome bicep to boot. I am glad you didn’t get frozen to death or mauled by the bear. :-) November 9, 2009 at 5:26 pm

Hey, this looks liike a real post to me. I’m the queen of lazy/procrastinating. This post makes me feel right at home.

Oh yeah…you might have to get a restraining order.

#5 made me spit. Actually spit! And at my age. Imagine?

What’s next? My teeth falling out?

WTF. I’ll take my chances!

You know how I commented on my blog that I stockpile posts because “I have so much to say?” Well, confession: I may have a lot to say but I’m really just saving up, planning ahead for those lazy days! I have ’em. And it’s nice to know I’ve got sumpin’ up muh sleeve!

Hee. You KNOW that, in addition to giggling at the no-groceries=short cut to serial killers bit, I’m totally filing away the List of Things I Should be Doing as a possible topic for the next day I sit down to blog and draw a blank…

Also? I had a friend (seriously, a friend, not a “friend”) who was known to just go to Target and buy some damn socks when the laundry became overwhelming. Just saying.

If we were not so lazy, we would need to hold a death match to fight for that title… 😉

@ mrsblogalot
Oh brave soul. Please do take your chances. Besides, it’s only fair since your blog gives me a tummy ache from laughing too much.

@ Jane
It’s nice to know YOU have “got sumpin’ up muh sleeve” too! :-) Most of the times the serious topics just hurt my head so I take the lazy way out by googling serious articles on the same topics and tweet about them…

@ Falling
Thank you for visiting me here! I can’t wait to read your list. Actually, judging from your inaugural posts so far, I can’t wait to read whatever you have to say!
