I’m (Finally) Back!!!

Did you miss me???  That’s okay, I didn’t miss you either.

 (You’re  right, I’m lying… I totally did!  How’d you know?)

I really wish I could say I was away exploring Middle Earth or saving muggles.  Unfortunately, the closest I came to doing either was a statement about wanting to watch Hobbit movies and actually watching years 1-6 of Harry’s adventures at Hogwarts.

You would think I would have written quite a bit while not on here…  And you would be wrong.

I also didn’t get much knitting done on the TARDIS.  I did, however, manage to start a whole new project…  new Christmas stockings for the girls (will post pics tomorrow)!!!

Let’s see… what other unproductive thing did I do???

OH YEAH!!!  I went bowling with my girls and sister.   I pretty much SUCK at bowling now.  Not that I was ever all that great…  “back in the day” (I cannot use that phrase without hearing Ahmad singing in my head.)  I had high hopes of hitting 200.  Apparently, I now have to be happy (and excited) to break 100.  (It’s sad, I know!  Especially since my little sister totally kicked my butt the last game!  Embarrassing.  *Sigh*)

About the only productive thing I did manage to do while I was away was have a Guild Wars 2 day with my girls.  We made new Sylvari and leveled to 16. (Productive is a relative term, right?)  Since we’re still pretty new to GW2, I have no idea if this is a feat to actually be proud of or not… but we were pretty impressed with ourselves!

(Side note:  If you’re going to waste an entire day of your life living in an online world… I suggest being proud of ANY achievements made while in fictional form.  It will definitely help to ease and/or eliminate any guilt you may feel later about not achieving things in the less awesome, sometimes depressing real world.)

So what about you guys??  What have you been up to the last week???  What all have I missed in the world of blogs??  Send me links to check out!!!

(I’m feeling a little like I left the planet for a week instead of leaving the internet — Same difference though, I guess.)

UPDATE:  I just checked my spam…  There are a TON of comments in there.  I’m trying to go through it now and see what all I’ve missed, but I don’t reply please don’t take it personally.  It looks like most of what was sent over the last week went there.  I’m not sure why.  😦

Go Away! (Or is that just me?)

You sit down to write, or read, or draw (basically whatever “it” is that you do) and someone comes and sits down or stands right next to you – or behind you.

Suddenly, you can no longer function.  You can’t concentrate on the page or project before you..  All you can concentrate on are the eyes you imagine looking over your shoulder, trying to sneak a peak at whatever it is your doing.  Those eyes are judging your every move (or reading whatever your trying to read or write).

Am I alone?  Am I the only person who feels this way?  Continue reading → Go Away! (Or is that just me?)

Okay, leave me a link in the comments and I will reblog today through Sunday.  One link per post and please, nothing off-color, racist or generally mean.  Some language is okay, but excessive eff bombs will not be reblogged on my page.

Other than that leave as many links as you would like, but remember to return the favor and reblog this link.

So you don’t know me but… You’ve ruined television for me. FOREVER!!!

Dear People Who Cancel All My Favorite Shows on TV:

WHY???  Seriously…HOW COULD YOU????

Ok, I admit it….I don’t have cable.  I have Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime.  Not because I don’t love your shows, but because I don’t have enough free time during the week to devote to watching television.  So, I guess I could see your argument for me contributing to the low ratings…

However, I am not alone.  Everyday there are more and more of us opting out of regular cable and catching our fav shows the next day (or whenever we have a spare hour) on Hulu.  Or we binge watch when we have a free weekend on Netflix.   HELLOOOOO!!!!!  Are you hearing me????  WE ARE YOUR NEW DEMOGRAPHIC!!!  It’s about time you took us into consideration!

As such, I demand that you bring back the following shows ASAP: Continue reading → So you don’t know me but… You’ve ruined television for me. FOREVER!!!
