Oh Goodie! Just What You Were Hoping For! A Post About Posting!

I am aware that my blog has not been the hotbed of breezy elegant disasters lately. I've written about little things here and there, but now I have a backlog of Things To Tell You and I hardly know where to begin.
  • For starters -- I don't know if you remember this -- but in the cleaning and clearing out of my dad's house, a box of my old journals was discovered and I now have them here in SF with me. Some of the entries? From back when? Definitely worth noting.

  • Also, maybe this would be the equivalent to reading about paint drying (or, you know, cat pee) but I would love to give a rundown of the Serious Relationships I've had in my life, because sort of there are a startling number of them. I have been in love a lot. I have almost always had a boyfriend. I don't think this is a problem -- though I've been told repeatedly that it is -- but rather, I think this just makes me good at being in relationships. Some people are good at being single. I am not one of them.

  • There are a bunch of "serious" things I'd like to write about, but have never known where to begin. My mom and her depression. My parents' relationship. On being an orphan at 30. My sister, Sam, who's gotten short shrift here.

  • Oh, well and that little issue of having been dating a married-but-separated man for the last year and a half. It's been a great, awful, terrifying rollercoaster ride. Although with far less crying than one would expect. And I don't think I've told anyone this (hello, everyone), but in the early, heady days of our Romance-Or-Whatever, I did NOT do that thing where you get drunk and cry at your boyfriend...

    [I did learn, however, that this is a common phenomenon, at least in the Bay Area. More on this, too.]

    But! I would get drunk and carry on imaginary conversations with his mother. Alone in my apartment. Out loud.

    Issues.

  • And lots of bits and pieces I've neglected for too long. I haven't drawn anything in a while. I never finished the story of T's birthday weekend. Like, two years ago I said I'd be telling you the worst three things men have ever said to me. I got through the first two: one was here and the other here -- seriously amazing. But I didn't get to the third. Also, maybe I should post about sex sometime.

Plus, now that I have more time (read: not insanely busy with the conference, yet) I will try and be better about acknowledging comments and actually commenting on all of the blogs I read, too.

On another, couldn't be more unrelated note -- WTF is up with Sanjaya? I sort of am hating on American Idol this season. Seriously.

And also I love the Apprentice. Don't tell anyone.

  1. Sanjaya is a punk. Have you noticed he's gotten cockier in the passing weeks?

    There have been some funny Sanjaya parodies - on SNL and Talk Soup. I'm sure they're on You Tube, and definitely worth a look.

  2. It's not inherently *bad* that you've been a relationship-hopper, you just need to take a look at what happened in each of those relationships that could help you in the future. I haven't written mine down in years, but I always made a list after every boyfriend or whatever of "what I've learned" and "What I do/don't want in a boyfriend next time." A couple of those things have really helped me get out of/not start relationships that would have sucked balls.

    I love reading your blog, you're a very good writer, and have if nothing else an exciting life that is fun to hear about from my side of the computer screen. I encourage you to write more, but whatever you like. It's still your damn blog, have fun.

    Best of luck!

  3. Hey Kristy, a friend of mine reads entries from his high school journals at an event called Mortified. They come to San Francisco every few months and are HILARIOUS. Check out this site: http://www.getmortified.com/

  4. I am so jealous. All those potential blog subjects.

    I'm going to cut myself now.
